Play Ball..!

Stephen Colbert and newly elected Rep. John Hall sing a two part harmony of our national anthem...goosebumps...or as they say in Hawaii "chicken skin."

Colbert continually finds ways to elicit belly laughs from me, this episode being one of them. There are too many to list but the duet with Barely Manenuff (Manilow) and kisses from Jane Fonda come in second and third respectively. Colbert rules.

I tell my litle girls a man that can make you laugh is the best...

And as for the National Anthem, I occasionally get goosebumps when I hear it, in small town parades in the middle of nowhere with bagpipes ringing in the background, like where I live, and the last time I heard it like that was in July and I cried.

I whispered and whispered a plea to get our country back.

And I got the goosebumps again in a great way, because the people all said the same thing, I can obviously presume... we all wanted our country back!

America is awesome and yes, "Colbert rules"!

Good Morning JB's

They were really good! I had no idea Colbert could sing-harmony at that. That takes talent, take it from this former choir girl and band geek;-)

Agreed Maureen, what a smart thing to tell your daughters.

Have a great day all, I'm off to the nations capital...

Steve Clemons (yes, I'll take a little of that credit, Mr. Clemons)

On his death bed in AD211, Roman emperor Septimius Severus warned his successor and future emperors: "Keep the soldiers happy." Rumsfeld, Cheney and Bush not only did not keep the soldiers in body armour and out of reckless escapades, but the soldiers on active duty in the military as well as the National Guard reserves - and their families and neighbours and retired veterans - may in fact have helped breathe new life into America's diminished and now revived system of checks and balances in government.

The military and the people may have just restored the republic.

We will not have our country back until all lobbyists, PACs, and think tanks are driven out of our business and their personal agendas.

The lies and cover-ups must be revealed in this country or it is the same old, same old. Our troops have died for lies long enough.

Oh My...Goose bumps for sure!

Good Morning Justice Bloggers & Fitzie!

What wonderful sentiments maureen & e on the earlier thread. I also felt the angst, anger and frustration during the past six years...I've never been so worried about our country's safety and our freedoms...and many a day I felt alone because my anger and passion seemed over-the-top to the mainstream so I thought...

That is what brought me to was simply for therapy and to keep me from negativity...but what I found in blogging where kindred spirits...I was not alone...hallelujah!!! It was an epiphany...

I have thanked Fitzie before for this blog because it felt like home very early on when I started reading, but not yet, I thank my fellow bloggers because it was you who held me up when reality seemed to be slapping me in the face...

So today I have a big smile on my face, Jackie & JBs!

We are slowly taking our ocuntry back!!!

Go Team Fitzie!

I'm so sorry but Toto has been impounded for biting Glenda one too many times.

Also your chances of seeing the Wizard are nil as we have new strict immigration laws here now in Oz.

It was good to see the reaction from around the world as our election results came in. Cheers that Rummy is gone and Cheers that Bush got smacked down. America won Nov. 7th. The journalist who got paid by the GOP will have to suck up to the new power are leave. Chris Matthews must be still crying as O'Reilly has gone mad and insane.
Bush/Cheney/Rummy once the might Oak Tree now just a nut.

Ooops, I posted this on the wrong thread...

Toto was last seen trying to sniff out the truth and looking for that justice bone. He was sporting a nice new handsome blue sweater though.

Toto thinks all the "Wizard's" tricks should be revealed to people and animals everywhere.

Tin man, you are all heart. :(

Teak sorry but I just tell it like it is.

All the trouble started when Diana Ross and Michael Jackson moved here and those right wing racist Munchkins over reacted.

Good morning, Justice Bloggers! Still smiling here in Vermont as well.

And yes, thanks for this forum (it will always have a special place in my heart because my kid introduced me to it and some of the great folks here).

Thought some of you may not have seen Marjorie Cohn's "Donald Rumsfeld: The War Crimes Case" op-ed posted in the JURIST forum:

Cohn on War Crimes

There are some other interesting opinion pieces on that site if you haven't checked lately.

Alright, and while I'm here, I can't resist including a direct link to Vermont's very own Howard Dean on Jon Stewart the other night:

Dean on Daily Show 11-11-06

And lastly, cuz I'm feeling great about WOMEN in leadership positions for a change, check out new WHO chief Margaret Chan's priorities:

People's Daily Online on Chan at WHO

Have a great day/night everyone!

I love showing friends that clip of McKinney when they assume she is a nutbag...
This isn't the Cynthia the news had told them of.

When somebody who really believes in liberty and justice sings that song it sounds much sweeter and takes on a different meaning than when the chickenhawks sing it....

We still have to keep the Dems feet to the fire in regard to selling America out to K street Lobbiest.
We cannot go back to business as usual. CANNOT.
We have to take our country and government back, we cannot have our government a wholly owned subsidiary of corporate America. They make the wrong choices, always. We are going to have to insist on it.

It's going to be nice to know we have a Congressman who knows the entire first verse of the National Anthem.

Now we need one who can name all 10 Commandments.
