Month: March 2011

Did Porkulus Pay For Speed Bumps On The Road To Damascus?

And why can’t anyone speak the truth about Syria.  I mean, I know why Hijab Nancy won’t speak about Syria.

Assad treated her like the filthy little whore she is, threw a paperbag over her head and road her like the convoy carrying WMDs out of Iraq.  Squealed like a little piggy she did.

And the stink of her Sizzlean and hot garbage has got Krauthammer bent out of all kinds of shape:

“Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer.”
Hillary Clinton
on Bashar al-Assad, March 27

Few things said by this administration in its two years can match this one for moral bankruptcy and strategic incomprehensibility.

Syria is like the French Riviera for the Communist Left for some reason.  They loved to go there during the Bush years.  Can someone fill me in on why exactly?  Is it because Assad wears a suit and doesn’t walk around in bed linens or military garb with mirrored sunglasses and gold plated epaulets all day?

Their feelings on the subject of people being clean and articulate is well documented.  Nevermind what’s coming out of their mouths.

Here are people demonstrating against a dictatorship that repeatedly uses live fire on its own people, a regime that in 1982 killed 20,000 in Hama and then paved the dead over.

Here are insanely courageous people demanding reform — and the U.S. secretary of state tells the world that the thug ordering the shooting of innocents already is a reformer, thus effectively endorsing the Baath party line — “We are all reformers,” Assad told parliament — and undermining the demonstrators’ cause.

Third, it’s strategically incomprehensible. Sometimes you cover for a repressive ally because you need it for U.S. national security. Hence our muted words about Bahrain. Hence our slow response on Egypt. But there are rare times when strategic interest and moral imperative coincide completely. Syria is one such — a monstrous police state whose regime consistently works to thwart U.S. interests in the region.

During the worst days of the Iraq War, this regime funneled terrorists into Iraq to fight U.S. troops and Iraqi allies. It is dripping with Lebanese blood as well, being behind the murder of independent journalists and democrats, including former Prime Minister Rafiq al-Hariri.

This year, it helped topple the pro-Western government of Hariri’s son, Saad, and put Lebanon under the thumb of the virulently anti-Western Hezbollah. Syria is a partner in nuclear proliferation with North Korea. It is Iran’s agent and closest Arab ally, granting it an outlet on the Mediterranean. Those two Iranian warships that went through the Suez Canal last month docked at the Syrian port of Latakia, a long-sought Iranian penetration of the Mediterranean.

Take the whole thing out for a spin.  Kick the tires.

Hlllary Clinton is a Grade A+ moron.  You’d never know it by how wildly popular she is.  Just ask her old pollster since he’s the one who ran the survey that determined her to be The Most Popular Secretary of State Evar.  Carrot Top “Reset Button” Diplomacy was such a hit.

The same week she’s garbling Obama’s “get rid of Qaddafi/don’t get rid of Qaddafi”, “it’s of paramount national interest/not really in our interest at all” misdirection and praising the Torquemada of Damascus.

What’s not to love?

I’d ask how the military recruitment numbers are going to see how many people are chomping at the bit to join the US Armed Services so they can serve at the pleasure of the Arab League but since the news hasn’t mentioned that once burning question since November 2008 I already know.

It’s snug and tucked away with the monthly casualty numbers and front page flag-draped-coffin cover stories that don’t warrant a mention now either.



The Sheriff and The Great Train Robbery

So Vice President Biden is being feted for bringing home enough bacon to complete Amtrak’s $37.7 million breakfast.

Saturday was the exception as Delaware’s most famous politician saw the 104-year-old building renamed in his honor. The building on French Street will be referred to as the Joseph R. Biden Jr. Railroad Station, although it still will be known as the Wilmington station on train timetables.

Sure, why not? Biden has been an enthusiastic mass-transit populist and Amtrak has been a faithful money pit. In other words – a match made in heaven.

Unfortunately, like other liberal visions of the Divine, it just doesn’t work.

Let’s say, your graphic designer sister from California is visiting and she would like nothing more than a day at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan. Let’s also say you are a cranky neo-conservative but you’re willing to suck up your political sensibilities for a day and enjoy the culture with your little sister and lovely wife.

Since we’re totally suspending belief, try to imagine that your reluctant tour guide considers taking the train. You see, dear reader, I’ve been to New York City a few times and there are many reasons not to take a car. Navigating through the taxis can give you an ulcer the approximate size and shape of Ed Koch’s head. Also, being an East Coast transplant, I’m still getting over the sticker shock of bridge tolls, highway tolls and parking prices.

So this is what you’re looking at:

Gas: 120 miles / 20 miles per gallon X $3.75 /gallon = $22.50
Today gas is $3.55 and my mileage is actually closer to 24 mpg. (I’m trying to be generous.)

Road tolls: Round trip on the scenic New Jersey Turnpike $7.70 X 2 = $15.40

Tunnel toll: Lincoln Tunnel (going back to New Jersey is free!!) $8.00

Parking in the Big Apple: Good luck getting the $25 parking near the Museum. Nope the standard pound-me-in-the-tush rate and a little walk for us. $45.00


Gas 22.50
New Jersey Turnpike 15.40
Tunnel 8.00
Parking 45.00
Total $90.90

Not cheap by normal people standards, but we are talking about New York here.

And the alternative – Amtrak from the Sheriff Joe station to Penn Station: $165.00

So there you have it – a $75 premium to do the right thing and partake of the nation’s best mass transit system.

Juan Cole: Liberal Chickenhawk And The Date Raping Of Congress on Libya

Damn you, archives.  Damn you!

It’s too delicious.  Purveyor of pejoratives, Juan Cole of Misinformed Comment has put his war face on – Raawwwrr!  Or should I say, bok-bok-ba-kok:


I would like to urge the Left to learn to chew gum and walk at the same time. It is possible to reason our way through, on a case-by-case basis, to an ethical progressive position that supports the ordinary folk in their travails in places like Libya. If we just don’t care if the people of Benghazi are subjected to murder and repression on a vast scale, we aren’t people of the Left.

