They mighty hordes of Kos via Tim Blair

You are only 1,000 people at the Riviera Hotel. Check the attendance at these conventions, also scheduled for Vegas this month:

* Western States Roofing Contractors Association: 4,000
* Las Vegas Hair & Nail: 12,000
* Electrical Apparatus Service Association: 4,000
* Intl Esthetics Cosmetics & Spa Conference: 33,000
* Coffee Fest: 8,000
* Casino Chips & Gaming Token Collectors: 5,000
* Truck Show: 30,000

Kinda puts this little party in perspective, doesn’t it?


You are such a bourgeois barbarian PUK

Rick Ballard


No fair.

Those other groups actually do things. Or make things. They have a utility to their existence.

Kos is in another category altogether. I'm having trouble figuring out exactly how to describe the category without descent into references to onanistic practices.

"Sterile futilists"?

Lew Clark

I can go to Roswell once a year and see the same kind of show displayed by a bunch of people who are much more in touch with reality, more intelligent, and a lot more fun and interesting. So no thanks to the KOSkies brand of "reality“!


Certainly Clarice,My crack division of Las Vegas Hair & Nail can take down the kossacks any day.On the other hand,catering reports a record number for breakfast,but housekeeping says they are down on towels.

I quite like Futile Sterilists,to paraphrase GBS or some other nitwit,"I have seen the futile and they're jerks".


There is a correction to the figures,some thought it was two weeks ago,some thought it was next week the rest are still hitching,apart from those whose berkenstocks are at the menders.


Thanks for the link, Tom, but I'm not the man on the scene. I'm just relaying his dispatches.


Allah, still grateful for those links you put on at hotair, even if they aren't your own words.


I think it would have been fun if some of the JustOneMinute personalities were on that Plame panel (TM, Clarice, Jeff, Cecil, Kim). I could have watched a JOM/KOS panel for hours.


Not me! But it would be interesting to have such a panel PLUS Byron York!

Allah has a new post about the YKOS.


They do make stuff....as anyone knows there is a HUGE market for tinfoil hats....


Hahahaha!! Count me as an exception.

Here is the transcript of yesterday's "Meet the Press" with the KOS guy and Byron York:

Meet the Press transcript for June 11, 2003


your idea is a good one. However I would put my money on Rick,clarice PeterUK, Gary ,Specter, TS. and Lurker to make the case and go toe to toe with the Kos Kids!


Maryrose,I know this place in the desert....


I should have also included Cecil, Kim and Sue as well;always to the point and on topic.


Plus all potential JOM panelists have something all Kos Kids lack; A sense of humor.


Are you drawing a line in the sand?

Rick Ballard

That's kind, Maryrose, but I could never attend. Those CSI Las Vegas guys are just too damned good.


I tell you I have gotten a big kick out of all the press about this convention. It's had me laughing for days. I can only hope they do it next year too.


No,Maryrose,but they never find the croupiers caught cheating.


Come now Mr Ballard,we could show them the Hoover dam,Lake Mead,enough tinfoil in their Birkenstocks.

Rick Ballard

Mr Uk,

As a purely practical political matter they've already done it to themselves. They will be as well remembered as Vallandigham and for precisely the same reasons.

Michael Barone summed it up rather nicely today. Their efforts are similiar to those of Pyrrhus - except that Pyrrhus actually won - twice if I recall correctly. So he's two up on Mowlett's Ass - long may he bray.


So the Copperheads have degenerated into foilheads?


Given their record I hope KOS supports lots and lots of candidates in this next cycle - well...demoncratic candidates that is.


"That's kind, Maryrose, but I could never attend. Those CSI Las Vegas guys are just too damned good."

Thank you very much. I do better with written debate.

If one can do an online chat debate, Rick Ballard might reconsider. ;)


Specter, might check Huffington site. There's one guy that finally made the switch from the left to right.

Hey, great news reported by Strata-sphere. I read some article that compares the key milestones of WWII that lead to the conclusion of WWII. Some sees Zarq's death as a key milestone.

Now the coalition team is going after the Taliban. Soon we should find OBL, Omar, and Zarahiwi.


US Cracks Down On Taliban AND OBL!!


Specter, here's the link:

Why I Left the Left


I can't believe the article about one of the Guantanamo Suicides being not informed he was scheduled for release as featured at talkleft.

I actually learn a lot from reading conservative blogs, and sometimes they change my mind, but anyone who simply dismisses a Democrat's call for a balanced budget with a snicker (as this Allahpundit character does at the beginning of the post) loses all credibility with me.

For 30 years, national debt as a share of GDP has gone up under Republican presidents and down under Democratic presidents. That is about as clear a correlation as you're ever going to find in politics.

