fear and loathing in las vegas…

so, the mayor of vegas is mad at obama.  why?  because the man stated the obvious; its a recession, don’t spend money in vegas.  seems like common sense, right?  not according to mayor oscar goodman:

“i have told some folks who have asked under what terms i would meet and i said, if he calls me and indicates he will rectify the situation, and buys me a martini, then i would certainly honor that request.”

really?  he needs to call you and buy you a drink because… he stated the obvious?  apparently, goodman got his whitey tighties all in a bunch because he thinks obama’s 2nd use of vegas as an example of spending foolish money is hurting vegas’ economy and adding to its current foreclosure crisis.  right.  because… there’s so many legitimate ways to spend money in the city of las vegas.  this is what ‘rak was spittin’:

“responsible families don’t do their budgets the way the federal government does. right? when times are tough, you tighten your belts,” he said, “you don’t blow a bunch of cash on vegas when you’re trying to save for college. you prioritize. you make tough choices. it’s time your government did the same.”

where i come from… that shit is pure common sense.  gotta save up?  then don’t gamble, or go whoring, or go buyin’ $8-12 drinks at some crazy rooftop bar.  on top of that, for this crazy mf, a beer won’t do.  this bourgeois bastard wants a damn martini.  that’s what obama was talkin’ about ya fuckin’ moron.  sometimes, when times are tough, you gotta opt for the can of pbr over your $8 martini (plus $25 cover for entry to ghost bar).    what makes you think you can take a broad statement, like the one ‘rak made, and apply it to your current foreclosure crisis?  oop, barak said you shouldn’t blow cash on vegas when you savin’ up for college, imma stop payin my mortgage!  fuck outta here.  you’s just a whiny little bastid with a serious case of bitchassness.  grow a set and go meet the man, who coincidentally, is in town to talk to your chamber of commerce about those very foreclosures, and break bread for your city.  i know, i know, you gotta rep for your city, but let’s call a spade, a spade, yes?

christ, between this and the tiger apology, i feel like i’m taking crazy pills today.
