The US goobermint is a gigantic load of qua-qua.

(n.b. in Español, 'qu' is pronounced as 'k', notes your Panamanian correspondent...)

I should explain:

Fox & Friends qua news source is failing fast.

If you remove the hi-jinks, the ads, and the nonsense out of the 3 hour Fox & Friends program, you have only about 5 minutes of headlines and minimal explanation left.

Qua

A noun, a qua is water. Those years of watching the Three Stooges weren’t wasted.

Glad you are walking better!

In the current shutdown melee
The qua experts are many and free-
Selling their self-made solutions
Every time you turn in the TV

To get a bit of factual news-
But that bare and simple thing
Has become buried in the rhetoric
That hysterical liberals fling

Their scolding and lecturing
Is not exactly a perfected art-
They don’t get the Nixon lesson
And that isn’t very smart...

Lets talkik about talking.

Cruz has town Hall gets 100k.

Sebilious, has that douchebag Rooney(making the o fer so sweet, Sorry Dave)and Heinz Field...draws 100.

The media spin on this is so distorted includong by our alleged Conservative media its The World Turned Upside Down.

I get lib morning news, and what I see is a bajillion $ worth of free ad time for Boehner et al.no Reid, no Barry, just closed monuments and Boner statements. In NY?
