Sour Pineapples

My blogging has been spotty at best recently. More like non-existent with a splash of blog. And I really think I have to blame the Republicans for this one. How interesting is it to bitch about a bunch of out of touch fools that "just say no" to everything? The answer: it isn't. So where does it leave a Pineapple that is still full of resentment about all of the things the last administration jacked up? Basically, on that back shelf in that closet with all of the other broken record players. So all I can do now is muddle through all the "no" sayers and find a few little nuggets of blogginess. So here's my recap of last week.

Tuesday was President Obama's first address to Congress. Because it was his first, it wasn't called actually called a State of the Union Address. Instead he told us how fucked we are. And then he told us how we were going to fix things. And then he told us about people that were getting things done. I bet that girl never imagined that writing a letter to the president about how shitty her school is would land her on center stage during a nationally televised presidential speech. And on a absolutely superficial note, I loved Michelle's dress. Also, he told us he was going to start reforming our health system first thing on Wednesday. Obama is a bad ass.

But the best part of Tuesday night is that we were treated to a crazy speech from Bobby Jindal. Or was it Kenneth the Page? Obviously, Jindal doesn't have any gravitas. Just a wavy arm and a strange cadence to his speech that cannot be attributed to a Louisiana accent. It was also obvious that he watches Fox News and listens to Rush Limbaugh because he actually believes that there is a provision in the stimulus plan for a high speed train from Las Vegas to Disneyland. The "Harry Reid Train" is purely a Republican creation and does not appear in the stimulus plan or any other place on this planet. And then he used examples of the what happened under the Bush administration to explain why government is always bad. And then he played the Katrina card. Unfortunately Harry Lee is dead now and can't refute that bullshit story. And he would have too. Mostly because Bobby Jindal did not go to Jefferson Parish while they were rescuing people with boats. He was safely in Baton Rouge and only flew over New Orleans one time and DID NOT LAND THERE. Naturally, Jindal immediately took his family to Disney World and couldn't clear up his lie or discuss he uncanny resemblance to Kenneth the Page. Here is a scary idea: a Jindal-Palin ticket full of misinformation and an indecipherable web of lies.

But the big news is that the Obama girls are getting their dog in April! I can't wait to see all the pictures of them playing with their new puppy. Don't we all need some happy images right about now?
