Wish I knew, JIB. And they lost by three to Maryland after three trips inside the five led to zero points.

Wanna see a luridly grotesque Democrat candidate in action? (Not for the squeamish.)

Jack is Back!


If all else fails in life and nothing seems to work for you then become a second rate state legislator in New York. No one will ever notice you until its too late and even then they may still ignore you.

Captain Hate

DoT, the Terps were very lucky to win that since they had to overcome many coaching gaffes by Fat Ralf as well as the defense coming up big


Happy homecoming, DoT. Say hi to my uncle if you see him (class of '45a). ;)

JiB, what a great idea. I recollect a few classic bad posts I might be able to find...

Janet the tea-vangelist!

JiB, Here is Bad's memorial Facebook group.


I have the utmost respect for the students and alumnae of our Naval Academy. I believe that one of the highest and best purposes of the Duke Football Team (given that winning does not seem to be in the cards) is to ensure that the Homecoming festivities are suitably kicked off with a solid win for the home team.

Basketball is of course another story altogether--

Jack is Back!

BTW, where the hell is everyone. I usually retire early with a book but tonight I thought I would watch the game and do a JOM meet up. Seems most have found another thread.

The "If we screw up" movie is LUN.

Jack is Back!


Thanks for that. Will definitely use. What a beautiful person. Why name her Bad? It should have been Good:)


My condolences, Frau. I'm very sorry to hear it.

Captain Hate

Why name her Bad?

She was here before I was (and she made me feel very welcome) so I never thought to ask, being somewhat familiar with nics that can at times seem misleading.


I think she was originally sad because those were her initials. But then someone pointed out that sad didn't suit her, so she decided (in her mischievous way) to be bad instead.


Her initials were S.A.D. so she went by sad. After she tolds us about her illness, but before we knew sad was her initials, we thought she was sad about the illness. Since she had a wicked sense of humor, and was not sad that we ever saw, she decided to change her name to bad.

Captain Hate

bad set the bar high by never complaining about the hand she was dealt.

Jack is Back!

Well, that didn't seem in the cards Rentiria hits one out. Giants up 1-0. Wilson looks suspect all 5 innings and finally his pitching has come home to roost.

Jack is Back!

All I remember was she never had anything BAD to say about anyone who was a certified idiot.


Meeks is having a press conference tonight at 9:30..with luck he'll cause more blacks and hispanics to flee the Dems.

Jack is Back!


If they do and want to vote they are going to vote for Crispy Crist. He has moved 2 pts. up in the polls but Rubio is still safe. Too late to pull out and give it to Crist. This one is settled.

Captain Hate

I hope Meeks unloads on Crist, Slick and Toonces. What does he gain by playing nice-nice?


Now that is remarkable, they're not only 'bayonetting the blue dogs,' but turning the Gatling on their prize constituencies, it's a thing of wonder

Jack is Back!

battery draining. Watching game. good nite all. don't forget my request re: PeterUK and Bad.


Who knows what they offered him. Right now he's a loser, so he may be very willing to take a deal.


JiB: Sad who became Bad and also posted at Tapper's blog as Mad, had a great 3 letter web name - it could be almost anything at all just by changing the first letter. Kind of like her - a pixie, elfish, little fireball.

Also, she was famous for saying "Obama sucks!"


Christine O'Donnell was on fire on Hannity just now; if all the DE voters saw that side of her, she would win in a landslide.


Gawker paid some sleaze to write up a story about a sexual encounter with Christine and the writer seem to have been outed by smoking gun.



It is a thing of wonder, narciso. Remember the entire thing was choreographed so that Obama would come out spotless--he was just there Monday campaigning for Meeks. How dumb do you have to be to think that Clinton made such an overture which Crist was aware of and Obama had nothing to do with it?


DoT, Navy doesn't have to schedule cupcakes like my Duke football team. Duke did play a Rose Bowl game. Of course, they lost. I'm happy that Navy is more than just a color.

Have fun.

Pauly J

"Meek in a press conference this [evening] issued a calibrated denial, saying that their statements are "inaccurate, at best."

