This will be the last Harry Reid post before I take vacation.

Well maybe! It depends on whether he opens his mouth again before then. This exchange is a few days old, but too good to pass up.

Quick Loop Quiz! When is a lectern a car, a chair and a BlackBerry?

Answer: When Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) gives a late-night, way-too-late-night speech on immigration on the Senate floor Thursday.

"Mr. President, no matter how many times I call this lectern a car, it does not matter, this is not a car," Reid said. "This is a lectern, used here in the Senate for us to put our papers on and deliver a speech. This is not a car. If I come to the Senate floor and, day after day, hour after hour, call this a car, it is not a car. It is a lectern. If I come to this Senate floor day after day and say what the Democrats have done is unusual, unwarranted, unbelievable, it is wrong, it is as wrong as this lectern being called a car.

". . . The leader and I have gone back and forth so many times today that we are beating paths to our offices. There is no need that we -- I apologize to the chair and to Senator Byrd. I hope he's not watching. My BlackBerry. It went off a couple times, and I lost my concentration. I hope this legislation will move forward tomorrow. I know people feel that this lectern is a chair, but it is not. This is the Senate."

Then he sat down and drove off.

Comments:
reid is such a retard. i used to live in vegas and i couldn't stand him and his stupid ideas then. that was before he was a "bigshot" (bigmouth)in the senate.
 
The Blackberry thing was very funny live. He was trying to be serious and then the blackberry went off and he hit ignore, crisis averted. He starts up again, and it went off again and again. It was very comical when you add the whole sorry my blackberry went off admission (he could have played it off on TV it looked like the receiver to the microphone). All that was missing was the presiding President telling him "Ok bring it up here, you know the rules about it going off during a session. Parent Conference before you are able to get it back"
 
RW,

We don't let you take a vacation.

If you insist, are you leaving in your car or your lectern? Looking at the price of gasoline, you'd better take the lectern. It gets better mileage, but the scenery gets a little dull.
 
Dusty,

I think I should take the lectern, it seems very versatile. Wait until I tell my wife it's a hotel room.
 
RW,

Take the blackberry. Maybe she won't notice.

Have fun.
 
RW,

Have a great vacation! Hopefully MLs blog won't totally disintegrate in your absence.
 
Dusty & Buy Danish,

My impending vacation is in the abstract stage right now while I finish up some loose ends closing my company.

ANYONE needing a person with strong technical telecom skills as well as the added benefit of that person being a web savvy smart ass, please let me know.

I can be reached by leaving an email here or if the message is urgent send a pina colada to Indian Rocks Beach.
 
RW, I'm not sure I like the sound of this. Worry, worry!

Whatever, Captain Beyond is always a winner!

Cheers!
 
Dusty,

It's not as bad as it may sound. I have been maintaining discontinued products from Siemens and a few others for several years. I don't have any employees so it's a pretty clean break.

I was going to migrate into Nortel equipment, but the telecom business has splintered into so many different open-architecture products that it isn't practical to spend the money to stock parts for any one product with a company as small as mine.
 
RW,

Sounds like brainy stuff to me.

If you say things are OK, than I say OK too.

Don't forget us bloggers. As BD said, we don't want to "disintegrate".

I'd send you a pina colada but all I have is u-no-wht. Take care.
 
You're a good guy RW, and you deserve the break.

Have a fun time working on your tan lines, and I hope to see more of your fine blog (updated, of course!) when you get back!

Hasta la vista!
 
Ok, my homeboy is an idiot.

I submit the following:

In the next election we should have an option to fire all of them. Start over with new people.
Only people who have served in the military and new to the political arena can be elected. Troops returning from Iraq or Afganistan will automatically be registered to run.
 
Vacation? WHAT vacation?? Where the hell do you think you're going?!
 
sorry.
 
