President Bush liberated 50 million people from the tyrants they were suffering under. He made it possible for them to determine their own future.
It's amazing that certain folks are so filled with rage and hatred that they feel the need to spin and minimize His accomplishments.

Ironically enough, the song that I'm currently hooked on right now is Radiohead's "There, There" from the 2003 album Hail to the Thief speaks about paranoia!
In pitch dark I go walking in your landscape
Broken branches trip me as I speak
Just cos you feel it doesn't mean it's there

There's always a siren singing you to shipwreck (don't reach out, don't reach out [x2])
Stay away from these rocks we'd be a walking disaster (don't reach out, don't reach out [x2])
Just cos you feel it doesn't mean it's there (there's someone on your shoulder [x2])
Just coz you feel it doesn't mean it's there (there's someone on your shoulder [x2])

But if they do this guy loses his religious freedom somehow or another...
Not sure that I agree entirely with the opinions of Ingraham and Breitbart, but here's one big reason why I, as a member of the Church, voted YES on California Prop 8:
"This is much bigger than just a question of whether or not society should be more tolerant of the homosexual lifestyle. Over past years we have seen unrelenting pressure from advocates of that lifestyle to accept as normal what is not normal, and to characterize those who disagree as narrow-minded, bigoted and unreasonable. Such advocates are quick to demand freedom of speech and thought for themselves, but equally quick to criticize those with a different view and, if possible, to silence them by applying labels like “homophobic.” In at least one country where homosexual activists have won major concessions, we have even seen a church pastor threatened with prison for preaching from the pulpit that homosexual behavior is sinful. Given these trends, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints must take a stand on doctrine and principle. This is more than a social issue — ultimately it may be a test of our most basic religious freedoms to teach what we know our Father in Heaven wants us to teach." (Dallin H. Oaks)
Many more reasons on my blog:

Sorry, but you are.

Now, hew has kept Bush's SecDef
You lefty loons still use childish terms like "Dumbya" Grow up!
Obama pulled the wool over your eyes and got elected. But now that he has been elected, you don't see the right creating a bunch of "we're sorry world" websites - instead the right is getting behind Obama and wishing him well.
Unlike you "hate Bush" fanatics, we recognize the fact that we have lost, and we wish the winner well. It is our country and we need to stand behind our leaders to keep it strong.
You will not see a mantra like "Bush lied people died" from the right.
We love our country and support it's leaders.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Country music singer Hank Williams Jr. said he plans to run for the U.S. Senate as a Republican during the next primary election.CMT.com said Williams has already talked with Sen. Lamar Alexander and former Sen. Bill Frist about his candidacy.
Williams spent time on the campaign trail this year with Republican vice presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin.

WASHINGTON – An economic crisis, rising joblessness and a credit squeeze can make a president-elect refine his words. Today's word is "repeal." During his presidential campaign, Barack Obama promised to repeal President George W. Bush's tax cuts for the wealthy ahead of their scheduled expiration in 2011.
It was part of how Obama would pay for an overall net tax cut aimed at low- and middle-income taxpayers, and an effort to bring what he called "fairness" to the tax system.
No one is talking tax hikes now.
What the hell is up with this, libtards? We've got a tanking economy, massive unemployment, and declining tax revenues. Isn't this the perfect time to raise taxes on the rich?
Seems like Hussein Obsama is admitting that higher taxes are bad for the economy. Punishing the productive will have to wait, apparently.

Update: While the blogosphere has been buzzing with suggestions for who should replace Alan Colmes, who is relinquishing his role as one half of Fox News' 9PM duo, Colmes' co-host will be moving forward with the program solo, reports the New York Times' Brian Stelter:
While the network remained quiet about its plans for the political debate program, two people close to the network said that Sean Hannity, 46, Mr. Colmes's conservative counterpart for the last 12 years, would become the sole host of the hour. The people requested anonymity while speaking about private deliberations.
Original Post: Fox News host Alan Colmes will leave his role as co-host of "Hannity & Colmes" at the end of the year, the network announced Monday.
Colmes, who has co-hosted the program with Sean Hannity for 12 years, will remain with the network as a liberal commentator and will develop a weekend program, in addition to his radio show.