"Any rumor or any statement from anyone that says I made a decision to get out of the race is inaccurate at best," Meek said. "There was never a deal."

Meek conceded that Clinton had asked him about reports that he was going to drop out, but suggested that he'd quickly ended the conversation, and he stressed that he had never actually decided to drop out. As POLITICO reported, Clinton believed Meek was ready to drop out on two occasions, and even began to draw up plans for a Tuesday rally with Crist."


Danube of Thought

Thanks Boatbuilder. We'd get after 'em in hoops too, but you can't get in if you're over 6'7". David Robinson grew 6" after Plebe year. Or so I have been told.


Thanks, Pauly


OT, according to the Memeorandum queue, I guess I'm at least as smart as Larry Tribe,

Melinda Romanoff


That's exactly as I remember her, other than her and hit being a one-two tour de force.

They worked off of each other like no tomorrow.

And very tough to stay serious for too long.

Mental stamina to envy. Sin or not.

I miss them both.



This is just wrong in every possible way:

"We'd get after 'em in hoops too, but you can't get in if you're over 6'7". "


narciso, dear, what??


Hit & Run,

You have no idea how much trouble you caused in Alaska today you Rabble-rouser!

In depth report to follow much much later, once I get all these pumpkin guts off my hands. But suffice it to say, 'don't call me daddy'. Please call me 'Alaskan Senate Candidate daddy,... I've worked so hard for this title'... Gad.


Lots of mysterious posts here or...I am losing what's left of my mind.

Danube of Thought

Well, Mark O, the height limit used to be 6"7", but they may have upped it a bit. Or there may be a waiver for guys with NBA potential.

Anyway, we're not taking anything for granted against the Blue Demons on Saturday. (Or are they the Demon Deacons?)


Sorry I was more cryptic than usual, in the LUN. Greta's ticking me off tonight by bring
Rick Klein, in to trumpet that stupid Hays
poll, and to cheer that decision that favored


8-0 Giants.


Sorry Rangers fans, the Giants are whooping on your team


Whoever leaked that letter, ended Tribe's career as a Supreme Court litigator.


adn (what daddy's apparently talking about)

"Dozens of people flooded the Midtown Division of Elections office this afternoon to register as write-in candidates for Tuesday's U.S. Senate election. Many said the effort is meant to protest an order by the Alaska Supreme Court yesterday allowing a list of write-in candidates to be shown to voters who ask for assistance.

The Anchorage office received 56 Senate write-in applications -- in person or by fax -- in just 45 minutes, said election clerk Raymond McAndrews shortly before 5 p.m.

KFQD 750 AM radio host Dan Fagan, a backer of Republican nominee Joe Miller, has been urging voters to sign up in an act of "civil disobedience" -- defying what he calls an illegal effort by the state.

The court action is expected to aid Sen. Lisa Murkowski's write-in bid. The idea of the mass registration is to create a long list of potential write-in choices and make it harder for voters to find Murkowski's name."


Melinda Romanoff


Poor Laurence thought he was "part of the club", and could speak out of school.

Ehhh, not so much.

Busy week so far, for the good, new clients.

G'night all.


9-0 Giants, Final.

Craig Mc

And here I was thinking that that photo was an Iowahawk parody. Yikes!


I agree with Tribe-Sotomayor-unimpressive.

Frau Erinnerung

"Whoever leaked that letter, ended Tribe's career as a Supreme Court litigator."
That suits me just fine, Clarice.

Do we curtsy or bow, daddy?

Danube of Thought

"Whoever leaked that letter, ended Tribe's career as a Supreme Court litigator."

I'd love to buy that selfless public servant a good stiff beverage or two.


And so Laurence Tribe joins Paul Volcker and Warren Buffett on the list of guys whose endorsement got Barry where he is who can't get their phone calls returned anymore.

I understand that the President of the United States views me as an enemy. What I don't get is why he doesn't take any better care of his friends than he does. He dismisses the old guys who made him look respectable. He drove the whole Blue Dog caucus to the pound to be put down. He hasn't done a thing for any gay man in America except maybe Reggie Love. Black people are unemployed at comparable rates in this country and South Africa. He hasn't gotten Jennifer Hudson's old stylist to work with Michelle. Who is he helping?

