Oh, and another thing, yeah, I'll say it, KITH > SNL.

Overreaction

You might have heard that Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, called Anita Hill a couple of Saturdays ago. Not a bright idea, in my humble opinion.

Here, according to the LAT, is a transcript of the voicemail she left:

"Good morning, Anita Hill, it's Ginni Thomas. I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband. So give it some thought and certainly pray about this and come to understand why you did what you did. OK, have a good day."
Again, according to the LAT, and apparently confirmed by a campus official, Hill turned the voicemail message over to security at Brandeis University, where she teaches "social policy, law and women's studies."

The campus authorities then proceeded to turn the recording over to the fucking FBI.

Again, while I think it was a really, really bad idea for Virginia Thomas to contact Hill, go back and look at that transcript. Is there anything remotely threatening going on there that the FBI should be looking into? Was there a crime committed?

Mr. Hands was unavailable for comment

Dude,

“So he went over there to check on the horses. He later admitted to police that he may have inadvertently stuck his fingers inside the horse."


The creeper is being brought up on a host of charges, and will likely have to say,



...for a few years, anyway.

Thought I'd add that song just to make it more creepy and vomit inducing.

You're welcome.

Yes, I'm smarter than you

Thoughts on the MFM et al's the idiot peasants are revolting meme - Heavens knows that there are few people who are as intellectually arrogant as I.  But here's the thing - I do not presume that those who hold opinions which differ from mine are per se idiots.  I allow them to open their mouths and remove all doubt, but, my initial assumption is that said person is operating from a different set of assumptions and is placing priority on different values than mine.  If I demand that others accept that I am opining in good faith, and I do, then I owe it to my opposition to do the same.  Such a presumption is a fundamental proposition of clear and logical thinking.  The fact that Obama, the MFM and the rest of that ilk refuse to accept that there are legitimate grounds for opposition says far more about them than it does about me.

Oh, I just don't know where to begin

I guess I'll begin at the beginning of this stupefying piece from the WaPo's Richard Cohen:

Can it be that the conscience of the Republican Party resides in a 26-year-old woman who has never held elective office and derives her authority, not to mention name recognition, for the fame of her father? I am referring to Meghan McCain...
Okay, let me stop you right there and answer your mind-numbingly retarded query with a firm and resounding "AW, HELLS NO," Richard. MeggyMac is not the anything of the Republican Party, much less its conscience. And authority? Seriously? You get paid to write this shit? I mean, nobody to the right of fucking Lenin gives a shit about what she thinks regarding the GOP.

Cohen is, of course slobbering over Meggy's appearance on a Sunday chat show where she called Christine O'Donnell "a nutjob." Cohen calls this deep analysis a "searing evocation of the truth" and a "refreshing statement of an obvious fact." Now, I think O'Donnell's a little flaky, and she's said some stuff that has made me wince, but elevating a lame insult to the level that Cohen does here suggests to me that there's maybe just a little more than some casual antipathy going on here.

Cohen continues:
McCain went further. Appearing on the ABC show "This Week with Christiane Amanpour," she noted that O'Donnell "has no real history, no real success in any kind of business. And what that sends to my generation is: One day, you can just wake up and run for the Senate, no matter how [little] experience you have." The only quibble my generation would have with that statement is the allegation that O'Donnell woke up. She seems to have slept through much of recent history.
Really? That's your only quibble? You don't have any problem with the fact that the only fucking reason this ditz is making these sort of pronouncements on national television is because her dad is famous? Which is, I noticed, a detail that you actually noted in your opening paragraph? No quibble over the idea that someone with no experience of her own is supposed to be taken seriously when leveling the same charge against someone else who is actually a few years older? Did that escape your notice, or are you willfully glossing over that shit?

