If the AA meeting is code for Alcohol All In, then it might well be the answer. It seems to me Bob was a prescription drug and alcohol combination abuser back in the day...

Extraneus

Won't it be more than three months? When was her last public appearance?

Jack is Back!

Need 67 to over-ride a veto in the Senate and 290 in the House.

DOA. But that is good because it will demonstrate bipartisanship at its ultimate - American Energy Independence from those Armed Insurgents and Religion of Peace.

GMax

Might be just enough time for Betty Ford to dry out Hill...

GMax

The goal is not necessarily to win the fight, its more to define Zero and the Democrats as out of the mainstream on a whole host of issues. This will force Zero to vote something other than Present. Clarifying for a lot of folks...

glasater

Juan is more clever and funny and if a prog has to be on that show makes a better replacement for Beckel.

And I think new lurker is absolutely correct in the body/face makeover for Hillary and with Soylent's assessment...

Soylent Red

Might be just enough time for Betty Ford to dry out Hill...

Maybe she's having brain surgery for her TIA damage...getting fitted for some new fishbowl glasses or something.

Soylent Red

She is supposed to testify at the Benghazi hearings so they'll have to get the old broad looking presentable in time for that.

daddy

I thought we were promised that the 5 Terrorists "Armed Insurgents" we traded from Gitmo for Private Bergdahl were going to sit on the sidelines and be good boys in Qatar for a period of at least 1 full year before starting to do bad stuff:

Officials: Detainee swapped for Bergdahl suspected of militant activities

one of them has "reached out" to try to encourage militant activity, one official said. The official would offer no further details.

Under current law, this act placed the man in the category of being "suspected" of re-engaging in terrorist or insurgent activities.

Obviously this CNN story is false since as a Taliban member, by definition he cannot engage in Terrorist activities.

daddy

UH oh!...

GMax

Bergdahl is a Sergeant at least until they bust him back down once they charge him with desertion...

Extraneus

She is supposed to testify at the Benghazi hearings

According to lying scumbag Elijah Cummings. I'd bet money on that never happening. Just a ruse.

Soylent Red

Obviously this CNN story is false since as a Taliban member, by definition he cannot engage in Terrorist activities.

Oh my...

Despite my previous rant, it appears the Afgoneeston Tollybon killed or wounded nearly 70 civilians today, including at least one child.

Definitely not terrorism. Definitely not Muslims. Definitely not.

Jack is Back!

Wake me up in 2016 as far as the POTUS nomination process is concerned. I would rather talk about ISIS, the threat of Iran, Israel's security, our own security, the abuse of our constitution vis a vis an attorney general and POTUS who think we are all rubes and all other myriad issues facing this country NOW, not when Mitt, Jeb, Rand or Marco decide to start raging against the machine.

the funniest thing I've read all day.

evening all.

Happy Birthday Mrs. Boatbuilder. And a Happy Birthday to Judith. Wish your were here.

PDinDetroit

Hey Mr Tollybon

daddy

"I'm shocked, shocked, to find out that "Terrorism" is going on here! Round up Release the usual suspects!"

Mad Jack

Since this has turned into a terror thread- Hillary and the Taliban - I'd like to mention BALLGAZI: The NFL has confirmed my suspicion that they write nothing down at the start of the game about the PSI levels of the footballs...but you can be assured that the ref checked every ball before the game. Uh huh.

Extraneus

Imagine that evil hag, holed up in her lair while the Democrats all stand aside for her coronation, coddled by the media as they try to drag her tired carcass over the finish line, only to to be broken by someone like Scott Walker.

Whew. I think I need a cold shower.

Janet - I wish my family had a poncho

When is Netenyahu supposed to speak before Congress?

daddy

for me the most iconic moment ever in Redskins history was the photo of Riggo... singing to "Sandy Baby" (Sandra Day O'Conner:)

Soylent Red

Whew. I think I need a cold shower.

Thoughts of Hillary Clinton have probably thwarted more erections than hard liquor and baseball statistics combined.

And I'm just talking about Bill.

Mad Jack

"evil hag" + "lair"

I think we have a winner. Good work Ext!

daddy

Hi, Try Hang Gliding!

Good to see you're here and still in one piece:)

RickB

Three months to molt? She must be low on eye of newt.

Soylent Red

She must be low on eye of newt.

Mr Ballard:

They wanted to sacrifice a virgin to the Dark Lord, but they couldn't find one whose father would let her get within a mile of Bill.

daddy

Josh Ernest: They do carry out, uhhh, tactics, uhhh, that are akin to Terrorism. They do pursue Terror attacks in an effort to advance their agenda.