Nicole,

I can't take the pressure of trying to keep up with your blog!


devil doll,

What's up darlin'? Or don't I have to call you that?
 
i am so ashamed of myself for my behavior last week. i have never felt so embarrassed. i could blame it on the alcohol or my being alone - but there is no excuse.

i was a mean, nasty little b****. that really isn't the real me. i always talk big on these sites about being personable and inclusive. i feel like such a hypocrite.

i don't know why i said those things. i woke up sunday morning and realized that dusty's comments could have been taken two ways. i think i was wrong. i started to cry. i am such a fool.

i told my girlfriend about it when she got home and she said, "maybe you need to grow up when you're on the internet." i offended the people i like on the computer and i dissapointed the love of my life by drinking too much and making an idiot of myself.

i'm too embarrassed to read any comments left about my last episode. i realize i was probably slammed and rightfully so. i don't need to blog until i'm ready to show some maturity. i'm starting to tear up again.

rw, i don't know if dusty will ever come back again - i don't blame her if she doesn't. if she does, will you maybe hint around at what kinds of causes she supports? i'd like to make a small donation to something with dusty's name. she doesn't have to know. i know she's kind of conservative and i can't donate to the rnc or anything, but maybe a veteran's group or cancer society. maybe i should just pick an iraq veteran's group.

i feel about two inches small. last week i became everything i hate - intolerant, rude, and drunk. i need some karmic balance.

i'm so sorry for disrespecting your site. i know simple apologies don't cut it. i know the internet is just some big wasteland of ideas and anonymity - but i still feel accountable. i guess that's something.

Sarah,

Dusty is a great person and I don't think you have anything to worry about from anyone here. They're certainly not going to be harder on you than you just were on yourself.

I think you may want to read the comments that followed and see what I'm talking about. Hopefully Dusty will check in and you guys can talk. I'm getting out of here in a few days, but you can feel free to talk here.

RW,

If you can think of anything that should be urgent while you're on vacation let me know, because I'd love to send you a pitcher of pina coladas.

I'll just check the skyline periodically for smoke signals.
 
Buy Danish,

One thing I love about you is that you always serve drinks by the pitcher!

I actually didn't mean for this Harry Reid post to make it sound like I was walking out the door. I just meant I wasn't planning to pick on him anymore until I got back.
 
RW,

It looks like Bush has taken over the "pick on Harry Reid" role for awhile, so you can bask in the sun free of that nagging feeling that you have a duty to fulfill.
 
hey baby, i know you've gone to sleep for the night. i wish i could change things. i know you've been checkin' this site for comments about me. i was wrong to lie to you - i know it. it won't happen again - there's no one else for me but you. by best words come from songs, so here's tom waits:

"You know she thrills me with all her charms
When I'm wrapped up in my baby's arms
My little girl gives me everything
I know that some day she'll wear my ring
So don't bother me, I ain't got no time
I'm on my way to see that girl of mine
`Cause nothing matters in this whole wide world
When you're in love with a [san fran] girl."

there's nothin else i can do or say. baby, i miss you. i can't humiliate myself any further.
 
Good heavens, devil doll, quit frettin'. It was just a misunderstanding. Don't worry about it. And keep posting. Who else knows all those funny little songs? Not me. I'm still stuck on that good old Gershwin stuff.

We have to keep an eye on RW. He's still trying to take a vacation. Might get to liking it what with Danish sending him pitchers of pina colados. Might even forget us (even though we are unforgetable!) Can't have THAT.

So cheers! and happy Easter!

Dusty
 
"Pressure" is for weaklings, RW. The strong step up to the plate and "handle they bidness!"

(If you need me to translate those last three words, just drop me a line here.)
 
Devil Doll:

If you were as bad a person as you mistakenly think you are, you wouldn't care now would you? I sneak over and read you sometimes and I think you're fun. So is Dusty, so like she said, don't be so hard on yourself.

RW:

If you can expand on what your expertise covers, I may be able to send something your way. I'll go through e-mail like you suggested.
Have a great vacation. You certainly deserve it. I think you are one of those "good guys".
 
Nicole,

I'd never have taken you for a pimp. I'm shocked, shocked!
 
OO,

The short answer is that I maintain telephone and voice mail systems for medium to large companies. I have a good bit of experience with government operations around here. For several years I maintained all the systems for the City of Roswell and the Corporations division at the Secretary of State's office.

A few years ago I installed the system at the Clayton County DA's office over in your neck of the woods.

I wouldn't mind working maintenance and moves/adds/changes on a contract basis, but I'm leaning more to going full time with someone in the telephone business so I can afford to keep up with the progress as everything becomes more internet based. I'm a great dabbler, but it's hard to quantify that to someone that doesn't know me.

Thanks for keeping me in mind!
 
O.K. RW, I think I've got an understanding. Full-time? So anything over would be supplemental?

Never mind, go on vacation, I'll be thinking.
