President McKinley, Vice President Tyler, King Vidor, Queen Latifah, Duke Ellington, Earl Warren, Baron Trump, Judge Reinhold, ladies and gentlemen and others: this is a day that will live in infamy. Today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.
Four score and seven years ago I was born in the house my father built, although I can’t recall the address. You may have gathered that an iron curtain has descended upon my brain. The mystic chords of my memory are on the fritz and then some. I have slipped the surly bonds of sanity. Old soldiers never die, they just fade away.....but don’t cry for me, Argentina. Ich bin ein Hamburger..........
I will little note nor long remember what I say here. In fact I’ve
already forgotten what I’m saying now and what I’ll say next..........Since my mind has gone totally blank, I have nothing to offer but Blood,
Sweat and Tears. Not to mention the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, the
Nicholas Brothers, the Casa Loma Orchestra, and the Beach Boys...........
I admit it, my fellow Belgians. I am not playing with a full deck. The
lights are on but nobody’s home. The elevator is no longer going to the
top floor, and it was never a particularly tall building to begin with.................
Now, you may want to know whether or not your new President is a crook. Well, I am
a crook. Let every nation know that I will oppose any friend and
support any foe to assure their survival and success, provided one of my
relatives gets a piece of the action. Ask not what your country can do
for you – ask what your new president can do for Burisma.
Mr. Gorbachev, give me liberty or give me… you know the, you know the thing!........To Read More...
