An Uncivil “Train Wreck”

Posted by Ryan on February 8, 2008

Apparently, McCain’s success in all but wrapping up the Republican nomination has put serious pressure on the Dems to handle this nomination thing, freaking some of them out.  Apparatchik and She Who Must Not Be Named shill Florida Senator Bill Nelson is warning of a “train wreck” at the DNC this summer if a nominee is uncertain by that point. 

The problem the Dems have which the Republicans don’t is the issue of the “super-delegates” and who they will support.  There may be a scenario where one wins the pledged delegates, but doesn’t get the “super-delegates.”  How very undemocratic.  I believe that those “super-delegates” owe too much to SWMNBN and her husband to snub them when the rubber hits the road (pun intended).

Once Smeagol has assuaged Conservative anger by promising he’ll do things which he probably won’t actually do, the fractures in the Democrat Party will be the big story.  O’Bama, SWMNBN, and the DNC will be attacking McCain, but the real story that the MSM is getting ready to miss is the turmoil amongst the Democrat base.  The pandering Leftist dribble and the potential for great ads will flourish over the next few months unless someone breaks out.

Ride The Corkscrew Again . . . Almost

Posted by Mike on February 8, 2008

This one’s for the Rhode Islanders. Like me, many of you have fond memories of Rocky Point, that cheesy amusement park from yesteryear. We will never taste chowda and clamcakes in the World’s Largest Shore Dining Hall, spit on the fat lady in the House of Horrors or be drenched by flume bacteria water ever again, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go down memory lane every now and then.

Many of the park’s rides were auctioned off when the park was sold. One of the park’s main attractions, the Corkscrew, wound up in Seattle. Even more miraculously, some Rhode Islanders did too. Lucky for us, they filmed their ride on the relocated rollercoaster and now we can ride the corkscrew again, sort of.

As you watch the video, you’ll be amazed at the familiar sounds and how you will remember exactly where the turns and loops are.
