Welcome to the musings and notes of a Cadillac, Michigan based writer named Micah Holmquist, who is bothered by his own sarcasm.

Micah would appreciate it if you purchased items from Teaberry's Shop.
Vice President Richard Bruce Cheney finally settled the whole shooting controversy in his interview with Brit Hume of Fox News (February 15). We find out that Cheney prizes working "to get the story out as accurately as possible" (it is so nice to see him making improvements in that area of his life), that he was not more inebriated than many hunters when he shot that stupid lawyer and that he essentially believes he is to blame for the shooting.
Not said because I think everyone knows it is that Cheney believes he should be allowed to continue as Vice President because indirectly killing people has never disqualified anybody from high office before.
Will everyone please just shut up about Dick Cheney? The Vice President shooting someone is not, I repeat not, the funniest event in human history. I’m sure Rush Limbaugh has told at least seven funnier jokes in the last week alone.
...and I’m sure there’s a perfectly good reason for why everybody seemed to be upbeat about Whittington’s condition till the news of the Whittington's heart attack came forward. Yep there must be.
By far the most important thing that everybody seems to be missing is that Cheney had to shoot at the quail, or anything that could be quail, because he needed the dead birds in order to feed not just himself, but also the hard working men and women of the Secret Service who risk their lives every day he goes hunting to protect him. There was no time to spare. Supper had to be found stat. Given the dire situation, they probably should have finished Whittington off and put him on the fire.
Skip Bayless was on ESPN yesterday ranting about how the NFL thinks it can get away with bad officiating and doesn’t have to answer to anybody because of how big and powerful it is. Welcome to myworld, Skip.
This isn’t an aberration. Sports talk radio and the cable sports opinion shows right now are full of people complaining about referees. This is all fine and good, but these people seriously ought to throw in some jokes along the lines of how referees have even less credibility than the Bush Administration, if only to show some understanding that the world is bigger than spectator sports. Of course to do that might require a broader perspective than these men and that woman have.
On another note, I fully favor rioting in response to cartoons. Therejustaren’tthatmanythingsto riot about -apparently I can't even find a url to place on "riot"- so you have to seize any opportunity.
Sure it would be nice if they had the cool weapons, but you do the best with what you have.
I have not watched, listened to or read Bush's big State of the Union speech from yesterday, but I did like the signs that his supporters in attendance were waving. "You're a Good King, Mr. President" and "Thanks for the Dead Iraqis" were particularly good, especially since a dog was one of the people holding up the latter sign. But what really impressed me was the sign Cheney had. You could tell that it was hand made and came from the heart. "We'll Always have September the Eleventh" just says it all.
