I used today’s word in a tweet to axelrod. Came in handy.

He’s a neighbor boy that I put on the bus in the mornings. I tutor his brother after school.

perfect timing, so will he be primaried?
Btw, i went to the Caps game on Sat at noon. it was a great game, and my first of the season. The guy next to us must sell some of his tickets bc i had a fellow pittsburgher next to me. she was extremely nice and we hit it off famously, she’s a huge caps fan, but doesn’t hate the Penguins. Said she was from around Monroeville [south or north allegheny, i can’t recall which]. I have to say people from the Pgh district are by and large the friendliest, nicest people going.

Then it could be Cal. to NY.

Hmmn. Could be, could be. But calumny would misspell all the lumatics between Cal and NY in IL.

There are already two guys running against him. Of course, the primary is the real election there.

North Allegheny isn’t near Monroeville, but both South and East Allegheny are.

Yes, we’re congenitally gregarious.

must be south allegheny then that she said. my kids always say i will talk to just about anyone and i do. including random opponents in songpop and WWF! AND i generally find a way to turn the conversation to politics, so i found out that the opponent who lives in WV but is originally from LA is a conservative, guntoting former military guy, and the guy from RI of all places is ALSO a conservative. that one especially surprised me being NE. Both of them are fox news viewers and they are OUTRAGED over benghazi and the media’s silence.

I heard a weird bowdlerization on the radio Friday in Colorado. The Aerosmith song “Janie’s Got a Gun.”

Instead of singing “and put a bullet in his brain” they changed it to “left him in the pouring rain.”

So, we’re now apparently concerned about inciting violence against child molesters.

It is 62 here and so windy that a huge gust took the big trellis with the clematis right down off the side deck a couple of hours ago-just great, that is a heavy thing that I will need to ask my neighbor up the hill-who is a very strong guy-to help me replace. I think I might have some treated wood left in the storage barn to rebuild it...

The calumnies put out by
Obama and all his minions
Are mostly from lunatics
And their insane opinions

I doubt any have ever been
A “commoner” like most of us-
They’re likely not into walking
And have never ridden the bus

And so this bunch of airheads
Whose experiences are so few
Are living in wealth and shelter-
Not in reality like me and you...
