So I woke up this morning...

...and booted up the little Eee 'book and started to open a fresh tab so I could open CNN.com and find something to snark about, and you know what?

Just no.

For today and tomorrow, the news of the outside world is just gonna have to snark at itself. I have some eatin' and shootin' and socializin' to do, and I don't need to ruin it by reading about what some jackhole in DC is doing to bum my high, man.

Woke up this morning I looked 'round for my shoes
You know I had those mean old walking blues
Yeah, I woke up this morning I looked 'round for my shoes
Girl, I had those, ooh, mean old walking blues

When I read you post title I was ashamed you didn't belt out some good Delta/Chicago Blues.

BTW why didn't the .32-20 blues ever get any love? Its my favorite Robert Johnson song!

My B.P. has dropped by about 30 points since I stopped obsessively watching news three weeks ago.

Still grumpy, but not grinding teeth and clenching fists all day long...

Dude, I'll fire when I see the whites of their eyes but right now don't harsh my mellow.

With Herman Cain looking stronger in the polls, does that mean we might get to vote for an actual, like, American to be President? Well, I hope so, anyway.

"Herman Cain. We got the Godfather. And he makes Pizza."

Brad K, while Having Cain as president has all sorts of appeal from the he's-not-libertarian-but-I-can-tolerate-where-he-differs standpoint, you do have to realize one thing:

We'll never stop hearing about the conspiracy of the Government-Pizza Complex.

Every damned time Godfather's Pizza delivers pizza to a government office, there will be some Daily Kos contributor or Current TV correspondent opining bitterly about the no-bid contracts and unpublished solicitations that Godfather's Pizza is filling due to their unseemly prior association with Mr Cain.

If Mr Cain has pizza at any time during his tenure as president in the company of anyout outside his cabinet, the MSM will call it a "pizza summit".

I wouldn't put it past the Perpetually Aggrieved Progressives to declare pizza as a politically incorrect food, thus leading to the collapse of several pizza purveyors in Blue enclaves, further adding to the unemployment problem. Pizza will no longer be served in public school cafeterias, out of solidarity between the teacher's unions and their bought-and-paid-for elected officials.

The 90s version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cartoon will be absolutely verboten. There will be a gritty reboot of the TMNT cartoons more faithful to the comics books, where the Turtles were totally sick of pizza after being trapped in a pizzeria while hiding out for a few weeks.

@ Tirno,

I can appreciate your concern. Can you imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth, at an Executive Order forbidding the NLRB to meet, unless they order out for Godfathers Pizza and refuse to hear the union's side of any dispute?

And what if Cain were to present Congress with a balanced budget, restricted to a sound basis for paying off the national debt -- that just happens to drop tax rates, increase revenue, revive the economy, and put Americans back to work, all wrapped around a Constitutional Amendment for line-item veto? (How long since we heard *that* proposed?) Or fired everyone that got their job via a recess appointment?

Well, time will tell if the nation can survive the remedy Dalmas proposed with his novel, "The General's President". Well, maybe part of that remedy, I don't see getting amendments forbidding the US government to collect taxes, or to accumulate a debt, at least, not this year. But then, I want to get off the trajectory Maureen F. McHugh lays out in "China Mountain Zhang", with China taking possession of the debt-ridden American government, and dissolving it.
