Lance Armstrong Does Not Speak For Everyone With Cancer

Politico, a formerly respected political publication that now gets by with nothing but left-wing hackery, published a story about alleged cheater Lance Armstrong, who fashions himself the spokesman for all people who have or have had cancer.  We get it, Lance, you only have one ball.  Now go back to riding a bike.

Anyway, in reaction to Rep. Steve King calling Obamacare a “malignant tumor,” Armstrong called that a “poor choice” of words.  The left-wing hacks at Politico even got the American Cancer Society to chime in, whose spokesman said Congressman King was trying to “capitalize on the fact, that he knows, that cancer is the most-feared disease by the American public.”

With All The Sh*t Going On, What’s Obama Doing?

Filling out his NCAA bracket (hat tip to Mike Flynn of Big Government):

Japan is suffering from a natural disaster that threatens to turn into an existential crisis. Colonel Q-ball has unleashed a blistering assault on pro-democracy rebel forces.  Large swaths of the Middle East are in turmoil. The federal government is bleeding red ink, with absolutely no end in site. The economy sucks and is getting battered by skyrocketing commodity prices and a volatile oil market. Near-record numbers of Americans are leaving the work force. If the world isn’t quite on fire…it is at least approaching a slow burn.

Keep Liberals Away From NASCAR

Some dumb U.S. Congresswoman appears with Elmo to support funding of Public Broadcasting, yet she wants to defund the military’s best recruiting program:

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Betty McCollum is offering an amendment to the House’s federal budget bill that would strip Army sponsorship of a NASCAR vehicle, saying that Republicans who want to tackle excess spending should look to the millions spent on racing.

But NASCAR backers say McCollum ignores the value of the dollar spent at NASCAR. According to Col. Derek W. Crotts, who manages the Army’s NASCAR marketing and advertising program, nearly one-third — 46,000 — of the 150,000 leads Army recruiters get each year come from motorsports events.

McCollum’s amendment, introduced Wednesday, would prevent the U.S. Army from spending $7 million on NASCAR and $5 million on drag racing in 2011 as well as millions more by the Air Force and Navy.

“Taxpayer-funded NASCAR race cars are an absurdity at a time when the Republican-Tea Party is cutting federal support for homeless veterans, law enforcement officers and firefighters. I know NASCAR fans are passionate and patriotic. This amendment gets the government out of NASCAR and gives them the opportunity to encourage the private sector to demonstrate its patriotism by donating a military sponsorship,” McCollum said in a release.

McCollum, who appeared with Muppet characters at a press conference Wednesday to push for continued funding of public broadcasting, argued that too much money is being spent by the government on racing. She noted that the tax deal reached between Republicans and President Obama at the end of 2010 grave breaks to track and facilities owners to fund capital projects at a cost of $40 million.

The NASCAR sponsorships are worth it. NPR and PBS aren’t.  DEFUND THEM, KEEP THE NASCAR SPONSORSHIPS.

Greg Gutfeld (and All of America) Thinks the Black-Eyed Peas Suck

On his program ‘Red Eye,’ Greg Gutfeld and his panel of guests mock just about every aspect of society.  It really is the best program on cable news.  Anyway, last night Gutfeld, during his nightly “Gregalogue,” said what we all were thinking after that horrendous halftime show during the Super Bowl:

So the Super Bowl came and went like a fat, sweaty, overbearing relative – and it left a stench in the bathroom that can only be described as the Black Eyed Peas.

Yes – once again we are suffocated by the American assumption that what is lapped up by teenage girls is also lapped up by everyone else over fourteen.

This scares the Bieber out of me.

Because it’s true. We are what we eat. And last night we ate a pile of crap.

Don’t get me wrong. The Peas aren’t that awful. Beneath the autotune, the plastic surgery, the nursery rhyme lyrics and the costumes designed for incontinent robots, there exists a modicum of talent that seems almost Barbie-esque. Fergie’s voice is captivating, in a “maybe I should hire her for my bachelor party” sort of way.

But here’s my problem: over the last twenty years we’ve mistaken spectacle for entertainment – that by adding more people, lights, sound effects, explosions and fog machines – we think this camouflages banality, when it only accentuates it.

The decline of civilization is only THAT MUCH louder.

Yeah, I know I sound like a stupid old man with a swollen prostate and a tiny lawn.

Greg is the sharpest and funniest pundit in the universe.  And if you disagree with me, you are worse than Hitler (inside joke for Red Eye fans).

My Obligatory “Congrats Green Bay Packers” Post

So I guess congratulations are in order for the Packers.  They played well, and if they were playing any other team, it would have been fun to watch.
