Dixieland Ãœber Alles

Weasel Zippers is busting Chuckles McBagofSnacks for telling pony tales out of school:

Charles Johnson “Fairly Sure” the Tennesee State Flag is a Neo-Nazi Logo…

Mandy Messypants:  I saw it at a Vlaams Belaang rally.  Straight up Nazi.

Cunto The Incontinent: Amanda Geller flies it over her FEMA concentration camp.

Pillwhore Troutmouth:    Obviously, Irish nazi Celtic Wolves!

I’ve been trying to find some hidden meaning behind the California state flag but there’s just nothing to work with.

In Jim Jones, Jerry Brown, Red Dellums, Natasha Pelosivic and Senator* Barbara Boxer We Trust

/because of the triskeles!

Like the Masonic all-seeing Eye of Providence, our subliminal neo-nazism has embedded itself deeper than you can ever imagine:

Dumb ass.

Today Tennessee, Tomorrow the World!

The Science Is Settled! UPDATE: Little Green Frogboilers is 30% more vinegary than the leading douche.   You noticing that I’m getting my little, pink panties in a twist and going on a Nazi Witch-hunt  over a state flag while all my commenters smear away is really a sign of what a wingnut YOU are!    What a lying PoS.

Will Call People “Teabaggers” For Food

Terrible news.  Tragic really.  It really says something about Obamanomics when the only reason a newspaper survives is to print Foreclosure Notices.

Here’s some change I can believe in:

As you’ve no doubt read by now, Monday has been a day of transition for SouthComm. It’s not been easy. It’s not been fun. It is what it is.

The changes have forced us to make changes everywhere and Post Politics is, obviously, not going to be immune to them.

This blog, which so many of you have come to rely on for political news from Nashville and beyond, will change, yes.

Walk it off, son.

If David Frum, David Brooks, Andrew Sullivan and Kathleen Parker have taught me anything it’s the media loves a fake conservative to bash the real ones.

Don’t worry though.  Liberals take care of their own.  No matter how untalented they are.

Why I am not a registered Republican (updated)

Reason number 432:

According to two knowledgeable sources, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele once raised the possibility of using party money to buy a private jet for his travel.

Once on the ground, FEC filings suggest, Steele travels in style. A February RNC trip to California, for example, included a $9,099 stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel, $6,596 dropped at the nearby Four Seasons, and $1,620.71 spent [update: the amount is actually $1,946.25] at Voyeur West Hollywood (link NSFW, I think…I copied and pasted it without opening it), a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex.

RNC trips to other cities produced bills from a long list of chic and costly hotels such as the Venetian and the M Resort in Las Vegas, and the W (for a total of $19,443) in Washington. A midwinter trip to Hawaii cost the RNC $43,828, not including airfare.

Steele himself declined numerous interview requests, though his defenders point out that luxurious accommodations are sometimes necessary to attract big-time donors, especially since Republicans remain in the minority in Washington.

This is what is wrong with our political system. Can’t effectively pick up donations with ideas for improving our country? Well…hell! Let’s just take ole’ Marvin Moneybags into a back room of an S and M club (not that I know what that is), snap a few photos…and you can extort your donation.

(OK, I’m not saying that is what ACTUALLY happens…but imagine the possibilities).

All using donations from hard-working Americans who thought their donations were going to support conservative “values”.

Update: According to Michelle Malkin, the Daily Caller post was written to imply that Steele himself was at the club…when in fact he was not. It was RNC consultant Erik Brown. Still, the RNC approved the “expense”.

Making Charles Ponzi Blush

Here’s John Stossel making a ridiculous amount of sense. Why he bumped himself off of ABC, where he could wax libertarian to millions of Americans to move to Fox Business is beyond me.

Here is the epilogue from Stossel’s show. I wish the whole episode was available. Did you know that even in the surplus years under Clinton, if you factored in the spending of the Social Security trustfund/lockbox, we were still spending at a deficit?

I hate to say it, but we will probably never have a government, Republican or Democrat that will actually keep us on a sustainable path.

