It's 1999, my niggas...

Subject line : Irrelevant I've been listening to Bones-Thugs-n-Harmony's E. 1999 Eternal album for a couple of days now. Perhaps it's my little way of wishing it was still 99, still reeling from the wounds of the drive-by impeachment Republicans were trying to shove down our throats. The towers were still standing, and our wild-eyed governor was busy wrecking public education, throwing away the record surplus left behind for him by Ann Richards, and waiting for a high-profile evangelist to save him from his bacchanalia. Those were the days. Bush made a surprise visit to Iraq today. Good on him. I don't give him credit for much since everything he touches seems to turn to shit, but I'm guessing his late night study sessions with Condi gave him a head start on restoring some of the dignity he's lost on his long, strange trip. It's been reported that this trip was planned two weeks ago. Something about that revelation strikes me as odd. He visits a few days after Zarqawi's bloated face was plastered on TV screens worldwide, a day after his 33% approval ratings were revealed, and on the day that Karl Rove was cleared of any wrongdoing in the Valerie Plame leak case. Hm. King Obvious doesn't want us to think this a photo op. For the next hour or so, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, but come 11:45am, it's back to the real world...

Although I'm saddened by the dripping venom of hate towards the president, I have good news for you. If there were a race amongst Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Al Gore in '08, I'd vote for Al Gore. I never thought I would prefer that goofball over the others.

Where's the hate? I'm a liberal...we don't hate 'round these parts.

How's your summer going so far?

goofball? I think that trip up north has affected your judgement.

:) You know you're my favorite lib, right Denise?

Our summer is going good. It's not all fun and games, but it's something different. Are you in school for the summer?

denise said...

Don't you get it? Al Gore's a goofball because he talks about global warming and sensible foreign policy. All the real scientists that get their paychecks from energy companies say that global warming doesn't exist.

Naturally, I believe them, as opposed to a guy that's been advocating for this since before he became vice-president.

Shaine, I'm glad you made that admission, and I'm especially glad you recognize what a flippin' pander-bear John McCain has become.

I wasn't able to attend summer classes because I was going to pay out of pocket until the fall, and found out that I'll be a Washingtonian until July, which means I had to pay an extra 900+ for each class.

No thanks.

What's with the "niggas"? You're brown and from the rancho, not black and from da hood. Stop using racial epithets, girlie.

Get over it. I'm assuming you read the post, right? I've been on a Bone Thugs (& H.) kick and that was the intro that was playing at the time.

I will admit to getting the lyric wrong...it's "East 1999, my niggas."

(East, not It's)

Thanks for playing PC-Cop, though. It suits you. Also, thanks for reminding me that I'm brown and from the rancho, though I think what you meant to say was from "da rancho."

$900 is a big difference. I'll make an effort to resume classes in the Spring. I hope I still qualify as a resident. If not, I'll have to take courses at STC, another fine institution that is easier on the budget.

I'm not a PC Cop, girlie. I just don't understand why people like you throw out the word "nigga" like it doesn't have a negative connotation on my people. But I guess it's okay because you hide behind excuses like "I'm on a BTH thang," and that makes a'ight. Whatever, wetback.

denise said...

People like me? I must have completely forgotten all of the other times I used that word. Thanks for providing me with all those links proving the contrary.

Also, thanks for calling me wetback, though I'm a 5th generation Texan....but really, who checks those types of things, right?

Next time, use your real name, with a link to your email, Mr. PC-Pants. Also, don't take a fuckin' week to come up with something witty or edgy to post. Too little too late.

Anonymous posters on my blog hold about as much credibility as people who use "da" instead of "the" when they type.

La mera jefe,
