An exercise in presumption.
Because I like the word “amaranth.” And because I haven’t posted anything purely silly for a while. With apologies to the late Gelett Burgess.Oh, purple cow! (although to thus address
A creature not in past or present seen,
Or time to come, or time that might have been,
Is odd and somewhat awkward, I confess) –
Should I, inspired by caprice, now take
Thy bovine form and amaranthine hide,
As Jove in fable did, to win as bride
Europa, and his lust for her to slake?
Yet Jove turned bull, not cow; and though by fire
Of passion maddened, in his rash romance he
Did not blaze forth in violet or pansy,
And had the sense to eschew hue of Tyre.
So, cow notorious, though thy color be
Imperial, still I would not be thee.
Meredith at For Keat’s Sake!
tells us of a columnist at Salon, who, as they say, has issues with Sarah Palin:
To one Cintra of Salon, she is a "Christian Stepford wife in a 'sexy librarian' costume," "the White House bunny," a "sheep in ewe's clothing," and other things that I don't want to defile my blogspace wit.
She cites a theory that "approximately 80 percent of all decision making is done at the level of the limbic system -- our lowest, most colorless, reptilian emotional level." Which is to say: "Republican strategies are consistent with a belief that the voting process, for most people, is full of feelings -- but devoid of reason."
Well…As we surge to the polls by the million,
To vote in a manner reptilian,
On the Left they shed tears,
Emit steam from their ears,
And turn amaranth, puce, and vermilion.
Creative Minority Report
(which I need to add to my blogroll soon), a story of some who march to a different drummer...and who have given themselves one of the BEST FREAKING TITLES EVER! HOW can you top...The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers?
What he should have said:
"You can put arugula on hotel food, but it's still hotel food."
"You can wrap a terrorist in a cap and gown and call him a professor of English, but he'll still blow stuff up."
From the way that the Leftists are railing
At Gubernatrix Sarah Palin,
It seems like they know
That the Story of O
May not, after all, be plain sailing.
Seen at The Curt Jester:
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- In an amazing admission, pro-abortion Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg told a feminist group that the basis for legalized abortion should be changed from the so-called right to privacy to the anti-slavery provisions found in the Constitution.
The more I think about this, the bigger it gets. It's not just that they're retreating (or, as George McClellan would put it, "changing their base"), it's that, after 35 years of wrapping themselves in Roe v. Wade as if it were the flag, the pro-abortion side - and not just any abortion rights supporter, but a Supreme Court Justice - is throwing it under the bus. For what was Roe v. Wade based on, if not the right to privacy? And if they don't care about the right to privacy, then who needs Roe v. Wade any more?
A heartfelt THANK YOU! from the Bride and me to all who have been praying for us. The awkward situation has turned out to be far less awkward than we feared, and is safely on its way to a closure.
