Some random thoughts before I commence on the weekend duties:
From Joel’s website:
I cannot sit still while our country goes down a road that has proven to lead to financial ruin. For my children and yours, my family has decided to embark on this journey to help restore some sanity to Washington.
Thanks to Right Klik for running the Ten Buck Fridays poll and Conscientiously Conservative for coming up with the original concept. Great work both of you and the over 80 bloggers who participate. Speaking of CC, I just looked and realized, she’s not on my blogroll! DOH!
Wait a second while I correct that omission.
We’re down to the last few weeks of the campaign season. Is it just me or do any of you feel a bit burned out from all of the politics? I know I am. Not being a career political junkie or reporter, this season has got to be the most focused I’ve ever been on politics. It wears on a robot. I need a good lube job. And a shot of rum. How do the politicians do it? Are they all on coke?
After the election, I’m going to form a new band or at least join one.Â I’m feeling the urge to beat on some skins and stretch out the vocal chords. I’ve definitely got some frustration that needs venting. Not sure how much of those happenings I’ll post on this blog though, as some people are more interested in politics than music and I like my political anonymity. I may have to start another, just to separate the two. Or maybe another page on this one. It’s up in the air for now. We’ll see.
For the rest of the weekend, posting may be lite. My freaking DSL is on the fritz again. Come this Tuesday, that problem will hopefully be solved. The ‘bot is going to cable. Buh-Bye ATT with your dropped service every 5 minutes and a ten minute post taking an hour to complete. Also, my house needs cleaning and the studio needs some maintenance. Bottom line is, it’s just too pretty outside to spend dealing with an off and on internet connection, so there you have it.
Speaking of music, here’s one of my faves from the Doobies:
Enjoy your weekend, my friends.
Another week closer to November and another conservative candidate is the beneficiary of a TBF moneybomb. This week Joel Demos has been chosen by popular vote to receive the coveted reward. Joel has garnered accolades from none other than Ed Morrissey of Hot-Air, who writes:
“Minnesotaâ€™s Fifth Congressional District may be one of the most liberal districts in the nation. It sent Keith Ellison to Congress in 2006 and kept him there in 2008 by a 48-point margin. Itâ€™s a D+23 district according to the Cook Report, but that almost certainly understates the Sisyphean task any Republican would have in pushing Ellison aside, even in a year like this. Instead of Sisyphus pushing the boulder up the hill, Joel Demos gives us a slightly more modern take on how this task looks â€” and what it will take to succeed…
“Joel has the unenviable task of door-knocking in this district, but from what I hear around the campfire, heâ€™s taking that task and others very seriously…”
As RightKlik says:
Demos also took the task of winning your TBF vote very seriously. He needs your help! As he noted in the original intro to his clever viral video, “This only works if you donate!”TBF is proud to help introduce Joel to conservatives all over the country, and we look forward to his victory in November. If you can, please send some cash to Joel Demos!Giving money to hard-working conservative candidates feels good. I know, because I do it every week! I just sent $10 to Joel Demos; now it’s your turn:Donate to Joel Demos here.(PayPal account NOT required)A new TBF poll goes up on Sunday. Please keep the nominations and blog posts, Facebook posts and tweets coming!
Ten Buck Fridays grew from an idea by Conscientiously Conservative.
