Mayor Sam After Dark
Spent the evening with my special lady and a birthday dinner on the Westside. No, I didn't smell it either. It could be, as Mayor Frank said, whoever dealt it, smelt it. Nonetheless, when you think the shit you're full of doesn't stink, then what does it matter? Perhaps calling another blogger full of shit is a bit over the top, so lets say instead, "often wrong." I mean the reports of the demise were not only a bit exaggerated, but quite frankly, off the mark. I mean figures don't lie.
Of course, what if your not really a blogger after all? That presents a completely new proposition for Sherry Bebitch Jeffe - does that leave her with knowing NO bloggers? So are we obsessed? Yes, but not with shit, stenches, rockets, the LA Times or even dear old Sherry (not Shirely, Mailander) herself. We just get off on all the extra traffic we get. (Yes the blog that's not a blog is second only to Google in directing folks our way!)
But getting back to the odor. Indeed, there's a strong one in the San Fernando Valley tonight, and no, its not a stench nor shit, but the Southern California phenomenon of the wild fire. It that's smoky smell so familiar to those of us who grew up around campfires, but on steroids and for all the wrong reasons. The smoke is thick and strong here in the Valley, not really noticeable in Santa Monica this evening, but when within a mile or so of the 405, that burning brush smell starts to take hold.
So aside from the fire, what is the stench? Is it really spreading to other liberal suburbopolises? Or is it more akin to the Taos Hum, that only certain folks can sense? It may be time to put Art Bell on the case.
Let me also take this opportunity that some folks have taken to piling on my blogging partner. This young man is extraordinarily bright and insightful. He has a great sense of humor and a keen political eye. I also know him to be a decent human being quite dedicated to his family and friends. Its my pleasure to work with him and he is the main reason for the success of this blog. I just shoot my mouth off, he gets the real deals.
In other news, my party has shown how its wrong on the issue of gays as well as illegal immigration. Arnold took the safe route and vetoed equal rights to a significant segment of the population, while the House GOP apparently passed over local Congressman David Dreier not because of his weak stance on illegal immigration but because of his alleged homosexuality. Mayor Sam likes girls, but he is in solidarity with his pink brothers and sisters to live their lives as they do, with the same rights as everyone else. That's pretty Republican to me, but what do I know!
