"Democrats warned that if the debt ceiling isn't raised, the government would cease to function. How would you be able to tell?" –Jay Leno
"You know what the scary part is? Not that the government will cease to function, that they think this is actually the government functioning. They think it is working well." –Jay Leno
"The government is warning that terrorists may try to blow up airplanes by implanting bombs under their skin. The airlines responded by saying they'll charge any terrorists that do this a $50 carry-on fee." –Jay Leno
"Lady Gaga complained that the U.S. is allowing Iran and North Korea to get nukes and we have to stop them. Before the White House makes any decision, they’re waiting to hear from Britney Spears." –Jay Leno
"Vice President Joe Biden has a new Twitter account. He said he will not rest until he can embarrass the president on every media platform ever invented." –Jay Leno

Bad Boys Club, or I Want To Screw A Millionaire... I guess in the first episode we drop off a few house maids to see what will happen, in the second half we see them making their own damned beds... Maybe they could form a boy band and learn to perform the song R-E-S-P-E-C-T, with special guest coach Mavis Staples dropping by... See, the lives of the very rich, powerful, and famous aren't all that different from you and me...
I take a break for gonorrhea... News today came that there is a new, drug-resistant strain of the sexually transmitted disease. I recall reading the same thing over thirty years ago, that a drug resistant strain had been incubated in the jungles of Vietnam... actually, 30 years ago it was warned that by using certain drugs to treat easily curable diseases like gonorrhea, they would evolve to develop a resistance to those drugs, which is what seems to have finally happened: "Since antibiotics became the standard treatment for gonorrhea in the 1940s, this bacterium has shown a remarkable capacity to develop resistance mechanisms to all drugs introduced to control it,"
I didn't include Rupert Murdock in my Bad Boy's |Club, because he's in a class of his own. It's ironic that what ultimately is causing his downfall isn't his espousal of right wing politics, but the immoral and illegal tactics of his tabloid newspaper in England. The more they dig into the story the worse it gets. And he will lose billions in folding the News of the World even if he just renames it the British Globe. It will be interesting to see what form the anti-Murdock investigation take once they cross the pond and take root in America... He built Fox News up from the ground, so it will probably begin with the folks that are unhappy at the dumbing down that has gone on at the Wall Street Journal...
