Random Musings

Staffers for Minnesota Congresswoman, and certifiable Crazy-Eyed Wacknut, Michele Bachmann, are confirming a Swiss television news report that Bachmann is now a citizen of Switzerland. 
Bachmann's congressional spokes-tool, Becky Rogness, said Bachmann now enjoys dual citizenship with the US and Switzerland: "Congresswoman Bachmann's husband is of Swiss descent so she has been eligible for dual-citizenship since they got married in 1978. However, recently some of their children wanted to exercise their eligibility for dual-citizenship so they went through the process as a family."
I never knew Marcus was a Swiss Miss.
In addition to this story, Bachmann gave Mittsy Romney her endorsement, by saying something like, "Well, he's all we've got, so........Marcus! Take off my dress!"

To say I was dumbfounded by the passage of Amendment One in North Carolina would be a massive understatement. I can't fathom anyone voting to discriminate against another person. But then i took a trip over to Viktor's spot, Maybe It's Just Me--and you ought to stop in on that blog regularly--and saw this little graphic which explains everything:

And then, saw found this:

And Rick "Frothy Mix" Santorum has finally come out--no pun intended--and also endorsed Mittsy for president.
And he did so by having a huge press conference and.....what? Oh, he released an email in the middle of the night where he doesn't so much as say Mittsy's the best man for the job, but reiterates how different he and Mittsy are, and how, "Well, he's all we've got, so.....Hey you! Lady! Stop with the birth control already."

Lots of news about the unpaid prostitute in Columbia who is at the center of the Secret Service scandal.
She wants to stretch her fifteen minutes of fame to the pages of Hustler and wants to sell her story.
Here's her story: she's a prostitute who got a call to go to a hotel and let some guy bang her. She did. He didn't pay. She raised a fuss. It came out that he's Secret Service. Now she says she could have taken all sorts of confidential secret information from him.
Um, Hooker? May I call you Hooker? You couldn't even find his wallet to take your $47.00. How you gonna crack the lock on the Secret Service briefcase and take all the files marked "Top Secret."
You're a hooker. It might be legal in Colombia, but, c'mon, you aren't exactly a paragon of virtue.
Say Buenos Noches already.

Tweet Of The Day:

I love The Borgias because I loves me some Cesare Borgia, played by François Arnaud.
But now, Cesare's murderous henchman--which is kind of an oxymoron--Micheletto, has returned to his village and we learn that he has a bit of a gay past.
With secret lover, Augustino, played by the hot, oh, so hot, Darwin Shaw.
I just hope this wasn't a one-note episode, and that Augustino will be back.

And, speaking of new crushes from TV Land:
GCB. I started watching because it stars Kristin Chenoweth and Annie Potts.
Those two are reason enough.
And I also loveslovesloves the gay husband, played by Mark Deklin, but the newest hunk, who's been there almost all along but suddenly appeared really dreamy this last week, is Tyler Jacob Moore, who plays Pastor John Tudor.
I don't usually go for the blonds, but his smile is.....swoon.

 And speaking of TV. I love the BBC/America. 
I loved Whitechapel.
I find most British television programs to be more interesting, and less predictable, than American shows.
Case in point: The new version of Sherlock Holmes--played by the interestingly named, Benedict Cumberbatch--that is being shown on Masterpiece Theater on Sunday nights. It’s an updating of Holmes to 2011, and the stories are quick, interestingly told, interestingly filmed.
I wish our US networks would take note and try to be a little more inventive.

It's sad about North Carolina more so about their education

Yes, for all the hype from states in the Southeast about how cosmopolitan they are and no matter how often you hear them talk about "The New South"... we know better don't we.

I hear Mittsy has just been outed as leader of the high school bully pack... Figures!
