The gormless response of the left to the Tea Party’s Victories is always amusing.

Well, the gormless Nancy Pelosi has stepped in it again with her crass, anti-Semitic remarks about Republican Jews and Republicans in general. I notice elsewhere that she has a new Archbishop who will be installed on the Feast Day of St. Francis. His Italian name translates to "Heart of a Lion". I pray that he lives up to his name and that he summons her for a consultation poste haste. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2913111/posts

Barack’s foreign policy’s formless
“I’ll just talk” and the world will be stormless
No war and no threat
“I’m so cool; there’s no sweat”
So naïve, so corrupt, and so gormless

I’m told that the new Archbishop is stepping into a den of lions (San Fran) and needs our prayers in support for the job ahead.

Alternate meaning: Gormless The absence of Gorm, first King of the Danes (C936AD)



Old Gorm is dead and gone,
Left me here to sing his song,
Pretty little girl with the red dress on,
Old Gorm is dead and gone.

Are goats less gormless than Obambi....?

It is easier to teach goats to surf than for Obambi to understand how a lemonade stand works....

Here are the ungormless goats surfing ....

Wow, he is articulate and awesome! We await the naming of our new Bishop, the liberal Bishop Clark is retiring. Clark got reprimanded by the Pope for allowing and attending same sex ceremonies being done by a Catholic priest in the diocese. That was many, many years ago now. I am hoping for someone like this Archbishop. A breath of fresh air is much needed in our happy slappy community.

Gormless and rude, our president. video with his public rudeness......shows how arrogant he is, when he speaks you better listen...reminds me of when he stalked off while Gov Jan Brewer was chastising him.

I just LOVE our new jr pastor. I smile when I see him in the church as I walk in. The two priests rotate around the county churches, we never know who will be there when we arrive. I pray we get a devoted conservative Catholic as bishop. Most hope I have had in ages. (we will not mention the SCOTUS decision....or I may plunge into the depths of despair AGAIN)

I am busy doing my semiannual cleaning, purging and general spruce up. Stayed up till 2am to finish off a project. Will be at it all week. No kiddies this week. The mom is after me to watch them before and after school. Wants me to tutor the older one and supervise his homework. That is a sure fire way to make me the evil one. Debating that, cleaning and the Olympics have left me with no time for Twitter or news. Better ping me to notable things like the HRtwitter scandal. Another possible sandusky? I feel like I have been in another world all week.
