Loose Ends (and Not David Brooks's, Post-Raping):
The Rude Pundit is gettin' ready to head into the wilds of Red State America for the next coupla weeks. In fact, one of his stops on his sojourn will be the New Orleans area, where he'll visit old friends and their washed-away homes and businesses. So the Rude Pundit will report on New Orleans, as well as a follow-up to his post on Slidell.

Prior to that, there'll still be daily posts, including a few surprise blasts from the distant past (way before this blog existed). More on that on Monday.

Then, of course, a new year, Alito-palooza (and its non-stop fun with fetuses), as well as the possibility of a reign of doom for the Bush administration as Iraq inevitably and horribly falls apart and the spying hearings take off, destined for cover-up city. (A quick "by the way" on the domestic surveillance thing: something is either legal or illegal, however Johnny Yoo wants to fudge it. It doesn't matter if every fuckin' member of Congress secretly said, "Okey-dokey" when briefed on the NSA's program; it doesn't matter if Bill Clinton did it and got away with it - although, you know, he didn't do it. If it's illegal, and you get caught, well, shit, if you can't do the time, don't do the crime.)

About The Year of Living Rudely CD:
If you've gotten your copy of The Year of Living Rudely CD, click on back to the CDBaby page for the disc and post a review. God'll love you for it. If you don't, the baby Jesus will cry. You don't want that little bastard to cry, do you?

If you haven't bought it, what the fuck are you waiting for? Hey, Christmas may be nearly here, but Hanukkah is just gettin' its mojo goin'. What Jew wouldn't want to hear George W. Bush fuck a squirrel monkey? Or hear Dick Cheney read a Christmas story to Iraqi children? It's a mitzvah.

And that's not to mention the oh-so-coyly buried bonus at the end of the CD, after the reading of the credits.

More on the Citizen's Contract:
In a fascinating, hilarious, and bizarre way, the Rude Pundit's Loyal Citizen's Contract With the American Government has taken on a little life o' its own. Over at The Stashman, Stash has taken it upon his bloggy self to work up a PDF version of it, makin' it look all official and shit, suitable for printing and use as wrapping paper for a copy of the abovementioned CD.

Rude Interview Available Online:
The Rude Pundit did an interview with the Good Show on KTCU in the Dallas/Fort Worth area this past Sunday. The entire show is available in MP3 form. The Rude Pundit is on during the first hour.

That oughta be it - tied in a big fuckin' box with a big fuckin' bow and giant fuckin' card that says, "Peace on Earth, you know?" Back Monday from Red State America.
