Socks the Cat is dead

Sad news department...

If you ever wondered what happens to Politicial Cats when their White House tour is up..

BALTIMORE – Socks, the White House cat during the Clinton administration who waged war on Buddy the pup, has died. He was around 18.

Socks had lived with Bill Clinton's secretary, Betty Currie, in Hollywood, Md., since the Clintons left the White House in early 2001.

Currie confirmed Socks' death Friday evening and said she was "heartbroken." She did not give details, referring calls to the Clinton Foundation office.

"Socks brought much happiness to Chelsea and us over the years, and enjoyment to kids and cat lovers everywhere. We're grateful for those memories, and we especially want to thank our good friend, Betty Currie, for taking such loving care of Socks for so many years."


Ah yes, the Clintons loved him so much they gave him away... Why am I not surprised?

But if you think that is bad, just wait and see what happens to Bubba if he has to depend on Hillary to take care of him in his dotage!

Obama's Speech last night

I was going to write a long post on the nonsense contained in Hussein's comments on the economy, and how he was going to save us all.

But this video does it better than I ever could.

The ultimate back scratcher

It's been that kind of day.

Now where's my pipe, slippers and a Stoly on the rocks!

Hat tip to Shawn!
