The 1st Annual "Nickname for Blagojevich" Contest

I'm hoping that Badclamovich stays in office, or at least in the political spotlight, for years to come, so that this contest will still make sense when Rick and Melissa's kid is in college. Oh, we'll still be doing it by then whether it makes sense or not, but it always helps to have some relevance behind an endeavor. Anyway, on Dennis Miller's radio show last night I heard that some local wiseacres in Chi-Town call the guv "Blowdryovich." Clever, working in the hair, there. As for me, my first official entry in the contest will be an obvious nickname that everyone seems to have missed (or are too polite to say in mainstream media), but it perfectly captures the brazen attitude of Not So Hot Rod: "Blowmeovich." Anyway, whoever comes up with the best nickname by the end of the year and sends me their address will receive something interesting in the mail. Of course, I'll also be judging this contest myself, and like our man Blogspotovich, I'm not above awarding the prize to myself...cuz it's a fucking valuable thing.

Shoe fly don't bother me

During his farewell visit to Iraq today, an Iraqi journalist took off his shoes one at a time and hurled them at Bush during a press conference.
Too bad they couldn't have been size 15 steel-toe boots.

"Get that f&*#ing Prof. No. 3!"

Did y'all read about the brewing scandal just south of St. Louis? Seems a college administrator wants to pursue a Pay to Prof scheme against one Timmy Boehme. The Missouri Attorney General obtained a wiretap on the admin's phone, and here is an exerpt:

Admin: Enough about your effin' Rams. And stifle on some supposedly "coming soon" Tarantino movie. Are you gonna give me the money?

Boehme: Oh, man, and their pass defense just really--

Admin: Enough! This teaching position is f*#@ing valuable. Think about it: Hot Blondes Learning Chaucer 101. I mean, the title speaks for itself. And it's all yours if you just pay up.

Boehme: By "blondes," do you mean the generally accepted designation, of females particularly? Because, you know, there ARE blonde-haired men.

Admin: Of course--

Boehme: I mean, you know...

Admin: Yes, I know.

Boehme: DO you? Because I can't have the front row be filled with surfer dudes who misunderstood the course title.

Admin: Yes, yes. I do mean women. Now, about the money...

And it goes on from there. More to come, no doubt. Perhaps you all have some excerpts you've uncovered.

Line of the Day

The setup:

CNN's Campbell Brown dedicated her "Cutting Through the Bull" segment to Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell Tuesday night over a remark he made while he did not know his microphone was on. Speaking about Obama's Homeland Security Secretary pick, Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, Rendell said, "Janet's perfect for that job. Because for that job, you have to have no life. Janet has no family, perfect. She can devote, literally, 19-20 hours a day to it." Brown — while never using the words "sexist" or "sexism" — (somewhat apologetically) chastised Rendell for the remark, which she suggested would never be made towards a man and unfairly focuses on work-family balance because Napolitano is a woman.

"I don't meant to rake you over the coals," she said to the always-candid Governor, "I know what you meant to say. But your comments do perpetuate stereotypes that put us in boxes, both mothers and single women."

postboy's response: "At least he didn't say he wants to cuts her tits off."
