The other night Bossy was in a bar, which should surprise her council not at all, except to say she missed Barack O’Boyfriend’s first State of the Union address.
Lucky for Bossy her cable service provider invented a little thing called DVR, and here’s how it works: there’s this button and, yeah.
So Bossy was able to watch the State of the Union one day after it aired, and Bossy offers this delayed review: Barack O’Boyfriend you have reinvigorated Bossy’s interest in politics through your calm bipartisan argument and compassionate eloquence and refined stature.
It also doesn’t hurt that you always look as though you just finished eating a grape popsicle.
Bossy could go on about Barack O’Boyfriend’s smartness, and how you could hear a pin drop for the last five minutes of his address, and how the citizenry owes it to the future of this county to recommit to involvement on a local and international level, but instead Bossy wants to talk about this:
When Bossy was a toddler she had a 40-year-old boyfriend who taught her the art of exaggeration when blogging. And when this 30-year-old boyfriend was done with that task, he taught young Bossy that one must always train their eye on Larry when watching The Three Stooges. This
29-year-old boyfriend pointed out that although the other two Stooges were often given more to do in a scene, it was Larry who was worth watching because he was completely out of his mind.
In keeping with this theory, Bossy gives you her:
She’s Nancy Pelosi, and she’s Speaker of the House of Representatives. She has the distinction of being the first woman to serve as Speaker of the House. She is also the first Italian-American to serve as Speaker, and the first Californian — and by coincidence the first crazy Italian-American California woman.

carson saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 8:36 am
I mourn the fact that Bossy is not a contender for best writing of a weblog or best humor weblog in that Bloggie contest. Where’s the justice?
Cece saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:08 am
Loved your post! you and the 2 stooges and Nancy P. got me laughing at this unglodly morning hour! YOU ROCK!
Your boyfriend did a great job. Let us hope it rallied the public!
Cece saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:09 am
Just an FYI the machine is calulating the time of the post wrong . It is 6am here. LOL.
MidLifeMama saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:41 am
Between Nancy and Joe Biden making faces, and the entire supreme court scowling and all the republicans not clapping and looking all “says YOU” I almost missed a good part of what was actually SAID. Then the president threatened to put Congress in a time out if they didn’t learn to play well together and get him a frick frackin’ health care bill he could live with and I was back on track. All in all a very entertaining speech!
rockle saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:41 am
dude … jill biden is a BABE and in that picture she looks like linda evans. joe biden is a lucky, lucky, looney little man.
bobbie saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:45 am
I commented to my husband that Pelosi and Biden looked like characters from Saturday Night Live.
Meg saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:54 am
The last address to congress, Nancy was sucking on Tic Tacs or Certs or something… it was so obvious. This time, someone must have tipped her off because I was watchin’ for it… but didn’t see it.
Carol M saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:57 am
I was so distracted by the faces that crazy lady was making during the speech. Kept waiting for a mint to come popping out of her mouth. Or maybe the numbness from her botox was starting to wear off in a very peculiar way.
dgm saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:00 am
I would watch Larry over Nancy any day.
Ain't Miss-Beehaven saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:01 am
My husband said we should not have to look at the 2 of them while listening to Mr.President – I reminded him that they were there for entertainment purposes!
Audubon Ron saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:08 am
Okay, now you went and did it and completely offended me Miss. Bossy. I have a crush on Nancy Pelosi, really bad. I want to make her do things. Did I ever happen to mention that I and Larry are related?
21st Century Housewife saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:15 am
I was actually kind of impressed that she could make the ludicrous faces, what with the botox and all.
I mean, dang! She makes Joe Biden look statesmanlike!
Who Dat saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:15 am
I just think it’s funny you related all 3 of them to the 3 stooges. hee hee
Junebug saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:21 am
Did you catch it when Nancy picked her teeth? Gah! I don’t like having to look at them behind the President. Very distracting. And the Supreme Court looked like they were props. Stiff as a board, except for Alito.
sherry saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:49 am
I didn’t notice her face at all – I was riveted by those pretty, pretty pearls! Bet she could pawn them to balance California’s budget…
William saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:04 am
Jill Bidens boobs could not dsitract me from the two boobs behind Obama.
Dawn in Austin saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:17 am
Thanks Bossy, for hitting all the high points of the speech. Now I don’t have to watch it. I much prefer the summarization.
Rosie saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:18 am
That’s not Jill Biden–that’s Krystal Carrington.
Jodi Anderson saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:38 am
Oh! Ohohohohoh! I watched this.
I used the DVR’s rewind feature repeatedly to see the military so NOT clap when Obama mentioned gays being able to serve openly in the military.
We also rewinded the part where Biden almost claps too soon because my daughter thinks that Biden has spice-melange eyes and I think she has a grandpa complex.
Lorrie saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:39 am
Barack Obama need to go away – how can you even consider him as a boyfried? Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad!!!
