The great divider

Glenn Beck admits to regrets at helping "tear the country apart" instead of offering thoughts on our uniting principles, and Ed Morrissey reacts:

Extra points

My first thought about this was "No way, leave the damn game alone," but then I decided I was being too reactonary. Everything changes, so why not football?

The NFL is reportedly considering abolishing the extra point after touchdowns as part of its scoring system.

BHO's TV shows

Probably shouldn't read too much into this, but it is interesting: When President Obama settles in for a little TV watching, he prefers "anything edgy, with hints of reality":

By his own accounts, Mr. Obama is drawn in his spare time to shows like HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and “Boardwalk Empire,” the kind of heavy, darkly rendered television that echoes the sadness and strife that make up so much of his workday.

Talk, talk, talk

Apparently some shakeups are coming at NBC News:

Particularly distressed by the changes is the DC bureau team, whose duties include providing political coverage to “Nightly News with Brian Williams” and Sunday talk show “Meet The Press.”

Ducks and cover

When even a famous gay atheist like Camille Paglia takes aim at at A&E's suspension of "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson, you know it's destined to go down as one of the most epic hysterical overreactions in history:

"I am highly tolerant of your right to think and say anything you want to, just as long as I agree with it."

Well, you’ve touched on it to a degree. He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah. And the whole ObamaCare, or whatever you want to call it, the Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.

God's will

Pat Robertson is getting stranger and stranger:

Televangelist Pat Robertson on Wednesday struggled to understand why homosexuality was no longer considered a mental illness, but said that he approved of gender reassignment surgery.


"All phases"

Watching the Colts game Sunday was such a painful experience that I couldn't post about immediately. Now that time has dimmed the memory and I can almost get back to an "oh, well, it's only a game" mentality, I can finally say what I think happened (if the opinion of a mere fan counts for anything).

It's a variation of this:
