Will our American friends understand this?

Not sure of the original author. Has been circulating on email. Don’t agree with every single entry but most are pretty spot on. I, and I’m sure Ash, Spot, D and any other Aussies will be more than happy to help out with any translation queries.

17. You believe it makes sense for a country to have a $1 coin that’s twice as big as its $2 coin.

27. You believe that the more you shorten someone’s name the more you like them.
28. Whatever your linguistic skills, you find yourself able to order takeaway fluently in every Asian language.

The Lion Sleeps Tonight (animation)…Night, All…


John Derbyshire – of all the unlikely sources for this kind of thing! – over at The Corner somehow got a cartoon that has to have been inspired by my grandmother.


See what I mean? There’s just no doubt about it.

Texas Caucus Count Takes Wind Out of Clinton’s Wins


Late-breaking numbers out of Texas’ odd two-phase voting system put an asterisk on Hillary Clinton’s Tuesday night victory speech, showing gains made by Barack Obama in the delegate grab race had all but numerically canceled out her big win in Ohio.

Although Clinton got a major boost in morale by winning more raw votes than Obama in Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island (she lost to Obama in Vermont), an Associated Press count of the delegates shows Clinton only reduced her opponent’s lead in delegates by 12.

In the overall race for the nomination, Obama had 1,567 delegates, including separately chosen party and elected officials known as superdelegates. Clinton had 1,462. It takes 2,025 delegates to secure the Democratic nomination.

SHIT!….OH..HI!…My what a surprise…..ummmm, just forgot THIS….Fox News

Bugs Bunny vs. Daffy Duck

How did we reach the point at which Sen. Clinton, the clear Democratic front-runner six months ago, needs clear wins in Texas and Ohio to mute the calls for her to end her campaign?

There’s no unified field theory that answers this question: You can give more or less weight to Obama’s political magnetism, the tactical and strategic miscalculations of the Clinton campaign, the delegate-allocation rules that weakened the punch of Clinton’s big-state wins, the crucial difficulty of a former first lady who embodies Restoration competing in an election in which change is the watchword. And here’s another explanation for this remarkable reversal of fortune, one that represents for me one of the few really reliable rules of presidential political warfare: Bugs Bunny always beats Daffy Duck.

Is there any doubt about who is Bugs and who is Daffy between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama? When Clinton insisted that Obama not simply “denounce” Louis Farrakhan but “reject him,” Obama shrugged. Well, he said, I don’t really see any difference, but if you think there is, I reject and denounce. Indeed, throughout the debate, Obama leaned back and asked for time with the flick of a finger, as if summoning a waiter for another bottle of wine. Clinton, meanwhile, leaned forward, pushing her points with grim determination.

The Bugs-Daffy dichotomy gets intriguing when you try to apply it to the general election. If Clinton pulls out the nomination, it will be Daffy vs. Daffy. There is no doubt that John McCain takes on politics with a Daffy-like suspicion of the corrupt, feckless folks about him. If Obama prevails in the primaries, we will have a dramatic Bugs-Daffy face-off. And it may be that McCain will be the candidate to break the losing Daffy pattern, because he’ll be able to argue successfully that in a dangerous world, you need a president more in touch with the dark side of human nature. This argument might even work for Clinton if the primary battle goes on past tonight. Especially given the current Bugs in the White House.

Have been thinking (save it, heard it all..lol) on this. Is there a kind of subliminal “racial” message this Slate writer was getting at…or just lept to, without thinking?

Reason IS…. One is Black, the other is…well, Gray. Damn near as in real time. Know what I mean?

Nahhhh! Surely I’m overthinking or reading something that, isn’t there.

Everyone knows, that the Left adores all of it’s people, right?
