They say that DC is "hot as Hell" in the summer. I see the high tomorrow is 30F.

Has Hell frozen over ?

C-Span is unwatchable.

I like George Bush. Perfection, no. But beware the approaching tsunami of PC at him. I forecast nauseous but hope it fizzles.

Yeah, because Dubya was famous for his lack of physical fitness.

I'm reliably informed that helping wives with the yard and housework is really the best way to stay toned. Want a six pack? Haul in the groceries.

The Dalai Lama, a lifelong champion of non-violence on Saturday candidly stated that terrorism cannot be tackled by applying the principle of ahimsa because the minds of terrorists are closed.
This may point to a real problem for "The One"

btw, I really hate to give Slick credit for anything positive but, maybe because of the heart attack, he's gone from being a tubbo to looking pretty slim. Although when he was in office the shots in jogging shorts of those pasty fat-woman legs were truly vomit-inspiring.

In an interview with ESPN, Robinson described Obama's floor game like this: Barack is a left-handed player who can only go to his left. He's got a long frame. He'd rather drive than shoot. He isn't much of a passer.
Captain Hate

Thanks bad; I was beginning to think that I was getting no responses to some of my comments because I was being overly offensive, which I can be at times.

Neo, we didn't need Robinson to tell us O can only go to his left and would rather drive than shoot. Left is his nature and shooting exposes one to failure.

Yikes, this thread has already taken a strange turn indeed, but it's all in good fun. So Glenn Beck's on, and well I'll have to watch for obvious reason; the Herald's only conservative tv commentator, Glenn Garvin, who wrote the only good book on the Contras in the 80s "Everybody had his Own Gringo; the CIA and the Contras"(the title is quite misleading)does a profile of him, with the lead guest on the second to last paragraph, on his turn to libertarianism; that seems to be the orientation here, at least on economic grounds. The crisis atmosphere behind the TARP was the final straw, of course, back on the farm, the cows aren't finished chewing their cud; or some other apt Ratherism. Wonder if he'll push on that angle in the interview with her. Of course, glorious coverage of the Obamapalooza yesterday, including in the Post. Well Murdoch lived under Wilson and Gough Whitlam, so it's not surprising, although a little disappointing. So Liz Smith has kind of half retracted her claws, on the subject, as a postscript on the new America; basically saying I told you so
many months back, in her original commentary
on the Mayer piece

George Bush defenses will continue for at least four years and very likely four decades because everything that goes wrong (or fails to go right) will continue to be blamed on him.

Clarice,

Interesting comment over at Sweetness & Light:

While I do appreciate that someone is keeping tabs on these loser Nazi-wannabes, shouldn’t the SPLC be far more concerned with the group that is the true threat to black America? The group that rapes, robs, shoots, stabs, murders and addicts more innocent black men, women and children every single day in these United States of America than the Klan could have ever dreamed of doing: Black street gangs.

As we ponder the truly great words of a rather mediocre man (plagiary and adultery notwithstanding) today, it is of interest to note that black men killed 50% more other black men in the US in 2007 than were lynched by whites in the entire 'racist' period. The true evidence of a person's character is provided by the acts in which they engage rather than the sound in the wind which they emit.

Take Timothy Geithner for example....

Beautiful day here in central Texas. I hope the dopes in DC are freezing their Obama-style manboobs off. I hope Zero's jugears are bright red with frostbite when he takes the oath tomorrow. I won't ever know if that's the case, though, since I won't be watching.

Who knew that man-boobs would become the new "ripped"? Psst...not where I workout.

Zero is a typical gym rat type. Makes a big showy production out of how he goes to the gym every day, but you can look at him and see there's no level of fitness there.

He's all pecs, abs and shoulder work. Skinny little girl forearms and Steve Urkel legs. Doing three or four very heavy reps to build bulk and impress press groupies, but nothing for strength or endurance. I'll bet he can't run a mile at an 8:00 pace.

I used to watch it regularly until the eye-rolling at their obvious agendas removed any entertainment value.

Not only because of the annoying agenda, but because it took the suspense out of the whodunit. Any time there was an anti-abortion activist, a minister associated with the Christian right, an anti-gay rights politician, etc., you could safely assume he was the perp. If a Muslim or gay man was a suspect you could also bet the house that he would be exonerated.

...several unhappy contenders for the job have told friends and associates in recent days.... that Paterson, after nearly two months of indecision, would "greatly embarrass" and "entirely humiliate" Kennedy, anger her prominent political family and even offend President-elect Barack Obama by picking someone other than President John F. Kennedy's daughter.

Hopefully this will evolve into very nasty infighting as implied in the article. For the children... LUN

Bill Ayers was turned back at the Canadian Border last night:

Dr. William Ayers, a professor of education at the University of Illinois-Chicago and a leader in educational reform, was scheduled to speak at the Centre for Urban Schooling at University of Toronto's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. But that appearance has now been temporarily cancelled.

