1894 FTW!

Gotta love, Sarah.

She even gets Gwen Ifill to look the fool all over Twitter. Serves her right for the lousy debate moderating she did during the 2008 campaign.

Extraneus

Focusing so many questions on foreign policy - Biden's supposed strength - Gwen still couldn't protect him from making 14 mistakes in that debate.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Extraneus:

You are making a huge assumption that Ifill has the brain power to recognize the mistakes in the first place.

bgates

Stupid conservatives. They all love golf, but none of them even know how to spell 'tee'.

Extraneus

I have no illusions about whether she could beat Wolf Blitzer at Jeopardy, Sara.

but none of them even know how to spell 'tee'.

Obama is definitely a Tee Partier

Party like It's 1994, TM.

"If Sarah said the sky was blue,progressives would tweet 'haha she's dumb'. If Sarah said there were fish in the sea,they'd tweet 'ummmm'.
--stuff Obama (almost) said

Porchlight

Gwen's walkback was even more dumb - "Stand down everybody. I was quoting Sarah Palin from her Nevada speech yesterday." Uh, yeah, ya dumb bunny, it was your editorial "ummmmm" that people were ridiculing.

You slay me,Hit.

Moonbeam Brown is promising state paid tuition to all, documented or not.

Frau Unpersuaded Yahoo

I know I am. I believe Sarah Palin is. Are you?
Hello, my name is Frau, and I'm an Unpersuaded Yahoo! The Anchoress has put it in writing that Peggy Noonan must envy:

And maybe that is what defines an elite: the lip-curled reproach to anything that has come before this privileged and smug generation—tradition, faith, heroic self-denial—and the illusion that their disdain is somehow a broader and more enlightened “love.”

For the most part, the “yahoo” non-elites do not begrudge the gentry their private jets, their private clubs, and their private schools. They do, however, begrudge them the superior dismissal of their values, and the constant attempts to control how others get to live their lives.

The ineducable masses begrudge the hectoring about their taste for “gas guzzlers,” from people who ride in limos. They dislike being dismissed as “provincial” or “parochial” by people who only associate with others of the same neighborhood and mindset. They are weary of being portrayed as less compassionate, less well-meaning, gosh darn it just lesser people because they believe in giving an equal-opportunity hand-up, rather than an impossible-to-sustain equal-hand-out.

"Moonbeam Brown is promising state paid tuition to all, documented or not."

Thats great Sara,

So the answer to California's crushing debt problem is to quadruple it by paying for free College for illegals? But of course. And unlike Jerry Brown, Sarah Palin was too stupid to see that as the obvious solution.

centralcal

Frau: I am an Unpersuaded Yahoo, too! Glad to meet ya!

Ignorance is no excuse

You trollops can't stop gushing over the
projective self-abuse that counters his exceptional intelligence, 'He's dumb' while you fawn over the icons of 'Americanus Ignoramus' and you don't care how assine you sound in the process.

You're like Vince Vaughns screen siblings whose only claim to fame is amateur cage-fighting. As he installs a satellite dish on the roof of his dad's house, the brothers watch while he works and comment
thusly;

" I'm sorry we're not helping. But we figured you could handle it being a Stanford graduate. (Guffaaaaawwww!!!)

Vaughns reply; "Very good. Go ahead and mock higher education!"

Your idiots are yours alone, Tea-baggers.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

They dislike being dismissed as “provincial” or “parochial” by people who only associate with others of the same neighborhood and mindset.

My Mother once told me that my Grandfather's most cutting admonishment to her and to her siblings was, "don't be so provincial."

bgates

Gwen's walkback was even more dumb - "Stand down everybody.

Can't you just picture Ifill as a befuddled substitute history teacher trying to regain control after exposing the fact that the 8th graders have read further ahead in the book than she has?

bgates

Stand down, Cleo.

Clarice

I'll keep saying it. The Republicans should en masse refuse to engage in any more media run debates. Straight Oxford style only.

