"Sooooo sorry I haven't been around, everybody."
"Really? We hadn't noticed."
It is to laugh.
Honestly, life in my neck of the woods has gone just a little nuts and trying to stay abreast of how insane the rest of the world is going at the same time has proven overwhelming. Let's do a little rundown, shall we?
Benghazi...meh...a sideshow, really. "Just a bump in the road." Dead people always are. And really, at this point, what does it matter? It happened a long time ago. Just a big "whatever." Or more like, "Huh?...Ben who?"
The press is doing its job.
AP scandal...Okay...what?...wait - just - a - minute...
Republican are pussies...if there is any wrongdoing...could be...maybe...might...Judge Jeanine Pirro is tired of all of them.
Noam Chomsky thinks Obama's a tyrant. I am in an alternate universe, aren't I?
I'm just waiting for the streams to cross and end everything as we know it to cease to exist.
Even Jon Stewart is beginning to understand just what this country is up against.

But it's still really funny, see? So let's all laugh with supreme self-satisfaction at how smart we are even as we are forced to admit that maybe...just possibly...those idiot mouth-breathers ACTUALLY got one right. Okay...now that we've had our little laugh, what did Bush do?
In the meantime, I've got my hat....
If this keeps up we'll be hearing that David Brooks has finally come to realize that the crease in President Precious' pants just isn't what it used to be or Paul Krugman will finally admit that there really IS a point where government can spend too much money. Okay...I know that last one will never happen. I was just throwing that out there. A little joke.
Honestly, the world is making me giggly, and a little silly. The best reason of all for why so many things are going so incredibly badly for Obama and his oh-so-smart administration is David Axelrod's. Apparently the government is too big for anyone to run without massive stupidity fucking things up everywhere. No kidding.
"The government is so vast."
This really did make me laugh out loud. Not with the soul-satisfying, regenerating, therapeutic laugh of real happiness or relief, but with the crazy, cackling bursting laughter of someone who just realized that the scaffold being built for their own execution isn't going to be strong enough to hold their weight.
But not to worry. The guards will have guns. They'll get the job done one way or another. Fun times.
The extra special giggle, though, comes when you remember that the agency Axelrod complains is simply too big for anyone to be able to know what they're doing or how well or even how LEGALLY they're doing it is going to get 16,000 more employees to administer your healthcare coverage.
Did I say fun times? I meant end times.
LET THE END TIMES ROLL!
