Oh, Kevin, dear sweet husband of mine...

KEVIN: Yes, Jennifer?

JENNIFER: Thank you for taking me to Festa Italiana today.

KEVIN: You are most welcome dear.

JENNIFER: Thanks for buying me lots of good things to eat and drink.

KEVIN: What’s a great husband for?

JENNIFER: Although I thought we could have spent more time in the Italian Gold section…. 

KEVIN: I had to go to the men’s room.

JENNIFER: Oh, I understand and I’m not complaining.

KEVIN: Then what are you getting at?

JENNIFER: Well, being on the Summerfest grounds got me to thinking…

KEVIN: Oh no…

JENNIFER: Will you just shush…. 

KEVIN: Thinking about what? A trip? A new car? What?

JENNIFER: None of those things.

KEVIN: Oh! Well in that case….

JENNIFER: Oh, hush up and listen. I was thinking…

KEVIN: You’re very blonde and very Polish…

JENNIFER: Kevin! Be nice!

KEVIN: Yes dear.  Of course, dear. Three bags full, dear.

JENNIFER: Are you done? I just wanted to remind you that next week it’s German Fest.

KEVIN: That’s right. German pizza and spanferkel and German beer and Ein Prosit and…. 

JENNIFER: Yes, yes, yes…..but there’s more.  They’ve got these dogs….

KEVIN: No, they don’t have dogs. They have bratwurst, and…

JENNIFER:  I’m talking dogs, not hot dogs ….real dogs. 

KEVIN: Real dogs?

JENNIFER: Yes, real dogs. Can we go to German Fest?

KEVIN: We always go to German Fest. I’m 100% German and 100% Irish, remember.

JENNIFER: Then we can go Saturday?

KEVIN: I suppose. Can you get The Barking Lot done and not tie up the computer?

JENNIFER: Well, that’s what I want to talk to you about.

KEVIN: A new Batman movie is out and you’re the Riddler. Speak up!

JENNIFER: I know it’s not Saturday…

KEVIN: You’re blonde and Polish and you got that right….

JENNIFER: And I know I already did the Barking Lot Saturday….

KEVIN: Yes, and it was outstanding…not as good as my stuff, but it was pretty good…

JENNIFER: Well, could I blog again?

KEVIN: You want to blog again??!!


KEVIN: It’s not Saturday! It’s not your turn! You start blogging on other days and the readers will get all confused! Aw geez!

JENNIFER: But I forgot…

KEVIN: Forgot? Forgot what?

JENNIFER: Forgot about German Fest.

KEVIN: No you didn’t. I promise I’ll take you and since I’m such a nice guy, I’ll buy you extra apple sauce.

JENNIFER: That’s not it. I forgot to mention something in The Barking Lot.

KEVIN: Ay caramba!

JENNIFER: Well, I got all wound up in that awesome Humane Society story…

KEVIN: And you forgot…

JENNIFER: And I forgot about German Fest.

KEVIN: I told you I’ll take you to German Fest., alright. Now can I get back to….

JENNIFER: No, no, no. I wanted to mention something about German Fest in The Barking Lot.

KEVIN: Is that all?


KEVIN: No more talk about Italian Gold?


KEVIN: Well then, what are you waiting for? 

JENNIFER: German Fest runs this coming weekend at the Summerfest grounds. I recommend going Saturday for the dachshund races! Here are details!

Danke Schoen, Kevin, my dear sweet husband!

KEVIN: No problem. So, when do you want to go to German Fest? Sunday?

JENNIFER: And he calls me Polish..

"Thug" is not a racist word: The left (James Rowen) shows its ignorance again

I have to admit, I am reveling in seeing lefty blogger James Rowen get the elitist environmental snobbery kicked out of him by righty bloggers.

Unless you subscribe to Rowen’s philosophy of kissing 50 different trees daily, or if you just happen to be a conservative, Rowen arrogantly attacks you.

Rowen recently proved what a doofus he truly is by calling righty blogger, “No Runny Eggs” a racist because he referred to Milwaukee County Board Chairman Lee Holloway as a “thug.”

Rowen, you see, is an incredibly guilty white liberal a la Joel McNally. What kind of warped mind actually sees racism in the word, “thug”?  That is an assertion that is so stupid it’s laughable. Rowen either needs to consult a dictionary or emerge from his ivory tower world of “green” to realize that there are black thugs, Hispanic thugs, and yes, even white thugs. No ethnic group has a monopoly on the title, thus, using the word “thug” is not racist.

But it is so simple for the debate-challenged left to toss out the race card when they run out of material, which for Rowen and liberals amounts to about 12 seconds. That’s when the bumper sticker crying towels come flying out. The public is wise to this tactic, but Rowen is too dumb to fathom it.

I am pleased that a bevy of righty bloggers has decided to pinpoint Rowen for the fool he is by writing about his moronic accusation:

Badger Blogger

Boots and Sabers

James Wigderson

Brian Fraley

What’s really nice about this is that a group of righty bloggers has correctly banded together and has refused to suck up to the lefties. They clearly understand that gets you nowhere as a conservative. Lefties will stab you in the back, no matter how nice you are to them.

I’m on the air on Friday this week, possibly too late to discuss Rowen’s absurd and idiotic statements. I certainly hope other talk show hosts, whom Rowen has looked down his long nose at in the past, will pick up on this, and give him the criticism he deserves.


That stands for, "What God Can't Do."

Here's a list.

Happy Sunday.

I could never forget Mom's birthday

Her birthday falls on the same day as one of the greatest events in American history.
