You can’t spell “Boob” without “B.O.” The Boob was abroad for close to two weeks to escape the election results. Now the Boob is back, but not stone cold sober as a matter of fact. Indeed a drunk hobo would have done better than the American BoBo.
“WASHINGTON – President Obama is coming home from his overseas trip pretty much empty-handed.
After watching his party take a beating in the midterm elections, Obama wasn’t able to secure even a symbolic victory on a trip that was expected to give him plenty of opportunities to claim a win.
“This certainly was the worst 10 days of his political life,” said Baruch College political scientist Doug Muzzio. “Given that he’s not going to be able to get any domestic achievements with the Republicans in control of the House … if he doesn’t do it in foreign policy that’s a big problem for him.
“He came back with bupkis [Yiddish for 'nothing'].”
Back in April 2009 we wrote “World Leaders And North Korea To Barack Obama: “Sucker“‘ In those days it was evident that Obama was a boob but most of Big Media praised him to high celestial choir heaven. We knew better. This is what we wrote that April:
“The BOob is a pushover – that is the message from Barack Obama’s European vacation. The news from Asia is not much better as North Korea sizes up Obama and sees a dwarf.
World leaders sized up Obama and decided he is a celebrity wannabee. So world leaders gave Obama the soul craving celebrity he wants for himself and then smartly picked the pockets of Uncle Sam while Obama grinned.”
So who was right? Big Pink or Big Media? Last week world leaders treated the boob like the boob he is with a minimum of celebrity glad-handing. Soon even those displays of good will shall disappear and the Boob will be both literally and figuratively slapped in the face. It appears that Big Media has caught up to our analysis from way back.
He's such a moron. My kids better never, ever be so vain. How embarrassing for his mother's memory.
Okay, so what I want to talk about tonight is . . . Christmas.
Yes, next week is Thanksgiving. But the kids and I fly home for the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) and it's just too much of a hassle for gifts on planes. So I have my gifts shipped to my folks and then they're there and I don't have to worry. But that requires me ordering in advance.
And sometimes it's not easy.
For instance, an out of print DVD my sister wants? I've spent two hours on Ebay tonight.
And I lost.
The stop watch.
I haven't bid on Ebay in forever. I had to get them to e-mail me my password because I couldn't remember it.
Now they've got a stop watch. It counts down. I found this out tonight.
And I'm thinking, "Everyone's waiting until the last minute!"
See, in the old days of dial up, I'd be waiting and waiting and do my bid at the very last second and get the item.
Not this time. I can't believe it.
No one else bid on the item. At 3 seconds left, I hit my bid and was . . . taken to another screen . . . asking me to confirm my bid. Which I did. But by that time the auction was over.
I was and am pissed.
There's another item in 14 hours and then one four hours after and then one eight hours. So don't expect much tomorrow night if I don't win the item in the morning because then bidding is going to be my main focus.
Oh. I don't shop at Wal-Mart but if you do, they've got free shipping going on right now. That's no tax, free shipping, you're just paying cost.
