The State-Run Media: The Kanye West of News

Drunk with power or cognac, whatev, short of stature, and not above embarrassing themselves anymore. No matter that two young people have brought down ACORN, the only thing they can do is holler, "Obama is the best president, evah!"

Which is why, in my mondo liquor emporium of choice, the cognac is under lock and key, while single malt scotches costing hundreds per bottle are on the open shelves.

Yep. Standard Operating Procedure.

I dragged a $630+ bottle of scotch across the scanner a few weeks ago, and the 26 y/o buying it never blinked, but I was astonished to find that he just pulled it off the shelf!

And then I decided that nothing can taste that good.

I promise you, things taste that good.

I agree with you Joan. Things don't taste that good. I would imagine that the main reason for 630$ pricetag is the rarity and colectability of that bottle.

Joan: My MIL said the same thing. My inlaws have a friend who lives in a villa on the Italian-Swiss border and who is a research chemist for Ciba Geigy. He is very well off, and one of the things he does is collect wine. Of course, my FIL loves to visit this friend! My MIL, though, being not that into alcohol, goes through the motions to be polite. During their last visit, they apparently sampled some rare treasure the host had brought up. My MIL was thinking to herself,"That's going to be some high-priced urine." I guess if you are into it, it's worth it, but I can't really see spending that much on a drink either.

Sheesh! That IS high priced.
To me, high priced is a case of beer for twelve bucks or so. :^)

Kanye West is an ass and a buffoon.
He needs a serious ass whuppin'. I bet he wouldn't try that crap at the CMA awards.

OTOH, I think I'm in love with Hannah.
