smock's spin on the first 100


smock says, "days 12, 34 and 57 weren't too bad. other than that, nope. not so good."

PolitiFact's Obameter, has been keeping track of obama's campaign promises, and reports that obama has kept 27 promises, compromised on seven, broken six, stalled on three, has 67 in the works and has yet to take action on another 408 (this includes FOCA).

day late, smock short


in my humble opinion, if you put yourself on the pageant circuit in the first place, you pretty much get what you deserve. i, for one, hold women who parade their bodies for money -- regardless of whether the money is spent on higher education or a closet full of stilettos -- in fairly low esteem.

that said, i take great exception to the blatant hypocrisy of hyper-liberals like perez hilton, media whore extraordinairre, who expects everyone in the world to tolerate the homosexual agenda but vomits vitriol whenever anyone disagrees with him. what a pathetic, but clear-cut, showing of his true character.

here's townhall's take: Miss CA Booed & Cheered For Gay Marriage Answer. Gay Judge Calls Her A 'Dumb B-itch'

by the way, where are the feminists in all of this? what a quandry! a gay man calls a woman a "dumb bitch" and the "c" word. what's a fem to do? i take it their allegiance with gay men trumps their allegiance with women in general? you betcha! most of the responses from "leading feminists" have been just as snarky and condemning as perez's.

to my surprise, and even if i don't totally agree with him, the most genuine and articulate reaction that i've found so far is actually from an openly gay writer, charles karel bouley, who writes:

And truthfully, who the hell cares what a pageant winner thinks about social policies? SHE'S A PAGEANT BEAUTY QUEEN, not running for public office. Her job will be to attend corporate events and speak all around the country. IF she won and IF she went on a anti-marriage campaign, then, in America it would be your right to launch some sort of campaign against her. Chances are, she would have stayed away from that topic for an entire year.

here's his article, Dear Perez: Miss California Gave The Right Answer For The Moment.

two words: stomach and virus.

i'm sick to death of the utter hypocrisy local mainstream media and their abysmal coverage of the local tea parties in the metroplex. these reporters, and I use that term loosely, who usually slobber and gush over any sort of protest have been antagonistic and spiteful towards tea party participants. let's not even get into the national media's sorry coverage, or lack thereof, of the events on a nationwide scale or my head will likely blow up. i'm just so infuriated i could vomit! ***end smockrant***

a cheeky dame of nearly 48. unemployed and living alone with her cat, pebbles, she says, "i've never been married. never been kissed. oh, shame." she has wanted to sing in front of an audience since she was twelve. and, here is her chance.

here is susan boyle.


i don't know that this is an appropriate EASTER picture, but to my recollection, it's one of mamaT's favorites and i happen to like it myself, so there y'all go. s'been quiet around here lately, but we're grateful to those of y'all who still drop by these parts from time to time, even when the porch is empty.

while the smock has been MIA as part of her Lenten resolve, she is happy to be back after a "40 days in the wilderness" of sorts. she has a lot of catching up to do and is looking forward to recon-netting with the blogoshpere in general, and her fellow saint blogs' parishioners in particular.

la mamacita has been MIA due to an internet snafu, and has been busy homeschooling, knitting, and caring for her spicy brood; but i'm guessing that we'll see more of her around here soon.

as you probably know, mamaT recently lost her beloved dad, Frank Cox. thank you for keeping his soul and mamaT's family in your prayers.

this is our second year celebrating easter at my mom's house in waxahachie. i think it may be a new tradition. while we weren't planning on a photo session, with a lawn this lush, how could we resist?
