Done For Now

Nothing to say, no time to say it. Will I make another comeback? Never say never, but the Magic Eight Ball says "Outlook Not So Good".

Up With Crazies!

Although batshit Republican Alan Keyes lost big in Illinois, crazy people still did pretty well in the election.

Georgia Democrat Cynthia "Crazy C" McKinney is being sent back to the House of Representatives by her constituents, apparently because having her in DC for a substantial portion of the year is preferable to having her walking the streets of Decatur all the time.

Loony Oklahoma Republican Tom Coburn, who has warned of the dangers of the rampant lesbianism in Oklahoma high schools, called for the death penalty for abortionists, and referred to Oklahoma state legislators as "crapheads", easily defeated Brad Carson. Carson was never able to shake lingering suspicion that he may be a Democrat.

And howling-mad Kentucky Republican Jim Bunning won despite widespread realization among... Kentuckyites? Kentuckers? 'Tuckies? Whatever. They knew he was nuts and re-elected him anyway. Bunning said his opponent, Dan Mongiardo, looked like one of Saddam Hussain's sons, claimed his wife was beaten up at a Mongiardo campaign event, and started traveling with a Kentucky state trooper because "there may be strangers among us".

Please join me in honoring these Insane-Americans for their achievements. Well done, one and all!

My Banner

It's not missing. It's my new minimalist look. Like it?

UPDATE: Fixed.

Acceptance Speech

As Matt notes here, we have a bet on the outcome of the Illinois Senate race. He had predicted that Obama would win by 15-20; I thought he had been hitting the crack pipe a little too hard, and that Obama would win by at least 40. So I suggested we wager lunch at a certain owl-themed restaurant. He buys if Obama wins by at least 30, I buy if the margin is less.

As of this writing, with 27% of precincts reporting, Obama leads by 65 points. I would like to thank Alan Keyes for being so completely batshit crazy. I couldn't have done it without you, Al.
