Joe The Plumber

October 16, 2008

Joe Wurzelbacher.  He’s the bald guy on the right.  He says he’s a plumber in Ohio but he doesn’t have a license.  The name arose in last night’s presidential debate, but he won’t be heard of again after November 4th.  How soon we forget.


Hillary Just Says “No”

October 15, 2008

They were called ‘Yellow Dog Democrats’ because they were so ardent about their political party that they claimed they would vote for a yellow dog as long as they knew it was a Democrat.  I am a Dead Yellow Dog Anti-Hillary supporter, in that I will vote for a dead yellow dog as long as it’s not Hillary Clinton.  It has to do with her character.  Or lack thereof.  Yesterday was a day for celebration.  Saddled with tens of millions of dollars in campaign debt she told Fox News that the chances of her running for president again are near zero.  Let me hear an ‘AMEN.’  Keep her as far away from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. as possible.

Texas License Plates

October 13, 2008

The beautiful new Nissan 350Z.  Note the front.  And the grill.  And the license plate.  Wait — there’s no place to put a license plate.  But Texas law requires you to display two license plates, one in the front and one in the rear.  I guess you can just throw it on the dashboard, though that might prove perilous in an accident.

UT Bans Freedom of Signs

Every 4 years we have a leap year, Summer Olympics and a Presidential Election.  And college students want to express their (liberal) political views.  But doing so with signs in dorm windows is a no-no at almost every college campus.  So why is there an uproar at the University of Texas?  Because no one is complaining about the “Will Flash For Cash” sign in one window?
When using the link to The Daily Texan online, read the bottom post (which is actually the first post).  UT President William Powers Jr. has temporarily suspended the ban.
