Ever attended a Passover seder with a fever? I learned how much that sucks on Friday. I couldn’t even eat the potatoes I made.
President Obama focuses his re-election efforts on working women. I find it incredibly depressing that working women are a demographic of their own in 2012.
Despite the above, Obama says women are not an “interest group.” Can we have that in writing for all the women-oriented interest groups who keep donating to Democrats?
Last month’s job report: Weaker than the one before it. Given that we’ve been paying such a close eye on these reports for four years now, I can’t take monthly figures as major indicators anymore. Quarterly, maybe.
Numbers over the next quarter might improve with the signing of a new bill that would help small businesses raise capital. Or they might sink because some investors are stupid. Or something.
Even Republican superdelegates have entered the “Shut up and vote for Romney” camp. I can’t disagree, but I do want to go on record and say that superdelegates have as much value to the electoral process as super PACs.
The General Services Administration comes under fire for spending thousands on gifts for employees over four years. You might have seen the video, which appears to be a middle finger to existing oversight of this agency. They’re not wrong!
Another moderate Republican, Rep. Tim Johnson (R-IL), retires. I’d like to blame partisanship in Congress for this, but I think he’s actually serious about the “spending more time with the family” thing. Stunning.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Rep. John Larson (D-CT) call for a review of the NCAA after UConn’s basketball team is shut out of next year’s March Madness for low grades. Dumb rule? Kind of, because of the timing. Worth their attention? NO!
Canadian Opposition Leader Thomas Mulcair says if Quebec wants to secede from Canada, a 50-percent-plus-one majority should suffice, despite the law demanding more. Can the rest of us vote on letting these assholes secede? I bet you’d get way more than 50 percent plus one.
An Iranian parliamentarian says the country can produce nuclear weapons, but won’t. And the rest of the world shrugged and said, “Oh, OK. Carry on.” No, it didn’t. Idiot.
Bosnia marks the 20th anniversary of the siege of Sarajevo. Yesterday I discovered that two friends of mine who are Bosnian and unrelated were born 11 miles apart. That’s the only commentary I have to offer here.
