The last morning buffet of 2009

All good things must come to an end, so dig in.

  • Joe Kines falls on his sword for Mike Sherman and announces his retirement.
  • John Chavis will answer all of your questions about his future employment once his agent gets things wrapped up.  If it’s a lucrative extension of his current contract, it’ll be all about the support and loyalty he’s felt all along in Baton Rouge.  If it’s a new job, it’ll be all about the challenge.
  • The Mike Leach-Texas Tech squabble has nothing on the Lingerie League.
  • Rupert Murdoch is a greedy swine, so no surprise to find him leading the way at ending free TV as we know it.
  • For the 147 people who watched it last night, the Humanitarian Bowl had a thrilling end to it.
  • Matt Hinton says the Holiday Bowl results will make Nebraska next year’s preseason version of this year’s Ole Miss squad.
  • Corch Meyers is telling recruits that “indefinite” means “until August”.

    Why should Rupert Murdoch be in business to lose money? For that matter, why is anyone in business to lose money?

    Don’t worry, Obama will buy up the TV networks and it will all be free.

      Dog, you and I are going to be the ones paying for this, not Obama. (What does he have to do with this, anyway?)

        You must have missed the memo, Senator. The ultimate goal of THE obama is to be directly involved in all aspects of the life of each of us.

          Here’s today’s response from:

          “The decade when the U.S. lost its way”
          By E.J. Dionne Jr.
          Thursday, December 31, 2009

          ‘Much of the contention surrounding Barack Obama’s presidency is simply a continuation of our argument over the effects of George W. Bush’s time in office.

          That is why Obama, despite his fervent wishes, has been unable to usher in a new period of consensus. Bush’s defenders know that Obama’s election represented a popular reaction against the consequences of the Bush presidency. Because Obama is both the anti-Bush and the leader of the post-Bush cleanup squad, his success would complete the rebuke. So the Bush camp — Karl Rove’s regular contributions to the Wall Street Journal’s opinion pages are emblematic — must stay on the attack.

          Domestically, Obama inherited an economic catastrophe. Dealing with the wreckage required a large expenditure of public funds that increased a deficit already bloated by President Bush’s decision to fight two wars and to cut taxes at the same time. Bush’s defenders, preferring to divert attention from this period of irresponsibility, act as if the world began on Jan. 20, 2009, by way of saddling Obama with the blame for everything that now ails us. But the previous eight years cannot be wished away.’

          Which brings us full circle to a tongue-in-cheek pre-inauguration pre-emptive ‘response’ to the steaming piles left for Obama to clean up:

          For the past eight years, we have worked hard, sometimes even on weekends, to do what we could to completely strip the country and part it out.

          For the most part, we have succeeded. All we are left with is a burnt out chassis that goes nowhere.

          We have honored the memory of President Nixon by letting Mr. Cheney and Mr. Rumsfeld do whatever they wanted.

          Some say this and my indifference have destroyed the Republican Party.

          We prefer to think of it as only a flesh wound that my brother Jeb will be able to heal by being the next President in 2012.

          There is no way anyone can fix what we have done to this country in four years.

          Who said we never had a plan?

            As I recall from my booklearning, the Congress is in charge of ALL budget items/approvals and oversight. Not saying there isn’t plenty of blame to go around, but the economy was doing pretty well until Pelosi took charge of the House after the 200 elections.

            The collective IQ of obama, pelosi, reid, the czars, biden, et al, is about 50. Either that, or they are the most sinister group ever placed on Earth with the evil intent of completely destroying the USA. I think it is some of both: they are idiots, and they care only about their power, nothing about this country’s future. Next year’s elections will be the most significant ever held.

              I presume you mean the 2008 elections, and not 200.

What a tool you are……I have NO political affilaition, I am an American, and I have a problem with those who aren’t, yet claim to be Americans. Your problem is, I am not blind at all, bad news for your type.

                  BTW, I am not saying you aren’t an American, I don’t know you. I was speaking about those who are tearing our country down deliberately. Many good Americans are simply naive about what is happening while they sleep.

                  My point is this is the year to Take America Back, and I don’t care if means electing 435 independent representatives, and 33 independent Senators. The party system has become our ruination and polorized the country.

    What is this country coming to when hot chicks cannot air out their beef online? After all, ‘accidental nudity’ is covered in the contract.

        It was a watermelon truck and I didn’t fall, somebody pushed. Anyhow, unlike a horse collar tackle, a thong-collar tackle is not a personal foul and is worth the price of pay for view. Either that or just go to the neighborhood strip bar.

    Does anyone still watch the networks? Perhaps if they go cable, they’ll get back to airing quality programming instead of “So You Think You Can Dance/Sing/Juggle With This Ex-Relevant Pop Culture Icon Who Can’t Get a Better Job Than This?”

    For Murdoch’s credit, only Fox has dramedys worth watching, and then NBC has Conan. That’s about it.

    I like how Tim Griffith gave the Aggies an extra four points in his article about Joe Kines, that’s almost as good as when Verne said that Florida led the all time series at the beginning of the broadcast of the old cocktail party.
