injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

.
With the Ohio tornadoes, the Arkansas floods, more NATO troops killed in Afghanistan and, of course, the continued devastation from the BP oil spill, it was a struggle to find something to smile about this week.  It's times like this when I'm grateful for Sarah Palin...

In an attempt to put to rest rumors that she’s had a boob job Sarah, pictured here at the Belmont Stakes to cheer on her horse "First  Dude," recently told Faux News bff Greta Van Susteren that the sad thing about all this is people are now staring at her chest when “I really want them to be listening to what I’m saying.”   Uh, I’d go with your strengths, Sarah. 

Personally, I could care less if Palin is no longer biodegradable.  I just want to know if anyone else finds the words “Sarah Palin” and “boob job” in the same sentence as redundant as I do.

Your taxpayer dollars at work – if you’re British, that is.  

Britain teenage girls are being taught how to walk in high heels in a government-funded college course.  The six-week “Sexy Heels In The City” course at London's South Thames College also gives lessons on how to carry designer handbags. The course claims to prepare young women "for the business world and their social lives."

"The earlier younger ladies learn how to walk in heels, the better it's going to be in the long run - with business and social lives," said the woman who runs the course.

Taxpayers' groups have slammed it as pointless and a waste of time, but I don’t know. 

With job opportunities for college grads scarce everywhere these days everyone needs a backup plan, and what better way to prepare your daughter for a career as a street walker should the need arise?

Where’s Dick?

Dick Cheney has been appearing on any show that would have him to mouth off on the President’s every move since Obama took office, but since the BP Oil spill – not a word.   Isn’t that interesting?

Cheney was chairman and CEO of oil-services company Halliburton between 1995 and 2000 and continued to receive stock options and deferred income from the company until 2003.   As vice-president, he was also the architect of our energy policy from 2000 to 2008. 

In 2005 President Bush signed the “Energy Policy Act" that included what has become known as "the Halliburton Loophole" which removed authority from the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate a potentially dangerous gas-drilling process known as “cementing,” a process invented by Halliburton and one they just happened to be working on right before the Deepwater Horizon rig blew all to hell. 


Bush/Cheney – The herpes of American history.

California politics

What kind of a power hungry ego maniac spends $90 million dollars to get a job that pays only $212,179?   If you guessed former Ebay CEO Meg Whitman you’d be right, but that’s just chump change for this multi-billionaire who seeks to be California’s next governor and plans to spend an additional $60 million in the general election.

Lest you think that her privileged position puts her out of touch with the concerns of us mere mortals,  in a soon-to-be-seen TV ad, Meg says:  If we could only do one thing, putting people back to work would be the most important thing. The human cost of two million Californians out of work is devastating.

Those Ebay workers included in the massive layoffs at the company while Meg was in charge and paying herself a whopping $120 million would probably agree.

And finally, talk about the pot calling the kettle black…

Carly Fiorina, another Republican multi-millionaire who bought herself the nomination and hopes to unseat California Senator Barbara Boxer, got her campaign off to an auspicious start with what I can only assume is her audition tape for the sequel to “Mean Girls.”  Caught on an open mike, Ms. Fiorina shared this insight…



Thank you Carly for showing us that when it comes to politicians making complete asses of themselves, there is no gender gap.
