Separated At Birth – Selma Bouvier/Debbie Wasserman-Schultz

Selma Bouvier:  Selma Bouvier is the raspy-voiced character on the long-running Simpsons animated television series.  Selma suffered and unfortunate bottle rocket accident and lost both her sense of taste and smell.  Selma’s favorite film actor was reportedly Troy McClure, to whom she was briefly married before discovering it was just a publicity stunt by McClure.  She was willing to live a sham for a while, but broke it off when she realized she couldn’t bring a child into a loveless marriage.  Selma inherited her deceased aunt’s iguana, Jub-Jub, instead of her mother, Jacqueline, due to Jacqueline’s apparent dislike of Jub-Jub.  Unlike her sister, Patty, Selma has shown brief moments of sympathy for Homer, primarily due to his unwavering loyalty to his family.  However, these instances are still very few and far between.  The Simpson’s creators fortunately only use her character infrequently so she doesn’t get on our nerves.  BTW what’s up with the hair?

Brief 1“The King is gone but he’s not forgotten.   This is a story about Johnny Rotten.   It’s better to burn out, cause rust never sleeps.  The King is gone but he’s not forgotten.”  Sometimes the left is so out in left field and it is fun to watch them try to “eat” one of their own only to have it thrown back in their face.  Famed Sex Pistols front-man, Johnny Rotten apparently was criticized for planning a concert in of all places, Israel.  It is very posh to be anti-Jewish and Pro-Palestinian on the left, but Mr. Rotten would have none of it;

New Briefs – Volume X (Obama Unplugged)

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories…

This session is all about our Organizer-In-Chief:

Brief 1:  Dorothy Rabinowitz wrote an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal yesterday peering into the inner workings of Obama’s mind.  Rabinowitz describes him as “the alien in the White House” since he is more in tune with his ideology than average Americans.  As President of the United States he is, perhaps, the leader of the free world and he seems to gravitate to that role yet forgetting that his is our President first.
