Megan vs. Reality

I'll let the others handle today's idiocy while I shower down after my last post, but I just have to comment on this (Two updates below):

Politicians v. reality:

I pick on Obama precisely because as of now, he's my guy, so I'd like to hear something less fantastical.
If she picks on Obama because he's her guy, Hillary must be her life partner.

brad adds:
Look, I support the guy. He's the only major presidential candidate in the field that I'd even consider voting for, and that's been true since the inception of the race.
Megan thus establishes her indie cred. She saw Obama play in a tiny club that doesn't exist anymore, back when he was still cutting EPs in his garage. She's been there, man, before you.
Or not. Consider this post, from the end of August last year.
After my much-regretted decision to vote for George W. Bush in 2004, I've kind of been sitting on the political sidelines. I'm pretty sure I'll hate whoever gets elected.
What if Hayek and Mussolini come back from the dead and form a fake libertarian but actual corporatist dream ticket, Megan?
Vote Democrat, you say, then. John Edwards teeth sure are pretty, but his economic polices sure aren't. Hilary Clinton . . . even if I were disposed to vote for her vintage 1967 earnest technocratic policies, I'd be more than a mite uncomfortable with a political lineup that went Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton. Which means I'm probably going to end up voting for Obama just because I like his senior economic advisor, Austan Goolsbee . . . and then regretting it as soon as he actually starts doing things.
See? Megan was HUGE for Obama from the very beginning, as soon as he picked an economic advisor she liked, and she heard about that decision. (Btw, ain't shit about Obama on Aug 31 is the first post of any kind I found where she talks about him with anything resembling substance.) Obama declared in February.
Next up, Megan talks about how downloading In Rainbows shows she's a lifelong Radiohead fan.

Update II:

This is what MM and Obama are totally gonna be like soon:

Oh man, I crack me up! So much more fun to video my cats than to actually delve into MM's insipiditity. Also fun; making up new words.

Nice couch NoT! How many Naugas™ had to die for it?

Cats very nice too.

I actually think it might be real leather. I got it off craigslist from a guy who'd been forced to sell it by his newly cohabitant girlfriend. Got a damn good deal on it (and the matching love seat), too.

How does one tell if it's real or not if one can't find the tag?

M. Bouffant said...

Was craigslist guy's GF vegan? That might tell you something. I was just joking, or green w/ envy, never having had anything but decent Republican cloth-covered furniture.

Did your feline roomies know each other before you adopted them, or are they just social?

NutellaonToast said...

No, they're brother and sister. If you want two cats, ALWAYS get a brother sister pair. I have never seen a bro-sis that didn't get along swimmingly. I've had those two a month now and they're just endless fun. They're practically inseparable.

I was actually going to mention that on my next cat porn post.

They are also very social with people, but I don't know how they feel about other cats yet.
