A few things:
In sports, the Playoffs start this weekend! We're pickin' the games over on the Sports side of the house. Mr. Danian breaks down the whole playoff picture over at OnceYouAreIn. It's pro-football, so I'm at a decided disadvantage....not to be confused with my mastery of the college game (yeah, right). And for those of you living under a rock, Vince Young is such a stud he broke a whole pack of Trojans last night. We SEC biased football fans have plenty to say about it here.
In politics, the South Georgia Center-Left Coalition has decided to endorse the Reverned Jim Nelson for the District 1 House seat against 12 year incumbent (and UGA alum) Rep. Jack Kingston. Both are pretty cool cats, so this race could actually end up being about the issues. (Jackie's even got his own blog for cryin' out loud.) We gear up for the Great Battles of Ought Six.
In jackassery, Rightwingers Against Really Real Reality! (RARRR!) Spokesman Pat Robertson actually went in front of cameras, opened his mouth and told the world he thought that God has a hand in Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke. He actually goes further and states that Israel is, indeed, above international law and should be allowed to do whatever the hell they want, no matter what the United States of America thinks. So Nyah! Luckily, upwards of 40,000 blogs are sharing this information, (including 2ndCW). What I find very interesting is that posts concerning Mr. Robertson also have to be broken down into categoreies based on stupid stuff that he said, and that "God needs cash, and he wants you to give it to me" isn't even in the top 4.
That earns Patty Boy a January Jackassery Nomination! He joins Bill O'Reilly (nominated and excoriated by Matt Ortega over at Second Civil War.
