It’s on!

sarahpacbwSarah Palin launched her PAC this week. Whether she’ll really run in 2012, I don’t know, but I think it would be swell if Sarah’s new PAC grievously outraised McCain’s new PAC. Don’t you?

Oh, and for those who think I support Sarah Palin because she’s an ordinary girl just like me, may I say a couple of words?

Fuck you.

If the word “ordinary” stings you like the lash, you’ve got issues. I knew kids like you in art school who made up these awful broken homes because their happy, stable middle class real families seemed too darned ordinary to produce sooper geniuses.

That’s right, Normo McBoringloser — I’m rubber and you’re glue.

Anyhow, business-runnin’, moose-huntin’, rootin’ tootin’ Mayor-Governor-Moms like Sarah are hardly ordinary. Sure, her accent says, “golly, this sure is some tasty Frito pie” but her resumé says, “get out of my way or I’ll kick your fat balls up around your eye sockets, Sonny.”

Here’s the deal: I think I recognize Sarah Palin. I think I’ve run across her kind before. If I’m right, she’s the sort of person who can take on a big, tangled mess and make it right, by way of a sort of native perceptiveness, grim determination and ginding, relentless, inexhaustible good cheer.

Am I right about that? I don’t know.

Are those qualities even good to have in high office? I don’t know that, either. I’m not positive I’ve ever seen it in government before. But it’s bound to be an improvement over the string of useless weirdos we have been running, isn’t it?

Clickable colorization! Is there anything you can’t do? Are you developing a British accent yet. That would seal the deal for sure. Americans (especially Eskimos) love British accents.

Hey, I just read a book by Jonathon Kellerman, he of the serial killer drama genre. Link, pfft, I’m lazy.

Anywho one of the victims was a grad from the Rhode Island School of Design… The first suspect also an alumni. Hmmmm.

Hey, don’t look at me!

Although my first blog idea was True Crime, on account of I lumme a grizzly murder. When the time came, I couldn’t bear to be parted with my collection of crappy TC paperbacks and I packed up the lot and moved them across the pond.

There was a ghoul in Lovecraft who was a RISD student, too, IIRC.

“embiggen” > “enlargen.”

And bless you for calling out those poor, delicate tormented souls from the mean streets of suburbia. For one brief, shameful period in my childhood I felt a stab of shame at coming from such a home; a home which not only wasn’t broken, but would in fact have driven Ward and June Cleaver to seek immediate counseling, that they might discover where they’d gone so horribly wrong.

I got over it.

Every presidential campaign we donated to now has its PAC hand out — Fred, Mitt, McCain — but this is the one I think we’ll be supporting. At least it’ll give us something to cling to, bitterly, as we endure the next couple of years.

Your wardrobe adjustments are perfection! And I love Sarah’s graphic of Alaska superimposed on the Lower 48 — “I’m sorry, did someone ask about the breadth of my experience?” Heh.

Frito pie?

FRITO PIE!

Recipe please…

 


Comment from apotheosis

1 Large bag Fritos.
1 (or 2, whatever) cans Hormel Chili. With beans.
1 bag shredded cheese.

Combine first two ingredients in a medium baking dish. Toss lightly until thoroughly and evenly coated. (The Fritos, I mean.) Spread evenly in dish and cover with cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees until done. I don’t know what defines “done” with Frito pie, as it’s all precooked. It’s sorta crusty on the top and warmed all the way through and makes an impossible-to-remove film on the pan.

Serve warm.

It’s comfort food, with a capital “blorp.”

Also, I learned on Survivorman that Fritos are awesome kindling. So if you’re ever stranded in the arctic wilderness with nothing but tupperware containers of leftovers, this recipe might just save your life.

If I might be so bold as to suggest reading, Miss Wzl: David Thompson turns a jaundiced eye toward pretentious artspeak jackassery, e.g.:

‘The shuffling and unfolding of the information of her body in sensory space is enacted across a gap or trajectory of subjecthood that is multiple and present. Subjectivity is the lens and connector through which the spatio-temporal dislocation gets focused and bridged. The gap is outside vision – felt not seen – and always existing on the threshold in between nodes. Like the monster’s subjectivities, all knots in the matrix are linked.’

Also, if Frito Pie makes you lick your chops, consider:

Regarding the artspeak… That is hands-down the biggest steaming pile of bullshit I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading and slogging through.

