"If the government robs Peter to pay Paul, he can count on the continued support of Paul.

Thursday, February 18, 2010


"His manifesto clearly reveals bitterness and resentment toward the IRS, the tax system, the banker and Big Business government bailouts, and the emergence of police-state attitudes and actions in the aftermath of 9/11. He expressed disdain for "the monsters of organized religion." He talked about his move from California to Texas. He referred to a divorce and the way his savings and retirement had been wiped out after a career of working '100-hour workweeks.'"

Obama / Biden: Can’t Keep Their “Stimulus” Lies Straight

"Sooo we’ve gotten our moneys worth huh? 10% unemployment, actually 18%+ when you count those who have given up looking for a job… and we got our money’s worth? We spent $862,000,000,000 ($1.3 trillion with interest) that we don’t have (we dug out nation further into debt) and, by the way Joe we lost another 2,000,000 jobs last year. We didn’t save 2 million jobs, we lost over 2 million jobs… and we got our money’s worth? Are these guys nuts!?

"These are the same clowns that said that if we passed their so-called “stimulus” boondoggle, that unemploment would go over 8%… would you say that the stimulus has done it’s job?"

Guardian: We're Anti-War, But We Can't Be Anti-Obama

"Well, this is a load of whatever they call such a load over there. If you read it, there's no logical reason at all for them not being as anti-war as they were under Bush - except that it's Obama's war, now. They even point out Obama's flawed strategy of announcing an exit a year out. But they still end up concluding, well, ... what else can we do but support it."

Reason.tv: Dramatic Olbermann vs. Dramatic Chipmunk or, Premature Obit for the Capt. Queeg of cable news

No one is more self-dramatizing on cable news than male hysteric, unsolicited janitor of Cooperstown, and Countdown host Keith Olbermann, who includes more special effects during his Castro-length “Special Comment” segments than Mikhail Kalatozov did in I Am Cuba (one cinematically exemplary rant remains Commandante O’s multi-camera denouncement of Hillary Clinton during the 2008 campaign).

When Olbermann is not ripping “tea-baggers” (get it, har har har) or slagging honest reporters such as Miami Herald TV critic and Reason contributing editor Glenn Garvin (who committed the unpardonable crime of reporting that Olbermann donned a Bill O’Reilly mask and did Nazi salutes in front of a room full of TV critics), he is courageously taking a stand in favor of English-only at schools, judging Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News as “worse than Al Qaeda,” and extolling Sen. All Aboard Amtrak, Joe Biden, who embodies the Holy Trinity of Olbermannia: “passion, detail and eloquence.”

Countdown—it’s like Rupert Pupkin finally did get a talk show that could broadcast far past the paneled walls of Mom’s basement and reach most of the neighborhood—is must-see TV, as riveting as a nail gun powered by nuclear energy on steroids, the sort of can’t-turn-away-from-car-wreck-like commentary usually associated with CNN hosts who have actually been in car wrecks (like this guy and this one).

And yet, even (or perhaps especially) in Obama’s America, where Dick Cheney is still making millions of ill-gotten gains by keeping unemployment high and sending troops to the Middle East and Central Asia to secure Haliburton’s ultra-lucrative tapioca concessions, there are signs that this world was never meant for one as beautiful as Olbermann.

“Has the countdown begun for the end of ‘Countdown with Keith Olbermann’?” asks The New York Post. “With his ratings in free-fall, and his hateful histrionics reaching new highs, even Olbermann’s former supporters on the left are tuning out.” Indeed, The Los Angeles Times reports, “In the most desirable TV demographic of 25-54, which Keith will soon outgrow himself, ‘Countdown’ lost 44% of its audience from the beginning of President Obama’s term until this year.”

As a public service, and before Keith Olbermann joins the likes of failed talk show hosts such as Jerry Lewis, Chevy Chase, J.D. Hayworth, and former ESPN colleague Craig Kilborn, it’s worth remembering just how damn good Olbermann was before he lost the pop on his bat and could no longer backpedal with the sun in his eyes.

Like some small-screen, basic-cable Capt. Queeg without the strawberry fetish, Olbermann was staying up late and counting and recounting his vote for the Worst Person In The World (surprise! Bill O’Reilly won again!) while the rest of us were tearing it up on the playing fields of Princeton the Xbox version of NCAA Football. While the rest of us were arguing about politics, going to work every day, paying our taxes, protesting stupid policies…who was standing guard over this fat, dumb, happy country of ours, eh? Not us. Oh, no, we knew you couldn’t make any money in the service in cable TV. So who did the dirty work for us? Queeg Olbermann did! And a lot of other guys. Tough, sharp guys who didn’t crack up like Queeg Olbermann.

Before he descends to that green room below, the one where you have to do your own makeup and bring your own Evian (which is really tap water poured into a bottle you found behind the local 7-11) and use a Johnny-on-the-Spot (or better yet, just hold it until your 30-second spot is over and you can use the can in the nearby Waffle House, as gross as it is), gaze upon Olbermann throwing down against the single most dramatic figure on this damnable series of tubes we’ve come to rely on even more than latter-day Eric Sevareids and low-rated, histrionic opinion journalists.

And as Olbermann fades from memory even though he’s still on the air, like Diagnosis: Murder or DeGrassi Junior High, The Joe Franklin Show, and Oliver North’s War Stories, all of which may well be producing new episodes, ask yourself: Didn’t he take it to the chipmunk (which is not really a chipmunk, we know) like a pro? Go tell the Spartans, or at least Roger Ailes, that this was one Cool Hand Luke who could really take a punch!

Phil Elmore: We're all on Obama's enemies list

"When Barack Hussein Obama's audacious power grabs affect the daily lives of broad swaths of our citizenry, as they do whenever he targets consumer technology, many people are rightly alarmed. We've seen this over and over again. He and his storm troopers want to be able to track your phone without a warrant and whenever it suits them. Will it be such a leap when they decide your phone calls are no more private than your GPS location data? These are the people, after all, who want to control the Internet (when they're not turning over control of key portions of its infrastructure to foreign powers). These are also the people who set up an e-mail address so your fellow citizens could inform on you to Glorious Leader Obama whenever you dared to express an opinion contrary to the Democratic Party line."

I feel like Dirty Harry. Make my day.

The most convoluted Tea Party=RAAACIST smear ever

"By all accounts, Bishop was extremely liberal and a huge Obama fan (to the point of being described by someone who knew her as being obsessed with Obama).

"But in keeping with the attempt to smear as crazy the Tea Party movement specifically, and anyone who is not a Democrat generally, now comes the inevitable attempt to link the Tea Parties and Bishop, centered on a charge of shared racism."
