throwing good money after bad
At lunch today, I was trying to relax to my right-wing hate-machine radio programs when what should come on at commercial?

Announcer: "During the third presidential debate, Charlie Whassisface [obviously, this is paraphrased] asked: 'The health care system today is a massive gagglefuck. President Bush, whose problem [or perhaps it was fault] is that?'"

Bush: "uuuuuhhh huh huh well, huh I sure hope it's not the administration's."

Well, I called that one.

I don't understand politicians or advocacy groups buying ad time during political talk radio. The whole program is essentially, at this time of year, an unpaid ad for one candidate or another, why spend your money with a thirty second platitudinal ad? Both sides do it, and I totally fail to understand why. Newsflash: buying ad time during Rush Limbaugh's program isn't exactly going to sway many people. If there is such an animal as an undecided voter, chances are good they aren't listening to talk radio; and if they are, they allready know more than what is in your stupid little ad, so why are you wasting your money?!?

Somebody get Rove on the phone, I need to talk to that boy.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
