lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala NOT LISTENING!

A list.  It’s that time of year.  You should have expected a list.

I didn’t create it (if you have ideas for lists I should make, please list them)

This is a list of top five political gaffes in 2010.  Obviously, there’s still a few days left, so I think they’re jumping the gun, but whatevs, ya know.

Of particular interest to me is #4, where Mark Kirk, Illinois Republican, gets a mention.

The Illinois Republican was forced to apologize for several claims he made about his service as a reserve intelligence officer in the Navy. Among other things, he claimed he had served in the 1991 Gulf War invasion, when he had not, and that his aircraft had been shot at during missions over Kosovo and Iraq. Kirk, who went on to win President Obama’s old Senate seat, said he couldn’t be sure about the account.

There are things one tends to forget, so don’t be too harsh on Mark.  He’s kind of daft anyway.  You may recall him from the great Children Saving Campaign of years past.  He was trying to make a name for himself back then by tackling the big issues like how virtual worlds were going to eat up all our children, leaving nobody left to make cheap socks in China (thanks for the socks, sis.  I know you thought it was hilarious, but I actually needed some clean socks).

The dark side of the Internet site quickly became evident when one of his aides created an account last week, Kirk said.

The aide tried and failed to log in as a 10-year-old. But she gained access, she said, using the same e-mail address when she claimed to be 18.

Within half an hour, the aide said, she was perusing pornography and roaming in “virtual rape rooms” and drug dens. Pictures of the images she encountered, displayed at the news conference, show her character stepping into a chamber equipped with chains and other torture devices.

Obviously, in this time of economic strife and heaving international tensions, you get more attention for being a war hero (real or not) than for saving the children from cartoon drug dens.

Kirk is just one of those guys.  His mouth runs in circles his brain is unfamiliar with.

Which brings me to today’s Lebron Update!

This basketball guy just won’t leave me alone.  He’s now talking about eliminating teams from the NBA so the remaining teams can have the best players from those teams.  Obviously, this was why he went to Miami in the first place.  To improve the league.  The thing you should know is that he is not suggesting contraction.  He doesn’t even know what that means, god damn it.

First there was Le King, letting us know what it is all about

“Imagine if you could take Kevin Love(notes) off Minnesota and add him to another team and you shrink the [league]. Looking at some of the teams that aren’t that great, you take Brook Lopez(notes) or you take Devin Harris(notes) off these teams that aren’t that good right now and you add him to a team that could be really good.

“I’m not saying let’s take New Jersey and let’s take Minnesota out of the league. But hey, you guys are not stupid, I’m not stupid, it would be great for the league.”

Now, Le King is putting us back in our places

“That’s crazy, because I had no idea what the word ‘contraction’ meant before I saw it on the Internet,” James said after the Miami Heat‘s practice Monday. “I never even mentioned that. That word never even came out of my mouth. I was just saying how the league was back in the ’80s and how it could be good again. I never said, ‘Let’s take some of the teams out.'”

Ah, those crazy kids.  We just don’t understand.
