How - dee...tonight will be the last diary for the week, and, after tomorrow, I'll be off the intertubz grid probably until Sunday afternoon because I am the Head Dharma Teacher for the weekend retreat at the Zen Center where I teach & practice - no TV, radio, intertubz, barely even talking until Sunday afternoon. I know a part of me needs this, but a part of me is really dreading it, too. So, if Governor Mittwit decides to get more Mittwitty, I won't know about it right away. ;D Anywho, this diary will be back Monday evening barring an apocalypse.

Let's look at September 19ths of the past. On September 19, 1911, Sir William Golding, author of the novel Lord of the Flies, was born. Can y'all just imagine how Gov. Mittwit would've fared on that island?? On this date in 1955, President Juan Peron of Argentina was ousted after a revolt by the military. They were PI$$ED because he didn't sing nearly as well as his wife. ;D

On this date in 2008, struggling to stave off financial catastrophe, the Bush administration asked Congress for $700 billion to buy up troubled mortgage - related assets from U.S. financial institutions. I wonder if MENSA candidates are aware of the anniversary?? However, on the same exact day, Mad Men became the first basic-cable show to win a top series Emmy award. So, the day wasn't a total clusterspark. :D Finally, wish a happy birthday to another Brit that makes me D...R...O...O...L.

It's SPARK time! Hell, the way Governor Mittwit's going, he'll earn his own wing in the SPARK HOF damn soon. :D John Wayne Bobbitt should thank his lucky "stars" the Mrs. didn't think to do this. Good doggie!...well, until it thinks the sheep are the biggest steak it's ever seen. ;D Would you wrestle a gator to save your critter? This guy did! Finally, the person who wrote this article doesn't actually have to work for a living.

On with The Rachel Maddow Show!

"Breaking News: Governor Mittwit's About to Address Hispanic Supporters in Miami" - How many of those folk in Miami are in the 47%? Are those folk aware of what he had to say about Hispanics in that infamous tape?? 

"Vanishing Act" - Governor Mittwit won't go away until after Election Day...after he's gotten his 1%er Darling Arse handed to him. UNLESS, he's such a dim - witted Mittwit that he decides to run for POTUS yet again in 2016! He's got the self - awareness to think he'd have a chance. ;D The remarks in that tape made front pages of 41 swing - state papers? OOPS! Well, the biggest ally of the MENSA folk are an uninformed (willfully or otherwise) electorate, so he's hoping they just don't read papers & only watch FAUX News. Governor Mittwit's ahead with voters who are concerned about the deficit??!! Yea, he's gonna continue the policies that got us there to begin with, so, again, there's that uninformed electorate, boys & girls! Gov. Mittwit staffers think it's best to keep their guy "under wraps." Well, if they're doing that, they better put duct tape over his pie hole, too! He's not campaigning in so - called battleground states. So, tonight's gig in Miami is somewhat a big sparkin' deal! Will anyone in the Miami crowd ask him about self - deportation? How 'bout illegals working on people's lawns? The dude who wrote the most odious portions of the "Show Me Your Papers" law in the "Show Me Your Papers" state is on Governor Mittwit's staff.

"Vanishing Act Part Deux" - So, since Governor Mittwit's Dad was born in Mexico, does that make him an anchor baby or something? AND AND AND, Mom mentioned in a campaign video for her hubby that he'd been on welfare for a bit in his young life! Wow...some major self - hatred going on there or something. Paging Dr. Freud?! Senator Barbara Boxer gets to provide her take on the MENSA campaign at the top of the ticket. She's sticking a fork in him & calling him done. Well, I'm not QUITE ready to do that yet; a lot can happen in a short amount of time that'll take this tape off "page 1." A whole lot of different kind of people are moochers in Governor Mittwit's world - soldiers serving overseas, the disabled, senior citizens, etc. Senator Boxer's a bit naive about the whole Middle East thing. People there have been killing each other there for thousands of years, and they'll keep doing it for thousands of more years.

"It's Increasingly Lonely at the Top" - Rep. Legit Rape spewed his ilk exactly 1 month ago today. Before then, he was actually ahead of Senator McCaskill. Now..well...not so much. ;D MENSA folk on state ballots are begging their constituents to NOT think of Governor Mittwit when they go into the voting booth. MENSA Senate candidates are especially being hit hard - GOOD. Although, hell, Dems couldn't do anything in the Senate when they had a "Super"majority, so nothing will change there. Senator Nude Cosmo, among others, are doing their best to distance themselves. Governor Mittwit's failing miserably in districts in swing states where he needs to kick a$$ and take names. "Safe" MENSA districts might not be so safe - again GOOD.

"Doing Their Partisan" - Isn't that John Boozman the dude who beat Blanche WhatsHerName who's probably making a $hitload of money in the private sector since she lost her job? We're getting previous employment histories of a few sitting Senators. 4 MENSA Senators were specifically mentioned. Returning soldiers have a horrific unemployment rate once they get back here. These 4 Senators helped to tarrantino help employing veterans once they get back here. They also helped write parts of that Veteran Jobs Corp bill. Yep, that's your MENSA logic there, boys & girls! That jobs bill is dead until next year. Patrick Murphy is a former Congress critter & was the first returning Iraq - Afghanistan veteran to serve in Congress; he's thrilled - obviously. Reps for these 4 Senators insist they were just against some pesky rule; they were not against veterans. Well, they are against President Obama, so everything & everyone else is secondary.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
