Brokeback Post

Harvey from Bad Example has a listing of all the new words/phrases that can use 'Brokeback' to precede them. I'm brokeback sure that I'm never going to brokeback use these brokeback phrases.

Frankly, I think Harvey needs to brokeback himself for subjecting us to this kind of brokeback crap. Now excuse me as I have to walk my brokeback puggle.

Evil Glenn's New Horizons

(A Filthy Lie)

File this under weird: My phone rings last night at about 11:30 P.M. It's NASA administrator Michael Griffin. He wants to know why some guy named Glenn Reynolds has sent him threatening messages concerning the New Horizons spacecraft.

Of course, I have no idea what Evil Glenn wants with a piano sized probe that is filled with... 24 pounds of plutonium!!

Hang on a second... How did he get my phone number? Why was he calling me?

"I Googled 'Glenn Reynolds' and you were on the list."

"Not the first, not second... I'm not even on the first page. Something is fishy here. But I digress, the point is that Evil Glenn is obviously after the plutonium!"

"He wants to build a bomb?"

"That's not like Glenn. My guess is that he will use it to power something far more sinister. Something like..."



"How do we stop him?"

"The only way I know to stop Glenn Reynolds is with Techno Music. He can't stand the stuff."

"We'll do it! Thank you Sean!"

"No problem. And Mike, lose my number."

Told you it was weird.

Speaking of Regents

I'm going to try and get an interview set up with Nate Waugh, candidate for Regent, in the near future. I think one of the questions I'll ask is how he feels about this:
The presidents of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the University of Nevada, Reno signed a letter this week encouraging a compromise calling for entering university students to have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher by fall 2008, a year later than the current proposal would require.
3.0 GPA? You mean you want our kids to be smart when they get into college? What a concept.

I think the sooner they enact these standards, the better. Why should we admit kids into a college if they aren't willing to put in the effort to get there? If any of my tax dollars are going toward funding these schools of "higher learning", they shouldn't be wasted on someone who is not going to put full effort into achieving a degree.
Minority leaders, worried the proposal would decrease the number of students of color on campus, have asked regents not to implement the standards.
Of course. What was I thinking?

If anyone puts any weight in this statement, they are an idiot. Black people, Hispanic people, and any other 'student of color' has the ability to make a 3.0 GPA. Don't let these self-defeatists tell you otherwise. They want to keep you from achieving your full potential by saying that it's 'okay' to be mediocre.

These standards will be good for the schools and good for the students. This will ensure that everyone who attends UNLV or UNR is someone who wants to be there.

To Senator Reid: Open Mouth, Insert Foot.

Do we have to continue to accept Harry Reid's apologies? So far he has apologized to Republican senators for misusing his 'war room'. Now it appears that he has managed to gain the ire of a Italian-American group, the Columbus Citizens Foundation of New York City.

How? By opening his mouth.
"Having Senator Santorum talk about reform is like having John Gotti talk about doing something about organized crime," Reid said.
Santorum... isn't that name Italian?
"Senator Reid's callous comment is shocking, unjust and inappropriate since it invokes the specter of organized crime in a criticism of an Italian-American," foundation president Louis Tallarini said.

"On behalf of the Columbus Citizens Foundation and the estimated 26 million Italian-American citizens of this country, we demand an apology from Senator Reid."
Okay, so it might be a little over the top. I doubt that Reid's intention was to relate Santorum to the mafia, but it goes to show that in this war of words that the Liberal left has started, all is fair game. In a way, it's kinda funny.

Louis Tallarini: What do you mean I'm funny?

Me: It's funny, you know. It's a good story, it's funny, you're a funny guy.
[laughs]

Louis Tallarini: what do you mean, you mean the way I talk? What?

Me: It's just, you know. You're just funny, it's... funny, the way you tell the story and everything.

Louis Tallarini: [it becomes quiet] Funny how? What's funny about it?

Rick Santorum: Louis no, You got it all wrong.

