    I am worried about the possibility of McKenna becoming our next governor and have been working hard on getting Inslee elected.

    In the last thread Bobfr posted that PoiticusUSA has been hacked. Google has a note on its search saying the site may have been compromised. I went to the site; you can still get to it, but it has no content. Fucking verminous cretins. They know they’re losing the argument with every day that passes; their only option is to try to shut us down. Hopefully Politicus had a backup stored offsite.

      Hey Ladyjazz, I just checked out a YT video of last year’s competition of the steel drummers. Fabulous. The first time I ever heard of such a thing was in college om 1970. I thought it was one of the most amazing creations, and the music was divine. Gotta get to T & T one day.
      Have a wonderful time 😀

    President must have heard a rumor that some of us enjoy the wet look 😉

    Where’s that other secret service guy that used to cover PBO? I haven’t seen him in awhile. He had quite a presence, older bald guy who looked like the secret service guy assigned to FLOTUS. They could be brothers. Maybe he’s on vacation. Oh and who replaced Reggie Love as PBO’s right hand man?

    • February 17, 2012 at 7:43 pm

      We used to call him Daddy Warbucks. He’s been gone for a quite a while – we think either re-assigned or retired. I really liked him.
      Marvin Nicholson took over Reggie’s duties. He’s the super tall guy who’s been PBO’s travel director for years.

    Ms. Chips, I have a site question. I want to look over all the comments I’ve made at TOD. Is there any way to do that? I tried using the “Search” function on my handle, but got very few hits back.

    Hi everyone, I’ve started a new thread for the pics of the schookids, this one was getting too long!


  16. February 17, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    I love the pic of PBO coming down the steps from the plane. Everybody (at least 90%) of the people have their phones out to take pictures. Once again proving without a doubt that people find him aloof and arrogant.

    Thanks Chips you energizer bunny lol!

    PResident Obama was great at Boeing today. Just listening to him is lifting our spirits, no?

    I LOVE the photos with the kids. I hope there is a video that will pop up somewhere. I’m kind of giddy picturing those kids screaming in excitement lol !

    Tch, tch, tch. Again running down the steps without holding on to anything. Tch, tch, tch.

    In the third picture THAT’S the right way a governor should greet the most powerful man on the planet. Not like that foolish governor who had the gall to put her finger in his face.
