Lowering the Bar

Seems that Princess Sarah Palin is a little pissed off at that blue-blooded Barbara Bush. I think that Princess had better realize that she’s feuding with perhaps the grizzliest of mamas when she picks on Babs (or Bar, as Poppy calls her). Being blue-blooded has taught Babs to be as nasty as she wants to be while wearing a smile. Princess could learn a thing or two from her. Here’s a look back at Babs. George H. W. Poppy Bush and Babs had their hands full with Chimpy and Little Jebbie…

“I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley.”

I just read that Leslie Nielsen, one of my favorite actors, died at the age of 84.  I hope he won’t mind if I recycle some of his movies that I already recycled.  I had 2 versions of The Naked Gun, one with Fred Thompson, who was gunnin’ for votes

Hoops Oops

From 44 at The Washington Post:

A holiday hoops outing with friends and family on Friday turned a bit rough for President Obama, who ended the game with a visit to the White House Medical Unit for a dozen stitches in his lip.

The Hammer Comes Down on the Hammer

From Technorati:

“It’ll never stand up on appeal,” a defiant but obviously shaken Tom DeLay told reporters moments after his recent conviction for money laundering and conspiracy. [...] DeLay’s crime ripped a hole in Texas democracy. It’s serious. His conviction carries a penalty of up to life in prison, though no one really expects him to do hard time. As a politician, however, he’s deader than a truck-squashed armadillo.

DeLay spent his early life as an exterminator. He entered local politics in 1978, eventually rising to become Republican House Majority Leader and earning the nickname, “The Hammer.” In 2005 he resigned in disgrace after close ties to another politics felon, Jack Abramoff, and after this set of charges was filed. He has pompously proclaimed his innocence ever since, while quietly using trick after trick in a cowardly attempt to put off the trial.

2012?

Okay, kids, I just got home, and I didn’t have anything planned. I dipped into the old American Street files, and I thought we might look at a few of the possible candidates for President in 2012. (And, no, I won’t include Princess Sarah Palin!)

Food for Thought: Slimming Down Incentive Edition, continued…

Yesterday, we looked to Lindseypoo Graham to inspire us to lose all that weight we gained from eating all that good stuff over the last week. I thought we’d look at Lindseypoo over the years to see how he got to be where he is now.

Lindseypoo has always been a fashion-plate, even when he was just a baby…

Food for Thought: Slimming Down Incentive Edition

Well, kids, we spent all week eating and drinking, and I don’t know about you, but I feel bloated as all get-out.  I just put in some time on the treadmill, because I want to be able to fit in the latest stylish fashions.  I thought we could all use a little inspiration so we can stay on our diets and continue with our work-out routines.  What better inspiration could there be than the person who wears clothes so well.  I give you…Lindseypoo!

I ask you, who else could pull off a look like this?

Anyone else would look hippy!
