Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble…

I’m trying to think how this picture could be snarkily enhanced through photo-shop or some such editing software but it’s really perfect as is.

Pulled right off  The Nancita’s website home page. She should really be more careful of the image she is projecting. Wouldn’t want people to get the wrong idea.

DEATH PANEL MOTEL…In 3-(D)CA, 8th District

I came across what appears to be a secretly taped film of Nancy Pelosi hawking the health care bill behind closed doors in the House chambers.

Us stoopid Conservative’s have a real hard time seeing what Obama, Reid, and Pelosi think we should see in this bill, so be sure and wear your government approved and tax payer supported 3-(D) glasses while viewing, or you will see everything in…one and a half (D)…like those evil Tea-Bagger’s.

Laugh and the world will laugh with you…

In light of this short comment by Jonah Goldberg at the corner via instapundit (caution, link whoring in progress… please watch your step), I thought I would repost something from a few months ago. At the time, I assumed that anger would follow the laughter. On further reflection, laughter, and only laughter, is the best medicine.

Is it just me or are people starting to laugh at the claims made by Obama and the Dems, that in order to save our economy we must spend wheel barrow loads of borrowed money to adopt every pet leftist project to come down the pike in the last forty years. From the by now obviously mis-named “stimulus” package to the recent reticence of the Dems to follow their fearless leader into the neverland of socialized medicine, more and more people are starting to notice, and instead of getting upset they are shaking their heads and laughing derisively, realizing that again they have been had by a smooth talking pol.

It has been my experience that leaders can overcome many things in the course of their tenure. Laughter of the sort I’m starting to hear from independents and conservative democrat friends who cautiously supported Obama in the hope that he would bridge the differences between conservatives and liberals and usher in a new bi-partisan politics is not one of them however. This sort of self deprecating sour humor, the ” I can’t believe they screwed me again” attitude that I’m seeing will quickly enough turn to disgust and then anger. I would feel better about this phenomenon if I thought that the Republican party was in any position to take advantage of this so far small but growing populist backlash, but they are generally as corrupt as the party currently in power.

They say that power abhors a vacuum and will rush to fill it. If this backlash of center left and center right represents any significant amount of people then it will represent power. The run up to the 2010 midterms should be interesting indeed.

Personally, I Blame Bush

From SOTU:

“As we take the fight to al Qaeda, we are responsibly leaving Iraq to its people. As a candidate, I promised that I would end this war, and that is what I am doing as president. We will have all of our combat troops out of Iraq by the end of this August. We will support the Iraqi government as they hold elections, and continue to partner with the Iraqi people to promote regional peace and prosperity. But make no mistake: this war is ending, and all of our troops are coming home.”

Is there anything more rodent like than taking credit for another’s accomplishments? OK… so a weasel is not technically a rodent, but vermin is as vermin does.

My Sixth Grade Science Project: By Albert Gore Jr.

 

Interesting project Junior. Perhaps you should concentrate your academic efforts to the Drama Dept. from here on out.

In this post at American Thinker, Andrew Thomas presents the theory of anthropogenic global warming as a sixth grade science fair project. As anyone who has been following the revelations regarding comically inadequate computer codes used to model “climate change”, manufactured and missing data at the IPCC, NASA, NOAA , and most recently outright fraud by the “scientists” pushing this theory, it should come as no surprise that young Albert’s project was not only presented with a failing grade, but with the realization that some people by their nature are just not suited to the serious realm of the hard sciences and that perhaps their true talent lies elsewhere.

Cheer up Albert. There is nothing wrong with the drama department. Acting is a perfectly honorable, though somewhat silly I must confess, profession for a man of your breeding and background. I know your father wanted you to be President but at some point you must follow your bliss and become what destiny has determined is your calling.

Chicks dig drama majors and who knows, there may even be an Academy Award in your future.

The Art of Salesmanship.

When new consumer protection laws ran guys like this out of business in the 70’s they didn’t go away, they simply learned how to lie more effectively and went into politics.

NSFW language but nobody’s got a job these days so WTF.

All I have to say is,

“For the first time in my life, (well…ok, in a year or so) I am proud of my country”.
