Report from the RetardOsphere.

Just some things on Drudge that burned my thrusters today.

108-3 girls basketball rout raises questions

It's been called unsportsmanlike. It's been called ugly. The question now is whether Christian Heritage (Utah) High, which routed West Ridge (Utah) Academy, 108-3, in a girls basketball game last week, actually did anything wrong by blowing out an overwhelmed opponent.

There's almost 2000 comments on there right now, a few of which read like this one from RickP, 19 yr old from New Joisey "should never happen in any sport at any level.the coach should be terminated and barred from any and all youth sports "
The question that comes to my mind is,  "Are you kidding me?" One team is such rubbish that the other team can score two times a minute for four quarters, and the GOOD TEAM comes in for abuse?  That's freakin' retarded!

Somebody didn't get their kickback!

In a 2-1 ruling, the appellate panel said Emanuel does not meet the residency requirement of having lived in Chicago for a year prior to the election. The judges reversed a decision by the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, which had unanimously agreed that Emanuel was eligible to run for mayor.
I'd just like to say "Yay!"

General Bullmoose sells more cars in China than the USA!
General Motors Co. sold more cars and trucks in China last year than it did in the U.S., for the first time in the company's 102-year history.
Unlike Yanks, the Chinese don't have a problem buying cars from a corrupt government owned institution.

Renewed Push to Give Obama an Internet "Kill Switch"

A controversial bill handing President Obama power over privately owned computer systems during a "national cyberemergency," and prohibiting any review by the court system, will return this year.

Internet companies should not be alarmed by the legislation, first introduced last summer by Sens. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), a Senate aide said last week. Lieberman, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, is chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

Susan Collins should be kicked out of the Republican party for this one.  This thing is a disgrace!

Shut off your TV!

Last week, my colleague Brian Stelter reported that on Tuesday, the day after the pilot episode of "Skins" was shown on MTV, executives at the cable channel were frantically meeting to discuss whether the salacious teenage drama starring actors as young as 15 might violate federal child pornography statutes.

Senior executives are now considering additional editing for coming episodes, but that's a little like trying to lock the door after a naked 17-year-old has already busted out and gone running down the street, which is precisely what one of the characters does in Episode 3 — with a pill-enhanced erection, no less.

No really, shut it off.  Its worse than there's nothing on.  There is something on, and it could hurt you.  Hopefully this kiddie porno flick will hurt some poobahs at Viacom and MTV, who seem to really need a visit to banckruptcy court and/or jail to slap some respect into them.  If they can't do the right thing, at least we can make them deeply afraid to keep doing the wrong thing.

That's our trip to the RetardOsphere for today.  Now returning you to reality.
