Air Raid Warning

In case of attack ... kiss your ass good-bye.
Uh, maybe don't expect to be warned.
These were tested at 1000 the last Friday of each mo. until some time in the '80s. First time we heard the test (1973) we were more than a little nervous, but as no one else was running for the shelters we figured it was a test & relaxed.

And that concludes our broadcast day.

Failure Report: Fluffing The Fascists

Diane Dimond in The Daily Beast:

When we lost our CIA director, we lost four decades of expertise at a time when we need that most. Diane Dimond on the high cost of a scandal.

Paragraph Two:
This country has invested heavily in developing Petraeus into the successful and well-decorated military leader he became. And a decades-long ascension to the elite branches of government doesn’t come cheap. Look at Petraeus’s schooling alone: four years at West Point, where he graduated in 1974 in the top 5 percent of his class; Ranger School; the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College; and Princeton University, where he earned both a master’s and a Ph.D. in international relations.
Well, say no more. Nagonna read the rest, but we'll scan it for mention of "The Surge" in Afghanistan.

Nope. Her theme is that millions have been paid him & spent on his education, we can't waste that. Her theme is not that he's, like, actually competent, or that he has achieved anything beyond promotion. And that he was injured in service to his country (in training accidents). We hope he didn't contract prostate cancer in the service of these United Snakes as well, but Dimond adds that, so ...
Official Washington might be done with David Petraeus, but this is a man who has survived being shot in the chest during a training mishap, a broken pelvis from an ill-fated parachute jump, and prostate cancer. He has developed into a highly valuable commodity, and now it seems that only the corporate world will benefit from his expertise. Corporations seeking to do business with foreign governments will be lining up with open wallets to tap into Petraeus’s considerable knowledge.
We don't follow why someone w/ 40 yrs. of baby-killing experience would be so valuable to those seeking business w/ foreign nations, other than whatever the former Blackwater corporation (Whatever they're calling themselves now.) or other literal mercenary outfits.

No mention either of corporations hoping to do business w/ the military/industrial/Congressional complex. Good fucking job, DiDi.

Not To Worry, However, You'll Still Be Under Observation

A city of 23.1 square miles (60 km2) & 137,000 or so mostly snooty people w/ money needs six flying pigmobiles, it appears.

At least they share.
The Pasadena Police Department still has four flight-worthy helicopters, and the two grounded helicopters will not affect police helicopter service to Pasadena police, or any of the neighboring law enforcement agencies who also make use of Pasadena’s police helicopters.

When Pigs Fly

ALTADENA (CBSLA.com) — Two Pasadena Police choppers are damaged and six people reportedly injured after the two craft collided Saturday in Altadena.

Early reports indicate the injuries are minor.

It is also unclear how the choppers made contact.

It is not known if the accident is weather-related.

The accident occurred at the Pasadena Police Department’s heliport just after 4 p.m.

The victims were all transported to the hospital where they are being evaluated.

All the accident victims are believed to be police department employees.

A police spokesperson did not know if either craft was in the air at the time of the collision.

Sore Loser Types:
Maybe Next Wk./Next Yr.

Final: Westside Weasels 38, Authentic Urban Just South of Downtowners 28. Feeling like Mitt Romney here; too many "gifts" from one side.

We suppose that's what they get for starting a QB initialed M.B. Also: The head coach hiring his father as the defensive coördinator? Shee-yit!

It is our sincere hope that this embarrassment motivates the Men of Troy to reduce Nôtre Dame to a quivering pulp next wk.

Oh, & grudging congratulations to the Bruins. Good job, Jim Mora.

Rose Bowl Recap

We're wearing our USC ballcap, yet the effing Bruins had an interception mere seconds into the Battle for Los Angeles, & a touchdown not long after.

Somewhat conflicted here, as an SC semi-alum who gets discount dental service at the UCLA Dental School, & contemplated sleeping on the UCLA campus during our un-housed period. However, our immediate male ancestor having graduated from the University of Spoiled Children, we're going w/ Southern Cal.

Either way, the winner of this one will have the Ducks of Oregon hand them their helmets in the PAC12 championship game. We'll be happy as long as the Trojans beat the vicious Catholic MolestersFighting Irish of Nôtre Dame next wk.

