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)

Regarding the much expected October Surprise...

...I suspect that the events in Benghazi qualify as such, even if they did occur in September. Be that as it may, I am sure that the former junior senator from Illinois and his crew of out of their depth Chicago ward heelers were thoroughly surprised by what happened in Benghazi, although I can't imagine why they would be; it is in the nature of surprises to be surprising, no matter what month they occur in, and Fate is, I fear, notoriously nonpartisan in her disposition of favors. Frankly, I blame the institution of marriage for all of this bother;  if Mr. Romney had divorced his first wife then Our Leader would be spared the indignity of having to run hard for his office, rather than coast in without so much a care in the world, a scenario He seems to prefer, if past experience is any guide.
