Sometimes I schmooze the news, and sometimes I do awards. Todays crop seems award worthy, so lets see what we got.
The best man for the job is a dumbass award goes to General David Petraeus. The genral was in charge of arming the Iraqi forces between 2004 and 2005. It is quite possible that while we scream about the Iranians arming the insurgents the truth is, we did. If this guy can’t count beans, what the hell is he doing leading all U.S. Forces in Iraq. Assistant dumbass awards go to the Defense Department, and the White House. The General didn’t create the cluster f&%k, he merely presided over it.
The Wizard of Oz Award goes to Congressional Democrats who displayed their lack of heart, brains, and courage by allowing the Bush Administration to bitch slap them again on the wiretapping issue (FISA). The people who elected the democrats are in full scream over this duplicitous behaviour by their elected officials who used the wiretapping like a civil liberties club to get themselves the majority. This isn’t the first time Nancy, Harry, and the rest have turned their back on the voters who ensured their employment.
The Ostrich award goes to every single elected official who has ignored the infrastructure of this country over the last 30 years. This link takes you to a state by state map of every bridge that is either structurally deficient, or structurally obsolete in America. About 50 in my home town alone. Some 25% of the total number of bridges in the country.
The Big Bang Award will not be going to Rush Limbaugh and Rosie O’donnell, as I can’t pin down the facts on their alleged tryst. We’ll have to give it to the next largest collision of heavenly bodies in existence. This is kind of cool if you’re into cosmic astrophysics type stuff.
The Cat Banging a Cheese Grater award goes to Sinead O’connor. She has released her new album Theology, based on god stuff. Yeah, the Sinead that tore up the picture of the pope. Have a listen, and let me know when you’re IQ returns to normal what you think.
The Ebony and Ivory Award almost went to Michael Vick, but it turns out prison bars aren’t made of Ivory. this is actually a very interesting article. Interracial marriage with pro and con looks at the issue.
The Ican haz pink armband Award goes to policemen in Thailand. Hello kitty is finally used as it shoud be. To shame.
The Man This Guy Is A Pissant Award goes to that propaganda is bliss reporter Sean Penn. He is apparently courting another whackjob Leader in Hugo Chavez, the New Fidel of Latin America. Can’t wait to see the end result in print. I wonder what kind of story you see from behind the bulletproof windshield of a man beloved by all?
The I need One Home Run Award goes to Barry Bonds…just kiddin…i wouldn’t give him testicle sweat…it goes to candidate Ron Paul. For a long time his supporters have been waiting for his mainstream chance, and when he got it he lobbed one into centerfield. He seemed shrill, and his interview I thought went quite poorly. He failed to deny a false allegation about the Alex Jones show, claimed the 2nd amendment needs to be changed in favor of less gun control, and recommended allowing younger citizens to opt out of social security. He will make up the money from pulling out of Iraq he claimed. Sorry, Ron. You can only pay for so many things with money you save from pulling out of Iraq. This was not the kind of powerful showing he needed, and even his pauliacs say he got a fair shake. Unfortunately, they also think he was messianic. ( go to the video box. There are two links to his comments)
