TOPICS: Word For The Day
KEYWORDS:
Our Republican Senators, usually naif Rinos eager to go along to get along, are on the warpath about the Obama administration's stifling of free speech. Sen. Mitch McConnell is speaking out. He is singling out David Axelrod's desire to stifle a group's right to band together for a political cause and speak out. Axelrod wants the federal government to have the right to shut down such free speech. Their goal has been to shut down the TEA Party and the IRS has been doing just that.

Obama will tell any lie if
It can sway the political naif
If the truth is rejected
And he gets re-elected
Then kiss this poor country good-bye, if...

Is this a case of the naif preying upon the naif? If you create an APP and call it “Boy-Ahoy”, what could possibly go wrong?

Good riddance, but there will be 10 more that pop up to take its place, I fear.

Anyone else remember Bugs Bunny using the term “naif” to describe one of his fellow cartoon characters?

Bugs Bunny said to Elmer Fudd as he missed Bugs again, “What a naif.” Bugs continued to munch on his carrot.

I saw this in a Sam's Club ad. All-American Velveeta now has a "queso blanco" version. That's an omen.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

With so much going down now
You really have to wonder
How some are such naifs that
They can’t hear the thunder

Of the incoming tide about
To inundate all the fools
Who think celebrity dinners
Are something other than tools

To keep an idiot in office
So he can continue to rob
The treasury and the people
Instead of doing his job

Somehow, I doubt that skanky actors and their hangers-on with room temperature IQ’s and snooty accents appeal that much to average people...
