It's Bliss, Remember?


Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," boldly going where no silly Pagan has gone before! The Afterlife's a banquet, and some bored gods are starving to death. Light a candle and pick a pantheon, won't you? Immortality can get pretty dull without an active praise and worship team.

Speaking of praise and worship teams, no one is more surprised than I am this morning that the Huckabee menace actually won the Iowa gig. Makes one wonder if there's any Republican out there who cares about anything except unborn babies and what gay people do in their spare time. Rest assured I would not have poked fun at the guy if I thought he had a prayer of winning.

Silly me.

I now turn over the podium to Henry Louis (H.L.) Mencken, with this important public service reminder:

"No one in this world, so far as I know- and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me- has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.”

Did anyone else on the East Coast see the meteor shower this morning? I caught a couple of whoppers and wished I'd hauled out of bed earlier.

See you in church.

When the news crawl interrupted my show last night on TV, I thought of you immediately.

Please, no Ron Paul jokes. We can't afford it ;)

Did you know that only 6-7% of Iowans actually causcus? I heard it on NPR.

One of the reasons is that you have to show up - there's no absentee caucusing like there is absentee voting. And, the Iowa caucus apparently became important only back in 1976 (or there abouts) because some New York Times reporter said it's important. Heard this stuff on Charlie Rose.

You won't see me in any church other than beer church.
