A Post Turtle

While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Texas rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama as our new President.

The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'post turtle'.' Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was.

The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.'

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain. 'You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb ass put him up there to begin with.'

I read this joke on a DC Craigslist post today and could not even laugh. It is funny, but we have no reason to laugh.

I see the return of the Clinton era, and if I am not mistaken, that is not the change that was promised, but a return to the old days. I guess there is a big fence post in DC

I will save that for another day, because what did make me laugh today is that Franken went to work this morning

Yeah, he will bring us change.

Meanwhile, Burris was handed his coat and sent out the door.

I knew it would happen, but I don't think it was the right thing to do to him. I know, Blogo has a lot of accusations swirling around him, but in this country we are presumed innocent, correct ? I still think Blogo will sing a tune the Dems will not want to hear when the time comes, but until then, I think Burris should get in there and get to work with the rest of the DC boys and girls.

The other thing that made me laugh today is this guy

Oh yeah, Panetta over the CIA. Maybe he can investigate what is being smoked or drank over in the Obama headquarters.

But then, maybe it was a mistake, maybe they heard Obama wrong.

Maybe the phone was broken

Maybe the phone was broken. LMAO! They don't want Burris because he isn't on the list of approved choices. They all screwed up, basically got caught and Blogo is doing his best to salvage his seat which he was probably cornered into losing at the behest of Obama by way of his cronies thru this pay scandal. They are ALL guilty and now they don't want someone there that won't play their game. A BLACK man, they cannot screw with publically and they know it and he ain't Jesse Jackson Jr. who's already in bed with Obama. Just my two cents.
