    Most wanted man live has just been arrested.

    Whitey Bulger, who was portrayed in the Oscar winning move, “The Departed” was captured tonight in Santa Monica.

    In the past six weeks, Obama has taken out the nation’s top two most wanted men. Inspector Clouseau Bush had 8 years and could only manage to choke on pretzels. Obama has only been in office, 2 years, 5 months, and 2 days.

    I’m just glad that with balloon-juice around I need never mourn the passing of Encyclopædia Dramatica.

    Is it me, or does Weird Al as Gaga bear a more than passing resemblance to Ann-Margaret?

    Corner Stone: Yes, because you finished your reading assignment. Or at least showed up in class at the right time.

    Hilarious

    South Carolina will not fund the state GOP’s first-in-the-South presidential primary in February, leaving officials scrambling to sort out who will pay for it.

    The Republican Party insists the primary will go on, even if the GOP must come up with as much as $1.5 million to run it.

    The party could go back to running the primary with paper ballots and volunteers, which is how it was done until 2008.

    Sure paper ballots and volunteers in South Carolina? What could possibly go wrong…

    Nellcote, Washington got rid of primaries too. If the parties want to choose the one true standard bearer, they should have to pay to do it. It’s not as if political parties are technically needed in the electoral process.

    We use the jungle primary now. It will be interesting to see if the parties can get their shit together well enough to line up the generals in advantageous ways.

    Yeah, after the Pakistani Ambassador embarrassed Barack by pointing out our inability to capture Bulger, we really had to do something. It just goes to show: don’t try to show up the Kenyan in Chief.

    @Roger Moore: Ratko Mladic was arrested 4 weeks ago, Gingrich’s campaign imploded, Trump imploded, Wiener imploded, the Miami Heat imploded, today Palin quit her bus tour in mid term.

    The last 6 weeks have been a pretty tough on despots.

    It was the previous president’s policies that allowed this administration to catch the most wanted man in America.

    True, if Bush had prevented 9/11 the hunt for Bin Laden might never have started.

    GAK! I love Weird Al! I have since I first heard him back in the early 80’s & I have most of his albums; some are on cassette tape – antiques now :)

    I was working a contract out in CA in the late 90’s, around “Bad Hair Day” and happened to bump into him. I am not one to faun over ‘stars’ but I did shake his hand & tell him I liked his work. He stopped & actually just talked for a while, he seemed like a genuinely nice guy. I’m glad Gaga agreed to let him do this & not surprised that he is donating the proceeds.

    And don’t forget Clinton wanted to take UBL out in late ’99 but decided against it because he was afraid it would be seen as political & the Republicans would use it against Gore.