Uh-oh. Field goal. UCLA 10, USC 0, zip, nada, yada.

Insurance company’s skydiving cats cause alarm (via Raw Story )

Land In Which We Happen To Live

Quite certain we've addressed this issue before. Let's see. Yup. Thought we'd specifically bitched about it being played during the seventh-inning stretch of games at Dodger Stadium (Also the fucking Yankees. How embarrassing to be linked w/ them.) perhaps not.

This arises in the context of sad weirdo Bryan Fischer (Real name: Brian Fisher.) who at least knows it sho' nuff wasn't George W(orst). Bush who "kept us safe" after ('though not before & during 11 September 2001) it was ... well:
“Have we learned? I don’t know. I think we’ve learned in part,” he continued. “One of the things we’ve done is we’ve gone to prayer at the seventh inning of every Major League Baseball game in Los Angeles, in New York and during the playoffs, and we pray, ‘God Bless America… Guide us through the night with a light from above.’”

“That’s not something that happened before 9/11. So, that’s one of the outcomes of 9/11. You have tens of thousands of baseball fans converting arenas into centers for intercessory prayer, for God to watch over, bless and guide the United States of America. And I think one of the reasons we haven’t been hit since 9/11 is that we learned that lesson.”

Demography: Destiny or not?

Via a loon-o-rama selection at Alternet, we note two items that hadn't previously appeared on our limited attention span radar. And since we're lazy as well as inattentive, we quote:
4. Conservative columnist goes full racist: “Maybe minorities' values need changing.”

There were too many racist dog whistles to count during this election season. But this column by right-winger Dennis Prager isn’t a dog whistle so much as it’s a blow horn. A big, sad, loud blow horn trumpeting a pathetic resistance to accept that women’s and minorities’ priorities are legitimate.

The headline (“Maybe Minorities' Values Need Changing”) and lines like “there is no debate over whether the minorities' (and single women's) values are correct or whether the values of the white males are correct” tell you pretty much everything you need to know about Prager and his ideas.

Oddly enough though, AlterNet readers will probably find a few things to agree with in the piece:

The Democratic Party, and the left generally, have done a magnificent job in identifying conservative values as white male values.

Right, because they are. (Thanks for the compliment!)

5. Convicted con man whines about how “difficult” the next four years will be.

Here are a few choice lines from Conrad Black’s whiny missive for the National Review:

“In the last 40 years, as many as 20 million unskilled peasants have illegally entered the U.S.”

“This president could not run on his record and just smeared his opponent as a rich asset-stripper, and frightened women voters with fatuous red herrings about ‘reproductive rights.’”

“For the first time, a coalition of pigmentational minorities and government employees and other benefit recipients outvoted the bulk of the traditional white majority. If this is the template for America’s electoral future, strains unimaginable since the Civil War will result.”

Those are some strong moral judgments coming from a man convicted of defrauding shareholders of $6.1 million.
Apparently certain people believe demography is destiny. 'Though of course they'll scream about it not being so in other contexts.

Factoid

A study of the new California congressional delegation by Harold Meyerson of a liberal magazine, the American Prospect, showed that the 38 Democrats elected this year included 18 women, nine Latinos, five Asian-Americans, three African-Americans, four Jews and at least one gay American. The 15-member Republican delegation is all white men.

Every Cop Is A Criminal

Why the hell else would we have a "Police Terror" label?
A veteran Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy was arrested Wednesday for allegedly shooting and killing a man in Sylmar while off-duty in June, authorities said.

The deputy, Francisco Gamez, 41, has been with the department for 17 years and was last working as a station detective in West Hollywood.
You think we're kidding about pig criminality? The police are as much of a gang as any Blood or Crip clique.
In August, a person who identified himself as the victim's brother commented on the website of the Los Angeles Times, saying he suspected a deputy was responsible.

"We think he is a L.A. COUNTY SHERIFF," the comment stated. "The reason we think he is a Sheriff is that he shouted to my Brother "L.A. COUNTY SHERIFF WHERE YOU FROM" as if the sheriff was in a gang."
Set a gangster to catch a gangster? Jesus fuck these people to hell.

Drink Up, Drink Up & Die!

