* Obama filmed a campaign ad in the White House. If they wanted shots of Obama in action, shouldn’t the video have been done on a golf course?
* Chris Wallace apologized for asking Michelle Bachman “Are you a flake?” I’d rather he’d just ask more questions of everyone that gets to the heart of the matter. Like if he gets a sit down with President Obama, ask, “Are you a useless idiot?” If Obama answers no, make sure to have the follow up question ready, “Then why do you fail at everything?”
* Democrats are pushing amnesty as something that will help the economy, because if you have two few jobs and add more people… I have no idea how to end that sentence in any logical manner. The Democrats are claiming that if it passes, the illegals will be able to get better jobs and pay more taxes, but if these better jobs are out there, shouldn’t we be telling the millions of unemployed American citizens about them first? With things like this and Obamacare, at what point do we conclude the Democrats don’t even care about the economy… at least not as much as left-wing pet issues.
* In a 7-2 decision, the Supreme Court decided that violent videogames are a protected form of speech. I guess that makes sense; when I rip someone’s head off in Mortal Kombat, is done seem like I’m expressing an opinion of some sort.
People argue that violent videogames influence violent behavior, but it’s not like playing Angry Birds has made we want to slingshot birds at real pigs. I did beat someone half to death when he nudged me and messed up my shot, but that almost seems like a separate issue.
* The TSA gave extra scrutiny to a cancer-stricken 95-year-old woman and alleged even had her remove her adult diaper. At what point do we become more scared of the TSA than we are of terrorists? The terrorists harm us to a much greater degree than the TSA, but it’s also extremely unlikely we’ll get attacked on a plane flight by them. Being humiliated by the TSA is much much more likely, though.
That’s not to say TSA agents are bad people. Of course, if they do enjoy humiliating grandma, that just means they have enthusiasm for their job.
* Rod Blagojevich was convicted of trying to sell Obama’s senate seat, and the jury said he was “likable” but clearly guilty — which sounds like a general description of some of the better politicians.
Really, though, it seems like to save time, every Chicago politician should end his term by going straight to jail and can later try to prove if he did nothing wrong. Few will.
