"I saw a bald eagle flying over the [Wisconsin] Capitol."

Says Meade. "I took that as a sign."

A new "Old Abe" mascot looking for a home?

But Eisenhower isn't running, is he?

Ageist and sexist and anti-homeless.

Meade's going bald?

It's amazing to me how everything is the Presidential election now days, and it's been that way for a year already.

I don't even watch any news stations anymore, because it's so repetitive. Every single time I happen to stop on one, they are talking Presidential politics. Nothing else seems to be happening in the world.

Ha ha. Could be. Coincidentally, later, we walked right under the "Old Abe" likeness on our way home from campus. It was 70 degrees here today.

Hmmmmmm.....

And if we fail to win, it will take us down the path we see, failing, people like the people in Illinois, down in Springfield, and I for one don't want that. Not because this job is that important to me, 'cuz frankly my wife in some ways would love it if I'd go back to the private sector and make some real money. Link

Two things. Actually three things.

1. 144k yearly salary isn't real money?

2. His job isn't that important to him.

3. Has Walker ever really worked in the private sector?

Thoughts?

I take it as a sign there are not yet any stupid giant windmills nearby.

Meade took it as a sign to cover his head and be very careful when he looked up.

The delusion has completely set in.

Well at least Garage can no longer repeat the claim that there's been no job growth under Walker.

Tibore said...

I saw pigeons s**t on my state's capital building. I took that as commentary. ;)

MadisonMan said...

I take it as a sign that the lakes are ice free so birds can see fish in them.

Meade said...

Yes, MadMan. That and this.

Deloras said...

Perhaps the eagle was reminding the Legislators that there is a downside to renewable energy - wind turbines slicing and dicing his friends.

Correction on my temperature report: At the Atmospheric Oceanic and Space Science Building, Madison, WI, today the high temperature was reported to be 66.5 °F

Is it finally time to let go of the past?

traditionalguy said...

If Meade what saw was a screaming eagle, then run and hide the small dogs.


But if it was not screaming, then I suspect that Garage sent it as The Sign of The Ill-eagle. That is Garage's secret code that Walker is to be arrested at midnight for winning elections without permission from Imperial Madison.

traditionalguy said...

Or it is a sign that I have acquired lysdexia.

MadisonMan said...

It was 20 C at the airport.

Let all out MM, let it out. Beat it like Kathleen Falk's hair color.

From Caddyshack... when a black crow perched in a tree catches and steals his golf ball.

Al Czervik: Don't worry it's... it's good luck.

Ty Webb: In Haiti.

Chip Ahoy said...

Don Juan: That's a sign.

Don Juan: That's a sign.

Don Juan: That's a sign.

Carlos Castaneda: That's a sign.

Don Juan: That's not a sign you idiot, that's an omen!

Well.
If you see ten of em sitting in a tree and they're all looking at you.
Those aren't eagles.
Those are vultures.

karrde said...

If it was more than one eagle, would Meade have shouted "The Eagles Are Coming!"


(This happened at the finale of both The Hobbit and The Return of the King. Tolkien liked eagles, and assigned them a special place in his tales of Middle-Earth. But they only showed up and intervened at special times...)
