If You Feel Like…

Bringing your manhood gun to an event where the president will be speaking, take a tip from The Police (the band, not the guys in blue):

Do you really need to put your hand in the air like the other, well you know? Besides, you don’t want the left to unleash these guys, do you?

Cheerfully Stolen from Tbogg

Who stole it from Wonkette.

UPDATED: I need to apologize to any Republicans whom I may have, at least, mentally associated with this woman. Apparently, she is one of those Lyndon LaRouche Democrats.

A Lazy Sunday Morning

And I feel like wallowing in the mud a bit. So, at American Sore Loser, we have Don Doug firing the opening salvos in what he hopes will be a blog war with Meghan McCain: 

I didn't know Meghan McCain was a genuine skank. 

And then he posts an image of her saying motherfucker because only a skank would say that. But, what really sticks in Dr. Don’s craw is that:

Yeah, I'm up on Ms. McCain's wars with everybody who's somebody on the conservative right today

And she’s not at war with him, or at least it’s a cold war. And just to establish that he truly is second-rate, even beneath Robert Stacy McCain (a butt boy to, some might say):

I'm sending this post to Robert Stacy McCain (The Other McCain) to see what kind of fisking he'll work up (if any) on Meghan's lastest splash in the news.

And with luck he’ll link to American Power.

An aside, it’s too bad computers don’t have some sort of spell check thingy that could tell Herr Professor that lastest is not an actual word. But, word meanings and spelling don’t matter to him because: 

P.S. Folks know I have something of a bad-boy rep on the right, but boasting my mofo creds on Twitter isn't part of my repertoire! 

That’s right! He bad! This is a link to the post, but please don’t go there because he hates getting a lot of web hits. I try to minimize my own visits. Besides, I’ve cut and pasted every word of his, the rest was just his own cut and paste.

Drinking Away the Guilt

My former congressman, and proud participant in the Brooks Brothers riot, continues to try to drink away the guilt from having been a part of inflicting George Bush upon the nation. If he does receive his much-deserved jail time from these several drunk driving offenses, I wouldn’t worry about his safety in the clink. This is the man Bush deemed Congressman Kickass. 

Sweeney's lawyer, E. Stewart Jones, said the indictment was disappointing and unnecessary. "John is paying a heavy price for who he used to be and who he no longer is," Jones said. 

Yeah, it sucks to no longer be a congressman and be able to just make those DWIs go away. If I see John at a Phantoms game this winter, I’ll be happy to buy him a couple of rounds, though. No hard feelings.

Bruce Bartlett: Shouting into the Wind

Another reasonable Conservative writes a piece suggesting steps the GOP needs to take to become a viable political party again. Unfortunately, the insane base of the Republican party will never listen. Lines such as: 

According to the CBO, federal taxes will amount to just 15.5 percent of GDP this year. That’s 2.2 percent of GDP less than last year, 3.3 percent less than in 2007, and 1.8 percent less than the lowest percentage recorded during the Reagan years. If conservatives really believe their own rhetoric, they should be congratulating Obama for being one of the greatest tax cutters in history.

Would surely get him hanged in effigy. Or in fact:

Where is the evidence that everything would be better if Republicans were in charge? Does anyone believe the economy would be growing faster or that unemployment would be lower today if John McCain had won the election? I know of no economist who holds that view.

I suspect if Professor Clownshoes has read it, he has thoroughly debunked it(in his mind) and removed Bartlett from his Christmas card list for good measure. I’m not going over to find out because he hates to have a lot of traffic. Best of luck to Bruce Bartlett, though. Those town hall protesters might be a hard sell.

Addendum: Steve Benen corresponds with Bartlett and determines that the GOP has just adapted a new form of IOKIYAR.

Peas in a Pod

Sitting in the bleachers at Wrigley is the sports equivalent of the town hall protester.

A Chicago Cubs fan hit Phillies’ outfielder with a cup full of beer during last night’s game in Chicago.
The ugly incident came on an ugly night for the Cubs, who were losing another game when the fan doused Victorino as he was catching a fly ball.

In Chicago, you have Victorino being literally doused with beer as he tries to do his job for the team he represents. In town halls around the country, you have United States congressmen being figuratively soaked with beer while trying to do a job for the people of the United States, whom they represent.

Poor sportsmanship and sore losers abound.

Glenn Beck Goes (Farther) Awry

This clip is stolen from Little Green Footballs. I cannot understand why anyone who is as obviously insane as Glenn Beck has a show on a network that purports to be a news provider. Lord help us that there are people who actually watch this and believe it.

Lucky We Don’t Live There



A Clip for Truth

Because he doesn’t see the value in being a sheep.

Want a Job? Elect a Dem.

But then, numbers do have a liberal bias.

Who’s Afraid of Rush Limbaugh?

We’ll see.

Laughs at American SoreLoser

Sorry, I guess that’s actually American Power. I won’t bother linking because he hates to have a lot of traffic there. Anyway, this is the type of hilarious graphic I go there for.  Obamacare_Flag_Poster_Profit_FlagHe drew me in with the “Tbogg is a racist post,” but I stayed for the people’s cube idiocy. Beyond the ludicrous idea that the White House wants to stop capitalism there is the image presented. Doesn’t the strong, virile protagonist in the poster represent the forces of anti-capitalism? And the sickly capitalist is the character who is only represented by a hand with a dollar sign? He also seems to have a sallow color. I suppose they are saying this is what the WH would put out. In that case, why help them?

Maybe Professor Clownshoes hasn’t looked at the market lately. My portfolio is certainly perking up. Hope his is.

Obama’s Death Panel

Here we see several members of the president’s death panel reporting for duty:


On a side note: I think I’ve found my Halloween costume.

Wingnuts Looking for a Leader

These are the people who are comparing Obama to Hitler and Stalin. But now, Liz Cheney feels he is not a strong enough “Commander in Chief.”

BTW, he is only a CinC to those who are actually serving in the military. That does not include Liz “deferment #?” Cheney or her chickenhawk father and their followers.

"Now as a veteran of the State Department, I can tell you that effective diplomacy is not about appeasing your enemy. It’s not about unilateral pre-emptive disarmament. America has to negotiate from a position of strength. To survive as a nation, our president can’t function as a disinterested international arbitrator. He can’t attempt to stand above America and our enemies. In other words, America needs a commander in chief, not a global community organizer." 

No, none of it makes any sense, but she was talking to the Red Staters. So, it only matters that she was dissing Obama.

A Dream Come True

For Rich Lowry and every other red-blooded, cheeto-munching wingnut, their fondest desire has come true. Sarah Palin is back on the market. 

Sarah has recently purchased land in Montana and is considering moving the family there. Sarah Palin is originally from Idaho. 

No word on the dental floss seedlings or the pygmy pony:
