    Chicken hawk Saxby Chambliss is retiring. What he did in 2002 was really low, so good fucking riddance.

    @Alex S.: And they’re threatening to pull out of the EU.

    3-1 they either go to war over the Falklands again or invade Scotland.

    Heh, indeed.


    Interesting! This is a possible pick-up if the Reps nominate one of their crazies.

    The Cameron is a real man making tough decisions. The first man they’ve had in the job since St. Margaret.

    That would be defend the Falklands. I’m not sure you can invade a country that you know, you actually already govern.

    Just wait until they have a King again, instead of a Queen. IMO, their national psychology will change (monarchies are weird that way).

    We’ll be hearing neocon pundits on both sides of the Pond quip about “Britain! Resurgent!” by 2040.

    @Litlebritdifrnt: Bush doctrine the Argentines by sending the fleet to blockade Rio. Premptive war against a potential ally of the real enemy when they’re least expecting it.

    @BGinCHI: Actually, they didn’t invade, just sent in additional troops to support those already here, as well as doing major recruitment amongst the colonists, a sizeable portion of which were on Britain’s side.

    South Carolina GOP chair has some interesting ideas on how Obama won…

    [The Obama campaign] targeted inner-cities, and they had cell phone numbers that they could send constant text messages to. You talk to some of those people with Obama phones [sic], and they were getting 3-5 text messages a day from the Obama [campaign] to go out and vote. That’s reaching your base, man.

    Yay, Serena! And in this one, she pressures Q host Jian into making him sing with her for the first time since he was in Moxy Fruvous. OMG MOM JEANS!

    More Serena, singing with a yam.

    You think things might change?

    Maybe their international fortunes might improve if the Three Lions squad were to kick more ballboys. How shameful: the “brave and true” John Terry being shown up by some Frenchie.

    Francois Hollande better watch out for Cameron in Davos. (though it would neatly illustrate just how much Cameron wants to leave the EU.)

    Isn’t describing anything/someone as the ‘Canadian ______’ sorta like bitch-slapping with faint praise?

    @japa21: I’ve been to the Falklands/Malvinas and the people there (ALL of them)are more British than the Queen.

    That and all the land mines that still remain (blowing up the occasional wandering sheep) can be quite unnerving.

    Unanimity in New England closer.

    The Rhode Island House of Representatives on Thursday overwhelmingly passed legislation to allow gays and lesbians to marry in the only New England state where they can’t.

    The House voted 51-19 after an often emotional debate that touched on civil rights, religion and the nature of marriage. The bill now moves to the Senate, where both supporters and opponents of gay marriage say it is difficult to predict the bill’s fate.  Source

    Laugh about being Canadian all you want, that lady has pipes and can use them emotively.

    Great song well done… better than Amy if you ask me, more emotion in the fine control.