Here, why don't you fucking losers slug down about a case of this shit in a very short period?
Since 2009, 5-Hour Energy has been mentioned in some 90 filings with the F.D.A., including more than 30 that involved serious or life-threatening injuries like heart attacks, convulsions and, in one case, a spontaneous abortion, a summary of F.D.A. records reviewed by The New York Times showed.

[...]

Another federal agency, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, reported late last year that more than 13,000 emergency room visits in 2009 were associated with energy drinks alone.
Keep on swallowing that crap, you fucking cretins.

Bimbo Eruption Explained

Nut-picking, sure. And?
Ragspierre says:
…a party that was well out of touch with the demographic, generational, and ideological changes quietly transforming the electorate.
Well, PARTLY true.  Across all ages, Romney won the with Anglos.  He won with men, if the early numbers I saw were right.
What he did not win were “victim classes” the Collective has cut out of the American people, including a new one: “Julia”.
I take exception with your title, McQ.  It breaks rationally with the content.
Being a minority party…and the conservative coalition is NOT…is not the same as going out of existence, is it?  The nation has moved away from conservative ideology before, and been brought back.  I’m not convinced that it has moved away in our time, and the election results don’t support a vast shift outside of California and New York.  Recent history, in fact, shows the opposite.
Both you and Cook make a raft of assumptions about “being out of touch” that I still think the information does not support.
Bill Whittle pointed out something in a recent FireWall that I’d never heard before, and certainly bears investigating; among conservatives who are NOT REGISTERED to vote, the primary reason they give is avoiding jury duty.  That is astounding.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCz3H5paADQ&feature=youtu.be&hd=1
Winning elections is important.  But what you will DO with the power of an office is a LOT more important, and I am by no means convinced we need a radical retooling of what we believe.  Especially on BAD information…while harboring a rout mentality.
What part of limited government and individual liberty do you propose to drop for popularity?
This must be denial: Whites & men, esp. white men, because victims & women. "NOT a minority, a member of a grand coalition!!" (Offer not available in Calif. or N.Y.)

Is this humor?
looker says:
“and I am by no means convinced we need a radical retooling of what we believe.”

Herein lies the problem – if we were standing next to Tonto at this point in the joke he’d be saying “what do you mean ‘we’ paleface”.

We can comfort ourselves thinking those who believe roughly what we believe just couldn’t be motivated to vote, or we can acknowledge that perhaps the Erbs and their ilk have taken a better control than we give them credit for.  I’m your cockeyed optimist and I believe it CAN come back our way, but the voting public apparently decided for the moment to buy the quack medicine that the Democrats believe will make us all better.
New code: "Erbs." Hmmm ... nothing in the obligatory but short search to indicate what an "Erb" & its ilk would be in this context. Any guesses?

But all of the above was mere context. If anyone's gotten this far, here is the full dope on today's scandal:
Neo says:
… but God help Julia if with her ObamaCare contraceptive coverage she should decide to become a “military groupie” because the FBI will be coming around to determine the appropriateness of her life style.
Leave it to a bunch of Democrats to create a “target rich” sexual environment then bring in the “modesty police.”
The Democrats are really blowing it if this guy's giving credit where due & the Dems indeed invented sex. "The party that brought you sex" sounds like a winner.

Not The Party Of ...

Amateur exorcist & volcano-ignorer Piyush "Bobby" Jindal, who is also the governor of one of the (former) Confederate States, quoted in POLITICO, via Political Wire:
"We've got to make sure that we are not the party of big business, big banks, big Wall Street bailouts, big corporate loopholes, big anything. We cannot be, we must not be, the party that simply protects the rich so they get to keep their toys."
American voters, surveyed:
But the interesting numbers come in the answers to the question on Romney’s policies. Not surprisingly, 87 percent of Obama supporters said the Mittster’s policies favored the rich, while 0 percent said they favored the poor. Among Romney’s own supporters, only 10 percent said his policies favored the rich and, just like Obama supporters, 0 percent said that they favored the poor.

That’s a flat 0 percent across the board who said Romneynomics favored the poor.

Now, 0 percent is a number you don’t come across very often in polling. Usually, you can count on 2 or 3 percent of respondents to hear the question wrong and answer accordingly. But in this case, in a poll of nearly 20,000 people, there was absolute consensus: Nobody, but nobody, thought Romney cared enough about the poor to do anything for them. Nevermind Paul Ryan’s protestations, or those of various GOP polemicists, that supply-side trickle-down would benefit the poor more than any Democratic policies would. Ryan not only failed to convince Obama’s supporters of this, he didn’t convince any of his own and Romney’s supporters, either.
Good luck fucking that chicken, y'all.

