A Casual Observation

First

rse

I am so tired of this issue.

Just like the MSM theme of pushing how well the economy is recovering.

Comanche Voter

98% of the voters love Obama.
98% of the folks in state mental hospitals love Pelosi.
98% of what I hear from the main stream media is utter rubbish.

I think I'm starting to get my facts straight--that first one was a whopper!

Jane

98% So does that mean all Catholic Babies are on the pill?

Extraneus

Why do you come here, Anne?

A Casual Observation

Go fuck yourself, Extraneous.

Extraneus

Is that a serious answer to a serious question?

narciso

Memes are like that some of those really annoying songs, that you can't get out of your head.

Danube of Thought

Of course if the figure were 100%, that would still not affect the question whether religious institutions should be coerced by the state into providing it for them.

narciso

Really, Roger, you pay him 7 million for this sort of wisdom

Not Sara

As Clarice has stated on another thread, all this is not the question. The real question is of religious freedom. I agree--I am SO tired of all of these people talking about the birth control pill.

A Casual Observation

I retract my 7:20 post. I stooped to your level.

Sue

98%. The percentage Sadaam Hussein got in every election.

centralcal

lol, Sue!

Gmax

I take that as confirmation that ACO = Anne. So what is with the sockpuppetry? You really look up to Chief Kickin Poo and what to be just like him?

Jane

2 minutes! That's more like it!

A Casual Observation

I take that as confirmation that ACO = Anne.


Well, duh. Ain't the brightest bulb on the tree, are ya?

A Casual Observation

They get confused so easily.

MarkO

Well, I'll say this for the way Obama has framed this and the stupidity of our side, it got Santorum to talk about the evils of the sexual revolution. That's right. The evils of the sexual revolution. Now there's a winning political topic.

And they said Romney was like Father Knows Best.

Please note that Steyn has taken to using the word "doom."

Extraneus

How about answering my question?

Not Sara

Well, MarkO, I totally agree with you. What are we to do?? I think that Romney looks like an android--nice, but those eyes?? Totally void. Where is Sara to answer us?

A Casual Observation

Say please

Danube of Thought

Poor Sara has evidently been so demoralized by her man's performance that she has abandoned the field.

And can it really be that we will be left with Rick Santorum? (Cue Allen Iverson: "Santorum? We talkin' about Santorum? Santorum?)

Clarice

Sister Keehan is well paid and her group will make a lot if Obamacare isn't overruled:

"So let's get down to brass tacks. How much is Sister Keehan worth for such political interventions? The checkered Catholic hospitals Keehan represents as chief executive officer of the Catholic Health Association stand to receive gobs and gobs of cash from the federal government if Obamacare holds up past 2012. Consequently, the members of the association are more than happy to pony up huge salaries to executives skilled at manipulating the Catholic electorate for Obama.
Keehan is worth $962,467 to them in total salary and benefits, according to the Schedule J (Form 990) 2010 document sent to me by CHA. Theoretically, this is paid to the nun's order, though CHA adds an intriguing caveat to its compensation figures:"

MarkO

Based on tonight's news, Rick is working on his Wicked Witch of the West imitation, in which he slowly dissolves.

Not Sara

How can that be, DoT--left with Santorum???? EEEKKK is all I can say. What to do, what to do?

hit and run

I retract my 7:20 post.

What a weenie.

Say please

Weenie squared.

A Casual Observation

See? Ron Paul is beginning to look pretty good, isn't he?

Clarice

A brokered convention looks nearer. Maine's victory for Romney now is in doubt , too, with the tabulation from yet another county yet to be made.

Ben Franklin

"Weenie squared."

I always round off on odd numbers.

Ben Franklin

"And can it really be that we will be left with Rick Santorum?"

Thank you , Tea Party...

A Casual Observation

@ 8:27

Um, explain to me again, retard, why I
should give a rat's ass what you think?

Not Sara

So, Clarice, what happens with a brokered convention? Do the "men in the smoke-filled room" pick a candidate or what?

Clarice

Am Spec says if it weren't for the Tea Party the bishops would be square with Obama's overreaching HHS regs. I'm not sure of that, but if the Tea Party succeeds in putting some spine in the Bishops and the Republican party that would be a good thing. As Steyn says Obama's budget deficit projections are reaching to Gingrich's moon colony.

hit and run

explain to me again, retard, why I
should give a rat's ass what you think?

I really don't have to explain...because you responded,genius.

narciso

Me thinks he was never acquainted with that fellow Pyrrhus, when he was at Cranbrook, or Stanford.

centralcal

Well, I for one am very proud of the Tea Party (and Catholic) turnout for Obama's Nob Hill fundraiser. Guess they far outnumbered their Occupy brethren on the other side of the street. Woot!

narciso

Interesting how a picture says a thousand words,


http://www.flickr.com/photos/76803040@N04/sets/72157629350662271/

Not Sara

But, I thought all of you said that the Catholic Church would not back down for anything, and, now, Clarice, you are saying the Am Spec is saying the Tea Party is the reason the bishops are not backing down? That is really, really sad that they--the bishops--do not have more backbone than that--that they have to use the Tea Party for their resolve to not back down. That is pitiful.

centralcal

...has evidently been so demoralized by her man's performance that she has abandoned the field.

