as in, Mandate Their Asses…
More than 250 in the House (make Nancy happy!), def 60 in the Senate (could be edgy, some, a couple, of the nearly dead will scrape in… I think) and more than a 5 pt spread for Obama. As much as possible.
Sock it to them!
Other than that, a local tidbit, I am getting robocalls on all sides of “8″, SS Marriage. AND both sides are using audio of Ob on “civil unions”, “Prop 8″, “Gay Marriage”, tampering with “the constitution” (that would be our state constitution, but he is vague) and so on.
He ended up servicing all sides with quotes. Way to go! (and it could be a harbinger)
Sock it to them!
Last, specifically for distraction (a word overused by the Ob camp!), I had assumed this got widespread coverage end of last week, but I am gathering it did not… There is an absence of good photos of Otto which may be one reason. Or, perhaps, that juggling of the crabs in his tank is just too revealing a metaphor.
The short-circuit had baffled electricians as well as staff at the Sea Star Aquarium in Coburg, Germany, who decided to take shifts sleeping on the floor to find out what caused the mysterious blackouts.
A spokesman said: “It was a serious matter because it shorted the electricity supply to the whole aquarium that threatened the lives of the other animals when water pumps ceased to work.
“It was on the third night that we found out that the octopus Otto was responsible for the chaos.
“We knew that he was bored as the aquarium is closed for winter, and at two feet, seven inches Otto had discovered he was big enough to swing onto the edge of his tank and shoot out the 2000 Watt spot light above him with a carefully directed jet of water.”
I’d vote for Otto, just to endorse his wanton and selfish chaos theory:
“Once we saw him juggling the hermit crabs in his tank, another time he threw stones against the glass damaging it. And from time to time he completely re-arranges his tank to make it suit his own taste better – much to the distress of his fellow tank inhabitants.”
[hey! I eschewed this sort of photo!]
