Happy Halloween '08

Due to outrageous demand, here is my famous -- or infamous! -- Halloween poem once again. Originally published 8 years ago:

O Mighty Demon!

Let I worship thee!
On thy hand and knee!
I worship thee!
O Mighty Demon!

O Mighty Red Devil!
With tail of thorn!
With beak of ivory!
With soul of Black Death!
I worship thee!
O Mighty Demon!

Can I interest anyone in some Halloween Nog?
A sprinkle of... nutmeg?
See you soon!

Also, a photo of Mr C in this year's costume:

100% Approved by All Doctors

I got this ad in some junk mail today, and I thought I'd share it. Some great bad grammar and lines; and wild photos of the elderly:

Elitism Defined

So, I am watching part of this interview Brian Williams did with John McCain and Sarah Palin for NBC News (the liberal media). So, S. Palin has been making the rounds to rallies and she's all talking about the elitists who love Obama and all this. So Brian Williams asked her what she considers an elitist to be. I just watched her response and then I figured I should rewind the TiVo recording of it and transcribe it for you:

Brian Williams: "Governor, what is an 'elite'? Who is a member of the 'elite'?"

Sarah Palin: "Oh, I guess just people who think that they're better than anyone else, and, uh, John McCain and I are so committed to serving every American, hardworking, middle-class Americans who are so desiring of this economy getting put back on the right track and winning these wars and America starting to reach her potential and that is opportunity and hope provided everyone equally. So anyone who thinks that they are, um, I guess, uh, better than anyone else, that's, that's my definition of elitism."

I think Webster's might be calling with a job offer soon!

And this is how she always talks. In gibberish; babbling, and inserting random, unconnected buzzwords and phrases.

Leave Nothing

I love this commercial. Have you seen it? It makes me briefly happy. I've seen it a couple of times during football games. The two guys are LaDainian Tomlinson and Troy Polamalu. The song is a remixed version of Ennio Morricone's "The Ecstasy of Gold" from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. I didn't realize until right now, when I Googled to find it, that it was directed by David Fincher...

Hardball, 10-16-08

I thought this was funny. I transcribed it here for you:

Jonathan Alter (Newsweek): Younger voters, historically they don't show up. They say, "well I meant to vote, but I had to go work out" -- "uh, you know, I had homework that night" -- whatever --

Chris Matthews: -- "I gotta check my email" --

Alter: -- yeah, "I gotta go on Facebook," whatever -- they don't show up. I think this year looks different...

Obama in 08

Ted is voting, my friends, for "that one." Remarkable.