Wonder how that might go over in a travel let's say for Racially based Hate Crimes:

Perp: Your Honor, I did engage in tactics that are akin to Racist Hate Crimes, but I am not a Racist, therefore I'm not guilty of engaging in Racist Hate Crimes.

Soylent Red

Something akin to not paying taxes.

Something akin to the tactics of bank robbery.

She was something akin to receptive of my advances.


Works with all kinds of things daddy.

Jack is Back!

daddy,

Riggo was a sort, wasn't he?

I do not think Mitt is running but only teasing out the field. In fact, I think he is going to be Scott Walker's biggest supporter. You heard it hear first,

Strawman Cometh

Speaking of Top Men of the GOPe. Hatch has declared that "Throughout her confirmation hearing, Ms. Lynch has demonstrated her qualifications and made specific commitments to work with Congress. I plan to support her nomination and will seek to help ensure that she upholds her commitments to enforce the law."

http://hotair.com/archives/2015/01/29/orrin-hatch-lindsey-graham-leaning-towards-confirming-loretta-lynch-as-ag/

Why are our guys so stupid?

RickB

Soylent,

She may have been hoping for the same deal with Mephistopheles that Bubba got and found out that Bubba actually made a twofer trade without telling her.

GMax

Krauthammer just compared favorably, Guantanamo to Belgium...

daddy

She is supposed to testify at the Benghazi hearings

According to lying scumbag Elijah Cummings

I believe I heard Cummings say that she said she would be available to testify in December or January. Since it's January 29th, it is an impossibility to have her testify per that timescale, and from here on out I believe she and the Dem's will play the "She offered to testify but you Republicans didn't call her" Game, so they'll now announce that she was willing to testify, but the Republicans didn't really want to call her, trumpeting that this is all just an unserious Republican political charade designed to make her look bad.

Ignatz

--It may have been a short season but man what memories.--

I've always figured the Skins lucked out that year.
The Raiders were undefeated but Jimmy Plunkett had his only bad big game in the playoffs against the worthless Jets and lost.
The next year of course the Raiders destroyed the Redskins in the Super Bowl.

Soylent Red

Mr. Ballard:

But imagine Mephistopheles' shock in finding out that Hillary has less soul than the Carpenters.

I guess that's what he gets for doing business with the real Master of Lies.

Jack is Back!

SC,

Once she talked about her race and her dad and her upbringing it was a done deal. How dare the GOPe dare to discuss race as an issue.

Its only a vote of 90-10 versus 60-40. We'll see.

DOOM™

Strawman Cometh

Special Report panel just covered today's Hillary! newsnippet. None of them offered the insight that she was drying out. Another illustration of why JOM is my #1 source for news and analysis.

Sorry about your pooch, Lyle.

Soylent Red

Why are our guys so stupid?

Lindsay Graham is a man?!!11!111!!!!1!

Hey,

DrK just used my "I'm shocked, shocked," line re: the traded Taliban "Terrorists."

Makes me wonder what's DrK's degree of separation from Kim K's arse is?

Stephanie

http://www.mediaite.com/online/chris-christies-pac-has-the-best-unintentional-acronym/

This actually is pretty funny.

daddy

Definitely not terrorism.

Correct, Soylent,

Otherwise the Taliban's gross act of destroying the 2000 year old huge Buddhist Statues in Afghanistan would be equivalent to ISIS's destruction today of the 3000 year old walls of ancient Ninevah in Iraq.

If people can't see the obvious difference between the actions of an Armed Insurgency in the one case and the act of Terrorists in the other, I don't think I can be of any more help in explaining it.

daddy

On the plus side, since they broke the Agreement, perhaps that means the deal is off, so maybe we can round up the 5 Talibaners and stick 'em back in Gitmo, and give Bergdahl back to the Armed Insurgents.

Soylent Red

and give Bergdahl back to the Armed Insurgents.

Don't forget about getting our money back too.

centralcal

Several times I have posted here about what a complete narcissist Jedidiah Bila is.

Every day, she posts pictures of herself or retweets pictures of herself taken by others. Today she posted this doozie of a selfie.

I know ALL the men of JOM will like this!!

daddy

I do not think Mitt is running but only teasing out the field.

If so Jack, then why is he now jumping on the Global Warming Bandwagon? That's baffling me totally. I have to think he is a smart enough guy to see through that BS, so I cannot understand why for no reason he is stepping up and giving the matter Legitimacy, unless he is trying to present himself as the new, improved, unSevere Conservative.

I cannot see how jumping on that AGW pandering bandwagon does anything except enhance his image amongst the Left.

henry

Cc: she appears to enjoy that view even more than I do. Confirm on complete narcissist.

Jim Miller

daddy - Saw your question the other evening, but was too tired to give it justice.

