Manifesto Joe's Great Moments In Conservative History, Chapter 7: Bush Turns Masher

There's been a news report that German Chancellor Angela Merkel does not plan to attend the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympic Games in Beijing because of China's human rights record.

George W. Bush, the report said, plans to be there. It's my theory that Merkel isn't going to show because she doesn't want another of those shoulder massages like Bush gave her a couple of years ago at the G-8 Summit.

I wonder, did he call her Merkie-Merk? -- MJ

LMAO! That is one of the first things I thought when I wrote about Nancy Pelosi suggesting we boycott the opening games.

Speaking of Texas blues, here's one of the finest blues songs of all time, which you can view here. It's "Hellhound on My Trail" by Robert Johnson, recorded in Dallas, Texas on July 20, 1937. This song is considered one of "The 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century" by NPR. You can hear segments and commentary on the NPR Top 100 here.

Lord have mercy! That man defines the word "inappropriate." He is like one of those embarrassing relatives to whom one never wants to acknowledge kinship.
