Back from vacation… what's up?
Sorry for the lack of posts over the past four days. I took a couple of days vacation on Thursday & Friday, then Saturday was my Halloween gig (I’ll post more on that when I’ve downloaded the pictures) and Sunday was Football Sunday (or as we Packers’ fans are calling it, Weekly Day of Mourning).
I should take vacation more often. Seems like when I don’t post all the good political stuff happens. Harriet “I ♥ GWB” Miers had to withdraw her nomination to the SCOTUS… because Bush’s own party forced it! A five count indictment against “Scooter” Libby was handed down on Fitzmas, with more investigation of Rove and the other war criminals soon to follow. Bush’s approval ratings are coming in at a record low 39%.
And in sad news (that I’m not celebrating and for which I would be just as pissed at a President Kerry or President Gore), October was the 5th-deadliest month of the Iraq War, with 96 coalition troops killed in combat, bringing the total to 2,026.
Now, what’s this I hear about a “Scalito”? That sounds like some sort of shrimp-based Mexican dish, doesn’t it? “Yo quiero una Scalito grande, por favor, con frijoles negro y salsa picante!” Whatever it is, it’s giving me heartburn already…
