BRANDOLAND: Talking to God...For You!

Monday, May 12, 2003

Quickly – saw this great message on a Wendy’s marquee in suburban Pittsburgh, PA this past weekend; “Now hiring – PREMIUM WAGE.”

Enticing. If you live in the Baldwin/Whitehall/Pleasant Hills area of Pittsburgh and are looking for a job, you need look no further.

I’ve been trying to get in touch with this particular Wendy’s to find out just how much the PREMIUM WAGE IS. When I find out, I’ll let you know.

Any guesses? $12? $13? $15.65? Don’t worry; I’m sure that “premium” means “more than enough.”

And, ah yes, read another classic “golf course moment” re: our dear, dear Prez yesterday. The following is an excerpt from the Guardian (5/11/03).

“Bush was playing golf for the second day on a private course close to the private residence where he is spending the weekend. The home is owned by Roland Betts, a Yale classmate and former business partner in the Texas Rangers baseball team.”

“The president expressed exasperation at several photographers whom he apparently thought had inched too close to his ball's potential trajectory as he prepared to swing.”

“You are one of my favorites AND I'D HATE TO STICK THIS TITLEST (GOLF BALL) BETWEEN YOUR EYES,'' he said to one. Photographers quickly scurried back and Bush completed his swing.,1282,-2664810,00.html

What a guy, what a dick, and what a classic frat guy line; I'd hate to stick this Titlest between your eyes. You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind, you don’t pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger, and you don’t mess around with George W. Bush when he’s on the golf course.

What’s that, dear reader? No, this is not an isolated incident. Don’t you remember this classic GW bit dated August 5, 2002?

“The intrusion of world affairs was evident yesterday when Bush was visiting the family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine. A suicide bombing in the Middle East prompted the president to briefly delay the start of his sunrise golf game with his father and gospel singer Michael W. Smith. Bush approached reporters to say he was distressed about the violence.

"I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers," said Bush, golf club in his hand. "Thank you. NOW WATCH THIS DRIVE."

Well, at least he’s consistent. An admirable quality, to say the least.


Do I need to comment on this?

Don’t think so.

More later,
