Back on the Blogging Beach

After five days in Cabo and five days before the mast, it is time to regain my political blogging "land legs". I expect my landing will be smoother than Morpheus competitor "Piranha", pictured here after being shipwrecked on a remote Mexico beach while returning from Cabo. Except for the occasional SailMail, I was not paying much attention to current events while I was gone. Fortunately, one of the members of Morpheus Racing Crew (I was on the return Delivery Crew) provided this crude but succinct and accurate summary of what I missed:
"You missed nothing in the way of news here at home. Numb Nuts is still in charge and a stream of new Numb Nuts are all throwing their hats into the ring to be Chief Numb Nut in '08. There is of course one Numb Nut that has no Nuts and thus will be known as Numb Twat. Numb Twat is likening herself to JFK ... Alberto Gonzales has stepped on his numb nuts by illegally firing 8 Senior Federal Prosecutors for not aggressively going after Democrats in the House and Senate. He claims it was for other reasons , but the Dems are asking for his dismissal as are some Republicans. Could this Numb Nut and the Cock that sits above him be any more incompetent? "
The crewman responsible for this quote has requested anonymity, but I consider him credible as he was among the small percentage of the Morpheus Racing Crew that did not spend time in a Mexico jail on his first night in Cabo. Quoting him here probably assures that I will never be approached to work for a mainstream candidate's campaign, which is probably for the best. His representations notwithstanding, there is quite a bit for DWSUWF to catch up on: The four year anniversary of the Iraq war and occupation demands some reflection, another round of the Executive-Legislative struggle over the execution of the war took place on the Senate floor, Republican bloggers continue to delude themselves over the mood of the American people and consequently risk retaining the White House in '08, CATO Unbound has an interesting series on Libertariansim, and we still need to implement the New Blogger templates. There is work to do.

Where to start? What better way to get back in the blogging kitchen and start cooking up new blog posts than a hearty helping of The Carnival of Divided Government? The Carnival of Divided Government UNDECIMUS - Special Ides of March Edition, tentatively scheduled to post on March 15. was postponed and renamed the Carnival of Divided Government UNDECIMUS - Special St. Patricks Day Hangover Edition which was intend to be served up on the day I returned from my sailing adventure Sunday, March 18 but instead the Carnival of Divided Government UNDECIMUS - Special Spring has Sprung Edition will be served up on Wednesday, March 21 . The good news is that Blog articles may still be submitted for this edition using the carnival submission form. Submitted posts must use include the words and/or concept of "divided government" to be considered. Past posts can be found on the blog carnival index page.
