I know you did. Sorry, but the MP had to hit the road and share his charm and good looks with America at large for a few weeks.
Don't worry, I'll have a treat for you later wherein I explain why I'm not a Libertarian. And yes, it is longer than just, "those fuckers are crazy." That would suffice, but I figure I'll give you a little more to chew on.
Two more things:
1) When Farrah Fawcett died, she went to heaven and God told her she could have one wish. She wished for all the children to be safe. Michael Jackson died moments later.*
2) Does Woody Allen's wife have to buy him a Father's Day Card?

You know, I feel bad for the tattoo artist on some level. If she would have kept up with the lie and dragged him into court, it could have destroyed him financially, that's a lot of stress he didn't deserve. I'm sure he's probably been taking a bunch of shit over this whole thing too.

I'd sooner expect the administration to take action over Obama's shiny pretty mug being used to advertise something than to actually object to the IP theft.

Some attendees at the 87th annual Colorado Municipal League Conference were in seminars such as "Natural Disasters: Preparation and Response," put on by the Evans city manager, and "Do as I Say and as I Do: Making Municipal Facilities Energy Efficient,"put on by an architect and a Lafayette council member.
"No one can say this is a junket," said Sam Mamet, executive director of the Colorado Municipal League. "This is a quality conference, and people recognize it as such."
But a reporter, producer and photographer from 9News who visited the conference Thursday found plenty of municipal officials who had decided to forgo the panel on "Maintaining Your Infrastructure in a Tight Economy" and instead hang out in the halls and lobby.
Unaware she was speaking to a reporter and being taped, Glendale City Council member LuVerne Davenport said the city brought six people to the conference so they could rotate through the panels and no one would have to go to all of them.
So what do they do when they are not in the seminars?
"We goof off," Davenport said.
Not missing Milwaukee.
Apparently, I am missing some amazing developments around the world.
Is North Korea seriously going to shoot a missile at Hawaii? Is Obama seriously such a bitch that he doesn't openly mention the end of North Korea if that is the case?
Also, GO Iranian protesters. Too bad nothing will come of it.
Bone marrow registration is free from now until June 22, or until they run out of funding for free registrations. Anyone who registers will get a free tour of the Department of Hotassery and Stompy Boots from alexthechick after MP takes office.

One of the commenters at another site I frequent posted the following picture.
I harassed some information about it out of him:
Best proof I got is the video of the jump as I was jumping. The image gets blurry because the opening shock of my chute opening broke the camera, but you can at least see watch as I jump from the C-130J onto Iron Mike1 drop zone in St. Mere Eglise at 1200 feet above ground at 20 knot winds. It was raining when I got on the plane, stopped raining before I jumped and started raining again after I landed. I got my senior rated parachutist wings pinned on me by a 87 year old vet who jumped on D'day and had 3 combat jumps.Vid below the fold so as to not completely wreck the dude's photobucket account, along with a couple of absolutely beautiful pictures he emailed me. Eddge, thanks for sharing the pictures and vid, and thank you so much for your service.

Although, if you think about it, a couple of them are actually pretty lucky, considering the circumstances (i.e. they lived).
Update: Heh. I didn't see MP's earlier post.
"At first I just saw a large ball of light and then I suddenly felt a pain in my hand."
Chastity Bono is now Chaz Bono. I think I can speak for all of us when I say "Wait...hasn't she been a man for a while now?"
Fun fact: I wanted to use this post title on Twitter or Facebook, but I have so many new friends who would see this as proof I hate teh gheys (BECAUSE OF THE FASCISM!!1!!eleventy!!11!!!!) that it made it very not worth it.

Since Planned Parenthood receives federal funding, these are abortions that each and every one of us got to pay just a little bit more for. And guys, you didn't even get laid for the privilege.
I'm sure some of you will be drooling over her, since besides being a smart non-feminist feminist blogger, she's a cutie. So Tabitha, when you happen over here to see where all the slavering morons asking for pictures of your shoes are coming from, consider this an apology.

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused his election rivals on Wednesday of adopting smear tactics used by Germany's dictator Adolf Hitler and said they could face jail for insulting him.
My favorite thing about dictators is that they are unaware of how perfectly stereotypical they are. No wonder they are generally viewed with less disdain than they deserve, they are caricatures.
Is anyone else getting like a bajillion new followers on Twitter today? Either this is spam or I should kickstart my impending run for President in 2016* because I'm suddenly at the peak of my fame.
* - I'm not sure I'm kidding at this point. I mean, I'll have no shot but I'd like to speak loudly as a candidate anyway. Moron Pundit for President - 2016 (the first year I'm eligible).
