Huffington Post Publishes "$100,000 for Glenn Beck Sex Tape" Then Pulls Article

by the Left Coast Rebel

Well ain't that nice - former Air America editor in chief (read failure) Beau Friedlander authored a piece earlier today, "$100,000 for Glenn Beck's Sex Tape"

It beautifully personifies that which the modern liberal persona and dogma has become (vile, unhinged, mean spirited, foul mouthed and degenerate) :

beck sex tape
beck sex tape 2

I have screen-shot the entire article above because the actual piece has been scrubbed by HuffPo. Nevertheless the wandering net-venturer can still view the cached copy (above) so do so while you still can. I found the key phrase (away from the nonsense and vulgarity) to be this 'offer':

I am not offering the cash myself, but I will broker the deal and/or raise the money for what you bring to the table.

I see, so essentially PuffHo writer Beau Friedlander is not going to pay the $100,000 himself but will 'broker' which in mindspeak is pretty close to the leftist-progressive-collectivist cause of 'from each according to his ability..'

On the other hand, I'm not sure that an Air America head honcho would be a very good choice of candidate to send your hard earned dollars to, bankruptcy and all.

Too bad it went down. When one clicks the "$100,000 for Glenn Beck Sex Tape" (non cached) link, one is greeted with:

Editor's Note: This piece was published directly to the Huffington Post by its author. It didn't meet our editorial standards and has been removed from the site.

As much as I hate the Puffington Host I have to give credit where credit is due (and am somewhat shocked that they actually do have standards and took the article down).

Regardless, they get what they deserve by hiring dimwitted, bombthrowing, intellectually vacuous, nincompoopish, Bolshevik, libtarded jerks like Beau Friedlander.

Updated: Air America Editor Beau Friedlander apologizes and quotes a 'friend' who says something that sounds Leninist:

First, I owe Glenn Beck an apology. I crossed the line. On the off chance something comes in over the transom...scratch that; I'll delete the email account. Problem solved.

A friend commented:

The people on the left who parrot and jerk their knees are just as much an obstacle to an outcome that benefits the maximum number of people as the "sheepies" are.
Even in apology this guy sounds like a communist (or at least his friend, whom he quotes, does). Lord, how have you let these people thrive in our beautiful nation?

Be careful of what you wish for..

One can almost hear the sack load's chop-licking as well as the knife-sharpening of his sycophantic  knee-pad media buddies over the upcoming fifth anniversary of Katrina. And I am sure that there will be a plethora of postings all over the MSM about how that terrible event was exacerbated but the hated Bush administration's efforts at rescue and restoration.

Bt they might want to take a little care before they seize on yet another Bash Bush jamboree as it just might result in some unfavorable blow-back in the form of Katrina-versus-Gulf-oil-spill comparisons.

"On his first non-vacation trip since his last vacation trip, President Obama flies down to the gulf region again today.

White House aides say the Democrat, sensitive to early spill criticism that his administration was slow to react to the country's worst-ever environmental disaster, will recommit the nation to help the battered region that's taken a lot of help in recent years.Republican president George W Bush consoles victims of Hurricane Katrina in 2005

But wait. This trip is not about the oil spill that's become for Obama what Hurricane Katrina became at the time for George W. Bush, a federalized mess that many took as a sign of broader ineffectivness.

Now, however, there's an intriguing new poll out of several hundred Louisianans.

And they seem to have reached a somewhat unexpected verdict on the job performance of the successive presidents:

Public Policy Polling finds that today the most-impacted residents feel that the Republican President No. 43 displayed more leadership in his crisis than the Democratic President No. 44 has in his.

Despite all the controversy and subsequent political charges and recriminations, a clear majority (54%) now say they feel Bush handled the deadly hurricane's aftermath better than Obama did the oil spill (33%). More than 1,600 people died in one of the worst storms and subsequent flooding in U.S. history.

Bush's 21-point leadership approval spread has grown by six points during the last two months of the Obama administration.

As usual, Obama will give a speech during his New Orleans visit today. And another one Tuesday evening on Iraq."

Yessir, folks, it would seem that Bush is the best thing that ever happened to Obama.If it were not for blaming him for one thing or another, The Pantload would just be marking time in office by playing golf, taking vacations, flying to meet foreign dignitaries to apologize for America, and playing some more golf while on vacation.

On another note, I cancelled the hated Los Angeles Times many, many years ago (hell, I canceled the Orange County Register three years ago) and now take NO newspaper for the simple reason that I do not need to have Leftist Liberal and Big "L" Libertarian garbage shoveled at me for essentially the price of a decent bottle of single malt whiskey per month. No sir, I got better use for my time and loot.

But I heartily recommend The L. A. Times' "Top of the Ticket" for your perusal.It is a blog put together by Andrew Malcom (former Laura Bush press secretary) and comes up with some pretty good stuff. If only Andrew had more control over the Times' editorial policies, I might even give up the bottle of Glennfiddich and subscribe once again.

