I'LL TAKE BULLSHIT FOR $200, JACKIE


This is one of those ain't about nothing but just a little about a bunch of stuff...
First of all....Forest Gump has come out for John McCain...If that doesn't scare the shit out of you then nothing will..McCain as president..will be 4 more years of the same ole shit..First of all I think John McCain is still suffering from PTS, from Vietnam..Some times when you see him on TV he has that dopey eyed look from too much medication.. and then I watched him on some news show and I've never seen anyone blink so many times in 3 minutes in my entire life. I'm not sure if he was trying to keep from passing out or it's some sort of nervous tic.
Either way it was spooky..Plus anyone that would allow some one like Forest Gump and his crew make up so many lies about you and then be seen kissing his ass and hugging him...well, he gets no respect from me..I'm sorry he was held captive by Charlie, but not sorry enough to let him get a pass for the president of the united state's. Who the fuck am I kidding, I wouldn't vote for him anyhow..he's a fucking republican..
Now for something important..NBC has extended Life for another season...If you haven't seen this TV show, you should...First of all it's a great show with great story line, great writing, but more important?...Damien Lewis is hot.
It doesn't hurt that he resembles Steve McQueen either..I think the first time I remember seeing him in anything was Band of Brothers, which was most excellent, and he was just terrific in it...Now he's on NBC in his very own little TV show which co-stars Adam Arkin another one of my personal favorites..He plays a cop who got framed for a crime, did his 10 years where he became a Buddhist, met Adam and then they proved he was not guilty and the city of L.A. had to pay him like $10 million bucks...But he's back on the force, being a cop, and looking for who done him wrong...Great show.
More exciting news?...I just finished the Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz and it was hysterical...I really loved this book...It's not anything like the Name of the Wind, but it's still a great book...I think this is her first book but she had written and rewritten a screenplay called Plan B, a mob film which I haven't seen. But she swore off screenplays and wrote this funny funny book, with a list of the weirdest family since my family reunion..They are all private investigators and they do back ground checks on the daughters boyfriends, are constantly fixing her up with lawyers and she has a list of boyfriends listed as X-boyfriend #1, #2, etc..There is even a small kid detective who between scarfing down sugared cereals and beef jerky follows everyone around the city of San Francisco..So yes, this is another book I'm pushing..If you want a good laugh...and lots of them..this is the book for you..
It's raining...now I don't have to go do laundry..I'm sure the neighbors won't mind that I'm still wearing the old cowboys t-shirt..it's actually starting to smell like one of the players wore it, while being gang tackled by the Green Bay Packers...There are a lot of pluses living alone..Lucky for me..Annie doesn't care what I smell like as long as I keep her fed and watered..fuckme til I make the team.

Oh god, don't get me started on McCain! Only idiots in this country would even think about electing a man in the early stages of Alzheimers disease to be their next president. Which pretty much means we're all screwed JS!

sageweb said...

I love Life...the show. I completely forgot about it. But my DVR is set up to catch any new episodes. I am glad they are giving it another year. But I hope they end this season with him prooving who did. They better not stretch it out for two years. I think his lady sidekick is hot!

Lily Strange said...

I like McCain as a human being and admire him for what he went through. But I wouldn't want him in office. My mother (who was once on the FBI's shit list for being involved in Viet Nam war protests) said last night "oh hell, if he got in office, this war could go on for another 20 years."
I think I'd rather have seen Romney in office than McCain and my take on him was that he seemed like he'd make a nice neighbor but I wouldn't want him in office.
But Suntard, we had Reagan and he had Alzheimer's WHILE he was in office! I'm actually serious about this. I think he had early stage Alzheimer's while Nancy and George--I mean, Ronnie himself (ha!) was running this country. :0p

yellowdog granny said...

suntard:yeah, like reagan wasn't in full bloom alzheimers...i dont trust him any further than i can toss him...
sage:im with you..i hope they find out who did it and soon...yeah, the chicks are cute too..
lily:yup..it would be just 4 more years of the same bullshit we have right now..

jan said...

I can't believe how politicians love each other after all the slit slinging is over, but strange bedfellows and all.

