New Year's Resolutions For Politicians

(bah humbug. another year, another chance to snarl)

All right guys and gals in Washington, gather round and repeat after me:

1. I resolve to act in the best interests of my constituents and my country in 2010.

2. I resolve not to be swayed by campaign contributions from giant corporations. I will put principles above payouts.

3. I resolve to argue with opponents only about issues and policy. I will leave out the name-calling, blatant lies and smarmy little catch-phrases designed to grab headlines and inflame the already-angry overweight white people in baseball caps.

And 4. Once I retire, I will go away. I will not issue irate statements or write rambly Facebook messages attacking the current political leaders. I will write my book, collect my millions, and snarl off into the sunset.

... sigh ... wouldn't that be nice?



  1. Your rants are funny with a sharp little edge. Just the right tone, Lesley! Happy New Year to you and yours!

  2. that would be a happy new year, and a very nice dream...

  3. And Dick could you do something about that face too. I am tired of seeing that stupid smug smirk. It's the main reason THIS overweight person in a ball cap is so inflamed. It irritates the heck out of me. Why don't you try this resolution - I will find a nice dark hole and keep my head buried in it for the entire year.

    Unbelievable!! my word verification- SCARE - even Google is afraid of Dick.

  4. Thanks Tina! I try to keep a little humor in there to prevent myself from screaming all the time. Happy New Year to you too!

    Sarah: Don't pinch me, I think I'd rather not wake up. lol

    Rae: You are awesome! Rant, girl, rant!

  5. Good luck with those Lesley... and Happy New Year to you & yours!

  6. Thanks Jim, Happy New Year to you too! I'm sure 2010 will be just as "interesting" as 2009 was, so we'll all have plenty to rant about.

  7. Oh what a dream that would be. We've certainly had our fill of him, why won't he and that beauty pageant bimbo fade away...far far away.

    Happy New Year
