Lame joke deleted. Strange how something can seem so entertaining until one clicks ‘post’.
Apropos recent comments . . .
Went to the Apple Temple and thus new gizmos in the Bunker tonight. Will be back to posting later this weekend. In interim, Happy Holidays and best wishes to all our merry little band !
Tweet is on his 5th day of Weiner squalor.
Tweety’s as much if not more dishonest than AW. Tweety feigning he doesn’t know anything about ‘so-called phone sex’, ‘instant messaging’ etc. pretending to be outraged. American cable is appalling.
Today we walked into a local retail fixture. The senior management were openly discussing with customers their fear of a coming Great Depression. And that’s inside the Imperial City to Mr. & Ms. Disposable Income.

I think Sarah Palin proved herself to be — I think she’s proven herself to be profoundly stupid. Her inability to answers the questions of Katie Couric, her inability of even now to explain if she ever reads anything . . .
Her absolute failure to begin studying and get serious about running for president. She has shown no effort to doing any homework or understanding issues about the economy or science or the world. No effort and she’s running for president? I don’t believe she would be at all helpful to our republic. I hope she doesn’t run for our good.”

Three junior high kids fighting in a lunch room ‘liberal’ pundits fighting. Twitter shows its worth.
Was going to post tonight until learned from Huck that Natalie Portman is pregnant. Suddenly have lost all will. Oh the humanity . . .
