Music for long hours observing Saturn

Saturn hovers in the western sky after dark these days. Few objects compare to the ringed-one in any aperture telescope.
What's playing in my headphones in these cold inky hours you ask?

Arvo Part: Fratres
Henryk Gorecki: Quasi una fantasia
Phillip Glass: Violin Concerto

... and of course, to celebrate tiny Mimas, from time to time one must put on some Crash Test Dummies:

Who put whitey
in the white house?

you did baby
you did!

The Disgruntled Chemist: I've been such a fool!

Once again TDC and the General lead the way. I feel as though the intelligently designed scales have fallen from my impossibly complex eyes!
What a relief to know I can stop thinking...there's no point!

.............. on second thought maybe I should get those Chem labs graded for tomorrow....
something tells me the Rapture won't be taking me anywhere....

McClellan's Replacement Named!

In a surprise move the White House announced this morning that Scott McClellan will be replaced by Don Garbanzo de La Mancha. Mr. Garbanzo, pictured here packing for his new assignment, is perhaps best-known for his early 80's statement "I'm a lover, not a hater", a sign of his future talents as he was not in fact born until April 1, 2003. The administration is silent as to why a life-long socialist and anti-militarist would be the best voice for Mr. Bush's lame-duck period, although Vice-President Chaingang was quoted (after several belligerent pre-breakfast Bloody Marys) as affirming that they needed someone with more brains than George Bush.

Senor Garbanzo refused to be interviewed and to all questions responded with a demure meh eh!

Scott McClellan Resigns!

Oh No!
How can this be? How can he turn on his Lord and Master thus?!
Didn't Mr Bush just say he was satisfied with everyone in his administration?
Isn't he the decider? Well? You son of a pup!
Scotty, you swine, you traitor, you, you you, ...surrender monkey you!
Do you presume to be wiser than the Wizard of Crawford? The Sagebrush Saruman?
America now waits with bated (minty-fresh) breath...
What arrogant turd-blossemette will Cheney choose to spit on America on a daily basis?
Grab your galoshes boys and girls.
With this crowd in power,
it only ever gets worse.

The Wrong War

As I go under the knife this morning I do so serene in the knowledge that George Bush & Co. are diligently advancing on all fronts in the Eternal War to Find a Catchy Slogan.
('Cause they're doing bugger all to deal with the real one...)
I expect, upon waking with my newborn incision, to be informed that Jeff Gannon has been appointed Secretary of the newly minted Cabinet position of Fatherland Semantic Security.
The website will be simply dreamy.

Snippet of an Ode to the Christian Right

Please don't feel obligated
to wait for the Rapture on our account.
Y'all can clear out right now
as far as I'm concerned...
now git!
