2008 Suck..or Not?

Did 2008 Suck..or Not?

Here’s some of why…and not.

Cubs lost chance to win first World’s Series in 100 years.
…but Chicago (and the World) got an Obama Victory.

Obama picked Hillary Clinton to be his SOS
..but at least Bill won’t be sniffing for interns in the White House.

Gasoline prices soared to over $4 per gal.
…but, Americans drove less (and other factors) and gas dropped to under $2/gal.

John McCain booty-called Sarah Palin to be his runnin’ mate..thus putting his country second and risking America’s integrity, prestige, safety and security.
…but, Palin wasted no time exposing herself as a winkin’ u-betcha-ing comical idiot who could see Russia from her front porch, had a Kenyan witchdoctor cast out her witchiness in her church; spent over $200,000 of McCain’s campaign contributors’ funds on designer fashions for her, hubby and kids. (see Palin’s secret emails in my blog post of Sept. 18, 2008.

Bush (remember him?) lame-ducks and pet-goats his way thru his last year in office.
…but, he re-invigorated the shoe industry throughout the Middle East by deftly ducking a couple of fast shoes in Iraq. Bush may have surprised many with his ducking skills, but here is a man with a lot of practice ducking. He’s been ducking most of his life. Some examples: ducked military service in Viet Nam,; went AWOL from National Guard; ducked a drug test to disprove drug use; ducked paying attention to a national briefing titled “Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States” which led to the worst terrorist attack ever on U.S. soil; ducked responsibility for failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq; ducked quick action to rescue victims of hurricane Katrina…didn’t want to duck his vacation. Sheeet, this sorry ducking list too long……..

Another year without capturing Bin Laden
…but, YouTube video of puppies captures America’s heart (see Prajek’s blog post of Nov. 30, 2008.)

Financial collapse of America.
…but, McDonald’s still has the $1 double cheeseburger (less one slice of cheese.)

  1. FYI. IN ORDER TO RECIEVE THE 99 CENT D BURGER AT MAC’S LOUNGE, YOU MUST ASK FOR FOR THE MCDOUBLE. OTHERWISE YOU WILL PAY 1.20 AND GET THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF CHEESE. WOW
