Even better than a ‘Simpsons’ rerun!

Our soon-to-be-ex-president makes a live speech to family and friends at 8 p.m. Eastern time. Guess he needed a sympathetic laugh track .

Just the other day, MSNBC ran parts of his press conference in defense of his presidency. The national lack-of-command-of-his-faculties authority defended the federal response to hurricane Katrina, noting that 30,000 New Orleans residents were rescued from their rooftops.

Let’s see. Thirty thousand people recovered from rooftops, as opposed to evacuating them – and thousands of others stranded in the city – before the hurricane. That doesn’t sanctify the federal response. It does, however, speak volumes of the courage of hundreds of military helicopter aircrew who risked their lives to rescue the victims of criminally stupid municipal, state and federal government officials.

Enjoy your speech, Dubya. If there was any justice on January 20, you’d get nothing more than a car ride to the train station so you could buy your own train ticket home.

there was something going on that actually piqued my interest:

The 31st Annual O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships occur Saturday in Austin, Texas

While the sound link was a little too droll and not quite as groan-inducing as I’d hoped, it did give me hope that some folks were indeed pushing Austin city’s limits.

And in belated celebration, here’s one of my longtime personal favorites:

She fell in love with him because of his love of 18th century English poetry. He always had the perfect verse or passage to heighten their romantic feelings. Finally they wed.

But even as the rose loses its blush, she began to tire of his fascination with and incessant quoting of the classics. One day she could contain herself no more and demanded that he stop.

He looked at her for a moment and then said . . . .
