Quick Hits

I go one day without posting, and then there are 80 billion stories that need my attention. Here we go:

They say these teachers are doing nothing, but that doesn't give you enough information. Many teachers sit in front of the class doing nothing. These people are on paid vacations.

If someone threatens to wipe you off the map, you'd talk about it, right? Well, either you'd be wrong, or I'm not listening to the right people.

Obama finally condemned Iran this weekend for slaughtering protesters (be sure to read the info before the video). It took a few more days for him to decide to disinvite them from the 4th of July barbecue at the White House. Neither of these actions should be construed as evidence he's finally grown a spine.

Transformers 2 premiered last night to the chagrin of liberals. It may take a swipe at Obama. And it's supposedly racist. Look, anybody who's observed 14-25 year old white males in the last few years can tell you that seeing guys speak in ebonics and having gold teeth can mean you're in the 'hood, or it can mean you're at an all-white high school.

Obama's Health Care informercial airs tonight. The timing's good, because improved healthcare will come in handy when North Korea nukes us. And Iran's clearly not worth our attention. But I've enjoyed this quote from the Bamster regarding healthcare:

"If private insurers say that the marketplace provides the best quality health care; if they tell us that they're offering a good deal, then why is it that the government, which they say can't run anything, suddenly is going to drive them out of business? That's not logical.” (story here)

Like logic's really your strong point. But you're right, I can't possibly imagine how government will run private insurers out of business.

Wednesday's big news is that they found out where Mark Sanford's been: Argentina. Apparently, he has a little filly down there. There's nothing like a Republican pulling a John Edwards (or Bill Clinton or ...) to shift the focus away from Obama, who's really been wilting under the spotlight. The liberals would be thanking God if they went for that sort of thing. Thanks, Mark.

Of course, one benefit of the Sanford saga was that I got a chuckle out of this.

And finally, I'm afraid that all the other big news of the past two days are taking too much attention away from this. I'm not sure what's been going on in my home state lately, but I blame the heat. And Brad Henry.

I think my biggest problem with this story is that they say she was flashing her headlights, and they caught her in a car with her blouse open. Which set of headlights are we talking about here? Another funny thing that resulted from this story is that when I posted it on Twitter, a friend remarked that they got really scared when they saw her picture. Like a chick putting out for potato chips is going to be hot. I'm sure that was edited out of Pretty Woman.

Lays should use that in a marketing campaign. "So good you'll whore yourself out for them!"

    That was literal laugh-out-loud for me. Maybe Burger King can do some kind of co-promotion for chips to go along with their big seven-incher.
