I went for the context

And the killer bees…

I’ll catch the content of Stewart and Colbert’s performance on the tube. Meanwhile, I found it odd that so many people brought their dogs but none brought their kitties. Geraldo Rivera suggests that this represents a lack of diversity in the sanity movement.

Rivera’s contention is absurd. There was enormous canine diversity, inclusive of even this little fellow, dressed seasonally in his shark suit.

Diversity? Heck, there were even Ninja Turtles representing…

… and a certain black, tri-colored Aussie. Molly, does your mom know where you are tonight?

It had kind of a Woodstock vibe… except the music, well the music was good, but… well, okay. It didn’t have that kind of Woodstock vibe. But it was meaningful as all get out.

Will the Dems really lose seventy or eighty seats in the House? Will they lose their Senate majority? Will Wisconsin voters dummy up and vote against Senator Feingold?

October 29, 2010

The Jon and Condi Show

October 21, 2010

Carlos Lozada, the editor of The Washington Post’s Outlook section recently suggested that Jon Stewart cancel the Rally to Restore Sanity. This would leave me with a useless prepaid round-trip ticket from fly-over country so naturally I disagree. Lozada further opined: We don’t need you to hold a rally to restore America’s sanity.
