So i kindoff am stuck if I want to speak up. Lots of bad peoople on the web. Wish me luck.

SunnyDay

OK with me. :D

SlimGuy

We got it SlimDougJ.

You're a real....

nothing.

Sorry I vented, but would you want your daughter to do that?

Maybeex

Slim- you have been discussing that sort of thing TOO MUCH lately. I'm all for a bawdy sense of humor, but this feels inappropriate.

PeterUK.

I blame Bush.

clarice

Slim, in your case, I think they are offering servies you would be well-advised to avail yourself of.

Maybeex

George W Bush started out trying to set a new tone by 'rising above'. He didn't want to get involved in finger-pointing and blame-placing.
Unfortunately, it was seen as a sign of weakness by Dems and the press, who have turned him into the biggest liar we've ever had in office.

The men who do push back, Cheney and Rove, have been villified.
For good or bad, Bush is going to end his term attempting to take the high road, in the (perhaps mistaken) belief that the tone in Washington can change. As part of that, he has to stick by the people that are attacked by the Dems. People call it an over-reliance on loyalty, but I don't think that alone describes it. It is a loyalty not just to the person he is standing by, but also a loyalty to those who the Dems will come after next.
Lions don't stop hunting once the weakest zebra has been caught. They come back the next day and get the new weakest zebra.

Sara

Slim: give it a rest. Your sexual innuendo and moralizing is tiresome. And I agree with Clarice, it sounds like you need alittle either that or join a monastery.

PeterUK.

"Lions don't stop hunting once the weakest zebra has been caught. They come back the next day and get the new weakest zebra."

Jackals might be more appropriate.

Maybeex

PUK- aha! of course.

Jane

It's all about getting Rove. Who knows what they intend to do with him once they get him.

SlimGuy

Damn

Dual body slammed by a lady here and Rick within a couple of days just because I don't fit somehow into their image. Sure Rick I know you have never seen a pay for play gal it's something totally foreign to you.

SlimGuy

Jane

Some seem to have a fixation on Rove, but even if they manage to knock him out of the White House he still has a cell phone and he can still talk to like minded individuals.

It is such a useless waste of too much energy on such a little nothing.

sylvia

"..Sorry if my postings remind you of sylia..She must be an awesome person.."

Well I just happened to look at this blog tonight, just to check up on it, and lo and behold I saw my ID a few times. This is what DougJ does to tempt me to come back because he misses me so - he did this for a looong time on the other blog. He's also trying to make it seem like I am other posters here, but I haven't changed my ID yet, even though trust me I will soon.

Okay, I don't know why I even bother here because no else but me seems to ever get it, but here it goes again, I will try to give you all a DougJ tutorial.

DougJ adds new ID's all the time. Whenever you see a new ID on a rightie blog, there's a good chance it's probably a DougJ id. What he does is try to blend in with these new ID's for a while. Some ID's he always blends in with and give reasonable comments with from time to time for a long time running. I believe there are some "regular" ID's here, which I will not name, that are long running DougJ ID's that are just blending in.

Other ID's he uses for a more immediate purpose. I notice especially whenever there is a flame war between two other people, he tends to jump in with these newer ID's, sometimes several IDs at a time, and gangs up on the one or both of the flame warriors. He does this out of some sick enjoyment of lying in wait, acting normal, and then pouncing when the pouncing is good.

With these ID's or other ID's, once they are revealed in this way, he starts being less careful with them, because he knows their life span is near over. He then starts getting increasing sexually crude and malicious with these ID's because he know's people will figure them out and/or these ID's will get kicked off soon. Witness SlimGuy recent crudeness. Then he gets run out with those IDs, never to fear, he just cycles in new ones. It's something he likes to do over and over.

He especially liked to follow me around I think because I caught on early to his game and I suppose he considers me a challenge. All I hope is that his games are just confined to the internet and he is not a stalker in real life. Anyway, that's how it goes. You can all choose to believe it or not. Just some thoughts. But I am going to go back into hiding for a while until I come back. Perhaps I will email TM with my new ID when that happens so he can make sure no one else is trying to masquerade as me. Ya'll take care.

