February 2011

Once again, America’s intellectually superior liberals, the same people who laud so-called art like “Piss Christ” and rave about the genius of Robert Mapplethorpe’s “Self Portrait with Whip Up Ass,” are demonstrating their hypocrisy. Now they’re horrified by a one hundred year old “sexist” statue in Queens, New York.

queens statue sexist

Don't look now, but if this statue is sexist, so is Queens, the name of the borough in which it's located

The New York Daily News reports the stupidity:

A controversial Queens statue, featured as an “Eyesore Next Door” in the Daily News, should be sold through an online classifieds site, according to a group of elected officials.

U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner said the city should ditch the statue, “Triumph of Civic Virtue,” because it is “sexist.”

Some community leaders have tried for years to get the city to pay for the restoration of the decaying statue.

Weiner and City Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras (D-Jackson Heights) — who want to sell the statue on craigslist to raise funds — said it is offensive because it depicts a nude man stepping on two women.

The statue, crafted more than 100 years ago, is supposed to depict civic virtue, triumphant over the twin sirens of vice and corruption

Aha! No wonder the liberals are hate this statue. It symbolizes triumph over corruption and they see that as a personal attack.

It’s a damn good thing we have the Liberal Racism Army out there defining, alphabetizing and categorizing everything that now qualifies as racism, because it would be absolutely impossible to keep track of them all otherwise.

Silly us. We thought it was an accepted fact that Barack Obama and the Democrat Party are in the pocket of the labor unions. But, no, it turns out that the mere mention of that corrupt relationship is now racist, too. MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell said so.

“The Republican party is saying that the president of the United States has bosses, that the union bosses this president around, the unions boss him around. Does that sound to you like they are consciously or subconsciously deliver the racist message that of course, of course a black man can’t be the real boss.”

Yes, of course, Lawrence, it’s racism. But then, what isn’t?

Maybe we exaggerated the highly intelligent part. And maybe we stretched the truth when called it a sophisticated discussion.

In reality, this short video is an angry, ignorant union thug screaming at the top of his lungs about those stupid, damn Tea Partiers.

But it is amusing to see someone this ignorant calling someone else ignorant.

Is it Muammar or is it Michael?

by editor on February 28, 2011

As you may have noticed, Muammar Gaddafi has been in the news lately. A lot. And every time he shows up in public he’s wearing another outrageous outfit.

Who does this guy remind us of, we wondered to ourselves. Who? And then it hit us.

Michael Jackson.

Yes, the Dictator of Libya dresses just like the King of Pop. To put it another way, Colonel Gaddafi is Captain Eo. On top of that, they both have the same general build, the same stringy black hair, and somewhere in the middle of Michael’s color change, they had the same complexion. But what’s crazy is that they have the same sense of fashion. If that’s what it can be called.

So take our little test. Here are twelve photos – some of Muammar, some of Michael. We’ve blurred the faces and any other details that would give you a clue as to which is which.

See how many you can correctly identify based on their choice of clothing.

Photo #1: Is it Muammar or Michael?

Big news: Now you can win a chance to meet Obama

by editor on February 28, 2011

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, step right up and you could win. Just hand over five smackers and you could win a trip to Boston, a rubber chicken dinner and a photo of yourself with President Obama. All courtesy of the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee.


Imagine yourself standing there instead of Joe Biden

We know it’s true because we got this email from the DCCC:

Just wanted to make sure you saw Leader Pelosi’s message about your chance to meet President Obama on March 8th.

If you’re chosen as our lucky winner, not only will you get the chance to meet the President, but you’ll get to have your picture taken with him too.

Contribute $5 or more today and you will be automatically entered for a chance to win a trip to Boston (airfare and hotel included). If you win, you and a friend will attend a dinner with President Obama on March 8th and get your picture taken with him.

Help us show continued grassroots strength for President Obama’s agenda. If you’re our lucky winner, you’ll get to meet the President and get your picture taken with him to keep for all time.


