I declined my invitation to the White House state dinner the other night honoring the Indian Prime Minister, explaining in my response that I had a prior commitment to have my fingernails pulled out one at a time. Still I was curious about who attends these Presidential Shindigs, so I checked out the White House Press Office list of attendees. I found quite a few gems (The names are as they appear on the White House Press Officeâ€™s website):
I should note that I a was surprised by how many people have been identified as â€œThe Honorableâ€ So and So.
The Honorable (Mr.) Robert Gibbs, White House Press Secretary. How long have press secretaries been given the title â€œHonorable?â€ Seems a little nuts to me, particularly in the case of this dipshit.
The Honorable (Ms.) Lisa Brown, Office of Staff Secretary. â€œHonorable?â€ Sounds a bit like the office manager to me.
The Honorable (Chief of Protocol) Capricia Marshall. Iâ€™m guessing that the Honorable Ms. Marshall will be in charge of party favors, in which case everyone will get an Honorable ShamWow.
The Honorable Anita Dunn, White House Communications Director. I wonder if she brought along her little red book.
The Honorable (Secretary) Hillary R. Clinton, Secretary of State. Hillary the Honorable? Youâ€™re killing me here.
The Honorable (Senator) Chris Dodd, United States Senator (D/Connecticut). Chris the Honorable? Now youâ€™re really killing me.
The Honorable (Speaker) Nancy Pelosi, United States Representative (D/California) and Speaker of the House. OK, youâ€™ve killed me now.
The Honorable (Secretary) Timothy F. Geithner, Secretary of the Treasury. He cheated on his taxes honorably.
The Honorable (Senator) Richard Lugar, United States Senator (R/Indiana). Perhaps the only Republican legislator there. Can you say RINO?
The Honorable (Governor) Bill Richardson, Governor of New Mexico (D). I wonder if the Honorable Governor and the Honorable Hillary shared a moment.
There were a few notables on the list who, presumably, are something less than Honorable.
Mr. Thomas Friedman. Iâ€™m not the least bit surprised that this leftoid, global warming bullshit spewer made the cut. If I had to sit next to this bag of wind all night, Iâ€™d drown myself in my soup.
Brian Williams (NBC), Katie Couric (CBS) and Robin Roberts (ABC). Do these people expect anyone with a brain larger than a lentil to consider them to be journalists?
General Colin Powell. An appropriately pigmentes RINO.
Sounds like I missed a real swell time.
