Mitt Romney wants an apology from the Obama Campaign for allegations about Bain Capital, which he calls, “reckless and absurd.”
Of course, the Romney Campaign is the authority when it comes to recklessness and absurdity, since they long ago partnered with Donald Trump, who still likes to make a big damn deal about where President Obama was born. Even as this story is still unfolding, we don’t ever expect an apology from the Romney Campaign about Birtherism being nothing more than thinly cloaked race baiting, since we’ve come to expect that kind of behavior from spoiled assholes.
Speaking of idealism, “Newsroom” is headed for its 4th episode. Last week, Aaron Sorkin seemed to finally get a handle on the show. The back-stories settled down, the conflicts weren’t all over the place, and the show clicked. For the first time in my life, I’ve fallen prey to “Must See TV.”
We have a ritual.
I meet-up with my parents for dinner. Mom makes a salad, which she sneaks behind my back, since I’ve been asking for her recipe. Dad fires-up the grill. We eat. Dad drinks.
After dinner, we take a stroll to the local ice cream stand for gelato. Then we settle-in for the kind of news coverage every rational person in America wishes we’d had the privilege of watching two years ago, where the show is set, in the very recent, incredibly infuriating past.
I want to thank Mister Sorkin. Thank you, Mister Sorkin. I’m beginning to love your ambitious show.
We have a ritual. And I love it. Thanks, Aaron. (I can call you Aaron here, since it’s my blog. And I can pretend I’m important enough.)
Speaking of a false sense of being tapped-in, Sarah Palin thinks Condi would make a “wonderful vice president,” even though Condi is pro-choice and Sarah Palin believes poor women in need of abortions should “suck it up,” which is as American as apple pie with a dick in it.
Michelle Obama was threatened by a DC Cop. He even took a picture of the gun he bragged about using. It’s time to create the “Ted Nugent Unstable Asshole Award.” The recipient should be visited by the secret service, once a week, for three lifetimes. The recipient should be followed by The Silly String Paparazzi. All day long, The Silly String Paparazzi should shoot the recipient with Silly String. And uploads pictures to TMZ. The recipient should feel free to go anywhere they please, during the course of the day. But at the end of the day, the recipient should be required to pleasure Ruth Madoff while rocking out to Damn Yankees.
It’s Friday The 13th, and this is certainly your lucky night when it comes to televised guest appearances. That is, of course, if you happen to be an unconvicted felon with presidential entitlement issues.
