PICTURE OF CLIVE OWEN HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY OF THIS … IT’S JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR THE LADIES, PEOPLE

FITSNews – Jaunary 16, 2007 – Are Americans seriously considering getting rid of the Electoral College?

North Dakotans are, apparently. And lawmakers in 46 other states are set to offer legislation this year aimed at making the national popular vote the decider of who gets to be America’s “Decider-in-Chief.” Or in Shrub‘s case, “Deciderer-in-Chief.”

Quick, what’s the Capital of North Dakota? St. Pierre? Wait. That’s South Dakota.

WHO THE HELL ARE THESE GUYS?

Lost in all the fuss over Obamamania is the news that two Republicans will also be forming Presidential exploratory committees this week – Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter.

Who?

Exactly.

Here’s pretty much all you need to know about Tancredo and Hunter: Both are U.S. Congressmen. Both are right wing nut jobs. Both are seeking to capitalize on the fact that more than a few GOP Primary voters in Iowa and South Carolina don’t like Mexicans that much (a.k.a. the immigration issue). Oh, and both will probably put out whiny press releases when they aren’t allowed to participate in the Presidential debates. You know, with the candidates who actually have a chance.

Seriously, though, there just isn’t enough room on one stage for everybody who wants to be President.

Before you know it, you’ve got Ross Perot up there again, making crazy talk.

SOMEBODY BESIDES US JUST MADE BILL STERN THEIR BITCH, TOO

We don’t know who this Ron Brinson guy is, but he pretty much hit the nail on the head when it comes to why State Ports Authority Board Chairman Bill Stern is a f*cking idiot:

The Ports Authority now pursues its North Charleston terminal development plans under a long-standing mandate of state government. In the marketplace, it is years behind in the development needed to protect its market positions, the very positions that create a broad matrix of economic benefits for South Carolina.

Actually now that we looked, we do know who Ron Brinson is. He is the former executive assistant to the S.C. State Ports Authority director and retired Chief Executive of the Port of New Orleans. In other words, he’s somebody who knows a hell of a lot more about ports than Bill Stern. Which is true of anyone with a pulse. And most people without one, come to think of it.

Seriously, Stern needs to get something other than nothing out of his high-paid public relations army because we are basically kicking his ass all over the place despite a) not getting paid for it and b) not really even trying all that hard. Oh and Bill, you can’t stop us. We are like MJ against the zone defense, baby. You can only hope to contain us.

THE WAR ON DRUGS ISN’T WORKING?

FOX News had an interesting article yesterday about how America’s War on Drugs is, how should we put this, not really working. At all.

The latest manifestation of this private sector ass-whooping of government is the rise to prominence of a group called LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition). A coalition of current and former law enforcement officers who favor regulation of the drug trade, our bet is that LEAP has a little bit more in the way of street cred than the bongheads over at NORML.

Of course all we can say to this breaking news about America losing the drug war is “no sh*t.” We saw Traffic seven years ago when it came out, people.

STATE HOUSE BOUND?

Grab your scopes and clean out those barrels kids, word on the street is that Sic Willie is headed to the South Carolina State House tomorrow.

And while his new moustache probably won’t generate nearly the same commotion as the head-turning svelteness of the recently reduced State newspaper reporter Aaron Gould Sheinin, there’s no doubt some knees are going to get weak.

Of course it’s probably rage, not attraction, fueling the fluttering, but whatever.
