Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

I know that I said, yesterday, that I am sick to death of politics. No…no, that wasn’t a lie.

You see, the thing is, the main reason I put together this round-up, these days, is not so much for my own pleasure (narcissist, though I may be), but to give SSG Dizzy (currently serving his third rotation in Iraq until Feb. 2009), something to look forward to every day and keep him up on current events, since his schedule, you know, in a war zone, is not conducive to hours and hours of web-surfing, like mine is.

That being said, yesterday’s political news was something of a mixed blessing. We said, “so long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good-bye…”, to that guy with the truly fabulous haircut and that other guy who liked to dress like RuPaul sometimes. Now, the media is crawling all over themselves turning this whole shebang into a three-way horse race between Mr. Clinton’s ol’ lady, that audacious dude and that old guy who thinks he’s one of the Beach Boys. Um…does the media realize that Chuck Norris’ friend is still in the running and that guy who wears funny undergarments still has a whole lotta money to spend and Dr. No and his Democrat twin, old Mike, are still hanging on by the skin of their teeth.

What I’m trying to say, folks, is that the fat lady has barely warmed up, she ain’t singing and this thing ain’t over by a long shot. Heck, the orchestra hasn’t even shown up yet!

Well, while the fat lady is out treating her voice with hot tea and honey, check out this State of the Union address you probably missed. You have to watch it until the end, where you will hear Clinton and Obama give their responses to the SOTU. And, please, be warned that you may want to put your morning cuppa down before watching this (I’m not kidding people…this is a bona fide warning!): Bush Parody: “The State of Our Union Is Not Something I’m Worried About”

I warned you, didn’t I?

Now that your keyboard is all nice and aired out, let’s proceed with today’s Ten Post Round-Up:

All I know is, that when the fat lady starts singing, I’m going to be waiting in my hand basket (well, until it lands in you-know-where)…

Peace.
