How Very Fortunate We Are

For the benefit of those with lives or weak constitutions, the hyper-partisan hyperlinks are below the fold....For the benefit of everyone, there's this...

Via Neptunus Lex comes this heartfelt thanks to those that helped us dodge the bullet named Sarah Palin.
As president, she might have caused the stock market to plunge over 2,000 points in the six weeks after she assumed office, left important posts in the Treasury unfilled for two months, been described by insiders as ‘overwhelmed’ by the office, and then gone on to diss the British Prime Minister on his first state visit, giving him, as one head of state to another, a set of DVDs plucked from the aisles of Wal Mart, a tasteful gift, even if they can’t be played on a TV in Britain. (Note, the Prime Minister, who is losing his eyesight, may even be blind in one eye).
As vice president, she might have told Katie Couric that when the stock market crashed in 1929, President Franklin D. Roosevelt went on TV to reassure a terrified nation. Or on her first trip abroad as Secretary of State, she might have, as the AP reported, “raised eyebrows on her first visit to Europe...when she mispronounced her “EU counterparts names and claimed U.S. democracy was older than Europe’s,” then gave the Russian minister a gag “reset” button, on which the word “reset” was translated incorrectly.

Whew! Boy howdy aren't we lucky? Read the whole thing....

The Anchoress takes a long and detailed look at both sides of just how fortunate we are that the cupboards in the white House now stock Waygu Steak* and not, you know, moose....

Even our friends the Canuckistanis are green with envy about how lucky we are....
... all I can say is "America, you are so f***ed."

Even the normally apolitical Galrhan takes a moment to remark on how lucky some of our new allies are to have dodged the same bullet and how happy they must be to have trusted us after all these years.

AJ Strata gives thanks for the non hick priorities exhibited in the recent stimulus bill...
  • $33,725 has been set aside to install automatically-flushing toilets in the city of Sumter , South Carolina.
  • $500,000 has been set aside to build a dog park in Chula Vista , California.
  • $886,000 has been set aside to build a 36-hole disc-golf course in Austin , Texas.
  • $1.4 MILLION has been set aside to build a water park in Pine Bluff , Arkansas.
  • $2 MILLION has been set aside to help residents in North Miami, Florida, switch over to energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs.
  • $650 MILLION has been set aside to provide digital TV coupon

 ...with nary a cent spent on that silly-ass fusion research that ChimpyMcHitlerbush had us lash ourselves to back in '01...but golly a rube like Palin might have schemed to have appropriations money spent on something silly like actually funding fusion research. I mean she's into that sort of scary magic stuff isn't she?

Whew! Boy, wounded veterans sure are feeling lucky right about now!

Lucky lucky lucky!

I'm gonna have to cut the good news off there...I wouldn't want anyone to get light headed from the giddiness...

Not that I`m bitter....

* Note: I don't care if a private citizen eats freaking caviar, but the POTUS flaunting his taxpayer funded parties in the current times seems gauche even to me.
