Links of the Day

Tron Legacy Poster, Image - Even though it’s about a year away from release, Disney has released a teaser poster with love interest image for the movie with the slogan "The game has changed." The movie is a direct sequel to the 80s film, using some of the same characters but taking place about 25 years later to allow it to take place in the relative present.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice Teaser Trailer - A new trailer is out for the live action film starring Nic Cage as the sorcerer. Once you get past his silly hair style, it looks like might be interesting to see. Click the link for a wide range of viewing options.

Congress Bill Pushes for College Playoff System - A new bill, co-sponsored by a Democrat and Republican, would ban the promotion of a national championship in college football without a playoff system. The amusing part though is some are against it not because it is bad law but because they think Congress could be doing better things. Personally I have faith in Congress' ability to multi-task multiple issues at once. Too bad the conversation has been hijacked from talking about improving college football to something about who might be working harder.

Leaving the Right Behind - An interesting article from Andrew Sullivan, who is a gay conservative that currently disagrees with the often contradictory goals of the Republican Party. Click the link for his analysis of the major issues he has currently with the party that does a good job of summarizing many of my own.

Fox's Gretchen Carlson Has A Brain - It turns out the dumb blonde on Fox & Friends is actually a brain with degree from Stanford and Oxford Universities. You know the kind of places only the Democratic elitists supposedly come from. As a result, she has made her bones basically being the "idiot" of the group so that things can be explained through or to her for the sake of their equally dumb audience. The Daily Show does a good job calling her out on it and asks her to use what her God gave her.
