HWC Football Week 13 Preview

It's getting to be crunch time in Hot Wing Conspiracy Football. The Chumps are in last place still, and desterately need to win one game, and at least tie the other in order to avoid finishing the season in last place. But in order for that to happen either Rose Hill Reddogs or RFTR must lose out, a task which is hard to accomplish. Let's see what kind of luck the teams will have this week.

Hot Wing Chump-ions vs. The Ball Sackers
Ball Sackers have been streaking worse than a drunken Will Farrell on a cold night. And with the loss of Donovan McNabb, I can't see the Philly Law Man bringing in much success. But then there are the Chumps. Who's luck actually rivals Wyatt's. These two were neck and neck last season all the way to the championship game. Wyatt, I'm afraid to say it, but it looks like with LT playing the Bills, Rivers might as well just direct snap it to LT every play. I think the Chumps are going to pull this one out, 60-58.

Robots Eat Babies vs Rose Hill Reddogs
Manning is facing the Titans again, and to some you might think, "Ugh, here's another lack luster performance." I think you're wrong. Manning has 12 TD passes in 6 home games this season, while only being sacked 4 times and only being picked twice. Be prepared for Addai to have a good game, but for manning to go at least 250, 2 TD's, and maybe one sack. Rose Hill on the other hand...not so good. The dogs have been strong lately, but Vince Young is going to get shut down this time, BADLY. REB is going to help the Dogs get down to last place. Robots Eat Babies win, 60-40.

Hector Vex O-Trons vs. I hate Hillary
Josh Scobee is a bastard. Getting 15 points to top my Chumps on a Monday night, and it looks like he's going to do the same thing to poor Pigg's team. IhH's saving grace, Marc Bulger against the Cardinals. The last time these two played, it was an air raid with 565 yards of passing offense with a mere 164 rushing yards. If it weren't for Warner's 3 picks, Arizona would have dominated. This time look for the same, but with much more scoring. I'm going to agree with Vegas and play for the tie. There are too many ifs for this game to be called one way or the other. Tie ball game, 60-60.

Gumbo vs RFTR
Now here's a game that rips me in two. On one hand, I want RFTR to lose, to give me one more option for getting out of the pit. On the other hand, I despise when a fantasy owner steals players in the draft, then never actually looks at their team. Both teams have been playing poorly lately with Gumbo not surprisingly losing 3 in a row, and RFTR only scored a total of 15 points last week vs Buck Turgidson. Gumbo will win 30-25.

Buck Turgidson vs webcats
All I can say is that teh LT train is coming through, and Buck, LOOK OUT! The best thing he can do is to just step off the tracks and let the train pass through. No need to look at other players since this one will likely be a one man show. webcats will win, 70-60.

Tax Dodgers vs San Jose Arrowheads
Pops is in for a thriller this week, as is San Jose. Both teams have key players in big time match-ups. The Dodgers have Drew Brees vs the 49ers, San Jose has Willie Parker against the Bucs. However, I think this game will be a matter of consistant player, rather than depending on one super star. Often times depending on one player leaves the rest of the team dead in the water on a bad week. I think this may be one of those weeks for the Tax Dodgers. San Jose will win 70-65.

Gridiron Wookies vs fmragtops' spewers
The Wookies Romo-fied me, and if it werent for that, I would have been one step closer to being out of the cellar. And it looks like the Romor train will strike again in NY against the Giants. All I can say to fm is..Run. Run very hard, for a LOOOONG time. Wookies Will Win (again) 75-30.

The Columbia CRUNCH vs bRight & Early
Star Power vs. Consistancy. Which one will win out? Tom Brady is licking his chops as the Pats face off against the lions at home but Steven Jackson and The Rams are facing the Cardinals in St. Louis. This game is slated to be the game of the week, and it may just end on a last ditch effort by both teams with Keyshawn Johnson for Crunch, and Brian Westbrook for bRight on Monday Night. I think this game will be an upset for bRight. CRUNCH to win it, 65-63.

And now, back after a Thanksgiving Break, the Yahoo! Vegas Lines
Victor - Spread - Loser (@ means home team)

The Ball Sackers - 7 - @Hot Wing Chumpions
@Robots Eat Babies - 18 - Rose Hill Reddogs
@bRight & Early - 1 - The Columbia CRUNCH

@I hate Hillary - 0 - Hector Vex O-Trons
@RFTR - 5 - Gumbo

Hmm, so much for Home Field Advantage this week!

The Side You Don't Hear

I keep hearing about how much of a tragedy it was that the man was shot and killed last week after leaving a NYC club the night before he was to get married. But what about the side of the story that the news keeps leaving out? The part of the story that was in the second paragraph of the WaPo article about it.
The spray of bullets hit the car 21 times, after the vehicle rammed into an undercover officer and then twice into an unmarked New York Police Department minivan, police said.

If the police had not shot the man, he was liable to face asaulting a police officer with a deadly weapon, and any other charges that may have stemmed from ramming the van. The BAC of his body may have shown something as well. Only time will tell though.

The fact is that this man drove his car into a police officer, and if that's not a reason to use force, I don't know what is.

Think Progress Complains About Inconvenience

The authors of Think Progress have a habit of either lying by omission, or they allow their liberal philosophy to place blinders on their common sense.

Just look at this article about how schools didn't want to accept the movie, "An Inconvenient Truth," due to the split between scientists, but have videos from oil companies where the first line is,"You’re absolutely not going to believe this, but almost everything I have that’s really cool comes from oil!"

TP then kicks in their blinders/lies by omission, and "forget" that plastic's main ingrediant is petroleum, also known as crude oil. The video is about a girl who wakes up one day to find that everything she owns that was made with oil no longer functions, or simply isn't there. She goes to school all messy and in burlap sacks. Her science teacher then informs her about the less noticealbe things that oil is a part of, such as nylon and plyester clothing, plastics, make-up, cell phones, cars, etc.

I posted this comment:
“You’re absolutely not going to believe this, but almost everything I have that’s really cool comes from oil!”
Could that be because anything with Plastic is made from oil. Playstations, Nintendo’s, X-Boxes, Computers, Cars, Airplanes, Appliances, Televisions…do I need to go on?
The reason Plastic is so widely used is because it’s light, inexpensive to make, and it doesn’t conduct electricity. Have you ever thought how miserable of an idea a steel television would be? Not to mention the fact that you can’t touch it if it’s plugged in since it would be a giant electircal conductor.
Let's see what reaction it gets.

