FROM CAROL HERMAN

Insta-Pundit, today, is great. If you go there you'll find his link that BUSH'S NUMBERS ARE GOING BACK UP. And, a wonderful link, too, to POWERLINE.

JM Hanes

It's amazing how rarely MoDo, Krugman et al surface in the blogosphere these days, isn't it? Do they actually notice the falling off of attention, or does their reality-based community just sputter happily along as ever it was wont to do. Frank Rich shows up, but then I think he does a lot of marketing outreach.

Syl

'Shooter', 'Scooter', let's call the whole thing off!

Or is it 'he who controls the adjectives and nicknames....'

Carol Herman

FROM CAROL HERMAN

The "test" in "shooter to poop-der" is if you can make it to the bowl on time.

Ralph L.

You'd think the Hamster would be less free with derisive nicknames.

windansea

You'd think the Hamster would be less free with derisive nicknames.

I believe I coined the term HamsterWheel back in the glory days of plameology

TS9 is my witness

hit and run

Tom, you still having connection problems?

The pins and needles waiting for new posts are starting to get a little uncomfortable.

And I'm delicate.

Ralph L.

Hamsterwheel and Emptywheel. Or do you use one word for both? Maybe the "hamster" epithet she's probably heard since age 6 is what drove her into the thrall of Liberaldom.

citizenspook has some pretty interesting things to say about Plame, the WH, and Fitzgerald:

Barney Frank

--the duck hunting incident--

Knowing that TM always strives for complete accuracy, it was actually a quail hunt.

TexasToast

Actually. Barney, it was a quail harvest.


Ralph L.

That reminds me of the rumor that Muskie lost his chance to Carter's VP in 76 when he visited Plains and asked to see the peanut trees.

Mark Davis of talkradio fame says Hillary and Maureen are the same person: humorless, sanctimonious, and her own bigget fan.

Ralph L.

bad u bad: her own bigget fan, rude but accurate.

SunnyDay

Snarking about snark. hmmmmm.

Patton

I love how the Times uses INFAMOUS to describe Cheneys' hunting accident. Weren't we just claiming the left thing Cheney is EVIL, and they were denying it??

DEFINITION: INFAMOUS
1 : having a reputation of the worst kind : notoriously evil
2 : causing or bringing infamy : DISGRACEFUL
INFAMY:
1 : evil reputation brought about by something grossly criminal, shocking, or brutal
2 a : an extreme and publicly known criminal or evil act.

You see, Cheney's just plain evil.

clarice

citizensnoop makes Swopa seem sane.

Semanticleo

I am both shocked and hurt you did not remember;

There once was a lawyer named Scooter

Who spied a spook's spouse as a looter

He got caught in a trap

agreed he would yap

and fingered his boss as the Shooter.

topsecretkk9

Democrats just flipped the bird to the troops. At least we know how they really feel about them.

joe shropshire

So the pairing of Scooter and Shooter first appeared in a column by Spinster. Odd karma, that.

Sue

Tops,

I just heard Pelosi. She sounded like she had just won a beauty pageant. Giddy. Unfreakinbelievable.

not many reading his rants.

It scares me oftimes to realize how differently the leftists view reality compared to my own understanding of how the world works.

Don't they get feedback when their views turn out to be disfunctional? Perhaps that is why they seem to concentrate in occupations where there is no hard feedback to test their theories.

Top: 17 stupid republicans voted with the democrats for the resolution; 2 smart democrats voted with the majority of republicans against the resolution.

clarice

Exactly..Can't imagine riding over a bridge designed by a leftist.

In a bout 15 minutes I will be on So Cal public radio 89.3 in LA, online it's KPCC.org

Sue

At least they didn't get a majority of the republicans. For republicans, they held together pretty well. They never vote in lock step, like democrats do.

centralcal

Great Clarice. I have it on, on my computer now (they live stream). So you are on about 2:35 pm (pst)? Right now they are talking Iraq war.