Robby Mook
DCCC Executive Director

It ain’t exactly Super Lotto or the Readers Clearinghouse Sweepstake, but on the other hand, it’ll only set you back five dollars. Seriously, just five dollars? That’s all the Democrats think it’s worth for a chance to meet the most powerful man in the world after Simon Cowell?

If you’re not in a hurry to meet Obama, hold on. We’re pretty sure the tickets will only be $2 by this time next year.

Al Gore loves ethanol. In fact, on the Al Gore Love-O-Meter, ethanol ranks just ahead of pork ribs and happy ending massages. And while Bill Clinton is equally fond of both guilty pleasures, he has finally figured out that diverting corn to ethanol reduces the amount of corn available for food and drives up prices.

So we’re pretty confident that Gore is not happy with Clinton’s comments. Not happy at all.

al gore

Al Gore tries to get a little chunk of corn-fed pork rib from between his front teeth

The Associated Press has details of Clinton’s corny comments:

Former President Bill Clinton is warning farmers not to use so much corn for ethanol fuel that it raises food prices and causes riots in other countries.

Clinton told farmers and Agriculture Department employees that he believes producing biofuels such as corn-based ethanol is important for reducing U.S. dependence on foreign oil. But he says farmers also should look beyond domestic production and consider the needs of developing countries.

Clinton spoke Thursday at the department’s annual Agricultural Outlook Forum. His foundation has worked to develop agribusiness in African countries such as Malawi and Rwanda.

Al Gore just called to correct this story. He said he likes pork ribs much more than ethanol.

But…but…but how could that be? There’s a war going on in Afghanistan and the good people living along the Mexican border lead peaceful, Mayberry-ish lives. At least that’s what we thought Janet Napolitano said.


People in Ciudad Juarez dream of living in a nice, peaceful place like Afghanistan

CNSNews has the stunning details:

There were 3,111 civilians murdered in the city of Juarez in 2010 and 2,421 in the entire country of Afghanistan.

On a per capita basis, a civilian was 30 times more likely to be murdered last year in Juarez, where there are 1,328,017 inhabitants according to Mexico’s 2010 census, than in Afghanistan, where there are 29,121,286 people according to the CIA World Factbook.

The number of civilians killed in Afghanistan was compiled by the Congressional Research Service and published in a CRS report released on Feb. 3. The number of civilians killed in Juarez was compiled by Molly Molloy, a research librarian at New Mexico State University who maintains a count of murders Juarez and published it on the Frontera List Web site. Molloy’s work on civilian murders in Juarez was also referenced in a recent CRS report on Mexican drug cartels.

Much of the violence in Juárez is sparked by drug trafficking organizations battling over one of the major smuggling corridors into the United States.

Murder? Drugs? Trafficking? Smuggling? Corridors into the United States?

Hah! We laugh at such nonsense. Surely, if any of this was true, Janet Napolitano would have long ago rushed troops to the border.

You can’t make this stuff up. In the words of ghambrick, who tipped us to this story, “She just got an award in Georgia for suffering through the ordeal of her USDA firing. From a Republican state senator. I’m not kidding.”


Shirley Sherrod has suffered, damn it, and deserves an award

The Atlanta Journal Constitution has the details:

Shirley Sherrod, who lost her federal job last year in a mistaken furor over supposed racism, was honored Tuesday in Atlanta.

State Sen. Robert Brown, R-Macon, gave Sherrod the Hosie Miller Courage Award. The new award was named in honor of Sherrod’s father, who was a farmer and community leader in Georgia’s Baker County.

“In making this award to Shirley Sherrod for her display of courage, integrity and commitment to justice during the ordeal she endured at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and throughout her life’s work, a very high bar is established for future awards,” Brown said.

Sherrod was forced from her job after a conservative blogger posted a video of part of a talk she gave telling a story about how, years ago, she was offended by a white farmer’s attitude when he asked her to help him avoid losing his farm. She said she considered not helping him. The video left out the rest of her speech, in which she said she overcame her own emotions to help the man. She was accused of racism before the full story came out. She is suing the blogger.

In the spirit of bipartisanship, we’d also like to honor Shirley Sherrod.

