Hearing how Russian hackers have interfered in the US election and “embarrassed” our country. Really? Is there some low of embarrassment we’ve already failed to achieve on our own? Are there new depths yet to be explored that have eluded my imagination? I’m actually thinking Russian hackers may be a vast improvement over what we have done to our own selves. I’m rather encouraged that our Russian super villains didn’t just politely cover their eyes and look away. Perhaps they can help us recover our lost dignity.
Hack that. Somebody hack America’s dignity and give it back to us.
2. Reading in no less than 14 newspapers about the top secret, covert, clandestine plan the US has to launch cyber war against Russia in retaliation. I hate to be pedantic here, but we should now probably revisit the definition of those words “covert” and “clandestine.”
So, covert means, “not openly acknowledged or displayed.”
Clandestine means “kept secret or done secretively, especially because illicit.”
When you start taking out full length ads in the newspapers you kind of mess up that whole top secret clandestine vibe that makes these things so much fun. James Bond is just kind of sad and pathetic with his cover blown like that, his orders reduced to public approval ratings and polls numbers. I mean, I wouldn’t even shake a martini for this guy.
3. Watching the religous right comit hari kari and fall on their own petard over and over again. I don’t particularly enjoy exploding heads, even more appaling when the people’s whose heads are exploding don’t even realize it. So wisdom, she is female and female wisdom would suggest that the timing of your sudden teachings on female virtue and Proverbs 31 is sorely misplaced.
“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, So that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil All the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, And worketh willingly with her hands…..”
Yes, yes indeed, but unfortunately our virtuous woman has now been forced to rise before dawn to try to figure out how her wisdom somehow got reduced to nothing more than her lady bits, a concept that is apparently not only acceptable but actually championed in some quarters….
And one by one, as she sits quietly on the sidelines watching, she hears even the ones she used to respect say…. don’t be the kind of woman that godly fathers and mothers are warning their sons about.
As Pastor Wilson so eloquently put it, “we’re still religious and we’re still right” and while this may well be true, the religous right seems to have food spilled down the front of their shirt and snot coming out of their nose.
I would not shake you a martini, either.
