Mitt Romney: Superhunk

I know, I know. No excuses. Though I did have one last exam (yesterday) to study for, I still had plenty of time to update this. As usual, I've just been too miserable. For now I have to shower and get ready for work, but here's a few little points of interest. I'll try to come up with a better post later tonight or perhaps tomorrow.

I'm surprised that more coverage hasn't been given to the ONE solitary player who voluntarily cooperated with George Mitchell's drug investigation. I find it pretty disgusting. While I'm sure that the overwhelming majority of players did not take performance enhancing drugs, no one would speak about it for fear of being labeled as a rat or scab or whatever you call it. It's a pretty sad mentality, one that I partly blame the Player's Association for. The union is probably more to blame than anyone else in this whole mess and by and large the reason that baseball is so fucked up. The MLBPA is infinitely more powerful than any other sport's union in the world and I've never liked the negative influence they have on the sport. Still they're not entirely to blame. These are big boys and it's unreal that none of them seem to man up if they have taken whatever substance or on the flip side offering up what they know if they haven't. Oh and that one player? Toronto Blue Jays D.H. Frank Thomas. A lot of people have said a lot of things about him over the years, but no one can ever say that he was a cheater. Here's hoping Big Frank winds up in Cooperstown like he deserves.

By no means am I advocating smoking in a car when there's a child in the vehicle. Hell, if there's anyone else in the car at the same time, I wouldn't do it unless they assured me they were fine with it. I should hope that other people would have the same decency and consideration. But when things like this start happening, we're being led down quite the slippery slope indeed. I actually don't even smoke anymore, if you discount social situations, stressful times or cigars. But I really do hate each and every anti-smoking person out there. They are fascists plain and simple and I mean that in the most serious sense.

And I just find the title of this article to be hilarious. Fidel, you've been clinging to office since 1959! I don't think another year or two will make much of a difference at this point. Your country is a fucking dump (unless you're a tourist) and most of it is thanks to you! Thankfully he looks just awful and it can't be too much longer. But perhaps he'll leave Cuba to Hugo Chavez in his will or Chavez will just try to annex it after Castro kicks it. Yes socialism is really great and works oh-so-well.

Finally, this just looks right. Granted the National Review (an excellent publication) didn't endorse him based on looks, but they could have and I'd have been convinced. I'm still not decided on who would make the best President, but Mitt might just be the man.

Once again, I should point out that Mitt Romney's favorite novel is Battlefield Earth.