PeterUK.

Sylvia,
Don't go,you're lonely,Slim Guy is lonely.Forget DougJ for a few decades,you and Slim go and hit the town.

Syl

It's all about getting Rove. Who knows what they intend to do with him once they get him.

they're really dumb. I mean Rove is Bush's political advisor, the Republican party is on its own. Getting Rove wouldn't help the Dems at all unless Bush were running again.

The Dems run around wasting energy on so much crap. Like highschool kids figuring out what to do Friday night--well THIS sounds like a good idea so let's do it!

SlimGuy

PUK

I don't know how I got out of tune with everybody but apparently I have done so.

I have been to town, it's not a nice place.

Have some concept of decency and quality.

Rick Ballard

Ah, if Ahab could only sail the Pequod through these waters for a season... what a harvest he would take.

PeterUK.

Slim,
I too have been to town,many of them in fact,not a few cities,most of the Capitals of Europe,not to mention the rest of the world,so I fail to see where decency and quality come in in respect to the places where most people live.
You are visiting the wrong places,
Sylvia a seems a decent lady what more could you ask?

clarice

Rick, no need for a whaler..a big butterfly net would do.

Maybeex

Who will show up next? Anonymous? Dale in Atlanta?

SlimGuy

PUK

By all those visits you must have noticed that decency and respect is something that is vacant.

If you didn't you weren't looking.

PeterUK.

I was looking and I strongly disagree.

Sara

By all those visits you must have noticed that decency and respect is something that is vacant.

If you didn't you weren't looking.

Slim:

You seem to be the only one looking and then foisting your priggish prissy church lady morality on the rest of us. Grow up.

vnjagvet

Some people have too much time on their hands, it appears, sylvia.

clarice

vnjagvet, Did you notice that now 8 men have been granted immunity in Haditha and reportedly most have no obligation to even testify in exchange for these grants. Very peculiar looking to me.

clarice

I meant in the Haditha case, of course.

Daddy

How about a hat tip to the Student Government folks at Virginia Tech for telling the media to get off campus and leave the students alone.

Since the trite old reason for becomming a reporter used to be because you wanted to change the world and make it a better place, I find some humor in Virginia Tech's unstated conclusion that sometimes the way the press can best accomplish exactly that is by shuting up and leaving folks alone. Wish they'd carve that in marble above the entrance to a few journalism schools around this country.

clarice

HEH, Daddy.
Maybe PUK will design a fancy latin motto for us converying that thought (scram!) in some more high falutin sounding way.

Daddy

How about

Ad Hoc Putta Sock In It

clarice

We could reprise noli me tangere

Rick Ballard

"Media Veneficus Inconcessus"

is close but I won't swear it's absolutely accurate.

SlimGuy

Lady Sara

I would take my priggy prissy choice of morality any day over the alternative.

Do you honestly think the upstanding (or really laying downing) women are a better alternative.

SlimGuy

PUK

Then we can have an honest difference of opinion.

vnjagvet

Clarice:

That makes sense only if there is a real desire to find out what happened, and whether there was a cover up by higher ups.

I think there is little appetite for prosecuting the boots on the ground.

Even in the notorious My Lai incident (where between 300 and 550 were killed), Rusty Calley was the most conspicuous prosecution, and the only conviction of the 27 individuals charged. Remember that his superior, Cpt. Medina was acquitted. The charges against 26 others were dropped.

clarice

vnjagvet..I think they have no solid evidence--in fact, the govt is complaining that the higher officers got there too late dismissing the initial reports as insurgent propaganda (which I think it is)..and in the absence of any solid forensic evidence they are hoping someone will talk.

SlimGuy

I had to watch today a gal coming back almost each minute to get a crack piece from her pimp to hype here up as a more maketable quantity.

I saw here rub her body against a pickup truck like it was a multi orgasmic sex toy while waiting at the light to go home.

