Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse.
Tonight, I raise my glass high to another resignation within the Bush Administration: mucho mas, por favor!

As a rule, having the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development resign in the midst of a national mortgage crisis seems like an unwelcome development. But in the case of Alphonso Jackson, who resigned this morning in the midst of multiple scandals and a criminal investigation, the Bush administration is probably better off with a vacancy.

This guy was muy malo. Which, come to think of it, describes pretty much everyone else running the show in Washington right now, so he’s hardly unique. Carpetbagger has a gorgeous list of this – ah – gentleman’s particular faults. I encourage you to go have a look.

Speaking of bad sorts, let’s have a look at what Senator “My lips are attached to McCain’s backside” Lieberman’s been up to these days:

Lieberman added that McCain is “a reformer, somebody who understands ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country and remembers the other part of the Kennedy inaugural, which said that we will bear any burden, pay any price to assure the survival and sustenance of liberty. That’s John McCain.”

Is he talking about the same John McCain I had the extreme displeasure to be represented by? Because that doesn’t sound like my John. My John McCain was a total – argh, these restrictions on cursing are killing me – he’s totally not like that at all.

Senator Lieberman, whatever you’re taking, you should stop now. The sky is not pink, the Republicans are not good, and McCain nothing at all like Kennedy. Step away from the alternate universe now, please.

I need twelve more shots after this. I cannot have them, as I’m still at work. But happily, there is something on Pharyngula today that gives me the warm fuzzies without the buzzies:

That is just the greatest billboard ever.
