    havong a bad day.  Try tuning into to the House "hearing" on the Secret Service and imagine being that poor woman.

    Not making excuses.  It was a major clusterf&ck.  actually more than one.  Still, how much fun can it be to be the whipping person of a bunch of ridiculous canting windbags who only care to the extent of the airtime it gives them.

    I will try (5.00 / 1) (#6)

    and beginning to get back to normal.

    Whether it's a work thing or a family thing, I am not a big fan of crisis - never been much of an adrenaline junkie! - or even of waiting for the other shoe to drop.  

    I laugh about how boring my life is, but in reality, it's not so much boring I go for, but calm.  Some people think they are the same, but they're definitely not.

    officially warned, in writing, by the AG of the U.S to not do that.  If there is more trouble and that is a factor there is gonna be some 'splainin to do.   And not to the feckless MO government.

    would only find support with the bigoted fearful farmers of Steve King's district. I was wrong.

    DSM Register Poll: Ernst 44% Braley 38%

    Evidently the majority of statewide poll takers support her despite (or maybe because of):

    • her claims of personal secret knowledge about where Iraq hid their vast stores of WMD;
    • her claims that hordes of brown terrorists are pouring over our borders;
    • her claims that Obama is going to take our guns Any Day Now;
    • her claims that Obamacare is ruining the farm economy - in 2008;
    • her claims that the UN is taking away Iowa farmland and moving farmers into FEMA camps; etc.

    When I saw that it was a DSM poll, (none / 0) (#10)

    all I could think was, well, of course - why wouldn't a poll sponsored by The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) produce these kinds of results?

    But maybe you meant the DMR (Des Moines Register) poll, not the DSM poll...

    Although it may be a distinction without a difference.