HWC Football Week 12 Preview

It's getting to be crunch time in HWC football. There's only a few weeks remaining in the season, and I'm still at the bottom of the barrel.

Let's look at this week's games.

Hot Wing Chump-Ions vvs Gridiron Wookies:
Tony Romo has been on a pretty big tear lately, and the fact that he is in Tampa Bay this week is not something to make me sleep easy. I'm thinking about the only way I can pull this one out is if Romo pulls a McNabb. The Man pointed out that I need to win at least 2 of the last 3 games in the regular season to prevent being the laughing stock of the HWC league, but with my matchups being Wookies, Ball Sackers, then Arrowheads, I feel like the Fighting Illini. Wookies are going to take this one, 70-40.

The Columbia CRUNCH vs Robots Eat Babies:
Peyton Manning hosted The Titans with a projected amazing game, but pulled up lame. Philly's team is devestated after the loss of McNabb due to a torn ACL. The equalizer is supposed to be Larry Johnson, but the Chiefs are hosting the incredibly stingy Denver Broncos. Larry got 123 yards in the last meeting with Denver, but failed to get the money. I think Johnson will do the same as te previous meet, and unless Tom Brady can exploit the collapsing Bears, it may cost CRUNCH the win. REB to win, 60-55.

The Ball Sackers vs. bRight & Early:
Steven Jackson against the 49ers, and Matt Hasselback's return against the Packers. Only one problem in my book. That's great for bRight, not Wyatt. Looks like the Sackers forgot to cover their own nuts, as they are gonig to extend their backwards slide to 1-6 for their last 7 after this week. bRight will win this one 60-50.

fmragtop's spewers vs Hector Vex O-Trons:
I don't know which is more of a threat to this match, how over rated Jake Delhomme is, or how under rated Josh Scobee is. Jake scored an impressive -7 last week against the Steelers, while Scobee racked up 15 against the Giants. fm might be my ticket out of the hole, if I haven't gotten myself too far down. Hector takes another one, 55-40.

Gumbo vs I hate Hillary: (BLOWOUT ALERT!)
Gumbo had better lose. 3 Players on Gumbo who are still inactive, and with Marc Bulger facing the 49ers at home, this game's set. Gumbo, you're going to get out of your team exactly what you put in it. NOTHING. IhH to win this one handily, 60-20.

Buck Turgidson vs RFTR:
The hardest part about moving up is if you win, the other teams have to lose. Unfortunately, fm, Buck, Reddog, and RFTR have all been winning as well. Fortunately though in this matchup, one has to lose. I think Big Ben's wonder streak is going to stop when the Ravens pick his corpse clean this week, however Tiki will be there to pick up the slack in Nashville. This one's gonna be close, but I want RFTR to win this one, since I'm over Buck in points, and Vegas agrees. RFTR to win, 45-40.

Tax Dodgers vs webcats:
The Dodgers hopes at coming into the playoffs are looking slim, as LT is the head running back for the cats. Tomlinson vs. the Raiders. This game is going to be so sickening I don't even want to know the stats. webcats are going to lay the smack down, 70-50.

San Jose Arrowheads vs. Rose Hill Reddogs:
San Jose is locked into the playoffs already, and from the looks of it Rose Hill isn't going to be much of a challenge for their 10th win. The only spoilers would be a a bad game for Favre, and another game like last week for Chad Johnson. I don;t think lighting will strike twice though. San Jose wil win, 55-40.

Vegas is closed for the Holidays, but I will have the spreads up before Sunday in a seperate post, along with updated scores after Thursday's games.

Digital Camera Carnival

Glenn Reynolds is hosting a Digital Camera Carnival, and I'm going to jump in the frey. First, I'll start off with some pictured from the Adam Matthews Balloon Festival, in Luoisville, KY. I'm going to make the thumbnails small, but hopefully when you click on them, they will be full sized. All of theses pictures were taken with a Panasonic FZ-4.

This next set of pictures comes from my favorite thing to Photograph. RACING! Over the past few years I've taken thousands of pictures at races, some of which tuned out amazingly well, as you'll see. First, from the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals:

That's just a couple of the pictures from the set of 268 photos I took in two days. Good thing they're digital!!! Otherwise I'd be paying out the wazoo to print them.
Next stop, Nashville Super Speedway, and the Busch/Arca races which were held there over the summer. I'll do a set of 4.

But my camera isn't all about speed. I'll close out with some pictures from Princeton and NY City, and one last great picture I caught at the house.

And the last one:
Thanks for the link, Glenn!

Synchronized Orgasm Day?

Supposedly Princeton Scientists can detect the changes in positve and negative energies in the world, an these people believe that a worldwide Day of Orgasms will pump massive amounts of positive energy into the world, and turn bad people good.

Maybe that's what Insurgents, Saddam, Ahmadinejad, and Kim Jong Il need. To get laid.

H/T: Hot Air

Side Note: This may be the most disgusting irony ever. The advertisement that Hot Air has for the page about Global Orgasm is about a show called "Living Old." I think I just vomitted a little.

Sorry Folks

For the second time this season, I was too busy to make a preview for this week's matchups in HWC Football. I had classes that kept me overly worked this week, Friday I had to finish my classes, pack and head home. Then Saturday, I spent most of the day golfing with my dad, then watched the Predators beat the Columbus Blue Jackets. I knew it was going to be a good game when two fights broke out within the first 30 seconds of the 1st period! Then Sunday I figured what was the point.

However, The Man is slated to have the Recap of this week's matchups, so that should be up tomorrow or Wednesday.

A Letter To The President of the Univ. of So. Carolina

*Update* I was mistaken on where the game was played. I thought that the game was a home game for the Blue Raiders.

This is a word for word copy of a letter which I have sent to the President of The University of South Carolina.
One of the members of my church is a member of the Middle Tennessee State University Marching Band. As you should very well know, the South Carolina Gamecocks played and defeated the Blue Raiders, 52-7.

But, you may ask yourself, "What is so important about the fact that your friend is in the band?"

As the MTSU band marched into Floyd Stadium Williams-Brice Stadium, a South Carolina fan (possibly a student) maliciously threw a football at the band members. The ball hit my friend in the head, knocking her down to the ground. The attacker then walked down, picked up the ball, and left without saying a word. From what I have heard, this attacker was not apprehended, and has gotten away with assaulting a close friend of mine. Since the attack my friend has complained about a severe constant headache.

