Lord Vader. We were sure Obiwan Obama would take our ship to light speed. Yet his bucket of bolts can't break out of the atmosphere and he continues to talk shit about bipartisanship, as if the Dark Side is just the other side of the farking aisle.
And then there is Lady Clinton. The Force is strong with this one. She claims she's found her voice. She may out-Oprah Princess Oprah her own self with that line. Geesh. You'd think she was Han Edward's guy with the cleft palette, for crying out loud. What was all that personal suffering stuff in THAT speech anyhow?
Lord Vader, don't get me started on why the Special K badge is off my sidebar forever.
Okay okay, you've seen that one. I've been led in a very strong Quakerly way to pull out some Buddhist texts today, not knowing where exactly they would lead me. They've led me to this post: it is time, ma hunnies, to step inside the pod for a day or two and not let monkey mind get ahold of us. (of course I'm not talking about the Simian Blogger Alliance.)
We have work to do, and as a fellow blogger chatted me up this morning, I can tell you our job has very little to do with electing the Next President of The United States, and everything to do with holding the ship of state's trajectory on an even and left-leaning course in support of the Constitution.
One thing these Buddhist books say is how easy it is to look OUTSIDE for the cause of the trouble. It is incredibly annoying that we don't have a defacto nominee, after all, NEW HAMPSHIRE has come and gone, for heaven's sake!
Don't get cocky.
