DAMN YOU, PIG FLU

Sick today. So for the first time in many moons I'm subjecting you to a "Here, go read some other stuff that is more interesting than me anyway" post.

– Sarah Palin is the keynote speaker at the 2010 International Bowling Expo. "Her presence underscores the impact and importance of bowling." This is like a glimpse into her future. She'll be doing state fairs before you know it.

A former Bank of America employee talks about the company's displeasure with her habit of putting as many cardholders as possible on their Fix Pay plan…because said borrowers were poor credit risks. So they were good risks for the 30.99% APR (plus fees) credit card BoA gave them but not a good risk for a 6% fixed APR installment loan to replace the overdue balance on said card. Nice.

– The convicted felon who set Free Republic atwitter with the revelation that he "took drugs [and] had homo sex with Obama" is running for Congress. Contribute now, before he goes back to prison.

– Harry Reid allegedly threatens his caucus with reconciliation. I don't believe it, but if true it certainly is funny how he discovered a nutsack when he realized that he's trailing his race for re-election in 2010.
