Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Now get back to being truculent

It's another new year. Time just flies by when you're watching the world go to hell in a handbasket!

Considering how spectacularly I failed at keeping any of last year's resolutions, I thought I would make a few new ones to not keep in 2007.

Be constantly of good cheer and gentle demeanor
This would actually be quite easy to do if I could suffer fools gladly, but I can't, so there's no chance whatever of keeping this one.
Foreswear cynicism
Yeah, right!
Bring about truth, justice, and the American way
Seeing as how GWB has spent six years making a mockery of this, it would be a prodigious accomplishment, indeed
Complete last year's resolutions
Does the term "snowball's chance" ring a bell?

And while I'm at it, a few predictions may be in order.

Cable news will discover another missing young blonde woman to obsess over
Or, failing that, bruit "startling new developments" in the Lacy Peterson murder case
OJ will continue his search for "the real killer"
Make that the real killer who might have killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman if they hadn't already been killed by OJ
George W Bush will choke every time he is reminded that he called Gerald Ford a "man of complete integrity who led our country with common sense and kind instincts" — all the things that GWB is not and has not
Awkward, isn't it, that Ford's remarks about the Iraq war were published after W made his comment?
Hillary will announce she is going to run for President
This will, of course, be treated a "breaking news" on CNN

How can I go wrong?