I think most of his support at this point is purely reactionary hate of the right. If after the midterms Sean Hannity and Rush each spent a week on "Things We Like About Obama", they could drive his support down to single digits.

How you say "Gitmo is still open" for 15 hours of live radio, I have no idea....


to paraphrase Dean Wormer, "fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son."



Give 'em hell at Annapolis. One of the uncles graduated Class of 41 1/2 and is on a wall there. We went to Army-Navy with him a couple of times when I was very young, and I was always torn between allegiance to the two schools.


My Dukies will lie down for Navy like lambs in a snow storm.

Be gentle.


bgates, I think you ought to send that suggestion to Rush.
Niters and smooches all.


What do ya' want first, the good news or the bad?

Okay, here's the bad. I will no longer be running as a Candidate for Senate from the Great State of New York, so if you were expecting to donate to my Campaign fund at McSorley's, just make sure it goes into the new fund labeled Senate Race in Alaska.

The good news. Hit's post above was about trying to get even with the Division of Elections in Alaska and the Alaska Supreme Court, for their mandating that a list of write-in Candidates for Senate in Alaska had to be presented to voters upon request when inside the Polling Place. This is unheard of and criminal, and has ferociously P.O'd folks out here, both Dem's and Repub's.

Hit's link suggested that as many registered and eligible Alaskan voters as possible immediately register as Write In candidates for Alaskan Senator, so that they would have to be included on the list presented in the Polling Place to voters, and hopefully the list would have thousands of names on it, and if in fact names were left out, then lawsuits could be brought as to why not. Heck of an inspired idea if you ask me.

Anyhow, got an address, hopped in the truck with Pup, and whizzed downtown. Had difficulty finding the place, so pulled into the Republican Party Headquarters (a relatively sad bunch) and then headed off to the proper location. It's where I have absentee voted in the past. Went in, found the proper office, and told the girl behind the counter what I wanted to do. She laughed, said I was number 11 today, and promptly and very friendly and very politely, presented me with the form, pulled up on the computer my essentials to verify my credentials, and then time stamped my form, accepting me as a Write In Candidate for Senator from Alaska.

She advised me that all entries had to be in by 5 PM today, as Write-Ins must be registered by 5 PM, 5 days prior to the Election. Then I asked, having seen how easy the process was (and free) could I take some extra forms and pass them out to friends and myself bring them back? She said that would be fine and legal.

Immediately I ran to the truck, dialed Fagan on the Radio Show, and told him what I had just done, how to do it easily (where and when) and said I had a form for him in my truck and I would hustle over and drop it off if he wanted to run for Senate. He said no, (weasel:( but then immediately after my call the next 4 or 5 calls were all excited about the idea, and as he started asking questions about the form from some others who had done it, I called back in and read some answers off the form, and he asked me to run it down to the station. I did, plus included a card from the Election Office which had a website and other info. This opened the floodgates. Calls came in from all over, the word got out, and people all over started driving like crazy over to the Office in Anchorage and Wasilla to register. By now also he had found the proper website with the official form, and had posted it and many folks were filling out the form and officially registering via FAX, and then eventually simply via website.

It suddenly turned into a huge party atmosphere, and by the 4 o'clock hour of his show, hundreds of people were flooding the Election Office, and now the news media were sending out teams to the Polling Office to see what the heck was going on. Folks were calling saying stuff like when they walked into the office there were 4 folks in line and by the time I left there were 0 guys behind me. (When I went in it was just me.)

We also had Lawyer's calling in ready to bring Lawsuits as needed to any of us new Senate Candidates not properly presented on the list etc. A wonderful day of Talk Radio up here (except the damn dog ate the back cover and last Chapter of my "History of Cook Inlet" while I was in trying to give Fagan his paperwork---rotten dog.

