wombat

Close but no cigar

Went to Rocklands last night to see how their BBQ was, and I have to say I came home with mixed feelings. The place is basically a lunch-counter operation with some tables and a decent sound system playing classic rock, which is a nice change from "traditional" chains like Red Hot & Blue and King Street Blues that assault one's ears with the blues.

Yeah, I was going to say that...

A couple of days ago I wrote a long post about how the GOP is mainly an alliance of people pissed off at the Democrats, rather than a party with a positive program. We want to cut taxes, reduce the regulatory burden, get the ATF out of our gun shows, have Barney Frank and Chris Dodd impaled - oh wait, I guess we are positive about something. Besides the military. Anyway, I was also going to address the question of why so much of the base is pissed off at Crazy Uncle John, to the point where they come out to McCain/Palin rallies and give the old guy a hard time because he isn't getting up in The One's grill and playing smash-mouth offense the way he has against so many of his nominal comrades-in-arms within the party.

UPDATE & BUMP: Tacitus tees off on Peggy Noonan and Kathleen Parker's columns from today. I don't have the heart to read Ms. Noonan's column; time was she made me feel kinda funny in the pants, but now she just makes me sad. Goodbye, Peggy; we hardly knew ye. (Ace)
