Taking a breather

President Obama is on vacation this week.

The naysayers are whining that he shouldn’t take time off because the economy is in such a shambles.

Hello, August recess. When Republicans are the bullies in the schoolyard and pick on the weak sister Democrats by not letting them take turns on the swingsets.

The right wing-nuts will be damned if they’ll let the Prez enjoy himself because, you know, no rest for the wicked.

While on Martha’s Vineyard (where the Liberal Socialist Elite Meet), it was reported that Obama was going to play 18 holes of golf with Tiger Woods.

Not to be overshadowed, John McCain is playing the card game Old Maid with Mickey Rooney.

Besides golf and tennis, Obama plans on getting in some reading.

Multiple choice question —- which book will the Prez try to finish reading while on vacation?

A. “Julie and Julia”

B. “The Time Traveller’s Wife”

C. “Mein Kampf”

Bonus round question: Late at night, Obama will want to watch a movie that best describes his mission in life. What movie will that be?

A. “Courage Under Fire”

B. “Braveheart”

C. “The Man Who Would Be King”

There is still news happening regardless of Obama being on vacation.

The White House says that the swine flu will likely kill 90,000 Americans.

Just in time, the government will have a vaccine ready by October.

The government! Mon dieu! That would make the flu vaccine socialized medicine!

This is when real America will want to pay real close attention to the Fox News fearmongers, who will likely convince their avid followers in real America that this swine flu thing is a fabrication.

Yep, not real people. Another Obama and the Democrats scare tactic.

Like global warming.

Nice try. The Obama administration can’t scare Americams. Only Fox News can do that to their Americans.

Panderer of the week:

It’s only Tuesday, but no one is likely to beat this cretin:

One Republican Congresssman from the great state of California Wally Herger, who, at one of his Obama health scare town hall meetings genuflected to the lowest common denominator.

No, not Glenn Beck. But close.

One yokel yelled from the crowd “I’m a proud right-wing terrorist.”

To which the weasel Herger replied: “Amen. God bless you. Now there’s a great American.”

Herger won’t be defeated when he runs for re-election because his constituents in Redding are not called Reddingites but, say it with me, children — Rednecks.

Forget that, Herger is even an insult to rednecks.

He didn’t just pander to the lowest common denominator.

He has officially become the lowest common denominators’ poster boy.

Terrorist. Great American. A contradiction in terms.

Like Congressman Wally Herger, man of the people.

    Hey MJP, old bean, in reality –which I know is an address far from where you reside– if Fox is getting those kind of numbers they are most likely ‘train wreck numbers.’

    You know there’s a train wreck, you know it’s going to be horrible, but you just can’t help but watch.

    In the end, like watching professional wrestling or HBO, it’s just a waste of time, however glorious or inglorious it may be.

    ingloriously yours,

    Bucky
