Leadership

While John McCain's decision to suspend his campaign for a few days was, as we were assured by the MSM and the Obama campaign (but I repeat myself) nothing more than a political stunt, and certainly not an effort to do work toward doing something about the current financial crisis, you can rest assured that Nancy Pelosi is taking this thing very, very seriously.

Yet Another Attack On Bacon Owners' Rights

Twenty eight high school seniors in the town of Middletown, CT decided to have an early morning cookout before class. Predictably, the fools running the school district suspended the heroic youths for trying to expand their culinary skills.

And the worst part? Bacon was abused.

They joked about the incident and admitted disappointment they had not gotten around to cooking eggs before the powers that be put an end to the merrymaking - a birthday celebration for Mike Aronne, one of the teens involved.

According to grill-owner Kyle Sheehan, most of the seniors had late arrival and were not expected in school until 9:30, so they met in the lot at around 8:30, set up the grill and chilled, as the aroma of bacon wafted through the morning air.

"We didn't have beer, we didn't have weed, we had bacon," said Eddie Mangini, who along with the others did not anticipate the two-day suspension.

The students asserted the gathering was quiet and at least a football field away from the school, so could not have been a disruption to underclassmen endeavoring to learn.

None of the students expected to get in trouble, they said.
"The reason why we didn't expect it was because it wasn't really even a party, we were just in a small group outside," Kyle said. "A small group talking, not being loud, not being dangerous ... We were just cooking bacon."
Furthermore, students insisted outdoor barbecues are a normal end-of-year, on-campus activity among graduating seniors and said the only difference was this was done at the beginning of the year.

"They do it almost every year," Kyle said. "In past years teachers have been involved ... They would come out and get a piece of bacon and go back in and nobody got in any trouble."

Parents were equally mystified.

"Even the principal said they did it before," Anthony Hinton said. "They were cooking eggs and bacon. We don't know the policy that was broken ... [Kris] did not know that there's a policy against cooking in the parking lot."


This assault on fine, processed pork products must not stand!

Bad year for Philly Police Department

From SYLG, we see that another Philly Police officer has been murdered and another shot, which makes for two in the last eighteen days, and four for the year.  For those unaware, Wyatt is a detective in Philly. 

The citizens of Philly or the leadership of the city have to move to take back control of the city from criminals if they want to keep this sort of thing from happening.  Philly is going to turn into an east-coast version of Detroit if they don't get things under control soon.  I know I do a lot, a whole lot of gratuitous Philly-bashing here, but I'd like to see things get better there.

Just go away, already

God, I can't wait until this douche finally retires and, hopefully, wiles away the rest of his life in obscurity in some out-of-the-way corner of Nebraska:

Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska on Wednesday became the nation's most prominent Republican officeholder to publicly question whether Sarah Palin has the experience to serve as president.

"She doesn't have any foreign policy credentials," Hagel said in an interview. "You get a passport for the first time in your life last year? I mean, I don't know what you can say. You can't say anything."
You know what? That sounds good, Chuck. Just don't say anything. Just shut your goddamn word-hole forever. That would be a ginormous improvement, you fucking RINO tool.

Here he comes to save the day...

Here's a bit of rather literal lefty hero worship for you.  The propaganda build-up of this guy crossed over into the ridiculous quite a while ago.  Anyway, I can't say I'm surprised that Alex Ross would create something like that, seeing as how he's the one who brought us this charming graphical representation of BDS:

Bad news, guys

It looks like we've lost a very important demographic—the washed-up, has-been actress vote:

Don’t get me started. She’s the anti-Wonder Woman. She’s judgmental and dictatorial, telling people how they’ve got to live their lives. And a superior religious self-righteousness … that’s just not what Wonder Woman is about. Hillary Clinton is a lot more like Wonder Woman than Mrs. Palin. She did it all, didn’t she?

No one has the right to dictate, particularly in this country, to force your own personal views upon the populace — religious views. I think that is suppressive, oppressive, and anti-American. We are the loyal opposition. That’s the whole point of this country: freedom of speech, personal rights, personal freedom. Nor would Wonder Woman be the person to tell people how to live their lives. Worry about your own life! Worry about your own family! Don’t be telling me what I want to do with mine.

I like John McCain. But this woman — it’s anathema to me what she stands for. I think America should be very afraid. Very afraid. Separation of church and state is the one thing the creators of the Constitution did agree on — that it wasn’t to be a religious government. People should feel free to speak their minds about religion but not dictate it or put it into law.

Yes, foax, that's Lynda Carter, teevee's Wonder Woman, who has apparently lost her fucking mind and imagines that Sarah Palin is some kind of female Christian Ayatollah, ready to replace the Constitution with the Ten Commandments or some such retarded fever dream.

You can go back to obscurity now, Lynda. We'll let you know sometime in the next twenty or so years if we'd like to hear your opinion.