I love watching the left display their ignorance in such a brazen manner.

Your idiots are yours alone, Tea-baggers.

Thank you for your incoherent post.

Why do the Republicans always fold, Clarice?
David Horowitz tried to help teach them how to fight.

gee, down to the ad hominem gutter in less that 20 posts....there must be significant fear and loathing setting in.

Posted by: Ignorance is no excuse

Your drivel is incoherent.
But here is a fin trip down memory lane...

These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis,” said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. ”The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”

How's that working out?

jimmyk

So now O'Donnell is being ridiculed for pointing out that "separation of church and state" is not in the 1st Amendment, but Coons gets a pass for not knowing what is in the 1st Amendment.
LUN

Ignorance is no excuse

"Straight Oxford style only."

Bring it. Unless you're merely being rhetorical. Tea-Bag types run from the serious questions which reveal the untenable ignorance and hubris. That's right, hubris.
They are unashamed of their Constitutional ignorance. In fact, they proudly embrace
their mantle, "Americanus Ignoramus"

Army of Davids

When free markets (once again) get blamed for the foreclosure moratorium.......remember this.....Fannie and Freddie owned MERS.

Rick Ballard

"Why do the Republicans always fold"

Many are paid up lifetime members of the credentialed moronacracy. The 'connections' route to the top produces many people with about the same average level of intelligence that one would expect to find in the hollers of West Virginia among folks whose family trees resemble telephone poles.

The modern Tea Party is going to require the same level of perseverance as that shown by the original, many of whose members did not live to see the Treaty of Paris signed, let alone ratification of the Constitution.

It's been a very long war and the end is no where in sight.

narciso

Rubio, really beat Crist soundly and left Meek muttering into the darkness in this most
recent debate, sponsored by Nova University

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

You trollops-
(why do lefties and cleo in particular hate and denigrate women so much?)-

You're like Vince Vaughns screen siblings whose only claim to fame is amateur cage-fighting.-

Ignorance is no excuse

'When free markets (once again) get blamed for the foreclosure moratorium'

Or when poor Hungarian free-marketers lay a nice turd-coat of aluminum by-products on the population and are expected to take accountability.

Jay

That's right, hubris.

Hysterical.

Coming from an Obama voter.

Your lack of self-awareness is staggering.

Army of Davids

Fannie and Freddie own MERS.

And a foreclosure moratorium is a very stupid idea that will cost the taxpayer.

Army of Misers

"And a foreclosure moratorium is a very stupid idea that will cost the taxpayer."

Thank yer butt-buddies, the Hedge-Funders. Homeowners should be honorable about their debts no matter how they were flim-flammed.

Jay

They are unashamed of their Constitutional ignorance.

Yes, Harry Reid knows little about the constitution:

“I understand that during her career, she’s written hundreds and hundreds of opinions. I haven’t read a single one of them, and if I’m fortunate before we end this, I won’t have to read one of them.

Oh, and here is Coons:

ask Coons if he could identify the “five freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment.”

Coons named the separation of church and state, but could not identify the others — the freedoms of speech, press, to assemble and petition —

No matter. You're not that bright and easily misled, which is why you're here flinging poo.

Army of Miscreants

"You're not that bright and easily misled,"

No mirrors at yer house, eh?

Army of Illiterates.

"You trollops-"

That word is totally gender neutral.

You boys are trollops, just as the little girls are. It's a descriptive term that highlights your loyalty to ignorance, and your antipathy toward the big picture.

Danube of Thought

Actually, the only state that is separated from the church in the first amendment is the federal state ("Congress shall make no law..."). At the time of its ratification there were a number of states that did, indeed, have established religions.

The prohibition against states' establishing religions was miraculously discovered in the language of the 14th Amendment, long after it was drafted and ratified by people who never dreamed that their words would be put to such use.

As for Mr. Jefferson's "wall of separation," suffice it to say that he played no part in the drafting of the constitution. He was in Paris while all of it was taking place.

