Ladies…..and…..Gentlemen….(Part II)

January 27, 2009

How time flies when you’re having fun. I had no idea it had been three weeks since we last visited the D.C. circus until an email reminded me I had promised a re-visit and where was it? I tried the lame excuse about an Israeli invasion into Gaza and a little item known as an inauguration last week but that didn’t fly. After all, the show must go on. And go on it did:

As predicted three weeks ago, Dirty Harry Reid was forced to fold his hand and Roland Burris officialy became the junior Senator from the state of Illionis on Jan, 15, 2009. In a lame attempt to cover for Reid, Dick Durbin (D-Ill) defended the initial denial to seat Burris and that it was Burris’s acquisition of adequate certification papers that “made all the difference”. Yeh, right Dick, now can I have another of what you’re smokin? See the source and full story at:

The Hill

One chapter of the Blago Files closes another opens. While State Senators opened his impeachment trial in Springlfield yesterday, our favorite clown went on a national blab fest. The list was impressive, Good Morning America, The View (the most blabfest appropriate mind you), Nightline, and the venerable Larry King. (Not to be shut out, Geraldo did get some “man on the street” face time with the Great Blago. Geraldo-Blago)
BUT the best of the day is not an insightful question from one of the “journalists” he granted time to, no, it comes from the man himself. When asked by Cynthai McFadden of Nightline: “Are you a dirty politician?” His reply is, well, priceless: “No, I’m a very honest politician and I see myself — and you can laugh and call this delusional — but when all the facts come out you, will see that I’m right. This is a modern-day Frank Capra story. You remember those old movies? Those black and white movies with Jimmy Stewart and Gary Cooper? The guy who was siding with the little guy, trying to fight for them, create more opportunities for them and protect them from big, powerful forces? Well, that’s my story. It’s a modern day version of it.

Really Rod? A modern day Capra story? You just went from Bozo Blago to NimRod Rod. You truly have crossed from audacity to asinine.

I refuse to give “The View” an inkling of credibility but you can see more at the “Nightline” and “Larry King Live” links below:


According to politico44, Leon Panetta’s confirmation hearing for directorship of the CIA has been indefinitely delayed. The reason? He doesn’t yet have all his paperwork submitted. And THIS is the guy Obama thinks is the absolute, must have to direct a key component in the war on terror? (Oh I’m sorry, we don’t call it a war anymore now do we? Sorry, my bad.)

The House is still the House. No news on Charlie Rangell’s numerous ethics and tax lapses. (But should the tax thing really matter any more for anyone? I mean if the new Treasury Secretary doesn’t have to worry about them why should anyone else?)
Henry Waxman was seen with uncontrollable drooling yesterday when Obama announced he was ordering the EPA to re-visit the issue of state mandated emission standards. There’s no regulation Waxman has ever disliked, especially if it protects the “environment” (translated his campaign cash) over “business” (jobs).
And dear Nancy was strutting it proud Sunday with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. Frau Pelosi is famous for defining what a good stimulus bill would be: “timely, targeted and temporary.”
Here’s just one “do as I want, not as I say” reversal from the interview:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus?
PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children’s health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those – one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.

Yes folks, THAT dribble came from no less than our very own Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, I certainly don’t mind women in power but PLEASE can we require at least ONE active brain cell? For a good laugh/cry/cry/laugh, the trascript is at:


Yeppers, D.C. has always been a little on the nutty side, but this is truly letting the inmates run the asylum. Wouldn’t bother me if it was just their babble, I’m always looking for easy material. No, what bothers me is that she and Harry don’t just have the keys to the chambers, they have the keys to the vault. A vault that’s empy of substance, full of I.O.U.’s and no end in sight.

I think this circus is gonna need a bigger tent.
