Obama Sings ! & Republicans are poetic!

 Yupperz..... Obama CAN sing.... course ... so can I !  Well, mostly in the shower, see, and since the divorce (well, even a bit before the dovice, dorice, deeforce... whatever) I mostly showered alone, so my eloquent vocal renditions were mostly lost on a general public.  Now, I could rectify that, maybe, ya know, put a video on you-tube or something... but then it would not be a genial public to say nothing of a general public.

Anyways... I still do that and it does get the cockroaches out of the apartment for awhile and so I will keep it up.

I also was once of a mind to compose poetry in the shower.... OH, but the paper got really wet and the pen didn't work well and if I got stuck on a line or whatever and stayed in the shower overly long... why gosh& stuff, my toes would get all wrinkly and gees, I would often run out of hot water, cause see, it would sometimes take me awhile to find rhyming words... ( hey, go ahead,,, YOU find a rhyme for Zucchini real quick, huh.. and I don't just mean eenie-meanie, ok!!)
Well....anyways... this got me to thinking... I mean about Obama singing and poetry and whatever-ish.... that there was once a prominent Republican that was well noted for his..............

Yessirre bob.... I mean it!  Now this may be old stuff... but it is still GOOD stuff... so with out further adios or adoos or whatever.... I bring you.... some select poety, poetry of former Defense Secretary Donal Rumsfeld..... (and hey, with a name like Rumsfeld, youse gotzta be GOOD!

The Unknown

 As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.
We also know
There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don't know
We don't know.

Glass Box 

 You know, it's the old glass box at the—
At the gas station,
Where you're using those little things
Trying to pick up the prize,
And you can't find it.
And it's all these arms are going down in there,
And so you keep dropping it
And picking it up again and moving it,
Some of you are probably too young to remember those—
Those glass boxes,
But they used to have them
At all the gas stations
When I was a kid.

A Confession

 Once in a while,
I'm standing here, doing something.
And I think,
"What in the world am I doing here?"
It's a big surprise.
—May 16, 2001, interview with the New York Times

You're going to be told lots of things.
You get told things every day that don't happen.
It doesn't seem to bother people, they don't—
It's printed in the press.
The world thinks all these things happen.
They never happened.
Everyone's so eager to get the story
Before in fact the story's there
That the world is constantly being fed
Things that haven't happened.
All I can tell you is,
It hasn't happened.
It's going to happen.
The Digital RevolutionOh my goodness gracious,
What you can buy off the Internet
In terms of overhead photography!
A trained ape can know an awful lot
Of what is going on in this world,
Just by punching on his mouse
For a relatively modest cost!

The Situation

Things will not be necessarily continuous.
The fact that they are something other than perfectly continuous
Ought not to be characterized as a pause.
There will be some things that people will see.
There will be some things that people won't see.
And life goes on.
—Oct. 12, 2001, Department of Defense news briefing

 I think what you'll find,
I think what you'll find is,
Whatever it is we do substantively,
There will be near-perfect clarity
               As to what it is.
And it will be known,
And it will be known to the Congress,
And it will be known to you,
Probably before we decide it,
               But it will be known.

Tahini and Wahini come to mind immediately to me :P. So there.
And the rummy poetry was kinda good in a sick sorta weird way.

they tell Mittens he's gotta be mad, but Mittens is terrible at pretending to be mad, and when he really gets rilled, he's off the reservation so to speak and they don't want that. Conundrum.

Was Obama just born under a lucky star? Borowitz said aids say they can't get the Prez to stop laughing since he turned on the SC returns.

Ain't life a hoot?

holycrap are you kidding??? These moron Righties are even more moron then I previously thought geez a loueeeeze!!

S.W. Anderson said...

Rumsfeld was, and undoubtedly still is, way too full of himself. For my part, I had a belly full of him decades before he turned up in the Bush administration.

Sue.... Rummy was a very articulate person..... hehehe

SW...I thought that most of the Bush Team were extremely egotistic. The current crop of GOPers is trying to emulate. Sheesh.

As long as they stay in their own shower while they're emulating, I don't care what they do.

okjimm said...

Sherry.... you're comment got caught in Spam... that is about the third time. I don't understand>>>??

Murr..... no one, but no one... wants to shower with a Repub. It becomes impossible to get clean.

Ahab said...

To make it easier to compose poetry in the shower without the paper getting wet, may I suggest writing poetry on the shower walls with crayons? They're waterproof.

Life As I Know It Now said...


republicans are all wet but somehow they never come clean :)

okjimm said...

Ahab... sounds good. First need to remove soap scum.

Libs ... it must be the soap, huh?
