John Kerry: Do well in school or you end up in Iraq

UPDATE: Click Here for a review of John Kerry's upcoming Joke Book.

Just in case you needed another reason to dislike John Kerry.

(via Drudge)

“You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

You know something stinks here. The Republicans are facing a blowout in a week; Democrats are riding a wave of glowing media coverage. Nothing could damage the Democrats chances. Unless....someone like Karl Rove was involved. Because Kerry could not possibly be that stupid...can he?

Update: Senator McCain blasts Kerry
Senator Kerry owes an apology to the many thousands of Americans serving in Iraq, who answered their country's call because they are patriots and not because of any deficiencies in their education. Americans from all backgrounds, well off and less fortunate, with high school diplomas and graduate degrees, take seriously their duty to our country, and risk their lives today to defend the rest of us in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.

They all deserve our respect and deepest gratitude for their service. The suggestion that only the least educated Americans would agree to serve in the military and fight in Iraq, is an insult to every soldier serving in combat, and should deeply offend any American with an ounce of appreciation for what they suffer and risk so that the rest of us can sleep more comfortably at night. Without them, we wouldn't live in a country where people securely possess all their God-given rights, including the right to express insensitive, ill-considered and uninformed remarks.
Other Coverage
Marine Times has already reported the story. Let's see if if gets any more coverage before Kerry is forced to backtrack.
The White House calls for an apology
The USA Today blog has a roundup or reaction
Chicago Tribune blog also has a post
The Hotline lists the Donks spin
John Boehner (R-OH) also asks for an apology
Typical CNN: "Kerry 'stuck in Iraq' remarks make red-staters blue with anger". Kerry's comments should anger blue, red, green, yellow staters equally.
Kerry's response...who are his advisors?

More Uses for Castro's Corpse

"Now, when our enemies have prematurely declared me moribund or dead, I'm happy to send to our compatriots and friends around the world this short film footage,"

The film footage was of Castro reading the news, however after airing the video more questions have come up. For instance, a news story Castro read mentioned that on tonight's Seinfeld George tries to get fired from The Yankees by dragging their World Series trophy around the stadium parking lot. Everybody knows that the Yanks have not won a world series since the year 2000.

Plus, why would I pen another post about uses for his body if he's not dead? Behold, more uses for Castro's corpse. If you have more, post them in the comments.

#15 - Blogger site admin
#22 - a Madonna Adoption
#32 - Player Hater
#39 - Blocks on which to place an old, junker of a car (he'd have to be cut up for this, of course) - rt
#45 - Halloween Mask

Cards Could Win Tonight

My Cardinals are 9 innings away from their first World Series championship since 1982. I still have a pennant from that year, with the names of that team: Ozzie, Herr, Porter...

Before I get ahead of myself and start crowning this team: Taguchi, Eckstein, Molina...

No, I should not forget the last time St. Louis was up 3-1 in a World Series. The year was 1985 and they were up on a lifeless Kansas City Royals team until the 9th inning of what should have been the last inning of the 85 World Series. One play. Some say "the worst call in sports history" spun the series around and ended with the Royals Game 7 romp. Last year, the Cardinals hopes were seemingly dashed on one call and I will be watching tonight, hoping for a bland victory. Please, no "calls".

Things I cannot stand about this World Series
-John Mellencamp
-Joe Morgan, possibly the most annoying broadcaster...ever in the history of history. I'd rather have the guy who broadcast the Hindenburg disaster call a game before Joe Morgan.
-People at work wishing me "good luck" as if I was playing second base.
-No National Anthem in Detroit (no wonder they are down 3-1)
-Kenny Rogers
-The red imperial that St. Louis fans have started wearing.
-Fox's field-level camera and the slow-motion camera.
-Fox's nonstop camera shots of people in the stands. Isn't there a baseball game on?
-Any commercial done in Spanish...that I have to see the next inning in English.
-Vin Scully on the radio: "The Cardinals should not even be here...they are the worst team in the playoffs". Shut up and broadcast you pompous ass.

Go Cards.

