Happy New Year!



Let’s start it off right with some good news.

1) An important victory for free speech on campus (H/T: Robert Stacy “The Other” McCain).

2) The political success of Kennedys is not always inevitable.

3) We’re still here, the prognostications of climate alarmists notwithstanding (H/T: Tiger Hawk ).

4) Gina Elise has a new pinup calendar (Woof!).

5) My blogfather, Tim Blair, is still goin’ strong.

6) Why wait until the news happens? Let’s invent some headlines for 2009 now:

Jesus Returns, Proclaims Second Coming; Iranian Students Burn Danish Embassy in Protest

7) I am currently negotiating with the estate of a recently-deceased Cuban exile for the purchase of what I’ve been told are unpublished fragments from Che Guevara’s diary of his activities in the Congo. It is my fond hope to be able to present these important historical documents to the world sometime over the coming months. I am also pleased to announce that I discovered another page or two from the secret Bolivian diary in the old canvas pouch which yielded the earlier entries published by Paco Enterprises back in May of this year.

Thanks to all my friends out there who tune in, whether daily or just every once in a while, to visit my humble blog. I hope you will continue to find things here to entertain, instruct or, perhaps, simply distract you as we enter what is sure to be an unusually crazy year. Best wishes from Casa Paco to all of you! And remember: if you drink, don’t drive; you may hit a pothole and spill your drink. And please continue to patronize our sponsor:

You should rebrand those, Paco. I kow, vanity is a powerful force, but imagine how many of those you'd move if they had Barack's smiling visage on every pack. Some smart product placement, and BAM!

Not only is smoking cool again, but smoking Pacos is the ne plus ultra of cool.

Happy New Year to Paco Enterprises! May this year be the year you achieve world domination!

Paco said...

Not to worry, Swampie! I intend to use my power for good, not evil.

Very best to you and the entire Paco clan in 2009, of course moving forward as well.

OH and the next time to run into, that famous detective tell him to keep up his great adventures.

He helps keep America vibrant, just as you do.

Happy New Year again, and I'm positively salivating over the prospect of new pages from Che's diaries.
