TGIF, I Think

It’s Friday the 13th and Weird Wally (WW) wants to know where the party is?  The Republican Party, that is.  Meanwhile, Sgt. Bow Bergdhal has returned home, but he still ain’t talking and, oddly enough, WW finds himself not really giving a shit.  There’s a lot more here than meets the eye and this may be one of those cases, according to WW, where the sum of all truths is actually less than the total of the part-truths which make up the whole.  To prove his point, WW mentions that Mitt Romney is scheduled for Meet the Press, this Sunday.

John McCain

John McCain, the verbal and Elder Senator from Arizona, is obsessing on the situation in Iraq again, and insisting Obama fire his national security team, replace them with former Bush team members, and send in the troops, just like last time.   But then, like most all Republicans, McCain seems to follow the advice of author Tom Robbins, when it comes to Murphy’s Law; “If anything can go wrong it will go wrong and, it can be used to your advantage, provided of course, things go wrong enough.”  And if McCain and those of his ilk can make things go wrong enough, they might win their first few battles against demographics and Mother Nature.  But in the end we all know that you can’t beat either one.

Orange is the New Black and Cuckoo’s Calling

WW is very happy that he only finished almost half of the thirteen episodes, of Orange is the New Black.  And although he continues to deny ever having been in prison, WW does admit to having many felons and former inmates as friends and acquaintances.  “Everything seems so real,” he said and can’t wait to see how the two prison yard alpha females, Vee and Red, work out their differences.  Shit’s getting deep.  “Kind of like a good book you can’t put down and it's way past your bedtime,” he said.

Speaking of books, WW tried, but never got into Harry Potter.  But he is reading, “Cuckoo’s Calling,” by Robert Galbraith, a pseudonym for J.K. Rawling.   Although he just started this novel, Wally speaks highly of its author.

Weird Wally Sez:  “Lifelong learning is very cool.  Even on weekends.” And he is insisting that we can all learn a little something from the wildlife with whom we coexist.  By learning a simple lesson from the honey badger, for instance, WW feels that we can come to better understand our politicians and the world they inhabit.
