Robert Stacy McCain Must Have Watched NCIS Last Night

Because Gibbs added a new rule (#51).

And so did Stacy. Rule 6. Enjoy the thrashing and as always, obey the rules.

P.S. Bob of the Belvedere had a Python moment over the new Rule.

Post Vacation Stress Syndrome

Faced with 556 unread emails bright and early this morning, today’s plans wilted. Add a surprise (expensive) brake repair, and I’m pinin’ for the beach. Again. So soon. And I’ve only just begun to peel (so sue me, I have Irish ancestors)…

To get me back in the swing of things, here’s a some linky-love. Enjoy.

Tea Party Crashers.

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble.

About that 3 a.m. phone call… Be sure to check out the lively discussion over at Potluck.

Couldn’t have happened to a finer man. Phil wins his third Masters for his wife. Our friend Bethany shows off her fabulous cookies – I’ll have a couple of dozen, please.

Scotland Yard and shoes. Not what you think.


Diary of the Traveling Fedora.

Preston’s point. It’s long, but read it all.

Doug’s history lesson.

Stacy McCain/French Quarter. Incoming!

Well, shoot, let’s just invite everybody for a welcome home party!

Krauthammer for President?

I think it’s a great idea. Swiped this graphic from The Other McCain:

You can actually buy one of the t-shirts here.

But Stacy, I must admit, I beat you to this sentiment by almost 2 weeks. It must be worth something.

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!

Stacy Went to Alabama and Didn’t Even Slow Down for His Belated Birthday Dinner

The Stacy has landed in Birmingham. He didn’t stop in his old home town despite the promise of a belated birthday dinner. He must be really focused to give up free food.

Hit his tip jar – he needs it.

2010 Dawns a New Year – Updated

And new hope that America can be saved from the approaching evil.

The Anchoress is known for her predictions – she has an interesting set this year. While there, read her take on the ‘Dems kill the DC voucher program’ debacle. Every issue for this administration boils down to politics.

Even the Georgia Governor can’t help it. [UPDATE II: From PP’s comments, fishtail dubs Sonny a “Sonnycrat, a one-person political party, himself.” How apropos. Seems that’s the political fashion these days.]

Paco has the White House transcript of the might-have-been Obama/Napolitano discussion immediately following the foiled Christmas day terrorist attack on NW 253. At least it is better than Obama’s original fluff. Rest assured, we are in the best of hands.

P&P has the year in pictures. Gee, just her shoes would pay two months car payments!

William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has only been blogging for a year – but he writes like an old pro! If you’re not reading him daily, you should be.

The Other McCain and The Camp of the Saints both begin the new year at new digs. Check them out.

No Sheeples Here continues to delight with pictures that are worth a thousand words.

Gerard asks the timely question, “Where do we get such men and why do we deserve them?”

Dear Gerard, despite what our government may believe, there are still men and women who love America, the promise of liberty, the freedom promised all by our Creator. You are one; I am another. There are many more, and we are rousing.

As we look upon the far-away gates of Mordor, with its belching smoke and stench of death, we should remember brave Aragorn’s words:

“Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down, but it is not this day. This day we fight! For all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!” LOTR, The Return of the King

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin discusses 2009’s underreported stories. Patriot Room has their own list.

Erick says something wicked this way comes and Smitty has cautions for the new year. The enemy, both within and without, is testing us. Read them both.

Double points bonus – Janet “The system worked” Napolitano may be under the bus soon!

Abby? Abby Who? Abby-Normal….

Just read it.

You are a dope-smoking, contagion-spreading menace to society, Andrew Sullivan, and you ought to be immediately deported. I think even Tom Tancredo, Pat Buchanan and Peter Brimelow would agree that your deportation is a matter of national security far more important than sending ICE to hassle a few hundred illegal Mexican poultry-plant workers in North Carolina.

All because he’s got this thang about a girl named Sarah

Happy Birthday Stacy!

Stacy is celebrating his 50th birthday today. Welcome to the club!

Drop by and have a piece of cake…he’s got a really BIG cake. You might want to take a fire extinguisher along, you know, just in case…

Bloggers for freedom, unite!

The Bill Sparkman Murder Report

Stacy has started his reporting on the Bill Sparkman murder in Clay County, Kentucky. Check back often as he unfolds the story.

And while you’re at it, Smitty’s (Stacy’s #1) blegging for votes at IowaHawk’s Steel Cage Death Match. Vote for #9. There’s also a cool Star Wars themed poster as well.

The Mega Non-Mud Related Roundup

Slowly digging out and drying out here on the sunny westside. Clean water has been restored! For once an upside to living closer to school – while the Not-So-Wee Highlander had his usual 5 minute commute, students and staff at Chapel Hill High School were not so lucky. Considering all roads that lead to CHHS were washed out except one, they averaged a 2.5 hour commute for approximately 5-8 miles. Hormones and road rage – hopefully the administration was understanding. And there are at least three other schools on that road, to boot! Might be time to buy an off-road four-wheelie something just to make it to school everyday.