All Americans should be a little nervous that we are paying for entitlements on a Citibank Visa cash advance payable in Yuan.

Everyone In Cleveland Has AIDS

I went to Cleveland and all I got was this lousy “I’m HIV Positive” t-shirt:

On Friday, several hundred other people in Greater Cleveland — where 4,000 people live with AIDS — will do the same thing, coming out of the closet about HIV.

It’s a “stunt” by the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland, a bit of street-theater activism aimed at defusing HIV stigmas.

On Friday, we won’t block intersections or yell. We’ll just wear the shirt as we go about our routines — doing our jobs, grocery shopping, hitting a sports bar for March Madness.

That’s where Hitler went wrong.  When he tattooed Jews and put triangles on gays he should have just said that he was “raising awareness” to “defuse stigmas”.

During the Nazi occupation of Denmark, a Swedish cartoonist had a caricature of the former Danish prime minister asking what the country would do if the Germans made “all the Jews wear yellow stars” as they had done in other occupied countries.

In the cartoon, the king of Denmark, who had made no secret of his disdain for Hitler, replies: “We’ll all have to wear yellow stars.”

“That’s what we’re talking about — taking the power out of stigma by giving everyone a place at the table,” Pike said.

What a great idea.  Better yet, why don’t you give everyone AIDS.  That’ll take the stigma away.

“If every woman in the country who has had an abortion — that’s about one of every three — owned up to it, it would drastically alter the abortion debate.”

And also more easily identify the loose women.

The Taskforce will not, for example, do its annual AIDS Walk this year, but it is looking into buying billboard space that will put HIV “in everybody’s face,” Pike said.

For someone so HIV positive, he seems so negative.  So let it be known, if you want a bunch of AIDS in your face visit sunny Cleveland this year.

Why Not Nationalize AT&T?

Thank You For Calling OT & T.

With AT&T’s announcement that they are going to take a 1st QTR hit of $1 Billion because of ObamaCare, it seems appropriate that Partial Birth Abortion Bart & Henry Waxman are offering their execs a grilling in front of Congress for embarrassing Dear Leader with their pesky “facts”. Oh, and bring all of your internal company e-mails and 7 years of records while you’re at it.

“The new law is designed to expand coverage and bring down costs, so your assertions are a matter of concern,” Waxman and Stupak, both Democrats, wrote in the letters yesterday. “They also appear to conflict with independent analyses.”

Can you tell how “concerned” they are?  By “independent analyses”, they mean partisan number crunchers jerry-rigging cherry-picked data.  The Powerline link has scans of the letters sent to the CEOs without notice after 6pm yesterday afternoon.

After all, what government doesn’t need to have it’s own telecommunications company?  AT&T already has a strong union so when those mass layoffs and benefits cuts hit our newly recess appointed, Senate rejected National Labor Relation Board union thug Craig Becker might take it personally.

What Would Chavez Do?  Why not nationalize AT&T?

We already need to provide high-speed internet access to the inner city to “level the playing field” and who better to do it?  Sure, I didn’t have high-speed until about 2 years and I work for a living and pay for it – but that’s not fair.  Much like health care, a 6 megabyte high-speed line is covered in The Constitution under the “good and welfare clause”.

Government in control of all of your viewing preferences, internet search histories, and cell phone calls.

They will not stop until you are bicycling 60 miles to and from work everyday to give 100% of your paycheck to them.

After all, nothing makes more sense than taking over the car companies when you don’t want people driving cars or using gas.

Or taking over the largest telecommunications company in the country when you want to blackmail people from telling the truth about you.

Or taking over Caterpillar if you’re planning to build those new high-speed bike lanes that will save the economy and create “shovel-ready” jobs or putting those nasty coal miners out of business.  Can’t mine coal that provides 48% of the country’s energy without that yellow equipment.  He’s just doing what he said he would do.

Put nothing past these Marxists.  The hammer and sickle fit.

Adam Baldwin Interview

One of Hollywood’s out of the closet conservatives, Adam Baldwin, gives PJM’s Ed Driscoll a great interview.

