Taking a stand for a place to sit?

Blog Guy, nobody has better connections to the 2012 political campaigns than you do. I’ve heard that President Obama has chosen his official campaign slogan for the presidential race.

I presume it’s “Yes we can,” since that worked so well for him in 2008?

Suddenly, it’s GREAT to be Ronald!

Photo

Blog Guy, awhile back you showed us lots of spam you were getting by mistake. It was meant for a guy named RONALD Basler. He seemed to be having a pretty rough time, what with debt, depression, a leaky roof… Have you checked on him lately?

It’s kind of you to ask. I’m still getting tons of this guy’s spam, but his fortunes seem to have improved.

Feeding conspiracy theories?

Photo

Many people are linking through Yahoo to a photo you’re running of someone in boots walking on the US flag in Zuccotti Square.

It’s a hackneyed cliche, of course, that protestors hate their country. In this case, the photo seems to have been faked. I am not a Photoshop expert, but the light looks wrong, the edges look wrong, the shadows under the boots seem wrong.

Well, time to slap the old vodka bottle!

Blog Guy, I know you’re an expert on other cultures, and I have a question.

I just heard an Eastern European expression, “slapping the old vodka bottle.” Jeez, I’m really hoping that’s not a euphemism for…

Pushing shakes for a sheikh?

Photo

OMG, Blog Guy! A few days ago, in an item about Paris Hilton helping open a shopping mall in Poland, you said, “Coming soon, Kim Kardashian appears at a milkshake bar opening in Dubai,” and here she is!

Who would have thought you were serious about that?

Come on, it wasn’t hard to predict. I mean, the woman was married less than two months ago, she is thought to be the highest-paid reality star on television, so why wouldn’t she go to Dubai to promote a milkshake bar? It just makes sense.

Opinionated rant?

Photo

It’s extremely disturbing when I come here for news and I find articles like this being promoted here. I left CNN (for the most part) and came to Reuters because I believe you are a better source for news. I strongly believe you are less biased, less opinionated, and just an overall better news source.

However, when I find posts like the one, it makes me question my decision. Promoting, and allowing, any opinionated rant claiming people are better based on their race or gender (in this case gender) is disgusting to see.
