masterful, clarice.....

and I am very happy the Olympics look to conclude in peace.

GMax

Paul Ryan rocks. A snippet from yesterday:

We promise equal opportunity, not equal outcomes. This idea is founded on the principles of liberty, freedom, free enterprise, self-determination and government by consent of the governed. This idea is under assault.
Jane - talk is cheap!

Ryan is almost lyrical in his ad libbing. It's because he understands this country and what he believes in. I am so in love.

Jack is Back

narciso,

LOL. What a dolt. BTW, have you heard who plays Obama in the "I Killed Bin Laden With My Own Hands" movie??

In other sports news, Rory McIlroy is well on his way to winning the PGA (if Ian Poulter will allow him) and become the new Number ! in the world. Compelling golf from a young man with a big future.

/Now that I have hexed he's lucky if he finishes:)

hit and run

Number ! in the world would be quite an achievement.

Jack is Back

Hit,

It would put an exclamation on his achievement, doncha know.

narciso

Assuming he's in the main cast of ZD 30, this guy, from the IMDB

Rory McIlroy won't really be #1 until he gets a Swedish bikini model wife and a bushelfull of mistresses.

Sara

Hit: I was going to tell you on the other thread that Fox has carried each stop in NC, so you can probably watch on a cSPAN repeat or as a video clip from the Romney campaign or YouTube.

MarkO

May Tiger never win again.

bgates

have you heard who plays Obama in the "I Killed Bin Laden With My Own Hands" movie??

Why should the movie have to find someone else to pretend to be the President, when Obama is already pretending to be the President?

I'm pretty sure he'll be in it himself, because the imdb page says the release has been pushed back to December, and nobody else on the left would screw up the schedule badly enough to postpone it until after the election.

Obama's going to do all the dialog, in shots filmed from the neck up. Then in the action scenes they'll use his normal pair of interchangeable stunt doubles, Lawrence Taylor and Michelle.

Obama's not only starring, he declared that he's a better screenwriter than the screenwriters and added a big dramatic speech for himself. I've heard it described as "Gary Cooper's courtroom speech from 'The Fountainhead', if 'The Fountainhead' had been written by Bill Ayers and Gary Cooper had been a giant asshole".

GMax

Debbie Does America

What were they thinking when they made this dimbulb the head of the DNC? Actually, I think no one else wanted the job. Still she is a gift that keeps on giving.


MarkO

LOL, bgates.

Sara:

Thanks Sara! I don't get cspan out here in the driveway, alas. My old neighbor had a tv in his garage, but after he left, I've had to suffer through just listening to the cicadas and birds.

MarkO

Who plays Valerie Jarrett, and do they use a body double in the spanking scenes?

Sara

I thought I read that Obama wasn't even in the movie, but I just tried to find it and can't, so maybe I just read someone's joke.

Sara

What were they thinking when they made this dimbulb the head of the DNC?

Obama.

I think the heads of RNC and DNC are picked by the newly elected president or at least they put the names up for the vote.

The RNC has had its share of dunderheads, but she is the worst.

Janet

Debbie & Joe Biden seem alike. Both will do whatever they are told to do no matter how stupid.

centralcal

Ha Ha Ha - even in Chicago!

At Obama fundraiser in Chicago. Admission only $51, but room is half full.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

I don't know German very well anymore despite three years in college, but when I see "Luftmensch" I think airhead. Perfect, Clarice.

I think the collective JOM first impression yesterday has been borne out by the desperately exploding crania of the MSM this morning. Even Althouse has a delicious takedown of the the ever odious Robin Givhan's snide attempt to make Ryan's selection unveiling a racial issue.

Jane - talk is cheap!

May Tiger never win again.

I still like Tiger.

Reince Preibus said today Obama has blood on his hands because he stole $700b from medicare.

That's a great message. Ryan will save it, Obama is destroying it.

centralcal

...the ever odious Robin Givhan...

Well said, Jim R. I read Althouse earlier this am, and you are so right, it was a great takedown by her.

Clarice

Thanks, TM.
bgates, you are the man!

