Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Scarlett Johansson allegedly had her phone "hacked" which caused some very revealing pics to be posted all over the Internet yesterday. (I'll leave that to you.) Her lawyer has threatened legal action against anyone who posts them in an effort to stop their Internet spread. After he made the threat, I suspect he asked someone, "how's that Internet thing work?"
  • Funny T. Boone Pickens quote I read: "Don't rush the monkey and you'll see a better show." I'll have to shoehorn that in sometime today.
  • The Wise County Tax Office was burglarized a day of so ago. Why? It's not like they keep bundles of tax money laying around. (Side note: Another burglary is notable simply because of the store's name: "Cushy Tooshie".)
  • If you tried to drive into Fort Worth this morning on 287, you may still be stuck in north Fort Worth.
  • Yeah, I saw the reports about the new tell-all book about Sarah Palin. Cocaine, an affair, and a one night stand with a college basketball star? Meh.
  • Seems like the power brokers in the Republican Party are beginning to believe Rick Perry would get exposed and killed by President Obama and that Mitt Romney has a better chance of winning the general election. They might be right. 
  • Had a table full of females at the dinner table look at me like I was crazy last night when I suggested what position a football player played (new boyfriend) based upon the number he wore. 
  • From the weekend, Auburn's War Eagle smashing into a luxury box. But like 'merica, he kept on going. 
  • I still hate the Family Cat, I just no longer hate the Family Cat more than I did the preceding week.
  • Google Flight Search is up and running. When they get something right, they really get it right. 
  • A Decatur kid joins the Texas Tech baseball team as a junior college transfer and gets profiled here.
  • Funny quote about how UT is at the heart of the probable break up of the Big 12 because of greed for The Longhorn Network: "They were like the fat kid at the buffet who had a full plate but whose eyes got big when he saw the all-you-can-eat pudding area."
  • My Eyes!!!: Nancy Grace without makeup.(Thanks, Keith)
  • Hadn't thought about the collapse of that bridge to Padre Island in, oh, about ten years.

And the rest of the Big 12, 11, 10, 9... are like the owners of the buffet who got together and voted to allow Texas to eat at the buffet and then piss and moan when he actually keeps eating. Name one other school that would have turned down that kind of offer?

The UT Fat Kids? I think I like the UT Pudding Boys as a nickname better. Or maybe the UT Buffet Hogs.

Another thing. Has anyone else noticed how much Rick Perry touches the other candidates during these dog-and-pony debate shows? A pat on the back, a hand on the shoulder, a grasped arm, a hug, etc. Just seems a little too touchy-feely. Strange.

Hey 8:50 How often does an all you can eat promotion at a restaurant get terminated because of the abuse, greed, and waste by a selfish few that ruin it for all, including ultimately themselves?

What happened on 287 in Rhome?

Without makeup Nancy Grace is as ugly as her personality. You weren't lying when you wrote, "My eyes!"

That Sarah Palin book might have been relevant (sort of) two years ago when she was governor of the 49th state. Now that she's a private citizen, I'm with you. Who gives a crap?

You could have stopped at "Had a table full of females at the dinner table look at me like I was crazy last night" and I would have understood.

Party establishments don't control the presidential primaries any more. The extreme wings of both parties seem to. WK may argue I'm wrong but he'll do some research to backstop himself so I can live with that. I'm too lazy.

That there's a struggle for control of the Republican Party between establishment Republicans and populist Republicans (i.e., Tea Partiers) is no secret. The establishment supported John McCain in '08, and we see how that turned out. After a century in office, engaging in roughhouse Texas politics, Perry has likely been vetted about as well as anyone around. The primaries will determine if he has what it takes to beat Obama. The danger is that the Republican nominee will be someone who manages to deflate the currently-energized Conservative base.

I am an old guy, and followed politics fairly carefully for a while. I remember the Carter fiasco quite well.

But even that poor executive effort looks a peach compared to our current situation. Even considering Carter, I have never seen Dems back away from an administration the way they are doing with this one.

And you can forget about any liberal Repub or independent support.


It is like Obama is the pilot of a jet that is plummeting to earth. All he has to do is pull back on the stick of regulation, taxes, government spending, etc, and the plane would right itself.

Instead, he seems hell bent on crashing the mother. Does not want anyone limping away.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

Its really simple.

1.) Texas got an offer to move to the PAC a couple of years ago.

2.) The Big 12 makes a run to keep Texas in the conference to maintain credibility. A deal is hatched giving bigger schools in Big 12 more of the shared revenue and UT the LHN.

3.) All the Big 12 schools agree to the new deal.

4.) aTm's inferiority complex nags at their pride so much that this year they recant on their agreement and decide to leave the Big 12 to get a way from Big Brother.

In other words, its all about money. Oh, and some schools getting butt hurt.

11:03 What in the blue-eyed blazes are you talking about? This president has made more offers to cut spending than any Democrat in history! He's bent over and kissed his own feet in efforts to reach a "compromise" ...ANY compromise ... with the Republicans. Hell, he's done everything but join the Republican party!

That's the problem with you Tea Party True Believers. Reality is too much of an inconvenience to interest you.

1130 - Given that Obama's two biggest "successes" were the $800 billion stimulus package and the $3 trillion healthcare legislation, it's pretty clear that "reality" doesn't enter into your brainpan.

"Funny T. Boone Pickens quote I read: "Don't rush the monkey and you'll see a better show." I'll have to shoehorn that in sometime today."

Counselor, will this be your response the next time a judge tells you that its time to "wrap this up?"

Gary the Graboid said...

I was going to say that 11:48 shot and scored but then I got to wondering if the whole electile disfunction concept was somehow related to BG's comments on the Chinese.

Exposed how? Like why His secretary of state Geoff Conner left suddenly?

Are you the new and improved drugs and alcohol guy?

The tell-all about Palin wouldn't be a big deal, except she won't go away and you just know she's waiting to jump in the race in some way. Also, she runs on the moral majority pro-life and pro-abstinence platform, which panders to a bunch of hillbillies, and although wordie likes to say the Tea Party has disavowed racism, we all know their legion of bumpkins won't abide by her whoring around with a black guy while engaged. Hopefully this will shut her up, but she has no shame and will manage to say the MSM is making a victim out of her.

That cannot possible Nancy Grace. No way. Holy crap she's almost as ugly on the outside as she is on the inside.

Rage,

How dare you presume to know what everyone else is thinking or believes? These are people that you are fundamentally opposed to, so how can you even begin to think that you understand them? Just like most libs, you believe that you are enlightened above the rest of us and that you can solve all of our problems if we would only do what you say. Regardless of your actions, we should just do as we are told and everything will work out.

"We all know..." - The phrase to let you know that what follows actually means "I'm about to say something incredibly stupid, and I don't have any facts to back it up, but I've never let that stop me." Sort of the Liberal Democrat version of "Hey y'all, watch this!"

Cushy Tooshie is a great store, I went in there earlier this week to get all the cloth diapering gear for my 3 month old. They have a great selection of everything for babies and mama's alike. Not just diapers but toys, feeding supplies, blankets and great gift items. Everthing appeared to be organic and made in the USA and nothing you could find at a big box store...prices were cheap as well.
