Count me in as one of the disappointed when President Obama released his birth certificate. I enjoyed watching people make fools of themselves, but alas – at least they can still do that. Meanwhile, birthers may be a new low point in US politics.
Congratulations to Mr. Trump on achieving a “will definitely not vote for” rating in the range of Sarah Palin. (USA Today/Gallup poll) Donald the Ronald McDonald loves the spotlight and will milk it for all that it’s worth. Politically, he is a buffoon, yet he should be proud of reaching the level of the nincompoop.
Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) seeming is leaving the door open to ceasing government subsidies to oil companies. I wonder, with their profits, why do they receive subsidies? Oh, I forgot – it is effective lobbying!
David Brooks had this interesting column about disconnection and the current political climate. Remember all the comments about political discourse after the Gifford’s shooting? Ah yes, nothing like a short memory.
Former Democratic candidate Gary Hart writes why he is a republican.
Last Sunday’s This Week (ABC) devoted the entire show to “God and Government”. It was an enlightening hour, of which I may write about in the future.

Ohio State football fans are defending Coach Tressell (for lying to the NCAA investigators).What if the university fires him AND the NCAA bans him from coaching for the number of years remaining on his OSU contract? Wouldn’t that be an interesting message! (I must be dreaming.)
We Cincinnatians have not only had the wettest April on record; and it may become our wettest month ever on record! Come on rain!
Congratulations to me. April 2011 was the blogs best month ever! On the other hand, this week’s numbers are trending downward.
How could I forget this – but congratulations to Prince William and Kate. This gift of a short bit of British humor is a fitting. Hope everyone as a safe weekend.