Louis Tallarini: Oh, oh, Rick. He's a big boy, he knows what he said. What did ya say? Funny how?

Me: Jus...

Louis Tallarini: What?

Me: Just... ya know... you're funny.

Louis Tallarini: You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it's me, I'm a little f**ked up maybe, but I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to f**kin' amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?

Me: Just... you know, how you tell the story, what?

Louis Tallarini: No, no, I don't know, you said it. How do I know? You said I'm funny. How the f**k am I funny, what the f**k is so funny about me? Tell me, tell me what's funny!

Me: [long pause] Get the f**k out of here, Louis!

Louis Tallarini: [everyone laughs] Ya motherf**ker! I almost had him, I almost had him. Ya stuttering pr**k ya. Rick, was he shaking? I wonder about you sometimes, Sean. You may fold under questioning.

(My apologies to Goodfellas)

I'm picnicing at Basil's again!

Well Done Pittsburgh

My sincerest thanks for whooping the crap out of Denver. My Monday will be peaceful now, short of jokes aimed at a certain member of management who likes the Broncos.

This might make for a decent Superbowl. Pittsburgh vs. Seattle. That's right, I'm calling the NFC championship right now for the Seahawks. 27 to 7 with 10:30 left in the 3rd; it's a pretty safe bet.

Superbowl will be won by Pittsburgh. My crystal ball tells me so.

Very Interesting

Cruising though the R.J. today and I find an article about an 18-year-old kid who is running for the Nevada Board of Regents.
Nathaniel "Nate" Waugh is challenging Regent Linda Howard to represent District 1, which spans most of North Las Vegas.

"I've never run a political campaign outside of student council," said Waugh, in announcing his candidacy for the board that oversees the state's colleges and universities.
My curiosity peaked, I Google the kid and find his MySpace account. Regretfully, it is filled with childish ranting as so many MySpace accounts are prone to contain.

Nate, get rid of the MySpace account. If you want people to take you seriously, you need to stop with the kiddie stuff. The official campaign site isn't bad, but when the voting public goes in search of information, you don't want to look anything other than professional.
He said his campaign will focus on increasing the number of international students on Nevada campuses and dealing with growth.

"It's not a joke," he said. "It's not a civics project. We're in it to win. We're prepared to do everything."
I'm hoping to learn more about this guy as elections come closer, but as far as what his favorite pizza topping is, I am not interested.

UPDATE: The MySpace account has been cleaned up considerably. I also received an email from Nate thanking me for my interest. (Who knew that anyone actually read this thing...) As the campaign goes into full swing, I'll be providing updates to you, my loyal readers.

Maybe I'll even get an interview in. Stay tuned...

CSI: Glenn Reynolds

(A Filthy Lie)

Las Vegas, NV
10:32 A.M.
[INT. CSI -- FORENSIC AUTOPSY ROOM - DAY]

(DR. ROBBINS goes over the body with NICK and GRISSOM.)

NICK: What can you tell us?

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: Nothing you don't know. Trauma to the head with a blunt object. Overwhelmed him.

(Quick flashback to: In the alley, Evil Glenn hits hobo. Hard. End
of flashback. Resume to present.)

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: He got a mixture of sodium amytal in him.

NICK: A hypnotic.

(Quick flashback to: In the alley, hobo is out on the street. Evil Glenn is straddled across him as he forces the liquid down his throat. End of flashback. Resume to present.)

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: Allowed him to control him for up to six hours. Torture him. Look at the bruises.

(He points to the purple bruises on his face and neck. GRISSOM leans in to look.)

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: Purple means he was alive for all of it.

(Quick flashback to: In the alley, Reynolds strangles the hobo. End of flashback. Resume to present.)

NICK: Percussive control.

GRISSOM: He choked him unconscious and then brought him to multiple times. What about the DNA?

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: Same as the others. Indeterminate origin.

(DR. ROBBINS turns back to get the sample.)

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: I did find a small trace of something. Looks like the remnants of a puppy shake.

(He hands it over to NICK to look at.)