Well, DoT, I did see her and her band wagon a few days ago at Patterico's - only saw one longish rah-rah comment, but nobody seemed inclined to jump on her band wagon there either.

narciso

Yes, that was another brilliant intelligence move, on his part, sarc;

A Casual Observation

@ 8:36 - Snappy reply there, retard. Snappy. LOL @ U

Clarice

The delegates selected by each state meet and hash it out. Those committed to each of the candidates by virtue of primary and caucus victories probably will vote for their guys in the first round but since no one has a majority which is why the convention will decide it will wheel and deal, and I suppose non candidates like Palin will have an opportunity to speak and try to garner support for one of those men or someone new.

Ben Franklin

Does commenting as Anne make my ass look fat?

Ben Franklin

cock-puppets are not long, but at least they're not fat.

Clarice

Not Sara, I am not saying the Am Spec is right, just that that is what the author says. I think it's an exaggeration myself.

narciso

Which writer, I couldn't find it on their site.

Clarice

See 8:24 post for link, narciso.

hit and run

Snappy reply there, retard.

And yet you have no reply to Extraneus,genius.

Avoidance is very becoming.

Hit responds to the name, "retard". LOL PRICELESS!!!

Can't make this stuff up, folks.

Can't we have Ryan at a brokered convention? Not only right on the fiscal issues, but a real Catholic without the Santorum sanctimony.
Check out the lun for his question to Geithner.

Having disposed of the retard question,let's now focus back on Extraneus's.

Unless there is some reason why you keep avoiding answering it...

Livid.

That's what I am---Livid.

Here I woke up in Summit, New Jersey this morning and thought I would wander the town looking at the tribute to their latest great dead cultural icon, Whitney Houston.

We're at The Summit Lodge, some place that back in the about 1868 was a barn, but they've since turned into a hotel. The company canceled the hotel contracts with Rahway and East Brunswick and Secaucus, so here I am, after landing at Newark at 2 am last night, waking up to a brand new New Jersey layover hotel in a new town--- Summit.

According to WiKI it was named Beacon Hill back in Revolutionary times, and a place where a huge light on a stick atop a big hill could send a beam 18 miles away to Geo Washington's troops that the Redcoats were on the move after him. After the War it became known as Turkey Hill, then later Summit Hill, and finally simply Summit. (Had an old girl-friend from this place 40 years back, but one of us was too intelligent to marry the other, so I'll not go into that.)

Anyhow, upon waking this morning and discovering that Rush Limbaugh's broadcast was like that offsetting Winston Churchill pudding--"without a theme", I turned him off and decided to stroll the town, and the theme that struck me was the appropriate respect that ought to be given by the State of New Jersey to her latest dead cultural icon, Whitney Houston.

Fixing to drown my Whitney sorrows, I asked the way to the best tavern in town, and was instructed by the concierge gals to exit the hotel and turn right down Springfield Avenue. This I did.

T'was a bright, sun shiny day, 50 degree's and gorgeous, when I began my walk at 2 local, 10 am Anchorage time.

Just up at the corner I came upon the Summit City Hall and Police Station building, and thank goodness they had the American Flag and New Jersey State Flag at half mast on their flagpole, respectfully honoring the culturally iconic dead crack addict. That was certainly good to see.

Next I continued my saunter down Springfield Street for a few blocks, where glancing to the right down Maple Street, I was appalled to see that the Flag outside the US Post Office was at Full Mast, not half mast. WTF?

This had my blood boiling, so I turned right on Maple and was able to notice that the next Flagpole beyond the Post Office was at Half Mast. (Whew!) This was reassuring, as shortly the large YMCA sign came into view, so I knew that that outfit was up to snuff on honoring the snuff addict; but then, even more shocking, I noticed I was wrong, and that the YMCA , just like the Post Office, had a recessed Flagpole with the Stars and Stripes, at Full, not Half Mast. What I had actually been seeing at Half Mast was the Flagpole in front of the next building down, the Summit Free Public Library. They, the Librarians, had had the courage and respectfulness to lower their flag to Half Mast in honor of their State's latest drugged out dead iconic crack addict, not the YMCA.

I just about pooped I was so angry. The Postal guys I could forgive because they are generally incompetent and crazy public employees, but the YMCA? What the hell is their excuse for not kowtowing to public pressure and Governor Christie's demands that they honor the suicidal gal that voluntarily spent many, many thousands of dollars snorting illegal, soul deadening drugs up her nose?