As I pulled out of the parking lot I had her pusher pimp run out in front of me and tried to convince me that my whole world would be so much better if I gave her a chance to get in my pants.

Simply no thanks.

Maybeex

I would take my priggy prissy choice of morality any day over the alternative.

Slim guy, you bring to my mind a memory of my son from a few years ago.
Near our home there is a women's clothing shop that used to have, in the rear of the store, a fashion poster of a woman with her breast exposed.

Every time my pubescent son walked past it, he craned his neck to look through the doorway to the poster. "That's disgusting," he would say. Every time.

Maybeex

***Every time my pubescent son walked past THE STORE****

Daddy - kudos the the VT student government. I know the reporters are disappointed. :D

I am confused a bit if you wished to express your son was upset with the viewpoint put forward or fixedly attracted to it.

I have nothing against breasts, they are a beautiful part of a woman.

Clarice -- a book you might find interesting: Donkey Cons

SunnyDay

SG, just stop. please just stop. no apology no explanation, no argument. Just stop.

Sara

Do you honestly think the upstanding (or really laying downing) women are a better alternative.

I think that it is their choice. And frankly, I would prefer the company of any of those women to a judgmental creepy voyeur who seems to get off describing these things, even after you've been asked to stop. Perhaps you should move to the Middle East where the Taliban types are in power and your delicate sensibilities won't be tested because all the women will be wearing burkhas.

SlimGuy

Sunny Day

Since you asked so nicely, I will defer.

clarice

Thanks, Richard.
Slim, we've all asked you politely to cut it out and you continue. Show up here in a trench coat and you'll be taking your life in your own hands.
No one is interested in your sex life or the life of the trollops you somehow bumped into today on what we are sure was an innocent errand to a perfectly respectable part of your hometown.

SlimGuy

Sara

I dont get off on it , quiet frankly I am sicked by it.

If you couldn't detect the horror I had for it than you have your own issues.

Maybeex

Slim- I quite easily saw what my son was doing. It was funny, because he was 12. But it was very transparent.

How many days in a row do you have to be asked to stop?

clarice

I don;t care if you recoiled with horror, fainted at the sight of it or were touched with an odd frisson. I don't want to hear about it hear, and neither apparently does anyone.

clarice

**to hear about it HERE***********

SlimGuy

Clarice

I am sorry I relate an experience I had. You are right and I am wrong. It is not about my sex life because I am not going there with any of these players.

Excuse me for sullying up your life with some people who chose to make theirs so bad.

Maybeex

TOM MAGUIRE! Please come back.

Daddy

Too bad we missed a Saturday evening opportunity to hold a JOM contest to try our hand at being the new guy/gal to write the weekly Video Diary for Katie Couric. The network guy she was using to pretend to be her got caught plagerizing a third guys diary entries and pretending they were really his diary entries so he could give them to Katie so she could pretend to America they were hers. Got that? Anyhow, for amusement only, let me throw my effort as Katie's ghost/diarywriter at the wall and see if it sticks.

"Good evening, I'm Katie Couric, and this is my Video Diary for this week. By chance I happened to be at the New York Zoo last weekend where I just love the animals, especially the Polar Bears that are safe from drowning in Alaska. By good fortune I bumped into that marvelous actor and humanitarian, Alec Baldwin, star of the wonderful children's movie, Thomas the Tank Engine. We met over near the pig's cages where some construction work was going on to improve the animals environment. Alec had to speak loudly over the din, but here's a bit of our conversation.

"Alec, look at those gorgeous little baby pigs...Oh look, that rude one just edged another smaller one out for it's momma's teats."

"A rude thoughless pig" loudly quipped a concerned Alec.

"I've heard that in pig years a single earth year equals 11 or 12 years" I queried, at which point Alec jokingly looked lovingly at the little porcine pigskin and humerously bellowed, "I don't give a damn that you're 12 years old or 11 years old or a child..." at which point I was enjoying his rolicking good humor so much I couldn't quite hear the rest.