* Somewhere in America, Marty Schottenheimer must laughing his ass off at A.J. Smith. After tonight, Marty has been vindicated.
* Norv Turner, to be blunt, was in way over his head when he took the head coaching job, and again tonight it shows just how unqualified he really is to have been handed the keys. He's the fall-out guy to protect A.J.'s ego-driven ass for scrutiny from the fans. At any rate, Norv's time in SD will be over either this year or next year, if he has another season like he's had.
* A.J. Smith needs to to. It's just too much bullshit with this guy. First, he fires a 14-2 coach because they couldn't get along, then he sends Drew Brees off to New Orleans because of his shoulder injury three seasons ago and finally, he replaces the architect of San Diego's once-great 3-4 scheme with Ted Cottrell.
A.J. I like you. I really do, but its clear that your ego is bringing this team down. In the immortal words of douchebag extraordinaire Donald Trump, "You're fired!"
* Yo, Bill Cower? It's Jonathan. Listen, you think you can come out of retirement and come down to America's Finest City for a job interview, seeing as the chants for Norv's head are growing louder and louder? Please? I like what you did with Rothlesburger, Ward, and Bettis in Steelers Country, and I'd think you'd be perfect for leading this team to a Super Bowl victory. Call me back.
* Will Charger fans stop with this 'let's get rid of LT' nonsense? If we hadn't gotten LaDanian, the Chargers wouldn't be any where near as great as they are (or once was). That and we'd be stuck with Michael Vick, and the Falcons can tell you how that deal turned out for 'em. He's having an off-year, and he still giving his best to the team. Turn your hostilities toward A.J., he's the asshole who deserves most of your frustration and scorn.
* Antonio Cromarte is overrated, while Malcolm Floyd and Jamal Williams will find spots in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.
* Ron Rivera for Ted Cottrell looked like the right call. Too bad we couldn't pull the plug on him sooner.
Such people are easily convinced that a cartoonish, two dimensional fairy tale reflects reality - and are also people easily convinced that a particular person and/or movement has all the answers and, furthermore, that to oppose such person and/or movement is not just mistaken, but pernicious.

From The Lincoln Journal Star
A three-win Syracuse team may have delivered Nebraska a big push toward an appearance in a New Year’s Day bowl game.
With a lame-duck head coach, Syracuse upset Notre Dame 24-23 in South Bend on Saturday, providing a boost to the Huskers’ chances of being picked to play in the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville on Jan. 1.
“As I told you last week, I love the fact Nebraska’s back,” said Rick Catlett, president of the Gator Bowl Association, on Saturday night. “Bo Pelini has got them playing unbelievably good. Of the teams they’ve lost to, three of them are battling for a Big 12 championship. It’s the Big Red, you know, 85,000 every week. The tradition and history of Nebraska would be appealing.”
If the Huskers do end up securing a Gator Bowl bid, one of the leading candidates to be their opponent is Florida State. Catlett said Saturday the 8-3 Seminoles “would be our No. 1 option” out of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Florida State and Nebraska have met four times in bowl games — all between the 1987 and 1993 seasons and all won by the Seminoles.
Notre Dame and Nebraska have been prominent in discussions about teams that Gator Bowl representatives might choose as the opponent opposite a team from the ACC — the conference the bowl game is tied into.
It was figured coming into the weekend that Notre Dame would beat Syracuse and lose its final game, a road contest to Southern Cal, to finish the regular season at 7-5.
In its 63-year history, the Gator Bowl has never invited a five-loss team, but reps of the bowl game seemed open to the idea this year, especially if Notre Dame and its heavy pull were part of the equation.
But now the Irish are likely to finish 6-6, barring a major upset of USC. A Husker win against Colorado on Friday, meanwhile, would have NU at 8-4.
“We’re very much interested in Nebraska and Missouri,” Catlett said. “You can’t rule out Notre Dame if it were to figure out a way to beat Southern Cal. Conventional wisdom is they wouldn’t. And I don’t believe we would consider a 6-6 team.”
While Catlett mentioned Missouri as a possible candidate, the Huskers seem to stand a much better chance of going to the Gator Bowl than the Tigers.
Missouri has a date in the Big 12 championship game. Either the Tigers will win that game to become eligible for a BCS game or they’ll suffer a loss that could damage enthusiasm in the fan base about making a bowl trip all the way to Jacksonville.
Said Catlett: “The loser of a championship game is usually not very excited, not very pumped up about traveling.”
Nebraska hasn’t played a bowl game in Florida since the Orange Bowl on Jan. 2, 1998. Going into this weekend, many considered the Sun Bowl as the most likely destination for NU with the Gator and Alamo bowls as possibilities.
The Gator Bowl has the third pick of ACC teams — behind the BCS conference representative and whatever team the Peach Bowl takes. If FSU is not chosen for this bowl, other possibilities range from Clemson to Georgia Tech to Virginia Tech. But the Hokies would probably not be selected if Nebraska is on the other end given the teams’ previous meeting this year.
The game in Jacksonville has a New Year’s noon kickoff (central standard time) and is televised by CBS.

