So Anyway

Back when I thought that I was still employed I bought a DVD copy of the HOUSE OF CARDS trilogy. An interesting series. Its too bad the villain is a conservative politician, but is was fun to watch. I strongly suspect that is may have been source material for some of the paranoid Bush Derangement Syndrome theories that are circulating in the leftist mentosphere.

Mark Whittington wrote an alternative history of what Francis Urquhart, the protagonist of HOUSE OF CARDS, would have done if he were the British Prime Minister on September 11, 2001. You can read it here.

I decided to take off where mark left off and invent an American relative of of F.U. and have him run for president. This should be fun.

The first two chapters of LEGACY can be read here and here.


Part three of Legacy is up. Read it here.

Thought for the Day

I'm going to say something horrible.

If there were no other ill effects I would vote for Hillary just to see all the smug assholes who support her get some Gulag time. Nothing like being the star in a live performance of DARKNESS AT NOON to give someone a real appreciation of what socialism is really like.

So Anyway

I'm back.

I've been fired.

And I wish to thank Mark Urbin for keeping up the blog.

That is all for now.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

Rachel Lucas has a fine idea for new national holiday:
I hereby declare March 23 as Punch A Hippie In The Nuts Day. All you have to do to celebrate it is find a hippie, ask him how he feels about the military, and if he says anything other than “I love it because those guys make it possible for me to be a worthless hippie”, punch him right in the nuts.

Ted Kennedy vs. the Environment

Not only is he against wind power, he dumps oil right off Nantucket Sound.
Ted Kennedy has called Nantucket Sound near his Massachusetts estate “a national treasure” — but that didn’t stop the senator from having oil dumped from his yacht into its waters.

A local photographer spotted an oil slick coming from Kennedy’s yacht Mya as Kennedy and his guests left the vessel in a launch following a race that ended in Hyannis, the Cape Cod Today newspaper reported.

The lensman was so shocked that he rowed his dinghy out to question the crew member left aboard the yacht.

He asked the crewman, “What the hell are you doing?”

The crewman said that diesel fuel had gotten into the bilge and he was told to dump it.

When the photographer pointed out that the yacht was moored in coastal waters near shellfish beds and people swimming, the crewman replied, “Whatever.”

democrats vs. the Economy

Michigan democrat Congresscritter John Dingell wants to put a bullet in the back of the head of the US economy by way of a $0.50 a gallon gas tax.

With the economy already getting slammed by high energy costs, this socialist idiot wants to make the problem worse by stealing even more money out the pockets of working American in order to waste it on Beltway Pork Barrel boondoggles.

The lefts double standard

They have sooo many, here is another example by way of LGF:
Before Wright Firestorm, Obama Called for Imus Firing.
Barack Obama had been a presidential candidate for more than a year before he outright repudiated his long-time pastor for racially charged, anti-U.S. sermons. But when talk show host Don Imus was in hot water 11 months ago for racially insensitive comments, Obama was the first candidate to call for his firing.

When asked about the different responses to his pastor and to Imus, Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor questioned the premise of the comparison and defended Obama’s response in each case. “He spoke out both times, so it’s entirely consistent,” he told Tuesday.

Obama — who in a major speech Tuesday decried controversial remarks by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. dating back to 2001 — called for Imus to be fired just one week after Imus made the remarks in April 2007, two months after Obama had announced his candidacy.

“There’s nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. And I would hope that NBC ends up having that same attitude,” Obama told ABC News in an April 11 interview. ...

Obama said in the 2007 ABC interview he would never appear again on Imus’ show.

“He didn’t just cross the line,” Obama said. “He fed into some of the worst stereotypes that my two young daughters are having to deal with today in America.”

Good News

By way of Captain Ed at Hot Air comes the tale of a bunch of tangos who thought they were at a "safe house." A few missiles from a UAV explained to them that "safe" didn't quite mean what they thought it did. The chunks of ex-tango were not available for comment.

Even the Kos Kiddies get it...

" Saying that Hillary has Executive Branch experience is like saying Yoko Ono was a Beatle." HT to Glenn Reynolds.

Of course, the rabid far left extremist who is trashing HRC is an Obama supporter.
Barak Obama is actually to the left of Ted "Convicted Felon" Kennedy!

On the other hand, watching this kind of "blue on blue" back stabbing is kinda fun.

PardonGate returns...

Clintons are as Clintons do. Hillary Rodham Clinton is running true to form by hiding from the American voters the records behind Bill Clinton's well funded flurry of pardons.

As Ed Morrissey points out:
Hillary is a curious candidate. She wants to run on her “experience” as First Lady in the Clinton administration — but she wants us to see as little evidence of that experience as possible. In fact, she says that “experience” is so compelling that we would want her in the White House answering the phone at 3 AM when a crisis occurs. If it really is that impressive, why is she and Bill going to such lengths to hide it?

The pardons present a very tricky problem for Hillary. That really does speak to the character of the Clinton administration, and obviously not in glowing terms.

Barbarians in action

More video of enemies of civilization at work in Berkeley, CA.

Note the proud ignorance of the brainwashed teenagers.
You can spot several different kind of far left extremist wacko in the video.
