Clearly, I need to stop listening to Rachel Maddow. But I just find her show so on target. Not that I need any more fuel for the riling while riding the MTA in the morning, but it’s just so damn good.
Today, I discovered that the White House has chosen their 2005 Christmas theme song. The song is called “All Things Bright and Beautiful”. I like the way it begins. But the second stanza is my favorite part.
- All things bright and beautiful,
- All creatures great and small,
- All things wise and wonderful:
- The Lord God made them all.
- The rich man in his castle,
- The poor man at his gate,
- He made them, high or lowly,
- And ordered their estate.

Keepin’ it real for the holidays. Keepin’ it Republican.
Side Note: How do we feel about the fact that Brownie, you know, the same guy who did so well heading FEMA started a Disaster Planning Firm? We’re in good hands, America.
Randy “Duke” Cunningham, a congressman from California, faces up to 10 years of jail time for accepting 2.5 million dollars in bribes from numerous people/corporations. I understand he made very bad choices and should face any consequences he has coming to him.
My question is this: why aren’t they going after the people doing the bribing? A military contractor was granted 250 million dollars after Duke took a 200 thousand dollar bribe from them. Has that same military contractor faced any consequences? There is something very wrong with this picture. I want answers. Our government looks more and more like the mob every day.
