Ultimately, a penis is to blame.

One of my little brothers is visiting this week. Tonight he said, "I'm waiting for Riot Kitty to update her blog."

Mr. RK said he wanted to show me "math." He pointed out that the calendar said the 19th, and the date of my last post was the 8th.

And so...

The short version: I'm on vacation this week, decompressing from some really, really, REALLY busy and intense work weeks.

The funny thing is, I was debating writing about dealing with idiocy at one of our events last week - and that included the fact that we had no wifi - which meant we had no idea this idiocy was going on across the street at the Capitol. The day we were there was the day before our Governor resigned.

So there we were, our tiny little state making front page national news, because this woman can do something very well. Worth leaving the public eye in disgrace, even. Apparently in his first two terms as governor (which is as many as anyone should have, IMHO), he was, as my dad remembered, "A decent progressive. Too bad he stumbled over his penis."

And then, of course, he blamed - wait for it - the media.

Not himself.

Not his lady friend.

Not his penis!

Personally, I think a decent case could be made to blame his member. I mean, this is the West Coast. We've had such implausible legal cases as the Twinkie Defense and O. J. Simpson looking for the "real" killers.

For his sake, I hope the sex is worth it. But why not try that as a defense strategy?

After all, ultimately, a penis is to blame. That really isn't all that different than "the devil made me do it."

Well, well, well....way to make a come back. "..tripped over his penis"...perfect. Perhaps my rooster that is on trial for his life will use that same defense:)

Hope you are getting some much needed R&R.

Yea, that whole saga was one epic fail of biblical proportions. I like your idea of a defense strategy: Yes, your honor, I knew it was wrong, but the sex was really, really awesome. That could work.

This could have been the title for my post on the Crusader series as well. :)

Don't they ALL think with their dicks? Oh, did I say that out loud?

It has been said, over and over and over again..."The penis mightier than the sword"!

The story of your governor is indeed dumbfounding. And yes - I totally agree that is the reason. :)

Love the lol cats.

I can inform you that I did not read about your governor and his penis here first, because, yes, it is front page national news. At least there are no Anthony Weiner-esque selfies that I'm aware of.

I'll never forgive him for the CCOs. That had to do with his penis, too, but in a less obvious way. Jerk. Egomaniac. Doctor. And so on.

I never stumble over my penis. Now does that mean it's a good thing?

I guess penis envy is a bad thing, eh?

On a slightly sinister note, I saw a documentary on one of the Discovery channels last year that gave a plausible theory that OJ didn't do it.

I find it amusing to imagine the penis giving a press conference: "I did have sex with that woman. And I have to admit I had a great time."

I must live under a rock because I don't know anything about your governor or his penis. Which sounds like a win-win situation to me. Ignorance: ALWAYS bliss.

I wouldn't mind tripping over my penis. I have noticed in life that most bad things that happen seem to be connected with a penis. And a few good things too, of course.
