Man of the House

Quick, how many houses do you own? I’ll give you 10 seconds, think carefully.

Tick, tock, tick, tock …

If you answered, “My staff will have to get back to you,” you probably need to have some things checked.

You have got to be kidding me! John McCain is running for president, and he can’t answer that simple question.

“I think — I’ll have my staff get to you. It’s condominiums where — I’ll have them get to you.”

Once again, good to see the Republicans have chosen an “everyman” to carry their torch. And he’s accusing Obama of being an elitist?

Here’s what Obama had to say to an audience in Chester, Va.:

“I guess . . . if you don’t know how many houses you have, then it’s not surprising that you might think the economy was fundamentally strong. But if you’re like me, and you’ve got one house, or you are like the millions of people who are struggling right now to keep up with their mortgage so they don’t lose their home, you might have a different perspective.”

Before I go on my next job interview, I think I’ll review how many houses I own, just in case someone tries to trip me up.

Turn yourself in, … or don’t

Believe it or not, the U.S. actually had a program called Schedule Departure where illegal immigrants could voluntarily come forward and be deported.

I say had because, well, it had to be shut down.

Why, you say?

Well, believe it or not, it wasn’t because of the swarms of immigrants who couldn’t wait to have the U.S. government round them up, ban them from entering the country, even legally, for 10 years and then transport them to Mexico, where they’ll just have to spend an outrageous amount of money and risk their lives, simply to get back to where they were.

No, I guess the 8 … yes, 8, that’s right, 8 … the 8 people who volunteered in the program’s three-week trial period weren’t enough to give the INS the impression this might be a good idea.

It shouldn’t have taken three weeks and eight Mexicans to tell them that.

The big catch

Bait-your-hook Barbie, in stores soon

Dad takes little girl fishing. Little girl has to go to bathroom. Dad holds little girl’s Barbie fishing rod while she’s gone. Dad catches state-record channel catfish using little girls left-behind Barbie rod.

Believe it … or not.