It’s not that they can’t “reason their way” into Libya, it’s that it is a direct contradiction from every position they vehemently supported for the most memorable moments of the last, easily researched decade.  To make the strident case for Liberal Hypocrisy on military intervention in Libya’s Civil War.

We can’t just stand idly by while “ordinary folk” are murdered and repressed on a “vast scale”.  Funny.  That’s exactly what you did on Iraq and Afghanistan.   Are you saying that Libyan scale is more vast than Saddam Hussein’s Iraq?  It couldn’t be that your thumb is on that scale now that a Democrat is in the White House.

Before Obama’s gas prices go up any more, let’s take a trip down memory lane:

2/28/2006 – While tut-tutting on the news of over 1,300 people killed in sectarian violence in Iraq and arguing  for reducing our overburdened, stretched-thin troops in Iraq so that Iraqi “ordinary” folks” wouldn’t be subject to murder and oppression on a “vast scale” –

The LA Times reports that the recent violence in Iraq has provoked a debate in the Pentagon about planned troop draw-downs in Iraq. Some officers think it is crazy to reduce the number now. Others believe that the Iraqis will never step up to the plate as long as they can call in US soldiers. The article quotes Michael Rubin of the American Enterprise Institute (Likud Branch), who is a civilian chickenhawk even though he is young enough so that he could have joined the military and served in Iraq, as saying that it is not the right time to bring home the troops.

My, my, my.  We’re still in Iraq yet now Colonel Cole is willing to send those brave souls to Libya and not let them come home.  Encourage your readers to join the military and bring home something Not Victory, since we’re not imperialists in Libya.  I’d hate for you to be a Chickenhawk ™, Juan.

2/6/05 – Re-posting a letter from one of his lickspittle minions to Jonah Goldberg:

In your post titled “EMPIRICISM”, you quote a reader who seems to value concepts above experience. In many ways, this may be a good explanation of the root of your feud with Cole. By all appearances, you view the war in Iraq much the way you might treat today’s Superbowl. Its something about which you feel free to state strong opinions and something which might provoke a certain amount of emotional argument.

You might win or lose a few dollars and/or the ability to gloat for a few days. But, in the end, its simply entertainment. Certainly, despite the strength of your convictions about aspects of the game, you don’t feel yourself qualified to actually take the place of Belichick or Reid. You wouldn’t consider for a moment strapping on a helmet and lining up in place of TO.

Cole, on the other hand, knows that war is not a game. He lived in war-torn Beirut and knows the realities of civil strife.

Do you feel any responsibility for the real and empirical deaths that have occurred due to your mistakes of concept and theory? Finally, I really appreciate your frankness in explaining why you are not currently serving in “the kill zone”. It is the best and most honest display of chickenhawk hypocrisy I have yet to come across. It confirms my belief that the war in Iraq is little more than a game to you.

Game on!  I’ve never seen a Superbowl where the teams just switched sides like this.  Now Cole wants to be the chickenhawk hypocrite.  Your helmet is waiting in “the killzone”, sir.

9/22/03 – On Max Cleland comparing our unnecessary intervention into the peace-filled, protester friendly streets of Iraq:

Iraq and Vietnam

Max Cleland, former Georgia senator and a decorated war hero from the Vietnam era, who lost three limbs in that war, is comparing Iraq to the Vietnam War. When he says it, it is chilling. (Note, he was defeated in his campaign for another term in the senate by some chickenhawk Republican who characterized Cleland as unpatriotic for not supporting the Iraq war).

Apparently Max never learned how to “roll and chew gum at the same time”.

4/2/03 – On intervention in Iraq creating instability elsewhere and the utopianism of the chickenhawks:

But if unrest continues to brew over this issue in Indonesia, an anti-American government could come to power in Indonesia eventually, and Islamists could become powerful. They aren’t, now, and Indonesia’s experiment in open society has certainly been damaged by the US war in Iraq. People like Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz think they can have their cake [war in Iraq, support for Sharon in Israel] and eat it too [spread of liberalism and democracy in the Muslim world]. But it is possible that these two goals are incompatible with one another. Isaiah Berlin warned us about incompatible ideals. The chickenhawks in Washington are imbued with a utopianism (at least in their rhetoric) of which he would have disapproved.

But attacking Qaddafi and leaving open the option of him remaining in power is going to create Heaven on Earth when the civil warring factions are left without an occupying army to watch over them.

3/17/03 – Those Neo-con Jews chickenhawks want to take over Egypt!

*The Muslim Brotherhood representatives in the Egyptian parliament have demanded that Egypt forbid the US to transport war ships to the Gulf via the Suez Canal. They also want the Mubarak regime to refuse to accept the $2 bn. in aid received from the US every year (most of it anyway goes to US firms who supply goods and weapons to Egypt). Next the chickenhawks will be saying we need to occupy the Suez Canal zone.

No, we should occupy Tripoli.

3/9/08 – On Rep. Steve King commenting on what an Obama election would look like to the much bally-hooed “Arab Street”:

Actually, I can’t find any evidence whatsoever of anyone in the Muslim world noticing what Barack Obama’s middle name is. Hussein in that part of the world is like “Steve” over here. Just as I don’t get happy that King’s name is “Steve,” they don’t care what Obama’s name is. And, I presume that King, a chickenhawk, also has a problem with American war hero Omar Bradley being named “Omar.”

No word yet on what platoon Obama served in.  Perhaps his DD-214 is locked up in a safe in Hawaii too.

8/14/07 – On a fevered dream about Karl Rove resigning:

An early and avid supporter of war, Rove did everything in his power to prepare the American people for a large scale military conflict. During the Iraq War, he increased his power and influence through shifting alliances with other Republican leaders. By late 2006, the war had turned into a disaster for the Coalition powers, but this only spurred Rove to intensify the propaganda by urging the Americans to accept the idea of total war and mobilization, which he called “the surge.” Rove remained with Bush almost to the very end.

His height exposed him to ridicule and humiliation in a society that worshipped physical prowess. A chickenhawk, he later frequently misrepresented himself as qualified to make pronouncements on war.

Hrm, a physically weak presidential advisor pronouncing thusly on War as opposed to the hulking uber-macho physique of your typical college professor/MSNBC talking head.  I guess that would qualify as a Doughboy, technically.

