Wanted: Spring Break Chaperones. Adults preferred.

Not a good weekend for the team.

We never really lined up a good replacement for that Meet the Press assignment. You know, the gig that Hilary Rosen was supposed to handle? To keep the WOW drums pounding? Hil was supposed to be a softer version of previous Dem spokesmouth Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Even her entirely new skin didn’t fool anyone.

Once she opened her mouth, it was pretty obvious it was still the same old washerwoman. Somehow a female version of James Carville doesn’t play as well as the original ragin’ Cajun.

Then we had this hot mess to deal with, hot on the heels of the $850k GSA YouTube videothon (looks like the “It’s Bush’s fault” meme didn’t work here): a dozen Secret Service agents in Columbia busted with $47 hookers. Hoe boy.


No wait, that’s not a Colombian hooker,

it’s just a Colombian Obot.

Anyway, then we get…Hilz!?! Dancing and slamming down a brewski?


WTF? What is this? Is the entire administration on Spring Break in Cancun or something? Is it something in the water?

How are we going to Win the Future with this kind of shenanigans going on? Exactly what is going on here – have we switched to an “America Built to be Last?” These people all used to be serious people, doing serious jobs. Now it’s all, like, Girls Gone Wild or something. What next, tattoos?


I don’t know. I just don’t think this looks good. Big Guy seems to be losing his grip on the troops.

And then the next thing you know, I’m reading this headline:  “Obama urged at summit to focus on Latin America.” 

obama pink americaFocus on Latin America? That works for me, does it work for you?

At the rate we’re going, over half of North America might vote to have Big Guy focus on Latin America, and let someone else try working on “America: An Economy Built to Last”

2012-mitt-believe-in-america What the heck, we’ve tried someone who didn’t, so why not?

And besides, there may be a lifetime opening as el presidente of a nice little Latin America country soon.

And now that he has some real leadership experience, Big Guy could be a shoo-in. Especially since Venezuela operates on a “Chicago rules” voting system.

And it sure sounds like BO really likes South America:

“I want to thank President Santos and the people of Colombia for the extraordinary hospitality in the beautiful city of Cartagena,” said Obama. “We're having a wonderful time. And usually when I take these summit trips, part of my job is to scout out where I may want to bring Michelle back later for vacation.  So we'll make sure to come back sometime in the near future.”

So take that, little Mr. Smarty Pants Channel 4 local reporter Larry Conners!

We’ll vacation where ever and when ever we feel like it. And if you don’t like it, well maybe you just better remember who’s in charge around here, buster.