Syracuse beat Notre Dame 24-23 in an upset that A. really puts Charlie Weis on the hot seat and B. Almost certainly puts Nebraska in the Gator Bowl if they can beat Colorado Friday.
Another year of Weis and Notre Dame will want this guy back.

The vast conspiracy in this film concerns a fiend who uses an environmental firm as a cover to corner the market on the world's most precious resource -- water. A little harder to swallow than Goldfinger's plan to corner the market on gold perhaps. OK, whatever. But the film's writers and producers could not resist making the CIA a heavy. The CIA, we are told, has no objections to propping up corrupt and murderous thugs in Latin America so long as a few individuals get a cut of the action...
But the idea -- and it is a hoary one -- that the CIA is in the business of creating evil, right-wing dictatorships in Latin America is just laughable. Besides, the CIA in the film is clearly meant to stand for the U.S...
LINCOLN, Neb. – Legislature in a 45-3 vote, goes into effect Saturday, and makes Nebraska the 14th state with a 30-day age cap. It had been the only state with a safe-haven law without an age limit.signed into law Friday a bill adding a 30-day age limit to a safe-haven law that allowed 35 children — including teenagers as old as 17 — to be abandoned at state hospitals. The law, approved hours earlier by the
"I think this solves the immediate problem of adolescents being abandoned," said state Sen.. "These kids are old enough to know they're being dropped off, and that's not good."
The law was meant to prevent newborns from being dumped in trash bins or worse.
But it has been used to abandon 35 children at state hospitals since July — many of them preteens or teenagers as old as 17.
Hospital officials have described children crying hysterically as they pleaded with their parents not to leave them.

