I don't wholly agree, but ...

Greg Mankiw remembers a conservative blogger's observation:
Jane's Law:
The devotees of the party in power are smug and arrogant. The devotees of the party out of power are insane.

Originally from QandO. (If you click through far enough, you'll find that "Jane's Law" is at least partly inspired by right-wing derangement during the Clinton years.)

This is part of why I've stopped reading RedState in the last few months, as some of their senior editors appear to getting terribly close to stepping off the spittle-flecked edge. (Other reasons include their shift to focus on Activism!, as I have no great interest in being a professional agitator, however benign. The major reason their are so man full-time activists on the left seems, to me, to be a reflection of the appeal that the left's ideas have to people that have never had a real job.)

Some of the other observations over at the (three-year-old) QandO post seem reasonable to me, as well.

Also on politics: I hear we have a new President. Well, I hope he has a successful presidency, but it must be understood I don't hope he succeeds on anything or everything he attempts in office.

Stupid Gun Tricks

1. A chainSAW
2. Predator-style laser sight No sign of this on the manufacturer's website, so it may be discontinued.

That's all I got at the moment.

I haven't been able to finish any of these Pokémon games since I picked up something to play them on. It's kind of shameful, and I don't really know if the problem is an inability to save state or the general lack of critters I like. I'm 75% certain it's the latter.

Anyway, while picked up a copy of Pokémon Pearl ages ago, I really haven't touched it in about as long. However, I was poking around the TV Tropes wiki again (I CAN STOP WHENEVER I WANT) over the weekend, and happened upon an individual claiming that the Pokémon games were the only ones they allowed themselves to cheat at.

I am not nearly so virtuous, but, apparently, not quite so quick on the uptake, either. Seeing the genesis of a brilliant waste of perfectly good money, I hied myself to Best Buy for an Action Replay DS and a copy of Pokémon Diamond. So far, it's been nice, being able to cart around all three starting critters, and their equivalents from the Gold/Silver games. Not sure it'll hold my interest, but I figure it's worth a shot. Having basically infinite amounts of dosh is kinda handy, too.

(I grabbed yet another cartridge on the off chance that I might want to play against, say, Der Pikafoop at some point. It seemed unsporting to do otherwise.)

I may need to mine my RSS aggregator for shared items, as I've been doing a fair amount of that lately.
