Looney.
The documentation is their tax returns for the period MO is claiming they paid of the loans (after the 2nd book).
I forgot tax returns do not matter to the zarOs

Loony Libertarian

Also, we'll have Lucy Ramirez send some forged documents to Dan Rather to support our deranged obsession!


Oh, wait...

bad

Ace posted a link to this site. Captain, cover your eyes and probably not safe for work.

... the idiotic term birthers...

Exhumers would be a more accurate appellation.

Wow such insight. Not only did I miss the autopsy, I missed the death.

Loony Libertarian

Pay no attention to those plunging poll numbers behind the curtain!

Loony Libertarian

"I forgot tax returns do not matter to the zarOs"

I think you mean ZorrO, Sergeant Mendoza.

clarice

bad, that should give us a hint of the level of hyperbole in his --ahem--autobiographies.

Obama "Captain of Idiocy"

Dave in OC

Clarice,

Just noticed the AT funnies. Great Job!

Loony Libertarian

My perfessers always tell me that the Captains of Idiocy will doom American capitalism, and that's why we should embrace socialism.

PeterUK.

I like the idea of writing an autobiography and living the life afterwards.It indicates a rather attractive disconnection with reality.Sad the O Man missed the LSD experience.

Daddy

Jane,

I did not remember if the 3rd plane was reported on the flyover, but ">http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/04/27/air-force-one-backup-rattles-new-york-nerve/"> this paragraph from a NYTimes story of 27 April 09 mentions that there were 3 planes:

"An Air Force One lookalike, the backup plane for the one regularly used by the president, flew low over parts of New York and New Jersey on Monday morning, accompanied by two F-16 fighters, so Air Force photographers could take pictures high above the New York harbor."

Original MikeS

Yeah, Frau. The copy editor gig is what he referred to as being a captain of industry.

The summer before I started college I was the communications director for AT&T at a nine story building in Los Angeles. In those days (before e-mail) it was necessary to sort communications as they arrived at our site and deliver them directly to the intended recipient. Quite a good gig. I was the person "in charge" of the maintenance elevator.

PeterUK.

Yes a good idea for America to embrace socialism,a bit nineteenth century, just as it is going out of fashion,but as long as you can look the third world in the eye.

Sue
Source document used to authorize aicrew member to perform in-flight duties for this aircraft and provide accountability for aircrew personnel on mission. Additionally used to validate aircrew duties for entitlement to flight time, operational flying duty credit and flight pay entitlements.

I transcribed the above from the Flight Authorization Clarice linked earlier. Any errors are mine because I was having a hard time reading it and I type crappy, even though that is my field of expertise. It is under the heading Principal Purpose.

I guess they used the "photo op" a a training exercise?

bad

I wonder what is on that tattered birth certificate he gazed at for so long (per one of his auto?biographies) that contradicts his narrative.

And he obviously doesn't need a vault copy of his BC because he has the original.

Loony Libertarian

Democrats are tripping over the conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii and that there is a cover-up by Hawaiian state officials, among others, who falsely have issued a "certificate of live birth." On the one hand, Democrats and supportive blogs push the issue to the hilt to portray Republicans negatively; on the other hand, Democrats finally are recognizing that their tactics are backfiring.

The Obama-is-not-a-citizen movement started during the campaign, but as David Kuhn writes at Real Clear Politics, discussion of the birth certificate issue has exploded in the past month, pushed mostly by Obama supporters as part of a political tactic against Republicans:

But the treatment of the "birthers" is peculiar. I went on Nexis and did a search of the broad "news" category of the phrase: "birth certificate" and Obama. In the past month there were 564 pieces on the subject (302 in the past week alone!). That is more than half of all the pieces on the subject written before Election Day 2008, which totaled 1,051. Major broadcast outlets from MSNBC to National Public Radio have devoted hours of coverage to the subject in the past week....

Why, then, all the attention now? I've seen the footage of the congressman asked about the birth certificate during a town hall meeting. I've seen the footage of the other conservative representatives asked about it on the Hill. But I don't think that justifies the outsized coverage

Dave in OC

Sue,

If things haven't changed dramatically since the Vietnam era EVERY flight can be a "training flight." You probably don't want this much information but "leg runs" to Udorn, Thailand qualified as such...

clarice

pagar and dave, glad you liked the cartoon but Big Fur Hat did that all on his own.
daddy, I saw that ruling on the Stevens case and blogged it.

