    LOL until I lived in OK, Football to me was like sex better a participant sport then a viewers sport.
    But then I got hooked on Monday night Football, it was that or watching grass grow. It was something my brother-in-law would do. Until then I was only a Miami fan “Go Dolphins!”.

    I’m a Cowboys fan. That’s DALLAS Cowboys, not Oklahoma State. 🙂 Go ahead, laugh, boo me, whatever, but I’ve been a fan since high school, and I will not change allegiance.

      Yeah arrogant ass, a Dolphin fan making fun of a Cowboy fan.

    I know some of you aren’t Bill Maher fans for your own reasons, and that’s okay. But Bill has been hitting the nail squarely on the head for many weeks at the end of his weekly Real Time shows. This week’s final New Rule was one that I have to share. Instead of posting just the link, I’m going to post the whole thing here. Humor me. Read it.

    New Rule: Float Like Obama, Sting Like Ali

    New Rule: Democrats must get in touch with their inner asshole. And no, I’m not being gratuitously crude when I say that. I refer to the case of Van Jones, and I’m sure you know who Van Jones is. At least I hope you do, because I haven’t a clue, or at least I didn’t until this week, when I found out he was the man the Obama administration hired to find jobs for Americans in the new green industries. Seems like a smart thing to do in a recession, but Van Jones got fired because he became the Scary Negro of the Week on Fox News, where, let’s be honest, they still feel threatened by Harry Belafonte.

    Now, I know that right now, I’m supposed to be all re-injected with yes-we-can fever after the big health care speech, and it was a great speech — when Black Elvis gets jiggy with his teleprompter, there is none better. But here’s the thing: Muhammad Ali also had a way with words, but it helped enormously that he could also punch guys in the face.

    What got Van Jones fired was they caught him on tape saying that Republicans are assholes. And they call it “news.” And Obama didn’t say a word in defense of Jones and basically fired him when Glenn Beck told him to. Just like we dropped “end of life counseling” from health care reform because Sarah Palin said it meant “death panels” on her Facebook page.

    Crazy evil morons make up things for Obama to do, and he does it.

    Same thing with the speech to children this week. If you missed it, the president attempted to merely tell school children to work hard and wash their hands, and Cracker Nation reacted as if he was trying to hire the Black Panthers to hand out grenades in homeroom. Of course, the White House immediately capitulated. “No students will be forced to view the speech,” a White House spokesperson assured a panicked nation. Isn’t that like admitting that the president might be doing something unseemly? What a bunch of cowards. If the White House had any balls, they’d say, “He’s giving a speech on the importance of staying in school, and if you spineless jackasses don’t show it to every damn kid in your school we’re cutting off your federal education funding tomorrow.”

    The Democrats just never learn: Americans don’t really care which side of an issue you’re on as long as you don’t act like pussies. When Van Jones called the Republicans assholes, he was paying them a compliment. He was talking about how they can get things done even when they’re in the minority, as opposed to the Democrats, who can’t seem to get anything done even when they control both houses of Congress, the presidency, and Bruce Springsteen.

    I love Obama’s civility in the face of such contumely, his desire to work with his enemies, it’s positively Christ-like. In college, he was probably the guy at the dorm parties who made sure the stoners shared their pot with the jocks. But we don’t need that guy now. We need an asshole.

    Mr. President, there are some people who are never going to like you. That’s why they voted for the old guy and Carrie’s mom. You’re not going to win them over. Stand up for the 70% of Americans who aren’t crazy.

    And speaking of that 70% — let’s call them the sentient majority — when are we going to actually show up in all this? Tomorrow Glenn Beck’s army of zombie retirees are marching on Washington in protest of, well, everything. It’s the Million Moron March, although they won’t get a million of course, because many will be confused and drive to Washington state — but they will make news. Because people who take to the streets always do. They’re at the town hall screaming at the congressman, we’re on the couch screaming at the TV. Especially in this age of electronics and Snuggies, it’s a statement to just leave the house. But leave the house we must, because this is our last best shot for a long time to get the sort of serious health care reform that would make the United States the envy of several African nations.

    And read the comments.

    I just had a bacon, arugula and (garden ripened) tomato sandwich on wheat toast with mayo.

    OMFG. I had to make a second one….

    The dadgum Chefs are on the verge of knockin’ me outta the office ‘last man standing’ pool.

    I took Baltimore this week, thinkin’ the Chief’s offensive line would leak bad enough to give Baltimore beaucoux field position. Ergo, Ravens touchdowns would flow like wine at an Italian Bacchus festival.

    I did not, however, count on the KC Chiefs actually fighting for a win. They just might pull out a huge HUGE road win up the coast today.

    Well what the heck, it’s just money. Go Chiefs!!

    wicked – I like Bill Maher – even when he goes a little over-the-top for my taste. But in this instance, he is correct. We do need Obama to start kicking some Republican asses – and there are plenty of fat asses with even fatter mouths so Obama won’t have any problem finding a good spot to kick.

    I only hope Obama is wearing some spiked shoes when he is doing it.

    I’m tired of playing nice with Republicans – they need a taste of their own venom for awhile.

    Even Joe Wilson is now starting to look like a hero and that he is somehow the ‘victim’.

    Give me a damn break.
