“She’s So European” just played on my iPod shuffle while I was cleaning, no lie! I think Donnie Iris has ensorcelled the Pgh girls today! It also served up, “I Can’t Hear You”. Classic line.....stop all yer bitchen’, back in the kitchen......which was ironic as I was scrubbing the back splash.

It’s all gravy, right? Besides, you’d be in a conundrum if the Caps won the Cup with a coach you hate.

Senator Paul had a great comment on the President's ensorcellment with all things homosexual. I wonder if he'll have to apologize.

I hope that fewer and fewer voters will be ensorcelled by obama and his camp-followers. His changey-hopey mantra has worn thin long ago, and his entire Presidency has been captured by the gaysbians.

True. i am LESS depressed than i was after Monday PM's game where i truly felt we would win and then it was gone in a flash with the bad penalty.. and yes, Dale Hunter is even yet getting accolades from the twitterverse for bringing them this far, but he is NOT the guy for this team. And if they blow up the team and keep this guy, it will really be head-exploding time. Wonder if GMGM will keep his job. He wasn't happy with the squandered powerplay in the third period, either.

One of Bammy's butt "brothas" in Houston, Al Green, is currently on tv saying that the "first gay president" isn't really a big deal because they dubbed clinton as the "first black president" - but didn't say anything about the halo around his head. He did claim all the 2.something million jobs bammy has created...???

(funny but when I was proofreading this I had left out the word "million" after jobs so it read 2.something jobs...which is of course wrong since he has 20 or 30 czars jobs he created but probably closer to the truth than several million)

The chatter here is that it may not be feasible to keep Crosby-Malkin-Staal. Do you keep Staal as a formidible, young #2 center or keep Malkin to be a backup to Crosby in case of injury?

If Rand Paul slurred Obama by saying “gayer,” then Newsweek just did so too.

When, of human events, in the course’ll
Let a fraud like Obama ensorcell
Those weak and deranged
Who want liberty changed
They’ll be happy to beg for each morsel

No, people are not self aware. I knew I was “different”, when in 10th grade, I went to a weekend long leadership conference. On the last day, they had a motivational speaker, getting 200 teenagers all pumped up. Seriously, there were girls at my table who were crying.....this guy was just stoking up everyone’s emotions. And I felt myself also with the euphoric feelings, until CRASH! I woke up. It was so strange, but I realized that I was being deliberately manipulated into feeling something.......and so it just stopped for me. But I looked around, and everyone else was totally swept away. And I was alone. It is a lesson I never forgot.

And I remembered it watching the last election and the raptures people were experiencing. They are trying to recreate it again this year, but apparently, I am not the only one that woke up.

Rush Limbaugh refers to those rare occurrences by the mainstream media as "random acts of journalism."

I wonder about Malkin, he played so well when the eggshell capt was out nursing his cracked skull and he seemed to recede again in the playoffs when sid was back. i think he would perform better if he weren’t in the background.

it’s bizarre to me. robin roberts, if that’s what her name is, that interviewed him when he CAME OUT for gay marriage, said she had CHILLS. i mean SERIOUSLY, how can you be a grown up, ostensible professional journalist and say that kind of crap?

We had a similiar thing when I was in high school - some of the country club Moms started up a sort of dance club and we had various dances throughout the year - a sock hop, a formal, a country music dance, etc. It was a lot of fun and of course prepared us for a future of not making a fool of ourselves in front of others. ;^)

i think like anderson cooper, commonly understood to be gay, but not openly gay, and of course that’s likely why she was chosen for the interview.

I believe that a “cotillion” is the approximate amount of the annual deficit in a second Obama term.

my girls did not have home ec and thus have NO IDEA how to set a table! i am having to teach this now at ages 17 and 23. Granted, it’s my fault for not having them doing it at a younger age at home, but home ec taught me how to set a table!

The ensorcellment of the left for Marxist Blacks is in direct opposite proportion to their Unmitigated Loathing of Conservative Blacks.

Well, Robin Roberts also did the interview on one of the last episodes of Hannah Montana, where Hannah CAME OUT as Miley Stewart. So, how seriously can we take Robin Roberts anyway?

p.s. at the time, I had two preteens, it is allowed that I know this.
