10 ) Prop. 8 goes down in flames in California. The sad unintended consequence: Massachusetts can no longer boast that it is more progressive than California.
9 ) Susan G. Komen for the Cure buckles under a massive pro-choice backlash and restores grant funding to Planned Parenthood, but it’s going to take a while for the black and blue to fade from SGK’s pink ribbon.
8 ) Mitt Romney crushes Newt Gingrich in the Nevada caucuses, then goes on to say he would yank all government funding for Planned Parenthood. Mitt, you’re sending mixed signals here; am I supposed to like you or not?
7 ) But wait! Rick Santorum smokes Romney in a three-state sweep (two caucuses and a non-binding primary)! This one’s easier: Santorum sucks.
6 ) Bill O’Reilly chides a conservative group for protesting JC Penney over its decision to hire Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson. Wait, I AGREE WITH BILL O’REILLY! Gah! Up is down! Day is night! Dogs and cats living together — mass hysteria!
5 ) Massachusetts receives a federal waiver excusing it from No Child Left Behind requirements. Great, now we can screw up the public education system on our own, like the Constitution says we can!
4 ) The producers of The Jersey Shore hold a less-than-spectacular casting call for their next reality show, Southie Pride. This could almost make folks wistful for the days of the Winter Hill Gang.
3 ) Fickle New England Patriots fans turn on Giselle Bundchen for her post-Super Bowl remarks. Fans apparently liked her better when she was Tom Brady’s silent, opinionless arm-candy. Damned broads, thinkin’ an’ stuff…
2 ) The Parents Television Council has its bi-monthly freak-out, this time over rapper MIA flipping the bird during the Super Bowl Half-Time Show and Madonna’s profanity. The PTC claims the NFL lied to the country when it promised a clean show, but hey, Madonna only claimed there would be no wardrobe malfunctions. Hooray for loopholes!
1 ) Thousands of people in New England experience a bizarre case of selective amnesia. It seems a lot of people are having problems recalling what happened Sunday.
