Tidbits and Cat Treats — Romney-Wins-More-Primaries-and-Who-Cares Edition
We cats can't find anyone who's excited about tonight's Republican primary results. So between that and the fact that we're spending the week in the True North Strong and Free — and thus are diverted by amusements outside the American political world — there's nothing left for us to do but fall back on a grab bag of feline observations. Here goes.
The USDA has found a case of mad cow disease in California. Note to government-hating teabaggers: If you condemn Democrats for their horrid regulations and trust the private sector to keep you safe and healthy, you might want to change your mind and thank the Department of Agriculture the next time you eat a hamburger.
Gee, this John Edwards trial is embarrassing. (For John Edwards.) The guy has turned out to be a first-rate jerk, and that's saying a lot coming from felines who ardently defended Bill Clinton. (Is this a cosmic lesson in how much worse the Lewinsky affair could have been?) But we have to say that all this garment rending over Bunny Mellon's financial support seems quaint in the wake of Citizens United.
The Republicans are really starting to bore us with their over-the-top language about President Obama, not to mention their out-and-out lies. The President's economic policies have not "made things worse." On the contrary, it is generally agreed that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act prevented a second Great Depression.
Finally, this person named "Steve Doocy" is an idiot. He didn't "seem to misquote the President." He made up an imaginary quote, not just out of whole cloth but also out of a complete disrespect for the current occupant of the Oval Office. To this FOX fool and to everyone else who's still exercised over Barack Obama's election, we cats say: Get over it.
