First off, Chip Saltsmann. The candidate for the chairmanship of the RNC sent around a Holiday CD that reminds us all, yet again, of why the Republican Party is having such a hard time these days. Here’s one of the songs (brought to us via You Tube) …
I am not surprised that the RNC would have its head up its butt … but the truly amazing thing is how FAR up its butt that old GOP head can get!
Meanwhile, in a turn of events that is probably quite shocking for President Bush (although we suspect he is unaware of it), recent polls indicate that 3/4 of the American people are glad to see the Prez go. We hate him – we hate him! An even larger percentage hope that he pretty much disappears and is never heard from again. (I actually hope that we hear a LOT about him and his cronies in the coming years, as they are indicted and tried for crimes they committed while in office.)
And I have to say that it kinda bugs me that we, as a nation, are not doing some soul-searching as we repudiate the guy. I certainly don’t mind the repudiation – but we are a populace that elected Dubya twice. Okay – once – and maybe not even that. But the fact that he ever got enough votes to even make it close – either time – is an indictment of us – not just him. I hope that we have learned something over the past eight years – and will start listening to the angels of our better natures as we cast our votes (rather than the fears and hatreds stirred up by “mongerers” of various stripes – like the dude running for the RNC chair – just for instance.)
I read on Politico that Jeb Bush is looking like a candidate for the Florida Senate. Enough already. Really. Enough.
Here in NH, the movie-going at Red River has been especially enjoyable of late, with Slumdog Millionaire before Christmas, and Doubt last night. Both were excellent – and I was particularly blown away by Meryl Streep’s nuanced performance. Pat Summitt in a habit … not someone to mess with, that’s for sure!
Okay – so I promised another clue in the very exciting JordanCornblog secret word contest. Hmmmm. Don’t want to give it away Let’s just say that when you hear what the word is, you’ll realize that it’s something that JordanCornblog and Boltgirl are pretty much on the same page about – and Princess Sparkle Pony wouldn’t even wave a sparkly hoof at. Good luck – I’m sure it’s right on the tip of your tongue!
