And I mean bowel.
Well, good afternoon, to those of you who managed to make it to the Back-up version of the Rott. Yesterday, the server crashed and can no longer run basic php — the code that runs this joint. Yesterday was a completely dead server. Today it displays a 503 page, meaning the php isn’t working. But I can ftp into the server and create an html redirection from nicedoggie dot net to nicedoggie dot blog, so I did, and here you are, you clever mutts.
The Super Bowels are running now. I have ZERO intention of watching it. We are doing a Super Bowl function this afternoon, but I was smart enough to duck out of it earlier, and decided to spend the afternoon at Alki Beach for some fish and chips.
But let’s get down to why we’re here:
Headlines That Caught My Eye This
This is how the polling breaks down:
While we are on the subject of memory. Memory is a strange thing. Your brain can easily trick itself into creating false or distorted memories. I just finished watching The Irrational , an NBC/Peacock series based on the non-fiction book, Predictably Irrational. While the series is fictional, the science is not. Pretty damn interesting, you should watch it.
I’ve mentioned this a few times over the past couple of months: Gavin Newsom is running a stealth campaign for the Democratic nomination for president. He’s been expecting Joe to see that his polling is terrible, and the public perception of his age and cognitive ability is 90 percent of the problem. If he didn’t have that perception to fight against, his approval ratings would be fairly high.
But Gavin Newsom, et al, knows there may be a time in the near future where Joe Biden might be persuaded to step out of the race due to low polls and the perception that he is too old. Newsome has been quietly building up a financial bank to run — either now or in 2028.
But more than likely, now.
It’s probably time to step down and retire.
Thoughts and Prayers.
If there wasn’t an appropriate place for a T and P, it would have to be at a mega-church shooting.
Whatever happened to the ‘small government’, freedom-loving, ‘get the government out of our lives’ Republican? If this guy doesn’t scream “Christian Taliban”, nothing does.
Have you ever noticed that those people who scream the loudest about something tend to be projectionists of their own deviant tendencies? Take, for example, the guy who puts down gay men, even to the point of violence. They almost always turn out to be gay themselves. People who want government to legislate a particular morality, tend to NEED those laws to prevent themselves from acting out in public.
Here’s another guy with his eye on Joe Biden’s fall. A former Pennsylvania Lt Governor who became a Democratic US Senator, and is making hawkish Israel noises in the face of the progressive wing of the Party. If he doesn’t try to swoop in if and when Joe stumbles, then he may try a third Party run and try to pick up as many Independents and No-Trump Republicans and the more pragmatic Democrats of the Party.
It would be nice to try and pull away from the fringes of both established parties.
Memes From the Meme Box
I receive dozens of memes in my Meme Box on a daily basis from people all over the landscape. Some are political, some topical, but most are just everyday events with a little fun inserted. My absolute favorite are just photos that will speak those thousand words clearly.
Yes, he really said that.
There is a context issue, but overall, it was a fucked up thing to say.
Not testicles, testicles have a use.
These are dingle balls.
I think that MOST people are quickly coming to the
consensus that both these guys have got to go.
Looks like they could start a bed and breakfast, right?
