Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Eulogies

Well, today is the first of 3 days off in a row for me.  Lily and I were outside for a bit - there's a slight drizzle..  They're calling for a heatwave - starting tomorrow, with temps in the mid 90's (F).  I don't know if I'd call it a heatwave - more like a heat spell.  Soon fall will be here and people will be lamenting about the oncoming cold and snow of winter.  Get over it, people.  In this region seasons change.  If you don't like it, move somewhere else.  Down south the seasons change, too.  They have hot... and they have hotter than hell.  Take your pick.  I'd rather spend 3 or 4 months dealing with snow than roast through that time being hotter than hell.
Yesterday was John McCain's funeral.  I watched some of the eulogies when I got home from work and went through some serous tissue time.  One of the bloggers that I read ranted about George W's presence, venting about the man's failed presidency.  He totally missed the point, but then some people are so obtuse they will never be able to angle in on reason, and purpose.  Democrats and Republicans were unified.  And... who... was... missing?  Who was specifically told not to show up?  There were three eulogies, by a Democrat, by a Republican, and by a daughter.  They all spoke of respect, and honor, and sacrifice, and all of them, while doing so, drove a nail into the political coffin of that one person who was told to "stay away."
I understand that as many in the nation watched, and wiped away quiet tears, this man who never gets an invitation, surrounded by snotty nosed leaches, cheated his way through a game of golf.  His behavior is appropriate for one with no moral compass.  Should we have expected anything else?  His disapproval rating has hit an all time high, and his supporters are getting really angry.  They are beginning to see his future is already lost.  They are starting to understand he is going to be uninvited out of the White House.  Their minority numbers are showing themselves to be rather small.  The temperature is going up.  They are beginning to sweat, not only the small stuff, but the big stuff as well.  Almost daily we get to see another one of his compatriots pleading guilty, and flipping.
This whole thing is, well, rather funny because this is what they voted for: a scumbag who has been lying and cheating all of his life.  A self-centered lout, he has colluded with anyone, and everyone, who could give him what he wanted. He is a living obstruction that will soon be flushed from the system.
Will he be eulogized when he's gone?

    1. No you won't. He'll be buried at sea, anonymously, like Bin Laden.

  2. I think we'll throw that parade he wants when he's gone.

    1. I suspect there will be more than one parade.

  3. I saw a small article with accompanying photo of George W. slipping Michelle Obama some pieces of candy or gum during McCain's funeral, while Laura and Barack looked on, amused. I know that Michelle and W. are unlikely pals, and it was an adorable moment. It made a lump come to my throat, and I didn't understand why until I read the comments and one woman remarked, "We're starving for simple kindness across party lines in this country." That nailed it, for me. I'm so glad Dump wasn't invited to the funeral and we could remember for a few moments what it's like to live in a more civil country.

    1. Civility will return, once this stain is laundered into oblivion.
