I saw all the commercials so far, and this is my take: Animals- especially dogs- are really in. A-merry-ca is still in love with rap and music, and music they consider "hip" to sell things. Jar jar Binks will be back this summer in 3D .(Whhyyyy?!) And I saw Howard Stern doing his best Bull Connor imitation for another shameless NBC promotion of one of their shows.
That's pretty much it.
As for the game itself, I really have no rooting interest. The Iggles aren't there so I could care less who wins. I actually hate both of these teams.
Finally, let me end this post on a somewhat serious note. I say somewhat because the person I am going to write about is pretty much a joke.
Anyway, Newt says that his Oness and his government has launched an all out "assault" on religeon because of the HHS policy on birth control.
"Newt Gingrich upped his attacks against President Obama today over his administration's requirement that some religious hospitals offer co-pay-free birth control under the new health care law.
Gingrich's comments come after a week of outrage from the Catholic Church and his fellow GOP presidential candidates over the policy.
"This is a tremendous infringement of religious liberty," Newt Gingrich said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "Every time you turn around the secular government is shrinking the rights of religious institutions in America."
While the policy was proposed in August, the issue resurfaced last week after Catholic churches across America read letters from the church's leadership last Sunday condemning the administration's policy." [Source]
I won't get into why this is a false issue from a legal perspective, but trust me, it is.
Still, I have to wonder, where was all the outrage and righteous indignation when Catholic priests were molesting young boys?
That's right, there was none. Certainly not from the people we are hearing it from now.
Now back to the game.
