Mitch McConnell’s a schmuck. A movie about a Rubik’s Cube? And the craziest rock-climber ever

Let me get this straight. Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, declared the other day in a letter, signed by his Republican colleagues, that nothing will get done in the Senate, they will block everything else, until Obama and the Democrats agree to keep the tax cuts for everyone in America, including the wealthiest Americans.
This is the highest priority in the world, McConnell shrieks. This must be done before anything else! We must give rich people more money!
And our president, who I supported so strenously, nods and says, in effect, “Thank you sir, may I have another?”
The tax cuts for the wealthy are going to remain, Obama has all but said so.
So sick and tired of these wussy Democrats. Let’s see this President stand up and fight. Let’s see him call out these frauds, these Republicans who claim to “speak for the American people,” when the only people they’re really speaking for are those making a quarter of a million dollars or more.
But Obama won’t. You know it and I know it. All he wants to do is compromise, compromise with people who want nothing more than to destroy him.

So he’ll compromise, which in this case means, basically, bending over and taking it.
And one more dagger goes into the heart of those of us who believed this guy would be different.

**So I can’t believe I missed this story when it first came out a few weeks ago. I thought it was a joke at first, but apparently it’s real. In yet another sign that Hollywood has completely run out of ideas, Creative Arts Agency has signed The Rubik’s Cube as a “client.” And plans to make a movie about it.
Hey, how about an instructional film? I never could solve the damn thing. And it always made me mad that my sister could.

**Finally, if you think you know someone who’s a little nuts, a little bit of an adrenaline junkie, they’ve got nothing on this dude. He does backflips, 99 feet in the air, into some water.
Yeah, no problem. The good stuff starts at :45.
