Blog bits and bytes from 30,000 feet

Memo to USAirways: It’s not a good idea to offer salmon as an entrée in first class.  The smell of cooked fish in a confined space with recycled air.  Friggin’ brilliant.  I am better off spending the flight in the lavatory.
So regulation kills jobs?  Decades of financial deregulation led to the loss of 8 million jobs over a two year period.  Sorry, not buying.
Republicans want to play chicken with the debt ceiling as a bargaining chip to get concessions from the Obama administration.  Don’t play Mr. President.  You have the pulpit so call them on being reckless. 
Anne Hathaway to play Catwoman in next Dark Knight film; here’s my $7.  Any chance we can get Mila Kunis in the film, and you know…
Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) on the floor of the house: "Just like Goebbels, you say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually people believe it. The Germans said enough about the Jews and the people believed it and you had the Holocaust."  What a shock: there is a Jewish Congressman from Tennessee?
So much for less vitriolic rhetoric in the course of our political discourse of course a horse is a horse.  Did I capture all the words?
Gotta lover potential Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum.  His conflation of President’s Obama race and his own pro-life stance is remarkable.  A fetus is a slave?  Santorum said "Well if that person, human life is not a person, then, I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say, 'We are going to decide who are people and who are not people.'"  Yep.  That’s Ricky Boy, the same socially stunted conservative who equated homosexuality to bestiality.   Please run for President so America can hear your words of wisdom. 
Still smelling the salmon on this flight.  Get this Mother F—king salmon off this mother…..
Favorite line about the subprime mortgage/financial crisis comes from Josh Rosner “A home without equity is just a rental with debt.”  Sad thing is, Rosner said it in 2001 when the borrowing standards were being lowered beyond reason.