Jay

No mirrors at yer house, eh?

Weak.

Go back to the tea bagger line, bozo.

Jay

that highlights your loyalty to ignorance,

Coming from the jobs saved or created and "shovel ready" jobs crowd.

Seriously, you lack of self-awareness is staggering.

Homeowners should be honorable about their debts

I guess that is why Obama is trying to stop foreclosures.

Oh well, coherence is not your strong suit.

Jay

OK, ball-sack hack

Funny.

I love watching you gay rights supporters make homosexual slurs.

It is just par for the course, bozo.

"...your antipathy toward the big picture."

I gather "the big picture" is some kind of reality. Please, please describe it for the Americus ignoramuses, or whatever you termed us.

Cordially...

Jay

that highlights your loyalty to ignorance,

Coming from someone who believes that socialized medicine is deficit neutral and government spending creates jobs.

Wow. I mean wow.

"Why do the Republicans always fold"

When if you are talking about GOP insiders, it is because they have the goods on them. That is not to says that the converse is not true as well, but the Dems are better protected.

Extraneus

Just want to point out that Glasater posted on the other thread that Barney Frank has just given his campaign $200K.

Is Barney sweating that bad? I think I'll have to click Bielat's donation button again.

Jay

and your antipathy toward the big picture.

You mean like this?

In return for adding nearly $3 trillion in federal debt in two years, we still have 14.9 million unemployed

By the way, you're not even American so why do you care so much?

I didn't think it was possible, but you fail the first semester of Trollop 101 (AKA Tea-Bagger prerequisite)

Turn in your moth-filled wallet and your myopic spectacles.

Jay

your antipathy toward the big picture.

Like this?

New numbers posted today on the Treasury Department website show the National Debt has increased by more than $3 trillion since President Obama took office.

By the way, in 1990, the entire federal debt was 2.3 Trillion.

Great job Obama!

Jay

your antipathy toward the big picture.

Uh, your ignorance is staggering.

Major US banks agreed today to halt foreclosure proceedings against homeowners until the White House foreclosure prevention plan is in place

But keep name calling because you don't know anything about actual policy.

Bonus:


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in a tough re-election race, urged five large mortgage lenders to suspend foreclosures in his state

Keep flinging that poo...

"homosexual slurs."

They acknowledge their tastes.

You, on the other hand...................

Jay

your antipathy toward the big picture.

Like this?

The state’s largest insurer has been approved to raise health premium rates by 41 percent to 47 percent for some of its policies sold to individual buyers, in the largest price hikes yet seen in Connecticut since the adoption of national health care reform.

For all of its individual market plans, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield has received approval to raise rates by at least 19 percent — including a range of 30 percent to 44 percent for the brand of plans in the individual market that was most popular in 2009, Century Preferred.

The reason for the increases is the new federal health reform mandates, according to Anthem and the state Department of Insurance,

Don't worry, your silly name calling is a direct result of the rage you feel for seeing the real world results of the policies you support.

Keep flailing...

Jay

You, on the other hand.

I love it.

Watching you gay rights supporters make homosexual slurs is quite endearing.

Keep flailing, failure!

Jane

I got notice today that the bank that holds my mortgage (some bank in Ohio) went under.

It's a very odd feeling. Now I'm wondering about the authority of whoever said they are taking them over. I feel like I am missing something.

Jay

They acknowledge their tastes.

Really?

Another silly assertion you couldn't possibly prove.

Hurry, post under some other dumb name.

Hurry!

Porchlight

Coons named the separation of church and state,

Except "separation of church and state" is not in the Constitution, which was O'Donnell's point. Coons actually got it right the second time, but it looks like Politico hasn't been able to figure out the fine points.

Unbelievable how willfully stupid liberals are on this point.

bgates

Cleo, make sure you come back here and post after your party gets crushed in the election, ok? Otherwise we might think the soul-crushing emptiness of your life finally caught up to you.

