“I’m gonna miss ya, take a memo:”

You’ve probably heard that Big Guy needs a new secretary. So why did Steve Kroft invite him to come on the 60 Minutes show with his old secretary – and not even ask him if he’s posted the opening yet?

60 Minutes? 60 Minutes the premier “investigative journalism” program? What are they investigating?

When MOTUS Met Hillary

I should have known better. I should have just kept my yap shut. Butt yesterday when Sara B mentioned how a family member of one of the Benghazigate victims described his meeting with Hillary Clinton as “cold” adding that she wouldn’t even look any of them in the eye, I had to go shoot my mouth off about my experience:  “Speaking of cold, some day I'll tell you my true story of the first time I met old Hills. Cold doesn't begin to describe the ice that broad is carved out of.”

I immediately got called out for teasing the story. So now I will relate the details of the incident, which is probably far less exciting than you may have HOPEed or been led to believe.

On my behalf, I would like to point out that I have been trans-imaging all of the inaugural events on Washington D.C. time (EST), screening films here at the Sundance Festival on Park City time (MST) all while tending to a houseful of guests. Hillary isn’t the only one around here with a heavy workload and inadequate funding for staff.

So if I misled you into believing that my little “When MOTUS Met Hillary” tale would be more entertaining than it turns out to be, I accept full responsibility; butt I blame you for having such unreasonably high expectations in the first place based on the low amount of information I presented.  I stand firmly with Lonestar Stacy and declare: “I take responsibility, but it's not my fault because I was not doing my job."

Let’s get right to it shall we?

If it weren’t for low integrity...

“There ain't nothin' more powerful than the odor of mendacity...You can smell it. It smells like death.”                                       Big Daddy, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

159932729“What difference does it make!!”

Let’s try to parse this a bit more.


"It's 3 a.m. and your children are safe and asleep, but there's a phone in the White House and it's ringing. Something is happening in the world. Your vote will decide who answers that call. Whether it's someone who already knows the world's leaders, knows the military. Someone tested and ready to lead in a dangerous world. It's 3 a.m. and your children are safe and asleep. Who do you want answering the phone?"


We don’t care; just make sure somebody answers the damn phone. Lives depend on it.

Let’s parse this a bit:


Hillary has always been a good student. This was evidenced again yesterday as she maneuvered the Benghazi obstacle course with legendary Clintonian skill; managing to take 100% responsibility with 0% blame.

The New World Order: More Containment, Less Charmeuse

What a busy week – so busy I forgot to go to one of the Sundance movies I scored tickets for! I’m not complaining though. Everyone else around here has been doing their share of sacrificin’ too:


Even Little Bo was pressed into action. He had to  stand on line with the Wons for 36 minutes yesterday before finally being relieved of duty!

Four MO Years

Anyway you look at it, it was historic.

tea partyHey! Who invited the Tea Party?

And if you don’t believe me, just ask Chrissy Matthews who thought it so historic he called it Big Guy’s “Gettysburg” Address.

Others who shall remain known only to me said it sounded more  Petty-burg or Vendetti-burg than Gettysburg. I don’t see how phrases like “My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it -- so long as we seize it together,” sound very Lincoln-esque, butt what do I know?

Butt hey! Yesterday was so much fun, what do you say we do it all over again?


Who can turn the world on with her smile?

Our First, Second (okay, fourth) Historic, Ceremonial Inauguration

“Sometimes, I find myself thinking, ‘My God, what have we done?’”                  H/T Daily Caller

king-obama-daily-beast-300x300 Martin Luther KING Day: coronation at noon

The ceremonial inauguration is finally here; and how ironic that it is to take place on Martin Luther King Day, a holiday that commemorates a man who dreamed of the day his children would be judged on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin.

Yes, he is the WON we’ve been waiting for:

A COR-o-nation in the PORN-o-nation

Tough choice today: should I cover the pre-inaugural Festival in D.C.  or the Sundance Festival in P.C.? In a sense they’re both about the same thing.

As you may have heard, Newsweek (now exclusively on line!) has deemed the WON’s term number two “The Second Coming.” And (coincidentally) today’s emerging theme from Sundance that I was going to discuss is…pornography!

Seriously. With the official premiere screenings this weekend of Don Jon’s Addiction (hint: it’s porn), Lovelace (hint: yes, that Lovelace) and Kink (hint: it’s a San Fran porn studio) Sundance has officially embraced the dark side of the dark side.

Don’t you just love it when life imitates art?

newsweek second coming

Or is it the other way around? I always get that confused.