If I recall correctly, you were wondering what was going on with the caucus votes here in Washington, against Common Core.

I can give you only half an answer. The big teacher's union, the Washington Education Association, is against anything that might mean members are judged by test results -- so our Democrats are going to be against Common Core.

I am not sure about the Republicans. Most have been friendly to common sense education reforms -- as I would define them, but they haven't had much effect on education policy, for years and years, since they haven't been in charge, and the Democrats have mostly been unified on most education issues. (The Republican/fiscally sane Democrat state senate coalition did write a budget that increased education funding in the last session, while blocking any significant new taxes.)

One thing that might be affecting the Republicans' thinking is the McCleary decision, in which our top court ordered the legislator to increase funding for education. They are currently holding the legislature in contempt for not spending enough.

That's enough to irritate almost any legislator, and one or two have shown their feelings.

(I am not a lawyer -- and don't even play one on TV, for which all you should be grateful -- but I am inclined to think the decision was a terrible over reach. We do elect judges here so we have a chance to get rid of the miscreants, but there weren't any significant challengers last time around.)

Jim Miller

daddy - And now a frivolous question for you: Did you happen to know any pilots who were helping McDonalds in Japan out.

(I wrote about that, earlier today.)

RickB

I agree with JiB wrt Sir Goldilocks. I see no evidence of him having purchased media shills and it ain't like there are none available. He's helping make it difficult to isolate a target, as are others, and I can't fault a "candidate on every street corner" approach while the Alinskyite crone is still thumping in her coffin.

Jim Miller

Sorry for the bad link. This one should work.

centralcal

henry: She posted that to let her Twitter followers know she would be on Lou Dobbs and Hannity. I kinda don't think she is wearing that on either program tonight. Do you?

Jane

I think Jedadiah is looking for a date.

Why are our guys so stupid? Why is Romney's son planning of running against Mike Lee and not Hatch? Why are these fools reelected over and over? Why oh why oh why?

Janet - I wish my family had a poncho

JiB, thanks for the bus link.

henry

Cc, I don't know what Dobbs / Hannity guests wear, but that outfit looks more fit for Springer.

centralcal

I think Jedadiah is looking for a date.

No doubt. All day. Every day. Almost every Tweet she posts photos of herself.

You'd think she'd have quite a few dates by now.

centralcal

Well, conservative women are certainly attractive.

Or, maybe she is libertarian?

daddy

They are currently holding the legislature in contempt for not spending enough.

Interesting, Jim Miller.

So in your State the Taxpayers vote against Taxing and Spending for a new Football Stadium but the Politicians blow them off and build it anyhow. Now the Politicians decide not to vote for taxing and spending for more School funding but the Judges blow them off and tell them to do it anyhow.

Somehow, I'm pleased that they take it in the shorts every once in a while.

Latest big stink up here is this move by Washington State: Plan to allow Shell oil drilling fleet in Seattle draws ire

SEATTLE (AP) - A plan to allow Royal Dutch Shell PLC to use Seattle's waterfront as a homeport for its Arctic drilling fleet is drawing opposition from environmental groups that say it's not consistent with the region's environmental goals.

Several state and national groups, and local city leaders on Wednesday urged the Port of Seattle to halt lease negotiations that would allow Shell to use 50 acres of port property across from downtown Seattle.

I would love to see reciprocity, and for Alaska to "tit for tat" refuse to allow any Fishing and Shrimping Boats docked in Seattle in Wintertime to be allowed to do any fishing in Alaskan Waters come summertime.

Sid Gillman had Madden, Coryell, Jack Faulkner, Al Davis and Chuck Knoll.

I have never understood why they haven't put Coryell in the Hall of Fame.

daddy

Did you happen to know any pilots who were helping McDonalds in Japan out.

Jim Miller, I can't find which post of yours is on that topic. Please print the title of it and I'll read it after the dog walk. At the moment I have heard nothing about it at all.

Later.

Dartmouth claims to take the lead on eliminating hard alcohol on campus.
They're a bit late--Notre Dame did that at least a decade ago.
(With great reduction in it's alcohol poisoning ER visits.)

Things are about to get really bad in Venezuela. Standard fascist response to OPM famine is shooting the protesters-- even though the Venezuelan constitution prohibits the use of lethal force on protests. This is why fascists push gun control, they don't want anyone to shoot back at their thugs. The thugs are cleared to shoot Venezuelans immediately.

Jim Miller

daddy - Here's the post.

The McDonalds part is in a single, parenthetical paragraph. Which I think would amuse most of you.

Stephanie

Looks kinda like that dress that Sith (Jamie Alexander) had on at that awards thing that I posted several months ago.

sbw

to do away with . . . other groups that fail “to elevate and not denigrate the Dartmouth experience.”

