Haiti Vs. Prop 8

January 12, 2010

I turned on Larry King on CNN who scrubbed a scintillating overview of steroids in baseball and the Jay-Conan story to the tragedy of the Haitian earthquake.  During commercials, I switched to Rachel Maddow for comparable quake coverage, but found very deep Prop. 8 coverage.

This time, it was Rachel 8, earthquake nothing.  Disappointed.  Eight’s important, but breaking news is just that and a lot of Haiti seems broken.

In the light of a new day, come to find out the earthquake wasn’t an ordinary disaster after all.  It was more correctly one of the greatest natural disasters in the history of mankind – possibly deaths in the six figure range and the complete physical destruction of a city of 3 million, plus – none of which apparently compares to the suffering of Prop. 8 afflicted lesbians, who don’t have governmental approval of their marriage, which is about a 2 on the Richter scale, if you will, while Haiti is a ten plus.  Shame, Rachel!

Overseas Contingency Operation

March 24, 2009

rachel-maddowJust heard on Rachel’s MSNBC show that Bush’s War On Terror (aka the Long War) has been renamed by the Obama administration.  It will forever be referred to as the Overseas Contingency Operation – until somebody changes it of course.  The acronym OCO is strategically wise, making it unlikely to become a Long War, as that would require a new acronym, namely LOCO, which we would have to be crazy to wage.
