Comrade Hillary and the Five Year Plan

Clinton outlines plans for rural America - Newsday.com

Deep down in their hearts, every Democrat still believes it's The New Deal. Why on earth does Hillary think we need some sort of Marshall Plan for the hicks in the sticks? Subsidized broadband access? Incentives to get yuppies to settle in the boonies???

Wait, what am I thinking? Why wouldn't a Leftie march us all out of the cities and into the countryside? Worked for Pol Pot, right?

This is just asinine.

An Abortion Is Like a Day At The Mall

Daytona Beach News-Journal Online -- Opinion

Or so says the Daytona Beach News Journal, anyway.

The News Journal is a lousy paper. It always has been. "Fish wrapper" would be a compliment. Editorials like this one just prove the point.

It's one thing to be a Leftist but another to be a frigging idiot. The News Journal seldom passes up the opportunity to be the latter.

In this case, the editors shout into the wind against Congress' recently passed legislation which prohibits the transportation of minors across state lines without parental permission in order to get an abortion.

Let's go straight to the text:

The bill plays on the notion that parents should know about their daughters' decisions and whereabouts. That may be true in most reasonable instances. But the state-line argument is a canard. If parents have a right to know about their children's whereabouts, then Congress could also draft legislation forbidding the transport of underage children across state lines for shopping or to spend the day at an amusement park without parents' knowledge. And legislatures could pass legislation forbidding the same within any given state boundary. Such laws would be absurd. It's not government's role to play nanny.

Oh give me a fucking break! Are you honestly comparing taking my daughter across state lines without my knowledge or permission in order to have an invasive medical procedure with taking her to The Gap???

And the very idea of a Liberal paper decrying the nanny-state is rediculous.

Even with the coupons, you're losing money if you take the Daytona Beach News Journal.

America...

The Hottie Du Jour

I don't know that I've focused on newsbabes enough lately. Well, I did do a Campbell Brown posting, didn't I? Anyway, how about giving one of Fox's foxes her due? Here's the lust-worthy Megyn Kendall:

Now Wait Just One Ahem... Fracking Minute

The following post has been somewhat redacted because the love of money is the root of all evil.

"The movie is a prequel to the original series and is going to focus on a young Captain Kirk, rumored to be played by Matt Damon..."

Breathe. Just breathe. It will be okay. It really will. Just... Keep... Control...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

JJ Abrams you goshdarn meanie, I swear that if you cast Matt Uglybutt Damon as James Tiberius Kirk I will open up such a can of whup-butt that you won't know what happened to you. Why don't you just keep tortuing those freaks on the island and leave Trek alone?!?!?!?!?

Why not have Ben Man-loving Affleck as Spock while you're at it? And how about Halle Barre as Uhura.

Okay, that part might be okay, but Sweet Jesus don't put Matt Damon in the center seat!!! Dear God in Heaven, I think I'm having a frigging heart attack. Why don't you just make Jackie Chan play Sulu???? Yeah, I know, all Chinese people are Asians but not all Asians are Chinese people... Geez, work with me here people!!!

Holy crap I can't fracking believe this? Matt Damon? What the holy heck are you thinking, You Everloving Bit of Excrement? Dear God!!!!

An Open Question For Glenn Beck

You do realize that your CNN Headline News colleague Nancy Grace is clinically insane, don't you?

If Keith Olbermann Made An Idiot Out of Himself...

Would anyone notice?

I'm no great fan of Bill O'Reilly and, quite honestly, I don't give two sharp, short shits for either of them in their little pissing match. Still, it's kind of pathetic to see Olbermann fighting so far above his weight.

Blog posts like this one prove it.

Grandma, Will You Help Me Kill?

Democrats seek changes to abortion bill - Yahoo! News

Sounds like a Lifetime movie starring Tori Spelling doesn't it? No, friends, it's the Democrats' prescription for your teenager.

House Republicans want to take the very reasonable step of making it a crime when an adult takes your teenager across state lines to get an abortion against your will and in violation of state parental notification laws.

Huh... Go figure. Giving Midol to my future teenage daughter when she's on the rag? No go. Taking her across the line to scramble my grandkids? Have at it!

Not so quick though... Democrats want to make an exception for busybody grandparents and damned to everlasting hell clergy who might want to load your little girl in the car and take her off for an afternoon that will really suck.

