Sunday Clutter
Monday Night Clutter: Van Halen Conquers Boston

Monday Clutter

Hi everyone,

Is this thing on?  Can you hear me?  Oh what a night.  My ears are still ringing from the Van Halen concert, and it took me a few hours after the show to actually get to sleep, so we're going to be looking at a large coffee intake today.  I'll have my thoughts on the show later in the day, but for now, help yourself to a large DD, and let's start off the week with a little Monday Clutter.

A horrible story in Afghanistan as a soldier is accused of massacring 16 civilians.  That's just what we need, to give the Taliban an excuse to feel emboldened.  It's time to go.

The GOP has made it clear over the last few weeks that they don't think they need any women voters this fall.  That being the case, President Obama will be happy to have every one of them support him.

Rick Santorum admits that the improving economy hurts the GOP.  That's not going to make him a lot of friends in his own party.

Calls continue to grow for Newt Gingrich to drop out of the race so Rick Santorum can take on Mitt Romney one on one.  Pandering to conservatives by floating the idea of putting Rick Perry on the ticket isn't going to save Newt at this point.

Could the Affordable Care Act save Medicare?  If so, it's just another reason for the GOP to hate health care reform so much.  Few things seem to keep Republicans awake at night as much as government programs that help the elderly.

Can Rush Limbaugh fight off a challenge to his talk radio empire by Mike Huckabee?  I don't know, Huckabee's got one potential asset that Limbaugh can't touch:  Chuck Norris.  If he signed on as a co-host, it would be game over for the big guy.  All Norris would have to do is stare at the radio, and millions of viewers would change stations.

"Pink slime" is in 70% of ground beef at the supermarket?  Oh that's just nasty.  What's that you say?  The former government official who decided that pink slime doesn't need to be included on the label has now made over $1 million from being on the board of the company that makes the stuff?  I'm sure that's just a coincidence, right?

LinkedIn could be a treasure trove for hackers, so don't accept requests from people you don't know. 

I doubt there's anything the MBTA can really do about it, but people who take up multiple seats really do need a kick in the pants.

It was a rough day for the Boston Bruins who lost 5-2 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.  When goalie Tim Thomas gets yanked after the first period, it's a clear sign that things aren't going your way. 

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees said he had nothing to do with the team's scandalous bounty program.  That makes sense, because who's he going to hit?

While Tim Tebow continues to pray that Peyton Manning won't sign with the Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts free agent wide receiver Reggie Wayne thinks he and Manning should both go hang out in Miami instead.

Is there some sort of basketball tournament starting tomorrow? 

Happy 64th birthday to singer James Taylor.

Does anyone want to see, "Jeff, Who Lives at Home," the new movie starring Jason Segal and Ed Helms, with me?  It looks pretty good.


Okay kids, that's going to do it for now.  I think we'll let birthday boy James Taylor and Oscar the Grouch take us out with their classic, "Whenever I see your Grouchy Face," for today's, "Song of the Day."

Thanks for stopping by, everyone.  It was great to see you as always.  I'm off to make another pot of coffee.  Have a good day, and come back again for more fun soon.  Until next time, that's the Clutter, and we are outta here.
