Sarah Palin, a full-grown woman and governor of the State of Alaska, is using her office to launch her frustration with Levi Johnson, father of her grandchild. Seriously, she put out a press release on the government’s stationery tanning the kid’s bottom for talking about his relationship with her daughter. He’s a teenager. Sarah is a governor. Cripes.
Speaking of cripes, Larry Summers is suspect from the moment he walks in the room. He’s President Obama’s chief economic advisor who was paid nearly $8 million last year from hedge funds and financial institutions for giving speeches. Some might argue the guy took a $7.9 million cut in pay to work for the president. Not me. The man has questionable allegiances. I think he leans Wall Street in his solutions and bears watching.
Not a day goes by that I do not marvel at the different ways the left and the right view the same event. My conservative friends view the President’s overseas shtick as the first step in converting the USA into a European satellite. I couldn’t disagree more. I think our president took the first steps toward restoring America’s leadership in the world. We live in an ever-increasing global society and global economy. Get used to it.
Alabama Republican Congressman Mike Rogers knows how to turn a phrase. He said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is so mean that she is “Tom DeLay in a skirt.” Wasn’t DeLay a Republican?
Personal note: I’ve spent so much time at this keyboard (happily) that I have worn off the “A”and the “E” – sharp observers will note that still leaves the “IOU.” And the significance of that is?