Ba dum ba!

Sigh... Where to begin?

Let's be real, real clear on this. If you take my as-yet-to-be-born daughter across state lines to have an invasive surgical procedure (oh, and murder my granddaughter) without my permission your collar or your wrinkes aren't going to keep me from killing you.

John Kerry Can Stop The Rain

Kerry knocks Bush on handling of Mideast conflict - 07/23/06 - The Detroit News Online

Yet another of Flippers delusions. Now John Boy believes he would have been able to stop the current unpleasantness between Hezbollah and Israel. Probably true since he would have reined in Israel from defending herself at the first shot fired.

Every Man Has His Price

And $8 is mine...

Epicnicbasket.com is a very interesting site that sells... Wait for it... Picnic baskets! Not just your standard wicker basket with a red-and-white checked cloth but everything you can imagine. There's a variety of packages available and, as you might guess, a variety of prices. I'm not so sure the average guy is going to want this sort of thing but it's a great present for the ladies.

Guys... Buy the basket, fill it up with some good stuff from your local froo-froo gourmet market... You know... Quiche and strawberries and such... The stuff SHE likes and you can stomach... Then pick the spot and surprise her. I have a feeling you won't be disappointed.

Crooks and Liars » Elizabeth Smart puts Grace in her place

Ah... There's nothing like watching a sweet, harp-playing Mormon girl take down a harpie. Uber-shrew Nancy Grace wanted to play up the exploitation factor on former-kidnappee Elizabeth Smart. Iron Lizzie would have none of it and gave Nancy what-for.

People like Nancy Grace just revel in victimology. Talk about it. Share your feelings... Wah wah wah. Girlfriend knows better.

Kudos to Elizabeth Smart! Go to the link to watch the video.

Is That A Puppy In Your Pants...

cbs4.com - Down The Pants, Out The Door With Dognapper

...or are you just happy to see me?

OR...

The Bitch Bit Me Down Below!

OR...

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

OR...

Okay, that's enough... Here's the other part of this though... This is a story about a guy who stole a pure-bred Maltese puppy from a pet store called Precious Puppies in Plantation (FL). He did so by cramming the pooch down his pants (a la Sandy Berger). Thief. Criminal. Nuff said.

Now let's move on to Precious Puppies... First the name... Second, look at the picture at the link. They keep the puppies in green cribs (like baby cribs). Dog... Baby... Dog... Baby... Know the difference. Finally, the store owner seems to have a lack of perspective, to wit:

“A crime like this, a person could get five years. In my opinion, five years is not enough for someone who would do something like this to an animal.”-Store owner Cindy Darrell

Honey, it's a freaking dog. He's a thief, not a kidnapper. The dog will be fine. And if it's not? It's a dog. There are about a billion of them. They don't think, they're cuter rats. Get over it.

Why We Like Campbell Brown


She doesn't try to be sexy-yet-credible-yet-sophisticated like Diane Sawyer.

She doesn't try to be perky-sanctimonous-sexy like Katie Couric

She doesn't try to be pottymouthed-bitchy-haggish like Meredith Viera.

She's not a tard like Ann Curry

She's just Campbell. She's smart, she's fun and she looks and dresses like women you know. And it doesn't hurt that while she's doing a puff piece on Bill and Mrs. Bill Gates in Africa with Bubba she stops at the bedside of a woman dying of AIDS and seems to get genuinely choked up. The woman has a little girl and there is no one to take care of her. Unlike the fake emotion that seems to come from so many, this seemed very genuine, very human.

So, here's to Campbell. Girlfriend, we've always felt that NBC screwed you royally. You kick Meredith's ass!

Clink... Clink...

Here we go again...

What would I do if I won the lottery? I'm not sure if this post is supposed to promote the new TV show Windfall which, I think, is about a group of friends who win the lottery. I haven't watched it. Luke Perry? Don't think so.

Anyway, no I wouldn't dump my wife. I guess it would depend on how much money I won. I mean, contrary to what a lot of people think, a million dollars doesn't make you rich. It makes you pretty darn comfortable. It frees you from having to "worry" about money, but it doesn't mean you can buy four new houses and a pile of bling. Now 100 million? That's a different story.

