Candidate for the Darwin Award? (OPEN THREAD)


Via the UK Sun:

A SEX-MAD Russian died after guzzling a bottle of Viagra pills to keep him going for a 12-hour orgy with two women pals.

The women had bet mechanic Sergey Tuganov £3,000 that he wouldn’t be able to satisfy them both non-stop for the half-day sex marathon.

But minutes after winning the wager, the randy 28-year-old dropped dead with a heart attack, revealed Moscow police.

One of the women, named only as Alina, said: “We called emergency services but it was too late, there was nothing they could do.”

Sounds like they “did” too much …

Think the Fairness Doctrine issue is dead now?


In spite of the 87-11 vote today on Jim DeMint’s amendment on the Fairness Doctrine, the issue is not over. Not by a long shot.

As our VP once infamously said, “gird your loins.” Don’t forget about this issue for a second – especially considering the Dems’ highly deceptive back door attempts at bringing it back under another name, and certainly don’t hesitate to let your Congressional reps in both the House and Senate – no matter whether they are Republican or Democrat – know how you feel about it.

A thought


The Chi-Tribune reminds its readers that President Obama, in his speech Tuesday night, told Americans that his admnistration had found $2 trillion in spending that they could “cut”:

Obama has suggested that the biggest building blocks of his deficit-reduction efforts will be increasing taxes on upper-income people, scaling back the Iraq War and making spending cuts that presumably will be specified when the budget comes out. He said in his speech to Congress on Tuesday that his administration had identified $2 trillion in trims.

The more I think about it, the more I’ve come to the conclusion that maybe in some weird way that it was best that Barack Obama got elected, because now he and other Democrats will get to see what it feels like to have to be the ones to tell people that their pet projects are going to have to be trimmed back or eliminated altogether, and then they’ll have to sit back and watch the yelling, infighting, and fingerpointing begin. On the other hand, unlike when a Republican president does things like that, the mainstream media will define Obama’s spending “trims” as “necessary cutbacks in a time of recession” whereas Republican reductions in future spending and in some cases outright cuts were and are usually characterized as “starving kids/hurting the homeless/hating the elderly” etc …

Can you tell I’m feeling extra cynical today?
