Narcissistic hubris, or what?
Pad that résumé Nancy! Meaningless bullshit tripe all of it, but she is so full of herself she can’t even just show up and thank the DNC for trying to resurrect her corpse after the pasting she caused the donkeys to take in the last election. Come to think of it, this attitude is standard with the democrat leadership right now, starting at the top: a bunch of whiney pissants, full of themselves, with little good accomplished or to be accomplished, that think their destructive actions have done good. Pfeh to the lot of them.

AOL management pisses away another large stack of cash.
This time the idiots are paying something around $315 million for Huffington Post of all things. Air America here we come!
Guess many AOL investors figured out this lefty politically motivated move to keep another lefty site bleeding red from going under isn’t worth the risk and showed that. I am glad I don’t own AOL shares. If you do, you might want to shed them too. Maybe The Huff Post will start streaming pr0n for AOl in teh future. That’s where the big bucks are.
Update: Who knows? Maybe they are intending to be “good corporate citizens, like Obama wants every company to be, instead of serving the interests of their shareholders. Hey Muirgy! Look! The marxist/statist/elitist twit thinks corporations are evil if they don’t give away their profits just like you do.

Free Wesley Snipes!
While Rangel is still free and faces new ethic violation charges, poor Wesley Snipes is being told to stock up on soap-on-a-rope. At least Sinpes was badass in those Blade movies. What the hell has Rangel done for anyone other than bore people to death on C-SPAN?

Oh, come on:
What a bunch of self-important twerps. Here’s a better idea. How about we raise $2 million to make these fuckers shut up for good? I’d contribute.

You Want to Make an Omelet, You Have to Break Some Eggs
It’s getting pretty obvious, based on Hal’s recent posts alone, that as the elections are drawing closer, the Democrats are acting increasingly desperate, becoming more scattershot than Dick Cheney during hunting season. Whether it’s a $50 billion “infrastructure” plan (which won’t do anything more substantive than jack up the value of Warren Buffet’s railroad stock), calling Americans a bunch of spoiled brats (way to make friends and influence people, Eugene!), or touting a “small business tax break,” the administration is doing anything and everything it can to try and not do a 180-degree impression of the shitkicking they gave to Republicans in 2006.
The latest evidence of this desperation? Paul Krugman’s Labor Day op-ed, in which he makes this truly startling observation:
The miracle of the 1940s? You mean a World War that killed millions of people, and set the stage for even more global carnage in the post-colonial Third World? And while we’re on the subject of the war, Krugman goes on to make this claim:
Now, Krugman was born in 1953, but surely he had at least one of his relatives talk about the massive consumer rationing that took place during the war--everything from gasoline to sugar to tires. It’s absolutely stunning that in one breath, Krugman touts the “miracle” of a World War, yet completely ignores the fact that a big reason consumer spending went UP so much after the 1947-48 recession was because people had been forced to scrimp and save by the government for four years. When the returning veterans finally settled back into the workforce (and their wives and girlfriends left it), people had large stores of money that they were waiting to spend.
In other words, a four-year austerity program contributed to a 20+ year economic boom, which lasted all the way up until the Middle East choked off our supplies of cheap oil.
Regardless of the economics in question, it’s downright sociopathic that Krugman is using the most violent conflict in human history as a justification for increasing government spending, and shows how amoral some of these people are when it looks like they are about to be thrown out of power.

