Quote of the Day

As usual, it’s Smitty at The Other McCain, on the administration’s trustworthiness during the fiscal cliff shenanigans “negotiations”…

Trusting Obama to do anything other than throw you under the bus is like dropping off your children at the Jeffrey Dahmer Day Care Center.

Smitty – Post of the Day

Smitty takes Ezra Klein to the woodshed and thrashes him with a turkey drumstick. It still baffles me that such a liberal-bleating gasbag is able to draw a paycheck.

Outstanding.

Pass Around the Cigars

Smitty is a dad.

And what a handsome little fella he is. I wonder how long it will be before Smitty gets him into a bow-tie?

Ahhhh, babies.

A Name, A Name, What’s In a Name?

Sorry so quiet. Hip-deep in post-production troubleshooting, so will probably still be apologizing for even more silence into next week.

But say “BABY,” and you’ve snagged my attention, even if it is for just a minute.

Smitty is imploring the internetz to help him name the younger Smith due later this summer. I left my suggestion, go leave yours.

Smitty Two-fer

Smitty of The Other McCain, zinged out two quotable “quotes of the day” within 24 hours, and it’s not even Friday! Enjoy.

On Dahlia Lithwick’s Jane Curtain moment,

No, Dahlia, the situation where Congress passes whatever comes out of the printer and tosses it over the hedge to clobber the economy is not a proper state of affairs. The parade of clowns who are five weeks off of getting kicked to the curb have sworn an oath, at which they scoff, to support and defend that Constitution.

Second, on Obama’s convenient skirting of “the separation of church and state” axiom by asking church leaders to push the flawed Obamacare:

The chutzpah on display is astounding, given the substantial legal questions unresolved.

Some think that Woodward’s new book will spell his Waterloo. Others that the PantherGate coverup could be a Little Big Horn moment. I think that the dread of the November election, itself, will devastate the President like the Japanese did the Russians at Tsushima. Yes, it’s an obscure reference, but, if you study the event, you’ll see how like that Russian fleet these Democrats are. So hapless as to border on pitiful, without meriting pity.

Fold up that Risk board, the game is over.

Quote of the Day

Smitty, of The Other McCain:

The recovery will be political chemotherapy for us all.

Everybody Loves a Man in a Skirt

Or a kilt.

Smitty is a piper. Who knew?

Now I know he was robbed, robbed in being omitted from the 2010 20 Hottest Conservative Men. It takes a real man to wear a kilt. Ask the guy who throws the caber.

Smitty has more.

The Fausta Interview by Normblog

Fausta (queen bloggess, good friend and CPAC roomie) is profiled over at normblog.

The hat-tip goes to Smitty at The Other McCain, who has also posted a pretty cool picture.

Random Miscellany

Meet my new BFF.

Got a list and checkin’ it twice. Fire them all.

What exactly did Obama promise the Georgia AG to shut him up?

The Tea Party store is open for business!

Joe Biden – cool kid or middle-school loser?

The list of amendments to the HCR bill is a who’s who of what is wrong with it.

Best Facebook status seen in a while:

I do not like it Uncle Sam, I do not like it Sam I am. I do not like these dirty crooks, I do not like how they cook books. I do not like when Congress steals, I do not like their secret deals. I do not like this Speaker Nan, I do not like this ‘YES WE CAN!’. I do not like this kind of hope, I do not like it, nope! nope! nope! If you don’t like this government bloat, then pray to God and for Pete’s sake: VOTE!

“…97 miles of sunshine blown up the fundament…”

Roll call on Senate vote to Repeal the Albatross. (In Sen. Isakson’s defense, he was in the hospital at the time!)

Stacy is on his way to Vegas. Law enforcement has been advised.

Obama FAIL – Mohammed Atta’s recruiter walks away a free man.

Rep. John Dingell gives new meaning to “dingleberry.

Congress’ Scorched Earth Policy

I always thought disdainful, arrogant disregard of the populace was more the Clinton’s milieu, but today the US House proved me wrong. They passed the Slaughter House rule, 222-203. My own disgraceful representative was a YEA, of course, hanging with his pal, the third-world president.

RUSH: Well, Snerdley’s in a little fit here, folks. He thinks I’ve really stepped in it by referring to our president as a Third World president. “What do you mean by that? You better explain what you mean by this.” It’s very simple. We have to destroy our country in order to save our leader’s face. Now, where does this happen? It happens in Cuba. It happens in North Korea. It happens in Venezuela. It happens in every Third World country there is. They destroy countries in order to save their face, build monuments to themselves. They’re leaders for life or what have you. This is not a health care bill anymore. This is a save Obama’s face bill. This is save Obama’s bacon bill. Save Obama’s presidency bill. It doesn’t matter what’s in it!

He’ll sign whatever he gets, as long as it says “health care reform” somewhere in it.

The estimable Smitty of The Other McCain throws down the gauntlet, along with excellent visual aids. Pelosi is about to have her Yamamoto moment and no amount of botox will protect her.

Long time readers know I don’t have a tip jar and don’t blog for money. I don’t often suggest giving money to particular causes, because after all it’s your money and your decision on how to manage it (gee, I’d make a terrible Congressperson). But today I urge you, if you love America, to donate a few bucks to Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation to fight the atrocity that happened this afternoon in the House. Via Erick at RedState,

God bless Mark Levin.

Here’s the money quote:

“Landmark has already prepared a lawsuit that will be filed in federal court the moment the House acts. Such a brazen violation of the core functions of Congress simply cannot be ignored. Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution is clear respecting the manner in which a bill becomes law. Members are required to vote on this bill, not claim they did when they didn’t. The Speaker of the House and her lieutenants are temporary custodians of congressional authority. They are not empowered to do permanent violence to our Constitution.”

You can give to the Landmark Legal Foundation here. The future of America may depend on it.

GQ in the CPAC Blogger’s Lounge?

Evidently they slunk through Blogger’s Lounge like “Medea,” aka Susie Benjamin. By the way, Caleb Howe is her new BFF.

But the real news here is Team Stacy/Smitty made GQ for their stylish renderings of gentlemen’s head coverings.

Well done, fellas!

Quote of the Day

Smitty of The Other McCain was interviewed by Jumping in Pools and spouted this outrageous metaphor (you know how I like outrageous metaphors!):

Either Americans, as a community, will organize for liberty and survival, or join him [Obama] on a great Marxist funeral pyre, replete with pseudo-Skynyrd dirge: “Un-Free Jail-Bird”.

I can see the lighters firing up as we speak…
