Oh, what a week it's been! From Moral Monday and the Massive Extravaganza to rolling back voter laws the open doors to racisms return (though there's a part of me that thinks the SCOTUS did it just to take heat off of Paula Deen - who herself is being dropped left and right by companies who used to love her) to SCOTUS then striking down DOMA and giving the nation a big sloppy gay kiss. Wedged in there was Obama talking about talking tough about the environment and energy and the George Zimmerman trial circus rolled to town and tv everywhere, with knock, knock jokes as opening statements and a "star" witness, who - forgive me - is coming off like the special needs girl working the fryolator at a McDonalds.
Thanks to the Zimmerman trial's star witness, we have seen media coverage that is struggling mightily not to comment on Rachel Jeantel's mush-mouthed, droopy-eyed, semi-mentally handicapped sounding delivery, and avoid what we're all thinking, but too afraid to mention (well, except just now, by me). And now we have such quotable jewels coming out of testimony as: "Hey mister, why you followin' me for?" and "creepy ass cracker."
Of course, Eddie Snowden is still out there making news as best he can, duping a plane load of media to fly to Cuba, while he stayed behind. Sending messages and postcard marked "From Russia With Love." Putin is harboring him, sneering back at the G's 1 thru 7 for giving him crap about Syria. And Putin is now enbroiled in a scandal concerning the New England Patriots Superbowl ring that Bob Craft (team owner) is now saying Putin stole from him.
It is almost too much for early summer. I mean come on, let's spread out some of the earth-shattering headline-grabbing stuff.
And it's only Thursday!
HOw do you end a week like this?
Oh, in case you haven't heard chuckle nut tele-Evangelical shill man, Pat Robertson has come out saying that the DOMA and Prop8 rulings will cause God to unleash a new age Sodom and Gamora type smack down.
Let me check out my window...
Nope. No rain of fire, no sword-wielding Angels of death and no pillars of salt to be seen. Maybe God's trying to tell Pat something.
