NOTED T-BAGGING VICTIM REGGIE LOVE
Last night ESPN ran a feature on former Duke basketball player Reggie Love. Love is now the top personal assistant and “body man” for presidential candidate Barack Obama.
If the name sounds vaguely familiar you may remember Love from a series of embarrassing photos taken of him while he was passed out at a college fraternity party. The pictures are legendary among Duke haters. Careful, they’re way more NSFW than you might think. You can check out a couple of those photos: HERE
This makes Reggie Love undoubtedly the highest ranking political aide in U.S. history who has pictures of another man’s testicles dangling in his face available on the internet.
BARACK OBAMA AND REGGIE LOVE
It’s tough these days to be a drug addict. Even in the Biggest Little City in the World. The price of gas keeps going up. But not as much as the price of meth!
Today’s Reno Gazette- Journal has the story about the town’s meth supply drying up. The result? The cost of methamphetamines has gone from $50 a gram to $100 for a tenth of a gram. That’s a 2,000 % increase. What’s a poor meth addict to do?
The result is meth use is down 31 percent between June of 2007 and June of 2008.
Unfortunately heroin use is up 1,375 %.
Loser meth addicts have simply shifted to being loser heroin addicts. A tenth of a gram of heroin sells on the street for $10. By comparison, a tablet of OxyContin sells for $50 to $80.
After all, it’s not like drug addicts are going to quit using drugs. They just steal more stuff from me and you.
That explains the latest bill going through congress. Last year drug addicts stole between $750,000 and $1 million worth of copper wiring in the city of Las Vegas. Drug addicts steal the copper and sell it at recycling centers. Nevada Senator Harry Reid, a Democrat, introduced a bill that would give the city of Las Vegas $1 million to pay for the thefts.
Republicans seized on the opportunity and yelled, “Earmark!” (Also “pork barrel”and “He’s a witch!”) The result is the bill was knocked down to $400,000. Unfortunately, Reid is so ineffectual and useless that even though he’s the senate majority “leader” he can’t even get a lousy 400 grand in times of a 9 trillion dollar deficit.
CRYSTALS OF METH
JOHN “LOVE LIPS” EDWARDS
According to the gossip section of today’s New York Daily News, John Edwards’ mistress had a pet name for the philandering senator. It was “Love Lips.”
HEATH SHULER: SPORTS FAILURE
HEATH SHULER: POLITICAL SUCCESS
What next? Ryan Leaf for Secretary of State?
In an opinion piece for Saturday’s Ashville Citizen-Times, a Virginia politician has come out and endorsed former Washington Redskins quarterback Heath Shuler for vice president of the United States of America.
Shuler is known to sports fans as one of the biggest busts in NFL draft history. That hasn’t stopped former Virginia state legislator George W. Grayson from lobbying Barack Obama to select Shuler as his VP. Grayson says picking Shuler would help Obama in Virginia, Maryland and the Washington D.C. area for the election.
I’m not so sure about D.C. I don’t think Shuler has many fans there after his stint with the Redskins. Shuler is currently a U.S. Congressman from Virginia.