....as I mulled a stomach made queasy over what took place yesterday, it suddenly struck me that Lieberman's main breach was far more general than any of that and it comes down to this: Joe Lieberman seriously wanted John McCain to be the next president -- and he worked damn hard to make that happen.
....in wanting so desperately to have John McCain taking the oath of office on January 20th instead of Barack Obama, Lieberman wanted the following:
* Years or decades more of endless occupation of Iraq and thousands of more dead American troops
* Acceleration of al Qaeda's strength as the U.S. further ignores real threats in favor of Iraq
* Greater erosion of U.S. image and prestige in the world
* More charity for Big Oil while devoting zero resources to energy independence
* Less oversight of Wall Street and more of the recent price we have paid
* Millions more Americans without health insurance to add to 47 million who already have no coverage
* More children living below the poverty line
* Further debasement of our Constitution and national creed
* Even more elderly making a monthly choice between food, home heating and prescription drugs
* A deficit ballooning to such size that our children's children will be paying it off
* Reversal of Roe v. Wade and criminalizing every woman's reproductive choice
And add to that the significant fact that, as a campaign insider, Lieberman knew for certain that Sarah Palin was an ignorant third-stringer, embarrassingly and dangerously unqualified to be so close to the Oval Office -- and yet he pushed to make that happen.
Make no mistake: Joe Lieberman is, and will be remember amongst us Democrats, a filthy, opportunist-driven, cheese-eating rat bastard. Lieberman's actions weren't for the good of the country, as much as he wants to tell people. He wanted power and access in a McCain administration, preferably, the Vice-President slot. He saw a path to gaining it and for him, if that meant crossing party lines, speaking at the other side's convention, and stabbing Barack Obama in the back after he helped his ass out when going up against Ned Lamont in the Primary battle two years ago, not to mention, his party in general, then the ends would justify the means if John McCain won.
Nevertheless, Geiger outlined in his blog post, the reason why Lieberman still holds his chairmanship now.
Instead, I found that of 638, 110th-Congress votes through July 31, 2008, 36 of those came down to a tie or were decided by only one vote and, of those, Lieberman voted with the Democrats 31 times -- and on most of those 31, Democrats prevailed based on Lieberman's vote.
I didn't like seeing that, but the results were real and they made me conclude that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) was right to not push for Traitor Joe's ouster two years ago and that, like it or not, Democrats actually did need him on their side, at least some of the time.
Whatever opinion you hold of the Senator from Connecticut, he still, on some occasions, voted along party lines.
Now, if you take a look at the remaining tight Senate races in Minnesota and Georgia, with my opinion being that neither Al Franken nor Jim Martin will beat the incumbent Senators Norm Coleman and Saxby Chabliss to reach a filibuster-proof majority, Democrats are going to need a few moderate Republicans to break ranks on key issues and vote with them, thus highlighting Joe's importance to the Democrats to pass important legislation like healthcare and providing a tax cut to the middle class.
Like it or not, Democrats need Joe's vote in the Democratic caucus, and Harry Reid made the right call. But now, Lieberman's on a tight rope the rest of the way. He tries to pull a similar stunt to gain influence or increase his chances for power again, Obama's own words of keeping him in the caucus won't save him from being stripped of all power and being kicked out.
Kudos To DU
I admit it I was wrong. Oh I knew DU would turn against Obama and eventually show him the same kind of pure hatred they show every other Democratic politician. But I honestly thought it would happen you know...after he actually served for a week or two. How stupid can I be? Congrats DU. It's been an whole two weeks since you helped get Barack Obama elected and already you've decided you bought a bill of goods. This has got to be a record even for you kids.
The Terrorist That Scare Me Come From The Southeast Not The Mideast
Let's face it Conservatives are damn good at paying lip service to the so called war on terror. And up until 2006 the brain dead American electorate was buying the bullshit Conservatives had to sell. Nevermind that the worst terrorist attack on American soil happened on their watch they were to were the folks who kept us safe and free from terrorist. They had the songs, ribbons, gasbags and news networks to tell us so. Now to be fair when it comes to conservatives and service lip service is about the only kind most of them have any time or use for. So it's no big surprise they talk a mean game but in actually don't do jack shit. But the problem is not only are the most fervent of conservatives not keeping us from terrorism but they are posed to become the nations most serious terrorist threat.
