    Well, either WPXI is lying, or the Tribune Review is.

    When I came home from work friday, I asked my wife if she had heard about the veep pick. She said she had, but thought it was a bad pick because “she looks kind of wild”. I was stunned until I asked where she saw the news. She said that they broke in during Guiding Light on....cBS. We fixed that by doing a search on the net for some different shots of Sarahcuda.

    Wait, maybe they’re onto something. If you consider the roster of past Cincinatti Bengals teams, and their BMI vs incarceration rate, divided by the square root of Pelosi’s IQ (or Pi, they’re about the same). Maybe I should apply to the feds for a grant, to expand on this navel gazing, er I mean, research.

    From the story I read in the Pittsburgh Trib, it sounds as if that may have been the case.

    "Police asked state caseworkers to not say whether Hannah's family had been investigated by child welfare officers, said Marissa Gonzales, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. She characterized the request as uncommon. © 2007 The Associated Press. "

    I just want to know how soon after the DNA tests come back that it is his turn on the end of the rope.

    I'm not surprised by this, but am confused. If they passed a resolution barring free speech, they'd be set upon by suits against them for infringement of constitutional rights. Why is the 2nd amendment exempt from the same protection? Isn't there a small group of conservatives residing in Sodom Francisco that could file a class action suit against the city ?

    I passed a hybrid civic today with the new champion of all idiotic bumper stickers. “Support Our Troops - Drive a Hybrid”. On the passenger side was a “Edwards for Pres” sticker. I damn near ran off the highway when I saw it. I guess next time I probably better just give the bird with one hand...

    I saw Dennis Miller on Fox recently. He had a great line about the propagandamentary. “Moore’s movie Sicko is doing so bad that the Supreme Court recently ruled that it was ok to yell “Fire” in the theater that is showing it”.

    Dennis Leary, comic though he may be, has nailed this one already.

    From his "No Cure for Cancer" cd. Lyrics provided from http://endor.org/leary/

    "There's a guy- I don't know if you've heard about this guy, he's been on the news a lot lately. There's a guy- he's English, I don't think we should hold that against him, but apparently this is just his life's dream because he is going from country to country. He has a senate hearing in this country coming up in a couple of weeks. And this is what he wants to do. He wants to make the warnings on the packs bigger. Yeah! He wants the whole front of the pack to be the warning. Like the problem is we just haven't noticed yet. Right? Like he's going to get his way and all of the sudden smokers around the world are going to be going, "Yeah, Bill, I've got some cigarettes.. HOLY S**T! These things are bad for you! S**t, I thought they were good for you! I thought they had Vitamin C in them and stuff!" You f***ing dolt! Doesn't matter how big the warnings are. You could have cigarettes that were called warnings. You could have cigarrettes that come in a black pack, with a skull and a cross bone on the front, called tumors and smokers would be lined up around the block going, "I can't wait to get my hands on these f***ing things! I bet you get a tumor as soon as you light up! Numm Numm Numm Numm Numm" Doesn't matter how big the warnings are or how much they cost. Keep raising the prices, we'll break into your houses to get the f***ing cigarettes, ok!? They're a drug, we're addicted, ok!? Numm Numm Numm Numm Numm *wheeze*"

    "I love to smoke. I smoke seven thousand packs a day, ok. And I am never f***ing quitting! I don't care how many laws they make. What's the law now? You can only smoke in your apartment, under a blanket, with all the lights out? Is that the rule now, huh?! The cops are outside, "We know you have the cigarettes. Come out of the house with the cigarettes above your head." "You'll never get me copper! I'm never coming out, you hear? I got a cigarette machine right here in my bedroom. Yeah!"

    I don't know. Personally, I think Billy Martin said it best when he said, "Hey! I can drive!" Because we tried to be nice to you non-smokers. We f***ing tried. Okay? You wanted your own sections in the restaurants. We gave you that, huh. But that wasn't enough for you. Then you wanted the airplanes. We gave you the whole G** d**n plane! You happy now? You own the f***ing plane! I'd like an explanation about that one folks because I will guarantee you if the plane is going down, the first announcement you're gonna hear is, "Folks, this is your Captain speaking. Look, uhm, light 'em up, 'cause we're going down, okay. I got a carton of Camels non-filters, I'll see you on the ground. Take it easy."

    The filters the best part. That's where they put the heroine. Only us real good smokers know that f***ing secret. Yeah, we tried to be nice to you non-smokers. We tried. But you just f***ing badger us, you know? You won't leave us alone! You got all your little speeches you're always giving to us. All these little facts that you dig out of a newspaper or pamphlet and you store that little nugget in your little f***ing head, and we light up and you spew 'em out at us, don't ya? I love these little facts. "Well you know. Smoking takes ten years off your life." Well it's the ten worst years, isn't it folks? It's the ones at the end! It's the wheelchair kidney dialysis f***ing years. You can have those years! We don't want 'em, alright!? And I guarantee if I'm still alive, I'll be smoking then. Because you're always telling us, "You know, ever cigarette takes six minutes off your life. If you quit now you can live an extra ten years. If you quit now, you can live an extra twenty years." Hey, I got two words for you, ok. Jim Fix. Remember Jim Fix? The big famous jogging guy? Jogged fifteen miles a day. Did a jogging book. Did a jogging video. Dropped out of a heart attack when? When he was f***ing jogging, that's when! What do you wanna bet it was two smokers who found the body the next morning and went, "Hey! That's Jim Fix, isn't it?" "Wow, what a f***ing tragedy. Come on, lets go buy some butts."

    It's always the yogurt sprout eating mother f***ers who get run over buy a bus driven by a guy who smokes three and a half packs a day. "Sorry officer, I didn't see him. I was too busy smoking!"

    My father-in-law is former navy. We have a great time with this rivalry. He always sez the Marines are a department of the navy, and I tell him “yeah, the men’s department!” It got really edgy during the 04 elections when I hit him with “at least the Marines would never let Kerry in.” He was stung with that one until that a$$hat Murtha had to go and open his pie-hole. It just goes on and on, but it’s all in good fun.

    How about if we let them have our seat, and the whole UN building to boot. As a taxpayer, I'd even be willing to chip in to pay to relocate the existing structure brick by brick.

    Did I miss the announcement that our cruise missile stockpile is depleted and have been declared obsolete? The previous administration didn’t seem to have any issue with lobbing a couple when they saw fit, without a declaration of war. All we’d need are about 6 or 10, with at least one directed in the general direction of the State Dept., just to encourage them to get their heads out of their asses. The time to respond to Iran’s open support for the jihadists in the world is long past due.

    Pinatubo is a very effective anti-global warming argument. My response to a "warmist" when they insist on laws and regs to reduce greenhouse emissions, is that all of that is a fool's errand. When you consider the fact that all it takes to undo (several times over) any possible impact of their nonsensical actions is one Pinatubo eruption that spews more than 176.5 billion cubic feet of ash and greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. When the greenie-weenies can give a me a solution to prevent volcanic activity, then maybe we can talk about them making me buy a butt-ugly hybrid.