A Personal Message For Ann Romney

Comments are disabled for this video.
From, via Weird Dave in the comments down there.

One Lies, The Others Swear To It

How is this spin suddenly everywhere, Journo-List-style? It's as if there really were a vast right-wing noise machine blasting faxes to gated communities nationwide.

The president didn’t win with a ‘magnificent’ get-out-the-vote operation. It was his relentless negative ads that discouraged and disillusioned the Republican and independent voters Romney needed, says Michael Medved.

For Medved to bitch about negative attack campaigning (i.e., showing Romney for what he is) when the Prez has been vilified & demonized w/ the fantasies & delusions of a paranoid right-wing is just another peak reached in his attempt to climb all the mountains of hypocrisy.

Upon reaching this summit, M.M. turns on his projector & lets Karl Rove shine his light through:
He and his supporters succeeded in discouraging and disillusioning the Republican and independent voters whom Romney needed for victory. In post-election comments, GOP strategist Karl Rove argued that the Obama campaign succeeded by deliberately “suppressing the vote,” a response to Democratic accusations of Republican “voter suppression” schemes. Although most opinion leaders dismissed Rove’s observation as the sour grapes whining of a notably sore loser, it’s impossible to argue with his numbers: Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan drew 1.3 million fewer votes than the allegedly hapless ticket of John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Given the undeniable fact that some significant number of voters who backed Obama last time switched their support to Romney in 2012, helping to produce the president’s 7.6 million decline in support, several million Americans who cast ballots for McCain-Palin four years ago must have chosen to stay home for this election.
To which we can only bold that one admission of straight-up protection/reaction & add: So? (Under our breath we muttered, "Fuck both of you gasbags.")

The most creative (& revealing) take on the GOP blast fax that generated all this (Seriously. Where did it come from?) has to be Grover Norquist & his "poopy-head" entry.Elections don't matter any more. All the lower marginal rates talk is pure crap too. All of it:Hey America! Remember the good old days when if a man lied to another man's face he'd be taken to the street & horsewhipped? The days when a flim-flamming snake-oil salesman would be run out of town on a rail, decorated in tar & feathers? Where has that America gone, America?

Even more amusing is the decision to rationalize or explain or whatever Romney's loss by crying that, in a campaign, campaigning is unfair. The Obama campaign had the gall to keep their mailing lists up to date, for example, as we noted yesterday. And more than once the scurrilous accusation Obama made ("Romney caused cancer!") is followed by the whiner saying the Romney campaign didn't answer the scurrility. Conclusion: The Republican campaign sucked, & Obama approved this negative message. We can only wonder why the Romney campaign never responded. Could it be that Romney did cause cancer?

Just one more example of research: A paragraph or four from the snooty version, as typed by whoever drew the short straw-man at Ye Olde American Spectator.
Why was a record of economic blight and general discontent insufficient to unseat Obama?

Obama ran a highly negative campaign, correctly deducing that he could maintain his coalition of constituencies even as he alienated nearly half the country with his resort to class warfare. In this he was aided by Romney's tactical mistakes and an Obama-compliant media.

Romney, depicted relentlessly by the Obama campaign as an out-of-touch, stone-hearted, job-exporting Bourbon and robber baron (who has actually given vast sums to charitable causes, including the fortune he inherited), made the tactical error of doing little to counter the fusillade of character assassination during the vital May-July period. He dealt with confidence-eroding allegations about his time at Bain Capital in a dilatory fashion. Achieving a stellar first presidential debate performance, he failed to press his advantage in the two subsequent debates.

Obama also calculated extremely well how to leverage the American demographic shift of recent years. He was able to keep the constituencies he attracted in 2008 with promises and hand-outs. Offensive utterances on rape by Republicans Senate candidates Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin eroded the female vote for Romney. And, perhaps most importantly, Romney faltered not only tactically but strategically when it came to the fast growing Latino vote.
Drag out the multi-syllabics if you like, but you can't convince us that somehow both horses in the race lost.

