Tactical Nuke: Friday, 29 June, 2012

The House has officially found Eric Holder contemptible. They also officially declared him in Contempt of Congress for withholding documents during the Fast and Furious investigation.

Holder responded that it was "regrettable" and that this was motivated by politics during an election year. Hey, he must've been reading mah blog post about that!

Breaking news! Raphael Nadal lost last night to a 100th ranked Czech player at Wimbledon. I'm really trying to care, but it just isn't working. Tennis is one of those "gentleman's sports", which is code word for "boring". It would be better if Tennis was a contact sport.

Scratch is technically a contact sport. Tennis would be better if it was a collision sport, like American football. Then it would be cool, and they could play it at better venues than Wimpytown, England.

Charlie Sheen is apparently quitting acting after whatever it is he is doing now. Funny, I thought he quit acting a long long time ago...

Another headline: Sandusky likely to receive pension, despite child abuse. This is not news when many public union workers also are likely to receive pensions, despite taxpayer abuse.

I think my favorite interpretation of Vivaldi's Winter is played by a gal named Mari Samuelsen. I suppose it isn't the best "technical" example, but she treats a violin like Jimmy Paige does an axe.

 Just throwing that out there...


  1. Dang. Guess I can wipe that Nadal match off the DVR now.

    I'm not a big tennis nut or anything, but Nadal's usually fun to watch. Until he chokes & goes out early, which he's been doing way too much of lately unless he's playing on clay in France.

    1. Tennis isn't that bad honestly, but I don't care for the quiet, uppity atmosphere. If they would get loud and blare AC/DC or something between sets and serve nachos and hotdogs, then it would be better.

      It's more about presentation when it comes to tennis, not the sport itself.
