Golden Brodie listening for a “Song of Sixpence”

Is today a different day for the R presumptive candidate as speculation swirls around him…as reports snake around the governor’s mansion in the great state of Indiana…wanting the answer…who will be the R running mate..the vice president?… No one will know until the big announcement at 11:00am on Friday, July 15.

Brodie never misses an opportunity to share his polite and political observations.

Until then, let me recite for you a traditional, English nursery rhyme published in 1774.  Here goes:

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye.
Four and twenty blackbirds,
Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened,
The birds began to sing;
Wasn’t that a dainty dish,
To set before the king?
The king was in his counting house,
Counting out his money;
The queen was in the parlour,
Eating bread and honey.
The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose.

So, let’s see if the presumptive nominee gets the pundit birds to sing sweet songs of political harmony, should he choose the one pence.  The one pence who would bring experience and a conservative record…perhaps unification…Let’s see then…

There was such a commotion,
that little Jenny wren
Flew down into the garden,
and put it back again.

My golden self adores this nursery rhyme.  SheShe sings it to me on occasion.  Maybe, just maybe she’ll sing this tomorrow.

Golden Brodie questions a Political Flying Machine and Dressing?

The research speaks for itself regarding the intelligence of dogs… the vocabulary of a dog…no wonder I try so hard…a golden dog trying to understand politics.

According to learned psychologists and experts on dog intelligence, the average trained dog understands 160-165 words.  Super smart dogs have a vocabulary upward to 250 words…like that of a 2 1/2-year-old child.  So give me a break when I tell you that I remain confused with the political conversations and shared rhetoric on both sides as they race to the White House.   And by the way, my golden self is not ranked among the super smart and I am OK with that.

Written on refrigerator -Throw This?
A political pundit describing a recent speech given by the democratic candidate…”she threw the refrigerator at him”.

So, after the Bern Man and the Lady finally came together and announced their “togetherness”, she “threw the refrigerator”at the opposing sides presumptive candidate in her speech that sealed the deal between her and Sandy as they stood on the dias together.  I know this is a strong woman and hopefully we respect this about her… but it’s impossible, is it not, that she threw a kitchen appliance at anyone…?!?  In response… to her flying apparatus, the R guy did not even duck… He’s spending most of his time nailing down his vice presidential running mate…it’s said that…”He’s searching for the running mate who will help him to “change the dressing”.  So, here they both are now in the kitchen.  She’s supposedly throwing everything she can get her hands on at this one…while he, supposedly, is looking for his number two guy who’ll represent change, a change-over from the usual oil & vinegar slick to what?…thousand island perhaps??…he’s definitely not thinking green goddess for sure…and whatever his change over dressing is…it will be served on the side.

Brodie spins a political satire.

I do believe that I used up my entire word bank on this one.
