Sunday Screams and a little fun July 22, 2007

Posted by judylobo in Politics.

tigerblog.jpgYesterday’s anal probe of Bush was simply too easy a target to poke fun. I can assure you that many jokes and thoughts went through my mind during the procedure and also thinking of Cheney in command for those few hours (although I am not sure what difference it makes if Bush is conscious or not – Cheney is in charge).

Dan Tynan is a funny guy. Here is what he had to say – President’s Colon Claims Executive Privilege – about GB’s colonoscopy.

– Speaking of assholes: The beating war drum candidates, Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney are chest pounding he-men. Writer Joe Conason takes a look at their personal histories when they had a chance to fight for their country. A good read from Salon.com. I especially liked the last paragraph:

Now Romney echoes Giuliani by asserting that if he had been called, he would have served. “I was supportive of my country,” he told Globe reporter Michael Kranish. “I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there and in some ways it was frustrating not to feel like I was there as part of the troops that were fighting in Vietnam.” Perhaps. But it is hard to blame Romney for choosing missionary work over military service. After all, the Mormons didn’t send him to proselytize in the slums of the Philippines, Guatemala or Kenya. They sent him to France.

Who’s Your Daddy? The Masculine Mystique of Fred Thompson. The Repugnants are desperate to find a hero to lead them out of the muck and mire of the Bushies.

Enter Fred Thompson. More than anyone in the field–more than Giuliani, more than John McCain, and certainly more than the altogether-too-well-coiffed Mitt Romney–Thompson exudes old-school masculinity. Along with the burly build, he has the rumbling baritone, the low-key self-assurance, and the sense of gravitas honed by years as a character actor playing Important Men. In Thompson’s presence (live or on-screen), one is viscerally, intimately reassured that he can handle any crisis that arises, be it a renegade Russian sub or a botched rape case.

Oh how the mighty are going to fall. I can hear the distant rumbling of a huge thud coming your way.

– Toot toot! Repugnants want to grow hemp! Wa-hooooooooooooo!

– How do you erase your thoughts? Your beliefs? How you really think? Rudy has no problem in that arena.

–  A fond farewell to Tammy Faye. We will miss you and your eye makeup. The film, The Eyes of Tammy Faye was a loving tribute to Tammy Faye Bakker Messner. Directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato embrace Tammy’s innocence and depict her story as basically the lamb who is led to the slaughter. The Bakker’s story is told in short chapters introduced by hand puppets (a used concept, but it works wonderfully here). My review 2000 movie review is here:

– My usual photo-week brings you to a visit to the Bronx Zoo. The baby tree kangaroo is still a crowd pleaser and we were also excited to find three Scarlet Ibis chicks in the Aquatic Bird area.

– We also visited the Prospect Park Zoo as well this week and thought you might enjoy seeing a few of their delightful meerkats.
