I was messing around with the permalinks settings and bolluxed up the blog.
Yes. It looks funny.
I’m off to dinner, then will be back to address it.
UPDATE Friday, November 11, 2011 6:42am: I bolluxed up the blog last night, still haven’t fixed it, and will do it, but I just saw something so jaw-droppingly STUPID I had to post it – even on my po’ bwoke blog. (My babies, my twins, are 13 today, 11-11-11, so I may not even get to fix it for sure until Sunday, given our birthday event schedule which started last night and goes all the way through Sunday, but I’m hoping I can restore it to it’s epic beauty before then! 😉 )
Okay! The STUPID thing: Perhaps you’ve heard a new batch of Nixon tapes was released. This isn’t, in itself, especially notable, because this has happened before – BUT – some of the tapes were Grand Jury testimony. Grand Jury testimony doesn’t ever have to be released, unless the Attorney General decides that it’s of ‘such historical value’ it can be.
Eric Holder has just released just such a batch.
I learned about it watching a Politico reporter on MSNBC just now. I ACTUALLY saw The Politico reporter have the words form in his mouth, and then speak them, that Eric Holder didn’t *have* to release this Nixon Grand Jury testimony, but did it because it was of such historical significance, AND BLOW RIGHT PAST that thought and go on to just discuss the tapes themselves. OMG…
NOTHING? THE REPORTER BONE IN HIS HEAD HAS NOT A SPECK OF CURIOUSITY AS TO THE POSSIBILITY THAT HOLDER HAS OTHER MOTIVES? JUST THAT HE’S DOING IT OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF HIS HEART??
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
THIS SCANDAL-RIDDEN, ISSA-HUNTED, BLOW-OFF SUBPOENAS A.G. would, evidently, JUST OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF HIS HEART AND ASSUMED PART-TIME HOBBY AS AN AMATEUR HISTORIAN…
RELEASE THESE NIXON TAPES? TO HELP MANKIND?
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
The lack of curiosity on the part of this reporter is, to me, akin to not ducking when you see an asteroid incoming. It’s a BASIC FRIGGING INSTINCT that has to be BRED or SOMEHOW SOCIALIZED out of you TO NO LONGER EXIST. It VIOLATES the NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS.
He should not only be FIRED, he should be ASHAMED of himself.
(I think it was Politico’s Mike Mullen, but I’m not 110% sure.)
