"My brain...that's my second favorite organ!" Woody Allan - you know, the guy who's screwing his adopted daughter - says, " It would be a disgrace and a humiliation if Barack Obama does not win ." Which means that Woody's emotional life won't change much when John McCain wins a landslide victory on November 4th. Can you hear the Clown Bell ringing?
It goes without saying that Joe Biden is a Clown of epic proportions. As has been mentioned previously in this blog he is the Dwight Schrute of the Senate with an absolute gift for making a fool of himself, which to no ones surprise he did again today by saying “it's time [for the well-off] to be patriotic"by paying higher taxes. But the clown of the day is Joe Klein who puts forward these words of wisdom on the Time Magazine blog called Swampland. And Biden's right: in a system of progressive taxation, it is the patriotic duty of the wealthy to pay more than the middle class or the poor...and furthermore, since we're all going to be paying for the mess the Wall Street sharks made, I'd go Biden a step further: there probably should be a confiscatory shark tax for any and all executives whose companies have gone belly up and required a federal bailout. This is the heart of the sickness that bleeds this country and causes such conflict between Red and Blue
It's funny what you can find by just clickin' links on the Web. I was brought to the Huffalump Post today and this brilliant analysis by one Michael Seitzman (full fledged Clown). "I realized three things tonight. For one, if you are a McCain/Palin/Bush voter, you and I do not have a difference of opinion. We have a difference in brain power. Two, she really is as ignorant as I feared. And, three, she really is kinda hot. Basically, I want to have sex with her on my Barack Obama sheets while my wife reads aloud from the Constitution. (My wife is cool with this if I promise to "first wipe off Palin's tranny makeup." I married well.)" I doubt that Michael did "marry well" as he claims - but this might be due to differences in brain power which he, inexplicably, just realized last night while watching an evening news interview of Sarah Palin. He realized at the same time that Palin is "ignorant" - at least she's as ignorant as h
It took almost 50 years, but Ike finally gave " the beard " a beating he so richly deserves . I feel sorry for the innocents in Cuba, but for all the rest, that's what you get for putting up with a petty despot as the leader of your country. You suck Fidel. May you die soon so that the Cuban people can finally taste freedom.
For the past year and a half I've had to listen (and sometimes argue) with supporters of Barack Obama who tell me how great it's going to be when "The One" takes the reigns of power and rights the sinking ship of America. Never mind that the guy had no legitimate experience to become President of the US, that he was an obvious opportunist who played upon peoples guilt and fantasy that mixed race "African American" could heal the deep philosophical breach between Red/Blue America, that his associations with people like Jeramah Wright and Tony Rezko (not to mention Weathermen terrorists Willliam Ayres and Bernadine Dohrn ) were not important and that the hatred of the Clintons that he leveraged and exploited to win the nomination for President of the Democrat party would not come back to bite him in the ass. Now the bloom is off the rose and the new flower on the political scene has stolen the spotlight - her name is Sarah Palin and her ascension t
I'm sort of a political junkie so I really enjoy watching the Conventions of both major political parties (I even tune in to C-SPAN to catch the Libertarian and other minor party conventions) but I'm finding this Democrat Convention in Denver hard to watch. Not simply because I disagree with their platform and rhetoric, or the staging and to be honest, just as in years past, I find myself very entertained just viewing the odd-balls who make up the sea of Democrat delegates - much funnier looking people on average than the Republicans. No, the problem is that there is a strange energy emanating from Denver, a boredom and flatness which is palpable to anyone watching or listening at home. And it's the same old crap, with the same old speakers - a point that is perfectly articulated in this New York Sun editorial - that is throwing a wet blanket over the entire proceeding. The Republicans have a very low bar to get over next week in order to appear the more coherent, energet
Universal Health care is touted as the next thing Democrats want to inflict on the USA - who knows what it will look like when they get finished crafting all the bills or amendments to the constitution or whatever it's going to take to get it done. Looking at the Democrats tonight at their convention and listening to Teddy Kennedy talk about his life long dream of a government controlled health care bureaucracy I thought to myself - "How can Ted be for this crazy plan while suffering with a (probably terminal) brain tumor?" His vow to stay alive until January to see Barack sworn in as President and watch his dream of Socialized medicine become a reality was like telling the audience "I'm going to reap the benefits of the greatest health care system on earth that I might stay alive long enough to destroy that same system next January" (cue cheers and tears) "thank you my gullible comrades and may the government bestow its manifold blessings upon you now