10/15/06 – On the heroism of John Murtha’s call for defeat in Iraq:

Rep. John P. Murtha is among the bravest men in the US Congress. He minds chickenhawks like Dick Cheney and George W. Bush insinuating that he is a coward or a defeatist for arguing that the US should draw down its troops in Iraq and let the Iraqis sort things out for themselves.

Let those Libyan sort things out for themselves.  What a novel idea.  Glad you thought of it first.  Oh, wait.

4/15/06 – On newly retired Major General John Batiste fragging Donald Rumsfeld and complaining that there Weren’t Enough Troops on The Ground:

Retired Major General John Batiste said Friday of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, “We went to war with a flawed plan that didn’t account for the hard work to build the peace after we took down the regime . . .” and added, “We also served under a secretary of defense who didn’t understand leadership, who was abusive, who was arrogant and who didn’t build a strong team.” He is the latest in a string of retired generals to call on Rumsfeld to step down.

There has been some snarking that Gen. Batiste did not speak out while in uniform. These comments come from civilian chickenhawks.

We’ll see how well received any comments criticizing the lack of strategy and clarity on Libya from military personnel about their superiors are from Col. Cole.  Nay, they should be encouraged to speak out publicly against their commanders now so that liberal chickenhawks can’t criticize them for retiring to state their opinions.  From some strange reason, I can imagine that they’ll be traitors and Qaddafi sympathizing white supremacists.

This is where the Date Rape comes in.  First, the suave Obama’s going to play it cool and call the Congress up this week after not seeming too eager to notify them about going out in a War together.  The Arab League allegedly vouched for his bona fides and they’re like the of the Middle East.

After an evening of lively conversation about People Wanting to Live Free,  the tipsy strumpet of Congress will be invited to go back to his place where he’ll only want to stick the tip of the US forces into a Libya aching for our troops to fill their gaping holes with smart diplomacy.

First it will be “just for a minute”.  Come on, all of the rest of The Coalition is doing it.  *Drinks*  Then it will be days, not weeks.  Then it will be weeks, not months. *Puts his hand on our leg*  In fact, it’s already gone to months, not years.

How long is this date going to last exactly?

It will be No Troops on the ground.  Until it’s “troops on the ground – limited in scope (under NATO no less and thus not US troops on the ground)- to deliver humanitarian aid and support the relief effort”.  Then it will be troops on the ground just to make the area safe for humanitarian aid by clearing out Qaddafi’s terrorists dressed as civilians.

American troops on the ground are protected by the prophylactic rubber of International Consensus.

Then it will be “I never said we would never put troops on the ground – we’ve always maintained we needed troops on the ground and to characterize the President’s position which he has held since the beginning any other way is, quite frankly, a bit disappointing in this unpatriotic line of questioning Mr. Tapper.”

In fact, our little adventure won’t even cost money.  It will SAVE money!  How many Middle Eastern democracies have been created or saved by bombing Libya with unicorn-powered peace missiles filled with rice and medicine?  All of them I bet.



Not The Chicago Way

Days, not weeks.

When Eliot Ness went after organized crime did he say that Al Capone could stay a free man, free to terrorize the citizenry and reconstitute his cabal, once the streets were cleaned up?

This doesn’t make any sense at all.

Perhaps if Obama would walk through Qaddafi’s neighborhood and Qaddafi questioned him about his policies being socialist then Obama could summon the courage to destroy him.

Also Charles Maldonado’s Fault

Go home, union lackey:

Hammered by the automobile industry’s decline, Detroit’s population plummeted 25 percent over the past decade amid an economic downturn so severe that Michigan was the only state that failed to gain residents, according to 2010 Census data released Tuesday.

Detroit is the town that unions built and then destroyed.  If you think they’re such a great idea, then go back to where you came from and make it work.



Michelle Obama Is A Dumb, Fat Twat

And Obamacare would need to cover the Dent Doctor to pull all the dings out of her hail-damaged ass.

Bill Maher uttered a female vulgarism when referring to former Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin on his HBO show Friday night.

“Did you hear this – Sarah Palin finally heard what happened in Japan and she’s demanding that we invade ‘Tsunami,’” Maher said. “I mean she said, ‘These ‘Tsunamians’ will not get away with this.’ Oh speaking of dumb tw**s, did you…”

Maher was offering an imagined Palin response in an apparent attempt at humor, as Palin had made no such statement.

The National Organization for Women (NOW) refused to comment on Maher’s use of the derogatory term. A rep told it is a “known fact” that NOW does not correspond with FOX News.

This is from a midget who beats up his black hookers.

I know what you’re thinking. How dare I call her dumb? After all, wasting an Ivy League education majoring in Sociology and minoring in Afro-American Studies (oOooOoo, so hard) as a literal affirmative action placement because her brother played on Princeton’s basketball team and got her enrolled means she’s smart about pimping her race and doesn’t that count?

Umm, no. No it doesn’t.

But NOT, formerly NOW, now known as the National Organization of Twats has no comment on Maher’s remarks.

I expect no less from the hypocritical cunts who exiled Tammy Bruce so they could support OJ Simpson murdering his ex-wife.

NAG, NAG, NAG Update: NOT reluctantly renounces Bill Maher’s comments once asked by a reporter not from Fox News.  And I do mean reluctantly:

In the wake of Bill Maher’s tasteless slur against Sarah Palin Friday night, in which he called the former Alaska governor a “twat,” the National Organization for Woman (NOW) has not only denounced the use of such sexist words, but also issued a warning to conservatives who they believe are attempting to use the issue to discredit their organization: “We are on to you, right-wingers.”

“Listen, supposedly progressive men (ok, and women, too): Cut the crap! Stop degrading women with whom you disagree and/or don’t like by using female body terms or other gender-associated slurs,” Lisa Bennett, NOW communications director wrote in a statement.

In addition to chastising men (and women) like Maher who use their position as progressives as a shield against charges of sexism, NOW made it clear that their denouncement of Maher’s sexist remark toward Palin is in no way an endorsement of her or conservative policies.

