New at MBC

Quick self-promotion: new post at Moonbat Central on the nature of government and its relationship to freedom. It might be useful, but there is no cake to be found anywhere.

Reverting to form

So, I was sitting around the other day and I realized that I hadn't written anything worth reading for quite awhile, and I felt faintly disgusted with myself. And then I wondered why.

As it turns out, sometimes we write for others, sometimes for ourselves, and sometimes for the sheer bloody pleasure of it. I have not been writing for my own pleasure for quite a long time, and that is sad.

The thing is, life is short enough without doing stuff that other people think we ought to do and have fun with. If we give into the Siren Song of Shuddah, we end up writing crap that no one wants to read anyway, and end up where I was...wondering where the Muse trotted off to.

Well. My Muse is an imp, a trickster, and he has a really warped sense of humor. He is not kind to people who do not deserve it, and he has a tendency to drop banana peels in the most entertaining places. He is full-tilt bozo, an inveterate moonbat, and, as it turns out, I have the most fun writing when I channel him and let him bang on my keyboard.

The Snark is back. Send the kids out of the room.

The Black Screen of Death

Isn't it supposed to be blue?

Either way, it's dead. My screen currently reads:

Windows could not start because the folliwng file is missing or corrupt:

The Latest AP Genius

Analysis: Liberals tired of health care compromise (AP)
AP - Frustrated liberals have a question for President Barack Obama and Democratic lawmakers: Isn't it time the other guys gave a little ground on health care? What's the point of a bipartisan bill, they ask, if we're making all the concessions?

Hey, here's a thought: If the Republicans don't want what you're proposing AT ALL, then giving in to some pressure from the public isn't a concession to the Republicans.

But otherwise it's a great paragraph.

I've grown to detest the Associated Press.

Yes, the news is biased, blah, blah, blah.

It's still the news and it's not all bad.

But the AP has really lost the plot. Their news alerts automatically pop up when I open Yahoo! mail. I can't avoid reading the headlines.

Bonkers, those guys. They met Bias, whispered sweet nothings to Bias, coronated Bias, had Biases children.

The latest is hilariously bad. But at least it's good journalism, right Ms. Lane?

(Sorry, couldn't make the image any bigger. The headline reads, "Obama invokes grandmother's death in health debate."

AP-Now, it's personal.)
