Sheldon Was Right

Yeah, I know I said I’d be hyper-busy the next two weeks, but these two items deserve your attention.

First, Shelton was right to declare Wil Wheaton his mortal enemy. Wil has landed on the wrong side of the chicken you might say, breaking one of his own rules (“Don’t be a ****” — a word that has no place on family blog.) Jimmie Bise has more.

And secondly, and you know this already, the MINO (Media In Name Only) are trying to create buzz and momentum for the Obama campaign in misrepresenting polling information. When they say Obama is ahead in the polls, it really means Panic! Romney is ahead! Panic! Welcome to Opposite Land.

The next you know, we’ll be seeing Roseanne Barr in a tin foil bikini.

This Makes Me Sad

Maurice Sendak died last month. While one of my favorite children’s authors, I didn’t post on it because just face it, I was so sad about so many things, I just couldn’t work up the energy.

Now Mr. Sendak makes me sad again, but for a completely different reason. Seems one of his fondest fantasties in later life was to blow up Bush and Cheney, along with their wives, as a suicide bomber.

Sad, sad, sad.

It’s the Little Things

You can’t turn a cruise ship on a dime. But yes, you can turn it around, slowly and carefully to set it on course.

Exhibit A – N:

– Saying the President is “cool” is raaaaacist code.
– You keep saying that word. It doesn’t mean what you think it means.
– Obama’s very bad week.
Florida sues the Fed DHS to get a voter’s database that should belong to them anyway called “Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements” (SAVE). They want to use the database to verify the citizenship, and thus the voter registration, of suspected illegal immigrants in Florida. But the Feds say, “Nooooooooo….”
– Remember when Top Secret meant something? The current administration leaks solely for fun and pleasure...and to skew the political landscape in their favor.
– Americans net worth dropped 40% in the last 3 years. And that inheritance? Fughetaboutit.
– “Just Fine” gaffe now blamed on … wait for it… the media.
NY Dems about to nominate a former Black Panther, anti-Israel race baiter for Congress.
Obama channels his inner Caesar as he decides who lives and who dies. Sic Semper Tyrannis.
Politifact may be not as factual as you think. I’m shocked! Shocked, I tell you!
– If AG Eric Holder has a ‘Advance to Go, Collect $200’ presidential pardon card in his pocket, this might be the time to use it.
– House Republicans, 85 of ’em, don’t like the idea of their constituents being SWATted.
Navy unmanned drone crashes in eastern Maryland. What was it up to? Surely not looking for a mythical #BrentKimberlin SWATting… Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga.) wants to ground the drones domestically. Smart guy.
– We will take converts, one at a time. Welcome, Greg.

Morons. That Is All.

Swiped from Trog, who, by the way, is not a moron.

In honor of the #OccupyAShowerPlz crowds across the nation:

You are a moron. That is all.

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?

See, I Don’t Have a Problem

On the other hand, Stephanie does. She owns enough knitting needles to outfit a third world nation and even has an entire room for her stash.

Nobody ever said I was a knitphomaniac.

Oh wait, someone did today… hhhmmm….

What Do Meghan McCain, Google, Sarah Palin and Lewis Grizzard Have in Common?

They are all tied up neatly in this awesome post over at The Other McCain. Amazing. Lewis would be soooo proud.

Fellow UGA alumnus Fausta gets the money quote, though (and it doesn’t even mention Cam Newton),

What’s to be learned from this? Never underestimate how far a famous last name, a rich mom, mental vacuity and big boobs will carry you.

Jon Stewart Hearts Cat Stevens

You need no better illustration of how out of touch the Left/the Media are than last weekend’s “Restoring Sanity” rally on the National Mall. If you haven’t voted yet, check out Ed Morrissey’s pointed critique of the fatwa-spewing singer.

This goes hand-in-hand with Obama’s visit to Charlotteville, VA on Friday, where his supporters admitted they supported socialism.

Then head out to the polls, remembering how much the Left hates you.

Democratic Operatives Attacking Opponent’s Children – Move Along, Nothing to See Here

A few days ago, Stacy posted a lengthy and well-researched article on how Democratic operatives are using Twitter to smear opposing candidates (especially those affiliated with Tea Parties) and attack their children. It’s painful and sickening to read, and to also realize there are actually people out there that would stoop to this type of denigration. (Warning – not safe for little eyes!)

Now in Stacy’s second post on “TwitterGate,” we see that Neal Rauhauser, the self-proclaimed organizer of these coordinated attacks, has cut and run. His guilt is apparent, since he’s protected his Twitter account, shut down others from where the offending tweets originated and circled the wagons of the co-tweeters. Maybe he’s taking his lead from the CinC, who you will remember, “has nothing to hide”, either.

I call on all the Democratic candidates/incumbants who hired this man to kick him, and his organization, to the curb for their disgusting behavior! Prove to your constituents you believe in American values, not this trash.

Photoshop of the Day

Via King Shamus,

As they say, read the whole thing. Then go find your eye bleach.

Bloombergistan

Read the whole thing over at WyBlog.

Fausta has a great round-up. Pat and Jill both weigh in on the coward that is the mayor of NYC.

