RADIO GA-GA

Well, after weeks of being glued to the television and radio, I can't stand it any more. I don't know why everyone is making such a big to-do out of everything. Olmert wants to set up a committee that is going to make him look good...of course he wants that. Our President is still screaming, 'Not me, it was't me!' And all the talking heads are busy talking, talking, talking.

Years and years ago, when I was still in college,I used to come home at night and together with my friends we would gather around our television with the folks and spend an envening talking, laughing...you know, just having fun.

It was the during the Profumo Scandal. For those of you who are too young to remember, here is the shortened version. John Dennis Profumo was then Secretary of War. Married to the film star Valerie Hobson they mingled with all the 'who's who'of British society.

What the commoners didn't know, was that Mr. High Society was also fiddling around with a lady named Christine Keeler. Together with her friend Mandy Rice-Davies the women partied their way up and into...you guessed it...Profumo's group of friends.

Now no one, except maybe Mrs. Profumo, cared that our hero couldn't keep his zipper zipped, but then he made a big mistake. He lied to the House of Commons. VEY. In March 1963 he told them that 'nope, not me'.

Do you remember the program "THAT WAS THE WEEK THAT WAS"? They too got a whiff of the affair and spoofed their British cousin. "See him in the House of Commons/Making laws to put the blame/While the object of his passion/Walks the streets to hide her shame."

Oh-Oh!

Our playboy went back before the House ten weeks after he said his 'not me' speech and had to admit that 'with deep remorse' he had misled the House and would resign.

Now the story gets even more interesting. Turns out that our favourite playgirl wasn't exactly honest with our hero. If one fat fish was good, then two would be even better. Yup our little Christine had another lover. But not just any lover. She was also fiddling with Eugene Ivanov. Ivanov? You mean? Yes, dear readers. Ivanov was the naval attache at the Soviet Embassy.Tvoyu mat!!! (a not nice way of saying oy vey).

Now back to all of us sitting in front of the television. All the talking heads were busy doing what they knew best. Suddenly they turned to the audience and asked if anyone had anything to say.

A little man got up and made his way to the microphone. And this is what he said...
"If he did it, what he done it...then he shoulda get it, what he got it!"

That was it. The audience roared. We at home roared. The talking heads roared. And we all went to a commercial.

So back to our own government officials. I hope you get it what you should get it cuz you done it what you done it.

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.
