2011 is about to become history and the most memorable event appears to be a tie between the end of Osama bin Laden and Kim Kardashian's wedding/marriage. While the right is crediting former President Bush for bin Laden's demise, they remain silent about a possible Bush connection to the Kardashian breakup.
Groom of 2012 could be the recently divorced Mel Gibson. Ladies? Any takers? He might open a million and a half account at Tiffany's. A Tiffany account worked wonders for a fat grandfather who married a trophy wife with plastic hair.
The U.S. finally got out of Iraq. Whew! A valid mission impossible to find any WMD, and when is Tom Cruise going to start aging? In his latest Mission Impossible, he looks better than in Risky Business or Top Gun. Stem cell scientists should investigate. Not claiming WMD, David Cameron is viewing Somalia as a threat to Great Britain.
Somalia has oil. Lots and lots of oil. Almost as much as Iraq. Deja vu? Any takers? It'll be risky business to convince the world community of Somalia's threat to Great Britain. Russia is a more significant threat and only an hour away. Russia also has deep oil reserves and everyone knows that they have WMD.
The Arab Spring sprung protests around the world. Obama has a way of stirring up the possibility of a better world with provocative ideas like valid representation. And why isn't a 51 vote out of 100 considered a majority? Gotta keep it at 60.
The other side could get 51 and they'll have the majority. Like the Audrey Hepburn film, Two For The Road, when a brat throws away the car keys and everyone is stranded looking for car keys. "Why can't we use the spare?" Answer: If we use the spare and lose it, we won't have a spare.
The Republican presidential candidates resemble a Frank Gehry building flapping in the wind and going nowhere.
This time next year? Obama will be top gun and looking forward to a second term.
Have a brave New Year!
