Bruno Mars--The Lazy Song
Today, I don't feel like doing anything. I took last weekend off because I was attending the wake of my Irish granny. And I join you this Sunday most reluctantly. It's hard when you have spent the better part of the last week contemplating mortality and legacies to not look at this lineup and not want to put your foot through the TV. Why is it that even with all the town halls where Americans fight back against the draconian cuts suggested by the Paul Ryan plan, This Week offers Ayn Rand's pin-up boy a headlining booking without all the nasty fuss of someone....well, sane as "balance"? Can you remember the last time they did that for a Democratic politician? Me neither. Or how about yet another appearance of John "If it's Sunday, you know where to find me" McCain and his BFF Lindsey Graham? Or Tea Party pin up boy Marco Rubio? Or bat-sh#t crazy Michele Backmann? Last time I checked, we have 100 Senators and 435 Congresspeople. They couldn't drag up a better Democratic representative than former DINO Jane Harman? Oy. Maybe I will go back to my bed.
