No oscar nomination for Muammar al-Gaddafi?

Talking about performing under pressure, with his country in turmoil and millions of people calling for his head, the Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi still managed to find enough time to perform his own rendition of singing in the rain, complete with an umbrella and all.

Now that’s Oscar material, even though it wasn’t actually raining and the singing was a little off key. On a more serious note though, he really should get an award….a lifetime achievement award from the Grammys for pop culture influence or something. While the rappers of today are trying their hardest to come up with outrages outfits they are simply copying what Gaddafi has been doing for the last three decades with his psychedelic wardrobes. They might sing and dance about how gangster they are shooting everyone looking at them wrong, but this guy actually goes out and does it…on a mass scale. Glocks and AKs? Try a mobile missile launch platform and chemical warheads. Showing off with ladies in their entourage? This guy has virgin girls as bodyguards. On top of all this very few can match him for longevity. All in all it is not too far fetch to say that he is a rapper’s idol, living the life rappers can only sing about.

We’re all Condemned

George Santayana once said “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”.
No I’m not some sort of nerd showing off my superior historical intellect…well I am a nerd, but a stupid one, so I just looked it up since I can’t remember who said it or even the exact phrase, which in a way proves perfectly my point.  Considering how many (or how few) of us actually stay awake during history class, we are for sure condemned to repeat every single mistake ever made in history…….literally.    

Sarah Palin for President

I know a lot of people have been giving her a hard time recently. Basically mocking any chances the reality show starring, deer hunting, moose shooting mom has of ever becoming president of the United States, or if she should even be thinking about running for president at all. But you know what? I say why not, let her be the next president of the United States…….It would be a good laugh.

And for the people who actually lives in America….…well…….errr……… would still be a good laugh…kind of.
