Good Riddance

It's about time.
The University of Illinois' American Indian mascot, Chief Illiniwek, no longer will perform at athletic events on the school's main campus after Wednesday
The Chief is offensive, but the Cleveland Indians logo is just a straight up racial slur. And this isn't open to debate. How the hell is this still an accepted MLB franchise?

Friday Malamute Blogging

He whimpers to go out and play when the wind chill is -30°. I'm the one whimpering when we get back inside.

Sweet home, Chicago! It feels downright balmy at 13°. And I thank God for every inch of fat on my ass this winter.

Moqtada al Sadr Flees to Iran?

Is this how we're going to justify bombing Iran?

Is Glenn Beck a Bigger Idiot than he is a Racist?

This isn't going to help Obama any.
On the February 12 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Glenn Beck featured Philadelphia-based conservative radio host Dom Giordano, who claimed that "the mainstream media has dubbed [Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL)] to be African-American" and said, "If you start to, you know, delve around the edges, say, 'Wait a minute, isn't he mixed race? Weren't we told that last year?' Or whatever, biracial. Not allowed to say that anymore." Beck responded by saying "he's very white in many ways," adding, "Gee, can I even say that? Can I even say that without somebody else starting a campaign saying, 'What does he mean, "He's very white?" ' He is. He's very white."

After the interview, Beck attempted to clarify his comments to executive producer and head writer of The Glenn Beck Program, Steve Burguiere, who is known on-air as "Stu." Beck claimed that Obama "is colorless," adding that "as a white guy ... [y]ou don't notice that he is black. So he might as well be white, you know what I mean?" In addition, Beck said: "I guarantee you, there will be blogs today that will have me being a racist because I say that."
Next time: Who would make a better black friend, Barack Obama, Wayne Brady or Shelby Steele?

Grammy fun!

Luda sends 'love' and a "special shout-out to Oprah and special shout-out to Bill O'Reilly!" while accepting his award for best rap album. Suck on that haters.

Mary J kicked ass and made me cry--whoever cued the shut up music on her should be fired!

Dixie Chicks won pretty much everything else. "Haw! Haw!"
