wombat

all night laundromat blues

Not really, but after a short night's sleep and a 9.5 hour day at work it sure feels like it's the middle of the damn night. Finished unsnarling the AP mess today, and again, half the problems were left over from my predecessor. Now that we've cleaned out that particular sty, I can get back to digging out my desk from under the pile of invoices, statements, deposit receipts, and what have you that's been accumulating there these past three days.

So I'm sitting here waiting for that last load of laundry to dry. No EVE for me tonight; too sleep-depped to want to risk either of my ratting ships.
Politics

Cassandra of the Left?

Camille Paglia sees what apparently nobody in the Obama campaign or NOW can - Sarah Palin is a feminist. RTWFT.

One slight mis-step, though:
The witch-trial hysteria of the past two incendiary weeks unfortunately reveals a disturbing trend in the Democratic Party, which has worsened over the past decade. Democrats are quick to attack the religiosity of Republicans, but Democratic ideology itself seems to have become a secular substitute religion. Since when did Democrats become so judgmental and intolerant?The witch-trial hysteria of the past two incendiary weeks unfortunately reveals a disturbing trend in the Democratic Party, which has worsened over the past decade.

As Ed Driscoll dryly replies, "Gosh--I don't know. Let's ask Clarence Thomas and Robert Bork if they know how far this trend goes back... " Ha Ha Only Serious, as we apahackers say.
