I Heart Chex Mix

Normally I hate nature programs with a loathing so powerful even cookies can't assuage it. But right now I'm watching this thing on the Amazon river on an HDTV and I'm fucking riveted. Did you know there's a fish that can breathe air when it needs to? And a frog that never leaves the water? And a fish that looks like a leaf?A fish that looks like a leaf! Only in the Amazon would such backwards logic work so well! Well's over.

So I think I owe it to no one in particular to comment on the whole John Edwards travesty. As you may or may not know, I offered myself up as a big ol' fan of the guy back whenever I did that post about being a big ol' fan of the guy. It would appear that the rest of America was not as blinded by his presidential hair as I was. Oh well.
When I read the article about his infidelity I aimed the brunt of my frustration at the Missus over IM.

me: Why can't you people just keep it in your pants?!

His answer was as mu
ch as one can expect from a man.

him: I'm sorry.

Harumph. The bastardo is lucky he didn't win the nomination. If he had succeeded and this bullshittake ended up losing the White House for us I would've personally Lorena Bobbited him. Actually, I wouldn't because I don't have the stomach for that kind of thing. Of course, I don't know that I would've needed to considering McCains previous and rumored affairs have done nothing to tarnish that external moral fiber he sports, but still...I really wanted to believe this was a man who was above such things. Qu'elle rat.

So that's what I have to say about that. I still think he has some wonderful ideals...and what go
es on in his marriage is really none of my business, but i strongly believe a truly presidential man would never have gotten caught.

I'm going now. Taye Diggs in HD is apparantly just as riveting as the Amazon.

I'm sure there's an innocent explanation - maybe he thought the woman he slept with was a hooker. Question for today: What would you do if you caught your husband making love to a sex doll?

I never really liked Edwards. Something about that whole expensive hair cut thing really bothered me. Now we know who he was really trying to look good for.

Yes, honey.. there is even an insect that looks like a leaf, and bright red frogs, and little people with sharp-pointy sticks in the Amazon. So what happened... did you lose your Cable and are now back to watching PBS on the antenna?

I wish John Edwards would slink back into the Amazon muck... only to emerge to have his hair done, and perhaps, mate. Elliot Spitzer ought to prosecute him. Oh yeah, too late.

I want to pop him in his buck teeth.

Earlier this year, a couple of my favorite economists (includes McCloskey and Galbraith), called "leading economists" by the press, endorsed John Edwards. They endorsed him because of his economic plan to solve the growing income gap & other socio-economic issues (too many to mention). That didn't get much press thanks to the coverage on his hair.
By the way, does anyone know who Missouri state Represntative Scott Muschany (Republican) is? No? Well he was recently charged with sexually assaulting a 14 year old girl, the daughter of a woman whom he was having an affair.
So to sum up on our elected officials through a celebrity tabloid viewpoint: Democrats tend to cheat on their wives and Republicans tend to be pedophiles who in turn cheat on their wives. I could go on and on about the Republicans but it's freakin' 100 degrees out, it's Friday, and the Old Guard would get pissed off.

Another plus for that Amazon doc is that it was narrated by DCI Sam Tyler from Life on Mars.

Did you also notice that all the creatures of the Amazon grow to be larger and stranger-looking than they are anywhere else? It makes you wonder what's in that water or is that sort of evolution necessary for them to survive? It's an interesting food chain and one of the most powerfully beautiful and terrifying places left on earth. (Terrifying from the standpoint you wouldn't want to be stranded there.) I guess the other thing that's very concerning is that it's in such jeopardy due to the expanding destruction of the forest environment for economic (rubber, etc.) development purposes. It makes you wonder if the entire earth will be harvested at some point? Uh oh, this is turning into one of my blogs, sorry.

P. S. What about the Chex Mix?

Rachel said...

I like rice chex.

Sarah said...

I was promised a Chopwatch update. Harumph.

I love nature shows -- I really do. I wish I could find politicians half as attractive as I find fish that look like leaves and frogs that live in the water all the time.

Still, I keep voting. Because I can dream, can't I?

Effortlessly Average said...

I'll tell ya why they can't keep it in their pants: cuz there's always a woman willing, despite knowing there's a "wife." Everyone's lambasting John, which is justified as far as the whole "I'm moral enough to be your president" goes. But what about the mistress? She knew he's married. I read/hear few comments about HER culpability in it. Granted, it takes two to tango, as the cliche goes, but c'mon in as much as it's another cliche that men can't keep it in their pants, so is the one about women leaping into bed with anyone famous/rich/powerful. I mean really, you think some of these fugly actors/singers would bed as many women as they do if they worked at Wal-Mart?

Kara said...

future - rachel - sarah: i lurve chex mix. that's all.

mary - and voting is a damn good time!

average - don't get me wrong, man. that woman is one skanky ho. but that's just the thing, she's an no-name skanky ho who will never be anything but a skanky ho. edwards was trying to be a leader...a public political figure...this makes his inability to curb his libido infinitely more infuriating.
