Well, Damn

May 30, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

I just realized that I won’t have Leo Berman to kick around any more.

Well, damn.  Just damn.

Oh, I’m sure the Republicans will come up with an amusing replacement.

Skip felt so bad for me, that he sent this to make me feel better.

It did.

For those of you not ultra hip like me, it’s become an internet meme.  Romneys’ iPhone app misspells America.

Add This To The Things You Did Not Know

Jabba the Ailes, head of Fox News, is making an interesting claim.

We have one conservative on FOX News, Sean Hannity. Quite open about it, that’s what he is, that’s what he does, that’s his framework, that’s where he comes from. Others tend to be libertarians or populists or you can’t really tell.

Ailes defended his network, saying he was not politically biased compared with competitors MSNBC and CNN. Ailes said he employs 24 “liberals,” which distinguishes him from those networks who feature fewer dissenting opinions.

So Steve Doocy, Greta Van Susteren, Dick Morris, Megyn Kelly, and Bill O’Rielly are flaming liberals.

See, you didn’t know that.  Aren’t you glad you get your hair done here so you know not to believe your lying eyes and ears?

Thanks to Iris for the heads-up.

Post Election Hangover

May 30, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay, okay, okay, dammit.  I’m up. I’m up.  Quit bellerin’ at me.

I truly am typing in my jammies this morning.  I did not have a drop to drink last night, and Lord knows I won’t until in January when Chief Deputy Prissypants leaves office, but I still feel hungover.

There was great news (see below), pretty good news, semi-good news and awful news.  As someone wise texted to me last night when mixed news came in, “Every election is a combination of schadenfreude and heartache.  Except 2000. That one just flat out sucked.”

When I get my head on straight, I will tell you the awful news that Judge Steven Kirkland, maybe the best judge in Harris County, got beat by a crazy incompetent woman funded by a rich Republican lawyer intent on screwing the system.  And then there’s the good news that Lane Lewis beat the shameless lady.

I will tell you about the absolutely worst candidate I have ever dealt with in my entire life, and he claims to be a Democrat.  Personally, I think he’s just a giant wad of ego on a stick dipped in sprinkles and then fried, but he says he’s not.  However, I have no proof of that, just his word.  In the Democratic primary for Congressional District 22, K P George lost to the woman who wants to impeach President Obama.   Yes, I said the Democratic primary, where President Obama got 95% of the vote, this guy loses to a woman who wants to impeach Obama.  Not in my county, mind you, because I don’t let things like that happen, but K P George went to the other counties in the district and personally nullified all our hard work.  It’s a story of ego gone wild.

I was happy to see that some of my other buddies won, too.

I’m gonna take a long shower, brush my hair, maybe, just maybe, get dressed, and come back and write about other things going on in the world.

Election Night Giggles

May 29, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

It’s 9:45 on election night and I can’t stop giggling.

You know the Chief Deputy at the Sheriff’s Office who started running for sheriff 4 years ago and we had some fun here telling him everything he was doing wrong?  I mean, I thought that was real sweet of us, trying to help him win and all.

But he didn’t listen.

Instead he spent $550,000 for a race where the pay is $105,000 a year.  And, at this time right now, he’s got a whoppin’ 33% of the vote.  You read that right.  He spend half a million dollars to run for sheriff, five times what anyone has ever spent for any race that I know of in the county.

And he got beat so bad that his grandchildren will be born shaking.  He’s got pounded so bad that he’ll have to unzip his pants to see out tomorrow morning.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and they are right about that in this case.  I scampered by my own voting precinct today and Brady’s opponent had people meeting voters at their cars and asking for their vote.  Craig Brady thought this poll was so important that he had the current retiring sheriff hisownself there to campaign for him.

Sitting in the shade.

That’s the sheriff in the red shirt, lounging under a tree.  You couldn’t even see him from the voting location.  Plus, to make matters even worse, that’s Brady’s opponent’s sign right there in front of them.  You can see a tee-tiny little corner of Brady’s sign in yellow sticking just a tad out, like the sheriff, who is supposed to be Brady’s friend, is trying to hide it.  I went by at 10:00 am. I went back at noon.  I went back at 5:00 and there he still sat.  I never saw a man that good at sittin’.

And that, my friend, is how these ole boys ran the sheriff’s department.  They spend a boatload of money and then sit around on their beehinds, hoping crimes will solve themselves.

Schadenfreude is so sweet.

And for locals, just remember this:  Brady may have won the battle against Bev Carter but, dammit, she won the war!  Big time.

Well, Of Course They Dedicated It Behind Closed Doors. I Don’t Think Snickering Is Allowed At The Missouri House

May 29, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

So, along side Harry S Truman and Stan Musial, the Missouri House of Representative decided to put a bust of Rush Limbaugh.

Bust is a funny word to use for this, being as how Rush is always pulling at his shirt, like his bra is too tight.  However, they couldn’t have put a full statue because there’s not enough copper and tin the world to make a statue of Rush.

The induction ceremony was closed-door.  I do not want to know what they did behind that closed door because I’m sure it involved drugs, hookers, and guns.  Face it, Rush is Hunter Thompson minus the self-effacing sense of humor about it all.

Anyway, now we find out that Missouri taxpayers are footing the bill for a $1,000 security camera for Rush’s bust.

Hell, Dolly Parton doesn’t need a $1,100 security camera for her bust.

You’ll be happy to know that woman gets the last word.

Assistant House Minority Leader Tishaura Jones told the AP she thought the taxpayer money had better places to go.

“If they thought that the bust might be defaced or vandalized and they have to guard it with a camera, it’s another indication that maybe they shouldn’t have put it there,” said Jones, D-St. Louis. “It’s another chapter in this never-ending saga of this man who deserves no honor in the people’s house.”

You go, Girl!

Why Republicans oppose birth control.

Seriously.  They really are.

Thanks to Sue for the heads-up.
