There's someone else who never admits he was wrong about anything and never shows remorse for his decisions. He's the guy who currently occupies the White House. He calls himself The Decider. Which he is. It's just that most of the decisions have been boneheaded and he refuses to make note of that.
And that's another reason why McCain and Bush will stay in Iraq until they have achieved victory. Otherwise, they'd have to admit they fucked up. 100,000 military and civilian casualties is a good decision and they intend to add more bones to the pile until the Iraqis finally get it through their thick skulls that we liberated them.
So, if you want McCain, you are stuck with Palin. The Maverick has decided.
SOMETHING ELSE THAT BUGS ME ABOUT AS MUCH
Kermit asks the musical question, "Why are there so many songs about rainbows?"
Well, there aren't, Kermit. Except for the one in which you sing that inquiry, I can't think of one damn other tune. Oh, sure, there's that other song you're thinking of that Judy Garland sings, but you know what? It's not about rainbows! It's about some place over the rainbow. The rainbow is just some colorful wall of Berlin. An obstacle to seeing trouble melt like lemon drops. There's an old country song called Rainbow Stew. Know what it's about? Stew!
So, there, Kermit. My friend. I suggest you change that lyric to "Why is this the only song about rainbows?"
Friday night. 8pm. iO. Be there. See me. Touch me. Feel me.
THE BS NEWS QUIZ OF THE DAY
Yesterday, I asked...
"Third grade teacher Donna Coulter of Kissimmee Charter Academy was recently fired for asking her students to do what?"
50% said "Tell their parents to vote Democrat"
- And to punch the hole in the vote card ALL THE WAY THROUGH!
25% said "Buy her artwork"
- It wouldn't have been bad, except she draws like a 30-year-old.
No one said "Wash her car"
25% got it right with "Give her massages"
According to WFTV in Orlando, in Donna Coulter's third grade class, each student had a job. It could be cleaning the room, organizing books or taking out the trash, but one task really upset parents."One of the jobs she was giving was to give her massages," said parent Stacey Vazquez. While school administrators did not want to go on camera, they did tell Eyewitness News that effective Tuesday Coulter no longer works there. They sent home a note to parents saying, "Due to unforeseen circumstance, Ms. Coulter will no longer be teaching your student in the third grade."
I think this is very short-sighted thinking on the parents and school administrator's part. This is Florida. Orlando, no less. These kids need to learn vocational skills early. The real estate market is crap right now. Jobs at the amusement parks are only for slave who can smile. Learn to give massages, and there's more work opportunity. And there's always a happy ending.