Robin Givhan, is it? Got to run over there..she's such a nasty bitch.

Sara

Since it is reported that Romney made his decision on Paul Ryan back on Aug. 1st, I was curious what Tom was posting about at JOM.

August 1st was one post on Judge Lester refusing to recuse himself and another on how Russ Douhat predicted Romney would go dull with Portman.

August 2nd was devoted to Badminton.

centralcal

I am so glad Romney didn't go dull! We ABOers and full-fledged Romneyites would have all been okay with it. But, wowza, look at how the lines have grown at every speaking venue this weekend! Not sure boring would have pulled that off.

tcb

"I am so glad Romney didn't go dull! ...But, wowza, look at how the lines have grown at every speaking venue this weekend! Not sure boring would have pulled that off."

Palin drew crowds as well with McCain and look what happened. What's different this time?

Now I think Romney is better than McCain and Ryan is better than Palin (for what we need now), but there are a lot of idiots out there where negative ads are their main news source.

centralcal

Here is a brief CBS snippet of tonight's 60 Minutes (I didn't have to watch it on the TeeVee, either) - well, of course, it is only a transcript with a terrific photo.

Go Team!

centralcal

Palin drew crowds as well with McCain and look what happened. What's different this time?

Three and 3/4 years of an Obama administration! Our worst fears not only realized, but some fears we didn't know enough to have also appeared.

The Tea Party and 2010 happened half-way through, when folks really started getting the Chicago Messiah's message loud and clear. Patriots realized that they can make a difference.

Obama idol worshipers have decreased in numbers, not increased.

narciso

Well the lesson, is almost never take Douthat seriously, as I proferred examples on the second page of that thread, the knives were out then for Sarah, a black swan event that
never happens in a election year, swamped the
season, and McCain took a dive.

Danube of Thought

"Palin drew crowds as well with McCain "

But they didn't outdraw Obama. Not close.

I think for Obama to be ousted by Paul Ryan would be one of the most sublimely condign punishments ever inflicted in American politics.

Danube of Thought

My prayer for Woods is that for the remainder of his life he be in contention in every major but never win.

narciso

I know we are not supposed not to dwell on the past, too deeply, but ignoring it completely doesn't work either;

Btw, the whereabouts of a certain prince seem to have become a 'dead letter'

GMax

McCain was such a nightmare rushing back to solve a crisis he had no answer for, and refusing to fight back, that even Palin could not drag his sorry butt across the finish line and he still got 46%.

Aint no cause for despair now, in fact quite your bitchin' get out your wallet and support some candidates and maybe find a way to volunteer for the good guys campaigns.

Marcia in Phoenix

Did anyone see the clip of the President at his event today? Clearly he had not slept a wink last night, and his torment was particularly apparent when he chose to steal the vocabulary of the R-R campaign (is he also afflicted with Zakariania??)to talk about the choice between two visions for the country. He was trying to adopt the lingo of a fiscal conservative and deficit hawk, and God forbid the muddle falls for that deception.

Extraneus

Who plays Valerie Jarrett, and do they use a body double in the spanking scenes?

lol

Tcb

Yes, cc / dot, I agree Obama is drawing smaller crowds thanks to his performance. I was worried before nov 2010 elections, about prosser in WI and walker in recall and those turned out ok. And I do have a better gut feeling this time than with McCain. Looking forward to debates and ads.

Jack is Back

You guys are wrong about Tiger. If he plays better than the other guys he wins. That's the way it is in golf. Forget his indiscretions and your personal opinion of him, he is a great golfer who changed the game for the guys winning today. Gary Player tried to tie fitness, nutrition and practice to winning but it didn't take with the stay up late and booze generation but not now. Today you have the most fit, athletic generation of golfers ever and watch the new generation coming up.

Tiger has done for golf what Palin did for conservatism - they made it something to achieve and be respected. McIlroy is who he is because he watched Tiger and said, I want to do that.

If you know golf like I do then you understand where I come from.

Extraneus

OT, but I used to check HotAir on a regular basis. Recent visits have been met with what I consider to be beyond the pale advertizing - ads that automatically play video with sound. I'm not going back there until someone reports that they've stopped doing that.

