Sunday Funday: I Am Spartacus Edition

Climate change may do in the sport of snow skiing. However, a friend pointed me to this hilarious take on skiing:

Kirk Douglas died Wednesday as most of you know. Douglas was a dyed in the wool liberal who championed many liberal causes throughout his life. I am not a huge movie connoisseur. However many years ago I was captivated by one of Douglas’ lesser known pics “Paths Of Glory.” This was an anti-war picture made at a time when there were no such things. It was made in 1957, just a few years before the debacle in Viet Nam. I can vaguely remember it now. Al I can recall was that this was a picture that certainly must have popped some overblown so-called patriots of the times.

It is also Black History Month. Could there have been any bigger insult to black America than giving a presidential medal of Freedom to a bigot like Rush Limbaugh. Will the Chosen One come up with another medal to give Limbaugh during Women’ History Month next month? After all, besides being one of America’s biggest bigots, Limbaugh (along with the Chosen One) occupies a top rung among America’s misogynists.

Did Nancy Pelosi say the Chosen One was SEDATED during his speech Tuesday night? Oh, the scandal! Funny that the Commander-in-Chief doesn’t have to take a drug test before punching in.
