View From The Ditch Bank
LAST CHANCE WIRE BENDING---So where is this going,you ask? Oh! you didn't ask. Well I'll tell you any way. Those of you who watch the TV show Biggest Loser, know that at the end of the week, before they go for the weekly weigh in, they go through a day called a Last Chance Workout. A very in-tents, Oh intense, day of of exercise, trying to lose the most weight they can before facing the the scale. And any one who has ever been in a position to cut a piece of wire knows that if you don't have wire cutters you can bend it back and forth, vigorously, until it breaks. So what does this have to do with any thing? I watched the State of the Union wishlist speech last week. I missed a bit of the speech while being entertained by the last chance wire benders; namely Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden. Nancy was jumping up and down from her chair so often she would make Bob and Jillyn happy with her performance. And Joe, well, I kept wondering when his head was going to fall off and roll across the floor. He looked like a bobble head doll, except I wouldn't call him a doll. I guess if we ever get lucky enough for them to lose their jobs, they can get employment as personal trainers doing jump ups and neck exercises. And that is the View From The Ditch Bank.
