On the merits, HildaBeast should lose for 2 photos alone: 1. reset button; 2. Andrews AFB in front of 4 flag draped Benghazi coffins lying her fat ugly ass off about some nonexistent video. She's a pig.

NK,

What in the world do you have against pigs? It's true they can endure living in filth but they do not spend their lives creating and seeking filth and do not deserve to be used as the comparative in this instance. Pit vipers and scorpions would more closely fit the Bill - or his Red Witch.

The NYT using unnamed sources, claims Sebelius is considering running for the Kansas Senate seat of Pat Roberts.

Can I be the first to say, please please please Cruella run! Run like Forrest Gump Cruella. You are way underwater in approval in Kansas today, and are the face of Obamacare and also administration incompetence. It will help further nationalize the election and you will also provide me with outsized enjoyment on watching you get beat like a drum. Zero was -22 in Kansas last election, and then you screw up a simple website!

I've listened to a good bit of Talk Radio today so I've caught the News Breaks at the top and bottom of the hour.

I keep hearing audio of the ex-City Manager of Bell California, Robert Rizzo, apologizing for stealing millions from the Taxpayers, followed by the Judge coming in and sentencing him to 12 years in Prison.

Unsurprisingly I have never yet heard which Political Party he was a member of.

Anybody know?


BTW, Rizzo is the pig in the Brown Prison PJ's.

If that ghoul could win a senate seat then I'd have to agree with noted nitwit Thomas Franks that there is definitely something the matter with Kansas.

We need to come up with a simile incorporating the life style of anaerobic bacteria working through the solids at the bottom of a septic tank and the common attributes of pit vipers and/or scorpions.

Brit Hume refers to NannyBloomie as God Doubter, which sheds a whole different light on this asinine comment. My guess is that God has some serious doubts about Bloomie, as well.

NK(withnewsoftware)

well even if Bloomie were an observant Jew, he'd be ambivalent about the existence of heaven. But we all know Bloomie is a smartypants Boston-NYC Lib who's too clever to believe in things like Abraham's skymaster. So Bloomie's on his own when he will be judged.

As for proper analogs in the Alien realm, when one might have to resort to Dr. Who:

GMax

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.”

I would say 81% think he is a liar. Either every damn time he opens his mouth or occasionally. It would be fun to ask the only now and then types, how to tell if he is lying on any given occasion. Those 15% are going to be really really pissed off when they figure out how the WON wrecked their party.

We may see this week.

I've said this before, but I think it bears repeating.

One of the weakest structural links of our foreign policy is the transfer of power every 4-8 years and resultant unavoidable changes in policy. Only a brain-dead moron would draw attention to this by something like a "reset button" . . . even if they managed to translate it correctly. The only possible conclusion Lavrov, et al, could draw is that he was dealing with a bunch of lightweight idiots. And, of course, later consultations proved it beyond any possible doubt.

I suppose that's a legacy, of sorts.

wasn't one of the features of her tenure at State that a lot of her portfolio was taken away and given to various area czars she had little control over. In addition, the administration has the nasty habit of appointing ambassadors wholly inappropriate for the position. Caroline Kennedy comes to mind but other campaign flunkies to countries large and small as well. Jim Miller flagged up India and the ambassador in Egypt wasn't all that popular either.

The ADN (Anchorage Daily News) has a story up on the revamping of the questions on the SAT. New SAT: What will those questions look like?

These bits stood out to me:

Each test will include a passage from the U.S. founding documents, such as the Declaration of Independence, or conversations they've inspired, the College Board has said.

To highlight that, one sample question released was adapted from a 1974 speech by Rep. Barbara Jordan, D-Texas, during the impeachment hearings of President Richard Nixon. Test takers must answer questions that best describe Jordan's stance and the main rhetorical effect of a part of the passage.

And there will be additional Political related questions on the new SAT:

In the sample question related to a political candidate, the test taker must first determine from a table which age group had the greatest number of people reporting they had voted. Then, compare the table to another survey to determine which of four statements about voter turnout is correct.

