In the New Yorker this week,  William Sorensen wrote an article titled “Text Slang for Baby Boomers“.  Gail (thank you dear friend and blog supporter) sent it to me just in time for my Thursday’s Top Ten.  Being a Baby Boomer myself and a “texter” I was anxious to read it.  So if you receive a text from me with some NEW text abbreviations, you might refer to this list.  Here are my top ten picks:

  1. WWIS – What was I saying?
  2. IV-NV – My kid is going to a big name college, neighbors are jealous.
  3. 3dickPM – Read three detective novels this afternoon.
  4. WILMA – Lost my keys
  5. X2EZ – crossword puzzle too easy
  6. 80/20 -wife doing more and more of the talking.
  7. NPR – sleep aid, no prescription required
  8. TN2WMP – Trying not to wet my pants.
  9. PNP – peeing in pants
  10. {——-} – another funeral today, can’t play poker, bridge/Scrabble

    oh my god, laugh out loud, talk to you later

Official photo of Congresswoman Michele Bachma...

Michele Bachmann


Did you think I had abandoned this subject?  Seems so, I know, but I think it’s just that the flux of conspiracy theories had subsided somewhat.  But not for long…. Michele Bachmann, the erudite congresswoman from Minnesota came up with a doozy in June.  I have been remiss by not bringing this up sooner, sorry about that!

Maybe my timing is perfect, now that for at least the moment, the country isn’t going bankrupt.  No thanks to the Tea Party Republicans, that lunatic fringe group which has engulfed the Republican party.

Michele, a wannabe candidate for the Presidency (oh my dear God!) delivered the following diatribe accusing President Obama of secretly wishing Medicare would go bankrupt because then retirees would be forced to choose Obamacare.

“This hasn’t been talked about very much – the president’s plan for senior citizens is Obamacare,” Ms. Bachmann told party activists here. She added, “I think very likely what the president intends is that Medicare will go broke and ultimately that answer will be Obamacare for senior citizens.”

Are you f_____g kidding me?  I thought Sarah was one of the dumbest women ever to speak in public, shame on the Republicans for allowing her to make a mockery of a campaign for the Vice-Presidency AND now this idiot – HOW did she ever get elected???  You know the old adage, “if you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything”?  Well Michele should take this to heart and insert the word intelligent for nice.  With that montra, she would’t be able to speak for quite some time. Amen to that!

Steve Benen of the Washington Monthly said the following about Bachmann: “Bachmann’s principal problem is that she combines the worst of two important traits: she’s strikingly ignorant about public policy and she’s paranoid to the point of delusion.”

I literally can’t write anymore about her, she is an affront to my intelligence and that of my readers.
