Update and bumped: I don't know about everything on this list of Most Annoying Songs of the 1970s - yeah, they're all annoying, but I can think of some that are more so - however, numbers one and two are spot on.

Another inauthentic, traitor to his race explains his break with the One True Party, Holy and Vitriolic.

Is it too much to ask that Senators read their own bills? (H/T: 36 chambers).

Guys, I don't think the expression "get a room" means what you think it means.

Over at the Public House, two women experience their first meal in a restaurant. Ever.

What'll it be, politics or feminine pulchritude?

Miss Red provides a road-map for understanding the Middle East.

Obama: "Trust me."

The, er, shy and retiring Mark Levin passes along a few gentle observations on some current events.

Randy does the math.

Beer statistics.

Swampy's husband is what I'd call an Idea Man.

Breaking America: the final season.

Anyone who comes up with a "Top Ten Most Annoying Songs of the 1970s" that does not include Terry Jacks' "Seasons in the Sun" is simply not even trying.

Or perhaps the worst of all: Manilow's "Copacabana".

Shit. Now I'm stuck with an earworm.

I used to work with a charming accomplished woman named Roxanne. How she made it through the '70's with that Police tune I'll never know. Every time her name was mentioned at sales meetings, the entire crowd would sing, "Roxxxxxxannnnnne". She took it rather well.

I had to stop. Earworms were leaking out of my head.

Hey, thanks for the link, Paco. SwampMan's latest idea for me this morning was "Why don't you write a cookbook? The title could be 'Breakfast That I'm Not Cooking For My Husband Right Now'.

Find a copy of Dave Barry's Book of Bad Songs. It grew out of an article he wrote mildly criticizing a Neil Diamond song, which generated a shitstorm of furious mail from hard core Diamond aficionados (yes, there are such people).

From there he got another couple columns out of examples of bad songs readers sent in, to the point he could manage an entire excruciatingly funny book of them.

Warning - if you do read it, have an earworm antidote at hand. A handful of Percocets, a bottle of booze, even a large hammer.
