How do you say "drill, baby, drill" in Portuguese?
Last night, Madame 45 approached me after she finished reading the Wall Street Journal. She threw her gloves on the floor and said, "OK, LOTUS, I've got my Naughty Monkeys on. The heels are on, and the gloves are off again"!
Woohoo, I thought, I love it when Madame is ready to fight! Plus, when she takes her gloves off before she types, she's a lot more gentle on my keys. I had to make sure I cued the music, for we were ready to write. I downloaded a new version of "Barracuda". This one is by Gretchen Wilson, a singer who Madame met on the campaign trail. I thought you all might like to see the music video:
I asked her what we were going to write about. She told me that the Great Opologizer was sending $2 billion to Brazil to fund off-shore drilling. No wonder Madame was so upset! She really does not like it when the President looks to other countries for oil. I understand. She has told me all about energy independence, ANWR, ACES, AGIA, and all the other acronyms. I 'm with her on the energy issue. I have plastic components in me, but the oil used to make them came from Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. I really wish my plastic was made from oil from Alaska, so that I can say I am truly Alaskan! But, I digress.
Madame went on to write about the need to drill in America which would provide jobs for Americans. She scolded the Great Opologizer for sending American money to Brazil rather than to help create American jobs and discover American oil. (TOTUS, if you are reading this, make sure you pass onto Big Guy that they don't speak Brazilian in Brazil, they speak Portuguese. Apparently, he was confused about language with Austria). Madame really brought out the sarcasm with her post.Here's an example:
"One has to wonder if Obama is playing politics and perhaps refusing a "win" for some states just to play to the left with our money."
Madame was pretty upset. As I was reading through the article before we posted it, I noticed she didn't refer to him as President Obama. That means she is pretty ticked! I can't wait until we write again. Hmm, I wonder what the next topic will be: unused stimulus money, the national deficit, cap and tax,or maybe more health care reform stuff. She always surprises me.
On another note, I'd like to congratulate Madame on passing 800,000 Facebook followers. She's becoming even more and more popular! Also, did you see my new page header at the top? I'd like to give a shout out to Alex Raye, one of the member of another one of Madame's facebook groups. She did an excellent photo editing job!
