HELLO TO ALL FIFTEEN OF MY READERS: BETTY BLOGGER HAS BEEN FOLLOWING ALL THE NEWS ABOUT THESE "REAL WOMEN" in this DOVE AD. Wow! You would have thought real women didn’t exist before Madison Avenue discovered them! These real women were discovered for one reason. Real women exist so Madison Avnenue can exploit insecurity. Same old McKrap in a brand new wrapper.
REAL, AVERAGE WOMEN HAVE WAISTS larger than the stick chicks you see than the average top inflated, top model in a Victoria’s Secret ad. Madison Avenue wants you to know “real” women have “normal” bodies with “real” curves.
BUT REALITY IS NOT ENOUGH. Once again women are being sold SNAKE OIL. These "real" women are being used to sell firming cream. You will be more firm, real women. What we are sold could be more pathetic, no?
MEN DON'T GET SOLD FIRMING CREAMS. They get sold firming pills. One of them is called VIAGRA.
Here is a Fourth of July Weekend Laugher for All Ten of My Loyal Readers. Mister Right Alberto Gonzales is not right enough for some conservatives, not right enough to be the go to guy for the Supreme Court. So who can the right call on that has the right approach to cases that involve the Ten Commandments and other Right issues? Moses is unavailable for obvious reasons and Ruth Bader Ginsburg already has the so called Jewish seat on the Court. Here are some gals far more serious than me who are banging their gavels on the problems our boy president will have on getting The Right Person for The Right Job. I see Maha, Patricia . . .
BETTY BLOGGER HAS A MESSAGE FOR ALL SEVEN OF HER LOYAL READERS. I am crying again over Downing Street. When I called that loser Dana Milbank to ask him why he says the Downing Street Memo is a non story now when he didn’t cover it earlier, Dana doesn’t call me back. How long would an All American girl like me have to wait for him to call back or cover a story that concerns all Americans? At least my spiritual mother Molly Ivins knows what’s going on.
The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times have all gone way out of their way to deny that the Downing Street Memos (it's now plural) are news. Like many of you, during the entire lead-up to the war with Iraq, I thought the whole thing was a set-up.
Molly reads all the newspapers. She says that’s her job. I don’t have a real job making real money swimming with big fish in the media. Still a girl with a laptop can dream. Unless the laptop gets repossessed. Speaking of that, what possesses darling Bush when he believes this Memo story will be forgotten? I Betty Blogger declare to all eight of my readers that I will continue on about this. Thank you, number eight for logging in and clicking you mouse my way! And thank you, Molly. for making sense of all this mess.
It was always weird that the White House kept saying it knew Saddam Hussein had WMD, but it would never tell the U.N. inspectors where. Yes, I suspected all that, but I was not the head of British intelligence in the summer of 2002, for pity's sake.
Has anybody forgotten when Rumsfeld said he knew where the WMD were. He said the WMD were to the north and to the south and to the west and to the east of Baghdad. Somewhat. Everywhere. Just like where the proof that Bush wanted to go to war is there. Everywhere. But nobody wants to see it. I guess that’s why I am crying. Maybe we all should be crying. Crying out to all the dumbasses who think this is not a story and not news. Because, baby, it is.
BETTY BLOGGER ON DOWNING STREET Why Am I Crying Over That Loser George W. Bush? He said he'd find Osama, dead or alive and all we end up with is pictures of Saddam in his boxers, not briefs. Men . . . and Presidents . . . I just don't understand . . . *sigh*
And Downing Street? I am going to finish what my daddy started?
What are these Bush boys all about? What is sonny boy W doing? It's like he's trying to prove to daddy that the son has a bigger um presidency. Can I be saying this? It almost makes me miss Nixon. At least with Nixon you knew a dick when you saw one. *sigh*
BUT ENOUGH TALK ABOUT DICK, NIXON OR OTHERWISE: Because today . . . Betty has seen some women bloggers who can rock her world, rock it inside out . . . here is what lefteous ladies are saying . . . this lady is nobody's fool . . . MORE WOMEN TO FOLLOW HERE, ALTHOUGH ALL OF THEM REALLY TAKE THE LEAD . . . Janie's got a pen, and is a damn fine writer . . .
