• Ralph Nader: EPIC DOUCHE!

Nader, who as Jeremy noted, is an asshole for running again, is running his fucking mouth:

There’s only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He’s half African-American. Whether that will make any difference, I don’t know. I haven’t heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos. Payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. What’s keeping him from doing that? Is it because he wants to talk white? He doesn’t want to appear like Jesse Jackson? We’ll see all that play out in the next few months and if he gets elected afterwards.


• 2 George Carlin Jokes

Last summer, I was lucky enough to see George Carlin perform at The Orlean casino in Las Vegas. How lucky I truly was, I didn’t know until late last night when my dad informed me of the passing of this comedy legend.

Tonight, Olbermann ran the interview he conducted with Carlin last autumn, but I’d like to remember Carlin with two jokes I had the good fortune of writing down in a chat with a friend after I’d gotten back from Vegas. Sorry if these aren’t worded exactly how Mr. Carlin said them, but I believe they still carry the same punch. For the record, he got just as many hisses for these jokes as he got laughs, and after getting said hisses he scolded the audience, telling them that they’d be repeating these jokes in the car ride home, and for days to come. If only he knew I’d be repeating them to you all today:


How does the mountain redneck girl know when her mother’s having her period?
When her brother’s dick tastes funny.


So, a Daughter sees her father walk out of the shower.
She asks him, “daddy when am I going to get a penis?”
The Father says, “When Mom leaves for work.”
Carlin on this joke: See, it’s surprising because the audience didn’t see the twist coming. The twist being that the mother has a job.

Mr. Carlin, I salute you, with the seven words salute:

Shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits.

• At Least The Mets Still Suck

Celtics won the NBA Championship in the same decade as the Sox winning the Series and the Pats winning the Super Bowl. The Aughts are the most horrendous sports decade ever, except for Eli Manning beating Tom Brady a few months ago. Always gotta remember that one.

At the same time though, perennial bitch factory Shea Stadium still is home to the most 2nd rate team on the planet. Not just in players this time, but in GM Mental faculties. Who’d have thought it would take Minaya to make Hank Steinbrenner look like a sane decent person? I think we’ll see Willie recover, maybe even come back to the pinstripes. He could be a good base coach or something. I don’t particularly see him wanting to be in a big spotlight anymore.

And it even spilled over into last night, Reyes acting like a snot nosed brat when he got pulled from the game. Santana being a chump, again.

No links, still, because all of this stuff is old news. No PShop because I’m a little busy.

• Not Tim Russert, Not Tim …

Using curses or some way to show energy is feeling shallow and empty at the moment.

I’m in shock. I can’t believe this is true. So full of life, at 58, Mr. Russert has died.

My thoughts to Big Russ, Luke, and Maureen. This is just not right.
