try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

lots of random things

I can't FIND my cell phone, and I dunno about clever, but otherwise, yeah:

You Are From Mercury

You are talkative, clever, and knowledgeable - and it shows.
You probably never leave home without your cell phone!
You're witty, expressive, and aware of everything going on around you.
You love learning, playing, and taking in all of what life has to offer.
Be careful not to talk your friends' ears off, and temper your need to know everything.

Best. Answer. Ever. OMG:

Your Daddy Is Pedro Martinez

What You Call Him: Pa

Why You Love Him: He gives good spankings


You Are a Liberal for Life

You've got a bleeding heart - and you're proud of it.
For you, liberal means being compassionate, pro-government, and anti-business.
You believe in equality for every person, and you consider yourself universally empathetic.
Helping others is not just political for you ... it's very personal too.

Toldya New England is just a lot like Canada:

You Passed the US Citizenship Test

Congratulations - you got 8 out of 10 correct!

Also, Howard Dean for Prime Minister.

Except we need him here, right where he is, so forget about it. besides, I have a tiny, tiny crush on Monsieur Dion, anyway

I can't really figure out why he was chosen, though. I mean, why an American? I guess it was because of his success a. with his grassroots internet campaigning (no, he didn't win, but he changed the face of political campaigning forever, and for the good, IMO, because it got the average you-and-me citizen to participate AND set him in a perfect spot to become DNC chairman), and/or b. as chairman of the Democratic National Committee, because obviously he did something right if the Democrats now control Congress. Yes, a lot of it was because the Republicans did almost everything wrong, but still. Howard's a great organizer, and that's what he did.

The fact that he was governor of a border state might have something to do with it, because he talks about that in his speech.

The video of Dr. Dean's speech is here. I'm such a Howard Dean fangirl that it isn't even funny. I don't always agree with everything, but his heart is always in the right place. Go him.

Yes, I am a dork. I thought we established that.

In other news, Little Mosque on the Prairie is very cute. It's done well, too, so I'll get to see more than just the eight episodes, hopefully.

Also wtf, Dubya?. Go. Away. Now.

Jesus on a Segway, even Republicans are opposing this horrible, terrible plan. "When mistakes have been made, the responsibility rests with me." Damn straight it does. If you really believe this, though, why are you saying "OMG, if we left, the middle east would fall apart"? Um, if that's true, YOU caused it by attacking Iraq in the first place, you utter, utter hypocrite. And now you're sending more kids off to a war that isn't ours. Channel Nixon much, Junior? I wish someone would channel Woodward and Bernstein and get you kicked out on your arse.

And there we go, with "Al Qaeda is still active in Iraq". Same old propaganda, and he's saying it to reinforce the whole (entirely fictional) Saddam-Sept.11 connection.Maybe Al Qaeda is active in Iraq, but I bet it wasn't nearly as active, if at all, before the U.S. decided to take down Saddam (there are plenty other dictators as bad or worse, but they weren't sitting on a bunch of oil). And, um. He's dropping Joe Lieberman's name as an example of bipartisanship? This would be funny if it weren't so incredibly pathetic.

"They have watched their comrades give their lives to insure our liberty." No they haven't, they've watched their comrades give their lives for a horrible mistake made by an idiot."

And oh. Tony Blair is backing Bush, but at least he's not sending more troops in.

I hadn't planned on ranting, honest. Dubya has that affect on me. :/
