1. After posting about the annoyance tendency of Keith R. A. DeCandido to use the word chuckle far and above the call of duty, I decided to see what his home page looked like. What I learned about Mr. DeCandido - (1) he seems to concentrate on TV franchise-related books; I saw books for Star Trek, Buffy, CSI, etc. (2) he has almost no sense of web page aesthetics (and that's coming from a techie that's just as happy with black text on a white background as anything) and (3) he's a moonbat.
At the bottom of his page, he has something called "The FreedomClock". It is a countdown applet, with (as of this writing) about 360-something days on it. Hmmm, what happens in about a year? Oh yes, the next president will be sworn it. So to Mr. DeCandido, Bush leaving office is the start of "freedom".
It's probably just as well that I had decided to kick him to the curb over his chuckle-happy ways, but now I can throw this guy on the heap with the other idiots.
2. I saw perhaps the stupidest bumper sticker yet (and given that I live here in the People's Republic of Austin, where liberals love to dispense their special brand of "knowledge" in 10" x 3" increments, that's saying something indeed). Can't find an image of it on-line but it read "The Dixie Chicks For President".
Wow. The amazing level of moonbattery required to think that counts as some form of reality-based political commentary is stunning. I was so shocked I forgot to see if it was on a Volvo or not.
