A Time to Stand

Friday, November 20, 2009 \PM\.\Fri\.

Today Christians, Catholic, Evangelical and Orthodox,  came together in the Manhattan Declaration to put the Obama administration and the Congress on notice:

“. . .

Mute Obama

Friday, November 20, 2009 \AM\.\Fri\.

From the only reliable source of news on the net, the Onion.  Actually, I can think of certain domestic situations where a teleprompter could come in handy.  Son learning to drive hits a tree.  I turn to the teleprompter and read through gritted teeth:  “Don’t worry.  I’m not mad.  We just have to clarify the functions of the gas pedal and the brake.   We will laugh about this in years to come!”   I have a kidney stone.  I turn to the teleprompter and read through yelps of pain:  “Oh my, I am having another kidney stone!  Gee that smarts!  Well it should resolve itself in three or four days!  Please ignore any screams I may make in the meantime!”  Dog has an accident:  “Another accident!  I will just clean this up, and then we can go for another walk!  We will get you house trained yet, you good Dog!”  On second thought I think I will forgo the teleprompter.
