Just THIS About THAT ...
Edited on Sat Jan-30-10 12:01 AM by NanceGreggs
Well, its certainly been an interesting week.

The Wonder Gears: Early in the week, TDS featured a pricelessly funny segment comparing Obama to Wonder Years character Kevin Arnold, standing by helplessly as a station wagon drives off, leaving him in the dust. While I admit to being a Jon Stewart fan (okay, a fall-on-my-knees adorer), I think he missed the mark on this one.

That isnt Obamas car the GOP wont let him into; its the citizenrys vehicle you know, the one thats supposed to take us from Point A to Point B, from recession to recovery, from insurance company extortion to actual healthcare coverage, etc. But given the further events of the week, it was made obvious that the President knows a car thats about to run out of gas midway through an ill-advised joy ride and was about to let the populace know exactly who was more than happy to leave who on the side of the road.

The SOTU Address was delivered with Obamas usual eloquence and style, along with a clear message that you fuck with the neither-rain-nor-sleet-nor-GOP-obstructionist-bullshit-will-stop-me postman at your own peril. Despite the fact that the Republicans wanted to refuse delivery all having that no such number, no such zone look on their faces the President wasnt about to step away from the podium until the signed, sealed, delivered receipt was firmly shoved up their collective butts mailboxes.

While Obama continues to play chess, the GOP continues to demonstrate that tiddly-winks are beyond their skill set and besides, nonny-nonny, they aint playing at all. And if there was any doubt about the matter, the American public was educated, in no uncertain terms, by the Smartest Guy in the Room (and surrounding environs, including the universe as we know it) on Wednesday night. Smirkless and heh-heh-less, President Smackdown was generous with handing out the rope lest the Republicans not already have enough to hang themselves.

Smile! Youre On Candid Camera! This weeks episode featured John McCain mouthing the words oh, yeah, blame Bush, as the President talked about the mess hed inherited before he even walked through the door. Honestly, it gave me a bit of hope for the aging senators state of mind. If he can own-up (intended or otherwise) to how we got where we are and whos to blame, maybe just maybe hes not so senile after all.

My favorite segment was, of course, Justice Alitos bobble-headed reaction to the Presidents comments on the recent SCOTUS decision confirming that corporations are people, too, god-damn it!. Too bad he didnt have the foresight to have Mrs. Alito seated behind him within camera range, turning on the waterworks just in time to qualify for an Emmy in the Nancy Kerrigan Cry-Alike category.

Sarah, Sarah, no time is the right time for goodbye Actually, the right time for goodbye was pretty much contemporaneous with the first time you said hello. But I wont debate the point here and now while youre busy trying to figure out what contemporaneous means. (Hint: Its not the name of the suburb between North Korea and South Korea, just in case you were wonderin.)

No SOTU is newsworthy until Sarah Palin weighs-in and what more appropriate venue could there be for her to express her opinion than the political juggernaut that is FaceBook. Along with Sean Ds latest rant about his pizza being delivered cold and sans anchovies, and Mikey Ms FB wall photo montage of his most recent hangover, Sarahs contribution to the must read! post-of-the-week was jam-packed with the usual nonsense weve all come to know her by. Unfortunately, Sarah forgot to tell whoever wrote the piece she passed off as her own that using complete sentences, properly paragraphed and punctuated, would be a dead giveaway that the response was written by someone (anyone) other than the Wasilla Thriller.

Note to Sarah: Never send a literate person to do your writing job. Youll get caught every time.

CNN The Most Trusted Name in Muse tried desperately to overtake FOX-News in the area of newsotainment yet again this week, with their aprs-SOTU coverage not even close, no cigar.

The Best Political Team on TV (or is it the Best Lil Whorehouse I admit to being confused between the two) now bears a striking resemblance to Saturday morning kids shows perhaps in an effort to appeal to its target audience.

We have John Mr. Wizard King and his Magic Board, David Captain Midnight Gergen (who is surely shilling a decoder ring that deciphers whatever the fuck it is hes saying), and Miss Mary (Matlin) who wants to edumacate the populace like Miss Frances of Ding-Dong School once did the only difference being that Dr. Frances Horwich held a doctorate in education, while Miss Mary is just a ding-dong, a similarity that CNN apparently feels is close enough to warrant the awarding of that still just-out-of-reach cigar.

Wolf (former Santas reindeer) Blitzer was quick to announce that CNN would be fact-checking the representations Obama made in his SOTU address. Youve got to figure it will be months before their final report is available, as the CNN staff will first have to attend a lengthy seminar series on What is a fact, and how to report one when you stumble across it.