(Camera zooms in for a close up of the item. Brown substance with clumps of fur in it.)

GRISSOM: Are we done?

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: Something we didn't find with the other two hobos.

(DR. ROBBINS turns around and picks up a single strand of cotton fiber. He hands it to GRISSOM.)

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: Fibers. One in the back of his throat.

(Camera CGI POV close up of a fiber stuck in between two teeth. Flash to white. Resume GRISSOM.)

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: One stuck between his lower molars.

GRISSOM: This looks like wire. Maybe computer cable.

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: Hmmm.

(GRISSOM glances at the body, then back at the fiber.)

GRISSOM: Could be silencing them with ... monitor cords?

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: Well, it would explain why no one hears the victim's screams.

GRISSOM: He brings it with him and takes it away after. So, somewhere, there's evidence of this victim on a Macintosh.

DR. ALBERT ROBBINS: Kind of a forensic smoking gun.

GRISSOM: Mmm. Now we just have to find the guy and hope that he hasn't wiped his hard drive.

I'm Back

Wow, Pittsburgh was... well, an experience to say the least. There was this white stuff falling from the sky when I was headed out and the plane has to go get hit with a water cannon spraying some sort of funky ice-melting liquid. I don't know what that was all about but I'm sure it had something to do with Bush causing global warming. Heck, the antifreeze was probably provided by Halliburton.

I do know that it was because of me that Yahoo now shows Smooth Jazz in the top 10 stations on Launch. (How's that for inflating my ego?)

Lots of Gore

Al Gore, hugger of trees and inventor of the internet was quoted in today's USA today as saying, "A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government."

How's that Mr Ex-VP? Breaking the law like dodging the draft? Maybe by lying under oath? Sound like anyone you know? Maybe you should pay more attention to the scandals that rocked your former administration and focus on what to do about that.

Or as GOP spokesperson Tracey Schmitt (no relation) said, Gore's "incessant need to insert himself in the headline of the day is almost as glaring as his lack of understanding of the threats facing America."

Yeah, like Gore himself.

Just a Quick Note

I'm out of town on business but will be back blogging on Thursday.

Thanks to Steve the Pirate for letting me guest blog last weekend. Maybe he will do me the honor of guest blogging here when I take my vacation in March.

Evil Glenn's Dirty Rag

(A Filthy Lie)

I hate school fundraisers. Kids are coming to the door every other week during the school year to hawk candy bars, wrapping paper, sausage sticks, or worst of all, magazines. Really kids, if I want to subscribe to Time, I'll call them up myself. I don't need you blinking those big, sad puppydog eyes at me while begging for a year's subscription.

Yesterday I had some kid come to my door and he was selling just one magazine. I tried to tell him I wasn't interested but he forced his way in and proceeded to conduct a short spiel on how great this magazine was. It was not the typical magazine, you see. It was about Antarctic romps with avian friends. Pretty gross stuff. Especially the pictures. Finally I was able to force the kid out but not before he grabbed my blender and made an evil cackle.

I wonder who that kid was...

I wonder what happened to my neighbor's dog...

I wonder why I'm typing all of my internal dialogue...

INSTAPUNDO DELENDA EST!

Happy Birthday To...

ME! Yay! My wife bought me some new CD's. Nice jazz. Dave Koz (not Kos), Paul Jackson Jr., Mindi Abair, and Paul Brown. My present to myself is going to be avoiding the news as I don't want to be depressed today.

Smoooooth jazz and coffee. That's all I want.

Happy Birthday

Go wish Dr. Phat Tony a happy birthday. Tomorrow come back here and wish me the same.

Letter From the GOP on Alito

"Dear Sean:

In the last two days, Americans have seen the integrity and fair-mindedness of Judge Samuel Alito in his Supreme Court confirmation hearings. As expected, far-left groups and their allies in the Senate have unleashed their last-ditch attack strategy, attempting to smear Judge Alito with personal attacks, and peddling inaccuracies and distortions in the Judiciary Committee hearings. Don't let them get away with it - call and e-mail your Senators right now in support of Judge Alito's confirmation.

