I call it the ‘Castro Hour’ in dis(honor) of Fidel hisself, for all his speeches, sermons and harangues held for hours and days at a time, in the open, village square, perpetually, standing-room only*. Why? Because I couldn’t find a TV station that wasn’t showing the ‘Castro Hour’, that’s why! And I thought the networks had come to their prez-O fatigue moment last year, not feeling compelled to carry every one of his appearances..several times..every day. There for awhile. Better get those seats, folks, the name-calling begins now. This is the time when everyone attending is announced so it will be known for eons this-or-that senator, this-or-that representative, this-or-that VIP, not-so-important attendees, SCOTUS, and not a mouse in sight, attended the occasion. There was a time when I watched the State of the Union Address, filled with pride and hope – not high on Hopium. So without further ado…..SEND IN THE CLOWNS!!!.
UPDATE 1: Grown-ups screeching?
UPDATE 2: I didn’t know “clapping” came in cans like laughter.
UPDATE 3: No one’s hands or arms have fallen off yet.
UPDATE 4: Wow. CONTRIVANCE EXTRAORDINAIRE!
UPDATE 5: Phoney-baloney pomp & circumstance fit for a king.
UPDATE 6: Well. That introduction was o.b.s.c.e.n.e.
