Putting the Ham Back in Alhambra

Now I see why Lady M took Sasha to Spain: it was for a history lesson. Yesterday we enjoyed some of the historic grandeur of Spain, touring the Alhambra, the Moorish palace built for the last Muslim Emirs to rule Spain.

The Moors invaded Spain in the 8th century, forcing Christians to convert to Islam. The Moors weren’t thrown out until the later 15th century,with the success of the Spanish Reconquista. But in the interim they built some really impressive mosques. So New York’s got that to look forward to.

Meanwhile, Big Guy is also having a great week. Besides a really fun B-Day without the family, he celebrated the appointment of his second Obama Operative to the Supreme Court.  We’ve now got a fireplug on both ends of the bench.

This historic appointment brings us one step closer to deeming the U.S. Constitution completely irrelevant. That will clear the way to have the Supremes supersede the whole Constitution with Obamanology: which is based on a combination of international and sharia law, and whatever else Big Guy’s friends want. Oh, and communism, but that was already a given. I think technically we need one more Supreme Court appointment to do this, but the pickings look pretty good right now.

Anyway, Big Guy has asked Gibbsy to plan a little celebratory lawn party for when we get back from Spain. Here’s my best artist’s rendition, until I can reflect the real deal back at you:
