  • The “Good Old Boy” Network

    Loads of news stations are now reporting on the outstanding r{e'}sum{e'} of the current FEMA director, Michael Brown. His r{e'}sum{e'} is outstanding – if you're a fan of Arabian Horses.

    So, am I the only who thought the mention of Steroid Use in Professional Sports was a wee bit out of place in the State of the Union address a few nights ago? I mean, I'm all for proper drug laws, and I think that should be a big pushing point for the President that […]
