Masterless Puppet

With cronies in the Bush Administration dropping like flies, who, oh who, will be left to hold the puppets strings?

Now that the heat has finally gotten too hot in the kitchen for Alberto Gonzales, the halls of the west wing are starting to sound a bit echoed. True to his rhetoric laden past, Bush came out praising Gonzo, blaming the Democrats and acting all hurt and bruised. He didn't want to accept that resignation, you know.

Seems that Bush is the only one stupid enough to stay on this sinking ship. Everybody else needs to "tend to their families" apparently.

Alas, farewell Alberto Gonzales, you sick little liar. We'll miss your shifty eyes and smirky grin, but most of all we'll be heartbroken to be without your twisted views on torture and the Geneva Convention.

Hang on to your hats, kids...rumors are swirling that Skeletor himself, Michael Chertoff is in the running for Gonzo's seat!! I'll give you a moment to pick your jaw up off the floor...

Wow! Where do I start? It has been a busy news week, but I have had little time to post because demolition started on our master bath this week! Sooo, my week thus far has been spent supporting my dad and over-zealous-power-tool-wielding-girlfriend. By supporting, of course, I mean wringing my hands, peeking around corners, and yelling "Everything okay?" up the stairs.

HEY! Every team needs a support system!

So bear with me. I have some catching up to do, important points to make, and the usual blah blah blah.
(leaves to check on strange sound coming from upstairs)

Itching to commit a crime? Get thee to LA right away if you are a girl, cuz they are barely slapping on the wrist at this point!

Just be sure to bring your baby daddy, your best smoky/smudged eye makeup, and a smirky get out of jail free grin!

wait..what? we HAVE a Civil Rights Department?
Over the past few months, you'd never think so!

must be very lonely to work there...sigh

The media did a fairly good job yesterday reporting on Bush's attempt to invoke fear of repeating the mistakes made in the Vietnam War. It was all over the news. Some simply reporting on the speech, some drawing similar conclusions as myself that he must really be getting desperate since drawing correlations to the Vietnam War has been avoided thus far.

Now to be fair, he did choose to compare the two wars to a group of Vietnam vets that most likely are amongst those forgotten, neglected, deprived and unsuccessfully hidden from society. I figure the hope was that, by now, they are so damaged and neglected that they may not have even noticed the attempt. I mean, he's preachin' to the choir, right?

So, to sum up, he made his argument that we can't just leave Iraq because we would risk repeating the mistakes of Vietnam. Now that that has been said, I wonder how he would explain this brilliant decision of the Pentagon?

Pentagon cuts armored vehicles due in Iraq in 2007

Reckon the media will be so good reporting this today? Doubt it.

edit: I started this post at 6:30 am today and at 1:50 pm, it is already off the front page of Google News. Nice.

Am I to assume that Amy Winehouse is a reader of mine? (blush)
My August 20th post must be making the rounds!

I think the real reason why Lily Allen was denied a work visa for the US is that we already have enough skinny-rich-drunk-high-spoiled-drug addled-messes "working" here already!

Happily, we are back from our annual trek to Orlando for the Florida Chiropractic Association's Annual Convention. You might remember me talking about it last year. I think I even posted pics of our room and the beautiful resort.

Well, I hope you enjoyed those. You will be hard pressed to get us back there for that convention again.

#1 the convention itself is not in line with Jen's philosophy and therefore is nowhere near the shot in the arm it should be for her.

#2 the cool things we find for the office are significantly outweighed by the number of crappy vendors they allow in to set up a booth. Ibuprofen cream? Permanent makeup? Gold chains on a spool? Puleeze tell me what that has to do with spinal health!

#3 the beds are HORRIBLY hard! Now, mind you, they didn't seem to be as bad last year, but that was because we just didn't know better! Select Comfort reigns supreme! The bed situation coupled with the fact that the Internet speed in the rooms, although complimentary, was slower than I remember dial-up being. How is a blogger-girl supposed to keep up with her peeps? I'm just sayin'...

We got home at 1am last night, and for those of you that know these grannies----that is CRAZY!

After an amazing nights sleep, again I say...Select Comfort reigns supreme!

In light of having just sat through my first City Commission meeting this week, to the tune of 4 very boring hours:

I motion to make it okay to slap someone when they are being stupid, selfish, dumb, egotistic, stupid, self-centered, nosey, stupid, bossy, rude, neurotic, adult-OCDish, stupid, manipulative, leading, stupid, stupid, stupid....and stupid.

