Trying to Update and Failing

Today’s question is this: what does a political blogger do when the news is redundant? I have so far gone the not updating route in anticipation of some breaking news story to explode on the news scene, but so far there has been no luck. Instead the best I have is Bush claiming to never have said “stay the course” in Iraq which is such an obvious lie that there is no point in even dissecting it.

In summary I got nothing but a decrepitly slow work computer that is printing the letters I type at the same speed a learning disabled child would print at. I cannot even type right now because this is annoying the hell out of me. I am typing sentences, getting up to use the bathroom and returning to see the last few letters appear on my screen. I tried to update, but will have to try harder when I get home. I am preparing a story on Jack Thompson for later, so be on the lookout for that.

Where is that damn cliff already? Not for me so much as for tossing this POS PC off.

You need to throw a hissy fit over that Stone Age computer! Your boss might even be persuaded to go top of the line system if you explain how much more work you could get done with a decent machine. Sight yourself a good cliff and then when you get a new computer, throw that old clunker over the side.

It's true, there really is nothing much in the news. I'm sure that does make it hard for the politically inclined people.

I was in the VA office the other day and they are still using dot matrix printers and old commodore 64s....That is not an exageration......A hissy fit is in order, if your job is safe....

It is safe, but the boss incharge of that is on vacation for two weeks. Going to be a very long two weeks.
