I Confess!!

I confess...I am in love...

...with Washington, D.C.

Well, not actually the city itself but its' noble (no bull...) inhabitants.


Are you kidding me?

And why is it always the ones who pontificate so loudly who do EXACTLY the thing that they rant about...and then use the formula apology when caught; "My behavior was reprehensible...blah, blah, blah...I love my wife (yeah, right)...I love my kids (not so sure about the 'brown one') ?"

Don't do drugs!...Congressman So-and-So gets caught in a DEA sting.

Don't patronize hookers!...Senator What's-his-Name gets caught with his pants down...literally.

Gays are BAD!!...Congressman!

On and on and on and almost never women mind you...almost always the men...the bellicose, hypocritical, tyrannical blowhards to whom we give so damned much power (we elect them remember...our choice you know...) who seem to live in a "Do as I say, not as I do" world. The most the women get caught doing is hiring illegal nannies. At least they are doing something about unemployment as they actually care for their children...well they're not really doing the caring themselves...but, you know what I mean.

I just LOVE the fact that Senator Nelson had an affair. And it is characterized as having been with a good friend's wife. good?

He, apparently, has resigned his "leadership" post, whatever that is. He has called upon others to resign in the past, yet he will most assuredly, try to hold on to his seat.

And well he should...we don't care about morality...we don't care about accountability...we don't care about responsibility...the 24 hour news cycle will be overtaken by the next big deal...what's that you say...there's war in Iraq and Afghanistan...the economy is on life support...the Earth is dying...what...Paris Hilton said what...?

We only care about who won American Idol, or the Super Bowl or The U.S. Open, or Powerball.

We don't care that we are governed by a bunch of scumbags who took the Hypocritic Oath of Office when they arrived in The Nation's Capitol.

Well, not all of them are scumbags.

Some are patriots.

Oliver North. John Poindexter. Bud McFarlane. Dan Rostenkowski. Wilbur Mills. Tom Foley. Larry Craig. "Scooter" (what a cute little sobriquet...) Libby. David Vitter. John Edwards.

Can't you just see a July 4th parade with all of those guys marching with a banner? What would it say? "USA all the Way!!" (United Scumbags of America...?)

"Oh Say Can You See...?"

Yup...I can see.

Have a nice day.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The Election


Sarah Palin wins the presidency in 2012.

Why does she win you ask, awakened from your Cannes induced slumber?

Because we can't stop talking about her. It's like the proverbial train want to look away but can't stop looking either.

The woman is an icon of the hard far right wing of the nearly defunct Republican Party.

I say nearly defunct because it is not totally defunct...yet.

We keep it alive by actually engaging with it about issues of governance...about which it has demonstrated very little aptitude.

If Sarah Palin wants to rant about David Letterman...let her. When a child carries on about the deprivation of a toy or too few cookies we don't engage...we adults ignore. Soon the brat chills and we get back to the business at hand...whatever that is...ironing, cooking, kissing, arguing, taking out the trash...whatever.

Just ignore the woman and maybe she'll go away....maybe.

But NOOOO...we can't do that...she's too powerful...she's a governor...she's a hockey mom...she's a moose lover and a Todd lover and an advocate for disabled kids and a supporter of the troops...

Wait a minute...

Maybe she ain't so bad after all...

Maybe Letterman is a horse's arse...

Maybe the Republicans are right...



Prediction #2:

Sarah Palin assumes the presidency on January 20, 2013.

Can you say "Ex-Pat...?"
