Meals, wheels and deals

Many people would argue that (Sarah) Palin did great ecological damage to Alaska and would like to do more by drilling all over it. So, getting her to host a show about the natural beauty of Alaska is a bit like getting Jeffrey Dahmer to host a cooking show for the Food Network. – Cenk Uygur, Huffington Post

In Denmark, they claim commercial incinerators burn trash so cleanly that many times more dioxin is released from home fireplaces and backyard barbecues. Ha. They’ll get my Webber when they pry it from my hot, scorched fingers.

Question: are those socialists who want to force me to buy health care insurance the same socialists who want me to pay for using the central sewer system? The bastards!

Bootleggers in Pakistan hide contraband in their cars. They stash booze in door panels and front bumpers. Suzuki Altos are the car of choice. In Tennessee, not so much.

We timed it. Last night’s hour-long episode of LOST! ran 53 commercials, which took up 24 minutes with only 36 minutes of actual island time. Commercial breaks can run as long as four minutes. One spot was for that expensive Lexus SUV that Toyota isn’t going to make any more.

Re: Palin and Alaska, yes, agreed, but did anyone notice that our man (and he *is* our man) in the White House is opening up offshore drilling?

Why? To appease some lawmakers and get their votes on other issues. Horse trading's still in style folks.

Maybe the Lexus commercial was a clue?

Re: LOST I thought it seemed like a lot of commercials. In one of the parallel universes the show lasted longer and we had to watch their commercials here in our universe. I hate when that happens.