NYC Worker - Hard at Work

My buddy Basil from Basil's Blog was trolling a list of visitors to his blog yesterday and noticed a visitor from New York. Not only did this visitor to his site come from the greatest city to not have a baseball team in the World Series, they were listed as visiting from a computer registered to the city of New York (a nyc.gov extension).

"So what" you ask? People search the net at work is nothing new, even I have been known to do that . What the NYC city worker was looking for is what drew Basil's attention.

I guess Basil didn't have what the city worker was looking for. But this brings up a key question.

Did Mark Foley get a job with the city of New York?

Update: At least this worker was not playing solitare.

Shut Up And Sing Movie Trailer

If you needed something to really get you going on Wednesday, here is your Hump Day Moment of Zen.

Since the Dixie Chicks cannot complete a tour in the states or sell a CD, now they are going to put out a movie? But, I guess someone thought that a movie about a group of time travelers who take people off doomed airlines and put them in the future sounded like a winner.

Top 10 Reasons Not To See Shut Up and Sing
10. Uhh it's the Dixie Chicks
9. After a week of poor ticket sales, they'll probably just put it in theaters in Canada and Boston.
8. The Dixie Chicks are so 2004
7. The plot is about a celebrity making an asinine political statement. You don't have to pay $12 to see that, check out MTV or CNN for free.
6. Too hard of a decision to make for stoners since Shut Up & Sing and Death of a President both open this Friday.
5. Conservatives would be upset if they bought a ticket thinking it was a movie based on the book by Laura Ingraham
4. The chunky Dixie Chick will just blow the profits on ho-hos.
3. Saw III opens on Friday.
2. St. Louis will still be celebrating their World Series Championship this Friday.

and the #1 reason not to see SU&S:
1. You just know they're going to show this guy during the film.

24 Season 6 Sneak Peek

Watch the webclip here!
(just hit the play button twice after the Toyota commercial)

Blogs4Bauer liveblogged the event.

Hot Wing Recap - Week 7

It's Week 7 in the Fantasy Football, halfway through the season and some teams are getting clost to being eliminated from the playoffs. The 16 team league is truely a league of the haves (The Columbia CRUNCH 6-1) and the have nots (Hot Wing Chump-ion 0-6-1).

For a list of how our scores work, click here.

Mr Wolf Cleaning Svc - 22
Robots Eat Babies - 88

Mr. Wolf increased his score 1,000% from last week's 2 point showing, however he still fell 66 points behind my team REB. At this pace, he should score 220 points next week, watch out bRight & Early. Mr. Wolf did get 9 points from NY Giant QB Eli Manning, but I got 22 points from the Giants Defense.
MVP - Peyton Manning 32 Points (342 Yards, 4TDs)
Goat - Julius Jones 2 Points (13 Rushes - 30 Yards)

webcats - 40
bRight & Early- 56

It seems that Bye weeks hurt many teams this week, including the webcats. Not starting a RB was a bad idea. Starting JP Losman is worse. Webcats still have Losman on their roster, even though he has only 3 fantasy points all season.
MVP - Brian Westbrook 16 Points (101 Yards Rushing, 113 Yards Receiving, 1 TD)
Goat - JP Losman -7 Points (1 Int, 0 TDs, 3 Fumbles)

RFTR - 71
Hot Wing Chump-ion- 30

These teams are 1-12-1 combined, both had zero wins going into this week and I expected a -15 to -15 tie. RFTR, who has a habit of never checking his teams blew this one out.
MVP - Hines Ward 28 Points (171 Yards Receiving, 3 TDs)
Goat - Jake Plummer 2 Points (2 Ints, 1 TDs, 2 Sacks)

I hate Hillary - 39
fragtops' spewers - 75

"I give up" is how fragtops commented on going into Week 7 with only one win. Quitters never win, except when the other team starts Bruce Gradkowski at QB.
MVP - David Carr (projected points -1) 14 Points (224 Yards Passing, 2 TDs)
Goat - Bruce Gradkowski -2 Points (104 Yards Passing, 1 Fumble)

San Jose Arrowheads - 40
Gumbo - 48

SJA started only 7 players this week, I guess going 6-0 went to their heads. Gumbo is this week's lion-killer after entering the week 3-3. SJA now sits in 2nd place, I hear the head coach may be fired.
MVP - Alge Crumpler (117 Yards Receiving, 3 TDs)
Goat - SJA for not starting 3 positions and losing

