Oldie But A Goodie

I was digging around on the White House website, and found an old press release. The contents were a converation between Bush and some reporters while he was trying to order some ribs.


Remarks by the President to the Press Pool
Nothin’ Fancy Cafe
Roswell, New Mexico



11:25 A.M. MST

THE PRESIDENT: I need some ribs.

Q Mr. President, how are you?

THE PRESIDENT: I’m hungry and I’m going to order some ribs.

Q What would you like?

THE PRESIDENT: Whatever you think I’d like.

Q Sir, on homeland security, critics would say you simply haven’t spent enough to keep the country secure.

THE PRESIDENT: My job is to secure the homeland and that’s exactly what we’re going to do. But I’m here to take somebody’s order. That would be you, Stretch — what would you like? Put some of your high-priced money right here to try to help the local economy. You get paid a lot of money, you ought to be buying some food here. It’s part of how the economy grows. You’ve got plenty of money in your pocket, and when you spend it, it drives the economy forward. So what would you like to eat?

Q Right behind you, whatever you order.

THE PRESIDENT: I’m ordering ribs. David, do you need a rib?

Q But Mr. President —

THE PRESIDENT: Stretch, thank you, this is not a press conference. This is my chance to help this lady put some money in her pocket. Let me explain how the economy works. When you spend money to buy food it helps this lady’s business. It makes it more likely somebody is going to find work. So instead of asking questions, answer mine: are you going to buy some food?

Q Yes.

THE PRESIDENT: Okay, good. What would you like?

Q Ribs.

THE PRESIDENT: Ribs? Good. Let’s order up some ribs.

Q What do you think of the democratic field, sir?

THE PRESIDENT: See, his job is to ask questions, he thinks my job is to answer every question he asks. I’m here to help this restaurant by buying some food. Terry, would you like something?

Q An answer.

Q Can we buy some questions?

THE PRESIDENT: Obviously these people — they make a lot of money and they’re not going to spend much. I’m not saying they’re overpaid, they’re just not spending any money.

Q Do you think it’s all going to come down to national security, sir, this election?

THE PRESIDENT: One of the things David does, he asks a lot of questions, and they’re good, generally.

END 11:29 A.M. MST


Mmmmm, ribs.

I’m A Sexy Beast

How to answer to the question “What do guys do to make themselves feel confident and sexy?”…


Personally, I just take a look at a this photo of Ted Kennedy:

UPDATE: I’m also #1 for “Bill Maher is an idiot”

Is That Allowed?

I got my first hit from Saudi Arabia tonight, at least the first one I can recall. The person was searching for “watch women naked”. Don’t know how he (are women allowed to use computers there?) found my site, I didn’t see my site anywhere in the Google search (http://www.google.com.sa/search?q=watch+women+naked&hl=ar&lr=&start=290&sa=N). However, it was interesting to see Google oriented for those who read right to left, though.


Ah, porn. It’s what brings cultures (even those that ban it) together.

To Everything There Is A Season

But for this lady, the seasons are long gone for wearing those kind of shorts.

Food Police At It Again

So, you like salt on your food? If a certain “advocacy group” has their way, you’ll be getting less of it:


…the CSPI renewed a lawsuit first filed in 1983 to ask federal courts to force the Food and Drug Administration to declare sodium a food additive instead of categorizing it as “generally recognized as safe.” This would give the agency the authority to set limits for salt in foods.

“There is no way the FDA can look at the science and say with a straight face that salt is ‘generally recognized as safe,”‘ CSPI executive director Michael Jacobson said in a statement.


I don’t know why people think that it’s the government’s job to save them from themselves. Take some personal responsibility. If you have high blood pressure, take it easy on the salt.  If you don’t, it’s your own fault, and you’ll get what’s coming to you.


I, for one, don’t want the government telling me how much salt I can intake. And I certainly don’t need the CSPI acting on my behalf, thank you very much. If I want to eat SALTines, I will eat them. And I will eat them in a boat, and I will eat them with a goat. And I will eat them on a train, and I will eat them in the rain…


UPDATE: After careful consideration, I have decided to refrain from eating saltines in the rain. And in the plain. Especially in Spain.


UPDATE II: Drudge picked up the story. Same link as above.

A Large List Of Potential Terrorists

The Baron is hot on the trail, tracking down potential terrorists who have signed this petition to  free Ahmed Abu-Ali. It’s a long list, and he needs help doing a little discovery on the list of those who have signed.

Are There Two John McCains?

Today, John McCain called for permanent US military bases in Afghanistan:


Sen. John McCain, part of a five-strong U.S. Senate delegation which held talks with President Hamid Karzai, said he was committed to a “strategic partnership that we believe must endure for many, many years.

“Not only for the good of the Afghan people, but also for the good of the American people because of the long-term security interests that we have in the region,” McCain told reporters at the presidential palace in the Afghan capital.


Yes, that’s the same John McCain who had this to say on Sunday:


“I am sure that Senator Clinton would make a good president,” Mr. McCain said. “I happen to be a Republican and would support, obviously, a Republican nominee, but I have no doubt that Senator Clinton would make a good president.”

If I ever run into Senator McCain, I’ll remind him of “Hillarycare”. Sometimes I just don’t know what that man is thinking.

Google Weirdness Today

I’m seeing a lot of Google hits to this post today. Turns out I’m numero uno on Google if you search for “teen with big boobs” (that would be with the quotes, without them, I’m like fourth).


I’ve also been getting a lot of hits for “bush doritos” and I’m guessing people are looking for this. Or some weird food porn video I am as of yet unaware of.

I’m Not Much On Celebrity Gossip, But…

Everyone’s probably heard by now about Paris Hilton’s sidekick getting hacked, and all her numbers floating around on the Internet. They’ve probably all been changed by now, but one interesting thing pops up in her notes:


“call Gary Shandling get tape of everything.”


Now there’s something I hope never makes it out on the Internet.
