I’m not exactly an Alabama fan, but anybody that kicks the shit out of Notre Dame is AOK in my book. If ND has to be in the
BS BCS Title Game, seeing them get killed (not that I actually watched, I have to admit) is the way to go. Otherwise, there’s not much in the news.
Republicans seem to hate Republican Chuck Hagel. I must confess that I don’t really remember all that much about him when he was a Senator, but if Republicans hate him, then he must be kinda OK. Plus he was an enlisted man in Vietnam, so at least he knows what it’s like to actually be out there getting shot at (and why he apparently seems to be opposed to endless war in the Middle East).
Then there’s the relentless march to the “debt limit” crisis, which Democrats (swear to god, hope to dies) claim they are absolutely unwilling to negotiate over. I kind of like the trillion dollar platinum coin idea, personally. Paul Krugman likes it, too. His idea is to pass legislation that abolishes the stupid debt ceiling in exchange for removing the loophole that lets the President mint trillion dollar coins to stick in the bank. Sounds fair to me.
Oh well, time to get back to obsessing on the current state of the SU football program.
