Strawman Cometh

"the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner gave a warm welcome to the man keeping the 2010 winner in jail."

Been a Jet fan since September 1967. Not a Rex Ryan fan-- what can I say. BUT Rex --like his dad former Jet ass't coach Buddy Ryan-- Rex is a a heck of a coach and motivator. My take is that this week the psychology is winning one game to reach the Super Bowl is enough. He's telling the players they need to beat the Steelers not because we hate them, but they stand in the way of a trip to the Big Game. Steelers have to be favored because they are home and have a 2 time SB winning quarterback, but it's anyone's game

 Ann

Holy Cow, cc.

Hillary has been stealing Michelle's pie.

btw, just got a look at Michelle's dress for tonight..... Socialist RED.

Charlie (Colorado)

Does that mean Vera Wang is out?

What could be more quintessentially American than a girl born in New York City?

Jack is Back!

Ann,

You sure it's not to honor the Red States of last November as part of the shift to the center?

JM Hanes

Ann:

I thought your quintessentially American suggestion was ROTFL funny! You're a positive inspiration.

Jack is Back!

NK,

I just don't like Ryan. There is something corrupt or maybe flippant about him. He has a great team even though you never know which Sanchez will show up. Have you noticed though how this year all the good QB's like Manning, Brady and Brees suffered when their defense was weak? I think Sanchez has had his success because his D has been their when he needed them - same for Big Ben. Offense wins conferences bu D wins S B's.

Chaco, I was thinking more of Vera Wang's design style than her country of birth.

Speaking of which, I have been watching the dinner guests arrive and Vera was wearing Vera, of course. Not flattering to her at all. Kind of layered shower curtains belted at the waist with a rope.

MayBee

Huffingtonpost has a little feature pointing out that Michelle, Sasha, and Barack all wore red for Hu's arrival. Yuck.

Please tell me she isn't really wearing red tonight.

JM Hanes

Where are you watching the parade?

Yes, MayBee - all red. Here is a link

Heritage explains how the Senate Reps can proceed now that the House has voted to repeal Obamacare:
Can Obamacare be repealed in the Senate?

This week the House will pass a bill to repeal Obamacare. Congressional experts will argue that the Senate won’t pass a full repeal. They are correct to argue that full repeal will not be passed by both the House and Senate in the next few months, but they may be wrong that a full repeal bill will not pass in this Congress within the next two years. If Senators don’t take two procedural steps this week, they will make it virtually impossible to ever get a vote on the House-passed full repeal bill this Congress.
The House will pass H.R. 2 this week. Once that bill is passed, it will be sent to the Senate for consideration. Once the Senate receives the bill, any Senator can use Rule 14 to object to the second reading of the bill. This procedural objection will “hold at the desk” the House-passed bill and allow the Senate to act on the full repeal measure.
If the bill is referred to committee, it will never get to the Senate floor. This procedural objection by one or a number of Senators will stop the bill from being referred to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee (HELP). If the bill is referred to committee, there is little to no expectation that the committee will pass the bill, let alone have one hearing on the bill.
Objecting to Rule 14 would hold the bill at the desk of the Senate and would put H.R. 2 on the Senate calendar. This procedure could be done with a letter or call from one Senator to the party leader. This would allow the Senate Majority Leader to commence debate on the matter when he so chooses. It is unlikely that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D–NV) would move to proceed to the bill, yet there is a procedure that any Senator can use to force a debate.
Any Senator can use Rule 22 to commence debate on H.R. 2 if they have held the bill at the desk. Rule 22, the filibuster rule, states:
Notwithstanding the provisions of rule II or rule IV or any other rule of the Senate, at any time a motion signed by sixteen Senators, to bring to a close the debate upon any measure, motion, other matter pending before the Senate, or the unfinished business, is presented to the Senate, the Presiding Officer, or clerk at the direction of the Presiding Officer, shall at once state the motion to the Senate, and one hour after the Senate meets on the following calendar day but one, he shall lay the motion before the Senate and direct that the clerk call the roll, and upon the ascertainment that a quorum is present, the Presiding Officer shall, without debate, submit to the Senate by a yea-and-nay vote the question: “Is it the sense of the Senate that the debate shall be brought to a close?”
And if that question shall be decided in the affirmative by three-fifths of the Senators duly chosen and sworn—except on a measure or motion to amend the Senate rules, in which case the necessary affirmative vote shall be two-thirds of the Senators present and voting—then said measure, motion, or other matter pending before the Senate, or the unfinished business, shall be the unfinished business to the exclusion of all other business until disposed of.
If any Senator can gather 16 signatures on a cloture petition, then they could file that petition with the clerk of the Senate. This would commence a proceeding that would end with a vote requiring 60 votes to shut off debate on a motion to proceed to a full repeal of Obamacare within two days of the filing of the petition. It is expected that Senate liberals would use Rule 22 to filibuster a full repeal of Obamacare. This would put many Senate Democrats in the interesting situation of voicing support for so-called “filibuster reform” while at the same time using the filibuster rule to block an up or down vote on Obamacare.
Once a bill is held at the desk, they can gather 16 signatures, then wait until the appropriate time to file cloture. They could do so next week or next year. If the courts continue to declare parts of Obamacare unconstitutional and the American people continue to despise this law, then the probability of full repeal may go up over time. At a minimum, Senators have the power to force a vote on full repeal of Obamacare if they have the will to do so.
If the supporters of a full repeal of Obamacare don’t use the Senate’s rules to force a vote on full repeal, don’t take them seriously when they say they are really want to repeal President Obama’s de facto government takeover of health care.

