    We’ll honor Jimmy Carter with flags at half-staff.

  • PB-in-AL

    Romney – The pot-kettle comment is exactly what hit my mind first.

    Repubs/Gas $ – So the Repubs’ “pouncing on high gas prices” is their own fault?! Obama has no culpability in this rise?! REALLY?! Keystone XL, Coal plant closings, Gulf drilling rig permits denied, EPA over-reaching every freakin’ where… No Obama doesn’t have anything to do with that. And I’ve got a NYC bridge for sale, too.

    Texting fall – [chuckle] New York lawmakers are trying to outlaw texting and walking? Some academic is now going to “study” the effects of texting and walking? I want a federal grant to research the effects of walking and chewing gum. Or maybe one to research the effects of bitch-slapping rude cell phone talkers in restaurants. … hmm, that’d be a tough decision between the two of those.

    Dem Cronyism – this is news to someone?

    Springsteen – Shut up and play yer guitar.

    Motel owner, property seizure – I’ve wondered about this whole concept. It seemed too possible for corruption. This particular situation is certainly not right. It’s just a different method of “eminent domain” except the only cost to the gov’t is the prosecution charges, much cheaper than “fair market value”. I hope this guy can fight this all the way to the end. In my opinion, he should press them for court costs, defamation of business reputation, and whatever else he can get… ‘course that’d come out of our pockets, but at least this would be justifiable.

    Operation Cupcake – humor for the wife and my morning coffee time. Thanks Bob.

    Christians and law – Good quotes in the article: “The EHRC is so obsessed with equality that it has lost sight of freedom. It would prefer people not to do good, rather than to do good on their own terms.”; “the issue for Catholic adoption agencies was one of “respect for conscience”, he said. “They are two different issues.” ” The reference to a “totalitarian view” of public service is spot on.

    NYT/Heartland flap – The fact that Heartland says, and other parties have confirmed that the “smoking gun” document is fake, doesn’t even register on NYT or the “reporters”. It doesn’t fit with the message they’re pushing. Double standard is probably an understatement in this case.

    Pelosi/”undue burden” – Sorry Nan, they are already and “undue burden” on we, the tax payers, who have to make their payroll and benefits. My company stopped putting any matching funds in our 401k funds about 5 years ago, is that an “undue burden” on me? I understood that belts had to be tightened, why can’t the federal employees?!

    Whitney Houston called ‘crack ho’ on L.A. radio; shock jocks John and Ken apologize, suspended by station

    I’ve got nothing against Whitney Houston. Great talent, and no mistake. But would any shock jock get suspended for making disparaging and vulgar remarks about — oh, I don’t know — Jesus, f’rinstance? Or the Baal Shem Tov, or any other prominent Jewish icon? They wouldn’t, of course, make any such remarks about Mohammed; they value their lives too much for that.

    • PB-in-AL

      … or Sarah Palin, or Newt, or GWB, or… or… or… [nope].

      In death she regained her “media darling” status. Just the afternoon of her passing I saw the tabloids touting headlines that weren’t too far from what these guys said. Had these guys said the exact same thing the previous morning it would never have blipped on anyone’s radar. The only difference is the ensuing event. The facts didn’t change. Of course, they don’t need no steenkin’ facts.

    Romney sees the speck in Washington Republicans’ eyes and misses the log in his own eye.

    Greece reaps its bounty of socialist/Marxist delusions which it sowed.  Time to start printing drachmas.

    The Obama Snake Oil’s new sales campaign will target you with whatever ailment you have.

    The new Admiral is a lawyer.  Shooting down our plane is just a resume enhancement for appointment by Obama who sees a lawyer in the mold of Eric Holder.   It was the missile that shoot down the plane, not the lawyer to-be.

    Blacks like Eric Holder will soon need ‘get-out-of-jail’ cards and then training against recidivism and drug use.

    Notice to the spawn of “Chicken Little”:  The sky didn’t fall and the earth is cooling.  Remove carbon dioxide and all life on earth ceases (plants are life, you dodos).

    Obama’s lackey, Energy Secretary Chu, told the truth just once; they both want gas prices to rise so you’ll buy a Volt.

    NJ can go ahead and honor Whitney, if they do it for sleazebag politicians they can do it for those who made a better contribution to society.  I don’t have a problem with it.

    Romney: Republicans in Washington Need to Stop Acting Like Democrats
    Stupid comment from the man who gave Massachusetts gay marriage and RomneyCare

    Pot, meet kettle.  Kettle, pot.

    Aren’t you cold? Alaska native Sarah Palin shows she’s not afraid of the New York chill in towering open-toe heels and bare legs
    It’s not the cold; it’s the wind

    It’s neither the cold, nor the wind, but the paparazzi she needs to watch out for and avoid if necessary.

    Drive-thru owner shoots robber
    Good for him!

    Lousy shot, though.  Still and all, one less goblin on the street that attempted to reach ambient temperature, which is a good thing!

    MI6 attacks al-Qaeda in ‘Operation Cupcake’

    Gotta love that Brit humour!  (Yes, I spelled it humour…)

    It Is Time for Newt to Go!
    With all due respect, this should be left to the voters, not the pundit class

    Truly the height of arrogance, these “pundits” would like to have it their way.  Well, we ain’t Burger King, you sleazebags.
