A Political Update from My Dogs
On Monday, our eloquent president told us in the second to the last sentence that the state of the union was good. How he said that with a straight face, I will never know. Maybe that's why he waited until the end of the speech to say it. You know, to prevent fits of giggles throughout the speech. For the most part it was the same old crap. War, blah, blah, terror, blah, blah, inconsequential stimulus package, blah, blah, we need to make schools better but you should send your kids to faith based schools because schools are so bad, blah, blah. Since the weather was nice that night, we had the back door open so the girls could go in and out as they pleased. At one point Laverne came in for a drink of water, looked at the TV, snorted in disgust and went back out to dig a hole in the yard. I guess the idea of having a hole big enough to get all the way into was much more appealing than watching the bullshit on the TV. I can't say that I blame her. Both Laverne and Shirley came in to watch the Democrats Response to the State of the Union speech. And they were both impressed with Kathleen Sebelius. We all enjoyed it when she told W to grow up. Of course, she said it in the nicest possible way! MOTL and I were talking about her as a viable candidate for Vice-President and both of the girls agreed with much tail wagging. Of course, their tails started wagging the minute Sebelius started talking. They were all about her message of getting to work and solving the problem. However, Shirley could barely contain her excitement at the thought of a Obama-Sebelius ticket. The thought of that brings on much tail wagging, wiggling and kisses from Shirley. It makes Laverne prance and she even talks a little. Personally, I would like to live in their world so I'm down with that idea, too.