“You’re trying to take up our time getting us to defend your friend Sarah Palin. If you keep us busy defending her, we have less time to defend women’s bodies from the onslaught of reproductive rights attacks and other threats to our freedom, safety, livelihood, etc,” wrote Bennett. “Sorry, but we can’t defend Palin or even Hillary Clinton from every sexist insult hurled at them in the media. That task would be impossible, and it would consume us. You know this would not be a productive way to fight for women’s equal rights, which is why you want us stuck in this morass.”

They certainly do seem to have a stick up their morass.  So that’s one line about Maher and then a paragraphs long rant against conservatives for pointing out their hypocrisy.

Juanita Broaddrick is still available for comment, Clinton coddlers.

Newsweek Is A Filthy, Naughty Linkwhore

Liberals are universally too clever by half. Particularly those at Newsweak.

After being sold for a dollar to a Far Left California Congresswoman, they’re taking The Nashville City Paper route and insulting their readership in an attempt to gain advertisers.  Is that how Old Media papers used to work when they were successful?  This week’s cover story:

How Dumb Are We?

NEWSWEEK gave 1,000 Americans the U.S. Citizenship Test–38 percent failed. The country’s future is imperiled by our ignorance.

Like all liberal attempts to fingerpoint, there are four more fingers pointing back at themselves.

Exit question:  If people are so stupid, how is this not the teacher’s union fault?  They’re the ones who failed to educate them about US history after all.  Did they miss that class in between Gender Studies and Ecology?

Correction: This is all Charles Maldonado’s wife’s fault.

Here’s Your Hat, What’s Your Hurry?

Worth Every Penny: Even at the low, low cost of FREE no one is reading your agitprop and we'd love to see those Enron accounting circulation numbers.

In case no one has seen a City Paper rack recently, the decline in readership is proportional to it’s Nashville Scene-ification.  To wit, today’s COVER STORY is a 3,000+ word liberal broadside by a freelancing, freeloading Michigander transplant who mooches off his Nashville teacher wife in support of Unions:

Here’s the thing: I believe in unions. I’m not supposed to say that for a number of good reasons. But I think I might be over that now, being free to say the following.

The anti-union legislation now making its way toward passage in our state legislature is not only mean-spirited and unnecessary, but it’s the worst kind of shallow, cynical politics that this shallow, cynical country can produce.

Not shallow and cynical enough for us to turn away all of your illegal aliens, eh Chuckles?

For those J-School grads out there, this is what a resignation looks like.  Charles Maldonado is no longer a credible source for any reporting, freelance or otherwise, and should be summarily dismissed from ever filing for The Nashville City Paper again.  But we know that won’t happen because some editor looked at his 3,000+ word hate screed and thought “Let’s put this on the cover!”

It gets better.

I do not for one second believe that Republicans in the state legislature believe their rhetoric about teachers’ unions. In saying that I’m being generous to them, because if they did believe it, they’d be as gullible and incapable of critical thinking as they present themselves to be. Consider that for a second now, and then again after you finish reading how virtually every bit of factual information in this “debate” over unions has been distorted by officeholders currently waging a political war.

I’m a reporter. I can’t even say any of the above aloud under normal circumstances, let alone write it for publication, but there it is. I’d offer my letter of resignation, but I’m a freelancer, and I can’t resign from my non-job.

Is that final sentence the crux of this bird-flipping to red state Tennessee?  The ball-less Nashville City Paper / Scene staff don’t have the guts to sign the editorial themselves so they farm it to an out-of-state freelancer to provide cover for their cowardice?

I’m also from Michigan, and that means I grew up believing that the labor movement is either directly or indirectly responsible for many good things, not just greed, graft, corruption, political manipulation, and the widescale theft of billions from public treasuries.

That one confused me.  Is he acknowledging Union greed, graft, corruption, political manipulation and widescale theft of public treasuries or is he projecting that onto Republicans?

I think we can all agree that Tennessee would do well to emulate Detroit’s policies and all the good Unions have done for them.

Among them: the 40-hour work week; workplace safety regulations; whistleblower protection; some measure of dignity for people who work for a living; and more or less creating the American middle class. But then again, I was brainwashed. I’m sure if I were from Tennessee, I would know that Davy Crockett did most of that.

So if you don’t subscribe to Chuckle’s pro-union view then you’re a backwater hick who thinks Davey Crockett invented OSHA.  Fuck you, seriously.

Toot-toot-toot.  Unionists belt out “40 Hour Work Week” like it was their only number one hit from 1899 and they’ll play it until Dick Clark quits inviting them on Bandstand.

The last and best reason for me to believe in unions is that my wife, Jenny, who is by far the breadwinner in our home — somehow managing to outshine the $7,159 I pulled in last year by a factor of, let’s say, a lot — is herself a Metro Nashville Public Schools teacher, and thus, the current target of choice for the state GOP’s campaign of folksy divisiveness and arbitrary, albeit maybe focus-grouped, derision. (Or at least she’s one of a select few that includes women, non-Christians — especially Muslims and to a slightly lesser degree seculars — poor people, sick people, children unless they’re not born yet, the whole LGBT spectrum, all immigrants except the ones from business-y countries, and anyone uncomfortable with the idea of being armed all of the time. I think that covers the big ones.)

The last and best reason – unions personally enrich me!

Oh, and if you don’t support giving this jackoff who moved from Michigan to Tennessee because it was so great there then you also hate the poor, the sick, Muslims, atheists, the almighty chirren, gays, spics, wops, dagos, trannies, handicapped wheelchair ramps, free internet access, Black History Month, low-fat margarine, climate change and NPR.  Did we forget anyone?

This is the cover story of a once somewhat respectable DAILY paper now reduced to being the Monday and Thursday version of the Nashville Scene.

A loss of bargaining rights will leave Jenny with nothing between her and lower wages, a reasonable pension and health care contribution, and undoubtedly, wide-scale layoffs at some point.

She’ll still has you, Romeo.  Sitting at home on your ass.  Pulling down $7k large on your populist soapbox being paid to pretend to be a reporter.  I believe it was the famous Beatle Keith Moon who said, “all you need is love”.

Wide scale layoffs from the government hasn’t happened in Obama’s Depression.  Layoffs are what people in the private sector feel.

