He's worked hard for the money

Nevada Democratic Senator Harry Reid had to apologize after it was revealed that back in 2008, he described President Obama as speaking "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." I don't see what the big deal is. I don't speak with an Oriental accent, unless I choose to. So solly, folgive-a me.

However, to me the money quote is from Reid's apology. He goes through the usual bullshit like "some of my best friends are black" and "Tyler Perry is really funny." Here's my favorite, though:
Moreover, throughout my career, from efforts to integrate the Las Vegas strip and the gaming industry to opposing radical judges and promoting diversity in the Senate, I have worked hard to advance issues.
What does that mean? What issues? What kind of radical judges? Radical in what way? What kind of integration? Are there more black girls walking around with quarters? Maybe more hispanics changing the bed linens? Also, the two most famous strip clubs in Las Vegas - Palomino and Girls of Glitter Gulch - are not located on The Strip. Food for thought?

Anyway, back on topic - Harry Reid is the epitome of uselessness the Democratic Party has come to represent in the 21st Century.

Movies on my mafa radar

Seasons of the Witch

Why I want to see it: Looks to be a kick ass action-horror film. Despite the hate, I like Nicolas Cage...or at least his potential to make really cool movies.



Why I want to see it: It actually looks like an enjoyable romantic comedy, with the added bonus of violence.



Kick Ass

Why I want to see it: I'm a sucker for superhero movies, especially ultra-violent ones that don't take themselves seriously.



Also, Nic Cage.
