The Social Poets: Funny Obama Inauguration Photo Bombs and Late Nite Jokes

Obama Inauguration Jokes


The Social Poets: Funny Obama Inauguration Photo Bombs and Late Nite Jokes: From Denny:  Since President Obama's second inauguration the web has had a lot of fun with the various amusing inauguration photos - including a few hilarious photo bombs, most unintentional.  President Clinton's is the most recognized but the funniest are of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) hamming it up for recognition.

And the late night comics just had to make us laugh at every moment, especially comments about the First Lady Eye Roll at annoying GOP House Speaker John Boehner.

We all enjoy a good laugh when we discover our politicians are more human than they let on in front of most cameras and on talk shows.

Just check out this latest photo (January 2013) of the President running along the White House Colonnade with the active children of his newest Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough.  Give it 20 years and we may see one of the McDonough kids running for the presidency.  Nothing like getting in some election run practice with a presidential veteran!

A Truth Journal: Stupid Grilling of Sec. Clinton on Benghazi: Funny Colbert and Jon Stewart Weigh In




A Truth Journal: Stupid Grilling of Sec. Clinton on Benghazi: Funny Colbert and Jon Stewart Weigh In: From Denny:   .... Both sides were overkill.  In the end, the Democrats looked a bit silly.  It was the Republicans that came across smelling like 10 day old roadkill on a hot summer's night.

Sec. Clinton handled herself with diplomacy, strength of conviction and principles - and smart political maneuvering.  She's ready for a run in 2016.  And these idiot Republicans may just have given her cause to do so.  Those guys never learn.

Here's a news clip from the hearing.  Following are three clips featuring Stephen Colbert's and Jon Stewart's hilarious reactions to the political parade at the hearing.  Of course, their clips contain portions of the footage from the actual hearing to prove their point:  Too many Republicans end up members of The Total Putz Clan.  4 video clips.

A Truth Journal: Polls: Public Widely Supports Prez Obama On Assault Weapons Ban and More




A Truth Journal: Polls: Public Widely Supports Prez Obama On Assault Weapons Ban and More: From Denny:  The NRA and the Republicans might as well give up now while they are still treading water.  The public is growing increasingly restless, anxious for the safety of their children, and downright angry that the NRA and members of Congress are pushing back against common sense and decency.

Thirty days after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, American opinion is rising to higher levels to support serious gun control measures never before considered on a national scale.  Local cities and various states are not waiting for Congress and are passing their own gun control legislation, like New York state.

In the latest Pew Research poll about gun control released yesterday the numbers are high in favor of many gun restrictions, contrary to the NRA public relations campaign attempting to sell to the contrary.

A Truth Journal: Why Wont Pentagon Pay For PTSD Service Dogs For Returning Soldiers?

Advocate staff photo by PATRICK DENNIS -- Joe Tullier, left, and his wife, Cami, work with therapy dog Etta James, an 18-month-old mixed breed, acclimating her to hospital settings and equipment as well as patient situations. The dog will be used as a therapy dog, visiting servicemen in hospital situations.

A Truth Journal: Why Wont Pentagon Pay For PTSD Service Dogs For Returning Soldiers?:  From Denny:  This new fledgling effort service dogs project in Louisiana between two vets has the potential to significantly lower the funding necessary for mental health costs for our soldiers returning from the battlefield.  Yet the Pentagon and Veteran Affairs slough it off as meaningless.  In the home for 24 hours a day, service dogs are always cheaper than years of talk and drug therapy with expensive psychiatrists on a weekly or monthly basis.
