“They can’t give any money and they can’t vote. I don’t know why you’d take time to do it.” – Former RNC Chairman Jim Nicholson responding to a report in Politico that the Republican National Committee is trying to set up meetings between Chairman Michael Steele and foreign ambassadors to the United States


“The GOP doesn’t have a single, solitary new idea for economic recovery.” – President Barack Obama at a Democratic Party event in Atlanta on Monday.

“I am pro-life, and I’ll answer the next question. I don’t believe in the exceptions of rape or incest. I believe that the only exception, I guess, is life of the mother. And that is only if it’s truly life of the mother.” – Tea Party-backed contender Ken Buck, who’s facing-off against Jane Norton in Colorado’s GOP Senate primary says he firmly opposes abortion rights and doesn’t “believe in the exceptions of rape or incest.”

“Tomorrow [the 4th]is Obama’s birthday, not that we’ve seen any proof of that… What? We haven’t seen any proof of that! They tell us August 4th is the birthday; we haven’t seen any proof of that! Sorry. It is what it is.’ – Talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh during his show Tuesday.


Boehner Hits — Then Praises — Obama Over Iraq Strategy – Roll Call


“See, what had happened was, hic, I was for it before I was against it. Hic.”

Democrats say they've drained the swamp of corruption, but there are 2 upcoming ethics trials


Michael Steele

“Are you an ambassador or ambassadoress?”


Let’s see, so far this week GOP leaders have called for extending the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2% in the country, called for repealing the 14th amendment to the Constitution and are blocking the Oil Spill Reform Bill. Oh yeah, RNC chairman MC Michael Steele is reportedly trying to set up meetings with foreign ambassadors to the United States. Did I mention that it’s only Wednesday? I swear, if the Democrats lose either chamber of Congress this November, they should just disband the band and start over.

As August begins and Congress’ summer recess looms around the corner, President Obama has stepped up his attack on the GOP and their promised agenda should they regain control of the House or Senate or both in the fall elections. On Monday he said that they don’t have a “Single, solitary new idea for economic recovery”.

Speaking of the August recess, I hope House Minority Leader John “The Orange Undertaker” Boehner spends part of his getting caught up with his family. A few weeks ago, Boehner told a Pittsburgh newspaper that three of his brothers had lost their jobs due to the economic crisis but he didn’t know if they were still unemployed.

It turns out that Sarah Palin is tri-lingual; she speaks her version of English, bad Spanish and pure, unadulterated “authentic Alaskan frontier gibberish”.

I suspect that something happened to Alvin Greene sometime between his enlisting in the Air Force (why he didn’t go in as an officer is surprising to me) and when he left active duty. I say this because of my experience working with mental health patients while in the Air Force – I saw many people who had a breakdown of some sort and were never the same again – and the fact that I find it hard to believe that the Alvin Greene we see today is the same one who graduated from the University of South Carolina.

In Greta Van Susteren’s defense,  I always get Beyonce and Brandy mixed up, for years, I NEVER could tell Michael Jackson and Prince or Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder or Dr J and Dr Dre or Ice Cube and Ice-T apart and frankly, I’m still confused on which one is Mary in “Mary Mary” and which one is Tia and which one is Tamera Mowry.

And, I’m still trying to figure out which one is Joel Osteen and which one is Rick Warren.


L-R Nicole Eggert, Gena Lee Nolin and Traci Bingham at Comedy Central’s David Hasselhoff Roast. Think they look bad here? Can you imagine what they’d look like if the show was still on and they were spending hours in the sun?

Whenever I see Lil’ Jon and his pimp cup on TMZ, I can’t help but think, “Wow, I thought pimp cups went out with throwback jerseys.”

Speaking of pimp cups, has anyone seen Bishop Don Magic Juan lately? Seems that the pimp turned spiritual advisor to Snoop Dogg has dropped out of sight since Snoop was forced to downsize his posse last year.

Now that Chelsea Clinton, Alicia Keys, T.I. and Jazzy Jeff have all gotten married, the tabloid media can get back to the important celebrity questions of is Mel Gibson really crazy (you betcha) and what will be Lindsey Lohan’s first post-rehab slutty act (I’m betting on lesbians, midgets and cigarettes).

Well, now we know it wasn’t Kevin Eubanks making Jay Leno boring as hell.

Why is it that Nick Cannon always looks like a kid wearing his dad’s suits on America’s Got Talent? By the way, isn’t it insulting to be judged by Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel? And while we’re talking about reality TV talents shows, it’s one thing for say, Quincy Jones to tell you that he doesn’t like your singing but, Ellen Degeneres? Jennifer Lopez? Screeching like a cat Steven Tyler? That’s like being told by Urkel that you’re a snappy dresser. At least Randy Jackson is a talented musician and producer and Kara De Guardi has written many hit songs and worked with top singers in her career.

When Jerry Rice is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend, he will most likely be that last great player from a HBCU (Mississippi Valley State), to be elected on a regular (not Veteran’s Committee) ballot.
