Former Browns head coach Butch Davis still gets a bad rap here, but here's fact: The Browns' four best players - linebacker Andra Davis, tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. and defensive backs Sean Jones and Leigh Bodden - are all acquired by Davis.Take that Browns fans, Butch Davis got this team it's only good players. I'm also inferring that Phil Savage sucks! Never mind the fact that Butch Davis used to start Ross Verba (on a regular basis!!) and thought Kelly Holcomb could be a starting QB. Never mind that he wasted draft picks. He got four, count 'em, four guys right. Eat it.
Sorry, but the newest Nike TV ad featuring James - in which he plays multiple roles a la Eddie Murphy in "The Nutty Professor" - is among the worst commercials we've seen all year.And fuck you too Cavs. For no reason at all, I'm going to rip on those Nike commercials from LeBron James, the only superstar in modern Cleveland sports. I know many of you like these, and a lot of people think they're pretty good and amusing. But no, they suck! And you suck for liking them! You're all stupid. I'm Roger Brown! LALALALA
Roger Brown isn't all that pissed me off, for some dumb reason I read the letters to the editor everyday. I am a moron.
and this one:
Military intelligence is more than evident
Before John Kerry shares any more of his unique in sights regarding military personnel, he should consider the following facts:
Of the 18- to 24-year-old enlistees in the armed services, 99.2 percent have a high school diploma or equivalent GED.
For 18- to 24-year-old civilians, the corresponding figure is 79.4 percent.
The mean reading level of an 18- to 24-year-old enlistee is 11th grade.
The mean reading level for 18- to 24-year-old civilians is 10th grade.
More than 95 percent of all active military officers graduated from college; more than 38 percent have an advanced degree (i.e., master's or doctorate).
Enlistees age 18 to 24 have significantly higher cognitive aptitude than the 18- to 24-year-old civilian population, as measured by scores on the military's enlistment test.
When like comparisons are made between 18- to 44-year-old enlistees and their civilian counterparts, the results are strikingly similar.
These brave, intelligent young men and women had plenty of other options, but they chose the military. The world is a safer place because they did.

I'm going to go insane. I really am. Either these people are ignorant or they are willfully lying. The guy said something dumb, but it wasn't supposed to come out that way. I mean, if we applied this to every time Bush misspoke:
Showing his true colors
John Kerry's condescending statements belittling dedi cated soldiers, those serving and those who have served, in Iraq (and Afghanistan) is appalling. Again Kerry demonstrates his incompetence as a Democratic leader and his defensiveness when called to account for his remarks. Kerry's statements and his response to criticism reflect his obsession with his hate for the GOP and George Bush and his desire to get even.What is the real agenda of Kerry and many in the Democratic leadership? Responsible voters need to think about the consequences of having a Democratic leadership in Congress that includes an obsession with a return to power and control. What is their plan and strategic direction?
The real answer is that the electorate should wait and see. What is their plan for taxes and government control? The real answer is more of each, but that cannot be announced. What will be the impact on the economy and its long-term viability? There is no answer from the Democrats because the economy is robust and unemployment is low.
Kerry's elitist view and that of many in the Democratic leadership make it apparent that they have not learned any lessons from the past.

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."OMG!!! Why is President Bush thinking of new ways to harming America!!! He should apologize to all Americans. The Republicans should have to go on the record to say if they agree with President Bush's goals of harming America!! This should be the top story on CNN.com for 3 days.
See, a mistake. Kind of humorous. But no one really believes Bush is actively working up new ways to harm our country. But John Kerry botches a joke and CNN goes to fucking Defcon 9.
Two things strike me about this whole mess. 1) I'm glad the Plain Dealer chose to run those two letters and none by someone who, you know, is actually informed. 2) It's great that Bush and the Republicans have a plan for ending John Kerry's political career, it's just too bad they don't seem to have a plan for anything else.