“You have no idea what it’s like to get in the car, every day, to and from work, and listen to people in the news trashing your profession,” Jenny said.

Of course not.  No one could.  Unless they happened to work for a bank, an energy company, Wal-Mart, an insurance company, a Japanese auto manufacturer who employs Americans, the US Chamber of Commerce, and any other private sector company during Obama’s Two Minutes Hate against non-government business.

It rambles on and on and on and on and on everything from Tennessee unionists not being in-your-face enough like those successful Michigan ones to wild accusations about CCA (the private prison company) running it’s own Fight Club.  You broke Rule #1, Chucky!

The Closer:

The Wrong side has always been composed of living people who likely don’t realize, in the moment, that their actions and beliefs would one day be judged as bankrupt. At one time you could have asked some of them, ordinary mortal humans like Joe McCarthy or George Wallace, how it feels to have your life worked over like that, your ordinary mortal human actions retold over and over again as the bad guy part in a morality play for so many consecutive years. It would have to be a kind of living hell, made all the worse by the fact that it was the hell nearly everyone thought they deserved.

We’ve already been judged as bankrupt.  Literally.  Our country is bankrupt.  Not morally.  Financially.  Not bending over for unions does not mean people supported George Wallace turning firehoses on black people, you delusional asshole.  Although Joe McCarthy would have a field day with all of the certified Communists in the Labor movement.

There goes Separation of Church and State out the window again.  We live in “Hells we think we deserve” but Heaven is available if you want the government to provide it for you.

Just ask for forgiveness on bended knee before your secular god.  Your handout will runneth over.

I’ll keep my closer short:

You take to the pages of a once respectable paper ruined by your deadbeat bosses to insult Tennesseans as racist hillbillies who think Davey Crockett invented the light bulb.

This is how you ask for people to support your position.  Then again, it’s really not.  You know you’ve lost so you’re setting fire to the oil wells with the help of your cowardly editors hiding under the skirt of your tenuous employment relationship that was their responsibility.

Go back to Michigan, asshole, and take your moron wife with you where you will be appreciated.

And for the Scene Editors, if you gave a shit about Charles Maldonado you could have given him a full-time job and offered him healthcare coverage.  Would that have cut into Jeff Woods’ skull simonizing budget or Jim Ridley’s Analese allowance?  Judging by the current staff, evidently he’s not white enough.

You gave a Facebook rant cover story to a guy who’s welfare is your responsibility.  Gutless, blame shifting cowards.  This was the editorial equivalent of a suicide bombing of your own paper’s last couple of readers.

Out of State Bump For Me, Not For Thee

I try to keep my individual outrages in order.  This particular one was from last week after the Commie-Media sued Wisconsin’s Gov. Walker for not producing thousands of e-mails for them to pour through – chop! chop! – within a couple of days of their request in a feeble attempt to claim he was lying about any sensible person rejecting the violent, sexual advances of union thugs towards the taxpayers.  If I may paraphrase Joe Biden’s rapist view of policy differences.

Turns out, Walker was right:

Gov. Scott Walker was right: The angry crowds in Madison didn’t tell the whole story of how Wisconsinites felt.

In the week after Walker announced his plan to dramatically curtail public employees’ collective bargaining rights in the state budget repair bill, a wide majority of the emails to him expressed support, an analysis of those emails indicates.

Now let’s be sure to define Walker’s truth down so as to provide some measure of cover for their Brothers In Harms.

But that support was significantly boosted by emails from pro-Walker senders from outside Wisconsin.

It goes on much later to show an e-mail-by-e-mail vetting revealing such a wide margin (almost 2:1) within the state of Wisconsin as to dispatch any Leftist media assertion to the contrary.

And, oh, one more thing.  Who took the tally of the “protesters” to see how many had been bussed in to support the Unionists?  Seems they weren’t the voice of Wisconsin after all.  Make that your headline.

Sue the unions to get the tally.  Best believe they know every astroturfed ringer Cheesehead that got loaded onto the purple bus.  The purple bus with professional squeaky wheels.

RELATED: It’s still my opinion that at least latently the purpose of the Commie-Media’s lawsuit was to get the names of the Anti-Union supporters to pass off to Unions for harassment purposes.

If just one name of the private correspondence sent to Walker is released then we know that the first motive of the lawsuit was to manufacture a pseudoscandal about Walker lying over support.  The second is so more Union Police Officers can send threatening boycott letters to area businessmen to imply they won’t respond to their emergency calls.

Orwell Nods: When Is War Not “War”?

Why, when you justify bypassing Congress to authorize the use of force under the War Powers Act, silly.

Just don’t call it a war and it’s not a war.

/Because of Teh Optics! ™

And speaking of Teh Optics, Preznint My Pet Goat can dispatch those rumors about not being able to walk and chew gum at the same time.  He can start Not-A-War and play with kids’ balls at the same time.

I assure you – we are in the very best of hands, er, feet.

And watch out kids, remember – Obama’s a pedal-phile after all.


Mission Lurch: Smart Diplomacy Launches Peace Missiles In Not War

Senator Kerry (D - North Vietnam): Qool With Qaddafi

Further to my earlier comments about John Kerry’s (the Chair of the Foreign Relations Committee) appearance on Meet the Press this morning – run this up the flagpole and see who salutes it:

Leading Senate Democrats on Sunday defended President Barack Obama’s approach to Libya and made clear that U.S. military action would be strictly limited to protecting civilians and not target Libyan strongman Moammar Gaddafi.

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman John Kerry (D-Mass.), appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” from Cairo, described the activities of U.S. military forces in Libya as a “humanitarian initiative” that was wholly unconcerned with removing Gaddafi from power.

So we’re just going bomb him, presumably with Tomahawk missiles, and then leave him there in hopes that he will have learned his lesson.

Senate Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin said the Obama administration’s cautious and deliberate strategy for Libya has the support of the military brass and would be well-received on Capitol Hill.

He said “it would be well-received on Capitol Hill” because there has been no consultation whatsoever with either Senate or House Democrats and Republicans.  Who needs Congressional buy-in when The World Community has given us our marching orders?

