  1. i can’t imagine that anyone, even laura, would be willing to give dubya a blow job, but that’s just me…

  2. Well, unlike the similar resolutions adopted by various townships — full of happy liberal monkeys no doubt — that have no weight on the federal level, this one invokes a rule that does have the feddy weight going for it, to wit, the first WHEREAS in the document. And Illinois, as a state, is not considered a hotbed of libs.

    And it beats waiting around for someone to give the Shrub a blowjob so we can impeach him.


  3. there’s a bunch of minor stuff that, if taken by itself, would probably not be all that depressing, but apart from the fact that i’ve been diagnosed with bipolar II disorder (several years ago, and i don’t totally agree with it), i also apparently suffer from PTSD, so all that “normal” stuff doesn’t really apply to me… it seems like everything was looking up a week or two ago, but all of the stuff that looked so promising a couple of weeks ago has either completely fallen through, or not turned out to be as positive as it appeared a couple weeks ago…

  4. It looks so beautiful, but I doubt anything good will ever come of it.

    Why are you so depressed?

  5. Hrm. That’s a novel way of doing things – wish it would do more than just be symbolic, but maaaaybe….?
