George F. Will:
A convention’s sovereign duty is to choose a plausible nominee who has a reasonable chance to win, not to passively affirm the will of a mere plurality of voters recorded episodically in a protracted process.
Why don’t voters like the Republican establishment… perhaps we’ll never know…
Windows Day 7: Why is stuff randomly blurry
Computer Update: A computer has been obtained, and now I have to re-orient myself to the ways of Windows after using a Mac for the past ~11 years. Notepad, I’ve missed you.
My computer died the other day, so some stuff is going to take even longer now since I can’t edit html for the time being. I swear, one of these days I’ll have regularly updated websites again.
Fun Facts Gleamed From Wikipedia
From Unhappily Ever After:
By the show’s third season, Tiffany (Nikki Cox) was becoming a breakout character and the de facto co-star of the show along with Pierson. Stories began focusing on Tiffany and Ryan’s high school (and later community college) escapades, and the producers attempted to kill-off the increasingly unnecessary character of Jennie, who returned as a ghost. After doing so, however, they quickly reversed their decision because of negative audience reaction. The character was brought back to life in a deliberately bizarre sequence in which a network executive wandered on to the set and announced Jennie’s character was no longer dead. Nevertheless, Jennie was soon gone again, as several episodes later, the character abandoned her family for a lesbian lover (Hodge choosing to leave the show) and was never seen again.
Hello! Life has been busy and sorta chaotic lately so naturally Fate decided this would be a great time for my website to break down. The blogging software I was using to make posts, Movable Type, stopped working last month, and my attempt to update to the last free version failed and ended up breaking stuff even more. So, in what is becoming a tradition for this website every five years or so, I’ve been forced to change blogging software once again, this time to WordPress. Also, the backup of my posts I saved is in some weird format that apparently can’t be used by anything other than Movable Type, so I’ve had to manually add a number of posts. Once that’s done, I’ll turn my attention back to my long-neglected Simpsons news blog.
Anyway, here is a new Anthropomorphic Republican Talking Duck comic that I wanted to get out before the Iowa caucuses. Enjoy!
Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start writing!
They laughed at me when I set out to create a 17 minute parody of “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” entitled “I Like Pico De Gallo.” Well, they’re not laughing now, unfortunately.
Awful Link of the Day – ATHEIST:
ATHEIST is a small German-based startup whose main business is cobbling ugly artisan shoes that say “ICH BIN ATHEIST” on the bottom. Finally, an opportunity to loudly declare your non-beliefs to the world, if by “world” you mean an old-timey cartoon detective tracking your muddy footprints with a comically oversized magnifying glass.
