« A New Direction On Israel | Main | An NSA Leaker Indicted »

April 15, 2010


Frau Pfui!

What's the plan, Eric? What's the frequency, Barry? Where's the Smart Diplomacy, Hillary!? We can well ask the entire carpy administration, "Where's the beef?" They are all empty suits.


I think we know the plan:

It's Bush's fault for creating this problem that we have to come in and clean up.

It's certainly not our fault that we're completely incompetent to accomplish the goals that we said we'd accomplish.


Easy solution. Congress simply passes a law that appoints a group of Gitmo detainees to the board of the rich greedy wall street bankers (when Obama says it, it can be easily be interpreted as JEWS!).

Once these GITMO detainees are rich bankers, I don't think anyone could stop Holder and Obama from hand gutting them themselves a dull buck knife.

problem solved..


Oh, well, they can always distinguish themselves from Bush on Russia, Israel and Iran.


Far off topic, but on my mind today:

I was putting together a fuel tax credit claim and ran across this line*:

LUST tax on aviation fuels used in foreign trade

For some reason I wondered if our well-travelled friend incurs this obligation every year.


* .pdf, page 2 line 8

** Yes, I understand this is only humorous if you've been looking at forms for the past few months.

Out of the mouths of Mad Ave Babes.

Heh, Walter, I ran across an ad for a patent medicine yesterday which meant to say 'it can change your lives' but instead said 'it can change your liver'.


All together now: Barry O and Eric H are 'EFFIN MUPPETS.


Hey TM-- O/T, BUT, when is your post coming about the NSA indictment? Oh baby I can't wait until you dissect the potential NY Times' reporter/editor/publisher liability. After he gets through with Blago et al, maybe Fitzgerald will go back to DC/NY and look at this one. Oh Baby.


Perhaps we can start blaming the GITMO detainees for global warming or maybe point out that they oppose abortion...


Anyone going to a tea party willing to carry a sign saying:


Bill in AZ

dunno about that one Pops, but Rush mentioned one he liked: "Regime Change"


So, what's up with the Harvard Law School? Are Holder and Obama "special" students or has the entire enterprise fallen off?

They are just not that smart. Rise to their defense, ye heavy laden.

Say hello to the Dunning-Kruger administration:

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which "people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it". The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average, much higher than in actuality; by contrast, the highly skilled underrate their abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to a perverse result where less competent people will rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence because competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. "Thus, the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others."

“The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.”
— Bertrand Russell



Wait till you see what he does to people who employ illegals.


This is beyond insane! If this was logical, there would not be a single illegal employed anywhere in the US today. Singling one employer out and holding him responsible and no one else is just plain wrong.


GOP Senator: "Mr. Holder, what's your plan to close Gitmo."

Eric Holder: "Ummm, err, uhhhh....hey, did you know that my amps go to '11'"?


The absurdity of not being able to mention the word Islam when discussing terrorism at LUN


re: LUST taxes and changing livers: i'm reminded of some delightfully maladroit examples of recent radio commercials in the Bay Area.

the first is from a medical group specializing in cosmetic laser therapy for varicose veins, whose commercials open with the question "do you have leg veins?"

the second, which used to reduce me to helpless laughter, was from a law group working with real estate loans and mortgage renegotiations, who declared that "we've been spearheading the economic downturn since its inception."


A new McLaughlin poll of Jewish voters has only 42 percent of Jews saying that they’d vote to reelect Obama. Forty-six percent of Jews said they would be open to voting for someone else. The Jewish vote, while somewhat small, is significant. If the 2012 GOP candidate could approach the 39 percent post-war high-water mark set by Reagan, it would eat into Obama’s expected support in important purple states like Florida and Ohio.

Clarice posted about this new poll earlier.
As someone who has grown up with, and who went to school with, and been surrounded by liberal New York Jews my whole life, I hail this belated awakening, but really do wonder, what took so long, and why is it still 42 per cent? (the above quote is from today's NRO Corner.)


Tradition, peter. Plus most live in big cities with the kind of news sources we poke sticks at
