Don’t Lose Your Head.
According to The Daily Beast, according to Paul Begala, according to Republicans, President Obama is detached.
Detached, you say. About what?
Oh, you mean all those other things like drone killings, continuing war, spying on reporters, praising austerity, pursuing destructive trade agreements, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.– stuff like that.
It all depends on what he knew and when he knew it. No biggie there.
At least not for Democrats who profit mightily from many of his ill-begotten policies.
Paul Begala has a different take on Obama. Read the article. It’s funny.
Have you heard? Anthony Weiner is running for mayor of New York. No, not from, for.
So what else is left? There are already two Democratic senators from New York. No where to go there. And he screwed up his full frontal position in the House of Representatives. So what’s left? Mayor of New York, what else?
If he wins, will everyone refer to him as hizzoner?
And should he lose, no big deal – just another boner career move by Weiner.
Fortunately, there’s a movie career waiting in the wings. No question about his talents there. If you get my drift.
Still like the way the guy thinks though. He should have stuck it out and stayed in the House. Unfortunately, chicken shit Democrats threw him under the bus.
Do I hear $1.9 Mil!
Here’s another piece of worthless news from the “have you heard” category.
Have you heard? Jimmy Kimmel paid $1.9 million dollars for Bea Arthur’s breasts. No, not the real ones. A painting of them.
Now I don’t have that kind of scratch, but if I did, I think I could find something better to do with it than buy a couple of boobs on a canvas. Hey, I’m a leg man.
If you are viewing this image in North Carolina, duct taping of nipples is required. (courtesy of Christie’s).
On the other hand, there’s something mysterious about that smile.
Robert Reich, a Democrat, and a real Democrat at that, is complaining about Democrats in Congress. Again.
Picky, picky, picky.
Let’s not complain about Democrats in Congress. By keeping them confined in close quarters, we can keep an eye on them and minimize the damage they are doing to the country. Or at least slow it down a bit.
When they finally escape to Wall Street, they’ll lie, cheat and steal like the rest of that bunch and no one will know what they’re up to.
And then there’s that old bogeyman, a financial transaction tax on Wall Street trades. Every time tycoons hear that phrase they get palpitations, so quit it Robert.
Obama support a financial transaction tax on Wall Street trades??? Not if he ever wants to become CEO of Citigroup. Let’s face it. That’s where the real power is.
Citigroup, London. Nice digs.
One If By Land, Two If By Sea.
Ann Coulter likes white people and wants more of them to immigrate to this country. White immigration would, of course, help to retain the traditional racial ratio of mostly Caucasian folks.
It seems her appeal is somewhat more revealing of her true nature. She referred specifically to British immigration thereby excluding, subconsciously at least, Italians, Germans, Poles, Russians, Lithuanians, Ukrainians and a veritable host of other nationalities. Maybe she doesn’t consider them white.
But I have a better idea. Why not just invade and conquer Canada? That tundra bedeviled country has a predominately white population of nearly 35 million people. And war is a lot quicker way of bringing white folks into the country than waiting for a bunch of staid, tweedy British to wave goodbye to her queenship.
There are however two drawbacks to conquering Canada. First, Quebec Province is French. Not sure how Ann would feel about incorporating another bunch of foreign language speaking people into the good ole US of A.
Second, Canada has universal health insurance. Any war would surely be opposed by Blue Cross.
On the other hand, there’s a lot of tar sands oil in that tundra. Enough to make an Exxon CEO drool. So you could put the oil industry in the war column.
And war is to die for as far as Ann is concerned. Makes for a lot of good news stories, don’t cha know.
Brain Dead Republican.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) berated a woman who had an abortion under the most tragic of circumstances. Doctors had told her that the fetus she was carrying did not have a functioning brain. She then decided to end the pregnancy.
Without a hint of compassion or sympathy for the woman’s plight, Gohmert suggested the woman should have carried the brain dead fetus to term just in case the doctors were wrong.
The abortion occurred at 21 weeks and Gohmert, along with other Republicans, is supporting legislation that would ban abortions after 20 weeks regardless of circumstances, including rape and incest.
Another Republican Georgia state Rep. Terry England, once compared women to animals in similar situations saying he had often delivered dead calves and pigs but under know circumstances would he ever allow one of his animals to undergo an abortion.
Given the statements of these two creeps, it appears that at least some brain dead fetuses do make it to term and go on to serve in Congress.
Sarah Palin got confused. She said she could see Australia from her front porch.
She later apologized for her mistake and said she meant “Africa.”
Later she said she always did get her cities mixed up.
Now, now. Let’s cut the little lady some slack. She just wants to be president. It’s not like she’ll ever teach a class in geography, ya know.
Actually, I fudged a little bit about Sarah being confused. It wasn’t about geography. After all she is a winner of the Schmuckup Prize in that subject.
But she is confused (anyone surprised). In a tweet to which she claimed authorship, she wrote that the FBI is spying on AP journalists.
Of course, it’s not the FBI that’s spying on journalists. At least not this time around. It’s the Obama administration that’s committing the dirty deed in a misguided effort to plumb leaks – of the security variety. The FBI is merely examining tax exempt applications of right wing groups trying to skip out on their taxes.
You mean Australia isn’t the capital of Texas? Rats. Don’t tell me. I know it begins with an “A”.
