One subtext of Tuesday's stunning election results is just how little return GOP statewide officials who tried to suppress the black vote got on their investment. For months, we'd read (most read, cable news didn't really touch thisShow More Summary
So yeah, Obama won again. Unlike 4 years ago, which felt historical, this simply felt like vindication. Not revenge. Just vindication.I think the American People proved for once and for all that you can't insult large swaths of the populace...Show More Summary
Well, well, well. In just a day or so, we'll finally (hopefully) know who'll be running this country for the next 4 years. After a campaign that's essentially lasted the past 4 years, Mitt Romney hopes to unseat the imcumbent, President Barack Obama. Show More Summary
You wanna talk about it. Here's your placeholder. Talk.Question: Who's gonna win the election?!?
After Sandy prevented me from exercising my Constitutional right (among other things) I finally voted this morning. If you haven't done so already, I'd encourage you to take advantage of your state's early voting period. Spare yourself...Show More Summary
Armageddon cometh. Even tho' it's Photoshopped.Okay, not so much. Thank you Jesus, my family didn't suffer much more than some broken tree limbs and a front yard full of leaves. My chrysanthemums are pretty much destroyed too. But otherwise, we straight. Show More Summary
Yep, it's Silly Season alright. Especially when dumb sht like this is actually getting aired on real television, including BET, in swing states like Ohio.The 30-second ad is black and white, which would make it stand out even if the content was drab. Show More Summary
It's officially Silly Season, and surrogates, pundits, and random weed carriers on both side of the political aisle are actin' a fool, all in hopes of seeing their candidate of choice on that podium come election day.Some folks, however, take their rooting interests a bit too far. Show More Summary
I'm busy, so go on without me. Drop links, write your own posts. You know the drill by now.Question: What's on your mind today?
I read Very Smart Brothas fairly frequently. I don't comment, but it's a site that I check out on Pulse regularly. Champ and Panama just have a great knack for making mundane stuff entertaining, especially when they do "lists". So yeah, it's Tuesday. Show More Summary
You know you watched it. And I know you wanna talk about it. So lets talk.Honestly, while I've obviously somewhat biased here, I think it's clear Obama "won" this debate. Coupled with his performance in Round II, it seems likely that Barry will see a reasonable upswing in the polls over the next 3-4 days. Show More Summary
If there's one leadership (or lack thereof) trait about President Obama that's always bugged me, it's his willingness to fold when the GOP takes the country hostage. We saw it in 2010 when he buckled to GOP pressure and dropped the Dream Act and extended Bush tax cuts for the rich, all to avoid a Government Shutdown. Show More Summary
No need to lie to you folks. Since last Friday's total and complete 9th inning collapse by my Washington Nationals, I haven't watched a minute of playoff baseball. Something about having your heart ripped out in such an epic fashion eliminates your desire to be bothered anymore. Show More Summary
You know you watched it. And I know you wanna talk about it. Here's your Open Mic. Have at it. I'll chime in later.Question: Who "won" last night's debate? Will this sway "undecided voters" or are "undecided voters" a bunch of morons who just love attention?!?
I'm busier than RGIII on that 76 yard TD run today, so go on without me. Drop links, write your own posts. You know the drill by now.Question: What's on your mind today?
I've only been sent this video about 1,911 times this week, by people who assume I'm supposed to have something of importance to say because one of these guys (not both) is a fellow Kappa man, and also because I'm supposed to be outraged...Show More Summary
Yeah, I'm late to the party. Whatever. Digest and discuss. Question: What's your read on this?!? Pushy Teenage Girl Gets Decked Hard by Bus Driver: ‘Wanna Be a Man, I’m Gonna Treat You Like a Man’ [Gawker]
Caption this photo. Best caption wins a week's supply of Cyber CapriSuns™.
I'm genetically predisposed to watching any TV show called Single Ladies so I honestly can't say I've heard much from/about Stacey Dash since she starred in the 90's tween hit movie Clueless. Recently, Dash, who I believe is somewhat between jobs at the moment, endorsed Mitt Romney via Twitter, setting off a "firestorm of controversy". Show More Summary
Slow posting this week. If you need to know what I think about anything, you should prolly follow me on Twitter. Anyways, there is stuff to blog about, so lets get it in...Unemployment Rate Drops To 7.8% - I suppose this might help remove some of the stench of Obama's piss poor debate performance the other night.
