Alarming News

February 23, 2007

A short list of not-so-random thoughts

***How could Drew Barrymore be 40? (She’s wearing a bikini at the link so it might not be safe for certain work environments.) I’m not sweating turning 30 in April, not much anyway, but the fact that she’s 40 and hot sure is encouraging.

***I love Dick Cheney:

“My statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, is that we will validate the strategy of al Qaida,” Cheney said. “I said it, and I meant it.”

“I am not sure what part of it that Nancy disagreed with,” Cheney told ABC News during an interview today in Sydney, Australia. “She accused me of questioning her patriotism. I didn’t question her patriotism, I questioned her judgment.”

Cheney said: “The point I made, and I’ll make it again, is that al Qaida functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home.”

“A failed strategy? Let’s see: We didn’t fail when we got rid of Saddam. We didn’t fail when we held elections. We didn’t fail when we got a constitution written. Those are success stories.”

Someone tell me again why he can’t run in ‘08. Remember how he made lunch of Edwards in the debate?

***I love this about my friend Dawn Eden (from an interview with Doublethink about her book “The Thrill of the Chaste”): “She is not at all what you would expect a Christian author who has just finished a book about the virtues of chastity to be like.” I enjoy the unexpected.

***David Weigel of Reason predicts National Review will suck it up and endorse Giuliani “in about a year”. I say they suck it up and endorse John McCain. Doesn’t it kind of suck that no matter who conservatives choose, we’re sucking it up?

***Of the proverbial 7 Deadly Sins, I always thought that laziness was the one I most embodied. Now I am not so sure.

BONUS: ***I like commenters that call me hot.

Drew isn’t 40, she’s 32…

What!? Perez Hilton is such a liar! I was like “how can she be 40, how?!”

Didn’t you see “ET”? What year did that come out? How old was she then?

Posted by: Allah at February 23, 2007 at 2:45 pm

I’m sorry for being an immigrant, ALLAH.

Posted by: Karol at February 23, 2007 at 2:47 pm

You haven’t seen ET?? Isn’t that part of the citizenship test?
Good lord, woman. What kind of American are you?

Posted by: Allah at February 23, 2007 at 3:01 pm

I did see it but not when it came out because I didn’t speak English then. Sigh.

I like commenters that call me hot.

You are hot!

Posted by: Allah at February 23, 2007 at 6:27 pm

Haha, you’re just saying that. I know your standards of hot. :-P

Posted by: Karol at February 23, 2007 at 6:28 pm

I’m not at all. Way to put yourself down, though. Heh.

Posted by: Allah at February 23, 2007 at 6:33 pm

You know if anyone else says it I just say “thank you” and smile. But we’ve spent too many hours looking at chicks you think are hot for me to believe you. ;-)

Posted by: Karol at February 23, 2007 at 6:43 pm

I swear! How can I prove it? You want me to pop a rod and send you a photo?

Posted by: Allah at February 23, 2007 at 6:49 pm

You know, I love Dick Cheney too. He’s the only Republican in Washington who is willing to come out and say what the others are thinking. And in this case he’s absolutely, 100% right.

Drew Barrymore turned 32 yesterday.
She was born on Feb. 22, 1975.
She ain’t even close to 40.

First of all, you’re hot.
Second of all, Cheney won’t run in 2008 for the same reason he didn’t run in 2000. His health is questionable and they don’t want someone to take office only to croak unexpectedly. He can do VP duties and stay out of the limelight (and in one location) which helps him control things like his blood pressure and overall health. He can’t do that if he’s President.

she is hot.
For a Facist!!!!!

The only thing that precludes a Cheney run is his age and health. There is no Constitutional barrier to a Cheney candidacy.

Posted by: Barry in CO at February 24, 2007 at 2:59 am

I can’t agree with this one. As a Republican environmentalist, the fact that Cheney has served no one but the oil companies makes him appalling.

If Drew’s 40, then I’m….er, older.
And I’m not ready for that. So please scroll Gertie’s age back to 32, if only to make me feel better.

Drew Barrymore is not 40. She’s 32.