I have a different question than all the others are asking…
If you missed it, the usual suspects in the MSM are all abuzz about some jerk-off by the name of David Weigel, a supposed correspondent hired at the WaPo to cover conservatives, that got dismissed from the after trying to prove his liberal bonafides on some “Journolist” – a secret internet group hosted online were a bunch of collectivist masquerading as a journalist get together to decide what’s news and what’s not in order to help the progressive agenda – by attacking Matt Drudge and the Drudge report. Weigel, which was hired by the WaPo to cover all things conservative, said these real nasty things in order to appease the 400 or so rabid libs that pass themselves off as journalists on that secret list, in order to make them understand he was one of them. Maybe he wasn’t getting the respect he felt he deserved from them because they believed or suspected him of being a conservative for occasionally giving conservative causes and topics what the losers on this list felt was unjust coverage (a.k.a neutral coverage). Forget the questions why a newspaper that supposedly is unbiased would need one of those conservative coverage guys. I mean, do they have correspondents tasked with covering liberals? Yeah, sure. Anyway, this guy was secretly outted by someone on the list, and the WaPo hoping to save face and make the story go away fired him.
Have no doubt that what we had here was some guy that at best pretended to be neutral to conservatives & their causes was covering them. So the leftists in the MSM, now that it is obvious one of their own is under fire, are defending Weigel and disagreeing with his dismissal at the WaPo. Too harsh, or some such drivel. The Kos-nutjobs are even acting like this guy was railroaded in an illegal way. How evil that some lefty turned on another lefty! Forget the questions about the justice of his dismissal, if this guy’s rights were violated, if he was set up or not, or if this was fair or not. These are all beside the point, as well, and of no serious consequence to the real issue at hand. They are all bull to distract us, and all these questions are flying around about the story, are being asked except the one I and everyone of us should be most interested in: there is a secret meeting place where those tasked with providing us the news meet to rig the news to favor progressive causes? W-T-F????
Is it that we have become so used to the bias in the media that nobody but me freaks out when people nonchalantly skip over the fact that the news is skewed to favor the left, and hence one political party, and that these people meet in secret to set strategy, drive the news, and push a disgusting ideological agenda? This is scary stuff. Does anyone doubt that if this had been done by conservatives that we would have the left screaming about a fifth column and demanding an investigation by the DOJ? Do you hear the accusations of the right manipulating the news and people for their advantage? And yet, nary a peep on the fact that the left has just such a list of people that are supposed to be responsible journalists tasked to do just that: manipulate the news to favor the left and their causes. Again, W-T-F???

5 reasons why Bret Michaels has to pull through
For those who have a thing called a “life” and may not keep up with the latest celebrity goings-on, Bret Michaels is gravely ill. He had acute appendicitis the other day, came through the surgery, but had to be rushed to the hospital due to a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage - bleeding at the base of the brain stem.
Some of you know...we have a personal connection to the man, Donna and her friends followed them on tour back in the day and made friends with the band, and of course I savaged the shit out of two years of that God-forsaken Rock of Love show. And all his douchiness aside, I’m still a Poison fan. If you cut me, I bleed, among other things, neon green. And so, I have compiled a list of 5 reasons why Bret has to make it:
5. Every group deserves a spokesperson - even douchebags
4. Spray-painted straw cowboy hats. That’s right. I said it. Spray-painted straw cowboy hats. With writing on them. Who the fuck else is gonna rock that look?
3. Paris Hilton and Lady GaGa can’t keep the Los Angeles hair extension industry alive by themselves!
2. VH1 won’t have anything to air anymore, they’ll just have to shut the doors. Especially since Flava Flav is about two weeks from a crack overdose.
1. And the number one reason why Bret Michaels has to survive this health scare: Those god-damned Ed Hardy shirts aren’t gonna sell themselves. That shit is an industry now, and the American economy just can’t take the hit. Besides, folks going to Wal-Mart gotta have something to wear besides Juicy Couture and Miley Cyrus shit.

HUH! Take that Kumar…
That’s like what that little dwarf told him after stabbing him in that spoof of the Narnia movie! They always say that a conservative is someone that has had sense beaten into them by the real world. Looks like Kumar, who was working for Obama in DC, just got his dose of the real world. Not saying he might or might not come to his senses, but I wonder if he is wondering why the Unicorn ridding Obama didn’t come to save him. Maybe Bush sent them to get him for making fun of him in that funny movie about Guantanamo. Hey Kumar: how did that cockmeat sandwich taste? I am looking forward to the next Harold and Kumar flik. While this stuff is rife with stupid leftists stuff it makes for good laughs.

Matt Damon ‘s Babysitter Meets His Maker
If there is one historian who has epitomized the Marxist bent of the American university, and the humanities in particular, it’s Howard Zinn, who kicked the bucket today.
I’m certainly not going to weep over his passing. As a historian, the man was terrible: his works are prime examples of fallacious logic, Marxist hypocrisy, and contradictory, self-centered agit-prop.
Having read this and few of Zinn’s other works, it’s pretty clear that the only reason he became as huge as he did is because he rubbed all the sections of the id that make leftists swoon, primarily the “the United States, and white people in particular, are responsible for everything bad that’s ever happened in the history of the universe” nub. That he’s being promoted as an intellectual rebel is particularly humorous, because there’s absolutely nothing being taught or studied in the field of history now, or over the past 40-50 years, that differentiates his work from any other--the Academic Holy Trinity of Class, Gender, and Ethnicity is so common that history as a discipline has pretty much stagnated. There’s only so many types of subjects entitled “A ______ of Her Own” before redundancy begins to set in. By contrast, Paul Johnson’s A History of the American People stands out precisely because it doesn’t follow this boilerplate, and as much as I like to rag on journalists, some of them are writing sharp popular histories, such as G. J. Meyer’s A World Undone: The Story of the Great War, 1914 to 1918.
Dennis the Peasant put it best:
Maybe someone can spray-paint that on his tombstone.

