I Have 1 Word For Jindal Regarding Volcano Monitoring

2009-02-26T09:25:37.587-05:00


Bobby Jindal (R- Idiculous) thought he was being Oh, So Clever when he tried to make fun of President O's pledge to spend $140 million on volcano monitoring.

Here's that 1 word, Jindal: Pompeii


(image)

And Jindal is supposed to be a Rhodes Scholar?

The people who monitor volcanoes also monitor hurricanes, Bobby. They're called scientists, you asshat.

Volcanoes, of course, aren't the only potential natural disaster that scientists monitor to give people warnings of imminent danger. Hurricanes, tornado-producing storms, earthquakes, tsunamis and flooding events are also watched and forecast.

The idiot from Louisiana strikes again.

Truly heaviest of sighs.

The Washington Post Calls Jindal "Downright Strange"

2009-02-25T16:36:53.501-05:00


(image)

From The WaPo:

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal didn't stand a chance. The rising Republican star delivered his party's response to President Obama's hour-long address and simply didn't rise to the occasion. Where Obama in tone and message was relentlessly positive, Jindal's relentless utterance of "Americans can do anything" masked a Debbie Downer negativism that permeated his speech. And coming after Obama's boffo performance, Jindal's Don Knotts-like "golly gee willikers" story-telling and cadence was, how does one put this delicately, downright strange.


You know, some people are like slinkies: they're good for nothin'!

But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

Truly heavy sigh.

The exterior doors at the White House are the ones with Marine guards standing in front of them. Do you see a Marine guard, Mr. President?

No, that's an ornamental tree in a planter box, sir.

No, sir. Marine guards don't take breaks and leave the doors unattended.

By the way...

Today's Sermon: Do The Horses Want To Be Purified By Fire, Too?

2009-01-25T09:05:52.953-05:00


(image) Ah, Spain! Where the truly religious demonstrate their glory to God annually by riding horses through flames... in a Saint Anthony purification ceremony.

St. Anthony, the finder of lost objects, became a Franciscan because he wanted to shed his blood for Christ and become a martyr. What a guy! What better way to make sure you'd be remembered throughout history?

And it worked. Anthony died at age 36 in 1231 and was canonized less than a year later...

And we're still taking about him today.

Oh, yeah. When "the heretics" wouldn't listen to Fr. "Death-Wish" Antony, he preached to the fishes.

No kidding.

Thus endeth today's sermon.

Go forth today and beware the martyr wannabes and their followers... because they want to die and they don't care if they take you with them.

And make them stop abusing innocent animals during their weird-assed religious rituals, too.

I mean it, damn it!

Good Riddance To Howard Dean (aka Rubbish)

Hillary Rodham Clinton has been confirmed as Secretary Of State (94-2), and Howard Dean has been replaced by Tim Kaine as DNC Chairman.

DNC formally elects Kaine chairman

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democratic National Committee has elected Tim Kaine as the party's new chairman.

The vote was a formality and the outcome was expected.

President Barack Obama chose the Virginia governor for the post earlier this month. Kaine is a longtime ally who endorsed Obama for president in early 2007.

Kaine will serve as chairman on a part-time basis until his governor's term is up. He was elected to a four-year term in 2005.

The DNC post also is a four-year term.

(image) So long, Howard! Your work is now done, isn't it? Enjoy your historical role as the man who rigged the Democratic Party's 2008 presidential primary election.

And don't let the screen door hit you in the ass on your way out.

In Case Of An Actual Emergency...

2009-01-20T11:36:59.300-05:00


Good thing we aren't experiencing an actual emergency here on Capitol Hill today. We are experiencing:

No Sprint cell-to-cell service.

Spotty internet connections.

Red Line Metro shutdowns.

Ambulances stranded in traffic.

1.5 million people on the mall and a waaay bigger crowd along the inaugural parade route.

The best thing happening at the Capitol: Holy Joe Lieberman is getting booed. Big time. And Big Time Dick Cheney looks like hammered shit. On toast. Looks like he's had a stroke. That lame "he strained his back moving boxes" story is laughable. The last two things Cheney picked up were A.) a highball glass; and B.) a shotgun.

Wait. I lie. The funniest thing is George H.W. Bush walking like Danny DeVito in that Batman movie where he played the Penguin. No explanation yet as to why.

Waddle, waddle, H.W.!

They're introducing W. and Dick. Gotta go.

If you haven't seen Dick, you won't recognize the sentiment expressed in today's post title. Watch All The President's Men immediately before you watch Dick. You'll thank me for the suggestion.

Anyway, Sugar & I had the same idea for today's farewell to W.:

By the way, people have been walking down my street all night long... on their way to the Capitol for the Obama Show at noon today.

Yawn. I'm sleepy.

George W. Bush: "I Am Not A Crook"

2009-01-16T16:21:20.964-05:00


(image)
No, I didn't watch the last Bush gasp of a thankfully dying presidency last night.

Neither did Ezra Klein, but he did have this to say:

A FAILURE.

I didn't watch the President's final speech. In fact, I didn't even think to watch it. I don't care to hear the tinny defenses. I don't care to rebut the desperate rationalizations. I don't care what a highly trained team of speechwriters can do with the data furnished by a highly trained team of political hacks who are working with the themes developed by a highly trained team of pollsters. At this point, the facts of the case are clear. Because George W. Bush was president, innocent people died in large numbers. Because George W. Bush was president, the earth warmed and disaster edged nearer. Because George W. Bush was president, more children live in poverty. Because George W. Bush was president, the rich wield more power. Because George W. Bush was president, more people hate America. Because George W. Bush was president, more Americans view the presidency cynically. Because George W. Bush was president, this country is worse off, and this world is worse off. He betrayed us. I have no interest in engaging the debate that asks whether he was a cynical monster or a hapless fool. It is enough to say he was a failure, and leave it at that. He can spend the rest of his life giving speeches to justify his actions. But he will never be able to drown out the roar of his record.

Sums up my disgust quite succinctly.

Thanks, Ezra.

The Last Bushism? Don't Hold Your Breath

2009-01-15T08:53:13.795-05:00

From The Daily View:

From President George Bush's press conference Monday:
"I'm telling you there's an enemy that would like to attack America, Americans, again. There just is. That's the reality of the world. And I wish him all the very best."

Do what?

That's what he said, View.

However, don't assume that George W. will refrain from being an evil idiot after he leaves DC next week, OK? He's like a broken record.

Psst! If you're too young to understand the broken record analogy, click here.

Bush To-Do List: 1. Ruin The Country; 2. Buy New China

2009-01-09T04:45:03.813-05:00


(image) You have got to be kidding me. My Bush Countdown Clock is almost down to single digits, and now this?

The first lady was careful not to mention the price tag when she introduced the new presidential plates: one, a table set of formal china in white, green and gold; the other for the residence painted with magnolias in honor of the old trees outside the White House windows.

Laura Bush said she and her husband plan to fly straight to the Bush ranch Jan. 20 and will move to their new residence in Dallas "once the paint dries."

White House press secretary Dana Perino made little of the first lady's timing to introduce the new china, saying there's "no time but the present."

The White House worried that general wear and tear had taken a toll on its fragile China collections and Perino says the Bushes took some time to decide on a new design.

General wear and tear?

What have there been... 5 or 6 state dinners during the last 8 years?

And riddle me this: Who will want to eat food plated on top of a big old magnolia blossom?

Laura Bush: her taste is all in her mouth.

But you already knew that, didn't you?
