Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop

Tigger in the Quarter -- this is recycled from a couple of years ago, but in my defense I'm a little busy here, I think it's a pretty good shot...and next week is Mardi Gras.

Am trying to decide if I want to risk bad weather but be in the city on Tueday...or go down Sunday, which looks to be pretty nice.

Tomorrow is the big parade here in Red Stick...but alas, the weather looks like it's going to be awful.

Anyway, have a good weekend.

A Would-Be Pasha of the Potomac

From Album4
I still think Mitt will win the race to the bottom, but Rick's recent over-the-top rhetoric is worth considering in light of something Alexander Hamilton wrote way back when:
...a dangerous ambition more often lurks behind the specious mask of zeal for the rights of the people than under the forbidden appearance of zeal for the firmness and efficiency of government. History will teach us that the former has been found a much more certain road to the introduction of despotism than the latter, and that of those men who have overturned the liberties of republics, the greatest number have begun their career by paying an obsequious court to the people; commencing demagogues, and ending tyrants.
And in case anyone's wondering, no, I didn't have this little pearl of wisdom socked away for the right moment. It's just that, since I'm about to turn 47--and have a degree in political science--I figured I'd put The Federalist Papers on my bucket list, because, well, why not? Anyway, that's from the very first, so easy enough, though I did manage to knock out the first 10 today, and, time permitting, hopefully will get around to the remaining 75 before too long.
