Talk about sophisticated nuance: look who's running for the European Parliament:
A porn star is to stand for election as a Czech Euro MP in the European Parliament elections in June.
Dolly Buster, 34, whose real name is Katerina Bochnickova, has been chosen as the Independent Initiative's candidate[.]
But wait there's more: adult film is not her only talent.
She has made millions both as a porn star and also as a successful crime writer.
Her books follow German porn-star-turned-amateur-sleuth Lilly DeLight as she solves murders that baffle bumbling police officers.
Hey: why don't we have crime-novel writing, adult-film stars running for seats in our legislature?
Take Your Kid to School Day
I like the way they do it across the pond:
The commanding officer of a navy ship dropped his son off at school in a helicopter and blew out a large window in the process.
Say: why don't we have... you know the rest.
I like Dennis Miller:
The United States right now is simultaneously the world's most loved, hated, feared and admired nation, [Miller] said.
"In short," he said, "we're Frank Sinatra."
(My Way News)
we know why the USA is so multilateral and stuff. It's obvious when you think about it: how did the Chairman of the Board do things?
By the way, you can take this analogy as far as you like. Just imagine good old Frank swaggering around the world, accompanied by a "Rat Pack of the Willing." Together they're belting out the tunes and booting out the tyrants... all the while not spilling a drop of the cocktails they're carrying. We're the swanky superpower, and when we're finished with this gig we're going back to the mansion and carry on with the FLOTUS
. Or cut another Duets
album, this time with Eminem and Hanson. WWFD?
Are we there yet? Are we there yet?
Ladies and Gentlemen, Howard Dean:
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean said Sunday that the standard of living for Iraqis is a "whole lot worse" since Saddam Hussein's removal from power in last year's American-led invasion.
"You can say that it's great that Saddam is gone and I'm sure that a lot of Iraqis feel it is great that Saddam is gone," said the former Vermont governor, an unflinching critic of the war against Iraq. "But a lot of them gave their lives. And their living standard is a whole lot worse now than it was before."
Well yes, the Iraqis who died... their standard of living is certainly reduced. To zero, you might say. But if Dr. Dean is referring to the survivors, he's off-base. The Iraqis are at long last free. Their old tyrant is in their jail; his plastic shredders are silent, and his day in their court is soon approaching.
Sure Iraqis live in the new Wild West. But if you had a choice between the frontier or the gulag, which standard of living would you say is better?
Combining Dean's statement with Nancy Pelosi's declaration that "we could have probably brought down that statue for a lot less
," one may reasonably conclude that the Democratic Party is the back-seat driver of American Politics -- heavy on the bitching and light on the alternatives. For example:
"Now I would never defend Saddam Hussein," Dean told the "Women for Dean" rally. "He's a horrible person. I'm delighted he's gone. Would there not have been a better way to get rid of him in cooperation with the United Nations?"
Is that the same United Nations which surrendered and fled after a single car bomb
? And Dr. Dean thinks he could get them to wave their magic wand and make everything better? Is he seriously proposing a replacement for pre-emption or is he just carping and grumbling.
As America's back-seat drivers approach the national elections, they really should remember that they can't beat something with nothing.