Senator John Ensign:
202-224-6244

Senator Harry Reid:
202-224-3542

Throughout the hearings, we have seen Democrat Senators from Ted Kennedy to Chuck Schumer to Patrick Leahy question Judge Alito's integrity, suggest that he would undermine this nation's commitment to one-man, one-vote, allow machine guns on the street, and make it easier for employers to discriminate. These baseless attacks are a disgrace to the process.

This is all part of a coordinated assault led by far-left attack groups like MoveOn.org, and it stops right here. The facts are these: Judge Alito is the most experienced nominee to the Court in three generations. He has received the American Bar Association's highest rating, and is supported by a solid 2-to-1 majority of Americans. To be confirmed, he needs one more thing: your help to set the record straight against shadowy groups who will stop at nothing to defeat him.

This is a critical moment. Please send your message to Senators today.

Sincerely,
Ken Mehlman
Chairman, Republican National Committee"

Dear Ken,

Please note that in the email you sent me, you put the name of both Senators from my state. I'm not sure if you noticed but one of them is the Senate Minority Leader. His name is Harry Reid. Maybe you haven't heard, but he is the head liberal in the country. As a matter of fact, I think he is the one researching and writing up all of the attacks used on Judge Alito.

Instead of asking Senator Reid to lay off the attacks, I decided to bash my head into a concrete wall as I decided it would be less painful.

Best of luck with the whole confirmation thing. I'm going to go get some stitches and an ice pack.

Thanks for writing,
SeanS

Slow News Day

We are all awaiting news about Ariel Sharon and the lone surviving miner from the Sago mine, Randal McCloy Jr. In the mean time, there is not much for me to report. So to keep you all busy, here is the MSDS (Material Data Safety Sheet) for water. Learn it well as there will be a quiz on it later.

Always remember to wear your eye goggles and lab coat when working with Dihydrogen Oxide. Aaaaaargh! I got it in my eyes!!!!

UPDATE: My apologies for misspelling Ariel Sharon's name. As you can tell it has been fixed. Thanks to everyone who made a huge deal about it. -SeenS (misspelled for your amusement)

Separation of What?

One of the favorite tools of the ACLU and other left-wing groups is the so-called 'establishment clause'. It is the first line in the first amendment and it reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof
No where does it say anything about 'separation of church and state', but many people like to spout it as if it is law. My question is, "where are those people now?"

However, it's not just the power of prayer that brings out the faithful. "There is," Las Vegas City Councilman Lawrence Weekly notes, "political power in the pulpit."

Whether it's bringing in a high-profile speaker such as Illinois Sen. Barack Obama or sending a message to get out and vote, West Las Vegas churches are not afraid to tread into political ground.
What's so wrong with telling people to go out and vote? Nothing, except the place in which they are doing it. There are better locations to spout political messages (yes, even if it is 'go vote') than a house of worship. The pulpit is to be used for one message only; a religious message.

This can't be a one way street. If you are keeping religion out of the state, keep the state out of religion.

Pot Calling Kettle: The Message is 'Black'

By now many of you know that a number of Republicans in congress received donations from Jack Abramoff, who recently pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to charges that included bribing members of Congress, defrauding American Indian tribal clients and evading taxes.. Representative Jon Porter wants the world to know that the GOP leaders aren't in it alone.

From the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

"Watching Democrats lambaste Republicans for their connections to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff has been a study in hypocrisy." Porter said in a statement.

"Many of these Democrats, including the very vocal Senate minority leader, have filled their campaign coffers with contributions from Abramoff and his clients." Porter said. "The focus should not be on partisan politics, but rather on addressing the greed and corruption that affects both sides of the aisle."
Makes sense to me. Most Washington lobbyists are out to get bipartisan support for their agenda so that votes will pass in congress. Don't tell this to Harry Reid or Shelley Berkley. Apparently the truth is a little too much for them to handle.