Rose Hill Reddogs - 27
Hector Vex O-Trons - 42

RHR seems to be preparing his team for the year 2009 by starting Jay Cutler at QB even though he has yet to take a snap in the NFL. If I were the coach of Denver, Cutler would have replaced Plummer weeks ago, but that does not matter in the fantasy world. Holding clipboards and wearing baseball hats backwards do not get you points.
MVP - Tatum Bell 11 Points (115 Yards Rushing, 1 TD)
Goat - Jay Cutler 0 Points (3 Dropped Clipboards)

The Columbia CRUNCH - 64
Gridiron Wookies - 34
TCC lost for the first time last week, so he was looking for someone to beat up on to get back on track. Too bad for the Wookies, his QB ended up with a goose-egg..against the Texans.
MVP - Larry Johnson 19 Points (132 Yards Rushing, 2 TDs)
Goat - Byron Leftwich 0 Points (nothing)

Tax Dodgers - 70
The Ball Sackers - 53

The BSs had a great game from McNabb, TO, and Jones. Too bad the Dodgers had great games from 5 players and won the matchup even though Drew Brees was starting...while on a bye week.
MVP - Donovan McNabb 21 Points (302 Yards Passing, 3 TDs)
Goat - The Jags Defense for making Houston look like the 87 Bears on Tecmo Bowl.

Merry Christmas From The Yankees

New York Yankee season ticket holders got a shock when they were mailed a flyer for a limited-edition "Yankees Victory Plane" Christmas Ornament. Included was a picture of Santa piloting a plane (with the Yankee logo) into a Christmas Tree.

The timing is bad, not because Christmas is still months away, but because earlier this month Cory Lidle, a pitcher for The Yanks, was killed in a horrible plane accident.

The Danbury Mint produced the $19.99 ornament.

Kenny Rogers: Cheat

"It was a big clump of dirt," - Kenny Rogers

Dirt? Looks more like the Tigers clubhouse ran out of toilet paper. If it is "dirt", they have some serious "dirt" there in Detroit and what's Kenny doing playing in it before a World Series start?

Kenny Rogers pitched a great game last night, however the "dirt" on his hand is what will become the most discussed issue of this postseason.

ESPN went back and looked at tapes of his starts against the Yankees and A's and noticed a little "dirt" on his hands for those starts as well. You shouldn't judge a Tiger by it's stripes, but it appears that Kenny is a cheat.

It was cold last night and the pitchers were allowed to blow on their hands to keep them warm. He also looked like he was doing a little more than blowing on his hands during the game.

Shots of Rogers' hand from Game 3 of the ALCS, left, and Sunday

Did Kenny Rogers Cheat in Game 2 of the World Series?

You can also vote at ESPN.com if you think he was cheating (60% think so).

World Series Call

Based on the MLB skipping the national anthem in Detroit last night, I say "Cards in six".

What say you?

Game 2 Update: Kenny Rogers is a damn cheat. Fox, the Cardinals, and the umpire staff busted him with a strange substance on his pitching hand.

While Kenny Rogers did pitch a great game, he had to pitch out of a serious jam in the 1st inning by (what appears to be) cheating. Check his glove for an emory board.

You got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em,
Know when to walk Pujols and know when to juice the ball.

You Gotta....Wait Till Next Year

WOW. Bases loaded. 2 Out. Bottom of the 9th. Carlos Beltran goes down looking.

Someone should have stuck a lump of coal up my butt in the 6th inning. We would have had a nice diamond right about now.

Like I said....Cards in Seven

Well my Cards are going into Game 7 of the NLCS. Personally, I'd love for them to win this series just so I don't have to hear crap from the annoying Met fans that seem to have crawled out of the woodwork just this season.

My St. Louis cap has been through 2 games at Yankee stadium (in the bleachers no less) and 3 at Shea. My cap can attest that Met fans are the most obnoxious group of people this side of Philadelphia Eagles games. While I did endure some taunts and middle fingers in the Bronx, Met fans are just plain annoying. They are like a Northeast version of Chicago Cubs fans (that is, Cub fans in May - before their team sinks to the bottom of the division).

