And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Weekend Linkee-poo, John Barleycorn must die

Irene Gallo with picturing autumn. Welcome, Fall, my favorite time of year. She has quit a number of Wyeths, whose pallet works very well with fall. In my head, I can see the Ruritans Halloween Party Poster I want to do, but probably don't have time. It's a closeup of a Dia De Los Muertos skeleton in a flattopped part hat with little fuzz balls dangling, just the skull, a few vertebra, and the brim of the hat done like a black velvet painting. Yeah, that's about 8 hours of illustration and I don't have the free time. Oh, the things we designers see that never make it to paper.

And so begins the purges after the revolution. After the conservatives lead by Mitt Romney tried to paint the president with the brush of "ZOMG, they're killing our Ambassadors - it's Carter all over again!" I doubt you'll hear them say much about this. (Grokked from Cherie Priest)

"'Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring,' (Ann Romney) said," about the criticism of her husband. What. The. Fuck?! Really? Really? A campaign where people will actually take what you've said and run with it and you think that's the hard part? If she gets into the White House, I wonder how she'll take it when people think her choice of china pattern is de classe or criticize her choice of Christmas Tree ornaments as pedestrian? And while it may seem a little thing, it's not. This is their mind set. This is Sarah Palin resigning because there's too much negative press. If I didn't hold this position before, that right there would be the point that I say, "These people aren't ready for prime time." (Grokked from Jay Lake)(Edited to fix link, sorry about that folks)

Sandra Fluke, the Bill O'Reilly fetish. And that also shows a problem with conservatives, in the face of actual facts, they will cleave to their bubble story. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

The Texas Secretary of State said, "Weed out your dead (from voter lists)." Four voters come forward to say, "I'm not dead, yet." Four. In one county in Texas that more that any year's fraudulent votes nationwide. Also, forgot to get the DoJ approval for that change first. Oopsie. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
