Hump Day Wild Card April 30, 2008

Good morning, Netizens...

My God, when I first saw this picture last night in the Associated Press I simply knew I could not resist. Normally each morning, I spend an inordinate amount of time going through the various news agencies looking for a story (and a picture) that speaks to me. As you have seen over the past few days, there has been a wealth of new stories from which to choose, ranging from the Todd Chism story which may yet have to unfold, the incredibly macabre story of Fritzl in Austria and the Hanna Montana story.

However, this morning, after some reflection, I decided to allow a picture to speak for itself, as the caricature of Hillary Clinton as a plastic gasbag filled with warm air simply overwhelmed me. Of course, if you are a big fan of Hillary Clinton, perhaps today's picture and my commentary might not appeal to your tastes. I truly tried seriously to find a similar picture of Barak Obama, but thus far no one has stepped up to the forefront with anything closely resembling this excellent picture.

So, there is your Wild Card for the morning. Granted, it doesn't have a surplus of content, but even this morning, it almost made me spill a cup of our fine espresso on the counter. So, pour yourself a cup of this morning's excellent blend, Whoppaloopa Satire Blend. One cup of our Virtual Espresso and you end up hopelessly convulsed in laughter on the floor.
