Meg Whitman Wins Bidding for One-Way Ticket to Hell

“Until now she has declined to comment on whether the former housekeeper should be deported. But Wednesday, in an interview with Greta Van Susteren, Whitman answered the question head on. ‘Well, the answer is it breaks my heart, but she should be deported because she forged documents and she lied about her immigration status,’ Whitman said.” [LAT, via TPM]


You beat me to it, Nojo. The Chronic says that today she walked back her comment, but I don’t really see it.

Oh, and go Giants!

While we’re talking about going to hell, I have a question. Will I go to hell for saying that I really hate the trend of having them sing “God Bless AmeriKAH” during the 7th inning stretch? I remember when they used to sing irreverent shit before “Take Me Out To The Ballpark” and now it’s all about Jeebus and Flags. If they were singing “America the Beautiful” I might be okay with it, but I’ve always gotten hives from “GBA”

Oh, and of course FOX only shows them singing that song, and not the much more entertaining crowd-involved TMOTB.

@SanFranLefty: No, Honey. You’re already there.

I’m about to post something in the sandbox that’s related to what you just wrote.

Seriously, ya’lls, is noone going to the Jon Stewart thingaboo? Mrs. Promnight is literally kicking me out, insisting that I go, as I am wavering, but I cannot face it alone, is noone going?

@Promnight: What’s the weather gonna be like?

@Promnight: That was a supposed to be a play on Dems and not voting in bad weather. Seriously. I’ll go down with you or meet you there.



JNOV will be known as “Back-seat Driver and DJ”

Promnight will be known as “Chauffeur”


Chauffeur will not complain about Back-seat Driver and DJ’s music or critique of Chauffeur’s driving.

Chauffeur will stop at rest stops or near wooded areas as often as Back-seat Driver and DJ’s nicotine addiction and bladder dictate.

Chauffeur will provide appropriate iPod to car stereo device that will allow Back-seat Driver and DJ to blast music loud enough to blow out Chauffeur’s car speakers.

In the event that Chauffeur’s speakers are blown out, Chauffeur has two (2) hours to repair said speakers.

Back-seat Driver and DJ is allowed to sing at the top of her lungs and repeat any song as many times as she deems necessary.

@Promnight: AIM. Several days ago, I sent you an email via FB — my FB chatbox is broken. I’ll log onto Yahell and AIM.

Oh HAYELL to the YES! 9-ZERO! Go Giants! Make the Jeebus Freak Nolan Ryan and the young puffy-lipped hawt boyz who own the Rangers CRY!!!

@JNOV: Now do I watch Project RunGay or “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”? My head spins. I’m trying to watch Tim Gunn, Mr. SFL is trying to watch Linus. This could become an ugly arm wrestling contest.

@SanFranLefty: We saw a star born tonight. I generally don’t care for the country/RnB/gospell thing, but she was really good.

@SanFranLefty: Heh. Glad you watch together. Flip back and forth during commercials and hope the commercials aren’t synced. There’s an interesting part of Infinite Jest that deals with syncing of commercials.

Everyone in my dad’s house had their own TV, and my brothers, stepmom, and dad would retreat to their respective holes and seemed so isolated. That’s why I gots no TV — I let Jr take it to school lest he have some sort of gamer DTs or something.

@SanFranLefty: Good thing I’m not there. You do not get between me and the first two Peanuts specials.

@nojo: The Great Pumpkin and the tree ones used to make me incredibly sad. Poor kid sitting in a pumpkin patch and people making fun of him. Poor sickly tree and people making fun of it and Charlie Brown. I hated the Red Baron nonsense, but I love it when Snoopy dances. Pig-Pen is cool, too.

Beavis and Butthead are coming back. I’m not sure why. They were funny until they stopped Mystery Science Theatering videos. I would LOVE to see Ren and Stimpy show up on the scene with a gansta lean.

@nojo: Hon-EEEE! This is such a cute little fact to know about you. As I pointed out to Mr. SFL, we have the entire Peanuts oeuvre (including the lost episodes on the B-sides of the seasonal specials) on DVD, so we can watch Snoopy battle the lawn chair all nights of the year (much like I watch Mr. Potter in April).

@JNOV: Ren & Stimpy are the fucking bomb. LOVE them.

@JNOV: I strongly identified with Charlie Brown growing up. But I sounded more like Linus.

@nojo: Ten points if you can name Linus’s little brother reflexively.

@nojo: Really? I tuned in for a sec and it looked like cash-in dogshit and not the Dolly Madison classic.

Bonus metal track: AC/DC “Highway to Hell”

@nojo: P.S. Will you be upset if I call you Linus from now on? I heart Linus.

@nojo: Um. My nickname for awhile may have been Lucy.

@SanFranLefty: Don’t whiz on the electric fence!

@SanFranLefty: Later characters don’t count.

And come to think of it, since they used real kids to voice the early specials, they’re probably all my age.

@SanFranLefty: Call me what you want. Just don’t make me recite the Bible.

Although I did Genesis for a high-school production of Skin of Our Teeth. King James is fun when your voice goes baritone!

@SanFranLefty: Googled it. Are you kidding me? Heh.

@nojo: Bunch of girls were Charlie Brown, right?

@JNOV: Good guess, but that usually applies to adult voice actors doing kids, like Bart.

Quick Googling: Peter Robbins, the original Charlie Brown, does real-estate in Van Nuys. And he’s about three years older than me.

@nojo: Yeah, it looks like there was only one female voice actor for Charlie Brown.

Regina King does Huey and Riley on The Boondocks. I remember her from 227.

@redmanlaw: I’m not clicking that. I know it’s nothing but trouble.

@SanFranLefty: Ah. Right.

But that was 1972. I was almost on to Doonesbury by then.

@nojo: Dude. It’s Phil in a Hawaiian shirt with Chester on drums and that Daryl dude on guitar.

Well . . . yeah. I watched some dude play Squonk on the drums, as well as Walking on the Moon.

@nojo: So (a) you looked or (b) you know something.

@redmanlaw: I peeked. And 25 seconds in, I bailed.

Speaking of Sixties comedy icons, it’s Stiller & Meara!

Okay, fine. Ben’s parents.

@nojo: Thanks to you, I ended the evening trying to play rhythm guitar to King Crimson’s “Thela Hun Gingeet” covered by Les Claypool of Primus. (Long story.)

Ugggh. Got a hearing in the AM Auf 2 bed.

@redmanlaw: I guess one of the advantages of my choice of instrument is that you don’t do that with a trumpet.