Since Conservatives lost the election, to a Black man no less, the news agencies have been filled with stories of people in all parts of America buying weapons, committing hate crimes,engaging in racist acts. meanwhile the same people who were crying about their second amendment rights our the same people building up personal arsenals that would put any third world armies to shame. The churches are ex-communicating or denying Communion to their parishioner's on the basis of their personal politics. The terrorist who threaten America and are poised to bring it down are not Muslim extremist in Afghanistan, Iraq or Iran but Christian extremist in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, California, Maine and all places in between. Unfortunately for the President elect this is a much tougher foe to fight. To get tough on a foreign enemy is seen as defending America, to get tough on a domestic enemy will be seen as taking away their freedoms. Mr. Obama is a smart man and I am sure he knows what he has gotten into but he will face problems that no other President has had to face. I believe there will be a terrorist attack against America in the name of the Lord by somebody who is as White and American as I am in the next 4 to 8 years. The bogey-men from the Mideast I don't sweat. They can and will be defeated. The ultra right-wing "ditto-heads" here in America scare me to death.
Now that i have written that totally downer of an opinion...Some happy talk. Faced with a football team going nowhere fast and a Football coach that had already been fired just running out the clock I figured the good folks at Kansas State would be having trouble selling their tickets and I was more than Happy to snatch a couple of them up even at $80 a piece. Hey that was cheaper than the $100 I paid for Colorado tickets last year. And just like The Colorado game last year it was freaking cold. Now the biggest myth in the world I have found is that Colorado has cold winters. I lived in Colorado 4 years and can remember maybe 5 genuinely days. The thing is when it's 15 in Colorado it feels like 45 in The Midwest. And most days in the winter in Colorado it's in the 50's and 60's. So natch I thought last year when I bought the tickets to the CU game I thought it would be about 45 which would feel like 60. It was 18 degrees.
Now the game started at 2:30 but I am one of those people that likes to be at places early so we left at 9 in the morning. It's a little over 3 hours down to Manhattan and i figured by the time we parked and got to the stadium with Traffic it would be about 1:30 which would be perfect. We got to the stadium at 12:30. Now the forecast leading up to the Kansas State game in "The Little Apple" Manhattan Kansas called for sunny and 50 degrees. Good enough! so of course It was overcast and windy with the temperature at Kickoff at 38 degrees. It felt about the same as the year before in Boulder. Now let me say that I have been to colder games and I have damn sure been in colder elements than this. But I don't know If My Body hasn't acclimated or what but leading up to kick off I was Froze. So I knew the Contessa had to be frozen. But she hung in their like a trouper. The whole time I kept thinking I wonder what God Awful shit will I be dragged to as a punishment for the crime that I am sure I am committing in that woman's mind?
Before the game started The PA announcer lead the crowd in what apparently is the pre-game tradition at Kansas State. Humping the person in front of you to the bands rendition of the Wabash Cannonball after saying the pledge of Allegiance. This is the first game I have ever been to where I had to stand up and mouth the pledge like I was in third grade again. After this they played the little psych up video that all schools have now to pump up the crowds. Except most schools little video...makes sense. This one had Willie The Wildcat chasing a "stereotypical" hick farmer through a corn field on to the stadium where he then makes a tackle. The Kansas State fans in the crowd loved it. All I kept thinking was Let me get this straight This is Kansas State, a farm school in the middle of North Central Kansas and they are making fun of Nebraskans for being hick farmers? Whatever! Then Kansas State had one last surprise. After warm ups they took off their normal Grey pants and in a move to either fire them up or show support against prop 8 put on Purple pants giving them the all purple look. Now I have never known a color scheme to effect the outcome of a game so why teams continue to change their uniforms to fire themselves up for a game I'll never know. The only time I like it is when Notre Dame does it and that's only because those Green Jerseys are cool. And Notre Dame always loses in those jerseys.
Anyway Opening series Kansas State gets the ball does nothing everything is kosher life is grand and then on Nebraska's third play or so Joe Ganz throws a pick that gets returned for a touchdown. Now my imitate thought is this just fucking great it's freezing I am in the middle of Fucking Kansas and we are going to play like shit. Well Me of little faith. In one more proof positive statement that the Bill Callahan days were over Nebraska took the ball rammed it down Kansas State's throat twice and went up 14-7 with ease. Time to relax? Nope. Now the defense had to have it's weekly breakdown. on third and 13 Josh Freeman through his one and only good pass of the game. Anthony West had coverage but didn't make a play and it was 14-14. Shit! Fuck! Shit! all over again.
I really felt queasy after NU had to punt on it's next possession. But Kansas State fumbled the punt and Nebraska recovered. Actually the play was close and the referees being Big XII Referees didn't make a call until they discussed it for ten minutes then made the call. Having watched the game over ( I recorded it on DVD) it appeared to be the correct call though it was so close that If they had called him down that probably would have stuck as well. Anyway that seemed to take the fight out of Kansas State and Nebraska scored then scored again and it was 28-14 in the second quarter and the Kansas State fans, who up to that point had been calling their team every name in the book, got up and left. The people in front of us got up and left and offered us their seats and since they had cushions we took them. It was at this point the sun came out the wind died down and the day, IMHO, became actually decent. The Contessa was still freezing. Nebraska scored again before halftime and that really set the 15 remaining KSU fans off especially when Ron Prince (God I'll miss him) passed up the field goal at the end of the half to throw one in the end-zone to try and get another score. It was incomplete. Nebraska was up 35-14 at half. The Contessa looked at me like can we go and I said no fucking way. I was going to enjoy this. Besides stay until the end of the game there will be no traffic to beat.
