In the aftermath of last month's stalemate at the polls, I pointed out one perverse bright spot: Lizzie Warren would be a member of the US Senate and, therefore, potential blog fodder. The announcement that she's achieved her deepest longing, and been appointed to the Banking Committee, not only sent left-wing mouthpieces like David Lazerus into orgasmic ecstasy, they've guaranteed me at least four years of unrestrained whack-a-mole bliss. As one reader emailed me, the bankers thought they'd killed her off, but she's risen from the dead to eat their eyeballs and has, thus, become: "Zombie Lizzie." So, you see, "it's all good."
Speaking of "all good," I suppose most of you have seen by now the video of the Oklahoma bank employees who were "rewarded" by management for good behavior by being permitted to make a Gangnam Style music video. For those of you who've not yet seen it, here it is:
To me, this demonstrates conclusively that when you live in the buckle of the bible belt, you simply cannot "get jiggy with it" in convincing fashion. My props to the peeps for the effort, though.
Of course, it's tough for any bankers to compete with the Gangnam Styler-In-Chief.
