Manolo at the Politics Central

Manolo says, the Manolo’s latest effort for the Politics Central is now available for the reading.

Manolo says, it is the well-known and widely admired policy of the Manolo to generally ignore the risible antics of the American political classes.

This it is not simply because the Manolo has the more important things to do with his time, such as wonder what has happened to his funky little fashion troll, but also because unmannerly behavior and rudeness of any sort are anathema to the Manolo.

Yet, there are the instances when the behavior of one politician or the other becomes so egregious that even the Manolo cannot happily ignore it.

Such is the case with the actions of the now-notorious congressional dumb-bell, Mark Foley, who was revealed this past week as having sent the lurid emails to the supple young pageboy, emails in which he apparently proposed acting out the key scenes to the 1987 movie the Dirty Dancing, with Foley offering to take the role played by the Patrick Swayze, with all of the star’s signature moisture.

    If you are a politician you shouldn’t drink and dive, and then write about it on the ‘net.

    Having read the article in its entirety, Miss J again applauds The Manolo for his wit and verbal genius. The final link is especially on the mark.

    Twistygirl has not had the opportunity to yet read Holy-Moley-Foley’s emails offering to be Patrick Swayze, but she is very curious to know if he swaggeringly wrote to said page, “nobody puts Pagie in the corner.”

    You are certainly a bastion of fairness, to gently poke fun at both sides of the aisle on this issue. Bravo, Manolo!

    This may well be your finest writing. Of many. Awesome.

    Ah, behold the power of restraint. What a jewel in these overwrought days.