What makes it worse, are the 1.2 million "revived" Met fans that put away their Jeter shirts and pulled out their old Mets crap. These bandwagon fans are the ones who are wearing Benny Agbayani jerseys. During the 1990s in Nashville, I had to put up with bandwagon Braves fans who probably had no clue who Dale Murphy was, but knew how to piss me off with that damn tomahawk chop and the "ohhhh-oohhh-ohhhh" chant they used to do.

No matter what comes out of tonight's game (please Lord - a Cardinals win), one thing I can take away are how the NY sports writers (also annoying) had to eat a big helping of humble pie this week. Most thought the Mets would sweep aside the Redbirds on their way to the World Series. I think some still hoped for a Subway Series (sorry Yankee fans). One is NY Sun writer Tim Marchman, here's a classic example of a sports writer eating crow.

Expect the Mets To Win the Pennant
The specific matchup problems that made the Dodgers look like a decent bet to upset the Mets aren't there; this is a meeting between like teams, and the Mets, who won 14 more games in the regular season, are simply much better. I don't think the series will be competitive. (10/11)
Pujols, Cards Finally Get to Glavine and Push Mets to Brink
There will be time enough, if the Mets don't win, to ponder whether all of their problems amounted to bad luck, injury, and some technical challenges they weren't able to overcome, or whether they just choked. For now I'm feeling quite foolish about having claimed this series wouldn't be competitive, and quite eager to see whether or not the Mets can ease back tonight and so what they did so naturally all year long. (10/18)

Mayor Bloomberg Carjacked in Jersey

NEW YORK (AP) — A personal employee of Mayor Michael Bloomberg was beaten by thieves who then carjacked the billionaire's car Wednesday morning in New Jersey, authorities said.

The employee was driving the 2001 Lexus in Hackensack, N.J., on an errand for the mayor shortly before 9 a.m. when he was approached by a woman who came to the window to ask for money, police said. As he declined and began to roll up the window, a man got into the passenger seat and punched him in the face.

Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland Wins The Steve Lyons Award for Excellence in Racism

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland accepted a Steve Lyons Award for Excellence in Racism at a press conference today. Hoyer won the award after stating that Michael Steele, a Maryland African-American Senate candidate "slavishly" supported the Republican Party.

"a career of slavishly supporting the Republican Party,"
-Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland
The setting of this statement is also worth noting since he was speaking to a group of mainly African-Americans.

Hoyer tried to spin and blame Michael Steele for the racist statements made by himself by stating "If Mr. Steele did in fact take offense, let me assure him that none was intended," Hoyer said. "But Mr. Steele continuously tries to divert attention from the fact that he is an unwavering supporter of the Republican agenda and of President Bush and Vice President Cheney.""

Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland stopped short of donning blackface and chucking Oreos at a burning effigy of Steele.

Racist comments are nothing new to Hoyer, who called Steele a "token" candidate back in 2002.

Diane Farrell Wouldn't Know a Bold Idea if it Slapped Her on the Ass

Democrat Diane Farrell put out the following attack ad, which appears to feature some former backers of her opponent Republican Chris Shays.

However some research by a Connecticut Newspaper uncovered that the "Shays supporters" are not what they seem. Check out the ad.
Bold Ideas

I supported Chris Shays for years, because I liked his independence, but he’s different…different now
The grey haired man at the beginning of the ad claims to have "supported Shays for years" was identified as Dennis Murphy. The Shays "support" going back years seems out of character, since Murphy has been a member of the Democratic State Central Committee, and has provided financial support for Shays opponents as far back as 1996.

Nice try Diane.

Dennis Murphy was in hot water for soliciting campaign contributions from subordinates. He was supporting Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy a Republican (just kidding, he was a Democrat).

Dem/Labor Leader Arrested in NYC

Brian M. McLaughlin, a seven-term Democratic state assemblyman and leader of nation's largest municipal labor council was arrested on federal racketeering charges. McLaughlin is accused of stealing more than $2 million from the state, labor unions and even a Little League fund.