Thanks central and Ann. Oh, how distressing. At least she looks terrible.

I see Tom Friedman made the list. He must be so excited.

Thanks, Ann, I knew you wouldn't let everyone down!

Trying to figure out the patter of the fabric. I think it is swirling death eaters.

Oh, he was excited. He even stopped and posed for the photogs just like a celeb and everything.

I don't get it. Isn't the party being held in the RED ROOM. Won't Moochelle just blend in???

Extraneus

That looks like a perfectly nice dress if she didn't do that silly shoulder thing. Btw, our intelligence agencies weren't able to tell Obama that Hu didn't bring a tux?

JM Hanes

Doesn't anybody have the guts to suggest that FLOTUS turn around in front of a three-way mirror before she goes out?

Red FLOTUS

I hate to think that she decided on the off shoulder business herself, but the dress sure doesn't look like it was designed that way.

 Ann

 centralcal

I agree, JMH - judging by the fit and construction, the dress wasn't designed to be worn off one shoulder. One of her assistants really secretly hates her.

MayBee

Alexander McQueen died a year ago, so he wouldn't have been able to do a fitting. But for some reason, this WH has not allowed other designers to do fittings, either. The backfat issue makes me believe they have nobody to do fittings on her.

bgates

our intelligence agencies weren't able to tell Obama that Hu didn't bring a tux?

He's getting ready for the next phase of the US-China relationship.

Bill Clinton, last year: "Just think, a few years ago that guy would have been getting us coffee."

Hu Jintao, this year: "Just think, a few years from now that guy will be getting us coffee."

Ummm...For those with cats, the latest craze, Cat Yoga in Russia...

Sue

I wonder what the left really thinks about Obama rolling out the red carpet for Hu. Bush wouldn't, because of the human rights issues. Looks to me like they should say, right on, right on (to quote Rush) about Bush and be pissed about Obama. Bet they aren't though. Bet they don't even know or care that Obama sent the Dali Lama out the back door next to the trash. Idiots.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

Is it just me or is the current FLOTUS the worst dressed FLOTUS since Eleanor Roosevelt? ISTM that she is using the same long dead designer(s) as Eleanor did.

JM Hanes

MayBee:

If she does it the way she ordered her buckskin boots, she just sends out her measurements and demands immediate delivery.

In Michelle's defense, I have to say she comes in a distant 3rd to Rosalynn Carter and Hillary Clinton. You might as well just roll the dice as try to pick Hillary's most awesomely awful state dinner choice. That's why I just decided to link the slide show.

Enlightened

Sigh.....It's hard to bear. The Great Scolder of fat kids and their parents...is trumpeting joy and prosperity to the leader of a police state in her oh-so-sexy-off-the-shoulder, too-tight-for-the-back-fat designer frock. Brilliant.

MayBee

If she does it the way she ordered her buckskin boots, she just sends out her measurements and demands immediate delivery.

She did that? Suddenly I'm hearing her make the LBJ call, giving the measurement from her waist to her "bunghole".

glenda

oh , the humanity...MO definitely is wearing the folds of fabric (imitation of a kimono?what do the "red"Chinese call theirs)
not as designed. The flap on the shoulder and at the top of the back shows the original design.
But, the Post will babble about how she made Hu? (Who?) smile.
Lord, save us all from the history books, I hope it will be written somewhere in stone, Michele's closet was in the "Twilight Zone"

 centralcal

Uh, did you mean "waist to her camel toe?"

JM Hanes

I find myself wondering what Leslie would say. She hasn't dropped by in eons, alas.

Extraneus

Good Lord, as DoT would say.

JM Hanes

She order those boots from France, btw.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

You answered my question regarding gowns, JMH. What about every day apparel?

This dress makes her look flat and very bulky. It just isn't flattering in any way.

Of course they aren't. Despite their lip service, virtually nobody on the left gives a Year of the Rat's ass about human rights.

JM Hanes

Jim Rhoads:

She does walk away with a lot of 1st place ribbons (& bows). There's tackiest, sloppiest, most inappropriate to the occasion, most bizarre mismatching, and sundry other offenses against the dignity of the White House -- including, but not limited to wearing $500 sneakers to a soup kitchen.

Sorry for the length of this but this awful story (updated)just gets more horrifying;

[Ed M]: Update: I’ve just started reading the grand jury report, which is sickening, but raises an important question — how did Gosnell get away with it for so long? Forget about the murders of live babies for a moment and read this description of Gosnell’s work from the section titled “Butcher of women”:

[Grand Jury]One woman, for example, was left lying in place for hours after Gosnell tore her cervix and colon while trying, unsuccessfully, to extract the fetus. Relatives who came to pick her up were refused entry into the building; they had to threaten to call the police. They eventually found her inside, bleeding and incoherent, and transported her to the hospital, where doctors had to remove almost half a foot of her intestines.

On another occasion, Gosnell simply sent a patient home, after keeping her mother waiting for hours, without telling either of them that she still had fetal parts inside her. Gosnell insisted she was fine, even after signs of serious infection set in over the next several days. By the time her mother got her to the emergency room, she was unconscious and near death.

A nineteen-year-old girl was held for several hours after Gosnell punctured her uterus. As a result of the delay, she fell into shock from blood loss, and had to undergo a hysterectomy.

One patient went into convulsions during an abortion, fell off the procedure table, and hit her head on the floor. Gosnell wouldn’t call an ambulance, and wouldn’t let the woman’s companion leave the building so that he could call an ambulance.

[Ed M]: That’s at least three incidents where a hospital should have reported Gosnell’s butchery. Why wasn’t he stopped then? The politics of abortion (emphasis in the original):

[Grand Jury] We discovered that Pennsylvania’s Department of Health has deliberately chosen not to enforce laws that should afford patients at abortion clinics the same safeguards and assurances of quality health care as patients of other medical service providers. Even nail salons in Pennsylvania are monitored more closely for client safety.

The State Legislature has charged the Department of Health (DOH) with responsibility for writing and enforcing regulations to protect health and safety in abortion clinics as well as in hospitals and other health care facilities. Yet a significant difference exists between how DOH monitors abortion clinics and how it monitors facilities where other medical procedures are performed.


Indeed, the department has shown an utter disregard both for the safety of women who seek treatment at abortion clinics and for the health of fetuses after they have become viable. State health officials have also shown a disregard for the laws the department is supposed to enforce. Most appalling of all, the Department of Health’s neglect of abortion patients’ safety and of Pennsylvania laws is clearly not inadvertent: It is by design.

[Ed M]:State health officials knew that Gosnell and his clinic were offering unacceptable medical care to women and girls, yet DOH failed to take any action to stop the atrocities documented by this Grand Jury. These officials were far more protective of themselves when they testified before the Grand Jury. Even DOH lawyers, including the chief counsel, brought private attorneys with them – presumably at government expense.

Those DOH people should be on trial as accessories to murder.

MayBee

It's sickening, Ignatz. I've been thinking all day about how TIller was a hero to many on the left. O'Reilly tried to draw attention to him and was blamed for his murder. I don't know how they can make a graceful transition from that to vilifying this guy.

It's almost as if they didn't want to expose this guy so anti-late term abortion people could say "I told you so."

If he''d used those scissors inside the birth canal he'd had avoided murder charges respecting the infants. That's how bizarre the rules on partial birth abortion seem to me, and I am not opposed to all abortion.

I can't believe I didn't link to Steve Sailer's commentary on Ron Brownstein's White Flight article.

It seems highly relevant now that Obamacare is the name of the game for the next two years, and the Dems are already playing the race card. Oh yeah, the "White Flight" Brownstein is talking about is flight from the Democrat party:

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Brownstein’s article was left more implied than explicit:
“The Hispanic vote for Democrats in House races slipped to 60 percent, compared with about two-thirds for Obama in 2008 … Meanwhile, Republicans, with their 60 percent showing, notched the party’s best congressional result among white voters in the history of modern polling.”

