I am Unworthy………

I have been blogging for more than 12 years, and when I posted about the suspicious death of a Canadian cryptocurrency mogul, and subsequent efforts by shorted investors to exhume his body to confirm his death, I missed a most obvious and beautiful pun.

I have always claimed to be the worst writer on the internet, but today especially so, because I was not the one who came up with this:

Putting the Crypt in Crypto Currency

I am clearly unworthy.

My Apologies for Missing a Pun

Yesterday, I posted an article titled, “They’ve Got Tapes. They’ve Always Got Tapes“.

I should have titled it something like, “Rudy Impaled by Vlad Tapes,”*, since it involved an attempt to extort action by Ukrainian President  Volodymyr Zelensky.

*Oh for F%$#’s sake, it’s a play on the name of the Romanian Prince Vlad Țepeș, AKA Vlad the Impaler, AKA Vlad Drakul, the source of the Dracula story. Do I have to explain EVERYTHING?

It is Purim

So I may be blogging drunk, which means that I will likely be even less coherent than usual.

I know what you are asking yourself, “How could he get any LESS coherent?”

However, I promise that even if I drink so much that I cannot tell the difference between Mordecai and Haman, I will be able to tell the difference between Donald Trump and a fence post, with the latter being more honest, more intelligent, and more attractive.

I Will Be Beer Blogging This Election Night

Beer and pretzels, actually and I will be updating regularly.

I’ll start on the beer once I pick up Charlie from his election duties, and it will be beer and pretzels, because ……… What part of beer and pretzels don’t you UNDERSTAND?

While I will not be good to drive, I don’t expect to get truly hammered.

I deferred to my daughter on choice of beer, because she’s the only other one in the house who can drink beer (Sharon* is allergic to malt, and Charlie is under age.), which somewhat unfortunately is Natty Boh (National Bohemian).

The beer is actually a good metaphor for the establishment backed Democratic candidates this evening though, it is generic and uninspiring.

I’ll start live blogging around 7 or so, by which time we should start getting returns from the states with early poll closings.

*Love of my life, light of the cosmos, she who must be obeyed, my wife.

Important Nomenclature Announcement

For future discussions of Russian troll farms and the like, I will use the phrase, “Russian democracy promotion efforts.”

This is NOT because I approve of these efforts, but rather to show my opprobrium US “Democracy promotion” activities.

I approve of neither the Russians encouraging the “alt-right”, nor of US support for neo-Nazi skinheads in the Ukraine or of Jihadis in Syria.
