Dews Tuesday Rundown...

Ok, just came across this from a LSWTF.com fan and had to share:


I can't tell you how much this screams Bethesda/Potomac/Kensington Maryland to me, but to those of you that have not been to our richest, most elite suburb of Washington DC, I can imagine you at least have an idea of the type of money and influence the area has...

Can't tell you how many cocktail/bbq parties I have attended there where someone gave me a drink order... But thats a whole 'nother story.

I'd like to add to the list something like "Fascination with small supposedly liberal states" too. We have tons of these damn suburbanites coming up north to go to UVM and smoke themselves stupid all the time.

I think Dewey said it best to me via chat "Judging by this blog, I'm not very white". Neither am I Dewey, neither am I!

Anyway... On to the other news of the day...

Things are getting ugly for the election, as well as the party's loyal followers:

According to cops, Ortiz, 28, stabbed Sean Shurelds last Thursday night in the kitchen of an Upper Providence Township home. According to a criminal complaint, a copy of which you'll find here, the 41-year-old Shurelds, an Obama supporter, told Ortiz that the Illinois senator was "trashing" Clinton (apparently in regard to recent primary and caucus results). Ortiz, a Clinton supporter, replied that "Obama was not a realist." While not exactly fighting words, the verbal political tiff led to some mutual choking and punching. And, allegedly, a stabbing in the abdomen.
Hey, at least they're getting into this election... Haven't seen this kind of "Election Fever" in a while!

Huckabee is quoted as saying the McCain story is "best thing that could happen" for McCain as a candidate.

He's no fool though, the Huckster is totally right on this. By finally running this story, the New York Times has given people like Rush Limbaugh an easy out on their stance against McCain for being "too liberal", since its a paper like the New York Times running it (aka Liberal War Machine to the Right Wing).

Not like it wasn't going to happen anyway, but this speeds up McCain's nomination and the Hucksters dropping out I'm guessing.


And finally to finish off, a new study on the effectiveness of anti-depressants was released pointing to little or no noticeable difference between clinical improvement over non-chemical options.

No, this is strictly a coincidence I'm sure. Nothing at all to do with profit margins...

I think, so far, all I have for me on this whiteness index is tea, Netflix, Wes Anderson movies, and a love of irony. I'd need to look this over again though. What's that make me, 5.3% white?

I have Tea, Sushi and maybe Irony...

I never ordered Netflix though, that was the other person who would be about 95-98% white at least.
