Friday Night Smooth w/ Shelby Lynne


Read this article in Self Magazine "Date rape cases still hard to win," and I bet everyone at the Situation will be as appalled as I am.

Open mouth, insert foot

A mayor of a small town in Australia has been awarded the country's yearly award for most outrageous, sexist comment for asking "ugly ducklings" to move to a remote mining town to reverse a shortage of eligible women. Here is what I want to know: does this man actually expect any woman to move to this town now?

Now that everything has calmed down, maybe Ralph Nader can get back, back , back to doing what he was best at

The Post-Election Sarah Palin Chronicles: Thanksgiving Edition

And the incompetence continues....

After following the unique Thanksgiving tradition of pardoning two turkeys, though letting the rest suffer the fate of feast, Sarah Palin gives an interview.

Yet, showing the American people how well she knows her speaking situation, Palin speaks to a reporter while workers at the turkey farm kill turkeys in the background of the interview. According to Fox News in San Diego, Palin knew what was occurring in the background but chose not to shoot the interview at another location.

And to think, she could be our V.P. Elect.

As an FYI, I am on vacation in San Diego. I mean I am at our National Conference in San Diego. It is a hard-knock life, I know, but I will move forward.

Anyway. Here's a song definitely meant to be listened to at night.

Sorry I was late, but here's a little Van Halen to make up for it:

For You, Oxymoron

Here's an article called "Dear President Obama, There are a couple of embarrassing e-mails from my past that I think you should know about" on Slate. An excerpt, to explain why I'm directing Oxy to read it:
From: Justin Peters

Subject: Whoops!

hey all … my first week on e-mail and I'm already screwing it up. yesterday afternoon, I accidentally hit "reply all" and sent everyone in my address book an e-mail that I only meant to send to brad. although this was meant to be humorous, i understand that many of you found it incredibly hurtful. for the record, i don't really think that all the sophomore girls are "aspiring whores," and i certainly don't think that beth jervey is a fat and stupid hooker who never takes a shower. i also was kidding when i said those things about mrs. wenzel, beth jervey's father, and people of irish heritage. finally, i did not mean to attach that photograph of my balls. please delete that photograph asap.