Arenas Get Your Gun
The latest employment numbers have been discussed and analyzed ad nauseum today, so I’m not going to go beyond what is obvious--we are still deep in the shit, and aren’t coming out any time soon. I may post a collection of links that explain this over the weekend.
Instead, I want to link to an article that Jason Whitlock wrote about the Gilbert Arenas situation. Whitlock writes:
I don’t disagree with the last statement. While many players in the NBA take their jobs very seriously, there’s also plenty of players who haven’t matured emotionally past that AAU stage in high school. To be somewhat fair, the “baby mama” attitude goes back decades, snaring superstars such as Julius Erving, Karl Malone, and The Sperminator himself, Shawn Kemp.
I’m not sure where Whitlock gets the idea that the NBA is promoting itself as a family-oriented business, though. Stern’s most brilliant business manuever was taking the Faustian bargain that encouraging the hip-hop “street ball” culture of the ghettos to come to the NBA would result in increased interest and fan devotion has paid off in spades. And while it’s made a lot of people in the NBA fabulously wealthy, and provided us with some incredible displays of talent and athleticism, the other side of that is that when you allow an environment that gives a wink and a nod to gangster culture to develop, it’s hardly surprising that many players would continue to emulate the worst aspects of the street, especially if they came into riches so soon after high school. Why bother cleaning up your act when you’ve been coddled as a superstar your whole life for showing your ass in public?
Whitlock goes on to suggest the following:
While the idea is interesting, I think Whitlock is missing the forest for the trees here. I have no problem if the NBA decided to set the age limit to 21--it’s a private organization, can set its own rules about hiring criteria as long as it doesn’t violate the equal protection measure clause, and players can always try to get a European or Latin American team to hire them if they want to play early professionally. But I don’t think it’s going to solve the problem; it might help somewhat, but only a fundmental change in the sport’s culture will accomplish what Whitlock wants to see.
There’s anothe issue to consider as well. Arenas may have shown the gun as a joke, but the other player involved, Javaris Crittenton, is now reported to have actually locked and loaded his own gun that he had brought to the arena. Arenas was suspended indefinitely, and his guns weren’t loaded; if Crittenton actually loaded his gun, what sort of punishment should he get?

The Obligatory Polanski Post
I’ll admit that I was once sympathetic to Roman Polanski. That sympathy lasted from the time that I heard something vague about a crime until I the time I read the details of what he had actually done.
I have to wonder if the shitwits signing a petition against his extradition are in the same zone of ignorance I was in during 0.35 seconds it took for Google to find the details. As my favorite movie critic—James Berardinelli—notes:
Read the whole thing.
I have never seen anything as tone-deaf as the defense of Polanski. Even feminists are sticking up for him.
Look. You can think Polanski is a brilliant director. That changes nothing. You can argue the legal technicalities or ask “why now?” or point out that the victim doesn’t want him extradited. I think those points are irrelevant but they are at least arguments.
But to sit here and defend his actions; to claim that it shouldn’t matter because he’s some kind of film genius (I’m sorry; did you guys see Bitter Moon?); to trivialize the drugging and rape of 13-year-old is to encapsulate everything every anti-Hollywood nutter has ever said. It is to say that the law doesn’t apply to famous people.
To their credit, most on the Left are not buying this load of garbage (and his biggest defender is the normally brilliant Anne Applebaum, who needs her head pulled out of her ass at once). Here’s a round-up from Ta-Nehisi, who also points out that there are far greater injustices to be fought right now, including the Willingham case. Even Sean Penn and Tim Robbins have kept their distance.
When Spicoli won’t bite on your petition, you may have a problem.