I am confident that the SAT question makers will strive to keep Political bias out of the questions they present to the Students, but it does bother me that they think it necessary in the Nixon Impeachment Question to identify Barbara Jordan as a Democrat. Since it is obvious that Newspapers and Telecasts no longer mention the Political affiliation of any Convicted Democrat, I think it is unfair to include Political Affiliations in an SAT question, since students will never observe it used by the MSM in real life, therefore the evaluators are misguidely setting the students up for expectations from the Media which will sadly disappoint them in the long run..

the first time I ever heard of Donetsk, was an aside in one of those early 90s nuclear apocalyptic films, By Dawn's Early Light, it was the target of a nuke, launched by rogue Russian generals, that provokes a small nuclear exchange, one of the memorable things about it was Rebecca DeMornay's character,

Danube on iPad

"Yet the 36th president affected the lives of most Americans and changed the fabric of today's society more than any president since Franklin D. Roosevelt."

Take very careful note of the word "yet." Hunt takes it as given that if a president "affected the lives of most Americans and changed the fabric of today's society," he has done an unambiguous good. The notion that in the end he has done harm is simply not to be entertained.

Any change is change Al Hunt can believe in.

Captain Hate

Hey guys. Janet knows this from Facebook but Maggie died earlier today. I took her on her afternoon walk and she was doing fine. Then I decided to take her with me for some errands, which she likes to do. I was driving to the ATM when some codger ahead of me decided he needed to be in the right lane and just stopped in the left lane rather than act like a normal human being. I didn't have to lock the brakes but heard a small thump in the back seat, which isn't completely unusual. I went on a couple errands and noticed Maggie didn't greet me when I got back to the car like I'd been away for a month and seemed to be breathing like she had a hair in her throat. I took her home at that point and tried to console her because, other than her breathing being a bit off, she didn't seem to be in pain. I called a vet to see if she might be having a heart attack and she told me the symptoms didn't seem to be for that. A few minutes later she tried to get up and fell back down so I just scooped her up and carried her out to the car. I kept talking to her but about halfway there I could see she wasn't breathing. At that point I just drove her home for Mrs H to give her last goodbyes. When I carried her body out there was blood coming from her mouth so maybe she'd had a punctured lung or something. It's pointless to speculate further but obviously something happened when I put on the brakes suddenly.

I'm not used to this happening; usually my dogs go after a long goodbye and I've had a chance to get ready for it. I'm pretty much a wreck right now and feel like I should've done things differently somehow. I'll probably post some stuff later on but right now am just miserable.

OT example of what I have to put up with my daughter.
Text from me:

Sandie [our friend who works at the local state prison where the majorty of CA's sexual offenders are stowed] says a couple of inmates have escaped from prison. B careful.

A couple of minutes later she texts back;
I know. Thanks.
I am actually giving one of them a ride right now.
He seems nice though! I think he was wrongly accused! Innocent I tell you!

I guess I should be thankful she didn't tell me they were eloping.

JOM after-action report. First JOM meet-up ever, and a total success. Jack is Back, a gracious, gregarious, generous gentleman; Frederick, exactly as portrayed by his father, a real charmer; Mrs. Jack -- a Belgian firecracker! Warm and sparkling. A lovely family and a lovely brunch. JOM friends are good friends.

Oh man CH. That stinks. Hope you don't second guess anything that happened. I have had a hard time getting a new pooch after I lost Ernie my Gordon Setter a few years ago. It's damned tough.

Jack is Back!

CH,

Our prayers are with Maggie. Losing a dog is like losing a friend. As you know we have two friends and miss them dearly while we are away. She will always remember you as much as you remember her. There is a God for dogs and he is just as benevolent for them as he is for us.

Oh CH-we had something similar happen with a cat who had showed no problems. We had had the same experiences as you in the past. Time to come to grips with the health problem.

Happened a couple of months ago. You take the pet's presence for granted and you appreciate how much when you lose them.

I left out the part about one of my kids finding the cat and insisting during ATL rush hour that I must find a vet to do an autopsy to make sure other cats were not in jeopardy. And a good mom who cared would...

Glad you got to say good bye and did not have a shrieking teenager.

Good night to all. Slaap lekker. And thanks, tonto for those gracious remarks. Like you we fellt blessed to meet you and Harry. When we get back its dinner at Chez Jack in Southampton.

Thanks guys; you're the best.

Captain,

My heart breaks for you. Our beloved shelter mutt, Hank, died in my arms 10 years ago. He waited until he could say goodbye to our son, Charlie, who came home from school the night before he died. Charlie was the one who picked him from the no-kill shelter where he had lived for four years. He was the best dog, ever.

I am so sorry.

Terribly, terribly sorry, CH. It's a very hard thing to go through. Doesn't sound to me like there's anything you could or should have done differently.
