A Leader Speaks

Mitt Romney gave a speech in Detroit the other day. No one cared.
Who's bright idea was it to hold this speech in an almost empty stadium? This crowd would fit in Auditorium 3 at the local multiplex but they said, nah, let's do Ford Field instead. All those empty seats make Mitt's graying temples really pop.

I'd call it an embarrassment, if it wasn't an embarrassment that's so richly deserved.

Alabama Face Guy

The story.

Stuff

1) The final GOP debate was on CNN tonight. All eyes were on Mesa, AZ where the weather was beautiful and...

Oh, there's a game on? As soon as John King's face popped up, we switched it. After all...who represents America's future better? Mitt Romney...or Blake Griffin?

2) The case might be thin against this animal rights activist, with her anti-fur crusade/arranged hit, but this woman is clearly an idiot. Human beings are animals, too.

3) My Mom turned me onto Shameless (the US version with Bill Macy), knowing that I'd love it. I mean, what's not to love. It's gritty. There's plenty of sex, cursing and violence. (I'm not so enlightened that I can't admit that I'm attracted to such things in entertainment.) But what I love about the show is the humor.

I was sitting at work, thinking of the scene with the white social worker with the black accent (no embed, but here's a link), and I just busted up laughing. People looked at me funny, but so what?

I'll be keeping an eye on that show. Good stuff.

Arizona

Does the State of Arizona have any sheriffs who are NOT corrupt dickheads?

Sorry, you were born gay and decided to be a Republican, Sheriff Babeu. Rather than being the victim of your immigrant boyfriend, you seem to be a victim of your own poor choices.

My advice? Move to a different, more reasonable state. New Mexico is nice, if you can stomach being called a "New Mexican," that is.

More Chris Christie

You gotta love Chris Christie. Well, that's what I keep hearing anyway. You gotta love him because he's such a dick. Dickishness on the right is a requirement.

But I love him because his logic is so, well, logical.

Here he is responding to Warren Buffet's calls to raise taxes on the rich:
"He should just write a check and shut up," Christie said. "I'm tired of hearing about it. If he wants to give the government more money, he's got the ability to write a check -- go ahead and write it."
Problem is that Christie doesn't favor this approach when it comes to other things.

Don't like abortion? I'm tired of hearing about it. Just don't get one and shut up.

Don't like gay marriage? I'm tired of hearing about it. If you're not gay, you're not getting one anyway, so just shut up about it.

Worried you saw a middle finger during the Super Bowl? Tired...hearing...you know what's next: Shut up about it.

Shut up, shut up, shut up. I'm tired of hearing about it.
