The Book to Nowhere: Thanks, but No Thanks

From POLITICS DAILY:

Republican Sen. John McCain, who lifted former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin out of obscurity to be his vice presidential partner last year, isn’t saying much about Palin’s new tell-all, blame-all book. But Steve Schmidt, who managed the campaign and is a chief target in the book, doesn’t think much of “Going Rogue.”

Electile Dysfunction

From CITYPAGES:

Speaking before the Minnesota Republican State Central Committee this weekend, Norm Coleman assured those gathered that his unwillingness to recognize the recount tally and a District Court election ruling has nothing to do with him, his political career, or even the Republican Party.

Rather, his refusal to acknowledge reality is due to his love of America.

Back to the Future!

McCainworld, 2013:

After efforts to pressure the Government in Sudan over Darfur failed again in the U.N. Security Council, the United States, acting in concert with a newly formed League of Democracies, applied stiff diplomatic and economic pressure that caused the government of Sudan to agree to a multinational peacekeeping force, with NATO countries providing logistical and air support, to stop the genocide that had made a mockery of the world’s repeated declaration that we would “never again” tolerant such inhumanity. Encouraged by the success, the League is now occupied with using the economic power and prestige of its member states to end other gross abuses of human rights such as the despicable crime of human trafficking.–John McCain, May 15, 2008

Chimpy and Nicky Sittin’ In a Tree….

From Time:

Certain things appear identical on both sides of the Atlantic these days: France and America seem to be friends again; warm relations and mutual esteem have replaced nearly five years of diplomatic disdain; and presidents George Bush and Nicolas Sarkozy may start having regular sleep-overs if they become any better friends.

Ooh, la la!

Original DVD cover.
To the tune of Rosie (from Bye, Bye Birdie), lyrics by Lee Adams, and music by Charles Strouse.
(Sing along with Chimpy and Nic with a little help from youtube!)

Now my life is rosy,
Since I met Sarkozy,
With my sweet Sarkozy,
How could I be blue?
Hand in hand we’ll mosey,
Me and Nic Sarkozy,
We are now so cozy,
So we’ll tell Mahmoud, “Fuck you!”

You Want Freedom Fries With that Hotdog, Pickles?

From Independent Online:

Cecilia Sarkozy’s decision to bow out of a picnic with the president of the United States this weekend is the latest proof of the French first lady’s unpredictable, even rebellious take on her new role.

Yep, Chimpy and Pickles threw a big ol’ barbecue, and the First Lady of France didn’t show up! 😆
