Dennis Miller took a sharp right and other stuff that happened while I was away.

Say It Ain’t So

So, at first I was outraged.  How dare you, radio station 103.nutjob! Lure me in with Dennis Miller and then sucker punch me with Michael Savage.  WTF.  Granted, I had only caught the tail end of Miller’s rant but he sounded like the same old left-wing ranter that he has always been. Hmm.  Maybe this is the rarest of all birds, an actual, honest-to-god UNbiased, not-leaning-either-which-way-just-letting-the-audience-think-for-themselves media outlet. HAL-lay-LU-yah!

Or not.

WJNT 103.9 FM, home of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and whose “News” tab sends you straight to FOX news, is now also the home of Dennis Miller.  It’s like seeing Jon Stewart wearing a PALIN 2012 (You betcha!) T-shirt.  Your first thought is, *snort*, Very funny Jon, now take it off.  Seriously. Take it off. Jon? Jon! JON TAKE IT OFF BEFORE IT EATS YOUR SOUL! Horcrux, dude, sheez.

ANYhoo. When I caught his next show, he constantly referred to “the left” as if it were a foreign country, not the place where he has made his home and fortune the past twenty-odd years. Decided to google ol’ Dennis and damned if he didn’t take a sharp right while I was studying.

So, what the hell else went haywire while I had my head in a book? Never mind.  I don’t want to know.

There’s a New Sheriff in Town

Some jackass in Madison had the audacity to point out that Jackson has more crime than Madison and that pissed off all of Jackson.  Fact is, crime is down in Jackson.  Last I heard something like 27%. Of course that could be attributed to the passing of Mayor Melton, as he spent more time in court than in office.  Either way, the hullabaloo over the ad got Mr. Buford T. Pusser 2012 enough free-press to pretty much assure his election.  Looks like there’s gonna be a new sheriff in town.

No thanks, I have a penguin…(mind lint – just pickin’)

Found out there are only two states in the nation that require a prescription for Sudafed.  One is Oregon.  Care to guess about the other?

You know that move you make when practicing baseball alone, where you toss the ball up in the air and swing at it as it fall back down? That move? Has a name.  A fungo.  Who knew?

Good news/bad news – the nightmare edition: Haley Barbour has decided not to run for president (score!)  Newt Gingrich waddled in to fill  the gap. Good to know misogyny is still safely represented in the GOP. Whew, that was a close one.

Osama Bin Laden is dead.  He’s already been spotted in Arkansas.

Mississippi is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Freedom Riders.  Jury is still out on the Nathan Bedford Forrest license plate.


Think I’ll sign up for some summer classes…
