This has been going around the internet. I suppose everyone has seen it, but it’s so funny I couldn’t help sticking it in here. This is via the Corner.

I don't think I've ever seen such a look of misery and dejection on the face of my daughter as I just did a moment ago. She just couldn't understand why the President would be going to Iraq when so many things are wrong in this country.

"Doesn’t Mr. Bush care about us anymore?" she asked pitifully.

I sat down with her on the sofa and (as calmly as I could) tried to explain to her why the President seems to be abandoning his country. "Honey, I think his boss, Mr. Rove, sent Mr. Bush out of the country in order to keep himself out of the newspapers. You see, he wasn’t sure if he was going to be arrested today or not, and so he planned Mr. Bush’s trip ahead of time just in case...

”I tried to keep my voice steady, but it became increasingly difficult - the rage and feelings of helplessness were just too much. I think my daughter could tell something was wrong. I found myself at such a loss for words - nothing made any sense; nothing makes sense anymore. I finally had to admit, "Honey, I just don't know - I don't know what's going on in this country anymore..."

When I finished her lower lip started to tremble and her eyes began to fill with tears, "Daddy" she said, "why are the Republicans doing this to the country?" Well, that was it for me: I finally fell apart. She just fell into my arms and we both began sobbing for several minutes.

For once she had to comfort me and get me back on my feet. Sometimes I just think it's too much, but seeing the strength in my young daughter's voice helped me to get through.

This was a comment on Daily Kos. It was posted by someone who called himself Cheche. This has to be a brilliant put-on. So far no one is taking credit. My congratulations to the author.


Whenever you walk on pavement with shoes on, look around for chewing gum to step on. When you have the bottom of your shoes covered with gum, you’ll be wearing out the gum instead of the soles of your shoes.


Remember when we wondered, a long time ago, what those girls getting tattoos would do when they became grandmothers?

I found the answer.

They’re doing porno on the internet.
