Monday’s Funnies

hohoho1.jpgIt’s Monday, and Little Miss Know it All had a wild weekend.  I need some time to recover.  So for your entertainment today, may I present the Monday Funnies….

Here’s a collection of the best political cartoons over the last week, all from Cagle Cartoons.  I particularly like the ones about the so-called Listening Tour…

A Listening Tour? Are they serious?

littlemissknowitalld.jpg Okay, the White House has just gone PR mad. Do they really think that a “Listening Tour” is going to help things?

And take it from one who was once a spinmeister–that’s all this is. The President’s whole life is nothing but a Listening tour. Every day, the best and the brightest (let’s pray they are, anyway) come up to the White House, or wherever Air Force One is parked for the day, and give the President his briefings. He’s supposed to be listening EVERY day! Then, he’s supposed to take his brilliant brain (we’ll debate that another day) and the collection of advice from the brilliant brains he’s surrounded himself with, and come up with a plan.

Just because we’ve had an election where his party lost badly (I know, its a gross understatement, but I’m being nice today,) his poll numbers are in the toilet, and there’s suddenly a rising operatic chorus of “He’s failing, He’s failing” doesn’t mean that you need to put on a show of listening, and then address the people to tell them something we already know! Instead of all the PR and posturing, here’s a fresh idea, just do something! This is the life of a President, you make life altering decisions every day. There’s no need to have giant conferences and pow-wow’s beforehand, and then announce every minute step to the public….just make a decision, and let us know. You’re going to do what you want anyway, that’s part and parcel of having the power of the presidency, so why the big show of getting all these opinions?


Hello world!

littlemissknowitalld1.jpgWell, well, well, what a long and strange road its been to get to Contentquake.

 So, who am I and why should you read what I have to say?

I don’t know.  Why are you?

 Seriously, my name is Heather, more commonly known around these parts as Little Miss Know It All.  I like to write, I like to share my opinions, and I love to give advice.  So I guess that makes me a Know it All.  I figure, embrace who you are!

 Politics are one of my many passions, one passion that I actually followed for several years, working for campaigns in the midwest region.  A mayoral race, a congressional race, and so on.  The twist is, I’m an evangelical christian, but I’m not a republican.  I’m a tried and true, solid, tree hugging, unabashed Democrat.

 So that’s what I’ll be writing about–the world of politics according to Little Miss Know it All.  Join me on this fun ride, comment on what I write, enjoy this wild, wild world of politics.  Just please, don’t bash other’s opinions because they aren’t your own.  I believe in respect, even with those I disagree with.  Feel free to disagree, just be respectful.

 As my mother used to say “Everyone’s entitled to their own stupid opinions.”  And so are you. 

Welcome!
