As I've said many times before, memes are stupid. However, my good friend the chaplain has called me up to the altar, and I'm dying to have an opportunity to preach.
Here's her description of the meme:
The rules are pretty simple. First, I’ve been asked to select three members of my blogroll that I think constitute a unique combination that may not be found elsewhere. I may say as little or as much as I like about them; I promise to play nicely. Second, I must tag three people to continue the meme.Now, to tell you the truth, I don't know what the hell the meme's instigator meant by "a unique combination."
Do I try to contrast the youngest blogger on my blogroll with the oldest? I'm pretty sure the former is Yinny, and I'm guessing the latter is that old fart, Ric.
Or do I look for fairly new atheists like JP and Lifeguard, and point out how they contrast with some folks who have been atheists for a long time, like Evo and Philly?
Maybe I should note similarities and differences among bloggers from the west (Mojoey), the south (Babs), the midwest (Hemant) and the northeast (SI)?
Hey, how about some godless women vs. some heathen women? Judging from what DaVinci has been into lately, I'm sure he'd enjoy that one.
But, I've just heard a report that the biggest moron ever, creationist Mike Huckabee, has been declared the Republican winner of the Iowa caucuses. In a country not ruled by the media no one would give a good goddamn what a nothing place like Iowa thinks. But here in The TV States of America, the ovine public might be talked into seeing that ignormaus as a viable candidate. For the next few days, we're going to be barraged with news about Pastor Huckleberry's "momentum." Journalistic crap like that could actually influence the primaries elsewhere, since the main criterion for presidential candidates seems to be something called "electability." Which has as much to do with real ability as an electric chair has to do with a real chair.
And so, since I'm unspeakably embarrassed to be an American right now, my pick for a unique combination of members of my blogroll contains three (actually four) furriners: heather and TW, from the (so far) more enlightened U.K.; C. L. Hanson, who wisely fled the Mormonism of our country (oh, yeah, that reminds me: Mittens came in second) for Europe; and Lynet, who lives on the other side of the world.
I tag no one. But if you're one of the enlightened few in this country and I've forgotten to give you a link, let me know and I'll do so while it's still legal.
