Too many things to talk about so time for another smorgasbord of good stuff. To sum up the first 4 hours of 24 I am still mourning President Palmer. If he was a Republican he would've been my choice for President in 2008 :-). But with his loss we have a personal cause for Jack to pursue so it does work well in the story. So all of us Palmer fans will just have to move on :-(.
We also lost Michelle who was another one of my favorite characters so had to at least give them a final sendoff with some pictures. I would've picked different people to bump off but alas Joel Surnow didn't consult with me on who they were going to get rid of. If he had I would've highly recommended getting rid of the weasal President Logan and Edgar.
Some other interesting tidbits about the show is besides Rush being a big fan so is Laura Ingraham and Mary Matalin. Which just goes to show you how smart Conservative women are. The show is also doing very well, here is a clip from Newsmax:
'24' Gets Huge Ratings
"Fox's "24" - a favorite prime-time show for many conservatives - just pulled in its best ratings ever with its fifth-season premiere and the first of two back-to-back episodes. This season's first episode of "24" averaged 17 million viewers and a 7.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic. "24"'s second hour finished with 15.5 million viewers and a 6.7 in adults 18-49.
These are phenomenal figures that speak volumes about what sort of entertainment post-9/11 Americans seem to prefer. Contrast this to the tepid response to George Clooney's "Syriana," with its anti-American message about the 'causes' of Islamic terrorism, and one begins to see that Americans are ready to watch entertainment that deals with our current War on Terror - but also that they're sensitive to the messages that entertainment contains.
Will Hollywood learn this lesson? Perhaps. A good sign will be whether the Academy showers "Syriana" with nominations later this month ..."
And finally my favorite Jack Bauer line from the 1st 4 hours is, "The only reason you're still conscious is because I don't want to carry you." Classic!!
You Are a Chick Rocker!
You're living proof that chicks can rock
You're inspired by Joan Jett and the Donnas
And when you rock, you rock hard
(Plus, you get all the cute guy groupies you want!)
I got a huge kick out of my results on this quiz. I found this over at EitherOrr. Let me know what kind of rocker you guys turned out to be.
Awhile back Patrick did a post on Babes for Bush with conservative women pictures for the men. He then attempted to do the same for the ladies but it didn't quite work for me (no offense Patrick) I figured I'd take a stab at seeing what I could find :-).
From Top to Bottom:
1) Sean Hannity (ofcourse)
2) Mel Gibson
3) Jim Caviezel
4) Bruce Willis
5) Our President W in the flightsuit
I tried to do what Patrick did and post a picture of a Democrat man for contrast but no matter what I did my picture of Micheal Moore wouldn't post. I think it is a sign that my blog couldn't handle having his picture posted here :-).
Finally on a more serious note check out Suzie's site to see about another psycho judge not protecting our kids.