Shirley, may you get everything you deserve.

(And feel free to interpret that any way you want.)

Watch how the United Nations Human Rights Council lauded Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi just last year. ‘Cause, you know, no one suspected way back then that he was a brutal dictator.

It’s worth three and a half minutes of your life to see another demonstration of just how corrupt the United Nations has become.

Like our tag line says, if we didn’t laugh, we’d cry.

Let’s face it. Whether you like Barack Obama or not he is a many of many firsts. He’s the first US President to be only half white. He’s the first US President to bow to foreign kings, emperors, dictators. He’s the first US President to actually seems to want America to fail.

And while he might not be the first world leader to have a Twitter page, he may be the first one to need a professional editor to proofread it.


Chicago Now has all the twit that’s fit to print:

So, not only has Obama turned a deaf ear to the dozens getting killed in Libya by their own mad dictator, but when the White House Twitter feed finally did decide to discuss the country it spelled the name of the place incorrectly.

Seriously, White House? “Lybia”? Sounds like something that the Bush Administration would be destroyed over by the left-sold media. So, any chances that the media will make fun of Barack “the world traveller” Obama over this?

Yeah, don’t hold your breath waiting for the smarter-than-thou left-media pundit class to start lambasting Obama any time soon.

After first reading this story we assumed it could have been much worse for the President. One more errant keystroke could easily have replaced the “y” in “Lybia” with an “a”.

But after a little careful consideration we realized just how unlikely that additional error would have been.

As Michelle would no doubt tell you, the only thing that interests Barack less than Libya is labia.

It’s not just partisan Republicans who’ve noticed Chris Matthews unhealthy obsession with Democrat presidents. Even the Huffington Post finds something distinctly odd about Matthews’ much-hyped Bill Clinton special.


Whatever gets you off, Chris. It's really none of our business.

But let’s just have HuffPo tell you in its own words:

Even die-hard Bill Clinton fans had to have been a little creeped out by Chris Matthews’ overly-fawning docu-special, “President of the World: The Bill Clinton Phenomenon.” While the former president’s humanitarian efforts and his diplomatic reach are undeniably critical, even inspiring, with Matthews playing Clinton’s personal hype man, town crier and super fan all rolled into one, it’s kind of hard to focus on the message and not the messenger.

Surely we’re not the only ones who think that Matthews may fantasize that he is Monica Lewinsky.

Go to his house and we fear you’ll find a closet full of blue dresses that are 44 longs.

The Columbus Dispatch is unhappy with former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland. Very unhappy. And we can’t imagine that the residents of the Buckeye State are thrilled with him, either.

There is a long tradition in American politics in which an outgoing elected official says his goodbyes and then clears the stage for his successor. Even after bitterly fought campaigns, losing officeholders who take the high road during and after the transition are respected for their graciousness and dignity.


Newly-elected Ohio Governor John Kasich wonders if former Governor Ted Strickland is tetched in the head

At the very least, this conveys respect for the office, and equally important, it shows respect for the will of the voters who decided that someone new should take the helm…

Sadly, former Gov. Ted Strickland has not taken that high road, instead choosing almost from the moment the November ballots were counted to try to torpedo his successor, Gov. John Kasich.

Of course, this is his prerogative. He is an Ohioan fully entitled to participate in politics and express his views. But most politicians do not choose to end their careers and cap their legacies by engaging in sour-grapes sniping and public efforts to undermine the successor whose administration is barely under way.

Let’s see now. Gerald Ford left the stage gracefully. Jimmy Carter is still spouting off. Ronald Reagan left the stage gracefully and so did George H. W. Bush. Bill Clinton is still screaming, “Hey, look at me!” George W. Bush retired gracefully. And let us put ourselves out on the line here and predict that Barack Obama is never, ever going to leave the spotlight.

So based on this quick review, it’s clear that the Columbus Dispatch and IHTM have misunderstood that long-standing American tradition. We now realize that outgoing Republican officials retire gracefully, but Democrats never stop annoying their constituents.

What a remarkable difference between Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan.