I would rather sit through weekly City Commission meetings for 4 hours than have to bear the agony of being surrounded by the loons I spent one hour with yesterday morning. Just when I thought the Crazy Train had surely left the station, and taken everyone to a place far away, in walks the reigning Queen, who promptly makes herself at home and seems prepared to stay for a bit.

I now understand why people drink.


If it does, my new new national anthem will be "O Canada"

Be Still My Heart

Okay everybody, you know what this means! Something big is going to happen! The heat is too hot even for MC Rove! Could you ever have imagined the day when these words were on the front page? I have only dreamed of the day.

Karl Rove Says He Is Leaving the White House

more to come...

In what should, by now, not be surprising, our dear friend George has taken to defending the Iraq War and supporting our need for victory by making the hijackers of 9/11 out to be manipulated "kids".

"It matters to the security of people here at home if we don't work to change the conditions that cause 19 kids to be lured onto airplanes to come and murder our citizens."

Am I reading this correctly? Is he actually invoking sympathy for those that attacked us that day as if they were young children forced to take flying lessons and board our commercial airlines to attack us. Let's take a second and think about this...those 19 men were in their 20's and 30's...those 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia...what does winning this asinine war in Iraq have to do with making conditions in SAUDI ARABIA better?

What a crook. How pathetic to choose the side of the actual attackers in order to make a very weak, lame point. And we are the numb, mindless lemmings that not only allow that kind of blasphemous speak to continue, but we are doing nothing to hold Congress responsible for continuing to sign checks for this idiot's ultimate pork project.
Write your Congressperson after the summer break and ask them to start to do the freakin' job we hired them to do. Write every chance you get. It doesn't have to to be wordy or eloquent. We aren't telling them anything they don't already know. They just need to know that we are paying attention.

Whip out your best George W. Bush impersonation and enjoy these doozey quotes from the last few months:

"Information is moving -- you know, nightly news is one way, of course, but it's also moving through the blogosphere and through the Internets." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., May 2, 2007
(yes, he is still saying "Internets" as of this May!)

"The question is, who ought to make that decision? The Congress or the commanders? And as you know, my position is clear -- I'm a commander guy." --George W. Bush, who apparently is no longer "The Decider," Washington, D.C., May 2, 2007

"Either we'll succeed, or we won't succeed. And the definition of success as I described is sectarian violence down. Success is not no violence." --George W. Bush, on Iraq, Washington, D.C., May 2, 2007

"And so, what Gen. Petraeus is saying, some early signs, still dangerous, but give me -- give my chance a plan to work." --George W. Bush, in an interview with Charlie Rose, April 24, 2007

GOP Debate

The GOP held a debate today in Iowa. All the hopefuls gathered in the Midwest to plead their case, grease the wheels and overall bash the Dems at every turn. Figures that they would spend the time attacking us. Only 19% of Iowans polled were happy with the Republican choices for the primary. I think they are pretty disgusted with themselves, frankly.

Here is THE most interesting point regarding the debates for me. They were held on a major network which is fine. They were moderated by a notable political person, George Stephanopoulos, fine. They were held in Iowa, of course, fine.

Now here is the odd part:

It was held on Sunday morning at 9am!!!
Don't you find it strange that the Party of Jesus chose to have what should be a very important debate, on the Sabbath during Sunday School?
If you want my opinion, (and my opinion is queen at this site!!:) ) I think they were banking on the fact that most constituents WOULD be at church and therefore miss the meat of the debate, thereby relying on the highlights to form their opinions. OR they really thought voters think so highly of those running, they would stay home, thus leaving halls of worship to look like this:
Oooo! Here is a great question---How many candidates turned down the debate due to a "schedule conflict"? Let's Anyone? Anyone? (cue the crickets)

I'm the Tragedy President

Doesn't this sight look familiar? Another tragedy...

Anyone wonder how Louisiana and Mississippi are doing?

When was the last time one of us, (those outside of the Bush Inner Circle) was allowed to just not show up to testify in a hearing? Hell, we can't even get out of jury duty in most cases!

(BTW, if you are a member of the Bush Inner Circle, you may want to tune probably won't like the way we talk around here!) heehee

good morning!

Nothing like being on top of things! Brace yourself for this shocker:

Please tell me we aren't just now coming to this conclusion!?!?

Do you every have days when your brain isn't content to just be sick of everyone around you, it actually starts to turn on itself to the point that YOU are even on your own nerves? Know what I mean? ugh. I am so sick of me today.
