Today, This Blog Has A Motif

Tag Crowd is back from "fluffing their clouds" (site maintenance). That's the good news o'the day. The not-so-good news is that The Deadline Poet is back with more snark about Governor BigBoy (Chris Christie, R-NJ); will the next poem feature Bad Vlad, the Russian descamisado? It would seem that The Deadline Poet is in a loop with Governor BigBoy and Bad Vlad. It's like having a two-key piano. Perhaps a "Simple 4-Line" rhyme scheme is just right for this blog. If this is (fair & balanced) blogging with faint praise, so be it.

Inquiry Is Said to Clear Christie, but That’s His Lawyers’ Verdict.
New York Times headline

His lawyers did a thorough job.
The governor has been absolved.
They’d interviewed all Christie aides,
Except, of course, the ones involved. Ω
