Stupor Tuesday

The air hereabouts is of a very low quality indeed today.

Jaysis. As if the banjaxed ankle weren’t annoying enough, now the trees are conducting biological warfare against my tender sinuses.

I’ve actually been compelled to take drugs, and not the interesting kind, either. Blaugh, etc.

Last night I slept mostly not at all, and between that and the drugs I’m having trouble staying focused on all the Super Tuesday doings, beyond noting that the Anybody But Bernie Caucus is forming up right smart.

Crucifixion? Good. Out of the door, line on the left, one cross each. Next?

    Juniper and mulberry, especially mulberry, are severe allergens. Luckily, my favorite poison is ragweed. So spring is not too bad for me. My sympathies Patrick. Time to limber up the old snot pot. Buy some non-iodized salt and distilled water and start flushing those bad boys out every stinkin’ day.

      In other medical news, the North American Handmade Bicycle Show has been postponed due to the coronavirus, and Sea Otter plans “a final decision on our position within a couple of days.”

      I asked a leading industry figure, “Why does God hate the bicycle industry?”

      He sez to me he sez, “We need to put a tariff on Chinese viruses.”

    Maybe this will cheer you up. There are talented and smart young folks out there. So, am just going to vote the way Andy and Liz tell me to.

    As soon as the polls closed the AP called VA for Biden. Hell, why not another oligarch? It worked so well last time.

      It’s sort of like a really shitty Christmas where your choices are socks, underwear, or another one of those ugly-ass sweaters from Grandma that got you beat up last year.

    Here comes the election for Dems

    It’s allergy season just when you need to get good rest! Hope the meds work for you. Decades ago people moved to the Southwest to avoid seasonal allergens, humidity and pollution. A neighbor family moved for that reason. I learned here about the seasonal allergens that are common now due to non-native plantings.

    I’m very fortunate – got all the allergy stuff out-of-the-way as a child I guess, going through the various tests so the witch-doctors could come up with some custom-made shots I would get from a nurse who lived just a few doors down. Now all I have is the sneezes when cycling past newly mowed lawns or being in a closed room with a cat, but it passes pretty quickly.
    I hope my luck continues and I can avoid Covid-19 as well. I hope you all can too as the virus and related insanity take over the USA next. The wife’s study-abroad program has been shut down, so the kids are off to where the virus is just getting going…CYA is the order of the day I guess?

    Bloomberg just parachuted out.

    • Larry T. atCycleItalia Says:

      Now, as someone elsewhere quipped, “Bloomberg needs to aim his money-howitzer at Trump” instead of Bernie. Think of a bazzillion TV spots with Donnie bellowing “I alone can fix it” over scenes and graphics of all things he’s not fixed, but f–ked up, promises made but reneged on, foreign leaders laughing at him at Davos, the old-fart motoring around on the “rascal” scooter at the G7 in Sicily while the other bigwigs walked, etc. etc.. They could fill a 30 minute informercial with this stuff!
      OTOH I think Warren should drop out and support Bernie despite what Caligula tweets and just make it a two-man old-fart race for the Donk nomination. She’d make a great veep and prez when/if either of these old codgers kicks the bucket once elected.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      As Chazbo Pierce notes, Bloomberg may have accomplished his main goal by torpedoing Senator Professor Warren; he called Moneybags “the primary roadblock in Elizabeth Warren’s attempts at viability in several states. …” So why not toddle off? Maybe he’ll visit American Samoa. I hear they love him down there.

      • Larry T. atCycleItalia Says:

        Can’t see how Don the Con torpedoed Warren, but I no longer read Pierce so I could be missing something. I think love numbers come from misogyny + trying to speak intelligently instead of using lowbrow catchphrases. Hillary had the same problem – she slaughtered Don the Con in every debate but you know what my wife says……..

      Any Dem in a storm. The Professor is always right. Look at Alabama.