Clarice

Yeah, narciso, where the heck is Bandar? You'd think the Saudi Intel chief would be so important that with rumors of his emise that have him snapped at a ribbon cutting ceremony or something.

Ranger

He was trying to adopt the lingo of a fiscal conservative and deficit hawk, and God forbid the muddle falls for that deception.

Well, they fell for it last time because he had no record. But when people hear those words "My plan calls for net spending cuts" with an overlay of how spending has shot up nearly 25%, I don't think his talk of "paying down the debt" will get him much muddle support.

GMax

Marcia:

Who is going to believe the Party of no budget in over 1000 days is for fiscal sanity. Meanwhile the Republicans have a guy on the ticket who has thought through a plan to get us out of the ditch and back to a sustainable plane.

Zero cant make that pitch anywhere except in front of carefully selected crowds, i.e. Democrats.

Jane - talk is cheap!

Recent visits have been met with what I consider to be beyond the pale advertizing - ads that automatically play video with sound.

I sent an email about a month ago saying the exact same thing and never heard back.

Obama had a campaign stop today. He charged $51 to get in and the room was only 1/2 full.

On Fox all anyone can say is how far behind Romney is.

Jack is Back

Now may be the time for a new competitor for Fox to come to the fore. I have noticed how very subtly they have gone right to center-right in a few months.

/We are all Shep Smith now

(A) nuther Bub

I am so in love.

Yes!

I thought of you yesterday, Jane, when -- in answer to Andrea Mitchell's comment that Paul Ryan is wrong for women -- some babe tweeted: "Yeah, just like chocolate is wrong for women."

Was that you?

Jack is Back

For rse,

One more thing. You cannot graduate from HS if you cannot sing the National Anthem:)

How can an athlete represent our country and can't even sing the anthem? Regrettable.

Rick Ballard

Fox is an advertising sales platform. Which candidate is spending like a drunken fool on advertising in a desperate effort to create or save a losing 43% approval rating?

I'm not sure searching for chaste hookers is a good use of time.

Jane - talk is cheap!

Was that you?

It should have been!

I hate shep smith

centralcal

Marcia in Phoenix! You are able to comment!

Extraneus, not only HotAir but, also at Daily Caller.

Do you think it is some setting on our browser or is it the blog site forcing their ads on us?

Clarice

Whatever it is, cc, it is very annoying. I tried twice today to see a video on hot air only to get an ad instead.

centralcal

Here is a short CBS video clip of tonight's 60 Minutes:

Rommey, Ryan Answer Critics

From the WSJ's live blog (live blog? really?) we also get this:

Fashion twins already -- Romney and Ryan appear on “60 Minutes” wearing nearly-identical blue checked shirts and blue blazers with an American flag pin on their respective left lapels, according to a photo of the interview posted on the CBS website.
hit and run

JiB:
If he plays better than the other guys he wins. That's the way it is in golf.

That is a really, really deep insight.

Jane - talk is cheap!

Everyone is saying that no one cares about Medicare and Romney should be talking about jobs. At the far left web site I go to, entitlements are everything. They don't want jobs they want gimmes. For the first time they know that Obama stole $700 billion out of medicare, and other entitlements are threatened. (They think it must be for their own good but they can't quite figure out why.)

Yesterday they hated Romney. Today they would vote for Romney if Ryan wasn't on the ticket - I would bet a great deal that no one has ever heard of Ryan before yesterday but the Huffington post says he is "extreme".

They will all vote for Obama, but the wakening is interesting to watch.

One of the biggest assholes bet me $100 that Scott Walker would lose the recall. He refused to pay. I love watching all his suffering since most of the great things going on are coming from his state.

Sara

I have noticed how very subtly they have gone right to center-right in a few months.

If that were true, I wouldn't be complaining about them hour to hour since I'm a pragmatic center-right Republican with libertarian leanings.

hit and run

Jane:
One of the biggest assholes bet me $100 that Scott Walker would lose the recall. He refused to pay.

