I think I can, I think I can.

'quantom leap' is small? Ask that particle.

Good morning everyone!

Jane (Better a crate than a plate)

Seems like a Dog Day afternoon morning in these parts.

cboldt

Astronomical!

RichatUF

More like a Groundhog Day. That fat rat was a liar.

Bruce

I can see how the Olbermanns and Stephanopouloses of the world would love the fun with dogs to go away. It was fine while it helped their cause, but now that it has been turned around against their candidate, it has Jumped the Shark, at least according to the later, and should stop. Immediately.

Captain Hate

You'd think that a Moo U grad might welcome a life form that's more in his school's area of expertise.

Captain Hate

the “dog-gate” controversies have gotten out of hand.

Translated Bathtub Boy: My former employees no longer control the narrative and maybe they'll let me back if I witlessly shill for them.

It's looking like a very rare "April is colder than March" year in NE Ahia.

Donald

Ive stumbled into This Week twice in the last month or so.

Both times when I skipped church. I gotta go more, though I did laugh at Olbersouche's pathetic attempt at trying to tone down his shtick to get work.

More from George Stuffleupagus, after declaring the dog-wars over:

"But the truth is come November voters will know that Romney is a good family man who has nothing against dogs. And voters will know that President Obama is not a Muslim, or a socialist or someone that hates America, but rather a patriotic president"

narciso

Ah Keefums, it should be a criminal offense to inflict that level of stupidity, that early
in the morning

rehearsal for Duke and Duke training

Jane (Better a crate than a plate)

The dog wars have just begun.

Good morning. A surprisingly easy peasy little test - only 13 questions - and only 8% (supposedly) got 100% correct (which was my score and I am certain will true of everyone who comments). From Newsbusters:


The News IQ Quiz by Pew Research

Jane (Better a crate than a plate)

Geez CC, that shows you what we are up against.

cindyk

CC - I too scored 100% BEFORE my first cup of coffee. Are you kidding?! How can it be that not everyone scores 100%? (Oops - unfortunately at least 48% of the voting population - SIGH!)

Melinda Romanoff

c-cal-

I'm with you, an 8%-er.

centralcal

Pretty pathetic, isn't it Jane? Good grief.

narciso

That was scarier than 'Cabin in the Woods', 'words fail, chtluthu facepalm'

cboldt

I answered them all wrong on purpose, so I'm in that elite 4% group.

Jane (Better a crate than a plate)

WEll if we keep taking it we should raise that 8% number.

How stupid are americans?

jimmyk

Talk about jumping the shark, who could stand to watch that bunch of self-righteous blowhards for more than 20 seconds without throwing something at the TV? At least back in the day, David Brinkley always seemed to have a certain air of not taking himself so seriously.

But agreed that all of the hand-wringing seems to be brought on by the Republicans actually fighting fire with fire.

kave

cc-
100% also

Melinda Romanoff

Jane-

There will be no change in that 8% figure. Data pool is already locked.

jimmyk

Only 67% of college graduates answered that Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.

DebinNC

Warning: Actual reporting sited
Unless Selena Zito of the The Pittsburgh Tribune is the token conservative, I'm very heartened to see this article on Obama's message fail, especially given the attention, and public money, he's lavished on Ohio. I admire John Kasich enormously, and hope folks in OH give him the credit he's earned.

rse

Nice of George to assert true descriptions of romney with at least 2 false statements about BO and then declare an equivalence.

Jane-I have to read some more nonsense and now I have a nasty hot tub vision messing with my concentration.

100% as well. On your question of ignorance Jane, the best answer is very but not as dumb as BO and arne are determined to make us in the future.

centralcal

Reading Michael Walsh this morning at NRO I was struck by how Clarice-esque he sounded. A sample:

In our version of the Roman Republic, it’s the Senate that’s doing the fiddling while Nero is off playing golf, partying, vacationing, or dining on dog meat. Meanwhile, the country burns and the peasants are revolting. What’s desperately needed is a mighty wind to blow away the detritus, and since it’s obviously not going to start on the left, it might as well begin with Hatch and Lugar. The GOP bonzes obviously didn’t get the message in 2010; the uncomfortable view from the top of the pike may help focus their attention.
centralcal

Oh dear, JeanD, another scary chart and poll. So depressing.