… across a gap or trajectory of subjecthood that is multiple and present. Subjectivity is the lens and connector through which the spatio-temporal dislocation gets focused and bridged…

Yahoo, scubafreak!

Taking out the trash should never take that long though. Ridiculous that a bunch of state officials didn’t just throw a blanket over his head as he left the building and pound the stuffing right out of him.

In Illinois the frying pan of history is pretty nasty and I doubt it has ever been scrubbed really clean.

Nup. The geek’s name was Henry Wilcox, and his fever-induced dreams of vast, Cyclopean ruins of non-Euclidean geometricitousness served to introduce the concept of R’lyeh bloorping up from the floor of the Pacific in “The Call of Cthulhu.”

Other than being subject to fever-induced dreams of vast, Cyclopean yadda-yadda, Hank was, by contemporary accounts, somewhat normal…

CANNED chili???? Dude, I don’t THINK so. I live in New Mexico, so I oughta know.

Make homemade chili w/beans (pintos, cooked from dry, not that canned crap, and not red kidney beans either). Pour chili over Fritos (not some other tortilla chips, has to be Fritos). Top with your choice of: shredded cheese, lettuce, chopped tomatoes, onions, sour cream. I personally hate sour cream and it’s not part of the recipe but a lot of people I know like it.

PS Thanks for the political post, Weasel. And here I go commenting with a recipe.

Bleh, you lost me here. I hate beans. Chili is not Chili to me if it has beans in it, that’s Chili Beans. Two completely different condiments.

And adding beans to Frito Pie/whatever Chili is just uugggghhh. 😐

This must be a Texas thing, because growing up there whenever I ordered “Chili” it NEVER had beans in it, if you wanted that you ordered “Chili Beans”. But once I left Texas and went to AZ, all “Chili” has beans in it unless you specify otherwise.

 


Comment from Brigette Russell

Here in New Mexico we call chili “Texas chili” because chili (more properly chile) is something else altogether. Being a Californian originally, I still just call it chili. And by all means, feel free to make it without beans. Whatever floats your boat. But homemade is better than canned, either way, and not all that hard.

We’re discussing MAN FOOD.

Now, if you wanna make chili you be my guest. There’s nothing on earth wrong with a noble bowl of red. But such a bowl of chili is a meal to be appreciated in and of itself, not something to pour over a bag of corn chips and bake.

Frito chili pie is meant to be quick, cheap, easy, and trashy. Making actual homemade chili just to turn it into a Frito pie is like a Jag parked outside a double-wide trailer.

Sarah Palin’s type has been seen in government dozens of times. She’s a ‘there are always simple answers to complicated questions and I know what they are and you don’t’ type. She’s also woefully ignorant, and not at all ashamed of it.

If you’re looking for an example of the type, look no further than Arnold ‘Oops I Fucked Up California Worse Than Davis Ever Imagined’ Schwartzengroper. Reagan was a similar type, but he wasn’t actually actively proud of his ignorance, and actually worked to remedy it when he ran across it.

I just donated to the SarahPAC. Thanks to SWeasel for the tipoff. Read it a week ago and just now as I’m catching up I think she has a good chance. I have to admit my donation is at least partially aimed at snark for the big Zero I give Juan McShamnesty and the sorry sops that got him the nomination and thus lost us the election (see ‘Bama Pachyderm and the type, worthless ….tards) Note on that blog they don’t say anything now.
With name recognition, Sara would have a strong start especially what Carter err Obama is about to do to the economy, but the American people are notoriously blind, deaf and dumb about economics, so ne’er can tell. She may not even run. Here’s to hopin.

If anyone here reads “The Innocent Bystanders,” they would know I now have very strong opinions when it comes to politics and economics.

The idiots today are the Keynesian opportunists who are try to put out the fire by throwing in gas. And their miracle-working plans won’t even kick in until after the system rectifies itself, at which point they will swoop in to take the credit and swat any hand that threatens their pet projects which are now a waste of money.

Politicians applying corect economics to get correct principles are what saved us. Volcker (whom Carter mistakenly appointed) comes to mind. And I need not remind you that Reagan and Thatcher saved America and Britain, respectively, from the clutches of decades of Keynesian-originating destruction.
