One of the things I recall about the immediate aftermath of September 11 was how polite everyone was in congested traffic.   We had never seen so much yielding.  If you didn't yield, the terrorists would win.

Members of Congress joined hands on the steps of the Capitol Building and sang, "God Bless America".  But as I noted at the time, the congeniality broke down around "white with foam."

For the first time American flags were appearing on the lapels of Democrats and late night comedians.  Was it about patriotism, approval or Nielson ratings?   The answer is yes.

Janet Napolitano says that the airport rule on shoes won't last forever.  Fine, but the longer people continue to be inconvenienced at the airport, the longer they will remember.

 

The Republican candidates all say they will abolish Obamacare on Day One of their presidency.  What about Day Two?  They will tell the American people to stay healthy.

In Wednesday's debate, Rick Perry said that if you come to Texas and commit a heinous crime, you would be executed.  I expected Perry to add:  "And that means you, Ben Bernanke."

Candidate Jon Huntsman, the designated grown-up, warned Republicans not to be the anti-science party.  It takes guts to blow an endorsement from the Flat Earth Society.

Huntsman's statement was an obvious slam against Newt Gingrich who believes the Earth revolves around him.

Mitt Romney gave the impression that he wants to embrace the tea party, but the tea party says, "not on the first date."

 

Rick Perry:  "Social Security is a Ponzi scheme."  Bernie Madoff:  "I'll be the judge of that."

An earthquake, a hurricane and blasts of hot air from Rick Perry.  Where were the August doldrums when we needed them?

Perry would be well advised to tone down the cowboy shtick.  You know it goes too far when it offends Texans.

Why isn't the trailing Jon Huntsman catching on?  His fellow Republicans have sent him a message:  "This is not the time for decency."

 

If love means never having to say you're sorry, Dick Cheney must really love us.

In Cheney's new book, he makes no apologies.  Of course not -- he's Dick Cheney, for heaven's sake.   Did we expect his book to be called "Confessions of a War Criminal"?

Did we think Cheney would title his book "What Was I Thinking?"

The actual title of this book is, "In My Time."  It could also be called "Torture, Shmorture."

 

 

A 6.0 earthquake hits the Nation's Capitol.  This must be God's plan to get Washington moving again.

 

When the quake hit, a crowd gathered in front of the IRS building, yelling, "Fall, baby, fall".

 

 

The Obamas are on Martha's Vineyard, the Gingrichs are in Hawaii, Mitt Romney is taking a break from his previous statement and Rick Perry is on  hunting trip in front of the Federal Reserve

Although President Obama is on Martha's Vineyard, his presidential office travels with him.   Although Gingrich is in Hawaii, his delusional presidential chances travel with him.

 

After Newt made a campaign speech on the island of Maui, he said, "and now -- on to Guam."

 

While the White House was empty, Joe Biden snuck into the Oval Office to sit at the president's desk.   And there was Hillary.

 

On the anniversary of Elvis' death, Michele Bachmann wished him a happy birthday.  Is there a Hallmark card for this?

From the winner of the Iowa poll

To the living-dead of Rock and Roll.

Getting votes from your ans, that's my endeavor.

Happy Birthday or Deathday.  Whatever.

 

If you drew a diagram tracing the trajectories of the debt ceiling congressional labyrinth, that diagram would resemble Charlie Sheen's brain scan.

Politicians love using words as decoys. "Revenue" is used by Democrats who think that people are too stupid to know that revenue means tax hikes.

No sooner was America pulled off the railroad tracks from the oncoming train of financial ruin than we learned that Apple has more money than the federal government. Could iGov have stopped the train?

Apple's larger treasury makes the U.S. of A literally a second-rate power. When Obama says, "we need jobs." He's talking about Steve.

The case against Kindle: You can't use it to prop up a wobbly table.

Would you rather have an attorney whose office is lined with rows of serious law books, as opposed to a Kindle sitting on an empty shelf?