Is he in Mass? I ask because I would seriously consider sending TC to meet him and gently suggest he pay up. I'm just saying, one look at TC would do the trick.

hit and run

My kitchen is done, I think the smells are gone. My yard is done. I need to make mom-in-law's bed before I go to bed, but I'm feeling pretty good about where things are at right now. I should probably check the toilets and scrub them a bit too. Be right back.

centralcal

Well, I went to HotAir and to Daily Caller since I hadn't visited since early this morning. HotAir's ad(s) were running (2 of them), but no sound.

Same at Daily Caller. However, my browser froze at D.C., which reminded me that it does it every time I go there in the last few days. Not having any problems on any other site, nor with multiple tabs active.

Extraneus

It's the site, cc, not the browser. Surely they know the ads are intrusive, but apparently they're betting that the financials will work out even with fewer visitors. We'll see, but I hope they don't mind losing me in the meantime.

centralcal

Thanks for that info, Ext. I always wonder if there is some browser setting that I need to fiddle with - if I even knew what setting that was! *eyeroll*

OldTimer

hit...I hope you didn't forget to water the potted plants and check for dust bunnies under the beds... :)

RE: HotAir

Somehow I was able to block the videos/audios from running in my browser. But, I can't remember what I did. Maybe ad-blocking a specific site?

Try right-clicking on the offending content and see if you a blocking option.

hit and run

Heh. Thanks OldTimer, now I've got more to do. No, really, thanks.

OldTimer

Ryan has provided the missing ingredient to spice up the Romney campaign cake - more pictures at LI of eager November voters. This is all very encouraging...

I can't begin to describe how happy I am that hit will no longer be home alone without supervision of any sort.

DrJ

hit,

For a nice touch consider some cut flowers for the dining table. In a vase. With water.

Jane - talk is cheap!

Is he in Mass?

He's in Wisconsin - Henry would have to do it.

Captain Hate

Tiger has done for golf what Palin did for conservatism - they made it something to achieve and be respected. McIlroy is who he is because he watched Tiger and said, I want to do that.

Oh for God sake. Tiger created a buzz for the sport, which some here and the MFM have fallen for hook line and sinker, but the modern era of golf didn't begin with him and it won't end with him either. He's upped the exposure of the game but other than that I'm not really sure history will regard him as being as great for the sport as you automatically are assuming.

He's a very very good golfer and one of the best of all time.

Extraneus

Of course I liked his positions on the economy and his takedown of Obama during the health care show, but I haven't read much on Ryan or seen any bio stuff lately. Do I have this right?

1. "A" rating from the NRA?
2. Uncompromisingly pro-life?
3. His professed most influential author is Ayn Rand, and he gives out copies of "Atlas Shrugged" to his interns?

If so, I have to hand it to Romney for making this pick. I hope he didn't do it to gain cred with conservatives in order to tack left.

Jane - talk is cheap!

Boy that Rory Mcellroy is really really amazing isn't he JIB? The announcers are beside themselves.

Rick Ballard

"He's in Wisconsin - Henry would have to do it."

Jane,

Don Tomaso could handle it with a phone call. La famiglia Collini is as connected as it is respected.

Jack is Back

Well Hit, I have deep insight in golf since I probably know more about it than you do and play to a scratch handicap ever since I was 12, and officiate Florida golf tournaments. So, if you'd like a round and back up your snark, I have a game for you. Do you even play golf or just sit in your lawn chair drinking vodka all night?

narciso

Nom it's a NewsCorp spread problem, Goodwin, who broke out of his Cave, at the Daily News,
was still taking that silly +9 D Fox poll seriously, as a symptom of Romney's desperation, that forced him to pick Ryan, I know brand loyalty, but still.

Jane - talk is cheap!

Ext,

He did it because he is planning to fix the economy and he means it. Lots of people think it will sink his run and make the republicans lose the house and the senate (Pat Caddell, Doug Shone etc) but he's doing it.

tcb

Live Romney/Ryan event, Waukesha, WI 6pm Central / 7pm Eastern.

WI AG on stage now. Lt Gov up next. Then Walker??? Then Ryan.

Extraneus

I hope so, Jane.

