Just when

Just when you thought the goat rodeo couldn't get any more interesting...
A goat loses its underwear durng the goat dressing event of the Liberty Stampede Rodeo in Devon, Pennsylvania, May 10, 2008. Philadelphia's gay community sought to dispel some sexual stereotypes when it held the city's first gay rodeo. About 50 contestants roped steers, cracked whips, and wrestled cattle to the ground during the weekend in an attempt to prove to themselves - and the rest of the world - that they are just as capable of tackling a traditionally macho sport as their straight counterparts.

WTF moment of the day

Gitmo Admiral: Detainees pretty much live in a fraternity house

Detainees released from the prison at Guantanamo Bay have complained about inhumane conditions there, but according to the admiral in charge, their living situation is "pretty much" like that in a fraternity house.

Rear Admiral Mark Buzby, who is completing a one-year assignment as the commander of the Joint Task Force Guantanamo recently held a conference call with defense bloggers to discuss the treatment of detainees.
Except that there are no keggers and the hazing violates the Geneva Convention, other than those small differences.... I wasn't in a fraternity, so I might be wrong.
Of course this begs the question: Just what fraternity was Admiral Buzby in?

You've seen the news

I'm not a praying person, but any of you who are, please say a few for Ted Kennedy.

I met Kennedy when I was four or five. I had gone to Washington for exams and surgery at Walter Reed. My dad was in the Air Force and had died when I was four and I got that good old government funded health care via survivor benefits.

Anyway, in one of my outings with my mother, we went to the Capitol. I was in a wheelchair. I guess we were in the rotunda, and Teddy came walking through. He saw yours truly, a pitiable little kid in a wheel chair, and came over to say hello. I knew he was somebody famous; I may have thought he was JFK. He spoke with my mother, then whisked me away to ride the senators' private elevator and go onto the floor of the senate. That's all.

He's done a lot for this country, but I remember him because he was good to me as a little kid and I wish him well.

Words of wisdom from the good Joe

Biden tells it like it is. (and is surprisingly concise)

Biden calls Bush comments 'bulls**t'

From CNN Congressional Producer Ted Barrett
Biden had some strong words for the president.

(CNN) — The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Joe Biden, D-Delaware, called President Bush’s comments accusing Sen. Barack Obama and other Democrats of wanting to appease terrorists "bulls**t” and said if the president disagrees so strongly with the idea of talking to Iran then he needs to fire his secretaries of State and Defense, both of whom Biden said have pushed to sit down with the Iranians.

“This is bullshit. This is malarkey. This is outrageous. Outrageous for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, sit in the Knesset…and make this kind of ridiculous statement,” Biden said angrily in a brief interview just off the Senate floor.

“He’s the guy who’s weakened us. He’s the guy that’s increased the number of terrorists in the world. His policies have produced this vulnerability the United States has. His intelligence community pointed that out not me. The NIE has pointed that out and what are you talking about, is he going to fire Condi Rice? Condi Rice has talked about the need to sit down. So his first two appeasers are Rice and Gates. I hope he comes home and does something.”

He quoted Gates saying Wednesday that we “need to figure out a way to develop some leverage and then sit down and talk with them.”
Put this out there.

The brown competitor wins. The female second-place competitor has to be put down after the race. Will Dr. Dean do the honors?

Auditions have been closed for the remake of "Some Like it Hot".

The casting director has found two actors who are even less convincing as women than Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon.
