Is Resistance Futile?

I am part of exactly 187 households in the United States that does not have a gaming system. Let me clarify. I am one of the 187 households that doesn’t have one and never has. No Playstation, no Xbox, no original Nintendo, no Atari. I’ve never known the joys of obtaining the visual equivalent of an oral favor in a virtual back alley while playing Grand Theft Auto. Yes, there are more CPU’s in my house than there are mammals (4 humans, two cats). And a game can certainly be played on just about any of them. But no gaming system.

We visited Gramma over the Memorial Day weekend. She got a Wii. And my kids flipped out. There they were, hopping, swatting, swinging, punching… Not your average couch potato endeavor. And wifey has mentione the WiiFit thing that might help with my balance issues… Kids are clamoring. Should I give in?

Hillary Clinton: Asshat

I’ve got some major issues with the idea of pinching my nose and voting for McCain. And in the spirit of full disclosure, Obama just doesn’t mesh with my personal approach to politics. But Hillary has always struck me as a carpet-bagging, domineering, cackling shrew of bitterness. Hell, she’s almost single-handedly given the Democrats defeat by dragging this primary slug fest out until folks just wanna go and hide. And now, she really will not admit defeat and is STILL trying to figure out a way to get into the White House again. How’d you like to be the Obama half of the Obama/Clinton ticket?