Like the administration? Sizable tuition cut with that move. Alums must appreciate the president resigning like that.

Buckeye

Terps taking a serious thumping tonight

Captain Hate

I have never understood why they haven't put Coryell in the Hall of Fame.

Probably because he never made it to the Super Bowl. He still revolutionized the game in ways that merit inclusion, as Madden and Gibbs have made clear. I know life isn't fair but that is just stupid.

Captain Hate

Jesus, that must've been a horrible second half.

Terps are still a young team except for Dez Wells and Jake Layman and I think the other B1G teams are preparing for them a lot better. Buckeyes will never be without talent because Thad Matta is a recruiting machine second only to Calipari; so tonight isn't totally unexpected,

Miss Marple

Buckeye, IU got thumped by Purdue last night. My sympathies.

Captain Hate

Is this software eating comments or just really really slow?

Buckeye

Dez Wells was impressive. Big enough and strong enough to fill the paint and own it when he needed to.

This Russell kid that Thad found is really special. Doubt if he will stay more than a season.

Finally, a topic in The Washington Post that their Staffs and teams of Editors might actually know something about.

And here you guys thought such a thing would never happen.

Janet - I wish my family had a poncho

Henry's 8:31 post is something.

matt

The NFL was lucky half of its players didn't do time back in the Coryell era. Between the drugs and the craziness, i am surprised some of them have survived.

North Dallas Forty was one of the best books on that time, and Jenkins not only used the Cowboys, but Coryell's Chargers as inspiration.

The best apocryphal story was the one about Fouts getting shot in the ass as he was climbing out a window where he shouldn't have been. Muncie, Joiner and Winslow were high as kites in most games.

Heck, the whole stadium was nutso. It was heaven. And every time the Raiders showed up bad things happened.

I loved the Biletnikoff Stabler Raiders and Marcus Allen is a real man, but overall, that team was way out of bounds.

When people die in fights because of a frickin game, that's wrong.

Haven't been lurking for the past few days, and just back-read the posts about Diva.

Captain Hate

JiB, I don't know why it escaped me until now that Gibbs was a Coryell product and that he was a major part of Air Coryell. Maybe his experiences of the team falling short made him think he needed a more run-centric offense. He certainly had huge offensive linemen in both settings although they were mostly used as tanks to protect Fouts rather than pulling and running the Counter Trey.

Janet - I wish my family had a poncho

We sure don't hear much about Venezuela falling apart from the MFM.

Everything is a mess. This is one evil administration....

Captain Hate

I loved the Biletnikoff Stabler Raiders and Marcus Allen is a real man, but overall, that team was way out of bounds.

They were the only team that would trade shot for shot with the Steelers at that time and never back down. I made a point to clear my schedule when those games were on.

According to her wiki, she was a former academic
Dean before she got into commentary. She was a supporter of the Huntress and at least hasn't been adverse to her, like say Jennifer rubin.

Re the doha 5, they raise more questions than have been answered. Are they still in doha, Afghanistan or somewhere in between. Who in Qatari mubathat tipped us off.

JiM Miller,

I knew nothing, nothing at all Sir, about the Potato Airlift in December:) Usually we only know what we have on board if it's alive (dogs, horses, bears, cows, chickens, walruses, seals), perishable (new cut Mother's Day Flowers) or dangerous (radiation, etc).

Carrying that stuff we have to be advised about what temps to keep stuff at or if we need to do very slow descents in order to not hurt animal eardrums. Other than that we are relatively ignorant.

By chance I am heading west tomorrow for a few weeks so I'll ask if we've got potatoes on board:) And if the Super Bowl is Sunday hopefully I'll be at The Malibu in Taipei jabbering with barmaid Deloris at kickoff.

Janet - I wish my family had a poncho

Nick Miroff works for NPR too.

The rape culture meme - http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/01/23/the-media-is-making-college-rape-culture-worse.html

"And it all began in 2010. That year, reporters at National Public Radio teamed up with the left-leaning journalism organization Center for Public Integrity (CPI) to produce and promote a 104-page “investigative reporting series” (PDF) entitled “Sexual Assault on Campus: A Frustrating Search for Justice.” "

I'm not mixing Miroff into the "rape culture" narrative crap, but the WaPo, NPR, & CPI are just one big leftist propaganda machine.

Publius of Idaho

Let's move it all the way back to George Blanda and Ben Davidson.

Btw the manic reporter who slimed Chris Kyle, used to work for aljaze era then cnn, so my point is still valid

Although I don't care too much about the NFL anymore I really do miss the fervor with which I rooted for those silver and black criminals.

Blanda's time at the Raiders was when Lamonica was the starting quarterback.
