Houston, We Have A Problem
My Mom always told me that it's not nice to laugh at people when they're down. Well, I'm sorry, Mom, but this is pure comedy gold.
"President Barack Obama held a conference call Monday meant to whip up support for Obamacare, but many supporters who logged onto the Organizing for Action website to listen in experienced technical problems instead of the President's inspiring words.
One chatroom visitor asked if everyone was getting the 'reconnecting message'? Another complained, 'I can't hear any audio.' Still another screamed in all caps, 'WHERES THE SOUND YO?'
The most pointed chatroom posting reportedly read, 'Don’t tell me there are troubles with this live event like there were with the Obamacare website!'"
One could almost think it an SNL skit -- only with more "cowbell".

As a guest at a 2008 Thanksgiving dinner as Villa Cassandranita was heard to remark, "Thank God the adults are finally going to be in charge".
I can't wait for this year's dinner. I only hope I won't be such a colossal, arrogant jackass now that the tables are turned.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, are you going to do a Thanksgiving Recipe post again this year?
As to your *jackass* potential, I would guess that would depend upon the previous guests attitude upon arrival. I say, give 'em hell if they show up with the same attitude as the dude from the Ocare ads.
Buuuut, that's just me.
