So let's sequester something today, on the sequester day: all of this  is fiction, but... keep it, don't lose.

1. The  CPAC organizer, the man  whose appearance reminds about the Planet of Apes praised CPAC for its diversity; they now have black young conservatives and Hispanics as  well. The Dems counteracted that  they had women on their side as well as British Royalty: all Dems wear skirts.

2.  Ah, e-mails.  There was an e-mail  brouhaha  between Woodword and WH; apparently  Woodward was upset  with the  'regret' word  and WH  played back the Edith Piaf's ' Je ne rien' which means  'I do not regret'. WH did not though restore Helen Thomas  back as a Dean of WH correspondents and did not apologize to her for what was done to her by Bush. Neither Woodward nor other MSM shills ever mentioned her in  the discussions.

3. Our Foreign policy is on the move! John Kerry  with his frozen custard  looks is  all over Syria and  Turkey.  Not that he knows much about those places  but it is a tradition among the US diplomats to  not know rather than to know. Then it is easier to help  the Syrian rebels to  maintain services destroyed by them and also to scold a Prime Minister of another country about his remarks on some political movement. I wonder what would Kerry say if a Turkish MP states  about  him that he is just a professional Dem- loser who got his perk at last?

4. Our President is again courageously snatching the defeat from the jaws of victory. He  lets  the GOP to run the whole show, even the  Violence  Against Women. It is not clear how, for instance the  state laws which target young women  who want to   do abortions in a medical facility are NOT the violence against women but  our President  is   mute on that.  In fact, he seems to had forgotten his English.

5. Control and Torture is a slogan if the times. We have new  gun- control  people. Joe Scarborough from Morning Joe  says two things at the same time: 'waterboard them as needed' and 'let's do background checking'.  Women around him, all of them, even the male ones- rejoice!

6.  Our Government seems to be  in a funny seizure: it loves gay people but prefers to  spy on them.  It wants the  Supreme Court to overturn the California  decision against gay marriages but is OK with  covert  electronic surveillance without a warrant. What it signals to gays is; folks, our love is overwhelming, we  love you all to death.

7. Education, ah!  We surely can predict the Medicare problem but as for going metric... we are safe; that will never happen. This country will  rather die than transfer from beloved inches to those  ugly French meters.   Maybe the only way to pursue us would be to measure money in meters. That will happen soon because our money  is going lower and lower in value.

8.Perpetuum mobile.  There is a rather big group  of  progressives who seem to engage in a perpetual   research on why GOP is so bad.   They write books on  that. The conclusion  is there in a plain sight-GOP is a party of  SOBs! But for some reason those researchers  just before reaching that conclusion- go back and start again.   The suspicion is  that those  studies are actually funded by GOP to  confuse the reader and make him think that GOP is very powerful.

9. Great Expectations. I have  heard that as books will be all transformed into an electronic format (only in  the US, the whole Humanity still reads, you know), there will be ways for the reader to change the narratives and characters, also to add/remove sections. We should expect steamy sex scenes between  Mr Dorsey and Mrs. Bennett, also there will be  a special porno section on altered bios.

10.Olld things die hard. In the end of the 18th Century  the great Russian writer Denis Fonvisin traveled through Western Europe.  Hiss statement about French lives until now..

- An average Frenchman is insane and to become sane would consider a gross case of unhappiness.

It looks that the above definition applies perfectly to  Americans now. They would be  happy to know that they follow  the  French on the beaten path of insanity.
