The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

TAUTOLOGY RUN RAMPANT: Americans are stupid. I know this because Bill Maher tells me so and if Bill Maher tells me so then it must be true. Why are Americans stupid? I don’t know, but Bill Maher is a wealthy man and reached this happy state by telling Americans how stupid they were and if Americans are willing to pay Bill Maher good money for telling them how stupid they are, then Americans really must be stupid, as otherwise all those stupid Americans would be ignoring Bill Maher entirely and he would have to do something else for a living, like peddling hot dogs on the streets of New York or selling life insurance to jihadis and their families.

UPDATE: Something new tomorrow, folks, I promise.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: All right, I lied. I am trying to get this thing typed and just as soon as it is, I will post it. I promise, sideways, sort of.

There will be a new post up before the end of the week, folks. My apologies, and yes, I know you're tired of my apologizing for this sort of thing, but it isn't lack of ideas or even sloth this time around; the piece is fighting me every inch of the way. I know I should just drop the thing now and move on to other things; I have a couple of good ideas in line waiting for me to write them up; but at this point it's become one of those guy things: I'm going to finish this if it kills me first. I will be back at the grindstone tonight in an effort to move this thing along. Until then, watch some television and contemplate how much better your life is going to be once the same government that cannot deliver the mail properly is delivering medical care for all and sundry.
