And So It Goes In Shreveport…Again

11 April 2010 @ 17:58

Pat is back — Pat Austin that is.  She has returned from the depths of St. Paul’s Bottoms.

Several weeks ago:

…The day after Obamacare passed (seems like an eternity ago, now), I came down with some godforsaken bronchial infection that has plagued me ever since. Is there a connection? Maybe! I’m absolutely blaming Obama.

Anyway, I’ve spent most of my time since then going to the doctor, taking antibiotics and anti-inflamatories, drinking cough syrup like water, and trying to breathe. Sleepless nights, missed work, the whole nine yards. And blogging? That’s been the last thing on my mind. And honestly, a part of me thought, “Well so what if I can’t write and try to expose the Obama regime for what it is? It’s not making a difference anyway!” I was worn out.

I’m better now. I’m not 100% yet. I woke up last night still coughing and unable to sleep because of it. But I’m absolutely leaps and bounds better than I was….

OBAMA: ‘So I waved my mystical, magical fingers like this
and that Shreveport extremist got really, really sick.’
WOMAN: ‘You’re really funny in a sad kind of way, aren’t you.’

It’s good to have her back and building back her strength for the needed battles ahead.

As her first act, Pat has provided us with a great aggregation of links yesterday morning [full disclosure: she throws some Louisiana-style link love my way] thank I’ve been working off of since yesterday.

Since then, she’s been a bit of a blogging fool.  My favorite is her good summation of Mike Pence’s speech at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference.  I got to watch a repeat of it late last night /early this morning on C-SPAN, and I have to say, I was very impressed with the man.  Pat describes it as a barn-burner.  It was, but he delivered it in both a rousing and sober way that was majestic and dignified.  I am definitely going to look into his record [I would love to hear your impressions]. Do take the time to click here and read Pat’s posting which also contains a link where you can watch the speech, which I would highly recommend as a transcript doesn’t do it justice.

SIDENOTE: I just noticed that Pat has made me her Featured Blog today.  Thank you very much, Pat.

    Pat’s back! Not that she really left but still… Let’s hope she keeps up the chicken soup and the antibiotics and the awesomeness.

      There’s a definite gap when she’s not blogging.

    I think Pence is the real deal based on what I’ve heard him say. I notice that he doesn’t try to push himself to the front he seems to be about business. That the Tea Party seems to trust him, say’s something.
