1) For the past 60 days or so, the American media has been focusing (understandably/justifiably so) on the BP oil spill disaster. And, yes, folks, because of that, very few of us have been paying much attention to the fact that we're continuing to lose American soldiers in Afghanistan (89 in the last 2 1/2 months). While I don't always agree with Congressman Kucinich, on this particular topic, I concur with the fellow completely. In the famous words of Arnold Schwarzenegger, "It is time (to get the hell out) ......2) I always kind of liked Charles Krauthammer. Regardless, folks, of whether he was leaning to the left (his early backing of the Carter administration), or to the right (his stint as the hawkish contributor to the "New Republic", his time on that post-Agronsky news show), Mr. Krauthammer always came across as an intelligent and outside the box style analyst. Now, though - now that he's big-time Fox News pundit, the guy has basically transformed into this neocon dink. It's really quite pathetic, I think......3) Did anybody see O'Reilly tonight? Michele Bachman was on and, yes, folks, the woman was clearly expecting a big-easy go of it. Well, guess what. It didn't happen! Yeah, that's right, folks, Mr. O'Reilly actually supports the President's "shakedown" of BP - very much to Mrs. Bachman's wide chagrin......Let's just say that it was very enjoyable television......4) It has been brought to my attention that some clown from the Black Eyed Peas has decided to do a remix of "My Generation". Can you say @#@$#^&*$$&%#&#@#/no comment?
