I Am For Reeeeeal

Well that was certainly an interesting start to the playoffs, wasn't it? I must say the Rangers victory on Caps home ice took me by surprise.

Meanwhile, I hope any of our readers who went to the big Tea Party last night found their way home safely, whether you took that wicked public transit thing MARTA or drove on one or more of our heavily-subsidized-by-government-tyranny roads. Jeebus knows using MARTA or roads to get to and from a Hannitizing Teabagging Party is the best way to stick it to those tax-and-spend libtards!

Now then. On to the playoff games tonight. Your editor is fidgeting nervously about the Ducks-Sharks game, but first we must examine what should be an exciting revival of a good old-fashioned rivalry:


Don Cherry will be going crazy tonight.



This will be an interesting one. The Red Wings are bitchin', but Chris Osgood is a wet blanket and might screw it all up. Then again, the Jackets have nothing like the Red Wings' firepower...then again, Ken Hitchcock will just force his team to play the trap and shut down Datsyuk and co. like nobody's business. Not to mention Steve Mason, etc.

Another entertaining match-up should be


Sweet Jesus.

Blackhawks are more talented, but the Flames are big and mean and built for the post-season.

And finally:


The Sharks' recent play has been less than inspiring, and the Ducks were absolutely phenomenal down the stretch. Nonetheless, the Sharks are way deeper and more talented. Mark my words: this will be a memorable, hate-filled 7-game series.

I was listening to that song this morning. Weird...

We never did see anything like that on the "Red Mile."

I don't think any libertarians are against roads and public transportation.

No, we certainly didn't see any of that on the Red Mile. They must have been hiding the good stuff from us invading Americans.

So through one game of each series, and only 2 teams that I picked to win have taken the first game. Well, I never claimed to be good at predicting winners.

"I don't think any libertarians are against roads and public transportation."

I'll give you they probably enjoy having roads, but you've got to be kidding about public transportation. But what libertarians and other hard-line economic rightists never seem to have an answer for is just how roads and highways--which are by their very nature public things--could be funded outside of some kind of government spending. Which means some level of taxation.

I'm also curious as to how many of the Teabaggers would identify themselves as "libertarian."