Chain saws and hammers are the music of the day. So hoping for a few laughs to lighten our mood (and some linky-love as well) – here’s a round-up of “unusual” items and insights from the last few days.

(Fake) Steve (Jobs) pretends to be (Evil) Larry (Ellison) when he meets (Clueless, but with hair plugs) Joe Biden, but it all sounds like a scary geeky fantasy to me.

Bubba is tilting at windmills again.

I didn’t know you could put nitrous in a KIA. Or maybe it’s the sound of banjo music floatin’ down the holler that makes Stacy drive so fast.

Lance grew up on Mars, or somewhere. He never got his three-hour tour. Poor, abused child.

I guess now that Michigan is done cleaning up prostitution, meth-labs and gangs running wild, they can concentrate on the really tough crime out there. Like outlaw baby-sitters.

The Cardboard Cutout Commander in Chief – Is he a Mechanical Turk?
Interior Decorator? Altogether neutered?

Is Obama just another iteration of the Bad Boyfriend? Exhibit A: Told so many lies he can’t keep them straight anymore? Exhibit B:Told the opposite story and now backtracks to the lie before the other lie?

Who writes those ponderously verbose and narcissistic speeches for him, anyway?

Keith’s unrequited love
for Sarah continues, unabated.

And in closing, on a sad note, Douglas County officials believe they may have found the last missing person washed away during the massive rains Sunday evening. She died on her birthday, on her way home from a friend’s. Pray for her family and friends to find peace and understanding.

Delinking Is So Hard To Do

Not really. It had been over a year since I’d even been over or linked to Little Green Footballs. When he started attacking fellow bloggers, for some pretty petty and imagined slights, I just took my business elsewhere. But then he came after Stacy. Robert Stacy McCain – loud of mouth but big of heart. Poor, delusional Charles had slid so far to the left, he was sounding like Keith Olbermann and playing by the (gasp!) liberal playbook. In other words, if you disagreed with him, you were out. Smeared, labeled, libeled, cherry-picked, drug behind the king’s chariot and left for the dogs. So much for (ahem) civilized discourse.

So I delinked him. In the meantime, Hot Air keeps him in their blogroll, but in a more appropriate category.

Super Duper King of the Lefties Little Green Footballs

UPDATE: Perhaps I should explain: LGF was removed from the blogroll here over a year ago. By delinking, I mean I went through my posts and removed the links back. The trend I saw was interesting…as a beginner blogger, I linked there quite a bit. His reports on Islamic cruelty to women were compelling. He had strong opinions on the American ostrich politics regarding the tsunami of Islamic danger heading America’s way. Over the months I linked less; either I felt more comfortable with my own voice or his had changed it’s tune. Then he started attacking other bloggers. You know the rest of the story.

Carol of No Sheeples Here says, “…good riddance.”

UPDATE II: Linked by The Other McCain, who outlines the root cause of the “Little Green Meltdown.”

Tell Me, Was It Worth It?

Stacy of The Other McCain went to a book talk by Johan Norberg, author of Financial Fiasco: How America’s Infatuation with Home Ownership and Easy Money Created the Economic Crisis. He interviewed Mr. Norberg for The American Spectator:

Norberg said the TARP bailout would have the perverse effect of encouraging lenders and other financial institutions to engage in the same kinds of risky behaviors that led to last year’s meltdown.
“If bankers make stupid mistakes and we bail them out, it encourages them to take big risks in order to make short-term gains, knowing that if they lose out, they can always send the bill to the taxpayers,” Norberg said…

I’ve always said that the greed and avarice of liberals combined with backroom marxism is what set up the perfect storm of the 2008 election. What better way to tank America than to elect a puppet – reminiscent of Dauphins – that are easily controlled by various and sundry Richelieus pulling strings from behind lace curtains?

Is it worth it? Was one election worth it? Hello? Bueller? Bueller?

Look! A Memeorandum thread!

The Doctor is IN

Dr. R.S. McCain has hung out his shingle in this new age of ObaMedicine. Put down all liquids; send the little ones upstairs for their bath – you’ve been warned!

About That Transparency…

magnifying-glass

While the distractions abound, IG-Gate still chugs along.

Sensitive political considerations are involved, given the potential fallout from investigations into whether the Obama administration — which promised to be the most “transparent” in history — is trying to muzzle the independent watchdogs tasked with preventing waste, fraud and abuse in federal agencies.

Sensitive, as in bi-partisan. Got that? There is interest on both side of the aisle and the support is growing. The great back-lash of 2010 is picking up a little steam. Too bad the MSM doesn’t notice.

But Stacy continues to do the old-fashioned reporter work (more here) – talking to people in the know, asking hard questions, gathering facts. The kind of stuff “investigative journalists” do – not just reprint Democratic operative talking points.

He’s working way harder than our loopy POTUS is – wearing out his shoes in DC. So hit the man’s tip jar, why don’t ya?!
