Is that toast I smell?

Last night's fundraiser for the Lightbringer was apparently held at the uptown apartment of the Chairmain of the Blackstone Group, who would be considered by most to be part of the evil Wall Street establishment the President so deplores.

$35K+ per plate, and the double secret leak out of the affair is that he needs to be reelected to "fix" Obamacare. Sounds like his stooge, Fireplug McNasty, may be making late night phone calls from the SC cloakroom.

All I think Romney really has to do is hammer consistently on the fact this guy is the Greatest Hypocrite Ever Known.

Sucking up to oligarchs like Buffet and film stars and Wall Streeters and pizza heiresses sort of goes directly against the whole Democratic Party Man of the People meme,n'est pas?

Obama's going for a full-Ginsburg--6 in one day--does not inspire confidence.

For who?

Makes me feel a bit more confident in his coming loss.

In my mind, the only time I think Obama thinks about Americans being employed is when it affects his fundraisers. I mean it is pretty hard to raise $35,000 + when you're selling pencils on a street corner.

I'm pretty confident the decision to hold six today was predicated upon the fact the next six after today will rake in a lot less dough.

The ACME Express is going to bounce through a rough patch before it finally gets completely beyond the precipice and slams into the ground.

“What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter, and Me”


I know he loves me...I have never had any doubt at all about that. We love each other very much. And that hasn't changed, and I believe that will be till death do us part. The love doesn't go away. It's unconditional."

The ACME Express is going to bounce through a rough patch before it finally gets completely beyond the precipice and slams into the ground.

I'm looking forward to that glorious moment in time when the Obama/Plouffe/Axelrod Genuine Rocket Car has driven off the cliff, the motors sputter out, and it hangs suspended in the air for a split second. Just long enough for Axelrod to hold up a sign saying, "Bye bye". Obama will, of course, be sleeping in the back seat, little collectivist, artificially sweetened, low-fat sugar plums dancing in his head.

At this point it would be only wishful thinking to hope a (metaphorical) 50-ton safe follows them down into the canyon to land on their bewildered heads as they emerge from the impact crater. Tiny umbrella included.

OT, Like Insty, they told me that if I voted for McCain, the US would unilaterally invade Middle Eastern countries without the approval of of the UN. And they was soooo right (in an election year)! Luckily we're cutting the DoD budget. LUN

O/T but perhaps of interest to some, the Blue Angles Air Show, part of the Virginia Beach Patriotic Festival had its first performance this afternoon. Wow. Sort of a dress rehearsal for the performances on Saturday and Sunday, seeing all of it at the oceanfront was truly spectacular.

The Blue Angels Air Demonstration Squadron’s performance during the City of Virginia Beach’s 2012 Patriotic Festival is presented in conjunction with OpSail 2012 Virginia and the United States Navy. OpSail 2012 Virginia, June 1-12, 2012, is part of a national maritime event celebrating the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 and the writing of the Star Spangled Banner. In addition to the Blue Angels performance June 1-2-3, the combined schedule of events for the Patriotic Festival and OpSail 2012 Virginia will include multiple major concerts, military aerial demonstrations, Parades of Sail, ship tours, historical re-enactments and educational opportunities. The tall ships will be anchored off Cape Henry on June 7, 2012 and more than 150,000 people are expected along the Virginia Beach waterfront.
Even with the tornado warnings in effect until 2100, the afternoon was great.

Jane,

I don't think Lizzy is going to last long enough to even make it to the Dem Primary.

Here's Howie Carr's newest uncovery (is that a word?)

" (Liz) wrote in 2000 that foreclosure sales “are notorious for fetching low prices...And boy, would she know.”

"Here’s a foreclosed property she picked up in Oklahoma City...for $4,000 in 1993. She transferred it to her brother and his wife in March 2004 and they sold it for $30,000 in February 2006...Those kinds of returns make you a 1 percenter."

"The prior owners of the $4,000 house were Richard and Shelley Walter, who had a son who served as a Marine in Iraq."

Pretty nice pick up by the gal who provided the “intellectual foundations” of OWS.

Captain Hate

daddy keeps calling Slick's malady something which occurs inside the mouth. I think what Clenis has would be better characterized as a chancre or this http://www.emedicinehealth.com/oral_herpes/article_em.htm

Larry Sinclair can name another President, CH.

From the UK Daily Mail:

"Her own personal narrative is as fascinating as the ensuing campaign scandal: her father was involved in the death of her show horse when she was a young girl. "

"She then became a muse for Manhattan’s 90s literary scene..."

Then "...in a New York hotel bar in 2006... She walked up to him, said, 'You’re so hot', and ended the conversation by passing him her business card which read: 'Rielle Hunter: Being is free'."

Don't know 'bout you guys but I'm ordering my copy pronto!

When Howie Carr sinks his teeth into a pol for whom he has contempt, he doesn't let go. We can look forward to a lot more "Howie Vetting" of Running Rabbit Warren as the campaign season progresses.

