The Great Amusing Bunni Needs Help

Posted by KingShamus on November 13, 2012

Here’s Bob Belvedere:

When you need a smile, when things are getting you down, you can always head over to Bunni’s blog for some easing of your worried mind.

Now, it’s Bunni whose mind needs easing…

I’m not going to sugarcoat this: Bunni has inoperable, terminal liver cancer that has metastasized and has been given but a few more months to live.

As she put it in an e-mail to Zilla:

So, I’m terminal. There are so many tumors in my abdomen, and the liver is enlarged very much, they can’t operate, the tumors and blood vessels are too much and too close, they can’t do chemo, or NOTHING, so I just will be seeing palliative care Dr.’s for medicine adjustments to help with the pain, and then just get my affairs in order and wait to die.

Zilla, God Bless Her, has been speaking with Bunni and convinced her to go public about her situation.

As I said over at Bob’s place:  Damn you, cancer.

There was a while there when I lost track of Bunni.  She took a forced hiatus from from blogging (see Zilla’s post for more details), then I got bombarded with real-life work and we didn’t really reconnect.  That’s my fault, and one of the reasons I kinda suck at teh internetz.

Back to the business at hand.

It is said that blogging brings out a writer’s true nature.  Bunni’s blog is a sugar rush of sunny cheer.  All she wants to do is bombard you with laughs and hope.  Conservative writing can often mean reading heaping doses of dour pessimism, but Bunni is always ready to lift your spirits.

Bunni is facing tough times.  She could really use her bloggers-in-arms to help shoulder some of the burden.  If you have the means, please consider donating to her medical treatment fund.

Positive thoughts and humble prayers are in order as well.

God bless the Bunni.

No Mr. Romney, Barack Obama is still not a nice guy

Posted by KingShamus on November 13, 2012

In retrospect, what annoyed me the most about Team Romney’s campaign against Obama wasn’t the crappy voter turnout machinery or the listless September campaign or the anything else.

What has rankled me for a while is this piece of rhetoric from the Mittens Campaign:

“Obama is a nice guy, but he’s in over his head.”

I really don’t know why Romney decided to go this route.

Before you even start, don’t give me the “Mitt is just too decent to be mean” defense.  I’m not saying that Romney is a bad dude.  Romney is a good man, especially if judged by the standards of American Politician Behavior Circa Early 21st Century.

But let’s not get weepy and sentimental about the guy simply because he just took a good old-fashioned passionate ass-whoopin’.  Romney had no problem slamming his primary opponents.  None of them were ‘good folks’.  Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain and Rick Santorum all felt the heat from Romney’s air and ground game.  Every one of Mitt’s serious competitors got swamped by negative campaigning.

On the other hand, President Obama didn’t get the same kind of treatment from the Romney camp.  Obambi was never demonized.  He was always just ‘wrong’.

Now, it’s nice that Mitt was willing to call Obama mistaken about the issues of the day.  At least Romney was good enough to help us out on that.

Typical Voter: ‘Wait, Obama’s policies are not cool? Oh okay  Thanks for the heads-up, Mitt.”

That person then promptly went to the ballot box and picked President Downgrade McMassiveUnemployment.

So why did Romney take it easy on Saint Barry?

It’s the likability factor,” said Spencer, a Romney supporter. “Many people think that Obama hasn’t delivered, but they still like him. I’d rather have a beer with him than Romney. Wouldn’t you?”