Now for someone to investigate the dropping of the elction case against the NBPP --

Frau Gärtnerin

Looking at the photo of Dubya and the Grand Keagle makes me almost like the old devil and leaves me with tears in my eyes. It also reminds me of Obama's first visit to the WH where he tried numerous NLP tricks on the CIC.
Pfui,Deuvel!

Add to the missing or erased information the article about Obama and the "non-African-American" girlfriend he shared an apartment with before he went to Harvard.

BTW the birther-folk--or People of the BC: A Journey in Search of the Long Form--came from the Hillary! supporters if I'm not mistaken. The PUMAs sank their collective teeth into this topic. They also to this day protect Sarah Palin. They, too, can smell sewage sludge.

Loony Libertarian

"backfiring'

That's what it is. Backfiring.

Dave in OC

Clarice,

I realized that as soon as I posted but i hadn't read your AT column of July 27 inspiring the cartoons. I just did it a few minutes ago. Great work.

Loony Libertarian

"leaves me with tears in my eyes."

Sob! Me too. Alas. The good old days.

BB Key

Looney. On CSPAN today it was stated that are now over 40 czar Os in the Ibama adminisration.

But I digress, get MO to show the tax returns, original balance, amount of last payment and why it took afirmative action scholarship students 20 years to pay of "college loans"?

PeterUK.

LL

"Why, then, all the attention now?"

It's like this. You buy a horse at an auction,sold as a yearling,you get it home and find it has false teeth,a limp,a squint,it won't run and it won't pull a wagon. Do you complain or feed it to your dog?

Loony Libertarian

'"show the tax returns, original balance, amount of last payment"

Don't forget his credit score, the number of tooth fillings, pubic hair count, etc.

Deport the S.O.B!!!

Janet

I see the poll question on the right sidebar is "Is the American Dream dead?" - I'd answer no, a dream cannot die, but the Obama administration has made (and is making) actualizing the American Dream MUCH harder.

Loony Libertarian

"Do you complain or feed it to your dog?"

One question...

Is this swayback mare located in the UK?

PeterUK.

"Looney. On CSPAN today it was stated that are now over 40 czar Os in the Ibama adminisration."

A swift edit.

"Looney. On CSPAN today it was stated that are now over 40 Commissars in the Ibama Eminiseration."

The first painting, I had seen on a blog called Sundries, linked just to illustrate
as a comparison to the devotion we have to the Akhanitsa, The rest fall in the "these goggles do nothing" category, and 'how do I unremember this". These people are not well.
Thanks a lot bad, now I'm going to need a beer, or possibly straight tequila.

clarice

Thanks again, Dave.

Loony, the man looks fully depilated to me.

bad

Knock back some tequila for me, narciso. Ace just lured me in with all that talk of unicorns.

PeterUK.

Thanks Loony,

"Don't forget his credit score,"

That would make very interesting reading.


No the raddled old nag is in the USA,but since it is helping to get our young people get killed we'd like to know who Incitatus is.

Sue

Can someone familiar with military jargon look at the http://www.dod.mil/pubs/foi/newyorkcityflyover/Air_Force_One_Flyover_Flight_Manifest.pdf>Flight Authorization and tell me what the codes are? I know the ranks, but I can't figure out the others.

Janet

Okay I'm gonna try another LUN
LUN for more W and O pictures

Janet

tested...and...working!

lurker

"the number of tooth fillings,"

could mercury poisoning be at the root of Obama's decisions. They say it makes your hair nappy.

PeterUK.

Janet,

Interesting.Actors usually get coached in these thing so they can look authentic.Obama can't even be bothered.
At least you know why there aren't any sports pictures.

BB Key

Looney,
Cerdit Score?
He did not need one. Ibama had Rezko and Northern Trust fronting for him.

puk thanks for the edit

PD

Greetings from Buffalo, WY.


Gee, I saw references to pictures from the NYC AF1 flyover and thought maybe the WH had finally gotten around to releasing the long-ago-promised report. But following the links, I see it's no such luck?

