Dr. Horrible… Rock on!

I just heard about and watched a new internet movie by Joss Whedon and friends called “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog” starring Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie, etc), Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Slither), and Felicia Day (The Guild).  You have have also now heard about it. You now need to go watch it. Seriously. Go. Now. Click the picture.

Did he actually SAY that?!

Did he actually SAY that? … with a straight face?!

I just saw a video of President Bush talking about the Russia/Georgia situation. The speech was fraught with hypocrisy, but then he got to this line…

 Bullying and intimidation are not acceptable ways to conduct foreign policy in the 21st century.

In the immortal words of Phoebe Buffay, “Hello, Pot? This is kettle. You’re black!”

I’m thinking that the speechwriter had to have put that line in on a bet.

“Dude, I bet I can get him to say this with a straight face!”

“No way.”

“Betcha $50!”

“You’re on!”

I am just constantly astounded that George W. Bush is the man who is the “leader” of our country.

Here’s a link to the video: Bush addresses the Russia/Georgia issue