Golden Idols Tarnished

First brave baby-killer Petraeus, now the voice of Elmo. More proof
S-E-X is nasty & shameful. Stop it, as Ann Romney would say.

Maybe. Maybe Not ...

Election Night we surfed by John Fund on his voter fraud hobby-horse offering a whopping three examples: Poll workers (or watchers, he's not sure either) something, "concerns" of Federal vans being used for something, & something a judge(s) something, around (42:45).No actually fraudulent votes noted but don't give up yet fraud fans, not all the information is in. Other shocking Obama-trocities (40:45): The campaign kept mailing lists up to date!

Not that we saw it all. (You couldn't make us watch Fred Barnes w/ a gun to our head.) but it's over for these people. Seeing their crests fall at each update was icing on the cake of Fund admitting that there was no fraud. Yet.

And how long ago should Pat Robertson have been eased out? Does he require the services of a personal drool wrangler yet? Catch his segue at the end of the Fund segment. Marriage fan Maggie Gallagher follows that, trying to be cheerful about various state referenda, while admitting they're all in blue states. And she mentions the Iowa justice she wants out. Who is staying. ("Vote for revenge?" That's wrong, isn't it?)

Did you know? "Obama has been ruling by executive fiat; he just ignores Congress & just, y'know, he thinks he's the Anointed One" (53:45) as Pat lets some dude (Jimmy Falwell no longer being available) do the subtle scolding.

Look & listen well: When these weasels have passed from the earth we're not likely to see their like again.

A Hero Ain't Nothin' But A Sandwich

Required for This Date in History. It appears the Nazional Football League & possibly some other organizations have decided that all of November is Veterans Month, as the drones among us for whom professional football is a subset of the television-gazing existence can doubtless attest.

Here is the juicy, delicious marrow from deep w/in Greenwald's column. Yum:
There are several revealing lessons about this media swooning for Petraeus even as he exits from a scandal that would normally send them into tittering delight. First, military worship is the central religion of America's political and media culture. The military is by far the most respected and beloved institution among the US population - a dangerous fact in any democracy - and, even assuming they wanted to (which they don't), our brave denizens of establishment journalism are petrified of running afoul of that kind of popular sentiment.

Recall the intense controversy that erupted last Memorial Day when MSNBC's Chris Hayes gently pondered whether all soldiers should be considered "heroes". His own network, NBC, quickly assembled a panel on the Today Show to unanimously denounce him in the harshest and most personal terms ("I hope that he doesn't get more viewers as a result of this...this guy is like a – if you've seen him...he looks like a weenie" - "Could you be more inappropriate on Memorial Day?"), and Hayes then subjected himself to the predictable ritual of public apology (though he notably did not retract the substance of his remarks).

Hayes was forced (either overtly or by the rising pressure) to apologize because his comments were blasphemous: of America's true religion. At virtually every major sporting event, some uber-patriotic display of military might is featured as the crowd chants and swoons. It's perfectly reasonable not to hold members of the military responsible for the acts of aggression ordered by US politicians, but that hardly means that the other extreme - compelled reverence - is justifiable either.
Now back to football (where a commercial for the Marines greets us). Ooh-rah!

Doubling Down

Looooo-zers!
The day after the election, as Republican strategists diced the demographics of their loss — Hispanics and young people went with President Obama — the push was already on to make the GOP more inclusive and reflective of the country. The party needed to gather up more of the middle. In other words, it needed to tame the tea partyers who had moved the party to the right.

It was precisely this mentality that energized Emma Runion and her husband, John, to dig in even harder.

After gathering her signs Wednesday morning, Emma went to her computer. First she scanned it for spyware. “Hackers were very busy last night,” she said. Her second order of business was dropping Fox News as her home page, annoyed with the network for pitching in the towel so early and calling Obama the winner. Her new home page: the Blaze, the Glenn Beck-run news site.
It just gets better.
Emma pulled open her pantry. “We are not preppers,” she said, revealing a normal food closet instead of one preparing for anarchy. Canned pears. Canned pumpkin. Sugar. Peanut butter. Dog treats. There was no survival food, but they were planning on stocking up on guns and ammo.