I admit that I wasn’t a Firefly fan so I can’t relate to the cult following. However, Baldwin in on our family’s favorite show, Chuck. He plays super-patriot Major Casey with just a dash of self-deprecating second amendment love.

You might know him best from his role as Animal Mother in Full Metal Jacket.

Anyway, if you’re a fan and are interested in his journey from Hollywood liberal to one of Big Hollywood’s major contributors, listen to the interview.

Rachel Maddow Still Not Attractive

Unless you find that whole River Phoenix in “Stand By Me” look attractive in a 40 year old he/she/it.

In related news, most Tea Partiers are still not domestic terrorists as none have been asked to ghostwrite  Obama’s next “autobiography”.

Our several readers will also be surprised to learn that it was not I that rammed my car into an Obamatard on Blair Boulevard though I have little doubt they probably deserved it for something they did.  Read any Nashville liberal blogger for about 5 minutes and you’ll start ramming your cars into them too.

Also, Eric Cantor’s office could not possibly have come from a leftwing nutbag but rather just your run-of-the-mill “random act of gunfire”.    Those whacky guns just randomly firing.

And if you think massive unemployment, worldwide instability, domestic strife and an economy teetering on a relapse is too depressing – just relaaaaax.  It’s been the greatest week in a long time.

Fräu Frum: We Hate Thuggish Demagoguery

And what better place to complain about that than on that model of civility – The Huffinglue Post:

The thuggish demagoguery of the Limbaughs and Becks is a trait we once derided in the old socialist Left. Well boys, take a look in the mirror. It is us now.

But to return to Washington and dogs: Along with the bile, there has been an equally considerable outpouring of support and defense, from friends and foes alike, who — whether they agree with David or not — are horrified by the guillotine that is being set up in the public square of democratic debate. They understand that nothing good can come of this, for anyone of any political stripe.

For this support, we are both very grateful.

Oh, my aching mealticket.  In his defense, she notes how Canadian socialists really admired his debate style.  Funny how he adapted that for Democrat socialists too.

As one might easily surmise, the entire comments thread consists of “former Republicans” who’ve been turned off by their Nazi ways.  What ways would those be?  Nationalizing the auto industry, threatening the banks that the only thing between them and the pitchforks is the President’s magnanimity, busing union thugs to the homes of insurance execs?  Persecuting the Jews?

Which ways?  Tell me, oh Admonisher of All Things Thug.  Because your venue of choice to complain about thuggery is pretty cool with it.

Don’t worry, hon.  He’ll be collecting his fee from the Center for American Progress and Media Matters in no time and you’ll be back up to the straps of your cocktail dress in chicken heart brochettes and short ribs braised in coffee anchillo chiles.

You’ve got to watch out for that David Brock. He knows what your hubby really needs in a woman.

A big skirt to hide behind.

You can catch Fräu Frum elaborating on good table manners and what it means to be a conservative next week as she rails against icky partisans and fist bumps with Ed Schultz and Olbermann.

Hanging By A Dingellberry

At first I thought this was just going to be a quick “separated at birth” post until I realized that Frank N. Berry was actually Dingell Berry’s father.  All these years, his legacy of undead insurrection being forced down children’s throats.  What a sick-O.

It occurred to me when he lurched toward the microphone after the healthcare vote like some handicapped despot clutching at the throat of a free America as the villagers grabbed torches and pitchforks thinking that he was going to throw a little girl in attendance into the river.

After defusing the crowd with a stirring “Fire bad” segue, he regaled the audience with tales of his father looking up smiling at the passage of the bill.

Early on in his career, Dingell, Sr. was a union organizer.  In fact, he wrote a letter urging Franklin Roosevelt to realize his vision of unionizing a lot Japanese-Americans in an internment camp during World War II.  Even then, he understood the importance of leadership in helping to control the people – a vision that he would later pass on to his son through a complicated and experimental genome therapy treatment while but a young lad in his test tube.

