Clinton Flips Out

"I pronounce it as certain that there was never yet a truly greatman that was not at the same time truly virtuous."-- Benjamin Franklin (The Busy-body, No. 3, 18 February 1728)

Love him or hate him you have to admit, it's amazing that this guy was ever President of the United States.

Hugo the Horrible

Venezuelan President revealed to be college sophomore!

This performance by Hugo Chavez at the United Nations was not just bad politics, it had a Nikita Khrushchyov cringe factor. Opening his comments with the suggestion that everyone should read Chomsky is one of the funniest things I've ever heard. "El Diablo" must be laughing his ass off at this clown, and I hope the US is planning an invasion of the Venezuelan oil fields right now - just pump the black gold out of the ground and not pay a dime for it - bring the price of gas in the US down to 50 cents a gallon. That would give Chavez a taste of true US hegemony.

A Grasping, Opportunistic, Dilettante

The 5th anniversary of 9/11 produced some truly stupid editorial comment from the news papers and TV programs. Bush's primetime address to the nation, coupled with the "docudrama" The Path to 9/11 triggered waves of Bushcosis among the smarter set. This mental disorder was perfectly illustrated in the NYTimes editorial page of the Sept. 12th paper* with an editorial entitled "President Bush's Reality" making the point that his "reality" is not real, another editorial entitled "The Fictional Path to 9/11" that defended the Clinton years and chastised the filmmakers for making a movie that didn't fit the Time's understanding of reality, another editorial entitled "From Sacristy to Lockup" where the times laments the "ghostly legion of fallen priests" (I'm sure Pinch Sulzberger can hardly sleep at night over this), and finally an editorial endorsing candidates for the New York Dem. Primary where they supporte…

A short fingered, no class, tyrant

I make no apology for being a Washington Redskins fan - As I have said before they are one of the 3 great teams in NFL history - the others being the Green Bay Packers and the Cleveland Browns - but something has to be done about the current ownership. There is a breed of Redskin fan who's devotion to the team knows no bounds and no limits. They are simple minded and totally focused on the need to win at any cost and have little understanding and even less appreciation for the traditions that make the Redskins great. Danny Snyder is such a fan.

I give you three proof points.
1. Instituting the playing of lousy rock/rap music during time outs in the game (just like every other team)
2. Signing Deion Sanders to play for the Skins in 2000.
3. Inviting Tom Cruise to the home opener last Monday night.

This is a short list of many transgressions that are impacting the spirit of this great institution.

She did it all for the In-N-Out

You can't blame Paris for wanting an In-N-Out Burger and 0.08 percent is not worthy of a DUI charge - you get almost that much alcohol in your morning orange juice. Two glasses of wine and you can't drive - come on.

The concerned citizen's at RIDL (Responsibility In DUI Laws, Inc.) will tell you that Paris Hilton's first mistake was to submit to a sobriety field test. It doesn't matter if you've had 2 or 20 bottles of hooch, you won't be able to pass that field test.

I understand that the Mothers Against Drunk Driving weren't too happy with Paris but that sort of brings me to the subject of this posting - Paris Hilton's Mom. That's right, I blame Kathy Hilton for this and so much else that's wrong with little Paris - starting with her god damn name. Six years ago I spoke with the admissions director of the private school where Paris Hilton received her education and asked point blank if the school had any influence on the way Paris misbehaves …

Joe Blow

If you're a "liberal" and the Washington Post writes editorials against you - you're a joke.

"It's unfortunate that so many people took him seriously."
