Friday's Follies

Bacteria is the only culture some people have

The Presidential Dream Ticket Has Been Determined: That dream ticket that has been discussed by pundits during the nomination process has finally been identified. You heard it here first. Senator Obama came on strong. He is intelligent, charismatic, honorable, forthright, and deeply spiritual. Those qualities apparently make him a poor choice. The American public does not want a leader with such qualities. The current administration has proven that. Bumbling, stumbling, and hacking up the English language works. Power Uncle behind the throne gets it. Arrogance is a winner. But our new dream ticket has another set of gifts: arrogance for sure, pomposity, a sprinkle of mean, slanting and outright lying, unfair and imbalanced. Ladies and Gentlemen I give you the Independent dream ticket: Clinton and O’Reilly.

Dang Me, Dang Me, I think I’ll take a rope and hang me: Hollywood Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey had the goods on at least two politicos. It ended both their careers. She refused to discuss who else might be listed in her little black book. She was found hanging in a shed behind her mother’s house, apparently a suicide victim. But could it have been a hit staged to look like suicide? Problem with that theory is that her customers seem to be from the party that loves conspiracy theories. No mud to throw on the other guys so we could have heard the last of this one. Or not.

She Stooped to Conquer: Hard to imagine Granny as a swinger. Although she’s no Monica Lewinsky or Gennifer Flowers, Barbara Walters admitted to Oprah that she was the other woman for several years. She, a young reporter on the make, so to speak, became the concubine of he, Senator Edward Brooke, a Republican from Massachusetts and the first African American to be popularly elected to the Senate. Walters claimed she was “infatuated.” Does the affair compare with the peccadilloes of a former president? Close, but no cigar.

Must Be All that Florida Sunshine: Rote learning is defined as doing a task over and over until it is mastered. An example is memorizing one’s times tables. Stephanie Ragusa, a 28-year-old middle school math teacher in Tampa, Florida apparently subscribes to using the rote method. She was arrested for the third time for having sex with a student. She allegedly had sex with one of the teen victims at least 20 times. He must have been a slow learner. The Hillsborough School District in Tampa is the same one that had a previous teacher-student sex scandal with blond bombshell Debra LaFave. Wonder if there is prayer in that district’s schools.