BTW, you haven't told us which candidate gets the coveted Yellowdog Granny Endorsement in Texas.

yellowdog granny said...

jan:kathy just called me and it's been canceled until later as over 50 of the old folks have the 'crud' and they have the whole place on lock down so no one can get in and give it to anymore..thursday they are having their vote so will do all the paper work and give it to kathy so she can give it to them...


oh haven't i mentioned it?



obama...

Anne Johnson said...

I can't believe that you can read as many books as you do as fast as you do, and still have time to watch tv. I can barely trudge through a book, and I don't watch any tv at all. There's a Jane Austen remake down there on TiVo that I can't get to no matter how hard I try!

I wouldn't vote Republican if they dug Lincoln up and woke him up and gave him the nomination.

Juanuchis said...

I liked McCain ages ago. He should've gotten the Republican nomination in 2000. But sometime in the last two years, he started to sound like W's parrot.

But then, I'm no Republican. :)

It's making for an interesting election year...

I agree with Anne. I love to read, and now my "to read" stack is quite unmanageable. But still, I add to it! Right now I'm on book 2 of the Liturgical Mysteries series by Mark Schweizer, The Baritone Wore Chiffon. Screamingly funny, especially if you're Episcopalian. :)

Gadfly said...

Yeah. There's something about McCain that makes you want to have some pepper spray handy.

Ted said...

John McAmnesty/McCensorship for President...Yeah, right! Of course President amBush anointed him: He murdered the Constitution, and Mark-Of-McCain will see it gets buried forever.
The only GOPher that was worth voting for was Ron Paul, and that's only because he didn't suck as much as the others.
I'm starting a blog about the only way out of this mess, and politicians ain't it.

yellowdog granny said...

anne:ive always read fast..and i can watch tv, read at the same time..read during commercials and sex scenes..ha
juan:well, since im a pagan, i doubt if i'll be running to the library to check it out..ha thanks for stopping by..
gadfly:and a sharp stick..
holy shit i dropped by to say howdy and made the mistake of clicking on the video...holy shit..
ted:yup, I liked ron paul too...well, considering that all republicans are a lying sack of shit..he's the most acceptable..

Juanuchis said...

Gran, understand. I was a pagan for awhile some years ago. I still have a great interest in paganism and there's a goodly part of me that is still pagan (past live maybe?).

billy pilgrim said...

who would you rather be stuck on a deserted island with; hillary, barrack or john?

i think i'd take john.

texlahoma said...

I guess McCain couldn't come up with enough money in time to stop Bush from endorsing him.

yellowdog granny said...

juan:good, didn't want to offend anyone....
snort*giggle..like ive never done that before..
billy:yeah, but we're not stranded on a desert island and i want someone that doesn't have that 1,000 mile stare...
tex:i bet he was pleading with bush and the old man..please please..don't endores me..endorse hucklebee

kath said...

Just here to say hello.... TIRED! and will be back tomorrow for more catching up..
but until then.. Hi woman!

mapiprincesa! said...

Hi, there...you are a HOOT. I got you through Windy's site. I LOVE the countdown to the End of the Error...

Looking forward to reading much more of you.

Be well, Granny.

TheBratPrince said...

When you said "Forrest Gump" I thought you meant Tom Hanks.

That seemed very obtuse and hurt my brain until I figured it out.

I don't think the movie Forrest Gump would support McCain. Forrest had a lot of deep wisdom, compassion, and I don't know, humanity.

I would say "decent person" but those don't seem to exist much anymore.

Love and stuff!

yellowdog granny said...

kath:good to see you...get some rest..
mapiprincesa:welcome, welcome..glad you like it here..it gets a little rouwdy, but we do have fun..
bratprince:you should go to the library and read the book forest gump..he's not the forest gump of the movie..we have different visions of the movie forest gump..I hated that movie and thought it was the dumbest thing i ever saw..and was just a supid ole hick..which is why i compare george to him..
where you been?

TheBratPrince said...

Hmmmm I shall have to investigate this further.

That fella on your blog is damn sexy. I'll take two, please.

yellowdog granny said...

i read the book and thought man they did a lot of editing to get THIS forest gump to the one thom hanks played in the movie...
yeah, isn't he hot..damn..makes me wish i was 30 again..doesn't he look like steve mcqueen?

