Rick Santorum Can't Lose

Just because. 

And yes, this is seriously one of the worst Photoshop jobs ever.

Chopped Eagle

What does this have to do with anything? Nothing really. I'll just leave you to question my sanity...

Romney’s Pro-Life Position Not So New

Also: Say hello to the “Sev-Con”

There’s a NYTimes article out over the weekend that is all the buzz today. The pull-quote du jour is by former Mitt Romney strategist Mike Murphy, who told National Review in 2005 that Romney "is a pro-life Mormon faking it as a pro-choice friendly."

The preferred pick-apart is that this proves Romney will say and do anything to get elected. And, I admit, it certainly sounds damning. If nothing less, it was a poor choice of words. But this is old news. At the time Murphy issued a statement saying he had been misquoted. I’d say the facts support Murphy’s side of the story.

Rant Alert: Liberalism in Kids' TV

The leftist undertones of The Danger Rangers

The only drawback I’ve so far discovered in cutting the cable is the lack of children’s programming broadcast on Saturday mornings. When all my electronics are in working order, Hulu and Netflix solve this issue handily. Unfortunately, my TV went kablooie, and the one from the spare room ain’t so internet friendly. DVDs only go so far b/c my kids still require supervision at all times and I ain’t watching the same eight episodes of SpongeBob over-and-over. So, I find myself tolerating the limited selection available over the airwaves.

Most of it is fine, actually. There are, however, a couple of irksome programs. Take The Danger Rangers (please!) which might be better named "The Party Poopers." As you may have guessed, it is a show about safety-—stop, drop, and roll and whatnot—-which is well and good. Except that they present the message with storylines that advocate overly cautious behavior as a remedy. What’s more, they often have a left-leaning bent that I don’t care to expose my kids to. For whatever reason, I wasn’t so quick with the clicker today and ended up watching the thing.