I also want to let you know that the State expects problems and challenges to the Absentee Ballot Process. It appears that anyone who asks to see the list in the Polling Room is having their Ballot somehow segregated from others for possible future disqualification challenges, so voters are cautioned to not ask to see the list when voting to avoid possible disqualification in future. We are now told that (at least in Anchorage) it is currently only 1 list and you cannot take it into the Polling Booth with you. Comments from some Polling guy was that they didn't know how exactly to deal with this ruling themselves, so there was a bit of "winging it."
The guy speaking now on Greta's show on FOX about how the list will be handed out is wrong from what I heard today.

Other good news is that 1 of the State Supreme Court Judges who approved this (Dana Fabe) is up for re-election in 5 days and now she has a big red target on her back. Good riddance.

So, all in all a very fun and exciting and positive day up here, all due to that Rabble-rouser Hit & Run! Was great to hear people calling in to Fagan damning him for for pushing this effort as vote tampering etc, and him exploding and going on offense. Was probably 95 % for the effort, 5% opposed, and you could tell the opposed were Lisa callers. Folks really are pissed and rightly so.

Now all I wann'a know is why wasn't I invited to the debate tonight, because I'm a Write-In Candidate just like Lisa Mercowshit.

I want a Lawyer!!!


Delicious, Senator Daddy!


so if you were expecting to donate to my Campaign fund at McSorley's,

Please, daddy. In the grand tradition of Tammany Hall, I was expecting you to donate me a beer (or six) at McSorley's. I'll take the dark.

Ralph L

Wake Forest (Crist's alma mater) are the Demon Deacons.


"I'll take the dark."


Sounds like you've had a visit or 2 to McSorley's there Mizz Porchlight!

What a fun day I had.


What a great post! We'll all be rooting for you, daddy!


You bet, daddy. Everyone should visit McSorley's. Congrats on your exciting day - wish I could have heard you on the radio! I wouldn't be surprised if you changed some votes just in those few minutes.

And congrats to Hit for the great idea. This will make for lots of fun for the next few days.

JM Hanes

Wow, that's AbFab daddy! and hit!

Can you FedEx me some absentee ballots?


Wow, Operation Alaska Chaos made the front page of the ADN. Good job daddy. Sent the link to Drudge to see if he'll front page it.


Go, Daddy!

Wow. You'll get a nice campaign push at the Nationwide race if the Go, Daddy car is running. ;)

JM Hanes

Hey Senator daddy & Architect hit!

David Freddoso over at the Washington Examiner picked up on the ADN story. They're giving all the credit to Fagan though. :-(


Set him straight. Does he have an email address?

JM Hanes

Politico is reporting it too. It is soooo cool to know the inside scoop on such a great story!

JM Hanes

Jeez. Obama skips the Sikh's Golden Temple in India, and then announces he'll visit the Jarkarta Mosque in Indonesia.

Captain Hate

Regarding the Tribe note, here's what a poster at AoS said:

I know how Ed Whelan got this letter.

Let's just say it's pretty fucking sweet.

Also, one of my friends from law school is a Kennedy clerk, and let me just tell you: he reads his press clippings. And he really, really doesn't like Obama. Why do you think he recently let it be known, through channels, that he wouldn't be retiring until 2013 at the earliest? Not an accident.


One unusual thing that occurred in last night's World Series game is that Freddy Anchez struck out to make the second out in the 8th and then struck out again to make the third out. I am not sure if that has ever happened before

Jack is Back!

Isn't Go Daddy a registered trademark?

Daddy, have you thought about having Danica Patrick do ads for you? You know that faux-lesbian thing where the shielded motorcycle cop pulls her over, takes off the helmet and shakes out her blonde locks and gives her that bedroom stare? That could really bring out the write in votes as long as they could keep their hands from shaking.

Janet the tea-vangelist!

I guarantee you one vote daddy. Here in Arlington we've got one position with only a Dem & a Green candidate running...so I'll write ya in down here.
I usually write in Sarah Palin or Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher but I'm going with "Alaskan Senate Candidate Daddy" this time.


Very cool, daddy! What an exciting and productive day for you (and, let's hope Joe Miller).


