Another Round of Absurdity

After reading Albert Camus' essay "The Myth of Sisyphus" last night, I thought it rather fitting to link to absurdity in the news.
  • The Village Idiot says Idahoans should shout at their representatives: "Thanks, But No Thanks!" We don't want your stinkin' money... Right.
  • Congressman Minnick said WHAT?!
  • Senator Crapo is the spinmaster, not Senator Risch? Yikes.
  • Fairness is coming! Fairness is coming! Yes, another op-ed about the potential return of the Fairness Doctrine.
  • Too much of the same on the editorial page? Welcome to the world of red states, Mr. Sullivan.
  • Think you're anonymous in Texas? Think again.

Even though my fellow blogger Bubblehead (who is in my thoughts this week as he undergoes surgery for the stomach cancer he's going to beat the hell out of) says when all else fails to revel in the absurdity of it all, this is a bunch of absurdity I just can't revel in. In fact, this kind of absurdity makes me crazy!
