Cross the line? Yes we can!


I used to feel kind of bad, poking fun at The One. But the bigger the dose, the badder the taste. There was this Boston Globe article over the weekend:

“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,’’ he told campaign aides when he was running for the White House. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that . . . I’m a better political director than my political director.’’

Ohhhhh…I really don’t like this man. I knew he was stuck on himself, but I didn’t realize he thought he was Barack Obama Sooper Genius. Maybe his staff isn’t letting him down, after all. Maybe he’s overruling them. With his mind.

Oh, and did you catch Kathleen Parker yesterday, pleading for more civility?

Kathleen, honey, we’ve been yelling obscenities at y’all this whole time. It’s just, now you can hear us.

He’s better at everything than you and I. Trouble is HE’S ON THE OTHER SIDE!

For having such a high opinion of himself, he sure is still a coward, blaming his protocol dilemma on George Bush. Still.

Submissive piddling! You got that right. Sheesh.

The 2010 elections can’t come soon enough. We need to lame-duckify this disaster asap. Carter 2.0 is far worse than I could have ever imagined. Worst president ever? Yes we can!

He really isn’t an American….and this bowing nonesense is proof positive…

You can ask anyone, any American… how to bow in Japanese…and they can tell you…

How do they know this?

Not from some obscure book or protocol….not from painstakingly reviewing hours and hours of footage of previous Presidents greeting Japanese emperors…

Who, raised in America, hasn’t seen Karate Kid?

What did Mr. Miyagi say to Daniel San about the bow?? Several times?

“Look eye!, always look eye!”

Obama really is an ignoramus ….

Civility my rosy rear end. I happened to meet Prince Akihito at the Tokyo American Club at a 4th of July celebration. Nod of the head, quick handshake will do you.

The TAC is right next door to the Soviet Embassy. Mooning the Soviets will however get you persona non status at the club rather quickly. Bastards, no sense of humor.

Masterful artwork (again), Madame Weez.

In the last 17 years we have had two Democratic presidents. The first had a big head on his..well..his little head and the current one has a big head on his big head.

It’s a wonder they don’t make a C-17 into Air Force One. I am sure he has a problem getting his cephalus maximus through the door of the 747.

Well, he’s certainly better at boot licking. I’ll give him that.

And yes, at getting wee weed up.

Steve, I’ll have you know I’ve been thrown out of some very fine establishments. 🙂

I’m just hoping they’ve forgotten about that little incident at the country club.

And that Obama boy is no Sir Winston when it comes to speech writing or even speech delivery. Doesn’t come close.

Would this be a good time to mention that Barry looks a little wee-wee’d up?

(I almost posted wee-WEED, but THAT would open a whole new can of worms. or maybe not….)

WHOOT! Auntie Weasel, the Bangerz ‘n Beanz showed up!! It’s so cute y’all – she has her own stamp ‘n everything. The bottom of it is little smudged tho and I can’t make out the slogan there. A little help please?

I’ll be sure to post a full report soon!

Heh. Did you think about the puddle pooling behind instead of in front? I mean, it fits and all, it’s just…you know, heh.

“Marca da Weasel” Enas. Which, for some reason, which is pidgin Portuguese for “the mark of the weasel” but of course that would actually be “marca da doninhas”. And no, I’m not Portuguese. But my first computer had a modem that picked up a local Portuguese radio station and would sit and chatter to itself in Portuguese. I got to like the sound of it.

I’m DELIGHTED it got there, at last! I was contemplating whether I should offer you and mongo a consolation prize. That means there’s hope for the haggis.

I don’t suppose Bangerz ‘n’ Beanz is on the menu, Chez Yorl, is it? Enas has lost upwards of 70 pounds, doctor’s orders, y’all.

Let’s see…Teddy died August 25. I got the thing in the mail within the week. I make that…ten weeks? Holy shit! They put your beanz on a boatz!

I didn’t really think about the physics of pee, Pups. I wasn’t going to put a puddle at all, but Uncle B told me it was too subtle. An idea so absurd in context it made milk shoot out my nose.

Yah according to the postmark it’s just under 11 weeks from your door to mine. Oh, and it’s 75 pounds now, but who’s counting? 😉 Bangerz ‘n’ Beanz is defintitely on the menu in the near future. I just need to look at the calories and carbs and make some room for it. Stay tuned!

Glad to hear the B&B arrived. A Brit friend was in Chi this weekend; I asked him if there were systemic problems for this sort of thing. He told me that US Customs will seize anything with meat in it, even if hyper-processed and hermetically sealed. But I guess they missed this.

Portuguese radio in New England? I know a little about the Portuguese community there (mainly, that it exists, which most Americans don’t know).

There’s a 1950 movie called Mystery Street, with Ricardo Montalban as a small-Massachusetts-town police detective… Which seems odd till the character is explained as Portuguese-American, i.e. out of that community.

What I didn’t know and am surprised by is that as late as the 1980s (I’m guessing that’s when you started modeming) there were still enough actual Lusophones around to support a radio station.

It may have been Spanish, which sounds similar to the ignorant (e.g., me), but I lived in a largely Portuguese neighborhood a the time, so I assumed.

The one line I remember hearing over and over was an ad for “Mundo dos Liqores” — which, Babelfish informs me disappointingly, is neither Spanish nor Portuguese for Liquor World. I don’t know what the hell it is, now that I’ve looked it up.

We also had, for whatever reason, a high proportion of Cape Verdeans in our neighborhood. Interesting people, them.

“I used to feel kind of bad, poking fun at The One.”

For God’s sake, why? Probably the biggest contributing factor to the buffoon’s narcissistic personality disorder is that he hasn’t been made fun of nearly enough in life.

And Войска ПВО, I am SO stealing that “cephalus maximus” bit.

Portuguese drives me nuts. It sounds like a retarded Frenchman speaking Spanish. My Dutch-speaking brother has the same problem with Afrikaans.

It’s ‘Mundo dos Licores’, which is no doubt where you came unglued. This does indeed mean ‘World of Booze’.

The puddle would definitely pool behind. I can’t see Obama as being anything other than retromingent.

Where was Kathleen Parker during the 8 years of Bush bashing? I didn’t see any whining about incivility then.

My mother best friend wore mink to the circus once (she was flirting with Jack “Murf the Surf” Murphy, but that’s another story). Sat in the front row and got severely retrominged-upon by a tiger.

And some sort of lynx did me the same at the Washington Zoo once. Was no accident. He stared intently at me for some minutes before turning around and pissing a Zorro sign on my chest. We wandered by the same cage forty five minutes later and he did it again.

I console myself that he was probably asking me to marry him in cat-speak.

And so does his wiseness blame Arizona’s 15th congressional district on the fools he hired, or the fool who hired them?

That is hilarious! Bravo! Obama is definitely all the above: boot-licker, ignoramus, etc. He’s quite the embarrassment to those of us that remember much better times.
