MONDAY MORNING HIGHLIGHTS

Just caught a few points from Morning Joe:

Mike Allen, Politico and Journolist, said the democrats were saying “What republican surge?” because early voters seem to be heavily registered democrat.  Only thing is they are voting Republican!!  Ha.

For that, Mika says the country is in decline.  She’s going to need to be deprogrammed.

Latest poll:  Alan Grayson  36 – Daniel Webster – 43

They think NPR made a mistake in firing Juan Williams. Bigger mistake to stand by the decision.   Joe says the CEO should be fired.   I guess that would be Ms. Shiller.

Joe kept saying he is appalled that Obama did not meet with Mitch Mc’Connell until August – a full 18 months.

Blago and Elvis connection

Had he survived, Elvis Presley would be celebrating his 75th birthday this year. The King lives again at Heritage Auctions’ August 14th Elvis Auction at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis. The auction is topped by the listing of Elvis Presley’s White Knabe Grand Piano which is expected to bring in over $1 million. Other items up for bid include his original 1955 RCA Contract, a signed Graceland Purchase Agreement, personal address book, love letter, jumpsuit and handgun.

And speaking of Elvis and Auction:

Disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s personal belongings are set to go up for auction by the storage facility to which he owes one year’s worth of back rent. Indeed, Boyer-Rosene Moving & Storage, a Chicago-area moving and storage company, plans to sell the contents of seven 5′ by 7′ wooden storage crates he has rented for the past eight years (as seen below), according to Paul Lombardo, Boyer-Rosene’s chief executive officer.

Most of the contents of the crates are documents, but there’s one intriguing item: a life-size statue of crooner Elvis Presley with a microphone in hand.

Free Credit Report dot Com (videos)

I love these commercials.  The Rockstar one below is my favorite, at least so far.

All of them (I think) are on the below video.  Very, very creative.   They can get into your mind and you can’t forget what they are promoting.  A lot of bang for the buck for a 30 second ad.  So many commercials are good and you remember the commercial, but not the product.  Not these.  In fact, sometimes you wish you could get that tune out of your head.   I’d love to see somebody do an interview with whoever creates them.

There’s supposed to be a pirate hat somewhere in each one of them.

(Note:  I don’t think it is really free but maybe.)  🙂

Obviously to be worn with no clothes on to obstruct the view.  🙂
