Giving Thanks

My friend, Bonnie, sent this to me in email and I thought it would make a nice Thanksgiving Day blog entry:

An old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Ave. where he’d been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the US Marine standing guard and said, “I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.”

The Marine looked at the man and said, “Sir, Mr. Bush is no longer President and no longer resides here.”

The old man said, “Okay”, and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, “I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.”

The Marine again told the man, “Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Bush is no longer President and no longer resides here.”

The man thanked him and walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House . The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, “Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Bush. I’ve told you already that Mr. Bush is no longer the President and no longer resides here. Don’t you understand?”

The old man looked at the Marine and said, “Oh, I understand, I just love hearing it.”

The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, “See you tomorrow, Sir.”

The turkey is out of the White House. Now that’s something to be thankful for!

Happy gobbling!

In one particular clip (it’s quite old, but the issue is not) they’re talking about Condi Rice:

Before I begin, I want to say that I refuse to dignify Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s comments by addressing them here (she’s the blonde at the far right). I will say, however, that someone should stuff a sock in her mouth and then wrap her entire head in duct tape, because that would be less embarrassing for her than being allowed to speak in public. She is ignorant and uniformed, and her position on The View is a poor reflection on Barbara Walters, in my opinion.

With that out of the way, I would now like to address Barbara’s comment regarding bigotry:
