Monday Talk

The strategy defined for first 3 quarters failed badly; late in the 4th quarter a strategy (or a tactic) is arrived. The new “stratactictegy” would be to get physical, no, I am not taking about Sunday night NFL game between Jaguars and Steelers. I meant the current Republican presidential campaign. For next few weeks American public is in for an unprecedented Political Slander.

A proverb from my native language “Tamil” should be very apt here. Let me try a crude English translation, “If society splits, performing artists would be the beneficiaries”. Society is split as Democrats and Republicans [and 3rd kind is of course Lou Dobbs and other sundries] , beneficiary would be performing artists - John Stewart, Jay Leno, David Letterman and Saturday night live shows and many more. Do not miss their shows, it is quite awesome - Laugh Out Loud.

Did you notice, more than the word Economy we have been hearing the word “Maverick”. For benefit of Non-Mavericks, I would like to present the meaning of the world “Maverick” from Webster.com
Pronunciation: mav-rik
Function: noun
Etymology: Samuel A. Maverick †1870 American pioneer who did not brand his calves
Date: 1867
1: an unbranded range animal;
2: an independent individual who does not go along with a group or party

Wait a minute, an independent individual who does not go along with a group or party, but Senator McCain is supposed to run for the Republican Party and am just wondering on what basis they brand themselves to be Mavericks? They are affiliated to a party and its principles.
Dude! May be it is based on the 1st one in the list - NO STOP; I don’t want to be crude like Fox TV.

Yow! Non-Mavericks out there, the Maverick list grew by one, Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin added herself to the lists of Mavericks. Now non- Mavericks have to find someone as talented as her to offset the balance; Quick 1 cent suggestion - Big Moose from Archie comics? mm…Could be hunted

Good day.