"I don't know why I was turned back," Ayers said in an interview this morning from Chicago. "I got off the plane like everyone else and I was asked to come over to the other side. The border guards reviewed some stuff and said I wasn't going to be allowed into Canada. To me it seems quite bureaucratic and not at all interesting ... If it were me I would have let me in. I couldn't possibly be a threat to Canada."

The pansy-ass deserters in Toronto must be sooooo disappointed. LUN

narciso

Fine let the Princess descended from saloon keepers, bootleggers and yes one President, in; it's like Paterson himself was elected; well he wasn't, And satisfy Kat Parker's aristocratic mien. She picked Biden, "the cigar store indian" so it's only fair that they return the favor. Moynihan is doing cartwheels at was has become of his former
seat.

The Harper regime, is having a little fun, keeping Ayers out of Ontario; so as not to
have him lecture on King's radicalism, Con
Ed boy's arrogance is truly astounding.

Byron York:

“His explanation was kind of, ‘I don’t know — it was stupid, obviously it was a mistake, and I don’t know why I did it,’” recalls a senator who was present during Geithner’s surprise appearance before a members-only meeting of the Senate Finance Committee last week. “What do you say to that?”

…Since their meeting with Geithner was the first time that most senators had heard of the problem, their questions were not terribly detailed; several of the queries were along the lines of “What were you thinking?” And Geithner’s answers were not terribly satisfying. “He can’t offer a specific reason,” says another source familiar with what went on at the meeting. “He doesn’t really have an answer. He just didn’t know.”

That is sooooooo reassuring....but what's he gonna say... stupid or crooked? LUN

Bush's decision to commute the sentences of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean,

These should have been pardons, IMO. In addition, I believe some of the people who caused these two agents to be jailed should be in jail themselves, because of the actions taken against the two border guards.

Canada scores one in case of enemy identification ...

An American education professor, one of the founders of a radical 1960s group known as the Weather Underground, which was responsible for a number of bombings in the United States in the early 1970s, was turned back at the Canadian border last night.

Dr. William Ayers, a professor of education at the University of Illinois-Chicago and a leader in educational reform, was scheduled to speak at the Centre for Urban Schooling at University of Toronto's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. But that appearance has now been temporarily cancelled.

centralcal

Per AP:

"Bush technically has until noon on Tuesday when President-elect Barack Obama is sworn into office to exercise his executive pardon authority, but presidential advisers said no more were forthcoming."

Pagar

If only Americans had shown the intelligence (years ago) that the Canadians showed concerning Ayers, I believe there is a very good chance we would have never heard of Obama. William Ayers has poisoned the entire US education system to the point, I do not believe it can be made usable. My guess that every single person who supports Obama has be corrupted by William Ayers and/or those who believe like he does.

Rick Ballard

Bad,

Why? is easy - he had an in at the IRS. Probably someone from an elite school, installed by RW during her reign of terror within that organ of forced submission.

If I were given the opportunity to question Treasury Secretary designate Geithner, I would (after ascertaining that the battery cable clamps had been appropriately attached - his word in other circumstances is valueless) ask him for the name[s] of the IRS official[s] who had marked his file as being unsuitable for audit. I have no doubt that it was done while he worked for Rubin as an Undersecretary but the mechanism by which Clinton elite slugs were granted universal exemption from audit could stand some exposure, given that many of the same slugs will be leaving slime trails all over DC in the near future.

While y'all were ogling the photo, I was reading the revoltin' caption:

"President-Elect Barack Obama has altered our view of what a middle-aged man can look like."

Phys Ed was Not Cool when G. Bush was jogging, so we've got no bare chested shots with which to test the "altered view" theory. On the domestic front, Obama wins The View by default (quelle surprise). V. Putin is clearly international Old Cool -- although TM will want to weigh in with an opinion here, I'm sure. Back before the paradigm shift, our own GWB definitely trumped Putin in the Mission Impossible department.

So, how long do we think it will be before PEBO appoints a personal Obama photographer? He'll certainly want to trump that John-John-in-the-Oval-Office photo, but the girls are a little old to play under the furniture. I'm looking for one or both of the Adorables in the President's chair. Since Obama is constitutionally unable to resist exploiting them for political symbolism, I suspect it will be either baby sista' earnestly signing executive orders at the First Desk, or skipping rope while big sista' does the feminist honors. The Age of Obama will give us our first female president! Dynasties are Cool again.

I expect Axelrod will recommend waiting a decent interval before doing the Kennedy-silhouette-at-the-window. They'll be using a digital photographer, so adding the halo won't be a problem. Fortunately, he'll have plenty of time to snap the vast number of 1st Family Photo Album shots that Obama will need to fill those point of purchase glossies for the grass roots in grocery store check out lines. Y'all do know that Obama plans to go over the heads of the White House press pool, and speak directly to the American people (giving the "people" in People Magazine whole new meaning), don't you? That's the New Cool. Cutting out media middlemen in DC was So Not Cool when Bush did it.

RW

BMI is useless. Completely.
Each year Arnold won the Olympia, each year Michael Jordan won the MVP, each year Emmitt Smith won a Super Bowl, their BMI levels were considered overweight. In Arnold's case, it was considered "obese".

