The 7-9 Seahawks will host Saints in NFC playoff game. Now, I understand rules are rules and some team has to win the division and wildcard teams can’t host wildcard round playoff games. But, not since Bristol Palin reached the DWTS finals have so few did so little to get so far.
In its annual word banishment tradition Lake Superior State University has deemed viral as the word above all that must go. Does that mean popular videos will now go bacterial?
In a new 60 minutes/Vanity Fair poll, respondents were asked: What would you do first to balance the budget? The results:
- 61% said increase taxes on the wealthy
- 20% said cut defense spending
- 4% said cut Medicare
- 3% said cut Social Security
- 12% apparently didn’t answer
So if the Republicans are true to their word, they will increase taxes on the wealthy because from Boehner and McConnell on down they keep reminding us that the American people spoke on Election Day. Well they spoke in this survey too.
First several thousand birds fall from the sky dead and now 100,000 dead Drum fish have turned up along a 20 mile stretch on the Arkansas River. Is it time to call Mulder and Scully out of retirement? Nope. Officials think it may have been suicide; after all they live in Arkansas.
The incoming gimmick-driven Republican majority is now insisting that any new bill must contain the appropriate citation from the Constitution granting Congress the authority to pass such a law. Well Boehner-heads this infatuation with the Constitution is rather silly since you can easily site Article I of the Constitution: The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence (sic) and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States. The real shame is the fact that if you want to prove Congress has the authority, you don’t use the Constitution, you use the precedence in case law. For more info on the Judiciary, see Article III of the Constitution.
Is Brett Favre really done? Well we have all seen this movie before, but perhaps Rocky, errr Brett really will walk away. Or should I say dance away? Yeah, he’ll be on DWTS next season. You heard it here first. By the way, Brett was just named, along with the Jets, in a sexual harassment lawsuit related to lewd text messages .The complaints were filed by ex massage therapists Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole. Man Brett must have unlimited text messaging, though at this rate he is running out of friends and family.
The last two Cleveland Browns Head Coaches were Romeo Crennel and the most recently fired Eric Mangini (not calling him Mangenius anymore, eh?), both former New England Patriot defensive coordinators under Bill Belichick. Any chance Browns hire ex-Patriot Offensive Coordinator and most recently fired Broncos Head Coach Josh McDaniels? Doubt it.