From there it was a short jaunt to General Mills where the elder Dingell began fomenting rebellion between Arnell “Count Chocula” Jones and the 2nd shift supervisor “Lucky” Shaugnessy; a bigoted Irish midget who would not re-distribute his pot of gold with the less fortunate.

In what would be a sign of things to come, Dingell Berry, Sr. would hone his community organizing skills at local cemeteries with what would be a hallmark of Democratic machine politics – Get Out The Vote Drives.

Boo-Ya:  Dingell Berry and Count Chocula helping the late Earl “Booberry” McConnell exercise his franchise.

Zombie FrankenKennedy Murders Beyond The Grave

It’s too late to break out the torches and pitchforks.  Undead Zombie FrankenKennedy has satisfied his portly bloodlust and returned to the murky depths of Hell as the demon of Health Careless Reform stalks us from the high grass of government.

But like all abominations against Christ, he fought the laws of God until he exacted his revenge on all mankind.

The Power of Christ compels you Zombie Kennedy!

The late senator’s widow, Vicki Reggie Kennedy, spent hours on Sunday at the simple white cross at Arlington National Cemetery marking where her husband was laid to rest only seven months ago. Ted Kennedy’s youngest son, Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (D-R.I.), visited on Monday morning and left a hand-written note that read: “Dad, the unfinished business is done.”

When confronted by the embodied soul of the damned, Joe Biden exclaimed, “Wow.  That was fucking creepy.”

Rest now, Zombie Kennedy.   Your work here is done.   You’ve murdered enough people from beyond the grave for one day.

Whenever an office secretary is being hassled by a married man at the end of the bar.  Whenever a waitress is sexually assaulted on the way to her car.  Or when a frisky staffer is dropped into the drink to suffocate to death in a watery grave….we know your spirit lives on.

Until next time, muhahahaha.

Defense Cuts Should Pay For ObamaCare

But don’t fret.  The Pentagon will be able to deploy Pelosi’s panty shield to protect us from incoming missiles:

“Most powerful woman in American history?” “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer asked Pelosi today, citing an article in The Economist. Pelosi, maintaining the smiling poker player’s mask that is her trademark, paused for a moment before saying brightly, “That sounds good.

That’s not a “smiling poker player’s mask”.    It’s Perma-Grin from years of plastic surgery.

Still her trademark though so it’s half right.

Bart Stupak… cheapest whore in Washington?

I question the timing:

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Bart Stupak (D-Menominee) announced three airports in northern Michigan have received grants totaling $726,409 for airport maintenance and improvements. The funding was provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration.

Yeah, I know…the grants were awarded on Friday, before he he left the White House on Sunday with worn-out knees. But maybe his grandstanding was all show anyway, according to Mark Tapscott at the Washington Examiner:

Give Rep. Bart Stupak, D-MI, credit, the guy knows how to act. He kept up the charade of opposing Obamacare on principle – no abortion funding with tax dollars – right to the end, then switched once he was satisfied he’d found a sufficient fig leaf to be able to work the issue both ways.

This is classic political hypocrisy. But it’s not like Stupak didn’t tell us that’s what he would do before. Speaking in a constituent meeting in Cheboygan Oct. 24, 2009, Stupak laid out a scenario that is eerily like what just transpired in the nation’s capitol. Substitute “Executive Order” for “Amendment” in Stupak’s description, and you’ve got it.

This Is What The Tyranny Of The Majority Looks Like – 50.3%

If Democrats only pass this monstrosity through the House with 219 votes, they will have socialized 1/6 of our economy on the thinnest of majorities.

Even with an open invitation to bribery, they couldn’t muster 1% above the bare minimum to support the bill that they wrote.

How pathetic.

Welcome to the perpetual unemployment line, America.  You voted for it.

50.3% practicing Don’t-Look-Down Obamanomics.

While Treasuries backed by the full faith and credit of the government typically yield less than corporate debt, the relationship has flipped as Moody’s Investors Service predicts the U.S. will spend more on debt service as a percentage of revenue this year than any other top-rated country except the U.K. America will use about 7 percent of taxes for debt payments in 2010 and almost 11 percent in 2013, moving “substantially” closer to losing its AAA rating, Moody’s said last week.

