Did you watch the Super Bowl
? As I recall, the last time a bunch of people were stuck in the Superdome without power, it took several days to get them any help. Maybe if the Katrina victims had paid a thousand dollars a ticket they wouldn’t have had to wait so long.
The Superdome and the New Orleans power company seemed to blame Beyonce
for the power outage. That doesn’t make any sense. I watched the halftime show, and that girl was putting energy out, not sucking it in. The power company blamed “A piece of equipment that is designed to monitor electrical load” after Beyonce’s performance. Right. And I’m sure that wasn’t the only load inspired by that performance.
For years on Super Bowl commercials, Go Daddy has been exploiting attractive girls
to sell their service. I guess it was nice that this time they chose to also exploit an unattractive guy. Perhaps one day we will no longer judge people by the color of their skin OR the blotchiness of their skin.
The NRA is too much for Fox News! Chris Wallace shot down Wayne LaPierre
for being “ridiculous.” Wow. That’s like a pimp telling a whore to change her outfit into something a little more tasteful. Wallace challenged LaPierre over the NRA ad that attacked President Obama’s daughters for getting more security than the average person. Do you get the feeling that Chris Wallace really enjoys those rare moments he gets to confront someone who is crazier than Fox News is in general?
Finally, America’s top sniper from the Iraq war was shot to death
at a shooting range in Texas. What does it say about our society when you’re safer in a war zone than you are back home? This is the kind of story that should serve as a lesson, but in reality it will only serve to fuel bizarre conspiracy theories among the people who need the lesson the most.
