Stephanie

First and excited as the daughters golf team is en route to Rome Ga for a tournament starting tomorrow. Berry hosting and the weather is supposed to be low 60s and sunny. Woot! Heading up in the morning and back on Tuesday and then traveling to Charleston Thurs or Friday to pick her up for spring break.

Jane

I'm still recovering from our Saturday night party, but a little birdie told me we should be celebrating JMAX, who not so long ago slayed us all with her superstar soccer ability. GMAX what is she doing now, and will you wish her a happy birthday from all of us?

Ralph L

From SAturday's thread:
Nine Tailors is one of her better books.
If you're a bell ringer. I saw the dreary 70's TV version twice and out of order, and now I can't remember if I every read the book, though I can remember most of the plot details. They say that Sayers fell in love with Wimsey, which explains why Harriet's reluctance always seemed a bit tiresome to me. I prefer Father Brown and Miss Marple.

Captain Hate

Lin has played mainly like garbage today.

daddy

Just wanted to mention that MarkO has been doing great work over at Althouse the last few days, creating 1 Althouse new post simply by one of his comments, and correctly clobbering her as appropriate on a regular basis. Many MayBee sightings also.

Excellent job MarkO.

daddy

To elaborate on the above, Althouse is saying she doesn't understand why Instapundit is upset that douchebag Robert Wright would write a story on Breitbart, admitting he never even met the guy, but quoting Frum and then saying Breitbart died because of his Conservative anger.

MarkO said:

"Is that a schmucky thing to say?"

Yes.

Likely he died from bad genes. Probably his heart stopped and he died peacefully. If any rage contributed, it was the lefty hate and the smirking innuendo from the likes of Wright.

Wright is delivering the Obama theme that conservatives are angry, so angry that they kill themselves with their rage. And, Ann, you are spreading the news."

Correct MarkO.

Part that gets me is that if you read what happened, in his last 2 hours he was at a local bar having a nice conversation with a new Lefty guy he met, who he says had a wonderful conversation with Breitbart for an hour and a half, so much so that they exchanged addresses and promised to get together again, then Andrew left and I think died probabaly while walking home.

Sound angry much to you? Hell no. Sounds like the wonderful behavior that everyone says he always exhibited.

Wish I could figure out how to post at Althouse but I can't. Grrrrrrrrr.

Gmax

Thanks Jane. We are having a Birthday celebration this evening. She is a consultant for Price Waterhouse Coopers and these days dating a 6 foot 9 former college hoopster.

Jane

GMAX,

My 6 ft tall niece married a 6ft7 guy and I am confident their kids will be AT least 8 feet tall.

Have a wonderful time.

Dave (in MA)

What's Big Baby up to? B's and Sox are both on, and my remote has only a 2-way Last button.

(Yes, spring training is higher priority than basketball to me)

MarkO

daddy, what's the issue with posting at Althouse?

Hey, hey, hey. I just saw this on Twitter and, just for now, I don't even care if it's not true. It would be so delicious and so like the left:

@PilgrimsLanded: BREAKING NEWS: SANDRA #FLUKE BEST FRIEND: "I DON'T UNDERSTAND HER STANCE, EVERYONE THAT KNOWS HER KNOWS SHE IS A LES ...

MarkO

Thanks for the kind words, daddy.

Captain Hate

Dealing with Althouse strikes me as similar to dealing with ace except ace didn't vote for El JEFe. Neither of them seems capable of learning from their mistakes.

Jane

Ohh Mark, that's great!

daddy

MarkO,

I am a computer illiterate and I can't ever figure out how to post. I type a comment over there and enter the little secret word and it says I've no account or the wrong account or whatever. Same with Legal Insurrection and a bunch of other sites.

Maybe one of these days when I meet another JOMer I'll bring my Laptop and let him or her set me up. I have no idea how I ever got permission to post here ---that mystery is lost in the mists of time.

Captain Hate

Oh daddy, if you'd only been a Terp.....

daddy

Captain,

I go over there for Henry, bgates, MayBee and MarkO. Plus Ann and Meade did great stuff on Wisconsin politics, and she frequently puts up interesting offbeat stories, but unlike TM's posts, rarely do I ever read whatever she posts as I think politically she is naive.

I think Clarice tagged her well a week or so back, saying essentially that Law Prof Ann is desperately looking for a way to rationalize a second vote for Obama even as the Constitution goes down the drain.

