I see a humiliating home-field sweep at the hands of the Bosox.

It's a secret plot by Valerie Jarrett to shut down all conservative blogs.

I see a gleaming city on a hill.

All our internets are belong to you, dude!

Uncle BigBad

Just as we all expected, Sec Def's slobbering praise of The Won as the gutsyest president ever is all over MSNBC.

Is it true that he resigned so he can campaign for The Won's reelection?

Captain Hate

I hope the Google idiots somehow suffer for what they did to Althouse and Patterico.

I see a mutton, lettuce, and tomato sandwich where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is...

Oh yeah.
I see it.

I see a big green egg about to be set up in my backyard so I can make even better things to eat when JOMers come to visit.

Interesting and disturbing story from AmSpec
on the reassembling and resurrection of ACORN in time to reelect their favorite son, Barry.

Dude claiming an alibi. I don't think it works, since as I recall the maid said it occurred shortly after noon.

Peugeot 404; that was a great car.

"Win The Future Is It Now?"

I'd have to say no.

Danube of Thought

WaPo:

The Obama administration will begin to tap federal retiree programs to help fund operations after the government loses its ability Monday to borrow more money from the public, adding urgency to efforts in Washington to fashion a compromise over the debt. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner has warned for months that the government would soon hit the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling — a legal limit on how much it can borrow.
MarkO

Wow. I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles.

Dave (in MA)
Peugeot 404; that was a great car.
My first car was a 4 year old 504. Great-driving car, but it was rusted through by the time it was 5 years old and needed an engine rebuild when it was 6.

I can't remember the last time a politician has so completely committed political suicide in the first weekend of his/her campaign.

Sorry, I thought this thread was about losers.

Then again, Layton 'augured in'spectacularly, and yet the NDP ended up the largest opposition bloc in Canada.

Is this the birther thread?

Old Lurker

Good riddance I say Neo.

Danube of Thought

Who woulda thought we'd see this from the editorial board of the L.A. Times:

California's much-vaunted high-speed rail project is, to put it bluntly, a train wreck. Intended to demonstrate the state's commitment to sustainable, cutting-edge transportation systems, and to show that the U.S. can build rail networks as sophisticated as those in Europe and Asia, it is instead a monument to the ways poor planning, mismanagement and political interference can screw up major public works. For anti-government conservatives, it is also a powerful argument for scrapping President Obama's national rail plans, rescinding federal funding and canceling the project before any more money is wasted on it.
Old Lurker

To Newt and Huck both.

Neo

California's much-vaunted high-speed rail project

Does anybody find it odd that Obama is busy promoting high speed rail at a time when we all know that al Qaeda's 10th anniversary 9/11 terror campaign appears to be targeting rail ?

A funny exchange on Squawk Box this AM compared the IMF guy to this guy.

I can't see you. But I can see this: What Yesterday's Palestinian Protest Means For Israel. Things are changing--even Commentary was pretty much liveblogging 'Nakba day' events. Pretty soon it'll be: we're all Palestinians on Nakba day.

TM,

You are even coming in clear in China.

clarice

No, ext. I plan to place it right off the kitchen and I figured the clip on tables would be adequate.(Naturally after I raced around this morning to get everything done, the delivery guys are late!@$&%)

Jim Ryan

I don't think I will ever listen to a thing Newt says again. The Al Sharpton thing was the first straw. The "Ryan's plan is extreme right-wing social engineering" talk was a dump load of straws. Has he suffered a brain event since 1994?

Whom am I rooting for? Herman Cain.
Ask me again and I'll tell you the same.

hit and run

For a second there I thought my dear friend sylvia's complaints to TM's "colleagues" and "employer" Typepad about being "stalked" when I asked if she wanted to get together for coffee and in response she threatened to release details about TM and his family . . . had finally paid off.

Good! Wonder if Obama will spring him.

I believe President 404 is Obama's nickname from Soylent. Error 404, missing content error.

ANNOUNCER 1: Johnny, I've never seen anything like it before! Gingrich comes out of his corner at the beginning of round 1 and turns around and punches his manager right in the kisser! His own manager! What the heck was he thinkin'?

