While trying (it would appear somewhat unsuccessfully) to sleep off a cold/flu whatever all day/night yesterday I missed all Hell breaking loose over at Democracy for New Mexico. And damn, I missed it.
In a cogent, thorough and pretty darn damning piece, Barb calls Jim Scarantino “out” over his (insert derogatory word/phrase here) views on Rep. Mimi Stewart’s new bill on domestic partnerships. It’s the best blog read yet this new year, and includes tons of riffing comments making it even better.
Reading it this early morning, instead of yesterday, I kinda feel like I missed my chance to jump in. Damn ultra-short-term internet topicality. But it’s still good to read, go check it out.
P.S.: And speaking of Jim Scarantino, I realize at this point that almost 2/3rds of Albuquerque residents have appeared on that show, “In Focus”. A question for those who have had the fortune/misfortune to do so: do you get the same creeped-out, bugs crawling up your legs feeling every time you accidentally find yourself seeing “In Focus” while surfing channels on a Friday night? Does your stomach jump as you frantically click the remote away from Channel 5 to anything other than Channel 5? Do you find it takes some minutes for the sweat on your forehead and feelings of gastro-intestinal distress to go away after accidentally watching a second or two of “In Focus”? Do even the words “Jim Scarantino” make you almost want to throw up?
