One more day to the deadline

Well, I managed to last about 7.5 hours at the Night Job before giving in and going home for another shot of DayQuil. I think I'll sleep okay in spite of the phenylephrine; it doesn't pack the same punch as the old pseudoephedrine. Unfortunately the Dayquil (God, I hope it's the DayQuil) is pumping up my blood sugar. One problem at a time.

Came home, opened mail, answered a bunch of surveys, and applied for some jobs with the Feds. Going to eat something, shoot up, and then get horizontal for the night. Hopefully tomorrow will be less full of sneezing, mucus, and coughing.

In the meantime, via Cobb, Andrew Klavan explains it all:

Moe Lane notes the Congressional killing of the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program, which among other things will get those miserable little poor kids out of the school President Obama's kids are attending. Can't have the po' folks getting above themselves and associating with their betters, eh, Speaker Pelosi?

Moe also notes the presence of the Virginia Tech killer in the latest Niven & Pournelle opus. (Yes, it's on my shopping list.) Then there's the exploding squirrels...

Meanwhile, Ace notes that The One has become his own plastic turkey. Kind of hard to fake those "spontaneous" photo ops when lots of folks who don't much like you are on site.

Even more amusement from this YouTube video. Best summary:
"At 1:08 he whips out his own business card, which bleeds Holy Water, destroys your enemies, and can save your life if you're ever thrown out of a jet. It is at this moment that you will fall in love...with the idea of punching him in the jimmie as hard as you can." (Ace)

Unfortunately he doesn't give this story both barrels as it deserves, but the Other McCain gives a useful roundup of links pertaining to the DHS asshattery that considers all conservative opposition to the Obamagenda as "terrorism". (You may already be on the TSA watchlist JUST FOR READING THIS LJ, BWAHAHAHA!) And so R. Stacy McCain hits the road for Alabama with this song blaring from the speakers. (You were expecting "Bohemian Rhapsody"?)
