Bloggy Round-up

1. I've decided to vote for Democrat Chris Bell for Governor of Texas. I listened to Kinky Friedman and sort of liked him until I found out he voted for G.W. Bush, not once but twice. Anyone that goddamned stupid doesn't deserve my vote.

2. I have a new criteria for dating.
She must be Google-able and the Google results must be positive.

3. I love my new job. It's a dream come true. My boss likes me and I think I may be getting a promotion and raise soon. They give me money every two weeks and I don't have to ask them for it, unlike some of my former freelance clients.

Will you let any of us know [in private] where you're working so we can read some of your writings? :)

Glad you're enjoying your new job. My car proudly wears what is probably the only Kinky Friedman bumper sticker in Ohio. A lot of very smart, well-educated people voted for GWB and I don't fire my friends over politics.

Hooray for getting paid! I like brainless pay periods... automatic, unquestionable. (Clearly I have experienced the other kind.)

That's weak. You and Molly Ivins can both go to Odessa.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Cool. On the way up to Odessa, can we visit you out at the compound in Waco?

Love ya Karen, but come on. Kinky's opinion of dubya is entirely irrelevant. The future governor of Texas will have no more power than you or I to get us out of Iraq or Bush out of the White House.

Tex-ex, I skipped voting in the Democratic primary for the first time in my life so I could sign the petition to get Kinky on the ballot.
That was a major decision for me and it pains me to think I may have made a mistake and wasted my chance to vote for the Democrat of my choice in the primary.
If Kinky voted for Bush, I don't think he has sound enough judgment to govern my state, and I think I have earned the right to ask.
I've been mailing his campaign daily, asking for a simple answer to my question and have gotten no reply.
That to me just feels like more Republican horseshit and I've had enough of those slimy, war mongering, racist, equivocating bastards.

Well I don't have any connection with the campaign, but it seems to me the best way to get your question addressed is to ask the man himself. He's all over the place and probably stopping back in San Antonio before election day. Or make a road trip of it and see him and Lyle Lovett next Wednesday in Houston. I'm not interested in cluttering your blog any further, but I am personally saddened by your unfortunate democrat defection. Just remember: "It profits a woman nothing to forfeit her political soul for the whole world... but for Chris Bell?" With much love to Robert Bolt.

Kinky has been asked publicly whether he did in fact vote for Bush and he was reported to have been "non-responsive."
I haven't got time to chase him down and risk another non-response for my efforts.
And honey, believe me when I say I'm not defecting to the Democratic candidate. I defected to Kinky- before I realized he was most likely just another non-responsive Republican.

dusty said...

Holy shit..Kinky voted for him twice? wtf?
Glad you love your job..been thinking of you and how its going, glad I stopped by this morning :)

BigSis said...

The least Kinky could do is come up with a bogus reason why he voted for Bush..."I voted for him but when I figured out he was a lying bastard I decided to run for office myself..." or some such nonsense. No response at all is insulting.

The Educated Eclectic said...

Yes, YES, bigsis - you are so right.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Hell, "no response at all" just PROVES he's a fucking Republican.
