The Ineffable¹ Plan

Chris and Natasha at Open Left discuss How We Learned To Stop Criticizing and STFU.

As Obama explained to a reporter today [a bit testily if I’m any judge] that while he is appointing veterans of the Clinton administration, and even going back to Jimmy Carter for Paul Volcker, it is the policy that these people implement that will provide the change. Essentially saying that he, personally, is all that is necessary for change. [This sounds an awful lot like saying “I’m the decider”.]

1. Ineffable \In*ef”fa*ble\, adj A: defying expression or description; “indefinable yearnings”; “indescribable beauty”; “ineffable ecstasy”; “inexpressible anguish”; “unspeakable happiness”; “unutterable contempt”; “a thing of untellable splendor”. [syn: indefinable, indescribable, unspeakable, untellable, unutterable]

B: too sacred to be uttered; “the ineffable name of the Deity”. [syn: unnameable, unspeakable, unutterable].

I remember some doggerel (not mine, regrettably) that described Lolita as both ineffable and F-able…

Here’s hoping you’re having (or had) a great T-day, Bryan!

Well, there are a lot of “former” turkeys, which is always good news 😈

Leave the wild horses alone and use turkeys in dog food.
