Seriously...Rush Limbaugh is a dick.

And not in the good way.

I know this isn't exactly news to most if not all of us here, but clock his latest outbreak of dickishness:

Limbaugh: Obama won't talk about Tennessee flood because "he doesn't have any constituents there to speak of"

From the May 7 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show

First of all...
"The federal government has moved quickly to assist Tennessee, and I appreciate the quick action by President Obama to declare the first of what I expect will be many counties authorized for federal assistance," Gov. Phil Bredesen said in a statement.

Second of all, and this is from a story headlined "Bredesen loving response to floods,"
Bredesen, a Democrat, said he’s been in regular contact with White House staff. In fact, he had just ended a long conversation with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

And third...obviously, all Americans are constituents of the President of the United States.

That should go without saying.

But even if we grant Limbaugh his stupid premise (that the President only cares about people who voted for him)'s still a stupid premise.

President Obama received 1,087,437 votes from Tennessee in the presidential election.

Well, it's official: We are living in the future.

Actual US News headline:

Robots position giant box over oil-spewing well

These days aren't anything like the way Thompson Twins told me they would be.

Nice try though, chick

The problem with trying to spoof songs from the '80s, which is what Kristen Wiig is trying to do here with a song from the MacGruber that you're never going to do it better than "You Got the Touch" in Boogie Nights.

And of course, the dirty little secret about that is, although you could be forgiven for thinking it was written as a satire of bad '80s rock, it actually, bad '80s rock. From the animated Transformers movie, yet.

You know what surprises me?

About the whole "David Boreanaz had a mistress" thing, I mean?

Certainly not the fact of his having one. I've had my suspicions, albeit with no evidence till now, about him for a long time.'d think you'd see more headlines playing on the name of his current TV series, Bones.

(I haven't even seen one that says "Turns Out, He's No Angel"...)

If it's all the same to you, I'd much rather see a sequel to "Labyrinth."

But instead we're getting Dark Crystal Two.

Jen o 'th Blag Hag is going to be published. How great for her. And why? Because at a certain publishing company...

one of their editors stumbled upon my blog and said they loved my writing and sense of humor. ...

It's been a goal of mine to get my creative work published ever since I was a little kid. I've been writing fiction stories since second grade, have a novel fairly far in progress (and other ideas that are less developed), have taken creative writing classes whenever I can, and absolutely love writing (which hopefully you can tell from my blog). I always said I wanted to be published before I graduated college, and there was that nagging cynical voice in the back of my head that said it wouldn't happen. But now due to the bizarre circumstances of an offhanded joke becoming internationally popular, my dream is literally coming true.

Excuse me, I have to go and bang my head against a desk now.

I have no idea what this is a sign of

I mean, I figure it's gotta be either maturity or depression.

But I never in my life thought that I would ever look at pictures of Madonna in her underwear and feel...nothing.