Looney Libertarian

"He did not need one"

But doesn't he know how many pubic hairs he has, and shouldn't an affadavit supporting that statistic be provided?

PeterUK.

"But doesn't he know how many pubic hairs he has, and shouldn't an affadavit supporting that statistic be provided?"

Well you're stuck to his bum,you count them. On second thoughts you probably have pet names for them.

glenda

daddy..
yes, good news justice is doing something@Stevens, but Holder is still a Goering/ type--dropping the NBP case and the SAM's on "shoe-bomber" Richard Reid.(I'm sure that's a favorite for all pilots)
He (Holder) is a close second in the scary department.

What's the news on our beloved, SP? Has she lost all her security since resigning?I'd love to see her holding a MSNBC producer by her 30/06 for diving in her trash for info!!

Looney Libertarian

"you count them"

What about the documentation?

Your solution seems random and cavalier.

Looney Libertarian

I must have irrefutable proof, in my hands, today.

Is there any reasonable obstacle to my
demand?

PeterUK.

Loony,

Hardly, you are a primary source,wedged in between the cheeks of destiny,so to speak.

Give us a number and your word as a Democrat,that should do.

Lonely Libertarian

Lonely Libertarian

It's so easy.

Just produce the Long Form. Then all this will go away. He must be hiding something.
I know there's something, and if I can just wish hard enough, I will find some real stuff that will get him in trouble.

Veeshir

But do I think there's something on the long-form birth certificate he doesn't want us to see?

Maybe he's not black.

Lonely Libertarian

"Maybe he's not black."

I heard he was from the Star system, Sirius.

That makes him an illegal, right?

PeterUK.

There are long form and short form pubic hairs? A genetic defect of a STD? Is this why he walks funny,do they get knotted up?

We need to get to the bottom of this,Call our correspondent in Barrackanus.

Lonely Libertarian

Sirius is called the 'Dog Star', and didn't he just buy a dog for his daughters?

BB Key

looney.
Quit avoiding the subject.
Was Michelle Obama telling the truth when on two occassions within 72 hours she made the statement (( We only recently paid of our college loans )) and said Ibama's best selling book made it possible

Lonely Libertarian

It's not Looney, it's 'Lonely'. I'm dyslexic.

Make fun of me and I will hunt you down.

PeterUK.

When is Obama's next novel being published? It is rumoured to have a working title of,"There is One Born Every Minute". Kaching!!!

Danube of Thought

Beware the public option. It's still alive.

When was a political fraud ever discovered as quickly as Obama has been?

clarice

I think it dates from the day the teleprompter died, DoT. Of course, most of us here knew it long before---I'm talking about the muddle catching on , of course.

Lonely Libertarian

"When was a political fraud ever discovered as quickly as Obama has been?"

We ARE quick, and smart too.

But are we going to do more than talk about it?

Lonely Libertarian

Or are we afraid that communist/fascist/Democrat/tyrant/elitist/trial lawyer sympathizer/liar/Racist will use his Executive power to retaliate against us?

That would be just like him.

PeterUK.

DoT,
Reminds me of the Pretenders that the kingmakers used to put forwards as heir to the throne. It has been known for some scullion to be set up for the job,sometimes quietly strangled later.

Perkin Warbeck was on such, Lambert Simnel another.

It always ended badly.

Captain Hate

When is Obama's next novel being published? It is rumoured to have a working title of,"There is One Born Every Minute". Kaching!!!

With the amount of vetting and fact-checking the MSM has displayed toward him, he could probably write about his great summit of racial healing that he helped Gates down the steps as Crowley arrogantly walked ahead and not be called on it.

PeterUK.

Clarice,
The Coroner's report said that the teleprompter took its own life because it could stand the shame.

PeterUK.

Captain,
Those steps!
That one has to be a Busby Berkeley Musical.
Gates could do a Fred Astaire with that cane.


Janet

Okay, now the poll on the right sidebar is asking, "What do you think about Julianne Moore being cast as Hillary Clinton in the HBO biopic..."

I thought, Julianne who?, Hillary who?

Janet

...also there is an ad with the title "The Coming Natural Gas Boom"

Someone might want to warn that guy that was in the "bum area" that PUK was talking to.

Captain Hate

That one has to be a Busby Berkeley Musical.
Gates could do a Fred Astaire with that cane.