MikeH

And Clarice gets to be on with LA Times reporter Patt Morrison (always 'behatted'), a regular HuffPoofer, as per a recent column on our Vice President:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/pat-morrison/dick-cheney-most-happy-_b_39905.html

Hmm - All I hear on KPCC now is Vilsack blabbering on about his "candidacy."

Sue

http://www.scpr.org/index.php#>Here's the link to listen to Clarice. They have a listen live link after you get there! Woohoo!

centralcal

Yeah, Vilsack just wrapped up.

here comes the Libby bloggers

Sue

Marcy Wheeler is really stuck on herself.

topsecretkk9

Hey --- Yeee Heee...listning to Clarice...Neato.

Sue

Ms. Wheeler needs to clarify that everyone is not welcome at FDL.

Ralph L.

Whitehall, I think it's the feedback that makes them so angry. They can't adjust their worldview for some reason.

azaghal


For a change Hinderacker got off the subject of beauty pageants and had this to say on the House vote:

I think the public will recognize that the real meaning of the resolution is that the Democrats, as a party, have committed themselves to a policy of failure and surrender. Time will tell whether that commitment will turn out to be a wise one.
Sue

Woohoo! Good job, Clarice!

No kidding Sue

I knew the host would not go back to Clarice - never you mind Clarice you and Cox were far more graceful.

and that ungrateful EW would just have to diss Cox - the FDL'ers just can never give credit - that perchance his years long prodding made it possible they obtained their passes? Ya think? Babies.

centralcal

fdlol - she thinks her readers are as informed as the JOM readers!

Thanks, Sue

centralcal

sorry for the double comment - typepad is acting squirrely

centralcal

I love the memeorandum headline in the box to the left of this thread: "Liberal Bloggers Demonstrate Their Political Immaturity, Democrat Says"

No sh*t sherlock!

SunnyDay

It took about 15 minutes for one of my posts to go through - the one up above. I went off and did something else and forgot about it!! :D

Hey...some good news today...

--GORE: 'I can't imagine in any circumstance to run for office again'...---

Alcibiades

I appear to have missed it by about 10 minutes. Too bad, since I was catching up on the other thread.

I'll try to get it later, if it is on podcast.

Rick Ballard

Great job Clarice. You've not the "no pause" delivery that's necessary to roll over the lib interviewers.

Ralph L.


FDL! JOM! Tastes great! Less filling!

TexasToast

TS9

Flipped the Bird at the troops? How about a real Lincoln quotation (regarding the Mexican War) Jan 12, 1848:


When the war began, it was my opinion that all those who, because of knowing too little, or because of knowing too much, could not conscientiously approve the conduct of the President, in the beginning of it, should, nevertheless, as good citizens and patriots, remain silent on that point, at least till the war should be ended. Some leading democrats, including Ex President Van Buren, have taken this same view, as I understand them; and I adhered to it, and acted upon it, until since I took my seat here; and I think I should still adhere to it, were it not that the President and his friends will not allow it to be so. Besides the continual effort of the President to argue every silent vote given for supplies, into an endorsement of the justice and wisdom of his conduct

...

The result of this examination was to make the impression, that taking for true, all the President states as facts, he falls far short of proving his justification; and that the President would have gone farther with his proof, if it had not been for the small matter, that the truth would not permit him.

clarice

Thanks, Rick..

MikeH

TM = Steak dinner for Clarice!

centralcal

The Politico article by Dan Gerstein about liberal Democrat bloggers is utterly on point! He has them completely nailed as to the maturity angle. Click on the link at the left of this thread to see what I mean. What's great is that the critique comes from a Democrat, not a Republican.

Semanticleo

"Besides the continual effort of the President to argue every silent vote given for supplies, into an endorsement of the justice and wisdom of his conduct"

There you have it. Honest Abe didn't support the troops. And he was a republican. Shameful.