I am asking you to investigate who the attacker is, and when found, enforce disciplinary action upon the perpetrator. Irresponsible actions like those taken against the MTSU band members are unacceptable, and should be dealt with strictly, and immediately.

Picked up at:

Recipients of the letter:
Dr. Andrew A. Sorensen - President of The University of South Carolina
Dr. Sidney McPhee - President of Middle Tennessee State University
Dr. Glenn Reynolds - Law Professor at The University of Tennessee, and owner of the site, Instapundit.

Reasons I Won't See Borat

"Although Kazakhstan a glorious country, it have a problem, too: economic, social and Jew."

"Quick children, smash the Jew egg!"

"He insist we not fly, in case the Jews repeated their attack of 9/11."

*points to two cockroaches* "The Jews have shifted their shapes!"

*holding gun at gun shop* I feel like American movie star Dirty Harold...*pointing and aiming gun* Go ahead, make my day Jew...

Theses are some of the anti-semetic lines in the movie Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

Just one thing. The man who plays Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen is Jewish. And needless to say, the Jewish and Kazakh communities are not laughing.

HWC Football Week 10 Recap

Hey! The recap is once again here at GOP and College, and once again, it was another W for the Chumps. The league took a bit of a shake-up this week as many of the top teams fell to giant killers. Let's take a look shall we?

Gumbo - 35
Hot Wing Chump-ions - 69
Gumbo has had Trent Green as his starting QB ever since the beginning of the season. If I were more oblivious than I am, I might actually think that Gumbo updates his team. But the fact is that if he has checked his team even once this season, I would be amazed. Gumbo received 4 goose eggs this week, 3 of them were from people who actually were previously announced as not playing. Among the players on the bench for Gumbo are Marion Barber from Dallas, Matt Leinart and Dominic Rhodes. The long slide backwards keeps going for Gumbo. And at 34 points, this game was Week 10's Blowout of the Week!
MVP: Steve McNair - Steve stuck it to the Titans, as I expected racking up 373 yards, and 3 scores. But he still threw 2 picks and was sacked once for a total of21 points.
Goat: Gumbo - C'mon man. This is just pitiful.

Buck Turgidson - 71
fmragtop's spewers - 45
Poor fm. There was nothing he could do to prevent Buck from rolling over him...except play Carson Palmer over Gavid Garrard. The extra 26 points would have at least tied the game, and playing Joe Nedney over Mike Vanderjagt would have given fm a much needed win. Instead, Garrard threw 4 interceptions agianst THE TEXANS! Did he yell to the Texan corners, "Comin' to you!?"
MVP: Rex Grossman - 246 yards, 3 TD's but with 1 pick, and 2 sacks for 16 points.
Goat: David Garrard - 214 yards, 4 interceptions and 2 sacks, -6 points

webcats - 49
I hate Hillary - 45
Anytime you face off against LaDanian Tomlinson, you'd better have your A-Game. Unfortunately for IHH, that was not the case. Marc Bulger didn't throw any TD's this week, something that Rams fans haven't seen in ages. The thought of a Rams game without a pass to the endzone is as foriegn as a Muslim extremist welcoming a Jew into Mecca. I just wish LT would lay off the TD fever, and give some to my tight end, Antinio Gates.
MVP: LaDanian Tomlinson - 104 yards, 4 TD's, for 31 points. Was there any doubt?
Goat: Marc Bulger - 215 yards, 0 TD's, 1 pick, and 4 sacks for -6 points.

Tax Dodgers - 43
RFTR - 64
This was an upset to set all of them by. Since when did Big Ben actually have a good game? And when was the last tiem Randy moss only have 8 yards of offense? Moss has only 452 yards of passes this season, and 3 of the 4 Raider passing TDs. What's even worse is that's 200 yards over the next best reciever. I was wanting RFTR to lose this week since that would FINALLY vault my Chumps out of last place, but it was not to be.
MVP: Ben Roethlisberger - 264 yards, 3 TD's, 0 picks, and 2 sacks for 19 points
Goat: Randy Moss - 8 Yards. That's it. 0 points.

San Jose Arrowheads - 76
The Ball Sackers - 60
That sucked. I was rooting for Wyatt to upset the top seed, but it wasn't to be this time. The Sackers went 5-0 and have been 1-4 since then, averaging only 55 ppg instead of the 70 ppg he was having right out of the gun. But the Arrowheads in general just out starred the Sackers. With 4 players making up 59 of Arrowhead's 76 points, it's hard to overcome that.
MVP: Willie Parker - 213 yards, 2 TD's, 24 points
Goat: Jon Kitna - Slated to have a rocking day vs the wreched 49ers, but instead only 202 yards, 1 score, a pick, 3 sacks and a fumble for 1 point.

Rose Hill Reddogs - 55
The Columbia CRUNCH - 44
If Safety Man was still working at the plant, the heckling from The Dog would never end. Sadly, this is only the second time this season the Dogs have scored more than 50 points. The last game was in Week 6 vs. Gumbo where the dogs lost 64-78. If it weren't for Chad Johnson, Reddogs would have been the laughing stock of this week's games, but instead, he pulls out a nice W.
MVP: Chad Johnson - 260 yards and 2 scores, 27 points.
Goat: Larry Johnson - Yes, I'm putting him as the Goat. Only 75 yards and one score against THE DOLPHINS??!! 9 points.
Week 10 Rewards!

Best Come From Behind
Gridiron Wookies - 74
Robots Eat Babies - 63
This game came down to the wire, but with Wookies only trailing by 2, and Steve Smith coming into MNF vs. the Bucs, it looked pretty grim for the Robots. Sure enough, Smith came through. With a stunning 149 yards and a TD, Smith put the game away for the Wookies.
MVP: Steve Smith - Heck of a game gives the win to the Wookies
Goat: Peyton Manning - Only 236 yards and one score vs. Buffalo? Were you hung over?

Clash of the Weinies
Hector Vex O-Trons - 44
bRight & Early - 32
If this game is any type of preview for next week's match b/w myself and Vex, I'll take it. Both teams had a lousy performance with one or two star players. This game makes it easy for me to choose the MVP, but who out of all of the losers gets the Goat award?
MVP: Donald Driver - 191 yards and a score, 17 points
Goat: Alex Smith - 136 yards, 3 sacks and a fumble, -6 points. Eww.

Now that that's done, let's look at our updated standings and matchups for this week.

Words Worth Noting

Dear Moonbats,

What happened to the Republicans disenfranchising/cheating/stealing/buying/Diebolding, the elections?

