Sunday Roast: No…just no.


I’m with the guy on the right.

I have Christmas soaps on my kitchen table right now, but no one will see a single one of them before Thanksgiving.  I don’t even get all that excited about the holidays anymore, so it really shouldn’t matter, but I’m stubborn like that.

This is our daily open thread — What’s your holiday pet peeve?

  1. Hmm, I wonder if Shawna is in trouble. Notice how they modified her tweet. I know space was an issue, but given the show’s sinking ratings and popularity…

  2. George Will suggests we read this article in the Washington Post.

    Even If We Defeat The Islamic State, We’ll Still Lose The Bigger War

    As America’s efforts to “degrade and ultimately destroy” Islamic State militants extend into Syria, Iraq War III has seamlessly morphed into Greater Middle East Battlefield XIV. That is, Syria has become at least the 14th country in the Islamic world that U.S. forces have invaded or occupied or bombed, and in which American soldiers have killed or been killed. And that’s just since 1980.

    Let’s tick them off: Iran (1980, 1987-1988), Libya (1981, 1986, 1989, 2011), Lebanon (1983), Kuwait (1991), Iraq (1991-2011, 2014-), Somalia (1992-1993, 2007-), Bosnia (1995), Saudi Arabia (1991, 1996), Afghanistan (1998, 2001-), Sudan (1998), Kosovo (1999), Yemen (2000, 2002-), Pakistan (2004-) and now Syria. Whew.

    Will’s parting shot on the FNS panel today: “We need to be a little more clear-sighted about how much those guys in their Toyota pickup trucks with their machine guns riveted to the base of the truck threaten the country.”

    This was said after the rest of the panel roundly condemned Obama for being weak, and accusing him of military action only to support Dem candidates in the election, and that he will end our involvement as soon as the election is over.

    George Will is a conservative, but at least he’s a non-interventionist conservative.

    • AFAIC, our best move would be to simply come home, leave the M.E. completely to its own devices, and let the chips fall wherever they want. If Muslims want to live in an extremist Caliphate, ok. If they prefer a theocratic “democracy”, ok. Whatever. Just leave us out of it. Y’all stay there, we’ll stay here. If talks are ok, that’s ok, but no more occupation, no more terror attacks — by either side.

      If Poppy Bush would have stayed out of Kuwait the only loss would have been on the part of a few billionaires, and we the people would not have pissed away a couple of trillion on nothing. Why is that so difficult to accept?

      Call me an isolationist. Call me a socialist. Just don’t call on me to support the MIC. Let them eat cake. Etc.

      • Yep. I saw Kwivering Kelly do just that, and the panel echoed it, when they weren’t condemning Obama for causing the Ebola epidemic.

  3. I like Christmas, but would prefer to enjoy fall first. I’m in the no Christmas until after Thanksgiving camp. I’ll be looking for Z’s Christmas soaps.

    • Poor Columbus is nearly forgotten nowadays, until one tries to mail a package or sign up for health care…

  4. Raiders Leader Paul Revere Dead at 76

    Paul Revere, organist and ringleader of the long-running rock band the Raiders, passed away October 4th at his home in Idaho, the band’s official website revealed. Revere was 76. No cause of death was revealed, but TMZ reports that Revere (born Paul Revere Dick) battled with cancer over the past year. Thanks to his colorful clothing and infectious stage persona, Revere earned a reputation as “the madman of rock & roll.” He and his Raiders scored a handful of hits throughout their five decades together, including their anti-drug smash “Kicks.”

    I used to implore my mom to hurry us home so I could catch the show, Where The Action Is, which featured The Raiders as the unofficial ‘house band’.

    • Sarah Palin in mourning for the man who warned the British and that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.

    • Ah, those were the days… the grocer would give me one of those 2-cigarette packs of Marlboros for being a good boy…
      “Just don’t tell your Ma where you got them”

    • The kids won’t get to pump the swing to reach the moon!
      There must be a way to teach children not to run into a swing…we seemed to have learned that, and not to jump off a moving carousel/merry-go-round!

  5. Danica had a frustrating day that only turned sweet in the final 25 laps at Kansas. After getting down a lap due to no cautions happening before green flag pit stops around lap 50, she fought hard to be the first car one lap down all day. Each time, she’d get into place to get the lap back, the leaders would catch more cars and they would be ahead of her. One car, Landon Cassil, got two Lucky Dogs in a row after being on the lead lap, then getting down a lap ahead of her, to have the caution come out a few laps later. Finally, she got the caution she needed, and restarted 22nd, passing 6 cars at the end for a 16th place finish. She ran her fastest lap of the day on lap 244 of the 267 laps. She even passed Tony Stewart and held him off for the last ten laps.

  6. Beatles producer George Martin: “When The Beatles ‘Love Me Do’ was released, on Friday the 5th of October 1962, it was the day the world changed”

  7. (no one expected this outcome///)

    Faith-based remake of the Kirk Cameron Rapture saga is overwhelmed by three other thrillers, “Gone Girl,” “Annabelle” and “The Equalizer”

    “Left Behind,” Nicolas Cage‘s Biblical Rapture thriller, captured enough of the faith-based crowd at the box office this weekend, but its hopes of attracting mainstream crowds didn’t have a prayer.
