Some good quotes in here, especially when he gets started on the genius that is B.B.

I don't care if you guys haven't seen him. Bill Belichick has seen him. Do you really think that he is the genius everyone claims him to be and just a rock head when it comes to his backup quarterback



ha - I love it

But why let the facts get in the way of a perfectly good rant?

Palin's Church

She belonged to the Wasilla Assembly of God church in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska. But though she attended the church from her teenage years to 2002, the Alaska governor hasn't talked much about her religion since joining the Republican ticket.

Palin's former pastor, Tim McGraw, says that like many Pentecostal churches, some members speak in tongues, although he says he's never seen Palin do so. Church member Caroline Spangler told CNN, "When the spirit comes on you, you utter things that nobody else can understand ... only God can understand what is coming out of our mouths."

Some Pentecostals from Assembly of God also believe in "faith healing" and the "end times" -- a violent upheaval that they believe will deliver Jesus Christ's second coming.

Some weird site wrote:Sixteen US troops from the a unit of the Airborne Division have committed suicide inside a military base in Iraq, security sources say.
...
The suicides took place in the soldiers' dormitory after the dinner time.

"The bodies of the US troops became misshapen such a way that they looked like 5000-year mummies," said a witness.

I guess it's relative but that doesn't seem that odd. The majority of Christians in the U.S. and Canada believe in these things. And even Catholics (most "normal" to the outsider) accept all of them.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

CNN.com wrote: Two-party 'charade' must end, Ron Paul says

"I've come to the conclusion, after having spent many years in politics, is that our presidential elections turn out to be more of a charade than anything else, and I think that is true today. It is a charade," he said.
...
Paul said a strong showing by the third-party candidates would express the public's frustration with the current system.

Then that settles it, I'm totally voting for Jackson Grimes, presidential candidate for the United Fascist Union.

Here is a picture of Mr. Grimes with his (presumably) wife:

According to Project Vote-Smart, Grimes favorite food is fruitcake, and he currently drives a 1983 Oldsmobile 88 Royale. He enjoys chess, playing the violin, and big band music.

Evidently he never smiles. He probably needs more fiber in his diet.

His campaigns platform includes abolishing Christianity and replacing it with classical Roman Paganism fused with the political system of Fascist Italy. A Pagan himself, Grimes also claims to have played Adolf Hitler on an episode of "Star Trek."
