Thank You!



I just have to say that you people are delightful. Thank you very much.

I wondered just how far I could drag you along into my insanity. You proved to me that you could make the trip without my having to drag you at all. As a matter of fact, while I was running full speed ahead towards the area labeled "Truly Bonkers, And Perhaps Someone Should Put In A Call To The Proper Authorities For This Person's Own Good", I looked up and saw a couple of you standing there already, waving to me, saying, "C'mon, Sully, what took you so long?"

I had the most wonderful time the past two days. Every time I thought that my answers to your questions might be too far out, you asked sillier questions. Every time I had a doubt about you being able to keep track of the campaign promises - and military appointments, and just who was up on the bomb dome and who was down below, cruising around in a jeep, topless - you upped the ante.

I could keep this "Suldog For President" thing going for, oh, another six or seven weeks, but I'm afraid it would reach a point where about five of you would still be playing along, while everybody else (even those who had been playing at some point) would be utterly lost. The way it was escalating, even in this short span of time, we might have left anyone who missed a day or two completely bamboozled.

And that's the way it should have been, too! If some "loosers" fit only for scraping pigeon poop off of the bomb dome can't keep up with the rest of us, then they should use their 300-day government-supplied drug allotment for some smart pills, damn it!

Sorry. I'm having a hard time slipping out of character.

Anyway, no matter what else happens to me going forward in life, I truly thank God that I have such a wonderful group of Admirals, Generals, Adminerals, Commodore Generals, Saints, Witnesses, and Command CMSgts to call upon. You're all aces in my book.

(By the way, you shouldn't take this as a sign that Supreme Exalted Empress Lime has relinquished that part of her title. She was that before this stuff, and anyone who doesn't address her as such runs the risk of being flogged with wet noodles. If you like that sort of thing, of course, send me photos.)

(Some things will never be let go of here.)

(That's a straight line, folks. Have at it.)

Anyway, get down to the business of deciding who you're really going to vote for (if voting is something you can do under the tenets of your religion or in your particular locale) and have a wonderful weekend. I plan to be back on Monday with a meme.

Yup. From insane to mundane. I'll tell you this much about it: I was not named to do it. I undertook the task voluntarily, so you know it must be a fun one.

Soon, friends.

Gutless.

We could have gone all the way. We could have ruled the world. And now we have nothing, not even chocolate. Well, actually I'm pretty sure I have some laying around on my desk, underneath a stack of papers. Oh, and, of course, we'll always have Paris.

Suldog said...

Yes, we'll always have Ms. Hilton.

stands regalling (empress-like) at the door to the asylum and weeps for what could have been...

thank goodness, order is restored

now, what did I do with the rest of my smart pills...

and I'm never out of character ;)

Suldog said...

Exalted Empress Lime - It was fun while it lasted. When MY WIFE read it all - including the comments, of course - she said that we had basically extemporized a Marx Brothers scene. High praise, indeed.

Suldog said...

Ana - I'll check it out.

Suldog said...

SR - If you're always the same, you'll never know if you're in character or not. Only by going out of character do we find out what our true character is.

(Damn, that's deep.)

(I didn't say deep what. You might be well-advised to pull on your hip boots.)

Buck said...

Well, now. It WAS great good fun! MUCH better than "real" politics, if I may be so bold, LOL!

Or, to put it another way: I have an immediate grasp of the obvious. Which is a good quality in CMSgts, generally (or even admirally) speaking.

A meme? Hee! I think I know, I think I know!!

CrazyCath said...

A voluntary meme? Are you desperate or what?
I will call Lime the Supreme whatever-she-wants-to-be-called because she saw the sense in stopping me cleaning pigeon poo! I like this girl!

That was great fun. You are a party pooper to pull the plug and I think I am still in character. Maybe I never went out of character...
I think I need therapy.

Mushy said...

Well, hell, I had nothing else to do, so I even went and voted for you over at blog4rell! Who knows, maybe one of us will become famous somewhere, instead of our own minds!

Chuck said...

I want a cabinet position...something in charge of legalizing prostitution and drugs would be fun. Sorry I wasn't playing last couple days...been traveling and working...but I think you'd be an intriguing choice to run the country. Promise to not bomb Iran and you've got my vote.

lime said...

i know you like your wife an awful lot. have i ever mentioned how much i like her? she's a prize!

Shammickite said...

If you're gonna be Top Dog, who's gonna be your running mate?

Jeni said...

I was soooo looking forward to being Secretary of Education! What to do, what to do now?
Guess I'll have to do a write-in vote, won't I?
Wonder if the people manning the polls here will know who "SULDOG" is though? Think I should do a press release or something? Just to alleviate any possible confusion there ya know.

Shrinky said...

Oh for goodness sake, I'm completely lost now.

(Off to troll back to find out what might/should have been but never will now, that just pooped and flew over my head..)

Moannie said...

Sorry Suldog, I was living in hope that someone would rescue us from the awful shower we have over here.

Shower in that context is derogatory.

Please, what is a meme?

laughingwolf said...

'loosers' as opposed to what, jim... 'tighters'? :O lol

Jenn said...

Well as one of your true supporters, but also one who was about to end her days with no head, I must say that I am glad the whole debacle has been put to rest. It is sad though, now I have to go read the policies of those others and I have a very strong feeling none of them will live up to my now very great expectations :sigh:

Hey you know I read all these blogs with theme days (fingerprint friday, etc) & it hit me that perhaps you have found your theme day...Mundane Monday! Looking forward to it.

"...area labeled "Truly Bonkers, And Perhaps Someone Should Put In A Call To The Proper Authorities For This Person's Own Good", ..."

drat. the postcards didn't make it? pity.

mlh said...

So...am I still getting my tank?

Chris Stone said...

Sorry Suldog. dunno how to break it to you. but i think i need to be leader of the free world. Someone's gotta do it and NOWHERE in your policies do I see sending Matt Cassel to the Buffalo Bills. Nowhere. I think that speaks for itself!

Janet said...

Well, obviously now I have to go back to where I left you last, because working backwards has just failed me.

Janet said...

I am truly sorry that the campaign is over, especially since I missed it entirely. I was looking forward to 300 free allergy pills (yes, being able to breathe is one of the better highs of my life).
But I may still write you in. Or maybe Moe.
