Too Little, Too Late

After setback, BP vows to 'redouble' efforts (


In other words, for five weeks, they were doing only half as much as they could have been doing to stop the oil leak?

Politics has its ups and its downs,
Its pats on the back and its frowns,
Loyalty is shortlived,
Easily negatived,
On winners you eagerly pounce!

A message to poetry man:
Please stick to the rules, if you can.
Your limerick wobbles,
So count your syllables
Or else it'll rhyme, but not scan.

Rand Paul's Macaca Moment?

(AP) "I like the Civil Rights Act in the sense that it ended discrimination in all public domains, and I'm all in favor of that," he said. "I don't like the idea of teling private business owners -- I abhor racism ... I do believe in private ownership."


He'd have no house, no food, no clothes, no phone, and no car if private business owners refused to sell to ophthamologists.

There is no N-A-Z-I in A-M-E-R-I-C-A, but there is in A-R-I-Z-O-N-A

Let's take the word Nazi out of Arizona. We'll need to rename the state.

Too bad "New Mexico" is already taken.

It's Not Easy Being Green

I feel no sympathy for women who complain that they have to kiss a lot of frogs before they find their prince. My sympathy is with the frogs. They are being used.

Barack, We Hardly Knew Ye

Obama Seeks CEO Advice on Economy at White House

By Roger Runningen, in

May 3 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama is soliciting the views of corporate leaders including JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon and Caterpillar Inc. CEO James Owens on the economy and financial regulation at a White House dinner.


The farmer is soliciting the views of foxes on how to run the hen house. I can't believe I made over 4,000 phone calls to help get this man elected.
Funny As Cancer


At Saturday's White House Correspondents' Association Dinner in Washington, D.C., President Obama cracked up the star-studded crowd with a few pop-culture digs.

Obama declared a warning to the Jonas Brothers, who attended the affair. "Sasha and Malia are huge fans but, boys, don't be getting any ideas. I have two words for you: predator drones."


And I have two words for you, Mr. President, and they aren't Happy Birthday.

Memento Mori

Time moves on.
It always does.
And soon we go
from is to was.

The irony of Tiger Woods finishing in 140th place in a tournament called Quail Hollow is delicious.
