Romney RINO

leave a comment »

The Mor(m)on is going to get the nomination, so in 2012 you’ll have a choice between A) an asshat who thinks the government health care is a good idea, and B) the incumbent.

Nevertheless, this picture made me laugh.

Bailout Blues

leave a comment »

Only $1.3 billion? I’m impressed.

Seriously.

U.S. taxpayers likely lost $1.3 billion in the government bailout of Chrysler, the Treasury Department announced Thursday.

The government recently sold its remaining 6% stake in the company to Italian automaker Fiat. It wrapped up the 2009 bailout that was part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program six years early.

Barbaric Remake

A Conan the Barbarian remake — really?

Like it’s that hard to come up with a “revenge” script with swords and loincloths.

Oh well, at least we’ll get to see California’s future governor 20 years from now.

Junk Holiday

So earlier today I learned that today is “National Junk Food Day.”

Well for some people I see using Hoverounds at Walmart and Sam’s Club, it appears that every day is National Junk Food Day.

Degrees Of Disclosure

leave a comment »

And if this info-babe and her producers had degrees in Journalism, they would have spent a few seconds prior to this interview doing research on Mr. Brooks.

And in case the YouTube link doesn’t work:

Matt Lewis flags this must-see moment from MSNBC, admittedly a phrase heard only slightly more often than “the good judgment of Anthony Weiner.” Contessa Brewer gets into an argument over economic policy with Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), and tries to talk him down by snidely asking him whether he has a degree in economics … which, to Brewer’s embarrassment, Brooks does.

Wait a second, the info-babe HAS a journalism degree?

Since Brewer made an issue out of having an economics degree before engaging in economics debates, she must have a doctorate in the subject herself, right? Not exactly. According to her Wikipedia entry, Brewer has a baccalaureate in broadcast journalism (magna cum laude). Apparently they didn’t teach interviewing skills at Syracuse, or logic either, as a requisite for the degree.

To be fair, I also have a journalism degrees. Goes to show how valuable that particular degree is in the grand scheme of things, eh?
