Politics, Economy, Health Care

Anything worth taking seriously is worth making fun of.

Dick Cheney: A Buffoon’s buffoon: From the Darth Vader of the Bush administration comes yet another stupid comment. Lon.... er, Dick Cheney was commenting about incest in his family background. The question will no doubt be asked by Karl Rove, “When two Cheney’s divorce, are they still brother and sister?” I hope the Cheney inbreeding doesn’t hurt the chances of his cousin, Democratic nominee Barack Obama. It shouldn’t. People have to realize that every family has their Dick in a woodpile somewhere.

When the Beauty develops warts she’s abandoned: Nothing was pretty or showed more status than a shiny new jet-black giant Cadillac Escalade sitting in your driveway, unless it was an ever bigger giant Ford Excursion. The once huge Suburban became a pee-wee next to last decade’s cruisers. Four dollar per gallon gasoline changed all that. With a cost of $ 120 per fill-up lasting less than a week, thousands of studs are dumping their dreamboats in favor of the nerdy little wallflower. Dorkie is the new Darling. The value of SUVs has dropped faster than the housing market. Little cars are more popular than teen brides in a polygamist complex. Where’s our old Yugo when we need her?

It’s all in your head, Senator: Senator Ted Kennedy was one man who hoped he’d have his head examined and find nothing there. But that was not the case. A growth on the brain took both the Senator and his constituents by surprise. But in typical Kennedy fashion, instead of curling up and feeling sorry for himself he decided to lose his mind – at least the part that was cancerous. All indications are that the surgery was successful and he’ll be back to his crotchety liberal self in no time. The Duke of Dartmouth became the Darling of Durham during his surgery. We raise a glass to his improved health.

First you say you will, and then you won’t: Then you say you do and then you don’t. Such is the theme song of the Hillary Clinton camp. She has been like a Dutch uncle who just won’t leave. Finally when the math seems inevitable that Senator Obama will be the Democratic nominee, Hillary’s camp reportedly was ready to concede, or not – although she insisted that an election against a phantom opponent made her the winner, and her surrogate Ickes wailed that phantom delegates that never existed were stolen from her. If you repeat a lie often enough plenty of people believe it.

Do you hear what I hear: Sure the economy is slow. Lots of people are hurting. Some are more creative than others attempting to lure dollars to their doorsteps. John Patterson of Louisiana is suing apple computer because they didn’t warn him that playing his ipod too loud could cause hearing loss. A housing developer in the San Diego area is offering “buy one, get one free” homes. Sales of indoor gardens and home gardens are at an all time high. A pinch in the pocket can change a lifestyle.
