Sudorific sounds odorific! In any case, that reminds me of the Won. Michelle says that he all “smelly and snorey” when he awakes in the morning and the girls don’t like to be around him. So, we can saay that in the morning, Obama is sudorific until he hits the shower.

I imagine Rafiki was pretty sudorific when he made that pronouncement. He’s a baboon, and all, and I don’t think they shower.

Our pseud-horrific bungler,
Der Reader, in chief,
Has begun to sudorifically,
Sweat even the small stuff.

He used to have a worry, about the size of ears,
And now we tend to mock the things he fears.

He cannot vote just present,
From his vacation lounge,
His words get heard though dissonance,
Attends the meaning-scrounge.

He cannot forge a forum,
Among his ardent fans,
Assembling but a quorum,
Within great bleacher stands.

Where once they gasped and fainted,
Now they merely yawn,
And now the twilight of his reign,
Becomes our bright new dawn.

.

“It is time,” indeed.

How disgusting and low class to say something like that about your husband, and even worse when he is the leader of the free world! Could they disgust me any more?

I haven’t thought about Rafiki in a long time. when my daughter was smaller, we used to watch Timon & Pumbaa cartoons as a bedtime ritual. They were pretty good.

As a result of this, I'm sure airport security will become even more of a sudorific experience.

They probably can disgust you even more! i am so depressed about the Caps devastating loss last night and i had the conservative paralegal in here commiserating with me over the election stuff just now. She is going up to Pittsburgh for Memorial Day and is going to talk to each of her relatives to get them on board. Her brother is a GUN NUT so she is going to work that angle with him, telling him sure as shooting,Obams will be gun grabbing in a second term, etc. They hate Obama but say they can’t vote for Romney, so she has to motivate them to pull that R lever.

Well the EU/USD just broke below $1.30, let the asset puking commence. There is no safe haven. None.

Though I’m thinking of going short.

I had to retire early last night, so missed all the “excitement.” It seemed reminiscent of what happened TO the Rangers five years ago in Buffalo when Drury scored the very late in Game 5 for the Sabres to tie, then BUF won it in OT on an early power play goal. The numbed Rangers then lost the series in the sixth game at home. It should be interesting to see how the Caps respond tomorrow night.

I noted too that Phoenix clinched their series at home in 5 vs Nashville. Sorry to see the Preds out so soon — I’m not enamored with a “Southwest” final series... I was pulling for Paul Gaustad to go far in the playoffs this year, but I guess that’s what happens to a team when you deal with the Sabres ;-)

yes it is exactly like what happened to the Rangers themselves in that series. maybe the Caps will have more grit, i don’t know. no one expected them to get this far, that’s for darn sure. least of all me. believe me, seeing OV et al. diving to block shots has Caps fans sitting back on their heels.

Good word-

Apparently Obama regards
The economy as a sudorific-
Any mention of its anemia
Brings denials loud and prolific

He breaks into a flop sweat
As his numbers begin to slide
And digs into his bag of tricks
For one or two he has not tried

He might just as well forget it
He’s as effective as Nixon’s ghost-
With Afghanistan as his Viet Nam
His microwave is set on “toast

It began storming last night-we need rain-and it has been just slow, soaking rain off and on since this morning-almost 4 inches since last night. But it gave me this easrworm-

She cried to the southern wind
About a love that was sure to end
Every dream in her heart was gone
Headin’ for a Showdown

Bad dreamer, what’s your name
Looks like we’re ridin’ on the same train
Looks as through there’ll be more pain
There’s gonna be a Showdown

And it’s rainin’ all over the world
It’s raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

Can't. Stop. Laughing.

Sometimes he just doesn’t quite get his audience, as when he dropped a truth-bomb from G. K. Chesterton: “It’s not that Christianity has been tried and found wanting; it’s been found difficult and left untried.” He was speaking to AIPAC, the Jewish pro-Israel lobby.

Well, thank you! I turned on the TV to get some news and the first thing I heard was some pundit at Fox insisting that Joe Biden was capable of independent thought-I thought that was nicer than saying he’s a loose cannon...

We have a bunch of FAs coming up this summer too. We’ll see how loyal Suter is to the organization that did its part to bring a championship home. At this point, I’m just grateful we didn’t get shut out in the last game. They did their best and no one could have asked for more.

I’m always surprised when someone says they won’t vote for the “lesser of two evils”......uh, didn’t they just say one is less evil than the other? That should be the answer.
