okay, really, this has become disturbing

I didn't think anything could preempt in my heart the one hundred cases! of hotdog flu that were announced, but lo.

Specter Bats For the Other Team! which is a euphemistically filthy way of speaking of a Republican converting to the Democrats.

...okay, granted, this is not technically on the Apocalypse To Do List. I'm just saying, maybe it should have been.

Anyone seen any--say, rapturing? Just run and check around your offices, please. Just to make sure. I'll wait.

You know, the possibility of a retroactive revision of the Apocalypse To Do List would never have occurred to me, but you're clearly right that it may be called for.

Flu, earthquake, Specter. I mean, what else could it be?

Steele said in a written statement. "Let's be honest --Sen. Specter didn't leave the GOP based on principles of any kind. He left to further his personal political interests because he knew that he was going to lose a Republican primary due to his left-wing voting record."

Which voting record was a sign of...him...voting on principle? Rather than with his party? Or am I missing something here? Is is just that "left-wing" automatically precludes "principles"?

I wonder if he re-read his own statement for logic. *rather blank as well*

Does regular alien abduction count as a mini-rapture?

We'd need a good philosophy major for that one. *grins*

I just got online and my mind BOGGLED when I read that on my home page! Plagues of locusts may be next.

*nods solemnly* I'm waiting for locusts.

Wow, Republicans, sore losers much?

No raptures in Western MA. Just very hot and draggy Yankees. I'm pretty sure they think they are in hell.

*snickers* It's very humid here as well. Eww.

My state has several cases of the flu.... take from it what you will.

Arlen Specter changed sides. :O Wow. I guess he was Republican in name only. Of course we have some Democrats in name only, too, Liebermann from Connecticut comes to mind so it all balances out in the wash.

Heh. Point on that one.

Does this mean the Senate now has a supermajority?


"I know I'm disappointing many of my colleagues," he said at a news conference. "The disappointment runs in both directions.
I can't help but go :D :D :D over that. *terrible person*


Oh wait. It's a paper cut.

Never mind.

::sends you a papertowel with some dodgy shadows in the pattern the Shroud of Turn to mop that up::

Uh, not unless we've all been left behind.

And really, what with all the gay porn, we probably should have seen that coming.

And really, what with all the gay porn, we probably should have seen that coming.

::spit take:: Oh my. Oh my, I needed that laugh. Thank you.

YUP. Offices deserted.
Oh, wait. There's a teleconference in the conference room. Do I burst in to make sure all are accounted for, or wait patiently to see if I'm the only one left? *clutches pearls*

Oh help me ceiling cat, help me.

OMG, Specter?! That's just wild. At first I thought you were joking. Wow.

Nope, no rapturing here, unless you count that guy on the sidewalk in front of our office building, but I think he's on something chemical, not something religious.

Hope that helps to calm your fears, at least a little bit...

This is how I know I'm not awake. I read that as 'Specter Bats' for the Other Team. Making pause and blink at the screen while wondering what in hell were specter bats.


Oh Arlen, dear Arlen. I grew up with Arlen on the local Philly news station. I never liked him until he became middle of the road in comparison to some of his party colleagues. And today...I LOVE ARLEN WELCOME TO THE GANG. No more filibusters. Now, if the Demos can just get something done without tripping over their own butts trying to bite each other's ankles...I will be seeing Jesus.
