[Please note: let the Olympics come to Boston/Lowell. Let them threaten to tear down some old dugout in Chelmsford. Allow them to entertain the notion of housing the athletes in Plaistow. Please? It’ll be nine solid years of material and they might even fix the Rourke Bridge for us ].

Lindsay Graham confirms that all too often, John Kerry’s flag is flying at half mast.

I watch football and news magazine shows, so I’m all to aware that a vast majority of men over a certain open-ended age threshold have trouble getting themselves…you know…game ready. But boner time is your time fellas. Let’s keep the colleagues and CNN microphones out of it.

That said, with two seasons of House of Cards under my belt, trying to imagine what Lindsay Graham has in store for Kerry’s awakening is bringing me to some pretty dark places.

Thanks to KPax for the link.

 You guys know that they’re talking about John Boehner (speaker of the house)…not a boner, right?  I mean are you that out of touch that you don’t know who the speaker of the house is?  Video Fail! Blog Fail!

This just in: Russians are still zany.

Vincent Van Gogh

Everyone knows that too much drinking can cause Christmas parties to go wrong. But few can have imagined the bloody outcome of a recent festive drinking binge in Siberia.

Police in the remote region said on Friday that they are struggling to work out whether self mutilation constitutes a crime after two men cut their own ears off in an arm wrestling match.

 

How much vodka would you need to cut your own ear off?  A whole bottle?  Two?  I mean OK guy has a gun to my wifes head and it’s cut my ear off or she dies where’s the knife?  But to lose a bet and then say “Oh shucks, I lost let me cut my ears off?”  Seriously Russians are freaking zany.  Full story here.

Dennis Rodman just went off the deep end right?!?

Is Charles Smith running for office?  I don’t know him or his politics but he seems like a guy who could do some good for people.  On the flip side Dennis Rodman seems like he’s gone off the cliff on live TV right?  What drug(s) was he on here?  Is Chris Cuomo serious?  Does he really think Kenneth Bay wants Dennis Rodman speaking on his behalf?  Why?  So he can get fed to the dogs like Kim Jong Un’s uncle?  Best TV CNN’s produced in YEARS.  Unintentional comedy to the nth degree.