“One of the reasons I predict there will be strong bipartisan support in the Congress for the president’s decision is because it is a limited mission — no boots on the ground — and because he has done this with great caution, with great care, and I saw that in person in the White House on Friday,” said the Michigan Democrat, who appeared with Kerry on “Meet the Press.” “One of the things I know our military were very concerned about was that there could be mission creep. They don’t have that concern anymore because this mission has been very carefully limited.”

“The goal of this mission is not to get rid of Gaddafi,” Kerry added. “That’s not what the United Nations licensed, and I would not call it going to war. This is a very limited operation that is geared to save lives. … It is not geared to try to get rid of Gaddafi, he has not been targeted.”

How did Bush win a 2nd term?  Because John Kerry is a duplicitous traitor who lives to have American Power yanked by the UN’s leash.  They tell us who to kill.  They tell us when to kill.  They tell us how to kill and then they tell us when to stop after we’ve lost.

As Kerry plainly implies, we will fight a politically correct Not War that is morally justified – unlike Iraq and Afghanistan – and that we are not going after Qaddafi.  Does that concern anyone?

Both Kerry and Levin dismissed those concerns.

“We’re not policing Libya,” Kerry said. “We are engaged in a humanitarian initiative to prevent the slaughter of innocent people, to prevent a dictator from dragging people out of hospital beds and they disappear.”

“What you’re missing here,” Levin added, “is this is the world that has made a decision. … It is not just we the United States. The president has taken the time to put the world community together.”

If The World ™ “made a decision” then why isn’t The World ™ enforcing it?

As long as we understand that Barack Obama has been “taking the time to put the world community together” as Levin states to attack Libya and not consulted our own Congress at all or sought the support of the American people.  It’s his war and his alone.

Again I’ll ask:  Where is the press corps to ask about this flip-flop on US interventionism and The Cautious, One Week Long Rush To Not War?

Or, Obama says Qaddafi must go.  His Secretary of State says Qaddafi must go.  His main Senate benefactor and head of Foreign Relations says Qaddafi can stay.  The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says Qaddafi can stay.  Where’s the disconnect?

It’s Amateur Night, folks.  Channeling my inner Jim Stockdale, “What the hell are we doing here?”

About That Whole “Arab League” Asked Us To Invade Libya Fallacy

Much like fixing the intelligence of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, turns out the Arab League didn’t exactly give Dumb-0 carte blanche to attack Libya:

Western forces pounded Libya’s air defences and patrolled its skies on Sunday, but their day-old intervention hit a serious diplomatic setback as the Arab League chief condemned the “bombardment of civilians.”

But Arab League chief Amr Moussa said what was happening was not what Arabs had envisaged when they called for the imposition of a no-fly zone over Libya.

“What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone, and what we want is the protection of civilians and not the bombardment of more civilians,” he said.

He said, “I want you to paint me a picture of Libya based on my specific directions for what I hope will happen and I will criticize and second-guess your every brushstroke but never, ever, ever pick up the brush to paint the picture myself.”

Your “broad coalition” just fell apart and has turned into an invasion by Western white people of another Muslim country for their oil interests.  And surprise, the US gets to be the knuckledragging henchman to do the heavy lifting and pick up the tab for French business interests.

The more you hear backstabbing heathens Arab leaders, the more you can appreciate the integrity of a shifting sand dune.

The New Chickenhawks And A Coalition of Broads

I do believe that your local recruiter’s station is still open if you want to support your President’s undeclared war on Libya.

I also hope that chiropractors are covered under the new Obamacare law given the twists and contortions of the antiwar Left, who never took advantage of a moment to STFU during Bush’s year long Rush To War ™ in Iraq, versus Obama “The Poet Warrior’s” week long, “cautious” unconstitutional intervention in a civil war that’s technically not our business at all.

What Fantasyland is this that we’re living in?

I just saw John Kerry and Carl Levin on Meet the Press saying that we’re doing all this, took our time to do it right with our Broad Coalition ™ or rather a Coalition of Broads and that at the end of the day we’re pretty cool with expending a lot of blood and treasure to leave Qaddafi in power.   This, for some reason, only makes sense if you’re a Liberal Democrat so may be our house commies can riddle me that one.

Funny that among all those consulted, Congress wasn’t. Congressman John Larson of Connecticut, head of the Democratic Caucus, says, “They consulted the Arab League. They consulted the United Nations. They did not consult the United States Congress,” one Democrat lawmaker said of the White House. “They’re creating wreckage, and they can’t obviate that by saying there are no boots on the ground. … There aren’t boots on the ground; there are Tomahawks in the air.”

Also, that in two closed to questions speeches that Obama has made the case for intervention so painfully clear that only an unAmerican dupe would deny him seeking justice for Libyan rebels of undetermined democratic commitment.  Even if you did support them it’s too little too late and if you leave Qaddafi in power without an occupation would you expect that he would not hunt them down afterwards?

This is beyond senseless and no high-minded journalists seem able to latch onto this headsnapping reversal of course from the people who opposed Iraq and Afghanistan for a decade.

Obama just asked US soldiers to risk their lives for nothing, in pursuit of a goal that is undefined if not ill-defined that puts their mission under the leadership and mandate of the worthless United Nations.

The same United Nations that is authorizing us to attack the chairman of their own Human Rights Council with such a narrowly defined scope as to be more of a threat to our own soldiers than to Libya’s.

God, I know I ask for too much as it is being that you have no real obligation to help me at all but please save our people from these professional morons and two-faced traitors.

In lieu of divine intervention, I will gladly accept, Code Pink, International ANSWER and Women in Black anti-war rallies against this imperial President with added calls for his immediate impeachment.

Hilarity: Tubby Riefenstahl rips into Obama as if he was packaged in a Hostess Twinkie wrapper. Sacrelicious.

I guess he won’t be taking credit for all of the voters he steered towards Obama now, huh?  Success has a thousand Dreams of My Father but failure is a Kenyan orphan apparently.

Obama’s War: Day 1 – Operation Hope & Same

How’s that change workin’ out for you?

Nice Nobel Prize You Got There. It would be a shame if something happened to it.

