Still not over it

not by a long shot

so anyway, I actually spoke with my Brother in Blog on Friday. "Are you over it yet?" I asked. We shared a few pained chuckles over the Evil Party coming back to power; but niether of us is "over it".

Personally, lately I've been checking ammo prices, in advance of a major purchase. I've also been thinking about getting one of these. I need to find some semi-valid "work" reason to go to Dayton, Ohio, and soon.
There's something to be said about having a rifle that shoots pistol ammunition. The last time I got all worked up about a handgun caliber rifle, it was the Isreali-made Timberwolf, a pump action carbine chambered in .357 Magnum. Getting worked up was tempered by the fact that it cost roughly $450, if memory serves. Still, a .357 rifle.....that would kick serious ass; a 9mm not so much. But from a pracitcallity standpoint; common ammo is always a bonus-plus. And for under $200.....
The prospect of pump action is still way cool, though. Rack it, baby. Talk about a sound that makes bad guys wet their pants.....but I digress.
But that's not why I popped in tonight. No, I had humor on my mind when I lit up the Blogger interface, specifically this post from Iowahawk. Comedy Gold, it is. Do go read. H/T to John Hawkins' Conservative Grapevine, who's link you can find you own bad self. Late, tired, etc.

Almost Reagan-esque

I should re-take the survey when I'm sober
so anyway, according to Frank J. over at IMAO, there's a political quiz-thingy going on. I shant add the results here, because every time I cut-n-paste the script results from some stoopid poll here at SupplySidePolitics it screws up the template for weeks.
I scored a 38 out of a possible 40. I expected my numbers to be in the high-60's. It could just be the vodka talking (which of course would all be Ace's and/or Steven Green's fault; it's a long story).
After all, haven't you ever been mellow?
Do go take the test your own bad self and post your results in the comments. The bestest entry gets one of those fakey interwebtubes prizes; hand delivered by my brother-in-blog.
And he'll wax your car while he's there. Talk about a Win-Win situation.....
