Looks like a guy with a periscope for an eye.It's going to be interesting to see what the Union Leader's endorsement will do for Newt. A lot of skeptics out there; how many will be turned, even a little, will be interesting to see.I see also GodZero's approval among among Jews is at 45%. How many constituencies can he lose?
(The Crypto Jew) I see also GodZero's approval among among Jews is at 45%. How many constituencies can he loseI don’t care, Obama is AWESOME!
I doubt Newtie is polling too well amongst the descendants of Abraham, but maybe that will change.I do expect a barrage of bad press now that he is the front runner.
Took the daughter back to the dorms tonight. She slept all of the last two days, practically. Guess it's better that she's sick at home vs. in the dorms. Not the Thanksgiving Break she wanted.
Not that I am perseverating about AA's post several weeks ago about a conspiracy theory, but I wonder if maybe I have it figured out.1) Tommy Thompson says he's going to run for Senate 20122) This causes Russ Feingold to decide that he's not going to run, since TT is generally well liked and would be a tough match up compared to lesser known Republicans. Feingold knows that another loss would be too difficult to recover from politically3) In reality, TT is NOT really going to run for the 2012 Senate seat. He is just giving the Dems a little head fake so their best candidates sit it out.4) This clears the way for a weaker (than TT) Republican candidate to run and defeat a marginal Dem candidate in Baldwin.
Tim Tebow is really giving John Elway a dilemma in Denver by winning the games that Denver must lose to get the high draft choice he needs to draft a real passing quarterback like himself and Andrew Luck.If Elway can only find some Florida cheerleaders who felt they were sexually harassed by Tebow, then maybe he can bench him.J. J. Watts was the star for Houston's defense today, as was Andy Dalton for Cincinnati's offense. It's like watching the Rose Bowl from 11 months ago.
In reality, TT is NOT really going to run for the 2012 Senate seat.Tim Tebow is running for the Senate?
The conspiracy theory is about something at the national level.
Meth people need to quit doing meth so that the rest of us can buy our Sudafed in peace.
Tim Tebow is running for the Senate?It certainly sounds like a good idea to me. He will never succeed as an NFL QB but he will certainly attract beaucoup votes from the religious right.
Meth has now been around long enough that everyone knows meth addicts end up looking like skanks pulled fresh from car accidents. Who wants that? Why would anyone try such a drug?"Here, try this. It will turn you into a pathetic addict. Also, it will make you ugly."Why do people go for that? Why?!
I don't follow football, but I know that Tebow was homeschooled. Therefore I'm on his side in whatever you're talking about.I kid, I kid.
I do love me some Tim Tebow!!Not that I think he is a good QB, but he is a good football player and person. He is totally up front with who he is. You can love him or hate him and he won't change.And yes, those qualities are the same thing that will carry him to the Senate in 2012, Madison Man.
I think the Tebow situation shows that sports media are incredibly biased and perfectly willing to be bigoted. His season so far (even prior to tonight's win) was better than Elway's initial season, and they thought he walked on water, even in that initial year. His play is debatable (the first half is a mess and he bails the team out late in the game, where a more seasoned player with a better supporting cast wouldn't be in the position to need the last minute dramatics), but the attention they pay to his overt religiosity is way beyond what is needed.Between this and the Penn State matter, I'd almost want to boycott ESPN. But here on Death Row in the Florida State Prison, our cable system doesn't give me any alternatives.
Freeman Hunt,Why do people go for that? Why?!You can totally clean your house in 15 minutes before you wreck it again in 30 - what's not to love?
Wally Kalbacken,I think the Tebow situation shows that sports media are incredibly biased and perfectly willing to be bigoted. His season so far (even prior to tonight's win) was better than Elway's initial season, and they thought he walked on water, even in that initial year.Hmmmm: ultra-religious quarterback who "walked on water" facing bigotry from the media? Am I missing something?
"I'm going to cry 96 tears."
Crack... I don't see Tebow as ultra religious at all. He just worships something other than himself and football. That simple act opens up possibilities for leadership that would be missing without it.Religious doctrines narrow a person until he becomes useless, but worshiping the living God expands a person's abilities to deal with reality. That is what Tebow demonstrates every time he cooly deals with tough game situations without interceptions like other Quarterbacks throw in desperation.
I'm sorry I polluted this thread with talk of a quarterback other than the very dominant and Great Aaron Rodgers.The number of teams who would rather have Tebow at the helm vs. Rodgers, all other things being equal, is a null set.
Tebow has a very good defense.If he'd been drafted by Bill Belichick, he'd be playing special teams and have a future.

Football is a game of extra effort and leadership makes a difference. He's opposite-world Brett Favre.
Bill Clinton is saying some nice things about Gingrich. This can only mean one thing, right?
Saw the new Muppet movie tonight. Loved it. So good. Taken back to the original feel of the Muppets, with great music, some of which was written by Bret McKenzie of The Flight of the Conchords. Great fun.
Tg,Crack... I don't see Tebow as ultra religious at all. He just worships something other than himself and football. That simple act opens up possibilities for leadership that would be missing without it.Don't get me wrong: I was merely commenting previously on the push-back he's received, not passing judgement. You're religious, so what you see is different from the rest. I mean, I see no point in "worshipping" anything - I only see danger and/or delusion in it - so he could be found to walk on water, literally, and it would make no difference to me. It's not like he's alone.I'm the one that's alone,...
I only see danger and/or delusion in it -Deleuzeanal thought is usually overrated by its proponents and often underestimated by its detractors.
Meth helps the hicks git 'er done, Miss Hunt--sort of official drug of NASCAR, country music, and baptist church (not to say many...cops). Crack does the same for urban gangstas.
This is the second day in a row, where the blog is running very, very slow. Anyone else having problems? It was almost unusable yesterday.
Who's Mark, and why should I ask him anything?

Internet Explorer. Why does that matter on certain days?
"Internet Explorer. Why does that matter on certain days?"Well, some days IE just feels 'not so fresh', knowhatimean?
Thanks, Pogo, it's all so clear to me now.
Ken Russell has died
Where are the Herman Cain accusers?(cue crickets).
Why do people go for that? Why?!Because, it starts out as your friend, then turns on you.
The man said Ken Russell has died.What's wrong with everybody? I want to see some wailing, hair pulling, and knashing of teeth.Jeez, must I explain everything,...? Oh yeah, I forgot:JESUS IS LORD!!!!!!(Sorry, Tg, but the old man deserved it,...he saw, both, the danger and delusion.)
I see a old woman with saggy teats crying wondering where shes gonna live...wv: phortinThe economy is in a phortin mess.
