Sometimes my continuing mission of blogging for self-amusement gets detoured by news stories that get my bun in a knot.
On the foreign policy scene - we have Obama scrapping the missile shield in Europe, shortly after Sarkozy's warning that Iran is still working on a nuclear weapons program. Comb, swirl and bobby-pin.
On the domestic scene - we have bun-in-a-knot overload. On one hand, we have ACORN, which I must admit is a very efficient organization of nuts. Then we have PEANUT (an organization of one nut), a/k/a "president Carter", who has accused Obama's dissenters of being motivated by racism.
As for what motivates Carter, I am reminded of this scene from the movie Annapolis:
Twins: People who live in Arkansas, you know what their favorite state is?
Jake Huard: No.
Twins: Mississippi. Cause Mississippi's the only thing that keeps Arkansas from being the worst state in the whole country.
So in conclusion, Obama is Carter's Mississippi.
For the record, when I say something puts my bun in a knot, it is a figure of speech. I'm obviously a cornrow guy.
and then there was THIS outrage. Gentlemen, strong stomaches a must if you plan to watch the following video. You may want to have a box of tissues handy. This... *lip quivering* is... hard.
I'm sorry, but if my kid did this, I'd be dolling out a resolution of disapproval.
