Early mid-week of a holiday break, or what, come tomorrow and the storms have subsided, the rains moved on and life continues.
Thanks giving is mostly a 24/7/365 thing, not just just one day of bottoms-up eating and NFL football — the American Dream.
On occasion and especially in this techno-age of instant image flash, that dream can look a bit rough — reportedly pumping his very-own gas in California yesterday (pix at left) was splashed via Tumblr with PoliticsBuzz adding: Mitt Romney spotted in the wild.
And he appears fevered, fidgety, maybe even nefarious looking, like some nasty character from a shitload of ‘wise-guys’ movies where the great plan has gone hideously wrong.
He’s waiting for a lady accomplice — she’s inside, paying for the gas and getting some smokes — he’ll just have to kill her later, dump her body in the desert, maybe somewhere south of Durango.

Mitt Romney was a mirror of the Occupy Movement — he showcased the massive, nation-dissolving inequality of modern America, and myself in fifty years of watching presidential elections has never, ever seen a more asshole presidential contender.
He is a marvel of a lop-sided Marie Antoinette, he really just don’t give a shit.
May he be quickly-flushed down the toilet of history.
When all the votes are counted, could Mitt Romney really end up achieving perfect poetic justice by finishing with 47 percent of the national vote?
Dave Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report says new votes in from Maryland put Romney at 47.56 percent.
He predicts with certainty that with all of New York and California counted, Romney will end up below 47.5 percent of the vote.
At risk of piling on, a 47 percent finish would represent a perfect conclusion to the Romney political saga.
If Romney ran a campaign of unprecedented dishonesty and lack of transparency, virtually all of it was geared towards misleading people about the true nature of his — and his partyâ€™s — actual beliefs and governing agenda.
This was the case on multiple fronts, from Romneyâ€™s dissembling about the size of the tax cut heâ€™d give to the rich, to his evasions about the overhaul he and Paul Ryan planned for the safety net, to the obscuring of the massive upward redistribution of wealth represented by the Ryan agenda — the GOPâ€™s central governing blueprint for nationâ€™s fiscal and economic future.
Although Romney supposedly will ‘retire from politics,’ there’s no way he’s going quietly — he’s just too much of a jerk.
Okay — that settled, let’s get back to the real news: Natalie Khawam, the twin sister of Jill Kelley, refused to answer reporter’s questions Tuesday about how Gen. David Petraeus and Gen. John Allen came to write letters on her behalf during her highly volatile custody battle.
