Tidbits

Hillary steps on her whang again:

Maybe Hillary Clinton should have picked up a guidebook prior to her trip to Mexico. Last week the secretary of state visited the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. It is the second most popular Catholic shrine in the world. Catholics believe the image of the Virgin Mary was miraculously imprinted on a peasant's cloak 500 years ago. Clinton was apparently unaware of the legend. The Catholic News Agency reports that after being shown the famous image, Secretary Clinton asked, "Who painted it?" The rector of the Basilica responded, "God!"

And as she left the church, Clinton told some waiting outside, "You have a marvelous virgin!" Spokesmen for Clinton did not respond to requests for comment.


This is the Secretary of State who was supposed to demonstrate how swah-vay and dee-boner 'Merkins really are. Can you imagine an overseas trip by Hillary and Joltin' Joe Biden, together?

Obama breaks it again:

Remember the campaign promise He made, about posting non-emergency bills for at least five days, for public review? He did it again with the omnibus land conservation bill. "Giggles" Gibbs weighs in:

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs addressed the shortened time saying: "Although not perfect, I think the president has made a greater step forward in transparency and feels like we're making progress on ensuring that the American people can see and read what their president is going to sign into law."

Of the nine bills President Obama has signed, six of them have not been posted the full five days. Officials say some of those bills were emergency legislation and therefore do not qualify for the five day minimum posting. And adding another excuse, White House officials said — in the most recent case — the President is leaving for Europe Tuesday.


And of course, no day would be complete without an update on GM (Government Motors). Here is the new GM logo, from Doug Powers:

Wanna deal?

Kinda like those "Dealin' Doug" Moreland commercials, don't you think?
