Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Is it messed up that most of our politicians have higher negative polling ratings than positive ratings? Or is even more messed up that we even have those polls to begin with? Don't think Thanos ever paid attention to polls... As an aside the political leadership on both sides of the aisle really don't have a lot of sex appeal. Nancy Pelosi? Mitch McConnell? Please. Tulsi Gabbard 2024...  As a reminder March 1st is officially recognized in New England as the date many men of all ages put away their long pants for the winter (seriously - go into any bar in New England and see the variety of guys showing off their pasty white calves)... I have decided that I can use the phrase "back when I was growing up" to refer to any event that happened before yesterday... Did you know the scientific term "quarks" (a type of subatomic particle) was taken from James Joyce's Finnegan's Wake... 


  1. If Tulsi Gabbard switched parties, I think she could do it. That is, if there is any difference between the two parties left.

  2. I could see Tulsi going the Independent third-party route but don't think she'd ever switch parties.

    Joe Manchin should switch parties.

  3. Mmmmmm, Tulsi Gabbard, PILF
