Tuesdays with Diggie

Palinapalooza Update:
-        Sarah’s Infomercial/Public Service Announcement/Campaign Ad/Alaskan Chamber of Commerce Promotion on TLC lost 40% of its audience from its 5million strong debut last week.  Of the 3million viewers only 885,000 were from the desirable 18-49 demographic, making the median age 57.  I think ABC called this phenomenon 'Flash Forward'.
-        Sarah Half Term herself has graced the valley of the sun this evening as she is kicking off her book tour at the Barnes and Nobles at the Desert Ridge Center in Phoenix.  I heard she is using the Crayola 64 box to sign the books.  Suck it NYC, LA, and San Fran as she isn’t even stopping in your Lamestream Media cities.    
Palin isn’t always wrong, she was correct in predicting that death panels would be established as we began rationing healthcare.  What she didn’t know was that the death panels would be established by her friend Phyllis Diller Brewer in Arizona.  PDB’s failure to properly fund the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System has left 60 people unable to get their life saving transplants.  Instead of dealing with the problem, PDB blamed the new healthcare act; unfortunately, she defunded AHCCC BEFORE healthcare reform passed.
Commerce Department reported that American businesses earned record profits at an annual rate of $1.659 trillion in the third quarter; highest since the government began tracking over 60 years ago.  Hey, I am a proud capitalist, but it does make the corporate world sound like a bunch of spoiled douche bags when they claim the White House is anti-business?  Perhaps they should simply say thank you for the financial bailouts and tax breaks.
NFC West Part Deux: In the latest ESPN power ratings of the 32 NFL teams, the four NFC West teams are ranked 21 (Seattle), 22 (St Louis), 26 (SF), and 27 (Arizona).  NCAA teams Boise State and Oregon could win this division.  The league should consider revoking this division’s playoff spot.
Mr. President, friendly reminder that neither congress nor the courts will overturn DADT; time to step up Mr. Commander-In-Chief and sign that executive order.
Everyone’s talking about the delays at airports due to the new pat down screening procedures.  I wonder how much of the delay is caused by people getting back in line for seconds?
I am going out on a limb and say that Germany will announce its intention to walk away from the Euro within the next 24 months.  The German people have no stomach to be the ones constantly bailing out the weaker less-austere member states.
