Piss and Vinegar: The Diggapedia Cocktail

I am Rafael Cabrera-Bello.  Who is Rafael Cabrera-Bello?  RCB was disqualified when he lost his 11th and final ball during the 2nd round of the South African Open.  Roy McAvoy anybody?
Word is incoming House Speaker Boehner likes the occasional cocktail.  I have to assume he was drunk when he pulled this boner: granting Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) a seat on the House Intelligence Committee.  That’s like putting Charlie Rangel on the House Ethics Committee.  Some famous Bachmannisms:
-         “But there isn’t one even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.”
-         “If we took away the minimum wage-if conceivably it was hone-we could potentially wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.”
-        “And what a bizarre time we’re in, when a judge will say to little children that you can’t say the pledge of allegiance, but you must learn that homosexuality is normal and you should try it.”
John McCain once again proves he is not a maverick, but a sore loser.  His statements on the floor of the Senate today during the DADT repeal debate included “I hope that when we pass this legislation that we will understand that we are doing great damage,” he said. “Today is a very sad day,” McCain sighed later.  McCain has moved from Grandpa Simpson to George Wallace.  Two letters for you Senator: F and U.
This blogger continues to get excited about the Red Sox moves this off season.  While losing V-Mart and Beltre will hurt, adding Adrian Gonzales, Carl Crawford, Bobby Jenks, and now Dan Wheeler are HUGE.
Watched Voyage of the Damned last night.  The 1976 film about the HM St. Louis and its 900 Jewish passengers trying to escape Europe for Cuba in 1939 is a sad reminder of the holocaust and why this blogger is and always will be pro immigration.
Thumbs up to Republican Senators Brown (MA), Snowe (ME), Collins (ME), Kirk (IL), Voinovich, (OH), and Murkowski (AK) for paving the way for the DADT repeal.  Thumbs down to Elephant in Donkey skin Joe Manchin (D-WV). 
The Zadroga Bill, the $7.2Billion bill to provide healthcare coverage for 9/11 first responders, will hopefully come to vote in the Senate during the lame duck session.  The most sickening aspect of whether this just bill is passed is the anti-passage lobbying of the U.S Chamber of Commerce.  The d-bags at the USCoC want to keep open a tax loophole benefiting foreign corporations that the $7.4 billion bill would have closed to provide funding for the American emergency workers.  So tax loopholes for financial markets are more important than the wellness of those that put their lives on the line for us.
