TGIF/Weekend edition - August 6-8, 2010
After enduring a spate of high-profile defections this election year, the Republican National Committee is looking to crack down on GOP party-switchers...If a candidate doesn't sign the pledge, the RNC would withhold party money and resources from his or her campaign. Meanwhile, candidates who break the pledge would be forced to pay back any RNC money they received--
WASHINGTON – An Army doctor has been charged with disobeying orders after failing to show up for duty in Afghanistan and questioning whether President Barack Obama has the right to order him there.
Senator Says Words of Jesus Inspired His Vote for Kagan
Apologies for the late post today. I'm back on a slow modem.
"Happy birthday to President Obama. Republicans tried to block his birthday but they didn't have enough votes, so it went through and the President was able to turn 49 today right on schedule." –Jimmy Kimmel
Better Late Than Never
A U.S. representative participated for the first time Friday in Japan's annual commemoration of the American atomic bombing of Hiroshima, in a 65th anniversary event that organizers hope will bolster global efforts toward nuclear disarmament.
"According to the National Enquirer, Bristol Palin has called of her engagement with Levi Johnston after finding out that he also got his ex-girlfriend Lanesia Garcia pregnant. Forget the oil spill, can someone put a cap on this guy?" –Jay Leno
Medicare Life Span
Medicare is in better shape because of President Barack Obama's sweeping health care overhaul and will stay afloat a dozen years longer than earlier projected, trustees forecast Thursday. But that depends on cuts in care that the system's top analyst says are highly doubtful.
Watching Fox News Feels Like A Knuckle Kneading of the Brain
I saw a repeat of Bill O'Reilly's show early this morning.
It was a segment with fellow Foxette, Laura Ingraham.
It was his typical good cop bad cop role playing, a technique Bill uses quite well. Bill being the good cop, of course.
The subject was Michelle Obama and her wanting to improve the nutrition in school lunches with 4.2 billion to spend.
Ingraham was outraged, frothing at the bit, "Give the kids a tuna sandwich and an apple in a paper bag and send them off! Why should we spend billions? Wah, Wah, Wah." (paraphrased)
Bill, always the gentle man when he wants to be, disagreed with his fellow Foxette and said our children need to eat good food.
Brilliant talking point memo, dumb ass.
Laura Ingraham, a fan of weighty shiny gold crucifixes wrapped around her neck, kept babbling about Michelle getting the 4.2 billion only because she's married to the right guy.
And I'm sure the mindless simpletons cheered in front of their TVs, thrilled that Ingraham dissed the Kenyan's wife and healthy food for the ghetto and barrio kids.
I wonder if Laura Ingraham's deep seated hatred of anything Democrat can be traced back to a single traumatic childhood incident such as: At the tender age of ten years, Laura was bitten by a Democrat's dog while playing with her friends. Laura screamed at the Democrat, "Your dog bit me!!!" The Democrat replied, "That's what happens when you throw rocks at a dog, you dumb little sh*t."
All the kids laughed at Laura. She ran home, crying, vowing life long revenge against all Democrats and their little dogs, too.
Not completely off subject but when I was a skinny 11 year old, President Kennedy had instituted his physical fitness drive across the country and south Florida jumped in 100%. There were 5, 10, 25 and 50 mile runs, presidential certificates handed out at schools for completing athletic tasks, awards for exceptional performances, etc. The media was all over it. Even my after school tap dancing class did a recital showcasing JFK's physical fitness plan.
Here are the lyrics we sang:
The president has made the call
Loud and clear to one and all
Hey Hey USA, do your bit
By keeping fit, that's the whole idea of it
Give the president the most
Make it fitness coast to coast
The call came through from JFK
Build a stronger USA...
(Oops -- senior moment -- that's all I remember)
The whole routine was about two minutes of tap dancing, ending with a double wing while holding sparklers.
Corny but cute.
I went on to join the high school diving team, played scratch golf for years, kicked a 30 foot field goal ONCE in an intramural football game and am passionate about water sports. I'm still somewhat physically fit, minus the recent bout with the Big C. lol
Thank you JFK.
Michelle, you go girl.
And Laura, please wear a crucifix that accurately reflects the size of your Christian humanity. +
"Today was President Obama's birthday. All the Democrats were like 'How old are you now,' while the Republicans were like 'And where were you born?'" –Jimmy Fallon
Non-Political War Movie
documentary about the war in Afghanistan is refocusing attention from the
generals leading the war to the soldiers on the front lines...Chris Fay, a
25-year-old Army veteran who twice deployed to Iraq, saw the movie at Fort
Campbell, Ky., where he was once stationed. He said he's glad the documentary
chose to focus on the troops and not the politics behind the war.
"When the bullets start flying and the IEDs start going off, politics is not going to save your life," Fay said. "It's the guy to the right or left."
I'm Surprised Sarah Palin Hasn't Complained About This Joke
"How can we pull 130,000 men out of Iraq when we can't even get Levi to pull out of his own girlfriend." –Jay Leno

BP Public Relations Is In Full Swing. Tony Hayward Must Be Back.
BP PLC might someday drill again in the same undersea oil reservoir that gushed millions of gallons of crude into the Gulf of Mexico in one of the world's worst oil spills, a company official said Friday.
"BP says they've been able to seal the leak in the Gulf of Mexico. They were popping champagne to celebrate, but then they had trouble controlling the flow of the champagne and destroyed their entire office." –Jimmy Kimmel

"Raul Castro said that his government will ease controls on small businesses, will lay off unnecessary workers, and will allow more self-employment. Apparently, he sees how bad socialism is working in America, they don't want it to happen there." –Jay Leno
Dick Cheney must still be in the hospital receiving excellent government health care.
