…doesn’t the Department of Homeland Security have better things to do (and spend good taxpayer money on) than worry about warning Americans about turkey fryers? How about paying a little closer attention to that 80-year old grandmother and her 5- and 7-year old grandkids – after all, they’re the ones most likely carrying enough plastic explosive to bring twenty planes down.

…I don’t recall eating in any of these restaurant chains except for Don Pablos. We used to go there quite a bit when we lived in Louisville. Great salsa and a nice enchilada sauce, as I recall.

…as much as Justin Verlander had a great year for the Tigers, you don’t vote a pitcher for MVP unless they’ve have a truly historic season. Verlander’s was good, but it wasn’t historic. Me? As much as I hate to admit it, the Yankees’ Curtis Granderson would have been my choice for MVP.

…have we become that coarse of a society that the music greeting Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s entrance on Jimmy Fallon’s show was Fishbone’s “Lyin’ Ass Bitch”. Absolutely disgraceful. I mean, what would happen if Michelle Obama showed up on Fox News’ “Red Eye” and the they played the Rolling Stones’ “Bitch” or Elton John’s “The Bitch Is Back”. Why, heads would roll. But when it comes to conservative women it’s open season, and it’s a disgrace.

…and speaking of bi**hes, haven’t heard much from that totally unethical, ambulance-chasing lawyer Gloria Allred and her Herman Cain accusers lately, have you? It’s amazing what can happen when an accused says “enough is enough” and hires his own power of attorney to send a message. GOP candidates take notice.

…while last night’s CNN’s GOP debate on foreign policy was by far the best presented and most substantive thus far, I can’t help but wonder how you could have a foreign policy debate without any questions on the Fast & Furious scandal or the Obama administration’s American job-killing efforts involving the Keystone pipeline or the Air Force’s decision to have a light attack aircraft built in Brazil instead of the USA. Jobs freakin’ matter, but you won’t see CNN say anything that would compromise their role as Obama butt-kisser.

…the winner of tonight’s debate was easy to find: I think Newt’s answers throughout were the most substantial and the most practical. Everyone else except Jon Huntsman (who would do everyone a big favor and drop out now ) did alright. But I’m uncomfortable with foreign policy debates in general because its just so much armchair quarterbacking; until you’re in the Oval Office and seeing all the intelligence reports as Commander-in-Chief you have no clue what’s really going on out there. Still, I think this debate will propel Newt to the top of the field. Sure, his immigration answer is going to tork off some conservatives, but it was the most rational and practical. You’re not going to deport 20 million (or however many) illegals; sooner or later you’re going to have to pick and choose who stays and who goes based on their ties, time here, and good citizenship. Anyone else who thinks differently isn’t living in the real world.

Rob is right, Lana Del Ray has a pretty sultry style in a modern fashion. She sounds almost early Stevie Nicks to me. He mentioned her videos “Blue Jeans” and “Video Games” but I like this one. Someone calls her style “gangster Nancy Sinatra” – now there’s something to aspire to!

  1. Doug:

    You made a good point. Some callers were angry
    That Jacoby Ellsbury did not get the MVP. Pitchers only play in their rotation. I think Roger Clemens was the only other pitcher to win the MVP award.

  2. “…the Yankees’ Curtis Granderson would have been my choice for MVP.”

    Okay, who are you and what have you done with the real GWS?(Not that you’re wrong about pitchers and the MVP)

  3. You don’t know how hard it was for me to write those words, Dave! Hope you and yours had a great turkey day!
