A Few Thoughts...
-- Okay, Barack is President. I'm pretty nervous about it. I mean, John Roberts muddles the Oath of Office, and President Barry's first action is the order to close Gitmo without a plan on where to move the bloodthirsty Islamists inside? Other than the lovefest parade and ceremony, this is not the way to start it off.
-- And if you think these people can be rehablitated or released. Uh... hello... they're terrorists. Not only that, but they've been stewing in Guantanamo for years becoming even more anti-American. The New York Times of all newspapers just ran a big article about a guy who was released and "rehabilitated". He went on to become an al Qaeda leader and kill Americans. Please tell me Obama is a subscriber.
-- The only angle CNN and ESPN played on January 20, was that he's an African-American. There are other angles to play. By constantly pointing this out, they are creating race divisions and alienating white people (some of whom are scared to death).
-- Also, just pointing this out. He's half white and was raised by white people... can't we get a little credit too? Sorry. I realize the significance, I do. It is a big step forward in many ways... but this ain't D'Shaundell Jackson from Atlanta getting sworn in...
-- We've got Lisa Leslie and Rick Fox on the phone... "Why did you go to Washington to witness the inauguration?" -- Countless ESPN spots on SportsCenter
-- Who the hell cares what they think?
-- The media gave Barack a free pass during the lovefest he called a campaign. I don't see that changing anytime soon. You'd think he's a cross between a rockstar and a messiah. For the next 4-8 years, you're going to see nothing but excuses and rosy coverage by CNN and company.
-- Hey, at least Barack is a White Sox fan, and not a gay Cubs fan. Man they suck.
-- The Rays made the World Series, The Cardinals are in the Super Bowl, and we have a black President. Whoa. Who saw that coming? What's next? The Columbus Blue Jackets win the Stanley Cup and India and Pakistan dissolve back into one country peacefully?
-- Front page of the New York Times tomorrow: "New study finds that global warming is having an inverse effect in hell"
-- The Kansas City Airport is the worst, most boring airport I've ever been to in
this great country. It looks like a giant egg carton turned upside down. You have to go back through security to access anything other than a vending machine (including restrooms) during a layover, and then your options are the CNBC store for candy and an $8.00 "City of Fountains" shot glass. Or you can spend your brutal layover at "Fountains of Seville", a crappy little bar with $11.00 quesadillas on the menu.
I walked for a quarter mile from the Midwest Airlines rectangle... I mean terminal... and all I found was a Starbucks. The "Tornado Shelter" signs don't exactly help the ambiance either.
That airport is a bigger embarrassment to KC than the bleepin' Royals. Any longer than two hours in that place is enough to make you want to hang yourself.
If anyone has been to a worse airport in a major U.S. city, please let me know. The city must have a population of 300,000 or more, or must have two pro sports teams.
-- I was in Wisconsin last week when windchills reached upwards of -20 degrees. They canceled school for two days. What ever happened to toughing it out? For Christ's sake, I have to hope for a bloody earthquake to get a day off school in California.
-- The Golden State Warriors need to start throwing games. This season a monumental disaster. They lost again last night to the Oklahoma City Rainclouds.
-- I bet OKC has a better airport than Kansas City
-- I went to a jazz club in Chicago called Andy's. Pretty sweet. Not gay Nordstrom piano background jazz-- it was like cool, upbeat stuff. Great place, and not in a scary South Side neighborhood either.
-- Chicago has Blackhawks fever. It's official. You know people love it when you get into a cab and the guy's got the game on. There is now a rennewed market for this product.
-- Speaking of cabbies. We got a racist one. This West African gentleman immediately turned Johnny Cash on when I got into his cab. What? Just because I'm a white guy with cowboy boots on means I like Johnny Cash? RACIST!
-- Ask Men's 99 most desireable women list is out. There were some pretty ugly errors. Namely #1. Eva Mendes is smoking hot, but she's not #1. Katherine Heigl is #80? Wacked out.
-- 24's episode on Monday reminded me of last season's. I know they have to set up a brand new storyline with almost an entirely new cast, but where the hell is the action, and where is Jack? DUDE. DON'T BLOW THIS.
-- Anyone want to know why 24 is so complicated and insane? I literally watched the opening credits twice and tallied 9 Executive Producers, 3 Producers, and 5 Co-Executive Producers.
-- Also... what's the difference between a Co-Executive Producer and multiple Executive Producers. Who's handing out these titles??? Wouldn't multiple Executive Producers make them Co-Executive Producers by default?
Anyone heard of two many cooks spoil the broth? Holy Lord!
-- Great job by 24's casting directors Debi Manwiller and Peggy Kennedy for not only hiring known leftist Janeane Garofalo, but thrusting her and and poor acting skills into a major supporting role. Every time I see this known anti-American bitch on my favorite show, I immediately become distracted and enraged. What a blunder!
Know your audience. Know your market. Terrible work on that one.
I have written two copies of the same letter to Debi and Peggy expressing my disappointment and detailing how disturbed I truly am by Garofalo on my show. I encourage you to do the same.

If you're not disgusted by Janeane Garofalo... read this quote of hers. She makes me legitimately ill...
"Our country is founded on a sham: our forefathers were slave-owning rich white guys who wanted it their way. So when I see the American flag, I go, 'Oh my God, you're insulting me.' That you can have a gay parade on Christopher Street in New York, with naked men and women on a float cheering, 'We're here, we're queer!' -- that's what makes my heart swell. Not the flag, but a gay naked man or woman burning the flag. I get choked up with pride."
I wonder if she voted for McCain... What a horrible, horrible, heinous human being.