ANNOUNCER 2: I don't know, Pete, but it just got more bizarre as Gingrich immediately proceeded to waive his arms in the air and take a victory lap around the ring....Wait a minute, it looks like he's inviting Al Sharpton into the ring to celebrate with him....

Is anybody familiar with the practice of giving a small token payment to a school's headmaster at graduation ?

I seem to remember something like this in "Goodbye, Mister Chips" where moments after receiving their diploma the graduate hands a small token payment to the headmaster.

They gave me a tip for finally getting out of their hair.

Didn't see any national rail service in Mad Max, did you? That's the kind of future anti-government conservatives want.

Obama can't spring him. He's in the state court system, and only Andrew Cuomo can do it. And I sure don't see that happening.

Beinart is still clueless, what's new about that,

Wow. I get to see both Huck and Trump say no way in the span of 2 days. Good news indeed.

Trump managed to destroy himself in the public eye with this stunt. I'm glad.

The Socratic DSK: SHOCKING STRAUSS-KAHN INTERVIEW: I Could See Myself Becoming The Victim Of A "Honey Trap"

Interesting that he couldn't see it negatively: I can see myself NOT being...

Old Lurker

At the quiet and august Crossing in the Washington National Cathedral, where the Heads of School and the Bishop of Washington hand diplomas to the graduates of St. Albans (boys) and National Cathedral (girls), the graduates try to out do each other by draping something funny on the Headmaster, the Board Chair and Bishop all. By the end of the line, the place is no longer quiet nor august. Pictures do not appear in the WaPo.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Well sitting in jail without bail for a few days gives DSK some time to contemplate his "victimhood."

No Huck. No Trump. MFM hardest hit!

Jim Ryan

I think next thing we'll hear about Newt is that he supports "mend it don't end it" about Obamacare and that he got a waiver.

Let me be clear: DSK is a three bagger.

Even Dr. Dukan cannot help this gonef.

I want to try the filocino recipe which looks like the best one I've seen and so much better looking than trying baguettes in a home oven.

Serious smooches, clarice! Please go OT to let us foodies hear how your green egg performs--pizza and tandoori.

Scary stuff with Neo-SEIU (COI)organizing. They are really under the radar of most people. "What's wrong with getting out the vote?"

Didn't see any national rail service in Mad Max, did you?

Well, in "Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome" there was an example of national rail service in the last chase/fight sequence.

Pakistan to return tail of Navy chopper abandoned after raid on bin Laden compound, Sen. John Kerry says

 centralcal

lol, jimmyk!

Porchlight

Trump is owed a debt of thanks any way you slice it for forcing Obama to play the BC card before he planned to and thereby taking the birther issue off the backs of the rest of the GOP field.

And since Trump was never really running anyway, the serious candidates didn't have to sacrifice anything for this to happen.

Captain Hate

Porch gets it right. Trump did a better job than Duke and Duke will ever do at getting under BOzo's thin skin without a single smudge on the togas.

Janet

Trump managed to destroy himself in the public eye with this stunt. I'm glad.

Not for me. I will always appreciate Trump doing the job the MFM refused to do. The entire BC issue was/is sketchy. Trump is the only guy that stood up for all the citizens that had legitimate questions.

matt

The Strauss Kahn affair could not have come at a worse time from an economic standpoint. The EU is in chaos on the Greek crisis with Portugal and Ireland still hovering in the background.

The economists and money market experts say haircut, and the politicians are still in denial, at least publicly.

With Kahn sitting in jail, the IMF is in a dither. Remember, this is the guy who wanted to be the world's economic crisis manager. This takes one major player off the table for the moment.

It was interesting catching up on some of the news on planes this weekend. Soro's former right hand man, Stanley Druckenmiller, was interviewed in the WSJ about the potential technical default if the debt ceiling is not raised, and felt that if our government were to be seen to be dealing with the long term structural issues, it would not have much effect on the markets.

Bill Gross of PIMCO is steering out of US debt looking for safer havens.

And all the while Geithner and the Dems and Obama and most of DC are still playing the same games as always.

