No Ma'am!

Ok, these videos are pretty self-explanatory. Sarah Palin is in no WAY, SHAPE or FORM qualified to be the Vice President! Shoot, I'M more qualified to be the V.P.! Her interviews are an embarrassment - to herself and to her party. On a lighter note, doesn't she sound like the mom from the 90's cartoon "Bobby's World"*? Say she doesn't!

Somebody Hurry Up and Sign These Guys...

These two are at it again!
Craig Lewis and Junior Kyle have donned curly red wigs to give their rousing rendition of Annie Warbuck's classic ditty "Tomorrow." I don't know about you, but this was one of my FAVORITE movies as a kid.

Seriously though, if I could sing like this, I would NEVER talk. I'd just sing everything - my grocery list, my order at the Chick-fil-a drive through window, the church announcements, EVERYTHING.

Warning, this gets LOUD, so you may want to turn your speakers down.

A Meme of the Unspectacular


1. I'm addicted to reality TV: Jon & Kate Plus 8, Clean House, Whose Wedding is it Anyway, Shear Genius, Project Runway, Split Ends. That’s pretty much all I watch.

2. I have natural hair, and I’m glad so many sistas are starting to embrace theirs. I visit the natural hair photo sharing group on Fotki.com pretty regularly. Oh, and I LOVE Dominican hair products – not the stylists though, they always fry my scalp.

3. I’m getting too old to listen to the radio. I barely know any of the songs that are popular now. Even when I’m driving I listen to radio shows – Steve Harvey in the Morning, Wendy Williams in the afternoon at work, and Mo’Nique during my afternoon drive. I never thought I’d see the day when I’d prefer listening to the news over “hip hop.”

4. I’m becoming more weight-conscious. I’ve always had to work to keep it down (sometimes successfully, sometimes unsuccessfully). I took the train to work yesterday and this morning, and it lets me off about a mile from my office. This means I have to get up about an hour earlier than I do if I drive. I’m proud of myself!

5. I think I’ve fallen in love with Snyder of Hanover’s Hot Buffalo Wing Pretzel pieces.

6. I’ll spend almost all day in the hair salon, but I HATE to wait at nail shops.

I've almost fulfilled the terms and conditions of the meme...

And so now I have to tag six other bloggers, but I don't know six, so I'll tag the few I know.

http://shademag.blogspot.com/, http://sagecreativecorner.blogspot.com/

And lastly...here are the meme rules:

1. Link the person who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. List 6 unspectacular things about you
4. Tag 6 other bloggers by linking them

Throwing Shade - It Ain't Nothin' But A GOParty!

So a friend of mine posted this on Facebook, and because it discusses Palin and her qualifications (well, really the lack thereof) I decided to watch it. Much to my surprise *insert sarcasm here*, the video features a bunch of double talking, opinion changing, finger pointing Republican political "personalities," saying that people should back off of the issues of sexism, teenage pregnancy and inexperience that have surrounded Palin since she was first introduced to the majority of America (and probably John McCain) last Friday.

And surprise, surprise - it features my old buddy *continue inserting sarcasm* Bill O'Reilly. Pay special attention to how his views on teenage pregnancy, and who holds responsibility change. I'm gonna have to assume that in the cases of Jamie Lynn Spears and Bristol Palin, their pregnancies were not intentional. Having said that, I bet Bill O'Reilly's decision to sexually harass his co-worker was...hmmmmmm.

I just want to say that the double standard that has been demonstrated by members of the GOP on the issue of Palin's daughter's pregnancy doesn't surprise me at all. Let President Obama (yes, I'm claiming it) have had an older daughter who became pregnant - the GOP would have been ALL OVER it, going on and on about how he can't possibly take care of the country if he can't take care of his own household and family.
