Are bleeding.

I loved the comment on Huff Post by "bapster":

More coherent speaker: Les Miles on the oil spill or Alvin Greene in his first stump speech?

Of course, there's also our friend, Basil Marceaux, running for governor in Tennessee....

I tried to watch Miles on ESPN for SEC media day, and all I could think of was how glad I am that he didn't end up at Michigan.  People can rip on RR's accent all day, but after all of the stereotyping is over, RR is pretty articulate.  Miles looksand sounds like he was the kid who waited until last to give every speech in public speaking class, and never really got over it.

I cannot believe that this man has an econ degree from Michigan.  How the hell did he pull that off?  He comes off as a complete meathead every time he opens his mouth.
