According to some bonehead on MSNBC, the wonderfully named Operation Matador is part of a greater operation called Raging Bull. Not surprisingly, MSNBC is reporting something that no other news outlet is reporting. For those of you who are not members of the liberal relativist Global Media Conspiracy, this means that MSNBC is, in common parlance, "full of shit."
I watch MSNBC for a grand total of seven minutes (sometimes less) each morning while eating breakfast. I watch MSNBC because I pay $5 for my basic cable and that's the news channel I'm given. Clicking through a legitimate news website isn't practical because my hands are busy forcing tea and toast down my gullet at that time.
During that seven minutes (sometimes less), I always spot at least one error, be it technical or factual. MSNBC can't make it seven damn minutes without screwing up. SEVEN MINUTES! Don't you think that if you did the same thing every day you would be able to hold it together for a seven-minute stretch?!
My favorite recent mistake: When an over-the-shoulder graphic identified finding the bodies of two dead girls as a "grizzly discovery." Ignoring their use of a tired cliché, they got it wrong. This is a grizzly discovery. Or this.
Because my priorities are in order, I didn't know that Tony Danza almost died until two days after the fact. But, I think I speak for every American when I say: Thank you Rusty Wallace for giving it your best effort.
British troops prepare for thumb war*.
My favorite catchphrase at the moment: "Guess what? I got a fever. And the only prescription is more cowbell."
For those of you wondering, today Löwenbräu spent a good deal of time discussing the Whizzinator, whether it is OK for Macaulay Culkin to sleep in Michael Jackson's bed, and the fact that the weather Wednesday was "cool. Not cold, but cool, you know? Not too bad. Just cool. Tomorrow's gonna be 45 and that's cold. There's no arguing that."
No stuffed animals?
