It has been a surprise to me to see how incompetent she's proven. She fits right in with the Obami after all.

bunky

desperate but not serious..........

MayBee

Is there any actual evidence that she isn't doing exactly what Obama tells her to do?

narciso

Well we saw with the Sit Room meeting, she's
next to Obama, yet they cut her out of the loop, and they put the real power players, Holbrooke and even Blair, on the outer ring.

Porchlight

VDH was great on the subject of Hillary the other day, too:

Secretary of What?

I’ve been following Hillary’s disastrous Pakistan trip: she seems nearly incoherent — sermonizing to the Pakistanis to do this or that, bragging that we Americans tax anything that moves and so should Pakistan, always blaming George Bush for all her challenges. (Her “Bush did it” spin is different from Obama’s: he blames Bush for leaving him hard decisions instead of vote-present easy ones; she does too, but adds that “her husband” had once upon a time done it right — nothing about the damage from Monica, the pardons, and the serial appeasement of the embassy bombings, the first World Trade Center attack, the USS Cole, etc. — but Bush then undermined their legacy.)

More at the link, including some musings on "what if Sarah said what Hillary's been saying?."

andycanuck

"confusing her adversaries is tactically shrewd of Hillary, especially since many of her adversaries are in Washington."
Ah. The Sun Tzu headless chicken defence.

Appalled

Hmm, would we have been better off with Hillary as VP and Joe Biden as Secretary of State?

Jack is Back!

Not to mention lecturing Pakistan, as if she was the Bush Administration:)

Can you imagine if Sarah Palin insulted the Pakistani's and American fiscal responsibility at the same time by talking about taxes as if it was a painting job (i.e. if it doesn't move paint it and if it does move, stop it and then paint it) what the press would be doing?

No, can't have the 2nd smartest person in the world looking like a fool. Nope we gotta find a way to make this look more and more like Bush's fault since he was the one who put Obama and Hillary in situations that you just cannot work your way out of.

Warren Christopher, call your office.

narciso

Who the heck, knows, don't expect anything rationally, However something a little more in the spirit of the thread's title

Tom Bowler

Maybe it's the media shield in effect. Republicans like Dan Quayle, Sarah Palin, and George W. Bush could expect to be crucified for the least little slip up, while Democrats always gotten a pass. Hillary probably got real comfortable knowing that the press just isn't going to notice when Democrats say and do things that are really dumb.

I think we're seeing the accumulation of years of "natural selection" by the press. Democrats have been so insulated for so long by the agenda driven media that when they finally get back in power they stand revealed as the dumbest, most incompetent and viciously partisan government in anybody's lifetime.

The left has a regrettably small talent pool. Good thing we have John Kerry to pick up the slack. Of course no one on the left has actually ever had a job have they?

Porchlight

Good observation, Tom Bowler. The media's lack of screening ends up hurting their preferred candidates in the end - even if they do achieve office.

Snicker!

The state run media tried to pull a fast one but the right thinking underground email revolutionaries used a little Alinsky ju-juitsu on them.

I agree Tom. The media hasn't done the Dems. any favors. They are crooks, liars, and bafoons. It is like a parent spoiling a wicked child...they get worse, not better when never held to account. Once they are in the light of day everyone sees how awful they are. Hence the President of our great 57 states.

Thomas Collins

Secretary of State. This is a position held in the past by the likes of John Marshall, William Seward, George Marshall and Dean Acheson. Time for you to do some of your channelling from the past, Hillary!

Jane

Rush just played a tape of him mocking Sarah:

"Drill Baby Drill. It's not that easy. It involved more than that." (rough translation).

WEll I want to know what more is involved. I want Joe Biden to tell me that.

--Hmm, would we have been better off with Hillary as VP and Joe Biden as Secretary of State?--

We would have been better off with Curious George as VP, Elmer Fudd as Secretary of State and Chuckles the Clown as POTUS.
Or perhaps we would be exactly where we are now.

BTW: like peter on the other thread I'll be here much less, henceforth, albeit for a slightly different reason.

Well stated. Because Il Douche is so incompetent it's kind of glossed over just how reprehensible Muffer Stalin-Rodham was during the 8 long years of Slick. But the biggest snake lurking around has to be Holbrooke. Mr. Let's Partition Everything has been the consigliere of every donk loser for years; I still remember him snottily admonishing Chris Wallace that Jean-Fraud Querri's flip/flop policies were "very logically consistent". Yeah whatever you say Dick. I thought that he had finally done himself in by setting sail in the HMS Pantsuit but he's proven to have life beyond her Thighness. He must have 8X10 glossies of everybody; maybe even the original negatives.

