TheWeekholeView: November 21 through November 27, 2012

Here each hole starts on Wednesdays and this is what fell through this past week: Last Wednesday, November 21, 2012, two new movies were released: Red Dawn, a movie about foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky into Washington State, and The Rise of the Guardians, a movie about how children’s dreams can save children’s heroes. I skipped them both.

On Thursday, November 22, 2012, Americans all over the world thanked each other for being able to afford a turkey. No one can predict how expensive this bird may soon become.

On Friday, November 23, the Israelis realized that they will cast the vote for either a bellicose Bibi or a peaceful Tzipi. We will be following those elections as they seem the only ones to involve ideological differences.

On Saturday, November 24, the Italian left got ready to mess up their own elections, despite the fact that whoever gets the nomination will very likely become the next Italian prime-minister.

On Sunday, November 25, the French Republicans voted for their chairman and welcomed their own Jeb Bush to bring them back to power.

On Monday, November 26, President Obama hearing his subjects feared they might not be able to purchase a turkey next year revealed his plans for assuaging their worries: keep Eric Holder at the Department of Justice and appoint Elisse Walter Chairwoman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Their timidity or corporate sellout will ensure that Americans will receive a turkey for each two families from bailout corporations too big for the free fall market.

On Tuesday, November 27, Joe Lieberman, whom I used to refer to as Bush Lite until Obama entered the politics, on his way out from politics, reminisced about his two senatorial brothers, whose names will not be mentioned here, but whose identities are spelled out in this article: http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/l/joseph_i_lieberman/index.html.
