Murder by Taco

My hometown rag finally decides to run a story on political prisoner Siegelman.

Alabama in spotlight not always good | TimesDaily.com | Florence, AL:

"Alabama is again in the national spotlight, and it's not flattering news."
________

Thank jeebus Abrams is on the case. He's about the only one in the traditional media.

Another reason to dig Obama. Intelligence in the Obama family runeth over.

Obama's Girls Not Fans of Britney, Paris:

"Barack Obama says his two daughters are fans of Hannah Montana and Beyonce, but think anything to do with Britney Spears and Paris Hilton is 'yuck."
_______

In case you'd like to hate on him, though. Here's how it will play out:

How to hate Barack Obama / Right now, deep in the GOP dungeons, they're planning their racist, disgraceful assault. Whatever will it be?:

"The name thing is just too damn easy. Childish, sophomoric, a given.

Of course, this doesn't mean they won't use it. A lot."
_______

New YouTube love from a Pea:

YouTube - We Are The Ones Song by will.i.am:
"people say Obama's words are just words...
but...
when was the last time 'words' weren't important...???...

when was the last time a great leader didn't use words to lead...??...
when was the last time a person didn't use words to describe how they felt...?...
when was the last time 'words' weren't empowering...?...

and we can all recall the last time 'words' were used to divide us and install fear..."

Taco murders are becoming epidemic in the bay area. I'm sticking to Indian buffets until taco thing chills.

Brings a whole new aspect to the phrase 'dying for a feed'. Better to get the delivery option.

JPW said...

Yeah, but the delivery option in the States is as follows:

They knock on the door and you open.
They hand you the food.
You had them the money.
They pull a gun on you and take the food back.

Brutal.

Sounds like a pretty extreme way to combat the obesity epidemic. Doctors have been saying for years that takeaways are bad for your health, but I didn't know they'd give you lead poisoning. Bloody hell!

New Zealanders have a disturbing habit of assaulting taxi drivers, making it bloody difficult for me to get a ride out to my home in the country after a night out in town.


Settling in for a day of watching the primaries - Fox, CNN, BBC - it'll be on all day. The slow and painful demise of Hillary Clinton has been compulsive viewing. There's even a letter to the editor in my local paper today giving them shit for not having more coverage of Ron Paul! To be honest she had a point, Ron Paul seems like a pretty interesting guy. The Repubs obviously can't stand him, but he seems to have a pretty sophisticated world view.

JPW said...

The painful demise continues, unfortunately, ABAT.

Dig a little deeper on Ron Paul and you'll see that he's your basic Republican nut job.

Lay off the taxi drivers, ABAT!
