It's amazing that all of a sudden, Barack Obama-Lama-Ding-Dong, has attempted to distance himself from Jeremiah Wright. In fact, Wright nailed it on the head, when he inferred that Obama's first reaction to Wright's original remarks and videos of his hateful and damning sermon, was political posturing. Obama was attempting to keep the black vote while attempting to appease and gain the white vote. Obama didn't attempt to cut his ties with him until he realized that the public reaction to Wright's latest remarks was torpedoing his candidacy.
Although Jeremiah Wright is an obvious jerk and a former CAT Award winner, he has done the nation a service in shedding a true light on Obama's hidden agenda, that being, say what the people want to hear. Obama is simply cutting his losses and should have cut his ties with the likes of Jeremiah Wright a long time ago. But he didn't ! Imagine, if you will, Rev Jeremiah Wright being the spiritual advisor and mentor to the president of the United States.
Miley Cyrus, aka Hannah Montana, is the 15 year old daughter of country singer, Bill Ray Cyrus. She recently posed for pictures with her father for Vanity Fair magazine. There has been quite a reaction to these photographs and Miley Cyprus has apologized for the pictures calling them embarrassing. It seems to me both Miley and her father knew well how the pictures looked as they had handlers and advisors all over the set during the shoot. Their apologies came after a poor public reaction.
One of the funniest reactions came from Howard Stern, the low life scum bag whose television show always featured half-naked women. Stern called Billy Ray Cyrus an opportunist and called the father-daughter photograph "weird." Talk about the pot calling the kettle black ! Here's the pic, judge for yourselves.
The Pictures: Today's photographs are a mix of many single theme pictures that I've discovered in my travels on the Internet. Although a bit eclectic, I think you'll enjoy them.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
This bartender is in a bar, when this really hot girl walks up and says in a sexy seductive voice, "May I please speak to your manager?" He says, "Not right now, is there anything I can help you with?" She replies, "I don't know if your the man to talk to...its kind of personal..."
Thinking he might get lucky, he says, "I'm pretty sure I can handle your problem, miss." She then looks at him with a smile, puts two of her fingers in his mouth and he begins thinking, "I'm in!!!" She says, "Can you give the manager something for me?" The bartender nods yes. "Tell him there's no toilet paper in the ladies restroom."
A guy walks into a bar with his pet monkey. He orders a drink and while he's drinking, the monkey starts jumping all over the place. The monkey grabs some olives off the bar and eats them, then grabs some sliced limes and eats them,then jumps up on the pool table, grabs the cue ball, sticks it in his mouth and swallows it whole.
The bartender screams at the guy, "Did you see what your monkey just did?" The guy says, "No, what?" The bartenders says, "He just ate the cue ball off my pool table - whole!" The guy says, "Yeah, that doesn't surprise me, he eats everything in sight. I'll pay for the cue ball and stuff." He finishes his drink, pays his bill, and leaves.
Two weeks later he's in the bar again, and he has his monkey with him. He orders a drink and the monkey starts running around the bar again.
While the man is drinking, the monkey finds a maraschino cherry on the bar. He grabs it, sticks it up his butt, pulls it out, and then eats it. The bartender is disgusted. "Did you see what your monkey did now?" The man says, "Now what?" The bartender says, "Well, he stuck a maraschino cherry up his butt, then pulled it out and ate it!"
The guy says, "Yeah, that doesn't surprise me. He still eats everything in sight, but ever since he ate that damn cue ball he measures everything first!"
That's it for today my little Pez dispensers. More tomorrow.
