Hawaii this week wearing a 'McCain for President' visor, but she had blacked out

GOP Debates Healthcare With Bird Calling
One of the
Senate's most soft-spoken members, Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), unleashed a little
pent-up frustration on Monday, telling reporters that RNC Chairman Michael
Steele was redefining the term obnoxious with his latest histrionics.
On Monday morning, Steele held a conference call with reporters in which he called Democratic Senators crafting health care reform "cowards" who are "flipping the bird" to the American public.

America, she went to another signing at a Costco in Utah, where they took all
the tomatoes off the shelves. So instead she got hit by a three pound bag of
frozen spinach ravioli." –Jimmy Kimmel

"And listen to this. After one single
senator, just one senator — Joe Lieberman of Connecticut — was able to block
passage of the Medicare buy-in provision of that health care bill, some people
are calling for the Senate to begin experimenting with a whole new way of doing
business. Yeah, it's called majority rules. They're thinking of trying it to see
how it works." –Jay Leno
"Oh, and listen to this. It happened
yet again last month. A Georgia couple showed up a day early for a tour at the
White House — you know, just regular folks. Showed up to tour the White House,
somehow wound up in an invitation-only breakfast with President Obama and the
First Lady. Isn't that amazing? The only two people that couldn't get in the
White House this year were John McCain and Sarah Palin." –Jay Leno

Subject: Goodbye 2009
Thank you for getting me through another year of "political turmoil".
Speaking of turmoil you sure had your share this year. Your son survives a 15 story fall and you're diagnosed with the Big C. I bet you want to say goodbye to 2009 too! How is your son?
Thank you for writing, Janet.
When I found out I had cancer it was about a month after my son survived that fall. I took the news as so secondary in my life to the fact that my son lived. And maybe that was a good thing. A psychological redirection.
My son is doing fine and is back in China teaching English to IT students.
And yes, Janet, I want to say goodbye to 2009 but I don't have a date for New Year's Eve! lol

friends to find them.
