The presidential trash


Not pictured:  Joe Bidens Camaro and the old sofa on the porch.

Completely unrelated:   Mark Steyn is a very bad man.

Also unrelated:  Would it be Senator Mellencamp, Senator Cougar, or Senator Cougar-Mellencamp?


Barrack Obama, Feb 2, 2010:  "You don't blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you're trying to save for college."

Barrack Obama, Feb 19, 2010:  President Barack Obama is unveiling $1.5 billion in housing help, a boost timed to his appearance in the city with the worst foreclosure crisis in the nation.

You don't blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you're trying to fix the economy.


  1. Trenton, I'm all excited after this reading of this post.

    "Mellencamp is no stranger to politics. In 2008, he recorded a radio commercial supporting Barack Obama's presidential campaign and requested that Republican candidate John McCain stop playing his songs, including "Our Country" and "Pink Houses," at his rallies.

    Mellencamp's songs often have political or social themes. He is a co-founder of Farm Aid."

    I'm thinking The Cougar would be the perfect candidate to run against...oh, I don't know...whoever the Republicans run, like maybe Payton Manning, or somebody. Manning sucks, because he got beat (again) in a big game, and because he sucks...and I think he's a Republican. And, he sucks.

    I didn't know Melmankamp had actually been no stranger to politics. Heck, he recorded a commercial once, and put McCain in his place about using his intellectual/artistic property.

    I think he'd fit right in with a whole bunch of Senators because of that. And, THAT ALONE is enough to reason to reason to make him in the Senate!

    Thanks for giving us the heads-up on his campaign to replace the quitter, Buy!

  2. Yes. The (hopefullY) future senator (congressperson?) Mr. Cougar-Mellencamp had my vote when he stuck it to McCain like that. When you learn how progressive he really is, it gets easier to forgive him for the way he left Creedence.
