Scariest Headline Of The Year

This certainly came as a surprise to me…

Eli up for attorney general

Um, shouldn’t someone be calling me or something? Do I need to update my resume?

The Company You Keep

One of the many hurdles that must be cleared by any candidate vying for the Republican nomination, surely one of the most important is convincing Republican primary voters that you have the same kind of keen eye for talent and integrity as Manly Decisive Hero God-Man George W. Bush.

I think Rudy has jumped out to an early lead.

Tackling Terror

Jason Elam goes from special teams to special ops teams:

Jason Elam, the kicker for the Denver Broncos, has teamed up with his pastor to write a book titled – no joke – Monday Night Jihad. Apparently the NFL is under attack. Here is an excerpt (via withleather)…

A story that combines all the action of a first-rate spy thriller with the intrigue of professional sports. After a tour of duty in Afghanistan, Riley Covington is living his dream as a professional linebacker when he comes face-to-face with a radical terrorist group on his own home turf. Drawn into the nightmare around him, Riley returns to his former life as a member of a special ops team that crosses oceans in an attempt to stop the source of the escalating attacks.

But time is running out, and it soon becomes apparent that the terrorists are on the verge of achieving their goal: to strike at the very heart of America.

How sad is it that my first thought was to wonder when the football-star-turned-soldier gets shot by his own men, triggering a massive government coverup?

I’m also curious as to whether the book limits itself to mere scaremongering (Terrorists could strike at any time! We must have a strong manly Republican president to protect us!), or if it makes the broader case for the indispensable value of torture and ‘tapping as well. Obviously, I can’t wait to read it…
