Tea and Nonsense











I’ve been out of the loop for a while. Can someone tell me why Rush Limbaugh shaved his special place and staged pervert rallies across the nation? I kept turning off the evening news every time I heard “tea bagging” because my mother was in the room.

I heard the Obama family got a dog. The cashier at Dollar General said it was a Kennedy. “Their dog is a Kennedy?” I asked. “No, their dog was from Ted Kennedy and it isn’t even from a shelter. It’s WRONG.” Jesus Christ. When an old guy with brain cancer gives someone a puppy the correct response is “thank you”. The next thing I know, the cashier was bagging my greeting cards with the ice cream and ruining everything. How ignorant.

I caught the tail end of Obama’s key party in Trinidad with Latin leaders. I think Hugo Chavez is a nutter and a gasbag as much as anybody, but I do realize the merits of shaking the guy’s hand in front of the press. Hugo makes Obama look so much taller in photographs.

You know what else? Sitting in my Dad’s Vibe and listening to NPR was easy on my eyes. I was chock full of breaking news alerts that went untended in my inbox for three months, so I wiped out almost everything. It felt awesome.

What else did I miss? Is Octo-Mom really La Toya Jackson?

Well, Famous Nutsack Newt Gingrich was grousing about the Chavez thing, and was stupid enough to actually say that no American president had ever smiled when they visited the Russians. This notwithstanding:

Conservitives had a heyday with the Obama's Europian tour. Europe still hates us (nothing new). He bowed when he met one of the Arabians. Sean Hannity said it was a sign of weakness.... I thought he was admiring the Italian shoes. =) The tea parties were a hoot!!! Really people, do you think throwing tea bags on the White House lawn will change policies?? Duh!!!!

I know you don't hate anyone Lucy!!! I meant France in general. They've always hated us....

France hates everyone. It's what makes them so funny.

Mojo, don't talk about the tea bagging please. This blog is too good for that.

Actually, I mean, I'm absolutely sure that Europe doesn't hate Speedy ;-)
