You Are the Wind Beneath My Wings

I have no idea what Mistermix is talking about– I have nothing but respect for each and everyone of you and recognize you for the unique souls that you are, each one of you an individual snowflake sparkling in the December morning sun. You are the green shoots pushing through tough March dirt who need to be nurtured and adored. I’m not so sure why Mistermix hates you all so much, but all I have to say is I love you.

    Mistermix does seem to have some social interaction issues. Truthfully, I thought it was me but now I see it’s bigger than that. All we can do is love him as hard as we can and thereby show him how to love. It’s the only thing that works.

    Cole seems too happy. Is it possible to get high from mustard?

    OT – That was some speech Obama just gave in Israel. I don’t think it will make a damn bit of difference since no one in that region seems committed to giving anything up for peace. The Israeli/Arab media seems impressed with it and the US media is blaming Obama because there is no peace yet. So, doesn’t look like much has changed.

    Just Some Fuckhead says:

    @srv: No, I think less responsibility would be more appropriate here. Maybe John could bring a new blogger onboard to take over some of Mistermix’s duties, perhaps another black urban professional that could speak to the hearts and minds of a blog audience that is largely elderly white shut-ins with four or more animals living vicariously through a a near-recluse hillbilly in West Virginia.

    That pretty much nails it except for noting that we’re all reading and commenting while we’re at work.

    Speaking of cats and dogs sleeping together,

    In a rare attack on a fellow conservative, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly tonight criticized Rep. Michele Bachmann for “playing small ball” in her recent attack on the perks President Barack Obama enjoys in the White House.

    “Now, this would be much ado about nothing, if not for the fact that trivial attacks on President Obama are obscuring serious problems in this country,” O’Reilly continued. “Does the president live well in the White House? Yes, he does. Is there money wasted there? You bet there is. But every other president in history has lived in comfort, and it looks like President Bush the younger had a bigger White House budget than Barack Obama does.”

    http://www.politico.com/blogs/.....59895.html

    Yeah, I know, Politico, and anyway, it allows O’Reilly to claim for the next…ever that why yes, he DOES call out Republicans, so there!

    That was almost exactly what I thought of when I read the post – except it made me think of flying unicorns (a pegasus with a spike) with fart-assisted takeoff.

    PBTHHHH SPUTTTT PBTHHHH … ZOOM! Taste the rainbow!

    Which makes me think that could be Cole’s coat of arms: a flying, farting unicorn carrying pants & mustard.
