Margaret and Helen

I don’t know if this blog is really written by an 82 year old woman living in Texas writing to her friend in Maine, who had to have her blog thingy set up by her grandson so they could talk to each other about politics and life in America, but DAMN, it’s funny and brilliant.

These two “Best Friends for Sixty Years and Counting…” definitely have thing or two to say about the campaign for president.

I was just watching CNN  and I couldn’t believe what I heard.  Even if McCain loses this election, many in the Republican party will see Governor Moose Meat as the candidate who almost saved McCain.  In other words, it wasn’t her fault – he would have been nothing without her.  The reporter then took that to a horrifying conclusion – Palin in 2012.

Has everybody gone mad?  Dear Lord she is like a cockroach.  We’ll never be rid of her!  I tell you after the scare of that report my hair went from a lovely silver, just like that sweet Anderson Cooper’s, to stark white… completely devoid of color (my hair not Anderson Cooper).

and they don’t apologize for expressing their opinions. At 82, they’ve earned the right, or something.

New rules:

I will stop calling George Bush a jackass when he stops calling me a terrorist: Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.

I will stop calling John McCain an ass when he stops calling Barack Obama a socialist at every dog and pony show on the Straight Talk Express tour.

I will stop calling Sarah Palin a bitch when she stops calling Obama a terrorist sympathizer.  And I will stop calling Sarah Palin a bitch when she stops calling the parts of the country where I don’t live more Pro-American than the part of the country where I do live.    And I will definitely stop calling Sarah Palin a bitch when she stops acting like a bitch.

Don’t miss the Cafe Press store. I think Helen is the artist.
