Oops I Did It Again

I seem to be slowly leaking my political leanings onto this blog. Oops. I guess I just cannot deny my inner liberal anymore.

Latest goodie plucked from the internet, how an uppity black Congresswoman was railroaded out of office on the basis of a fabricated quote. Payback is a bitch, especially when you mess with Republicans and press of hearings on their back room shenanigans.

Here’s the NPR story that blew her out of the water. What was that about the liberal media? Yeah right. This is NPR pegged McKinney as a hothead, unstable, a ‘looney.’ Check out the August 21 report where Denise Majette, who beat McKinney, promises her district ‘to not do anything to embarass you.’ Sounds like a perfect Democratic congresswoman (to ensure Republican control of the House).

Time

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and run to catch up with the sun, but it’s sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone the song is over, thought I’d something more to say…