While Barack Obama issued a timid statement on Libya that never quite got around to mentioning the dictator by name, Reagan had no problem saying exactly what he thought of Gaddafi. Need proof? Here’s a White House press conference from the 1980s where Ronaldus Magnus makes it all very clear:

“Well, we know that this mad dog of the Middle East has a goal of a world revolution, Muslim fundamentalist revolution, which is targeted on many of his own Arab compatriots.”

The other cool thing about this clip is seeing Helen Thomas squatting in the front row, 30 years younger, but surely as vile as she is today. Reagan’s condemnation of an Arab leader must have damn near given her a heart attack. And wouldn’t the world be better off today if they had?

Liberals have so damn many rules that it’s tough to keep track of them all, especially at the pace with which they make up new ones. Who knew you couldn’t name a cow after big, beefy woman?


Oprah, the cow, is apparently named after Oprah, the sacred cow

NBC Washington has details of the bovine bloviating:

A political leader in Maryland is under fire because of the name of a family pet.

Diana Waterman, the newly elected First Vice Chairman of the state Republican Party, has a black Angus cow named “Oprah.”

According to the Baltimore Sun, the issue came to light on a recent Facebook posting when the cow birthed a calf.

The Sun says the posting caught the attention of Sveinn Storm, who runs a Queen Anne’s County-focused blog called “Pave Our County?”

Storm criticized Waterman’s naming the cow after the African-American talk show host who has struggled with her weight. Storm say that’s “precisely why an enormouse (sic) number of Americans view Republicans as racists.”

Waterman defends the name. In a response to the Sun she said her children named the family’s three cows. Oprah was named for a person they admire. The other two, Ferdinand and Isabella are named after the Spanish monarchs who approved Christopher Columbus’s trip to the New World.

This brings to mind, of course, the withering criticism we’ve received for naming our office cat Obama. You can read that story here.

We’re thinking of buying a horse and naming its ass after Harry Reid. Anyone know if that would be a problem?

The Milwaukee school district is out of money, but it’s difficult to feel sorry for them. Especially when you understand how they’ve caved in to frivolous teachers’ union demands over the past few years.


Let's just hope we don't hear any Milwaukee teachers utter the phrase, "It's for the children."

SayAnythingBlog.com has the details:

Two years ago, the Milwaukee school district decided that it was more interested in enhancing teacher performance in the classroom than the bedroom.

The district cut Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs like Cialis and Levitra from its health insurance plan, hoping to save $786,000 a year.

Officials said too many teachers were using the expensive drugs for recreation, swelling their insurance rates. An estimated 1,000 of the 10,000 school’s staff, which includes employees, dependents and retirees, were using the drugs.

Now, teachers are fighting to get the benefit back with a lawsuit. The Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association (MTEA) argues that the new policy discriminates unfairly against men and “creates barriers” to receiving necessary medical treatment.

What a bunch of dicks.

Smackdown: Donald Rumsfeld vs. Andrea Mitchell

by editor on February 26, 2011

Isn’t it time for Andrea Mitchell to retire? No, seriously, shouldn’t she be shipped out to the Home for Embittered Old Reporters?

In this clip the blathering old warhorse attempts to trip up Donald Rumsfeld, who as former Secretary of Defense also seems to know a thing or two about going on offense.

Whether you love Rumsfeld or hate him, you have to admit that he doesn’t take any crap from the media.

As TheBlaze.com said, “Secretary Rumsfeld graciously endures the partisan attacks of Ms. Mitchell using the facts, eye-witness accounts, and supported by memos that he has posted on his website, a site that might have served as terrific pre-interview prep for the show’s producers. The time saved avoiding this wild goose chase might have offered more opportunities for the MSNBC audience to learn about the personal experiences of a man who has served his country inside the White House and the Pentagon during great moments in the life of our country.”

There’s a woman down in Florida who can teach those Wisconsin protesters a thing or two about staging a proper protest – the kind of protest that we’d not only get behind, but get in front of.


We got kind of distracted and don't really remember what this caption was supposed to say

DailyCaller.com has the double details:

A 42-year-old Bradenton Beach woman was arrested at Bayshore High School this week after she exposed her breasts to protest another woman’s exposed cleavage, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.

