So Michael copped a plea. This article says he’ll get 10-12 months, but I think thats less than the guys who snitched on him. Seems to me it’s more likely to be 2 years. All things considered he’s going to pay a stiff price for this, but I would imagine people will think not stiff enough.
The queen of mean has passed away, at the age of 87. Rich women seem to be dieing a lot lately. Anyway, this is one of those articles that talks good and bad about the dead. Enjoy, it’s entertaining reading.
I reckon he had this coming. More text messaging is satan news.
Bear eats man. There is justice. Actually, this is kismet. If you’re dumb or drunk enouhg to get naked in a bear cage with a pair of grizzlies, getting eaten is the best you can hope for. You think he was trying to get laid? Crazy Serbians.
Hurricane Dean is making a mess, and the Cancun vacations have been spoiled. Could be cat 5 soon. It’s raining here too, though I doubt I’ll get any sympathy.
Man you liberals are violent. Here we have another case of an insanely enraged liberal congressman acting out. When will we learn that these treehuggers are dangerous people and should be behind bars? This is just outrageous. Kiddin…get over yourself.

Wow…an airliner exploded..at an airport i’ve been to…this looks pretty wild. Maybe boeing has its ass in another crack. I bet it will be maintenance blamed.
Elvira Arellano gets deported. I’m starting a pool. It took her like 3 days to get back last time. I’m going with an over/under of one week…
Ron Paul strong In Straw polls (10 listed)August 20, 2007
We have here a list of his finishing position in the straw polls. He’s done extremely well and this article questions why the mainstream media isn’t picking up on the story. Besides the fact that Ron Paul is doing well in the polls, and the mainstream media avoids talking avbout that.
Well, I have a theory. It’s not a real complicated one so you won’t have to put on your thinking caps and sit up straight. what the hell, you don’t even have to put down your beer. It’s because they are virtually meaningless. What do we have?
We have seven straw polls named for states, and only Iowa had more than 500 voters. Most were in the 200 range. Thats a very small, generally localized sampling.
We have two taxpayer organization polls. These are surely going to be places Ron Paul does well, because these are organizations that back extreme changes in the tax code. Thats like home field advantage.
Bottom line is these polls are so small, a minute grassroots organization (a local meetup group, drug legalization organization, firearms group, militia) can easily swing the vote. They mean nothing, because nobody was involved. Every other shred of data shows him doing no better than 5% on a national level, and the mainstream media is reporting news, not writing feel good stories for Ron Paul backers. Thats what the damn blogbowl is for.
To summate…quit crowing about the minuscule. Other than Iowa these meant nothing, and he placed 5th their, with two major contenders abstaining. I’m not saying his message isn’t fundamentally sound on the big issues, but his small issues positions are keeping his voting base to small.
authors note: according to my reading, and i’m from Indiana, he tied for first here amongst a couple of hundred voters with around 25% of the vote.
