Coh-Stanza: That Heineken Commercial Song

Posted by Mike on May 13, 2008

I’m feeling a little vindictive right now. Since this song has been stuck in my head for about two and a half days now, I think you need to hear it too.

Come to think of it, you probably already have.

ETA: The song is “It’s Love” by Chris Knox

Cuntry Roads: She Who Must Not Be Named Wins West Virginia Primary

Posted by Mike on May 13, 2008

She Who Must Not Be Named won tonight’s West Virginia Democrat Primary by a landslide. Despite tonight’s lopsided result, little has changed in the race for the other party’s nomination. As was the case before tonight, the primary is essentially over. I mean, she was singing months ago. (I wonder if Barack Obama could name that tune?)

Tonight’s victory actually sheds more light on media bias than it does on the Democrat horse race. Just a few days ago, AFP “reported” on the “fractured” state of the Republican Party, citing primary results showing approximately 25% of Republicans voting for candidates other than McCain as evidence. But that actually begs the question doesn’t it.

If the presumptive Republican candidate winning primaries with 75% of the vote is evidence of a fractured GOP, what does it say about AFP’s favorite party if their presumptive nominee is actually losing primaries even though their race is over? And keep in mind that not only is the Empty Suit still losing primaries despite being the obvious nominee, as of this moment, he’s losing tonight’s primary by the slim margin of 37 points! Yet somehow the narrative is that the GOP is divided. Nice try AFP.

Matt Walsh and Spygate

Posted by Ryan on May 13, 2008

The former New England Patriots’ scout, Matt Walsh, handed over eight more tapes related to the Spygate scandal which followed the Pats near-perfect run last season, leading to that karmic smackdown called Super Bowl XLII. 

As a wounded Patriots fan, more tapes mean more pain, however I was elated to hear that no Super Bowl tapes were part of Walsh’s collection.  That would have permanently tainted the Brady-era for myself, most sensible fans and foes.   

I’d like to think that all of this is mostly behind us now as a dark moment in Pats history, but every single game played in New York is going to have spirited chants mocking the Pats, from easy ones like “Cheaters Never Win” to “18-1” to a host of other things I’m sure that Jets fans will concoct.

Feeling Green About McCain

Posted by Ryan on May 13, 2008

Well, I’m back! 

I just moved into a better, swankier place so I was AWOL for a while.  My Internet was messed up and my new and exciting digital cable was all pixelated and unclear until about thirty minutes ago.  But now all is well.

I digress. Read the rest of this entry »
