Saturday morning fluffery

Funny news link of the day:  Colbert’s SuperPAC, “Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow”

Excerpt:

The development of Super PAC’s began after the 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United vs. Federal Election Committee, which allows groups unaffiliated with a candidate to raise and spend unlimited amounts of money.

Colbert has been continuously mocking the decision ever since. He solicits donations and runs donors’ names along the bottom of the screen during his show.

That?  That is awesome.

All the news out of Iowa is making me want barbeque now.  Which means I only have to wait until tomorrow, since the whole state of Texas barbeques every Sunday and I’ve discovered that a reputation for making a good potato salad ensures an invite to all of them.

I like Saturday mornings.  They seem tailor-made for, after a long week, faffing off and lolling around the living room in your underwear.  I’m going to have to out some pants on eventually and get the day started, but one lazy morning a week is very nice.  I’m cooking later, and I have a bunch of copy editing to get done, but that can wait another hour while I enjoy more coffee.

Mmmm.  Coffee.

ETA: OMG, Governor Goodhair is on the boob tube.  And, y’all, if’n he ain’t laying on that fake drawwwlll thicker’n gravy on grits, sheee-yooT!

I despise that man with a fiery scorn formerly reserved for Tom Daschle.  I’m going to have to shut down the blog if – Heaven forfend – he actually wins the presidency.  Otherwise it’ll descend to incoherent keyboard smash of capslock rage.
