Overheard...While having a sidewalk lunch today at Talay Thai on Capitol Hill, I overheard two young, very well dressed people praying before digging into their red curry dishes. Luckily, I had my notebook. An excerpt: "Bless us as we search for new jobs."

Everyone, regardless of ideology or values, seems to like Thai food. Unless it's too spicy, in which case Vietnamese will do.

If the restaurant's on Capitol Hill, I suppose it's full of Bright Young Things who spend inordinate amounts on keeping up appearances.

Do those guys know that the military is hiring?

Too perfect. Apparently He didn't bless them while they were doing their old ones.

"Everyone, regardless of ideology or values, seems to like Thai food."

Not everyone. Quite emphatically, not everyone. To me it tastes like a 4-year-old got into the spice cabinet. And I hate cilantro.

De gustibus...

I don't get it.

But then again I don't eaves drop.

The topic and above comment is what it comes down to, in the end. Regardless of their politics, the losers are faced with real, personal, human issues and two, at least, still retain enough faith in their God to remind themselves about who calls the shots.

This, of course, should make them objects of scorn and ridicule. Schadenfreude, anyone?

I don't think Republican Jesus is going to help those guys, because if there's one thing RJ hates, it's a loser.
