Open Mike Mondays

Fuck this present state of affairs and the horse on which it hobbled in.

Hear, hear.

So, I wrote this long post today about what's wrong with our proposed $20 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia. I got to the end of it and I thought, "Ugh. Who cares?"


Chief Justice John Roberts suffered a seizure this afternoon. I guess he's okay. The doctor was quoted as saying it was a "benign idiopathic" event. Kind of like American Idol.

I really want to read that post on the Saudi arms deal. PLEEEEEEEEEZZZ!


Luke said...

Hmm, someone has gotten kind of co-dependant.

And how can an idiopathic seizure be benign? By definition something idiopathic is "(of diseases) arising from an unknown cause."

But seriously Andy, while you have the time and the momentum you should really compile your political/religious musings into a book. You should see what gets published these days in non-fiction. You're so much EDGIER :)

"Idiopathic" is on every single ad my main drug account runs. It was originally used even more often, but after a year it occurred to the client that the word isn't particularly consumer-friendly.

Quinn said...

Spouse had an idiopathic event seizure a few years back. Scared the shit out of me, but has never repeated or manifested in any other way.

DJRainDog said...

Here I must agree with little-cicero. I'm very interested in your thoughts on the Saudi arms deal, though I imagine they're much the same as mine.

In short: BAD IDEA! BAD! Though perhaps better arms would make them stop stoning their women and homosexuals in favour of shooting them instead? Dreadful people! I hesitate to even call them human beings, considering how socially developmentally retarded (which I mean in the sense of "coming late") they are. I can't believe we'd send arms to these people, and I shall never understand why the American government persists in pretending they're our friends whilst they stab us in the back and twist the knife.

P.S.: There is nothing "benign" about American Idol. I believe it's secretly run by the Taliban.

Jeff said...

I just realized that whenever I see the word "benign" I subconsciously think of Ernest Borgnine. Similar letters.

Andy said...

Well, I don't think I can decline a request from BOTH LC and DJRaindog.

Matthew said...

I'd also like to read it.

And it's good! (And I'm inimitable! And I'm blushing. Because the current entry on my 'blog was written, like, last Wednesday night, stoned and drinking, and in addition to being about a severely dorky topic, it basically entails me telling most Americans that they're stupid and I deserve to get to punch them in the face for it. USA Today must be SO disappointed in me.

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is a disease of inflammation that results in scarring, or fibrosis, of the lungs. In time, this fibrosis can build up to the point where the lungs are unable to provide oxygen to the tissues of the body
