A running rant about bad television, crappy products, horrible service, mindless politics, corporate and government ineptitude, moronic media, marketing overload, public idiocy, stupid entertainment, etc. Here's what's annoying me today:

Christy, you're lying now

Now, I am an artist, but you don't have to be an artist to realize that the cartoonist who did the drawings for Christy Mihos' very funny Heads up Their Asses commercial, penned a pretty good likeness of Kerry Healey. From the hairstyle, to the stance, to the style of dress, it is spot on. Yet when he was questioned about the likeness in an NECN interview, Mihos, with a straight face, claimed that any likeness was purely coincidental, then uttered this exact quote: "The woman that did the animation wouldn't know the difference between Kerry Healey and Deval Patrick." Come on Christy! How dumb do you think we is. The funny thing is, even Kerry Healey is publicly buying his denial.

Now, I have nothing against Christy. A slightly off-kilter independent candidate makes an otherwise boring campaign fun. Just remember Ross Perot. And as far as negative campaign ads go, this is amongst the best ever. But give us a break. It's pretty obvious who this was targeting. Maybe the animator didn't know the difference between Kerry and Deval — until you stuck a photo in front of her, and said "draw the woman to look just like this!"

Christie is an entertaining candidate but I think he is only in it to shut down Healey's chance of becoming governor. The last thing we need is Deval Patrick in this state! Socialism will run rampant and I will head to New Hampshire!

Yeah, Romney has done just a terrific job, hasn't he. He's been running for President from the day he was sworn in. Do you pay any attention to what's happening to your local schools? Why do you think schools are cutting sports and music, and just about everything else & still not able to balance their budgets. It's because of the Republican's shell game. Slash aid to cities and towns, so you can say you cut taxes & then let the towns deal with the consequences. Then hide little taxes and fees anywhere you can to make up the difference.

I've voted for Republican governors for the past 16 years. I'm done with it. Democrats suck too, but less than the alternative. I'm back in the fold.

Stop listening to Fox News & Michial Graham & move to New Hampshire.

Yes, I do pay attention. Wilmington has not cut anything out of the schools and the MCATs scores are doing great. Our town has not overidden Prop 21/2 and has no need to in the near future. What ever happened to responsible town government?! Oh right, they got dependent on state aid and still overspent so they overide prop 2 1/2. The problem is special interest groups come in and try to ram spending for things like new libraries and schools because the next town over got one when they are not needed. That happened here with a $14million library proposal when there is nothing wrong with the present one other than it's old. The town told them to go fuck themselves.

I'm not a huge fan of Romney but the republicans have balanced things here at least a little. With Deval we'll be paying for all sorts of neolib stuff for illegals, criminals and reverse prejudice because it's PC. NH is looking better and better.

Well go move there, and I'll have a place to stay closer to the mountains.
