One has to wonder if the Washington Post now fabricates news. The Hit piece on Romney has a shine to it that only a camarilla of Obama minions could polish. The news started to break by early afternoon of the day it hit the newstands. Twitter was on top of it.

Cracks in the Washington Post story on Romney’s ‘pranks’ emerge

With the assistance of the Obama camarilla, a witness to Romney ‘s antics while a teen has produced a horror story about him.... except the witness admits he wasn’t there and heard the story from the Reporter.

Seeking evidence, Barack’s camarilla
Try Romney’s pals; not one scintilla
Is found that he’s bad
Was a bully or cad
Bottom line is that Mitt’s plain vanilla

I believe that the power of the camarilla that was once the MSM has been forever shattered by twitter. I am a relatively late adopter, but wows, it is really something to watch narratives crumble in real time. It happens to a great extent on free republic, but the swift decimation of liberal memes is astounding. I particularly enjoy the #hashtag hijack game.

Time should really be ashamed. They took something precious and turned it into smut. And yes, I told my youngest that if he could sing his ABC’s, he didn’t need to nurse anymore. (he was precocious, and could do it at 2.5.......)

O’s camarilla is full of people who grew up as ex-patriots. i.e Valerie Jarret grew up in Iran, Tim Geithnr grew up in Thailand, Stephen Cho China, etc.

Looks like what the WaPo has left are some classmates who grew up to be Dems trying to inflate an incident into a homosexual attack. The only Rep in the story has been edited out, bc he said it was factually inaccurate. I don’t believe any of it now. This is the evolving week of SSM, after all. Another epic fail for the O camarilla.

A+++ Excellent! You are the master of the limerick!

Another good Spanish word kidnapped by the English speakers. Turn about is fair play...the Tex Mex b-ball crowd hijacked “lemonade.”

Still drizzly here-yay-I can catch up on research for that big bid (turf roof, anyone?) and freep-

The word sounds like a confection made with sugar, cooked till melted and brown...

Obama jumped the shark again-
Same gender marriage and more
His camarilla of secret advisers
Has made this mistake before

The war on this, the war on that
And don’t forget evil big oil-
The EPA didn’t, and now the price
Of gas makes everyone’s blood boil

Just let the idiots keep it up
Like Nixon’s and Carter’s bunch-
They only make it more likely
That November is a knockout punch

This local restaurant has a very cool garden on its roof. It was the talk of the town when they built it.

Thank you!

Roof gardens are neat-this customer is playing with the idea of a turf roof on his remodeled garage, but I don’t think it is going to happen-my contractor friend thinks it is inappropriate for both the terrain and the existing structure-I tend to agree-it will just be a flooding hazard and a dirt slide onto his driveway when it rains like it has this week...

My yard is mostly Buffalo grass-the Comanche hybrid variety-very drought tolerant, I love it-but the problem with the customer’s garage roof is that-for reasons too convoluted to be understood by reasonable minds-it backs up on a cliff that overhangs about 40% of it. Hence the flooding/washing out. If it were me, I’d tear the thing down and rebuild it elsewhere on the property.

It’s hard to convince people to do something reasonable once they get a crazy idea in their heads.

True, but if he wants us to do the remodel, he is going to have to stay within the perameters of what is reasonable to solve his garage flooding problem-not add to it just because he saw something on the internet and thought it was cool. The contractor friend I work for doesn’t want to be sued, no matter how hard work is to come by right now, and I’m not going to work on something crazy, either.
