40 years of hurt

  • Not surprisingly, I suppose, the English tabloids are calling for the firing of England's Sven-Goran Eriksson. Somewhere in Southampton at this very moment, Clive Woodward is rubbing his hands together in glee.

  • All over Texas, paranoid survivalist right-wing nutjobs are shitting themselves.

  • Dumbest radio phrase I can think of at the moment: Mandatory Metallica.

  • Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is an idiot.
    "This is a group of people who are literally coming from flooded areas. They are wet, and they only have the clothes that they are wearing," Romney said Thursday about a group of Katrina evacuees being brought to the Bay State.
    Ignoring the cliché use of "literally" (are they metaphorically coming from flooded areas?), what kind of idiot is he to think, "they are wet?" Wet? Wet?! Romney, you stupid disconnected moron.

  • Nooooooooo! Groin injury? Apparently Charlotte is a little rough on him.

    Nah, this just gives the nutjobs another duty: Standing by to make sure all the Messicans go home.

    So the minutemen just have to stand there and watch! hahahahaha.


    Whew. I gotta say, it's touching how some of these financially strapped countries (Afghanistan, Mexico, Sri Lanka, France... er, did I say France? Just kidding) are coming to our aid. I almost welled up this morning listening to the list and the contributions. It was really nice to see.

    What is a Minuteman to do?

    Somewhat related: When I was in high school and working at Kmart, I answered the phone and it was a cart boy's mom calling him in for the remainder of the week for a groin injury. As I was on the phone, a cashier handed me a bag of money and set it on the phone. I didn't realize it landed on the page button until I heard myself say, "A groin injury?" over the PA through the entire store.

    What is it that Minuteman do?

    Good question, whatever it is it can't be that important is it only takes 60 seconds.

    I'm sure all you Americans are really worried about it, so there's better news about our Gav, mun.
