Greatest Senior Prank Ever?

Posted by

I cannot at this point verify that this was in fact a Senior Prank, or if it was just a rogue gang of Republican students wanting to make a statement or have a laugh. Whatever the case, my former high school in Cobb County, Georgia has made the papers on this historic…

Some thoughts. Should Romney lose, there will be trolling beyond belief, including liberals trying to get Republicans to fight with each other in order to tear the party apart. There are fights which will need to be had, but not tomorrow.  Operation Demoralize never stops. Don’t succumb. It will be tempting to do…

And I don’t even maintain an office in Massachusetts. But I am a member of the Bar.  Bar Association dues are for the little people, and suckers.

I am going to regret doing this. You can send me reports and photos, and I will selectively post them. If things get overwhelming, as on National Empty Chair Day, I may have to call it off! If you have reports without photos, do not email me, post in the comments. [added] Remember, some…

No time left. Saw this at the local Wal-Mart (South Elgin, IL). Sure hope that Romney wins the election – we can’t afford another four years of Obama, both personally, and as a nation. Keep up the good work! Loyal reader Janet

I was a student in Moscow when the Miracle on Ice took place. The stats were all on the Soviet’s side.  They had the more professional operation.  They were more seasoned and organized.  Statistically, the Soviets had at least an 87% likelihood of winning. But we had motivation. I didn’t see it live, but I…

Thanks for your comments on blog format for Election Day. You came down pretty much were I was — not thrilled with those “live blog” formats like CoverIt Live (which has priced me out of contention).  There are alternatives, but I think I have something better. We will have an embedded Twitter feed based…

The post title is from the 2:49 mark of this video, passed on to me via Twitter. The broken English, which was added over the soundtrack, adds to the video.  And it doesn’t hurt that it includes a screen shot from Legal Insurrection (at 2:47). The original video is of a Scandinavian band called…
