Everybody around here is focused like a laser beam: our annual well-earned vacation starts tomorrow! And, as always, there’s still a lot of last minute packing to do.
Then Big Guy will do a fly-by “Meet the Press” at 3:00 where he and TOTUS will deliver a few comments to deflect criticism, deny culpability, accuse “Washington” of “taking their eyes off the ball” and blame Fox News for ginning up phony scandals; all while feigning just the right amount of anger and indignation balanced with a dollop of that refreshing youthful insouciance that makes Big Guy so irresistible.
Yesterday was another busy one for Big Guy too. He and the Prime Minister of Greece ordered out for spanakopita,
and discussed the plight of the only country that finds itself in the same dangerous financial straits as Detroit. And for the same reason.
And we also announced this year’s list of recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom yesterday. The headliners for this years awards are Bill “Big Dawg” Clinton
and Oprah Winfrey. This is not the first prize Oprah’s collected from Big Guy for her not-insubstantial contributions to his ongoing success. You may recall she was also honored for “a substantial lifetime contribution to the world of arts” at the 2010 Kennedy Center honorees.
A refresher on what the Presidential Medal of Freedom is all about:
“The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the Nation’s highest civilian honor, presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”
President Obama said, “The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their own lives to enriching ours. This year's honorees have been blessed with extraordinary talent, but what sets them apart is their gift for sharing that talent with the world.”
It’s pretty clear how Oprah has enriched our lives;
With Big Dawg, you’re all just going to have to use your imagination.
The adventure continues…
