Blog on the Run: Reloaded

Both the funniest and the saddest question I have heard in a long time …

… is posed by Doug Harlan J at Balloon Juice:

My all time favorite song is “Sweet Thing” by Rufus. Is there any way someone who is both white and male could pull that off at karaoke, possibly with back-up help? I have dreams where I do this and they seem real to me.

Dude. No. Just … no.

But in fairness, let us not know Doug only by his musical delusions:

I believe that we are, to no small extent, ruled by ignorant sociopaths who care far more about impressing each other with their faux seriousness than about whether middle-class Americans live or die.

Because that is about as pithy and accurate an observation of American governance in the second decade of the 21st century as it is possible to find anywhere.
