I’m southern. We say it a little different.  But the meaning is the same.

I’m going to start this by saying C*N*N isn’t my favorite news outlet, but I was watching the  “debate” over Ob*ma’s school speech next week and it was preempted by Mich*el J*ackson’s 2nd funeral.  Seriously?  Hasn’t the past 70 days of coverage been enough?  It kept cutting in and out because his family was over an hour late for his funeral and there were glimpses of the 26 matching Range Rovers on the interstate.  They’ve had 70 days.  Most people get a week.  Tops.

I’m so glad our news outlets have their priorities straight.

Since C*N*N won’t throw this shout out…to the wives of the Seabees coming home from their 2nd tour in Iraq…Hang in there ladies….your heroes will be home soon.  xoxo
