Michael Savage reference?

Rant: I can't rant about a Michael Savage reference. Also, I can't rant about getting the first response.

I don't think it's meant to be, but it does fit well!

Actually, I'm pretty sure he says Banned in Britain instead of UK.

Ah, a rant has been found!

If you were on the west coast of the U.S., you might have been coming back from dinner. Would you give the same response?

Rant: My AP Calculus class has reached the long way for how to calculate tangent lines. I know that the power rule is a shorter way of doing it, and know a bit about how it works, I'm just not able to actually use it, or one of those other weird calculusy shortcuts, yet.

Math, why can't you just teach me the shortcuts to begin with instead of making me do things the long way for a week first?

I'm not sure either. If they just taught us the power rule, and othe other nice rules, I wouldn't have been so confused initialy.

Rant: I just now learned that the guy who played Frasier is a Republican.

Rant 2: It took me this long to learn that.

Rant 3: I now have to delete that Frasier reference I made in the raves thread, because I so passionately hate Repubs.

Don't hate a show because of an actor's political angle. Hell, don't hate the actor for that.

I loved West Wing even though it was a democrat party mouth piece show basically. IT was still very well done and the actors were (besides Lowe) outstanding.

No. They considered him for the role, but Martin Sheen got it.

You know, wait...he was a Senator in a couple of seasons.

I could have sworn he was, I remember watching some of West Wing in AP Gov and seeing Alan Alda in it.

EDIT: Wikicheck!
Quote:
Beginning in 2004, Alda was a regular cast member on the NBC program The West Wing, portraying Republican U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Arnold Vinick, until the show's conclusion in May 2006. He made his premiere in the sixth season's eighth episode, "In The Room," and was added to the opening credits with the thirteenth episode, "King Corn." In August 2006, Alda won an Emmy for his portrayal of Arnold Vinick in the final season of The West Wing.

The West Wing was one of my favorite shows.

Rant-with-5-year-delay: They cancelled The West Wing.

Watching the new HOUSE md episode tonight. Whoever this Charlyne Yi is, she's an absolutely terrible actor, and her character is completely annoying.

how hard is it to close the door on a trash compactor?
Can you not see why that's an important step in using the machine designed to crush everything?
