Eight plus minutes of truth

This early morning I could write about Rush Limbaugh again but those insurance companies that are not insolvent have mortality tables which say it’s likely we’ve got another 4 years, 1 month to make fun of Rush Limbaugh. So let’s pace ourselves. But here’s a bonus Star Wars-less photoshop.

Or I could write about the Obamas buying a swing set for the White House — with tire swing — no wonder Michael Scherer is so angry, if McCain had been elected he’d be swingin’ on that sucker right now with a beef rib caked in Kirkland brand dry rub in his mouth. Then he and his fellow enablers could belt out old Bachman Turner Overdrive numbers for their hero. Obama even had McCain over to the White House yesterday just to show him the thing and say, "Who’s got the tire swing now old man?!"

But ultimately, it’s the video above, and the Daily Show in general last night, that was the best thing about yesterday — they did a number on CNBC that will not soon be forgotten — and never mentioned by its target.



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 .