Evidently, liberals are having so much fun in Iraq and Afghanistan that two wars aren’t enough.   No congressional vote, no weapons of mass destruction, no nuclear weapons to speak of, no imminent attack on the U.S. or an ally.

Screw it.  Let’s have another war!

Brazil better be prepared too lest our media fire an Intercontinental Bigot-namecalling Missile in their direction for holding violently racist tea party rallies against our black president.   A nation of rotten, filthy racists I say.  Koch Bros. funded, Iranian-coddling Trannyphiles the lot of them.

“Operation:  Odyssey Dawn” sounds like the start of a bad day.  A long, bad day.  A quixotic journey that’s, let me be clear, only just begun.

How about Operation:  Infinite Flip-Flop?

Operation:  Eternal Hypocrite

Operation:  Reluctant Cowboy

Operation:  Shotgun Wedding

Operation:  Guilted Into It

Operation:  Tardy To The Party

Operation:  Working Vacation

Operation:  That guy I was shaking hands with two years ago is the new Hitler.

Welcome to the club, Dumb-0.  The bloodthirsty, Crusading imperialist neo–con club.

I’d say Obama was practically Jewish if I wasn’ t so sure he would slit his wrists and we need him to keep Amtrak Biden from chugging into the President Station.

Speaking of slitting wrists, if I were a leftist who voted for this featherweight junior war criminal I’d have the warm bath drawn and a bottle of sleeping pills on standby before March Madness is over.

You voted to kill innocent people over oil.  Er, well not oil. Over something maybe.  Oh well, may not over something.

More like over nothing.

You elected Obama to kill innocent people and whose excuse for doing so is in no way different than what Bush was criticized over for eight years.

I understand after all.  It’s not like I’ve never seen a hypocrite before.

But no, of course this isn’t what you voted for.  You voted for peace and sunshine and government-regulated sugarfree lollipops.  You weren’t given a real choice for peace.  Obama just lied to you for his entire career about how much his inspiring words could make the oceans recede and the clouds part and the horse shit.

Either that, or the world’s a more complicated place than the highchair banging pantpissers on the Left can nuance into their drug-addled shitferbrains.

Meaty Dog Food News Bites

We’ll all be eating dog food soon, so might as well get used to it. This is why the corruptocrats who run our country exclude food and gas when they calculate the rate of inflation. They know that most Americans are too busy with their finger in their own pie watching Glee to be bothered with discerning the difference.

The catastrophe in Japan continues. You may have noticed a lack of urgent coverage here, and that’s for several reasons. First, unlike so many other really important bloggers, we don’t claim to be a news site. A more important reason is that, besides the fact that thousands of people have died and entire towns have been reduced to rubble, the details of the nuclear crisis are truly unknown. We can speculate all day long, but there are too many conflicting reports to jump/not jump off a bridge. What we can do is donate to relief efforts and pray for the victims, if you’re so inclined.

Needless to say, with a world economy already teetering on the brink, this was the last thing Japan, or anybody else, needed.

Gas prices continue to skyrocket. Even chubby-chasing President Clifford says that he is in support of some new drilling. He also wants us to start drilling for our own oil. (rim shot)

The country-club Republicans in congress continue to demonstrate their spinelessness as the Donks have made them their bitches on “spending cuts” yet again. There is no urgency from either party on spending cuts, which is yet another reason why we are doomed to an economic catastrophe.

As Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., said before Tuesday’s House vote on the latest continuing resolution, “It’s time to take a stand for taxpayers and future generations. Things don’t change in Washington, D.C., until they have to. It will not be possible to put our fiscal house in order without a fight. By giving liberals in the Senate another three weeks of negotiations, we will only delay a confrontation that must come. I say, ‘Let it come now. It’s time to take a stand.’ … House Republicans need to tell liberals in the Senate, ‘This far and no further.’ Nobody wants a government shutdown, but unless we take a stand, we will shut down the future for our children and grandchildren.”

There are a small minority of Republicans in the House and Senate who get it, but their GOP brothers and sisters are too gutless to do what needs to be done. We need more a lot more Governor Walkers and a lot fewer Senator Alexanders.

In other, far less important news, the upcoming NFL season is in doubt. Apparently being paid millions to play a game is equal to slavery in this day and age. I love pro football, but I’d be fine with letting these overpaid asses sit at home for a year while we watch some XFL-style scabs beat each other up on the RedZone.

Gotta go. Lunch is ready.

BREAKING! COOTUS is fi’n to fill out his brackets! My money is on the top seed.

MORE(ON) GOP COWARDS: 54 House Republicans are ready for prime time. The rest? Sucking eggs all day.

Encouraged by conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation and the Club for Growth to oppose the bill, the GOP defectors complained that the three week extension did not withhold funding for the health care law, Planned Parenthood and other programs.

“I am convinced that a vote for the CR is a vote to not fight against ObamaCare,” Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann said in a statement encouraging other members to join her in opposition. “The time has come to take a stand.”

After the vote, Florida Rep. Allen West — a Tea Party-backed freshman member who voted against the measure — said he couldn’t support the bill in good faith.

“People have to be able to sleep with themselves. I know that I can look myself in the mirror and explain my vote very well to my constituents back in South Florida,” West said. “We have got to start making some of the hard choices and decisions. That’s adult leadership.”

Bein’ Preznint Iz Hard, Yo

Our community-organizer-in-chief is really having a hard time these days.

First, Egypt erupts and he can’t decide between his muzleeem brothers and the tin-pot dictator we’ve been propping up for decades. Tough call.

Next, Libya catches fire and COOTUS decides to just hide under his desk and let France take the lead. Now, that is leadership.

In my desperation for some sliver of national leadership, I was hoping that Hitlery might have grown a pair – it certainly looks like it standing next to her impotent boss. No dice.

Now we see where COOTUS is openly wishing he was “President of China” because it would be so much easier.

“Mr. Obama has told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China. As one official put it, ‘No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.’”

“Obama Seeks a Course of Pragmatism in the Middle East,” The New York Times, March 11, 2011.

Mr. Obama is right.

