Daddy (& Some Guy), Zeke, not Rahm. Zeke is the oncologist / medical (lack of) ethicist. Although Rahm would push the policy and say that.


Correct Lyle, my mistake.

Obama: “ Maybe you're better off to tell your mother to take a pill, take a painkiller."

I wonder how angry Zeke and Obama got at Jesus for raising Lazarus from the dead?

38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said.

“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”

40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”

43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.

Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”

Zeke Emanuel: What the hell are you doing, Jesus?

Obama: Yeah. The guy was dead. He'd lived long enough. Why go and raise him? What's up with that?


BOBBY JINDAL PUNCHES BACK TWICE AS HARD: Jindal to screen Planned Parenthood videos outside mansion.


Mark Levin gave some very deserved praise to Jindal for this at the end of Hour 1.

Nice to hear Levin when he praises folks.


Three words, Ex: phase change memory. Watch for some big announcements before year end by some big tech cos.


As rse knows only too well, commie prog types never rest, and feel the right to tamper with everything. This morning on the way to work I discovered as part of Di Blasio's anti-automobile project, known as vision zero, one less lane of automobile traffic to put in a bike lane. Which means that in the winter months, a perfectly usable lane will be unused. It's in a working class area of Queens, where there are very few bicycle riders. Go ahead and install your stupid lanes where the hipsters are, not where the people trying to get to work to support the takers commute. end of rant. LUN


Lyle and Dave, sorry for jumping ahead and repeating that fabulous Jindahl story. (It was worth it)

W/R/T Hillary not "thinking it through". I'm of the very strong opinion that we need a president who knows how to think things thru.


anti-automobile project, is exactly right.

Arlington is painting bike lanes & narrowing our roads all over town.
What kills me is that bikes can already use the roads. They always could. There is no reason to do this except to discourage cars.

We had great roads for an urban area..but they are bound & determined to clutter them up.


Hillary not "thinking it through"

How odd.

Here's Hillary in 2007, damning Bush for Secret E-mails. “We know our Constitution is being shredded. We know about the secret wiretaps, the secret military tribunals, the secret White House email accounts.”

Then, after she becomes Secretary of State, she forgets what she said in 2007 and decides instead that Secret E-mails are wonderful?

How does that logic work? I need somebody to help me "Think It Through."


When I was 20 or 21 I attended the 1975 Democratic Party convention in Lower Manhattan. All of the candidates spoke. Bella was quite charming in a New York way. Schap, a former neighbor, was a drone. Fred Harris,my guy, was a midwestern populist railing against the oil crisis. Carter came in and gave a speech that was so fake earnest and clueless that I never thought he had a chance. What did I know?

Not long after I voted in a presidential election for the first time on one of those antiquated voting machines. I was probably the only Republican vote in that precinct.


Didn't HC use the "woulda-coulda-shoulda" excuse during the Whitewater-Missing Rose Law Firm files sagas 20 yrs. ago? With HillBilly the hindsight is 20-20 pass has no expiration date.


Speaking of assholes with nukes, I hope Kim is saber rattling. The headline is scary:

N. Korean leader orders military to have full readiness for war

----- any chance this is a spoof news service?


From the Ashley Madison data dump:

"I like long walks on the beach, hot, sweaty sex, and signing executive orders."

arak-bay O-nay


Also, saw a DHL delivery van with a smashed front end and a bent bicycle in front of it on my way home. No bike lane though.


Nope it's legit, frabnoud good.


The French news wire has it as well.


Matt, since AM was supposedly 95% male, Arak-Bay might have been able to find what he was looking for.


At some point, the days of re-booting will also be over.

Except that rebooting is mainly because of system and software updates, not because of any need to turn the computer off.


Janet, re bike lanes, remember this image from Tim Blair?


Yes, jimmyk!

City governments purposefully ruining the roads. It's crazy.

We've got roundabouts at four way stops.  I'm not kidding.

Discourage individual motorists. It's no doubt IC/LEI or sumpin' like that.

--known as vision zero--

Um, could they have given it a more unintentionally funny (and accurate) title?


My husband is a serious bike rider, so I have nothing against bikes.
In the past, bikes stayed to the right & went with the flow of traffic. No big deal.
Now with the painted lines...the bike riders come out further into traffic with that painted line giving them a false sense of protection.
It is all so needless.

Peter Wood says in NRO "We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it any more and as staid Republicans we will learn to stifle ourselves because that's the polite thing to do especially if it means we get to lose with dignity".

Captain Hate on the iPad

To answer Jane's question without looking it up, I think Carter had at least two sons, and maybe more, about whom you heard nothing before the old goat knocked up Rosalyn very late in life with Amy.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Carter has three sons and Amy.

Jim Miller

The Carters "have three sons, one daughter, eight grandsons, three granddaughters, and two great-grandsons".

They were married in 1946, so they are second in marriage lengths among American presidents, after George and Barbara Bush.

(I can think of have a dozen snarky things to add to those basic facts -- but in the circumstances, I won't.)



For RSE.

Man Tran

Tap tap tap. Is this thing on?
