Here it is, this week’s OpinionList:
Crist turns Democrat: Ex-Florida GOP Governor Charlie Crist turned Democrat……I love it when a Republican wakes up and smells the coffee.
Republican consultant admits voter suppression tactics: We know that voter suppression is a tactic used by Republicans to manipulate elections. However, one thing is to know it and another is to hear one of their own admit it, in public. We, Democrats, need to put a stop to voter suppression, since we obviously can’t count on Republicans to do so.
12/12/12: Kiam Moriya of Birmingham, Alabama turned 12 years old on December 12 at 12:12 p.m. This date is also the last chance to have a triple-number birthday in this century. The occurrence of so many 12′s on his birthday has turned Kiam into a bit of an internet sensation. I think that Kiam is adorable, and that this is a really cute story. What a nice way to go down in history.
Ikea monkey: I’m pretty sure that you’ve heard of Darwin, the adorable rhesus macaque who ran around the parking lot of an Ikea store in Toronto, wearing a coat and a diaper. I don’t have much to say, except that even monkeys like Ikea!
Susan Rice Withdraws: Although she is sure that she would get confirmed as Secretary of State, she feels that the process will be too lengthy and disruptive for the President’s second term. I’m thinking two things. The first is 1 point to McCain 0 to President Obama. The second thing is that, unfortunately, a very capable woman was successfully bullied by a GOP jackass who still hasn’t gotten over his 2008 Presidential election loss. Yes, I’m mad; and no, I’m not PMS’ing.
Mitt Romney robs bank?: No, just a robber wearing a Romney mask which makes me think that this thief has an excellent command of irony, or not.
Google Maps now in App Store: To the delight of countless number of users. I’m glad to see that Apple has put its customers above its rivalry with Google. I wonder if it’s hard for the company with the logo of a bitten apple to be eating crow.
McAfee feels secure in South Florida: A while back, I made up this joke that Florida is the penis-shaped state that attracts all the dicks. I usually use this joke in a political context when I’m referring to GOP members, like Allen West, for example. But it might be appropriate in this case as well. For weeks now, we have been hearing about McAfee’s escape from Belize, his deportation from Guatemala and, the latest, his efforts to bring his two girlfriends over to the U.S. Yes, two girlfriends. Let me put it this way, we now know more than we care to about a guy whose only legacy should have been the anti-virus program that he created.
Until next week,