I know it will be hard for you when we're all so very happy, and you're all alone in your impotent hatred.

PD

Coons actually got it right the second time

Not sure about that. Sounded to me like he mangled what he was trying to say both times.

Porchlight

I think he did manage "establishment of religion" the second time, PD, but you're right, he screwed up when he got "separation" in there again.

Of course he probably thinks the two concepts are equivalent anyway, being a liberal.

PD

Of course he probably thinks the two concepts are equivalent anyway, being a liberal.

I think you're right. I suspect that's why he "articulated" the 1st amendment that way, little knowing how wrong he was.

Jane-

Please check the assignments at the Recorder's office.

OL, and others, covered a lot of this stuff the other night.

And a written "Request for Qualified Response" from your originator would be helpful.

Just to avoid the Department of HomeOwner's Halloween.

I'll try and e-mail some links tomorrow. After my dust settles, some new estate issues I was not expecting.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--That word [trollop] is totally gender neutral.--

There are no definitions in the first several dictionaries consulted that do not specifically relate "trollop" solely to the female gender, Einstein.

Encarta:
1.an offensive term that deliberately insults a woman who is a prostitute or who is reputed to be sexually promiscuous ( dated insult )
2. an offensive term that deliberately insults a girl or woman regarded as slovenly or as having untidy habits ( insult )

Merriam Webster's site:
: a vulgar or disreputable woman; especially : one who engages in sex promiscuously or for money

Webster's New World:
1.Now Rare a slovenly, dirty woman; slattern
2.a sexually promiscuous woman; specif., a prostitute

Our cowardly lion of semantics proves again he is not only innumerate but illiterate as well. Kind of sad, in a way.

Melinda Romanoff

Ig-

(Sorry about the e-mail dump. Just trying to emphasize that this is not a small problem.)

--(Sorry about the e-mail dump. Just trying to emphasize that this is not a small problem.)--

No problemo Mel.
I still think on the foreclosure side it either won't be or won't be allowed to become a large problem. On the MBS side I'm not sure what their defense will be. Probably to go hat in hand to Ben and Barry's Ice Cream and TARP Emporium and say "please sir, may we have some more?"


Charlie (Colorado)

That word is totally gender neutral.

In your dreams, cretin:

"trollop [ˈtrɒləp]
n
1. a promiscuous woman, esp a prostitute
2. an untidy woman; slattern
[perhaps from German dialect Trolle prostitute; perhaps related to trull]"

Excellent Noemie Emery article LUN

You were a long-suffering liberal Democrat, and he was your airbrushed fantasy president come to life: FDR without polio, JFK without women, John Kerry with brains, Al Gore with charisma, Bill Clinton without those cringe-making vibes from Hot Springs. You swooned and you sighed, you got him elected, and you settled in to see how great life could be with someone like you in the Oval Office.

Good grief!

Obama to appear on Stewart's "Daily Show"

President Barack Obama is taking his campaign message to "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart.

White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer says Obama is taping an appearance on Oct. 27, just days before the Nov. 2 elections. Stewart is coming to Washington next week for the "Rally to Restore Sanity" he is holding three days later on Saturday, Oct. 30, on the National Mall.

The host of the Comedy Central show says the rally is for people who think the loudest voices shouldn't be the only ones people hear.

Obama recently endorsed Stewart's event. It will be the president's first appearance on Stewart's program.

Might be of interest. like buying fire insurance on someone else's house and then burning down the house.

"
He said that the big banks that packaged mortgage backed securities had an incentive to suck in really bad mortgages. If a certain percentage of the mortgages default, the cdo and cds side bets pay many times more than the actual mortgage could possibly pay."

"See this on how credit default swaps can be used like buying fire insurance on someone else's house and then burning down the house ,"

Could be good.

So will Jon save the Dems or save Obama? Casey O'Bam you better, watch your speed.

Jack is Back!