By now I felt rather sad for the little piglet who had ben edged out, at which point Alec ingeniously pointed at the bloated Sow and hysterically hollared out, "Your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn't care about what you do!"

I was completely entranced by this gregarious superstar, so I asked him that since global warming was indeed happening, in our bleak future would he rather be dependent for transportation on a CO2 belching SUV or a donkey.

"An ass", Alec screamed out vehemently, and by great coincidence, at exactly that moment, Don Imus happened to be standing nearby and obviously he overheard my question. Stepping up in his trademark cowboy hat he patted the short mane on the neck of a nearby Petting Zoo colt and mumbled, "A nappy headed ho'." Suddenly a nearby small Petting Zoo donkey (sometimes affectionately referred to as an ass) walked up and startled a little girl, causing her to cry. Imus appeared heartless and unmoved by this tragedy, but brave Alec instantly stepped over the Petting Zoo fench.

"What'cha gonna' do Mister Baldwin?" asked the dumbstruck Zoo Attendant.

"I'm going to straighten your ass out" bellowed out the marvelous star of stage and screen as he courageously whisked toward that weeping child and the burly burro.

My, who would have thought so much fun and excitement could be had on a Saturday afternoon outing at the New York Zoo. Stay tuned for previews from next weeks installment of Katie Couric's Video Diary where you'll never guess *wink wink* who I bumped into at the Pink Sapphire Beauty Salon.

Now here's Harry with the weather.

Sara

Can the sanctimony, Slim. No one here cares. No one here wants to hear about it. And I can't imagine why you thought they would. A good portion of those that come to JOM are quite libertarian and this is not your therapy couch nor your church.

clarice

Very funny, Daddy! Niters all.

SlimGuy

Maybee

As I told another earlier I will withdraw. It was a bad choice for me to not have done it sooner.

Cecelia

"...don;t care if you recoiled with horror, fainted at the sight of it or were touched with an odd frisson."


Slim admires odd frissons. They're the most beautiful part of a woman's body...

Cecelia

"I'm going to straighten your ass out" bellowed out the marvelous star of stage and screen as he courageously whisked toward that weeping child and the burly burro."

---


Roughly grabbing the burro, Mr. Baldwin screamed, "Can't you see this is my ex-wife! Her soul was mystically transferred into this jackass! Just as in Prelude to a Kiss! Some of my best work", he added.

Don Imus and the Zoo Attendent watched as Baldwin led the girl and the burro away, loudly cursing them as he went.

"That guy's a nut!", whispered the Zoo Attendant to Imus. "Did you hear that business about his wife's soul?"

"That doesn't begin to describe him", Imus replied as he nodded solemnly. "And he was always lousy in bed."

I meant to clarify that all references to Mai Lai have been expunged from Rusty Calley's military records; thus, declaring him innocent. This friend of mine knew him personally.

How Crazy Is Al Qaeda? [Andy McCarthy]


From AP via the Houston Chronicle (h/t Wretchard at The Belmont Club):

American commanders cite al-Qaida's severe brand of Islam, which is so extreme that in Baqouba, al-Qaida has warned street vendors not to place tomatoes beside cucumbers because the vegetables are different genders, Col. David Sutherland said.

I normally wouldn't question Hillary's authority on the subject of cleaning up messes a president has left in the Oval Office....and upon reflection agree -- Hillary would make a very good supervisor of housecleaning services in the next republican administration.

When I walk into the Oval Office in 2009, I’m afraid I’m going to lift up the rug and I’m going to see so much stuff under there,” [Clinton] told a few hundred black political figures and others at a Manhattan hotel.


Jane

Had his Machiavellian plan to post "Open Thread Saturday" had worked, as scheduled, this would not be an issue. He cannot possibly know that he has hung us out 600 posts later with at least one sex scandel and a raft of false identity accusations later.

Let's hope he wakes up soon.

Jeff Dobbs

Save a Polar Bear...and you are writing the death sentence of countless baby seals.

