When will they learn?


Basketball player Greg Oden is doing the apology tour for as Jim Rome put it, "taking pictures of his package and e-mailing them to his girlfriend." WHY would anyone do this? Can anyone justify doing this? As Jim Rome said today, being a soulmate or in love is still no reason.

Here is the article from the Associated Press.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP)—Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden(notes) is apologizing for nude photos that have surfaced on the internet. Oden says the pictures, taken with his cell phone and sent to a former girlfriend, were taken about 1 1/2 years ago. A friend told the 21-year-old Tuesday morning that the pictures were making the rounds on the internet.

“I would like to apologize to everybody: Portland, the fans, the organization,” Oden told reporters at the Blazers practice facility. “It was very embarrassing.”

Oden is out for this season after fracturing his left kneecap during a game against the Houston Rockets on Dec. 5. He averaged 11.1 points and 8.5 rebounds in 21 starts. The 7-foot-center was the No. 1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft out of Ohio State. He missed his rookie season after have microfracture surgery on his right knee.

What an ass.

Never has someone come across so publicly as being out for himself like John Edwards. As this guy campaigned, he vehemently denied he was having an affair as his wife was battling breast cancer. He eventually admitted to having the affair but denied he fathered a child with his mistress. Until now................................Edwards' confession would not have happened had one of his campaign aides taped a tv interview in which he said Edwards offered to pay him large sums of money to keep the fatherhood issue a secret.

How sad is it for the baby girl Edwards fathered. Can you imagine it if your father were to deny you? Again, like my title says, "what an ass."

Startling Revelations

Can someone please explain to me how anyone can still think Sarah Palin has a political future? Having to be briefed on World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War and the War on Terror is unreal. I'm glad 60 Minutes posted this online. Of course, the Republican supporters are saying in the comments online that "this is Sarah Palin bashing", "she's really a smart woman", and naturally, "60 Minutes is a liberal/partisan broadcast." I mean, come on! How bad is it when your v-p candidate needs to ask Senator Biden to call him "Joe" because she couldn't say his freakin' name??!!

Watch CBS News Videos Online
Oh, yes, these political insiders also said that if Palin runs for the Presidency in 2012, it would be catastrophic for the Republican Party. Hey, GOP supporters, please DO something for the better of our country...if you don't like the way Barack Obama is running our country, push someone forward who can do better. Unfortunately, Sarah Palin will not cut it. Please stop thinking Palin has it together. She does not. Because she has a twang and speaks kind of folksy, that does not compensate for her being clueless. You cannot get around that. "What magazines/newspapers do you read?" "Name a significant court case handled by the Supreme Court other than Roe v. Wade?" These are fairly basic questions that probably a decent percentage of Americans could answer. Under the bright lights of tv cameras, Sarah Palin could not handle either question.

What a tool.

Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas needs to go away...at least from basketball. The idiot pointed a gun at a teammate in the Wizards' lockerroom over a card game issue. Arenas says he was joking. He has apologized but then last night, his last night in uniform, he pointed both fingers at his teammates in a huddle as if he was shooting guns. The laughing from Gilbert's teammates in the huddle is as bad his joking around on the issue. It has been reported that Arenas has brought four guns to the Wizards' arena. And yet still, Arenas thinks this is funny. Well today, NBA Commissioner David Stern had enough and suspended the knucklehead indefinitely without pay. Nice job, Commish.
