Bored and bummed:

Light blogging is expected this week. We can't say why, but we are disinterested in the news lately. Is it:
  • Unhappiness with the Burkett/memo story?

  • The horrible poll numbers?

  • Post Swift Boat burnout?

  • A sense that things are falling apart politically? (Kerry seemingly adrift. Edwards hidden away in the Witness Protection Program. Right-wing triumphalism.)
Maybe we need a week to recharge our batteries. Maybe the debates will be stimulating. Who knows?

Right now we are focusing on the Detroit Lions football team. We liked them last year (as a team rebuilding) and they have won two games in a row so far. It's all we care about these days.


The Bush campaign has attracted a lot of dough but on Iraq and other Bush Administration disasters, the buck doesn't stop where the doe (dough) is. So who's getting the screwing?

Move over Cheney:

House Speaker Dennis Hastert said al Qaeda wants John Kerry to win the election.

Who knew?

It isn't that bad -- the polls are evening up and Kerry is on the offensive.

I don't want to get a reputation as a nitpicker, nor undermine your excellent work, but you mean "uninterested", not "disinterested". "Disinterested" means "impartial, without any financial or other stake".

To borrow a line from Big Lebowski, "that's just the stress talking, man!"
