Boy oh boy – does the economy suck or what?
Most mornings, I get up and click on The Cincinnati Nation to catch up on the news and on most mornings I get depressed reading those headlines.
Foreclosures everywhere. Stores closing. Newspapers going under. Bailout money given to big business that comes back asking for more bailout money. It’s enough to make a person go back to bed.
Pardon me while I lay this directly at the feet of George W. Bush. How many ways has this guy screwed up the country?
Matt Thibbi had some thoughts on this and the Bush legacy on Rachel Maddow’s show last week. Crooks and Liars gives us a recap.
Goodbye George. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. In fact, take the damn door with you and let Obama put up a new one. In other words, let the inauguration begin! Most of us are anxious for this new start – including Taylor Marsh.
And in other drama. . .
An airplane crashed into the Hudson River last week – a flock of geese attacked the plane. This leads to the question – why do the geese hate us? Andrew Sullivan at The Daily Dish provides the answer.
The drama – for now – is over in Illinois. Last week, Roland Burris was sworn in as the new senator. Can he now add a new honor to his tomb? Wonkette says yes.
There was another George in the news last week besides Bush. Boy George is going to be spending the next 15 months in prison. The Huffington Post gave us the details last week.
Boy George. Prison. Mean guys in jail. Sex. Boy George. Mean guys. Sex. Sex.
Why am I thinking of George and Culture Club and their old song “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?” Do you really want to make Boy George cry?
Sorry – someone had to say it.
At least Boy George will get three meals a day in prison. As for me, I’m outa here – looking for the nearest bread line.
