Yeah, I remember his commercials from when we were living in Utah. I was annoyed by them. But there were too many other things to be annoyed about in Utah. So many things to be annoyed at, so little time.

Yeah. Super Dell is gone, but we've still got all the other stuff. - like legislators trying to get "divine design" introduced into the science curriculum.

I know ... makes me want to move somewhere else, where legislators never do stupid things. :)

I have only one thing to say: Dennis Kucinich.

Have a nice day, unless you already have other plans.

More news from our favorite Utahn.

By the way, I had the misfortune to stumble upon his blog while surfing the net today. Enjoy the weirdness . . . if you have the stomach for it.

Wow...

He's nutty.

I like how Happy Feet is satanic.


He does have a point, the media has never really been nice to him, but why would they when all they have to do is post the blog and see the crazy. A fake news story that he was closing is the reason he shut down his million dollar business? How would that make you ditch a business? Do you have a psychological need to prove the news right? That would explain a lot.

I'm all for 2nd ammendment rights, but at times like this it worries me that he has a gun. He hasn't done anything illegal just yet (IMO) but he's gonna crack soon.

Am I a bad person if my heart is slightly warmed by the fact that he doesn't use errant apostrophes? What he says may be crazy, but at least the grammar isn't so bad...

Only that people who put apostrophe's in their word's where they dont belong should suffer long and painful death's.

I think though, that Mr. Kucinich might be slightly more sane than Super Del.

I'm with you on this one. He should trigger a mental illness flag or something. His paranoia does not inspire confidence.

I like that he calls himself a "superhero."

Well, the guy's obviously nuts but getting in his face only makes things worse. He obviously has an inflated self-image (look at the language he uses to describe himself on his blog posts) and he's unhinged but thoroughly can't see it. There's a grain of truth to his comments about the media: they see him as an amusing figure and go for that angle in their stories.

Hey, Clumpy, why don't you play Anagrams any more? Stephsterr and I pretty much play all alone now, and I'm really slow.

I wonder if it was he who I saw paragliding "all crazy" by I-15 a couple weeks ago. I seriously thought the guy was going to crash into the ground.

I read several years ago "It is better to remain silent and be thought foolish than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

I'm definitely not known as a quiet demure person, but even I know much can be accomplished by biting one's tongue at times.

The KSL article does mention he was investigated for flying low over I-15 so that was probably him, ImAdhis.

Wow, do they really think he has a chance? If the Repubs put up someone a little less crazy then maybe.
I like traffic lights.
