Live your life so people are proud to know you: Spencer Cox

By: QueenMab Wednesday December 19, 2012 4:55 pm

I got up at 4:30 am this morning, and wrote a post about Spencer Cox.  He was my friend, and he was snarky and spit-your-drink funny, and also a world-changing hero.  He loved French bulldogs and Patti LuPone.  When we met as teenagers, apparently he thought I was really weird.

I don’t know where to start.  My friend Spencer Cox is dead.  My first reaction to the news was to admonish him, on Facebook, that he wasn’t allowed to die, dammit, and if he’d just admit it was one of his jokes I wouldn’t be mad.  Because.  It couldn’t be true.

 

Counter-petition to “Georgia secession”

Normally, I would just ignore this kind of nonsense.  But I actually think it’s a stunt, an Overton window piece of wackiness intended to make it seem like President Obama has less support than he really does.  That or the media outlets reporting it as “news” are startlingly stupid.  Either one seems plausible.

In any case, they have a head start on me and have been very, very busy…if you search for that petition it got posted allllll over the place.  Please sign and forward.  I want this ridiculous temper tantrum to get lots of public mockery and to fail in its intent.  (Which again, I don’t think is really about secession.  It’s about undermining the President).

UPDATE:  Or how about this one started by a guy from Alabama.
