Quote of the Day

Michaels Jordan and Vaughan should take cyclist Chris Hoy's words to heart:

Next day, Hoy meets some Scottish journalists. One puts it to him that: 'In the last 24 hours everyone has been offering an opinion on Chris Hoy. But what does Chris Hoy think of Chris Hoy?'

Hoy doesn't miss a beat: 'Chris Hoy thinks that the day Chris Hoy refers to Chris Hoy in the third person is the day that Chris Hoy disappears up his own arse.'

I think you're forgetting all the fine men of the WWE who all tend to refer to themselves in the third person. And just for the record, wrestling is real!

Ahsan: don't know where else to post this. Did you catch a glance at Palin's interview with ABC? In context of all this recent activity over cross-border attacks into Paki-land by the US, I was thinking it would be interesting to get a more updated analysis on the Paki-factor in the context of the "developments" in the US election cycle. I have given up the possibility of having this discussion on the Daily Ko's types of blogs b/c US political blogs are all trippin on acid and a scary amount of U-S-A! chants these days.

Yeah I was a planning a post on this stuff in the next couple of days if/when I found the time. Being in Pakistan right now, all I can tell you is that the US political and military elite seriously underestimates how massive a deal this really is.
