FrontRunners & Dropouts: In our last outing, I mentioned that many U.S. citizens have already tired of the current political slugfest that going on live and in color almost 24/7. So far the body count includes the drop outs Biden, Richardson, Tancredo, Vilsack, Brownback, Gilmore,Thompson, Dodd and this week the fallout should get higher after the Michigan primary. Meanwhile, those at the top of the heap, keep on heaping it on each other with negative ads, somewhat negative attacks, broad statements and those mysterious 527 groups who throw rocks on behalf of their candidates. Then, they staunctly deny that they represent them. It's the big top world of rock-em, sockem "Let's elect the leader of the Free World." If didn't register earlier this month, then you are just out of luck for the Super Duper Primary on Feb. 5. If you are poltical junkie or just want to see what the hoopla is all about, I would like to recommend a great site, http://www.squidoo.com/ Of course each candidate has his or her savvy site but this one has a bullseye on it including a Bill Richardson Diner clock for purchase. Oh well, Happy hunting....
Bouncing "O" get's Bounced: Talking about tounge waggin, it's Rosanne Barr's shooting from the hip Tah Tah while somewhat dissing Miss Oprah about her political juxtaposition to that other "O," Barack Obama. On her website, Barr takes OW to task and calls it like she see's it or sort of anyway. I guess since she has nothing else to do and no one is calling her for any serious work, she's got to do something with her life. She's entitled to her opinion and free speech just like everyone else. So take it for what's it worth and discuss it amongst yourselves. Here's a bit of her madness for your consideration:
Barack is an empty suit selling "hope" in lieu of Truth
Oprah helped to elect Arnold Schwarzenegger I have no doubt that she voted her purse by doing this, as she is a large land owner in California, and that ilk fears Dems because they do not want to pay their "fair share" of Cali tax.
- Oprah has given us Dr. Phil. If that was not offensive enough to decent thinking people, now she brings us Obama. He has no ideas, no plan and nothing to add other than the cynical pacification of the masses with bedtime stories about hope.?– Oprah, you play the race card and the gender card too.
- You are a closeted republican and chose Barack because you do not like other women who actually stand for something to working American Women besides glamour, angels, Hollywood and dieting!
- It is historical that Oprah beloved of women, chooses a flashy man with small credentials over a seasoned woman politician with 35 years of experience…and sells that to the female demographic who look to her for inspiration!
