The Final Countdown
New Years Eve was never all that exciting for me. My idea of an exciting countdown was Apollo 11, I grew up during the "Space Race".
But yes, my Dears - only 10 days more. It is kind of funny to watch both sides of the political spectrum spitting and snarling about things that PEBO has done in terms of suggested legislation and picks for administration personnel. The Wingnut Right is screaming that he's changing things too fast and they're all worked up with their "Socialism" theme - and the Rabid Left is screaming that he's not changing things overnight and had the audacity of inviting someone they don't like to speak at his inauguration. I guess they didn't listen to his acceptance speech on 11/4 when he said that he would probably do things that folks didn't agree with.
And Sarah Palin is complaining of being "exploited" - as if anyone even will remember who she is in a few months. *smirk*
BREAKING NEWS: Illinois Governor Blagojevich Impeached
Yeah, like I didn't see THAT one coming a mile away. This line cracked me up tho...
"It's our duty to clean up the mess and stop the freak show that's become Illinois government," said Rep. Jack D. Franks, a Democrat
Excuse me, Jack? Can I call you Jack? Ok, thanks. Jack, if we stop the freak show that is Illinois Government - how the hell will the State run? I mean... I've only lived here for almost 1/2 a century and the state's government has ALWAYS been a fardleschnockered-up freak show. Just because y'all impeached the Governor-with-Barney-Rubble-Hair we should stop our long-held tradition of dirty politics and political shenanigans?? What is this world coming to????