Ignatz

--I have no idea how I ever got permission to post here ---that mystery is lost in the mists of time.--

TM, unlike Althouse likes slumming; he let's any old riff-raff in. Couldn't you tell by the people you meet here?

daddy

Captain,

Terp gals suddenly down by 2 with 11 minutes to go.

I thought your gals would run away with it shortly before the half ended by Tech is hanging tough.

Gmax

Why do you need contraception if you are attracted to the same sex? Am I am showing my naivety or my extraordinary deductive reasoning powers, here.

Sara

Daddy: If you have a gmail account, just sign in with it and you will be good to go at all those sites.

Gmax

So the whole faux hearing with a faux young coed included a faux stated need for contraception? My head is spinning, is there anyone in the media the least bit curious about the acres and acres of astro turf here?

daddy

Headline of the Day:

Cossacks to Guard Churches Against Pussy Riot.

It's from Moscow, reporting on the protest against Putin in today's election. Apparently there were more topless protestors, but I can't find the pics.

daddy

Thx Sara.

What the h#$% is a gmail account?

NK

GMAX. Uh... I ll take a shot here. Male homosexuals very much need condoms, because buggery is the highest risk hiv and std infection activity. The women use an -- eh-- oral dam to protect. Don t blame me those are just the facts.

DrJ

daddy, gmail is Google's web-based email program.

Gmax

NK thanks, I think.

So its not really contraception it disease barrier? I wonder why the democrats dont run with that?

Captain Hate

daddy, the comments at Althouse are pretty good, particularly by our fellow JOMers. You'd think by osmosis she'd learn something.

I invest almost no emotional capital in the lady Terps. That extends back to when I was an undergrad and was dating on of the straight attractive ones; I would infuriate my fellow dorm-mates by challenging any of them to a game of 2 on 2 with her. And that was in basketball, you sickos.

Ignatz

--I would infuriate my fellow dorm-mates by challenging any of them to a game of 2 on 2 with her.--

Got any pics to post?

NK

Very OT-- is anyone watching AIPAC? Glenn reynolds has linked to a site that claims that at his speech today the O'loser blamed the Mullah Bomb on Booosh. Is he s#*+t'n me? O-Loser was gonna say perty things to the Mullahs and like him making the seas drop, the Mullahs would sing KUMBAYA and forget all about that bomb thingy -- you know the one that O-Loser claimed that they were never working on in the first place. If this is true, further proof that O-Loser is a first class punk and SOB!

Ignatz

--The women use an -- eh-- oral dam to protect.--

Is that why Eleanor Roosevelt was promoting all those depression era hydroelectric projects?
There must be a Hillary/Whitewater connection there somewhere too.

Ralph L

True Lesbians have a very low incidence of STDs because they are rarely promiscuous. It's the bisexual women who tend to get slutty, probably because they were interferred with at a young age.

daddy

Uh Oh, Captain,

Looks like their LaQuanisha and Tyauanna are really pushing your Sequoia, Essence and Anjala.

Nail biting time. 65-63 Terpettes with 56 seconds to go.

Danube of Thought

Trying to think back over what I saw Fluke say. Did she ever talk about her own personal need, or was she just referring to the needs of the school's women in general.

There may be good reasons for gay men to want to use condoms, and for gay women to want to use whatever, but contraception is not one of those reasons.

Stephanie

Tiger just posted a 62. Did I hear correctly that that us his lowest day 4 round of his pro career? Wow.

OldTimer

NK, here is the real story of Obama and Israel, an excellent video. How dare Obama say the things he does when it comes to Israel. Outrageous. Just what resides in the heart of this man against Israel and the Jewish people. It's scary.

I can't believe I missed Tiger.

The first time I read that tweet about Fluke I thought it said: "Everyone knows she lies".

Obummer blaming Bush. Yawn... Whenever he is faced with a real crisis in his presidency he results to hiding in a corner and whining about President Bush. What happened to his smart diplomacy with Iran? Iran has no nuclear weapon during President Bush's 8 year term. Now the threat is real under Oblamey because he hasn't done jack-sh-- in the last three years. This guy Obama is a real LOSER!

Congrat's Captain Hate,

Here's her statement, DoT. I'm not sure that's all she said at the "hearing," but she doesn't seem to have implicated to herself personally in this statement.

