willis is pretty much disgusted with everything political so I'm counting on the joy of the season to help my mood.....who better than muppets to bring cheer to anyone. Let me be the first to wish anyone that passes this way, Have a Very Merry One!

Obama's Nobel peace award may be a bit of a contradiction. Particularly right after announcing plans to add 30000 troops to the war in Afghanistan. Obama himself was very humble about the event although it gave those on the right some crap to feed on. My opinion is that while this may be a contradiction of sorts, it's not as bad as Bush (42) having a fuckin library.

It'll be interesting to see what if anything, is said about Huckabee's commuting a 108 year sentence on Maurice Clemmons. Clemmons killed four police officers in Washington on 11/29 and was himself killed by police several days later. Huckabee caught a fair degree of grief from both the left and right for his actions while he was governor of Arkansas and has stood his ground.
I don't have much use for Huckabee. To me he is one example of what's wrong on the political right. I say "one example" as each of the republican nominees for the presidential election in 2008 brought their own slice of batshit crazy to the table (McCain = war is good, Rudy = everything is 9/11, Fred = senility, Tancredo = wholly crap!, etc). That and since then Bible-Huck got his own show on Fox to continue to show us why we should be thankful he didn't get close to being elected. That said, I'm backing Huckabee (just this once, dammit) sticking with his decision on Clemmons (one might say there's little else he can do and one would probably be right). However, living here in the Republic of East Texas and watching our Governor Perry repeatedly refuse to move on the death penalty against the recommendations of parole boards and others for several Texas inmates makes Huckabees's actions laudable by comparison....just sayin. It shows an unexpected degree of open-mindedness from a member of a crowd that views everything in black and white.

Apparent non-celebrities crash White House party, Tiger Woods wrecked his car, Oprah is gonna quit while Lou Dobbs did and Micheal Jackson is still dead. On less important matters, we are gonna send about 30000 (the population of Dorchester County, Maryland) more troops over to Afghanistan.........the most awesome war ever!
