This week's pet peeves - Political Ads, Clarence Thomas' wife and James Harrison

I might have been a little rant-y this week but we lived and learned, right? We can all join hands and hum This Little Light of Mine... right after I vent a little...

1. Politics as usual. Jesus be Election Day already. Seems to me the ads are just a little more vicious these days. Maybe not but it certainly feels that way. Rick Perry and his crew have just gone all in on the anti-Obama and Pelosi ads. I've started taking notes. Every single candidate who bashes Obama (including the idiot who wants to get elected so he can repeal Obama's healthcare plan here in Texas), I most assuredly won't be voting for any of them. I really dislike the negative slash-n-burn ads, they tick me off. I wonder what will happen to some of these candidates who get elected and then need the backing of the President? How's that gonna work out? Umm-hmm. Good luck with that. Some burned bridges never get re-built. 

2. What in the pure-D hell was Virginia Thomas thinking? Old girl (Crazy Clarence's wife) called up Anita Hill's office and said "Hey, let's let bygones be bygones. But before we do that, how about you apologize?" Here's her quote:

“Good morning Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas,” it said. “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband.”

Ms. Thomas went on: “So give it some thought. And certainly pray about this and hope that one day you will help us understand why you did what you did. O.K., have a good day.”

Say WHAT now? First of all, I'm still waiting on Clarence to apologize for playing Anita dirty all those years ago. I was always #TeamAnita and 100% sure that Clarence tried to get the hot chocolate, Anita said hell naw and he acted a fool. I'm just saying. Look at Clarence, look at Anita. Nuff said. Secondly, what exactly does Gin-Gin think went down between those two? And lastly, why is she worried about it all these years later? Clarence - get yo' girl some meds and take away the phone.

3. James Harrison is an idiot. So perennial poster-boy for failing Anger Management 101, James Harrison, is a defensive player for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Last weekend he made catastrophic hits (including one blatant helmet to helmet hit) on (not one but two) Cleveland Browns receivers. Since it's not his first time unloading questionable hits, the NFL fined him $75,000. He dropped a few brilliant quotes like: "I don't want to see anyone injured," Harrison said, "but I'm not opposed to hurting anyone." Yo no comprendo.

He announced that this was way unfair (boo to the hoo) and said he was gonna retire. Deuces, dude. Then I remembered that this is the SAME ninja who declined to go to the White House to meet President Obama after the Steelers won the SuperBowl in 2009. For real though? Now he's decided he'll probably stick around. Oh? Mayhaps you figured out that your fall back job isn't going to net you millions of dollars a year to smack people all day? Yeah, I respectfully request that you GO. SIT. DOWN.

That's all I've got. I feel better now. What are your thoughts on the ugly slant political ads are taking? What in the world was Ginny thinking (or drinking)? Can we collectively tell James that no one likes him? Any other peeves of the week you want to share? The floor is yours...