In fact, I am beginning to wonder what will happen to other rags should they ever shed the liberal mantra they continually bleat. Why, they might even make some money.

Obama Rides a Bicycle in Massachusetts, Projects Weakness

by the Left Coast Rebel

Can you say Pee Wee Herman?

Obama, a bicycle, helmet, Massachusetts --- just don't mix (at least in a non-metreosexual sense):

ObamaFailBlog connects the dots:

First, he was too busy buying shrimp to comment on the war in Iraq.

Now, President Bow n' Tax is riding around Massachusetts on a bicycle, projecting weakness. In case you think donning a helmet and riding a bicycle instantly makes one look like a granola-swilling, beta-male, think again. You CAN ride a bike (with a helmet) and look like the leader of the free world:

Get some!!

Iranian Air Defense Site: 'Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace. Identify yourself.'
USMC FA-18: 'This is a United States aircraft. I am in Iraqi airspace.'
Iranian Air Defense Site: 'You are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace we will launch interceptor aircraft!'
USMC FA-18: 'This is a United States Marine Corps FA-18 fighter. Send 'em up, I'll wait!'
Iranian Air Defense Site: *silence*

..thanks to Captain Bill Preston, USAFA

Prayers answered?

My lips to God's ears? Speak of the devil? Wishful thinking?

I hate writing this type of stuff because I hated them writing this type of stuff about Bush. And I just finished that post down below about how I hoped she'd be compelled to give up that hammer and stuff. But, Now it seems that some Democrats want her to give up the ghost, assume room temperature, start her dirt nap, join the heavenly choir, become an ex-parrot next year.

Democratic Rep. Bobby Bright (Ala.) on Wednesday ducked a question on whether or not he would vote for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) by joking that she "might even get sick and die."

Bright, a centrist Blue Dog who voted against the healthcare reform law, made the comments in response to a question about whether he'd support Pelosi to retain the Speaker's gavel.

Speaking at a local Chamber of Commerce event, Bright "joked that Pelosi might lose her own election, decide not to run for the speaker’s job or otherwise not be available," the Montgomery Advertiser wrote.

He then suggested "jokingly" that Pelosi could fall ill and die in the coming months, thus preventing him from having to vote for her as Speaker. His remarks reportedly drew laughter from the audience.

..I dunno. She's gonna go someday but personally I'd like her to stick around for a while in congress, powerless, trading small time favors with acne-riddled back-benchers and being forced to ride coach class between DC and San Francisco.

As for the Dems like Bobby "Not Too" Bright? I guess it's like Jimmy Durante used to famously say, "Everybody's gotta get into the act."


Memories are made of this..

Late to the dance on this one, but in a post that the Left Coast Rebel did on this site, he ran that repugnant photograph of all those clowns in the house parading out in public after they rammed through one aspect of the oppressive ObamaCare -- just to get in our faces. What is especially nauseating is the image of that 70-year-old bitch, strutting in the streets of DC with her big gavel.

She's so goddamned proud of that thing, ain't she?

I just hope we can keep this and the other images of these idiots in our minds when we go to the poles this November..

..and I just hope there's a picture of her handing that hammer over to Boehner or some other Republican because her Dem turd majority has been flushed.

RX for November Democrats: Tylenol


by the Left Coast Rebel

A reader just sent me a tip on a miracle compound for Democrats, post November 11.

He read it and thought that it was a simply perfect solution for Democrat-pain - it's a study on Tylenol recently performed by the University of Florida:

Over-the-counter painkiller may help ease emotional slights, UF study finds

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Maybe that disgruntled JetBlue flight attendant should have popped a couple of Tylenols.
A University of Florida researcher says acetaminophen, an ingredient in the popular over-the-counter pain reliever, may relieve social pain from hurt feelings. The findings suggest for the first time that emotional and physical pain are interrelated, said Gregory Webster, a UF psychologist who co-authored the study with a team of researchers.

“We think that social pain piggybacks onto physical pain and the two systems sort of bleed into each other, so that just as you feel emotional distress from physical pain, the social pain of having a romance breakup or getting a horrible grade can translate into feeling sick to your stomach or getting a bad headache,” he said.

I love the idea and it sounds like it might just do the trick for Democrats. Think about it - the bases are covered. Tylenol may actually relieve social pain from hurt feelings and the corresponding, piggy-backing physical pain...

This is simply an incurable condition with statist-socialist Democrats, though:

Acetaminophen may also show promise in curtailing antisocial behavior, Webster said.

PS - Please keep the Tylenol secret just that. Or better yet, if you prescribe Tylenol for post-traumatic Democrat stress, make sure you advise copious alcohol consumption as well.

Then that way, they won't know the magic bullet.
You can't fix stupid but you can vote it out of office and make the pain go away.

LEST WE FORGET: Make it go viral..

Bunni, one of the esteemed members of LCRez, posted this and appealed to others to do the same. Here goes but -- WARNING -- get your blood pressure medicine and get your mind in a calm place before doing watching.