Now Bill Snyder Family stadium seats 52,000 and change the attendance was 48,000 and Change to start. At this point the crowd was about 20,000. The 20,000 who were cheering on Nebraska. Tom Osborne once said it was a bad thing that many Nebraskans got some of their self worth from the football team. bad or not I have to tell you Kicking Kansas State's ass like it was 1988 and watching their fans leave in mass to what I am sure in their minds was the tune to Welcome Back, Kotter made me feel pretty damn good.
Now if this week like last week proved we are coming back, it was this part of the game that proved we aren't quite there yet. In the third Quarter Nebraska had a nice drive but stopped it themselves with penalties. When Kansas State put in their back up Quarterback ( super-star Josh was stinking the joint up) they finally moved the ball and were rewarded a touchdown on fourth down after the refs originally said Nebraska had held them out of the end zone. after Nebraska's offense had woke up an answered and Kansas State returned the following kickoff back for a Touchdown that was the only time I got really pissed. Here was a game that we were completely dominating and the defense was shutting KSU down and the score was only 42-28 early in the fourth quarter. But Nebraska closed the show by scoring twice more and they probably would have scored again if they had more time. With 20 seconds left and Nebraska running one more play I The Contessa and I started to make are way up the stairs out of the stadium as I was leaving I actually over heard a Kansas State fan crying about Nebraska running up the score.
"this is ridiculous who do you think you are Bill Callahan? just kneel down whah whah whah!" I guess having our third string in and running the same two running plays over and over wasn't enough for this loser. Then I thought about Tom Osborne's self worth observation. If the game didn't make me feel a whole lot better...that did.
After the game even though the drive back is fairly short we stayed in Manhattan for the night. It's a nice town actually except there are too many churches and they are all of the super colossal tax scam variety. All and All it was a great day.
So anyway The only real complaint about the game was Nebraska won 56-28 but should have won 56-14 with out the two TD's they gave KSU. After last year that is a very mild complaint. Now Nebraska is 7-4 and has Colorado coming to down the day after Thanksgiving. That should be a win. If they do win hat puts Nebraska at 8-4 and gives them 3 Bowl possibilities.
The Gator Bowl: This is the best of the three choices but it doesn't look good with Notre Dame beating Navy. Odds are the Gator Bowl folks will take Notre Dame if they get 7 wins which they should this week against Syracuse who is barely division 1 at this point. BUT if USC beats Notre Dame badly ( a distinct possibility) like 52-10 badly the Gator Bowl might have something to think about.
The Alamo Bowl: This bowl has been good to us but I think they are holding out for hope for Oklahoma State at this point. Plus Nebraska has been there 3 times this decade.
The Sun Bowl: This is the bowl my money is on. The El Paso folks have made lots of noise about wanting Nebraska and it appears that they are going to get their wish. Should Nebraska get upset next Friday the Sun Bowl is a lock. But even with the expected victory Friday El-Paso is the odds on favorite. Nebraska would be playing a team from the Pac-10. Probably California or Arizona but Maybe Oregon.
There are a lot of Nebraska fans grumbling about the possibility of heading toward El-Paso. I would suggest to them to think back to the bowl we went to last year and when they remember we didn't go to any think about how great that was.
Anyway I want to close with this. This was written last year by a Kansas state fan on their message board after Nebraska beat KSU 73-31in Lincoln. A win that surprised everybody because at that point it appeared Nebraska had cashed it in...
You know something, who cares? They hate us because we know what a huge fraud their fanbase is (I think they are the second best fans in America, everyone else is tied for first)... this was the last gasp of a lame duck coaching staff to keep their jobs with a big, emotional win on senior day over a hated rival... what goes around will not come around as we will never play slashahan again, unless KSU joins the AFL2... enjoy this win, fuskers, I hope it gave you a blast from the past, because whatever "good ol days" coach you hire will end up being destroyed next year in the Little Apple... or you could jsut keep douchbagahan so we can exact revenge... I hope you lose out, you suck, I wish that I could bomb two citites in the US, so there would be no more Lowrents or Lincoln... and if you want to somehow start claiming that you are taking the high road, well, then, go f'*** a goat, I am a KSU fan and could care less about your feelings or self-ritousesness of being a good fan on an internet message board, I have nothing but contempt for you and really, really hope you don't go to a bowl game and have to wallow on the same sewage of watching GayU win the MNC... I'm gonna be sick

