Monday Musings

On this day in history... Some minority of some sort was the first to accomplish something that had previously been accomplished... I dunno, first Asian Sailboating champion? Let's go with that. I'm not gonna do research for you people. Let's muse.

------------

So, you remember last week when I said McCain could hand himself the election by taking a bold and principled stand against the bailout? Yeah, that wasn't what I had in mind, either.

I mean, I'm sure Congress appreciated having someone available for late night coffee runs, but...

------------

For one day, Minnesota Twins fans are rooting for the Detroit Tigers. Yeah, I can tell you just about how that goes.

------------

The bailout bill is drivel, and will become moreso if Hopeface gets his hopeful little hands it. Just in case you were unaware of my stance on the issue.

------------

The Democratic Newswire (aka the Associated Press) has a devastating piece on Sarah Palin's sleazy kickbacks. She got free salmon and a facial, it turns out. Oh, and she bought a house that had a carport that impinged upon a neighbor's property line and was suppose to remove the carport, but didn't remove it.

So did Brett J. Blackledge wake up Sunday morning, look in the mirror and say "I've justified my existence this week,"?

Cause he shouldn't have, if he did.

------------

Meanwhile, MBNA bought Joe Biden's vote on bankruptcy legislation by hiring his son at an independent consultant and purchasing his house at $200k above market value. Also, Barack Obama had a convicted felon help him get a sweet deal on his...

What? Oh, we're just sticking to stories about free salmon? What about the Pentagon-bombing terrorist who shepherded Obama through the Chicago... No? Still on carports? Never mind, then.

I can't imagine why people don't buy newspapers anymore.

------------

Bloomberg has a piece with the headline: "Paulson Must Make $700 Billion Rescue for Banks"

This is a refreshing departure from the WSJ's opinion editorial entitled "Paulson Should !#$% This Up on Purpose!"

------------

Meanwhile the BBC reports that warships have surrounded Somali pirates. Yeah, the Brits get all the cool news while we read about carports and get fatuously obvious commentary from our economic magazines. No wonder all the Brits think we're mouth breathers who eat at Cracker Barrel.

------------

Is it too early for Packer fans to start the chants of "Fire Thompson"?

This should get the ball rolling on that front.

I fail to see how associations with terrorists somehow overshadows free Salmon. Have you looked at the price of Salmon?


When it comes to Palin, well, she is finally losing her bullet proof armor the crazy left gave her in her interviews. She could use a boost from the crazy left with a story about...I don't know...how she whores out her children. Where has the crazy left been the last few weeks? People started listening to her and being nervous that you almost cannot tell the difference between her interviews and Tina Fey playing her.
