Laura

the young, naive and apparently ideologically ignorant heads of the local RR campaign just asked if Sandy would mind reporters tagging along on the canvassing effort tomorrow.
Having been burned by the best of the MFM once or twice while in Iraq I may be downplaying the perfidy a little)
Sandy asked who and what organizations were requesting the access.

'Something called "The Nation" was the reply. The staffer had no clue. Sandy explained that there was absolutely no benefit to be gained and much to be lost. Apparently they did not bother to even google "the Nation"

That's a great mum.

Mad Jack

JIB: I think it is amazing that he is not playing in this series. It is no sure thing that the Nats will ever be back in this position. Leaving your best player on the bench as a healthy scratch is hard to justify.

re: The "Kox" starting the tea party.

How many of you knew who the Koch brothers were before you identified with the tea party? I'd never heard of them until well into the tea party momentum. I took the meme about them starting the tea party as a sign of the complete inability of leftists to understand anyone who isn't exactly like them: No one could possibly be so nuts as to believe in what the tea party stands for, so it must be brainwashing by evil corporate manipulators.

Really, they don't know what the Nation is,

Re Carville recently joining Team Bozo, from the Daily Caller piece already posted:
...........................................
"Klein said relations between the Clintons and President Obama have reached a new low, most recently with Obama ignoring Bill Clinton’s offer to help him and Vice President Joe Biden prepare for the debates with the Republican ticket. “He had very clear ideas on how they should do that,” Klein told TheDC. “He never once got a response. And it absolutely sent him into orbit."
.........................................
Very odd behavior.

Coming up to DC on Sunday. Staying at oldest daughters in Darnestown. Have an interment in Arlington on Monday at 1000hrs. Most likely a reception afterwards. No time to meet up. Leave on Tuesday morning. But if an opening appears I will let you all know. Guy was my first engineering mentor out of the service and was Airborne in WW2 but never called up.

All's well in the Houses of Westeros, (the fantasy world in Martin's Game of Thrones)/

Very odd behavior.

Unless you're convinced you know better than everyone else.

I'm pretty good at being president.
I'm a better speechwriter than my speechwriters.

Rick Ballard

PD,

The proglodyte commies required Soros, Bing and Lewis to continually fund and run their "grass roots" "community organizer" activities.

It's inconceivable to a committed statist, completely Pitzerized and wholly unable to do more than regurgitate points made by their last indoctrinator, that wholly voluntary and truly grass root organizations can exist.

Bryce Harper yard. Nats up 4-0. Wolf Blitzer and wife happy.

They do insist on the Scorcese habit, of narrating what we already know;

Eric in Boise

Dumb question:

A manager I worked with at HP had the last name of Koch. She pronounced it "Cook". Do they pronounce it the same way?

PD

Coke?

Jim Eagle

Morse goes yard for a 2 run homer. Nats 6 - 0. Too bad the O's lost since a B'ldmore v. DC series would have been awesome. Looks like a Detroit v. DC. Giants cannot do it twice can they?

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

Wainright has discovered throwing batting practice in a playoff game is a losing proposition.

Jane - Mock the Media!

How many of you knew who the Koch brothers were before you identified with the tea party?

I just want to know where my check is.

Eric, I think they pronounce it "cock" but since they failed to send me my check, I don't know for sure.

Jim Eagle

Love JOM but I am busted tonight and have to get to bed for a big Cub Scout day tomorrow. Night all.

Clarice

Nite. I'm going to try to get some sleep, too. I pulled something or the other exercising Wednesday and have been crippled up and not sleeping for a couple of days. If it doesn't work, I'll be back.

Captain Hate

Dick Stockton is forcing me to mute the game.

Dick used to be a good basketball announcer with Bill Russell in the 80s. I've heard a lot of complaints about him for at least a couple years.

PD, I had never heard of them. They are just the new Halliburton. You can bet the leftists know nothing about Koch businesses just like they knew nothing about Halliburton.

