not much of a weekend ahead

It's the end of 2007, so us accountants are all jumping through our asses trying to get invoices into the system for payment, close out old contracts, and fix things that are screwed up before the books are closed on 2007. Since our main payment software has been flaky all week as the Beltsville folks move into new quarters and Verizon seizes the opportunity to screw us once again, this means we get to work tomorrow. :( Whether it's fifteen minutes or four hours remains to be seen; AC (the aforementioned software) may not even be up tomorrow.

You'd think after eightsixteen years our Democrat friends would have gotten tired of the "hurr, W is a stoopid moron, ha ha ha!" meme, but evidently it salves their pride on some level. Or something. Me, I wouldn't be so eager to advertise that I'd gotten my ass consistently kicked by an alleged simpleton, but I'm just an old Falangist and clearly don't understand kids these days. *shrug*

So, I think I'll load my dishes into the dishwasher and call it a night, but first, a Cobb comic for your entertainment:

I think the liberal objection to Bush, at least among the more intelligent liberals out there, is not so much his actual intelligence but the way he presents himself -- he's basically a prep-school boy from Connecticut, but he talks and to some extent acts like a lower-middle-class rural Texan. If I were inclined to see class warfare in everything, I'd say there's probably a sense of betrayal there; since I'm not, however, I'll just say that most liberals don't have very much love for that particular segment of the population. Probably even less for those who weren't born into it but like it anyway.

This doesn't fit well into a punchline, though, so it degenerates into "Bush is a moron" in communication. And to be honest he doesn't strike me as a particularly deep thinker, just a man with good political instincts and a gift for being a one-man wedge issue.

I think you're probably right. They can't understand why a rich kid from Connecticut wants to hang out with the rednecks. Too bad for them; the whole meme makes them look like a bunch of snarky posers.
