Zoom Zoom, Boom Boom, Neptune

  • What I'm Watching/Listening To/Reading:
    • Mary Carey has come off as one of the heroines (no pun intended) on "Celebrity Rehab". She seems to be one of the people most affected (and hopefully helped long-term) by everything.
    • This is 8 minutes long, but well worth watching. Conan O'Brien, Jon Stewart, and Stephen Colbert have a gang fight and then the lovable but insane Mike Huckabee chastises them.
    • "The Soup" tonight made fun of some "rural" people from "WifeSwap". I realized while watching it that it's rather elitist for me, from the East Coast, to be watching Joel McHale, in L.A., make fun of someone from the middle of the country. I also realized that I'm very happy being a part of that elitism. Just another reason for Northern Secession.
  • Random Thoughts/Links:
    • Here's Romney's Florida speech where every man behind him looks like a serial killer. Especially the guy directly behind him with the weird smile.
    • Little-known hip-hop fact: Did you know that Pharrell Williams co-wrote "Rumpshaker"?
  • Daily Rant:
    • Leave it to our political system to screw up a perfect opportunity. There's a sitting President who everyone thinks is horrible and the country is excited to vote in someone new like never before. So what happens? One party nominates a candidate that the vocal part of the party seems to hate. They'd rather have a guy who, if he were in the other party, would get torn to shreds for being a flip-flopper. The other party has two candidates who nobody can agree on and they risk losing a generation through back-room dealings and disenfranchisement. It's a great election, but it could end very, very badly for a lot of people.

Shouldn't that be Coastal Secession?

I have to include blue states like Michican, Illinois, and Wisconsin, among others, while leaving out anything south of DC (maybe I'll take Northern VA), so "coastal" doesn't quite say enough.

you knew you'd get me by talking about Michigan, huh? :-P

I wouldn't exactly call Michigan a true "blue" state...

a Dem gov with a 32% approval rating (after 12 years of GOP out due to term limits);

a split state legislature (GOP Senate, Dem House);

2 Dem Senators;

9 of 15 GOP Representatives;

went for Kerry and Gore;

but I wouldn't be all that surprised if it went for McCain this time around...

even if you just want to look at the gov or last prez election, it's certainly not the "elitist blue" you're describing yourself as...
