Random Rambling Reality Checks

1. Will conservatives please stop campaigning for Bobby Jindal to be chosen for McCain's Veep.

I like Bobby Jindal, I think he's got a good head on his shoulders, but he's only just been sworn in as governor of Louisiana, the closest any state in the USA has come to being a 3rd World basket case. He's got a hell of a lot of work to do to clean out the corruption, incompetence, and simple sense of state mandated hopelessness that's pretty much dominated Louisiana since before Huey Long. Let him get at least a term in to do his job before you start talking about him hitting the federal scene. Hell, if he's half as smart as his record shows, he could make a run for President himself in 2016 or 2020 after he has a couple of terms in.

So let Bobby do his job. Please.

Don't make me come down there.

2. Will someone please get Barack Obama a book like this:
Then maybe he might learn that slapping taxes on companies to somehow force them to lower their prices will only serve to cause them to RAISE THEIR PRICES.

3. Congrats to Tory Boris Johnson who beat Red Ken Livingstone to become Mayor of London, a city that would normally elect a shaved orangutan with brain damage if it ran on a Labour-Left Wing ticket.

Now show some balls like old Maggie Thatcher and get that city running again. What used to be the capital of the biggest empire in your puny planet's history has become a drink sodden, crime-ridden, basket case that, unless something drastic is done, will, within a generation, either collapse into either total anarchy, or become a radical Islamist city state.

That's all for now, keep watching the skies, because we're watching you.

Highest Greetings, Alien Overlords,

I just wanted to humbly state how impressed I am with your blog. You could teach more than a few earthlings how to create dynamic, non cookie cutter blogs with great content. When you take over the Earth, if all you do is banish the bland content from the web, I will see your coming as a blessing.

PS – Not to suck up, but if I can make a request for your lordship, I would rather not work in the salt mines when the day of reckoning comes.