I think if they do raise the ceiling without deep spending cuts the dollar is going to tank some more and the inflation rate will go back into overdrive.

peter

Good point, Porchlight, and it wouldn't surprise me if he played the "I shot Bin Laden" card before he planned to also.

Ignatz

I will give Trump my Kamikaze of the month award.
Inflicted considerable damage by splatting pyrotechnically into the flight deck.

Extraneus

Surely you got the salt & pepper shakers.

Steg

I didn't read through all the comments today, so forgive me if someone posted this earlier. http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/ - Blog with comprehensive data on ATF: Operation Fast and Furious AKA Gunrunner. This issue should come into the national spotlight so people can wake up and see the threat from within!

Jane (sit on the couch or save your country)

Geithner has been saying if we don't raise the debt ceiling we will have a double dip recession, which tells me we are already in a double dip recession.

I bet the administration is mad that so much else is going on when they want to emphasize the debt ceiling being reached.

Captain Hate

Tammy Bruce just played a past clip where Krauthammer said that Trump told him he was definitely running.

Old Lurker

Trump did no damage to himself whatsoever.

He was a jerk. He is a jerk. He will be a jerk.

But it was fun hearing someone say out loud what others were thinking.

Old Lurker

Oh.

Nice jugs, Ext.

Sue

I read where the bump in the polls that Obama got after the bin Laden killing came mostly from Republicans. I figured as much and figured, correctly it seems, the bounce wouldn't last very long.

All you need to know about the Obama Admin.
Everyone of them believe this with all their heart.

jimmyk

Matt, what makes you think DSK's participation would help matters? My impression is that the IMF is pro-bailout aka kicking the can further down the road. If this weakens their position, the haircut route might be more likely.

Frau Roggenbrot

Steg, Thanks for your 02:18 link.

There are thousands of these issues out there that we need to have people concentrating on.
The threats from within are very really and must be stopped if this nation is to survive.

Ignatz

If you want to know what kind of creeps are running this government read Steg's 2:18 link. I've linked to the story previously but his link is much more comprehensive.
It's long, but the scandal it entails is a beaut. Were there any justice this would be the equivalent of that little break-in back in '72 flying under the radar for so long.
Of course in this case we have the MFM whoring after the perps rather than digging up the truth.
Let's hope the blogosphere can replace our 4th estate, which has devolved to a 5th column.

Captain Hate

Thanks for the link, Steg; the MFM is doing it's best to keep a lid on that and if Issa or somebody else doesn't bring it to everybody's attention, we may as well take down the flag.

Ignatz

Just to remind folks regarding Steg's link, Project Gunwalker was the Obama administrations bright idea to supplement Project Gunrunner.
Gunrunner was an attempt to identify and prevent 'strawman' gun sales to Mexican drug cartel frontmen.
Holder and co came up with the bright idea of not just interdicting but actually allowing strawman sales to go through [over the strenuous objection of the gun dealers involved]and the guns to go to Mexico, unimpeded, in a hopeless quest to track down the major players. The result is an unknown number of dead Mexicans and probably Americans and at least two USA Federal agents murdered by guns the ATF intentionally allowed to be sold to the cartels.
Now that ATF and DOJ whistle-blowers have sprung it open, the extent of the coverup is only now coming to light.
If Issa is smart Holder will be tarred and feathered and the whole mess will be a giant black eye for Barry.

Frau. I knew you'd spot that. This morning to go with some gravlax I made for dinner, I baked a bolzano rye but used Leahy's recipe/ O tasted a smidgeon and it was great.

A $40 million gift being announced today by the Claremont School of Theology, a Methodist institution, will allow it to add programs to train rabbis and imams, The Los Angeles Times reported. The enlarged institution -- with divisions to train Methodist, Jewish and Muslim clergy -- will be renamed Claremont Lincoln University.

In related news, gangs of Muslims continue to assault and murder unarmed Christians and Jews wherever they can be found in Egypt, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Sudan....

Frau,

Is that a real picture? Holy cow.

Awesome h/t to Steg.

Isn't a Methodist school of theology training imams rather like a vegetarian culinary institute opening a campus dedicated to stewing vegetarians in cannibal's kettles?
