      A flippin’ 30 minutes early AAmom – writing a strongly worded letter of complaint as we speak!

      Forward to 2:45 in the video in the post and you’ll see it all.

        Wouldn’t mind adding a word or two to that strongly worded complaint, CC! :( I have been sitting here, fiddling around on the CIA twitter page to kill time – I could have been HERE!

          Saw you are writing a letter of complaint above and wouldn’t mind adding my 5c worth! I feel partially cheated!
          :) OTOH, good old CC, you saved the evening by pointing us to the recording. Thank you kindly, (in the words of a mutual friend) Great Diva of Blogdom, Empress of TODsylvania, Queen Bee Prima-Bloggah-Diva! We <3 <3 you for your thorough coverage.

    I hope someone told Sarah Palin that there are 54 countries in the continent of Africa, and that Africa is not a country.

    Here’s a clip?

      Mayor Bloomberg!
      Thank you for not showing his face on this video.
      That little man irks me to the highest irkability.
      Very close to Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump, Chris Christy, Corey Booker, GWB, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Hillary and Bill……..
      Every day this list grows and grows.
      These are the ones still living or for a better use of words, “walking dead” as far as irking the hell out of me.
      If Mayor Bloomberg even thinks about running for presidency, I might just think about moving to Canada or Cuba.
      I am so serious!

    My late Aunt was a Peace Corp Country Director for Botswana back in the 80s. My cousin met his wife there.

    It’s about time.

      Jovie, you posted the answer a couple of days ago (via @thinkprogress) and the news wasn’t good — tundra leaking methane because temps in Siberia have been 9 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than usual and that area is rich with natural gas. If methane starts spewing an even more accelerated amount of carbon into the atmosphere, then Alaska is going to feel more like Panama than the arctic soon.

    You know what? I’m coming to the conclusion that we’ve gotten all that we are going to get from this dinner, except maybe the final song (like the other night with Katy P). I may be proved wrong, but I’m no longer hopeful.
