And yay Jersey Jynts.
I finally agree with the governor of my state about something, when he pointed out that the so-called New York Giants practice in New Jersey, play in New Jersey and most of the team lives in New Jersey. As he put it, the only thing New York about the team is the NY on their helmets.
As I've said before, I don't follow sports, but I do live in Jersey so basically can't avoid this one.
As for other Chinese New Year's news, did anyone see where Santorum was asked by a woman at a rally a question in which she referred to our president as a "confirmed Muslim" and he didn't correct her? McCain has proven himself to be a hypocrite and worse, but at least he had the sense and courage to tell a woman at one of his rallies when he was running for president that Obama wasn't a Muslim when she made the same charge.
This incessant rightwing propaganda that relies on either outright lying, misinformation, misdirection, or the sin of omission as the priests used to call it, is, to use a Gingrich word, despicable.
Though he used it against the press, but could just as well have used it to describe a lot if not most of his own behavior over the course of his being in the public eye.
Hope the belief that a dragon year is lucky turns out to be true for all of us.
