It's hot in Bend with 90-degree temps forecast through next week.
Evidently, it's hot all over the country because people are doing some stupid things.
In Nebraska, a 4th of July parade had a float that featured an outhouse with the words: "Obama Presidential Library." Apparently, it was a big hit there.
A New York newspaper ran an op-ed column with the headline: "The Nigger in the White House."
The column, while supportive of President Obama, attracted scores of comments from various websites that defended the headline as largely accurate.
These incidents come on the heels of a poll that says President Obama is the worst president since World War II.
Of course, the joke is that these poll respondents also blame President Obama for starting WWII.
After House Speaker John Boehner threatened to sue President Obama, impeachment fever has swept the teabagging landscape. Of course, talk of President Obama's impeachment began before he even took office years ago.
This week, though, the most powerful Republican woman, Sarah Palin, now calls for President Obama's impeachment.
The real joke here is that Palin still commands respect among teabaggers and GOPers alike.
The GOP in Montana and South Dakota are now calling for President Obama's impeachment.
Republicans are upset about a host of things like Benghazi, which so upsets them, that they can't even locate it on a map.
They also have their panties in a wad over President Obama's and use of executive orders. Nevermind, that Obama has used this tactic far less than any president of the 20th century.
GOP Lawmakers also allege his "lawlessness" in not enforcing our immigration laws. Evidently, President Obama is enforcing the 2008 immigration law, which passed with substantial bipartisan support and was eagerly signed by President Bush.
Republicans love saying that President Obama is a "feckless" president and, at the same time, rail against him for being dictatorial.
Gee, is he weak or strong? Make up your mind.
Republicans need their base of racists to come out and vote this fall if they hope to retake the Senate. They'll resort to any tactic to get out this vote.
Good luck with that "Southern strategy."
That dog will no longer hunt.