PUK, with that cheezy white plastic lawn furniture it kind of looked like a set...

Janet, I think that Julianne Moore/Muffer reference was who Slick was thinking of the last time he and pantsuit-prompter had a conjugal visit.

PeterUK.

The first transcription of the Beer Party.

Captain Hate

Hilarious PUK.

I found this @ AoS last night:

Audio from the "beer summit"

Joe Biden: So have any of you guys heard about any of this latest broohaha?

Barry, Crowley, Gates: (nod no)

Joe: Well apparently up in Cambridge this colored guy was trying to break into a house and some drunk mick cop arrested him and well you know how can get with those people. And to top it off some big wig shot off his big mouth without knowing any the facts and it turned into a real shitstorm.

Barry, Crowley, Gates: (glare at Joe)

Joe: I thought for sure one of you guys would have heard of this story

Sue

On page 438 of one of the pdf files released, they are talking about 2 F16s participating. One D model from MGM with a photographer and one C model for AF1/F16 photo op. What is a D model F16? Is MGM the studio?

Jane

I did not remember if the 3rd plane was reported on the flyover, but this paragraph from a NYTimes story of 27 April 09 mentions that there were 3 planes:

So if the point was to take pix of Air Force One, why are there 2 planes in every picture?

Ann

There is so much frustration about the stupid Democrat bill called "Cash for Clunkers" that it should be a rich resource for Republicans in 2010. How about: 'It is the Clunkers in Congress, Stupid. Trade em OUT in 2010! for free as in FREEDOM.

Here is one headline: Dealers Race to Get Their Clunkers Crushed How about: "Voters Race to Get Their Congress Clunkers Crushed"or "Seniors Watch Out They Want To Scrap You Too!

or: "The program requires that the clunkers be put out of service for good, and they are not talking about cars but Seniors.

Sue

Jane,

If I'm reading the emails correctly, there is a plane with a combat photographer equipped with harness. I'm not sure what all of the military jargon is so I'm having trouble computing what I'm reading.

narciso

First, Lord almighty there's a Hillary
Clinton biopic, wasn't Primary Colors painful enough with Emma Thompson playing the part of Susan Stanton, the roman a clef Hillary. Next Julianne Moore, of "Hannibal" and the "Hand that Rocks the Cradle" as Hillary?,

michaelt

The F-16D is a two seater. MGM is Montgomery Regional Airport in Alabama.

I still lean toward the Tuskegee Airman movie angle.

Stephanie

The government plans big revisions to historical economic data... Developing...

On Drudge...

Now you know where Obama pulled that "recalibrating" remark from... he unintentionally repeated something he heard from his prior week's immersion classes on Russian Econ 101 (but couldn't remember the context)...

Jane

I still lean toward the Tuskegee Airman movie angle.

Looks like it.

Ann

Heck, From the article above:

Nick Clites, who is in charge of used cars for the dealership, was prepping a 1988 BMW 535IS, with 214,000 miles on the odometer, for its death. He drained the oil, then donned a silky blue protective suit, goggles and gloves and poured a sodium silicate solution into the engine. He revved the car, and within a few seconds, the solution hardened into a glass-like substance, the engine seized up and the car was dead.

How about: "Seniors, Wake Up... this is what they do to older models than you!"

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Here's a hot link to Terry Gains Westernjournalism article .

It's well worth the read. Has a lot of new info for me, especially regarding the types of BCs HI has. He goes a bridge too far here and there, but there is plenty of wheat amongst the chaff.
Westernjournalism was founded by Joseph Farah so take that as you will, but the language of statutes are what they are.

Stephanie

“The president and the vice president are great men, Liza. They did the right thing to invite us there to talk, but it's up to us now to extend this conversation. We have plans to meet in private and discuss things. You know, Crowley’s not a bad guy. He’s not a Joe the Plumber who wants to represent the Right. He would be horrified to be considered a racist.”

JTP represented the right so he is a racist... nice to know that. So representing the right = you are a racist... and not a damn thing the right can do that will change that...

SO WTF do they pander to these fools? Why would you want to garner the support of prejudiced folks like that?

LUN

Janet

Via Ace, via Hotair...a poster named Christian - great entry in the caption contest for the Crowley helping Gates while Obama preens picture.

