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.

Props for having the stomach to watch the SOTUA. I figured what more could the guy say that he hasn't already said. I'm still waiting for him to give Alberto a Medal of Freedom. Who else deserves it more!

mad: it isn't so much the stomach for it, but the desire to complain about it that kept me going. really I was more interested in the the response and it did not disappoint. as for alberto -- we can only dream!!!

I didn't watch it. I already knew the crab he would spew as you say with a straight face. Is he living in a parallel universe? On the other hand does the American public have the guts to really vote for change and will there really be any change?

Thank Evil your two canines have filled the void of political banter whilst Evil Spock has been away. . .

jill: we won't know unless we try.

evil: first of all -- where the fuck have you been? you have been missed! second, my dogs are very political with very strong opinions. I knew I could trust them when they growled at the president. I am a very proud mommy.

Hi Pokopo,

Ensign Redshirt wrote an adequate excuse for Evil Spock. But for the most part, if you believe hard enough in Evil Spock, Evil Spock will always be with you.

That, and once I perfect the nannites, you can just have tiny Evil Spock robots injected into your bloodstream.

"How he said that with a straight face"

I did not watch or listen. Not even a smirk?

"I didn't watch it. I already knew the crab he would spew"

I know the feeling. Bad lunch at "Red Lobster" that day.