CorkyAgain

How many of you knew who the Koch brothers were before you identified with the tea party?

I used to read lewrockwell.com on regular basis. For years now, they've been engaged in a kind of intramural libertarian feud with the "Kochtopus".

Jim Eagle

Before I go.

Joe says what he means.

Mad Jack

Stockton did the Sox as well and was pretty good back then but has lost quite a bit off his fastball.

the complete inability of leftists to understand anyone who isn't exactly like them:

Reminds me of this from a friend - Here is the original quote -
"Innocence is ever simple and credulous. Conscious of no designs itself, it suspects none in others."
-- Excerpt from William Wirt's Defense of Harman Blennerhassett in the Burr Trial

Then my friend changed it a bit -
"Malice is ever complex and paranoid. Conscious of its own designs, it suspects only malice in others."
-- C R

The left is full of malice.

Hope you don't return tonight, Clarice, and instead have a great, restful sleep.

I am outta here too - gonna go retire to my fluffy pillows, my iPad, and games.

How many of you knew who the Koch brothers were before you identified with the tea party?

I knew them from the technical activities of their companies. I have worked in areas where they do too.

Hey! Come back! Why are you all going to bed? Oh dear. It's that time?

There was a little snark, from an earlier instance, but he raises a good point;

Reading that was brutal in its sheer mindlessness.

Janet - that reminds me of:

Titus 1:15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

Opa! ~ things Joe Bidenopoulos almost shouted

Perhaps next Hillary will compare the emergence of "Democracy" in the Middle East to what's necessary when you make an omelet.

Obama surrogate Rep. Donna Edwards told CNN today,
“Voters may not care about Benghazi, but they care about Bin Laden.”

Jim Hoft reported this at Gateway Pundit... did this idjit really say this? OMG.

Have Blue

Believe the Koch brothers pronounce it 'coke'.

PD

Edwards: Another attempt to imply that the furor over Benghazi is due only to RR politicizing it, and that it's not a "real" issue.

Edwards apparently thinks we don't care that Americans died. Apparently thinks we don't care that an American citizen was arrested to distract from this administration's inaction.

I conclude that she doesn't care about these things, and thinks we're just like her. Why would I reach any other conclusion?

narciso

Yes, she did, Steph, three years before 9/11
Bin Laden had pulled off a sizable strike against American interests in Eastern Africa, not long after that was the first PDB, 'that dare not speak it's name'

Sara

How many of you knew who the Koch brothers were before you identified with the tea party?

The first time I heard their name, or should say, saw their name, was during the demonstrations in Madison, WI. When I saw the signs, I looked the name up and found a ton of nasty stuff from lefty sites.

So they are going with the Million Muppet March on Nov 3rd. Seriously?

The Enhanced ACME Election Manual evidently mandates butt chugging before strategy sessions.

Who knew?!?

Eric in Boise

Looks like the "cokes" have it, thanks, all.

Goodnight.

I couldn't make that up, that's bgates or jim ryan's angle, Steph.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki
Plans to save Big Bird, the fuzzy yellow character on U.S. public television's "Sesame Street," from possible extinction are taking shape in the form of a puppet-based protest next month dubbed the "Million Muppet March.

Doesn't really need any embellishment does it?

Eric in Boise

Oh, and one more thing, the song "Hot Rod Lincoln" has Idaho roots.

Just thought you'd like to know :)

narciso

I think I saw the Star Gate, right behind me, I mean this is some alternate universe.

Captain Hate

As long as they're concentrating on the important issues. Voters care about funding the leeches at PBS yet not about 4 dead Americans in Benghazi. Pure jeenyus.

Speaking of taxpayer funded parasites, the Restraining Order is pulling out all stops with new misleading ads. Strangely enough, none of them brag about supporting BammyCare or any of his votes other than a bizarre fantasy about having saved the auto industry.

Ah Durwood, as Endora might call him, what is his default 'look squirrel' exercise.

