The week that was
Election Day was Tuesday. Ken Cuccinelli of Virginia and Colorado’s income tax were the losers, Chris Christie the winner. Despite winning the mayorship of New York City, Bill de Blasio’s smackdown victory dance made him look like a loser.
Toronto mayor Rob Ford admitted that he smokes crack and gets drunk. He also confirmed our suspicions that that isn’t an innocent “maple leaf” on the Canadian flag, afterall. He also said that no matter how many illicit substances he ingests, he’d never behave as classlessly as de Blasio.
Obama sort of apologized to the millions of people he lied to about keeping their insurance plans under Obamacare. He said he was sorry “that they are finding themselves in this situation.” He’s just not sorry enough to do anything about it.
Richie Incognito, guard for the Miami Dolphins, made headlines this week for allegedly harassing a teammate. Apparently Incognito had been behaving questionably for some time, but it took the press a while to call him on the unsportsmanlike conduct because they couldn’t figure out who was behind it.
There is a “super typhoon” headed for the Philippines as of the writing of this. It is reportedly “one of the strongest storms ever recorded on the planet.” Please pray for these people.
