So Michele Obachmann (as Letterman refers to her) won the Iowa straw poll
She reminded me of Georgie Bushie declaring a mandate
She said Iowa is a state of social conservatives and as such Iowa had spoken
This liberal believes it’s possible to be a social conservative and still not be bat shit crazy
I think all her win means is that the others have not yet spent enough millions to rally more asshats
How about a language lesson?
Submissive means - unresistingly or humbly obedient
Respect means - esteem for or a sense of the worth or excellence of a person
Michele was asked what she meant when she said she always submits to her pray away the gay husband and she said it meant they respected each other
Clearly she has read even less than Palin
Kudos to the reporter who asked the question as the knowledge seekers around him booed and hissed.
Note: If you Google submissive to check my definition be careful where you click, especially if you’re socially conservative
No not that, but maybe Michele's husband can pray away wrestling
Dear Network News …
The CWA and IBEW strike against Verizon enters its second week today
Could you try covering it!
I know the fascination with missing blond women is more than you can resist but please – just pass that on to Nancy Grace and cover a story that directly affects thousands of workers and their families
If you go to YouTube you can search ‘verizon strike news’ and find some decent coverage
And if you search ‘verizon scabs’ you’ll be entertained by videos of management trying to do a job they’re not trained to do and finally realizing how difficult the job is
Cherry pickers and overhead lines and explosive manholes – OH MY!
Among my favorites …
A CWA member singing “oh where oh where can the dial tone be” as two scabs try to restore service
A crowd of picketers hooting and hollering while a scab tries to drop an overhead line while looking like he’s lassoing a bull
I’m relieved that the encounters have been non-violent and hope it stays that way
The tension and anger is palpable
I have never seen my son so disappointed and angry and disillusioned with a system and a country he has always been so patriotic about
As Jon Stewart would say ...
"Here's Your Moment of Zen"
a quote from Michele Bachman - "We're running out of rich people in this country."
Can you hear her now?