Or do conspiracies only apply when things don't go your way.

Also, please note that you don't see Republicans or conservatives screaming and whining about how they were robbed by the Left's malfeasance.

See, that's how the grown-ups act.
Please take note.

So Long San Francisco JROTC

It's official. The vote to eliminate JROTC passed for Bay City Public Schools. News agencies have picked it up, and what's worse, Pelosi neither condemns nor approves of the action. As KRON states:
San Francisco Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, who is set to be the next Speaker of the House of Representatives, issued a statement questioning the move. Pelosi says her record of supporting the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered communities is solid. Still, she worries the loss of the JROTC could. "eliminate much-needed opportunities and structure for young at-risk students from low-income and minority communities."

CBS 5 in SF shows a short video in their summary, showing a student holding a sign that states "JROTC is my anti-drug."

I think that the government should start a hasty "cut and run" out of the SF Public School's budget for this stunt.

Glenn Beck's Exposed: The Extremist Agenda

If you're not watching CNN Headline News right now, you need to. Glenn Beck is giving an unapologetic look at the extremist Musilms in the Middle East. If you missed the 7 PM ET showing, it will be on again at 9PM ET and Midnight ET.


You will be shocked at what the Media has NOT shown you from the Middle East.

San Francisco's Chopping Block

First it was demanding that naval ships not dock in the Bay. Then they demanded that military recruiters be forbidden to step into public schools. Now 4 anti-military members of the 7 person Board of Education members in SF want to abolish the JROTC program.

The anti military fringe in San Francisco is honestly just that. The members of their Board of Supervisors agree that the country would be far better off if it were a defenseless country, banking on the "good wills" of tyrants around the world. On Hannity and Colmes in Feb Gerardo Sandoval said, "The United States should not have a military. All in all, we would be in much, much, much better shape."

To put into perspective how BAD that would be, when the United States was attacked at Pearl Harbor, the military was so off guard that if Japan had invaded, they would have made it to the Mississippi River before the United States Military would have been able to fight back. That was WITH a weakened, but still standing military.

The outrage from an ROTC abolishment does not only stem from a military perspective though. Of the 1,600 students currently enrolled in the program, over 70% are Asian Americans, and all of the students genuinely enjoy the program. One of the Anti-military board members even acknowledged the fact, saying "I know that children, the students, like the program. I know they enjoy it." But since when did that prevent a liberal from blindly spreading their ideology?

The ROTC program gives scholarships to students who otherwise would not be able to afford a college education. Even though my high school had a very low number of ROTC members (under 200), it wouldn't surprise me if at least half of them received scholarships from the program. In fact, the Commanding Cadet of the ROTC program the year I graduated was accepted into the United States Air Force Academy for FREE. The offer is a scholarship worth over $400,000.

I sent an e-mail to all 7 members of the Board of education asking them to keep the program, but I'm yet to receive a personal reply from any of them.

I urge you to do the same.

K-Fed: Extorsionist

Britney, 24, fears the raunchy footage will destroy her wholesome image unless she caves in to his demands for a £16million payoff and custody of their children Sean Preston, one, and Jayden James, eight weeks.

He needs to be booked for extorsion charges for that. Britney may have been dumb enough to make the tape, but K-Fed was just as dumb enough to sign a bulletproof Pre-nup. Federline began the marriage with an anual income of only 39,000 pounds, and a total worth of 15,000 pounds. The diamond engagement ring (THAT SHE BOUGHT FOR HERSELF) alone was worth over 100,000 pounds more than the worthless guy she married. He had nothing, and he deserves nothing. Here are the details of the pre-nup:

The agreement BANS Federline from getting his hands on any money Britney had before their marriage when a large part of her fortune was earned.
It also BANS him from getting any cash from deals pre-dating the marriage.
Even gifts he has received from her valued at more than £5,263 require a legal document signed by both of them stating who owns it if they split.
In the first draft of the pre-nup, Federline was due to receive £18,947 a year in the event of a split. This was later increased to £157,894 ‘spousal support' for every two years of marriage. As they wed just over two years ago, this could be all he gets.

On top of that, K-Fed is reported to have done drugs such as weed, Ex, and Cocaine. He was also described as having multiple parties in Las Vegas with hookers and 29 year old porn star Kendra Jade, while also blowing thousands gambling. All of this WHILE they were married, and Britney was pregnant.

If I were Britney, I'd Sse Federline for every penny he had if the tape came out, then bring one of the hookers to court for the custody battle.

Ray Lewis Is An Idiot

"I don't ever want to turn it into a black-white issue. But it would really puzzle me, seriously, if anybody would ever tell Brett Favre...if anybody would ever tell Peyton Manning not to walk into the Indianapolis facility. No. I can never understand that, and I never will because it's heartless. It's heartless to do a man like that without an explanation."

Well Ray, let me explain it to you. Here are the Titan's records for the last 2 years while McNair was behind center.
2005: 4-12
2004: 5-11

In 2005 Steve McNair completed 61.3% of his passes for 16 TD's and 11 picks with a rating of 82.4. In 2004 he completed only 60% of his passes for only 8 Touchdowns and 9 interceptions, for a rating of 73.1. Billy Volek (The back-up QB) played most of the Games for the Titans that season and got a QB rating of 87.1.

Brett Favre in 2005 Brett completed again, 61.3% of his passes, but for 20 TD's and 29 picks( Rating of 70.9). However in 2004 he completed 64.1% of his passes for 30 TD's and only 17 Interceptions. He finished the season with a rating of 92.4. The packers finished the 2004 season 10-6.

Manning tops them all with these stats:
2005: Manning completed 67.3% of his passes for 3,747 yards, 28 Touchdowns, and only 10 interceptions. The Colts also went on to finish the regular season 14-2.
2004: Manning completes 67.6% of his passes for 4,557 yard, and sets the NFL record at 49 Touchdown passes in a single season, while only throwing again, 10 interceptions. Manning finished the season with a 121.1 QB rating, and The Colts finish the season 12-4.

This season here are the rankings for QB's (Winner in the stat in bold):
Peyton Manning: 65.1% Pass Completion, 2,291 yards, 17 TD's, 3 Interceptions, QB Rating of 106.0
Brett Favre: 57.7% Pass Completion, 1,948 Yards, 11 TD's, 7 Interceptions, QB Rating of 78.8
Steve McNair: 59.6% Pass Completion, 1,319 yards, 7 TD's, 7 Interceptions, QB Rating of 73.8

Ray, THAT is why the Titans dropped McNair.


