I couldn’t live blog tonight, as I had a class to teach. But I listened to most of it on the radio, and watched the rest on DVR when I got home. I wish the entire nation could have seen Governor Sandoval’s speech last night, in order to contrast it with this one. Sandoval gave [...]

Well, no big surprises. He made the same promises that he made a year ago, and the only difference is that now we can be even more sure he won’t keep any of them. The big takeaway from me on this was just how unserious this speech was.

I don’t know. But if it does, sign me up. During his captivity, US marines forced Saddam, who was executed in 2006, to repeatedly watch the movie South Park: Bigger, Longer And Uncut, which shows him as gay, as well as the boyfriend of Satan. Sweet.

It really, really made me angry. The only real reaction to it (that I’m [...]
