Out of touch–or not

So I lose my internet connection for a week and am out of touch with things for the duration, more or less. Hunkered down now in a bunker at a secure, undisclosed location which is NOT a tiny, squalid, pestiferous room at Li’l Jimmy’s Love Shack Motel and Ballroom, just let me take a moment here to check around and see what’s changed in the interim.

Hmmm. Republicans, all a-tremble at liberal-media polling that shows their popularity slightly less than that of rectal polyps but above that of poisonous blood-sucking insects, cave on the joke of a “shutdown.” Ogabe gets another blank check, then turns around and petulantly blames his hated enemies for the “crisis” he created himself, and denounces elected representatives trying to represent the wishes of the people who sent them to Mordor on the Potomac in the most hateful terms–as “ideologues,” yet. FederalGovCo’s insane spending continues to skyrocket out of control, and Senate GOPers pack the bill ending the shutdown-that-wasn’t with yet more pork.

The liberal media weeps openly over the “pain” suffered by the merest handful of Americans by the shutdown, and the useless bureaucrats momentarily furloughed get a bonus two weeks’ worth of unscheduled paid vacation. Meanwhile, tens of indigents, layabouts, and Obama campaign workers (sorry for the redundancy) somehow manage to negotiate the intricate tangle of dysfunctional web forms and servers collapsing under the load of dozens of simultaneous users, only to sign up for “free” healthcare that turns out to be shockingly expensive.

WELL. I can see it’s a whole new ballgame out there. And also that it’s time for another nap. A long one.

    Is it somewhere within the brick and steel of a nondescript building? Give my regards to Mark. 😀
