Well, my fellow Politicos, it's that time of year, when teachers and schools have their crunch-time, and we're trying hard to wrap up the year. I've been neglecting my postings, and even missed a #FridayFollow on twitter (*gasp!*). So I thought I'd do something quick and simple: a smattering of my favorite images as of late. So here's a quick glimpse into what's been passing through my overloaded brain for the last couple of weeks, and a promise to be back at it as soon as school's out. Enjoy the following links and images. (These images are from all over the internet, many from tumblr.com, so if you happen to know a source to whom I can credit one, send me a link and I will do so!)
Flooding Cajun Country to Protect The Rest
Child Labor is A-OK by GOP!
Missouri, Utah and Maine. Yeah, you know us lily-livered liberals, always trying to give those pesky little kids a break when they could be slaving away for corporate profits. Go figure.
How 'Bout That Rapture, Huh?
Harold Camping, had stockpiled between $38 and 65 million dollars that he squirreled away, uh, cause you can take it with you??? Let's just pray he's arrested for fraud, 'cause he says he 'aint giving any of it back!

It's All Enough to Drive A Girl to Drink...
Nerd Prom 2011: White House Correspondents Dinner
watch this. Why is it called Nerd Prom? It's a chance for the nerdy, wonky pundit world, for those of us who actually paid attention in American History and English and were on the yearbook and newspaper, to actually hob-knob with the glitterati (jocks and cheerleaders) on our own turf for one fabulous night a year. Thus, you get crazy, not part of the natural world-type match-ups like Rachel Maddow tending bar and chatting with Palin (a conversation for which I'd love to have been a fly on the wall...) and countless odd encounters never seen in any other time or space. A pundit's dream. And, yes, I actually had it entered on my Blackberry's calendar. Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?
Infrastructure, Infrastructure, Infrastructure: The New MSNBC TRMS Ads
I absolutely love the new The Rachel Maddow Show Lean Forward ads by Spike Lee. The first round were great, but the new ones focused on infrastructure and Rachel using salt shakers to describe Pakistan's relationship (or lack thereof) with India are brilliant. One of the reasons I love TRMS is because of just that: Rachel is wicked smart, but has the gift of being able to explain world events to her viewers as easily as if we were sitting across the table from her at our favorite greasy spoon:
And her love of American ingenuity, that strong belief that America can still do great things is illustrated in this one:
Liberal Gun Club as a prank, I just want to thank you - who knew??? Funny, and a practical gift, too! Going shooting this Sunday, matter of fact...
More of my rants soon, my fellow Politicos. And I have a feeling I'll be making up for lost time! Leave your latest thoughts below and join the conversation!