Since everyone is gravitating toward this post I thought I would give you all a look at PUK's favorite pub - The">http://www.stockportpubs.org.uk/pics/nursery.jpg'>The Nursery Inn, Stockport (although some list it as Didsbury East but close enough).

You can even ride your horse there after chasing down those pesky liberal foxes:)

Extraneus

The left has a regrettably small talent pool.

Which is why they'd better not start bashing Hillary. If Obama keeps going the way he's going, they've got exactly one year to get her ready to take him on.

MUST SEE. 1971. Unbelievable photo.

RIP, Peter.

Graham Nash had an interesting take on Peter back in the day, right before they formed a band together. Sounds like Peter could really play his axe.

Jack is Back!

Forgot to include this little description from The Stockport Pub Guide:

Superb multi-roomed pub with long-serving licensees. Little changed since it was built in 1939 and included on CAMRA's National Inventory of historic pub interiors. The interior includes a spacious wood-panelled lounge, a rear smoke room and a robustly traditional vault. There's also an excellent bowling green at the back that is home to numerous teams and competitions, and an upstairs function room. Good food, but only set lunches on Sundays. The lounge is used as a dining room at lunchtimes, but reverts to normal pub function in the evenings. Serves Jekyll's Gold and seasonal beers as well as Mild and Bitter. It was a worthy winner of CAMRA Greater Manchester Regional Pub of the Year 2001, and went on to win CAMRA's National UK title!

Clarice, instead of a dart board, how about a set of bowls with Peter's name inscribed on the them. Let me know what you want to do and I can make it happen - I have a victorian sports museum among my other pursuits.

bunky

As long as you are a D with an ivy pedigree you not only get a pass, you get a boost. I mean they were lauding John Kerry (with a very poofy face) the other day as if he were Dean Acheson. The only thing mising was the hanky stored in the shirt cuff.

Jane,

Yes, and we may get to pay them for doing it if the Democrats get their way and give them a federal bailout.

On a happier note liberal media outlets might otherwise go broke because of the abysmal job they're doing, since federal funding for the press might be pretty hard to push through.

You know, all this wondering about who is in the loop may be based on a mistaken assumption that there is a loop. Instead, I suspect Obama of being a classic "reform" pol a la Heinlein:

The only commodity any politician has to offer is jawbone. His personal integrity--meaning, if he gives his word, can you rely upon it? A successful business politician knows this and guards his reputation for sticking by his own commitments--because he wants to stay in business--go on stealing, that is, not only this week, but next year, and years after that. So if he's smart enough to be successful at this very exacting trade, he can have the morals of a snapping turtle, but he performs in such a way as not to jeopardize the only thing he has to sell, his reputation for keeping promises

But a reform politician has no such lodestone. His devotion is to the welfare of all the people--an abstraction of very high order and therefore, capable of endless definitions. If indeed it can be meaningful terms. In consequence, your utterly sincere, and incorruptible reform politician is capable of breaking his word three times before breakfast--not from personal dishonesty, as he sincerely regrets the necessity and will tell you so--but from unswerving devotion to his ideal.

All it takes to get him to break his word is for somebody to get his ear and convince him that it is necessary for the greater good of all the peepul. He'll geek.

I suspect there is no actual direction. Instead, every meeting with Obama leads the other parties to be sure that Obama agrees with them and is behind whatever they came in to propose.

Porchlight

It was a worthy winner of CAMRA Greater Manchester Regional Pub of the Year 2001, and went on to win CAMRA's National UK title!

Cool. CAMRA is the Campaign For Real Ale, an advocacy group that supports local beer-making and sponsors a lot of great regional beer festivals. When I was in London a year ago, my friend and went out to Ramsgate for a CAMRA-sponsored cider and perry (pear cider) festival. Lots of farmhouse cider and perry that is made in small (like, really small) batches and usually not even bottled.

Clarice,

Also tried to email Hickory Smith, one of PUK's collaborators on some "rock-a-billy" album but his address is kicked back. Also, Paul Mlynarz - awaiting his reply. Really odd that none of the Merseyside or Lancashire papers has posted an obit. They probably don't know.

