The tendentious Rick Sanchez and CNN fail to properly correct the record on Rush Limbaugh's so called racist statements. Sanchez issued the following "mealy-mouthed" twitter apology:
    i've know rush. in person,i like him. his rhetoric,however is inexcusably divisive. he's right tho. we didn't confirm quote. our bad.

Tendentious?

That's what five old couples leave in a glass by their bedsides.

My elbow hurt for about a week.
The doctor said I had “tendentious”.

My father kept losing his false teeth,
finally, we bought him 9 backup sets.
He has tendentious.

I’m simply amazed that it is not snowing in Virginia as the always tendentious Al Gore will be here today campaigning for the Dem governor candidate.

Alas it is just raining, and we have already seen the high temp of the day. 53.

Rush’s tendencious rhetoric has caused a backlash of lies from his opponents.

Don’t you know that the snow and cold weather is caused by Global Climate change due to dangerous greenhouse gasses like water vapor and carbon dioxide? You need to adopt a vegan lifestyle, stop driving your SUV, and lower your carbon footprint to near zero.

Snowing? Good grief, a little early, isn’t it?

Tendentious - attitude exhibited by puppet pres on the health care bill and how Americans are seen by the rest of the world. He’s like a dog with a rope who won’t give up the tug of war game.

Most of these mainstream “journalists” are not only tendentious, but outright contentious yet pretentious regarding their “objectivity”...

BTW, around here the warmer Lake Erie is sparing us from most of the ‘stuff’ (at least for now anyway ;)

I gave hubby the news of the day in sixty seconds yesterday when he wandered in from work after 8 last night.........he came whipping down the stairs later after seeing it on the news and says “I think they faked it...”....he was shocked. I laughed and told him FReepers had it figured out while the balloon was sailing along and the balloon chasers were in full chase/mode.

Jax mentioned yesterday that she would like to get some of the sunflowers that actually came up, but can’t get to them because of the water.

I made the mistake of trying to drive out to the other side of the field...........at least I used the Escort and not the pick up, I don’t think I would have been able to get that out of the mud.

Today is Boss’s Day, so I have been inundated with well-wishers from my far-flung empire. I just found out yesterday that effective Monday, I’m getting another department transferred to me from Operations. It’s just as well, they spend most of their time in my office asking questions and doing things for my people anyway.

Probably not. I really don’t like horror movies. I’m more into action/adventure/scyfy...or anything with Eastwood or Willis in it.

Emma Watson made Empire Magazine’s hottest list at #3 behind Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie. I’m not sure why.
