The Senate, in their wisdom (pop quiz to prevent literal mindedness: is this irony or oxymoron?), have failed to vote to move forward with debate on a bill ending DADT.
Go read about it at the Washington Post. I don’t want to spend any more teeth-grinding time on this. I will spend my time more productively: get blind drunk and curse partisan Congressional game-playing. And low IQ levels. And poor education. And the combination thereof that makes this idiocy possible.
In my opinion, this country is moving backwards via Cardiff. (There again, many countries often do.) Today, I am disgusted. I was disgusted yesterday, too, about the whole tax thing. But at least that doesn’t pick on my tribe. Oh, wait, yes it does–my tribe being people who don’t earn much.
As I type this, I feel temporarily tired and sick at heart.
No doubt tomorrow will be a better day for all of us. Or most of us. Or at least some of us. So, hey, if you have something cheerful to say, I’d love to hear it. Please give us all something to smile about.

I don't really have anything cheerful to say myself, so maybe I should say nothing at all. But I say fuck it and Fuck Them too. They are a bunch of colossal idiots, and I can't say I'm surprised. Just a bunch of stupid maneuvering. Same old story.
This policy will end, it will just take longer. The courts will end it.
Don't let the bastards get you down. :)
Tribalism aside, it is STUPID. That is the worst– at least the tax cuts are criminal but the corruption & graft benefits SOMEONE. This is just bigotry.
I just got an email from Barbara Boxer (yes we correspond :) ), and here's a little factoid she gave me, “At a time when our nation is confronting record deficits, American taxpayers have been forced to pay up to a half a billion dollars to replace the 13,000 service men and women discharged under this policy.”
See what I mean? Idiots.
Half a billion. How many homeless could that feed and house?
How about some mindless distractions? If you're going to use alcohol, television isn't any worse. This week's episode of Glee was rather enjoyable. Also, I've stopped reading the news. It's better that way. And finally, we will win. It's just going to take time.
I drank a cheap bottle of Pinot Grigio and watched an ep of PIllars of the Earth, which turned out to be just the ticket.
My voice came back after a week of no-show. This means I can sing with my choir this weekend. We are Arizona Women in Tune (yep, most of us are gay – http://www.azwit.com), and I will, fingers crossed, be able to do my mini-solo for a quirky and happy Hannukah song entitled “Ocho Kandelikas”. I wish I could sing for you all and tune out some of the nonsense.
Karina, cool. And speaking of the holidays, I have a lovely video to share later today: cheerful 'r' us!