Useless. Anyone who brings it up deserves to be ignored. BMI doesn't take into account muscle mass. Obama is fit. Bush is muscular.

bad

I blame DoT for making me read Slate:

Carter... probably has a lot to teach Bush about how to rebuild a reputation and build a fortune. At the recent gathering of ex-presidents in the Oval Office, Bush couldn't stand far away enough from Carter. That might have been his final strategic mistake.

This is a serious article but will supply you with a great deal of hilarity 'cause ya keep waiting for the whoopi cushion to explode. LUN

I wonder if Ayers has been allowed into Canada before? It isn't easy. I have a friend that had a drunk driving conviction on his record and it takes him hours to cross into Canada. There also used to be a Detroit Red Wing who couldn't play in Canada for the same reason.

Commuted,(which I'm sure someone has clarified by now. Sorry)

Bill Ayers was turned back at the Canadian Border last night:

I was on a conference call with Katie last night for "Anystreet" and she said a bunch of people have been working on the Ayers issue - he's had a number of speaking appearances canceled as a result. Good on them.

TM's link:

“I have always said that Hamas is a very rational political movement,” he said. “When they use suicide bombings, for example, it is done very consciously, based on calculations of the effectiveness of these means. You see, both sides understand the value of calculated madness. That is one reason I don’t see an early end to this ongoing war.”

NYT gives props to Hamas, point out its madness, then makes sure you know Isreal is mad too.

Hamas may may have calculated madness but it is madness nonetheless.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The wife of Vice President-elect Joe Biden let it slip that her husband had a pick of two jobs in the Obama administration.
Jill Biden said President-elect Barack Obama gave Biden the choice of being secretary of state or vice president.

Her comment came when the Bidens made a surprise appearance on Oprah Winfrey's show, recorded at the Kennedy Center.

The vice president-elect tried to hush his wife as soon as the words came out of her mouth, with a loud "shhh!"

Jill Biden said the job of vice president was better for the family, because as secretary of state he would travel too often.

Think that $20 donation to MoveOn.org means you’re a die-hard Obama supporter? Think again. True Barack fans carry the new Prez not only in their hearts, but on their skin.

The crew at Fatty’s Custom Tattooz in Washington, D.C., is gearing up for the new administration with “Obamathon.” Starting Friday and running through Inauguration Day, patrons can get a free Obama ’08 tattoo with the purchase of another tat costing $200 or more. And if a chest piece featuring the First Family isn’t fanatical enough, Fatty’s is also offering an “Obama piercing.”

My son knows that any piercings will result in the confiscation of his clothes to be replaced with women's clothes... and pink bikini underwear...

What annoys the hell out of me is that the Daily News simply asserts that the new prominence of Palin's 1984 (!) rival -- at the Obama inauguration -- will really tick Palin off.

C.R.,

Thanks for the link to Jill Biden's comment. The article doesn't say exactly when the remark was made - I wonder if this was deliberately released today for maximum depth of burial in the coronation hullabaloo.

I still don't understand why Biden was offered either position.

LOL from the comments on the Breitbart site:

"His wife probably plagiarized the comment from some British politician’s wife."

Rick Ballard

"please do Rick..take Geithner as far away from Washington as possible."

Matt,

Wouldn't be prudent. Geithner is perfectly emblematic of an administration which must be measured solely on the content of the character of its members. There is no question about Timothy Geithner's character. He has none.

That leaves an opportunity to speculate as to the reason that the man (also without discernible character) who appointed him continues in pushing him into an office for which he is obviously unfit. What is being hidden? I would submit that FDIC chair Sheila Bair's rescue of Wachovia shareholders from the depredations of Clinton Treasury Secretary "Big Thief" Rubin's Citigroup contain a seed of understanding which will grow and blossom if given a modicum of sunlight and water.

The New York Fed, under Geithner's guidance has compiled a very detailed dataset wrt subprime mortgages. It is not searchable at the Zipcode level by the public but it is by personnel employed by the Fed. It would be child's play to pinpoint mortgage fraud within any Congressional district by tracing the originator/appraiser combo back to the realtor (hi, Uncle Tony) and thence to ACORN and/or to the banks (hi, Penny - how's Secretary Rubin?) which bundled for the investment bankers (look - there's Goldman Sachs) who rent politicians on a daily basis.

Very good blackmail data for one who knows how to use it and lacks anything anything resembling character, ethics, morals or scruples (is that Tim Geitner over there?).

We must all remember always - Barry Barack Hussein Dunham Davis? Soetero Obama? entrusted the job which appears to be the most important within his cabinet to a very poor liar and a tax cheat and then stood behind him through the sham of the Senate approval process.

He's just that kind of man.

Stephanie

“As I stand here TONIGHT, what gives me the greatest hope of all is not the stone and marble that surrounds us TODAY, but what fills the spaces in between."

That is just awful.

If you notice, the "what" of "what gives me the greatest hope" is revealed at the end of the sentence to be "not the stone and marble" but the "what" of "what fills the spaces." So the formulation is: not X, but X. Unimpressive.
