Haven’t heard much from our head cheerleader here lately (Bush), he isn’t getting a lot of media play and even his own party isn’t courting him any longer. His approval rating is lower than Popsicle freezing temperature and he is sinking fast. He is just now starting to realize after eight years, “that if everyone around you has an attitude problem” you might be it.
I suppose if it gets too overwhelming and nothing else seems to help, he could try this.
News book out on him, “Tragic Legacy” and I think that is being kind to him. Americans will rue the day they ever installed this Cheney-Rove-Rumsfield-puppet.
In the late 1870’s the Princeton University football team (the Tigers) had a male pep squad that sat in the stands and supported them with chants of “Ray, ray, ray! Tiger, tiger, sis, sis, sis! Boom, boom, boom! Aaah! Princeton, Princeton, Princeton!”
But it wasn’t until 1884, when football was introduced at the University of Minnesota, that a student named Johnny Campbell became the world’s first cheerleader: He got up in front of a crowd and urged them to chant “Rah, rah, rah.”
As college football spread in the early 20th century, cheerleading spread too. The first female cheerleaders hit the sidelines in 1927 at Marquette University. Paper pom-poms were introduced in the 1930’s.
And then over the weekend, I read where a Wisconsin woman allegedly stole her daughter’s identity to become a high school cheerleader. Wendy Brown, 33, enrolled in Ashwaubenon High School with documents belonging to her daughter, who lived out of state.
Brown attended practice and parties with the cheerleading squad before the ruse was exposed. Police charged Brown with Identity theft and said that “she had no childhood and was trying to regain a part of life she missed.”
Monday morning, the bailout’s continue and a candy bar is soon to be $5 … more if you want nuts. Let’s all say a cheer for all those hardworking political types that finally had to get off their over-paid a** and actually did something …… Ready?
Watermelon, Watermelon, Cadillac Car, we aren’t as dumb as you think we is!
