And if you don’t like it, hang out with this poor guy:
The September 11 memorial was revealed yesterday. My dad said he thinks they should have built another building instead of a massive hole in an already-crowded city. I see where he’s coming from, but it’s definitely more symbolic this way – a permanent reminder. Either way, it’s a really impressive landmark and I can’t wait to see it in person.

Time Magazine editor, Mark Halperin, has been suspended from his position as an analyst for MSNBC. Why? Because he called the president “kind of a dick”on live TV. I feel kind of bad for the guy – he thought there was a delay and he was just trying to be honest. Still, I guess there are more eloquent ways of expressing displeasure with the president’s behavior (<— like that, for example). Oh, well give him a break. Obama has a sense of humor, he called Kanye West a jackass didn’t he?
Shizz gets awkward 40 seconds in….
We already had a “governator” (and look how he ended up), we don’t need a “President the Donald.” How ridiculous would we look to the rest of the world if we had a celebrity president? I know Reagan was an actor but that’s different. Donald Trump is a fame whore and, in fact, his stupid Celebrity Apprentice show is one of the reasons he cited for not running anymore.
“According to the Associated Press, Trump made the announcement in person Monday at a Manhattan hotel, as NBC rolled out its fall lineup, including another season of ‘The Celebrity Apprentice.’ He explained that the show has made a lot of money for charity and that he wanted to continue doing so. ‘I will not be running for president as much as I’d like to,’ Trump said.” – HuffPost
I’m guessing he came to a sobering realization that he is not president material when his show was cut off for the Osama announcement (Obama: 2, Trump: 0 p.s.), and he was probably pissed about it. Maybe he thought, “Hmmm as president I would have to care more about international affairs than my TV ratings – screw that!”
In any case, I think we dodged a bullet with this one. Here’s part of his statement:
“After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the presidency,” Trump said in a statement. “This decision does not come easily or without regret; especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country. … Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.”
Thanks, Don for staying in your private sector. Just keep building towers in the sky, hanging out with f-list celebrities, making ridiculous demands of the president, and combing your hair “a little bit forward and back.”
