Every Silver Lining Has A Cloud

Despite occasional bursts of almost optimism I’m mostly fairly pessimistic. When I’m down I’m a flat out nihilist. So to indulge my dark side and make myself feel better lets spread some doom and gloom.

President McCain, scary isn’t it? Obama doesn’t have that big a lead and Palin is going to bring out the Republican base in droves. Given the geographic distribution of the Republican base and the concentration of the Democratic base in the northeast and the Pacific coast and the electoral collage system McCain could lose the popular vote and still easily win the electoral vote. A couple of Supreme Court appointments and any one who isn’t a straight white Christian male is totally screwed. Given the uneasy situation in the Ukraine we could very well have McCain with his hair trigger temper trying to face down the Russians. Any one want to play total nuclear war?

Ah well really Natasha, why so serious?

Lets put a smile on that face.

So a Jewish guy walks into a bar with a parrot on his shoulder. The bartender says, "Hey, where'd you get that?" The parrot says, "New York. There's a TON of 'em there!"

Does that help?
