I'll drink to that too, but then I'll drink to anything.


tiresome, like everything else about Zero.


Good for them. (I guess)

Jim Ryan

And we crashed through the wall and into the street, kicking and a' gouging in the mud and the blood and the beer.

I'll drink to that too, but then I'll drink to anything.

And I'll drink to nothing.

Speaking of whom, Obama has been a real beast on my liver.


Where to go when everything goes to heck:

Wanna vote on the island?


Jack is Back!


I have been to Capetown on business, Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego on both business and pleasure, Rio on business, floated past Necker Island, know KC and Denver and was stationed on Guam. If I had to pick one (and ironically my wife and I have been discussing this since the Once was elected) it would be Ushuaia. The weather can be very fickled and extreme but it is as far away from everything that it would take a lot to remind of the screwed up world.


Oh my god, Jane, I used to play on #1. The weather is warm and the waters refreshingly cool. The best passion fruit juice in the world. The best wines. The friendliest people.

Rick Ballard

"Wanna vote on the island?"

Vote? Something has gone awry...

Any bets as to whether Dimon, Blankfein &c can crank up the bubble machine before closing? Looks like the market has shrugged off the utterly fantastic WH numbers on jobs created.


I'll go with Tristan de Cunha or Tierra del Fuego, but isn't it a little early to start drinking?

Thomas Collins

I like Block Island. see LUN.


Judicial Watch obtains 4 memoranda thru FOIA which links WH directly to the NEA propaganda effort:


St Bart's. Charming. Great food. Lovely beaches and housing.


I'm in on any of them. And I'm serious. As long as it doesn't take a ton of money.

Altho at this point I think we are winning at taking our country back, the problem is, everyone will have nukes.



RUSH's friend, Hutch, the former black NFL player was just on his show. He says he has written a provocative piece defending his friend and has sent it to several places for publication but no one has published it yet.

One of the places he sent it to was American Thinker. Tell the editor to "rush" the Hutch piece.

It's about the Clinton FBI records.

Also check out Judicial Watch for the news that the White House is arguing that they are not under the jurisdiction of the Privacy Act.

Jack is Back!

No, but they are under the jurisdiction of the Piracy Act. And if they continue to hold this country hostage, well, we are just going to have to call in the Italians.


We love St. Barts (having a wife who speaks fluent French helps). Ever fly in? If you have, you know what I mean.

The immature in charge.

Peggy Noonan has a column at the WSJ that I could drink to.


I boated in..It was fun that way , too, though less heart stopping.

Jack is Back!

Off Topic (but its Steyn): Mark on Copenhagen, Flannery, Friedman and The New World Order. LUN

First order, no 2 ply toilet paper.

2nd Order, bend over and be inspected for any chaffing.

It's always five o'clock somewhere.

Captain Hate

I guess I'm glad that Gates and Crowley have gotten together out of the limelight because I can't believe that would've happened without some admission on Gates's part that he acted initially like an idiot, which is easier to admit privately for gabags that care about maintaining some public persona. Anyway, good for both of them that it seems to have ended well; and Oblammo was still a moron for stepping in it.


I am just having the hardest time with the thought of Pelosi thinking up laws for my family. Her state is in ruin. Her hometown has festivals where nude people urinate on, and whip each other while policemen look on.
We are being governed by our worst. I'm willing to go with the whole "first 12 in the phonebook idea" for our congressmen.


Good Steyn Link JiB,

Too bad we can't just bottle all that "Caring" like how they bottled "Fear" and then "Laughter" in Pixar's Monster's movie to power their world.

If we could just power our planet on the CareBear's of the left, Oh would Candide have found his best of all possible worlds.

See Beck tonight.

Yup, JiB, they use the word 'government'. Obama is trying to sell us down the river.

Charlie (Colorado)

Heh. Dr K just said he wants Obama to campaign as much as possible: the more he campaigns, the less damage he can do.


Ann, the editor was waiting for the piece to come in and then it needs to be edited.


Brazil Islands For Sale--From $217,000


Thanks, Clarice.

I just thought you would like to know about the discussion today on RUSH. He is one of AT's bigger promoters.


I appreciate that, Ann.


Yeah, I heard that, too. Rush said that if the American Thinker doesn't run it, he'll run it on his website. Nothing there yet.

Hey, so they're saying the GDP increased at a 3.5% rate and they've "created or saved" one million jobs. Document drop at 3pm on a Friday. Guess those are the talking points for the Sunday shows.

Do we have a pattern yet?

Geraghty: Is New Jersey Cooking the Books?

The state’s job-creation numbers seem to come with expiration dates.


Joe B. is saying that he can state without fear of contradiction that the stimulus has created a million new jobs.

So I believe it, yes I do.

Where the fund solicitors live.

I don't see how anyone can consider any other candidate besides Bali Hai.


NO one would dare contradict Big Joe.



RUSH will be on FOX Sunday with Wallace. That should brighten Rahms day. :)

and at 6:18am
Gatewaypundit reported that the White House website Recovery.gov reported 30,383 jobs.

In fact the White House website reported today that a total of only 30,383 jobs have been created or saved by the Obama-Pelosi Stimulus. They seem to have lost around 970,000 jobs some where. Or, maybe they were never there to begin with?

The US has lost 3.3 million jobs since the Obama-Pelosi stimulus act passed.

The US unemployment spiked from 7.6% to 9.8% this year under Obama… the highest rate in 26 years.

at 5.18 pm a commenter said the total was 640,329.

Very fishy. No update on the post from Gatewaypundit.?


Imagine receiving stimulus bribes and then being asked to submit a report about how many jobs the money "saved or created," and saying none?

Obama should resign.



