Conflucian Cocktail Party: It’s the end of the world as we know it

And I feel fine.

The market dropped precipitously today.  I had my eye on Yahoo finance throughout the day and it was bouncing around a little.  The closing bell took my breath away.  All I could think was, “Can we have Hillary back now???  PLEASE!!!”

But, no, the DNC and the Obamabots are determined to force Obama on us.  I don’t think they even know why they;re doing it except that they simply must win at any cost and it doesn’t much matter to them if Obama is the most corrupt politician since, er, George W. Bush.  The only thing that matters is that all enemies are vanquished so they can dance at the edge of the abyss in triumpgh with the golden ring clutched in their slimy green hands.  “My precioussssss!”  Then they drag us over the edge with them.

It’s a shame that Hillary is committed to campaign for him.  He dissed her HOLC plan.  Fortunately, it was revived by someone else.  *Unfortunately*, that someone was from the other side.  How bizarre.  It gets weirder.  This weekend, Hillary is headed to the Scranton, PA area for some heavy duty canvassing.  Oddly enough, she will be met my her loyal supporters- er, now canvassing for John McCain?   Yep, Harriet Christian is going to be heading up a road trip to the area to give Democratic voters the heads up on Obama.  If you’re interested, contact HChristian@infnyc.com  (or was that net?) ASAP.  The bus will leave Manhattan at 9AM Saturday from 31St at 8the Avenue.  It’s a short walk from Penn Station.

It really is the end of the world as we know it.

Welcome to the Conflucian Cocktail party.  Take your shoes off and quit looking at your 401K.  There’s nothing you can do about it now.  And if you’re lucky, your fund managers will be able to snag some bahhhgains in the next couple of days.  To those of you closer to or at retirement, we’re here for you.  Pour out your troubles.

The bar is to the left of the door.  Say hello to Rico, our bartender with flair.  He will stay gainfully employed as long as we PUMAs are around.  Tonight his special drink is a Crash Landing.  We are also offering Causmos tonight for $10.  You can purchase one for a number of worthy causes.  For example, RealDemocratsUSA will be going on a tour of Ohio next weekend to rally the troops and let Democrats know that Obama is not what they think he is.  They will be using the money for gas, flyers, signs and other sundries  They need to raise $2000.  We also recommend visiting either the ActBlue for the Confluence page or The Fab Four page for Downticket Democrats who need your help.  Then there is HillPac where you can drop a $10 in he kitty for Hillary’s selections, some of whom are also our own. (just ignore the first guy)

Tonight’s entertainment is REM.  it’s a bit of a departure from our more sophisticated and jazzy selections.  But you can argue that the music doesn’t suit the times we are living in:

Leo-nard Bern-stein!

It’s bound to get a little crazy around here but let’s try to keep a civil tongue.  if you feel like the trigger words are getting the best of you, leave them with Florence, our lovely checkroom attendant.  The waiters will be circulating shortly with a selection of soups and hunks of bread and apples.  Eat them slowwwwly so they will last.  Please drink responsibly and tip your wait staff generously.