MikeH

TexasToast - OK.... You might want to get out of the sun down there.

Rick Ballard

Lincoln?

Let's try Clement Vallandigham on and see who more closely approximates Speaker StarKist or Dingy Harry.

TexasToast

Clarice

I don't agree with you, but you did a fine job.

Peace

clarice

Thanks, TT

PeterUK

Glad to see someone has noticed the antics of Mad Jack Murtha,looks like you are going to get Vietnam Redux,only this time the enemy isn't going to stay in their paddy fields,they are going to follow you home.
Interesting the Democrats chose a loopy old man to do the deed,easier to deny later,when he falls off the perch,nobody to question.
JOMers better start taking notes now.

topsecretkk9

centralcal

I am sure that MyDD is preparing a "viscous rant and important action alert" for Gerstein right now.

----

Sorry Texas

You don't get to pull the history card only when it suits you.

When you start fessing up to Democrat strong warnings about Saddam's WMD and grave dangers he posed to us - then we'll talk.

maryrose

Great job clarice. You're our heroine, and you do it with class.

maryrose

Pelosi and Reid supposedly "cool" toward Murtha's rantings and ravings.. No Duh!

Rick Ballard

Peter,

The Democrats are in a hurry. Waiting to betray the Iraqis after we leave takes too long. Getting more Americans killed in order to score political points for their side has never seemed an unreasonable tradeoff to the Copperheads.

Why should they be different today than they were yesterday?

PeterUK

Mad Jack Murtha is Abraham Lincoln?

clarice

Thanks. Maryrose.

kate

OT-but for Bush I think it is a good thing that he now has a vocal and highly visible opposition. I think seeing Pelosi and Murtha on TV every night will be a good thing. Bush should be able to play off them nicely.

We should do a job on Murth and refer to him as "unindicted co-conspirator Jack Murtha" and tie him repeatedly to Abscam and Pork.

Sara (Squiggler

Defeatist Pelosi is a twit. Murtha is a senile old coward.

Jane

Glad to see someone has noticed the antics of Mad Jack Murtha,looks like you are going to get Vietnam Redux,only this time the enemy isn't going to stay in their paddy fields,they are going to follow you home.

I heard someone saying today that between the takeover of our embassy in Iran and 911, there were over 700 terrorists attacks against Americans. Since 911, there are have been none.

So PUK as far as I'm concerned, truer words were never spoken.

PeterUK

Rick,
The Roman Senate forbade the Legions to cross the Rubicon,one day they did.This is an extremely shortsighted political gambit by the Democrats.This time it isn't a "drug crazed conscript army" but professional volunteers,many of whom are better educated and intelligent than some of the detritus who call themselves politicians.
This time the military will be taking notes.

clarice

I watch "Rome" every night and except for the fact that the Roman Senators lived in more gorgeous houses and their women were more exquitely garbed, it looks more and more like the Capitol.(Which one is Cicero? Byrd?)

Ralph L.

Jane, that's not quite accurate.
There was the DC sniper and that Egyptian at LAX. I think they both count.
I forgot about the nutter here in Chapel Hill who ran over people in his car.
But the drop off was huge, and long may it continue.

kate

I do notice that the Republicans in the Senate, in the minority, seem to be developing the discipline they so lacked as a majority.

The nomination of John Bolton was one of the few nomination battles I followed on C-spanl. I really liked Bolton, for his blunt style and his views on things like the ICC. and looked forward to his confirmation.

The performance on the Republicans during those hearings was disgraceful.

Sara (Squiggler

The draft military of Vietnam vs. the All Volunteer Force we have today is a major difference, but even a bigger difference is communication. We were lucky to get a letter or several at once every few weeks, same for our letters to our loved ones in Vietnam. Nowadays, the military in Iraq has access to 24-hour cable news, Internet cafes, cell phones, even computer camera hookups so they can coach their wives thru labor and delivery and watch the whole thing. Not only are the military far more dedicated, they are vastly better informed on what is going on at home.