Down with polar bears! Up with baby seals!

Oh crap. The seals eat fish. And the fish the seals eat, eat other fish.

The *real* scandal is that this all could have been assuaged with a thread herder who would get off his [REDACTED] and do his job.


Let's hope he wakes up soon.

Certainly le's hope so. But, chances are he will have several days' worth of posts he is about to unleash on us....good for reading and edification and education and entertainment and all, but difficult to navigate.

And the lazy [REDACTED] thread herder will sit back and do nothing, unless it is simply to whine and complain.

Ht and Run: “When I walk into the Oval Office in 2009,
“It took these extraordinary young women [Rutgers] to say enough is enough,” she [HRC] said, “and we need to stand with them and be clear that as women we will not put up with the degradation and demeaning treatment that is too often put upon young women.”

At the close of Clinton's speech, she changed into a saffron colored priestess robe, with the assistance of ten nubile maidens dressed in blue frocks.

Mrs. Clinton, having assumed her title as High Priestess Enablia, was joined by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for the lighting of the volcano ritual.

As a hush fell over the party faithful, several prominent members of the media (swaddled in the white loin cloths of the priesthood) drew back the curtains and the eco-friendly adobe ceremonial volcano came into view.

The silence of the crowd soon turned to joyous expressions of faith, as out from behind the Priestess' robe came the familiar figure of Bill Clinton.

Misty-eyed and nodding to the audience, the former president and icon of the DNC faithful, drew out his gilded butane lighter and dramatically set afire the green matter contents of the volcano.

As the cries from the crowds grew increasingly feverent, the blue-clad vestal vixens took their place on the gang plank above the ceremonial.

Smiling broadly and winking,, Mr Clinton sent a resounding, "Lookin’ good, ladies", to the women posed above the fiery mouth of the adobe vesuvius.

Finally, when the last vestal vixen had done her duty, the ceremony culminated in the burning of Don Imus in effigy.

The New York Sun picked up on Taranto's Copperhead theme.

"Copperhead Harry Reid" has an accurate ring to it.

Copperheads - willing to leave millions of blacks in slavery in 1864, willing to leave 50 million muslims under tyrant's boots in 2007.

al-Qaida has warned street vendors not to place tomatoes beside cucumbers because the vegetables are different genders,
Reminds me of a funny story, which I relate from memory because, somehow, horror of horrors, I lost the original email.

A co-worker sent us all an email about his mortifying misadvanture in the company canteen. Every afternoon he would go down and buy a snack, usually a chocolate bar. So on this particular spring day, he picked up a toblerone bar and looked about to see if there was anything special out. They had a stack of kiwi fruit out, and he thought that some fresh fruit would be really nice.

Now he hadn't picked up a tray. Normally he just got the candy bar, so there was no point in one. So he arrived at the cash register with the kiwis in one hand and the toblerone in the other. He quickly transferred it all into one hand, and used his free hand to fish his money out of his pocket. As he was doing this, he glanced up at the cashier, and followed her shocked and horrified gaze down to his hand, where the fruit and chocolate had somehow become arranged in a crude model of the male anatomy. He tried to rearrange the fruit with the one hand, but that just made the whole display wriggle obscenely.

He quickly paid for his stuff, got it back into two hands as he fled the canteen. When he wrote the email to us he was soliciting advice as to where to go to eat near the office because it was going to be awhile before he was going to be able to show his face at there...

Scuttlebutt from the WH Corrsepondents Dinner....



Sources familiar with the planning of the event tell Yeas & Nays that originally, Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush were all slated to appear on stage and perform a “Three Tenors”-type musical routine. Each president would take his turn singing country-western and Elvis songs. But the idea was short-lived: One prominent Republican charged with negotiating the participation of the three tenors, er, presidents, told Yeas & Nays, “41 loved it but said he had to ask the White House. The White House loved it, and 43 loved it, but Mrs. Clinton nixed” Bill’s participation.
