Thursday Thirteen Ed. #131: 13 Reasons I Don’t Have to Write a Thursday Thirteen

February 6th, 2008

THIRTEENERS!!!! I just wanted to say “hey.” Hey. How you doin’? USUAL SUSPECTS!!!! Hello, and noooooooo you are not forgotten. I am, however, forgetting about this week’s Thursday Thirteen because… why shouldn’t I?

13. Ash in Wonderland (and her boobs) wrote a freakin’ great post for me and I am still enjoying it. And her boobs. Plus, it immediately started a fight! Excellent work, Ash-girl. I kinda enjoy blog-fighting. Except the subject was serious, so I shouldn’t be being flip. They both care, that’s why it got hot for a minute. Ash, thanks for everything. Mia, thank you to you and your co-workers for the extremely hard and thankless work you do. Peace and I’m lighting candles for the kids, right now. (more…)

to get the news from poems/
yet men die miserably every day/
for lack/
of what is found there”

QOTD: on mercy

“We all have handicaps. The difference is that some of us must reveal ours, while others must conceal theirs, to be treated with mercy.”

OK, everyone else has weighed in, I guess I’d better, too. I do not like the politics so much, it makes me a little “headachey.” I alternate between hope and headache, as far as politics goes.

Then I’m cleaning the bathroom and there, staring up at me, is the Oct. ’07 Atlantic, with Bill Clinton’s shiny face on it. To the lower left of his ear there is an article promo’ed: “How To Be A Moral Investor.” And I’m thinking, that’s kinda funny. Cuz as we know, the man has the morals of an alley cat. So if he could learn how to invest in some morals I think that would be just dandy.

Everyone says no one died/when Bill lied but we know that’s bullshit. He was known to randomly, erratically, carelessly drop bombs on countries and kill who he could. And then there was the whole welfare-to-work thing, that killed people literally and spiritually.

Up top, the headline says: “Let’s Make A Deal: Bill Clinton Reinvents Charity — And Himself.” And I’m thinking, ha ha ha whoooo am I endorsing?

I do not know Mr. Obama, you know, personally. But he seems like an alright man.

Hillary? I did not appreciate it when she talked smack about my girl Tammy Wynette and was all, “I’m not one of those little stand by your man girls” and then… proceeded to be the worst kind of little “stand by your man” girls. Whereas Tammy Wynette, as far as I’m concerned, is country feminist hero.

And then there were the blowjobs. If you have a woman (or if you have a man) you give up your “random blowjobs from others” privilege. Now, if you partner, to quote the Allman Brothers (because… why not?) is off with one of your “good time buddies/they’re drinking in some cross-town bar” then, by all means, go grab a blowjob.

Really, life is too short for shenanigans like that.

Otherwise, do not pull some little tricks, then go on national television, all, “That woman,” “I did not sleep with that woman,” etc. And if you’re “and his wife,” and you get (or choose to be) set-up, then afterwards you had better say, “I had no idea and what the hell, the man is a dog and I am sorry I called you a slut — he’s the slut, you were just young and stoopid, so wise up, sister” or something. Just anything. But no, you are not allowed to say, “I’m staying with the creep and vote for me!”

Because that just confuses me.

I do not care for Hillary because she is anti-sister. (See above: bombs, no welfare checks, too many erratic blowjobs, the whole “that woman” thing.)

So Obama gets my vote because of… blowjobs. And bombs.

Ta-ta. Remember, vote early and vote often.