What Mayor Bloomberg doesn’t realize, is HE will be the first one they come for. Because the Muslims believe they conquered him, personally, as well.

Outrageous!

JournoList: Aiding and Abetting THE Narrative – UPDATED

Many others are blogging away at this, so I’ll keep it brief and then shower you with links. (Image dutifully swiped from VodkaPundit, as instructed.)

Remember back in 2008, during that mind-numbing campaign, how the MSM covered for Obama’s association with the poisonous Rev. Jeremiah Wright and attacked any one who dared bring it up as a racist? A frothing lunatic blinded by bigotry, by the very thought of a non-white man in the White House?

Remember how many of us sensed a … ahem… a complicity between the Obama campaign and the MSM? A secret agenda? A “narrative?”? And how we were subsequently attacked as black-helicopter conspiracy mongers? Right-wing hacks? Nutjobs?

Heh. We were right.

It’s like All The President’s Men, but in reverse.

The Daily Caller:

[Emphasis Admin] According to records obtained by The Daily Caller, at several points during the 2008 presidential campaign a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favored candidate. Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico, the Huffington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and the New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media, and in some cases plotted to fix the damage.

In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”

Michael Tomasky, a writer for the Guardian, also tried to rally his fellow members of Journolist: “Listen folks–in my opinion, we all have to do what we can to kill ABC and this idiocy in whatever venues we have. This isn’t about defending Obama. This is about how the [mainstream media] kills any chance of discourse that actually serves the people.

I’ll give you a minute to clean off your screen. You read that correctly. Journalists plotting to kill “…any chance of discourse that actually serves the people.”

Fausta and Stacy both comment on their charming fantasizing of attacking Tea Party members, igniting Matt Drudge, to even Rush Limbaugh having a heart attack.

Moe Lane on the future career choices facing these so-called “journalists.” They have learned the power of “Trust no one…” the hard way.

Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin notes their Election Night “ecstasy”. Makes you want to take a bath, doesn’t it?

Ed Driscoll at PJM: Who needs a Manchurian Candidate when you can have a Manchurian Listserv instead? Then POTUS can play golf all the time, because he knows his lackeys will attack his detractors cover for him. Oh wait….

UPDATE: The hits keep on comin’. More from The Daily Caller on JournoList’s hyperventalation over McCain picking Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008. Stacy comments further on the suspicious “synchronicity of liberal media messaging.”

Friday Fashion Faux Pas

Oil-spill chic? Does she sport a Che camisole under that monstrosity? Dear Heavens, where are this woman’s handlers?

Or as Nice Deb (from whom I gleefully swiped the picture) says,

Holy Mackerel…would you look at this

Would someone please explain to this woman that America expects a certain bit of decorum from their First Ladies? The Election night dress. The Inaugural Ball bedspread dress. The Medal of Honor ceremony dress. My big toe has more fashion sense than MO and her stable of assistants combined.

Did she NOT understand the mission? That she (being the FLOTUS and therefore attending to the duties expected of said FLOTUS to empathize and encourage the masses) was supposed to buoy the spirits of those effected by the horrendous oil spill in the Gulf, not BE THE SPILL?

Words… just… escape me…

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin speaks up,

Yikes. That’s like visiting a state that was devastated by a forest fire and arriving in a limo covered with flame decals.

Pretty in Pink

Gerard is channeling his inner Sheeple with his latest creation.

Don’t look. You’ll need a mind-wipe afterwards.

Told ya.

Our Potty-Mouthed President

Part the first, here.

Obama on BP – he wants to kick somebody’s a$$. Yes, really. He even said it on television.

Erick is as floored as I am at how low this President has sunk.

He is talking to experts not to find out how to solve the problem but to find out whose ass to kick? Seriously?

That is the President of the United States in his own words.

There is one well leaking caused by the collapse of one platform owned by one company.

Not only has Barack Obama not once talked to the CEO of that company, his big donor British Petroleum, he overreacted and shut down every company’s offshore drilling — every single one. He put, effective immediately, tens of thousands of people on the unemployment line.

And in the President of the United States’ own words, he’s not talking to experts to figure out how to solve the problem, but to figure out who to assign blame to.

This is not leadership. Heck, this isn’t even bullying.

This is failure.

Contrast that with the commencement address he gave to Kalamazoo Central High School (the same day, even?) where he admonished the graduates

Don’t Make Excuses. Take Responsibility Not Just For Your Successes, But For Your Failures As Well. … It’s The Easiest Thing In The World To Start Looking Around For Someone To Blame.”

Really. And a toe-tapper to boot.

Doublethink doublespeak. Reminds me of something I saw over at Gerard’s.

Jim Hoft has an excellent list of things Obama blames Bush, and the GOP, and America for. Too bad O can’t stomach his own medicine.

UPDATE:
From American Thinker

That was a first. By uttering that line, Obama crossed a line that no president ever crossed before, passing another milestone in the advance of vulgarity in our culture, and lowering public discourse to a new nadir.

Indeed, it is one thing to spout vulgarities in private meetings or in battle, but knowingly on national television? If you want to further denigrate yourself in public opinion, go right ahead, but it’s another thing entirely to sully the Office of the President. And get your d$%*#$ can off the Resolute desk.
