Curioser and Curioser

Floods are ravaging Manila. The mid-western United States continues to suffer through the worst drought in decades as the hottest July ever has now been recorded. Civil war rages on in Syria with little or no hope of easy resolution. A fire at a Chevron refinery in Richmond, California sends hundreds to local hospitals and pushes the price of a gallon of gas ever-upward. Where is the good news?
“I think the country needs a boost,” Clint Eastwood told reporters last week. That boost apparently comes in the form of Mitterson "Flopsy" Romney III. “Now more than ever do we need Governor Romney. I’m going to be voting for him,” Eastwood told Romney supporters Friday night.
“He just made my day,” Mitterson said. “What a guy.”
Hey. Wait a second. Where's the good news? I thought Dirty Harry was all about the Chrysler ad, and he was even ticking off Karl Rove.That was way back in February. Things change. Currently, the state of presidential politics seems to be centered on a six billion dollar contest to see who can stick their tongue out at the other farther. 
No wonder we're looking so hard for intelligent life on other planets. I wish I could ride along with Curiosity for a few months, at least until things settle down here on Earth a little bit. Or at lest until baseball season's over. Right, Clint?

And what would Mitt n' Paul do for all those floods and fires (aggravated by something they do not believe in)? Drill, baby, drill?
