This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

Listening, but not watching
So I was listening last night to the debate, but not watching. I was multi-tasking. I'm a multi-tasking kind of guy. I was working on my new blog, The Unified Football Theory, putting in lots of hours into a project that is still trying to find an audience. Now I know how no_slappz must feel, slaving away at a blog that nobody reads. Of course, I've been at it two and a half months and he's been at it a year, but still, I know how he feels.
He feels like a loser. So few people read his stuff, he feels compelled to go someplace where his comments will be read by more people in one day than will read his blog in a month.
But like I said, I've been at it two and a half months. Lotsa 'Splainin' 2 Do took some time to get off the ground, too. So I'll keep with it over at the football blog. That's how I roll.
So I'm listening and I get this impression.
John McCain knows a lot.
He knows how to win wars, though we kinda lost the one he fought in.
He knows how to fix Social Security. He'll fix it by screwing people like me who have paid into it for our entire working lives.
He knows how to find Bin Laden, though he's been keeping it a secret from George W. Bush because... well, because screw that guy! I mean, remember what Bush did to McCain in 2000? Apparently, Cindy McCain doesn't remember because she thinks Barack Obama is running the dirtiest campaign in American history.
When you've done as many drugs as Cindy has done, the memory is the first thing to go.
Yes, John McCain knows a lot of stuff, and he knows a lot of folks, too. Look at the maverick having fun with his pals, Lieberman, Graham, Walnuts his own bad self and Gramm. Mavericky mavericks each and every one!
You think Sarah Palin will be invited to one of these little gabfests? Aw, hellz no, as we say in Oakland. Sometimes you want to be with your boyz, and these are them. You just want to get away from the distractions (read: bitchez) and chill with the peeps who have been there since back in the day.
I heard McCain say Warren Buffett might be his Secretary of the Treasury.
Phil Gramm would have a much bigger voice on the economic policy in the unlikely event of a McCain Administration than Buffett ever would.
Yay, Flags of Many Lands! Yay, Lao People's Democratic People's Republic!
What would somebody from a dirty commie country want on this blog? A country turned dirty commie when McCain and his honorable comrades in arms failed miserably to win a war war back when Matty Boy was a pup?
They were looking for pictures of the Politburo.
McCain and his pals look like they have a lot more fun than these miserable bastids.
I'd bet my share of the national debt Leonid Brezhnev never said, "Fuck it! Let's blow this pop stand, fly up to Atlantic City and shoot some craps!"
