Sucks to be you…

Well, looks like Bush has the Ol’ Grandad kept in the lectern now, or perhaps just pumped in intravenously from where he used to keep his audio-receiver. Nice picture, dumbass.

Oh, I’m sorry, I guess I’m being disrespectful toward Dear Leader. What could possibly be the cause?

“Recent economic indicators have become increasingly mixed,” Bush said today after lunch with Mayor Richard Daley and city business leaders at the Union League Club of Chicago.

I believe the mix is, "Well, it sucks for most of you. But I’m still employed, have fabulous free-health care, free-housing, free airplane, and make serious money, so it’s good for me."

Meanwhile, in reality, I still cannot get over this news blurb from yesterday:

The average UK person will this year have a greater income than their US counterpart for the first time since the 19th Century, figures suggest…

"The UK has been catching up steadily with living standards in the US since 2001, so it is a well-established trend rather than simply the result of currency fluctuations."

Good thing we elected had selected for us a Dickensian Uriah Heep without the cunning.

Same sex marriage opponents decide to do something



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
