We're preparing ourselves for the next big foreign policy mistake - exactly what half the country says they were trying to avoid by electing Obama - and you've got nothing on Syria?

There's a cartoon lurking there.

A guy's walking on the path except he's on crutches.

Maybe they're made from human legs or someting.

I'd have to think about it some.

Mitchell the Bat said...

A peg leg seems too obvious.

Mitchell the Bat said...

But you could make him a pirate and then you end up with a meta-joke.

The back 40 at Meadhouse?

Give that man a pat of the back (or wherever) and a day without "My Dinner With Andre".

The Russkies are backing their old pal, the Pencil Neck; we're backing Al Qaeda the way we did in Labya.

What could go wrong?

(OTOH maybe nuclear immolation is just what we need)

Obama is not to blame for Syria's implosion. That is all sunni v. shite feuds.

Frankly my dear Muslims,I don't give a damn.

I have a retirement path picture somewhere...

We got a new summer intern this week. She seems like a nice young lady. It's a predominantly male industry and a 21/22 male department that I work in.

Fridays, a good group of us always heads to a certain bar for cocktails and bonding. So ...

If one of us asks her to come, he would be risking a lawsuit, right? Presumption of unwanted sexual interest. But if we exclude her, we're risking a lawsuit, right? Unequal ability to network, etc.

Is that incorrect in any way?

Mitchell the Bat said...

You know what?

I think maybe I'd just go with an old guy with a cane.

Maybe just sitting on a park bench, regarding the tree.

Mitchell the Bat said...

Of course, there are all sorts of erectile dysfunction jokes to be had, as well.

No one thinks he's to blame for their conflict. But now we're going to start arming the rebels.

The explanation for the method you used to put up excerpts on "S" from the NYTs article about the study on late term abortion helped make it clear what you were pursuing.

So, thanks for clarifying.

No wonder so many people go so willingly down the garden path.

Maybe next time, better to take the road less trampled, the one less strewn with good intentions.

AllenS said...

If you're a female and in the Armed Forces, don't want down that trail. It's a trap.

Methadras said...

Well, Rubio just imploded.

Saint Croix said...

Fat is the new gay. Soon we won't be able to use the word "fat" anymore.

And we will mock those skinny joggers with the painful faces who are trying so hard to control their desires. You're in the closet! You know, in your heart of hearts, that you're secretly chubby.

Almost Ali said...

Re; Well, Rubio just imploded.

What does that mean, he's come out of the commie closet?

Clyde said...

All he wanted was a sandwich!

I suspect that the Congressman thought there was something a little... strange... about that BLT:

Anti-gay congressman walks through wrong door, attends LGBT event

I don't know what ad you are seeing with this, but on my computer, it's showing the "What Would You Do For A Klondike Bar?" 5 Second Challenges. Maybe the Congressman's was "Five Seconds At An LGBT Event." I hope he enjoyed his ice cream bar!

Groundwork

Poking out like smooth white mushroom caps
From your cockle-burred skirt, your knees plant you
Firmly in springtime’s grass-roots government.
You kneel in still-yellow grass, the winter-
Scrapped works of last year’s garden growth, waiting
For soil to reveal its green agenda.

After poring over gardening magazines
And seed catalogs, “Sweet Joe Pie Plant, Joystick,
Roman Shield, Love-Lies-Bleeding, Pygmy Torch,
Soulmate…” – flower names part your petaled lips
As if fleshing out beauty’s sacred laws.
You chant them, reclaim them, spade to groundwork.

For spring turns root of commandment under
Fruit of prayer – and for you, it has always been
A pure thrill to just sit and name like Eve did
On her first look through Eden’s glossy pages
Where her blooms born from soil’s soft crevasses
Laid the patient groundwork for eternity.

He just gave up on the border enforcement amendment and is supporting the bill after saying he would be against it and walk away if it wasn't in there and accepted.

Asad is an Alawite, which is sort of a half-Christian Moslem. They worship in a mosque, but they celebrate Christmas and Easter. Both Shiites and Sunnis don't consider them to be real Muslims. It's more complicated than most Americans know.

Almost Ali said...

@Methadras,

Thanks.
