Afternoon Silliness and a reminder

Up until today, I thought I had the most recessive genes on the planet.  Neither of my kids looks like me.  I frequently wondered who the real mother was.  But lately, Brook’s sense of humor has started to take on some familiar features.  Like, she *gets* Monty Python.  And she is learning how to snark.  Hmmm, maybe she’s related after all.  Today, I have confirmation.  She introduced me to Jonathan Coulton.  Yep, she’s mine alright.

Speaking of humor. the DNC has been trying to define us, with predictably humorous results.  Last week, Don Fowler and Alice Fermond called us “fatiguing and irritating”.  A few days ago, and ABC News affiliate referred to us as militants.  So, we’ve been trying to polish our army boots to make a good impression.  And on Friday, Howard Dean called us “low class” for exercising our first amendment rights.  So, SM77 got out her handy-dany gimp application and created a composite of a PUMA based on these descriptions: a mullet headed Che Guevara type with ADHD.   Great job, SM.  I like the way you have placed the PUMA in its natural habitat.

Do you recognize this person?

Finally, Don’t forget that Lanny Davis will be a guest on NO WE WON’T blogtalkradio with Sheri Tag and Will Bower tonight at 8:00 EST.  That’s like NOW!!!
