The New Year? No Surprises.

I can't believe I haven't posted on this blog since December 17th of last year. But then again what's been happening? It's really more of business as usual in the entertainment industry or the presidential surprises really. What? No surprises? Yeah, that's what I said and I'm sticking to it.

In entertainment news....Britney is still a loon which is no surprise and the surprise that K-Fed is the responsible one is last year's news. It's also no surprise that more and more overpaid celebrities are in the rehab resorts. No surprise that the writer's strike is still going and really no surprise that people haven't noticed.

In the primaries....I'm not surprised that Fred Thompson dropped out. I'm not surprised that Rudy G. dropped out. And, I'm not surprised that Chuck Norris is still for Huckabee. How about the losers that dropped out on the Dem's side? No surprises. Also no surprise are the endorsements picked up by Obama. John Kerry and the Kennedy's? How could that surprise anyone? Neither Kerry (a Vietnam Veteran) nor the Kennedy's (did any go to 'Nam?) have any love for Hillary, no surprises.

How about the miserable excuse for election year politics called the Economic Stimulus Package? No surprise. C'mon is anyone really surprised that a bunch of polititians would throw around money that isn't theirs in order to placate the idiots that form the masses? Are they giving the money to the people that pay the most in taxes like business owners - No. Are they giving money to people that really don't pay taxes anyway - Yes! Is that a surprise - No? Anyone surprised that the media isn't pointing out that a really similar plan to stimulate the economy failed when President Hoover tried it in an era called "The Great Depression"?

I'll get back to you when there's something surprising or at least interesting.
