Facebook Post of the Week

Cidu Bill on Feb 16th 2011

Monica Lewinsky will turn 38 years old this week. Can you believe it? Why, it seems like only yesterday she was crawling around the White House on her hands and knees, putting everything in her mouth. They grow up so fast, don’t they?

Key Question

Cidu Bill on Jan 20th 2009

It is being said, metaphorically, that George Bush turns over the keys to the White House to Barack Obama today. Which got me to wondering… Does anybody know offhand whether the White House door actually has a key? I have this mental image of Bill Clinton slipping out some night to hit McDonald’s, locking the door behind him.

I’m sure there’s always Secret Service agents standing guard at every entrance, but can the front door be locked if necessary?

Mishegoss

Cidu Bill on Nov 20th 2008

According to Newsweek magazine, one of Hillary Clinton’s staffers told one of the magazine’s reporters during the primaries that everybody after a certain point everybody was “fed up with the Bill Clinton mishegoss.”

This word has always been a part of my personal vocabulary, but does the quote make any sense to most of Newsweek’s audience? I’ve noticed that New York City-based magazines and (to an even larger extent) Hollywood screenwriters seem convinced that the entire country is familair with Yiddish (which I suppose, if these magazines and screenwriters keep using it, might eventually be the case).

Yes, in fact I have heard that Bush is a stickler for punctuality. What’s the joke here, though?
