The Movement-arians strike again: I could have put odds on that. Wouldn't have been any higher than 2-1? What the hell am I talking about? Hardball, of course!

The debate's raging, both sides (Dianne Feinstein and Rick Santorum) are making pretty good points, and the cheering sections are backing them up (an informal "stand up" poll revealed a 75-25 split against the war. You're on a college campus, hello, DUH!). But it was only a matter of time before some idiot ruined the party, the only question was which side it would be from (as both sides have their respective idiots).

40 minutes in, BOOM. Four protestors, looking all hippie-like (although according to my roommate, this didn't come across well on TV), chanting "No blood for oil!", etc, blah, blah, blah. Chris Matthews asks, "Would you like to make a statement in English or just in chant form?" Laughter. They should have known they were dead in the water. One of them steps up reluctantly and gives the usual Idiotarian schpiel, i.e. the sanctions are hurting the Iraqi people, we're going to kill millions of Iraqis, etc., etc. Surprisingly no mention of the oil "cabal". She probably just hadn't gotten to it. After five minutes of pointless dithering, commercial break, and they're out of there. Way to make a positive impression of American University, girls.

Can the Hardball Hot Seat save AU's reputation on Hardball? Find out tomorrow night, about 9:30. I'm not saying anything.

(BTW, this should qualify me for Misha's Imperial Underground. I'm obviously in a hellhole of Idiotarianism. Note: This is not sucking up. Really.)


Theme? We don't need no stinkin' theme!
