Historic! Unprecedented! Robust!

First, the HISTORIC:

We made history! Twice this month! As originally brought to your attention by Bijou, we were close to breaking through the 400 comment on one post record as of yesterday. Due to the unprecedented effort on the part of so many of you, (special shoutout to Injainjuneer and Jules, whose encouragement and comments threw us over the top) we did it!

Butt not only that –  last week we blew through the million hit barrier on my little blog! That’s right! We joined the MILLIONAIRE’s club! No, no kroners, butt maybe we’ll get a medal or something.

As Madame de Farge pointed out, we are now, officially, too big to fail!


Now plug in your headphones, crank up the volume, and raise the roof, because - MOLs, MODs, MYLs, MYDs and FOMs,


Butt enough about me. On to the UNPRECEDENTED Won:

“President Obama defended his Nobel Peace Prize on Tuesday, saying that Americans “don’t see any contradiction” in him ordering an attack on Libya to make sure “people aren’t butchered because of a dictator who wants to cling to power.”

So, now I’m wondering, why didn’t George W. Bush get a Nobel Peace Prize? I can only conclude it was due to racism.

BO continues:

“So I am accustomed to this contradiction of being both a commander-in-chief but also someone who aspires to peace.”

Unlike those R-words, who aspire to war. For oil. Or Halliburton. Or something.

Oh wait, here’s the nuance We’ve Been Waiting For:

we’re not invading a country, we’re not acting alone – we’re acting under a mandate issued by the United Nations Security Council in an unprecedented fashion and with unprecedented speed.”


Got that? It’s not a “war” it’s a “mandate.” And we weren’t indecisive, disengaged or waffling; we were just waiting for the One World Order mandate. And once we received it from the OWO Security Council, we acted with unprecedented speed. Robustly.

“Unprecedented speed.” I thought that was a bad thing, “speed,”  I mean. We sure don’t want to look like a cowboy going all kinetic or something, do we?

And now to wrap up with the ROBUST: no, unfortunately, not the economy. Rather, we’re going to now have a robust debate over the war kinetic military action in Libya. Speaker Boehner has sent Big Guy a harsh letter, saying, among other things:

"It is my hope that you will provide the American people and Congress a clear and robust assessment of the scope, objective, and purpose of our mission in Libya and how it will be achieved,"

Rather like shutting the gate after the camel got out, if you ask me, but we do like kinetic action in Washington. Any way, Big Guy’s secretary is coming back to D.C. to explain this camel to Congress.

Finally, just because I owe my “to big to fail” status to all of you, I wanted to give you an optic of our return to the USA from our Latin American wine tour. I like to call this one “the great tablecloth heist.” With matching napkins.


…and note, we’re wearing our new tan spankles too.


Thanks again every one, for making me a millionaire!

The Whole World Celebrates With Us!!!