Major Garrett asked a great question today. Yesterday, Gibbs said that the Recovery Act was the reason the GDP was 3.5%. Then, when asked about the "Cash for Clunkers" fiasco, Gibbs said that it was responsible for 1.66% of the 3.5% GDP. Today, Garrett asked for a clarification. Gibbls provided none other than wouldn't Garrett agree the GDP was stimulated?


I forgot to mention, the Cash for Clunkers money wasn't part of the Recovery Act. An important piece of information to my story. ::grin::


Yeah, that was quite a tap dance, Sue.


I don't know if you guys have clicked on Extraneus' link but it is fantabulous!


It is. Everything in one place.

Uncle BigBad

The photo of the Once saluting the coffin at Dover reminds me of Dukakis in the tank.


Ex, great job!


That's as open and shut a case, as one can make, it doesn't really lead one to misinterpretation, it does make one want to take up drink, though


Completely OT, Mrs. C.. has legitimate complaints, as you can imagine. I've agreed, apologized, come off hiatus and taken on two additional jobs.
This afternoon, she used a turn of phrase I was hitherto unfamiliar with, to wit " I'm looking for a place to put my anger"

I resisted the urge to tell her.


Holy carp, I've got Clarice's icon! I'll have to stay sober.

Militant Banana

I think someone/some group should perform a citizen's arrest on the current President for his "crimes" to date.



I don't really understand your post but I am sure your son weighs on all that. How is he?


Yup, MB, this country has been hijacked.

Fresh Air


Auto normally adds 0.1% to GDP. Since it added 1.7% this time, 1.6% of it was abnormal and government induced. Take that out of 3.5% GDP growth and you've got 1.9%. Government spending accounted for virtually all of this growth as well. The proof: wages were down 0.5% during the quarter. Tax receipts were down. And real personal income was down 3.4%. There is simply no way to spin this as a recovery.

The 600,000-odd jobs they now claim is absolutely risible. They are counting one person hired for one day as a "job," I presume. This is single worst administration in modern history, and it's arguably paired with the worst Congress in all of history.

I don't know what to do. But I did donate to Doug Hoffman tonight. He needs our help.


The things you find when you cannot sleep:

Classic Political Crying Moments From Bill Clinton to Glenn Beck

I had forgotten about the video of Bill Clinton pretending to cry at Ron Brown's funeral. Too funny! And the emotional hippies is LOL for sure.

Wonder if we will ever see President Obama cry? Naw, no way, no how, there are no tears...I would bet money on it!

h/t snarkandboobs (I love that handle and she now appears regularly at Iotw)


Fresh Air,

I can't tell you the number of these stupid signs that have shown up in my Republican county:

Inevitably, they are on country roads where cows cross, roads with little traffic and four way stops that are being widened for no reason. On top of that, there are vehicles absent of any workers or workers asleep in vehicles that are parked.

It is ALWAYS a 45 day detour for maintenance that could of been done in a week. And I am sure it is all union work!!! It is driving me crazy.


">http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap091031.html"> Boo!


Perhaps Race Relations have improved since Obama became President. Simply witness the population explosion in ">http://news.bbc.co.uk/earth/hi/earth_news/newsid_8321000/8321102.stm"> Interracial Polar Bears.


Can anyone tell me why a Reporter from the UK's Guardian is over in Anchorage Alaska doing an interview with ">http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/oct/30/levi-johnston-sarah-palin-custody"> Levi Johnston?

Jack is Back!

BOOOOOO back to you, dadddy.

nonmilitary personnel

Gee Whiz JiB,
Warn a person this early in the morn. Now how am I s'pose to eat breakfast.

Jack is Back!


Given as you are to composing high faluting sonnets, I thought this one to be appropriate for your future consideration.


Ouch, Jack.

Strawman Cometh

No, this has nothing to with my son. He continues to progress. He's much stronger, can walk longer without assistance. His vision, however, has not improved. He has tunnel vision in his left eye and is completely blind in the right. The damage is in the optic chiasm. There is no surgical solution. There is still the possibility it will improve on it's own as the contusions clear. thanks for asking.

That's nothing...can you tell me where this picture was taken?

Jack is Back!


Yeah, I can tell you why. The Guardian makes the New York Times look like the Washington Times when it comes to espousing the glories of leftist culture and politics. Anything that can shed a negative light on Palin (i.e. she eats her babies) will most certainly fit their appetite much more than a recipe for moose-burgers. Plus, Levi fits the IQ parameters that their readership desires in the American citizen-idiot. Want to bet the first thing they bring up about Levi is that he doesn't have a passport?


hit - the white house?

...and a question - where is PUK?


Ann, I live in a solidly Democratic area. We have had the same Democratic hack in Congress for decades, so no need for those stupid stimulus signs.

unɹ puɐ ʇıɥ

You're right, Janet.


I was up very early this AM and turned on CNN. They did a 5 minute segment on Palin's new book without once mentioning the name of the book. The anchor was clear miserable at the thought of talking about her at all.

What a bunch of infants.


Levi, seriously wants to knoe why he won't get within an icefloe of Tripp, look in the mirror dude, Why isn't he being interviewed
in glamorous Hollywood, sarc.

Tunnel vision focuses the attention.

SC, he'll adapt; maybe diamond cutting, or accounting, or heh, arbitrating.


I've wondered about PUK , too. Haven't seen him for a couple of days.


Okay, we need to send out the bloodhounds and find out if PUK is alright!

Got any ideas?


I emailed him ..


The 600,000-odd jobs they now claim is absolutely risible. They are counting one person hired for one day as a "job," I presume.

Kinda like you get counted among those with "no health insurance" if you lack coverage for a single day of the year?


So if you are a substitute for a couple of days for one teacher, and then another day for another teacher in another district, then another day somewhere else, how many "jobs" does that count for?
