New Hampshire, President Bush and Homayoon Ziqar Are All In The Dark


There is a mass black out in New Hampshire because of severe ice storms. New England church's serve as shelters for those without power and food. While power lines snapped by New England's devastating ice storm leave many New Englanders in the dark, some say our President has been in the dark of years. Winter Weather

President Bush was in the middle of telling the Iraqi journalists just how well the war on terror was going when his apparent ignorance was illustrated by an Iraqi reporter who threw both of his shoes at our President. As the Iraqi journalist flung his shoes at President Bush, he called our leader a "dog." (Throwing shoes is a sign of disapproval in Iraq and in most marital homes!)

Finally, India has considered creating its own darkness in retaliation for the Thanksgiving terrorism courtesy of Pakistan radicals. The response was for India's air force to go on alert. What does that mean in such a tense region? Business as usual according to Pakistan. While the two nuclear powers may have been close to conflict in the days after the Mumbai attacks, Pakistan is probably right, it is business as usual. Apparently, U.S. officials take credit for encouraging India to exercise restraint. One would suspect that India was smart enough to figure that one out by itself. (After all, think of all the impact on the Indian economy of losing all those outsourced telephone support jobs for business in the U.S. like Dell and AOL...) Air Commodore Homayoon Ziqar, a spokesman for the Pakistan Air Force, had no comment other than saying, "Everything is normal." (Sounds like Pakistan is also lobbying for outsourced customer service jobs.)

Does this illustrate that darkness = ignorance?

Looking forward to the kinder gentler world promised by Obama.

President Bush said on TV he thought it was funny the guy threw his shoes at him, wonder how he would of felt if one of those shoes would have landed him upside the head. Stupid thing to say.

Bush reminds me of three golfers:

Moses, Jesus and the old man. Moses teed off and the ball landed in the water. He parted the water, and hit the ball in for a birdie.

Jesus teed off and the ball landed in the water. He then walked on the water, and hit the ball in for a birdie.

Then the old man teed off, but before the ball could hit the water, a fish jumped out and caught the ball in its mouth. Then an eagle swooped down and caught the fish. Lightening then struck near the eagle, frightening it, and it dropped the fish. When the fish hit the ground, it dropped the ball in for a perfect hole in one.

Jesus turned to the old man, and said, "Dad, if you don't quit playing like that, we're not going to bring you anymore."

Clueless

Well, Ms. C., the Iraqui people support the reporter who threw his shoes. In fact today, thousands rallied in his support!

Its the arrogance of President Bush that got him in trouble. It remindes me of a story.

A blonde girl marries a Colorado rancher. One morning, the
rancher says to his blond wife that the insemination man is coming over to impregnate one of their cows, so I drove a nail
into the 2 by 4 just above where the cow's stall is in the barn. Please show him where the cow is when he gets here.

After a while, the artificial insemination man arrives and the blond wife takes him down to the barn. They walk along the row of cows and when she sees the nail, she tells him, this is the cow to be impregnated. The arrogant man asks, 'Tell me lady, 'cause I'm dying to know; how would YOU know that this is the right cow to be bred?'

By the nail that's over its stall,
she confidently explains.

'And what, pray tell, is the nail for?'

The blonde turns to walk away and says sweetly over her shoulder, 'I guess it's to hang your pants on.'

Oh come on Shell, if the shoe fits, Bush should wear it!

Is it me or was the Secret Service reaction time was a little slow? How did he have time to take off both shoes before someone tackled him???

I don't advocate violence, but I applaud that Iraqi journalist!!! I wish he had hit him.

"A new poll says that if the election were held today, both John Kerry and John Edwards would beat President Bush by double digit margins. The White House is so worried about this, they're now thinking of moving up the capture of Osama Bin Laden to next month." —Jay Leno

"In response to the escalating violence in Iraq, President Bush is delaying the return home of 25,000 troops and will actually add reinforcements to the south. Then in a symbolic gesture he pulled down the mission accomplished banner, put on a flight suit, walked backwards to a jet fighter and flew it in reverse off an aircraft carrier." —Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update"

Comedian Wil Sylvince said, he was amazed that Nike wanted to sponsor the Iraqi Journalist who threw his shoes at Bush.

Of course he was just joking, but thought it would be a novel idea.

Adidas will outbid Nike on this one...
