Good Evening, Kittens.
Everyone home from work and have martini in hand? Good.
This morning, as I was taking my shower, I was thinking about the American Car Company Bailout. And, I thought, "What good is it to just throw money at the car companies? They need to adapt and improvise. They don't need a government handout."
And, then it hit me like a ton of exfoliating soap (ow! scratchy!), there should be some sort of Car Company New Deal! For example, the current lame duck Congress or President Obama (after January), should launch a program which directs the Big Three to bid on replacing the entire Post Office Fleet with hybrids. Or something like that. Encourage green jobs! Award the contract to the car company with the best EnviroPlan! And do similar things with other government fleets.
Ba-Da-Bing! Ba-Da-Boom! Detroit Car Crisis Solved ... eventually.
Of course, I got out of the shower, got dressed, and booted up the computer. My homepage is the WashingtonPost.com. And what did I see over in the far left corner under editorials?
Some FUCKER had written an editorial titled something along the lines of "Obama Should Be Less Like Lincoln, More Like FDR."*
And. *fizzle* There went my blogpost. *sigh*
Life is so hard.
Why can't I ever have an original idea?
Martinis. They are good.
*No, I didn't read it. And, no, I'm not going to link to it. I'm too disheartened.
