My Blog Will Be Way More Popular After This Post

I was listening to NPR this morning and there was some discussion about the Philippine's Moral Islamic Liberation Front and a recent peace agreement that they had arrived at with President Arroyo. You can learn a lot about it by Googling "Filipino MILF".

Sleeping Problems?

Do you find yourself tossing and turning at night? Are you kept awake worrying about things you can't do anything about? Are you just too keyed up to get a good rest? Me too! Here's what did last night to remedy it:

  1. Chose a relaxing movie to watch before bed. My choice was "Narc."
  2. While watching the movie I snacked on chocolate covered espresso beans and washed it down with Diet Dr. Pepper.
  3. Sat quietly in bed waiting for my heart to explode.
  4. Slept like a baby*.
There you have it. Good luck and sweet dreams.

*A crack baby.

The Creepy Guy At The Gym

Dear Creepy Guy,

Just wanted to let you know that I REALLY don't need a spot. Seriously, I got it. If I need help I'll let you know. Actually, I won't. I'll let someone else know because you are totally creeping me out. You've asked me like 20 times and the only people who would do such a thing are stalkers and Super Christians and I don't have room for either in my life right now.

Also, if you could cut the chit-chat in the locker room, I'd really appreciate it. I do not like talking to other guys when I'm naked. Don't stand around waiting for me to take my head phones off either. That is not some sort of signal. I just can't change my shirt with my iPod on.

Another locker room issue I have is that you apparently don't realize that you can pass me by stepping to the other side of the bench. No need to brush by in your towel. If you do it again, I might freak out a little. Actually, I might freak out a lot.

Finally, eat a fucking Certs or something. You got salami breath real bad.

A Lesson Learned

If you are having coffee with a group of people and you notice that a woman has a cigar case in her purse, do not say, "Hey, you must really like the tobaccy. What kind of cigars do you smoke?" There is a good chance that she does not carry cigars in it.

So Long, Tim.

Tim Russert died today. Sunday mornings won't be the same. Here he is busting Cheney's balls:

Good times.

Last night should have finally brought the campaign to a close but Hillary has decided to hold out and not make a concession speech. I imagine she is holding out for some concession form the Obama campaign. I imagine it is something to do with carrying her agenda forward. I hope that whatever it is, she either gets it or gets over it soon. It's time to get on with the ass kicking we are going to give McCain.

If this is any indicator of the treatment McCain is going to get from the press in the months to come, this is going to be a fucking blowout.

Yes, those are FOX news correspondents making fun of Johnny "Geritol" McCain.

While I am in cocky swagger mode I'd like to add, "GO CUBS!"

I Went To College.

And I am sure my professors would be thrilled by this exchange I had today with a passing motorist:

Dude in truck: Nice hat, faggot! Cubs suck!

Me: Suck my ass!

Then I shot him the bird.

Maybe It's Just Me...

I really like The Arcade Fire. They are one of the 3 or 4 best bands from the last few years in my opinion. I stayed up late twice to watch them on both Austin City Limits and SNL. I even plan on going to see them the next time they are in town. With all that said, there is one problem I have with this group (not that they're Canadian) and it has to do with this song:

It's a great song but every time I hear it I get this song stuck in my head:

Is it just me?

You Get What You Pay For

I have been reviewing the "Free" listings on Craigslist lately. Here are a few things that could be yours for nothing:

ET Is Just Alright With Me...

The Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, the Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory, said that the vastness of the universe means it is possible there could be other forms of life outside Earth, even intelligent ones.

In an interview published Tuesday by Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Funes said that such a notion "doesn't contradict our faith" because aliens would still be God's creatures.

All my Catholic friends can openly enjoy fantasies of being abducted by little green men now that the Vatican has given the OK to believe in aliens. They just aren't allowed to enjoy what the little green men do to them.

Coo-coo for CUFI?

McCain's campaign has been making a lot of what they call an "endorsement" by Hamas for Obama. It was actually a comment by Ahmed Yousef that he liked Barack and then compared him to JFK. This is actually pretty old news but since it was brought up in a conversation I had yesterday with a person who is not a complete idiot, I thought I'd weigh in on one of my favorite McCain supporter/endorsers, John Hagee.

Hamas may be full of religious nuts but they are also the leading political party in the Palestinian Authority and believe that the Senator from Illinois has displayed the leadership needed to resolve issues in the mid-east. Even so, Obama has condemned them as a terrorist organization on a number of occasions. Not exactly courting their endorsement. Thus it is hard to believe that the beliefs of Hamas will have any bearing on the Senator's policies. The "endorsement" is nothing more than a strange comment on a radio show.

Hagee is a religious nut/televangelist who has lots of viewers here in the US. I assume a lot of those people vote and are probably in the conservative Republican camp. Those voters have been heavily courted by McCain and when he received Hagee's endorsement at a press conference his campaign organized, he seemed pretty pleased with it. Here's a little taste of the John Hagee we all know and love:

And some more stuff for those of you who can't get enough:

Apparently, Ezekiel and Joel were huge on petroleum economics and foreign policy.

And just in case you think Hagee is just a fat old man who spouts off to crazy people and not part of a dangerous organization like Hamas:

Maybe it's just me but I think that maybe John McCain ought to start condemning folks like this. Don't get me started about Pat Robertson (again).

Fear and Hatred in Milwaukee

Since coming to Milwaukee I have discovered a that there is a long standing feud between the citizens of Cream City and The Hog Butcher for the World. The problem is that nobody bothered to tell people in Chicago.

They fucking hate Chicago here. They blame us for everything from pollution to stealing all their talented young people and crowding their lakes with tourists. I was yelled at in the Pick-and-Save the other day while wearing my Cubs hat. A fella told me, "The fucking Cubs suck!" He had his kids with him. He was passing the hate down to another generation right there in the produce department. I imagined them eating apples later at a Klan rally and complaining that they were picked by a bunch of filthy Chicagoans.

While riding my bike the other day (again with my Cubs hat on) a guy in a truck pulled alongside me and yelled, "Where's your training wheels, pansy? Go back to Illinois!" it was right around the time you'd expect someone to get off work from the brewery so he was probably drunk but that hardly excuses his behavior.

I can't wait to get back to Chi-town and go back to ignoring Milwaukee and treating Wisconsin like Canada.

Can I Get A God Damn, America!?

I have been to a lot of different religious services in my life and have heard lots of crazy shit come out of the mouths of religious men and have not spoken out to condemn them. To prevent that from ever casting a cloud of suspicion over any future campaigns for elected office, I would like to set the record straight that I believe most of the stuff that comes out of the mouths of preachers is nutty bullshit. I don't think anybody is going to hell or that they will be buried up to their chins in shit for eternity.

Speaking of being buried in shit, isn't it time we all asked that Chris Wallace stop sullying the name of his father with his non-stop drivel? I am challenging Chris Wallace to be interviewed by this blog and am officially declaring my own "Wallace Watch!" Every second that passes without a response will be interpreted as cowardice by Chris and not as him disregarding a 2 bit blogger because he has something else to do. As a matter of fact, I'm putting all of Fox News on notice. It's an all out "Fox Watch" bitches!

I Can Be Silent No Longer

I am personally offended by Geraldine's comments and negative portrayal of African Americans. Shameful.
