Out of the Blue

We finally got the roadside assistance guy out to jumpstart MrsBlue's dead car, so it was homeside assistance in this case. He got it started, and confirmed what we suspected, that the battery was basically shot. So rather than let it idle to try and recharge the battery, I just drove it to the auto parts store and replaced the battery. It's now working right again, and it's nice to have confidence in it, especially in winter weather. Thankfully it died in front of our house where it was easy enough to deal with, rather than leaving us stranded somewhere.

I've been watching Handmaid's Tale with my daughter the last few months and now we're waiting for season 3 ... but ... I have to say, watching HMT and seeing what's been going on in the U.S. these last four years has not filled me with a lot of hope. Now that the nutjob VP is announcing Space Force Guardians as their troop names, it just brought back memories of HMT all over again. I'm sure it's coincidence, but dang.
Yeah... when you see the clowns with their guns at state capitals and at the homes of county health officials... it almost makes it feel like HMT isn't THAT far fetched. Pence is scary. He is as crazy as Trump, possibly worse, and yet he is a practiced politician. A Pence presidency could easily surpass the Trump presidency in damage caused to our democracy.

I don't think Trump's crazy. Just a sociopathic conman who'll do or say anything so long as it benefits him. Pence on the other hand, oh yeah, he has drunk deep of the Kool-aid. If he ever managed to be President somehow that would be the start of WWIII for sure. Much as the last 4 years has been a gong show with Trump at least with him at the helm nuclear Armageddon was unlikely.

That was like Dubya's cabal of "The Vulcans" - Wolfowitz, Armitage, Perle, et al. The group Bush Sr. himself referred to as "the crazies in the basement".