Honestly I am not sure what is the bigger shock. Scal Hitting a clutch 3 ptr or Scal getting off the bench.
Take away all of the ignorant, uneducated voters who think Obama is going to pay for their mortgage and put gas in their care, McCain would've won in a landslide! Obama realied on the uneducated masses to get elected. And that's the future of our country! Heaven help us!

- LT's looking better: 18 carries for 54 yds & a TD isn't a whole lot to brag about, but remember, he is playing with a injured toe and he's not the explosive running back that set the NFL single-season record for most rushing TD's, but with time, he'll be back to full strength.
- Finally the defense came alive (at least thought the first three quarters) today.
- The Broncos beat the Falcons 24-20 today, now sitting atop a two-game lead in the AFC West, and San Diego needed a win to stay one game behind. Denver had to choke the rest of the way in order to clinch the title and the fourth seed in the playoffs.
- Philip Rivers, for lack of a better word, sucked in this game. Two pics and a safety coming in the 1st quarter.....come on, Philip, you're better than this.
- Receiving was abysmal - nuff said.
- No matter how this season ends, the 09 campaign will be a make-or-break year for both Norv Turner and Philip Rivers. San Diego doesn't make the playoffs next time round, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if on of them, or both, were run out of town on a rail. The person who should be worrying about his job right now is A.J. Smith. All his controversial moves - from firing Marty Schottenheimer, to replacing Drew Brees for Rivers - are coming full circle on him. If anyone should be worried about finding a new job, it's the Chargers GM. Plus, I respect both Rivers and Turner after what they did last season, and to an extent, I believe they take a lot of unnecessary blame from the fans.
The best the Bolts can do is play for next season and finish strong, preferably a 10-6 or 9-7 finish to end the regular season. Other than that, there's not much else the Chargers can do but hope that New England, Buffalo, Baltimore, and Indy slip up for the Wild-Card spots.
Late Edit From The Count:
That was a tough loss Jonathan. I really don't think Norval* is a head coach. He's had 3 shots now, even though only 2 legit shots since one was Oakland, but the guy just has not proven to me he can get it done.
* I have a program and Omaha World Herald from 1974 When Nebraska played and beat Oregon 61-7. Their Quarterback was listed as Norval Turner who has since shortened his name to Norv.
I am now convinced that the NFL should do away with giving division champions an automatic playoff spot and should just give the best 6 from each conference teams the spots. I say this because I don't know that the winner of the NFC North could win the Motor City Bowl. Seriously Ball State Vs Minnesota, Chicago or Green Bay? It probably be a hell of a game. I am only half joking. Minnesota Green bay and Chicago are all tied at 5-5 and the Detroit Lions at 0-10 may be the worst team in the History of the NFL. If it wasn't for the sorry assed Lions and each other who else would these losers beat? Today I listened to the Vikings game on Sirius until 2 and then Nebraska started their Basketball season against San Jose State so I shut off the Vikings and listened to that instead. Not that the results of Nebraska basketball and the Minnesota Vikings have been all that dissimilar through the years. But at least now Nebraska plays hard which I am not sure about the Vikings and today they won which I know I can't say about the Vikings.
Thankfully my Saturdays have been much brighter as of late. As long as that continues if the Vikings win that's icing and if they lose then that's cake.

