Number Five with a Bullet

Reality Check Update: I sent a few pics off to BartCop to sully the memory of the most Reichmongering smelly pile of kimchee inspiring pResidential offal offering in recent history….

State of Disunion pictures

Hey Bart!

A big marga with Herradura Silver and Gold plus Grand Marnier is helping me to get through this tough assignment. Thank Koresh I can turn the vile Smirk off of my TV now...

This is like a rerun of a bad movie, and I don't WANNA watch any more!

Let me introduce the rest of Chimpy's foursome (L to R): Moe, Curly, and Larry.
They couldn't wait for the speechifying to end before getting the clubs out...

Keep the hammer pounding!

(: Tom :)

I finished just out of the money, in fifth place. But, hey, any excuse to post some more pics of Drinky McDumbAss pontificating opinionifying to one and all…

Late Breaking Update Go to Pax Liberalis. Do it now, and let the words impact your melon and soak in as soon as possible. I was just getting ready to rant about the insanity of Tipsy McStagger's megalomania, but somebody sent a link to an article to him called Digging Our Graves by someone named Bridget Gibson. She got it pretty much 'zackly right…

It's been 500 days since pResident Pinhead said we're gonna catch that bad man, Osama (Usama?) (Wassamatta U?) Bin Laden-with BFEE oil. What was that guy's name again? The one you didn't hear the other night?

500 days and counting, Drinky McDumbAss!

I got this joke from a friend the other day:

A tourist walked into a curio shop in San Francisco. Looking around at all the exotic items, he noticed a very lifelike, life-size bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but it was so striking, he decided he must have it.

He asked the owner, "How much for the bronze rat?"

"Twelve dollars for the rat. One hundred dollars for the story," said the owner.

The tourist gave the man twelve dollars. "I'll take the rat. You can keep the story."

As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, he noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and were following him down the street. This was disconcerting. He began trotting.

Within a couple of blocks, the herd of rats had grown into the hundreds, and they were squealing. He ran toward the bay. He looked around and saw that the rats now numbered in the MILLIONS and were squealing loudly, and they were coming toward him fast.

Scared, he ran to the edge of the bay and threw the bronze rat as far out into the bay as he could. Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the bay after it, and they all drowned.

The man walked back to the curio shop.

"Aha," said the owner, "you have come back for the story?"

"No," said the man. "I came back to see if you have a bronze Republican!"

All homage to Atrios for finding this one:

This is like a rerun of a bad movie, and I don't WANNA watch any more!

I'm not worthy!!

Reality Check

Note: I tried to put this up this morning, but Blogger seems to be having growing pains. Why don’t you stop by there and congratulate them on having a million residents in Blogistan?

I haven’t had enough time to go through all the important sites yet, or the text of pResident Moron’s latest lie. But a couple of things have caught my eye – and will hopefully catch yours, too – over at Take Back The Media:

They are claiming that news outlets had the speech before Drinky McDumbAss gave it last night (see the Seattle has TIME MACHINE - SOTU speech BEFORE the SPEECH article). I cannot verify this, because the heading looks like it has changed. Maybe the article they were looking at has morphed already…

They are reporting that Comcast refused to show the anti-war ads during Tipsy McStagger’s jingoistic propaganda pResidential address last night. Comcast said that they are doing this because they included unsubstantiated claims. Hmmmmm. You mean, claims like, oh, say – a 12 year old girl who smokes one joint will get pregnant? Or claims like “To insist on integrity in American business, we passed tough reforms, and we are holding corporate criminals to account.”? Or is it just claims that aren’t in line with your master’s wishes?

The only encouraging note was the pre-buttal and post SOTU reply from the Democrats. Maybe they’ll get rid of those pink tutus soon and start standing up to this monster…

On a personal note, I actually had Smirky McWarhardon on my TV screen last night! Just long enough to snap some pics for BartCop’s State of the Union pictures contest. And I had to take a couple of Margaritas and some chemical refreshment in order to make it that long without hurling (or hurling something) at the screen. It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it…

By the way: I see that I might actually be viewed by tens of people from time to time. Why don’t you take a minute, and email me? Tell me what you like, and what you don’t. Or just say hi…

D Day Minus One

We’re 24 hours and change from watching Drinky McDumbAss pratfall again while selling Oil War II another elite cash grab sound economic policy initiatives tomorrow night in the State of the Union address. He’s been practisering all day! I wonder if he’s gonna tell me how I can get one of them ‘architectural fancy machines’ he talks about. Honestly – can anyone tell me the last time the moron in class was proud he didn’t know anything?

Lots of people over in the Funny Farm Links Zone have been saying an awful lot of interesting things. In particular: Atrios/Eschaton pointed to an appearance by Janeane Garofalo on Media Whore TV where she rips Howie the Ho a new one; Take Back the Media tells us that the Boycott Rush Limbaugh Sponsors initiative seems to be paying off; Overboard has some excellent discussion and interesting links for you to look at; The Daily Brew offers a very insightful look at Chimpy’s big speechifying gig tomorrow night; and Pax Liberalis talks about what he would do if he were in pResident Drunken Cokehead’s shoes. So I only have a couple of tidbits to show you today:

The Governor of Tennessee is declining to take his salary this year (he’s one of the elite, and doesn’t need the chump change of $85K per annum). Relevant statement: “he can't accept it when he's contemplating the layoff of state employees to deal with a budget shortfall.” Funny Farm Facts of Note: he’s a Democrat who got elected in Tennessee; the write up on this story is very short (cough cough CNNproteststory cough cough).

The market closed at 7989.56, down 141.45 points. Right before the SOTU and right after an NFC - but not an old NFL team - won the Super Bowl. What do the usual theories say about this sort of thing?

Good night, and have a pleasant tomorrow!
