Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.

Transfer of power

Not sure why everyone seems to be so impressed that we're having a smooth transfer of power. Are we supposed to be proud of the fact that their aren't armed factions dueling in the streets over this? What other third-world chaos should I be patting myself on the back for avoiding this week?

Clinton vs. McCain

I keep hearing how a significant portion of Hillary supporters would vote McCain if Obama got the nomination.

Just 2 things to say about that:

1, I don't really believe it - these are people in the heat of the campaign and they'll say anything. When the inevitable occurs and Hill ends up rallying behind Obama as the nominee, most of that animosity will disappear.

2, anyone who's willing to trade a Hillary vote for a McCain vote is so stupid they probably shouldn't even be voting.

Prison terms

Just read an article about Giants' WR Lawrence Tynes' brother Mark. He's currently serving a 27 year prison term. His crime? Selling marijuana.

Just the other week I read an article about some loser out on parole who killed his girlfriend and then subsequently offed himself. He had served less than 10 years in jail. His crime? Murder.

People are so stupid.

Even Steven

On 9/11/2001, al Qaida killed almost 3,000 of my fellow countrymen for absolutely no good reason.

In response, and over the past 5 years, George Bush made sure that 4,000 MORE of my countrymen were killed for no good reason. That'll teach 'em!!!

Isn't it illegal to make decisions about insurance coverage based on geography??

Mortgage insurers, whose backing is required for borrowers who can't afford the traditional 20 percent down payment on a home, have already flagged nearly a quarter of the nation's ZIP codes where they refuse to insure some home loans.

I find it hilarious when racists like Billy O'Reilly get angry about being called a racist.


I just read an article that confused me. Kraft and Sara Lee are worried about shrinking profits due to the rising cost of their inputs, namely beef and pork. This is, of course, exactly the opposite of what's happening with the oil-refining industry. The cost of oil has increased by a factor of six over the past several years, yet Exxon and the rest experience record profits. Someone please explain this to me.

Bear Stearns

So now that Bear Stearns is being purchased for pennies on the dollar, was that "little" cash injection the other day just a complete waste of cash?? Wouldn't surprise me. Go Republicans!!!

Horatio's debate school

THEIR COMMENT: Obama is where he is because he is black

YOUR RESPONSE: laughter (while pointing at them)


Hard to believe (no it isn't), but Elizabeth Hasselbeck really did intimate that it must have been because Mrs. Spitzer didn't let her husband get his freak on often enough that the ex-guv was forced to visit hookers.

The really sad thing is that there are about 1,000,000 Elizabeth Hasselbeck clones running around the world. It's true. I've met them. And I kept count.

Stupid Non-news

Must our sex-obsessed corporate press unearth EVERY last sordid detail of this stupid Spitzer story?

Spousal support

Why are the wives always trotted out to "stand by their man" whenever some random public official decides to come clean about cheating, or visiting prostitutes, or whatever lurid thing they're meant to have done? Why do they stand for it? How does it make them look anything but ridiculous to be seen on a stage while their husband details exactly how much of a scumbag he is?

All I'm saying is if I'm Mrs. Spitzer, I tell my husband that if he expects me to be photographed at press conferences, and appear in front page photos and publicly go down with the ship, he's living in a dreamworld.

Wow. Foster won. That's kind of a big deal. Oberweis is a really horrible candidate (even for Republicans) but still, this district should have gone his way. If only the NRCC could've wasted even more money on this race.

Kreskin-esque Prognostication Abilities

What the hell. I'm sitting at my computer, might as well make it two in a row. I hope Upyernoz remembers (and possibly can produce) my comment from years ago predicting that Obama would be the next president.


I've been MIA for awhile now. Well, I'm working a full time job, going to class in the evening for my MBA at Kellogg, and my wife is currently pregnant with twins, which will be our 2nd and 3rd children. So there's not a lot of time for frivolous things like writing on blogs no one reads. Maybe I'll try to connect this thing with Facebook or something and that will inspire me to write more often.

This blog is based on a true story.
