An inauspicious beginning indeed: it's only mid-February and I'm having a nail removed from the second tire this year.
Though this is an improvement over the last time. Trying to get a tire fixed is trickier on New Year's Day than on a regular work day when you work nextdoor to Arrowhead Tire.
In yesterday's post, I suggested that perhaps it was inappropriate for Rep. Marsha Blackburn to defend Bush's troop surge using a turn of phrase that also happened to be a Marvel Comics marketing slogan.
Not to be outdone, Florida's Rep. Ginny Browne-Waite has shown her support for the surge by saying -- I shit you not -- "Git-r-done."
Ladies and gentlemen, your United States Congress.
