Well I tried to make it Sunday, but I got so damn depressed
That I set my sights on Monday and I got myself undressed,..

Needless to say, with this head cold, that didn't work out. Though I did raise a smile when my supervisor (female) asked if I was wearing a painter's mask because I was sick - I told her no, it was simply becoming too damned obvious my good looks were interfering with her work performance. Whoo-boy, what a card! (Who says I'm not fun-loving?)
I also got great reviews for my job commitment, I'm happy to say.
So what's going on out there? Kind of a mixed bag:
Arnold Schwarzenegger finally admitted he admired Hitler, which got me to thinking A) it is really difficult for most people to own up to their bullshit - he said he loved Der Fuhrer back in 1975 - and B) is it any wonder, as often as I've made the NewAge/Nazi connection, California's culture elected Arnie to office? It was like flies to honey.
Well, actually more like flies to flies, but whatever.
Even Ann Althouse has gotten in on the conspiracy theory game, and - considering she and Sullivan are part of Glenn Reynolds' circle - that should tell you what kind of "thinking" our most elite bloggers are marinating in during this election.
It's completely bonkers - not just that they'll go there, but that anyone would respect their opinion after they do so.

"I was taught from the time I was a little girl that any kind of discrimination was wrong."Now compare that to Glenn Reynolds' answer to Ann Althouse when she charged him with stirring up racial animosities:
"There’s an instrumental argument that folks on the right need to take this into account, but beyond that, I confess I don’t much care."
Come on - who should be the "thought leader" here?