Breitbart's new page is up. I can't link but you can get there via Big Gov.

that story saddens me beyond words Pagar

Ignatz

--that story saddens me beyond words Pagar--

Chubby,
People in the comments were having a hard time corroborating the story so let's hope it's false.
Seemed to have only one questionable source.

Jack is Back!

Ignatz

Didn't work for me JiB.

Pagar & Chubby,

My money is on the story being false but also worrisome. Iran doesn't want to do more damage to their world opinion at this time while Bibi and Barry are meeting and AIPAC is in full boil. The Minister is going to be a ransom card politically. That story was probably planted to give this more traction in the media (i.e. making him more poltically valuable for trading).

I think they will execute him in a heartbeat if they do not get what they want or we end up taking a hardball stand. So far, he is alive because Barry's bluff is known by all as that, a bluff.

From the transcript:


And that is why, four years ago, I made a commitment to the American people and said that we would use all elements of American power to pressure Iran and prevent it from acquiring a nuclear weapon. And that is what we have done.

When I took office, the efforts to apply pressure on Iran were in tatters. Iran had gone from zero centrifuges spinning to thousands, without facing broad pushback from the world. In the region, Iran was ascendant - increasingly popular and extending its reach. In other words, the Iranian leadership was united and on the move, and the international community was divided about how to go forward.

And so from my very first months in office, we put forward a very clear choice to the Iranian regime: a path that would allow them to rejoin the community of nations if they meet their international obligations, or a path that leads to an escalating series of consequences if they don’t. In fact, our policy of engagement - quickly rebuffed by the Iranian regime - allowed us to rally the international community as never before, to expose Iran’s intransigence and to apply pressure that goes far beyond anything that the United States could do on our own.

Because of our efforts, Iran is under greater pressure than ever before. Some of you will recall, people predicted that Russia and China wouldn’t join us to move toward pressure. They did. And in 2010 the U.N. Security Council overwhelmingly supported a comprehensive sanctions effort. Few thought that sanctions could have an immediate bite on the Iranian regime. They have, slowing the Iranian nuclear program and virtually grinding the Iranian economy to a halt in 2011.

Curiously he doesn't circle the square with how could stuxnet jam up spinning centrifuges with Iran not having any? I'm even less convienced about sanctions.

Gingrich was superb in that clip vs Gregory.

He leaves out the bogus NIE in 2007, that said

I missed the comments because I couldn't bear to read the story, and now I am feeling joy that it is perhaps false, and that there is hope for him. I'm also feeling anger that we have to deal with so much juvenile spoiled brat asinine garbage on the domestic front.

More from the speech (I've only given the transcript a quick skimming):


Moving forward, I would ask that we all remember the weightiness of these issues, the stakes involved for Israel, for America, and for the world. Already, there is too much loose talk of war. Over the last few weeks, such talk has only benefited the Iranian government, by driving up the price of oil, which they depend on to fund their nuclear program. For the sake of Israel’s security, America’s security and the peace and security of the world, now is not the time for bluster. Now is the time to let our increased pressure sink in and to sustain the broad international coalition we have built. Now is the time to heed the timeless advice from Teddy Roosevelt: Speak softly; carry a big stick. And as we do, rest assured that the Iranian government will know our resolve and that our coordination with Israel will continue.

"Why do you need contraception if you are attracted to the same sex?"

Pager,

My view is down deep, any committed Utopian Marxist believer has to be for severe eradication of masses of the human population. The rare moment is when True Believers like Ted Turner are honest enough to admit that we have to reduce the human population to @500,000 people in order to achieve the sustainable perfect world they envision.

They rarely mention it out loud like Turner, instead couching it in Eugenics or Euthanasia or Sibelius's Health Savings thru Contraception blabber, or State Mandated Education to alter the reproductive behavior of our youth in order to achieve proper Green Stewardship of Gaia, but wherever Marxism pops up its ugly head, whether it's Mao's 70 million dead Chinese, Stalin's 30-40 million dead Russians, or Bill Ayer's telling us he needs to liquidate 25 Million in this country, it is all the same.

The bottom line is that they and the Paul Ehrlich's of the world believe they need to eradicate millions if not billions of human beings, and they are fighting like hell to achieve the means of power that in the long run will enable them to achieve their goals.

Frau Freiheit Über Alles!