Captain Hate

LOL TK. Slick still has him beat on the career achievement award and it's not even close. I still think being flanked by the porn stars was the crowning moment of his life. That lying POS owner of Penthouse is in the Clenis area of tall tales when he unloaded that garbage about how Bent Willy had no idea who those girls were. Yes, I'd take the word of a porn producer on that over what every effing bit of previous evidence would indicate would happen. Kind of like "Yes girls; you will probably end up in Hollywood after this movie. Now use tongue depressors to make it easy."

That's just wrong.

Those of us who suffer from HSV-1 (to which you linked) without ever having had a sexual experience outside of marriage (and who were inflicted with cold sores beginning in their pre-teen years) would appreciate it if the difference between our affliction and whatever Clinton has on his mouth, lips or genitals were not intermixed.

paging rse:

This appears to be a very positive development and no doubt extremely controversial change to K-12 education in Louisana. What is your opinion?

Louisiana is embarking on the nation's boldest experiment in privatizing public education, with the state preparing to shift tens of millions in tax dollars out of the public schools to pay private industry, businesses owners and church pastors to educate children.

Starting this fall, thousands of poor and middle-class kids will get vouchers covering the full cost of tuition at more than 120 private schools across Louisiana, including small, Bible-based church schools.

Of course; part of the reason for doing that was pointing out to daddy that canker sores are INSIDE THE MOUTH, which was pointed out in that. But everybody seems to be ignoring that and what else I mentioned.

Maybe I should go read and listen to music. Charlie tries to zing me at every opportunity so that's no shocker; but to get hit offended means I'm probably posting too much or misleading people.

I see Nikki Haley is in Wisconsin campaigning with Walker today via Althouse.

On a conference call today at work we were discussing a customer -- someone referenced the "business friendly" climate in South Carolina. Someone else said "thanks to Nikki". All of use figured he was just talking about someone at the customer. Sensing no one caught his reference, the someone else then chimed back in , "that's Governor Nikki Haley, if you didn't get the reference".

Heh.

CH:
but to get hit offended

My comment was intended lightheartedly (references to virginity was meant to reinforce that part). But to have you lump me in with the guy who "zings you at ever turn" with a "you too hit" wasn't exactly welcome.

The joke when I was dating mrs hit and run in college was ... we would be doing something and she would inadvertently poke me in the mouth and I would grab my face and cry, "that's a cold sore!"

It was only a joke about half the time in the end.

NYT goes with Bellwether election referring to Wisconsin. That it is. And 16 independent polls in a row show Walker leading. HMMMM

Captain Hate

I only wish Captain Hate were here to help teach the lad the ins and outs of the game.

One thing I truly regret in life is that when I went to DeMatha I lived too far away to go out for the basketball team. I was pretty undersized then and doubtlessly wouldn't have survived the first cut; but I'd bet I'd have been a lot more fundamentally sound from running drills for Morgan Wootten than I did learning it on the playgrounds and as a gym rat. Although one of the biggest compliments I ever got was one evening when I still went to the playgrounds, an older man came up to me after a game and told me that he made his son concentrate on how I played the game at both ends. I modestly thanked him while telling him how fundamentally unsound I was compared to how I wished I was; but also told him that the other guys on the court were complete goofballs that nobody should ever try to learn from.

For any of you country fans (Janet or Porch specifically; but anybody else who might be) are you Marty Stuart fans? I read an article on him recently in the WSJ and got interested in his recent disc "Nashville Volume 1: Tear the Woodpile Down" which I'm listening to now. I'd never been interested in him before, thinking he was one of those "modern country" mooks that the Nashville finishing schools spit out like clockwork and were about as interesting as schlock rock (which he admits to having been). But this disc is very very good for all the right reasons: Good songs and hot performances.

Remember before the President focused like a laser on today's job report (--Not); He was focused on the fact that American military member returning from Vietnam were treated badly by some Americans?

Well tonight he is fund raising at the home of Marilyn Katz. She along with William Ayers, Jane Fonda and John Kerry probably did more to turn America against the veterans returning from Vietnam than 99% of the Americans who claimed they opposed the Vietnam veterans.

This reminds me of a comment at Powerline (on this post).

Roger Smith · Top Commenter · Virginia Commonwealth University
"I can't say it enough. Liberalism, leftism, progism...whatever you call it. It destroys everything it touches. The cogs have destroyed the credibility of scientists by using that profession to advance socialism by climate fraud. They've destroyed the profession of journalism by using that profession to advance socialism thru propaganda. They've destroyed broad swaths of the american public...most notably black americans...by race baiting towards socialism, the entertainment industry is dying a slow death due to it's servility to PC self censorship and they've destroyed the entire educational system, especially higher ed, by using education as a brain washing tool instad of a tool that teaches people to think for themselves."

Now it is destroying comic book characters.
