These may make me unpopular but….
To President Obama
I am fascinated by the contrast between the man of peace you ran your campaign on and the man who has come into office. When I first saw you at the 2004 Democratic Convention, I had great hopes that you would bring the divisions to an end. However, that is not the case. Your instant sweeping away of abortion restrictions (including using federal money to support clinics in other countries to give abortions) seems to be more of the same. Interesting that we aren’t pulled out of Iraq yet, but you’re risking some serious ugliness with Pakistan. Don’t get me wrong. I expected this. Regardless of the words that you inspired the rest of America with, I searched for content and found another wolf in sheep’s clothing. As one who was bitterly deceived by Bill Clinton and found out my trust was mislaid, I was unwilling to be fooled again. I hoped, but did not expect, Greatness. Unlike some, I wish you the best because you will definitely need it to survive in the glittering, foul world of Washington politics. But somehow, I think you will thrive there. And that may make me unpopular. It isn’t because you don’t agree with me politically that I view your presidency with some cynicism. It’s because I resent the fine words and fabulous sentiments that makes America great used to further petty, political infighting. The media may give you a pass, Sir, but I cannot.
To Liz Sidoti
Your story on the first week of Obama’s presidency summarily dismissed quite a few Americans in a sweeping generalization….again. What fascinates me is the contrast YOU’VE made is WRONG. Take a look at THIS CONVERSATION. Interesting how history has been rewritten. Check your facts, Liz. Bush was struggling NOT to be divisive. Obama has been nothing but. Please stop trying to change history to fit your new political wind.

Okay, so when Speed Racer lived here, you complained about him because he slept all day and didn’t have a job. You got so irritated with him that when Speed Racer left, he was relieved to go. Now, we’ve got your brother here. He sleeps all day and doesn’t have a job. AND he disappears for days on end (so his daughter calls here looking for him) and then shows up days later saying he was “out of cell phone range” and sleeps for three days solid. Explain to me why THAT’S okay?
OMG! You’re like crack for my soul! It’s so bad. I can sit for hours and watch all the episodes of my shows I’ve missed. But then, no writing will be done! Wahhhh. I can’t control myself.

What is it about barking your fool heads off fifty million times last night? I have two words for you. Fur Slippers.