[OT] I was musing about pseudo-liberal vs. pseudo-conservatives this morning.

The difference between liberals and conservatives is that the liberals believe in compulsion while the conservatives believe in compulsion--They just disagree about what you should be made to do.

That makes each side very afraid of the other and, as a result, unreasonable. Their commercials cast fear, not reason. Libs would put you under the control of the state, because they are the state. Conservatives would put you under control of the state, because they don’t like what the state allows.

One side would give your property to people who do nothing to deserve it and demand you reduce your carbon footprint. The other side would restrict what you can do in the bedroom or with your doctor.

It’s all the same only different.

I'd tell them both to go to hell, but because of them both we are already here.[/OT]

sbw

Jane, and proud to be family, too.

in_awe

Wait. I heard Hillary say the other day that Obama controls "his foreign policy" with an "iron fist".

So, Barack which is it? Was Hillary lying and she is free-lancing her way into these diplomatic minefields all by herself and you are allowing it? Or, was she telling the truth and she is implementing your directives verbatim?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Jane, You want this story for tomorroe:
"about 8.9 percent of all registered voters fall under the category of “deadwood” voters on the rolls, the term for voters who should no longer be eligible to vote in a precinct.

Not only does this raise concerns about potential voter fraud, but from the interest of campaign consultants, ineligible or expired voters could lead to a waste of resources, said John Aristotle Phillips, CEO of Aristotle.

“Some states have bigger problems than others,” Phillips said. “With deadwood exceeding one in seven votes in some counties, candidates might as well spend a day a week campaigning in the cemetery.”

Among the findings, the study showed that states with the most “deadwood” voters were Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Washington, West Virginia and Wyoming.

In Massachusetts, 116,483 registered voters are dead, 3.38 percent of the state’s total of registered voters. Another 538,567, or 15.6 percent, had moved to an area outside of where they are registered to vote.

In New Hampshire, there are 18,816 dead people on the voter registration rolls, or 2.5 percent of the total registered voters. There are 105,472 voters that have moved outside of the area where they are registered to vote.

The analysis showed that Washington State had 27,267 dead voters who were still registered, just 0.7 percent of the total number of registered voters. Another 332,510 had moved out of the area they are registered to vote in, or 8.73 percent of the total registered voters.

West Virginia had 72,717 dead voters on the registration rolls, or 6.74 percent of the total registered voters in the state. Another 141,352 voters had moved, or 13 percent.

In Wyoming, 7,723 registered voters (3.68 percent) are dead, while 45,547 (21.69 percent) had moved.

The state with the fewest problems percentage wise is North Carolina. There, 3.5 percent of registered voters are dead – 216,036. Meanwhile, 30,888 had moved out of the designated voting area, or about 0.5 percent.

Nationally, 1.87 percent of registered voters are dead, while 7.2 percent of voters do not live where they are registered.

“Deadwood on voters rolls complicates the electoral process and can cause problems like fraud and vote miscounts,” Phillips said. “It always creates a perception of low voter turnout. It gets down to this: by depressing turnout, dead voters make the rest of us look bad.”

The difference between liberals and conservatives is that the liberals believe in compulsion while the conservatives believe in compulsion--They just disagree about what you should be made to do.

Another Heinlein reference is useful here: he observed that the real political division is between people who want someone to be in charge (usually, led by people who twhat to be the ones in charge) and people who just want to be left alone.

I agree with you here: whether "liberal" or "conservative", a big part of what's really happening with an argument over who gets to tell the rest of us what to do.

Completely agree with Tom Bowler above.

The essential Hillary moment for me was her BS story about running across the Bosnian Tarmac under bullet fire. Knowing she had reporters on board who absolutely knew that was total BS, she still spouted it as Gospel, supremely confident from past experience that they wouldn't cut her legs out from under her by revealing the truth---and they didn't, until Sinbad and Cheryl Crow, big Obama supporters, let the cat out of the bag. Then the reporters chimed in, having effectively swapped to the Obama camp. From that moment on Hillary was "shieldless."

And a "shieldless" Hillary is a very ugly and a very stupid Hillary, particularly unequipped by brains or experience with the foresight to anticipate the unforeseen consequences down the road that occur as a result of what comes out of her mouth. And as I think about it, I think that's a pretty valid criticism of a great majority of the Left.

