SOTU Doo Doo!



I am still feeling the ill effects of the SOTU last night.

Pardon me but does this so-called president ever get what he deserves, BOOOS!

To listen to the grand assembly of politicos and their incessant clapfest essentially allowing the lead idiot to rake in undeserved praise for statements undeserving of it as they were, made me physically ill.

The highlight of the speech was before Bush glad-handed Pelosi was her demeanor. She did not rise when the first applause fest happened, rather she remained seated momentarily, then rose but did not clap, I thought, good for her. That was the highlight for me, I turned the channel.

Jim Webb made a bold assertion that if the Prez would not do something about Iraq, Congress would, that lifted my spirits somewhat. Reality dictates SSDD in the halls of Congress, election is coming and that is the focus right now and probably will remain so until Bush bombs Iran into the dark ages in an attempt to force Armaggeddon upon the world.

Clinton and Edwards are already sucking up to the AIPAC crowd, would not want to abandon the Middle Easts' biggest terrorists and interrupt their "ethnic cleansing" of Palestine to suit their grand plans of an even larger state of Israel. Just think of a regional bully being supported by an even bigger bully, the US.

All in all the whole thing makes me sick to my stomach, politicos running around sucking up to everyone they can find, only to turn it all over to special interests after the election, and lying murderous leaders spouting the same old rhetoric, and receiving standing O's.

We have been dropped off at the gates of Bizzaro World, nothing can save us now.

While riding one day, a cowboy met an Indian riding along with a dog and a sheep and began a conversation.
Cowboy: "Hey, cool dog you got there. Mind if I speak to him?"
Indian: "Dog no talk."
Cowboy: "Hey dog, how's it going?"
Dog: "Doin' alright."
Indian: Look of shock.
Cowboy: "Is this Indian your owner?" pointing at the Indian.
Dog: "Yep"
Cowboy: "How does he treat you?"
Dog: "Real good. He walks me twice a day, feeds me great food, and takes me to the lake once a week to play."
Indian: Look of total disbelief.
Cowboy: "Mind if I talk to your horse?"
Indian: "Horse no talk."
Cowboy: "Hey horse, how's it going?"
Horse: "Cool."
Indian: Extreme look of shock.
Cowboy: "Is this your owner?" pointing at Indian.
Horse: "Yep."
Cowboy: "How's he treat you?"
Horse: "Pretty good, thanks for asking. He rides me regularly, brushes me down often, and keeps me in a shed to protect me."
Indian: Total look of utter amazement.
Cowboy: "Mind if I talk to your sheep?"
Indian: "Sheep liar."

Hey guys,
I didn't know if I should or not, but last night I went ahead and emailed David Corn about his Dad. I had a nice reply in my mailbox this morning. He also said he's still thinking about returning the comments segment to this site.

Alan --- Bush lie too. :-)

Kerry says...

Alan said...

Bush lie too. :-)

Yeah, he sure does!! But for dif reasons than that sheep. haha

Jeanne said...

This is what I have to put up with in my state. Gawd!!!

Bachmann says it was her second kiss from Bush

Rep. Michele Bachmann beamed at the State of the Union address Tuesday evening as if she had just been kissed for the very first time.
Actually, it was the second time.

After getting President George Bush's autograph, she clutched onto his shoulder and reeled him in on national television for a wet one on the cheek. "He kissed me in Minnesota, too," she said.

---------------
Can you believe people voted for this groupie?

DEN said...

Being from Minnesota, yes

Jeanne said...

Alan,
That joke is funny.

Jeanne said...

How can people still be so in love with Bush? This woman is a piece of work. She became a tax attorney because her husband wanted her to and she ran for congress because God told her to.

David B. Benson said...

Minnesota --- Isn't Ollie from there?

Saladin said...

Jeanne, they say love is blind!

Jeanne said...

Oliver North??? Don't tell me that David.

Jeanne said...

Blind and dumb.

David B. Benson said...

Jeanne --- Oops, Ole. You know, the dumb Swede...

If you think you feel sick now, give it a few days. This damn presidential campaign is already going full guns in the media. I can't take it.

