Join The Circus Like You Wanted To

I don't know which is the bigger circus act this year, Michael Jackson's death or Sonia Sotomayor's Senate conformation hearings. In Michael Jackson's case you have these shocking facts being released:

1. The list of supposed drugs he took, up to fifty a day.

2. The revelation that one of the drugs he was taking was a skin bleacher. (Duuh, he was a white skinned black man.)

2. The number of needle wounds on his body.

3. He was starving himself. (Duuh, look at his brothers. His "thinness" was not normal.)

4. He was completely bald! (This should not be that big of a surprise. Again, look at his brothers, Jermaine has painted on hair and Randy shaves his head.

In the next clown car we have the Republican Senators who were grilling President Obama's Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor. Nothing like the image of a bunch of middle-aged, sanctimonious, white men playing politics to get my blood boiling. They are going to approve her but first they had to make sure they got their television air time by asking her "tough" questions and making stupid remarks. I'm talking to you Sen. Tom Coburn. That "You'll have lots of 'splainin' to do," remark doesn't necessarily make you a racist but it does make you a f'ing doofus.

You know, I've been a big supporter of gun control but now I think I will amend my views. Gun control for everyone except Republican politicians and pundits. That way they can keep shooting themselves in the feet.
