Oddly Enough Blog

John, this place is a PIGSTY!

October 1, 2008

I’ve written¬†about all the ice cream that presidential candidates get to eat, and some readers got the idea that campaigning is a great gig, just flying around for free and eating treats.

Call ’em the Blues Brothers?

Blog Guy, I keep reading¬†political stories from England that talk about a “shadow government.” As I understand it, this is sort of an opposition party team in the wings?

Thanks but no thanks, Cindy!

palin-global-initiative-2-200.jpgOh, what the heck is Cindy on about now?

She’s my boss’s wife, so I can’t say anything, but I’m tryin’ to watch “Burn After Reading,” and she’s here singin’ “Copacabana.” And she’s gettin’ the words WRONG! This is embarrassing!

Reflecting on the candidates

September 25, 2008

I was a bit startled to read that right under plans for the economy, a huge number of voters say they will make their presidential choice based on how the candidates look reflected in sunglasses.

Seems like this room used to be larger!

Blog Guy, didn’t President Bush address the United Nations General Assembly yesterday? Why haven’t I seen any photos or video of the event?

You’re SURE we’re supposed to throw these?

Recently, I ranted here about the sad state of today’s political protesters.

And now, more evidence that protest isn’t what it used to be. Note this caption informing us that these protesters are throwing “cobblestones, Molotov cocktails and shoes” at riot police.

Sarah! Time for another big hug!

palin-hug-latest-180.jpgOkay, this is a blog for grown-ups, so I’m going to ask this straight: Does it seem like Republican candidates John McCain and Sarah Palin hug a lot more than, say, the Democratic candidates?

He ain’t heavy, he’s my brothel…

revilla-head-140.jpgAs we wind down the longest election campaign in the history of Earth by dissecting the nuances of words like lipstick and pig, it seems a good time to check out attitudes in other countries.

It’s time to give the oath of office to your shoes…

Blog Guy, a couple of days ago you showed pictures of Sarah Palin’s shoes, and said that was an important part of covering prominent women. That was just a joke, right?

Macho, macho man, I wanna be…

Dear Blog Guy, President Bush leaves office in January. What does he plan to do? I thought with your contacts, you might know.
