Well, I would argue that Elvis Presley’s “Hound Dog” may have been the one good thing on that list to happen on August 4.

Also born on this day, and in the same year!!!! is my niece, Patty.

Happy 49th to Patty in Seattle!

Patty is too smart to be a fan of P-BO, however. Good thing ‘cause she’s got a smart husband and three smart sons too. The oldest is old enough to vote!

Celebrating O-Bummer’s birthday is a lot less important than celebrating “Festivus”.
Come to think about it, Festivus is probably more real than anything we know about O-Bummer ;^)

Chicago does have a obummer hangout favorite called Man's Country, in a section of Chicago known as “Boys Town” for obvious reasons.

obummer and rahm have been known to frequent the joint. Google Man's Country and see the connection.

And now that Michelle is out of the country (a birthday gift from her to him), we hear that obummer is coming to Chicago to help out a basketball playing buddy of his who is running for a Senate seat.

And you can bet he will be seeing his friends and lovers. It's “boy's night out” dontcha know.

"I was married on Aug 4th. I’ll never make that mistake again."

What? To get married on Aug. 4th, or to get married?

In court, No.

In the press, Yes.

And, of course, the latter is the only one that counts these days.

I have read the transcript of the Lizzie Borden trial (I know, I need to get a life) and became convinced she did it, but I think the jury got it right. She was so darned good at covering her tracks you couldn’t say guilt was proved beyond a reasonable doubt. Of course, in those days they had none of the forensics we have today.
