Mumbai-bye Baby

Well. it's been an awful lot of fun here in Mumbai. Big Guy and Lady M just danced and danced and danced, and that was just on the flight over here from Washington. Some of us, who were a little more subdued given the lashings voters gave our team last Tuesday, thought may it was kind of like delayed stress being released. Now, after watching the two of them boogieing down the hallways of Air Force One, I'm wondering if they just don't care and are just happy to be along for the ride ... literally.

Then, when we hit the ground in Mumbai, there was more dancing to be had because of the religious holiday, Diwali. Big Guy knew all about this holiday, not because he's particularly attuned to Hindu customs - Muslims hate the Hindus, or so he says - but because he said he'd been heavily briefed on the issue. Which explains this video link I found on his laptop, and also explains why he didn't get in line at the Diwali potluck at St. Xavier University.

I blame off this confusion, and the bloated cost of this trip, on the lack of a White House chief of staff. I hate to say this, but since Rahm left, things have just been chaos. And the fact that Big Guy just let the IT guy move into Toes's office just shows how crazy things have been around here. I mean, with Pete sitting in there, he never uploads my software upgrades and my screens on this trip have been getting a lot dirtier, what with everyone wanting to touch me given my celebrity status.

The highlight of the trip for Big Guy wasn't really a highlight at all, but it just shows how out of touch he seems to be with what's been going on. Given the amount of development going on in India, global warming is actually viewed as a good thing, particularly since no one wants to tell one of the poorest countries in the world that it's not allowed to build up its economy by polluting the air, water and building stuff as fast as it can. So when a little girl at a development held up a picture she'd drawn of a growing Indian village, he saw a windmill and an eco-friendly town. When reporters looked at it, it was a giant daisycutter taking out trees, and villagers building an office park for outsourcing American jobs.

We'll be headed to New Delhi next, and spend the next few hours rehearsing our big speech there. Unless Big Guy stages a Hindu Halloween on AF1 tonight.

  7. Gucci , Gucci , Gucci , will not be available for purchase in this post . You might however want to remember the phrase just in case you are forced into making ' small talk ' with an infant .

    Like certain gags about the um , ummah ,I could not resist repeating that . Even four months old it is still fresh .

    Was wondering Teleprompter about logistics for you at that Indonesian Mosque before the Loco- Motivated and his Caboose made all those ' Seoul Train ' jokes possible .

    Specifically one wondered whether you were triplets for that visit .

    One figures most visitors to a church , temple , synagogue or mosque , would pray while there . Someone who remembered a bit of Arabic might even be tempted to heed that " Beautiful " call at Sunset , and join in .

    So I was figuring needing prompting on those Arabic words and all , they probably laid your screen flat , but face up on the Presidential Prayer rug right ? That way he could read along w the Arabic between forehead bumps .

    So is that what happened , or did they just use an I-pad ?

  10. I see the lamest of the lame ducks is ducking out again. This traveling is worth it to us back here at home as we don't have to listen to his preaching and demeaning. BTW, why is this allowed on your screens?
