Halle FRIGGIN' luia!!!

Finally the Chicago football franchise, Bears of Little Brain, are showing something akin to horse-sense, if we can believe this.

Suffering through the Cowboys game last weekend, I couldn't get THAT mad at Rex for throwing a pick that was returned for a touchdown. The game was over by then. But the hangdog look on the face of the defense for the rest of the game was striking: their morale went down into the shitter, and the Cowgirls offensive line beat them like a red-headed mule for the rest of the game. Rex is an incompetent, and Lovie Smith's obstinate stand-by-your-man is bad for morale.

The Third Way

According to the transcript, bin Laden says there are two ways to end the war:

"The first is from our side, and it is to continue to escalate the killing and fighting against you."

The second is to do away with the American democratic system of government. "It has now become clear to you and the entire world the impotence of the democratic system and how it plays with the interests of the peoples and their blood by sacrificing soldiers and populations to achieve the interests of the major corporations."

Ah, but you are overlooking another way, Mr. bin Laden. The one where we smack you and your compadres around like a bitch for the next generation.
