Flying shoes

He threw his shoes at our president.
Okay, I'm no fan of Bush and will be glad when his reign is over but at this point he's still our president and I can't help getting upset that some wacko is hurling objects at him.
I don't care that it's some kind of insult in that country because it really means nothing here, (Unless you're Austin Powers?) but until January 20th Bush is still our president and we should defend him.
Other than that I thought he handled it well. He joked and made light of it and moved on.
Now what do you think about the reaction time of the Secret Service?

Senate Seat for Sale...

Did he really think he'd get away with this?
Okay, ego is one thing but selling a senate seat to the highest bidder? Really?

In case you missed it, read here. Gov. Rod Blagojevich thought he could make some personal profit from selling the seat vacated by Prez-elect Obama.

I would think the best he should have hoped for was an assignment to Obama's cabinet yet this guy figures he can take the highest bidder for personal profit. (Did he forget about ebay? Things go for really big bucks there.)

No, instead he plays let's make a deal. Gotta job for my wife? Good salary for me? I'll start up a non-profit and you can pay me big bucks and POOF! You're a senator!

I understand politics, I know how the appointment game gets played but there are somethings ya probably shouldn't try. Selling Senate seats is probably one of them.

Rumor: Jesse Jackson was involved. Eh, I doubt that. Jesse denies it and I believe him. I'm not a fan but he's too smart for this stuff.

Okay, now I have to say one more thing: What's up with that hair?