Pink hates Palin

“This woman hates women.”
That, of course, is alleged musician Pink talking about Gov. Sarah Palin.  I'll say what I said in HotAir's quote of the day post: "Shouldn’t she be off writing another song about how rough life was to her in high school? I mean, it’s easier than becoming an adult."

The latest on that Agriprocessors immigration raid, apparently they're also facing 9000 counts for violation of child labor laws.

Remember that Roger Ebert column I mentioned?

Apparently, the internet doesn't.

And here I thought Roger Ebert was a movie critic

I know, I know, he's a lefty who writes about political stuff on occasion. But, honestly, I couldn't give a damn about his opinion on just about anything about the position of his thumb in regards to a movie.

That said, fatboy is given a forum in a Chicago newspaper to be incredibly condescending toward Sarah Palin, who (horrors!) has never been to Europe:

And how can you be her age and never have gone to Europe? My dad had died, my mom was working as a book-keeper and I had a job at the local newspaper when, at 19, I scraped together $240 for a charter flight to Europe. I had Arthur Frommer's $5 a Day under my arm, started in London, even rented a Vespa and drove in the traffic of Rome. A few years later, I was able to send my mom, along with the $15 a Day book.

You don't need to be a pointy-headed elitist to travel abroad. You need curiosity and a hunger to see the world. What kind of a person (who has the money) arrives at the age of 44 and has only been out of the country once, on an official tour to Iraq? Sarah Palin's travel record is that of a hopeless provincial.

You know what? I've never been to Europe, either. I'd like to go someday, but the fact that I haven't been there doesn't make me feel stupid. In fact, I've never been outside of the United States, but I've been all around the country. I've met people from many different regions, and I've met people right here in the US who come from all over the world. Am I a provincial? Are you sure you want to make that kind of argument, Roger? You don't have to be a pointy-headed elitist to travel abroad, but you might just be a dick if you suggest that if you've never been to Europe, you're some kind of hillbilly.

Furthermore, as Ebert acknowledges, Palin has been to Iraq, which, if I'm not mistaken, is still technically a warzone. Which, if you ask me, sounds a little more challenging than riding around Rome on a Vespa. I know, the traffic there is notoriously bad, but there's relatively little chance of being blown to hell by an IED in Italy. Well, that's just a guess, seeing as how I'm the kind of rube who's never been there.

Ebert calls Palin "a shallow, chirpy person with those vaguely alarming eyeglasses," and writes that he trusts that "the American people will see through Palin's facade, and save the Republic in November." You know, because electing Sarah Palin the Vice President would be an unmitigated disaster on the level of the Civil War, whereas electing Ebert's hometown hero, an empty suit who's arguably the least-qualified major party candidate ever to get the presidential nod?  Draw your own conclusions.

They're on to us

Sorry, guys, but we can't make any more jokes or even slightly disparaging remarks about "community organizers." Because, you see, it's (wait for it) RAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCIIIIISSSSSST!!!1!11!!!eleventy!

[Some dude the blogger quotes] is absolutely right on the merits, but, make no mistake about it, "community organizers" is code for 'uppity black people who are taking your tax dollars.'
And that's from a "science blog," so you know he's right. Another "science blogger" notes:
We know they speak in dog-whistles.
Again, science. That means that you've all been proven racists. For shame.

Fat load offers downloads

Not that you could pay anybody around here to watch it, but Michael Moore is giving away his latest propaganda piece for free online. Yay.

The film, "Slacker Uprising," follows Moore's 62-city tour during the 2004 election to rally young voters. It will be available for three weeks as a free download to North American residents, beginning Sept. 23. An official announcement of the film is planned for Friday.
So, wait a minute. He's actually touting a 2004 tour he did to rally the mythical "youth vote" to turn out and vote against Bush?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Some "uprising" that was.  What a maroon!

What is it with dudes named Andrew?

Obviously, I believe in the power of blogging. I mean, my own crapblog has allowed me to connect with literally tens of people. But in this Reuters story on the way blogging and things like Twitter are shaping this election campaign, some dude they quote goes a little bit overboard (with my emphasis):

The new media amplify, and strengthen, what might previously have been simple comments shared by neighbors over the back fence, and make them too dangerous to ignore, said Andrew Rasiej, a Democratic strategist and founder of Personal Democracy Forum, a grass-roots politics website.

"The McCain campaign I believe had no choice but to respond to the buzz that was churning on the Internet," Rasiej said. "To ignore it any further would have ceded the hill to the revolutionaries who were demanding answers online long before the mainstream media even opens its mouth to ask the question."

Dude, seriously, Andrew? You see a bunch of douchebags who were spreading vile rumors about a seventeen-year-old girl and her infant brother as "revolutionaries" of some sort? Wow.