Among the funds identified by the indictment were McLaughlin's political campaign committee, union accounts meant to provide benefits for union members and even contributions meant to support a Little League baseball program.
What a jerk.

He used his position as a Democratic state assemblyman to funnel almost $100,000 from the youth sports programs, including $6,000 that he used to pay rent on his apartment.

McLaughlin is also charged with giving money to various women "whom he had a personal relationship." According to his bio, he's still married and has 5 kids so it seems that Brian may have more to worry about than a little time in federal "pound him in the ass" prison.

McLaughlin's only hope is if he gets U.S. District Judge John G. Koeltl to hear his case.

Letters to the Editor

Last week I mentioned about the ding-a-lings who write letters to papers like AMNY. However after reading one in today's AMNY, you have to wonder who's the biggest ding-a-ling, the people who write them or the editors who read and then publish the letters.

Today's letter comes from Janice Amato from Manhattan. I did a Google search for Ms. Amato and more letters, written to the NY Press. Check it out and see if you think she needs to up the meds a notch:

I still skim your paper because you occasionally print something that’s informative that bucks the conventional wisdom, such as Robert Ecksel’s excellent piece ("New York City," 12/10) exposing the NYPD as the lazy sh*theads they really are. I hope no one writes in to call it "liberal" or "left wing", because telling the truth and criticizing lawless government that protects criminals isn’t left wing...
It’s not hypocritical of rich Democrats to ride in limos (though I find it noxious), because at least these rich white men care about poor people and minorities, which is a lot more honorable (and Christian) than the hypocritical rich white men of the Republican Party who only care about themselves because they got theirs already. I wish I weren’t an atheist because I know Jesus No. 2 would go after these greedy selfish Republicans first, putting an end to their bullsh*t and hypocrisies.
Wow. Imagine if this cheerful New Yorker ran into a tourist looking for directions.

But wait...there's more:
Didn’t Bush insist his humongous tax cuts would turn our economy around? Didn’t his daddy ridicule this totally failed Reaganomics as "voodoo economics"? And didn’t history already prove Reaganomics as a total failure? Or will MUGGER say that trickle-down economics works as we see from how much richer the working poor got in the 80s? Do MUGGER and other right-wing dorks suggest that the tax cuts did, in fact, turn our economy around? The biggest tax cuts in history should equal the biggest economic boom in history, no?

Yeah. Which brings us to today's letter from poster-child for Ritalin: Janice Amato. She wants all us Republicans to come out and apologize to liberals (because they were right on "every single topic." After that we are also supposed to admit that Iraq is the new Vietnam, oh and Republicans "are more sexually depraved than Democrats".

Here's my apology: Janice, I'm sorry you're an idiot...but I blame Bush for that.

UGA Got Neutered

"This Georgia team is for real!" one ESPN Announcer said during the UT - Georgia game (a game won by Tennessee 51-33).

Any talk of this Georgia team being for real ended when SEC whipping boy Vanderbilt went to Athens and handed Georgia a slice of humble pie.
Saturday - October 14, 2006
Vanderbilt 24, (16) Georgia 22

Georgia sucks and they still have to play Florida, Auburn, and Georgia Tech. Hell, I might as well throw Kentucky into that mix, since the Bulldogs cannot even beat Vandy at home.

While the Bulldogs fell out of the AP Top 25, they still drew 63 votes! Who are these people and why are they #27 in the BCS rankings? A team that squeaked by Colorado, was demolished by their first real opponent (UT), and then lost to Vandy should be wiped clear of the BCS and AP.

On October 28th Georgia's travels to Florida and I hear Georgia's going to dress up as pre-season SEC favorites for Halloween. However, I think the SEC and NCAA should cancel that game , it's going to be a bloodbath.

New York is home to many nice and wonderful people (like me). However it's also home to some real ding-a-lings. The nice people (like me) read papers, the ding-a-lings write letters to the paper.

Most of the letters I mock come from AMNY, because they seem to have a disporportionate number of ding-a-lings who read that crappy paper. I also check out the Newsday and other papers for gems.

Advocacy group advocates for more fake voters in Tennessee

Election officials in Nashville have found more fraudulent voter registration forms filed by the liberal advocacy group, ACORN.

