Spring Break

Posted on | March 17, 2012 | 17 Comments

Smitty and his family have gone sight-seeing in D.C.

I am being kidnapped by my family for an outing to Antietam National Battlefield Park.

Rick Santorum is somewhere in Missouri, campaigning for votes in todays’s Republican caucuses, but we must rely on commenters to link the latest news of that and other Important Breaking News Developments. Follow me on Twitter and I’ll try to send a few messages from the so-called “real world.”

    BREAKING NEWS: Antietam was a draw.

    A distant relative, traditionally, perished there, fighting for the North.
    I guess he’s not on the official roll of the dead, but that’s what his headstone claims.

    Okay Stacy, here’s one I haven’t seen you comment about yet. Last week Obama was beating Romney and Santorum in four key swing states. This week he’s still beating Romney but Santorum leads the Big O.

    Ron Paul delivers for Mitt again!  Paulies disrupting MO caucuses and blocking delegate assignments!

     Rasmussen is arguably the best pollster out there, so it does mean something, especially involving four key swing states. But fear not, Santorum will probably declare open war on cleavage shots on Prime Time TV any day now, so this poll could be very fluid.

    Ahh yes, the old war on cleavage. That battle may never be won as long as Meghan McCain is around.

    I am holed up like Jimmy Stewart in Rear Window, staring out the living room window at this gorgeous day outside, with my heavily bandaged leg propped up on pillows.  I’ll let you know if one of my neighbors kills his wife.

    Stacy: It is the Real World.  All this michegas where the Left is in control is the Fun House.  You’ve got to get back to the Real World now and again to keep what sanity you have left [pun intended].

     That mental image, vile as it is, would almost justify such a war. But just almost.
