In One Eye

I've been on the road for the past couple of days and haven't had a chance to post. Most of my attention has been drawn to the Boston Red Sox and their travails. I'd like to say that they've given us an enjoyable season, but I don't really believe it. Let's see: The team featured a shortstop who played more like a sieve, a first base combo whose offensive prowess was virually non-existent, and a pitching staff that gave fans apoplexy any time any of them took the mound.
Let's face it: Take away Damon, Manny and Papi, and you're looking at a .500 team.
Be that as it may, Dear Leader certainly continues to look like a moron. Between the Miers hire (which no one seems to like. The idea that she is the best person he could find makes it clear that GI George needs to get out more.) and the incredibly strident speech of yesterday (It goes without saying that the last strategy of a failing demagogue is to ratchet up the hysteria.), the boy blunder appears to be becoming more and more unhinged.