DoT, Yahoo sports has Tuesday's game as Verlander vs. Sabathia, so CC will be going on short rest. I seem to recall that not working out so well last year, but my memory is a bit foggy.

Yes, Gus, that's who they referring to,

What an amazing comeback by the Cardinals. 7 - 7.

Hope they win so that we don't have to listen to Carney's Bulls#$% us about baseball, and DC can start focusing on getting some honest answers out of the crooks in Washington.

Yeehow! 9 - 7 Cardinals up. Astonishing!

daddy

Anybody else watching this game?

Some Guy

daddy, incredible comeback. How many times did them come down to the last strike?

Gus

The Cards did this same shyte last year.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

i'm watching, daddy. St. Louis is tough to beat. Old Yogi was right.

daddy

It is amazing Some Guy.

Sorry for any other Nat's fans out there but I want them to lose because it appears Jay Carney likes them.

Go to Hell Washington DC!

Gus

Jack is Back. Both of my Parents are buried at Arlington. It is beyond Special.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

Another wild card team in the championship series. I wouldn't be betting on the Jints.

daddy

Boy, Do I hope Obama and Biden look as sullen and shellshocked come 7 November as the Nat's Bench looks this instant on the Tube.

narciso

That twit Gregory was tweeting about them, during the Benghazi hearings,

Elliott

Ask not over whom the bus rolls...

Some Guy

Descalso was just named player of the game, which is cool because we know him. Good kid and came up clutch.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

It's silly to say, but I am now not nearly so disappointed in the Braves losing that one shot playoff to the Cards.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

The Yanks are the only team with home field advantage to have won this round. Weird.

daddy

For those not paying attention, the Cardinals clawed back from a 6 - 0 deficit.

What that tells me is that if you elect some good men from outside the Beltway, you can overcome the Deficit and beat Washington, no matter how daunting that task appears and no matter how many curve balls they throw at you.

jimmyk

Particularly men from the midwest, daddy.

Gus

The Cardinals franchise is beyond blessed.

Gus

I am a Brewers fan, and the Brewers have been to ONE World Series. They lost to St Louis in 7.
Last year, the Brewers (now in the NL) won the division, but lost to St Louis in the NL Championship.

Drat.

daddy

"Ask not over whom the bus rolls..."

Beautiful Elliott, just wonderful. Ha!

daddy

Flyover country, JimmyK, Flyover country! Ha!

BTW, I luv watching Prince Fielder at bat. And I can't wait to see CC Sabathia hustle down to first:)

Axe spikes the ball in the 3rd inning. But no follow up tweet? Isn't spin his job? Surely there's someone on the campaign that could figure out a funny way to wipe the doo doo off of his shoe. How about the best writer on the staff, the President?

Danube of Thought

The hot stove league will have a great deal to say about the Strasburg decision in the long winter months to come.

Good friend of mine pronounced his name like Coke. The NY mayor called it Kotch.

Gus

It's pronounced STALIN.
Man of Steel.
Joe Stalin.

The Koch situation is a pathetic LIBTARD joke.

SOROS. Pronounced Stalin OR SORE ASS.

Danube of Thought

Preference cascade? Let's hear it from none other than the Associated Press:

"SIDNEY, Ohio — The crowds tell the story. As Election Day nears, Mitt Romney is drawing large and excited throngs. Look to dusty Iowa cornfields, rain-soaked Virginia parks, the muddy fields of the Shelby County Fairgrounds, where a crowd of 9,500 — almost half of this western Ohio town — gathered among the barns and stables on a frigid October evening this week to glimpse the Republican presidential contender. 'Where else would we want to be?' said one of the shivering faithful, Judy Cartwright, a 71-year-old nurse from Sidney. 'I want to see the next president of the United States.'"

Where are the trolls?

BR

Carney: "The President is always briefed and brought up to speed on all the precautions being taken."

I just about fall on the floor with laughter at that image. How do you bring a toddler on a bicycle up to speed.

Or maybe like the bicycle taxi drivers in Kenya.
