“There’s some hilarious stuff that’s been posted about Rick Perry since he entered the presidential race. The most interesting thing I’ve learned is that George W. Bush isn’t really Chimpy McHitlerburton after all, but that Rick Perry is actually Chimpy McHitlerburton on steroids and is going to kill people with his bare hands or something like that.”
I just thought that Rick Perry was that Twilight kid’s dad or something. I was wrong. I heard yesterday he is was Jeb Bush’s fraternal twin. That Bush family’s on a roll. Keep an eye out for them. Up and coming.
“The experience that has served Bachmann well isn’t in governance, but in dealing with the media gatekeepers. Whatever you think about her politics, there is no disputing that she has become very good at dealing with the MSM.”
I definitely like what she’s been doing lately with the mainstream media. If I had an entourage, I would have them rough journalists up too. I just hope the physicality continues. The presidential race should really be a year-long American Gladiators-type contest, the culmination of which would be that game with the gun that shoots tennis balls. Perhaps more Americans would be interested in voting if we made a reality gameshow out of it.
Things have been a little slow around here. What gives? Here’s are a few distractions.
“3. Vicodin is an excellent pain and productivity killer.”
I think you may have found their next ad campaign…
“I have some great news to share, I have learned how to do laundry. I’ve learned how to operate the Washer unit and the dryer successfully, and I’ve learned that my daughter is pretty good at folding clothes and likes to play outside with her friends. A useful skill and a weakness to exploit, clothes are done.
Hats off to you, sir.

I learned two things today. Thanks, Audrey.
Today, “G” was going around with a runny nose and leaving behind a slipstream of disruption. He’s three, at the young end of our preschool class, and developmentally delayed. That means he has trouble following directions and focusing for long. In the classroom where he is the smallest of 17 kids, G takes up a disproportionate amount of space and attention.
I could see and understand that the movie was a sugarcoated, whitewashed version of what really happened during Jim Crow, but it didn’t send me into a fury. It didn’t go far enough, but it wasn’t that bad, through my lens. I was disappointed I didn’t hate it.
What makes a successful blog? As a place where reader and writer come together and a connection sparks, interaction between people generally defines success for a blog. When a stable community forms there’s definitely blogging gold.
I recently learned about this Georgia factory making chopsticks and exporting them to China. This NPR story points out the contrast of the phenomenon, an American company sending chopsticks to China while we fail to produce so many of our own goods, including electronic devices we ourselves invented.
Since Michele Bachmann announced her candidacy for president, national and international media have been rummaging through the Dumpster of her life for whatever details about her past they can uncover among the refuse.
Our local Jewish Community Relations Council speaks out about today’s terror attacks in the South of Israel.
If you win $50,000 while assuming the identity of someone else, you should expect fall-out from your actions.
Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is calling on all Americans to suspend campaign donations to the president and anyone in Congress until a long-term deficit reduction plan is in place.
It’s not every day that a fine news publication like The Onion dips its toes into trademark pool. Given this, I was pleasantly surprised to see this parody about troubling competition to Yellowstone National Park.
Minneapolis just announced that for the next year it will test single-sort recycling in a couple of neighborhoods. I was surprised to learn that the city wasn’t already doing this. In fact, it’s the only city in Hennepin County that makes its residents sort its recyclables.