Laura Campanello, a parent of a child at the school, caused a disturbance at about 11:20 a.m. Monday when she started to yell that another woman who was enrolling her child at the school, was showing “too much breast,” according to a deputy’s report.

The deputy told Campanello that the woman was an adult, and “I cannot tell her what to wear as long as she is not exposing herself.”

Campanello responded, “Oh, then I can,” while reaching into her blouse and pulling out her breasts. “And then I can just do this,” while squeezing them together, the report states…

Campanello was charged with disorderly conduct and released from the Manatee County jail after posting $220 bond.

“Have a seat Ms. Campanello. Can I get you a cup of coffee? Ms. Allred will be with you in just a few moments.”

Nancy Pelosi is nuts. Stark, raving crazy. The Democratic National Committee wanted to honor the former Speaker of the House with a resolution, but she insisted on a re-write because the original wording wasn’t effusive enough.

nancy pelosi

Stretching the truth is nothing new for Nancy Pelosi

Politico.com has the ego info:

When the DNC’s Resolutions Committee brought up a resolution commemorating Pelosi’s years as speaker of the House, Pelosi’s daughter sought to alter the proposal at her mother’s behest, adding some of the accomplishments that the elder Pelosi felt the committee had overlooked.

“I have some friendly amendments,” said Christine Pelosi, a political strategist, at the committee’s session during the DNC Winter Meeting at the Marriott Wardman Park hotel Thursday afternoon. She is a member of the committee.

“You think I’m kidding,” Christine Pelosi added, to surprised laughter from the room. The proposed changes, she indicated, came out of a discussion with her mother.

First, Pelosi wanted to add a mention of her fight against HIV and AIDS, because it was “why she went to Congress.” Then, she wanted to insert a paragraph on her “accomplishments for equality,” mentioning the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 and the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” in December.

“Finally, since, as she said, ‘I’m not going anywhere,’ she wanted to add, in the final ‘whereas’ clause, ‘…and will continue the fight for America’s working families,'” Christine Pelosi said.

The committee applauded that point, and approved the amended resolution on a voice vote.

What? No mention of her personal crusade to support the Botox industry?

The lesson to be learned from this is that honorary resolutions are far more important than laws. Resolutions must be carefully read and rewritten to Pelosi’s exacting standards before they are passed. But laws? Laws must be passed before we can find out what’s in them.

It’s sad, really. Poor Michelle Antoinette is having a bit of difficulty accepting the fact that she’s been snubbed by real royalty. But forsooth, verily, snubbething is what they have done. Pip, pip, cheerio. (Admit it, you thought we were British there for a moment, didn’t you?)

The Daily Telegraph UK reports the regal repudiation:


She's American royalty, damn it. And she deserves an invitation to Britain's royal wedding.

Even after it was clear that Prince William and Kate Middleton would not be sending a wedding invitation to the White House, Michelle Obama still appears not to have given up hope.

“If I get invited, I’ll go,” the First Lady said on the Live With Regis and Kelly Show on American television. She conceded, however, that, as things stand, she had not been invited.

Her comments are likely to exasperate senior courtiers, who — as I reported on Nov 14 last year — had to put off naming the wedding date until a week after announcing the engagement because White House officials were not at first certain when Barack Obama and his wife would make their first state visit to Britain.

Obama’s men, adamant that the two events should not clash, subsequently agreed May 24 to 26, almost a month after the royal wedding, as the dates for his visit.

Don’t they know she is the new American royalty? Have they not heard that she’s called Michelle Antoinette? Not seen her regal demeanor? Not noticed her imperial attitude?

She’s one of them, damn it, and it hurts not to be accepted.

Barbara Walters note to self: “Be careful what you say to guests on The View’s Where Are They Now week.”

Remember Jessica Hahn? She got in trouble years ago for diddling televangelist Jim Bakker. Well, Hahn did the unthinkable on Wednesday’s The View – she didn’t accept a full serving of crap from Barbara Walters. In fact, when Walters attempted to cast stones at Hahn, she threw them right back.

