Just Another Random Monday v.2.1.10

The DoubleMint Twins edition!

     (All right, so those aren’t the real DoubleMint Twins, but whatever. It’s my blog and I’ll post whatever pics I want, so there! 🙂 )

So, you thought with no JARM last week you were getting off the hook, huh? No way, baby – it just means that this week is twice the pleasure and twice the fun!!!

* – I believe this pretty much sums CookieMaker’s perception of our marriage:

Is that my perception of our marriage? Well, no, of course not. I’m not saying she’s wrong, mind you, but perhaps just overstating things. A bit. Sorta. Kinda. Maybe.

*ahem* Let’s just move along, shall we?

* – I clipped this out of today’s paper for Cookiemaker. I’m pretty sure she’ll be looking at Little Man this way in about ten years or so:

* – well, it’s better than him making another movie, isn’t it?

* – I hope they don’t use this thing to stop you just for failure to wear a seatbelt!

* – whaddaya think, folks: Fresh Prince for Prez?

* – OK, I understand the brouhaha surrounding Tim Tebow’s upcoming pro-life commercial during the Super Bowl. I also understand the brouhaha surrounding a gay dating website also wanting air a commercial during the Super Bowl. What I don’t understand is if Tebow’s ad is going to be allowed to air, why isn’t the gay dating site’s?

* – so, if FoxNews isn’t a news organization, then why is it the most trusted source of news in the country?

* – so, if Obama was supposed to be this great uniter and champion of bipartisanship, why is he the most polarizing president ever?

* – wanna fact-check The One’s State of the Union speech (and/or the Republican response)? Go right here.

Note that link is CNN, folks. Not some “kooky right-wing nutjob” site – CNN.

* – speaking if the SotU, I noticed that B.O. called out to his fellow Dems about health care again. Now, lemme get this straight, one of the biggest reasons why the Left supposedly wants their version of health care reform to go through is because they’re worried about health care costs, right?

Well, what if the American people aren’t worried about health care costs?

Sounds ridiculous, I know. However, according to a survey printed on the front page of the January 19th, 2010 edition of USAToday, only 27.3% of the 1,003 adults questioned described their health insurance costs as “expensive.” 42.5% answered “fairly priced,” and 25.5% answered “low cost.”

(4.7% answered “don’t know”)

So, only roughly 1 in 4 Americans think their health care is too expensive, but we need to blow the system up and replace it with something that takes 2,000 pages to describe and will cost $2 trillion?!

* – speaking of fact-checking, just how much of a deficit did Obama inherit from Bush? And just how much has The One really increased the deficit since he’s taken over?

Here’s one take (again from CNN).

* – speaking of the SotU address and fact-checking, didn’t Obama say something about freezing spending and trying to reduce the deficit and blah-blah-blah? Think he was serious about that? Then why did he just submit a $3.83 trillion dollar budget for next year? A budget that will produce record deficits?

* – say, how’s that TARP working out for ya?

* – maybe those political bigwigs are starting to listen to the people, at least in one regard, anyway.

* – speaking of KSM, here’s a real-life preview of what his trial could wind up looking like.

* – “ba-da-bum-bum-bum – another one bites the dust“…

* – hey, guess who’s fault it is that Coakley lost to Brown last week?

That’s right – George W. Bush.

(what hasn’t this guy been blamed for yet?)

* – remember Lt. Col. Allen West? I posted a video of him in a JARM a couple of weeks ago. Well, he believes the GOP needs to embrace the principles of the late, great Dr. King.

* – I don’t know about you, but I sure am (and I don’t even watch him all that much).

  1. I don’t pay much attention to the analysis of the SOTU address because it’s always seemed like a rah-rah cheerleading event no matter who is at the podium.

    That being said, I was annoyed at one thing and disturbed at another.

    The annoyance came when the president said he had inherited a “projected” deficit coming up next year. How in the world can you claim that? You may have inherited a deficit your first year, but buck up and take responsibility for the following years.

    In my mind though, that annoyance is just that, petty and small compared to the disturbing moment when the president chided the supreme court. It made him look childish, unaware of protocol at all, and even worse, as if he is trying to unduly influence the 3rd arm of the checks & balances in our government. I’ve searched and searched for any other SOTU incident like this and can’t find one. Anybody?

  2. Olbermann was an a** when still a sporto. I’ve never thought he had the chops to be a real political commentator. I also might add that he’s the reason I watch NBC’s football broadcasts with the sound off.

  3. Kelly, I will cop to liking Olbermann when he was paired with Dan Patrick on SportsCenter.

    On MSNBC? Not so much.

    That being said, watching his reaction to Scott Brown winning in Massachusetts was awesome! 🙂
