The week that was

???He had the look of one who had drunk the cup of life and found a dead beetle at the bottom.???

Campaigning for a Democratic who probably didn’t want him to, President Obama accused a Republican challenger of making repealing “a law that makes sure women are treated fairly on the job” the platform of his agenda. Obama added, “It just don???t make no sense,” validating the birthers‘ accusation that English is not our president’s first language.

The midterm elections will take place next week, meaning finally an end to months and months of speculation, accusations, and campaigning, and the beginning of months and months of speculation, accusations, and recountng.

The Pentagon is warning the Navy SEAL who killed Obama bin Laden not to go onto Fox News to tell his story because the government, also known as the mainstream news networks, already reported his story. The SEAL, like Sharyl Attkison, will be under investigation for doing his job.

A nurse in Maine who just returned from West Africa, where she was treating Ebola patients, is defying public outcry that she isolate herself. She went on a bike ride yesterday. It’s kind of like when the Feds tell illegal immigrants to come back in 30 days to be deported.

Happy Halloween! If you want to spook someone, remind them that Obama is president!
