Kailua brouhaha

I’m one of those people who believes that you spend as much as you damn well please on your vacation, so I’m not going to get too bent out of shape at the idea that the President and his family are spending some ginormous sum for a trip to Hawaii. It’s December, fercrissake; Hawaii can ask that kind of money this time of year, and there aren’t any beach houses that I know of in, say, Minot, North Dakota.

Hell, even Alaskans visit Hawaii in December:

Sarah Palin in Hawaii

Probably didn’t spend quite so much, but so what?

    Easier on the eyes, too.

    I heard some Zoomies say: “Why not Minot? Freezin’s the reason!”

    The only problem is that when I spend money it is my money and when he spends money it is my money

    I think he needs to go back home once in a while. I know it’s good for my soul to do that. It can be a therapeutic reality check.

    I’d be happy to borrow his Camp David digs for a week, even in December.

    Home to Indonesia, Kay? To his Muslim roots and the imams who formed him?

    Maybe not. But therein lies the rub. “Home” is a place that has a call on you, peopled by persons to whom you owe something. To Barack Hussein Obama, there is no “home” as most of us understand the concept. In his mind, he stands alone and apart, a singular expression of the human ideal. The world is his oyster, and he intends to eat it all.

    Meh. In the larger scheme of things, only Republicans aren’t allowed vacations. You can look it up.

    That’s about the size of it, the paparazzi can hound her, ironically because she didn’t vacation in a private compound. He can golf for hours, till the press
    get tired of his swing
