Is it just me, or did you find it odd to hear a British accent coming out of the mouth of the CEO of Taco Bell, talking about the recent e-Coli scare?
Bono is upset with the new Democratic leadership of the incoming Congress. My man, Bono, was promised a bunch of money for his programs in Africa, a pleasant surprise to him after Clinton left office and those mean old Republicans took over the White House. So, after meetings on Capitol Hill in recent days, Senator Harry Reid has refused to guarantee to work with Republicans to ok the President's request for monies. I know, according to Kenye West, President Bush hates black people. But, alas, his administration has done more for the continent of Africa than any other previous administraton. And one of the President's twin daughters is working there, personally, and Laura Bush has been there to support projects more than any other first lady has been. Hmm.
Seems we have substance over symbolism with this administration instead of the reverse from the old Clinton days. They were all about the symbolism and nothing much else. Remember the trip to Africa Hillary and Chelsea took and a big photo op was made of native Africans doing tribal dancing for them. Performing for the big shots.
I know it's fun to go to the old canards in arguments but the dinosaur liberal thinking and talking points just don't play in modern times. Joy Behar, the "comedian" on The View, equated Donald Rumsfeld with Hitler yesterday on the show. Wow, how original to put Hitler and a Republican in the same sentence. Even Jon Stewart says only Hitler was Hitler. Maybe she was just sucking up to Rosie.
This is Kofi Annan's last week of officially presiding over the U.N. Finally. Alas, we have one more scandal trickling out as he departs. Seems Kofi and his wife, the tall, attractive blonde at his side have been living in another apartment than the one they are on paper as occupying. They are on the lease for an apartment that is subsidized by the taxpayers of the City of New York but they live in another place. Kofi's brother lives in the subsidized place. And why was he given the break for housing anyway? His wife is a member of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden and they are not in need. Just greedy, of course. Like all of his corrupt, pocket-lining deals through the U.N.
One more for the road.
I have been watching the NASA channel the past couple of days when I need distraction. It is so incredible to think of watching an astronaut working on the space station in real time on tv.
The tickets to "Spamalot" have been purchased. The traveling company from Broadway will be here at the end of May for a couple of weeks. My guys, especially, are huge Monty Python fans so we are all looking forward to treat.