I held a$5 buy in, 8 man poker tourney here at the place and yours truely took 1st place! I took $35 of the $40 pot, and 2nd place got their buy in back. It lasted until 1:30 tonight after starting at 8, but it was worth it.

I got some lucky hands, and took a strait on the river to stay in when there were 4 people, then became chip leader when I K.O.'d the 3rd place player. After that I chipped away at 2nd place until the last hand when he went all in on a King-4 and I called it with a King-6. The dealer flopped a King, a 6 and something else, and the next card was another 6, and it sealed my win.

I'm feeling good right now.

SUV Sales Up, Hybrids Down

Glenn makes a good point about why the figures are as they are, even though gas prices are still over $2 per gallon in most places. He also notes that people who own an SUV often also own a hybrid. Here is his reasoning:
That's not really a surprise. People like SUVs because they're good at carrying kids and stuff over distances and in bad weather. People like hybrids because they're efficient at commuting and they're cool. Commuting in your hybrid, while using an SUV for family trips or to take kids to football practice, makes sense. (Of course, my own compromise was to buy a hybrid SUV, but . . . ). I notice more and more people have multiple cars, a trend that's likely to expand as Americans get richer. Perhaps the notion of a one-size-fits-all car will become passe as a result.
However, I wonder if the trend isn't so much as a compromise as it is "keeping up with the Jones's." You see a neighbor flaunting their new SUV with chrome rims, and leather seats, and you've got to get one. Then when you go to fill the tank your other neighbor is snickering at your $60 tank compared to their $30 tank, so you get another car to keep up.

My solution, the Toyota Camry. There's 15 cubic feet of trunk space, and it gets over 30 miles per gallon on the highway. I've had my '94 Camry for the past 6 years or so, and with over 212,000 miles, it's still kicking strong.

HWC Football Week 10 Preview

It's already the 10th week of the 14 week regular season of HWC Football, and I have all but given up hope on my Chumps to make it to the playoffs this season, and unless I win out, and the rest of the teams from 8th to 15th lose out, I will not be making an appearance past Week 14. However, with a strong performance this week, I could pop up 2 spots and no longer hold last place.

But let's look at the games anyways.

Hot Wing Chump-ions vs Gumbo
Gumbo is the number 8 team right now, and that could help me, but I am yet to play Wyatt, and The CRUNCH! The Chumps are projected to have a great week, and I can see why. McNair comes back to Nashville to try and destroy the Titans, which it's sad to say, but that's not very hard to do. Also, Jeff Wilkins will be a major points grabber as the Rams face the Seahawks in Seattle. The major turning point for Gumbo though is Denver vs. the struggling Raiders. The Raiders have a great defense, but with an offense that averages only 200 yards per game, and a ton of sacks, Denver is likelt to kill this one. Denver only allowed 3 points, and got 4 sacks, one pick, and a fuble in hteir last meeting, for 15 points. This game may be closer than Vegas Predicts it. I think The Chumps will actually start a "winning streak" but not by much. Chumps win, 50-45.

Gridiron Wookies vs Robots Eat Babies
I was thuroughly disappointed in REB's performance last week after the record setting match against Gumbo. REB has a benefit though. Manning is facing the very weak Bills, and if Manning passes for multiple TD's Wayne is likely to catch at least one of them, benefiting REB even more. The Man has a powerful team, and I think they will flex their muscles on Sunday. REB to win this one, 70-55.

bRight & Early vs Hector Vex O-Trons
Brian Westbrook vs. the worst defense in the NFL. bRight's mouth has to be watering at the masacre he is about to lay down on Vex. And sadly, there's nothing that Vex can do about it. This game might be as bad as the Tennessee-Nebraska game in 97. bRight is going to tak ethis one to the house, 65-45.

Buck Turgidson vs fmragtop's spewers
fm claims that her is giving up, and Busk says he's got a new name, a new attitude, and the same results. Well, one of these two pessimists is going to be wrong, the bad part is trying to determine which one. Both teams have players who are under rated, but I think that fm has the only team with players that are over rated. I get the feeling that Garrard isn't as good as he let on against the Titans. I think that Houston will be looking to take them out, and Buck will take advantage of it. This will be a match to watch folks. Buck to win it 55-52.

I hate Hillary vs webcats
Tomlinson against Cincy at home. That's all you need to know. Nothing else matters because LT is going to the house big time again this week. In the past 4 weeks he is averaging 123 yards and 2 scores per game, and the story is about the same in general for the season as a whole. 100+ y/g, and 1.5 scores per game. THis game will be pretty ugly, but won't be a blow out. webcats will win it, 60-50.

RFTR vs Tax Dodgers
Pops pulled an upset last week and toppled the CRUNCH, and he's my favorite to win it all this season. He's a half game and 22 points behind San Jose after I tied him in Week 4, but if things keep going well, This may be the pair to watch in the finals. I think Vegas is crazy here because they have Big Ben actually scoring in the positive region, something he has been rare to do all season. I think the Dodgers are going to increase that streak to 6 games. Dodgers beat RFTR 55-45.

San Jose Arrowheads vs The Ball Sackers
This is almost as great as when Michigan is going to play Ohio State. Wyatt would be #1, but a few key losses has dropped him like a bad habit down to the #4 spot. I'm anxious to see just how high the score can go for these two teams. The highest combined score happened last season in Week 3 when I edged over Bentley 93-83 for a combined score of 176 points. Beware records, this could be HUGE. I'm taking Wyatt to upset 80-75.

The Columbia CRUNCH vs Rose Hill Reddogs (BLOWOUT WARNING!)
Larry Johnson in Miami = Points galore. Reddogs have had scores of 64, 27, 54, and 28 for their last 4 games, and the rest of the season was no better. The dogs are bound to finish last, if my Chumps can get one more win. The CRUNCH is going to do just that, and smash Rose Hill like an empty beer can. Crunch to win 70-30.

And now, let's take a look at the Yahoo! Vegas Lines! I'm changing the format a bit to reflect more accurate lines. Victor - Spread - Loser, @ means home team

Why Stay?

Chris Matthews interviewed Howard Dean, and was actually asking Dean to hastefully cut and run. He wasn't even trying to hide it. And thinking about that reminded me of other difficult wars we've fought in the past, and how the choices in those wars affected us today.