I suppose this will sound dull/untrue, but I really don't think winning the lottery would change my life all that much. I might buy a new house, I'd probably buy a new car, but I don't think I'd quit my job. Not because I love my job (though I don't hate it by any means). Rather, I don't think I'd want the as-yet-to-be-born MediaBloglet to get the idea that Daddy does nothing for a living. Work, as much as it sucks every morning when the alarm goes off, is a good thing.

Time To Stand With Our Allies

CNN.com - Japan 'won't change NK resolution' - Jul 8, 2006

The Japanese want a vote in the Council. It's time to stop kissing Chinese ass and make them stand and deliver. The Japanese stood with us over Iraq and this is NOT that time to show a lack of gratitude. Japan has lived under the threat of North Korean missiles for years. Japan has suffered from having their citizens kidnapped by the North Koreans.

Let the Chinese veto it if they have the stomach. It will show them for what they are. Don't be shocked when they and the Russians abstain.

A Little Money Before Bedtime

Humor me, folks... Baby needs a new pair of shoes.

As you probably know by now, there's a new website called PayPerPost that is offering to pay Bloggers to write posts about topics. I'll be perfectly honest with you, I have a hard time seeing how this is going to remain financially viable for more than about two months. Now, that being said, it's a great opportunity for as long as it lasts. We'll see if they can make a go of it or if they burn through their startup capital faster than a crack whore with a fresh stash.

Here comes a little more shameless commerce, folks. Now don't worry, this isn't going to turn into a links blog, but I'm curious to see if I will get paid.

Anyhoo... I'm not entirely sure if this site is valuable or not. Maybe that's because I don't have a passport, have never tried to get a passport and am not now thinking about getting a passport. Now, that being said, if you need a passport then you may want to give this site a checkout. Apparently it lets you make a passport photo without paying some Godawful fee at a photo studio or something. Anyway, if you're in the market for such a thing, you might as well check this place out.

An Announcement

Having watched the July 4th edition of The Late Show with David Letterman we can now announce conclusively that Michael Keaton has transitioned from has-been to pathetic loser has-been.

Daily Kos: Olbermann's ratings pass his nemesis

The loons over at Daily Kos are trumpeting the fact that Countdown with Keith Olberman beat The O'Reilly Factor in one demographic on one night for fifteen minutes...

FIFTEEN WHOLE MINUTES!!!

Now, frequent readers know that I wouldn't give you two sharp, short shits for Windbag O'Reilly. That goes for Olberman too. Still, I have to laugh a little at just how dire the times are in Leftyland. I guess when you're well on your way to the ash heap of history you have to enjoy the little things.

In the almost words of Andy Warhol, in the future every liberal will be loved for 15 minutes.

Where's The Ann Coulter Style Outrage????

Ken Lay's Last Evasion

How come when Ann Coulter says something outrageous the entire media universe grinds to a screeching halt but when Henry Allen of the Washington Post does the same there's barely a cricket's chirp?

Oh, right, it's because nobody knows who the hell Henry Allen is. Silly me.

Seriously though, why is it okay for Henry Allen to wish that Ken Lay had lived long enough to be someone's anal bitch in Federal lockup?

You know, Henry, I'll take a crook over a scrub any day of the week. We're not talking about Adolf Hitler. I'll be honest, I didn't give a crap about Enron so I didn't follow the story, but as bad as fraud may be it doesn't justify the kind of wistful, what-might-have-been schadenfreude that Mr. Classy engages in here.

Rest in peace, Kenny Boy.

Welcome Back, Dan! For Now.

We here at The MediaBlog are not bound be a pedantic requirement for consistency. One second we can be calling for Dan Rather's head over Memogate and the next we can be calling for Miss Julie to put Les Moonves over her knee because he threw crazy old Dan out without so much as a gold watch.

Perhaps that's why we were pleased to see our favorite albino, Anderson Cooper, call on Uncle Dan for his eyewitness account of life behind the Bamboo Curtain in North Korea.

You know, for the most part we here at The MediaBlog don't hate Dan. If anything, we feel pity for him as a man who went off the tracks somewhere along the way. That being said, the man has lived a lot and seen a lot. The idea that CBS would throw him over quite so unceremoniously just so they could bring in Ms. Perky is just a little unseemly.

Anyway, kudos to Anderson Cooper for showing a little respect.

