Another day, another golf game

Day 83

I believe today marks about the 8th or 9th game of golf since the beginning of the destruction of the Gulf of Mexico.  I hear he’s also planning another vacation.  He’s laughing and laughing and laughing at how as a virtual

nobody he became president of the United States of America.

But while he’s laughing, I’m thinking he’s a pretty funny guy himself with his little bird-legs.  It can get fairly demanding, that Oval Office stuff, so he flies all over the country making little speeches at fund raisers but with tickets now being reduced to half price in order to sell them, that’s not going real well.

It must be quite demoralizing and it’s all very hard work.

He needs his rest.  It’s in our best interest.

But then he wasn’t going to rest.

I’m wondering if it really matters?  I guess not.  Mr. Halperin has got it covered for us.  Anxiously awaiting the names of the two unidentified co-players…..

Wonder if he will spot any words painted on Mr. Obama’s fingernail with a message for us?

You can sure get lost in a Louisiana bayou.

What does Glenn Beck and Lindsey Lohan have in common?

I have actually been driven from all the news programs, even  Fox.  I can maybe take five minutes at the time.

Glenn Beck has about the best program on right now, without a doubt.  His show is filled with fact and history and investigative reporting that puts the others to shame and absolutely worth watching – most days.  Even he has some bad ones though.

“No Ratings”

But this is just so funny, him writing a message on his fingernails to illustrate just how low the news has gone as to make a really big story out of what Lindsey Lohan wrote on her fingernail.  I am sure her message was sincere, but it was not breaking news, but more appropriate for Entertainment Tonight.  And there is no lack of important news either,  but it’s all just pure propaganda and diversion.

Just an example of the ratings from July 7, 2010:

At 5:00
Beck on Fox:  1,950,000
MSNBC Matthews:  575,000

or

At 8:00
O’Reilly on Fox:  3,017,000  (who has thoroughly turned me off lately, by the way)
MSNBC Olbermann:  855,000

or

At 9:00
Hannity on Fox:   2,160,000
MSNBC Maddow:  796,000
