Bill Maher claims his use of the "c" word was a simple gambol across the stage, but Rush committed a HUGE sin.

Bill Maher: Me calling Sarah Palin a ‘c---’ is totally different than Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’

Yeah, it is different, for starters we can print the word slut, not "c---".

Rise and Shine.....tis a dreary rainy day here in the once frozen tundra (soggy mess instead, must be global warming). Cheer me up and get an extra +.

Good Morning!

I must now venture out into the world and gambol my health away.

If this were Star Trek, I'd be wearing a red shirt, but it's green today.

IN a mere 4 days, Spring officially arrives, and is celebrated in a gambol manner with the shedding of heavy jackets and sweaters to thinner clothes and refreshment for the old eyes.

Barack and wife take their vacations, love to gambol
Golf and shopping, shoot some hoops, perhaps just amble
Back home, four dollar gas
The unemployed are on their ass
And the deficit economy’s in a shamble

I got thoroughly soaked at the park this morning, with lightning and thunder all around but at least it didn’t hail. I gamboled back to the car, wrapped up in a big towel, and came home.

Good morning Ti - I got my garden all planted over the past two days - 80 degrees and I have a tiny bit of a sunburn on my nose (despite my best efforts)....can you envision having to turn your air conditioner on in mid March? Sending warmth your way.....

We’ve been having a heat wave. 70s during the day, mid 50s at night. Sleeping with the windows cracked open. Big rumbling thunderstorm in the wee hours.

Where is Al Gore? He should be all over this.

She just finished the first 3 days of standardized testing, so she’s happy not to have to do that today.

She got selected for County Band, too. I didn’t even know they did such a thing for 5th graders.

I think that douche, Beckel, mentioned on The Five yesterday that we've had our hottest summers EVER the past two years. So he is Gore's mouthpiece.

Oh I have meant to tell you all: I got an email from my electricity provider the other day giving me the opportunity to save the environment by signing up to purchase Carbon Offsets for $5.95 a month! Seriously....it is starting.

Do you have electricity supplier choice down there? I can decide who I buy my power generation from (distribution and that is still from the local utility).

I do not voluntarily pay extra to use companies that make green power.

Do not confuse “Gamble”
With the homonym “Gambol”
If you win big at the first one
You may have some great fum
By doing the second around the ensemble.

Grow a beard and start writing about deer going to the bathroom in the woods and you’ve got a second career as an English teacher at any American university. And with your math degree, at least you’ll be able to figure out the mean score from 5 tests, which is something my college English teacher couldn’t do.

Here is the wording:

Spring is a time of renewal, and now you can help support the environment through a low, flat monthly fee. Your contribution will go toward the purchase of carbon offsets to reduce the harmful effects of carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases. Donations will also be made to EarthShare of Texas®, which supports 38 environmental programs right here in Texas.

Choose from two program options:

Gold: $5.95/month

Silver: $3.95/month

Enroll in Reliant EcoShare

It is 68 here-breezy and mostly cloudy-a typical March day-

As Obama is squeezed harder
His back is against the wall
But he plays the blame game-
Digs in and continues to stall

He ignores that we are not happy-
We don’t laugh and gambol about
And every time we buy some gas
We just go back home to pout

So have fun, king Louis wannabe-
Both you and Michelle Antoinette
Come November you’ll be leaving
Without the limo, golf cart or jet...

“38 environmental programs right here in Texas.” Okay-now I know what to ask my state rep to lobby against first when the budget comes up-and I’m a pretty green sort of person, as long as it is privately funded...

We have a co-op out here, and for the last 6 years or so, you can sign up to get most of your electricity from wind power-the coop gets over 27% of energy from windpower, and it increases every year. I signed up for it the first year, and it does save money per kilowatt hr. in summer. But those wind farms it comes from are in West Texas-I would not sign up if it was in any other state. We don’t have so many NIMBYs in the west Texas desert, like Cali does-windpower works better without them...

The University of Dallas, xsteen’s alma mater, just sent me an email soliciting funds for their project called Crucifixes for the Classroom. They have one in some but not in all classrooms and so what a great idea to solicit funds, it totally sucked me in. Georgetown probably solicits funds to keep them OUT.
