McCain-Palin trivia for the night

I swear I won't single-handedly turn this blog into an "all Palin, all the time" format, but I can't really get it out of my head.  So deal with it. 

Anyway, I just realized that this is the first time since Reagan-Bush 1984 that both nominees on a major party ticket haven't been lawyers.  John McCain went to the U.S. Naval Academy while Sarah Palin got a journalism degree from the University of Idaho. 

No offense to Gabe, of course, but that's kind of refreshing. 

Update: I once again prove my Moron credentials.  This is the first time a national ticket has had two non-lawyers since...ummm...2004.

Presented without context

At press time, the nut was still firmly attached to the base of the man’s genitals.
Huh. Like most guys, I have two nuts firmly attached to the base of my genitals, but this guy is different, I guess.

Indian man buys out theatre to prove horror movie isn't too scary

I wish I had that kind of money to throw around.  Then again, that might not be that bad in India, I'm guessing because people are poorer, there are a lot of movie watchers, so tickets are probably cheaper, unlike here where they take half a week's pay for a ticket.  In any case, the film has been advertised as being too scary to watch alone. 

These goofy "so scary that" promotionals and ads are ridiculous, but my favorite of these promotionals is for The Screaming Skull (which was featured on MST3K, you can see the corny promotional after the Gumby short, or skip to 6:00, but the Gumby bit was funneh),

Approval poll

Whaddya think of the GOP House performance?  The Senate?  Bush?  Whaddya think of McCain?  Hawkins has a series of polls at RWN, I petitioned for "Abysmal" as a choice, but I doubt that's happening.

Hot

Photobucket


Hotter:

McCain, who has pulled even with Barack Obama due in part to his very effective attacks on Obama's "celebrity," spent the evening collecting checks from Hollywood stars or people who once might have fit that description. Among those attending: Dean Cain (Superman); James Caan (Godfather I and II, Bottle Rocket); Jon Voight (Midnight Cowboy, Deliverance); Robert Davi (License to Kill); Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk); Adam Carolla (The Man Show); Lacy Chabert (Party of Five).

McCain VP Survey

John Hawkins at RWN sometimes does surveys of opinions from various bloggers from the VRWC, and I'm usually on the mailing list now, so I've done a few.  This one is about McCain and the VP selection, my results were pretty much in line with the majority, so here be the questions, my choices, and why (if necessary),

Out of the following VP candidates rumored to be on McCain's short list, which one DO YOU THINK HE WILL TAKE?

McCain I think will pick Pawlenty, and that's probably only because he knows he can't get away with putting Lieberman on there.

Out of the following VP candidates rumored to be on McCain's short list, which one WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE HIM TAKE?

I think this is pretty obvious if you read our crapblog, most of us at doubleplusundead have been all about Palin.

Out of the following VP candidates rumored to be on McCain's short list, which one WOULD YOU LEAST LIKE TO SEE HIM TAKE?

Lieberman, not because I dislike the guy, because I do like him, but I like him as respectable and civil opposition and as a generally decent (but mostly wrong on policy) guy, but not as a VP.

Vaguely related(since we're talking Presidential candidates and their VPs, but fucking hilarious.

How the hell did I miss this?!

Chuck Palahniuk's Choke has been made into a movie and it opens on September 24, 2008.  Where have I been?

I would prefer that Invisible Monsters, Lullaby, or Diary: A Novel been made into movies first since...umm...those are the ones I've read.  This is a good start, though, I'm sure.

Random thought on the Biden pick

Could the idea with picking Biden be that they are in fact hoping Mr. Smarm inevitably puts his foot in his mouth?   Someone as gaffe-prone as Mr. Smarm will probably say something stupid and outrageous enough at some point to draw strong political fire from the right.  That might possibly draw it away from Obama, which could be useful.

If you've ever listened to Dick Morris, he always says that when he was a Clinton advisor and the GOP attacked Hillary, the Clintonistas were cool with it because the GOP wasn't making political attacks on Bill.  I wonder if in part a similar philosophy is at work here.

There's only one state that would dare give you the crazy rasberry ant

 http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x73/doubleplusundeadmeenu/Dark_Helmet.jpg\
Lone Star!

Yes, it seems that parts of Texas have been invaded by a type of crazy ant(yes, there really is a breed of ant called the crazy ant, they don't move in single file like most ants, more of a disorganized horde, hence the "crazy"). It is now informally named the Rasberry crazy ant, after an exterminator who discovered the pest early on.  For some reason, they actually try and go after wiring and electronics like food, and are wreaking havoc on wiring and electrical systems in parts of Texas.

A slow news day thought

That bump on the back of my neck is there because:

(a) it's just a bump, which is nothing to worry about.

(b) it's cancer.

(c) a bug laid it's eggs in me while I was sleeping.

My guess is (c).

(Blame Barack Obama.  I had planned to write on his VP pick, and how McCain could best react to that, but he's screwed that up for us, too.)

Before the infamy

My dad called me around lunchtime to note that he was watching an old episode of Lingo on Game Show Network, and noticed that one of the contestants was none other than Silky Pony's baby momma Rielle Hunter.  Being a retard, I foolishly forgot to ask him to bust out a camera and get a photo, but, knowing the internets,  someone probably got one, and it'll turn up.

Oh, and judging from the results of this Google search, at least one other person noticed her appearance, too.

Finally, a band for Larry Craig!

This is the Omaha-based band Tilly and the Wall. The fellas will probably like the percussion section.

And yes, I know it's old.

I'm not buying it

A "baby Tiger"?  Since when are Ewoks and tigers even remotely related?  Nice try.

Algerian Support for War in Iraq Yields Bitter Fruit

43 dead in a suicide bombing by Al Qaeda.

Earlier this month, a blast near a police station in northern Algeria wounded 21 people. And a suicide bomber on a motorcycle targeted a military convoy in late July, injuring 13 soldiers.

In both instances, the militant group Al Qaeda Islamic Maghreb claimed responsibility.

The same group also is accused of orchestrating a double car bomb attack in Algiers in December that struck a United Nations headquarters and Algeria's Constitutional Council building. The attack killed dozens of people, including 17 U.N. staffers.

What? Algeria wasn't involved in the war in Iraq? Well, surely large contingents of U.N. soldiers raped the innocent in Iraq! No?

AQIM seeks to destabilize countries such as Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia, which it sees as enemies of the Islamic state, authorities say.
Then it must be the Moroccan and Tunisian soldiers who were especially brutal in Iraq and Afghanistan! No? You mean to tell me that this bombing didn't have anything to do with Goebush McHitlerBurton's war for oil?

Strange.

McCain handed opportunity

Now, will he screw that opportunity up or not?  In any case, Obama is getting hammered for his ghoulish stance on abortion and lies about the issue.  I have to think even some people who are moderately pro-choice are going to be turned off by Obama's extreme positions and record on the issue.