There was one war which we were involved in that took the lives of some 25,000 Americans, and lasted nearly 8 years. The United States could have just given up after 4, and been done with it. America ciuld have bowed down to the enemy and gone on with their own lives. Battle after battle in the war weakened the morale of the soldiers, but they kept on pushing, because they knew the end justified the means.

There was another war, that lasted 4 bloody years, and took the lives of over 200,000 United States Citizens. From teenagers, to retirees, this war was far and away one of the worst things that America has ever had to face. And at the time, the newly elected President had to decide what was best for the country. To keep fighting through the death and the toil, or to run back home, and throw in the towel.

The first war gave us the greatest thing we have, The United States of America. Up until the battle of Saratoga in 1777, the United states could never seem to win a key battle. Then It happened. The British were defeated, at Saratoga, and morale for the Americans grew. More and more men joined the fight to become a soveriegn nation, and because of determination, they succeeded.

The next war kept this country together. Republican Abraham Lincoln came into office with a divided nation, and less than a month after he took the oath, Ft. Sumter was fired upon. The war was seen by many as going to be quick, and painless. People even would sit on their lawns and watch the battles from afar for entertainment. But as the toll grew, and the weeks turned into months, then the months turned into years. What would have happened if Lincoln and the rest of the United States had just given up and left?

Why stay? Because the end justifies the means.

Leftists ≠ Free Speech Pt. 7

This time, our Free Speech Advocates come from Ball State University, and fortunately the perps are under police custody, otherwise, with a University President who hates the victim, David Horowitz, the students would go unpunished and probably praised.

Horowitz was about to begin to speak at the school when a masked and hooded man came up and tried to hit him with a pie. Instead he hit his security detail. If I were a judge and I saw that the little punk filed an "excessive use of force" claim on the security, I'd drop it right then and there. He would have deserved it.

Beware America...

Hide your children, and get used to this statement, "Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi." As of 10 PM Central time, The House is looking like it will go to the Dems, but The Senate may just hold steady. The Dems are making upground, but I don't think that they will take over both houses.

Yup, the leach that is Kevin Federline is being kicked to the curb.

HWC Football Week 9 Recap

The recap is finally back here at GOP and College, and what a week to be home! It's going so crazy here, you would think that The Republicans grew an even larger margin in hte house and the Senate today. But that's not the case (yet!), and I'll explain more in just a bit. But first, if you're not familiar with the scoring, I'm going to Shoot you over to The Man really quick, for a brief catch-up, Bro?

And thank you for that introduction on how we do our points, so let's see the standings, and the scores!

Hot Wing Chumpions - 47
Mr Wolf Cleaning Svc Buck Turgidson - 44
THE CHUMPS WON! THE CHUMPS WON! GO CRAZY FOLKS! GO CRAZY! The chumps pulled off a last second 3 points in the 4th quarter to take the win over Wolf's Cleaners. I was watching MNF with a passion last night, praying that ANYTHING good would come out of Kackett, and Mack Strong. Then, early in the thirds quarter it happened! Hackett caught a pass for 23 yards, putting him up to 40 yards for the night. He finished with 58, and Strong finished with a lack-luster 20 yeards rushing on 6 carries. I can hear the release papers being signed for Strong already. And I see that Lawhawk has decided to change his team's name, along with this slogan, "New Name and New Attitude. Same damn results."
MVP: Joey Galloway - 97 yards and 2 scores. About time he was back to his scoring self!, 16 pts
Goat(s): GOP and College - Bad coaching prevented this one from being a blow-out, as 19 extra points were on the bench.
Mack Strong - Was picked up after game 2 thinking he'd be the endzone back, but has had all of 37 yards total in the last 3 weeks.

Robots Eat Babies - 56
Hector Vex O-Trons - 59
I was really rooting for The Man to win this one big, but I may have given the kiss of death with my prediction. There was nothing he could do, his players just didn't come out to play. The Manning Wayne train ran out of steam this week and it cost REB a chance to move up to 4th in the rankings.
MVP: Devory Henderson - Attracted Drew Brees eyes for 111 yards and 2 scores, 17 points.
Goat: Justin Fargus - Another week of non-performance. -2 yards, 0 points. (Why does REB have a Raider wide out? Walter gets sacked more than he can throw the ball!)

webcats - 70
fmragtop's spewers - 55
I was right about the Charger's running in Cleveland. There was really nothing the fm could have done to prevent that. Webcats may have something going after picking up Damon Haurd when Trent Green went down. Marvin Harrison was Manning's favorite target this weekend, but he's still not quiite high enough to get MVP this week.
MVP: LaDainian Tomlinson - 172 yards and 3 scores on the ground, with another 20 yards in the air, 29 points
Goat: Tampa Bay's defense - 31 points allowed, and nothing else. -1 point.

RFTR - 51
I hate Hillary - 48
Another game that came down to the wire. RFTR was down by 16 points going into Monday, but with Seattle playing the worst team in the NFL, the Oakland Raiders, they mardech all over them, and RFTR completed the comeback.
MVP: Seattle's D - 0 points allowed, and 9 sacks. There were no picks because Walters couldn't get the ball out of his hands! 19 points.
Goat: Bernard Barrian - Predicted to get 120 yards against the Dolphins, but Daaa Bearsss fell apart like a house of cards. 10 yards and 0 points.

San Jose Arrowheads - 85
Gridiron Wookies - 55
San Jose is back to their old self again, and he once again is alone on top of the standings by 1/2 a game and 22 points. Just a solid performance all around by Arrwoheads. Wookies played good, they just picked the wrong week to face San Jose.
MVP: Willie Parker - 70 yards and a score on the ground, 67 yards and a score in the air, 19 points. (In going to visit the College-ette, I found out one of her firends went to H.S. with Willie.)
Goat: Darrell Jackson - The star wide out for the Hawks only managed 36 yards for 1 point.

Rose Hill Reddogs - 28
The Ball Sackers - 58
Wyatt had all 8 cylinders banging against the dog's 4. The dogs had one player in double digits, and 7 with one or less points. How did Rose Hill get those 2 wins agian?
MVP: Kevin Jones - 110 yards and 2 scores on the ground, plus 30 more in the air, 18 points.
Goat: Rose Hill Reddogs - C'mon man! 5 points from 7 guys?! That's pitiful!