"Just a cop, Skip, and a chump from the White House"

Sue

On 4/24/09 George Mulligan, WHMO, sent an email to Col Scott Turner. In the email, he expresses his desire to fly with him or be on the ground to see it, then asks him to score him an 8x10 glossy. In reply, Turner says you bet, Boeing has agreed to the costs of the prints, he can wallpaper his office with 8x10x. Why would Boeing agree to pay for publicity photos of AF1?

Sue

What is the 89 AW? Discussion about a May 5 or 6 similar flight for other tails in the 89 AW.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

LOL, Janet.

Thanks for that post-racial nugget from Gates, Stephanie. If that's the conversation these imbeciles want to have on race include me out.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--What is the 89 AW?--

Haven't been in the AF for over 20 years Sue and I haven't looked at any of the docs you are but I'm assuming it is the 89th Air Wing or Airlift Wing. That's my guess.

Melinda Romanoff

If there are two F-16's from the 89th Air Wing based at Andrews (LUN), I would also expect they were shooting at least one "shot" with gun cameras.

Melinda Romanoff

Maybe not, if one was an F-16D (2 seater, as mentioned earlier), but I bet there's gun film, too good an opportunity to waste, if you're going to waste gummint assets.

Melinda Romanoff

PD-

You're a bit away from where I used to play in the grass (hay, as in 80 lb. bundles) (LUN), but you are in the best part (and more particularly the people) of the US I have ever known.

DrJ

Melinda,

If you have tried to send me an email message, I've not received it. Would you try again, and post that you have done so here?

Loony Libertarian

Damn, what gave me away this time? I didn't even mention my son in Iraq!

Was it my obsession with Obama's pubic hairs?

I've tried to count them soooooooooooo many times when I'm expressing my appreciation to him, but they keep going in and out of focus.

PD

Mel,

Yes, the people here are pretty friendly. Similar in MT and ID, too.

It's been an interesting road trip. Saw a bunch of stuff I've never seen: Mt. Rushmore on the way out, then Glacier National Park (most amazing scenery I've ever witnessed), Grand Teton/Yellowstone National Parks, Bighorn Basin (like being on another planet, with the windiest roads I've ever driven). Beginning the rest of the way home tomorrow -- will take a detour into the Badlands, looking forward to that.

PD

Hmm ... that's "windiest" as in "twistiest", not "breeziest"

Melinda Romanoff

DrJ-

"You've Got Mail!"

Thanks for your patience.

Melinda Romanoff

PD-

Be grateful you're not trying to sneak your way to a ski race on those roads in February. Not enough coffee in the world to get me to do that again...

Enjoy the drive, except for the desert, but, you have to admit, it's better than miles and miles of corn. (Sorry Po!)

Melinda Romanoff

Drive safely PD.

I'm off to the rack.

G'night all.

daddy

Clarice,

Thanks for having blogged the Ted Stevens update. I apologize for having missed it and should have known as usual you guys are way ahead of me.

Elmer_Stoup

If Pres. Obama changed his name "formally" to Barack, wouldn't there be a court action on public file?

Les Nessman

Barry just wants to keep this issue alive because he knows that (so far) most people think the 'birthers' are a little extreme. If the public mood shifts and more people want to see the complete birth certificate, Barry will authorize it. FTR, I think Barry was born in Hawaii; though I can't be sure without the long form cert.

So to me, the scandal isn't that Barry was born outside the U.S., the scandal is that the sitting President of the United States is playing cynical games with the People for political points. His Office demands better than cheap political games.

You won, Barry. You are the President. Now act like it.

Frau Gärtnerin

PUK - it seems not to have ended so badly for Simnel who was allowed to live and turn the spit in the king's kitchen. I was about to make him the inventor of the Mothering Sunday cake but then read the cake was older than said Lambert.

Gates could do a Fred Astaire with that cane. I'm thinking "Putting on the Ritz" with either Fred or Peter Boyle.

Les Nessman

One way he can act Presidential is to just release the long form birth certificate.

Enough with the campaign politics, already.
Show some leadership.

narciso

If he could show leadership, one wouldn't have to ask the question. If he had done one selfless thing in his entire career, there might be some hope.
