What We Have to Look Forward to Tonight at 9pm

"And noose conference, and President is bellowing
and drooling, and his advisers say, he has
interesting new program, and CBS says, the
President drooled tonight, and we have five
analysts here to talk about his interesting new
program and also perhaps about is he drooling
less than last time? And New York Times prints
a transcript of noose conference, is all
drool drool bellow bellow, also one coherent
sentence, and on page one they print the one
coherent sentence!"

    I was counting his screw ups during the speech. I had 6 total, 4 in the first minute.......W is quite the cunning linguist.

    yes, but did he drool or bellow?

    And who is this John Roberts fellow anyway? A friend said he was rabidly anti Roe v. Wade, but that's all I know.

    They tricked us! We thought it was an Edith. And I'm way to intoxicated to look him up and see what the other kids are saying.

    yes they did trick us. I made the horrible mistake of watching a few minutes of Tucker "bow tie" Carlson earlier, and he posited that it was an intentional head fake to throw the media off.

    As for who Roberts is, I said a little more about him in my post speech post, but suffice it to say that he is anti Roe. Apparently, he had a client a few years back in an abortion case, and argued in front of the SC that Roe was wrongly decided. He says that he was advocating for a client, not for his own beliefs. My take.....a lawyer as well respected as Roberts doesnt touch that case unless he agrees with the position.....its too much of a hot button issue to hang your name on the side of a cause you dont agree with.
