Bleach and starch

Pat Buchanan apparently huffs bleach and starch before he writes for his blog
Pat Buchanan must have been huffing bleach and/or starch when he wrote this post on his blog. I usually reserve my inner monologues for posts in response to a comment. However, PJB’s post deserves a bit of commentary. (I’ve clipped only a portion of his white supremacist musings.)

Kevin Hampton - Gazette Times - Corvallis Oregon

Kevin Hampton is a sports writer for the Corvallis Gazette Times. His latest blog post is titled, “Out with the blackout?“.

Here’s to life-long learning, good friends, and listening.

I am a silly man

I decided to pop out of my self-imposed blogging hiatus to address a recent comment on my site. It seems that a long-time reader of my blog, Shouting Thomas, has taken a bit of umbrage with, well, I guess my entire site — text and graphics included. According to Shouting Thomas, I am a “very silly young man.”

In order to fully comprehend Shouting Thomas’ comment, I feel that it is necessary to re-write his words as translated by my inner monologue.

For your reference and convenience, I am including the original comment sans inner monologue translations…
