It's a good year to be a HELP I'M TRAPPED IN A CLICHE FACTORY

Barrack, you're a star, but DAMN IT AL WHY WON'T YOU BE MY PRESIDENT.

Not that I don't hold out hope. I do. As Obama himself said, the smart money was never on the forty-something black guy. But even as the polls drift towards Clinton he at least claims to have a plan. No primaries yet... But one would have to believe that if Gore managed to spend 8 years in the White House Obama would be a much better candidate afterwards.

This Clinton by any other name... All of her husband's downside without his upside. And inertia could very well deliver her to a national election that she's less likely to win than the other Democratic candidates.

I fucking hate the partisan binary and the bullshit it spawns. Actually I fucking hate the binary default that seems to be ingrained in our society. It's infected our music, our food, our sexuality...

Somehow the anchors at Fox Sports thought that Joe Torre leaving the Yankees was a bigger story than the game they were commentating. It's hardly news that there is an overwhelming concentration of complete douchebags involved with sports in New York.

The coach for the New York Jets snitched on the man who made his career, creating scandal by calling him on a practice that (a) offered no real advantage over other methods that were completely legal (b) was used more or less universally by NFL teams.

The fans at the Meadowlands cheered when their starting quarterback got hit hard and fell down repeatedly trying to get back up.

Anyone who knows basketball didn't need to hear about sexual harassment to know that Isiah Thomas is a morally bankrupt dickweed. And the Knicks signed him to a multi-year extension as head coach even after he triggered a brawl in Denver by instructing his players to foul hard in the paint.

So when the Yankees offer perhaps the greatest manager in the history of baseball a one year deal at a pay cut and a second year only if he delivered a World Series title--the signing of which would be the equivalent of releasing a public statement that he's a spineless wuss-- it should come as no surprise that they didn't ditch him in a way that would allow them both some dignity. They're assholes. At least Stienbrenner would have straight up fired him.

The other day I saw the Celtics obliterate the Knicks in the preseason home opener, from was probably the best seat I've ever sat in to see an NBA game. 101-61. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen were amazing. Hell, if the Patriots keep playing like they've been playing and the Sox pull these last two games out....

I'm just saying.

I may need to be listening to more metal, but I think that the Dethalbum has been the best metal album I've heard since Hypnotize by System of a Down. And it's by a fictional band. Hmm...

  1. I think you need to be listening to more metal but anyhow most of the sports stuff as lost on me.

    I don't think the Hil is less likely to win, there is some indication she is winning over around twenty five percent of the conservative Christian women. She will get the women who were going to vote for Obama and Edwards. I hate to say thi, so won't say it yet except for here, we are going to have another Clinton winning the Dem nomination and we are going to have a women president unless something unforeseen happens.

    I'd prefer Obama but he started his campaign in a decent way and remained decent and fair, trying to use rhetoric to make his case and it failed - so far. I prefer both his an Edwards basic ideology's but am at the point where I think Obama may just be too naive and too unwilling to take shit by the horns and shake it up, I think he lost his window of opportunity somewhere along the line. Maybe he can get it back open maybe not. We'll see.

    Gore - he is not on my radar at all. I have no idea if he is planning a run or not, I doubt it so I haven't even considered voting for him.


    good luck to your Red Sox. I'm going to a charity dinner. ;(

  3. cooper: A large percentage of the population can't stand her. And even if she does scrape by, I don't think that would be good for the country

    Look for Obama to start shitstirring when the primaries get nearer.

    Anonymous: Fuck you, dipshit. SOAD is either prog metal or alt metal depending on who you ask. And if you want to sling shit don't pussy out and go anonymous.

  4. Lol, I could give a shit about the White House, but, gawddamn it and the coverage of TorreWatch 2007.

    The entire friggin' NLCS on TBS - every break had something about Joe Torre possibly leaving. ESPN, Fox, even TSN in Canada...

    Annoying as hell.

  6. Jason: You are a true American =P

    I think I hate most sports broadcasting. Could you do me a favor and overthrow Fox Sports?

    Sally: Fair enough. And I'm so glad that you think so too. The guy doing it is Dane Cook, an alleged comedian. He's a douche and I hate him

  8. Knew there was a reason I liked you ---Gore---and dislike Hil for all the same reasons

    You should be thinking about nothing but the Red Soxs

    It's actually difficult to understand a world series without the Yankees, just is