"If Jon Porter is concerned about corruption, he should look to his own party and their chosen leaders and stop attacking his colleagues in the Nevada delegation," Berkley said. "Instead of attacking me, his time would be better spent helping drain the swamp of corruption that congressional Republicans are drowning in."
In other words, "This is our scandal and if you aren't playing on our side, shut up." Apparently, if you are a Democrat, the money is magically legitimate. Sorry Shelley, we don't play that game. The world will be watching to see if you and Senator Reid have the integrity necessary to give back the contributions you received.

The corruption of our congress does fall on both sides of the hall. It is past time for us to look at the leadership in Washington under a microscope. Thanks to bloggers, we can get a clearer look without the media bias. Big brother, we are watching you.

Funny!

DPT found quite possibly the best blond joke EVER!

I'm still laughing!

Hey, Pat! Shut up!

Pat Robertson, televangelist and loud-mouth, has decided to label Ariel Sharon's condition as divine punishment.

"God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says `This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, `No, this is mine.'"
Pat's vengeful version of God is not the image I have. The bible does say that God gave Israel to the Jews, but this man has done nothing more than try and bring peace to a region plagued with the worst of 'holy' wars. Ariel Sharon is a righteous man and his actions show that.

Robertson may not be listening so much to God as to himself. I do not want to see Israel go to the Palestinians but you won't hear me saying that anyone who tries to make peace in that region by making a compromise is going to face the wrath of God. I'm not willing to put God in that position.

Pat, you don't know the will of God. Only He knows His will. Crediting Him with action or inaction according to what you think his will is only going to open doors for those looking for an excuse for their misfortune.

Trust me, God had nothing to do with those ugly ties you wear. That's your own fault.

Evil Glenn on the Silver Screen

(A Filthy Lie)

Daniel Craig is the new James Bond. That’s all well and good, but it means trying to find new Bond girls and more villains for 007 to fight. The creators have even gotten so desperate that they asked Glenn Reynolds to play the part of the villain in the next Bond film to follow ‘Casino Royale’. Being an avid Bond fan, I managed to get an advanced copy of the script. Here is an excerpt from the soon-to-be-released ‘Instapussy’:

Bond enters the hidden lair of Evil Glenn.

Bond: Good afternoon, Glenn. I’m here to make sure that your plans for internet domination are stopped.

Glenn: Oh, my. Commander Bond, can I offer you a drink? Puppy shake?

Bond: Vodka martini. Shaken, not stirred.

Glenn gives Bond his drink.

Glenn: So how do you propose to stop me Mr. Bond?

Bond: What do you mean?

Glenn: That drink you are enjoying? I have filled it with millions of my nanites. They have control of you now. Which means I have control of you! Muahahaha!

Bond: You’re insane.

Glenn: Really? Let’s have a little test. Odd-job, bring in the hobo!

Hobo comes in escorted by Harvey from Bad Example.

Harvey: My name is Harvey, not Odd-job.

Hobo: Hey, this ain’t the kitchen!

Glenn: Shut up, both of you! Bond! Shoot that hobo!

Bond struggles as his hand goes for his Walther PPK. He strains for his watch which has a mini-EMP device. He manages to activate it but the pulse knocks out the lights.

Glenn: Blast! I’ll have to run away now!

Bond chases after Glenn but arrives just in time to see him fly off in a little helicopter.

Bond: Goodness, everything about that man is little.

Nope.

I'm putting a stop to this right now. Say what you want about me, but if you start disrespecting other readers, I'll put an end to it. You want to play immature little games? Play them somewhere else. I don't have time for children who want to play politics and make whiny immature comments instead presenting solid, factual, intelligent arguments. I'm exercising my right of free speech here, not yours. My blog, my rules.

2006 arrived with a bang on the Las Vegas strip. The fireworks show lasted approximately 9 minutes and was choreographed to music from Las Vegas's past. Very impressive show. Still glad I wasn't stuck in that crowd.
