Goal Posts My A__! 24 Hour Protection, Study Hall, Flicks, Christmas Flowers

DeLay’s muchachito who got taken out by Ciro The Man the other day was complaining that the goals posts were moved and that’s why he couldn’t win. Sooooorrrrry! How about what happened in 2003 when the rules were changed in the middle of the game as well as the venues. As they say in GOPspeak – go back home to where you came from.

It would probably be a good idea for U.S. Senate Dems to put up a 24 hour around the clock armed guard detail at the South Dakota Dem Senator’s hospital room, kind of the like the guards they put around Vito Corleone. I’m also talking about background, errr voter history checks on doctors, nurses, technicians – you know what I mean. Commentary doesn’t even want to think about losing the U.S. Senate before we even take it.

Don’t you get the feeling that the Iraq Study Group recommendations are already collecting dust? From ballyhoo to boohoohoo – what did you expect? It looks like as long a W is prez, those recommendations are going nowhere. “Thanks Jimmy Boy!” That’s what W is saying to the fella who pulled the hidden ball trick on Dems - remember Florida?

On a lighter note, Commentary doesn’t think we need another Rocky flick. I guess someone forgot to tell Sly. “Rocky Balboa” will be hitting the silver screens next week but I don’t think I’ll be shelling out buckos – sorry. I guess Sly was inspired by George Foreman. I guess maybe he’ll go into some cooking appliance huckstering business afterwards.

Speaking of flicks, is this too “good?” Two new movies will be coming out later this month – “The Good German” with George Clooney and “The Good Shepherd” with Matt Damon. Why didn’t they just do one called “The Good German Shepherd?” Awwwww!

On the subject of Christmas tunes, Commentary thinks the “Twelve Days of Christmas” by The Muppets and the late John Denver is pretty cool. Also, try to check out Stevie Nick’s version of “Silent Night” and “Siver Bells” by Gloria Estefan.

Ok, so you had to ask. There are 540 words in “Twas the Night Before Christmas” – “he spoke not a word, but went straight to his work…..”

Speaking of mistletoe, how come it gets to be the flower that gets all the kissing action? Why not the rose? Did you know that up until two years ago, the mistletoe was the official flower of Oklahoma, then it was replaced by, you guessed it, the Oklahoma Rose.