In other words, she said, “What the hell are you making me out to be a skank when you admitted to being one in your own autobiography?”

Or words to that effect.

The best part of this video clip, we think, are the expressions on the faces of the View’s co-hosts. Is it just our imagination or do they all find Barbara’s comeuppance kind of funny?

The comparison is inescapable. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews really is beginning to sound like an abused spouse. “Yes, officer, he whacked me around but I love him and don’t want him punished.”

Mediaite delivers the details:

Chris Matthews had an immediate reaction to President Obama’s statement on the ongoing unrest in Libya and it was not positive. Even liberal commentators Howard Fineman and David Corn agreed that Obama’s statement was weak, and since Libya is no Egypt, Obama will have to talk tougher in the future.

Matthews’ surprising review of Obama’s speech:

“This statement could have been put out by the first President Bush. It has the aspect of an Arabist statement. I shouldn’t be too strong here, but it doesn’t have any dignity. I mean — Ronald Reagan — to his credit, said ‘evil empire’ before the fall of the wall.”

No dignity? This coming from a guy who publicly kisses Obama’s butt five nights a week? Hah! Good one, Chris.

Michael Savage may be correct when he says liberalism is a mental disease. As soon as we saw the headline, “Oregon Congressman Reportedly Urged to Get Psychiatric Help” we knew it had to be a Democrat.


When we read that a member of Congress needed psychiatric help our first thought was, "Nancy Pelosi."

Fox News has the truly tragic news:

Just days before the November midterms, senior staffers of U.S. Rep. David Wu were so alarmed over the Oregon Democrat’s erratic behavior that they demanded he enter a hospital for psychiatric treatment, a newspaper reported Friday evening.

The Oregonian, citing interviews with a number of anonymous staff members, reported on its website that Wu was increasingly unpredictable on the campaign trial and in private last fall, and had several angry and loud outbursts and sometimes said “kooky” things to staff and potential voters and donors. A similar report was carried on the Willamette Week newspaper’s website on Friday.

The fact that Wu was in the middle of a difficult re-election campaign from his Portland-area district made his behavior particularly worrisome to staff who organized a meeting with the congressman at his campaign headquarters on Oct. 30, with a psychiatrist joining by speaker phone.

“This is way beyond acceptable levels and the charade needs to end NOW,” wrote Lisa Grove, a senior and long-serving campaign pollster, in an e-mail to colleagues the day of the meeting. “No enabling by any potential enablers, he needs help.”

Wu was defiant and left the meeting, saying he was going to a movie, sources told The Oregonian.

At least he can tell the voters, “I was insane when I voted for ObamaCare.”

On a rare serious note, we wish Congressman Wu well and hope he is able to get the help he needs.

UPDATE: The Eugene Register-Guard, Oregon’s second largest newspaper, has now called for Wu’s resignation. Not because he’s crazy, but because he didn’t tell the voters he was crazy. And that’s what’s really crazy.

Ronaldus Magnus Day. The Great Man Day. Or maybe just keep it simple and call it Reagan Day. Call it what you want, the American people like the idea as much as Chris Matthews will hate it.


Ronald Reagan Day, celebrated every year by standing up to our enemies in the morning and by firing union scum in the afternoon

Rasmussen has details of Reagan Day:

George Washington is the only U.S. president who is officially honored with a federal holiday, but given a list of some of America’s most influential other past presidents, more than one-in-four Americans choose Ronald Reagan as the one if another were to be recognized with a holiday. John F. Kennedy comes in second.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 27% of American Adults believe Reagan should be chosen if there were another federal holiday celebrating a past president. Twenty percent (20%) pick Kennedy. Fourteen percent (14%) say Thomas Jefferson should be recognized with a holiday, while nine percent (9%) think Franklin D. Roosevelt deserves it most.

Just two percent (2%) prefer Theodore Roosevelt, and four percent (4%) opt for some other president. Twenty-three percent (23%) are undecided.

Of course, the poll is slightly unfair because Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama are already honored each year on April 1.
