« Democratic Attempt to Make the Election a "Sure Thing" Thwarted Again | Main | When Obama is President: A Look Forward »

A Package of News Briefs and Overnight Thread (genghis)

Ace is a kind and benevolent Overlord (I have to say that or I get the hose…also I have to put on the lotion…but I’m a team player). At night he lets us out of the dreaded Tip Mine to breathe the free air for just a few moments. Of course every morning his minions (Dave & Laura) drive us back down there in order to supply him with fresh tips. And also souls.

Item #1: CNN Makes a Racist Attack on President Obama and Quickly Retracts Their Headline:

The original headline on CNN’s article Thursday morning was: “Obama in Position to Steal Virginia from GOP.” (emphasis mine) So, not just Virginia’s hubcaps, but the entire state? The original CNN post was screen-capped here.

CNN realized it’s oopsie soon enough and the headline now reads “Obama in Position to take Virginia from GOP.” It’s a little better, but still sorta’ menacing. By Friday morning, the headline will read “Obama in Position to Receive Virginia from the GOP, followed by a hearty man-hug.” And who doesn’t enjoy one of those?
Read it here.

(Just between you and me, that’s one of the weirder pics of President Obama I’ve ever seen…where’s the halo? Expect that to get replaced as well.)

Warning: This is a poke at CNN and their gaffe, not Obama. Do I need to remind you that you need to keep your comments under control? The Ban-hammer can be quite painful.

Item #2: The “Global War Against Doctors” continues in the U.K. court system.
From the U.K. Daily Mail we get this headline.

”Two NHS doctors 'plotted indiscriminate and wholesale murder in car bombings across Britain.”

Doctors of indeterminate religious origins, of course. Why do they hate us? After all, haven’t we always turned our heads and coughed when they asked us to?

Item #3: Woman Shot by Her Own Stove:

(note: this a local news digest, so scroll down a bit on the link, dumbasses)

”Sekiu, Clallam County: Woman's stove was packing heat A Sekiu woman says she was shot in the leg by her stove. Cory Davis told the Peninsula Daily News she had just stoked her cast-iron heating stove Sunday when she heard a loud bang and was struck in her left calf. Davis says a case of shotgun shells spilled about a month ago at her home and one must have landed in the newspapers she used to light the stove. She removed a metal fragment herself and was treated Monday at Forks Community Hospital.”
I know just how she feels. My bbq grill tried to attack me last week. Again, why do they hate us?

Linkishness though that's the whole story.

That said: You will not laugh! You will not cry…I will teach you! I will motivate you! Get up! Get on yer keyboards!

You call that a blog comment? Let me see your real blog comment!
