American Political and Cultural Miscellany -OR- Who is Going to Watch Over Me?

Yellow roses grow in the small yard of the corner house at 18th and S Streets, NW, Washington, D.C., July 9, 2009. The weather was unusually pleasant and not typical sultry, unbreathable, and D.C.-summertime shitty.

First, the vitriol and then some pleasant stuff ...

Here is the link to The WaHoPo article -- written in that maddeningly "even-handed" ... "on the one hand God said, on the other hand Satan said " ... "opinions differ on the shape of the Earth" ... horseshit way -- on why the AIG criminals need millions more in bonuses for destroying the country and are seeking U.S. Government (READ: President Obama) approval, who (I predict) will OF COURSE give it.

HERE is what I posted -- as "RegulusArcturus" -- at 3:00:40 AM in the flame-throwing comment section:

I predict three things in my 3AM post-bar visit, hateful mood right now :

1. President Obama-the-Messiah will give a REALLY good, REALLY powerful, REALLY amazing speech about "accountability" and "making America great and respected again," and then OK the bonuses because on the grounds that, "It's time for a post-partisan era in which we all work together for a common good."

2. The Fred Hiatt / WaPo Editorial Board and op-ed brothel will find some degenerate way to excuse this latest degenerate crime. Please go bankrupt, Post.

3. Americans will eat more cheeseburgers and super-sized Freedom Fries while singing Lee Greenwood "And I'm proud to be an American" song -- and thinking they're the Envy Of The Universe as their (our) empire collapses.


Basically, from an evolutionary point of view, America is literally too dumb to survive. But at least Goldman Sachs and AIG will make $$$$$$$$ off the collapse.

Two cultural tidbits ...

Lastly, ending on a happy note, here is a lovely song I heard a short while ago. It's Patti Austin's "Someone to Watch Over Me" from 1998 (or 1999) set to a lovely nighttime view of New York City.

This is the kind of song I think of when I think of see myself with a partner at a small, quiet, candle-lit cafe on a rainy, "Soft City" night.

G'night, Gentle Reader. My next planned entry (yeah, yeah, I know I said that in my entry from Tuesday) will be early next week.
