"Once wasers." -- it's my term for famous, important people who have become "has beens."
Show biz has beens are fun to keep track of. Like Nick Nolte, when he dropped out of sight. Like Britney Spears -- she certainly has had some wild ups and downs.
Dick Cheney gets the Em prize for VIP "once-wasers." And George W Bush gets 2nd prize.
McCain's a runner up. He talks as if he is an authority on war and
peace, along with Sarah Palin who is still great looking, and seductively
nasty. Golly, I can hardly wait for the day when John Boehner, who's
affecting every single day of what isn't happening in America, becomes a once waser.
Names-names don't go away. Once we learn 'em, they're back again another day -- like Trump, a once waser with money, and ambitions of a guy who thinks he could be elected the president. Is New Jersey's Christie a once waser? Will he rise again? Anthony Weiner is a once waser, I just hope his wife Huma isn't.
Matthews, senior reporter on MSNBC, keeps me up-to-date with his
nightly "Hardball" show. He rebroadcast Dick Cheney's recent advice to
President Obama, calling O "our weak president." Golly, I don't want to
hear Cheney's out-of-date opinions, and pokes at our president, who is
fighting -- with a great deal of grace and strength -- will continue to
be fighting -- enormous race prejudice.
Cheney's words, brain-washed us before. Even though people don't believe
Cheney or trust him, his words sink in and sit in our heads. "Weak"
President" gets people wondering -- tasting it, repeating "weak
president" till it sticks.
Like the words that
Boehner and Congress keep repeating -- "Obama care is bad, health care
doesn't work." It's brain-washed some of us who voted for Obama, and
believed in Obama. Now we nod our heads silently, and find truth in
"weak President," and let it slow down the fantastic progress we made
when we elected him.
Am I a once waser? Are you a once
waser? Are we clinging to the days when we voted for Obama because --
wow, a black president was a giant step, a way to end race prejudice?
has-been Nick Nolte looks great now, and is back in the world again;
and Britney's comeback has turned her into an eloquent interesting
Once wasers or not, we gotta shape
up -- write, talk, post praiseful words for O whenever they occur to us
-- pile on praise -- support the black guy in the White House who's won
the war against prejudice by being there, and applaud with words his
decisions -- his dealing with unsolvable national and international
issues with strong wisdom.
Loud and clear and often, let's drown out the old fogey Cheney-ish naysayers.