God Save Us From the Purists

Let's be honest here. Most of the Blogosphere ain't Shakespeare. Or, for that matter, Edward R. Murrow. There's a lot of crap out there (present company no exception). Blogging is a hobby, maybe a sideline... It isn't a sacred trust. I guess that's why I find some of the furor over PayPerPost a little annoying.

Full disclosure... This is a paid post. So was my earlier one about the Table Trays. We'll see if I get paid for them.

Now, with that out of the way, I'll make my point. If you're looking around the blogosphere and taking everything you see as the Gospel, unbiased, unvarnished truth then you really do need to start reading books. Do you believe all the email you get? If so, where is your cut of all that Nigerian money? No, friends, let the buyer (or reader) beware. Nothing I or anyone else say should be taken as anything more than a statement of opinion. Nor should you, I or anyone else assume that we understand the motives of those we read.

Anyway, as I said, there is a lot of chatter about PayPerPost on various websites. TechCrunch, for example. To read it, you would think that the folks at PayPerPost were about to deflower your sister. I just don't have much patience with those who think they're too good for commerce or profit. Go watch PBS, friend. Let the rest of us make a buck here and there. For myself, I don't feel at all cheapened.

Just because you're making a buck doesn't mean you're a whore.

On Second Thought

When Liza Minelli is part of your 4th of July celebrations I start thinking that maybe this whole "America" thing was a bad idea after all.

Oh, and a big MediaBlog wet kiss to Kim Jong-il for his big time fireworks display today. And to think we thought he was a psycho who hated us!

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, - That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. - Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred. to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. - And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

And Now For Some Shameless Commerce


Look, I've got a baby on the way. She needs to eat. Spare me your Communist, anti-commercial purity. If The Man wants to pay me to be a shill then, by God, I'm going to be the best shill I can be...

Which brings me to the Table Mate. The wife and I enjoy eating on the sofa in front of the TV. We usually use these lap trays. They work well enough, to be honest, but this little gadget seems like it might work just a bit better. It looks like it folds up nicely. And, if nothing else, it isn't sitting on your lap the whole time. That's gotta be an improvement, am I right? Apparently it's a little cheaper than what you see on TV and you don't have to wait quite so long to get it. Hmm... Seems like a winner to me.

Here's where you go to pick one of these babies up:

You Tell Them Kiddo!

cbs13.com - Little Mr. Apricot Flips Off Crowd, Loses Title

Not that I'm in favor of vulgar gestures from toddlers, mind you... That being said, this kid probably saved himself from a life of torment and latent homosexuality by throwing down his sash and shooting a bird at the... I'm not making this up... Apricot Board.

Can you imagine the living hell that would follow you around if you were known as a former "Little Mr. Apricot"? This kid dodged a bullet, there's no way around it.

Shoutout to Big Momma Apricot... Girlfriend, what the hell were you thinking??? Did you really want your son to go through life as a former "Little Mr. Apricot"? Thank whatever pig gods you worship that the kid decided to use a little sign language.

Little Mr. Apricot???? Jesus H. Christ! WTF were you thinking????

BREITBART.COM - US stars align in anti-Iraq war hunger strike

Moonbat Cindy Sheehan plans to go on a hunger strike to demand... Demand!!! The immediate return of our troops from Iraq.

Various Hollywood types plan to join her a in "rolling" hunger strike AKA dieting during which they will each fast for a day and then pass the empty plate to the next self-important actor/director/best boy/key grip.

Fellow bloggers, join with me to support the war. Take the Hungry Blogger's pledge today:

I, _________, pledge to eat a little more each day in honor of the freedom from want which is guaranteed in part by our brave men and women in uniform. By eating a little extra each day, I will balance out Moonbat Sheehan, Has Been Surandon and not-quite-as-crazy-as-Harry-Belafonte-but-well-on-his-way Danny Glover. By enjoying dessert, an appetizer or maybe just a Snickers bar on the way home from work I will show my love of country.

Go on. Do it for America.

Look! Up in the Sky!

Superman Returns (2006)

It works. By God it really does work. The plot is straight out of the first Superman movie and the film drags a little in the middle, but it's a great ride. The young fellow playing the Man o'Steel works as does Kevin Spacey as Lex. Surprisingly enough, Parker Posey even works as Lex's gun moll.

The only weak spot is Kate Bosworth as a very dull, very bland, very boring Lois Lane.
