Shaun White = holy crap

Okay, so here’s the deal – what I know about snowboarding wouldn’t fill the back of a postage stamp, but even I can tell when fifteen guys are working very very hard for a silver medal while the other would win the gold with his eyes closed and one leg tied behind his back. That […]

You’ve got the conservatives blasting you for your evil schemes to turn the health of poor innocent Americans over to shadowy gub’mint Death Panels (as opposed to, y’know, shadowy insurance company Death Panels), while the geeks excoriate you for your dastardly plans to stop wasting […]
