Why You Should Never Write A Political Blog

Ever since I wrote a couple of political blogs last week I’ve had people from Washington reading up on me. And the other day I was driving down the road and I changed into the middle lane and someone in a black sedan three cars behind me changed into the middle lane also. So I sped up into the far right lane, passed a truck then moved in the far left lane. But the same sedan pulled up three feet from my bumper.

I performed some evasive movements like a head fake and the triple deke, but nothing worked, he was glued to me like Hu Jintao to the TV during a Baywatch marathon.

I’m supposed to report for jury duty in the morning, but it might just be a huge conspiracy to capture me. I’m working on a disguise so I’m not recognized by “them” and tortured until I give up my secrets. Because of my dark complexion I’m creating a mixture of cottage cheese and soy milk to lighten my color.

Speaking of cottage cheese, Philip Roth’s new novel Indignation is out today. At 5pm PST he’ll be doing a reading which will be shown on live video at selected bookstores across the nation. I was disappointed Powells wasn’t listed.

Power to the people. Jesus for President.

The Olympics in Beijing and China’s Problems

The Olympics are about 100 days away. Because of China’s politics they have a lot of haters. Tibet and Darfur and restrictions of free speech and the environment are just a few examples of worldwide issues. If you were an Olympic sponsor would you continue to be a sponsor? If you were an Olympic athlete would you compete in China?

Update: via The Times. Police pull down a demonstrator along the route of the Olympic torch in London. Protesters advocating Tibet’s independence disrupted the torch’s path in London, Paris and San Francisco.
