After being dismayed by Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow for their shrill little critiques of President Obama's Tuesday night speech from the Oval Office, I was glad to see Keith Olbermann eat his words the following night after Obama delivered more than either of them could have ever imagined by talking BP out of twenty billion dollars.
However, instead of acknowledging that maybe Obama might actually know what he is doing and that the words that he used in the speech might have been cleverly chosen for the best political effect at that moment, Rachel Maddow decided to devote her closing segment to Rachel Maddow: The Speech We Should Have Heard From Obama. [ 2 ] "Rachel Maddow rewrites President Barack Obama's Tuesday Oval Office address to what she had hoped he was going to say". Needless to say that I was not overly impressed with her angry little speech. Obama has just pulled off another major coup, and Maddow is still saying that she can do a better job than the president.
No time for blogging today! I am far too busy complaining about how busy I am. (Jeepers! I barely have time to obsess over what to eat for dessert, much less have a second helping.) In the meantime you can watch these swell videos of people that are not Americans imitiating American accents. I especially like this one.
Of course, with the win by the fiscal and social conservative Sharron Angle in the Nevada GOP Senate Primary, I think that we can safely say that Orly's torch has been passed. Angle wants to abolish the Department of Education, the Energy Department, the EPA, Social Security and bring back prohibition. She feels that the United States should withdraw from the United Nations, and has spoken out strongly against fluoridated water. Oh, an in the wake of BP Gulf oil spill, she feels that we need to need to "deregulate" Big Oil. Woo hoo! You go, girl!
Dr. Zira, I must caution you. Experimental brain surgery on these creatures is one thing, and I'm all in favor of it. But to suggest that we can learn anything about the simian nature from a study of man is sheer nonsense. Man is a menace, a walking pestilence. He eats up his food supply in the forest, then migrates to our green belts and ravages our crops. The sooner he is exterminated, the better. It's a question of simian survival.
