Wanna Talk Mandate NOW, Georgie?
Well, the good news is that my natural paranoia about stealing elections turned out to be false and after 6 years of single-party government, the USA returns to a democratic system of government. The Democrats won the House by a huge margin, the Senate is JUST in Democratic hands, and George Bush has either got to learn humility and compromise or accomplish nothing in his last two years. I wish Nancy Pelosi had not promised not to seek impeachment for him, because if there’s any president who deserved it, it’s him. Perhaps, the grass roots will take it out of her hands
And the latest good news is that Don Rumsfeld has decided to scoot (or has been told to scoot) after four years of uncomprehending and uncompromising incompetence. I’m told there were cheers you could hear from the Pentagon all the way in Nordstrom’s in the mall across the street–the street being I-395! We’ll miss you Don, but hey, stuff happens …
The fun news of course is one of the election glitches that happened in Colorado. I haven’t been able to find out much more, but 41 out of 50 laptops seem to have been disabled by a squirrel at some point in time yesterday. Probably the squirrel ate through a cable connecting the laptops to the net (the best I can figure) but the only link to it I can find is through Wonkette, so click here for the link (Wonkette) Terrorist Squirrel Causes Chaos in Colorado
Now the bad news. I got an answer from Google–NOT by mail or email, of course, but by action. Remember how there were only 42 cartoons (out of an already reduced 386) left on Google Image Search because they’d subjected it to the Chinese censorship criteria and left China UNcensored? and how after I alerted them, they fixed China but left the US results censored? And how I wrote them again? WELL, guess what? There are only TEN (10) images now for my image search results! And two of those are my header and sidebar images! I’ve decided I’m NOT paranoid, someone IS out to get this page at Google. Yup folks, THIS PAGE IS TOO POLITICALLY DANGEROUS FOR GOOGLE. Or at least for someone who can alter search results who works there. I’m not sure of my next step, but believe me, it’s time to escalate. I’ll let you know if there’s anything YOU can do
This Friday, being Veteran’s Day, we’ll be taking the day off, so we’ll be back on Monday with more HAIL DUBYUS!
