Catching up on Stuff

The first interview should be posted on the The Hawg's blog today. I'm sure his answers will be very interesting as he writes one of the best and most entertaining blogs.

Is everyone sick of the Obama Inauguration and Presidency yet? At least the ridiculous amount of coverage? Does CNN do anything any more except cover every movement by Mr. Obama?

The lead story on the PBS news? "Day 2 of the Obama Presidency." How long will this unbelievably ridiculous amount of coverage last? Approval polls are out based upon nothing. Give the guy a chance for heaven's sake. What is the point of keeping anyone under a microscope like this?

And while I'm busy complaining about things, how many times a day do I have to see the commercial about polar bears starving due to whatever the heck it is I am doing wrong? What would happen if all the polar bears died off? Would the world become over run wth seals or penguins or salmon or whatever they eat when they aren't chasing Sarah Palin? Is there a downside to this? Everyone likes seals and penguins, while polar bears are are the murderous coke whores of the animal kingdom.
I'd kill you for a Coke

Make sure you check out The Natural State Hawg's interview, and I'll be getting out the questions for everyone else ASAP. Have a happy day 3 of the Obama Presidency.

Out here in Maui, the entire first section of the local paper was about Obama; from his kindergarten class picture to people he inspired to the 6:30 AM party at a local restaurant to view the inauguration.

I missed the 1st and 2nd days doing fun stuff like blogging while I'm on vacation. Seriously, we were doing fun stuff like looking at whales. I guess I'll worry about the first ____ days later and I'm sure I'll see it over and over again on CNN if I dare to turn on the TV.

I am so sick of the Obama stuff, leave the guy alone and let him do his job and run the country.

Chelle Blögger said...

I agree, we need less Obama and less polar bears.

Or, we need to watch more TV Land and less CNN. :) said...

Laughing....I cannot stop laughing long enough to write a comment...

I didn't know that Polar bears were the "murderous coke whores" of the animal kingdom. learn something everyday...:)

Thanks for the laugh....

Have a great day~

I hear ya... even the Canadian stations are obsessed with Obama right now... in fact, I'm not even sure if our own prime minister got as much coverage as him.

Anonymous said...

Erm... as much coverage as 'he', that should be.

I'm not, but then I don't have cable and satellite and mostly ignore the news online. So it's not bothering me? What happened Tuesday anyway? ;)

A New Yorker said...

I'm tired of his smug face on the tv. Did you catch that facial expression when they videod him signing that first order. You could see his thoughts. HOLY SHIT I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE THE POWER TO DO THIS.

Obama Day 3 - where are the marching bands and closeups of overly optimistic old black ladies? When are the fireworks and rock concerts?

I think we should keep the party going as long as possible.

Sandee said...

I don't have television, so I'm spared much of this. I'm already sick of looking at him. Wait, I was sick of him long before now.

Have a terrific day Crotchety. Regards to Mrs. Crotchety. :)

Thanks for the opportunity, Crotchety!

And, yes, I'm sick of Obama. Hell, I was sick of seeing him this time last year, so not much has changed.

Better watch that anti-polar bear talk. They're tough critters and they may hunt you down.

@ Reforming: CNN has switched to an all Obama format. You'll be up to speed in no time. Enjoy your vacation.

@ Rutgers: Good idea

@ Offended: If it wasn't for the Spongebob marathons, my TV would have been off all day

@ Annie: I educate and inform. Infotainment at its best.

@ Shadow: He's a rock star. In a way I feel sorry for him. No one can live up to the expectations

@ Unfinished: Tuesday, I ate hot dogs and beans for dinner, and watched TV Land all day.

@ Lauren: It will stop after a few years, I hope.

@ Tiggy: 150 million dollars doesn't buy what it used to.

@ Sandee: Just a few more years. Have a good day.

@ The Hawg: It was my pleasure. And great answers, BTW. I'm not afraid of polar bears. I don't keep Coke in the house.

Jen said...

I am also tired of this presidency already. I hope it quiets down soon. I don't think it will. There is an awful lot of gloating to be done for the last 8 years. I do hope they leave the little girls alone.

Susan said...

Yes, I am absolutely sick of the Obamamania. I actual think it would be nice to move to another country while he is president. Although, I doubt there would a country for me to come back home to, or I probably wouldn't be able to recognize it, but it might be better than staying here and watching it fall down around me. It seems even Fox News has given in to the craze. I just left the TV off during the inauguration.

We're even getting bombarded here in Canada with the Obama coverage. The coverage that CNN has provided thus far is ridiculous and repetitious.

I can't wait for the "honeymoon" to be over - let's hope it doesn't last for 100 days!

Donnie said...

Hey Joe. I missed CNN so far today. What kind of cigarettes does he smoke, and has he ever put on the wrong color of socks before. Did they say? Huh, huh?

Kirsten said...

LOL! Coke whores indeed!
I'm not sure what I'm doing to kill them either, but I'm not about to stop. Screw 'em!

shyne said...

You have to love the hype, the expectations that Obama will save the country and the world. It's all about "feel good" and doesn't even come close to reality.

He's a man and, as a man, will make mistakes, just as we all do (except for Crotchety, of course......;-))

Off to have a glass of wine and toast our future....maybe I'll have two glasses. I'm not all that hopeful.


Da Old Man said...

@ Jen: I'm sure the mania will settle down, soon. It's kind of stupid.

@ Susan: I watched Food Network, and some other cable non news channels.

@ Robin: CNN lost all credibility a long time ago. They have gotten worse, if that was possible.

@ Don: I get all my Obama coverage from ESPN. They keep it to a minimum.

@ Kirsten: Exactly, screw them bears.

@ Shyne: You might want to switch up to something stronger.

WOW. Where were all these people when I was hit with a SHIT STORM of HUGE proportions because I printed a photograph of a black cat with dredlocks on MY post?? huh? HUH????? I nearly got my ass kicked and shoved to the back of my own damn bus!!!

Susan said...

The Food Network is my favorite!

The Self-Deprechaun said...

Those polar bears are total skanks. They will do anything and anyone for coke. Really, they are making the polar ice caps into a real red light district.

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

I'm too busy playing in the snow, eating BBQ, drinking whiskey, flying kites & riding trains in Memphis to worry 'bout silly things like a Presidential Inauguration! I have my priorities ya know! Chooo-chooooo!