The forms were found with wrong Social Security numbers, wrong birth dates, and wrong signatures. Wrong signatures? What did the idiots sign their own name?

These new forms were added to the ones that were found in Davidson and Williamson County last week by a group hired by the Republican National Committee.

St. Louis election officials found 1,492 (that's a way to show Columbus Day spirit) "potentially fraudulent" voter registration cards also submitted by the nuts at ACORN. Ohio and Pennsylvania have also reported similar cases of fraud. Also in St. Louis, a former ACORN employee was fired when she told co-workers to disregard orders to suggest people vote for Claire McCaskill, a Democrat. PubDef has the interview with video.

NLCS Predictions - Mother Nature Hates The Mets Too

St. Louis Beats Mets in 6
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
It seems that Mother Nature hates the Mets as much as I do. Why else would she dump rain on Game 1, allowing Chris Carpenter to move up and possibly pitch Game 2?

With Jeff Weaver starting Game 1, it seems as if the Cards are going to toss the first game away. Having Carpenter face off against the rookie, Maine, could send the series back to St. Louis tied at 1. St. Louis was 49-31 at home this season and will have a festive crowd to root on the underdogs for the next 3 games.

The series goes back to New York with the Mets down 3-2 and the Cards win it in Game 6.

Like I said before, my predictions are as useful as an ice cube salesman in Alaska.

Plane Crash in NYC

Update: I went into a 2 hour meeting and came out to find out it was a horrible accident. My prayers go out to the Lidle family and all that are involved.

Update: 7online is claiming it was a helicopter.

Not to don a tin-cap...but today is 10/11.

Hearing word of a possible plane crash in Manhattan.

A small plane has hit an apartment building on York Avenue near 72nd Street. Numerous emergency units responding to the scene. The plane fell to the sidewalk. - 1010 Wins

Personally I hear and see lots of fire trucks on the street, heading that way.

Picture of 3rd Avenue -fire and police trying to make it uptown.

There are large numbers of police and fire vehicles heading up 3rd Avenue, which is clogged with traffic (which is typical). Now people are heading that way on foot. Lots of people.

North Korea Throws Like a Girl

Not only are the people of North Korea starving, oppressed, and unable view GOP and the City. They also have really poor throwing techniques. It's tragically ironic that the whole nation lives in the Stone Age, and they throw stones like a girl.

I noticed this from pictures of a North Korean soldier throwing a rock at a journalist. Just look at his form. He needs help if he's ever called into service to throw more rocks for The Dear Leader.

The Yankees choked, Joe Morgan is a moron, and other obvious observations

Another sign North Korea is way behind the times
So last week I predicted the following teams would meet in the MLB League Championship:
NL - St. Louis Cardinals - New York Mets
AL - Minnesota Twins - New York Yankees

"New York is loaded with expensive talent. While it would be fun to watch fans and the media bash A-Rod all off-season, I think they'll go all the way despite A-Rod. Yanks in 4." - GOP and the City (10/3)

Well I got the NL right 100% right! Go Cards.


If we really want to get information out of the prisoners at GITMO, put those bastards in a room with baseball broadcasters Joe Buck and Joe Morgan. No, on second thought, that would be torture and even I'd have to protest that as inhumane.

During Friday's Tigers-Yankees game, Joe Morgan laid out this craptastic quote about 42-year old Tigers pitcher Kenny Rogers: "If you have 200 victories that means you have been pitching well for a long time".

Wow. Thanks Joe for that profound statement. Mocking Joe Morgan and Joe Buck all weekend really took the edge off watching the Yankees implode.


Going into halftime of the UT-Georgia game on Saturday, ESPN's announcers could not stop from gushing over Georgia. They even had their sideline tart on Georgia's side talking up their QB Joe Tereshinski III like he was the next Joe Montana. Joe this and Joe that. Let's cut away from the footbal game one more time to see Joe playing football as a kid!

"This Georgia team is for real!" said one ESPN announcer at halftime.

Final Score
Tennessee - 51
Georgia - 33

Joe Tereshinski III was pulled in the 4th quarter after throwing 2 interceptions.

The Vols are for real.
