If I may ramble

I don’t know how you could possibly imagine this, but sometimes getting up at three in the morning to write something for this place can be difficult. Most mornings I have no idea what I’m going to post about. And after I’ve put something up, many of you may have the same general thought, that I have no idea what I am writing about. Sometimes inspiration comes more easily than others.

I was going to write that I didn’t watch the debate because I just don’t enjoy these things and how they are structured and analyzed. The whole point of debates now is to give some slobbering pundit a chance to tell me what I have just seen — and it all goes for naught, of course. During one debate in 2004 between Kerry & Bush, the one where they had no podium, Bush was nothing less than a staggering jackass…even more than usual — "Want some wood? he he he he he".

Yet he actually may have ended up winning that election. So no debate analysis from me. I believe both of them maintained bladder control. That may be an issue in debates later this year, but not this one.

So, I’ll just move on to the comedy that writes itself.

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas – especially if you’re the wife of a presidential candidate. Just ask Janet Huckabee, who attended a middleweight prize fight this past weekend in Las Vegas – where she stayed at the Hooters Casino Hotel.

I’ll leave the jokes to you.

Or perhaps you prefer, tragic comedy?

The Bush administration is pressing the opposition leaders who defeated Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf to allow the former general to retain his position, a move that Western diplomats and U.S. officials say could trigger the very turmoil the United States seeks to avoid.

Yes, because horrid, unpopular leaders have to stick together. So I guess Bush is trying to start wars, yet stop impeachment around the globe.

Now, that’s a legacy.

A Referendum Built On A Factoid



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
