Patti Rothberg 'Between The 1 And The 9'

Are you sick and extremely drained hearing about Barack Obama?

He has finally taken the oath and given the keys to the White House. Hooray!

Can we frackin’ move on now?

Everyone is so happy and optimistic about the guy and yet they forget about the problems that aren’t going away because Mr. Smiles has taken the reigns. I personally cannot wait until the blind followers won over by words like “Change” and “Believe” finally open up their eyes and realize that President Dimples hasn’t changed our world one iota.

Please keep in mind that I didn’t vote Republican… I’m one of those “wackos” that believes in smaller government, personal responsibility, and the freedom that the Constitution guarantees for all people of this great land. I’m a Libertarian and I cannot help finding myself amused how easily brainwashed the masses can be.

I woke up this morning and turned on the television for a little news and weather. And they’re still talking about President Snookie-Lumps… It seems that President Obama took his first morning dump in the White House after breakfast. Reports confirm that the Presidential bowel movement was solid and measured 8 and 7/16 inches. And they even quoted The Road To Wellville by saying that Obama’s bowel movement had “no more odor than a hot biscuit”.

Oh well… We should enjoy the party until someone yells last call. But I’m thinking the hangover is going to feel like all the rest of them.

And what was the deal with Aretha Franklin’s hat?

It looked like something from a bad 80’s situation comedy. I couldn’t help but wonder why a legend like Franklin would allow someone to place such a garish monstrosity upon her head and send her out in front of millions of people. But then again, she’s old and those blind followers are happy enough to wear their loud Obama shirts that would label any Jeff Gordon shirt too dim.

And another thing… Am I the only one on the planet that thinks that our new First Lady looked a little chunky in that golden dress?

After reading this, I’m fearing that my overabundant heterosexuality fuel gauge may be getting a little less cozy with the “F” and moving towards the “E” side.

What’s gotten into me?

Feel free to leave your witty comments. But I’m not asking Christine to go off on some tirade.

Got it girl?

--Now to more important matters.

What the hell is going on with my Netflix?

I get disc one of season four of Wild Wild West as I’m finishing up another series. I mailed off two discs after finishing them over the weekend and one of them was the Wild Wild West disc. So I’m expecting to get more of the Wild Wild West, but what do I get?

Discs one and two from season four of Gilmore Girls!

Wild Wild West is listed as available, but they didn’t send it. Oh well… I just moved the folks from Stars Hollow up the queue and placed them in front of James West and Artemus Gordon. No biggie. These things happen.

I sent back discs two and three of Gilmore Girls on Tuesday and what do you think they’re sending me for tomorrow?

Discs one and two of The Untouchables Season 2 Volume 2.

What in the hell is Barack going to do about that?


  1. On Aretha...I dont think the word country should be broken up into words.

  2. What is she? 96?

    It was almost as sad as the time the Indy (the racetrack) family dragged out their Great something or another to tell the NASCAR guys to "start their engines". The poor old lady drooled all over herself while no one could understand what she was saying.


  3. i'm voting this as "best of '09." ha! cracked me up! <3

  4. Thank you for your support, Molly.

    This has nothing to do with the blog, but I just thought I'd let you know that DC Comics has gone and done the unthinkable.


    In the series entitled Final Crisis, he meets his end at the hands, or eyes rather, of the New God Darkseid. However, he breaks his #1 Rule in an effort to stop him. He SHOOTS HIM with a Radion Gun ( a weapon with the power to kill a God ). But first, DS introduces him to the Omega Effect. The end result is Batman's inceneration. Superman was unable to save him. All he gets to see is his charred remains. How sad.

  6. Charles,

    You KNOW they'll bring him back. They always do.

    So get off the ledge and come back inside. Everything will be okay.

    To answer your original question, "Yes I am!" Everywhere I turn, people are going on and on about how great things are gonna be now, but I am just like, "It's gonna be pretty much the same. It always is. With the way our government actually works, there is only so much that can be done. " But no one wants to hear that. (I'm afraid to say it out loud, lest I be the victim of random acts of Hope and Change upside my head, yet there it is. It's gonna be pretty much the same. It always is.) I do feel kind of bad for the guy though, the expectations are so unattainably high that there is no way he can hope (and change!) to live up to them. Either way I'll just be glad when we can all move on to discussing something else... at this point I'd even be willing to talk about the Super Bowl or comic books. Wait, maybe not comic books.

  8. Darkseid will slay you, Kim. All hail Darkseid! Slayer of the Batman!

    Superman as kicked DS ass about how many times in the past. All hail clark. The only reason DS is around is bc sups did what heroes with morals do, refuse to kill -- unless its doomsday that is.

  10. It's amazing how this all started with B.T.O. - Barack Television Overdrive.

    How did we get to comics?

    Charles, that's right.

    Robby's year in a Toyota!

    Enough of this comic talk! I'm moving on to racing.
    I don't know what I'm gonna do this year with all of the changes that have happened in the off-season. Newman's out of the Alltel Dodge and into some Army Chevy. I don't think I am too excited about that. In fact, I know I'm not. I'd look into adopting a new favorite, but then I'd feel like a traitor. I still like Newman, but the new car/sponsor/team sucks. I need a car with a better sponsor than that. Perhaps something small, bite-sized and chocolate. Hmmm...

  12. Don't do it, Kim! That's truly going over to the dark side. Please!

  13. Anonymous8:51 PM

    The " Dark Side " of NASCAR? I can dig it.

    Small, bite-sized, chocolate, and peanut filled. Mmmm.

  14. Anonymous7:28 PM

    Everything's better on the Dark Side, is it not? (Though, Peanut filled = downgrade. Seriously.) I will reserve the right to switch allegiances once I have seen the Army Chevy or whatever it is in action. I am also considering a move to a less chocolatey delicious team sponsored by a certain beverage I have no actual experience with. But the bottles look cool, and one could conceivably wear said team's paraphernalia without donning 18 different colors... just two. We'll see..

  15. Kim,

    I'm hoping that beverage you're not familiar with is Jim Beam?!

  16. Anonymous2:37 AM

    Nope, but close. In fact, unless things have changed and nascar has forgotten to update their driver roster page, the two teams/cars/sponsors have a lot in common. Same sort of product, same kind of product name, and (and I had to check on this one), almost-the-same car number.

  17. Casey Mears will be in the #07 Jack Daniels Chevy this season. Clint Bowyer will be in the #33 General Mills Chevy with no owner points. That alone should make the first 5 races for Bowyer very interesting.

    Wow! Seems like we are all really interested in politics here! I think I will jump on the bandwagon and say all we need now is for DC Comics to sponsor a car, have the driver dress up like Batman and we will all be happy. I was trying to think of a witty # to use....... I'm at a loss. I see a "dark" colorscheme....
