The LuLac Edition #2389, April 5th, 2013

Our “Maybe I’m Amazed” logo. 


MAYBE I’M AMAZED……..that there is such consternation about the remark President Obama made about the California Attorney General’s looks. The AG, Kamala Harris was getting introduced by the President who said she was one of the best looking Attorney Generals in the country. I’m surprised that the famously reserved Obama would make such a statement. Personally I think Joe Biden is too much of a bad influence on him. (The Vice President has a tendency to shoot his mouth off and have people shrug their shoulders and just say, “That’s Joe”). Mr. Obama does not have that luxury. He called the AG and apologized but will be getting heat from this from all sides because it was so unObama like. In the meantime, if the President comes to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and introduces Kathleen Kane, look for the old teleprompter to be revved up big time.

MAYBE I’M AMAZED………that Jay Leno relinquished “The Tonight Show” after 22 seasons of being the top rated late night talk show. Leno succeeded Johnny Carson and kept NBC on top. To me, he is a vastly underrated cog in the Tonight Show lineage. Between Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, they combined for 51 years of top ratings. And consider this, since The Tonight Show aired, there have only been 6 permanent hosts. Steve Allen, Jack Paar, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien and now Jimmy Fallon. And then consider this, in that time span, there have been 18 U.S. Secretaries of State, 15 Today Show anchors, 11 U.S. Presidents and 7 Popes. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……….that Buzz Aldrin was the second man to walk on the moon. How’s this for cosmic synergy, Aldrin’s mother’s maiden name was “Moon”. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……..that a Wilkes Barre man charged with sexually assaulting a 15 year old girl is using a unique defense. He says his interaction with the minor was really a series of courses of sexual education. That is a new one I’m sure a Luzerne County Judge is willing to hear. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that after a very good debut of the new Stadium at PNC Field, many fans had complaints about the parking and traffic situation before the game. Apparently, parking was at a premium and not plentiful. Watching the 11 O’Clock News after the game, you’d think everything was nirvana but apparently not so. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….that WNEP TV covered the game right at 7PM but did not air any of the pre game ceremonies like Hall Of Famer Reggie Jackson throwing out the first pitch. Wish they had covered that aspect of the game. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED………that the human skull, even the numb ones have 29 different bones. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED………that my former favorite Federal Employee of all time, Monica Lewinsky’s lawyer, Arthur Ginsburg died the other day at the age of 70. Ginsburg was hired by her family after she confided her “mentorship” with President Clinton to the very bitter and mean Linda Tripp. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED………that one of the early lead singers of The Spinners, Bobbie Smith died recently at the age of 76. Smith died from complications of lung cancer. The Spinners had mega hits in the 70s. Here’s one of them.  
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……..that I’m actually feeling sorry for the awful start the New York Yankees have had. I’m watching and listening to the games and the Bronx Bombers are pathetic. Look for any Rail Rider showing any sign of life to be shipped north ASAP. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED………..but pleased that “MadMen” returns this Sunday night. It is the next to the last season for Don Draper and the ad gang. I believe they are going to be living in the year 1967 and the plot will center around Korean War Veteran Don Draper getting out of touch with the turbulent 1960s. The 2 hour season premiere starts at 8PM on AMC.

The President does not have to worry, democrats always get a pass for staying or acting sexist or misogynistic.
Bill Clinton moistens his cigars, puts a woman up against a wall, exposes his penis to a state worker... It is all good he is a dem.
Ted Kennedy, cheats on his wives, treats women like sex toys and leaves a woman to die.. It is all good he is a dem.
Barack Obama diminishes the accomplishment of a driven, intelligent successful woman by putting her looks first... It is okay he is a dem.
John Edwards cheats on his dying wife, fathers a child with another woman.. It is okay he is a dem.
Old Newt Gingrich cheats on his wife, serves her divorce papers while in hospital bed.. O wait that isn't okay he isn't a dem.
One day women's groups will come to realize that they are simply being used, and paid lip service to by these dems, who want to keep them under them, so they can maintain power --- when in fact they have little regard for them as people.
