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...
If I received a notification from someone I knew who was about to get married, and they’d registered with Holy Man’s campaign donation website in lieu of gifts…I’m pretty sure I’d conveniently lose track.
I would brave the shopping mall, fer sure. No, wait — the 99 cent superstore. They’d get something plastic and green…an ugly green. Used for cooking. With no gift receipt included.
Let your friends know how important this election is to you—register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It’s a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.
Every now & then The First Narcissist does something that I have to read & re-read & re-check three or more times, to make sure it isn’t a joke…this is one of those times.
Doesn’t this just highlight the problem of Obama fans: Lack of awareness of the nature of time. Let’s see now: If I had older relatives who were celebrating some amazing “hope we make it that long” anniversary, that would be like, maybe, the 70th, 75th, maybe eightieth one…would I then expect the blushing bride to say “I still remember the day we tied the knot, we registered for our gifts at the Re-Elect Hoover in 1932 website.” Or, if the registration was with the winner…ya know, that doesn’t make it any less pathetic. Campaigns are temporary things. That’s why the signs are all made out of cardboard and electrons and so forth…
Feeling bad for the participants & guests involved in the wedding ceremony for which such a thing might be appropriate. Such a matrimonial union would, also, be a temporary thing made of plastic & cardboard! Built to fall apart. Sad, really, since I’ve seen marriages like this…been in one, matter of fact. Maybe that’s just the way it’s supposed to work on Planet Obama-Fan.
In fact, that’s what we’ve been seeing, is it not? Consequences of decisions made — there aren’t any, really, they’re just limited to how it makes you feel, what messages you have communicated about how much you adore His Eminence. So I wonder how many takers they get? It’s a registration, isn’t it? Does that become public knowledge? Or can we at least know the number?
I’m genuinely curious. And you know, I wouldn’t be all that surprised if, when it’s all said & done, the Obama team chalks this one up as a cool idea and a huge win. Wouldn’t put it past ‘em.
But they’re really getting eaten alive in the comments. Good to see.
