I know I hadn't even gotten around to posting here about Ike yet, but it looks like we are not evacuating unless it makes another unexpected turn. (They expect a turn, they just don't expect it to be enough to bring it up towards us.) Yesterday we thought there was a high chance that we would be. I guess I need to call my aunt and tell her not to buy any extra groceries yet.

In unrelated news, [ profile] columbina  linked to this column of Scalzi's and I really, really think it's right on the money. Every Democrat/liberal/progressive in America needs to stop and take a deep breath and refocus. Including me. (And possibly Obama - although considering that he's practically being ignored in the news right now, it's hard to know.)

I'm afraid I tend to side with Columbina. I don't think Obama is "tone deaf," but I think America is proving it has not learned jack shit from 8 years of W. We can see the election slipping away, and it'll be close enough for the Republicans to steal again or the Republicans will actually WIN. And Scalzi's talk about how we're supposed to "fight" isn't very practical... What are we supposed to DO? We're volunteering for Obama. I'm writing an anti-McCain article. Big freakin' deal.

This country is composed of approximately 50 percent freakin' morons. They're gonna hand the car keys back to the same evil dipshits who got us into this mess. W has pushed us to the brink... and McCain and Palin are gonna do everything they can to finish the job.

In other news: best of luck with Ike! Seriously, enough of this crap with the storms.
