Do We Really Need Another Comedian In The Senate?

Former Saturday Night Live comedian Al Franken has been declared the winner of the senate race in the state of Minnesota. This comes from the people who elected such great leaders as pro-wrestler and former Governor Jesse Ventura. In a time where the state of Illinois is the current champion of electing thieves, idiots and con men, it seems that Minnesota is attempting to usurp the throne and take over as the top provider of useless politicians. Then again, the current do-nothing U.S. Congress has been classified as the worst in history. In classic gridlock, the current Congress merely postures and takes stands which benefit their particular party instead of working together and the American public suffers.

The question is, do we need another comedian in the U.S. Senate? I say, what the hell, we already have body builder Arnold Schwarzenegger and pro-wrestler Ventura being elected by supposedly intelligent people, why not add Al Franken to the circus? After the this year elections, obviously anyone can get a job in politics. To round out these motley circus clowns, why not throw in whoever wins this year's American Idol show into the mix and add the "Podium Al" Sharpton as ambassador at large (pun intended).

Congratulations to The University of Florida who defeated the University of Oklahoma 24-14 in last night's BCS football championship in Miami. A classic game, it was relatively well played by both sides and considering the pressure of the event, there weren't many mistakes. It was close until the final quarter and the outcome was still in doubt until the final three minutes.

Question Of The Day Why is Red Truck Man asking for a happy hour meeting and what are his motives? I wonder if it has anything to do with the go-go golfing caper? More importantly, is Raul still in Venezuela? A recent copy of the Miami Herald may help explain...

It's Friday and chances are I'll mosey over to AREA 51 to see what's going on. I say "chances are" because I'm still having problems with my stubborn ankle which I injured a couple of weeks ago. It's looking better this afternoon than it did last night but I won't make a decision until "game time."

The Cat's Ass (CAT) Award has been unusually void of nominees for some time. Remember that anyone may nominate a stupid act by any person and we'll honor that stupidity with the Cat Award, so keep your eyes open.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

A man passed out on the beach in Miami for four hours, and got a horrible sunburn, specifically to the front of his legs above his knees. He went to the hospital, and was promptly admitted after being diagnosed with second-degree burns with his skin already starting to blister,and the severe pain he was in, the doctor prescribed continuous intravenous feeding with saline, electrolytes, a sedative, and a viagra.

The nurse, who was rather astounded, asked, "What good will Viagra do for him, Doctor?" The doctor replied, 'It won't do anything for his condition, but it'll keep the sheets off his legs.

Dolly Parton and Queen Elizabeth both pass away on the same day and they both go before an angel to find out if they'll be admitted to Heaven. Unfortunately, there's only one space left that day, so the angel must decide which of them gets in.

The angel asks Dolly if there's some particular reason why she should get into Heaven. Dolly takes off her top and says, "Look at these, they're the most perfect breasts God ever created, and I'm sure the angels will be pleased to see them every day, for eternity."

The angel thanks Dolly, and asks Her Majesty the same question. The Queen takes a bottle of Perrier out of her purse,Shakes it up, and gargles. Then, she spits into a toilet and pulls the lever. The angel chuckles and says, "Okay, Your Majesty, you may go in."

Dolly is outraged and asks, "What was that all about? I show you two of God's own perfect creations and you turn me down. She spits into a commode and gets in! Would you explain that to me? The angel says, "Sorry Dolly, but, even in Heaven, a royal flush beats a pair, no matter how big they are !

That's it for today my little Puddin' Pops. Have a great and safe weekend and more on Monday.

Stay Tuned !

Certainly lends a different twist to a royal flush! Shoulda know you'd make the big time in Vegas...after all the Miami Herald said so!

I missed Woody...glad he was back for a brief appearance. I, too miss AOL former feature for the photos.

When I sprained my ankle real bad once. I was instructed to exercise the ankle by making the alphabet with your foot, A, B, C and so on. Do this daily and it will strengthen you ankle. It helped me. Good Luck

Enjoyed the Dolly joke!

Careful tonight with your ankle...dancing may not be a good idea.

Hugs, Rose

Have a good weekend.

"Keep the sheets off his legs ?!?" That's a good one. By the way I love it when I see some of my email contributions end up in your Blog. No rain here today...I actually went out & pruned my roses earlier. But parts of the state are still in deep water. And folks have lost everything. Very sad. Linda in unpredictable Washington

Oh I heard on the noon news that the vote was a million to one (well not exactly a million~but close) to start impeachment proceedings against Bag-don-a-vich or whatever the heck his name is in Illinois. It's about time!

I heard that MN counted some of their votes twice. What ever happened to that pristine state of 10,000 lakes and sky blue water??

I think the biggest joke of all is if Jeb gets a senate seat

Missy said...

I always thought it was weird that "The Terminator" was governor.

OMG, this entry had Rick and I both rolling on the floor laughing. Gee, the ankle injury wouldn't date to your week of heavy parting a while back would it? By the way, weird the way your google adds are to eliminate pubic hair, do you get to pick the ads, LOL.
