Oh, well. With Daniels out, the only GOP candidates already in or expected to soon be in who have a shot, by my count, are Romney, Pawlenty, Paul, Johnson, Cain, and Gingrich. I would love to see Paul or Johnson take it all the way, but my friend Alexandra Antonova may be right that I need to start paying more attention to Pawlenty (though I refuse to start calling him T-Paw – it just reminds me how bland he can be).
On the other hand, there are about a dozen big sci-fi movies out next year I could focus on. See, that makes me feel better already. (Did you know Ridley Scott is doing an Alien prequel, thirty-three years after his original?)
Daniels isn’t the only important figure for whom we’ll look back to early 2011 with nostalgia, of course. The other is Charlie Sheen, now officially replaced on Two and a Half Men, panned for his road show, and likely soon to be forgotten and/or in rehab. But while his star shone so brightly, he gave us sayings that, as you may have seen, go better juxtaposed with cat pictures.
And though he talked of “tiger blood,” he would do well to remember that gibbon beats tiger, as this footage clearly proves.
