21-14

Yes, I know the world is going to hell in a jet-propelled hand basket. Sanity is difficult to find. Politicians are all over the map on what to do about the war. Bush appeared on TV in a Vietnamese gown and I found that funny as hell for so many reasons. He finally goes to Vietnam and he puts on a dress. Make up your own joke on that one.

There was one highlight this weekend. My Dallas Cowboys blew out the candles on the Indianapolis’ Colts’ perfect season. I can’t get this smile off my face. I’m nowhere near smug about the Thanksgiving day game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Cowboys, but I have a better feeling about it now. I’m not as afraid as I was of being the real turkey at Mr. Pop’s, Buccaneers fans family holiday dinner, in Tampa..

PoP...I saw the game....I was rootin' for the Cowboys...so I was happy too!
That new quarterback is soooo much better than Bledsoe...once Brady took over for the Patriots, there was no going back...looks like Drew is out of a job again....

BTW, I'll be rootin' for the Cowboys on TurkeyDay.... I've always had a soft spot for the Tuna....

I still remember the Cowboys calling themselves God's Team and they knew that God was watching through the opening in the ceiling. Don't know about that, but I do know that Bush is God's little cross-dresser with hormone treatment starting soon.

POP,

For a real twist on the war protest, you just have to see my latest post! This is the type of protest that everyone can get into! I just can't wait, to see what others think about this. This might just get the fundies' heads to expload!

I dunno, maybe it's me, but wasn't Bush supposed to go to Nam back when there was a war on? Oh, right, that's when he went AWOL from the National Guard. WTF is wrong with this man?

As for football - The Bears won again. THAT is football, POP. Chicago Bears play real football on real grass in really cold weather. I'm just saying.

I don't watch football, I think it is a stupid game where guys beat guys up and make tons of money doing it. But whatever.

I think they dressed Bush that way just to have some fun with the fool.

How 'bout them Cowboys!!!!
And as for the dress, well, I think YELLOW would have been a much better color on Dubya. It would have brought out that glow in his complexion.

Colt killers!

Mrs. Pop's team has just pulled down the statue of the EVIL Colts.

She could care less about the innocent fans of the Colts.

Quotes from Mrs. Pop on turkey day??

"Your either with the Cowboys, or against the Cowboys."

"Cowboys will take those Bucs, dead or alive."

"The Cowboys will stay the course, we WILL win."

"The Cowboys did not torture the Colts, we just did what we had to, to win."

"The Cowboys are AMERICAS team, if you disagree you are unpatriotic, traitors."

"Mission Accomplished!"

Mrs. Pop's Cowboy's defeat of the evil Colts, has left Mrs. Pop's ego, unchecked.

Mrs. Pop's approval ratings with her in-laws, is in the teens.

The family has voted for the Bucs, now let the fight begin.

Will there be bi-partisanship in the family livingroom, HELL NO!!


Couldn't resist, have a nice Thanksgiving!

I'm conflicted about the new calls for the draft. I don't like the draft, I don't think it's right, and yet if those in power had to wonder if their kids would be forced to go...

Yet even when they did have the draft, people like 'W always had a cushy way out.

Pols who want wars, who want to prance around an aircraft carrier being the Commander in Chief, should have to go there like Caesar did, and participate in the winning of the thing. Prove themselves capable of being the Commander in Chief before they get the job.

What is it with Bush and playing dress-up?

I guess I'm really unAmerican because I don't like football. I follow what the rest of the world calls football -- you know, the game where you actually use your feet to kick the ball. We Yanks call it soccer.

Have fun in Tampa, POP. Stay away from the turducken if that's what they're serving. You don't want to catch bird flu.

I actually own one of those Ao Dai gowns. It was a gift from some ARVN soldiers. Seeing Bush in one made me as ill as seeing him pretend to wear a uniform.

Dang,
I missed the pic of Bush in his gown. I will google it now. I did however channel the conversation he and Laura had with God in a church in Hanoi while speed-touring a country of great richness and history.

Football...bleh! THey don't have any players that look as good as Andre Agassi...so it's a no go for me.

Dub in a dress...yeah I saw it...haven't stopped gagging just yet. And Putin! He kept his face covered up...I guess he has macho issues afterall. Either that or he was laughing so hard he might have pissed his unders and was hiding a red face. Naw...that red face would have been all the Vodka he consumes. I agree that yellow does suit Dubster better with that stripe down his back.

W. in Nam... finally. I suppose we can expect to see Jenna and not-Jenna in Iraq in 35 years - if there's an Iraq left to visit.

Re George and Laura's garb, Dependable Renegade always gets it right.

Re the Cowboy/Bucs game, what time is kickoff? We could be sitting down in front of three turkeys for dinner. :-)

I'm going to my football hating brother's house now for Thanksgiving. He'll blow a gasket if anyone dare suggest a television set be turned on. But I managed to watch the Lions lose yesterday, so I don't have to see it again on Thursday.

I like that look for Bush. As long as the arms of that thing tie together in the back. . .

Maybe it's just me...but it looks like bushy-boy should be manicuring somebody's nails in that get-up.

GO COWBOYS!!!!! Not that I care about football... :)

Say, you don't suppose that Texas Cowboy had a sexchange operation over there, do you? Gosh, you may have to change your football team's name to the Dallas Cowgirls! And then they could play the Washington Moisturizedskins!

I don't usually root for the Cowboys, but I wanted someone to end the Colts' perfect season. I'm an old enough Floridian to remember the days when the Dolphins were the state's only team, and the only team in history to have a perfect season.

As for Thanksgiving, who knows. The Bucs' rookie QB looked pretty good on Sunday, and they finally got Cadillac in the game. Could be interesting!

I was just about to jump on the Colt bandwagon. Maybe next week.

The fish haven't been fried yet either.

the Cows game has been moved to 3:30pm on Thursday. Look for Jessica Simpson to be sitting in the stands somewhere rooting for her man Tony Romo.
