Republicans ‘Rush’ to Failure

Tell me that Rush Limbaugh isn’t the de facto head of the Republican Party, and make me believe it. When the head of the Republican Party feels it’s necessary to apologize to that pompous windbag, it’s bad enough – and it doesn’t say much for the Republican constituency that their party believes that upsetting Rush will also drive the voters away. If a congressman says something about Rush that is true, inflammatory or not, he should stand by it, and make damn sure that the voters know it, too. Don’t apologize for calling him an entertainer – although you may be lying when you do so, because I think calling Rush Limbaugh’s bile and mean-spirited self-aggrandizement “entertainment” is a bit of a stretch.

Obligatory “Welcome to the New Year” Post

Whither 2007? The last vestiges of the year fade already from our memories with the excitement of the new year and all those damn resolutions!

I’m starting off 2008 in a decided funk: wholly self-aware of my own tendency not to finish many projects I start, I’m in danger of having those decisions yanked from my hands by a piece of freakin’ hardware – my main external hard drive is being a shit, and of course, it contains the sum total of my artistic creativity from the past 3 years! I’m trying to siphon off what I can. but in many cases, it copies only a couple files and then tells me the next file is either corrupt or impossible to access due to I/O errors :-(. All of my 3D files are there, including everything I’ve done so far on my cooperative film project. So I’m not starting the year out as a happy camper.

I guess my biggest New Year Resolution will be to try to be the best person I can be, both professionally and personally – I plan to work extra hard to, if not be indispensable in my job, at least not to foolishly allow myself to be expendable through lax behaviour or inattention to detail. I don’t know what I want to do with the next 5 years of my life, but I want them to be my choice and not just losing a job because I was careless, and while I have a good reputation at work, I know I can do much better, and I plan to. It’s about time I grew up and became a responsible person.

Of course, on my next job, this very blog will probably show up attached to my résumé – I hope at the very least that they take into account that I take the time to correctly spell “résumé.”
