What Was I Thinking?

I'm going to blame yesterday's post on the effects of all those cleaning fumes for the Broker's Open Thur morning. Only one broker showed up. I hope the public Open House Sun afternoon has better attendance. Token and I spent a lovely afternoon in Pebble Beach with our friend who runs a museum down there. A leisurely lunch at a fancy smancy sidewalk cafe with Token behaving like a gentlemen, sitting next to my chair without having to be told to use his company manners.

This video is based on the song What Was I Thinking by Christine Lavin and was made by the performers for an English class.

UPDATE (0145 am): Double crap - I forgot to link to Keith Olbermann's Special Comment. It's up at C&L and they also have a transcript of his comments. Let me include just a little teaser of what this news anchor said tonight:

Does this endless presidency of loopholes and fine print extend even here?

If you believe in the seamless mutuality of government and big business — come out and say it!

There is a dictionary definition, one word that describes that toxic blend.

You’re a fascist — get them to print you a t-shirt with “fascist” on it!

What else is this but fascism?


I am not talking about ethics here.

I am talking about blame.

If the President seems to be throwing the baby out with the bathwater, it means we can safely conclude… there is no baby.

Because if there were, sir, now that you have vetoed an extension of this eavesdropping, if some terrorist attack were to follow…

You would not merely be guilty of siding with the terrorists…

You would not merely be guilty of prioritizing the telecoms over the people…

You would not merely be guilty of stupidity…

You would not merely be guilty of treason, sir…

You would be personally, and eternally, responsible.

And if there is one thing we know about you, Mr. Bush, one thing that you have proved time and time again… it is that you are never responsible.

Read the transcipt and watch the video.