Let me spell this out more clearly than Brownstein does. In 2010, whites voted slightly more as a bloc for Republican House candidates (60-37) than Hispanics did for Democrats (60-38).

Which would you rather have: 60 percent of the Hispanic vote or 60 percent of the white vote? Which is an order of magnitude more significant?

(This would actually be a trick question for much of the MainStream Media, which has devoted endless column inches to the Latino Supervote. For the MSM’s benefit: according to CNN’s exit poll, Hispanics cast about 8%, that’s e-i-g-h-t p-e-r c-e-n-t of the total votes in House races in 2010. Whites cast 77%—an order of magnitude larger)

Lots more where that came from, plus links. You won't find it at RCP, and you didn't find Brownstein's article there, either. For that matter, you won't find it here, either, if you use your narcisolator like you're supposed to do. LOL.

anduril

Doug Schoen is onto another huge issue that's been out there, and will stay out there through 2012. Guess what--he's found a racial angle:

Working-class families are fleeing the Democratic Party en masse, a trend that is likely to continue if their own economic situation remains weak in the face of ever-higher taxes, deficits and debt. These working-class voters see that public employees are continuing to receive more generous benefits and enjoy greater job security than they are. Support for the Democratic Party is now well below 40% with working-class voters who are unionized, and as low as 33% with whites who are not college educated.

...

Republicans are already making hard choices around the country: reducing union benefits, weakening their influence and limiting their right to strike and even their right to bargain collectively. Unless the Democrats engage in similar efforts, there will be a powerful new campaign issue for the Republicans to rally around going in 2012 and beyond.

1 - Is that a little yellow star in the upper left hand field of Princess Shopping Cart's dress?

2 - Sanchez is a 2nd year QB and not quite ready for prime time. His special teams and D will carry them if they get through.

3 - tuxedos are imperialist capitalist stooge costumes and unnecessary in the New China. Much better the Yuan Shi Kai/Chiang style dictator suit. great lines, austere. Formal in an intimidating, dictatorish sort of way that simply states "I am your overlord".

Off to see the Yasukuni shrine and revisionist war museum....I always like standing there while the older Japanese are paying their respects and then quietly whispering to the revered imperialist aggressor's spirits, "we won".

The estimable Sheila Jackson Lee chats up NRO on the subject of Chinese healthcare:

JACKSON LEE: I was with a Chinese delegation in Texas on Sunday, and one [visitor] came up to me and said, ‘What is this debate about health care? We think this is something everybody should have in China.’ That’s what this person said to me; he was baffled. Of course, their system is different.

NRO: They’re communist.

JACKSON LEE: They consider themselves in the 21st century — I’m not arguing their politics. I’m just arguing that their thought was . . . they were just very surprised by this debate. I’m not even asking to have that kind of health care. I’m just saying, countries around the world, many people, take health care for granted because their systems are different.

NRO: Britain, for instance, has universal health care…

JACKSON LEE: And I’m not using those as examples for America, I’m just saying that it is something that a lot of countries have.

I hope someone is compiling a Jackson Lee chrestomathy.

"No, if he wore earplugs because he was told to always wear earplugs when he shot a gun, then that argues against the insanity defense."

No, not at all. We already know he premditated, the question is WHY. If the result of a delusion, then the earplugs are irrelevant.

"Not that I personally buy that defense. If anything, it emphasizes it to my mind, as well as emphasizes premeditation."

You don't buy that this nut was crazy, after all wev'e seen? Then he is not the only crazy one. You are refusing to see evidence right in front of you, denial it's called.

David Bernstein at Volkh had an interesting story on Chinese medicine and BBC bias a few days ago. Here is an excerpt:

Reporter, narrating: China used to have a universal, efficient, publicly provided health system, with medical care provided by the government for free, and each village or farm having full-time medical staff under government salary. Now, however, China has moved to a “free market” system, with devastating consequences. Medical care has become far more expensive, beyond the means of many working class Chinese.

Reporter speaking to Chinese citizen: How do you feel about the medical care you receive today, compared to the days when the Chinese government provided the care?

Chinese Citizen [assumedly the most anti-“free market” citizen the reporter could find]: It’s much better now, we have access to educated doctors and Western medicine.
Reporter: But didn’t medical care used to be free?