(Uh oh. A golf war?)

jimmyk

"Ryan is almost lyrical in his ad libbing."

As someone here once said (possibly me): it's so much easier to speak when it's the truth, and you genuinely believe what you're saying.

Extraneus

Yeah, Jimmy, and when you know what you're talking about.

DrJ

Jane,

I think it is about time the country has the entitlement state put in their laps and the ramifications spelled out. Greece. Spain. Italy. Ireland. Argentina. France. The world is going broke, and Obama blithely ignores it all.

At first I was with jimmyk: Ryan would be better in the house on the budget committee. But if his selection forces the public to become aware of it, then maybe it really was a great choice.

Time will tell. The push-back will be hard and dirty.

Jane - talk is cheap!

I'm about to watch 60 minutes, while listening to the Wisconsin rally and posting here.

Think I can do it?

Jane - talk is cheap!

Dr J,

We either win or we are done. I think we can win.

hit and run

I have no doubt that compared to me, you are God's gift to golf, JiB.

I used to play a lot, working at a couple of courses back in the day. I never got better than an 8 handicap, and today I'm probably 18, though I only play a couple times a year, so that's just a guess.

How any of that makes your observation any less Yogi-esque escapes me.

I'm sorry my snark was not received in the manner it was intended. The fault lies with me and me alone.

But that's how I roll.

Jack is Back

The Wannamaker is as big as Rory who shoots 66 on a Pete Dye masterpiece. Controlled his trajectory, made putts and stayed relative free of trouble. A true talent. Great swing and with that who needs a short game. NIcklaus didn't.

DrJ

I agree, Jane, but it will be really dirty. I think WI was a trial run -- the national case will be much, much worse. I hope the electorate responds as those in WI did.

Sara

Fashion twins already

In High Point, Romney, Ryan, their Sen. candidate and one other man were all on stage together and I wondered if they had coordinated because it was a sea of light blue shirts and dark pants.

NJ Jan

JANE,

Yes!!! I'm counting on it because my reporting plan is "I agree with Jane".

Jane - talk is cheap!

it will be really dirty.

I'm afraid of violence frankly. It's going to be the worst we have ever seen and they will be willing to do a lot of things we aren't. And the media will let them.

The American people are the only hope.

Sara

What channel is the WI rally?

Jack is Back

Hit,

I pass on one snark but that was your second today on some comment I made. You need to know I take it personally since its innocent. We are not as internet intelligent as you think you are. I think you look for shit on people and like to lay the lettuce. Back off because you are acting like a real prick.

Sara

Someone must be happy about Ryan, there have been overflow crowds all day and yesterday Romney raised $4 million in 7 hours after the announcement.

hit and run

Fine, JiB, I'll back off. I didn't mean anything by it. I really didn't. A little fun on a Sunday afternoon went too far. I'm sorry. The fact that you never defended your statement will just have to be left standing.

mockmook

Why are people continually talking about what Ryan Romney are wearing? Weird.

jimmyk

"My prayer for Woods is that for the remainder of his life he be in contention in every major but never win."

Reminds me of one of those old Yiddish curses: May you lose all your teeth but one. And that one should have an abscess.

(And for hit: I use quotes instead of italics only when posting from a phone, where html is a pain. That's how I roll.)

hit and run

Jimmyk, see my notes on Dot's use of quotes to know that I am in grateful admiration for their use.

narciso

henry would likely be there, Waukesha is close to Brookfield, right

Sara

Hit: You've been kind of caustic at different times all this past week. I attribute it to you being horny as hell. :)

tcb

Bob Shaver on 60 minutes is struggling to smile during the interview.

Jack is Back

Hit,

So, in your world I have to defend a statement that stands? That is all you have? You are who you are and I know exactly what to expect from you from now on. Disappointed since I thought you were a special poster here but I guess I was wrong. No excuses, sir. you were wrong. Period.

Sara

Why are people continually talking about what Ryan Romney are wearing?

Why not?

And women have to listen to it all the time, why should men not get the same?

NJ Jan

Romney seems relaxed, natural and is smiling. Playing off each other very well
