Here is a quick news round up.
- So that bailout thing everyone was talking about? Yeah it failed. And people are screaming about Nancy P’s speech. McCain and company are saying that’s the reason it failed. Well. If any congressman changed their vote because they got mad over of a speech from Nancy Pelosi then they lack the mental clarity to be in Congress. End of story. But Congress is going to keep working on this. Hopefully. But some good news? The market shot up 200 points this morning.
- OH MY GOD, THE SCIENTISTS SAW SNOW FALLING ON MARS. Are aliens real?
- Have you ever read about those creepy purity balls? No? Click here. So basically, you go to a ball with your dad, sign a covenant with the big guy to be a good girl, and then your daddy signs something saying he’ll be your protector. Ugh. It tells the story of one girl who promised not to kiss until she got married. Wowie. What if her husband is a face licker? What if he’s a tongue strangler? Dumb. The headline of the story? “Virginity Pledges Can Work For Some”. HAHA. Not most. Moving on.
- And finally, shana tova, Jewish friends! Happy New Year! Kind of unfair that you get to have two new years and then eight days of presents instead of one, but I’m over it. In case you haven’t seen this, here is Sarah Silverman’s video asking Jewish kids to get their grandparents in Florida to vote for Obama. Kind of hysterical. Could be offensive. It’s Sarah Silverman.
