FROM THE CHURCH OF INEFFABLE STUPIDITY:
– – – –
A) On Multitasking
A visit to the Gulf.
A high level talk with China, South Korea, Russia, and his DOD and National Security Council on North Korea.
A sit down with hostile republicans. ER Surgeons called in to reattach his arm after he offers to shake hands.
Aid to California pols at a a fund raiser.
A conference call on Greek economic troubles, probable solutions.
A meeting on America’s in the rut jobless rates.
A conference on Jamaican riots and drug war.
A meeting with congressional leaders on DADT.
A briefing on the Gulf Spill.
A press conference.
A long call to South Korea, including local US military intel aides.
A kiss for both daughters and hug for the wife.
A political dinner.
A conference call with Mexican leaders re: drugs, immigration, gun imports.
Any single one of these topics (except the kisses and hugs) would consume us, and most of our time. Yet, on top of inheriting two really bad wars and occupations, a horrendous budget, a depression-like economy, angry voters, terrible jobless numbers, our president faces a badly divided congress, part of which marches in lockstep to deny him any and every rational policy victory, and another part infiltrated by DINOs whose only talent lies in how far they can anally insert their heads.
You’d have to be a little crazy to want that job. W’s frequent vacations now make a lot of sense. I cannot imagine being in his shoes, not even for a few hours. I wouldn’t even know how to rate these issues in terms of importance. NK? The Gulf? Jamaican drug wars? The Economy? Talk about a full plate.

B) Nikki Haley (R) and very late hour chats
34 hours. 2 months.
When you add to that, that most of these calls came very late at night, and lasted a long time, somehow you might begin to suspect that they weren’t talking about politics.
For those who don’t follow red state politics, all you need to know is that Bible Spice endorsed Haley, and thinks that she is a kindred spirit. Enough said? Given Sarah’s track record, it sure seems as though her endorsement is The Kiss Of The Locust. Just ask Vaughn Ward.
Apparently, South Carolina covets a new motto: “SC’s for lovers.” With 14 years of marriage, and at least one out of wedlock afair, Ms. Haley’s election chances appear to be fading. So much for her family values campaign.

C) Does he receive a Kiss of the Locust?
Briton Robert Dee, feeling humiliated at being called the “world’s worst tennis pro” by London’s Daily Telegraph (and other news organizations) sued the newspaper for libel last year. After taking testimony in February 2010, the judge tossed out the lawsuit in April, persuaded by Dee’s having lost 54 consecutive international tour matches (all in straight sets).
The worst tennis pro in the world. Heh, after he threatened other papers, some actually settled out of court with him. Ah, yes, a game where love means nothing, a first fault always gives you a second chance, and landing in the court has nothing to to do with lawsuits.

D) Sarah’s Palin Wall
The infamous Berlin Wall had nothing on this one.
Normally, building and maintaining good fences makes for great relations with your neighbor. (except mine) In Sarah Palin’s case, (of course) it is anything but normal.
Sarah owed some $$$$ to a neighbor for work the neighbor did on Sarah’s house. Sarah, being the greedy, small-minded, reactionary cheapskate that she is, refused to pay. The neighbor got revenge by leasing his home next door to a novelist, Joe McGinniss, who is planning a less than flattering and “no spin” based book on Bible Spice. Here were Sarah’s choices:
a) Apologize to the neighbor for stiffing them on their fee.
b) Pay the damned bill from those millions she has earned.
c) Build a really ugly 14 foot fence between her house and the neighbor’s. Place mines and barbed wire around the perimeter. Have armed guards keep watch from armored towers.
Guess which she did. That’s a REALLY ugly fence, Bible Spice
