“Let me give you the last piece of evidence that there is a revolution going on, and it is coming. It is — there is a revolution, and they think they can get away with it quietly. They think they — and they — they — you know what? At this point, gang, I’m not sure, they may be able to because they are so far ahead of us. They know what they’re dealing against; most of America does not yet. Most of America doesn’t have a clue as to what’s going on. There is a coup going on. There is a stealing of America, and the way it is done, it has been done through the — the guise of an election, but they lied to us the entire time. Some of us knew! Some of us we’re shouting out, you were: “this guy’s a Marxist!” “No, no, no, no, no, no.” And they’re gonna say, “we did it democratically,” and they are going to grab power every way they can. And God help us in an emergency.”—

FUCK YOU, GLENN. i don’t think i have a big enough font to say this properly.
With excellent editorials like this one, I’m astonished that Morris Publishing is teetering on bankruptcy.
this is why people in the news should keep their hands off anything that’s supposed to be funny. i saw colbert’s acceptance speech at the 2007 peabodies and he couldn’t have been more gracious. so he made a joke at uga’s expense? he won the award for making jokes. it’s dude’s job.
i also love that this story has no byline, which must mean it’s the abh’s institutional position. nice to see they have their priorities in order.
i have a soft spot for weird character actors who i like and recognize from being pretty good (or better) in a number of different projects.
chris eigeman had a nice recurring role as a teacher on malcolm in the middle, and he played the obnoxious author/psychotherapy patient in noah baumbach’s unjustly unheralded mr. jealousy, but he hasn’t been in anything recently except a one episode guest spot on fringe.
GIVE THIS GUY A JOB. he’s totally ok. i can vouch for him.
baseball is a game of routine, which makes it all the more special when something out of the ordinary happens. those moments are why i love me some ball, and why people who complain that the game is boring are dead wrong. for all the monotony, weird little novelties are constantly occurring.
mlb oddities chronicles the weird stuff in baseball, every day, game by game. like this one, about the kansas city royals playing a nine inning game without recording a single defensive assist: 13 fly outs, 9 strikeouts, 2 ground outs (both, presumably, to the first baseman).
i think that’s fucking crazy. if you agree with me, you’re a nerd, and you will rightfully go and spend a little time here.
