Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.
Mark Twain

It was a strange week.
I bet you thought so too.

It pretty much started in a predictable way. The Republicans trying to steal pennies from widows and children and the Demarcates wringing their hands and shaking their heads wishing things would work out without all this fuss.

Then it started to get weird.

Everyone was going around making vague statements about where they stood on the Birth-er issue, except Donald Trump and of course Orly Tates. Trump was also continuing to talk about how good his relationship is with the Blacks. It sounded like it should be capitalized every time he said it.
Then President Obama released his Long Form Birth Certificate and screwed up Trumps investigation.
That was OK though because he had become convinced that Obama was a lousy student and thus couldn't have gotten into Ivy League schools on his own. Still waiting to hear where that goes.
I even heard some people wondering why he released the documentation now, that maybe he was trying to take attention away from something else.
It's true that he did announce a reorganization of his National Security team. It didn't get a lot of attention.
I'm hoping that the real reason that Gates is finally being replaced as Secretary of Defense is that Obama is looking to change our involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq. But that is probably wishful thinking.

Then they had that White House Corespondents dinner where Obama killed with his I'm an American bit and the way he stuck the knife in and twisted it on Trump and Michelle Bachmann. He also did a pretty good job of making fun of himself. I liked his time a lot better than Seth Meyers. I'm afraid it may come back to bite him though. He committed the unpardonable sin of pointing out how funny people who take themselves more seriously that the rest of the world really are.

Another strange thing that I have been noticing about the Trump running for President show. He works for NBC yet I see him On Letterman all the time on CBS and he spends a lot of time doing interviews with Fox Noise. He did a telephone interview Sunday morning on Fox and Friends crying about being ganged up on by Obama and Seth Meyers.

Then Obama had the bad taste on Sunday night of going on TV and announcing that he had ordered and the Navy Seals had carried out an operation that resulted in the death of Osama Bin Laden. A mission that Bush and his team never even came close to accomplishing. I did notice that some of the statements issued had Bush prominently mentioned as providing the leadership that Obama followed.

Now this was all pretty strange and unusual but can't compare to what happened to me on Thursday. I checked my mail and I had no bills, no credit card or AARP offers, or any other mail at all. This was the first time that had happened since I came home from the hospital 16 months ago.

Maybe the world is going to end on May 21st.
