Wordy Wednesday VI

This morning, noticing that Bock the Robber had posted an entry titled McCain and Palin — The Certainty of the Know-Nothings, expecting another of his glorious rants I moved over and ... got moved. Why? Read his words, watch the video, and you will know.

Visiting Ardent, you will come to know why I did wholeheartedly laugh about ... the Angel of Death. Enjoy! :)

I had just started to understand what Woody Allen had been refering to when stating: 'I am not frightened of death. I just don't want to be there when it happens', when a poem by Simin Bebhahani let my laughter die.

Well, and thanks to Internation Musing I came to read a nice 'Rolling Stones'-article not just about Sarah Palin.
Indeed: 'The scariest thing about John McCain's running mate isn't how unqualified she is - it's what her candidacy says about America'.

Wherewith this post's circle has come full. :)

The peace of the night.


  1. A tiny round-up of interesting links which do indeed lead us in a kind of circle from sadness to black humour back to sadness and on to fear.

  2. Thank you for the link Sean. I am also very glad that you liked the story.

  3. Thanks for linking Sean..)
    A more interesting story about John McCain in Rolling Stone:

    Amazing story: were are heading towards WW3 with a McCain as Pr.

  4. jmb,
    four such good postings on a Thursday were worth a Wordy Wednesday. Glad you liked what your read.

    have been telling the story at least a dozen times, since. Soon there will noone in this village who would not have heard it. :)

    you are welcome. Great posting these days.
    Thanks for the link to Jenny White.

    Yeah, they are a great couple, McCain & Pain.

    No typo above. Who'd care about an 'l' like liars? :)


  5. Glad you enjoued the simin bebhahani poem but possibly enjoy is not le mot juste!

  6. Jams,
    misunderstanding? I wrote '[...] a poem by Simin Bebhahani let my laughter die.' - i.e. the laughter after after I had read and enjoyed Ardent's story.
