Big Papi Is Amazed

The rest of us have to settle for being appalled. When will we get a real commissioner?

At this point I'd even seetle for a Commish Bush. He liked the baseball thing and it was his one endeavor that he was moderately capable at.

On Distribution

It wasn't so very long ago that a piece of human detritus like Glenn Beck or Lou Dobbs would have been dependent on a retyped mailing list, a mimeograph machine and clear channel (small c) radio to get his fevered ravings out.

Now they get airtime in our homes every night. Ain't it grand?
Lou Dobbs suggested on his radio show this past Wednesday, right before
the Gates flare-up, that Obama
be an illegal immigrant
, tying this into his usual preoccupation.
"I'm starting to think we have a document issue," Dobbs said. "You suppose he's
un-- no, I won't even use the word 'undocumented,' it wouldn't be

Ron White On Robert Gates

"Mr. White, you are being charged with drunk in public-K!" I was like,
"Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey! I was drunk in a bar! They, threw me into
public-K! I don't want to be drunk in public! I wanna be drunk in a bar, which
is perfectly legal! Arrest them!"

The cop asked him to step out onto the porch and then arrested him for being disorderly in front of the neighbors. The lawyers will have a field day with this if it isn't smoothed soon.

Deep Thought

About Gratitude

When they're really in trouble, personal, life-shattering trouble, they don't go looking for a tax-cutter or a budget-slasher. They head straight for the office of the sneakiest lawyer they can find.

And then they bad-mouth the lawyers as soon as he gets them off.

Blogger Asks Questions About Walker's Scouting Accomplishments

Kevin at Lakeshore Laments poses a theory of his own about Walker's CV.
[snip]...ask to see if Walker's Eagle Scout project was completed, or that all of
his merit badges were earned.

But he firmly holds that Walker doesn't have to show proof of his Wisconsin lineage to be elected Governor. It's as if he can't tell if it's a joke or not.

I was in front of the curve on this one. It's just that, when you tweet to yourself, ...[sigh]

Suddenly, My Purpose In Life Became Clear

Hi, Jim Brooks.

Michele Bachmann (BachmannforMN6) is
now following your updates on Twitter.

See The King and I Today Then Go See It Tonight

The King and I continues tonight and Friday at the High School PAC. Tickets in advance at Piggly Wiggly or the Evansville Pharmacy are just $10. Twelve dollars at the door is still a bargain. See the ECT website for details.

In the meantime...

Neumann On Alternative Fuels

Jay Weber posts a Neumann statement that rambles down both sides of the highway, both supporting ethanol and rejecting it depending on circumstances. What caught my eye was this little bit of waffling.
Again, to be very clear, I do not to my knowledge even know anyone tied to
the ethanol issue. No one is pushing me because of the ethanol

Hell, I'm not running for Governor and I know dozens of people tied to the ethanol issue in one form or another. Neumann might want to do a little catching up before he starts going in front of live microphones.

Last night.
"I asked myself, "What would Jesus do? So, I plowed his lawn with salt,
set him on fire and sent him to Hell. It worked out nicely."

It's Just A Southern Thing

You wouldn't understand.

Can You Imagine?

Just think of the reaction if the headlines had read...

Governor Doyle resigns to concentrate on higher office.


JB van Hollen gives up AG post to concentrate on Governor run.


Walker believes he can better serve the people of Milwaukee County by resigning.

Even though that last one could be true there is no serious politician who would believe that walking away from your sworn duty for reasons you cannot explain shows anything but poor judgement.
