Cold, cold, cold, Part II

Last week, I blogged briefly about how cold I am all the time now that I’ve (finally) substituted muscle for some of the post-baby weight that was insulating me.  I’m also cold because I keep my house at 65 or below.  That’s not because I’m green crazy — you know I’m not — but because heating is expensive.

For that reason, it’s all the more galling to read about Obama’s despicable, but entirely unsurprising (given that he is, in his own mind, the Messiah) hypocrisy.  What a grotesque personality he is proving to be (although that’s again unsurprising to me, since I saw it coming a long time ago and from far away).

    Well, Obama is quickly going to become a sort of modern IQ test: How long does it take for someone to see past the nancy boy affectations to the real empty suit?

    Speaking of cold – here in Kentucky we have just come out of a terrible ice storm. It’s going to be weeks before the power is restored in some areas and it is very, very cold. This is a state catastrophe and there are more people without power than ever before. Thank God the area where I live wasn’t too badly hit.

    This ice storm happened on Obama’s watch. So were is FEMA? Does Obama really hate the people from the south? Does he hate the rural poor? It would seem so.

    That’s probably how the press would be spinning this story if Bush was still president.

    Charles – “Well, Obama is quickly going to become a sort of modern IQ test: How long does it take for someone to see past the nancy boy affectations to the real empty suit?”

    I’m from Illinois and I know the answer to that one: a long, long time.

    Ellen, the answer is: blame Climate Change, blame Bush.

    Off topic, but are you keeping up with the saga of the nuclear-free library?

    This is the golden age of hypocrisy. The Victorians were mere amateurs.

    You would have thought that he would have made a big point about keeping the White House somewhere south of 72 given what he said on the campaign trail.

    I can’t figure out if he and his folks believe that most Americans think it is ok for them to say one thing and do another or whether they think we are so stupid and simple that we forgot what he said.

    It is taking every single bit of self-restraint I have not to e-mail this type of stuff to my friends who voted for this charlatan.

    You’re almost as bad as Neo.

    Deana, they are perfectly fine with the Ken Lay and Jeff Skeller version of leadership. Do as I say and buy more Enron stock, not do as I am doing (which is selling Enron stock).

    We lived in Manassas, Va for several years. Our house was all electric. We soon came to realize that it was guaranteed that you’d have an ice storm at least once a year. Maybe in the fall, or maybe in the spring, but sometime. And of course, there were going to be power outages as the branches broke and brought down power lines, and as ice on the roads caused accidents that took out power poles and other items necessary for electric transmission. Fortunately we had bought a travel trailer, and it had a gas tank for cooking…that’s how I cooked when the power went out. We also bought a wood stove after the first year.

    I’ll never have an all electric house again…and if I lived in a climate where there was annual snowfall, I’d consider a wood stove a necessity – even if it only got cranked up 3 days a year! Besides, with all the downed trees, we were also never short of firewood…!

    (We also had an uphill septic field – which I’ll never have again…but that’s a different issue!)
