Another Repub for Obama

Heard Bill Weld, former Republican governor of our fair state, on the radio today endorsing Obama. It was a great Weldian quote, reminiscent of how truly likable he was before he got all weird: Running for another term, winning it, only to apply immediately for another gig, divorcing his world-class wife for what appeared to be a twinkie. You know. The usual.

Today's money quote: "I've had about as much fun with Republican orthodoxy as I can stand."

This was the same Weld who jumped into the not-very-clean-yet Charles to prove how clean it was. Forcing other, less charismatic and fun pols to follow suit, much to their chagrin. The one who used to declare his unambiguous affection for strong, amber liquids.

What a guy.

It makes you long for FOX

So TBS has managed to not air the first half hour of the Red Sox-Devil Rays game. Geez, good thing it's not important.

This is why post-season baseball should be on a real network. Maybe even (yipes!) FOX!

The reason: The hamsters on the wheel in Atlanta were on strike.

Good thing WRKO was online.

And yes, they're still the Devil Rays to some.

Levi Stubbs

Levi Stubbs has passed away at 72.

The Four Tops were the best of Motown. That group even made the words "Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch" sound really good.

A triple threat (to the ladies)

One fact stuck out from this labored report about South African leadership.
Jacob Zuma, the head of the African National Congress, is "a polygamist, widower and divorcee."

Oh, and he's been charged with rape.

Like a match to kerosene

How is it that our president (even the phrase "our president" brings shudders) manages to make matters worse when he reassures us? Everything this guy does is like a match to kerosene. So maybe he should just stop. Everything. Now.

He must be grading on a curve

CNN helpfully posted a report card after the vice presidential debates. Five pundits, some recognizable, did the grading. Some were partisan--is it really fair to have Paul Begala weighing in? That is SOOOO neutral. Of the five graders, only one, David Gergen, gave both Biden and Palin an A.

Way to keep your future career options open, Dave.

Cubs b-ball

Love to watch NL ball, which I don't do often.

Man, this Zambrano guy's gonna blow. It's like you can hear the tick,tick,tick as this rocky 2nd inning continues.

And guess who's on deck? Manny Ramirez, who appears to have remembered how to run out hits since moving to LA.

For the love of all things holy, please SHUT UP

Man, is it possible that the TBS baseball commentators are worse than the FOX doofuses? It can't be, but this guy Buck Martinez is setting verbal spew records.

Just because it can be said, doesn't mean it should be said. Ah, right, the mute button!