Note to CNN: If youre going to quote Twitter posts as part of your news coverage, you might want to give the Twitterers a heads-up so they can tune-in and see themselves referred to on national TV God knows theyre too savvy about news to be watching CNN otherwise. In addition, if youre going to stay with this entertainment-as-news-coverage concept, Id much prefer Senor Wences or that guy who could simultaneously spin ten plates atop eight-foot poles. They were at least worth watching.

But Wait Theres More! The GOP-TV network ended its viewing week with Obamas Q-and-A session with Republicans. Im not saying the boys on the other side of the aisle bent over and set themselves up for a well-deserved spanking at every turn but if the theme music for the next session isnt (Lookin Like a Fool) With Your Pants on the Ground, some wanna-be marketing genius will have passed up the opportunity of a lifetime.

Nance returns to poke holes in the insane ramblings of the usual suspects.
But I must disagree with the characterization of the rancid Matlin. Mary is closer to the Crypt Keeper, at least visually. It could be speculated that Mary is one face lift away from having a go-tee.

It's just that if I were you, I would've skipped the snarky Nancy Kerrigan reference. Not only because who can be blamed for crying when someone hits you in the knee with a police baton, but just because events of this past week within her family would call for greater sensitivity. Just sayin'.

Otherwise, righteous commentary indeed.

I have been completely out of the loop news-wise for the past month, due to events in my personal life, and was unaware of the recent Kerrigan family tragedy.

After seeing your reply, I Googled and read the story. Had I known about it, I would never have used the reference. My bad. :blush:

There is some power in that metaphor but there is also IMPOTENCE.

It is a two edged sword.

74. The "multi dimensional" chess game metaphor is
All about stall.

No one can use the other meme 'give him time." Not since the January 20th date marked the one year anniversary.

But this one is still available.

So the chess metaphor helps this Administration by providing the "stall" that is needed.

Don't look behind the curtain to see that although it is the Obama projection on the big screen, rather than the odious, smirking Bush projection, it is still the Corporate world, now joined by the usual Military Industrial Complexities, providing the power for the Projection.

And those of us who get it are rather similar to the little curly headed dog that barked at the weird funny little man - only in the real world, there is no Dorothy to come and see what the doggie knows - there is only the mesmerized public, adoring the rumbling of the projected Wizard.

54. Boys on the other side....

There is no other side with this administration. Just a carefully crafted show to keep the myth of the two party system alive and well.

The policy that Obama put forth in the State of the Union were absolutely disgraceful.

MSNBC gave the commentary that Obama really 'boxed them in' by basically capitulating to all the policy initiatives the Republicans support - yeah, a real chess player - don't lead as a progressive or even a moderate - take away their stem by leading as a conservative...

Great chess move - way to show them!

61. Yeah, the chess thing just doesn't fit
This is more of the Dungeons & Dragons played by the previous administrations, making up the rules as we go along.

I hope the POTUS is successful in distancing himself from the DNC, DLC, and the RNC, that the SOTU address signals an attack on the corporatist agenda that was so clearly demonstrated by the SCOTUS decision, and that NAFTA, GATT, CAFTA, DOMA and DADT are on their way out. (Just wanted to see how many acronyms and abbreviations I could fit inside a sentence, without resorting to OMG, IMHO, WTF, STFU, or TPTB.)

Seriously, if Obama spends the next three years doing what he said he was going to do this week, instead of doing what he did this past year, which wasn't that distinguishable from what Bush did for the previous eight years, he might get a second term

(Yes, I intentionally lumped together the DNC, DLC and the RNC. From my end of the political spectrum they all look like one fuzzy clump of an agenda.)

64. She's baaaack!! (So am I, Nance - couldn't resist the opportunity to have a good gloat!
at the Rethugs expense.

Thought his SOTU speech was superb - but the "President's Question Time" was not even
measurable by any known standards, to date.

Watched the Baltimore Smackdown 3 times. So far.

Again - great to have you back!

:toast:

I loved President Obamas State of the Union speech, and I loved President Obamas Question and Answer session even more.

84. It was rhetorical, of course.
But there's always the one guy who feels compelled to answer anyway. :rofl:

73. Hey Hon!
The SOTU was to "die for",
and the "Wipe the Floor in Baltimore session" was history being made at its finest!

Glad you are back....cause many of us missed you terribly! :pals:

87. just in time "to qualify for an Emmy in the Nancy Kerrigan Cry-Alike category."
Huh?? Whaa?? WTF are you even babbling about here, Nance??

:wtf:

Lame beyond belief. I seriously never expected this from you, and I'm someone who used to routinely, nearly automatically, recommend your threads, until you jumped the shark.


Anyway, you owe Nancy K. an apology.

:thumbsdown:

91. Yeah, I thought that was in poor taste, too.
I've only seen Nancy Kerrigan cry twice: once when she got bashed in the leg with a pipe and then this week at her father's funeral.