But I was particularly struck by this passage, from a Sunday, November 9 post (all typos are original):
History, which I am pretty much illiterate on, as I am on most subects. My education went in one ear and out the other...I just didn't have the patience to sit and study, combined with my very timid nature in social settings; making it very difficult for me to learn, but I made it to gain a high school diploma. It is a miracle that I am sitting her typing this today.A rare moment of candor, this.
It's schadenfreude to read, of course. But we've earned it.

O’REILLY: So you can see the debate over gay marriage is now a full fledge national battle. As talking points said last night the election of Barack Obama has emboldened secular progressives who feel it is their time. Gay marriage just the beginning. Other cultural war issues will also be in display very shortly. These include limiting gun possession, legalizing narcotics, unrestricted abortion and the revocation of the Patriot Act.
Quantum Of Solace May Not Be Casino Royale But It Is James Bond.*Minor Spoilers*
And damn good Bond at that. Although at this point if 2 cows getting it on in a pasture and there was a character named James Bond who owned it maybe I would be out there enthusiastically defending it because dammit it had James Bond.
It's fun to play fact or fiction with the early opinions of the film and see if they pass the smell test.
1. It's not Casino Royale. FACT.
I can not put Quantum of Solace into the rarefied air of OHMSS or FRWL the way I did Casino Royale. Quantum Of Solace suffers from A. not being the best Bond film in 40 years. and B. Coming after the best Bond film in 40 years. So it's the 2 or 3rd best Bond film in 40 years. What a downer.
2. It doesn't feel like a Bond Film. FICTION.
This is Bond. it feels like Bond. There are nods to several Bond films scattered through out the picture. There are nods to The Spy Who Loved Me and Goldfinger and Finally the roof top scene that has been planned and even filmed, but always gets cut in seemingly every movie since Majesty's. Trust me this was the one thing I was very worried about going into the movie. That in their quest to freshen Bond that Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson were in fact losing him. I am happy to report this is a Bond film. It looks like a Bond film ( although that shaky camera and ultra fast editing gets disturbing in spots) and it feels like a Bond film.
The Pre-title sequence is almost 1963ish in it's brevity but succeeds in setting the tone of the film. The title sequence is outstanding. a genuine throw back to Maurice Bender Sadly it's ruined by a theme song from Alicia Keys and dude with Alicia Keys that challenges Madonna for worst Bond theme song ever. In fact I give it to them. The song is dreadful.
Olga Kurylenko is the Best Bond Woman since at least Michelle Yeoh and The best looking since Izabella Scorupco. Gemma Arterton is atractive as well but is largely superfluous. did I mention I really liked Olga Kurylenko?
Judith Dench gets a lot of air time this time around, (my Mom will be happy) mainly nagging Bond to death through out the picture. I think Dench is a great M and like her very much but actually wished Bond would have shot her at the end of the picture.
The villains here are rather un-memorable and the main plot, to steal the Bolivian water supply won't win any awards but the most lasting feature of the plot, Thank You George W. Bush, is that the Americans for the first time ever are not only not the good guys, they are supporting the bad guys to support there own self interest. Though James Bond is not an American franchise it's always been good at towing the American party line at least in film. The "poor, nearly helpless" Mujahideen of 1987's The Living Daylights were bold, brave and strong the way they overcame incredible odds to defeat those evil Russians, Never-mind that they were in fact the Beginnings of Al-Qaeda. In 1987 Al-Qaeda was A-ok with the USA so they were A-ok with Bond. those days are over. Again thank you George W. Bush.
I really Daniel Craig as Bond. I think he might have been better here than he was even in Casino Royale. That the film itself is not quite up to it's predecessor is in no way the fault of Craig. The film is not despite what you may have heard completely without humor neither did I find it as "sad" of "dark" as critics like to claim. I swear critics are fucking lazy which explains why all of their reviews so far have fallen into 2 categories. I think there are 2 people that actually go to review the films and everybody else is either bought off to say something negative or positive, or they just copy what the first two idiots said.
The Worst review comes from Derek Elley in variety whom I have to admit I have never fucking heard of: Elley shits...
Stripped of the humor, elegance and reinvented old-school stylishness of "Royale," "Quantum" has little left except its plot, which is rudimentary and slightly barmy, in the line of the Roger Moore pics of the '70s and '80s.
I'll get to the old let's blame Roger Moore bullshit line later. Seriously Elley what movie did you fucking watch? Did you get lost by mistake? No I bet since the tried and true blame Roger Moore line has been trotted out with every movie since BEFORE Moore ever played the part I am going to guess that you saw somebody else write this and being the fucking lazy twit you are just plagiarized it.
Diamonds Are Forever in 1971 was the first Bond movie to use slapstick comedy and this was of course Roger Moore's fault even though Sean Connery played Bond and Moore didn't get the part until the next movie. 1983's Never Say Never Again, with Sean Connery wasn't as good as the worst Moore picture. Guess whose fault that was? You guessed it. Even Roger Moore joked about the fact that he had taken such criticism over a movie he had nothing to do with. Die Another Day? Moore's fault. Once upon a time Any James Bond movie that had too much humor for the critics was the fault of Moore whether he had anything to do with it or not. Now if it isn't funny enough for the critics well that is Moore's fault as well. The man is 81 and hasn't made a Bond picture in 23 years but dammit he's to blame. To think there are people who rely on the opinion of these twits to form their own.
Well I have seen Quantum Of Solace and have formed my own opinion. It's damn good. Not a top 3 Bond film but certainly top 10 and maybe top 5.
Quantum Of Solace ****/*****
