Too Hot To Think

Just a few observations on this hot, hot, hot afternoon.

Michele Bachmann has migraine headaches controlled by medication, according to the Daily Caller. It is reported that the headaches render her incapacitated, and, caused her to be hospitalized in July of 2101. She assures us, however, that the headaches will not get in the way of her presidency.

If I were married to that man, I'd have migraines, too. Severe ones. Often.


Rupert Murdoch appeared by a British Parliamentary Committee today.  He claims he is shocked, SHOCKED and ashamed at the hacking by staff at the News of the World. He adds that he knew nothing about such goings on. Really.

My prediction:  Hacking is just the tip of the iceberg, and his holdings in his country may well be involved.

I'm on the side of the guy who gave him a face full of shaving creme.


Gov. Rick Perry of Texas thinks being president is his "calling". Well, he has been "calling" regular prayer meetings since his election, and lately has tamped down the messianic rhetoric, but it still follows him around.

I hope he'll go ahead and get in the race. There's always room for more crazy.

Stay tuned.

How true...of how true. The world is full of crazies wanting to be president.

Of course, I think they'd have to be crazy.

Glad to know that you and I are in agreement!!!! I dated a conservative for a couple years and I got tired of the rhetoric and him telling me what to do all the time.

I think anyone who really wants to be in the public eye is crazy!!

Hello there. I am just returning from vacation and have been catching up on my blog readings. I am going to combine some comments for several of your recent posts that I missed.
First, I am hopeful that Bachmann runs for President. If she wins, I will be able to convince husband to move to Europe, which has been a dream of mine. If she loses, at least she will no longer be my rep. That has been a personal embarrassment for too many years. Her husband is, as one very astute person stated, so deep into the closet that he can see Narnia. Loved that one, and I think it is very true. She has to suffer migraines, with her half-witted ideas.
I did not see the Pledge that you are referring to, but it must be a doozy. Can't wait to see which of the crazies will jump on it. Huckabee must be one of the targets if it is referring to Mormons, huh? His house looks quite cozy.
Hope you are staying cool-both physically and mentally!!!

I just gave out a great big yahoo!! I realized Betty has a whole new batch of folks to entertain her for the next couple of years.
Next to my GLB your my favorite liberal, oh I should probably not leave Arkansa Patti out of this honored group!

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Just discovered you!
And I'm sure glad I did.

So migraines are Michele's excuse for her bigotry and close mindedness. hmmm...

Murdock is an arrogant $%@# and to think he knew nothing his company was doing is ridiculous. Loved the pie man as well!!

Re: Michele Bachmann--Migraines my not interfere with her ability to govern, but something else in her head is going to.
Rick Perry--So puffed up! How is it that saying someone "is not a Christian" the ultimate insult? I am not a Christian. I never thought that made me a bad person.
Rubert Murdoch--Yeah, a control freak just lets little details like hacking by his staff float on by him, never paying the least never mind. Is he a Christian? And does that alone make him a good person?
Sarah Palin--Did she not do anything to irritate us today? How did that happen?
Sorry, I am getting carried away here. You struck a nerve.

You seem to be thinking very clearly, hot or not.

Betty said...

Margie: A crazy president might be all right if he/she had a strong, sane Vice President willing to work behind the scenes, like Dick Cheney did with "W", only he/she'd have to be a Democrat. lol

Betty said...

Kay: Back in college, I refused to date a guy because he was a Republican, even though he was a friend.

Betty said...

kenju: I'd have to agree with you, there.

Betty said...

alwaysinthebackrow: Welcome back! You'll have to Google that pledge. It really is a doozy.

Betty said...

Grayquill: The elections keep me from being bored, and the crazies just keep on coming.

Why thank you. You're my favorite Republican. You ARE a Republican, aren't you? Or, an Independent, maybe?

Margaret (Peggy or Peg, too): Welcome! Come back any time. I always like to meet new people in the internets. lol

Olga: I'd like to think it's because this is the Silly Season that so many of them are coming out of the woodwork. I'd like to, but I'm afraid I'd be wrong. I think your nerves are in for a good jangling in the next two years. lol

Darlene: Thanks. I take my cues from you.

Grayquill said...

I use to say I was a Republican but now I am too embarassed. So, I mostly just try to keep quiet.

Betty said...

Grayquill: LOL. No wonder I wasn't sure.

Big John said...

Here in the UK 'The News of the World' newspaper was always known as "The Screws of the World" or "The News of the Screws", and for very good reason !

Looking to the Stars said...

LOL, great post!! Loved it!

Betty said...

Big John: My old High School Journalism teacher told us that the slogan of the New York Times was not "All The News That's Fit To Print." She said it was "All The News That Fits, We Print." She was right, even way back then. Way, way, way back. (sigh)

Betty said...

Looking: Thank you.

Can't help commenting Bachman's headache is about 90 years in the future, if my math is correct.

Many of us will not have to endure the press coverage, whichever leaning.

At least I, at 75, have very little chance of living to 165 years. I suppose HOPE does bloom eternally in the soul.... or whatever that saying is.

Just a funny. I have certainly made more and funnier typos than that.

I'm somewhat with Grayquill but really am closer to a fence-sitter and wish there were (1)a viable third party or,(2) more independent candidates with enough charisma and the all important MONEY to make things interesting.

Stay cool.
