    Beb, me neither.

    In other news, at least Pawlenty’s out of the race. I had honestly thought he’d do better, but then again, he just doesn’t come across as reallly crazy. Even though he is.

    Ahh, fresh water boats. How their lustrous varnish gleam sparkles, unchallenged by the vicissitudes of ocean corrosives. My boatwright friend Gary used to restore and refinish classic Chris Crafts, and he had a small collection of these gems in his shop, exhibiting the full continuum from glory to utter decrepitude. He also built replicas, adding Hawaiian koa to the mahogany and spruce used in the originals. Here’s an example, now living in Tahoe:

    Fresh water boats and fresh water economics seem to share that tendency to lose their luster in the face of a challenging environment, don’t they.

    Is it raining on Nancy’s vacation? Pawlenty’s gone without ever having to explain letting the bridge fall down. That’s disappointing.

    This boat reminds me of “speedboats” in older movies set in ritzy European places. Like the Maquis Mouse (clever, Hitchcock) getaway boat for The Cat Robie in To Catch a Thief. Or the superb Venice boat chase in the modernized version of The Italian Job. Couple of seriously entertaining movies. Or the boat Mountbatten got blown up in by the IRA.There was a boat like this in the Marilyn Monroe movie Niagra, I think, also.

    I think that maybe that’s the name of Nancy and Alan’s boat, too.

    If I ever get a boat, I’m calling it Drinking Age. First lottery purchase.

    Y’all know in Ghostbusters, when the EPA dweeb shuts down the containment and lets the ghosts loose, and Bill Murray says “It’s true, your honor m the man has no dick.” Like Bachmann. Certifiably batshit.

    Matt Taibi on Michele Bachmann in Rolling Stone. Insane in the brain.

    Bachmann’s influences.

    Somewhat scarier than Atlas Shrugged.

    The claim that Pawlenty was a strong contender in 2012. He just dropped out.

    Oh, and this is a revelation about Perry and how he allowed an innocent man be put to death:

    Right. I was wondering about the date. If it was recent, it’s funnier.

    The author of that Pawlenty article also produced that bullshit about Obama’s Mau Mau upbringing and scary “anti-colonialism”. What a horse’s ass.

    Putting innocent men to death is de rigeur for Tejas governor’s. Even better, women. When it all comes down to it, Perry was all hat no cattle on the stimulus money, he’s trashed Texas public education, and he’s a loony that believes in government by beseeching the Lord for Divine intervention. Perry’s lamer than Bachmann on anti-science stupidity.

    April, I thought that anti-colonialism stuff came from Dinesh D’Souza (sp?). Not that I care much.

    It’s amazing that Pawlenty really does look as nerdy as that NR caricature made him look.
