Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Many’s The Day I’ve Traveled, 100 Miles Or More

But such an inept game of political chicken I’ve never seen before.

But such an inept game of political chicken I’ve never seen before.


Let’s do a quick rundown of the state of things.
The economy, even by the cooked and not-terribly-relevant GDP metric, has contracted considerably in the first quarter, with befuddled pundits stumbling over themselves to assure any who’d listen that everything’s gonna be alright Because Summer; Our Simple Affirmative Action President and those who serve at his pleasure seem to be daring Congress to draft articles of impeachment, with news that relevant and material correspondence at the EPA cannot be turned over Because Hard Drive Crash; Iraq is falling apart due to the aggressive assaults of guys that Our Simple Affirmative Action President wanted to go to war to protect in Syria barely 1 year ago; self-professed economic experts can’t figure out exactly what kind of doom lies in wait just around the bend, but they’re pretty sure whatever it is will End Us; we’re barely halfway through this Godforsaken World Cup thing.
Not even a week in, and I can say with all confidence that the Summer of Suck be upon us.
Which means the Fall should be truly epic, dare I say one for the history books, so take good notes. The easier you make the job of future historians, the better they’ll make you look.

    I love stopping in for a little cheer. Oh, I don’t mock, I don’t doubt, and I’m not nihilistic. It’s… some other reason(s). Can’t always identify, and even if so, won’t always mention. Popcorn, stock up, all I am suggesting. Laugh, cry, whatever, get your popcorn.

    One thing, I think, is that the choices have become very slim. There are two choices, really. Neither of them are appetizing, but, finally, for good or ill, it has come down to two choices. Perhaps that is a large part of it. Most aren’t on the right side. That isn’t required for the right side to win. Actually, that’s the way it has always been. It’s just that usually the two sides are in detente. That is over.

    the Summer of Suck be upon us…

    That sounds like a biblical curse, or maybe just a curse of biblical proportions. I have a cat, just a kitten, really, with an unknown brain disorder that causes him to stumble around. Three steps and fall over. Struggle heroically back to his feet, Faceplant. We’ve taken to calling him Captain Morgan, and he’ll be an entertainment as long as he lives, which might be long or not. No guarantees for barn cats.

    Still helpless as he is, he seems to have moved into the doghouse with my lazy Irish setter. Dog and cats, living together. The Summer of Suck be upon us.