Tax Dodgers - 78
The Columbia CRUNCH! - 64
Way to go Pops! Sitting number 2 in the standings, and facing a bottom heavy schedule for the next 2 games. Wow, talk about having the stars come out when you need them.
MVP(s): Drew Brees - 314 yards and 3 scores, 26 points.
Miami's Defense - Stuffing the bears for only 13 points, 3 sacks, 3 picks, 3 fumbles, and a score, 25 points.
Goat: Plaxico Burress - Predicted at 60 yards and a score, but he got nothing, due to his back hurting.

And now for the Awards:

Gumbo - 63
bRight & Early - 28
At 35 points, this game takes it. How this score wasn't the other way around, I'll never know. Gumbo had 6 players with 0 points, but the other 4 averaged about 16 points each to give him a monster win.
MVP: Javon Walker - 134 yards, and 2 TD's receiving, then another 72 yards and a score rushing, 27 points
Goat: Alex Smith - 61 yards passing, a pick, and 3 sacks, -6 points

Best Comeback!
RFTR - 51
I hate Hillary - 48
This game REALLY came down to the wire. RFTR was down by 16 points going into Monday, but with Seattle playing the worst team in the NFL, the Oakland Raiders, they marched all over them, and RFTR completed the comeback.
MVP: Seattle's D - 0 points allowed, and 9 sacks. There were no picks because Walters couldn't get the ball out of his hands! 19 points.
Goat: Bernard Barrian - Predicted to get 120 yards against the Dolphins, but Daaa Bearsss fell apart like a house of cards. 10 yards and 0 points.

And now for a look at next week's games!

The Chump-ions finally won a ball game! At 13:12 in the 3rd quarter Wallace completed a 23 yard pass to D.J. Hackett, and gave teh Chumps the one point they needed to win.

About dang time!

Mack Strong, you are here by officially going to be DROPPED.

What Soldiers Are Saying

I get daily E-mails from Cent-Com in my mail box, and often times it is a recurring theme of "What Extremists Are Saying." It gives a blunt look at exactly what the media avoids when talking about Islamic Extremists:
The fact that they want to kill as many Americans as possible.

Well, Confederate Yankee, and Chester of The Adventures of Chester were given the oppertunity by Central Command to each interview two United States Military Police who are stationed in Iraq. Those interviewed were Staff Sargant Jason Oliver and Specialist Kimberly McGuiness.

Confederate Yankee's interview is here,
And Chester's Podcast of the interview is here.

Topics covered were:
Summarizing their duties.
The infamous 600,000 dead in Iraq study.
Is Iraq really the hell hole the media plays it out as?
Is progress being made?
Is the violence deteriorating?
What previous experience do the Iraqi Police have?
What could the Iraqi Police do to perform better?

And most importantly:
Will the Democrat solution of Cut and Run work? (Hint, signs point to NO!)

"We Will Turn This Economy Around!"

Nanci Pelosi has claimed that if Democrats win the majorities, they will turn this economy around. Let's see what they plan on turning around:

* Real Wages Grew 2.4 Percent Over The Past 12 Months. This means an extra $755 for the average full-time production worker or about $1,327 for the typical family of four with two wage earners.
* Real After-Tax Income Per Person Has Risen By 9.8 Percent – $2,660 – Since President Bush Took Office.
* Our Economy Has Grown A Solid 2.9 Percent Over The Past Four Quarters – Faster Than Any Other Major Industrialized Country.
* Productivity Has Grown At An Annual Rate Of 3 Percent Since The First Quarter Of 2001, Up From A 2.4 Percent Annual Rate During The Preceding Five Years.
* Gas Prices Have Fallen Almost 82 Cents A Gallon Since Early August.
* Employment Has Increased In All But One State Over The Past 12 Months Ending In September.

Hot Wing Conspiracy Week 9 Preview

It's Sunday morning and the smell of pig skin and freshly chewed up grass is in the air. So without further delay, let's look at the games set to start today.

Hot Wing Chump-ions vs. Mr Wolf Cleaning Svc
If there's ever a chance for my chumps to core their first win of the season, it's this week. Wolf has been averaging about 25 points per game, compared to my Chumps average of 35. If Houston can stop Eli Manning this afternoon, then I think the Chumps have a very good chance to dominate this game. I'm feeling optimistic this week, and I'm going to predict the Chumps to finally snap their losing streak. Chump-ions win this game 45-35.

Hector Vex O-Trons vs. Robots Eat Babies (BLOWOUT ALERT!)
The Man almost broke the century mark last week in the 98-20 routing of Gumbo last week. I would have to say that 78 will stand as the largest M.O.V. in HWC football history for a long time. The man set the record 14 points over the previous record back in week 9 of last season. The Man is averaging an astonishing 78 points per game for the last 3 games, and as the season goes on, I believe that he will make his march to the top of the standings. Vex on the other hand is averaging only about 35 ppg for the last 3 weeks. I don't think Vex is going to know what hit him. Robots are going to destroy Vex 75-30.

Gumbo vs. Bright & Early
Don't you love people that "forget" they have fantasy teams to keep track of? HWC should seriously think about having a pot for the champion, then maybe people will pay attention to their team. Gumbo has started Trent "On my ass" Green every week throughout the season. Granted his back-up is Matt Lienart, who is on a bye week, but still, at least LOOK at your team. bRight on the other hand is 6-2 with a 3 game win streak, that he's hoping to extend to 4. I agree, and I think that bRight will come out on top this week, 65-30.

fmragtop's spewers vs. webcats
This season has been a season of the underdogs for the most part. The Wookies are in 7th after winning the cup in HWC baseball, fm is 3-5 after placing 2nd, and the previous HWC champ, myself am in dead last. What the heck happened?! Poor fm is screwed on his matchups. He's got Carson Palmer against the freight train of the Raven's defense, or David Carr against the Giants. This is going to hurt like hell for fm, and it's gonna show in the score, especially with Tomlinson facing the always weak Cleveland Browns. webcats will take this game, 55-45.

I Hate Hillary vs. RFTR
Big Ben vs one of the strongest defenses in the NFL, the Denver Broncos. Roethlesburger has averaged a pick and a half, and 3 sacks per game for the past 4 weeks, and I don't think that it's going to be any different this week. I'm rooting for a blowout, because if my chumps can pull off a win, and RFTR loses big, I will no longer be in the last spot! I'm betting that IHH will break his proverbial foot off in RFTR's rear end this week. IHH to win, 60-30.

