  1. Hopefully the FBI was listening to the conversation where my buddy and I were planning the Vegas trip as opposed to the later one where we recounted all the happenings that should have stayed in Vegas.

  2. Great; in 2002 the FBI must have listened to all the whiny messages I left my ex-girlfriend after she dumped me. Fuck.

    So the people of Southern California, who usually love to brag about how it’s always warm and sunny there, are complaining about a little rain? Speaking from the East Coast, where we’ve been getting a major day-long rain or snow pretty much once a week or more ever since last May, they should just deal with what’s a perfectly normally, common phenomenon most everywhere else in the world. Stop whining, and stop building in places prone to mudslides.

  3. “Martha Coakley has run the most malicious campaign Bay State voters have ever seen, and her last-minute reliance on John Kerry’s 2004 failed strategy (blah blah snipped)’ Brown campaign manager Beth Lindstrom said.

    Two words: Swift. Boat.

  4. [re=496659]ella[/re]: Brown has apparently misspelled “inept” as “malicious”. For the most malicious campaign, the man who has worked with teabaggers who sent death threats to his opponent and later claimed he had never even heard of the teabaggers, and laughed when supporters called Democrats Nazis and made the curling iron suggestion below might want to look in the mirror.

  5. Oh Goodie! My predictions: Glenn Beck: “Isn’t it interesting that ugly male-hating baby-aborting liberal feminist women have brutally overtaken men, at the expense of hard-working, blue-collar, Jeebus-loving, patriotic, real merikun, tough-as-nails men? Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that all this happened after the liberal Democrat and their activist anti-American traitors on the Supreme Court feminists pushed their atheist liberal anti-American agenda when they mandated legalized on-demand abortion? Against our faith-based love in Jeebus? I’m just saying, and I’m the only one who will tell you, that Jeebus rules, and pagans suck abortion titty. Help me help you take back our freedoms to oppress everyone who’s not one of us…”

    Pat Robertson: “In the name of Jeebus, I say unto you liberal feminists, repent and accept the authoriti of your husbands and Jeebus or STFU and GTFO and stop oppressing our freedoms to oppress you! Bring back witch burning also.”

    Teabaggers (gathering in DC, orchestrated by Rep. Bachmann and egged on by ex-gov. and ex-VP candidate Palin, and well-paid, well-educated, highly intelligent female Fox talking heads who act dumb): “Wimmins now oppress men and blacks (Will Smith?) with their gay commie pinko liberal feministing agenda! We want our dominance back!!!”

    GOP politicos: Democrat women, look, Sarah Palin shiny, who so does not earn 100 times that of her guy Todd, shown here without a shirt, for some reason. Look at Todd, womens, you are getting very sleepy.

  6. “Historically, marriage was the surest route to financial security for women. Nowadays it’s men who are increasingly getting the biggest economic boost from tying the knot, according to a new analysis of census data.”

    And they wonder why the gayz are wanting to get married…

    The divorce, however, is a different story altogether.

    (rim shot)

    Did I mention I’m writing for Conan now? Finally got my sweet job in teevee!

  8. The State Department will now be ceded over to become a diplomatic corps composed entirely of Type A Amazon/Boudicca analysts, making low six figures, while this will free up the menfolk to become Air Force drone pilots (“most of the time, I get to fight the war, and go home and see the wife and kids at night”) at reduced marginal pay, since they have the “special spacial coodination” skills and likey the video games.

    From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs, also.

  9. The records seen by The Post do not reveal the identities of the people whose phone call records were gathered, but FBI officials said they thought that nearly all of the requests involved terrorism investigations.

    Oh, well that’s okay then, since the FBI said so. And if you can’t trust the people who broke the law in the first place, who can you trust?
