a jaundiced outlook

Loads of politics going on here in Colorado! Governor and Senate races are going on. The media are getting rich with all the ads! You got it right, Bridget!

Carol Varsalona said...

Bridget, this is absolutely delightful for the political scene.

Great! Do the naughty politicians eat poached eggs? ;)

Diane Mayr said...

Perfect! And did you know it is International Egg Day?

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Linda! If only election season was shorter, but the end is in sight...Nov 4th! = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Carol! It's hard not to get jaundiced with some of those ads. = )

Bridget Magee said...

LOL, Catherine! Yes, poached eggs would be perfect for certain politicians! = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Diane! I didn't know about International Egg Day, but I'm pleased with the happy coincidence. = )

Doraine said...

Exactly the way I feel about politics!

jama said...

Hah! Good one, Bridget. :)

Michelle Heidenrich Barnes said...

Oh man, I'm so sick of the attack ads already! In Florida, our corrupt and very wealthy governor appears to be buying the election yet again. Hoping he ends up with egg on his face, but I just don't know.

Bridget Magee said...

I know, right, Doraine? Makes you lose your appetite.

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Jama! It was egg-cellent of you to comment. = )

Bridget Magee said...

That's awful, Michelle! Some (most) politicians are scary individuals. Hopefully truth and ethics will prevail. = )

Heidi Mordhorst said...

No yolk, indeed, or too much. A golden-fried offering, Bridget!

Mary Lee said...

I thought there would be egg-throwing before I clicked over. Glad to see that the eggs are sunny side up, even though politics can be so grim.

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Heidi! I like the idea of golden-fried as opposed to egg in my eye. = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Mary Lee! Yes, I always try to see the "sunny side" of life, even if it's a bit jaundiced. = )

Violet N. said...

HA! Very clever.

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Violet!

Ruth said...

Nice!

Author Amok said...

Sigh -- true that. Hey -- this senryu might make a good "Golden Shovel" poem.

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Ruth!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Laura, sigh indeed. BTW I'm not familiar with a "Golden Shovel" poem - what's that?
