On my way home from work today I noticed that the car in front of me was a pizza delivery vehicle -- and it was covered with Mensa stickers. It quite amused me -- looks like high intelligence doesn't necessarily correlate to career success. That explains our current president, methinks.
Intelligence -- even brilliance -- can be quite a cool thing. It can also suck big, hairy goat balls if you expect too much from it. And from this observance comes the title of my humble blog.
Our country, and our culture, is in the grasp of the control of an ineffective, misguided elite: people with the 'right' education, job history, and connections who seem to think they know better than the rest of us how our lives should be lived and our country governed. For much of our history it has been so and that hasn't been a problem. Now, however, it's become unacceptable and,quite frankly, pretty frikkin' annoying. I have started this blog in an attempt to address these technocratic bastages.
I'm not a great writer, so please forgive me if I sound stupid from time to time. I'd love to write as eloquently as Borepatch, but you're not going to read anything from me referencing both ancient Roman history and the need to vote out our "Representatives" . However, I hope to post thoughts that are occasionally amusing, and perhaps once in a white amusing.
Borepatch (pbuh) is fond of using the phrase "blogfather", so I have appropriated that to describe my relationship with him. If you don't read him on a daily basis you are dead to me.
Oh yeah, commenting: I like comments. Please feel free to post any comments you like. Also please understand that if you're too dickulent I'll have to ban you.
In closing, Obama delenda est.
*yes, I realize that quoting Judy Bloom requires me to surrender my e-peen. Alas, my wife confiscated it a long time ago. At best I can allow the confiscation of the sad, empty area where it once lived.
