Schadenfreude

Put a Drop-down Box Right THERE and…

CMR M at Ace quips (so truly)

Man, you could cross out Egypt and put in a whole range of words and this picture would still work.

Then the code monkey side of my brain fired right up and said – You could put a drop-down box right there and insert an infinite list of Obamaflubs.

Let’s start a list!

When The Best Entertainment of the Day is Amazon Reviews

Just read them

You can thank me later.

David Frum’s Final Beclownment

It’s bad enough he beclowns himself daily, but his article about the passing of Andrew Breitbart is truly disgusting.

Ace gives him the what for he deserves for speaking so ill of the dead. And it leaves a mark. A delicious whelp.

From the dawn of time the primitives in the woods envied and feared those with the Magic of Fire.

David Frum exceeded Andrew Breitbart in one measure only, span of life.

But not in life.

David Frum will die as he lived, gray, timid, small, spiteful, cramped in thought and bent in spirit, slender of talent and obese in self-regard, unloved, unnoticed, unremembered and unread.

Better to live outrageously for only a short spell than to hiss from the shadows, content to live within the niggling license of Master’s Leash.

Read the whole thing. It is stellar.

Stacy prays, despite all his antics, that he never screws up as bad as this.

Ray Stevens and The President

Double-Shot Burn-Out

The day job continues to be a simmering lava pit filled with alligators, sharks and jumping spiders. Who would have thought that a relatively straightforward application could bumfuzzle so many supposedly smart people at such a globally-acclaimed and supposedly super-smart institute of higher learning? Surely I’m surrounded by cylons.

Some random things that managed to spark through the sulfuric fog the past week:

- I have a new second favorite MLB team. The Texas Rangers drafted UGA Diamond Dawg, Johnathan Taylor. Back in March, Taylor was injured in a head-to-head collision with teammate Zach Cone. JT had been scouted for years by the Rangers, and they recognized his efforts with a draft pick. The Dawgs had a great run this season, going all the way to the final game of the NCAA Regionals. What a classy move by the Rangers organization.
- Kyle Wingfield/AJC is looking past the usual campaign fuss and bother and seeing some interesting things about Tim Pawlenty.
- General Geekiness: Yesterday was IPv6 Day.
- Pinin’ for the fjords.
- The RedState Gathering is open for registration. Be there, be square.
- 9+ minutes of Teh Awesome. Grand Rapids isn’t dead yet, they are feeling better. Thank you very much.
- NCAA punk/crook/liar/cheat meets the same at The White House.

Many have asked why I haven’t chimed in on #Weinergate, since I’m such a manners maven. Honestly, if I wanted a dose middle-school boy humor, all I have to do is go home. Go read The Anchoress’ take on this whole debacle. She echos my sentiments. And now we find out his wife is pregnant. What a wonderful black cloud to hang over the announcement of new life. Mortifying, isn’t it?

Dave Barry’s Year in Review

Due to my excitement of finally saying goodbye to the most horrible year in recent memory, this jewel almost slipped by this weekend. Thanks to Elizabeth for the reminder!

This is not to say that 2010 was all bad. There were bright spots. Three, to be exact:

1. The Yankees did not even get into the World Series.

2. There were several days during which Lindsay Lohan was neither going into, nor getting out of, rehab.

3. Apple released the hugely anticipated iPad, giving iPhone people, at long last, something to fondle with their other hand.

Other than that, 2010 was a disaster. To make absolutely sure that we do not repeat it, let’s remind ourselves just how bad it was. Let’s put this year into a full-body scanner and check out its junk, starting with…

Go read the whole thing.

Teh Awesome

Check out the A Lego a Day blog.

Nothin’ but awesome.

Lance will like this one.

Here’s College Boy and Sweet Girlfriend, sans the mangled ride.

Something Congress needs.

The weekend beckons. And thanks to numerous incidents of unplanned familial excitement, I am so far behind, I will never die.

Tartan Distraction

From the same Anchoress post where I nicked today’s Quote o’ the Day, was a seed of a thought that developed into a full-blown pining for the fjords moment.

While the Pope is visiting the UK, he is being presented with his very own tartan. “St. Ninian.” It’s beautiful. A little like Buchanan Hunting, but with more blue and it certainly wouldn’t clash so badly with my hair. (Hint, hint) Which then, of course, lead me here and then to this, and before you know it, I’m off to the races.

Everybody loves a man who wears a skirt.

If you’re in Atlanta, the Stone Mountain Highland Games are October 15-17.

As for me, I think I’ll watch Brigadoon when I get home.

Aye, sunshine can peep through a wee hole.

Today’s Hot New Product

The Obama Bumper Sticker Remover Kit (via Newsbusters and American Power). My entire neighborhood needs one.

It even works on a Prius.

Ree and Scarlett, Take 245

Ree had a party of school chums out at the ranch this weekend. One thing they did was reenact a scene from Gone with the Wind, complete with ringlet hairpieces and fake mustaches. Check out her post (that’s ok, I’ll wait).

Now here is the real scene (sorry, it won’t embed). That’s ok, I’ll wait.

Now all true Southern girls (and then some) know the entire GWTW script by hearts. And which dress Scarlett wore where. How do you think you would do?

(And boys, it’s ok to play from the women’s tees today.)

Obama Joke of the Day

From the mailbag:

The woman applying for a job in a Florida lemon grove seemed to be far too qualified for the job.

The foreman frowned and said, “I have to ask you this: “Have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?”

“Well, as a matter of fact, I have!

“I’ve been divorced three times, owned two GM cars and I voted for Obama.”

Breaking News: Barbara Espinosa Now Officially Infamous

How many people do you know that are quoted in The New York Times? Haha, I thought so.

Congrats, Barbara!
