Shit. I didn't mean to light that fuse. I just always think of Berlusconi as a great punchline. Sorry everyone.

Which is great, because I think the new leading party is lead by a comedian. Yes, really.

We have Al Franklin, but he's just a Senator.

Motorcycles? Those have two wheels, right?

Maybe you should go on over, and immerse yourself in it.
Oh but I have a few times! I do apologize, it was rude and a bit inflammatory. In fact, I'm a Cultural Anthropology student. The fact that he is back in office is fairly reminiscent of what I've been learning of Mexican politics this quarter; people are more often manipulated into voting for most officials than actually autonomously voting for them. I also had read an article back when he had made his bid for this election that many had felt that because the economy had become so bad after he left that they had become convinced by him that he was the only thing holding it together before.

But here's the real issue, does the Executive leader of Italy ride?

Whatever they tried yesterday put Nicky .5 closer to the front and put Dovi .8 closer.

I think it was fuel tank position and weight distribution, which could mean anything. But a .5 and .8 second improvement is a step in the right direction.

Googling 'ben spies "real deal"' gets around 100,000 hits. A real deal is 20-20 hindsight.
No one was convinced about Rossi until after he switched to Yamaha and won.

There is nothing to lose in believing he has the highest potential. He certainly has given every indication that he has it. You won't be penalized if you are wrong.

Yeah, they should have elected a governator rather than a fornicator. Or the combo, as California did.

From the article:

"The dual MotoGP world champion gave a glimpse of the belligerence which unnerved motorcycle superstar Valentino Rossi when he previewed his first run in Red Bull Racing's Holden."

I can think of a lot of things to say about Casey's motoGP career, but belligerence? Statements like this put the whole article in perspective. As bullshit.