That is absurd.  11% to debt service.  But what’s it all mean, Basil???

Imagine Uncle Sam taking his beat up jalopy to TitleMax and cashing his check at the liquor store.

It means -  How many more “unexpected” jobs reports do you think you’re going to see before you learn to expect high unemployment?  Even Administration Lackey Gheitner admitted as much.  That was before this bill. This bill is a death sentence for small businesses looking to hire.

I’ll Have The Spineless Cooper With Extra Lily-Liver

You can always count on good, ole Coop.  Just a simple country boy who used to carry around the federal budget and wave it in everybody’s faces during the Bush years complaining about that thar spendin’ in Warshington.

I woke up this Sunday morning, said my prayers, and finally decided that I will vote YES on health care reform.

Having heard from tens of thousands of Middle Tennesseans on all sides of the issue (including the flood of messages in the last few days and hours), and having spent months studying the various bills, I know that America must improve its health care system because it is unsustainable. This legislation will make it better.

You can almost see him in his jammies kneelin’ by the bedside sayin’ his prayers. He just now decided.  What a coward.

And sweet Baby Jesus said, thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods.   Oh, wait!  Wrong verse.  You shall not steal?  Nope.

Observe the sabbath day and keep it holy, as the Lord your God commanded you.. Un-uh. Does this weekend count?  You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

Eh, forget it.  The Bible says a lot of stuff but Reverend Jim “Jones” Cooper’s on the mic and mixin’ up a pitcher of that old school funk.

Although CBO claims that the legislation will reduce deficits in the first ten years by over $100 billion, and by over $1 trillion after that, you don’t have to believe CBO to realize that, even if you assume zero deficit reduction, this is a huge improvement in the policymaking of recent years. In plain English, this bill is paid for, and may even save big money.

And when your wife buys $400 worth of shoes that were on sale, you actually saved big money.

I am well aware of the fact that this is a big vote, and perhaps a career-limiting decision.

You said it.  You may have fended off some weak, leftwing primary challenger (who will in all likelihood dropout now) but you’ve lost your seat.


You know who the real losers today are?  If you guessed people on the Right who didn’t sellout any semblance of principle by signing on to the most expensive entitlement program in human history chances are you’re already auditioning for a communications job for Obama:

A huge part of the blame for today’s disaster attaches to conservatives and Republicans ourselves (ed. – what’s this “ourselves” shit, kimosabe?).

At the beginning of this process we made a strategic decision: unlike, say, Democrats in 2001 when President Bush proposed his first tax cut, we would make no deal with the administration. No negotiations, no compromise, nothing. We were going for all the marbles. This would be Obama’s Waterloo – just as healthcare was Clinton’s in 1994.

This time, when we went for all the marbles, we ended with none.

Could a deal have been reached? Who knows? But we do know that the gap between this plan and traditional Republican ideas is not very big. The Obama plan has a broad family resemblance to Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts plan.

Frum’s shameful joy overlooks the usual gaggle of weak-kneed, northeastern liberal Republicans and Lispy Graham who are quick to roll over and slap an asscheek in pursuit of some one-way jackhammer bipartisanship.

That’s certainly one way to describe a bill so odious that the President had to shove a feeding tube down his own party’s throat filled with dirty Chicago politics in pursuit of an anorexic, one vote win.  Really.  He had to bribe his own people to vote for the bill they wrote alone in secret.

Everybody start listening to that Frum guy.  And rent Stalag 17 while you’re at it.

Stupak Flipped

Live on Fox right now. Stupak, who has “always been for health care reform” just said that he’ll accept an executive order that bans federal funding for abortion after the bill is passed. His vote is now bought and paid for.

Marcy Kaptur takes the stage and says that with universal health-care, abortions rates will drop because (I think) that a person who now has access to free healthcare will not abort a child because they are now covered.

Also, she is pro-life – the life of working families, women and the disembodied spirit of Margaret Sanger.
