Yesterday I whined about struggling to come up with a post which means it was one of the seven days of the week. Humbly and meekly, avec un petit aide musical, I asked for assistance from all you lovely humans and biomechanical constructs -- some of you are too fucking odd to be flesh and blood, I'm certainly convinced of that -- and got it in spades, clubs, hearts and diamonds. There were many fine ideas, but for the first one, I'm going with something that Lisa suggested:
Contrast the way Blago's alleged criminal activity and ethics violations have been handled by the Illinois state legislature and Sarah Palin's ethics violations investigation was handled (or not, as it were regarding criminal investigations by the weak Fed).For an essay of this much import to our great democratic process, I believe we can do one thing, and one thing only: go to the principals themselves, and let them make the case for their innocence in their own words, let them shed light on the dark, dark shadow these witch hunts have cast over the Lord's good earth. God Bless America.

"I'm not giving the motherf---ing state legislature the f---ing time of day.
"Now, gosh darnit Rod, you shouldn't use that doggone language!"
"Dude, she wants me! I'm like Dustin Hoffman only with better hair!"