Chubby

the stats about public ignorance are a song of joy to Democrat organizers, who currently fool some of the people all the time, but are working to fool all the people all the time.

GMAX

Sure sign progs are losing the debate, when they want to "refocus" on "real issues". What real issues Keith? Unemployment, the deficit or gasoline prices? Or do you mean how many wifes someones ggf may have had? Turd.

Clarice

Lugar may be a goner, but I think Hatch will win again--maybe a bit smarter the next time around.

Rob Crawford

I admire John Kasich enormously, and hope folks in OH give him the credit he's earned.

Dunno, Deb. His latest drive is a classic "stepped on his own crank" maneuver. He wanted to get back the support of the law enforcement unions, so he supported a bill they wanted on "secret compartments" in cars. Supposedly it's about drug smuggling...

Unfortunately, the wording of the bill was so vague that you could honestly interpret a trailer hitched to a car as a "hidden compartment".

matt

I'm glad that Keith is doggedly covering this story. Shouldn't he be doing the weather in the Aleutians by now?

And Central, any writer who uses the phrase GOP bonze is A okay in my book.

DebinNC

Oh dear, Rob. There's always the "rest of the story", I guess.

Threadkiller

Turns out Michelle found something healthy he can't resist:

Porchlight

It was amusing how the Pew quiz characterized typically Democratic positions in positive words and Republican positions in negative terms.

Republicans "restrict access"
Democrats "expand rights"

etc.

Also, Democratic positions were more fleshed out and justified - for example, increasing taxes "to reduce the federal deficit."

Janet

((“It raises the level of absurdity to something exponential,” Olbermann said on “This Week” about the Romney campaign criticizing Obama for consuming dog meat when he was 6 years old.))

6 yrs. old...I read Dreams (didn't remember the dog eating story), but was taken by the "memories" attributed to child Obama. What do you remember from 1st grade?...whole conversations with adults, thoughts on worldly injustice? So much of the book is just total BS.
I don't have my copy here, but at home I penciled in the age of Obama at certain points. The book is absurd.

Thomas Collins

I scored 100%. Some of the questions assumed facts not in evidence. For example, it is not at all clear that increasing marginal tax rates on high income people will reduce the deficit. High income people will take steps to reduce reportable income on the Form 1040. In addition, higher marginal tax rates will reduce investment that generates economic growth. Finally, the phony "we've reduced the deficit by socking the rich" meme itself takes pressure off Congress to pass essential Ryan-Wyden type entitlement reform measures.

Jane (Better a crate than a plate)

You took a different test than I did TC

No, no, it can't be.

Actual reporting sighted. No wonder it's no longer visible.
==================

Clarice

If you read only one article this week, let it be this one.
http://pjmedia.com/victordavishanson/it-was-the-power-stupid/

Jane (Better a crate than a plate)

Geez Clarice, now you bummed me out.

Clarice

Why, Jane?

centralcal

Probably when you said Hatch would still win?

Clarice

I..He will win..And if Mark Levin and Hannity support him, how bad can he be?

Clarice

Sarah Palin endorses him, too.

centralcal

No personal comment on Hatch, just a guess at what Jane might have been referring to.

Have Blue

centralcal - Scored a 100% on the quiz. Granted it was after my first cup of coffee and well into the second.

First question was triple negative??

Okay a double. Wich party is more supportive of restricting access.

Janet

This is funny. LUN

Dave (in MA)

Olberdouche thinks that the high gas prices are a conspiracy against Obama. Right. The guy who ran on a platform of higher energy prices, who appointed a guy for Energy Secretary who said that he wanted to see $8/g or higher gas, who has spent his presidency shutting down domestic oil sources. He's a victim of a conspiracy. Got it.

sbw

Can someone give a short pro-con for Hatch. My remembery is so elusive, but I would have guessed he was a RINO.

Prove me wrong.

Janet

Conservative Christians doing our part...a Pray for Bo video. LUN

Jane (Better a crate than a plate)

OMG Janet, that is WONDERFUL!

daddy

RSE,

I don't know how you are able to dive in that fetid Leftist swamp day after day after day. That would depress me something horrible. But somebody has to do it and thank goodness it ain't me.

Thanks for doing it and wish I could send good feelings to you to keep you upbeat. I am sure many here admire your efforts.