Mak,ala,aka JOMOs,

Watching the Rubio v. Pencil Neck and Crybaby last night reminds me until this election cycle we have had a lot of mediocre candidates on both sides. With no disrespect, lots of lawyers who thought their oratorial skills and knowledge of legislative processes was all voters were interested in.

Now, after two major military conflicts in the last 9 years, plus some very unpopular legislation, a crumbling exceptionalism and increased devaluing of everything American, we have a new breed of candidate. They are for the most part, young, ex-military, come out of diverse professions - business, medicine, local politics, entrepreneurs, etc. And it seems that the professional politicians like Crist and Meek just do not know how to understand and respond to the essence of the Tea Party movement and ideal.

The candidates with the most traction are those who understand and can project the Tea Party values and concerns in a common sense manner that the elite establishment of political professionals just cannot fathom.

I think one of the first things the new Congress (if it is a republican one) can do is give redundancy notices to current committee staff. Sounds extreme but believe me changing out both sides of the aisles committee staffs offers a fresher beginning to get out of this mess than any other action I can think of. Then publish a manifesto of the Tea Party Caucus and Young Guns - limit to the top 5 actions to be undertaken to restore American Exceptionalism and reduce government and debt.

Do not let this victory go to waste in the first 10 days. Drive and drive hard the benefits of this take over. They will need to out communicate Obama and his mercenaries in the media.

rse

Thank you Mel. The book merely said Hallett started the bank behind CRA.

It's hard not to see what these socialists did with all that Woods and Annenberg money as setting the template for what they had in mind for all that stimulus money.

Use OPM to reward cronies and direct bad policy.

It's scary how many of the fed reports now openly refer to what they want the "nonprofits" doing to push their desired policy.

JIB-agree on the committees and staff. I think that is why local politicians that go to DC as "conservatives" end up within a few years talking in a manner that makes you wonder if there is lead in some of those water pipes going up to Capitol Hill.

Army of Yes Men

Funny how you reality pretzels hold words hostage until YOU need to pervert their use.

'Trollop' is gender neutral because I am using it that way in this context. You know, the same way you treat the word 'troll'

A true trollop curries favor with the locals so he can have the long-distance comraderie with strangers who pretend to be his friend, until he crosses them. He lavishly praises the fossilized matron who hoers over her territory like a turkey vulture eyeing road kill, and makes funny jokes and shares recipes with all the family.

So, lets not get too impressed with yer so-called word integrity.

'Trollop' is gender neutral because I am using it that way

`I don't know what you mean by "glory",' Alice said.

Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. `Of course you don't -- till I tell you. I meant "there's a nice knock-down argument for you!"'

`But "glory" doesn't mean "a nice knock-down argument",' Alice objected.

`When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.'

`The question is,' said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.'

`The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master -- that's all.'

Ranger

'Trollop' is gender neutral because I am using it that way in this context.

Language is only effective as a means of communication because communities agree on the meaning of words before they are used in a particular context. You have managed to turn the entire concept of language on its head with that statement. Not a surprising feat for a progressive though. Just look at what the left has managed to do with the Constitution. As Instapudit put it this morning:

Once you understand that to the credentialed-instead-of-educated, the Constitution is a wish-fulfillment device rather than, you know, an authoritative text, it all makes sense.

The Kelo decision revolved around accepting the transformation of the original text of "public use" to mean "public good" because "using it that way in this context" made sense to the left leaning judges.

Rob Crawford

Ranger -- the fun with the "the word is X because I mean X" group is to confront them with an unexpected (but perfectly correct) usage of a word. There's a poem from "The Hobbit" that could cause such people serious agita.

(But, then, we are in an age when "black hole" and "niggardly" are considered "racist". It's not really about meaning or intent for such people, it's about power.)

As for 'cleo, this latest episode is sad, almost pitiable. The anger at the sense of comradeship the rest of us share -- wow, how pathetic.

And when Obama crowed that we were on the "precipice of health care reform",he didn't mean that he was about to take the Democratic party over the cliff.
