    Good quote from Juli’s review – I done told y’all that Ronnie killed it!

    BTW, Robbie Fulks also has high praise in the same blog entry for David Grier, who richly deserves it.

    Wow, most of those “Top Whatever” album lists totally suck! Why do all these other people have such poor taste in music compared to me?…(lol)

    Roughstock has beaten you guys to the punch with a link to the new Taylor Swift related Christmas song “Merry Swiftmas” from Evan Taubenfeld! This is just sooo much better than Tyler Dean’s pathetic “Taylor Swift” and has a great sense of humor to boot. It even made Taylor smile when it was tweeted to her:

    So EW includes the Ditzy Twits’ “Home” in their Top 10 albums and “Brokeback Mountain” in their Top 10 Movies of the decade. There seems to be an Obamavoter undercurrent happening at EW….

    I just watched the Chaffee Kid video and its a hoot! Cheer up John, Washington D.C is full of a cheap executive and Demoncrap politicians “playing by the rules” these days! Sadly the rules they are following so well spring from Karl Marx’s “Das Kapital”, “The Antonio Gramsci Reader”, and Odumbo’s personal favorite Saul Alinsky’s’ “Rules For Radicals” (among other choice leftist doctrine staples). In fact Odumbo has followed the rules so well he went to Norway to receive his Nobel “Marxist Piece of Sh*t” Award this week! That’s just awesome….

    Hey Rick, just thought I’d let you know you give us Republicans a bad name by acting so immaturely. Thought you should know.

    I’ve always felt like Rick’s comments were made in jest, as true to his belief system(and mine) they may be. Of course, I’m not John Rich, so I’ll let Rick speak for himself on the issue.
