Dealing With The Issues Regular Americans Care About

Obama to call for 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' repeal, adviser says -

Just how tone deaf is the Obama Administration? I mean, I understand shoring up the base but right now he's on the ropes, the economy is in the tank... Is this really the time to be talking about buggery in the trenches during the State of the Union? Do they really think that's a key issue right now?

Obama aims to ax moon mission -

Not because it's easy, but because it is hard.

Does This Mean...

Landrieu-gate - Laura Rozen -

Obamacare Now!

After hearing Barry Manilow covering a Rick Astley song I need an ear transplant.

No... Really?

Edwards admits he fathered videographer's child - Yahoo! News

I guess the Shyster finally gave up on his dream of being Attorney General. Although, having a child out of wedlock is no impediment to employment in this administration.

Why Is This Happening?

Why is Jeff Zucker taking the Charlie Rose's airwaves right now? Does that make any sense at all while the negotiations with Conan are still ongoing? It only does if the pointy-headed, cueball moron is trying desperately to save his ass from the scythe that Comcast is going to (please God) swing.

The Old Testament: NC-17

Reading sweet little Bible stories at bedtime to the elder Bloglet tonight.  We decided to talk about how the Children of Israel marched around Jericho for seven days.  On the seventh day they blew their trumpets, the walls came tumbling down and the Israelites were able to go right in.

The End.

Except of course for the part where the Children of Israel slaughtered every living thing in the city...  Men and women...  Cattle and sheep...  Cute little fuzzy bunnies...  Oh!  Yeah!  And all of the children too.

Funny how they always leave those parts out.

I'm kidding but I'm also not kidding.  There is a lot of the Bible that just seems...  Well...  Un-Christian.  We gloss over a lot of that or try to explain it away.  What we're left with though is a loving, merciful God who is occasionally okey dokey just a-ok fine with murdering babies in their cribs.

That is, assuming we take everything literally like my fellow fundies do.  If we assume that when the Bible says God told them to slaughter the fuzzy bunnies and the babes in arms it is actually true rather than a self-serving cover story.  Personally, I don't. 

I am fully prepared to believe that people 3000 years ago were more than willing to do whatever the hell they felt like and then justify it by saying God told them it was okay.  As often as not, we're still doing the same thing.

Larry King Can't Fool Me

God love poor Larry King.

He can talk about the Tweet Suite as much as he likes and I'm still not buying it.  Larry King wouldn't know Twitter from his colostomy bag.

Or We Could Watch Jay Ask Morons Who Washington D.C. Is Named After

A Counterfactual

APNewsBreak: AP sources: Obama to Massachusetts

If George W. Bush had gone to campaign for a Republican candidate in a Senate special election while a disaster of the magnitude of the Haitian earthquake was unfolding right before our eyes... What do you think the response of the opposition party and the media might have been?

Just asking.

Credit Where It's Due

Cheers to CNN for giving wall-to-wall coverage to the Haiti disaster during prime time.

Jeers to Fox News for wasting our time with their usual lineup of opinion shows between 4 and 11 (not counting the Fox Report).

Seriously, we're big fans of Fox News around here, but if you want to consider yourself a news network then you need to focus on a big story like this around the clock.  CNN is doing that, Fox News is not.  I have no idea what MSNBC is doing because I (like most Americans).don't watch it.

The Things You Can Accomplish When You Don't Have a Sex Life

Getting A Little Creepy, Glenn

Is it just me or is anyone else a little creeped out by Glenn Beck's new theme song on the radio?  Sort of Bob Roberts meets cult if you asked me.

And, of course, you didn't.

Conan, His Own Anus Growing Sore, Decides to Give Jeff Zucker a Taste of His Own Medicine

A statement from Conan O'Brien:
People of Earth:
In the last few days, I've been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I've been getting paid to do what I love most and, in a world with real problems, I've been absurdly lucky. That said, I've been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision.
Six years ago, I signed a contract with NBC to take over The Tonight Show in June of 2009. Like a lot of us, I grew up watching Johnny Carson every night and the chance to one day sit in that chair has meant everything to me. I worked long and hard to get that opportunity, passed up far more lucrative offers, and since 2004 I have spent literally hundreds of hours thinking of ways to extend the franchise long into the future. It was my mistaken belief that, like my predecessor, I would have the benefit of some time and, just as important, some degree of ratings support from the prime-time schedule. Building a lasting audience at 11:30 is impossible without both.
But sadly, we were never given that chance. After only seven months, with my Tonight Show in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their long-established late night schedule.
Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35. For 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn't the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy.
So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its destruction. Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the Internet a time slot doesn't matter. But with the Tonight Show, I believe nothing could matter more.
There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work.
Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it's always been that way.

Heck of a job, Zuckie!

The Cookie Crumbles

When Suze Orman says the word cookie it makes me want to pop my own eardrums.

Actually, when she says pretty much anything it makes me want to do that.

Duke Universtiy - Jedi Mind Tricks 101

Power Line - The radical feminist empire strikes back at Duke

Duke, home of the lacrosse "rape" scandal awhile back, has published new sexual misconduct guidelines. More of the usual feminist bullshit for the most part.

Here, however, is the part I like best:

Ada Gregory, director of the Women's Center, argues that "higher IQ males" like those who populate Duke are particularly effective at "manipulation and coercion." Hence their ability to "rape" women without them even realizing it.

Now, leaving aside the fact that one would think there are also "higher IQ" females at Duke who should be smart enough not to get themselves into dangerous situations... I love the idea that a woman could be raped without even knowing it. I mean, if someone has to tell you you were raped then, newsflash, you weren't. If someone has to talk you into thinking you were raped then, newsflash, you weren't.

All of this, like so much Leftist dogma, is aimed at creating victim classes for the purpose of gaining power. You take a girl who had sex and (maybe) regrets it later and you turn her into a rape victim. She is suddenly empowered as are you as her protector.

My Continuing Voyage of Self Discoverry

By nature I am a smartass, but I can stop myself.
If I want to.
Which I usually don't.

My First Cruel Post of 2010

God love him, but it is long past time for Dick Clark to hang it up. That quick shot of him kissing his wife is just getting creepier and creepier every year.