The news about Clinton and Edwards on AIPAC and Israel is depleting. Expect the rest to follow suit. The criticism leveled against Carter so upsets me, I want to get out a shotgun! SHUTUP ASSHOLES! Anybody care to come along with me to tar and feather Dershowitz? Over and over and over. He and Abe Foxman. Oh, they make my fur fly.

Glad to hear about Pelosi's demeanor. She calculated that carefully. Good for her. She knew all eyes were on her. It's so tough being the first woman in her position in this chauvenistic arena.

As you can tell, along with Dr. B, I deliberately missed the hootenanay. Couldn't take that ritual applause and standing bloviation.

Alan

SUPERB JOKE! I'm going to copy and paste that and send to friends.

Jeanne,

Do you think Bachmann has a man fetish? Whoa, what am I saying? Bush is a man? Hardly. Alan, are you sure that sheep joke doesn't apply? He does live on a ranch.

No one becomes something because they're husband told them to. That's a pack of lies. One giant step backward for womanhood.

Carey said...

Normally I do not recommend reading Alexander Cockburn of The Nation. He is excellent, however, when it comes to commenting on the Israeli lobby and Israel's subjugation of the Palestinians. In this current column, he writes of how the lobby might just be losing some of it's hold on the public debate. It's good.

Get Carter! Iran, too!

Alan said...

Ehh, Hajji asked in yesterday's post, about a way to post Spanky's picture. I emailed him a link to a site that'll post pictures (and even videos) for you, for free. I'm looking forward to him posting a link for us soon.
If anyone else wants that site addy, here it is...

Tinypic is a video and image hosting service that allows you to easily upload, link and share your videos and
images on MySpace, eBay, blogs and message boards. There is no registration, so give it a try!

I grow weary easily right now. I did want to link one article from Elizabeth de la Vega in Tomdispatch. It's lengthy and can be skimmed.

She brilliantly explains my feelings about the whole NSA wiretapping extravaganza. The administration's MO is the same, they quiet up, sneak away and proceed in the same illegal fashion. Oh and the ever-present lies and coverups. Nothing changes as in the case of the Iraq occupation. This infuriates me to the point of being unable to explain myself, the anger just foams up.

Scroll down to find her.

de la Vega is a charming lady, by the way. I saw her take on an interview with Stephen Colbert and she charmed the pants off of him. Can you believe it? Colbert was at a loss for words. I loved it. She reminds one a little of Annette Bening.

What this so-called president deserves is a long prison term.

IMO!

Micki said...

Looks like bush's platitudinous banalities didn't get the desired effect. I loved what Chuck Hagel said to the other GOP members of the committee who refused to sign onto the no-confidence resolution today (paraphrasing slightly) -- "What do you stand for anyway....if you want a safe job, go sell shoes."

I also loved what one informed critic of bush's so-called health plan said -- "it's like throwing a 10 foot rope to a guy who's at the bottom of a 40 foot hole."

I didn't watch the warmongering, dry-drunk maniac on TeeVee last night. I would have had to borrow Gerald's bucket. (And, we all know, Gerald uses it way too often to share.)

Oh, and another thing. I wish some people would get it through their thick skulls, that impeachment is not possible without investigations FIRST. That's how the system works.

Micki said...

Prison is possible.

DEN said...

Grand Jury indictment would get the ball rolling.

Nuff evidence to fill a house!

Ole scooter's trial is getting reeeeel interesting.

Jeanne said...

Carey,
I think Michelle Backmann is a freak. You should have seen what she wore to her acceptence speech. She looked like a Miss America contestant. I think she likes attention. And I think she will get zip done in Congress. She is a waste of time and the vote people used on her. Don't ask me who. She's an idiot.

Jeanne said...

Micki,
I loved those quotes. Especially the one about health care. What good is a tax deduction to somebody who can't afford insurance? They need real money to pay the premiums. And they need real money to pay the doctor.

Saladin said...

Some people need to get it through their skulls that impeachment is the first step. Then you move forward to indictments. If clinton can get impeached for a blow job, surely lying this country into war along with the unknown thousands of casualities and facing another invasion based on the very same lies is reason enough to start proceedings. These lunatics have got to be brought to a halt, right NOW! We do not have time for anymore bullshit investigations! We know enough to hang them from the highest tree, what are we waiting for, pelosi's endorsement?? Don't hold your breath, unless you like the color blue.