"When I took office,"

This should be used early and often to hit Obama and the Dems with the reality they have created starting with the Congressional take-over in 2006. That was when the swamp would be drained, the gas prices lowered, corruption removed and ethics restored.

Let's start our own "When Obama took office" refrain.

Clarice

I've thought about it long and hard and decided that from this day forward I shall refer to Nancy Pelosi as Maerose Prizzi. I'm telling you so you'll know the code.

Exactly right, daddy. Here is a WaPo "On Faith" writer making fun of the Republican candidates for their large families.

So many great posts on these threads. Matt has really been on fire. Lots of good ones though...ya'll are wonderful.

daddy

narciso,

Just watched your link to Gingrich versus Gregory.

Thanks for that. That was magnificent.

I will vote for whomever is ABO in the General, but that clip is why I will not yet toss in the towel on Gingrich. Santorum and Romney and Paul are incapable of responding in that manner, and I have to go with the guy who can and does respond in that manner.

Jane

Paul, I thought the same thing about Gingrich. I saw him on Stephanopolis too and he also did a good job.

Danube of Thought

"New York - A flower company is the 7th advertiser to pull its ads from conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh's radio program in the wake of comments he made about a law student who testified about birth control policy. ProFlowers said Sunday on its Facebook page that it has suspended advertising on Limbaugh's program because his comments about Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke 'went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company.'"

That's 500 million not 500 thousand.

Why is it that so many talk radio commercials are by such lousy companies? Rush used to have Tanya Roberts pitching Tahiti Village (a notorious time share) all the time.

PaulL

Okay, how to vote in Ohio?

I vastly prefer Romney to Santorum but vastly prefer Gingrich over both of them, but Gingrich doesn't have a chance to win Ohio. I guess it's better to vote Romney to stop Santorum but I sure would like to vote Gingrich.

Frau Freiheit Über Alles!

Clarice, David Kahane in his NRO article certainly agrees with you, but isn't "Bal'mer's Bela" even more sinister than Maerose?

" By what right did she (Nancy Pelossi) destroy what’s left of our tattered cover of mainstream reasonableness by saying, “The inconceivable to you is the inevitable to us”?
She was speaking of gay marriage, an idea you bigots have thought was crazy for the past several thousand years, and that was once just a gleam in daddy Andrew Sullivan’s eye, but now has become a litmus test for right-thinking progressives everywhere.
...
Look how fast the word “contraception” — which hasn’t been heard in the land since my father, the sainted “Che” Kahane, was a free-loving pup back at UC Berkeley and Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow — went from a wacky debate question by a Clinton hack posing as a journalist to a national political issue in the blink of an eye. It’s an issue entirely manufactured by our media wing, which works in tandem with Jake Lingle to ensure that both sides of the mighty Axelrod/Obama Reelect Machine are working smoothly.

And to what purpose? Why, to make the inconceivable the inevitable. Which is precisely what we intend to do from 2013 on, which I think I can best explain to you by putting it in terms we can all understand, especially me: Fundamental Change II: This Time, the Inconceivable is Inevitable — and Very, Very Personal.

Once this sham of an election is safely past, abandon all hope. But get ready for plenty of change.

"Ohio Gov. John Kasich said thanks but no thanks to immediate federal disaster relief Saturday, even as governors in Indiana and Kentucky welcomed the help.

Kasich did not rule out asking for assistance later, but his decision means tornado-ravaged towns in Ohio will not get federal aid now and are not eligible at this time for potentially millions of dollars in payments and loans.

The governor said Ohio can respond to the crisis without federal help and he would not ask federal authorities to declare the region a disaster area.

“I believe that we can handle this,” Kasich said while visiting a shelter for storm victims at New Richmond High School. “We’ll have down here all the assets of the state.”

Extraneus

Rush will probably have a banner day tomorrow, but if the statement I linked at 4:42 was the only thing Sandra Fluke said at that "hearing," people who said Rush was out of line were right. Yes, she implied that 40% of the Georgetown ladies are probably nymphos, but she didn't refer to herself or her own need for contraception, and instead used a number of other sob stories related to real health issues that can supposedly be addressed with bc pills.

Rush has to fly by the seat of his pants sometimes in order to do what he does so well, but this time it seems he really did step on it and should have focused on the larger issue that cathyf raised about the gov't edging out private insurance.

Does anyone know if she made further comments, and if any were specifically related to her own need for bc pills or "contraception"?