Charlie (Colorado)

citizenspook has some pretty interesting things to say about Plame, the WH, and Fitzgerald:

No it doesn't.

PeterUK

Clarice,
Ware young Octavian.

clarice

I heart Octavian.

Ralph L.

PeterUK, listening to my father and his Navy friends, I'd say they took notes last time. That's why the officers are overwhelmingly Republican voters, but thankfully not openly political. That would be wrong.

Syl

Not only are the military far more dedicated, they are vastly better informed on what is going on at home.

Wish we could say the same of the FBI. Do they even have computers yet?

Rick Ballard

Peter,

Speaker StarKist, Dingy Harry and Abscam Jack are delivering a nice bag of hot air to the leftist fringe. We'll see if the Copperheads have real fangs as the budget moves forward. Right now all they have is a bad case of gas. It's hallmark Dem politics - promise whatever it takes and deliver the minimum possible.

Jane

So Clarice,

What did you talk about on the radio?

Carol Herman

FROM CAROL HERMAN

WAITING FOR TUESDAY. I dare say it's wrong of people to jump the gun on what the jurors actually do. Do. (doo doo?) Only the FATES can say. We can only wait.

After that? I'll wait to comment. Because? In a "what if" situation, ahead of time, why not wonder what the "romans" get to make of the verdict? Why just us?

Ralph L.

Since I've killed the another thread, I'm off. Ciao.

Sara (Squiggler

Ollie North's War Stories broadcast from Anbar Provence this past week and there is a major disconnect from the positive things happening on the ground there with the drek the Dems spew in Washington.

Ralph L.

Since I've killed the another thread, I'm off. Ciao.

maryrose

clarice:
"Rome" is my new favorite show. According to history Octavian was a pretty good ruler.
sara:"Defeatist Pelosi is a twit"I agree completely. Wait until it comes to the funding-dems will show their true colors. Iraq war progresses-improves-dems lose in 08.They are consistently wrong on the issues because their fingers are stuck in the wind and recently in the snow.

Rick Ballard

Carol,

I've been wondering if it wouldn't be wise to run up a list of 'formers' involved in this thing prior to the verdict. I doubt that the 'romans' have any idea of the amount of deadwood that's been removed.

Powell, Armitage, Eckenrode, Cooper, Miller, Fleischer (on his way before, to be sure), Grossman, Grenier, Schmall?, Ford, Plame - I'm sure there are more that I'm missing but that's a half minute's thought worth.

Other Tom

Those quoting Lincoln conveniently ignore all the Democrats who said exactly what this president said. It's not exactly making them Profiles in Courage, is it?

Sara (Squiggler

If you are really interested in doing something about the senile old coward, Jack Murtha, add the website Murtha Must Go to your feed reader.

Syl

there is a major disconnect from the positive things happening on the ground there with the drek the Dems spew in Washington.

But of course. The Dems and moonbats spend so much time calculating the politics of a situation there is no time left to hear the news.

Reality-based? LOLOLOL

centralcal

Rick: re: the list of "former"

I hadn't thought of them collectively in that light before. Quite a list and, as you said, maybe not even a comprehensive list, at that.

PeterUK

Octavian also had to wipe the floor with the opposition,he ruled as the Emperor Augustus - a long way from a Republic.

PeterUK

Dissent in the camp Joe Lieberman

bad

I'm looking forward to Russert being a "former."

Rick Ballard

Centralcal,

Add Ashcroft, Comey and Harlow. I think there might be a few more DoJ and administration people.

maryrose

bad:
"
"All in good time my pretty all in good time"

I do a mean imitation of the Wicked Witch of the West.

Also looking forward to Fitz being a former.

centralcal

bad: Fitz? Yeah, me too. Don't think this trial has done anything positive for his career trajectory (which, I hope, is down and outward).
