September 28th News Bits and Pieces: Sarah Palin, Barack Obama, Starbucks, and the X-Factor

News and Politics

Palin finishes memoir, ‘Going Rogue,’ out Nov. 17

Woo, I can’t wait to read it!  The title is very eye-catching; “Going Rogue”, it just really draws you in.  Or it could be that I’m secretly still obsessed with Palin even though her political career advancements, unfortunately, seem close to nil.  Yeah, that could be it too.

Secret Service investigates Obama poll on Facebook

I have a feeling this is going to go down in the books with the Joe Wilson saga as a story that was talked about far too much.  I realize it’s not okay to say make a poll asking if anyone should be assassinated, and chances are the person that made the poll realizes that too.  It was surely meant as joke, though I guess the secret service should probably check it out; better safe than sorry.  I just hope this doesn’t turn into the left’s latest “hate crime” to whine about.  Newsflash: white people can also be assassinated.

Obama wants nation’s children to spend more time in school

I swear, if he does I will chalk him up as being the worst president in our nation’s history.  It wasn’t that long ago when I was in school, and had anyone told me I’d be attending school for 3 extra hours every day, I’d probably just have dropped out.  And that’s saying something because I liked school.  There were would be major fallout if this was changed.  And by the way, I was kidding about the worst president ever thing, though he would rank up there pretty high……………… but that’d be even without the extra school hours.

Starbucks debuts Via instant coffee in U.S., Canada

I’ll try the instant coffee, but I’m probably not going to like it.  The last time I had instant coffee I was extremely to close to expelling my stomach cavity; if that’s possible.  It was Folgers and it was re-pul-sive.  Additionally, I find Starbucks to be vastly overrated.

What’s the big deal about late-night profanity?

Honestly, I didn’t even notice Jenny Slate’s slip-up on Saturday Night Live.  I don’t think it’s that big of a deal, either.  We all make accidents and that was certainly one.  I don’t condone the usage of profanity, but it certainly isn’t a big deal that the f-bomb was accidentally dropped in a skit that revolved on the word “friggin'”.

Simon Cowell may bring ‘X Factor’ to U.S.

I’m all about a good reality show, but I think this may be overkill.  If the U.S. version of The X Factor is too similar to American Idol, both series will surely suffer.  On the other hand, American Idol all year really wouldn’t be that bad in my opinion.

Song of the Day: “Happy” by Leona Lewis (New Single Live on America’s Got Talent)

I was a big fan of Leona Lewis on the X-Factor (Yes, I did watch that), and I was also a fan of most of the stuff on her first CD, and there’s no denying she’s got a great voice.  The new song,  “Happy”, is different, and I’m not crazy about it now, but I think it’ll grow on me.  Listen below and decide for yourself if you like today’s song of the day:

Video of the Day: Danyl Johnson From The X-Factor

Vote in the “Danyl Johnson v. Susan Boyle” Poll by clicking here.

Being the reality tv buff that I am, I couldn’t help but to post this video.  This is the much hyped Danyl Johnson from Britain’s “X-Factor”.  Simon’s calling his audition the best first audition he’s ever seen.  Could this be a more stable version of Susan Boyle?

Does Danyl’s performance live up to its hype?  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to bookmark The Conservative Journal and sign up for the RSS Feed and the daily e-mail newsletter.
