Out of date post

Below is a compilation of Adrian Peterson highlights from his rookie year. I post this now only so I can easily locate the video when I want to. But, if you are a pure football fan, you will still find it fun to watch.

The first season of the guy who has a chance to be one of the best ever.

The power of YouTube

I can't believe that this isn't going to become a problem for Hillary in the coming days.

UPDATE 4/9.08: Just FYI, this was fresh when I posted it. Time seems to suggest (as of the date of this update) that this complete and fully exposed lie will be looked back at as the thing that lost her any chance of the nomination. Personally, I think that it was one of the biggest political brain farts ever.

Thought of the day

The blindingly self-centered propensity of some people has always confused me, but what I find more confusing is why "we" often implicitly agree to live by the self-centered person's rules.

Jim Cramer, earlier last week, when Bear Stearns was at about $63 a share

On Sunday, J.P. Morgan announced a deal to buy the company for $2 a share.

This is a Spitzer commercial that ran in 2006. I'm sure that it was effective at the time, but now it seems comical.

Bad (but timely) joke

The phone rings. Hillary Rodham Clinton picks it up.


"Hillary, it's Silda Wall Spitzer. Sorry to call so late. Eliot's still not home. Based on your experience, what should I do?"

Minnesota Senate Race

The race in Minnesota for the Democratic candidate to face incumbent (and former Democrat) Sen. Norm Coleman has abruptly ended. The Democratic candidate will be Al Franken. Does God hate Minnesota? Wasn't Jesse Ventura our practical joke? Can't we laugh at somebody else this time?

Hooplehead of the day

Recently, I started watching on DVD the HBO series Deadwood , a fictional series based on real people (including Wild Bill Hickok). Bad guy Al Swearengen is a main character, and he describes anyone who he considers to be an idiot as a "hooplehead." I have become fond of that term, so I introduce a new feature, the Hooplehead of the Day. Today's winner is PGA Tour golfer Tripp Isenhour. Link.

UPDATE: I will only call attention to public figures. Stupid criminals, etc. aren't eligible.
