Rapid Fire Pittsburgh News 9/16

Item:  Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, famous for a variety of blunders from remarking on "Man on Dog" sex to involving the government in the Terri Schiavo case, has announced his presidential aspirations for the 2012 election.  With the nation underwhelmed by the announcement, I am reminded of Dan Savage's coining of the term "santorum" to refer to the bodily excretions resulting from anal sex.  

Item:  Twenty-two members of a drug smuggling ring, including 9 American Airline employees have been arrested for drug smuggling out of Luiz Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan Puerto Rico.   Lady Rivera has yet to comment.  Puerto Rican!

Item:  Break out your Captain America suits!  (Oh, am I the only one that has one of those?)  Pittsburgh City Council has rejected its ban on masks during the upcoming G20 summit.  Now I can greet those world leaders in style.

Item:  Steelers' Safety Ryan Clark on the fence about whether or not to play in Denver.  After losing his spleen, gall bladder, and thirty pounds during his last trip to Mile-High Stadium, Clark also found, in his own words, that "my lungs had filled, my kidneys were dented, and my stomach was closing."  And he's unsure whether he'll make a return appearence.  Now that's what I call Stillers football!  Guy damages most of his organs due to Denver's rarified air sparking an existent blood condition, and he still might go back and play!  Dude's tough!  or dumb.

Item 1: Rick who? He's still around?

Item 2: Did you imply Lady Rivera was among those arrested but had not commented? Or did you ask the only Puerto Rican member of the MWBT&PC to comment on this story solely because it involves Puerto Rico? What is she the island's drug dealer's spokeperson?

Ok, here's the comment: Last I checked, it was American Airlines, not Puerto Rican Airlines. Happy?

Item 3: Are you really going downtown in a Captain American suit? Won't that make you a protest target?

Item 4: Ryan Clark is a STEELER. 'Nough said.

Cap America said...

As a symbol of freedom and liberty, (two founding principles of our great nation), I believe me wearing a Captain America suit will be too confusing and ironic for either protesters or police to know WHAT to do with me.

Or I might get murdered.

The Spiderman suit makes me uncomfortable.
