Edtor’s note: Once again as in years past, I’ve found my inbox filled with messages from longtime readers who wonder if I’m going to be re-posting “A Bithead’s Christmas”, and begging me to do so. As I believe I’ve told you in previous years, I get more email about this one single post, these 2900 […]

Actually, I unduly disparage village idiots.   The village idiot, better known as Joe Biden who by our misfortune is Vice President of the United States uttered: “You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan. Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was […]

Oneanta, NY-  I’m set to deliver at Latham, NY in the morning. Sorry for the long time between posting a Ramble, but the internet connectivity is an issue again. It’s frustrating because I don’t understand WHY.  (shrug) Only one topic, today…. because frankly, it’s all I’ve had time to follow:   Iowa:Thanks to Art Smith […]

Elizabeth Scalia, a/k/a  Anchoress has a few parting words for Speaker Tablecloth,  b/k/a Nancy Pelosi should she decide to leave Congress, link: I hate to sound presumptuous, but Madam Speaker, on behalf of many, may I say let-not-your-heart-be-troubled about relieving yourself of obligations you have more than met. Besides, if you stay much longer in […]

Steven L. Taylor, Outside the Beltwy: First, why get all bent out of shape over an initiative to encourage healthier eating (and this isn’t the first time this has come up)? It is not as if we are talking about some sort of authoritarian push to shut down fast food joints and to force us […]

Daughter like Mother. Just as Chelsea Clinton’s mother thought sleeping in the residential wing of the White House somehow qualified her to run the executive wing, Clinton thinks being endowed with a famous name, her father’s nose and her mother personality, or lack thereof, gives her qualifications as broadcast journalist, from an under impressed Washington […]

I note with some degree of interest with a resurgency  of Newt Gingrich in the early polling for Iowa.  There seems a good deal of objection to his showing up, particularly among the press who like Rick Perry and Herman Cain before him (and Michelle Bachman and Sarah Palin before him… ) is now the […]

How bad is the lame stream media?   The lame streamers think the President’s opinion of on our closest allies and the the only democracy in the Middle East is somehow private, from Ynetnews: According to a Monday report in the French website “Arret sur Images,” after facing reporters for a G20 press conference on Thursday, […]

I’ve held off on commenting in the minutiae surrounding the Michael Jackson affair, and trial, mostly because it simply didn’t interest me.  I have kept a loose eye on it, however, enough to understand that they had his doctor on trial for the death. He’s now been convicted. The verdict here seems to me a […]

Roterdam,NY– I’m here dropping off a load of walnuts, that I brought up from Jersey. Nothing overly special to report… except that it’s been a bust few days so far. I may have something special to talk about tonight, however. Now the Slur Machine gets warmed up against Cain: Over at OTB, they’re playing the […]

Auburn,MA– Came in around 0130. I’m dropping a load of foam plates as this is written and will go from here to Newburgh,NY, and then who knows where. It’s been a fairly easy week so far, and as a result of some dumb luck, I’ve managed to rack up most of my base miles for […]

08:37am— I’d come into work just like any other morning. Where I was working at the time is closed, now, and so is the department that I was working for. But I can see he layout of the place in my mind, and can even taste the coffee I was drinking that morning, from the […]

Much ado, from Toby Harnden,Telegraph(UK): The surf may have told a story but so too did the sight behind the reporter of people chatting and ambling along the sea front and just goofing around. There was a man in a t-shirt, a woman waving her arms and then walking backwards. Then someone on a bicycle […]
