Eli’s Obsession With The Ask.com

I think I really would have been perfectly happy without ever knowing that Multi Medium 1.0 is the #2 Ask.com search result for why does it hurt when i use a dildo.

Awk-ward.

Quien Es Muy Loco?

Man, this is a tough call.  In the red corner, you’ve got Michele Bachmann:

Today on Glenn Beck’s radio show, Bachmann declared that the U.S. will soon be moving to “give up the dollar as our currency and we would just go with a One World currency.” Such action, she warned, would mean the U.S. as a country would be “no more”:

(…)
BACHMANN: What that means is all of the countries in the world would have a single currency. We would give up the dollar as our currency and we would just go with a One World currency. … If we give up the dollar as our standard, and co-mingle the value of the dollar with the value of coinage in Zimbabwe, that dilutes our money supply. We lose control over our economy. And economic liberty is inextricably entwined with political liberty. Once you lose your economic freedom, you lose your political freedom. And then we are no more, as an exceptional nation, as we always have been. So this is imperative.

Bachmann claimed that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said he was “open” to the One World currency. (In reality, he only said he was open to changes in the IMF special drawing rights, and reaffirmed his commitment to the dollar.) Beck warned that speaking out about the global currency gets one labeled a “kook,” but Bachmann brushed off such concerns, saying she’s been called that “throughout [her] political career”:

BACHMANN: Well, Glenn, I have experienced that throughout my political career, being labeled a kook. It just happened again in a big story in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. But all we have to do is point to the treasury secretary on tape, on camera. This is not Michele Bachmann being a kook. This is our treasury secretary on tape and on camera.

Man, I’d hate to see what Michele Bachmann being a kook would look like.

…And in the other red corner, you’ve got John Shimkus:

It’s plant food … So if we decrease the use of carbon dioxide, are we not taking away plant food from the atmosphere? … So all our good intentions could be for naught. In fact, we could be doing just the opposite of what the people who want to save the world are saying.

John Shimkus runs rings ’round us logically!  Because us crazy tree-hugging liberals want to BAN CO2 COMPLETELY!

I think I’m gonna have to give Shimkus the win here, but Bachmann totally gets the Lifetime Achievement Award for crazy.

New Definition Of Generosity

They’re like Jesus or something:

Bank executives indicated they are willing to hold onto U.S. government aid to help stabilize the financial system and pull the economy out of recession.

Way to take one for the team, guys.  Thanks so much – you shouldn’t have.

No, really, you shouldn’t have.