If you’re president of China, people around the world who are fighting for freedom don’t really expect you to help. If you’re president of China, you don’t have to put up with annoying off-year congressional elections, and then negotiate your budget with a bunch of gun-and-religion-clinging congressmen and senators. If you’re president of China, you can fund your national public radio to your heart’s content. And if you’re president of China, when you host a conference on bullying in schools, people take you seriously.

Unfortunately for him and us, Barack Obama is president of the United States.

Unfortunately for the entire planet. This is what you get when you elect an idiot who has no visible record of any accomplishment. When you elect a dimwitted street thug who has no experience, can’t string a sentence together and thinks that your country has 57 states, you get what you pay for. Worse, we all pay that bill.

What is surprising is that he can’t even conceal his Marxist tendencies and lets comments like “president of China” slip. You would think that even the dimmest bulb would know better than that. Then again, we (as a nation) apparently aren’t paying attention. If we were, he wouldn’t be there.

Until your orchestrated collapse comes, COOTUS, you will have to deal with your detractors, so get used to it.

Peace Out, Union Bitches

Bedwetting leftists have a funny way of demonstrating the “new tone”.

Oh wait, I forget. When the Dim-O-Cracks say “new tone”, that should be translated as conservatives bringing their own lube and bending over more politely so the Dims don’t have to put forth so much effort when fiscally raping the country. There’s just nothing sadder than a socialist not getting his/her way.

Mayhem engulfed the state capitol following the vote. Thousands of protesters streamed into the four wings of the historic white-granite building, screaming at the GOP lawmakers, who were quickly escorted out by police. College students from the University of Wisconsin’s Madison campus mingled with union leaders, teachers raised fists with progressive organizers. Cries of “Shame!” echoed throughout the marble halls.

Senate Republicans were harried by swarming crowds. “We tried to get out of the building after the vote, because they were rushing the chamber, and we were escorted by security through a tunnel system to another building. But, after being tipped off by a Democrat, they mobbed the exit at that building, and were literally trying to break the windows of the cars we were in as we were driving away,” Republican senator Randy Hopper tells NRO. Such tactics, he sighs, were hardly unexpected. “I got a phone call yesterday saying that we should be executed. I’ve had messages saying that they want to beat me with a billy club.”

Of course, that’s never where it stops with the community-organizer-in-chief’s little thugs and thugettes. They have now gotten together (more than likely with Bracky’s co-biographer, Bill Ayers) and have penned a group death threat against the GOP Senators who dared to find a way to uphold the rule of law in Wisconsin. The criminally insane authors of this screed should be locked up and given life in prison.

Subject: Atten: Death threat!!!! Bomb!!!!

Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes
will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain
to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it
will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit
that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for
more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.

WE want to make this perfectly clear. Because of your actions today and in
the past couple of weeks I and the group of people that are working with me
have decided that we’ve had enough. We feel that you and the people that
support the dictator have to die. We have tried many other ways of dealing
with your corruption but you have taken things too far and we will not stand
for it any longer. So, this is how it’s going to happen: I as well as many
others know where you and your family live, it’s a matter of public records.
We have all planned to assult you by arriving at your house and putting a
nice little bullet in your head. However, we decided that we wouldn’t leave
it there. We also have decided that this may not be enough to send the
message to you since you are so “high” on Koch and have decided that you are
now going to single handedly make this a dictatorship instead of a
demorcratic process. So we have also built several bombs that we have placed
in various locations around the areas in which we know that you frequent.
This includes, your house, your car, the state capitol, and well I won’t
tell you all of them because that’s just no fun. Since we know that you are
not smart enough to figure out why this is happening to you we have decided
to make it perfectly clear to you. If you and your goonies feel that it’s
necessary to strip the rights of 300,000 people and ruin their lives, making
them unable to feed, clothe, and provide the necessities to their families
and themselves then We Will “get rid of” (in which I mean kill) you. Please
understand that this does not include the heroic Rep. Senator that risked
everything to go aganist what you and your goonies wanted him to do. We feel
that it’s worth our lives to do this, because we would be saving the lives
of 300,000 people. Please make your peace with God as soon as possible and
say goodbye to your loved ones we will not wait any longer. YOU WILL DIE!!!!

I really don’t care if this is some kind of joke from some nameless, illiterate product of the Wisconsin public schools, it should be treated with great seriousness. It certainly would be if these threats were made against a bunch of Dims.

It is, however, very entertaining to watch the union rent-a-thugs and useful idiots weep and gnash their teeth as they lose their power to continue bleeding the state’s taxpayers. We just have to hope this spreads to all 57 states sooner rather than later.

Cassandra Was Right, You Know?

Impromptu Weekend Wrap-Up:

Rob Taylor at NewsRealBlog has a good piece up on the 10 biggest financial feces already flung mid-air towards the fan blades that are somehow getting no play in  state-run media.  I’m tempted to cash out my 401k, buy shotgun shells and all the frozen vegetables at Wal-Mart now.

The Happy Warrior himself Mark Steyn is back with his inimitable style focused like an Obamanian laser on the failures of multiculturalism, liberal military adventurism and media malpractice on display after the assassination of two US soldiers at the Frankfurt airport this last week.

Ann Coulter’s working OT in a right-to-work state.  To the union dock monkeys, she’s not from the government and she’s not here to help you.  Which is why I like her.

Rape My Wife, Please

In The Tank: Dukakis does his best Associated Press impersonation.

Poor Michael Dukakis.  Still trying to re-fight the electoral ass-kicking that muddied GHW Bush’s shiny wingtip.

Thanks to Salon’s War Room (see “The New Civility” – war – arghh!), it appears that Shortstack McRapeMyWife’s plan to launch the Dukakis/Mondale 2016 juggernaut continues apace. 23 years later and not one iota the wiser.

The Lee Atwater Boogie Man still lurks under his petite daybed.  He didn’t lose because he was cold to the question of how he would respond if his wife and daughter were raped.  He didn’t lose because he coddled rapists and murderers by sending them on weekend vacations.  No, it was those mean ole meanies who don’t fight fair.

Come for the asking Walter Mondale for good advice, stay for the comments where Obama is congratulated for being our first black Republican president who took a hard “right” once elected.  Cuckoo stuff.

Willie Horton is still available for comment.