I'll skip past his "blah, blah, the Tea Partiers are teh stoopid" and "Republicans only want to win" (like that's not something Dems worry about) boilerplate for this...
No doubt Meghan McCain will hear from her father about what she said. It was he who promulgated the GOP doctrine of win-at-any-cost when he chose Sarah Palin to be his running mate. Palin was, and remains, highly unqualified for the presidency, talented only in demagoguery. She came, like Eve, out of John McCain’s rib.
Three words, Dick: Barack. Hussein. Obama.

And that's really what this is all about, isn't it? People like Cohen can't own up to the idea that they backed an inexperienced, incompetent empty suit for a job—THE JOB—that he was completely unqualified for, so they resort to shouting "Look over there!" at whoever is the current object of their Two Minute's Hate. And when a "Republican" or "conservative" stalking horse like MeggyMac or Kathleen Parker or The Twat comes along to do their dirty work for them, so much the better! That invite to the next cocktail party is on the way.

Cohen concludes his drivel with this:
The pureness, the political virginity that is supposed to be the virtue of the political outsider, has come, as it is supposed to, from Meghan McCain. "Out of the mouths of babes…" the Bible says. And not a moment too soon.
I'm not a very religious guy, but I believe there's also a Bible verse that talks about noting the mote in someone else's eye while ignoring the beam in your own.

We Still Do Awesome Things

I often complain privately (often in reference to our pathetic excuse for a space program, etc) about humanity having given up on DOING SOMETHING AWESOME.  Going to the moon may have been caused by competition with the Commies but no matter why it happened, it caused a billion people's jaws to drop with wonder at what we as a species could accomplish. 


What was the last thing we did like that?  American history was filled with the biggest this and the most amazing that because we had the drive to connect the Atlantic with the Pacific or the audacity to Dam the Colorado river.  


In mid November, the Hoover Dam Bypass will be open to traffic, substantially reducing the drive time from Las Vegas and California to Grand Canyon West, home of the world famous Skywalk glass walkway. 

I travel through the area roughly once per year so I've had the pleasure of discovering this amazing project by accident (I believe my words were, 'holy shit, what the fuck is that') to its near completion this past year. 

It may be just a bridge but having watched them build it, I can say the ambition of the men building it was well off the charts.  The bridge absolutely TOWERS over the canyon and the engineering nearly overshadows the Dam.  

Disclaimer:  My dad is a civil engineer so this shit is probably way more awesome to me than it is to the average person.

Also, the reason this needed to be built is almost 100% 9-11 related.  The (warranted) security precautions enacted for the Dam reduced traffic to a virtual standstill and a much higher capacity was needed, especially because your alternatives to that road are almost exactly zero.

Chicago, ensuring fair elections since never

I'd be more outraged if the Green Party candidate had a snowball's chance in hell of winning.

The last name of Green Party gubernatorial candidate Rich Whitney is misspelled as "Whitey" on electronic-voting machines in nearly two dozen wards -- about half in predominantly African-American areas -- and election officials said Wednesday the problem cannot be corrected by Election Day.

The misspelling turned up on touch-screen machines in 23 wards overall. Whitney's name is spelled correctly on the machines' initial screens showing all of the candidates' names, but it is misspelled on review screens that later show a voter his or her choices, said Jim Allen, spokesman for the Chicago Board of Elections
I blame Arne Duncan.  The proofreader is probably a product of Chicago Public Schools.

(I may be updating this with a source later, I'm not sure how secretive the moron who posted this on Facechimp is.

Update: H/T Wodeshed.)

It's amore!

I can't decide if this funnier than endy or endier than funny.
You make the call!

You're the stunning raven haired goddes who was in the (snip) room with my girlfriend and me.
You don't know this but I was filming you with the camcorder the entire time
...snip...
I hope this message finds you and we can form a bond, emotionally and physically, based upon our shared experience of....

So what was the room where he was filming? What was the shared experience? Why does he want to name his daughter after this raven haired beauty? How funny/endy is it that he wants to screw her?

She's the doctor or nurse (he doesn't say) who was in the delivery room as his girlfriend was having their baby. He filmed the hottie instead of the birth. The "shared experience" is "bringing a child into the world together."

