Points to ponder.
Liz. Sister Liz Cheney is back in the news beating her drum of disdain for our former President. Of the belief that he was the one who incited the January 6 Capitol insurrection, she has proclaimed, “I think what Donald Trump did is the most dangerous thing, the most egregious violation of an oath of office of any president in our history.” Listen, Lizzie, I agree that it’s pretty bad. But honestly, I think the most egregious thing he ever did as President was trying to pass off a Slovakian hooker as a First Lady. Amen?
Lilibet. There has been birth in the extended Windsor royal family. Red-headed (step) child Prince Harry and his lovely wife have welcomed their second child, a little girl, who is eighth in line to the throne. Eighth. 8. I pray she doesn’t hold her breath for a crown, but I digress. In naming the child “Lilibet Diana,” Mr. and Mrs. Sussex have honored the child’s great-grandmother and grandmother on her father’s side. Although I prefer to refer to Queen Elizabeth as “Betty Windsor,” her childhood nickname was “Lilibet.” Of course, the name Diana honors the revered Princess Diana, Harry’s precious mother and thorn in her mother-in-law’s crown. H&M trying to curry favor with Betty seems a losing battle in light of recent squabbles. “Dear Grandma, we’re naming our child after you (in a VERY informal and unroyal manner) and pairing it with a name so near and dear to your heart.” Right…….
Liftoff. Obnoxious billionaires do extreme things. Like designing a rocket for space travel which looks oddly metaphoric for something which may have had trouble lifting on its own, much less shooting anywhere. To wit, have you seen this headline? “Jeff Bezos to Be Shot Into Space” This begs the question, will his ex-wife be pulling the trigger?
