Since Frank is obviously too busy changing diapers and trying to remember what it felt like to sleep, I figure someone ought to step in to amuse you folks for awhile, so here’s my poor imitation of a “Random Thoughts” post for you to play with. Now, be careful not to cut yourself on the sharp edges of my wit (or is that the rough edges of my unrefined attempts at humor)!
• I used to fantasize about living to see the day the Democrat caucus in Congress was so small, they could hold a party convention in a phone booth! After reading stories the last few weeks about polls showing that so many Democrats, including such vile and long-thought-to-be-permanently-unbeatable Democrat leaders as Barney Frank, John Dingell, Harry Reid, Russ Feingold, and Steny Hoyer (among others) were in serious trouble, I actually thought for one brief, shining moment, that my dream may actually have been on the verge of coming true!… Then I became disheartened when I realized that, alas, it was never going to happen… there’s no such thing as a phone booth anymore!
•Who says Dick Blumenthal has no idea how to create a job? If you ask me, he seemed to be making serious progress during that debate last week at getting Linda McMahon hired as a United States Senator!
•You’ve got to admit, God has a pretty good sense of humor. First, he gets the people of the Orlando, Florida area to elect a man who is, quite possibly, the most toxic, evil, maniacal dirtbag ever to serve in the U.S. Congress in Alan Grayson. Then, when the man who bears a striking resemblance to the Devil comes up for re-election 2 years later, he finds himself running against a man named Daniel Webster. Did Stephen Vincent Benét own a crystal ball?
•Speaking of Krystal Ball… I don’t think that’s what the old song meant by “reindeer games”… but I could be wrong!
•Krystal Ball? Seriously??? Good job, parents! Real clever! I’m sure she never got teased in school or anything. She fit right in with her classmates: Bobby Pinn, Mike Raphone, Rob Banks, Phil McCracken, Jean Splicer, Shirley Eugeste, Patty Khake. Anita Mann…
•I wish people would leave Obama alone about all the golf he’s been playing the last couple of years. After all, since O.J. got locked up in the pokey in Las Vegas, somebody had to continue his search for the “real killers” on every golf course in America!
•By the way, I think I have a great campaign slogan for Obama’s re-election effort: “‘Fore!’ more years!”