“We’ll probably get a long gun and a short gun,” Emma said. “We’ve already got our concealed carry permits; we just need to be finger­printed.” That last step was the one that made her hesitant. “Once you are registered, they know who you are. Most firearms now are chipped” for tracking.
We're pretty damn sure that's complete bullshit.
They worried that Obama would now downsize the military — “MacDill is going to be a ghost town,” Emma said of the Air Force base in Tampa — to build his own military consisting of the National Guard, the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration.

“Right-wing nut” is what Emma playfully calls herself, a reference to Obama once categorizing extreme conservatives as fringe. John is less playful, especially when it comes to Obama.

“This guy, who is he?” asked John, at the kitchen counter. “He’s Buddhist, he’s Muslim, he’s Christian. When he addresses the Muslims, he speaks Muslim. When he addresses blacks, he goes into that black dialect. It’s creepy.”

He stirred his oatmeal. “To know this guy is going to have power for the next four years, that’s disturbing.”
Knowing this deluded son-of-a-bitch has two fucking guns is what's disturbing.

Time To Worm The Body Politic?

Peter Lemiska is a military veteran and former Senior Special Agent of the U.S. Secret Service. He holds a BA in psychology, and his commentaries can be found at renewamerica.com and various other political websites.
---
Obama’s election in 2008 might have been attributed to a naïve electorate that saw a new kind of politician, one filled with inspiration and hope. Or perhaps it was nothing more than mindless enthusiasm generated by America’s first African-American President.  With this election, we now know that the country has fundamentally changed.  It’s been remolded by Socialists and Communists who have wormed their way into our government, the news media, and our education system.  The younger generation has been particularly influenced.  One poll shows that 60 percent of the youth vote went to Obama.

This election suggests that the America of past generations is gone.  The Obama supporters have forgotten, or never learned those values that made the country great, like hard work, personal responsibility, and selflessness.  They have long ago forgotten the inspirational words of John F. Kennedy, Democratic leader from a bygone era, who called for some of that selflessness when he proclaimed, “Ask not what your country can do for you...”  That’s exactly what today’s voters are asking.  They are inspired by promises of free contraceptives, free health care, and free education.  In fact, they demand nothing less than cradle-to-tomb care guaranteed by the government, and funded by the taxpayer.

There was another world leader from Kennedy’s era who comes to mind.  He said something not particularly inspirational, but just as memorable.  In 1956, Nikita Khrushchev, First Secretary of the Communist Party of the USSR, predicted the demise of Capitalism and free enterprise, announcing to the West, “We will bury you.”  Fifty six years later, his prediction has come to pass.

"As the brainwashed American public & the evil Hollywood producers who wash their brains have no interest in any of my art (For I am an artist.) please give me & my fellow conservative artists money, preferably in the form of a tax-free grant or award (For infrastructure!) so we'll be able to reverse liberal influence in the culture & restore the free market by making movies about what swell dudes businessmen are."
     — Mr. Klavan, in the Hudson Institute's City Journal.

Losers Continue Gambling

Haters Continue Gloating

We may be over it by the wknd. Monday or so.
Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, in February.
Mr. Adelson, the biggest single donor in political history,
supported eight candidates through "super PACs."
All of them lost on Tuesday.
Patrick T. Fallon for The New York Times
At the private air terminal at Logan Airport in Boston early Wednesday, men in unwrinkled suits sank into plush leather chairs as they waited to board Gulfstream jets, trading consolations over Mitt Romney’s loss the day before.

“All I can say is the American people have spoken,” said Kenneth Langone, the founder of Home Depot and one of Mr. Romney’s top fund-raisers, briskly plucking off his hat and settling into a couch.

The biggest single donor in political history, the casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, mingled with other Romney backers at a postelection breakfast, fresh off a large gamble gone bad. Of the eight candidates he supported with tens of millions of dollars in contributions to “super PACs,” none were victorious on Tuesday.

Gen. Betray Us

Remember? And extra funny.

It would appear they were correct. Certainly the General betrayed Mrs. General Petraeus. Fucking assholes, it's time to finish purging our nation of the upper classes & their toadies in public service & establish a peoples' democracy.

Meanwhile sad sack suck-up Mark Halperin (Speaking of motherfucking toadies. Cheese Louise.) is licking Petraeus up down & sideways on MSNBC. What a great intellectual, so respected, yada. Fuck you, jerk, it's over for you & everyone like you.

