Last week was the week of the silly tea parties across the United States – and since Cincinnati is silly, we joined right in.
Oh, sorry, I’m repeating myself. I wrote about this last Friday.
Apparently, the Republicans are now growing nervous about the tea parties as Independents have been turned off by them. The Cincinnati Nation reported on this last week.
Well, of course it’s a turn off! This bullshit isn’t a political statement, it’s just a sideshow and think of all the tea that’s being wasted – but Republicans know all about waste – don’t they?
Sorry, don’t mean to get on a rant. I’ll try to relax.
Have you ever wondered where all the ‘tea’ really goes? Kevin Osborne at Daily Beat gave us an education last week.
In keeping with our “silly” theme this morning. . .
Texas Governor Rick Perry made some news last week by suggesting that Texas secede from the Union! Wonkette gives us the details.
My thoughts? No problem! Just make sure Bush is still living there.
I know as a writer, getting books published can be a bear. Well, not if you’re a dog – a Portuguese water dog who’s name is Bo Obama. Yes, the President’s dog is getting his own book deal.
The New York Times wrote about this last week. One thing they didn’t report is that Bo’s advance for the book will be paid with Purina Dog Chow. I mean, what does a dog really need with money? That would be silly.
Speaking of silly, according to The Huffington Post, Rush Limbaugh on his radio show last week was slapping himself to simulate torture.
Forget the slapping, Rush, knock yourself out.
And ending on a not so silly note, Majikthise suggested last week that if newspapers want to have a future, perhaps they need to look back at the past. The Village Voice did some old school investigative reporting last week, landing three great stories.
When was the last time you saw three great stories in a newspaper here in Cincinnati? I know. That’s a silly question. I’ll go back to drinking my tea.