Nit Wit said...

McCain proved he was a sellout when he sucked up to Pat Robertson and the religious right. His Hugging of The Gump was kinda like hazing in a frat. Gotta do it or you don't get in.

I like Obama too. I really like his wife. She isn't an empty shell on Prozac like the current First Lady.
I'm afraid that Edwards is going to cave into the party hacks and endorse Hillary though.
Hillary and McCain are already starting to gang up on Obama. The Republicans want to run against Hillary because they know they have a chance to beat her.

Juanuchis said...

Just saw a CNN piece on "Obamamania". Some columnist called it "Obamaphilia". "Creepy", "cult-like" were also thrown out.

This is a far cry from the charisma of a Hitler or a Jim Jones! This country has been without a charismatic presidential candidate far too long. I suppose the argument could be made that Bill Clinton was the last, but maybe not even that. JFK would be my guess (I was an infant then).

As usual with politics, there's no middle ground. Either the race is dull with dull candidates, or finally one comes to the fore who can motivate people, and suddenly it's "creepy".

Gimme a break.

All this, and I haven't had coffee yet. :)

Rebecca Burch said...

I heard the funniest imaginary letter from McCain to Dubya on NPR the other day. Daniel Shore wrote it... hysterical!

billy pilgrim said...

you wouldn't be so cavalier if you were on an island with a bunch of vietcong cocksuckers.

Rebecca Burch said...

Hey, that book looks good too.

Thanks for the comment -- I actually posted a reply at my blogger, but then thought you might not see it there -- I moved and my new blog is at http://www.rebeccaburch.com . I posted the video to "If I Only Had A Brain" yesterday. It's hilarious!

yellowdog granny said...

nitwit:yup..sucking up the the religious right was just the topper of many sad moments in a used to be great man's quest for the utlimate dream..
I have seen Michele Obama a few different times and I really like what I saw..she's smart, strong and agressive..I like that in a woman..
yeah, I think they want clinton to win cause they have something on her and when she wins it..they will unveil it and bam,she's screwed..
Juan:hahah.big surprise..cnn bashing a democrat?...what happened to fair and impartial reporting..
rebecca:howdy and welcome..
i would listen to npr but that would mean switching my radio of the oldies and goodies station..ha..
I loved both those songs..especially the first one...yeah, it really was a great book..laughed all the way through it..I will add you to my bloglines...
billy:ok, if i was on an island with a bunch of viet cong cocksuckers i really would want john mccain with me..but not in the white house..kay?
rebecca:they should make a video of that song with film clips of bush stumbling through his speaches..haha

kath said...

Hi Jac

I too have always written to authors when I have enjoyed their work. Now that we have the magic of email. very few fail to write back It always makes me smile.
It does not surprise me in the least that you blog made your author laugh out loud ! Did you link to him? I have not looked.

Nothing much new here.. some books.. etc

I added the book you mentioned at my blog to my shopping list at amaon.. that is where i keep books that i want to read..... and will try to borrow :) I will call the library when I make a dent in my current stack.

It is cold as hell here in PA. but it was colder than hell last week so I won't compain much.

I agreee.. we cannot allow mcCain to be voted in.. cripe! that pic of him hugging the twig almost made me lose my lunch!!!!
ack~!

But the damned Democratic candidates are making me nuts.

ARGH!

Josh said...

The Repugs don't like McCain because he is so anti-torture. I think that speaks volumes about the party's ideology.

Damn girl, you read books faster than I go through porn.

buddha_girl said...

Sugared cereal and beef jerky? I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. That kid could likely kill someone.

buddha_girl said...

McCain? If he's elected, he's going after Iran. Yeah, like we need to be in another war with another fucking Middle Eastern country. Fucktard.

High-Maintenance & Hostile Heidi said...

I couldn't agree with you more about Pain-in-the-Butt McCain. I'm sure he'll join forces with Huckabee to lock in the Religious Right vote. There will be no stopping him then. He will be worse than George Bush and Dick Cheney ever were. The economy will never recover if we're constantly at war (and you know he's got his sights set on Iran). God help us all if he gets in.
