Rosie’s Very Hurried Six In The Morning

1 THE MOST IMPORTANT THING A MAN MUST LEARN TODAY Research shows what a woman’s brain actually looks like when she orgasms. (The Guardian)

2 YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK Since Prime Minister Fattypuff came along, there’s a growing trend of Nixonian tactics by the civil service. For example, Aboriginal Affairs is running its own spy agency. (APTN)

3 HE ALSO MAINTAINS IT WASN’T JFK WHO WAS SHOT IN DEALEY PLAZA, IT WAS BING CROSBY Historians are losing count of the number of factual inaccuracies in Bill O’Riely’s biography of Abraham Lincoln. I recall a Bob and Rae sketch about a historian who wrote that Lincoln took a Buick to his second inauguration … maybe Bill gave that guy a job. (Huffington Post)

4 ALL HAIL THE GOLDEN CALF WHILE YOU’RE AT IT The Roughriders’ Mighty Wurlitzer of propaganda gets ready to tell us that Brendan Taman, a loser who couldn’t find American players as the Winnipeg Blue Bomber GM and didn’t have the moral authority to challenge anybody in the Rider front office last year, is going to be The Greatest Thing Ever For The Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2012. (

5 BUT YEAH, WE GOT A CONTRACT, RIGHT … RIGHT? The U.S. Congress considers scrapping the F-35. This would be a good time to get out of the deal, but … hold on, Peter McKay is too busy watching Top Gun again. (The Globe and Mail). Extra moment of snark here (prairie dog).

6 WE ARE … PENN STATE! SOME OF ARE … PEDOPHILES! Jerry Sandusky gets interviewed by Bob Costas, and his talk about the charges he faces illustrates why the first rule a defense attorney gives to his/her client is this: Shut. Up. Despite this, a Pennsylvania judge, connected to Sandusky’s charity, grants Sandusky jaw-droppingly lenient bail conditions. (Deadspin) And former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno’s real estate dealings have some thinking that there’s more to his side of the story of this scandal than meets the eye. (Post Game)

  1. Disclosure or sign of mental illness: I enjoy both the prairiedog blog and Mr. Pedersen’s blog. Maybe it is the fact that both are full of hyperbole?

    Referencing #4 above, the dog suggests Mr. Pedersen, aka The Roughriders’ Mighty Wurlitzer of Propoganda, sez “Brendan Taman….is going to be the Greatest Thing Ever For the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2012” in a link to a story on Really? Phrases like “Taman, a Saskatoon product, has plenty on his plate as he attempts to clean up the mess left behind from a 5-13 season” and, in relation to hiring a new coach and extending his tenure with the team, Taman has a “one-shot deal to turn this thing around and get a new contract for himself, and to restore credibility to this franchise.” I don’t bleed green, but as a fan, it’ll be interesting times yet again in Riderville.

    “Greatest Thing Ever”? Sometimes you guys sound about as accurate as the commentators on ole Mr. Wurlitzer of Propoganda’s blog. Still, I take my meds, visit both sites regularly, and hope that one day this bipolar love will even itself out. Oh, and where can I find that golden calf?

  2. hi
    #2 1 more reason to never get on the fecebook bandwagon.

    #5 We build the Canada-Arm, but can’t build jets,( not referring to Winterpeg’s team ),here? Not even using our own Sea-Kings helicopters in tech schools for research into how not to build a helicopter. FN Diefenbaker destroying the Arrow project. Visionless Ass.

    #6 Anbody else, watch South Park last night,( Wednesday )?
