Well, another weekend and that damn hole is still not plugged.
But we’ve not been resting. As you’ll see, we’ve been working diligently on establishing our New Won World Order.
Sunday afternoon we hosted a reception at the Big White to honor the historic Ford’s Theatre. Apparently - and much to the Won’s surprise - there WAS history before his first historic Administration!
Later we went to the actual historic theatre for another concert and show. Did you know that Abraham Lincoln was actually assassinated at the Ford’s Theatre? Neither did Big Guy! He must have been working on the Harvard Law Review the day they covered that.
We struck a deal with ABC to broadcast the whole show as a July 4th special which will be, inexplicably, aired on July 2nd. First we changed the date of Washington’s and Lincoln’s Birthdays, then Memorial Day and now this? Is nothing sacred around here any more? Other than Kobe beef, I mean?
The show was yet another star-struck event: Ty Burrell, Kelly Clarkson, Renée Fleming, George Lopez, Lionel Richie, Robin Roberts, Dick Van Dyke and, oh yeah, The Soldiers' Chorus of the United States Army Field Band –because we’re celebrating the 4th of July. On June 6th - or July 2nd… even I’m confused now.
Kelly arrives at Ford’s. I see we’re doing the pudge again this season.
There will be prizes awarded at the performance: The Lincoln Medal will be awarded to South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu and to South African Constitutional Court Justice Albie Sachs. After Sir Pall’s award last week you might think that we’re running out of Americans deserving of receiving our awards, but really, that’s not it. It’s just that in order to implement our New Won World Order we must exhibit a willingness to buy their votes too.
Whew! Big Guy finally found something that he agrees with George W.Bush on: this governing stuff is hard!