I've brought this up before here and the best anyone could manage was to try to argue that Congress is responsible for the budget, as if Congress had passed all those budgets under Republican presidents via veto overrides.


Ahem--the economy is booming and the deficit is shrinking even faster than predicted...even with 9/11. the war/and Katrina:
[quote]Aided by surging tax receipts, President Bush may make good on his pledge to cut the deficit in half in 2006 — three years early.

Tax revenues are running $176 billion, or 12.9%, over last year, the Treasury Department said Monday. The Congressional Budget Office said receipts have risen faster over the first eight months of fiscal '06 than in any other such period over the past 25 years — except for last year's 15.5% jump.

The 2006 deficit through May was $227 billion, down from $273 billion at this time last year. Spending is up $130 billion, or 7.9%.

The CBO forecast in May that the 2006 deficit could fall as low as $300 billion. Michael Englund, chief economist of Action Economics, has long expected a deficit of about $270 billion this year. Now he thinks there's a chance the "remarkable strength in receipts" will push the deficit even lower.[/quote]http://www.investors.com/editorial/IBDArticles.asp?artsec=5&issue=20060612&view=1


No Indictment of Rove in CIA-Leak Case

Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has informed top White House adviser Karl Rove that Rove will not face indictment in the CIA-leak investigation, National Review Online has learned. The word came yesterday, when Fitzgerald told Rove lawyer Robert Luskin that he, Fitzgerald, did not plan to seek charges against Rove. This morning, Luskin released a brief statement:

On June 12, 2006, Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald formally advised us that he does not anticipate seeking charges against Karl Rove.

In deference to the pending case, we will not make any further public statements about the subject matter of the investigation. We believe that the Special Counsel’s decision should put an end to the baseless speculation about Mr. Rove’s conduct.



An end to baseless speculation? Dream ON. This is just proof that Sealed v Sealed is Fitzgerald being sued by McNulty (or whatever his name might be). Only Rove is evil enough to keep his indictment sealed forever!!!!

El Presidente

What does MaGuire lower his odds to now of Rove being indicted?


No Frog-march! No Fiztmas!



Asked for comment, Karl smiled (in that way he's been seen smiling a lot lately) and quipped:

"No problem, I've needed to get my affairs in order for a long time."


OK, now that we've got that out of the way, When is Fitz going to indict the traitor at the CIA who sent that idiot Joe Wilson in the first place ands started all of this mess.

mark c.

best of all, we get to find out who Jason Leopold's "sources" are.

mark c.

remind me to hire Bob Luskin or Bob Bennett if i ever need to fight a parking ticket or expose a conspiracy.


Karl Rove not indicted!


Clarice, Deficits predicted to fall by half by year 2009, that is, as long as the tax cuts remain in place. No wonder that as soon as the tax cuts expire, no statements have been made as to what would happen to the deficits after year 2009.

Unfortunately, there is one democratic senator somewhere on the east coast that made a comment yesterday to his supporters that he would earmark to the maximum for his own area.

The more earmarking and uncontrolled spending done by both parties will keep the deficits high or not come down.


About time that the statements about Rove be published. Time to put that one to bed since it's coming from the horse's mouth.

Will the democrats shut up or dream on new conspiracy theories? They'll probably dream new conspiracies about Cheney being in the crosshairs of Fitz' investigations.


mark c.

excellent point!



Here is what Dean said, this morning:

DNC Chair Howard Dean: "If Karl Rove had been indicted it would have been for perjury. That does not excuse his real sin which is leaking the name of an intelligence operative during the time of war. He doesn't belong in the White House. If the President valued America more than he valued his connection to Karl Rove, then Karl Rove would have been fired a long time ago. So I think this is probably good news for the White House, but its not very good news for America."

mark c.

every time Howlin' Howie speaks he marginalizes lefties a little bit more. Now that's good news for America!


Should have worn a helmet: Roethlisberger. Dude, that's why they call it a "brain bucket."

Shouldn't have worn a helmet: Tinfoil Kossacks. My initial response was, "No, they didn't! Not really! Not even they are that dumb, are they?"

I agree with AllahPundit that the latter incident has the fingerprints of Karl Rove all over it. The unindicted, now in-the-clear Karl Rove. Bwahahahahaha!


News Flash!

Check Hotair for a slip of the tongue by someone in Iran about "nukular _________"

He filled in the blanks by accident.

Now you tell us exactly what you are trying to achieve.

Mark C, ROFL! Good thing he was voted for this position.


D. J. Drummond noticed that the polls haven't been updated in weeks


Good news on Rove.

Think Libby'll cop a plea?




Libby like Rove hasn't done anything wrong! He will be cleared ;wait and see.
