I'm Having Company! Yes Indeedy....

I got so excited yesterday just reading the subject of this email--to me, it's just FUN when I read this:

We're Coming to Missouri!

Nuh uhh! Who? Who's coming?! OMG OMG my mind is racing all over the place. Where will they stay? What can we find to do together? Will they bring the children--and if so, do they need Niki or Cody to babysit or shall we do family only things? Allergies? How about preferences--out to eat, in to eat? Typing, how long will they be in Missouri--am I going to need to take a few days off work? Gosh there's a lot of planning that goes into this headline--long before I even get to the heart of the message.

Ahhh, it's Hillary. Hillary is coming! Well, not Hillary herself, but Hillary's people. Here's the deal--she's sending her campaign staff to train people like me. She needs me. She even said so. See? Looky right here:

You're an important part of this campaign. And these trainings are a great way to get started organizing. I hope you can make it. I know Hillary can count on you. Thank you for all your support. Sincerely, Guy Cecil National Political and Field Director P.S. Here are the details on the Kansas City Training:

It goes on with the boring details, but you get the idea. I'm thinking, thinking, thinking--I'm an overworked defeated frazzled messorganizing machine! I need something to bring to the table....well, there's this:

Senator Barack Hussein Obama refusing to hold his hand over his heart AND refusing to say the Pledge of Allegiance.

This will help. But I can do better, I know I can! What, though? What? Hillary needs me, Bill's boyish and good-natured charm haunts me in my dreams....he'll need me too. Wait....I got this the other day......

I'm all about fairness, so in all fairness, you can click here and find a rundown of explainations. Decide for yourself, that's the way it should be! And when you consider they've been around a ton more people than the average bear, of course there'll be bigger death tolls than we see in our regular cookie-baking lives. But the ages and the manners of death, it's a freaking whole lottalittle alarming. That's all I'm saying....

Gosh I hope I win that receipt scanner/organizer. If I win...if I do, I'm sooo bringing that with me--I think she needs me!

Gotta run--I'm going down to the local restaurant here in town. I hear they're hiring dishwashers. And while dishwashers make the restaurant world go round, I also hear they get paid big. BIG. Then I'm off to train. After all, I am a one very slightly over-sarcastic Midwestern momma bear who is very afraid of what will happen if I don't speak up while I still can important part of this campaign!

Believe it or not - I think you are so da*n cute and special that you deserve another award. I think this one is extra special though... check it out on my blog.

I think what Hilary really needs is a personalized clipboard and some scrapbooking materials.

Stacey said...

Marie! I was just over to Memarie Lane! You're clever--see? You didn't enter for reason, you entered with purpose! Well done.

Girl Gone Wild - BibleStyle said...

GIRL! You better be careful! Before you know it, your name will be on the bottom of that list:

36- *Stacey aka The Gidge* - Found tied and mouth taped shut by a Hillary '08 bumper sticker, at the bottom of a coal mine shaft. (!!!!)

Kelly said...

Ha! Love your view on Hillary, but I have to tell you, my very republican, Marine father, taught me to stand with my hands crossed in front of me or behind me during the pledge. I NEVER stand and put my hand over my heart. There are a bazillion other things that make one unpatriotic.Not voting would be first on my list.

Stacey said...

Ahhh but my dear liberal friend Kelly, he refused to recite the pledge. Talk to me!

Marie said...

I am curious about the hand placement. I know there are a lot of misunderstandings about such things. For example, Brad was in the Army for 8 years and had to learn alot about how to handle the flag. One thing he learned is that the flag hung upside-down is a sign of distress. After 9/11 he displayed an upside-down flag to show his solidarity with the distress our country faced, and he got ripped several new holes by many ignoramuses. Don't worry, Brad is a master debater (ahem) and handles himself very well in such situations.

I can imagine plenty of legitimate reasons not to recite the pledge, one being it's origins in McCarthyism.
