Monday Night Rant, DSK and RM

"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

"Sarah Palin spoke out about Independence Day, saying that if the British had won the war, we'd all be speaking English today." –Jay Leno

"And this little piggy..."
I was wondering how long it would take before some lawyer involved in the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case got around to referring to the plaintiff as a prostitute. Yeah, she's a thirty-five year old black woman working as a hotel chambermaid? She must be a whore... But they tastefully waited until they leaked the contents of a tape first, that had the woman scheming on how to take advantage of this thing, so that she could make some money off of it. Evidently, Rupert Murdock's reporters hadn't found her yet, oh, wait, they are the ones hired to do the character smear... The only good thing that I can say about this case is that Dominique will have another complaint filed in French court waiting for him when he gets home, unless they demonize her in public, too Bet he'll go to England and hole up on vacation with the head of wikileaks for awhile...

Or, we could put them on a reality TV series, lock them in a big house along with Rod Blagojevich, Anthony Weiner, Rod Sanford, Jon Ensign, and Arnold Schwartzennegger. The contest is to come up with the name for the show, like the 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...
