Caption This


UPDATE: OK some context. Willie B had been sleeping soundly through Mitt’s –the Pope ain’t the boss of me–speech when he was awakened by my laughter atJeffrey’s take on Nagin’s explanation of his not voting…

In other words, he’s saying that while he doesn’t have the facts
available regarding this recent event from his own life, this one
report he didn’t read sure makes him suspicious that the vote he didn’t
cast may not have counted.

Then Willie B drifted off …


Only to be stirred once again by the commonly heard refrain in this house of…


…”What a Dick”

NEW ORLEANS – The Gulf Coast Housing Recovery Act guarantees the
redevelopment of the New Orleans public housing projects into
mixed-income communities and the return of thousands of working-class
families to the city, supporters say.

Despite overwhelming support, the bill was killed in committee by Sen. David Vitter, R-Metairie.

Politically, Vitter stands alone in his objections.

The GCHRA is supported by Sen. Mary Landrieu, Gov. Kathleen
Babineaux Blanco, Mayor C. Ray Nagin, the New Orleans City Council and
more than 100 business, faith-based, civic and human rights

Then it was back to snoozing for Willie B when suddenly he heard a familiar voice from the teevee say he had a plan to help Americans (supposedly) causing Willie to take cover


UPDATE 2: Initially Willie thought I had written down the wrong number…


…but then he quickly figured it out (because you know it does figure) and turns outWillie figured it right:

As he announced his plan to ease the mortgage crisis for consumers,
President Bush accidentally gave out the wrong phone number for the new
“Hope Now Hotline” set up by his administration.

UPDATE:Anyone who dialed 1-800-995-HOPE did not
reach the mortgage hotline but instead contacted the Freedom Christian
Academy — a Texas-based group that provides Christian education home
schooling material.

  1. “If you can’t keep your comments to yourself and let me sleep, I’m going to have to take away your TV and computer. Srsly.”

  2. As Atrios (or, rather Attaturk)said:
    “He should have said “1-800-382-5968″, still would have been wrong, but it would have been appropriate.”

  3. I’ll have to cast a vote for “We are NOT amused…”. Ya gotta love how a cat can give you the evil eye when you disturb their mid-day naps but they think nothing of crashing about the house having fun at 3:00 am. Willie has grown up so healthy looking…looks like this has been good for the both of you.

  4. Nope his tail isn’t as long as he is. But he has a very expressive tail. It’s always curly cuing all over

  5. willie swishing tail.
    how big is that big boy. vet confirmed basil is a big 14 1/2 lbs. he did not like having to go back for a urine sample. MEEEENOOOOOOOooooooooooooo!

  6. Willie B. is a very handsome lad, and rightly brooks no disturbance of his nightly naps (or daily naps either, if he’s anything like what passes for normal in catdom). My humble caption offering: My throne is become inadequate; provide new, improved throne now.
    Alternatively: WTF you wake me up for NOW?
