DWI tests turned toxic
Where to start? There's a phenomenon where one event can color your perception of everything. Well today a lot of things look like they are coated in chocolate-brown oil glop. In a week that gave new incoherence to the concept of "corporate responsibility," the Supreme Court continued its demolition of the few remaining restrictions on corporations and the wealthy buying up the last scraps of the federal government they don't already own. And Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.), the "sane" wing of the GOP on climate change, did their best to make the atmosphere a larger version of the gulf.
And I HATE it when I'm dragging a file with my computer mouse to the left (the direction I like to drag things) and it runs into my keyboard and I wind up pushing my keyboard across the desk because I don't want to yield and pick up and reposition the mouse.
But mainly I'm annoyed right now about the "enthusiasm gap" between liberals and conservatives. It's probably not even real, since the media says it is, but it's annoying me, anyway. I'M enthused every day when I look down 16th street and see a White House that doesn't have a careless ideologue living in it anymore. We now have a health-care bill, probably some restraint on Wall Street soon, and some progress on climate, through the EPA if nowhere else. And at least a temporary respite from a new crop of Samuel Alito-type appointments murmuring "it's not true!" whenever hearing that money ISN'T speech or corporations AREN'T actual people. And I'm enthused about every day that President Palin hasn't moved in yet. Think about THAT for a bit, oh ye yawners.
