    When I tune in to NBC to watch the Olympics I DO NOT want to see Bob Costas interviewing some aging former athlete. I want to see athletes competing. With all the events going on each day they should have plenty of action to fill four hours of coverage.

    since everybody goes food shopping I though you would find this interesting and surprising

    Watching the festival of suck (aka London Olympic Opening Ceremony) I was reminded that the last good thing to come out of London was the Clash — and that was a long time ago.

      That hoedown would have been better if it was half as long. What looks good in a live show is unimpressive over the telly.

      Besides, people don’t watch the Super Bowl for the halftime show.

        Oh, contraire, the only reason I watched the 2007 Superbowl (Colts — yuck v. Bears — double yuck) was for the Prince half-time show.

        And it remains, the best Superbowl half-time show EVAH!! (could only find part of it on Youtube):

    Michael Phelps not only didn’t win a gold today he didn’t even get a medal.

    Is this song now considered un-PC?

  6. Is it mean of me to think, “the inevitable Grandpa Munster comparisons” when the WaPo asks about the cons of Paul Ryan as VP?

    Fail Mail:

    Myiq2xu, please sign our letter to the people of the United Kingdom, letting them know Mitt Romney’s oafish comments do not represent the views of most Americans toward one of our oldest and strongest allies. Click here to add your name–we will send the letter and the signatures to the British press.

    During his recent trip to the United Kingdom, Mitt Romney questioned London’s Olympic preparedness, forgot the name of the leader of the Labour Party, and said it would be terrible if the United States were to become like Europe. The people of the United Kingdom are so outraged over Romney’s behavior that even two leading members of the Conservative Party, Prime Minster David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson, went out of their way to issue harsh rebukes.

    In just two days, Mitt Romney has put a real dent in an alliance that took two world wars and forty years of the Cold War to build. That’s why we’re putting together a letter to the people of the United Kingdom, letting them know Mitt Romney does not speak for most Americans. We’ll send the signatures to the British press, and hopefully mend some of the wounds which Romney has so ineptly managed to inflict.

    Please sign our letter to the people of the United Kingdom letting them know that Mitt Romney does not speak for us.

    Keep fighting,
    Chris Bowers
    Campaign Director, Daily Kos

    P.S. Please chip in $3 to keep Daily Kos strong.

    • What’s hilarious is that after one of the MPs suggested a few days before Romney arrived that the British leadership thought there was now a greater than 50/50 chance that Romney would win, these same assholes were trashing them. Now it’s all “oldest and strongest allies.” One could get whiplash just watching these intellectual lightweights turn on a dime.
