Quik F’its…

Golden Boy to Black Sheep
Ok, things just don’t seem to be going too well for our friend Michael Phelps. I’m sure you’ve already heard the bad news (for him). First he has been barred from competitive swimming for three months and perhaps even more damaging, his endorsement deal has been dropped by Kellogg’s!

I have yet to speak to a single person that doesn’t sympathize with Phelps for this whole episode. Most people see this as a public lynching and gross over-reaction. Also, I have yet to speak to a single person that hasn’t said, “Did you see the size of that damn bong!” I guess the dude also has some Olympic sized lungs…

Can you think of another “Golden Boy” that has fallen so far from grace so fast, and so soon after reaching the top of the world?

Maybe Change Ain’t so Easy
This week has been home to some pretty interesting political developments. Unless you live under a really big rock, you already know about the massive “bailout, recovery, stimulus plan” that President Obama is trying to funnel through the Senate.

It seems our idealistic president is getting a firsthand lesson in just how broken and partisan the political process is in Washington. On the other hand, for a guy that campaigned on change, very little “change” has taken place so far, the most glaring occurrence of this being the Tom Daschle debacle. I’m not saying that Obama won’t live up to his campaign promises, or that he doesn’t genuinely intend to change the way business is conducted in the nation’s capital, what I am saying; however, is that the change he promised ain’t gonna come easy. Which leads me to…

Dick Cheney Scares Me!
First of all, I’m afraid of any man that has balls big enough to let people call him Dick… Wait… that didn’t come out right… Never mind you get what I’m saying. Seriously, I actually know a couple of guys named Dick, and without exception they are all d*cks… I guess you do inherit the implied meaning of your name! Which would explain why Tiger is such an animal on the golf course and Rocky was so damn hard to knock out, but I digress…

This week Cheney made news with some comments that he made to political news site Politico.com. It appears that Mr. Cheney is still a little salty at President Obama for being born. When asked by the site about the Bush Administration’s policies pertaining to terrorism, Cheney stayed steadfast in his defense. He also had some biting words for the Obama Administration saying, “When we get people who are more concerned about reading the rights to an Al Qaeda terrorist than they are with protecting the United States against people who are absolutely committed to do anything they can to kill Americans, then I worry.”

I actually don’t disagree with much of Cheney’s premise. It is true that protecting the country’s security is, quote “a tough, mean, dirty, nasty business.” However, I do not feel that it is necessarily productive for a former V.P. to undermine the efforts of a new administration so soon. In the end, I guess one can’t be too surprised by Cheney’s apparent lack of candor, after all his name is Dick…

Finally…

Why Won’t She Just Go Away!
Sarah Palin is quoted in an Esquire interview as saying, “Bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie annoy me.” I agree, lies are bad and I understand why she would be so upset at any misrepresentation or insulting comments thrown her way. So I have come up with a fool proof method by which Sarah Palin can finally and effectively eliminate all that negativity and hatred that is thrown her way…

Go Away! That’s it. Just leave. No goodbyes needed. Simply grab Track, Trig, Bristol, Willow, and Piper and continue your life in obscurity… Just like things were before John McCain used you to ruin his political campaign.

Well that’s it for this week. I hope you’ve enjoyed our first official week in business… Look for these “Quik F’its” every Friday, and even more great full length content during the week!

Buena suerte y Adios!
