We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Oh it's easy for that guy to be funny. Iowa has 50' of topsoil. Let him come down here, to Cormac McCarthy County. See how rich his humor grows then. Out of stone and sand. With a scorpion in his boot and a fridge full of half eaten skunks.
And the Richest Metaphor of the Year award (well, it is only the 10th of Jan.) goes to BL. Don't let all the hot easy women that follow go to your head, they're only interested in your fridge full of half-eaten skunks.
Buddy, I think one of the reasons the press disliked Pres. Bush so much was because he often went home to Texas for vacation, even in the summertime. The Clintons went to Marthas' Vineyard or the Fingerlakes. Personally, I loved watching the press report "no news today" from a dusty Texas road in the 100+ degree Texas heat. That could also be why the press hate and fear Gov. Palin. Alaska for Christmas would be a NYT or a WaPo journalists' worst nightmare.
I am happy for all of you. I don't remember who said it. I think it was Karen. " It is an honor to sit at this table" Hell, I'm happy to sit on the floor at this table, and pick up the nuggets of wisdom that fall on the floor.
Marianne , said it well too. "A year round gift, that keeps giving"
I realize that I'm not as intellectual sound as a lot of you are. You all are so gracious to put up with my juvenile and sophomoric comments, and BD has demonstrated great patience with me.
But I must remind all of you that I am the Chairman of the Board. Which proves one thing. The more I screw up the more I get promoted. : )
BD, I love ya, but you will always be a bigger mama's boy then me.
My sincerest congratulations to you, BD, and your fellow maggiesfarmers. You deserve a grand prix [pricks?] for your measured, wide-ranging world view of life in general and the sad sorry world of politics in particular.
I'm with Meta, though. Where's the naked "tart of the week?" Maybe you could give us a pic of that dish, Hugh Jackman instead? Just once?
M’sF is Manswers with class... The WSJ with color... The National Geographic with attractive natives... Something Palin would read if she could... Easy enough for the daffy dyslexic... complex enough for the discerning doctor... It cannot be classified. Heck, even the mallards like it.
We've all heard the rumors about how you have been flattering and cajoling for this, even taking all those French lessons. Well, our international "betters" have inadvertently revealed their weakness by such an ostentatious award. We will remember, oh how we will remember.
