Who would have thought? Make sure to follow the links in her post. And you Lefties wonder why we are skeptical of Government run healthcare saving money. Obama can't even sell cars without getting hosed. You think he'll save health care costs?
Rick Reilly takes the "Hey, look at me" crowd to task. Makes me long for the days of Barry Sanders. Every time he crossed into the end zone, he'd either hand the ball to a ref, or a fellow teammate. Felt it was showing up his opponents if he spiked it.
Personal story: I met Barry back in 1995. I worked for an NBA player in Detroit, and lots of the Lions would hang out at the place I ran. Barry would come in from time to time, very low key. He was by far and away the most polite professional athlete I've ever met. Would spend time with the high school and junior high kids, talking and signing autographs. Never saw him "blinged" out, drunk, or doing anything that would make you think less of him. Class act all the way.
Way back on June 10th, 29 percenterPikerand I made a little prediction on how Obama would be polling on the economy by the end of the Summer. I predicted Obama's disapproval numbers would be higher than his approvals. 29 percenterPiker had a somewhat more bullshit nuanced answer:
Me, I think the numbers will vary about 4 points on the average. The policy approval/disapproval spread will go no more than 4 points one way or the other. On the whole, I think more people will continue to approve than disapprove.
Sorry for the lack of posts yesterday and today. Was out of town conducting interviews (did I mention I got promoted this week?), and had some personal business to attend to today. Not to worry, I'll make up for it.
