Middleborough goes all small town, makes ass of itself.

Grabbing this from Daily Pundit, because I’m way too fucking lazy to bother with a local news source. Also, I like his take on it. I thought we’d outgrown these stupid wanna-be moral crusades (excuse me, stupid fucking wanna-be moral … Continue reading

Had a rare interlude of TV available without kids and not needing/wanting to do laundry, dishes, etc., which led me to discover Atlas Shrugged Part 1 was on Netflix. So I watched it again. Went to great lengths to see … Continue reading

Looking Forward to This!

Poll Results

No not like this poll or that poll, but one of those periodic Right Wing News polls of bloggers I sometimes participate in, as I did this one. Speaking of those polls, McCain was all over the map in the … Continue reading

Election Dementia

There seems to have been a real ramping-up lately of the stupid in these parts. I notice it most in how aggressively people are driving…it’s been bad, even for around here. I see it in the customers at work, too. … Continue reading

John Hawkins did a flash poll, in which I participated, on the bailout. Interesting results, more skewed than I had expected. The last question, though, looks like people answered based not on where they stood, but what they thought public … Continue reading

Lopsidedly Hypothetical

There’s another Instapundit poll I just had to point to because the results are so fascinating (and it’s an interesting question, which I’d love to see the results of if the 1st place finisher were excluded). The question: If you … Continue reading
