Scarlett O'Hara to Kate Middleton: Fiddle-dee-dee with the wind

scarlett-hairWaity Katie Middleton’s flipping and flapping her long, fat sausage curls while smirking and sighing on the balcony at the Cenotaph’s solemn Remembrance Day service made lots of people cringe.


Because it seemed like a flippant, self-indulgent careless gesture by a woman who may one day come to be a living symbol, with her husband, of the British nation.

The idea is making a lot of British people...cringe.

They can’t keep up with Prince William and Kate Middleton’s ever-increasing demands for multi-million dollar homes, resistance to doing any work, Kate’s odd pregnancy and seeming eating disorder, and their general vapidness.

But then, Kate Middleton appeared at the Citadel, flipped and flapped her curls, and started a huge internet furor over whether she should be tossed out along with her long, fat sausage curls, or at least corrected about her decorum, or lack of it.

The fuss reminded us of another feisty Waity Katie and her long, fat sausage curls:

Katie Scarlett O’Hara, in that saga movie, "Gone With the Wind."

They seem to have so much in common, these two Katies who waited a long time for true love to conquer all, despite the centuries that separate them. Long, fat sausage curls flipped and flapped under elaborate netted and feathered hats are the first thing that comes to mind. But then, one has only to review the "Gone With the Wind" dialogue to see how close in mind, if not in time, both Katies really are.

Look at Kate Middleton’s photos here, but think "Katie Scarlett O’Hara," and listen as these epic lines echo from the balconies of the antebellum South to the London Cenotaph’s balcony through time and space. First, as to honoring Great Britain’s war dead:

"Fiddle-dee-dee! War, war, war; this war talk’s spoiling all the fun at every party this spring. I get so bored I could scream!"

"If either of you boys says "war" just once again, I’ll go in the house and slam the door."

"Go on! I want you to go! I hope a cannonball lands slap on you! I hope your blown into a million pieces! I...."

Then, as to Kate Middleton being too rich and too thin:

"You can take it all back to the kitchen; I won’t eat a bite."

And as to Kate Middleton’s overt flirting last Sunday with Princess Anne’s second husband, Tim Laurence:

"He looks as if... as if he knows what I look like without my shimmy."
And perhaps here we can imagine Tim’s possible response, a la Rhett Butler:

"No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how."

And then, we can swing over to possible mother-daughter chats between Waity Katie and Carole Middleton:

"Why does a girl have to be so silly to catch a husband?"

"Marriage, fun? Fiddle-dee-dee. Fun for men you mean."

Then, there’s playing hard-to-get with Prince William:

"Well, if you think I’ll marry you just to pay for the bonnet, I won’t."

And don’t forget about what Kate Middleton may have to say about the public’s criticism that the Middletons are "cashing in" on Waity’s royal marriage and new royal connections:

"As God is my witness, as God is my witness they’re not going to lick me. I’m going to live through this and when it’s all over, I’ll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill. As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again."

And then, there’s always what Kate Middleton would tell the photo journalist who captured her flipping and flapping her curls about:
Ooh, if I just wasn’t a lady, WHAT wouldn’t I tell that varmint!"

If long fat sausage curls can suddenly erupt back into fashion, why not expressions like "Fiddle-dee-dee?"

Look out! The cringing is just beginning!

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
