  1. Obama Gives Hanukkah Wishes in Hebrew; Birthers Now Claim He Was Born in Israel

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – President Barack Obama’s decision to wish Jews around the world a happy Hanukkah in Hebrew has added more fuel to the movement of the so-called Birthers, who now claim that Mr. Obama was born in Israel.

    Orly Taitz, a leading Birther spokesperson, told CNN today that she had in her possession a birth certificate for Mr. Obama that was issued in Tel Aviv.

    “If you look at the birth certificate, you will see the name he was born with, Baruch Obama,” she said.

    Hee hee heeeeeeee, Fnord!

    I also liked your quotation about life being a bitch and then it has puppies.

    And the puppies obviously have a mean ol’ pitbull daddy.

    With apologies to pit bulls everywhere.

    Pray for me, to the god of your choice – I am about to embark on a journey to Best Buy – on a Saturday less than two weeks before Christmas.

    This may be painful – angry, irritable people, full of the worst of the holiday season, throwing elbows and hip checks at anyone in their path.

    And those are just the store clerks.

    The customers are much worse, most often resembling buzzards gathered at a roadkill.

    I will report back later, if I survive the carnage.

    Wish me luck.

    • If anyone should ever be silly enough to intimate you’re a coward I’ll remind them you went to Best Buy on a Saturday less than two weeks before Christmas! That’s brave (and probably stupid too but I’ll leave that part out when I’m defending you).

    • Hip checks, eh? Biker does this mean you are a hockey fan?

    • Zippy

      Two weeks? It’s gotten that insane? I thought the economy was sour.

      But then, I survived Towne Beast on December 24th (the horror!), so perhaps I’m a tad jaded.

    Ahh it was one of those nights, I laid in bed and could not get comfortable or asleep.
    Finally getting up at 2 A.M. to set smoking and flipping channels till the only thought was you need to go to sleep or plain on tomorrow as nothing but sleeping.

    I hate it when I can not get my mind to shut off, the thoughts range wide and to things that I can not change or are not important enough to put forth the effort to. I have said it before I think too much!

    • I have had that trouble in my life. Self hypnosis tapes taught me how to relax myself and meditate so that I could clear my head.

      It might sound all new-agey, but it does work for me, when nothing else would.

    • Funny — natural childbirth classes almost 45 years ago helped me learn to relax. 🙂 I still can use the same techniques, but have to concentrate harder.

      I can also employ those techniques on others. My youngest son was in a car accident many years ago, hurt badly and the pain continued for a few weeks. I could speak quietly to him and if he followed my suggestions he could get relief. He calls it “Mom’s voodoo.”

    If you were going to spend that much time in a car. Better use would have been to drive to the hospital!