Lunatics running the asylum?
Check this out. You can’t make this shit up. Biden says:
But then Obama says:
What’s this kind of diplomacy called? Bush was labeled a cowboy for talking straight and though. I bet the usual leftists and the MSM will call this wishy-washy stuff “Ivy League” diplomacy. The hallmark of genius! A blessing and breath of fresh air compared to what we had before! It gets even funnier though.
Check this out! At 4:15 AM our time Obama said this:
At 7:45 AM our time, just some 3 1/2 hours later, this happened:
Another contradiction. This seems the be SOP with these kids. Now I know that Obama is a true believer, and the article explains a lot of the terribly idiotic decisions being made and actions taken - damaging both to our economy, our security, and to our future – by the idiots in charge. Can you imagine how Bush, or any non democrat for that matter, would have been treated if they were pulling these kinds of stunts?
For Christ’s sake this lightweight, which keeps telling the Russians they want to “reset” relationships, f*cks up and calls Putin the Russian President - it’s Medvedev for those that are ill informed, and despite the general held belief that Putin is the puppet master – adding another blunder to the chain of idiotic and offensive mistakes made by this diplomatic genius core. Again: how would Bush have been treated had he or his people made such a terrible mistake? Have no doubt that the Russians think he is both weak and stupid. Any optimism is because they see their country gaining big at the expense of America.
And these gaffes like this are not the occasional exception either: they are the norm with these people. After Biden admits that they have no clue what they are doing we are now being told they want to pass another stimulus bill, throwing likely another $1 trillion into a bottomless pit. Wasn’t one patronage bill that funneled hundreds of billions of tax payer money to democrat lobbyists, operatives, organizations, and past and future donors enough? How greedy can these crooks be?
We are getting told that America finally has risen and now has experienced and smart leadership, but to me it looks like all we have are a bunch of immature, egocentric children that are unable to even realize they are way out of their element. Thank god so many are distracted, or they might get in trouble.

Stewart Bombs Out
Generally, I like Jon Stewart and the Daily Show. But last night, he said something so dumb, my jaw dropped. It’s about five minutes into this clip.
He says that Harry Truman was a war criminal for dropping the A-bomb on Japan. According to Stewart, we should have dropped one off the shore of Japan to demonstrate it.
Just to explain my bias: I am loathe to apply retroactive judgement to historical decisions. I force myself to remember that hindsight is 20/20 and that people usually don’t make bad decisions because they’re evil or stupid. They often don’t have complete information. In this case, let’s punt for the moment on the wisdom of the A-bomb. Truman had no way of knowing about long-term radiological effects. The devastation did not seem particularly worse than what fire-bombing had inflicted on Tokyo. We were in a brutal war that had dragged out for four years. Truman knew an invading army would face thousands of kamikaze planes and millions of armed civilians. It’s possible to argue that Truman did the wrong thing. But it’s not possible to say it was an indefensible decision. And war criminal? Truman didn’t vaporize two cities because he hated Japanese people. He did it because he thought it would end the war. And, while there’s controversy aplenty, there are solid reasons to believe that the bombing did end the war.
Moreover, Stewart is also specifically ignorant about the situation. Jon, we only had two bombs. Would Japan have surrendered after an offshore test? Are you willing to expend half your nuclear arsenal trying out that theory? There’s very good reason to doubt they would have surrendered even after Hiroshima.
People are praising Stewart for the interview in general, but I wasn’t terribly impressed—I’m usually not when he tries to play serious pundit. He muddles the arguments against torture and can’t really respond to much of what Cliff May is saying. I tuned out before I could hear if Stewart pointed out that MacArthur was insistent on humane treatment of Japanese prisoners—even after the horrors of Bataan.
Stewart is a funny guy and a good talk show host. He’s good at satire and getting in the occasional good point. But put him in a serious debate and he’s out of his element, Donnie.

The Spector Of Guilt
In case you missed it, Phil Spector is going away for a while.
Spector’s influence on rock and roll cannot be denied. It also cannot be denied that he is a seriously disturbed individual, with a pattern of behavior that goes back several decades. They say that the line between genius and madness is a thin one. Spector appears not only to have crossed it, but taken a swan dive to the other side.

Axis Of Evildoers
Frazier offers his opinion on the stimulus:
You know, he seemed much more reasonable as Hank McCoy. I guess Sideshow Bob is hoping that people still yearn for a Republican who will rule them like a king.