AP @ foxnews.com: Oops: Campaigns Hit With Gaffes and Gotchas

In Delaware, Christine O'Donnell got tangled in the First Amendment, appearing unaware it separates religion and government. The Second Amendment caused grief for fellow Republican Sharron Angle in Nevada, who entertained the notion of "Second Amendment remedies" -- that would be a call to arms -- if government isn't brought to heel.
How memes take flight.

Go Daddy!! What a great way to start the day.


appearing unaware it separates religion and government.

Blatant lying on the part of AP as well as a poor characterization of the First Amendment.

My blood pressure is already up this morning.


The warning, 'do not drive or operate heavy machinery' should be with this LUN, Fried surprisingly was among the stupidest. Btw isn't Tribe employed by Obama, in some capacity in the Justice Department

Janet the tea-vangelist!

Apparently Bill Ayers is endorsing the Stewart/Colbert rally.


Daddy is here at 39:00 in Dan Fagan's Hour 1.

I was no longer watching at that point, Peter. How did that happen?

Fagan is still clueless, whining about ACES now, while the Administration wants to shut down all oli drilling from the Bering to the Chuckchi, I thought he had learned something, silly me, from this last season

Rick Ballard

RCP pick up range 43-83. No slowing of momentum - water is starting to ebb strongly in Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac has dropped 3 inches since sunrise.

Must be global warming.

Wow Daddy!

It wasn't my idea, of course. I got it from Ace who got it from Dan Riehl at Big Government.

It's not what you know that's important. It's who you know. And I know an Alaskan Senate Candidate,that's who I know.

I have let Ace and Dan know that it was Daddy who is responsible for launching it into reality. I hope everyone knows...

The Minuteman('s Comments Section) Gets Results!

Janet the tea-vangelist!

From JM Hanes Politico link -

"Dan Fagan, who hosts a popular conservative radio talk show in Anchorage, said that after one listener called in to say he was registering as a write-in candidate, he encouraged others to do the same."

Ummm, that would be Alaskan Senate Candidate Daddy!

David Freddoso over at the Washington Examiner picked up on the ADN story. They're giving all the credit to Fagan though. :-(

Certified douche Scarborough approvingly quotes Rove's bashing of Palin. Nice team playing, Karl; maybe you can join fellow house idiot Buchanan on MSLSD in the future for your keen insight on torpedoing conservatives. Bring your buddy Castle along as another example of complete cluelessness.


The only thing that could make Operation (Hit Daddy) Write In Chaos better would be to have all the newbie candidates have names similar to you know who's.

Jane (sit on the couch or save your country)

Why name her Bad?

If someone can do a search on TM's post when Bad died, it links to my post on that subject. She was one courageous woman.


similar to you know who's

Lijo Millowski for Senate 2010!

Janet the tea-vangelist!

An interesting post via Instapundit. comparing the Rand Paul attack w/ the Ford shooting.

It sounds like Linda Douglas is the reporter (I'm not absolutely sure). You would think she would have learned something after covering all those leftist kooks for so long.
Linda Douglas joined the Obama admin. to shill for Obamacare....gave us the STASI-like flag@whitehouse.gov to report on your neighbors if they said something "fishy".


Legal Insurrection believes NOW and the lefty bloggers now attacking Gawker are insincere--that they are distancing themselves from this misogynistic outrage--of the sort they've engaged in against all conservative women --because it badly backfired.


This will make you feel good about where we in America came from, why we are unique, and why next Tuesday amtters so much, within the US and without. All in less than 10 minutes.

LUN is the culminating interview with British conservative Daniel Hannan. Listen, swell a bit with pride and renewed vigor, and then GOTV.

After all we don't just want majorities. We want each Rep senator that allowed Mycooski to keep her positions to change their approaches as well.

FWIW,I wrote up http://thevimh.blogspot.com/2010/10/anatomy-of-write-in-chaos-in-alaskan.html>a post on the Alaska write-in stuff, mostly because I want to send Daddy's comment around -- and linking directly to a comment here (especially once you get to page two of a thread) is a pain.
