Hello from the RNC!! I wish! Hello from my living room couch where I am firmly in love with a little boy named Trig and totally in awe of his momma. Watching the RNC tonight, I began thinking about my political past. There was this one time when I had a chance to shake hands with President Bush and have him hold Reagan for a photo op. What did I do? I went to the local political rally to hear him speak where I was certain I’d have a better chance of really seeing him. Whatever. I don’t think about that too much or I cry.
So this week’s Story Time is as close as this woman gets to politics. Here’s what you do.
- Look at the photo.
- Be in awe for just one second. Don’t spit at your computer if you’re not though.
- Leave a comment with a caption or story about the photo.
- I’ll vote you President of the Not So SAHM fan club!
If you need help, that’s Sean Hannity. Now go leave a comment telling me what’s going on!
Now for last week’s gem, I kind of took a bye. BUT it was for a great cause (wink). If you can’t remember I’ll remind you:
It’s the Best Posts of the Week blog! Your job is to go over there and let me know your best/favorite/whatever you want to call it post of the week. I’ll get them all consolidated and linked up for a Saturday showing. Sounds great, no? Last week was a great showing. There were just under 30 postings listed!

Holy crap! I’m jealous! Sarah Palin was amazing tonight, and I’m so excited for November!
“Vicki, you’re a great American!”
OK, see…I know this story…I even know Reagan’s response and how much she impressed Hannity. So I can’t play along…it would be cheating.
And Wooooooooooooooooooooooo doggie…I love SP even more. Oh yes, I do. And whenever anyone gets all in my face and says, “Whatever, you didn’t even know who she was ’til last Friday!” I’m all huffy and respond, “There’s where you’re wrong–’cause my friend Vicki clued me in months ago…MONTHS AGO…and I’ve been riding that wave ever since.”
I’m so glad I have your expertise in these areas.
I want to be SP’s friend. Scotty wants to marry her. I’d totally allow it.
I was taught if I have nothing nice to say, say nothing. So I am staying mum…and that’s ok. 🙂
I’ll have to agree with Melisa 🙂
I think Sarah was TOTALLY upstaged by her sweet little girl smoothing that baby’s hair by licking her hand! She had some great zingers re the opposition too (I loved the styrofoam pillars carried back to some movie set line! LOL)
I am really torn-I love what she stands for and that she has actually MADE CHANGE instead of talking about it and she would really shake up that old boy network–Obama’s running mate IS an old boy! That baby needs a LOT more Mommying than a VP can give him though. Should she set aside what is best for him for the good of the country?
ooops! forgot my caption…. “so tell me ma’am…exactly HOW disapointed are you that the President did not kiss your baby…will this change the way you vote? Are you planning to sue for emotional distress now that your baby has been deemed “unkissable”?”
(you KNOW I have to go as far from what looks like the likely truth as I can 😉 )
all right, don’t cop out just because you don’t like who’s in the picture! I’m sure you could think of hundreds of things you’d *like* for him to say 😉
and thanks Dandelionmom for leaving a caption!
Okay, Okay, Vicky – here you go. You asked for it:
What he is probably saying:
“What’s your name little girl? Reagan? Oh, good. That is a good strong conservative name. I’m glad to know you are being brought up right – to love America – not hate this great country of ours like all of those left-wing, nut job, liberals out there. Hop on board the Stop the Crazy Extremist Muslim Terrorist Obama Train, little girl. Oh – and praise God our heavenly father and Bush.” **Terrorist Fist Bumps the little girl**
What he should be saying:
“Listeners – I’ve seen the light. I am announcing – in front of this beautiful little girl, her mom, and God – that I can no longer support the harm that has been done to this great country of ours during the past administration. Join me in supporting Barack Obama – the next President of the United States” **fist bump b/c we’re cool like that**
Oh – and I’m about to put up a post over at my little blog for you 😉
“Honey, is your neck alright? Surely you have whiplash by now, what with the way all these people have been calling “Reagan!”
(Best I can do. 🙂 What I’d want to say about Hannity shouldn’t be published on a family blog!)
Hi and thanks for visiting Hungary with me again. I am sad to say they don’t have Wendy’s anymore… it has been gone for 6 years now. So sad!!! And they did have Dunkin Doughnuts, but no longer and they never had Krispy Kreme… that would be a dream. We did get Subway recently, but I am not a HUGE fan. Restaurants are reasonable here but not as cheap as they were… it has doubled in price but it is still cheaper than nice restaurants in America. The dollar used to be 300 forint to the dollar and now it is at 145 and dropping. It is so expensive for everything now! UGH. Thanks again for stopping by!
She took cheap shots at Obama. It felt good, but McCane/Palin ticket will not make this country better for our children. She is a hockey mom, and she understands the problems of common people, but understanding the problem is not the same as having the skills to solve them. I understand that I get UTI infections a lot, but I don’t have the skills to solve them. Only a doctor can do that.
Personally, I am no fan of Obama, but among the two people, I have to pick the lesser evil. And for my country and the sake of my children’s future, I will disregard the instant gratification that I got from Palin’s speech, and vote for Obama.
Reagan is saying, “Thanks for chatting with us Sean, its an honor to meet another true patriot and remember; the impression people have that Bush-hate is about Bush is totally bogus, in fact, the haters hate America. The America our founders built and our troops defend and us who are pro-freedom, pro-life, pro-gun, anti-tax, anti-spending and anti-big government welfare states. Later dude.”
