Elisha Nelson “Eli” Manning

When you look at what his dad and older brother Peyton have accomplished, it’s really saying something that Eli outshined them both. He is the hero of little brothers everywhere.

    Study: Sex with Your Ex Can Be a Good Thing

    They know what you like and have already seen you naked. Having worked in family law for several years I can tell you that boinking exes is very common, even during the middle of angry divorces.

    When you think of the bazzillions spent on commercials last night, our local guy came out on top. Not only winning the Doritos contest, but top dog of the night 😀 Nice story…..

    LOL, one more….Kevin at Hillbuzz thinks Obama should use Madonna’s Super Bowl set and costumes for the DNC convention….

    M. I. A. can KMA.

    I hope the producers get their money back.

      What a really odd thing to do. What the hell kind of message was he trying to send? Maybe it means something new with the kids these days. Most likely he’s just an ass.

      I know Our Lady of Perpetual Controversy(Madonna) wasn’t paid for the performance not sure about M.I A., Minaj or LMFAO as they all appear on her latest album and all benefit greatly for the exposure. Cee Lo Green, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton are all on NBC’s The Voice this year so that was promotional. M.I.A is at the top of the trending charts right now. Remains to be seen if it translates into any significant sales. She may have just made herself a household name or she will be viewed as pathetic. Hardly think her juvenile antics are noteworthy only thing I find disturbing is that she did it during someone else’s performance. But who knows perhaps Madge was in on it. The camera managed to be on her at that very moment. Plenty of rehearsals and her expletive and gesture were well timed. Either way Madonna gets as much press as the Giants today while staying above the fray.
      Overall I enjoyed the half time show. Did not feel like 12 minutes. I thought she was a very odd choice but the Super Bowl is epic and I thought to my surprise it fit well.
      Also in 1984/85/86 a huge deal was made about a woman, Tina Turner who came out with a an album and rocked and was sexy. Hate or love Madonna but at 53 she is older than Tina Turner when Private Dancer was released. Mick Jagger/Paul McCartney/Prince/Springsteen/Dylan are never called out for their age. A woman putting on the most epic of ever produced half time shows created 12 riveting moments to a crowd of hundred of millions and a live audiance of at least 80,000. Not a concert. No pausing back stage– 12 minutes straight through. Every article mentions her age. I have to respect her for taking this on– one brave woman.

      • Lola-at-Large says:

        Great comment, and ITA. She also sounded really great. Consummate showwoman, that Madonna.

    • Three Wickets says:

      M.I.A. has made big bucks being a pop star, but she’s always had a subversive streak. Believe she’s Tamil Tiger or at least sympathetic to the cause. Flipping off America though is bit much. I mean how many Americans watching the Superbowl would be aware of the Hindu/Buddhist rift. I guess a handful of Sri Lankans may have been watching the game.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Good one.

    • votermom says:

      I can see the Tea Party potentially going through a similar trauma this year.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think they already had their 2008 when Sarah bailed, then Cain dropped out. So far, our local Tea Party is remaining active only with local and state independent candidates and issues in the state assembly. No real passion for any GOP candidate, and will probably rally behind the eventual nominee.

    • Three Wickets says:

      Well one thing’s for sure. Obama’s been very good for rich people, and during a deep recession no less. Most Obots have no idea how badly they’ve been used. Sad actually.

  6. myiq2xu says:

    BTW – what happened to “Occupy Super Bowl?”

  7. Lola-at-Large says:

    Oh man, I hope GLAAD wins this one: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/super-bowl-david-beckham-cnn-roland-martin-homophobic-287201

    Wouldn’t it be awesome to see His Rolandness taken down by Teh Queers? That might be better than the Giant Win last night!

    • DandyTiger says:

      Bend it like Beckham. 🙂

    • timothy2010 says:

      You just do not understand. Do you? It is okay for obama to tour/campaign with the likes of Mary Mary. It is okay to be homophobic if you are african american but if you are white and Catholic expressing far less vile sentiments and echo the same thoughts you are racist. Huh???

  8. DeniseVB says:

    How about some Onion ? This is funny and I would vote for the mystery candidate over Obama. Okay, that’s sad 😉

    Breaking (my heart) —

    Quelle Surprise! New York and California Attorneys General Look Ready to Sign on to Mortgage Settlement

    It is too late (it was probably too late when Schneiderman sat in Michelle Obama’s box during the State of the Union address) but if you are in California or New York, you might as well call or e-mail your AG and give them a piece of your mind. Keeping the pressure on Schneiderman and Harris, and supporting AGs like Beau Biden of Delaware, Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada, and Martha Coakley of Massachusetts, are the best hope we have at this point.

    For New York, call 800 771-7755, 212 416-8000 or 518 474-5481 use the web form here or at his fundraising office. For Kamala Harris, call 916 445-9555 or this web form.

    open letter to Clint Eastwood on super bowl ad

    http://www.verumserum.com/?p=37672

    • yttik says:

      Good letter! I was wondering why that ad annoyed me so much. Yeah tough guy, my life isn’t a football game and this isn’t Hollywood. Halftime sounds like a flippin party compared to what most folks are going through. People are doing all that they can and along comes Clint lecturing us to all get up and do more. Excuse me, I’ve done my part! Why don’t you give this lecture to the crooks in government and the crony capitalists who are making things a lot worst then they have to be.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I missed the Clint, but Michael Moore loved it, so there’s a clue 😉 The GE one bothered me too….happy workers, America’s coming back ! Isn’t their CEO Obama’s jobs czar ?

    I am turning up my nose at both politics and football this week, and cooking up a storm.

    Today was Shrimp and Grits, because a SC Lowcountry gal has to do that every so often, even if I’m a Texan now. 😀

    As one of the commenters said, if you think it was about Obama, you’re a raaaacist hater!

  15. votermom says:

    OT: Ever since Hopey Changey got installed and the economy went to heck, I have been so twitchy about any changes in things that might or might not affect me. Like finding out about something going on in a local business / big employer is enough to make me get super-anxious. It’s like having economic PTSD. Anyone else get that feeling?

    • yttik says:

      Oh goodness, yes! I have a bad case of economic PTSD.

      One thing that’s really difficult to do is to try not to panic or despair. Our suicide rate has gone way up and it’s really depressing because there’s always a way out and maybe even something better down the road, but it’s so hard to communicate that to people who may be losing a home or a business they’ve had for decades.

      • votermom says:

        Tinfoil tuesday thought — wouldn’t it be a nice side-effect for TPTB if making the majority of Americans twitchy, panicky, despairing makes them that much easier to manipulate?

    • DeniseVB says:

      VM, I am vexed. Even the worst days of Bush never made me feel like someone was intentionally trying to crash our country. Me, of the middle class schmucks, stopped donating to my personal “worthy” causes because all of a sudden I had to take care of my PERSONAL worthy cause…ME, my family, et al. We stopped spending so we can eat and pay our bills.

      I am reading as fast as I can on the left/right news and blogs. I watch the Congress….Boehner/Reid….and think eff you all on Capitol Hill and your pollsters. Then I blog something…

    • WMCB says:

      Oh, yeah. I’m twitchy at any and all economic news.

    my little town has had so many businesses close that it becoming a ghost town.
    From what I read that is happening all over the country.

    Okay, this is RedState, but I share Erickson’s frustration with the presidential choices (albeit for varied reasons that may differ in part from his). He has finally given up hope and is endorsing…….