San Jose Arrowheads vs. Gridiron Wookies
It's the former baseball champ vs the HWC's version of Southern Cal. Fortunately though, Southern Cal, and San Jose both had their luck finally run out. And I've noticed something, however Vex has done on the Sunday before a So Cal game, Cal repeats. San Jose had a streak of nail biters, barely winning, then lost to a team that at the time really sucked. San Jose to Gumbo, and Southern Cal lost to Oregon State. This past week, San Jose destroyed Vex 79-18, and So cal demolished Stanford 42-0. This week San Jose plays the 5-3 Wookies, and So Cal plays the 7-2 Oregon. I'm feeling vengeful this week, so I'm going to call that San Jose predicts the outcome again of So Cal. Wookies will win this game, 65-50.

Rose Hill Reddogs vs. The Ball Sackers
Wyatt is in the middle of the wrong type of streak right now, with 3 losses in a row. He went from being the dominant team to 6th place in just 3 weeks. Ouch. One good thing is that at least Wyatt still has the highest points...What's that? Oh, I'm sorry, The Man has taken over the top offensive spot at 503 points, over Wyatt's 500. Come on now Wyatt! You had to settle for second last year, and dangit, you're not going to do it this year! Wyatt to win this one, 60-45.

Tax Dodgers vs The Columbia CRUNCH (GAME OF THE WEEK!)
I love a good fight, and this game has it all over it. It's the 6-1-1 Tax dodgers vs. the 7-1 crunch. These two are #1 and #3, but someone has to take the fall. And I'm thinking that my pops has to be licking his chops looking at his matchups. Drew Brees' #3 ranked passing vs the #22 ranked defense, The Bucs. On top of that Tory Holt and the Rams in KC. Mmmm, points galore. However, the great equalizer is the Rams lack of a defense, and they are facing teh unstoppable, Larry Johnson, who racked up 34 points last week in Seattle. This game will be close, but I'm rooting for my old man to win this one. Tax Dodgers to take it to the house, 65-60.

And now, time for the Yahoo! Vegas Lines! (Home - spread - Visitor, Victor in bold)

A Final Thought Before "Goodnight"

From NY Times:
Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to “leverage the Internet” to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein.
But in recent weeks, the site has posted some documents that weapons experts say are a danger themselves: detailed accounts of Iraq’s secret nuclear research before the 1991 Persian Gulf war. The documents, the experts say, constitute a basic guide to building an atom bomb.
Last night, the government shut down the Web site after The New York Times asked about complaints from weapons experts and arms-control officials. A spokesman for the director of national intelligence said access to the site had been suspended “pending a review to ensure its content is appropriate for public viewing.”
Officials of the International Atomic Energy Agency, fearing that the information could help states like Iran develop nuclear arms, had privately protested last week to the American ambassador to the agency, according to European diplomats who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the issue’s sensitivity. One diplomat said the agency’s technical experts “were shocked” at the public disclosures.
AllahPundit hit the nail on the head with these two questions:

Exactly how far along was Saddam’s nuclear research that Iran might possibly benefit from it?

Why is the IAEA worried about Iran using bombmaking information in their “peaceful nuclear energy program”?

Kerry Apologizes...Kind Of

"As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop.
I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended.

It is clear the Republican Party would rather talk about anything but their failed security policy. I don’t want my verbal slip to be a diversion from the real issues. I will continue to fight for a change of course to provide real security for our country, and a winning strategy for our troops." - John Kerry 11/1/06
He apologized for offending our troops, finally. Unlike the lousy "I'm sorry for my botched joke," which leftists think is perfectly acceptable. However as Hot Air contributor Bryan points out,
This looks like another do-over of the apologies that already failed. This statement is neither contrite nor even accurate. It’s yet another attempt to blame the entire problem on his remarks being “misinterpreted,” which means he’s still blaming everyone but himself. Lop off graphs 1 and 3 and lose “misinterpreted” and you have an apology. But as the statement stands, it’s not good enough. Especially given JfK’s unique history.

...Kerry’s clear and obvious smear wasn’t directed at Beltway pundits. It was directed at people who serve now and have served in Iraq, people that many elitists including Kerry sneer at as uneducated cretins, because these elitists either served in the non-volunteer era or didn’t serve at all and don’t have any close connections to anyone who has served in the volunteer force.

...As you know I worked around liberals for years. I know what they think of the military when (they think) no one else is around to hear them. Kerry’s remark expressed that disdain I heard day and in day out for years from so many people. That’s why I know it wasn’t a gaffe or slip of the tongue. It’s what he really thinks. Kerry’s apology blames the victims and then turns into an attack on their CinC. That’s not an apology. Sorry, no sale. And I think those who didn’t serve and haven’t felt the left’s hate for the military directly probably have a harder time understanding just how outrageous this whole thing is.
We'll see.


I love the U.S. Armed Forces. Having my best friend attending the UT Knoxville as part of the Air Force ROTC, plus many back in high school who were in Army ROTC, and the numerous friends who joined the service in various branches, has exposed me to the dry, VERY funny humor that the troops often use. After John Kerry said, "You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq,” the members of our armed forces were quick to react with this gem.

Glenn Reynolds quotes Howard Kurtz,

Will John Kerry do for the 2006 campaign what he did for the 2004 edition?

Why couldn't the Massachusetts senator have climbed out of the hole he fell into by just apologizing for saying something stupid, rather than getting out a shovel and digging?

Glenn then states, "Because he's John Kerry, the gift that keeps on giving!"

And to think, he was almost president of the Unites States.


Reason #2 why Kerry lost in 2004 can be understood in this cartoon.

Reason #1 Costantly failing on policies over and over.

The Left Strikes Again

Spray painting a giant penis on the American Flag. (explitives are blurred out) Real genius there people. It takes a real Einstien to do something a 5 year old would be amused at.

A 20' by 40' flag had the words F@#% BUSH and a phallus spray painted on one of the white stripes. The grafitti was visible for at least 2 exits from the north side of the building. The flag and display around it served as a memorial to veterans and has been there since 1998. The flag was so large that it had to be specially ordered, and took over 3 hours to put up. But that's not all. The American Legion was vandalized as well. Vandals spray painted penises and vile language on a fence outside the building. What a bunch of true ass clowns.

I have one thing to say to the immature filth that did this. There's $2000 on your head betting your ass is going to jail. Not to mention the cost to repair or replace the flag, and fix what you did at the A.L. Get used to this view. You're gonna see it for a long time.
I've got my money saying that it was either some little brat high schoolers or college freshmen who haven't gotten past the maturity of a 6 year old.
