Ned bitterly regrets our recent hiatus, brought about by much travel and the apparently inevitable accompanying sinus infections. We also suffered a bit of an accident, walking down a street in Sonoma CA which has laid us up for a few days. However, we would like to assure our many friends that we are alive, well, and hating the GOP and all other anti-intellectual knuckledraggers as much as ever. We continue to be amused at what passes for GOP presidential candidates, especially that serial philanderer, adulterer and failed House Speaker Newt Gingrich, whom Ned's followers will recall won our coveted Narcissist Of The Year Award for 2011. We await the 'holidays' with much trepidation, and hope to get through the gift and carol season with as much of our mental health intact as is possible.
That said, we wish all our friends a happy holiday season. In addition, we will be celebrating our Victories For Freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan, and mourning our dear brother Kim Jung Il, or as Rick Perry said, "King Jung the Second."
