10 Grand

Last night while Mrs. bee was babysitting at our daughter's house, I was channel surfing, trying to find something worth watching on TV. I landed on ABC just in time to see El Perrito and Mittenful going after each other during a GOP debate held in Iowa. Perrito was running through his usual boring condemnation of "Obamacare" and was trying to link Mittens to socialized medicine. By now, we've either heard or read about this line of attack approximately a thousand times, and I was ready to press the button on the remote when I heard Mittens telling Perrito he was a lying, worthless piece of shit. He didn't use those words, though -- he challenged Perrito to a friendly bet instead. Something along the lines of 10,000 dollars that such-and-such statement wasn't in a book he'd written, despite the bogus accusations of lying motherfucker Ricky Perry. I yawned and switched to a rerun of Everybody Loves Raymond.

Today, I was scanning various political blogs to make sure the world didn't come to an end while I was sleeping, and discovered that Romney's tongue-in-cheek offer of a 10,000 dollar wager is the political gaffe of the century, proves he's out of touch with the reality of life among the proles, and effectively ended his candidacy. Wow -- history was made, the fate of the nation shifted radically, and by sheer coincidence, I witnessed the whole thing.

There's a large segment of the American population that needs to seriously consider getting a life and stop taking trivial shit so seriously.
