Big Dan's Big News July 22, 2009

Ice to see you, fellow prisoners!

Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to release 27,000 prisoners to help California budget, and possibly legalizing marijuana.

Ex-Fox News producer gets ten years for child porn

“Unfortunately, I am the victim and a witness to a crime in an ongoing investigation,” said GOP state rep Paul Stanley (no relation to the guy in KISS???). (bd: "...caused by me having an affair with a 22-year-old intern and then being extorted by her boyfriend"!)

It's only a matter of time, before a "family values" Republican gets caught in another sex scandal...Ensnared in Tennessee's own sex scandal tonight is Sen. Paul Stanley, the wingnut from Germantown who has crusaded to ban gay adoption of children and who once made the really stupid mistake of saying: "When you're married, there's a commitment there."

According to court documents, here's what happened: Stanley, who is married with two children, was accused of having an affair with a 22-year-old legislative intern, McKensie Morrison, by the woman's boyfriend. The boyfriend, Joel Palmer Watts. 28, discovered a computer memory disc with sexually explicit photographs of Morrison that appeared to have been taken in Stanley's apartment. Watts then blackmailed Stanley, demanding $10,000 in return for keeping quiet.

Christ! Can't Republicans keep it in their pants??? It's one thing to do this, but it's another thing to, at the same time, be preaching "family values" as you're doing this!!! And this guy calls himself the "victim"??? WE would ALL be "victims", if he were blackmailed for some other reason, like someone blackmailing him to sign a state contract for something! He put himself in that position, then claims he's a "victim"! Do you believe that? That clearly implies, that he thinks he should be able to cheat on his wife with an intern, and not be blackmailed for it...because that's not right!!! I think his wife and kids are the victims here! Not him! The only question remaining is: when will he pull out the "Jesus" playbook? As in: "You know, the Bible says King David cheated once..." ala GOP Governor Sanford. Or was that Ensign? I'm getting them all mixed up! I know one thing: I'm thinking of switching to the GOP, because they're all getting CRANKING CHICKS!!!!!!!!

Sen. Paul Stanley, Champion of Family Values, Caught in Sex-and-Blackmail Scandal

What makes this story different from several others the public has grown familiar with is not necessarily that Stanley, as a legislator, has been identified with a number of family values issues — introducing a bill while a House member that prohibited the showing of pornographic materials in a moving vehicle and taking a prominent role this past session in opposing legislation enabling adoption by gay parents.

State Senator Paul Stanley, Blackmail Victim or Self-Victimizer?

Three Dog Night

Originally brought together in 1968 by Danny Hutton and Cory Wells, the group was enormously successful from the start. Hutton, who had graduated from loading and unloading records at the Disney studio to recording as a solo artist, met Cory Wells while he was touring with Sonny and Cher. The now-famous name came from a story about Australian aborigines who, on cold nights in the outback, sleep with their dogs for warmth. The coldest evenings are known as "three dog nights".

Boasting chart and sales records that are virtually unmatched in popular music, THREE DOG NIGHT had 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, including 3 #1 singles, 11 Top 10's, 18 straight Top 20's, 7 million-selling singles and 12 straight RIAA Certified Gold LPs. Their hits appeared on best selling charts in all genres (pop, rock and country). Their records continue to sell around the world, reaching beyond the borders of the U.S. into Japan, Canada, Holland, England, Germany, Spain and elsewhere. Tens of millions of THREE DOG NIGHT records have been sold through the years.

THREE DOG NIGHT recorded the music of the best (and mostly undiscovered) new songwriters of their time including Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Elton John, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams and Hoyt Axton among many others. The group's eclectic taste, combined with their ability to recognize and record hits in a unique, distinctive and appealing style, resulted in THREE DOG NIGHT dominating best-selling charts for years. From 1969-1974, nobody had more Top 10 hits, moved more records, or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night.

These guys are great! Three Dog Night (present) doing "Mama Told Me Not To Come", then flashback 1970. Cory Wells sings as good as Joe Cocker! And no one knows it!
