Help Jack Off The T.V.

In the world of those lower budget franchise sort of chain restaurants, Jack In The Box is a long time also ran competitor to the McDonalds brand. Whereas it’s usually thought of as just being a cheap alternative to the home of the Big Mac, it sells food that can at best be described as “At least it probably won’t make you get sick”.

But there was one area where Jack has long ruled over Mickey D’s, and it’s in the world of t.v. commercials with their big headed clown spokesperson being erudite, brilliant, funny and always worth a pause to watch, if for nothing else but to catch those slight character nudges they snuck in with the change of a few small parts of the clowns facial features when there was an angle change.

Until today that is.

Yesterday, I just watched in awe as this brand did what amounts to a fatal crash and burn with the birth of, and I’m being as charitable as possible, a cheap and ugly piece of crap puppet with remote control rods for the arms visible. 

Could this mean that it’s time to bring back the Hamburglar?

The Republicans Bend A Little?

Some Good News and Bad News arrived today!

The good news?

The republicans have offered to increase the debt limit.

Strangely enough, their offer will only be good until November 22nd.

And the bad news?

They want Obama to fly to Dallas to be in a special parade on that date.

There will be a convertible to take him to the site to do the paperwork.

It’s The “Negro”, Stupid

As for the subject line which is a rephrasing of one of Bill Clinton’s presidential campaigns, Republicans, please feel free to substitute the “N” word of your choice, you know, that one you use while you’re talking among your friends once you’ve made sure that there are no recording devices around.

For the rest of those of you in America that might think all of the political bullshit going on has anything to do with the economy, like Obamacare, government spending, taxes, etc…., well, read the subject line and think again.

Think instead of Mitch McConnell (R-Ky-Jelly), that paragon of “right” thinking who made it his stated goal to make Barack Obama a one term president.

A brief reminder, as if we need one

O.k, so it was an epic fail on that one.

However, the rest of the party of regression, including the Tea Party part that travels to Congress on a short yellow bus, never got the word and have taken up McConnell’s jihad in their attempt to not allow anything Obama does to go unchallenged.

Think about all of that as our country circles the bowl, and remember who to thank in the 2014 elections….
