I voted for Romney. Why? One word: Benghazi.

" You keep lyin' when you oughta be truthin' "

(from Nancy Sinatra, These Boots Are Made for Walkin', an apparent reference to Obama's cowardly acts to not help the US Ambassador in Libya)

NB: Please vote early. If you have voted al-ready, please call or help someone to get to the polling station. We need to win this thing before Tues.

Is it only mid-autumn? So, the leaves are off the trees and Halloween is behind us. What are we supposed to do until winter shows up?

Eustace Chilke said...

Eat turkey.

Ann Althouse said...

There are 3 months to a season. Autumn began in the 3d week of September. I say late autumn begins around Thanksgiving. This is mid-Autumn.

Irene said...

That's a very lovely paint job.

Sharp contrast?

Obama Vs Romney

Sharp contrast is to "old man get a maid" is to Goatness.

A nice time to snuggle up to your sweetie and keep warm.

PS What Irene said.

Sorun said...

I think autumn is two months long and winter is four months.

Meade said...

@Irene, ed: Shucks, thanks.

Erika said...

We're going camping up in central Texas next weekend. High of 85, overnight lows of 60. Mid-autumn, Texas-style.

Lem said...

That's a very lovely paint job.

I second that.

Dante said...

This is a political blog. Are you showing the contrast between shadow and white? Is it racist?

November

Let's put on our sweaters and go for a walk in the park,
Where the leaves that are left are yellow and the day's neither bright nor dark,
Where the world is sadly muffled but the feeling's not really sad,
Out in the gently subsiding day feeling peaceful not feeling bad.

In L.A. Autumn is one month (November). That's how long it takes all the leaves to fall off the trees that do that. It started last week. It's gonna be around eighty for the next few days and then I'm sure it will be winter by end of the month with some rain and temps down to 60. It's almost unbearable. Send supplies.

Meade did that painting with great care.

Autumn ends for mesquito when they set the clocks back, after-work bike rides end, and seasonal affective disrder sets in.

:(

NotquiteunBuckley said...

If not responsible for the deaths of very individual American SEALS, what does the term "indirectly" mean with regards to Althouses culpability?

Sorry to break the news, ignorance has never been an excuse that passes muster.

Meade did that painting with great care.

And, I suspect, no small amount of love.

Ellen said...

That's a lovely plant job, too. Cercis canadensis, no?
The lovely pink flowers in spring will be brilliant on Meade's canvas of cream.

Chip Ahoy said...

Riiiiight. Mead did. Care. Great.

Oh I am sorry. I do apologize. I'm wrong all over the place. Boy, do I ever have egg on my face now.

*grabs coat, leaves*

Chip Ahoy said...

With a beatific Romney nod!

Roll Tide!

Apparently Bloomberg is refusing Nat'l Guard help due to the fact that they carry weapons.

Christopher said...

I'm praying that this story just ends up being satire.

Headline on Drudge:

"MOTHER OF SEAL: 'I BELIEVE OBAMA MURDERED MY SON'... "

How I read it initially:

"MOTHER OF SEAL [the singer]: 'I BELIEVE OBAMA MURDERED MY SON'... "

Very puzzled for a moment.

Lem said...

The Last Town I Painted - Girl Howdy

Lem said...

lol..

Sounds like you had a birther moment.

Freeman Hunt said...

Seal has a mom?
I guess he'd have to.
Why would she think Obama had Seal killed?
Crackpot relative; what can you do?
Wait, Seal is dead?
And someone killed him?!

One should always read the following headline right away, before pondering, to clarify.

A nice time to snuggle up to your sweetie and keep warm.

It was 82 degrees here today.

Shanna said...

"MOTHER OF SEAL [the singer]: 'I BELIEVE OBAMA MURDERED MY SON'... "

Would make project runway a whole lot more interesting.

Lem said...

Eastern time is synced with Central time for one hour... they get together and catch up.

I imagine the easterner promises more flexibility after this year.

Lovely

Going on my fall canoe trip on the Suwannee in Georgia . Tupelo trees are great in the fall.
You all know the song but i bet you've never seen a water tupelo.

Bigger around the trunk than a cypress, great fall color, if you can call 76 degrees in Fargo Georgia Fall.

http://www.humanevents.com/2012/11/03/bloomberg-refuses-national-guard-entry-into-brooklyn-because-they-carry-guns/

If the looters should get out of hand because of a lack of armed deterrent that National Guardsmen could have provided but didn't, the Drudge headline will read: BLOOMGHAZI.

Economics permitting I'll be visiting my daughter at Christmas in Huntington Beach. Last year I'd get up early to walk to the beach, about a mile away. It was always around 34-36 deg. Walk through the cold fog in a shirt, a sweater and a hoodie. By the time I got back it would be 75 and clear and I'd be carrying my sweater and sweatshirt.
I love the weather. Hate the congestion and expense.

You never know what time it is if all you have is atomic clocks, hour-handwise.

Michael Haz said...

Freeman, my first thought was "Flipper's mother can speak??"

wyo sis said...

Confused about SEAL I You Tubed "Kiss from a Rose" and "Killer" it was nice. He covered some great 60's and 70's stuff I'd never heard.

Molly said...

I know Althouse blog is interested in the semiotics of Drudge. Here's an interesting juxtaposition of headlines:

"Joe Biden: I'm going to take a vacation.

REPORT: mentally disabled exploited to vote.

Killer registers and votes from NC mental hospital."
