When Stupidity Can Absolutely NOT be Mistaken for Balls

I called my Mom today as I was running errands. I called her as the nightly news was on. I asked her if it was a bad time, and she said no, it was OK.

I didn't think anything of it.

We were ending the conversation and something came up about Nancy Pelosi.

Folks, I have to tell you, how embarrassing for us. Really. She is such a dope.

WHO... IN THE HELL... goes toe to toe WITH the CIA?!


Good Lord. I've been keeping abreast of it via the internet newsources, and I'm telling you, my first reaction is 'Pull up the chairs and bring the popcorn.'

Quite honestly there is no one in our government I'd like to see crash and burn more, than Nancy Pelosi.

Now I know how my folks feel politically, and I know they aren't a fan of Nancy Pelosi's any more than I am... and my folks are extraordinarily well read and my Mom is exceedingly intuitive and well grounded, so when she speaks of her societal opinions, I listen.

She hears and sees things that some of us don't... at least we don't at first. It's interesting.

So as we were hanging up, she asked me if I'd been keeping up with this Pelosi fiasco and I was telling her how aghast I was and she was telling me likewise and then she informed me... that I had called just as the nightly news was covering the Pelosi story and that she'd TiVo'd it so she'd not miss it.

I don't know why, but that cracked me up. You had to hear our conversation, which I can't quote because we were bantering so much about it back and forth, I would not do it justice.

It was the way she said it. I think we're both just completely fascinated with the horror of it all.


So to all of you reading this, as fascinated as my Mom and I, I say, "I've got the chairs pulled up and I have Snow Caps. You bring the popcorn..."

I can't help but think Obambi will be quietly happy to see her go. She can't expect any help from that corner. I don't really think Washington is big enough for those two ambitious egos anyhows.
