From the Good News/Bad News Department
Good News – Eric Holder Jr. will accept the post of Attorney General in the Obama administration. This means we won’t be seeing any more Jena 6 episodes where local prosecutors and judges run wild with making up the law as they go in trying to take the country back to Jim Crow. Holder who has a long history of working in the big time, was appointed to an Associate Judge position by Ronald Reagan and was deputy Attorney General under Clinton. He’s also the son of immigrants from Barbados. I am confident he will bring some justice back to the justice department: where in previous years the Ashcroft and Gonzales terms fired many great lawyers to satisfy Bush’s personal agenda of government by dictatorship.
Bad News – With the approval of Barack Obama the Democratic Caucus allowed Joe Lieberman to retain his post chairing the Senate Homeland Security Committee. I can imagine there are reasons Obama allowed this snake to come back. It could be cause he wants to show the example of new starts and letting bygones be bygones. Certainly he has been the most graceful president elect ever especially with his political rivals. It also may have to do with the fact that Lieberman is Jewish. Regardless there is no way this guy doesn’t flip again at some point. He is a disgrace!
What in the hell is up with these pirates over in Somalia? When did pirating come back in style? I guess it’s not like the peg-legged cats I’m used to seeing on TV back in the day. Nor are they like the Johnny Depp character in the film. These dudes are now taking over oil tankers and shit. WTF? Where is the funding coming from? Is the booty that phat or is this a new game for drug lords? I don’t know, but somebody needs to put a stop to this shit!
Memo to horrible ass parents who are too gutless to take care of their kids – If you can afford to fly or drive your kids across the country to Nebraska to drop them off at a hospital, you can afford to take care of them. I didn’t know this many people were that selfish and stupid as to drop 5 year old kids and teenagers off to get over on a law in Nebraska that was created to give new mothers who are scared of motherhood a safe haven to leave kids without prosecution. In Nebraska’s haste to have a law similar to the rest of the country, the dummy’s forgot to put an age limit on the kids that could be left on hospital doorsteps. So instead of it serving the purpose of it’s intent, which is to basically prevent teen mothers from leaving their newborns in dumpsters, people from around the nation are making a fast trek to the Nebraska border to ditch their “chillin‘. (That’s “children” for those of you who don’t have any of those Southern roots.) Anyway – that’s whack! And ya’ll should be ashamed of yourselves! In the words of Mike Tyson, “You’re scared cowards!”
This week’s hypocrite award goes to our hometown baseball hero, Sir Albert Pujols. You see Albert won Major League Baseball’s MVP award this year. (His second one.) And don’t get me wrong, he is one of the very best baseball has to offer. Dude can flat out play. But in 2006 when Philadelphia Phillie Ryan Howard won the award, because his team didn’t make the playoffs, Albert threw some haterade on Ryan’s party. Said Sir Albert at the time when asked about Ryan winning the award, “I see it this way: Someone who doesn’t take his team to the playoffs doesn’t deserve to win the MVP.” (The Cardinals went to the playoffs and won the World Series that year.)
Well this time Howard’s Phillies finished in first place and won the World Series. Howard also finished second in the MVP voting behind Pujols. The Cardinals did not make the playoffs. It’s the exact same situation in reverse. But somehow Albert feels he deserves to win the award. Although he admits now that Ryan Howard deserved the award in 2006, he doesn’t admit that he was wrong for the statement. It’s almost as if he is saying, “Well since I won it this time it’s all good.” Make up your mind Albert! Is it about the playoffs or “all the numbers” as you say now?
