Around the Blogroll and Elsewhere: Special Life in a Pack of Mad Dogs Edition
Posted by Jill | 9:26 PM
Sorry about the silence from these here parts; I'm on a project deadline, the end is in sight, I'm in a state of paranoid panic about the external testing process, I haven't had a decent night's sleep in a month, and I'm pretty much a burnt-out husk at this point.

It's just as well, really, because when I look around me at the institutionalized lunacy that surrounds us, all I want to do is turn on the TV and watch stupid young people obsess about crown molding and granite countertops on HGTV and whatever Guy Fieri is scarfing down these days.

But life in Teabag America goes on, and right now Mexicans seem to have replaced Muslim terrorists as the favorite boogeyman of the right:

In Iowa, one of the whitest states in the country, a Congressional candidate wants to microchip illegal immigrants "like dogs".

How to respond when someone asks "Show me your papers" in Arizona.

Oh, and anyone who uses "wackadoos" in a sentence is a friend of mine!