Chinese Citizen: It was free, but it was terrible. The “doctor” assigned to our village had only a sixth grade education, and was more likely to kill you than to heal you.

Reporter: But didn’t everyone have equal access to this doctor?

Chinese Citizen: Sure. We were all poor, and we were all free to die in this quack’s care.
Reporter: But isn’t it true that sometimes people can’t afford the medicines they need today?

Chinese Citizen: Yes, sometimes it is very hard to pay, but at least if you can borrow the money, you can save a sick child. In the past, the child had no hope.

Reporter, narrating: So we see that China has moved from an equitable, fair system in which there was universal health care to a free market system in which the rich get good medical care and the poor are left to their own devices.

How so? It's the motivation that matters.

"Not that I personally buy that defense. If anything, it emphasizes it to my mind, as well as emphasizes premeditation."

What? premeditation is a defense used by the sane, it is not a determiner of who is sane or not.

Looking back at my comment, I think I had the word "defense" one too many times.

First, this part:

"No, if he wore earplugs because he was told to always wear earplugs when he shot a gun, then that argues against the insanity defense."

is explaining the point someone else was making.

I continue:

"Not that I personally buy that defense. If anything, it emphasizes it to my mind, as well as emphasizes premeditation."

--It's sickening, Ignatz.--

Not only is it sickening, Maybee, ask yourself which should be more of a national story; a congresswoman, a judge and several other people shot by a lone lunatic with no agenda other than his own personal demons or even more people murdered and maimed because the Department of Health of one of our largest states made a conscious decision to ignore the mayhem caused by an evil monster and to intentionally hide his misdeeds, leading directly to many of those murders and maimings solely for what really was a vicious political agenda?
Words fail.

Imagine how big this story would be if the Pennsylvania Department of Health was caught hiding and protecting some nut going around murdering abortion doctors.

Porchlight

I posted this on HotAir...it is especially insane that media coverage will drive many people to view what Gosnell did as some terrible aberration and will help those people convince themselves that most clinics do abortion the "nice" way.

So, what could be an occasion for people to open their eyes and learn, will end up giving them yet another excuse to close them again.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Just finished reading the thread and I have a question on the FLOTUS outfit. What is that sort of off white/beigy thing hanging down in the back under the gauzy wrap? It looks like what I put under an area rug to keep it from slipping.

_______________

As to presidential runs:

One of the things I like best about Palin is that she isn't afraid of the elites, in fact, she seems to disdain them, as do many, who think it is easy to read and then pontificate about something, but what have they really done? One thing I'm sure of, I won't vote for anyone coming out of the House or Senate.

On the foreign policy thing and other so-called presidential requirements in voter's minds:

Whoever included Romney in the list without foreign policy experience, I would differ. He probably has the best understanding since he is quite familiar with the business side of the entire world and how it relates to his/our interests. Also, he has lived abroad and is fluent in more than one foreign language and not being a stupid man, I'm sure he learned well from that experience.

I say Palin/Bolton or Romney/Bolton, the rest are pretty much mush mush, as my granddaughter says about things that are icky she doesn't want to touch.

Bunkerbuster:

I'm truly curious and would like an honest, straight answer without all the negative remarks:

1. Why do you want to pay higher taxes?

2. Why do you want to pay higher energy/gas prices?

3. Why do you want a government bureaucrat to make decisions on whether or not you get medical treatment over the advice of your doctor?

By you, I mean you personally, not your cause du jour.


narciso

Apparently there are no direct contributions by Gosnell, unlike Tiller to Sibelius,from the FEC Spy check, but that can be hidden any number of ways,

daddy

"Did he (Gosnell) have a political protector, for example"

Clarice,

If he did I'd be stunned if the MFM reported it.

My cynical take is that this will turn into a discussion of why we can't repeal Roe V Wade because then much more stuff like this will happen, and that the best way to prevent free-market aberrant doctors like this from running amuck is to fully fund ObamaCare and champion the Government Regulation of doctors.

If I was on that side thats how I'd try to spin it.

Porchlight

What is that sort of off white/beigy thing hanging down in the back under the gauzy wrap? It looks like what I put under an area rug to keep it from slipping.

Heh. I think it's a double layered wrap, with a black chiffon layer and then the creamy colored patterned one you mention. Not sure what the fabric would be but probably silk, in honor of China and stuff.

I actually really like the wrap - it just doesn't go with the dress. It would look lovely with a black dress or one that matched the cream color of the patterned layer.
