I may be a little late for Thanksgiving dinner

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

So when does the real college football start?

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

Green Bay 30, Carolina 23

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

Parents: teach your kids to be scared of hiccups

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.

After a great deal of thought, I have decided not to liveblog tomorrow’s Republican debate

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

Yo, moderate this

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

So the Trog decides to pick some bloggers he wants to see moderate a GOP debate

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

Rick Perry wants to Amend The Constitution

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

They said if I supported Governor Walker we’d see massive layoffs

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

It has been well over 48 hours since Joe Biden compared the Tea Party to terrorists

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.]

This post may already be obsolete

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

Denise Richards regrets her boob jobs

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

Update to “It’s getting a little too two-dimensional around here”

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

It’s getting a little too two-dimensional around here

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

Bang

So the Wisconsin Senate passed a concealed-carry law, and about damn time.  The Assembly still has to vote on the bill, but if you ask the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (see linked article) it’s a done deal. In order to get a … Continue reading
