Blue Mice and Pink Elephants

As Keith Olbermann keeps reminding us, "That woman is an idiot!"

Hat tip:  Crooks and Liars

Doesn't she have any competent handlers?  Palin has no idea what her own words mean.......

Wiki has an "pink elephant" entry and this quote from author Jack London about one kind of alcoholic:

"the man whom we all know, stupid, unimaginative, whose brain is bitten numbly by numb maggots; who walks generously with wide-spread, tentative legs, falls frequently in the gutter, and who sees, in the extremity of his ecstasy, blue mice and pink elephants. He is the type that gives rise to the jokes in the funny papers."

Photo of the Day

We walked to Wal*Mart this morning.  On the way, we passed a house where overgrown agave plants were uprooted to make way for a new landscaping scheme.  We counted at least a half dozen of the humongous "pineapples" being discarded.  Tequila is made from the mashed core of the agave's pineapple.

Another beautiful day in paradise......(and, another year older)......

Miller Votes NO!

The Republican message to Michiganders:  Get a job.

Republican Representative Candice Miller of Michigan's 10th Congressional District, where unemployment is in the double digits, voted "NO" on the House Bill to extend unemployment benefits.

Miller and Representative Dave Camp (R-MI) were the only folks in the ENTIRE Michigan Delegation to vote against extending unemployment benefits.  Republican Pete Hoekstra missed the vote because he was busing campaigning to be Michigan's next Republican Governor.  I guess we know what his legislative priorities are?
