News Tidbits

Tiger, Tiger, burning bright,
Who are you sleeping with tonight?
So far, you have your choice of ten,
But, one of them won't be Elin.

Well, I'm shocked, shocked, I say! O.K. I lied. I'm not shocked at all. No wonder he tried so hard to keep his private life private. But, to no avail. Every morning brings a new bimbo eruption. Wonder what it's all going to cost him, and we're still waiting with bated breath to see if there are any little Tiger cubs running around with little toy golf clubs.


Sarah Palin has been in the area in the past week. She was in Springfield, MO, Branson, MO and Fayetteville, AR. I haven't read her book, and I don't plan to. If I want to know anything about it, I can just read the blog of Margaret and Helen. Helen is reviewing the book.

I continue to be amazed at how many people are taken in by Former Governor Palin's lies. She flies in to an area on a borrowed corporate jet, gets off and boards a bus, which she rides a few miles into the town and pulls up at the bookstore or mall where she signs books for two hours. If you want an autographed picture, you'll have to pay for it. She does nothing for free these days. And, people follow just like sheep, believing everything she says.


Do you remember, a few years ago, when there was a rash of break-ins at Buckingham Palace, and the Queen woke up a few mornings to find a stranger in her boudoir - or at least close to it? We got such a big kick out of that. Ho, ho, ha, ha, ha, all that security, and one of her faithful subjects decides to have morning tea with Her Majesty. How could that happen. Ha, ha, ha, ha.

It isn't so funny when people manage to waltz into a State Dinner uninvited in this country, is it?


The members of the Senate want to have it both ways on Healthcare Reform, it seems. They want to pass a bill, but they don't want to give up the million$ of dollar$ they get from the insurance, healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. That's why it's taking so long. So, we'll probably see a bill that's cobbled together with half-measures and that leaves out several million Americans.

Then, it goes back to the House of Representatives, where it is merged, somehow, with their bill and what we finally get will be a fine mess, but it'll be a start. Hope springs eternal.

Stay tuned.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who's thinking like this!!!! You tell 'em!!!

Jay said...

"And, people follow just like sheep, believing everything she says."

And then those very same people turn around and call Obama supporters "Obamabots." It's really strange.

Olga said...

Amen, sister!!
(Of course, we don't expect to see anything of Sarah here in VT.)

You nailed every one of them, good post :)

I liked your poem, when I first heard about the Tiger thing, my hubby and I looked at each other and said "ok, we like him because he's a good golfer and we enjoy watching him." But it gets harder with each new thing :)

kenju said...

Love the poem. Tiger is just proving himself to be a fallible man, like most of the rest of them.....LOL

Betty said...

Kay: I suspect there are a lot of people thinking like us.

Jay: "Strange" is definitely the word for them.

Olga: Hello, and welcome to the blog. You may yet see Sarah in Vermont. She's cutting a wide swath, as we say in the south.

Looking to the Stars: Things just seem to be getting worse and worse for poor Tiger.

kenju: Thanks. I like to try a little playful verse every now and then. Someone mentioned that we seem to be putting all the blame on Tiger and letting the women slide. Good point. They are every bit as bad as he is, I think. No victims, here.

Margaret Hall said...

Nice poetry, Betty...~!!Now, isn't he pathetic??? I guess money just gets them anyone they choose! And, Palin...ackkkkk~!! Everytime I see her, I want to scream! Think she has EVER combed out that top knot?

oklhdan said...

Right on Betty....I'm not sure why we are so fascinated by the transgressions of Tiger Woods. Sarah was in my town last week but I stayed home! I'm with you..I'd rather read Helen's review of the book. Working in the health care field I am anxious to see just what we end up with in health care reform.

Betty said...

Margaret Lavonn Hall: Thanks. Unlike the silly media types, I don't think Sarah Palin will be the Republican's nominee, but she could be a spoiler.

oklhdan: I'm anxious to see what the Senate comes up with on health care, too. I'm sure it'll be a mess, but, maybe the final bill will be better.

Tincanman said...

Excellent observations and points, Betty. I fully agree.

Deanna said...

So you say you made a special trip to shake Ms. Palin's hand? ;)

Tiger is a dumb ass.

Betty said...

Tincanman: Thanks.

Deanna: Very funny. Yes, Tiger's nuthin' but a hound dog.

I don't know why I am shocked at the demise of Woods! It seems I never learn we all have feet of clay.
