Rolling in late – Bedheaded and harrassed by a “bikini barista”
Mr. X had to head to work early and since he drove last night he had to give me a ride home. Neither one of us functions well without coffee in the morning but the Starbucks by his place wasn’t open yet so we ended up going through one of those bikini barista places on 99. The girl was about 18 with a great body and much to friendly for 5 AM, especially when I am in the car with Mr. X, I had to smack him while she wasn’t looking. To make matter worse the coffee wasn’t that good. I suppose that isn’t the drawing point however. OK, I guess I wasn’t really harrassed but all that cleavage, perkiness, and lack of caffeine made me irritable. Mr X. gets a pass for ignoring my obvious early morning charms and gaping because dinner last night was very very good.
At this point you are probably all rolling your eyes and thinking “My God does she ever shut up?” The simple answer is “no”, and with that let’s see what other stuff I can find to ramble on about until my crappy coffee is gone.
Fox News is reporting that Nancy Pelosi is writing a new draft of the health care reform (deform is more like it 😛 ) on her own. Why am I reminded of the image of a million monkeys on a million typewriters trying to pund out Hamlet? (Ha! look whose talking – little miss sitting around in sweats with bed head and coffee rambling incoherently)
I have two questions about this article over at daily pundit – First, a saw? How do they use one of those saws without doing severe damage. Ouch! Second, how did this guy manage this? I am just having trouble visualizing this sequence of events.
(hey I just noticed it’s 6:30 and Megyn Kelly is missing from Fox News. Is she having her baby? If so Congratulations!)
FiveThirtyEight is reporting that their polling numbers show the GOP may take the house next year. Honestly if they are just going to turn around and go along with Obama’s agenda I don’t want it back. If they can hold the line and quit screwing with the economy then bring it on.
Instapundit has photos of those violent Right Wing Extremists that Janet Nepalitano warned use about.
Ever since the WTO riots in Seattle (I was there) I have wondered why when almost all political violence in this country is perpetrated by the left we continually let people paint the right as the violent extremists.
Jumping back to that Iranian nuclear plant – since the source of this info appears to be the CIA, who Nancy Pelosi claims lies to congress on a regular basis, does this mean that Obama has had a secret plan to attack Iran for years before taking office?
Terrorism update – In addition to the Jordanian in Dallas yesterday the FBI also arrested a man in Illinois who was trying to blow up a federal courthouse –
WASHINGTON, Sept 24 (Reuters) – An Illinois man was ordered held on Thursday on charges he tried to blow up a federal building in the state capital, a case unrelated to the New York terrorism plot.
Michael Finton, also known as Talib Islam, was arrested in Springfield, Illinois, and charged with attempted murder of federal officers or employees and trying to use a weapon of mass destruction, charges that carry a life sentence.
The criminal complaint said Finton, 29, converted to Islam while in prison on other charges. It said he idolized an American who allied with the Taliban, John Walker Lindh, drawing the attention of law enforcement authorities.
After returning from a trip to Saudi Arabia in 2008, Finton told an individual, who turned out to be a law enforcement source, that he wanted to fight against Israelis in the Gaza Strip, according to the complaint.
In early 2009, “it appeared that Finton was on the verge of taking action, so it was decided to proactively provide him with an opportunity for action that we controlled, rather than merely hoping to be able to find out and stop him,” according to a government affidavit.
He was introduced to an undercover FBI agent who began working with him to plot an attack, but Finton was repeatedly told he could walk away at any time, according to the Justice Department.
Eventually, Finton picked the federal building in Springfield as the target and on Wednesday he parked a van he believed carried one ton of explosives at the location, the complaint said.
Anyone else see a pattern emerging? (more)
