Keep the change - A blogger's resource.

This post will be a change of pace as we await the results of the New Hampshire primary. One thing is certain, the more things change the more they remain the same and clearly, a change is gonna come. The sea change represented by change agents like Obama, Huckabee, Romney, Clinton, McCain and Edwards is going to change the game. There is no changing channels, but you may change your mind, as the leadership of both parties change hands in this changing political climate.

Bloggers will be short changed as columnists, pundits, and politicians compete for the limited supply of phrases containing the word "change" for the needed blog post titles in the next 24 hours. But leopards can't change their spots, and unless you are a lead blogger, the view never changes. As a service to my fellow bloggers, at this time of critical change, I offer this incomplete list of phrases, clichés, and song lyrics containing the word "change". I have a linked a few posts, columns and headlines that have already grabbed a change phrase, but there simply will not be enough to go around. I do not want to ration these, so everyone is going to have to share. If anyone has any spare change clichés, or loose change links to contribute, please share them in the comments or send me an e-mail [ mw at dividedwestandunitedwefall dot com], and I will update the list. Together we can get through this and change the paradigm. Look, I'd like to change the world, but I don't know what to do, so I leave it up to you.

Phrases

Clichés
  • A leopard doesn't change its spots.
  • The more things change, the more they stay the same.
  • Unless you are the lead dog, the view never changes.
  • A change will do me (you) good.
  • Time changes all things.
  • Change is in the air.

Song Lyrics
  • Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes - David Bowie
  • The Times they are a'changing - Bob Dylan
  • Nothing can change the shape of things to come. - Max Frost
  • A change is gonna come - Sam Cooke
  • I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do, so I'll leave it up to you. - Ten Years After

Divided Change and Balanced Change.™ Now that is fair change.

Hillary is bad for women --- period.

Think about it. Any time a guy has amorous urges one look at Hillary Clinton and no more. I bet if she is elected women will be bitching (but not moaning) about all the sex they no longer get.

Think I'm wrong, then try it. Get yourself good and ready. Then take a look at a Hillary picture. No more erection.

Told ya!

Not sure what Eric's comment has to do with this post, but it does sound as though eric has had a great deal of practice getting himself "good and ready."
