'A person can be even evil but still retain the sense of honor   but here ( in the West,- MS) we have a lot of honest people doing   dishonorable things just from the goodness of their hearts.'

It is really odd that Dostoevsky is the favorite writer of   Laura Bush. At least that's what she claimed.

6. Many of my fellow --progressives  write long and boring  diatribes about why they will have   to vote for Obama despite his vices, etc. Long, long, long,looooong self-explanations; even Prince Hamlet would fall asleep.

The ones who will vote  for Romney  do not seem to be in such self- doubt. It seems odd.

7. Recently Mr. Romney said at some special dinner that he did not care for about 0.5 of the US population. The media on both sides  howled  with pleasure and   discussed that in detail, much more than Hurricane Sandy. One   little caveat: there was absolutely no discussion   (in the open, I mean) on who were those people Mitt  gave his oath to at that dinner and why did he have to do that. None of those people were interviewed and none were even   mentioned on TV (Mother Jones published the names but   that was all). That was scarcely odd because our media eats sh*t on a regular basis.

8. The debates this year were so substance- less that substance was not even discussed.   The two guys should not talk at all: they instead should   use only gestures like it was done at some debates in Middle Ages. That was odd that what we saw was still called 'debates'.

9.Show me the money! Our GOP folks claim that private charity  is much more efficient than any government service. I don't notice a pile of gold    delivered   to the victims of Sandy from the generous private donors.     Do you? Odd.

10.   Most of our   young people consider   Comedy Central a real news cast. That's scarcely odd   because  'in the land of the blind the one- eyed person is a King'.

I would like to   end  my little dance macabre  with another   verse   from the   genius Lewis Carroll.

'The Lion and the Unicorn were fighting for the crown:
The Lion beat the Unicorn all round the town.
Some gave them white bread, some gave them brown:
Some gave them plum-cake and drummed them out of town.'


How relevant! And how odd.
