  •  Noonan on record as calling Obama "creepy" (4+ / 0-)

    So I guess it makes sense in her warped little mind that he could be sending out mental instructions to his minions via orbital mind control...or something.

      not like Hunter with his

      Obama is so evil that he doesn't even have to tell his subordinates to target his enemies, they just do it on based on evil osmosis.
      They didn't spend 6 months in Minion Technical School to be called "Suburdinates," thank you very much.

      There was only one joker in L.A. sensitive enough to wear that scent...and I had to find out who he was!

          i avoided her as much as possible.  ugh.

          now, for the "greatness" factor, singing our school song (unc-ch) with charlie kuralt as he was on his way to fill in for rather was brushing.  yep.  turns out, we shared many of the same profs in the theatre dept - he got them early, i got them the last years before retirement.

          and uncle walt - interviewed to be his personal assistant when he was retiring.  he asked if i could write letters in the style of a grumply old man.  i told him no, but i could write them in the style of an elegant gentleman.

          he grinned.

          interview went swimmingly - until he asked how long i could stay in the job.  told him i'd guarantee two years (i had my own goals) - he sighed and said he really needed someone who could stay until he finally retired.

          fool, i was.  i'd have still been working until 2009!  (nah, i still had/have my own muse to follow...)

          he was awesome, though.  really great human being.

          and... then, there was my absolute favorite - doug edwards.  the giant of a man that represented all that was news to me - when i met him and found out he was only 5'2" instead of 6'10" - he became my favorite "teddy bear" of a newscaster!

          he used to scold me for eating candy and coke and then he'd offer some of the apples and cheese he was snacking... loved him!
