"The Patriots Got a Lot of Points, Too, But They Lost"

I'm an unmitigated political junkie, which is likely an indicator of a whole range of deep-rooted psychological issues. But if more political discourse was like this, I'd have a lot of company in my lunacy.

If more political discourse was like that, George Will would dive off the roof of the Heritage Foundation.

Greg said...

The Heritage Foundation doesn't have a roof, per se. It occupies the 5th floor at 214 Mass ave. Also in the same building are: the American Legislative Exchange Council, Amway International, Hanns Seidel Foundation (they rock!), Henry T Gallagher Law Offices, Policy Review Magazine (they totally rock!), Talk Radio Network, Town Hall, Inc and the Washington International Studies Council.

rob said...

he'd dive through the acoustical paneling, then. i can tell you from experience that's a good way to a) hurt yourself and b) make a tremendous mess.

Geoff said...

The building has their name on the front of it... He'll know where to jump from, even if he has to consult the Sports Machine.

Zoltan said...

Speaking of George Will, he's been on a tear lately. Go read his recent archives on the Washington Post website.

Alaska is like the Road Warrior with snow. Michael Vick is like "Why am I in jail?" A black man wants to kill a dog and it's a crime. Great stuff.

warren buffet just put $5b into goldman sachs. what does he know that the bailout-frantic in washington don't? or, what does he know that the bailout-frantic on wall street are hoping we don't find out?

Marlin said...

Given Buffet's ties to Goldman's chairman, I would say he know a lot more than most.

That being said, the deal is structured to protect BH. The preferred shares remain steady even if Goldman shares fall.

Based on the the current stockprice BH is already showing a $240M profit.

Whitney said...

I was getting really pissed that Buffett had enough money to do this while he's upping ticket prices to $90 at Nissan Pavilion and the like . . . then Jim called and explained it to me. My bad.

Zoltan said...

At what point does Warren Buffet become just a crazy old man who hoards silver?

Rhymenocerous said...

Apparently, there's a female anchor on SportsCenter. Her name is Sage Steele.

(insert Vivid Video joke here)

Geoff said...

Sage Steele was a local anchor here in our nation's capital until being scooped up by TWWL. Vivid Vids rejected her when they realized that she has the identical upper body to Alex Joyner.

Marlin said...

She is just working in Bristol until she saves up enough for implants.

Geoff said...

So is Joyner.

Marlin said...

Whatever man, I could totally be a male stripper, man. I'd be, like, huge in subsaharan Africa, man... and Thailand. Man.
/End Joyner Voice - Resume Marlin voice.

Boo yah.

Zoltan said...

I've seen Marlin do the Joyner voice in his Marlin voice. It's priceless unintentional comedy overlaying intentional comedy.

Sisler said...

I, too, remember the Marlinized Joyner voice. It's safe to say that Marlin got more good mileage out of the Joyner voice than Joyner did.

Geoff said...

Similarly, Greg screaming "Boo, I'm Marlin. Outta my way!" is enjoyable intentional comedy.

TJ said...

Marlin's "Fish Sticks" during NHL '95 was always a winner.

TJ said...

Well, O'Hare airport, and Chicago weather in general, I hate you so very very much...if this plane doesn't take off soon I fear some of my fellow passengers might kill somone. And I might help.

Rhymenocerous said...

For the record, Mets first baseman Charlie Thin is having some kinda second half. He just crushed a grand salami off of Carlos Zambrano. That gives him 38 taters and 114 RBIs for the year. I wonder if he went to Kirk Radomski for some help. He may end up making a run at 500 HRs despite looking like he had nothing in the tank through June.

Marlin said...

Marlin's favorite was Zoltan, channeling Carles, doing the Marlin voice. Sure sure.

And now I sound like Bob Dole.

rob said...

i tried to pull the same move john mccain's attempting with a college professor, only she saw right through my lame 'dog ate my homework' excuse. i'll give the old dude credit for some brass ones, though.

Whitney said...

I convinced a British professor of English that I went insane (and got better) during the course of one semester. Raised my F to a C.

And then I stole his identity at the Cape Fear 7's rubgy tournament and told everyone I was a British professor of English at the College of William & Mary, which enabled me to lure some co-ed to the beach. Take that, limey.

Rock on, McCain. America loves bullshitters.

rob said...

it is a given that whitney possesses a much larger gift for bullshit than do i.

bump, set...

Example 943 of Hollywood's never-ending quest to destroy everything I loved as a child:

Where the Wild Things Are, the movie, will be coming out in the Fall of 2009. Starring James Gandolfini, Catherine Keener and Paul Dano. Naturally.

Other examples of Hollywoood's never-ending quest to destroy everything I remembered (but maybe didn't love) as a child:

The A-Team movie is coming out in 2009. It stars Bruce Willis, Woody Harrelson and, get ready for this, Ice Cube as BA Baracus.

GI Joe: Rise of Cobra is also coming out in 2009. There is a huge cast for this.

My prediction for A-Team and GI Joe: shit sandwiches.

rob said...

willis as hannibal or face?

woody as murdock, i assume.

i could be convinced to go see that. i loved the a-team. i think.
