Pushing back the frontiers of the National Socialist Workers Party……


Why did Obama ditch the press corps on Tuesday, ostensibly to attend a non-existent soccer game at Sidwell-Friends?


Why did Oprah lie about poverty and sex abuse in her autobiography?  And is it true about her “relationship” with Diane Sawyer?  Who wants to know?


And, why weren’t Great Britain and Israel, our two most reliable allies in attendance at that dog and pony show in DC this week?  It is a curious state of affairs when relations with our major democratic allies are all wobbly at once…..


HR 1388 PASSED!  We will spend $20,000,000 to move Hamas members/supporters into the US and provide them with better benefits than our seniors are getting.  Don’t you just love Congress!


The White House phone rang at 3:00 am.  Nobody answered.  When Poland lost its leaders in a plane crash in Russia, British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown issued a statement.  French President Nicholas Sarkozy issued a statement.  Nothing from Obama - guess they couldn’t wake him up.

Marvelous Mary’s Mirthful Murmurings……………….


Jeb Bush began giving political interviews Thursday, spurring rumors he may run for president. The talk radio crowd was overjoyed to see him. Conservatives are like alcoholics in their persistent delusion that the next Bush will turn out differently


President Obama met with Queen Elizabeth. He was the 11th U.S. President the Queen has met with, and the first one where she spent the entire meeting clutching her purse


My favorite Bible fable is the one where everyone loafs and fishes.


Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs.


If it wasn't for Venetian blinds, it would have been curtains for all of us.

Texas makes me think of the old slogan "Remember the Alamo." It seems that during that battle, the guy in charge of the whole thing put his wife, of all people, on the battle line. She was shot by the enemy, shattered her patella, and had to be removed from the front line. After the fighting was over, she divorced her husband, and sued for Alamo knee

There are only four words in the English language which end in 'dous': tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous.


There are only two words in the English language that have all five vowels in order: 'abstemious' and 'facetious.'

That’s it for this week from your embedded community organizer, still circling the Woodbine Beltway, looking for the route to Absurdia, the principle city of The People’s Democratik Republik of Absurdistan and just 30 kilometers (look it up!) from where the Kenyan born President Obama signed a historic treaty with the Russian president today. Not everyone's happy about it. It was a "summit between a powerful communist leader and the president of Russia

But, on the other hand…………..


Remember, people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions.  You may have a heart of gold -- but so does a hard-boiled egg!
