Food for Thought

I didn’t feel like picking out an old post to rerun, so I thought I might do a compilation of food products we’ve seen here at the Raisin.  Since the Raisin started during the Chimpy administration, I thought we’d start with some of products from back then.  Speaking of Chimpy, let’s begin with a hearty George W. Bush breakfast…

Don’t Dance, Don’t Tell

I just got home, and I have nothing prepared, so I’m dusting off another American Street oldie goldie. Since Captain Underpants is being a total dick about DADT, I picked out a post about him. It was originally posted on March 19, 2008.

Hey kids! Anyone else watch Dancing With the Stars? Yeah, I admit it, I have watched every season. I am just getting over the nightmares I had last season after seeing the flesh on Wayne Newton’s face stretched so tight that, every time he raised his eyebrows, his manboobs jiggled. So anyway, I tune in to watch this season, and there’s Priscilla Presley with so much botox and collagen in her face that she has to wear this around her neck! Seriously, these people are so friggin’ rich, and they still can’t afford a plastic surgeon who doesn’t make people look like The Joker from Batman? She couldn’t even smile!!! I’m not kidding! I bet she has to eat through a straw, because I don’t think her jaw can move enough to chew! Seriously, you have to watch just to see her face!

But I digress. This isn’t about Dancing With the Stars, Mr. Danke Schoen, or Elvis’s ex. So what is this about? Damned if I remember. Hold on, I think I wrote it down somewhere……Oh, yeah!! It’s about Captain Underpants John McCain! Dancing John McCain!
It all started back in April of 2007. I reported on Captain Underpants’s John McCain’s trip to Baghdad. That’s when I first spotted his propensity for dancing.

(You can find a larger version and the song he was dancing to here. Go ahead, sing along. I’ll wait for you.)

Trip the light fantastic with me, and I will show you more of Captain Underpants’s John McCain’s twinkletoes, as well as some advice I have for him.

The Wild, Wild West

From THINK PROGRESS:

Republican Allen West was just elected to the House of Representatives in Florida’s 22nd district, defeating two-term Democratic Rep. Ron Klein. His first move since being elected is rather strange: he has hired a conservative talk radio host, Joyce Kaufman, to be his congressional chief of staff.

Pulp Affliction

From Bill Press at THE HILL:

[…] I do not hate George W. Bush. But I still disagree with most of his policies, I still think he was a mediocre president — and I’m not going to change my mind just because he’s out there trying to sell a self-serving book.

Hey, kids, my hand is still being a pain in the…hand, but our buddy and fellow Raisinette, Tengrain, had a challenge over at Mock, Paper, Scissors that I couldn’t resist.  I didn’t overexert myself.  I just took some old posters and put them in the template of Chimpy’s Decision Points (because he’s the Deciderer).  Make sure to check out all the dust covers at MPS. They’re hilarious!

A Jarring Recollection

From THE DAILY BEAST:

Undoubtedly the most startling moment in Matt Lauer’s conversation with George W. Bush came in the first five minutes of the interview, when Bush recounted his mother’s miscarriage—and how she had showed him the fetus in a jar.

“She says to her teenage kid, ‘Here’s a fetus,'” Bush recounted to Lauer, referring to himself in the third person. “There’s no question that it affected me,” Bush added.

With Friends Like These, the Rerun

While I’m dealing with an uncooperative hand that doesn’t lend itself to Photoshopping, I thought I’d post some stuff that I originally posted at American Street.   I read a story about Chimpy and Captain Underpants today, and I thought of this entry, which I posted back on May 7, 2008.  Scroll down, and read the story that I read today.

***********************************************

With Friends Like These….

Hey, kids, you know that old saying about how you are known by the company you keep? Well, it seems that Captain Underpants John McCain has been trying to distance himself from Chimpy George W. Bush, but I have uncovered evidence that they go way back and probably will always stick together. Let me show you the evidence.

The McBush McCain and the Chimpy Bush families have known each other for many, many years. In fact, I bet they go back to the time when dinosaurs and men walked the earth together!

Mandate? Not So Fast

From THINK PROGRESS:

In his post-election press conference this afternoon, President Barack Obama strongly rejected the idea that Republicans received a mandate to enforce their policies, despite their electoral gains, saying that “no person, no party has a monopoly on wisdom. … No one party will be able to dictate where we go from here. We must find common ground in order to make progress on some uncommonly difficult challenges.”
