Well, RedState, it’s The Day After… one long national nightmare is over, and now we must brace ourselves to see if rewarding Giant Douche for not being Turd Sandwich works out to be Worst Case Scenario or somewhere short of it.
On the upside, at least we still have the Watercooler, RedState’s daily Open Thread, to commiserate and drown our sorrows. Today, we’ve got…
*If anybody busts out singing Gordon Lightfoot out there, I *will* come hunt you down and shove my dirty sweat-socks down your maw…
Today’s Birthdays: United States Marine Corps, 1775 (Happy Birthday, Jarheads!); actress-inventor Hedy Lamarr, 1914; original “Incredible Hulk” Lou Ferrigno, 1951;
Holidays Around the World: It’s World Freedom Day here, Azerbaijan celebrates National Flag Day, Cambodia has their Independence Day, and Germany, Austria and Switzerland observe Inventors’ Day. Go build something!

Of course the Watercooler is as always an open thread, but I just thought I should toss a few questions out to see what y’all think on ’em… I’ll toss my own up in Comments later, after I’m back from fighting with buses and the Morning Mile.
I also invited a few of my foreign correspondents to each submit up to five questions they’ve been dying to ask Americans this year but were afraid to… as of press time, only my gal had gotten back to me with a reply so maybe if any of the others respond this might become a recurring feature every once in a while. Bearing in mind that I imposed a condition that I’d only pass along serious questions and not sarcasm, here we go…
I’ll ask her later how she feels about our country’s Douchebag Infestation threatening to invade her homeland later after her workday’s done, and try to toss the response up in Comments tonight.
These days, if a Democrat says you don’t have a legitimate reason to have something… that’s a legitimate reason to have three of them.–Northwest Firearms forum member “Stomper”
As always, the Watercooler is an Open Thread. Hope y’all found something you liked, and now the floor is yours to Sound Off from.
