Today, the Buffalo Bills lost to Cincinnati on a last-second field goal, removing them from the something-and-0 club. However the Detroit Lions (!) put up a remarkable come-from-behind win at Dallas that included two pick-six plays and kept them in. … Continue reading
The Wisconsin Badgers rolled through their non-conference schedule. As usual. And after seeing them smoke UNLV 51-17, Oregon State 35-0, Northern Illinois 49-7, and South Dakota 59-10, I (as usual) began to grouse about it. It’s fine to get some … Continue reading
A few thoughts: Cam Newton looked more and more like a rookie as the game went on. Excluding the final drive (which occurred in kill-the-clock garbage time anyway), Newton threw for 355 yards and the Panthers rushed for 65. 420 … Continue reading
In case of an emergency landing, please lean forward, put your head between your knees, and kiss your benefits goodbye
From this account of last week’s Republican debate: “Perry offered a full-throated defense of some of his more provocative statements on the campaign trail, including his statement that Social Security is a ‘Ponzi scheme’ . . . the Texas governor … Continue reading
That way if they ever get the hiccups, they can cure themselves. Shut up. You’re just mad that you didn’t think of it.
My blog will be much more interesting that way. Also, liveblogging it would mean I’d have to watch it. Who the fuck wants to do that? Liveblogging it without watching it – there’s an idea. Maybe next time, when I … Continue reading
Looks like Westley was right: Prince Humperdinck, 1987. Prince Humperdinck, 2011???
So the other day Troglopundit got some other bloggers (including yours truly) to tell him what they’d ask if they could moderate one of the Republican presidential debates. Which is a pretty lazy way to come up with a post, … Continue reading
He got the idea from some guy on the “internet”. He had a few of his six slots filled. (Why six? Why not?) And he emailed me at work to ask me to join in. I didn’t answer right away. … Continue reading
Just like everyone else. Amending The Constitution is really, really hard, therefore talking about Amending The Constitution is really, really easy. That’s why so many people talk about it all the time. Candidates for political office, especially for the presidency, … Continue reading
Aaaaaaaaand sure enough: WEAC issues layoff notices to 40% of staff. For those who don’t know, WEAC does not stand for Welcome Everyone Acting Crabby, Wheat Enemas Are Cool, Whipped Eggplant And Capers, or We Eat Ass Chaps. WEAC stands … Continue reading
The Democratic state senators facing recall elections in Wisconsin will meet their fates this Tuesday. Kenosha senator Bob Wirch is one of them, being challenged by local lawyer Jonathan Steitz. Here’s a web ad I’ve been seeing around (on YouTube … Continue reading
Instapundit/The Tatler/some newspaper: “Texas Gov. Rick Perry is running for president, a spokesman confirmed Thursday, a move certain to shake up the race for the GOP nomination much to the delight of conservatives looking for a candidate to embrace….. Official … Continue reading
And not in a good way. So where are the ‘Joe Biden called me a terrorist‘ t-shirts? I’d buy one. [Note to self: look into online t-shirt printing after work tomorrow.]
By the time I post this, there may already be a debt-ceiling deal. You may as well keep reading, though, as long as you’re here. Take for consideration Krauthammer (via Sykes), essentially arguing that Repubs and Tea Partiers and such … Continue reading
Found via Instapundit, who frankly has been a real downer lately. Yo Glenn, if I want to be depressed I’ll read all that stuff you keep linking about the economy, and the Middle East, and the zombies. Anyway, here’s Denise … Continue reading
Because that sucker is already too long (it’s the previous post to this one, just scroll down). Here’s some more hope: “NASA engineers are expected to confirm this weekend that the US spacecraft Dawn has entered the orbit of Vesta, … Continue reading
So the space shuttle is headed for Social Security. In the archives. Out to pasture. Hitting the early-bird special at Denny’s. Several other cliches. Heavy sigh. America’s space program is taking a step backwards, and I’m pretty bummed about it. … Continue reading
The Trog, among others, are (ahem) moderately unhappy with this story about a Fourth of July parade float: “A re-enactment of the famous photo of three firefighters raising the American flag amid the rubble of the World Trade Center – … Continue reading
