(Via europopped.) It's wedged firmly between my ears and won't go away!
"The donkey screamed and children cried" is not a line from American Pie. Although it could have been...
Ghetto parenting at it's very best:
Two men who both have children with a young woman who was also on the scene began arguing, according to police Lt. Ted Roberts, who was assigned to the Gresham District the night of the incident.Even more confusing,
The altercation was between the victim’s mother’s current and former boyfriends, according to the police release.
The argument started because both men were trying to visit with their children at separate times and during one of the visits, one man disciplined the child of the other man, sending that man into a rage, according to Roberts.
The angry man pulled out a gun and fired at the other man and didn’t hit him but accidentally struck the child in the cheek instead. The bullet also pierced her shoulder, the lieutenant said.
The wounded baby is the child of either a sister or an aunt of the mother who has children with the fighting fathers, according to the lieutenant.Got all that straight? (I sure don't.) According to the beginning of the article, the wounded baby's mother is the woman with the battling exes. By the end of the story, it's unclear whose baby was shot.
But that a baby was shot at all, let alone for these reasons, is horrifying.
Remember when I said that the Blagoviator likes to pick his own audience? He may not have testified in court, but he certainly couldn't wait to try his cause in the court of public opinion again!
I've got to admit that while most of his blathering was more of the same old same old, this little gem is priceless:
At his media conference, Blagojevich also admitted he had learned from the case.I don't believe that lesson will stick.
“I’ve learned a lot of lessons from this whole experience and probably the biggest . . . is that I talk too much. Thank you.’’
And I do believe John Kass is correct:
Our former governor had a lot to say awhile ago, but now, apparently, he doesn't have the — what did he used to call it? — the testicular virility to take the stand in his own defense, as he promised about a gazillion times.Weenie.
