If Empty Chairs Could Talk

Res Ipsa Loquitor

I think we've all been wondering how, and how long it will take, for media to turn Obama's humiliating debate performance into an explainable anomaly.  He's normally so quick on his feet  in unrehearsed scenarios, don't you know; it had to be something.  Here's the best one I heard.

Bob Woodward earlier explained that there had to have been some deeply disturbing news—about a world situation, or family— that reached him just prior to air-time.  "When the onion is peeled," Woodward said, we'll find out what it was. 

Nice try Bob.  But, wait.  You may  have blindly stumbled onto  something. This?


President Obama reelection campaign, rattled by his Wednesday night debate performance, could be in for even worse news. According to knowledgeable sources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.

Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday.

The Obama campaign has received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via credit card donations through their website. On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million.

The article does mention that the 2008 Obama campaign let donors use "largely untraceable prepaid credit cards to evade limits and mask a contributor's identity."  There was no investigations, nor follow-up however.

Quick- het me one of "our" judges on the line ...

"PA.ID ruling could aid Obama"

I'm catching up on yesterday's news,  and just ran across this AP article.  What must anyone reading this instantly conclude?  The Liberal must, at the very least,  feel embarrassment at being so publicly stripped naked.  The "independent" voter will mindlessly tuck it away in a brain file (Democrats really are cheats).  Someday it will all percolate.  Sheesh.  Our election process is Mexican corrupt.  It's a wonder Obama will lose this election.

By the by. I did a news search on the first paragraph text.  Lots of results, but when I went to a cited link, the  "PA. ID ruling could aid Obama"  headline was changed.  And that includes the source article you're looking at.  Independents will have to work hard now to understand its message.

It turns out that Butt Chugging is not nearly so repulsive as I just imagined (eeewwwwwww).  We used to call it the "Wine Exchange (eewww)," and you only did it with your girlfriend (Hmmmm), as discussed in Explanation #1

My Favorite Animal

My Favorite Animal

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken."

Res Ipsa LoquitorShe said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed.

My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.     I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office.

I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.

I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.

She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.

I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.

Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous person I admired most.  I told her, "Colonel Sanders."

Guess where I am now...

First Debate K.O.




They seem genuanly gobsmacked by this idea.

That MSNBC analysis says it all.  So total was Romney's unpantsing of the Poseur last night that the CNN and Gallup polls will (I'm told) only have Obama up by 2 today.

I'm basking.

I thought it was a mistake for Team Romney to announce before hand that they would be exploiting Obama's inability to tell the truth.   I mean, why telegraphs your punch?  As it turned out, it seems Mitt played Cassius Clay to Obama's Sonny Liston.  He filled Obama with fear and self-doubt. 

"Alright, even Bill Maher had to point that this was a rough one for the president, he tweeted this: 'i can't believe i'm saying this, but Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter,'" another host, Mika Brzezinski, added

In Passing

        Goodbye Margie
About 15 years ago I found myself alone with my mother-in-law in her Virgina home.  She'd stayed behind to prepare Sunday dinner while everyone else went  gallivanting.  I was watching the Redskin game, and she would wander in from time to time.  I assumed she was just being hospitable— until the Redskins were burned by a long pass play. 

I uttered an oath; she cried out, "That corner back [name] has been the weak link in that defense all year!"  WTF?  I was truly gob-smacked by that bit of arcane analysis by this mother of my wife (who thinks a line backer is a Detroit Lions fan (she's from Michigan). 

"How in God's name did you know that?" I asked.
"I know a lot of things," she responded with a twinkle.

And she did.  We buried her next to her husband Dan yesterday.  She outlived him by 19 years.  She has surely gone straight to Heaven.  No purgatory time at all.  I am most fortunate;  my in-laws were and are some of the best people I've ever known.  I told mother-in-law jokes, but they were bereft of any rancor.  I loved the woman, and her husband.

Looking around the church hall after the funeral I saw her legacy.  Three generations of the most beautiful offspring I've ever seen.  And all of them as sweet and kind as she was.  That's a fine legacy.  R.I.P. Margie.
