    The Aussies are gonna get murdered by South Africa. Had to leave the match very early last night, sadly, so all I know is that they got lucky taking Graeme Smith’s wicket. Peterson and Amla were having a blast just smacking the ball around and making the Australians’ lives generally miserable. Just waiting for the replay to be available to continue the fun and I look forward to the continuation tonight. Making tortilla chips and nacho dip for the occasion and everything.

    My wife really loves me to put up with this. Heh.

    Oh no, McConnell’s not rolling over for the Dems. Next thing you know, he’ll be rolling over for the Dems. They’re so predictable. I’d like to see them roll the Dems over.

    Well, that’s why we have to keep the pressure on these yoyos, and primary them when they go wobbly.

    Levin’s a blowhard bully. Still waiting for him to debate Tom Woods.