Jodi Anderson saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:46 am
P.S. I will NEVER get the image of him having a grape popsicle before every speech out of my head.
Good or bad?
Rorrington the Fireman saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:50 am
OK, maybe it’s just me; but does anyone else think that at the State of the Union address, VP Joe Biden looked an AWFUL LOT like Ventriliquist Jeff Dunham’s cranky-old-man character, “Walter”? Just sayin’….
BossysMom saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:50 am
It’s difficult for me not to be oh so serious talking about President Obamas magnificent speech.
IF ONLY WE COULD ALL STOP BEING SO CYNICAL…
km saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:53 am
I want to hang out with the Bidens. Joe strikes me as a guy who’d sing and cry at Irish wakes and Jill would just be adorable. I’d go to the Obama’s for wine and good debates. We could discuss international affairs and kids’ homework.
Pelosi always looks so coiffed. I admire that but she lacks Hillary’s steel balls. I think I’d skip her salads and catered parties.
I thought Obama was more like the Obama I voted for. I’d like to see more of the asskicking
Lisa saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 12:36 pm
Something about BO that totally turns me off. I can’t even look at him because my intuition tells me that there is something terribly bad around him.
The Domestic Goddess saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 12:51 pm
Did ANYONE else notice that Joe’s face had trouble moving? Botox much?
Jenn @ Juggling LIfe saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 1:20 pm
Thank goodness I still have it on the TiVo so I can watch again and just focus on Nancy Pelosi–this is a hoot.
Ms. Cranky Pants saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 1:39 pm
Oh dear Bossy, you slay me. Larry & The 3 Stooges. Can’t.Stop.Giggling.
Sidebar: I was at Columbia U on Tuesday afternoon. I stood outside the Library & Lerner Hall & waved across the entire campus to Bossy’s Son, but wasn’t sure if he saw me. (ew, that sounded totally creepy & stalkerish but I swear it isn’t. It was more like, wow, I ‘know’ someone famous who goes here)
josh saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 2:19 pm
Pelosi looks stoned outta her gourd and like she needs a can of Pringles of sumfing to cure what ails her.
Cactus Petunia saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 3:06 pm
Lizzy saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 3:40 pm
With that wacky tongue thing going on, Nancy Pelosi reminds me of a bad Cher impersonator with shorter hair and pearls. Minus the mesh bodysuit.
“If I could turn back tiiii-ime…”
Liz saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 4:00 pm
Haha, good speech but I didn’t even notice Nancy Pelosi! My dad always answers the question “What’s your biggest fear?” with “Nancy Pelosi.” Now I’m gaining some insight as to why!
Beff saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 4:08 pm
1) I thought that was Andrea Martin behind Lou Brock Obama
2) Larry was THE funniest Stooge, no comparison
3) I wish our current Supreme Court Chief Justice was as qualified as Judgy Wudgy
Sallie (FullTime-Life) saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 5:02 pm
I wish those two would sit somewhere else — even if the people holding those positions were easier to look at. Funny post but I’m 100% with Bossys mother on this one.
Shelley saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 5:19 pm
I want to hang out with Bossy’s mom. Maybe she could beat some of my cynicism out of me.
I’m so tired of politics. I’m so tired of trying to convince people that are wrong that they are wrong, because they just .don’t. get. it. I’m tired of people complaining that the president hasn’t fixed everything in one year, when he was left a disatrous mess by the previous administration of EIGHT YEARS. I’m sick of listening to right-wing lunatics. I’m tired of their whole attitude of “I’ve got mine, and screw everyone else.” I’m tired of people who don’t think that everyone deserves healthcare. I’m tired of people who think that helping others is a BAD thing. The whole thing just exhausts me. Bossy’s mom, help?
AmberStar saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 6:04 pm
I always thought Curly was the funniest of the Three Stooges.
We watched the speech night before last and I thought it a good speech, but it lacked something and maybe it was that my attention was taken away wondering what Pelosi or Biden were going to do next. I was also taken aback by the hostile stance the Supreme Court took at one point. I thought Ruth Bader Ginsberg was going to come out of her seat and pop him a good one upside his head, but she didn’t, and the speech went on. I guess I was sort of thinking about how the supreme court justices had ruled to let corporations can spend unlimited fundsi n our elections. That set me back on my heels. I really didn’t have time to ponder Pelosi’s pearls. However, they all got their aerobic excercises in…except those who didn’t stand to applaud after each sentence.
mustang sally saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 6:24 pm
Pelosi never stopped blinking the entire time & Biden must have been having an allergic reaction. During the SOTU they earned the nicknames Itchy and Blinky.
Jennifer L. saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 6:50 pm
Hilarious! So funny I had to show this post to my husband!
helenel saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 7:23 pm
Oh, Ugh. The first time BO gave a speech like that NP kept looking at him like “My little boy! He makes me so proud!” and then kept sucking her teeth like she had some bits of dry pork chop stuck back there.
