injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

It was a pretty quiet, uneventful week...

Yep.  Not much happened at all.

Okay, so maybe I'm still just the tiniest bit bitter.


Our "Dumb Ass Of The Week Award" goes to MSNBC President, Phil Griffin...

Keith Olbermann, whose show “Countdown” is the highest rated show on MSNBC, was “indefinitely” suspended by the network on Thursday when it was learned that on October 28th, Olbermann had given $2,400 each to two Democratic candidates.

The network’s position is that such contributions might create an impression of bias on the part of its news staff. 

Apparently, his bosses have never watched Keith’s show and were unaware that the highly-partisan, well-known liberal commentator was, in fact, a highly-partisan, well-known liberal commentator and that’s the reason his show is number one at the left-leaning network among the highly-partisan, liberal audience that watches him every single night. 

Nope.  We certainly can’t have them thinking he might be biased. 

Keith has a new book out.   Let’s see if we can’t help him knock Bush’s book out of the #1 spot.


And speaking of literary tomes…

In his recently released memoir “Decision Points,” Bush states that the “worst moment of his presidency” was when rap star and well-known poor loser Kanye West called him a racist.   Seriously, George?  

As  President of the United States during a time when we’d seen our country attacked and over 3,000 of our countrymen die on 9/11, when Hurricane Katrina had killed and displaced thousands of people in Louisiana and Mississippi, when young men and women under your orders were being blown apart fighting a war against Iraq based on a lie, when the middle class was being bankrupted by the continued transfer of the nation’s wealth to the upper 1 % of the population, being called a name on television by a rapper who didn’t even have a hit album at the time was your “worst moment?”  

My worst moment was when the Supreme Court handed you the election.


Now this is the way to decide an election…

In Chaves County, New Mexico, the race for county commissioner is tied between two
candidates, each with 1,004 votes.  According to a kind of cool state law, the tie must
be broken by a game of chance -- a flip of the coin, the drawing of straws or cutting cards.

If the tie still stands when the final military ballots have been counted, County Clerk Rhoda Coakley has suggested a game of 5-card stud – best hand wins.

Beats the crap out of letting the Supreme Court decide.  


Not-so-fun fact of the week:

Since 1984, California has built only one new college, but 21 new prisons.  Do you feel safer?


And finally, some of the funnier signs from last week’s “Restore Sanity” rally…
