Funny David Sedaris piece

Funny David Sedaris piece on the election.

I had an unwilling discussion with a coworker who is also working part time for our local Republican candidate for Congress. (Our current representative is retiring, so it's an open seat.) There are the usual claims and counterclaims-you're a tax and spender, you're a crook. Et Cetera, Et Cetera. I really don't have much opinion about the race. I'll probably pull the letter for the Democrat, but we'll see. They're both local politicians, so we don't have much to go on in terms of their abilities. My coworker was pretty insistent that Obama is a socialist. I tried not to get into it with him, but in 2008, that's kind of like calling someone a Whig.

The World Series is tonight. I think the Rays are deeper, and better, and will win in 6. If the Phillies don't win tonight, they are in deep trouble, because Hamels is the only pitching matchup that they win hands down. As Bill Simmons said on his podcast, I will pull for Philadelphia, if only for public safety reasons.


  1. ...And the Phils win. I'm only a Phillies fan by location- I'm not a BIG fan of Baseball *Ducks to avoid punch*. I'm a Dallas fan for Football.

    Philly fans are the worst.

  2. Indeed. As I said, I kind of want Philadelphia to win just so the citizens of the Delaware Valley will be a little less pissy.
