I understand that they have called off Halloween and Thanksgiving in the Nation’s capitol this year. Something about the witch going to New York and taking the turkey with her? But I am not sure. It is going to be awfully difficult to see anything to be Thankful for this year.
Last night at the end of the news, the anchorman actually “apologized for all the bad news here lately, and suggested that we all watch the Thursday edition of Saturday Night Live” as if that was going to be the panacea we all need.
McSame and Palin have been caught in another “gaff” isn’t that what they are calling a lie these days? A political gaff, strange term. But then again, America is full of strange terms here lately. Downsizing, you find yourself unemployed. Market shift, your 401K plan is now worthless. Lifestyle choice, abortion. Ethnic Cleansing, Murder. An affair, adultery. Bail out, Government charity for the rich.
We seem to take everything and “sanitize it to suite our needs” and it doesn’t matter if it is the truth or a lie, as long as we get it out there.
Over and over these people have been caught in “half-truths” as the media calls them, and no one seems willing to take them to task. Back in the old days, Grandma would have you chowing down on a bar of soap, but that isn’t happening anymore in America.
McSame touted ‘Energy Expert’ Palin’s credentials by falsely claiming she delivered a gas pipeline. Last night on Fox News, host Sean Hannity interviewed McSame and Yummy Mummy and asked McSame what her role would be in his administration. McSame said Yummy Mummy would bring him warm milk at bedtime and …. No that it not right.
Remember, laughter is God’s sunshine!
He said that she would be useful on energy issues — presumably because, as he has said before, “she knows more about energy than probably anyone else” in the U.S. And if frogs had wings, they wouldn’t bump their butts when they hopped.
As evidence, McCain claimed on FOX News, that Palin “was responsible for…a pipeline, the $40 billion pipeline bringing natural gas from Alaska down to the lower 48.” Watch it: In fact, there is no $40 billion dollar pipeline from Alaska bringing natural gas to the lower 48 states. As the New York Times explained last month, “the pipeline exists only on paper” — And of course in the collective minds of politicians that are so far out in right field, they don’t even know the game is over and it is time to come on in.
The first section has yet to be laid, federal approvals are years away and the pipeline will not be completed for at least a decade. In fact, although it is the centerpiece of Ms. Palin’s relatively brief record as governor, the pipeline might never be built, and under a worst-case scenario, the state could lose up to $500 million it committed to defray regulatory and other costs.
Two schools of thought seem to prevail among conservative Republicans unhappy with the prospect of voting for John McSame. First, there are those who believe that McSame, though far from their first choice, is looking better and better as the campaign progresses, primarily because the alternative is totally unacceptable. Which is something akin to saying, “I know this great resteraunt, the food there has a little poison in it, and it will kill you, but it really tastes good. Do you want to do lunch?”
And then there are those think that the Republic can survive a Barack Obama administration, especially if it ushers in another Ronald Reagan era. There is a word in the English language that aptly describes this political theory … it is called “In Your Dreams.”
Personally I feel like they are both suffering from phantasmagoria which is a constantly shifting complex succession of things seen or imagined, witness to a bizarre or fantastic combination. I understand that their handlers have now canceled speeches in New Mexico concerning the importance of magnets in the future, more on that later.
So this morning I am opening my email and there it is: I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – I-Hate-You – Possibly written by some Obammer Lover in Cicero, Illinois who is sitting in his home, listening to his two-pack a day smoking brother in the next room coughin’ up his breakfast while composing this wonderful, somewhat terse reply to something I wrote.
Which brings me to my next subject … “Why do they call them marbles, when they are made out of glass?”
Where is Albert Gore when you really need him? Why isn’t anyone asking the pertinent questions of these important people, I am tiring of the political rhetoric and half-truths. If everyone lost five pounds at the same time, would it throw Earth out of it’s orbit? If practice makes perfect, and nobody’s perfect, then why bother practicing? How is it in America, that commercials can claim that something is both NEW and IMPROVED. How do you throw away a garbage can?
Time to go, have to look for a new screen saver, read my required reading (stay a breast of what is going on in the country heh-heh) and answer this knot-head in Cicero, Illinois.
