Imagine There’s No A/C…

It’s easy if you try. This fellow is even more idealistic than John Lennon, and based solely on “Imagine” that’s saying a lot.

Forget false imprisonment, this momo should be locked up for uttering “Ironing is woman’s work”. Then in prison he can find out that gender roles get a tad blurry…

When an news item contains the phrase “Mexican Clown” it’s not going to be good and it isn’t.

Awesome article on Yankee Mariano Rivera, perhaps the best closer of all time and a seemingly model human being. I know he’s a Yankee but I just can’t bring myself to heap on him the same loathing I have for the rest of his teammates.

More World Cup fall out… Spain welcomes her heroes with style… Paul the Octopus wins something México will never win, a World Cup… Tell us how you really feel Johnny.

A study by the CDC? With collaboration from what, the state of Arizona? The goal of this study is laid bare for anyone willing to connect the dots, someone call Oliver Stone.

Next time you see a “metal detectorist” at the beach, give the man a wide berth.

Oprah: Biased? No Question. Racist? Hmm…

I create feelings in others that they themselves don’t understand. — Lightning McQueen

Well that’s one thing Barack Obama has in common with the Pixar creation. At least when it comes to the popular Ms. Winfrey, who said this after the Senator’s recent acceptance speech,

What I saw with Barack Obama was something that was transcendent and I felt transformational for me as a human being and for this country.

Hey, I hear you O! I’ve already given the best reasons that qualify Mr. Obama for the Presidency:

  1. He took the time to take pictures with the Texas football team
  2. He wears Asics

Those 2 trump what has been told to me : “he gives a good speech”, “he reminds me of JFK”, “he’s for change”

So now Oprah (unabashed Obama honk) is in the news for refusing to have Sarah Palin on her insanely popular show. Granted, O will have her on after the election (probably provided that the GOP doesn’t win) but not anytime before.

This prompted the good impartial folks over at ABC to ask the following question:
Is Oprah Biased? Host Won’t Interview Palin

Well of course she’s biased ABC (takes one to know one?) but the better question is, “Is she racist?”

I know it sound preposterous (it’s impossible for libs to be racist) but let’s play a bit of “A Time to Kill” pretend.

You have an immensely popular white talk show host who is endorsing a young, charismatic “biracial” GOP Presidential candidate (For example, George Prescott Bush, right). The Dems have a woman VP candidate on their ticket but said talk queen refuses to have her on the show.  Now imagine that the Democratic VP candidate is black.

How long would it take for the race-hustlin’ Sharptons and Jacksons of the world to cry bloody racism?

A shade longer than it took Mr. Cruise to leap into O history…

[For the record Ms. Winfrey, I don’t think you’re racist]

Hungry Heron Could Face Murder Charge… Readies Defense

From Disney’s Finding Nemo,

Sorry if I ever took a snap at you. Fish gotta swim,
birds gotta eat. — Nigel the Pelican

Well, the heron (near top of the food chain, baby!) pictured in the following piece, “Pictured:  The moment a mother loses a desperate battle to save her duckling from the jaws of a heron”, had no such apologies for the duckling or mama duck.

Here is the final frame from the sad, albeit natural, story:  a heron just being a heron, or homicidal maniac?

I wonder if people who like to pretend that humans are no different from animals, you know the “[a duck] is a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy” crowd, will put pressure on local authorities to press murder charges on this heron for the dastardly deed?

I know what the heron’s defense will be:  Couldn’t help it, my DNA made me do it
