Paul Ryan and Bill Clinton backstage, Ryan confessing his health plan is a sham... click on the video picture from Youtube:





I really was going to post something during the last three days, I swear! But I was sitting in my comfy chair, which not only swivels and it rocks, but also reclines, while I was reading the newspaper. The cat climbed on and fell asleep in my lap, which caused me to drift off and also sleep for a couple of hours... Woke up and barely had time to turn on the evening news programs...

If you Google the word santorum, you will get something other than Rick Santorum's website, courtesy of a mean-spirited prank made by Dan Savage, who's real name is Michael Weiner. Wikipedia explains it all: "The word santorum /sænˈtɔərəm/ is a sexual neologism for "that frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex", and was proposed by readers of American humorist and sex-advice columnist Dan Savage in 2003 to "memorialize" then-Republican U.S. Senator Rick Santorum from Pennsylvania, prompted by controversy over his statements on homosexuality.[1] Savage asked his readers to submit new definitions for the term.[1] After Savage created a website for the term, the word became a top search result and unseated the Senator's official website on multiple Web search engines including Google, Yahoo! Search and the Bing search engine.[2][3][4] In 2010, Dan Savage offered to remove his website if Rick Santorum would agree to donate US$5 million to a gay rights group, Freedom to Marry, which advocates on behalf of same-sex marriage in the United States."

Rick Santorum doesn't have a chance to win at anything, but it's nice to have him around to make fun of. Even Miley Cyrus has been tweeting about him, mainly because the CEO of Urban Outfitters donated to his campaign, and she's at war with UO for ripping off people's jewelry designs. Then, Rick has come out in the past with such gems as: “IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING YOU KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH’ – Rick Santorum, which prompted the website on fecal matter, and puts having a koi pond in a whole, new light... just the image of Rick as some form of frothy mixture means that no-one will ever take him seriously, until the end of time, or next October 21st, whichever comes first...


Our dear Sarah Palin has rented a bus and decked it out for a tour of the East Coast, where she will drop in unannounced at biker rallies and other planned events, where she will parade herself and make wicked comments meant to be used as soundbites on Fox news, yet tantalizing everyone by not quite saying if she is a candidate for the presidential primary. She will keep the field of candidates interesting, and we can only hope for a debate with herself, Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain in it to win it...
"Sarah Palin was asked if she has the fire in the belly to run for President, and she said yes. But it's not the fire in the belly; it's the air in the head." – Jay Leno
I keep hoping that we will have a national debate over Mormonism, with John Huntsman and Mit Romney in as candidates. The Mormon church has taken the first step, by making commercials that supposedly show how diverse their members are, but I haven't yet seen anyone else picking up the gauntlet... My great grandparents came to Los Angeles from Salt Lake City, on one of the last covered wagons, and my great great grandfather was a young punk who came to Denver as a gunslinger. His goals in life at that time were to sleep with as many Indian women as he could, and to kill as many Mormons as he was allowed... I understand that he was successful in both endeavors... My great grandparents were rebels, they decided that the Mormon church was too flaky for them, so they became Christian Scientists. I know, they went from one extreme to another, just as flaky sect, but in those days you didn't have a whole lot of choice. Even today, the whole Southwest is dotted with secret Mormon enclaves, some where polygamy is still practiced as a modern farming method...


It looks like Russia may successfully negotiate for Moammar Qaddafi's departure from Libya. At the G8 meeting, it was decided that Russia had the best chance and asked if they would step up and take on the responsibility to negotiate a deal. From al Jazeera: "Sergei Ryabkov, the Russian deputy foreign minister, told reporters on Friday that "Gaddafi has forfeited legitimacy" and that Russia is ready "to help him go".


Soon after, Mikhail Margelov, Moscow's special representative on Africa told reporters that his country is ready to negotiate Gaddafi's departure.Margelov explained that Russia is in contact with Gaddafi's entourage, and that they are willing to negotiate Libyan leader’s fate. "We shouldn't talk to Gaddafi himself but with members of his cabinet, possibly with his sons. And we are making such contacts, so there is a hope for a political resolution," Margelov told reporters at the G8 summit in northern France."

And with the Serbian dictator finally under arrest, it looks like the era of crazy-people-as-rulers may finally be coming to an end. "Ratko Mladic led the armed forces of the Bosnian Serbs during the Balkan wars of the early 1990’s", and was infamous for the number of executions he committed. Maybe that's what the Mayan calendar means by ending in 2012, that Kim Jong-Il will finally pass away along with Robert Mugabe and Vladimir Putin...

The rest of the region remains safe, as Pepe Escobar points out in the Asian Times: "The rest of the region might be teetering, but members of the Gulf Cooperation Council - Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman - are sleeping easy. Nothing will happen to them because the enlightened West - not Allah - is their supreme guardian. And for any extra muscle they might need to keep the order they desire, heavily bankrolled foreign mercenaries are just the ticket. " As we see in Afghanistan and Libya, well-paid mercenaries are the current hot trend, look for a spew of movies about them soon...

Israel may not be strong-armed into scheduling more peace talks, but at least they will stand by when Egypt opens its border crossing this Saturday. Wouldn't Gaza be the perfect place for a picnic?
