I didn't know a woman could be accused of being a lesbian just because she used to play softball. Elena Kagan is probably lucky she hasn't had her picture taken playing golf.
Arlen Specter says he smells "victory in the air". Don't breathe too deeply, Arlen, it might just be napalm.
I have received so many phone recorded messages from prominent people wanting to know if I'm going to vote in the Republican primary, I'm thinking of unplugging my phone until the run-offs are over. So far, I've heard from Pat Boone, calling himself "that singer guy," and former Arkansas resident, now residing in Florida, Gov. Mike Huckabee, among others. I'm not impressed.
The only Democrat I've heard from was a real-live person, asking if I'm going to vote for Blanche Lincoln. When I said "not a chance," the bitch couldn't get off the phone fast enough. She didn't even say good-bye. If she didn't want to hear my answer, she shouldn't have called me in the middle of NCIS.
Then, I got a pre-recorded message from President Obama urging me to vote for Blanch. I'm very disappointed that he did that. I think he should stay out of local politics. Just looks like the "ins" circling the wagons. Politics as usual. Tsk, tsk.
The oil spill saga goes on and on. Today, they're trying to insert a small mile-long pipe that they hope will act like a straw, and suck the oil into a container or something. I haven't heard if that worked or not. Update: Apparently they have succeeded with the sippy-straw, somewhat.
This soggy weekend, Harrison is having it's annual festival, called Crawdad Days. It used to be called Dogpatch Days, and was lots of fun, because it celebrated Dogpatch, USA, a local theme park. But, then, Dogpatch closed down and the town fathers had to think up some other name. So, Crawdad Days was born. Not that there's a crawdad within 300 miles. They have to import them. But, they do have a carnival and various other games, races, etc.
This year, it rained the whole blessed time. I'm feeling sorry for them.
