What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Things that burn my ass

Gee, it couldn't have been about raising money, could it? And it's not like Gov. Brewster ever got things wrong before. Look, we can disagree all we want, but can you imagine the conservative outrage and blustering if this had been a Democratic governor and a Republican president? I mean, Rush would have had to go back on the oxycontin after blowing an artery. Fox News would be running it 24/7 about how "those dirty liberals disrespect the office of the President" (how do I know this? because I lived through the aughts and I have a memory of when they said that). Now? Crickets. Well, no, actually it's getting play that Gov. Brewer gave it to the President good. Tell me again how this isn't a show of hypocrisy? Tell me again how this isn't dog whistling? 'Cause I keep forgetting.

Actually, I just keep going back to this.

I loved that show.

Maybe I'll spend the rest of 2012 watching West Wing reruns while the news is on. My blood pressure would thank me.

Yeah, I've lately been thinking of running it as background noise. I have all the episodes that Aaron Sorkin wrote. The show kinda fell apart for me after he left. The new writing crew seemed too in love with the forms Aaron used, but didn't understand the story he was telling with the forms.
