Thank you to everyone who responded to my medical emergency bleg by linking, Tweeting, Tip Jar Hitting, and by offering kind words and prayers for me. As of this evening, it looks like I'll be able to get the root canal which will save my three teeth rather than the cheaper surgery which would have forced me to sacrifice them, barring any further complications, I should have enough to cover it now - thanks to all of you. I am absolutely overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of love and generosity that has been bestowed upon me by the Right Blogosphere. May the good Lord richly bless each and every one of you.
The antibiotics appear to finally be working as I have experienced some moments of relief before the pain comes roaring back an hour or so before my next dose it due. I have developed an upper respiratory infection that has me feeling pretty crummy and my weakened system has made my chronic nerve pain condition decide to blow up and join the party of pain so my bones hurt a lot, but my heart is happy and the haze is finally beginning to lift from my mind. I am tired, but it is time to rejoin the world, and I have a lot of catching up to do!
Carnival of Blegs - Dan Collins at The Conservatory is one of the bloggers who helped raise awareness of my plight and he has a roundup of other bloggers in need, including Lee Stranahan, who also needs help to get his teeth fixed. Please visit the links and help if you can, remember, even a dollar or two helps! Lee is willing to do all sorts of work for anyone who would like to contribute to his dental fund and there is a wide variety of services that he offers so be sure to check out his post!
Also from the Conservatory, Anthony Bialy notes that the problem isn't the color of Obama's skin...
Instead, Obama’s foes are more concerned with his epidermis’s shallowness. Obama is so thin-skinned that physicians don’t bother with X-raying him. Please don’t mention his numerous foibles, because he can’t take it—although there’s not much evidence that he can dish it out that well, either, on those occasions when he’s not reading from a screen.
Obama’s prickliness dissuades more and more people from thinking that he’s a swell guy despite how his policies are crushing us. Our president is as petulant as he is dismissive. Forget another four years: voters are realizing that they wouldn’t want to spend a long weekend with a man for whom the word “narcissist” seems inadequate.
This White House simply can’t tolerate dissent. Ironically, the lickspittle media is at fault: all that unbearably beatifying coverage of Obama meant that their savior never toughened up to criticism.
As a result, any comment or observation that hurts the President’s feelings leads to the issuer getting placed on the Oval Office’s naughty list. It’s taped behind his cherished portrait of Frances Fox Piven.
The poor guy grew so accustomed to being adulated that he doesn’t know how to react when someone honestly and objectively points out his failings. Having won a slot machine jackpot, a rather lucky executive now struggles to comprehend why the machine doesn’t keep pouring out coins no matter how often it’s primed.
He’s never been criticized for anything by the press, which in turn created his inability to defend attacks on his shoddy output. This White House’s comical attempts to monitor us are reminiscent of the incompetence of the sucky former section of Germany. Look out for suspicious hipsters wearing tricorn hats at Tea Parties.
At least they’re entertaining their foes they’re lamely attempting to keep in check with Shemp-level buffoonery. Specifically, attacking and watching Attack Watch is almost too easy, which is apparently why they gave up once they reached double-digit tweets.
The poor White House drones who have Attack Watch’s password know they’re going to be teased mercilessly, so why post more? Every new entry just confirms that their boss is Richard Nixon with broadband access.
The present strategy runs counter to the one deployed by the Bush administration, which didn’t care about what anyone said about them no matter how nasty it was. Instead of responding to every criticism, they spent their time working. Obama is unfamiliar with that concept. RTWT

Congratulations to The Other McCain on EIGHT MILLION HITS! You can help Stacy (America's Last REAL Reporter), Smitty and Wombat celebrate by Hitting the Freaking Tip Jar there, which will help fund their journalistic expedition to Las Vegas.
Also at The Other McCain, good news for Rick Santorum, bad news for Rick Perry, and, there's a GOP debate tonight, but like me, they don't get Bloomberg TV at The Other McCain but they link to Datechguy, who is in New Hampshire live blogging it.
There is a roundup of posts from different blogs covering the debate at lgstarr, you should check it out.
Herman Cain is a Breath of Fresh Air, read why at Pundit & Pundette's terrific post.
Nobody wants to listen to Oblamer, so they're not bothering to anymore. Read President Obey-Me Is Not Being Obeyed by James Lewis at American Thinker for some great insights into the narcissist's brooding meltdown. Excerpt:
Rejection is no fun, especially if you're a heavenly rock star with a savior complex. When people with narcissistic personalities come into psychotherapy, they often complain that nobody loves them -- and they can't understand it, because aren't they just the most lovable fluffy dolls in the world?
This is not Harry Truman. It's not Herman Cain. It's a guy who loves being worshiped, and he can't accept it when the crowds stop cheering.
Narcissists are not nice. They treat others as puppets on strings. The rest of us get drawn in by their superficial charm, and then, after a while, we figure out that we've been had. As soon as we walk away, the result is a towering rage by the narcissist. We all know people like that.
This is all routine psychiatric manual stuff.
If you can handle a little more, President Obama is an interesting mix of narcissism and "Oppositional Defiant Disorder." No other president in history has actually given his fellow Americans the fickle finger of fate in public, to the cheers and applause of his own followers. This is not Thomas Jefferson or Abe Lincoln. This is immature kid stuff.
So here we are. Our moronic MedioCrats have gotten America stuck with a man who was never tested by adversity. Unlike Herman Cain, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and the other GOP candidates, he isn't used to scraping his knees on the playground and then just going "pick yourself up, dust yourself off, start all over again."

The above AT piece links to a NY Post article by Michael Goodwin that is a MUST READ about how isolated (even from his own administration) and creepy Obama has become. Read Aimless Obama Walks Alone.
Congratulations to MOTUS on her Instalanche for her post, The People of OWS: like the people of Walmart, only not as smart. Go for the pictures, stay for the snark, don't miss the comments section at MOTUS, there's always a lot of fun down there!
The eggheads keep saying that the recession ended in 2009, but any reader of this blog knows that it damned sure hasn't ended for me and my family! Many Americans are suffering financially now worse than they were before Oblamer took office. Read about this in an important post at The Lonely Conservative.
