Obama: "Not talking…is ridiculous"

My readers have better memories than I do. Today, I got this in the mail from an reader who asks to be identified as "A Product of Pittsburgh Steelworkers":I had written to you before the election about how then Candidate Obama would no longer talk to a television station in Florida because he didn't like some of the questions they asked Joe Biden. See your article Obama: Yes to Iran, No to WFTV from October 2008.But even I would never have imagined that he would carry this over to an … [Read more...]

An Exceedingly Interesting Round-up

You will like this round-up of links. No, seriously, you will; it is full of chewy, satisfying round-uppy goodness, and contains no artificial sweeteners, and I will fully resist the urge to fall into my cowgirl lingo of yore. Some religion, some politics, some gossipy stuff.Bookworm: is wondering if Obama is an atheist:Obama’s White Houses instinctively uses the same wishy-washy language atheists use: “My heart is with you.” “My thoughts are with you.” “I send you my wishes.” No prayer … [Read more...]

Nice Deb wants your dreams…

Taking a page from the left, Nice Deb is asking if anyone on the right is dreaming about President Obama (or, of course, Rush Limbaugh, his evil nemesis).Apparently, I am not the only "conservative" woman dreaming of Limbaugh, but our dreams are very different than the dreams of Obama. Not surprising.Frankly, after hearing the MSM pooh-pooh the brouhaha in the UK press over Michelle Obama's "touching the person" of Queen Elizabeth II, and daydreaming that the press had - just once - treated … [Read more...]

And now, the Poster!

I told you about my amusing Sandra Bullock/Rush Limbaugh dream.Another flashback - this time Sandra Bullock. It’s 10-12 years earlier and she is a smart reporter trying to get out of the shadow of a dumb-but-perky American Sweetheart NewsDitz. Gets a line on a way to infiltrate Rush Limbaugh’s workplace (which, being ten years ago, my brain put in NY) and figures an “insider” expose detailing Limbaugh’s maniacal management and dubious empire will get her noticed and make her America’s New “SMAR … [Read more...]

Bullock, Baseball, Limbaugh

You ever have one of those dreams that's so delicious and fun that you hate to wake up, and when you do, you think to yourself, "wow, that was GREAT! I want to finish that dream! I want to videotape that dream, so I can dream it again!"I had such a dream - just awoke from it (yeah, okay, I was sleeping in the middle of the day. My work was done, my insomnia never lets me get a good night's sleep and my husband was off on an adventure, so I took a nap! Sue me!)Anyway - this dream - I don't … [Read more...]

Rush, Obama and Charity

We all know there is no way President Obama will take up Rush Limbaugh's offer for a live debate on his radio broadcast.Or is there?In the comments section, Gayle (comment #21) made a brilliant suggestion: Why not urge Rush's tens of millions of listeners to pledge $10 or $20 each, to go to a charity of the president's choice, if he will debate?Of course, leaving the charity up to the president, may not make everyone happy. He may, for instance, decide have it all donated to ACORN, for … [Read more...]

Limbaugh and Viagra, now the kiddies snicker

Okay, so, Rush had Viagra in his bag and his doctor didn't prescribe it in his name because if you're Rush Limbaugh (or Bill Clinton or whomever) and you know you have a gazillion childish guns pointed at you - at all times - you'd rather not have some pharmacist blab in some internet forum that you're using Viagra, or herpes medicine or genital wart salves or whatever. Perfectly understandable.Sadly, now we'll be treated to a few days of people sniggering and making snide, adolescent jokes … [Read more...]

“Illegals” hysteria & the place I can’t go

I had doctor's appointments most of the day, and while I was in the car I kept switching around on the radio. I pulled up Rush and couldn't listen more than a few minutes. What I heard was a disappointing, strange, paranoia-feeding rant on how the "moderate Republicans and Democrats in the Senate" have a deliberate plan afoot to "enlarge the number of victims and people who will need welfare services" so as to "enlarge government..."It's all a plot and a conspiracy, you see...nothing could … [Read more...]

Naughty dreams and Rush Limbaugh

Just got reminded of this and thought I'd share it with you, because it's pretty funny, and I am having one of those sleepless nights.I had a friend who was also struggling with insomnia. One night she finally went to bed early and got into a really good sleep - but it didn't last. She called me up in the wee small hours, wide awake and sounding upset."What woke you up?" I asked."I had a sex dream about Rush Limbaugh, and it scared the hell out of me! I might never go back to sleep … [Read more...]
