Alarming News: I like Morgan Freeberg. A lot.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: We were following a trackback and thinking "hmmm... this is a bloody excellent post!", and then we realized that it was just part III of, well, three...Damn. I wish I'd written those.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: ...I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is an intriguing guy...[he] asks great questions and answers others with style, flair, reason and wit. On the blogroll he goes. Make him a part of your regular blogospheric reading. I certainly will.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is brilliant.
Common Sense Junction: Misha @ Anti-Idiotarian never ceases to amaze me. He keeps finding other good blogs. I went over to A.I. this morning for my daily Misha fix and he had found this guy named Morgan Freeberg in Fair Oaks, California, that has a blog, House of Eratosthenes. Freeberg says its "The Blog That Nobody Reads" but it may now become the blog that everybody reads.
Jaded Haven: Good God, Morgan, you cover a topic from front to back with a screwy thoroughness I find mind boggling. I'm in awe of your thought proccesses, my friend, you're an exceptional talent. You start by throwing in the kitchen sink, tie in someone's syphilitic uncle, bend around a rip tide of brilliance and bring it all home in a neat, diamond dripping package of an exceptionally readable moment of damn fine wordsmithing. I love reading you.
Mein Blogovault: Make "the Blog that No One Reads" one of your daily reads.
Philmon: When Morgan meanders, stick with him - he's got a point and it'll be worth it in the end. He's not a hit-and-run snarky quip kind of guy. The pieces all fall into place like tumblers in a lock and bang! He's opened a cognative door for you.
Rightlinx: Morgan at House of Eratosthenes is one of the best writers out there. I read him nearly every day because he manages to provide an interesting perspective, even though I don't always agree.
Poetic Justice: Cletus! Ah gots a laiv one fer yew...
This is brown, all right. Soft & brown.
Meg Whitman’s handling of housekeeper scandal and record-breaking spending have cost her support among women, Latinos and independents.
So not only will we have a governor with a proven track record of making things worse, he’ll owe his election to Gloria Allred. Which has to mean we’ll be privileged to hear a great deal more from her.
But yeah, Meg Whitman is clearly lacking in moral character or something…seeing as how she got fooled when someone else falsified documents and showed them to her.
Brown called Whitman a whore. California women are about to punch the chad for him because Gloria Allred drummed up a phony scandal.
They — the ones who fit the description, anyway — owe the rest of us a big apology. Or will. But we’re still waiting for one from the Obama voters, so what the hell.
Update: You know how I would characterize California; it is chock full of people who are very touchy about how their identities are associated. We have a lot of people who want to be associated with whatever is fashionable. With some people it’s Depeche Mode, with others it’s Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Or Jersey Shore. It’s a generational thing, what they’re going to latch onto as their bauble. Many want to be fuzzy and fashionable, few have any desire to be very deep. They’re afraid of alienating someone.
Very few people want to be associated with a political position, be it left or right. When it comes to politics, just about everyone wants to be mushy, agnostic, centrist, moderate.
But among those, most just want the democrat to win. ALL of the time. They can’t or won’t explain why. Just want the democrat to win.
When conservatives tell each other not to get cocky in 2010, they’re talking about my state. Whatever. Just get out there, do your voting, and there you’ve been as un-cocky as anyone could expect. But don’t expect any major turnarounds here.