Livid. Did I say I was livid yet?

Well not hardly, because there, just across Maple Street from the Library was the Central Presbyterian Church, and those scumbags had a humongous Flagpole, with "Old Glory" raised to Full mast. Inconsiderate a-holes. Across Broad Street was the Lawton C Johnson Summit Middle School, and it had not 1 but 2 Flagpoles disrespectfully waving the Star Spangled banner at Full Mast. Bastards---Don't they care about promoting role models for our children? And if they won't get onboard and promote reverence for New Jersey's most infamous suicidal crack addict, then who will they promote as role models?

But it gets worse.

The Summit Volunteer First Aide Squad? Full Mast.
The ElderCare Facility? Full Mast.
The Broad Street Jeep Dealership? Full Mast.

And the most unkindest curt of all---the War memorial Park.
There, in that bucolic Elm Street park, surrounded by the Train Station and the Post Office and the Library and the Churches and Schools, and amidst monuments commemorating Summit's War Dead in the Revolutionary War, The Civil war, The First World War, The Second World War, The Korean War, and The Vietnam War, those disrespectful sunsuvbittches had the gaul to have raised the Flag of The United States of America to the top of the pole, and just below it, waving even higher than the Library's flag at half mast across the Street, waved the POW/MIA banner.

What an unpatriotic bunch of bastards are these Summit New Jerseyians. I hate 'em all. I was so livid that I asked a cop for a steer to a good drinking hole and he pointed me to The Beacon Hill Tavern.

Took me a couple hours to get out of my Patriotic funk, but after a couple pints and jabbering with the locals about their Revolutionary History, I felt a bit better. They seemed to be honest, decent folk, exceptionally well versed on local revolutionary history and George Washington and Thomas Paine and the Constitution and the requirements of citizens in a Constitutional republic, but what with their Police Station and City Hall and Library not fully participating in Governor Christie's program to honor their most famous recent dead illegal drug-abusing drug addict, can I depend on them to lower their flags to Half Mast when Snookie loses America's got Talent?

Geez. I just don't know anymore.

If 98% of Catholic women now use contraceptives does that mean they're going to Occupy the unprotected 2%'s uteruses until they get Barry's bail out?

Loved, loved, loved the walking tour of New Jersey flag poles, daddy! Oddly, comforting and chuckle inducing at the same time.

You can ignore me then. Just like you did Extraneus's completely rational question.

Ignorance is bliss in your world.

Jane

Hey! If anyone gets an email from Loretta Young don't open it. Something hijacked an old email account of mine and somehow sent an email to people I know but have never emailed from that account. TK got one and Amy just called and said it was a Cialis ad, but I assume it is a virus.

A Casual Observation

Aw, don't get sore. You should be flattered that we played with you. We made New Year's Resolutions thar we weren't going to argue with fools or with retards or with psychos or with insufferable creeps or with assholes anymore. TTFN :)

I got one, too, Jane. I forgot that was an old nickname of yours.

Ryan was adamant on FNS that he wants to stay in the House. I'm taking him at his word.

Daddy,

They aren't supposed to lower the flags until tomorrow.

I'm just sad you (and whoever else makes up the "we" in your statement...a mouse?) broke your New Year's Resolution over little ol' me. I was not worth it. And you should have known better or been more disciplined if you were unretarded.

Alas,you weren't. I blame myself.

Better luck next year.

daddy

"They aren't supposed to lower the flags until tomorrow."

Bummer. I'll be in Paris:(

Jane

It's really odd Clarice because I haven't sent an email from that account in more than 10 years. It's where all my spam goes.

narciso

Yes, someone commandeered my email, a few months ago, and spammed everyone I contacted.

(Another) Barbara

I'm trying to comprehend how anyone can seriously propose a brokered convention. That would mean, wouldn't it, that we'd have a nominee who had not participated in a debate, had not walked the streets asking for votes, had not sat for (and endured) interviews about his candidacy, and had not been vetted by both friends and enemies. I don't see it as remotely possible.

(Another) Barbara

And I forgot to add the most important consideration of all: had not received even one vote from the rank and file as their favored candidate.

Clarice

I think that it's altogether possible given the way the races have been going, AB.

If Me goes to Paul and Michigan to Romney and so on and so forth--I do not see a clear majority i certain.

Here's an interesting article on David Brock.ttp://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/02/17/whats-wrong-with-media-matters-founder-david-brock/

I meant Michigan to Santorum ..who is leading there apparently.

I'm glad Brock is the progidiots' problem; at some point they'll wish they'd never met him, if it hasn't happened already.

Ryan recently said he'd give some thought to a VP nomination and wouldn't rule out a convention draft.

Unlike many of the other folks on the Spectator staff, Brock gave me a creepy feeling with much of what he wrote, about Paula Jones, Hillary, sort of an early preview
of what Sullivan would become
