And if Barack actually gave a damn about peace and the Constitution, he might have some enthusiasm to his campaign. As it is, Tom Hayden's taken to playing Mrs. Barack Obama online and rushing out to defend 'her' man. Which is what Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Tom Hayden Democrats" captures.
Tom Hayden's such an idiot. Find any place his awful article has been posted and you will find people calling him out.
And I just realized what I'm going to write about tonight. It's a topic I've never written about before. But first, the following worked on Third Sunday:

Now. New topic.
My daughter likes silly movies (that's not the topic) and she had on A Night At The Roxbury this weekend (well, my brother did but she was laughing at it).
And that reminded me of the first time I saw the film.
I was in middle school and dating this complete bitch named Donna. She is a bitch, she was one and I won't pretend any other way. I hate passive aggressive people and that was one strike against her.
Then there's the fact that she was never wrong.
So this movie was out on VHS (remember those?) and I didn't know the characters really but thought it would be funny. So Donna tells everyone that it's about a club in Connecticut and everyone's going, no, it's Los Angeles. She told everyone they were wrong.
And she was wrong.
And so we watch the movie in Tony's basement and even then we're wrong. After the movie's over, we're wrong and not only are we wrong but she says the movie is too.
That's how she was and how she still is. I just can't stand people who can never admit they're wrong. It's a rare day that I don't admit I'm wrong several times in one day. That's part of life, being wrong.
So Donna was just a pain in the ass. She was always like, "Did you used to go with ___? What was she like? Do you like her now? Do you like her better than me?" And it was all so annoying because this was like a daily thing.
And she had a fit if I was talking to a friend -- a friend who was a girl or a friend who was a boy. She was so jealous of Tony. He's my best friend. We were born within weeks of each other. We live next door to each other, our dads were best friends going back to elementary school, our moms became best friends in high school. And Donna would be having fits about that.
She also thought she was some great artist. One time, we were all doing sketches just to kill time and the art teacher said mine was the best and Donna never forgave me. And then we had English together and she had a fit every time I got a question right. The whole class knew it. They'd watch for it. They knew she'd start muttering and then cussing. And she would. It became this whole big joke with the class (that she never found funny).
So thankfully, we finally broke up after a few months. And that was for the best because the only thing more f**ked up than Donna was her hideous family. Her mother was a widow who worked for the FBI and was just so irritating. Then there were her crazy sisters which included one who swore that she was possessed. That happened after we broke up or I would have had to be around for all of that. The crazy woman would bite herself on her hands and arms and claim this was proof that Satan had possessed her. That whole family was nuts.
