This is what’s been floating around in my head for the past week. I need to clear it out to make room for more.
There’s been a commercial running for weeks on comedy central from some show and it has a line that makes me laugh every single time (it’s from Dane Cook):
In the future, everything will be instant. But the DMV will still take like nine f***ing seconds!
The Ass was watching Cartoon Network the other night, and pointed out that they had just aired an anti-drug PSA right before a commercial for the new Seth Rogan comedy Pineapple Express. Talk about sending mixed messages!
Incidentally, why is it that I can enjoy a good stoner comedy without having the smallest desire to actually smoke pot? I’m an enigma.

Please oh please, let it be a hoax.
So Obama chose the guy who called bullshit – literally – on Bush? Awesome. Good choice. He’s a fighter.
My theory is that a secret deal was made with the Clintons, that Obama would choose a running mate who was older, too old to run in eight years, so that Hillary wouldn’t be running against the current VP. There’s not a huge age difference between them, but in eight years, Biden will be in his 70s, while Hillary will still be in her 60s.
Is John Edward’s political career done? With all the talk the last few days of potential running mates for Obama, I couldn’t help but feel a little sorry for him. I don’t really understand why. As far as I can tell he didn’t do anything illegal. It’s not like he was investigating illegal prostitution rings and then hiring illegal prostitutes (I’m looking at you, Spitzer), or charged with eight felonies while serving as mayor of Detroit (that’s you Kwame). He cheated on his wife. Which makes him a complete dick, a terrible husband. But I’m not convinced that we should be electing good human beings to office. Some of the best people I know would make terrible politicians. Unless we totally change the way that politicians are elected and what’s expected of them once they’re in office, we shouldn’t really expect politics to attract noble, honest, exceptional people. Even when they do manage to get elected, they don’t usually do well. That’s not how the system is set up.
Of course, I’m hoping against hope that Obama turns out to be the exception.
