Hey! Ruined my joke.

I thoroughly enjoyed this editorial by Maureen Dowd's brother that Meade linked to in the comments for another post.

Interesting that her brother writes a lot like she does.

Meade said...

Palefacé fink,,,

Meade said...

Ha... Sorry, chuck b., I wasn't calling you a palefacé fink. Glad you enjoyed the Dowd brother's piece.

chuck b. said...

De nada. I'm sorry I inserted myself between you and your wife.

Meade said...

My wife. Oh, yes, you must mean Ann A. Gram?

edutcher said...

Very nice. A view more of Spring than Winter.

Ann Althouse said...

Obama has lost Pink..

Oh wait.. she mentions "no child left behind".. its an anti-Bush song.

She doesn't need to walk with Obama.

Soon there will be snow!

Shanna said...

Pretty!!!

Meade said...

I like poodles. Let it snoow!

Meade said...

Snoodles.

Irene said...

I linked to that clip of Winston because it really captures the poodle's jesterlike character.

A relative called and began to describe a stray dog in great detail. A real wunderhund, according to her. This went on for quite some time. I was becoming anxious. Then she said,

"So, we've adopted her!"
"Great!"
"You're not mad are you?"
"What? No! Why would I be?"
"Well, because of having the kids over with a dog and..."
"Oh, no! I'm just so thankful you didn't ask me to adopt it!"

Everybody's probably heard this story by now, but I love the last eight words:

A northwest suburban Chicago woman is charged with allegedly threatening an
officer with what police called a "rigid female pleasure device."


She walked out on a restaurant bill, walked home, was contacted by police, and voila.

The GOP is going to be in PINK all two years. In 2012, it will be all over. The WH is going after Democrats PACs. We will be ready for GOP in two years. If I was in the GOP, then I would be scared. Very scared. So scared that I would immigrate to France. I really feel sorry for the GOP. So very sorry. You are like a town who is about to hit by tornado and you do not even know it.

Sixty Grit: You are like the Capone that Sean Connery took in the movie, Untouchables. By the way, Sean C. was mentioned as a role model in the phone conversation with WH, Media Matters, DNC, MoveOn, etc. We will take you in 2012. Do you have any candidate that can even win one (yes, 1) state from Obama-Biden. No, No, one thousand times no.

Haley (I am a boss hogg), Palin (I am a quitter), Romney (I am a health care guy from MA), Thune (I have done nothing, man), Daniels (I am a midget), Christie (I love to eat), etc.

You are finished. There is a reason all GOP consultants are scared. The tornado is coming. Check the weather channel.

Sixty Grit: Do you know where the weather channel is? Take a look, http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1110/44980.html. You are finished. In two years, your party will have lights out for any attempts to the WH.

All, yes all, of the GOP candidates are a joke. They could not even win a high school presidency.

Come join us.

I have a last few lingering flowers on my hibiscus bushes; one lonely pink one in front of the house, three or four tired red ones on the bush in the front yard. Other than that, a couple of yellowing leaves are the closest I'm likely to get to "fall color" here in Florida. I do, however, enjoy looking at the beauty of other parts of the country.

Sixty, AP is performance art. Don't take him seriously. Waste of your time.

Burningbush is both invasive and incredibly popular in Wisconsin.

@60grit

i'm sure your mother wouldn't approve of your language. we don't care what you think but there are ways to convey your nonsense that are not so offputting.

Poor Professor Bainbridge is bitter. The GOP has rejected the accademic elites (like him) for populists like Palin, Beck, Riehl and Mark Levin. The conservative movement has left him.

Is PB finished?

Here is a retort.

Ricardo said...

Meade: Thanks for your recommendation the other day for the A.M. Leonard Soil Knife. One of these things just showed up in the mail, and it's fabulous for digging and planting! I hope you're getting a commission from the company for touting the knife!

Meade said...

Ricardo: You're very welcome. I'm glad to hear that you like it.