Up until tonight I thought the most painful hour of television ever produced was an hour long 20/20 episode where Geraldo Rivera interviewed Barbara Streisand about making her film Yentl. But tonight I have been listening to Larry King interview Bill Maher on the subject of religion. It is impossible to convey just how stupid these two people are, but here's a sample: KING: Is there evil? MAHER: Is there evil? And what should we do about it? So Obama gives a very nuanced answer, and again this is why I do like this guy. He sort of can't win for -- lose with the winning. I mean, he's damned if he does and he's damned if he doesn't. He gives a nuanced answer, which I like, and he loses the crowd. He said, "Yes, we should be aware of evil, but we should be humble about evil." And what he was trying to say, I think, was you know what? It's easy to sit back in America and go, "Well, we're the good people. That's common knowledg
From Wikipedia - " Dwight Schrute is a salesman at the Scranton branch of the paper-goods distribution company Dunder Mifflin. Dwight formally held the title of "Assistant to the Regional Manager" but constantly refers to himself as "Assistant Regional Manager," attempting to elevate himself to second-in-command to Michael Scott. Dwight craves authority over others and relishes any minor task that Michael or anyone else gives him. Though Dwight acts like a know-it-all, he is actually quite gullible and naïve. For this reason, he is easily tricked and tormented by his desk-mate and fellow salesman Jim Halpert. Dwight speaks in a halting, dramatic manner, even in casual conversations." Make a few changes and you get - Joe Biden is a Senator born in Scranton, PA but now representing the tiny state of Delaware. Joe formally held the title of Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee but constantly refers to himself as "Future Vice Preside
Mike Vaccaro is a clown for mocking the Modern Pentathlon as a silly sport. The fact is that the Modern Pentathalon is one of the greatest competitions of the Olympics. Forget synchronized swimming and the floor routines in gymnastics - the Modern Pentathlon is the real deal. Vaccaro's observation is that no one watches the Modern Pentathlon - but they do watch gymnastics and softball so those are the sports we should devote our attentions to and forget sublime sports like the Modern Pentathlon. How pathetic and sad - he probably watched all of the interminable Beach Volleyball that NBC subjected its viewing audience to over the past week. Created by Baron Pierre de Coubertin as the ultimate test of well rounded athleticism it is certainly one of my favorite Olympic sports. The people who run the Olympic games should exalt in the wonders of this complex competition. They should also reduce the number of events in the Olympics and force all competitors to perform all their event
I have been dismayed to see the rise of B H Obama in the US national politics this past year, but I always figured that he was winning because so many Democrats simply wanted anyone but Hillary Clampett as their parties nominee for President. But reading the IBD report on Barack's Dad has me gasping for air and shaking my head once again at the stupidity of the Democratic party. How the hell do you nominate the son of an unrepentant Marxist to be your parties nominee for President of the United States of America? I just don't understand what these people are thinking. It would be forgivable if the year were 1908 and none of this Marxist/Socialist nonsense had been implemented and tested on its hapless victims - but this is 2008 and we've had almost 100 years of experimenting with Marxist theory in real life governments and societies. The result is always the same - When fully implemented the destruction of civil society and emergence of a terror state or when partially i
Tonight on Keith Olbermann's hour long rant he had the audacity to tell John McCain to "grow up" because the McCain campaign had sent a letter to NBC "news" complaining about the obvious Probama slant to the networks coverage of the 2008 Presidential race. To hear someone as juvenile as Olbermann demand that a man with the life experience and responsibility of John McCain "grow up" makes me want to vomit. Anyone who looks at the resume and life experience of a Keith Olbermann will quickly surmise that he's a nerd who figured out he could scold all the cool guys in class by getting behind a microphone - and there he has stayed all these many years. May he broadcast forever - oblivious to his foolishness and pitiful nature.
I have no sympathy for her ... none. She is without a doubt one of the worst politicians (campaigners) I've ever seen and would be NOWHERE if it were not for the devilish talents of her flim-flam man "husband", who - all other things aside - it must be said, knows how to work a crowd. The fact that she's getting her ass handed to her by a mulatto born in Hawaii, but now living in and representing her home state of Illinois is priceless. You see, Hilary is not from Arkansas or Washington DC and she's certainly not from New York - She's from the suburbs of Chicago and I hope after her Presidential bid collapses and she's left having to take orders from John McCain for the next 4 years that she will decide to finally throw in the towel and move back there. It's not just that BO is a better campaigner (he is, and not just a little better either - he's so much better at it than she is that it's laughable) it's that she is left floundering b