Bleah. It really takes away from the seriousness of the whole thing.
Jenni D. saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 7:28 pm
I’m with you on the purple popsicle. You just say it funnier than me, Bossy! I always say. “His lips are purple.” See what I mean?
A friend of mine said it looked like someone fed Pelosi a peanut butter sandwich a couple of minutes before the cameras rolled.
goblinbox saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 7:43 pm
Bitch, I cannot BLEEV you busted out with that awesomesauce grape popsicle joke, because HELLO?! It’s hilarious! YOU WIN.
goblinbox saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 7:43 pm
Winnar. You are teh. Yeah.
Linda saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 8:13 pm
Dang! I couldn’t even watch the President because I was so busy watching the goofy twosome behind him. I finally had to go in the other room and just listen. They were driving me crazy.
Reeb saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 8:39 pm
I am so proud to know Bossy, albeit only through her blog where fabuloshiously she connects the 3 stooges and the leaders of our country in a semi-good way.
foolery saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:36 pm
You had me at grape popsicle. Thank you for that big fat laugh.
That speech left me thinking, “THAT is why I voted for the man.” And then I called my dad who tentatively agreed with me, mostly. And then he handed the phone to my mom who told me why I am wrong. And that right there is why I hate politics: just when you find someone you think you can believe in, along comes someone you otherwise adore who tells you why you’re a lunatic.
HA HA HA — one more big fat grape popsicle laugh. Thank you.
Cupcake Murphy saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:05 pm
CRAZAZY LADY Nancy does odd things with her mouth. I think she is addicted to Altoids. I also think she would be good at Pictionary. And I’m certain she makes a mean paella. As you can see I have many thoughts on The Pelosi.
Robyn Taylor saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:58 pm
What Shelley said.
Lisa Ann saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:32 pm
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 12:11 am
That grape popsicle must have an ingredient label that includes:
Serving Size: 1 man
Servings Per Container: 1
Servings Expected Per Container: 4,587
Reminder of How Many Servings Per Container When Serving Size Inherited a Disaster: 1 man
% daily value of ability to lead: 400%
% chances that I’ll marry him: 7,460%
ace saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 2:13 am
HA! You nailed it Bossy, I couldn’t take my eyes off her, it was crazy.
Definitely Whopner, I mean the Larry of the show. Lisa #26, I felt the same way about old watermelon seed-eyed spawn of Hitler, ‘W’, now talk about a crazy stooge!
meleah rebeccah saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 2:27 am
The third photo down in your blog post of Nancy Pelosi is KILLING ME!!!
Bush Babe (of Granite Glen) saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 5:10 am
I agree with Carson (#2) – I nominated you Bossy! I promise… I have no idea what you are talking about here, but you made me laugh anyway.
Grammar Snob saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 10:12 am
I think the only thing Madame Speaker was missing was pom poms. I loved how she jumped up even before the sentence was done. I’ve been looking for a still shot of Joe Biden rolling his eyes at her…there just has to be one somewhere. 🙂
thatgirlblogs saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 1:29 pm
made my morning
Meg at the Members Lounge saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 1:33 pm
I think I need to apply some crime tape to the TV next time so I can concentrate better on President O’ Boyfriend. And Nancy? You and Jeff Bridges need to stop playing with your dentures.
alyssa saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 9:27 pm
You know what it is with that crazy lady…it is her mouth. If you look her mouth takes up her whole face. She just has a really big mouth and big teeth and when she smiles or moves it in any way it looks ridiculous altogether.
alyssa saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 9:27 pm
I think her and Cameron Diaz must be related.
fanning flashes saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 10:58 pm
Not a fan of talking politics on blogs since they are my grape popsicles for the day but I will make a exception this time. You crack me up. Nancy is stinkin goofy. Enjoy your blog!
runnergirl saysJanuary 31, 2010 at 2:33 pm
I have a much more positive outlook on the SOTU address after reading your blog, Bossy. Grape popsicle and Stooges!!! Finally, something I can believe in!!!!
Rooster Shamblin saysJanuary 31, 2010 at 8:24 pm

Missives From Suburbia saysJanuary 31, 2010 at 9:45 pm
OMG… I was RIVETED by Nancy Pelosi, and I could barely focus on Obama’s speech. Talk about stealing the show!
MomZombie saysFebruary 1, 2010 at 9:36 am
I, too, could not stop focusing on Nancy Pelosi. I wanted to shove a glass of water through my TV screen and tell her to take a swig or two and stop the oral gymnastics.
uzi silber saysFebruary 1, 2010 at 12:15 pm
Pelosi is a homo sapiens sapiens sapiens: her fabulously elastic face and novel use of facial musculature will certainly be a model for the android industry to come.
