They have effing crazy eyes

How amazing is Boston as a sports city?  All of its current coaches of the four major sports have won titles for their respective Boston franchise.  All four major teams have won a title in the last seven years.  The longest title-free streak?  The Belichick-Brady led Patriots.  Yo Foxboro time to get your act together…slackers.

Republicans on the House franking commission, which screens the content of mass mailings paid for with Congressional funds, have become more sensitive since the May 24 special election in New York. 
The commission has objections to language stating that the GOP budget would “end” Medicare. The commission asked a Virginia Democrat to rephrase the passage to say the plan could “change” or “could privatize portions” of the federal health insurance program for seniors and the disabled…
Similarly, the commission asked Rep. Ed Perlmutter to strike the words “eliminate” and “dismantle” in favor of the word “change” in a flier about the Medicare proposal. The commission also asked the Colorado Democrat to remove references to Ryan, replace “voucher” with “premium support system” and change “privatize” to “revise government program with support from private insurance companies.”  This reminds me of the late 1970’s when Boston Sports radio host Eddie Andelman and his crew on the Sports Huddle were told by station management to cut the criticisms of then-Red Sox manager Don Zimmer because the Red Sox were threatening to move their broadcast rights to another station.  Not to be coerced into silence, Andelman and his crew simply started referring to Zimmer as Chiang kai-Shek.  So instead of saying “The Ryan plan will end Medicare and replace it with a voucher system”, how about “Willy Wonka wants you have to have an everlasting gobstopper as long as you have a golden ticket.”

Is it me or do Republican women have the crazy eye?  Callista Gingrich, Michelle Bachmann, and Cindy McCain.  Where’s Kim Carnes when you need her?  Also, could someone dedicate some foreskins to these ladies so they could have eyelids?




   
Way to go Vancouver, between 130 and 140 people were sent to hospital, including three people with stab wounds and two suffering trauma, while a number of others were treated in the courtyard of a downtown hospital for the effects of tear gas.  Most people were treated for tear gas and pepper spray effects, lacerations, facial trauma, substance abuse and head injuries.  I guess we should be lucky they don’t have our liberal gun laws in Canada.

The Senate voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to eliminate billions of dollars in support for the U.S. ethanol industry, sending a strong message that the era of big taxpayer support for biofuels is ending.  The 73-27 vote may ultimately be symbolic since the White House has vowed not to repeal ethanol subsidies fully and the bill the repeal language is attached to is not expected to make it into law.  Kudos to the Senate, and shame on the White House.  This $6Billion savings would be a great start to show the world that the days of corporate welfare are over.  The White House needs to understand, while this bill is far from perfect, it does represent a move in the right direction.  Good is not the enemy of perfect.
John Boehner is either a chicken or a traitor.  Boehner is playing the War Power Resolutions Act card and is telling the President that come Sunday Mr. Obama will no longer have the power to continue to wage combat activities in Libya.  I knew Boehner and Gaddafi looked a little too cozy at that tanning salon outside Cincinnati. 
Congratulations to Ayman al-Zawahiri.  He has been named the new leader of Al Qaeda. According to his Facebook page, al-Zawahiri loves Swedish porn, playing Angry Birds in his PJ’s, large compounds in the Tora Bora region along the Afghan/Pakistan border, and Dancing with the Mullahs.
