Old Stuff I Meant To Post But Forgot (Plus Balloons, Cause Everybody Like Balloons)

1. John Murtha is dead. Good. I thank him for his service as a Marine during the first half of his life but I curse him for his corruption in Congress and his despicable attacks on his fellow-Marines these past few years. Let’s hope his seat goes to a better person, which really shouldn’t be that hard.

2. Five Superbowl commercials that emasculate men. Eh, what else is new. TV shows and commercials have been doing this for years. I’m not sure who they are selling these products to. I don’t think it is men. When I saw them I kind of zoned-out a bit so they didn’t sell anything to me. Maybe the women like them, although loving wife was kind of annoyed that Dove was selling stuff for men. She considered that a sacred woman’s brand.

3. Would any woman alive actually want one of these Vermont Teddy Bears for Valentine’s Day? I think not. Oh I’m sure they sell more than a few to gullible guys who find their strip-music commercials provocative instead of annoying like I do, but I doubt any woman really thinks, “Hey, that’s what I want, a Vermont Teddy Bear.”

4. Miss me yet? More than you know, Mr. President, more than you know.

5. What about that Superbowl? Congrats to the Saints, but I lost a bet backing Manning.

6. Speaking of the Superbowl and Superbowl commercials. Is it just me or do you think Tim Tebow’s mother is kind of a babe?

7. Personal observation: If I were single and about to propose to my girlfriend I would NEVER GO TO JARED.

8. Barack Obama channels Spinal Tap. The guy is an egotistical idiot.

H/T to Theo for the balloons.



  1. I had a Vermont Teddy Bear, some time back, but right after 9/11, I donated it for children who had lost a parent in the terrorist attacks. Teddy was a gift, but no costume, unless a light blue ribbon around the neck counted as a costume.

    In general, I love stuffed animals and sleep with one, every night Bruce does not mind, is not threatened, and when he has trouble sleeping while I’m away, he sleeps with his own Bear. So there. The plushier they are, the better I like ’em.

    By the way–about those Super Bowl ads? NOW, or some woman from another such organization, couldn’t just shut up and sit down, when the Tebow ad proved to be utterly innocuous. No, she had to express her dismay at the way it had promoted violence against women. Funny, tho’, she forgot to protest the Mars bar ad, in which Betty White got tackled, or the one in which a guy tossed his wife out of the car in favor of a set of tires.

  2. By the way, I heard that Murtha’s district could be winnable for a conservative. That would be cool…if we picked up a seat in the House, too.

    And, yes, Mr. President, I miss you. Even WJC is starting to look like a better President.

  3. The bears may be good quality, but the commercial is horrid.

  4. I would rather get a big box of chocolate, thank you very much.

    I find it hard to mourn Murtha’s passing. I know far too many people over in PA who have kissed that man’s arse.