High-fucking-larious. I thought I was bad trying to pick someone up at a funeral.
Anybody have any worse tales of trying to pick someone up inappropriately?

Correct and stupid are not mutually exclusive positions

Some background: Okay, you may have heard that here in California, we have a ballot proposition (Prop. 19) that would essentially make it legal for adults to possess a certain quantity of marijuana (I believe it's an ounce) for personal use. (More on my personal views on that later.)

The DOJ released a memo on Thursday, wherein Eric Holder stated,

"We will vigorously enforce the (federal law) against those individuals and organizations that possess, manufacture or distribute marijuana for recreational use, even if such activities are permitted under state law."

Okay, since it's really, really long, the rest is below the fold...
more...

Round the 'Tubes Shit edition

Shithead Dem appointed judge who donated to the Dem in the race orders GOP candidate's divorce records unsealed a week before the election and then recuses self. Click for who to help.

Shit! We were so close to my ideal way for this end of civilization to actually finish. A 20 ft asteroid missed the Earth by 28,000 miles on Tuesday. If it had hit just right, that wouldn't have totally screwed things up, just made them more....fluid for a year or two. Sort of an interplanetary "reset" button.

Marines sending good shit to Afghanistan for Christmas need your help.

DNC chairman Tim Kaine is full of shit.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine suggested Thursday that there’s concern that Tea Party activists will intimidate Democrats at the polls in November.

Actually, I agree. Dems are very intimidated by being voted out of office

No Shit.
The Democrats are the party of no jobs.

That's some funny Shit.
How to fill a hole.
No, not that hole.
No, not that one either.
Just shut your pie hole and make with the clicky.

Who Will The Democrats Allow Into Their Bunker?

Remember that movie with Morgan Freeman about the meteor set to hit the earth and cause an ELE (Extinction Level Event)? Remember how they held a lottery to determine who would be allowed to live in a bunker and survive? Well, it looks as though an ELE is on the horizon for the Democrat Party. And to make things even sweeter, the Democrats are starting to cut off campaign money to candidates they view as dead in the water, leaving them outside the locked bunker doors while only the ones deemed as viable are allowed into the room for safety.


Good. Fuck them. Wipe them off the fucking map. Cometfuck their careers with the flaming fuckfury of millions of voters. Leave as few standing as possible. And lock the doors of the bunker from the outside so that the rest cannot come out for air. I want fucking blood. I fucking want to see them despair. And I want to gloryfuck their lives so mightily, they will need a compass and a flashlight to know which fuckhole is which.

Yes, let's be the fucking comet that ends the left as we know. Let's bring about the ELE for the left. Let's see them desperately banging on the fucking door wanting in as they see the fuckwaves and flaming fuckhate of a pissed off electorate come raining down on them. And then, let's fucking laugh at their misfortune.

Fuck them for ignoring us. Fuck them for sending goons out to beat us up. Fuck them for lying. Fuck them for calling us racist. Fuck them for their refusal to face reality. And fuck them because I am fucking fed up with them.

I owe it to the future of this country to be the comet. I owe it to my family to be the comet. And I owe it to generations unborn to be the fucking comet so that they can live in the same freedom and opportunity I grew up with. And to that extent, I must urge one and all to do their best to fuck the future of the leftists so vigorously, they will no longer be a viable threat to our future.

Get the locks ready lefties, for we are coming. Comet Angryvoter Fuckyoulefty is on the way. And it will not fucking discriminate between "conservative" Democrats and leftists.

I feel like there's a missing word here

Let's see, what's the word I'm thinking of? I think it starts with a "D," but I just can't seem to put my finger on it...



Huh. It'll probably come to me. Eventually. In a few weeks.

(Via someone who should have known better.)

Update: I should note that this guy is a decorated combat veteran who has served our country honorably. Good on him for that.

It's just that he seems unwilling to mention a certain detail about his background. Funny, that.
