Sleepy Head

Big Guy was none too pleased when Gibbsy and I showed up at his door at about 4:30 on Sunday morning to tell him that the North Koreans had fired their rocket, or missile, or whatever our national security people think it is.

The White House Chief of Staff is usually the one who is supposed to do the waking, but ever since watching "24" to learn how to be a chief of staff and seeing a press secretary wake President Palmer, Toes has refused to do it.

I should be clear, Big O's anger wasn't about the rocket. He just hates getting pulled out of bed for minor things, like potential missile attacks. Lady M doesn't help matters, either, in fact, she encourages the "do not disturb" approach to Big Guy's sleep. Their rationale: a well-rested Barack means a top-flight performer on the world stage. And after we've seen him the past week, can anyone disagree?


  1. So what exactly does Toes do, TOTUS, besides send dead fish to reporters that tick him off and go on the Sunday morning pressers and spout talking points? Just wondering if you had some sort of insiders insight.

  2. Toes does BHO's dirty work. He and I were working a sweet deal when Fitzgerald cut the cord. I coulda been a contender! Hell, I'm just as ethical as all those other guys BHO appointed to cabinet positions. Plus I was only looking for an ambassadorship. Or a million dollars.

  3. TOTUS, were YOU ever featured on 24?

    I wouldn't be surprised if they pay homage to you on an upcoming episode since you are Big Guy's right hand man (rather, his right & left hand screen). You have made your mark on history, and it would be sweet if you were offered a cameo appearance.

    The extra money could come in handy, and despite BO wanting to punish those who earn a good paycheck, Hollywood seems to be one place you can still make big bucks these days without anybody whining or calling in ACORN to protest about it.


  4. Nice post!

    Would you like a Link Exchange with our blog COMMON CENTS where we blog about the issues of the day??

  5. TOTUS, why are you being silent on the "Austrian" language gaff! Were you responsible???

  6. come on TOTUS, tell me you didn't tell the big guy people can speak Austrian? I'm feeling like that Indian crying looking at all that trash in that commerical from the 1970's.

  7. Here's someone who disagrees in the UK Telegraph. He doesn't quite blame you, but he thinks the Big Guy is a big bore.

  8. I want the BIG news though ...Does The Big Guy wear Pajama tops or bottoms to bed?

  9. TOTUS, are there any justifiable causes for interrupting the sleep of Obama? For example, is a new regulatory concoction from the Banking Queen considered a more justifiable reason than a missile launch by the Very Androgynous Kim Jong Il??

  10. TOTUS,

    You has better talk the Big Guy out of his nuclear disarmament ideas when he can't do anythng about North Korea launching missiles!

  11. Totus, nice work not crashing when Big Guy responded to N. Korea's missile launch by saying we'd "affirm the existing sactions" and work to strengthen our commitment to arms control.
    Wow, that will really show 'em. I know I feel safe with Big O in charge.

  12. Nice imagery, Rustard. The way the Socialists in D.C. are trashing their own country is appalling. That Indian beside the freeway is how all true Americans feel most of the time these days.

    Now...... for the sequel -- -- in rapid succession appear:

    1) Patrick Henry: "Give me liberty or give me death."

    2) Abraham Lincoln: "... we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of... by... [and] for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

    3) General G. S. Patton: "The most vital quality a soldier can possess is self-confidence... ." and

    4) Todd Beamer [helped thwart terrorist's attack on board Flight 93, 9/11/1]: "Let's roll."

    KEEP THE FAITH, true patriots. Our country is now under occupation by the Socialists in Congress, but persevere. PRAY. If God is not using the Demonocrats to destroy the United States, their schemes will ultimately fail and Truth will win.

  13. You should tell Gibsy to bring Big Guy a fresh sippy cup when he has to wake him up in the middle of the night. You know how irritating it can be waking up in the middle of the night, taking a drink from the glass next to your bed and spilling some water on the sheets. A presidential sippy cup could avoid all that pain and discomfort, and probably save Gibsy some grief after having woken up Big Guy and Lady M from their most certainly required beauty sleep.
