Carping Tunnel Syndrome

I gotta get an attitude adjustment!
All I've been posting on FB the last week or so is negative stuff.  Even looking at this record the only views that aren't totally negative are making fun of idiots, whatever the stripe. And of course, that offends some in itself.

I've been looking for good news.. HONEST!  But when I typed into the google box 'only good news' the top hit was a site which last post was mid-August!!!
And there should always be something on the Yahoo home page.. and was for a few hours about a 19 year old rookie who homered in his first major league at bat.

And then Michael Clarke Duncan dying at 54 broke that.

Meanwhile, on FB, a friend posts:
So, does anyone out there have anything to say that isn't politics or religion-related? I vote and I'm spiritual...both very personal and private. I may have to take a FB hiatus until Thanksgiving. Just saying'.....

Oh well.. take the light stuff where you can get it.

Like how's about that 'Empty Chair Meme'?

Today was National Empty Chair Day!  Why it seems like just last Thursday the elite beltway news commissariat were agog at the confused and disoriented Clint's senile diatribe.  And how no one could possible get a message from that.  Least of all those whitebread hicks on the convention floor, or the goobers at home watching their 'Make My Day' hero.

The 82-year-old's rambling gravel-voiced conversation with an empty chair – supposedly supporting an invisible Barack Obama – proved a bizarre and confusing warm-up act for Romney.
"Mr President, how do you handle promises that you have made when you were running for election, and how do you handle them? I mean, what do you say to people?" he asked. He berated Obama for not learning from the Russian experience in invading Afghanistan. It was George W Bush who ordered US troops into the country.

Lefty twit!!  Read the Transcript! He was talking about ramping it up in Afghanistan.. Bush left it in a holding situation because you simply cannot win the peace there. That's what the Russian reference is about.

And of course it was racist  ..
According to Mike Elk, labor journalist for In These Times magazine, Clint Eastwood's empty chair routine at the GOP convention was racist, Twitchy reported Friday.
"Eastwood chair rant was RACIST, white man putting dirty words into mouth of black man like a puppet, (sic)" he tweeted.
 Well.. if it was racist, rambling dissonant and confusing the Dems wouldn't have leapt onto the idea, would they?
Note.. Clint didnt abuse the chair did he?  But a union thug just cant help it.. it is who he is.

And this poor recent journo grad got it WAY wrong {That's Juli w/o the 'e' - cute!}

It’s possible Eastwood, confused and bored, just wandered into the Tampa Bay Times Forum, seemed like he had a lot of issues to work out with a certain chair, and the R.N.C. simply offered him its stage upon which to do so. Or was it the chair’s idea? Did Chair Eastwood convince Clint to head down to Florida on some sort of rusty moped? We might never know, but what we do know is this: 
There are already two (2) Twitter accounts honoring Eastwood’s remarks: Clint’s Empty Chair and Invisible Obama. Their half-life was probably this morning, but they’re worth a look, if not a follow.)

Really.. I should be able to laugh at cluelessness like  that.  But even psyching myself into laughing at Chris Matthews doesnt last.  I find it an affront that anyone listens to someone projecting his inverted racism onto others.