Added schadenfreude first brought to the nation's short attention span yesterday.

Reagan Exhumed, Propped Up

It's been threatened for yrs., & now they've finally done it:What a shame for them there hasn't been a Republican President since Reagan & they don't have a more recent hero.

Actual Data

Yesterday at Big Breitbart (Who remains dead, you know. Bet the election results would've attacked his heart anyway.) Big John Nolte did some factoiding (He likes to call it "reporting.") on his "Twitternets." The fact is, none of the libs he follows Twitter-reported any upticks in turnout in "their" Ohio counties so suck. On. This.

On CNN, the correspondent with the Obama campaign reported that Team Obama is telling her that they see nothing in the Ohio turnout that looks any different from what they expected -- in other words, the polls were correct.
Take that for what it's worth.
Below is some information from a GOP source; actual data. It doesn't tell us everything but it does tell us something.
I am watching the Twitternets where I follow even more left-wing media types than my fellow Righties. If there's actual data showing Obama counties experience some kind of turnout surge, I haven't seen it, but I will report it if I do.
Quick update – turnout is up in GOP Geauga County, Ohio where McCain won with 57% of the vote and down in Athens County, the home of Ohio University and where Obama won with 67% in 2008. Early vote in Geauga? 125% of 2008. Athens? Down 10% from 2008.
SHOT: GOP county turnout up
ADDED from a GOP source:
Butler County (outside Cincinnati) where McCain won with 61% and Bush with 66%. Early voting was also good for Romney at 121% of 2008.
· Early voting was 121% of 2008
· McCain got 61 percent, Bush 66%
That's the data to wrap some context around this news report:
In Butler County, voters were out at polling spots before the doors opened, said Jocelyn Bucaro, deputy director of the Butler County Board of Elections.
Bucaro said there was a 30-minute line at the board of elections office, located at 1802 Princeton Road.
“We had lines at most polling locations at 6:30 a.m.,” she said. “Lines have quieted down and there’s a steady stream.”
Bucaro said she anticipates a total of 175,000 voters in Butler County casting a ballot this presidential election through absentee and in-person voting. She said a total of 46,387 absentee ballots have been cast in the county.

Surely one of our readers will be able to help us & look into what happened in those two counties he was on about.

Other bright stuff from Breitbart that we bookmarked:
This you could look at. It's stenography on behalf of the Romney campaign. We heard one or another suit-sporting idiot on MSNBC's Morning HoJoe, possibly a POLITICO drone, quoting the Romney release but not working the Catholic angle as much. At least not before we tuned out.

General idiocy & incitement:
Related?
As early voting continued in Houston on Friday, an incident occurred that should serve as a shocking reminder that there are those who care nothing about voting rules and integrity. Members of the NAACP took over a polling location and broke multiple election laws. Despite repeated requested by a poll watcher, to halt their activities, the NAACP members continued with their pro-Obama rhetoric and moving certain people from the back of the line to the front. This is what Americans need to watch for in the closing days.
Man. That was close. Really dodged a bullet there.

Get This, Fuck That!

We don't owe you fuckers anything & all we've got to say is:
"FUCK YOU!!"

Now all you people in majority cracker states & districts get to work running the collections of assholes you elected in 2010 the fuck out of town on a rail. Tar & feathers optional.

5 November 2012:
Even more embarrassing.
Legible, but you still can't read it:
At first glance, political opinion polls seems like the nadir of modern liberal democracy. In their special alchemy they congeal a sensitivity to the will of the people and an emphasis on mathematical exactitude. The poll is the culmination of the peculiar modern marriage of science and popular sovereignty, the technocratic and the democratic. To borrow from Hamilton, and by borrow I mean disfigure, the poll is the ultimate success of our “grand experiment in self-governance.”

Of course, on another interpretation, they are completely useless.
Points for congeal.

Anti-Climax

Oh man. Never again. Now bugger off, Mitt Romney, & take all your little friends w/ you! And that (white) horse on which you rode in.

The most significant thing (actually the only thing) that's crossed our mind as a result of this interminable mess is that this is the third consecutive POTUS who's been elected to a second term.

Second time it's happened, Jefferson, Madison & Monroe having done it a couple centuries ago. How do the last three winners stack up against those presidential powerhouses? Ha ha. Why do you hate America?
