“On AIG why did you wait days to express that outrage…it took you days to come public with Secretary Geithner and say ‘look, we’re outraged’—why did it take you so long?”—Ed Henry, CNN journalist

“It took us a couple of days because I like to know what I’m talking about before I speak.”—President Barack Obama

This was, by far, the highlight of last night’s press conference for me.  Ed Henry got owned.


I’m taking bets now, though, that we’ll start noticing CNN’s news coverage of Obama become steadily—oh, how shall I put it—less “friendly.”  We’ll see.

Nevertheless, I think we should all follow the President’s lead on this one.

Via The Huffington Post:

“Obama embraces his Irish heritage (his his great-great-great-grandfather Falmouth Kearney was from the [Irish] village of Moneygall)…”

Well, then.  If they’re gonna take it that far back, maybe I need to be doing some geneaological research to locate my Irish kinfolk.  It’ll be like Roots all over again!  Lol!

But anyway, I love St. Patrick’s Day and  I LOVE the color GREEN (“money green”, to be exact).

Have a glorious St. Patty’s Day,

In and Out of Time


In and Out of Time

The sun has come.
The mists have gone.
We see in the distance
our long way home.
I was always yours to have.
You were always mine.
We have loved each other in and out of time.
When the first stone looked up at the blazing sun
and the first tree struggled up from the forest floor
I had always loved you more.
You freed your braids,
gave your hair to the breeze.
It hummed like a hive of honey bees.
I reached in the mass for the sweet honey comb there,
Mmmm…God how I love your hair.
You saw me bludgeoned by circumstance.
Lost, injured, hurt by chance.
I screamed to the heavens….loudly screamed….
Trying to change our nightmares to dreams.
The sun has come.
The mists have gone.
We see in the distance our long way home.
I was yours to have.
And you were always mine.
We loved each other in and out,
in and out,
in and out of time.

Beneath the skin,
beyond the differing features and into the true heart of being, fundamentally, we are more alike, my friend,
than we are  unalike.