A Public Service Announcement for JOM'ers in DC:

(And also an off color language warning for you folks with young children looking over your shoulders)

">http://www.politico.com/click/stories/0911/punches_thrown_in_wapo_newsroom.html"> This POLITICO story reports that a Washington Post Editor (Allen) has tried to punch out a WaPo Reporter (Manuel Roig Franzia) for calling him a (“c—sucker.")

Now I seriously doubt that among this august and honorable JOM crowd that any of us have ever even entertained the thought that The Washington Post or it's Editors or reporters are a bunch of (“c—sucker's"): or Terd's or Arses or Bulls#&T Artiste's or "Major League A-hole's",
or that we have ever even mentally invited them to Self-Fornicate themselves.

But in the unlikely event that that notion has ever fleetingly crossed your mind, please don't act on it. Instead let us leave such boorish behavior of Editor's and Reporters punching each other out for calling each other (“c—sucker's,") in the NewsRooms of The Washington where it belongs.

Folks, I just got a disturbing email response from Paul Mlynarz of themanchesterbeat where PeterUK was featured and his tribute page was posted. Here it is:

Hi Jack

I am still waiting on the funeral info – nothing yet.

No donations as far as I know. Pete was fairly quiet and had no family so it may be very low key.

The fact he has no family is very upsetting. I'll try to keep everyone informed about the funeral and donations (if any). I am thinking about mobilizing friends and relatives in the UK to see if we can get some gathering or communication to the music community to find a way to make his trip to the pearly gates more than just a brief consideration.

Charlie (Colorado)

Did I just miss the discussion that PUK was that Pete Bocking?

Pops

Christie should have gone around New Jersey with an Obama MOP in hand and asked Obama to help mop up the mess the Corzine administration had made.

What could Obama/Gibbs have possible said in response?

In fact, the House Republicans should do the same and show up with mops to mop away the Pelosi mess of corruption and criminality.

Where are the smart Republicans?

From Ignatz earlier:

"BTW: like peter on the other thread I'll be here much less, henceforth, albeit for a slightly different reason.
Ramping up a couple of sideline businesses while timber and timberland remain in the tank."

Concerning Timber being in the tank: This">http://www.adn.com/money/industries/timber/story/996160.html">This ADN story about enviro's stifling Timber Harvesting in the Tongass, (America's largest forest) is worth reading. I know nothing about the particulars, or who is right or wrong etc, but even in the first sentence the story says that the arguments between the Forest Service and the Enviro's has gone on so long already, that it's known by the euphemism of "The Tongass Wars."

Further down we learn that the Timber boys wanted to harvest 120 million board feet, The Enviro's wanted it limited to 37 million board feet, and are livid that the Forest Service went for 73 million board feet.

Again I don't know the particulars---hopefully Ignatz does. But on the developer side, the argument is that if they were as stifled as the Enviro's wanted, the remaining Timber mills would have had to close down.
This seems to me to simply be an example of the continual stifling of Alaska's industries of coal, mining, timber, as beautifully illustrutated by Biden's pejorative mocking of Sarah today "Drill, drill, drill".

Am very glad she came right back at that nitwit.

Me too daddy; I haven't been here that long compared to a lot of the others but PUK was always very cordial and had a uniquely gracious way of dealing with people. Plus he was the best at whacking trolls.

Even though due to his standing in the Manchester music community we were able to find out about his death; as hard as it has hit us, having him disappear with no way of finding anything would've been much worse.

Just received this email on our beloved PUK:


Dear Friends of PeterUK

So sad to tell you that Peter died last week. It was sudden (we think a heart attack). We don’t believe there was any great pain or distress.

We’ve been close friends of Peter for many years. He was a lovely person, a loyal friend, a fabulous musician and teacher, and great company. We’ll miss him terribly.

Peter’s life here was very full and he had many friends. But we also knew that he had friends elsewhere via email and internet, of whom he often spoke fondly. I think you knew him as PeterUK. So I’ve been through his email records and hopefully identified everyone who would want to be informed. If I’ve missed anyone out please spread the word.

You may want to know more about Peter. This tribute http://www.manchesterbeat.com/tributes/petebocking/petebocking.php will give you a flavour. There may be other tributes or activities coming up, I promise to keep you informed by copy email. In any case we should get a date for the funeral in the next few days so I’ll be emailing the arrangements out to all his contacts, including yourselves.

Sorry to bring you such bad news.

Yours sincerely
