SHRUBBIE'S GREAT BURMA SHAVE CHANGE OF THE SUBJECT

OK, the Leader of the Free World, goes to the UN and fails to feature Iran exporting weapons and developing weapons grade nuke capability and talks about a Military Junta country which punishes opposing views, deports or kills former officials and generally behaves in an undemocratic manner. OK, I can live with that. He calls on the UN to promote freedoms and elections in Pakistan........Oh, wait! That's our beloved ally. They're swell guys.

Now we're talking about a country called Mylar, or something, which makes great yard signs but a really cheesy country.

All of which makes me wonder.......What do we call a Burmese Python now? Those suckers are big so I guess we call them anything they want.

Burma Shave moistens your entire beard. Give me a break. Is that all you got?

2KEY,

I know I don't have to take attendance when I need a friend. I think your homey just does it for effect.

He has no beef with me nor any basis for an opinion on government work. He likes to drop things in punchbowls for the reaction. I don't take it personally.

In addition to Myanmar Bush denounced the governments of Belarus, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria and Zimbabwe as “brutal regimes” that should be confronted for their abuses.

In contrast to the hectoring lecture offered by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President Bush pleaded with the United Nations to stand up for human rights where repressive governments were trampling on them.

You're right the President didn't mention Iran's nuclear program, leaving that subject to European leaders like President Nicholas Sarkozy of France and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany who both came out four square against the mullahs getting their hands on nuclear weapons. A welcome change from out "new" friends. Letting them do it highlighted that change.

I suspect Bush couldn't wipe his ass in a manner that would satisfy
you.

That's a very nice theme. Inconveniently, it doesn't track with the facts. I stood up for him on the surge and the Roberts nomination. I can't find another dem. blogger who did that.

When I try to be fair, I can't win. If I agree with Shrubbie, it's because he's so undeniably brilliant and when I criticize him, it's because I'm an unpatriotic partisan. How much better discussion would be if we could avoid imputing baser motives to others....and I readily admit, I fall into that trap myself.

TYFCB even if you are factually wrong.

Now you're just making up shit. Never accused you of either. You're gonna have to do better than that.

How do you think your girl did in the debate last night?

I don't recall one righty acknowledging my bi-partisan approach in those two instances. The analysis is mine I didn't say 'z' or anybody else said those words. It just seems to be some kind of shared understanding. If I agree with Shrubbie it's somehow unremarkable. If I disagree it's because I never agree.

If you care to explain the phenomenon some other way, fine with me. It's still what happens.

Edward Madigan is going to fight Gov Blaggo rumor has it .......


Man Uncle T you missed what may be the single defining moment in Both Les and Sachs career

There's a park or an outhouse or something in Lincoln named for Ed Madigan. I think he was even Secretary of Agriculture for about 12 seconds under Reagan in the Lame Duck Comatose years.

I'm not sure he poses any real threat to Blago, but maybe to Les.

Say what you will about Meet the Press host Tim Russert, but he proved to be an effective moderator for Wednesday’s Democratic debate in New Hampshire. He wasn’t afraid to challenge the candidates on the issues and force them to defend their policies and statements.

And by using a creative hypothetical he caught Hillary Clinton in a bind. Not surprisingly she said what she thought the audience wanted to hear. She even managed a nice comeback line. The only problem was her answer didn’t mesh with her previous statements. This will not come as a surprise to anyone familiar with her history. The truth is that Hillary has a long record of instinctive responses that sound good but turn out to be untrue or contradictory after further investigation.

Pandering as fast as she can, Hillary Clinton says that if you squirt out a child under her administration, you should get $5,000 in taxpayer money for the little puke machine
