ROSCOE’S Mid-Weak Review

Trent Lott said what?

So, it doesn’t even take 24 hours for Joltin’ Joe Biden to shoot his own presidential candidacy in the fanny with an egregiously offensive remark about Barack Obama being a “clean” black. That’s gotta be some kind of speed record, don’t you think?

But then, Biden’s a Dhimmicrat, so it’s not likely to have that much traction in the mainstream mediocracy. Not nearly as much, anyway, as if one of those nasty Republicans—like, say, Trent Lott or George Allen—had said it.

So, this Biden gaffe may not have the same repercussions, but it still has a certain entertainment value for people like us. And, considering the Dhimmicrat talent line-up, we can probably look forward to a lot more such entertainment this political season.

As Trent Lott would say, that’s almost as much fun as a Strom Thurmond 100th birthday party.

Jacques Chirac said what?

So, the president of France thinks one or two little nukes might be OK for Iran to mess around with? Well, we’re glad he’s got some standards. We’d hate to think Jacques was a sucker or something.

The United States and Israel could probably afford to lose one major city each, right? In the big scheme of things, Jacques probably thinks that’s reasonable.

Seriously, what is wrong with these people? Apparently, Chirac thought better of his remarks after they were published and tried to take them back. Not that he didn’t say them—just that he thought he was speaking off the record.

So, that makes it OK? Does that all make better sense in French than it does in English?

Do you suppose he might have room on his ticket in the next election for a certain similarly bizarre senator from Vermont? Inquiring minds want to know...

And finally

Hat tip to Wendy C. for the following touching item:

Grieving pet owners can now turn their dead animals into diamonds.

The gems, made using carbon from the pet's ashes, can be created from any animal from a hamster to a horse.

Pet Crematorium CPC, of Thiplow, Hertfordshire, charges from £2,100 to £15,000 depending on the diamond's size and quality.

Cost is not linked to the size of the pet.

The firm's Duncan Francis said: 'Having a stunning diamond created from the pet's ashes provides an everlasting link which some people find very comforting.'
