Things just haven't been the same since the world discovered that the competitors are all made of botox, butt lifts, boob jobs, face lifts and skimpy bathing suits held up by scotch tape and someone's imagination.
Missouri, our neighbor to the north, is afflicted with the same Republican stupidity as the rest of the country. Republican Dave Spence, running for Governor, has a web page emblazoned with his biography, which extols his "Economics degree from Missouri University." But, wait, he left out a word, a rather important word, at that. His degree is actually in "HOME economics."
In his own defense, he chuckled, "I'll make fun of myself. I was a 60-watt bulb in a 100-watt society."
And, not a very original one, at that. How many votes will he get? Well, these days, one never knows.
Seth Waxman, who represents ABC television, appeared before the Supreme Court in a hearing concerning the FCC's indecency policy. As he addressed the court, he raised both arms to the friezes that surround the interior of the courtroom and intoned, "There's a bare buttock there and there's a bare buttock there, and there may be more that I haven't seen. But, frankly, I've never focused on it before." To which Antonin Scalia replied, "Me, neither."
Silly moves by silly governors. At one time, endeavoring to balance the state budget, Texas Governor Rick Perry proposed a new tax on strip clubs. A Utah state representative suggested saving $60 Million a year by abolishing the 12th grade. But, the one that boggles the mind is a proposal, in 2009. Arizona's looney Governor, Jan Brewer, signed off on a deal to sell off the state capitol, its legislative wings and several other state properties, including maximum security prisons. Now, she wants to buy the capitol and legislative wings back because it hasn't worked out as well to lease back the properties as she thought it would. Really????
