Red mind, blue state

Tony Iovino's blog, A Red Mind in a Blue State, should be getting more attention. Some excerpts from the past few days:
  • On Carson:
    The night your parents let you lay on the floor watching the family TV (one per household, thank you very much) and didn't chase you to bed when Ed McMahon roared out his "Heeere's Johnny!," that night was a special one. You weren't a little kid anymore.
  • On cows:
    Is it just me or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington, as well as all her calves to their stalls, but we are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country?
  • On Starbucks:
    ... a rapacious international corporation, which makes money off low-paid workers, and which markets a non-essential product that wholly depends on discretionary spending, lecturing its customers on prudent spending habits and liberal political issues, all to appear hip & trendy.
