Open Blog Weekend

I left for Vegas last night to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday party. His wife put me (and a few other old friends) up at the Encore. Pretty cool.

Sorry I couldn't say anything about quitting early last night, but my friend knows about the blog and he has been Mr. Detective about trying to find out if there was a surprise party planned for him. So I had to pretend nothing was going on.

At any rate, I usually say "Open blog, but I'll be around a little." This time I have to say "Open blog, and there is just really no chance at all I'll be around, unless I hit the Fortune Bonus in Pai Gau and want to hoot about it."

Anyone See Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann Last Night? Regarding the Fort Hood massacre, Matthews and Olbermann kept trying to sell post-traumatic stress syndrome. When it was learned this guy had never been in combat, they tried to sell the idea that he had PTSD from listening to other soldiers' accounts of PTSD.

When it was revealed that he was Muslim, and hated the war, and was always screaming about the war, and hated Obama because he thought Obama would end the war, they continued trying to sell some kind of PTSD by proxy.

Matthews was particularly sick-making as he sounded very sympathetic notes about this poor, poor abused man, forced to deploy to a war he didn't believe in. Even after the facts were revealed, he was still trying to excuse this and blame this man's mass-murder on Bush's foreign policy

I guess I don't blame them for avoiding jumping the gun and blaming it on Sudden Jihad Syndome. I guess I can understand the reluctance to engage in that kind of speculation. (On the other hand, they sure were willing to speculate along the lines of every other conceivable motive.)

But once the facts came in? And this fat butterheaded bastard is still trying to tell me that basically this is all my fault for starting a war that this poor man had to deploy to?

Inexcusable.
