A black and white decision
So the party is over and O’Bama is back in?
I must say that I greet the news with resounding indifference.
Since the departure of Dubya, Merkan politics has become frankly quite boring, and that is a good thing. The Merkans were far too keen on telling the entire world how to run things and threatening war in the name of peace. O’Bama stopped all that [apart from zapping the odd Afghan family or two with his remote controlled toys] and concentrated on fucking Merka up, leaving us to fuck up the rest of the world on our own.
Another thing seems to have changed in Merkan politics too. It seems that it is now compulsory for presidential candidates to have stupid names?
I mean to say…. Mitt? What kind of fucking name is that? He must have had one hell of a time at school! A name like Barrack is excusable because he is
a negro black nigger Afro-American non-white from Moneygall, but a Mitt has no such excuse. What the fuck were his parents thinking?
For as long as I can remember, they have had reasonably ordinary names – John, George, Harry, Bill, Richard, Jimmy and the like, with the occasional deviation into a Lyndon – so why have they suddenly changed? Is his name really Matt, but they can’t spell it [in typical Merkan fashion]? Is he really Tim with a dose of dyslexia?
I can’t wait for the next election now.
Will there be a Splurge Kowalski?
The mind boggles.
"and concentrated of"?… Should be on, shurely??
Bugger! Lousy spell checker. Thanks.
From Wikipedia: His parents named him Willard Mitt Romney, after a family friend, businessman J. Willard Marriott, and his father's cousin, Milton "Mitt" Romney, a former quarterback for the Chicago Bears. Romney was referred to as "Billy" until kindergarten, when he indicated a preference for "Mitt".
So "Mitt" was his own choice. No wonder he lost.
Welcome Tarfu! Why the hell couldn't he stick with Billy or even Will? Mitt is such a strange preference.
Wanker can be spelt many ways… Enda, Barrack, Mitt, Bertie, Herman, Angela, David, Manuel, Brian… you get my drift.
😀 Good one, and so true. [You forgot Charlie, by the way].
Thieving fucking bastard is more appropriate for Charlie, wanker just isn't forceful enough.
I do believe if Willard had
onewon (don't ask me but that's what Mitt was nicknamed towards the end) you'd have had plenty of fodder for posts concerning US politics. That being said, I'm relieved that he didn't win. I don't always agree with Obama but by and large I'd rather have him at the helm than ol' Mitt. Having Mitt in command would make me very nervous indeed.
Had one what?
What the…?!? One?? I meant won!!! That's what I get for not watching what my fingers were doing. Hey Grandad, could you fix that please?
No. Why should I be the only victim of the spelling police?
Heh, thanks anyway.
I noticed you lot in Vermont were quick to vote O'Bama in all right. You can't beat an Irishman.
Well, we're a pretty practical lot up here. We can generally see through all the rhetoric and bullshit to the person whose flapping his mouth. When it came down to bone, Romney wasn't it.
It's a good day for America and for the world.
Any day that Dubya isn't on the throne is a good day for the world. He was one seriously mad fucker.
Don't sit on the fence GD, say what you feel! A bit of a cove eh….
An acquaintance seemed regularly to spot an Irishman among gatherings of politicians, identifying him by his name, Feichin Pratt
That Pratt family are everywhere. The Dail is full of 'em for a start.
'Mitt' is a four letter clue to his real name which is inscribed by the Angel of Mormon on a big mountain in Utah.
His wife is the cryptic clue. Gives great head, though. The wife, I mean. Not Cu- er, 'Mitt'. Jayzus I nearly caused an international Incident. I'll rely on your software to keep me safe, aul fella. Hurray for the black lad!
Now you have completely lost me.
Talking of Missus Mitt – I believe she is delighted at not winning the election. It means she doesn't have to downsize her home.
Did you have to use the 'N' word? That's not right…
I didn't. I crossed it out.
Oh sorry, my mistake, its completely unreadable…
Indifferent to the American election result, no wonder you can find nothing to write about. 'Tired of the American election, tired of life'. If Obama hadn't been reelected, the world would have been a much scarier place.
I know you're old, but get a grip. There is still an interesting world out there. Perhaps you ought to do a bit of real rambling instead of just the head stuff, but I enjoy your post.
Welcome Mary! You must admit that US of A has become a lot less newsworthy since old Dubya flew off in his helicopter? I would write more about my physical ramblings but I wouldn't want to bore you all. Anyway I would be losing faith with the title of the site? 😉
Are you sure I'm welcome? I mean you don't seem too keen to invite us exiles back to your 'Gathering'. (Not that most of us would want to go, there's a reason why we left!)
For me the best outcome of Dubya's absence from our TV screens is my son no longer cites depression from catching sight of him on TV as an excuse for not getting out of bed! (mind you he still manages to spend a hell of a lot of time there-perhaps his head is rambling because his body sure ain't, and it's nothing to do with boring me with details.}
Long live Obama, and long live your ramblings, they make me laugh and are a good way of keeping up with 'The Old Sod'!
Of course you're welcome. everyone is welcome here [except politicians, anti-smokers, people who are cruel to dogs and a few others].
That "Gathering" thing is an embarrassment. They are blatantly trying to get people over here to fleece them of their cash. I believe they printed thousands of "Genuine Irish" certificates with the idea of flogging them to anyone who could prove their Irish heritage [at about $200 a pop]. They managed to sell a couple of hundred!
Don't worry about the son. Time will come when he has to deal with teenage kids of his own. 😈
Thanks for the welcome, and wise words concerning my son. When he's vertical he's actually a great guy.
The 'Gathering' business sounds incorrigible. Who the hell thought it up?
However, If 'Irish Certificates' are going for a couple of hundred $, how much do you reckon I could flog my passport for?!
