Alamogordo, the musical

While you rubes in flyover country were busy listening to your Rush Limbaugh talk-radio-hatefests, your cultural betters were busy watching this:



Unfortunately, no, I don't think it's some sort of elaborate joke.

Welcome to the New Economy

In case you were wondering, the United States is no longer a capitalist nation. 

Electing a Marxist leads to Marxism?   Who could have seen that coming?

About damn time

Hey, look, Obama took some time off from his busy schedule of hosting fixed events and insulting the handicapped on national television to actually, you know, nominate some people to work at the Treasury Department.  Wow, it only took him 67 days!

Fantastic.

Happy talk

Part 2,864 in the "Imagine the OUTRAGE if Bush had done this" series:

At a time when his Washington honeymoon is turning into a hazing, President Barack Obama and his team are launched on a strategy to sail above the traditional White House press corps by reaching out to liberal commentators, local reporters and ethnic media.

The highest-profile moments in the new approach have been well-noted, such as the president giving an interview to progressive radio host Ed Schultz and Obama calling on a reporter from the liberal-leaning Huffington Post at his first news conference.
Oh, wait. We don't even have to imagine it. Anybody else remember Jeff Gannon?

This is doubly lame because President Thin-Skin is apparently afraid that the notoriously conservative [yeah, right] Washington press corps are going to be mean and maybe ask a question a little harder than, say, "Is it difficult being the Smartest Man in the World?"  Uh-huh.

Um, what the hell?

This is a video from Botox Nan's own Youtube channel (and, yes, it's a couple of months old, but my brother just told me about it) .  Make sure to watch the whole thing...

Where's the outrage?

I don't pay much attention to the financial news, mainly because I'm usually broke and lately, it's all bad news all the time, but I saw this and it pisses me off a lot more than the AIG shenanigans:

Fannie Mae is planning to pay retention bonuses of as much as $611,000 each to several top executives of the government-controlled mortgage finance titan. Sibling company Freddie Mac is planning similar awards.
So, the geniuses who got us into the mortgage mess by giving people who had no business owning homes toxic loans (I know, RAAAAAACIST!!!) are getting hundreds of thousands in bonus money?  I can't wait to hear the shrieks of outrage from the usual suspects.

God, I hate people sometimes

There's a crowd of probably more than a hundred people outside the octuplet mom's new house, waiting for her to come home with two of the babies, and news crews are there interviewing some of the idiots.  One of them that they talked to mentioned that he had just rushed over after getting off from work.

Oh, and hundreds of Obamatrons camped out overnight to get tickets to see Teh Teleprompter Messiah in a town hall meeting in Costa Mesa.  Judging by the people the local Fox affiliate interviewed, he won't have to worry about getting too many tough questions.  Well, that is, except for, "Where's my gubmint money?  Gimmie gimmie gimme!!!"

Forever angry

George W. Bush has started raising funds to pay for his presidential library on the campus of Southern Methodist University, and some of the usual suspects are unhappy:

By this fall, he’ll be armed with architect’s renderings and will hold travel around the country to meet with groups and build support for the complex on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

Some of his new neighbors are less than thrilled with the plan, with a handful of history and political science professors lined up to criticize it.
Interestingly enough, none of them is actually quoted in the article. But that's neither here nor there. For me, it's just fun to imagine them having to pass the place every day for the rest of their tenure, cursing under their breath.

Yeah, good luck with that

Something tells me that this nonprofit organization is going to be super popular:

Claiming O.J. Simpson was dealt an injustice, an effort is under way to solicit money for the former football star's appeal of his Nevada conviction and prison sentence on kidnapping and armed robbery charges.

Barrett Prody, the brother of Simpson's former girlfriend, created a nonprofit corporation and an Internet Web site, the Society Against Legal Injustice Inc., to raise money for Simpson.

Oh, yeah, that's gonna be right up there with the Red Cross and the Humane Society.

Scandalous!

It's comforting to know that even in these troubled times, people can still find petty, stupid shit to complain about:

Passengers are angry about being forced to fly on a new Southwest Airlines plane featuring a bikini-clad model, saying it is "soft porn" and is offensive to families.

Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli, currently dating actor Leonardo DiCaprio, is pictured lying seductively in a revealing white bikini along the length of the Boeing 737 as part of a promotional deal with Sports Illustrated.

The latest addition to the US-based airline was unveiled this month and is deployed like other aircraft in the fleet, servicing all its routes.

The airline has received a flood of criticism on its corporate blog about the promotion, with many passengers complaining about having to board an aircraft “covered in pornography”.

Click on the link to see a photo of this scandalously smutty and sinful pornographic plane. That is, if you aren't afraid of having your very immortal soul damned straight to hell for all of eternity.

Does anyone else have a problem with this?

In an article about how Obama and Sheriff Pluggy are backing the Employee Free Choice Act (aka Card Check, aka Banning Secret Ballots), I noticed this little nugget:

Before the inauguration, AFL-CIO President John Sweeney said he'd been to the White House only once in the past eight years. Now he visits at least once a week.
Well, that's just great. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm sure going to sleep better from now on, knowing that a union boss like Sweeney has such easy access to the president.

Oh, snap!

So, Rush Limbaugh misspoke at CPAC, mistakenly attributing some lines from the Declaration of Independence to the Constitution, and a Kossak gloats:

But that phrase is nowhere to be found in the constitution. It's actually from the Declaration of Independence, as any elementary school civics student could tell you.

Apparently, the audience at CPAC had no idea that Limbaugh had erred, because they fiercely applauded his mistaken attribution.

And that, my friends, gives new meaning to the word "ignorance."

Yeah, you've got us there. It would have been great if someone in the audience had jumped in right there and said, "Hey, Rush, you screwed up there." I mean, it's not like Obama has never ever made such a trivial mistake about this country, right? Right?

I mean, it's not like you're supposed to learn how many states we have by the time you're in grade school, right? Much less when you're a Senator who's running for President of however many states we may have. 

After all, it's pretty easy to get confused.  Really, who among us can keep track of that sort of thing?
