Apology to Rove?, The Phils, and Sexually-Abusive Latino Janitors

David Broder of the Washington Post says that many journalists owe Karl Rove an apology, but don't hold your breath: Good for Broder, who proves that you can be a liberal without being completely ass over tea kettle insane.


The Phils are killing me for the second straight year. They do everything they have to do to claw back into a wildcard race, suck me in to following them on a day to day basis, and constantly torture me by getting hot, coming to within a game, but never quite closing the gap. But I do know one thing - although the Padres now hold a 3 game lead over the Phils, they have another thing coming if they think they will win the wildcard by more than 1 game - not going to happen. So take that, Padres fan(s?).


So the Wife of Hatcher is giving the twins the refresher on inappropriate adult behavior now that school has started again.

Wife of Hatcher: "Now if any adult does something to you and tells you not to tell your parents because they'll be mad, you tell us right away and we'll promise not to be mad at you."

Joe and Bill: "Any adult, mom?"

Wife of Hatcher: "Yes, any adult."

Joe and Bill: "But all of the janitors at school speak Spanish. If they told us not to tell you because you'd be mad we wouldn't know what they were saying, so how would we know to tell you?"

Wife of Hatcher: "Um, Um, don't worry about the janitors."

The upshot is that my kids are free game to the Latino janitors unless they speak some broken English. But we started Spanish lessons yesterday, starting with the great Fletch line: "F*%$ing taco."

Phillies have 10 games left with Florida. Even though they're 6-3 against Florida this year, they've never seemed to have good luck against htem in the recent past.

Anyone wanna be the Phils lose 7 or more of those games?

I can hear Hatcher now...saying there's another liberal pessimist, rooting for our team to lose.

There are only four things in life you can count on with any certanity:

1. Death

2. Taxes

3. The Phils sucking

4. The sweet taste of Chartreuse.