I don't know about you, but I am waxing much more impatient over MOOZ-lem insistence that we are insensitive to their religion and their traditions. On tonight's news comes the story about employee at Disneyland out here in Anaheim who is unhappy because she was dismissed for wearing an unauhorized head scarf while playing her part. (Employees at Disneyland are called "cast members".) Of course, she retained a MOOZ-lem lawyer, etc. I'm thinking settlement and payoff to make her go away; not a bad days work for donning a kerchief.

But there are other instances of this almost daily. Mrs War Planner -- a green-card-carrying-permanent-resident-about-to-become-a-citizen from the Land of the Rising Sun -- keeps mumbling the old, "when in Rome" aphorism. Almost 30 years here in the West and Madame W. P. has had no problem with the Roman thingy.

She loves hamburgers ("In-n-Out" double-double, especially) and whatever beer's on special at Rite Aid.

..but, alas, I am tiptoeing up to the demarcation line of intolerance, I guess. But, like Bunni, I get tired of being treated like a trogladyte in my own country.

New LCR Daily Caller Piece: Of smurf and swine: James Cameron....


by the Left Coast Rebel

This morning I wrapped up a Daily Caller piece that I had been working on since last night. It parallels my previous Daily Caller piece on effective global warming rebuttal and works in various angles on leftist James Cameron as well.

Here's an excerpt:

“Avatar” is returning to theaters — this time in an even lengthier form — but the movie’s creator seems intent on once again mocking the very people that have made his success possible.

“Titanic” film director James Cameron quickly went for the oft-traversed intellectual low road of ad hominem attacks, recently attacking skeptics of global warming as those of piggish DNA.

“I think they’re swine,” said Cameron to the American Renewable Energy Day Summit in Aspen Sunday night. Laughingly, Cameron piggishly proclaimed “swine” just moments after receiving eco-ovations from the environmental Aspen crowd.

Why? He had praised a documentary that extolled the evils of a proposed hydropower project in Brazil that would ostensibly “displace a large tribal community,” therefore violating even more sacred limousine liberal codes: group identity and the hatred of capitalism.

Hydropower is “clean” by most mainstream standards, so go figure....

What do you think? Read the article here at the Daily Caller and please pass it along to various social media outlets.

Hot Air! Comment of the day..

In response to another shuck-and-jive shuffle by The POSOTUS featured as Ed Morrissey's Obamateurism of the Day:

Mord skewers The Pantload and all the sycophantic members of the Knee-pad Media by reminding us where this deficit and this sick economy comes from:

"He must have forgot[ten] (or assumes we all forget) that he helped pass both budgets in 2006 and 2007 that ended up giving him his little gift-wrapped deficit.

The man is completely shameless. Blaming Bush for a budget deficit that as a senator he had a hand in creating. Now they are not even passing a budget at all."

Fly the funny skies of Kulula..

From Bill Preston again..

Kulula Airlines is a small-budget airlines operating out of South Africa with a big-budget sense of humor. Get a load of their typical "livery" (aircraft paint job):


Kulula airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight "safety lecture" and announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples that have been heard or reported:

On a Kulula flight, (there is no assigned seating, you just sit where you want) passengers were apparently having a hard time choosing, when a flight attendant announced, "People, people we're not picking out furniture here, find a seat and get in it!"

On another flight with a very "senior" flight attendant crew, the pilot said, "Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants."

On landing, the stewardess said, "Please be sure to take all of your belongings. If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's something we'd like to have."

"There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this airplane."

"Thank you for flying Kulula. We hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride."

As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at  Durban   Airport  , a lone voice came over the loudspeaker: "Whoa, big fella. WHOA!"

After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in the Karoo, a flight attendant on a flight announced, "Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing like that, sure as hell everything has shifted."

From a Kulula employee: " Welcome aboard Kulula 271 to Port Elizabeth. To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seat belt; and, if you don't know how to operate one, you probably shouldn't be out in public unsupervised."

"In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child, pick your favorite."

Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, but we'll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your money, more than Kulula Airlines."

"Your seats cushions can be used for flotation; and in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments."

"As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses."

And from the pilot during his welcome message: "Kulula Airlines is pleased to announce that we have some of the best flight attendants in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!"

Heard on Kulula 255 just after a very hard landing in Cape Town: The flight attendant came on the intercom and said, "That was quite a bump and I know what y'all are thinking. I'm here to tell you it wasn't the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the flight attendant's fault, it was the asphalt."

Overheard on a Kulula flight into  Cape Town  , on a particularly windy and bumpy day: During the final approach, the Captain really had to fight it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight Attendant said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to The Mother City. Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!"

Another flight attendant's comment on a less than perfect landing: "We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal."

An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile, and give them a "Thanks for flying our airline. He said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment.  Finally everyone had gotten off except for a little old lady walking with a cane. She said, "Sir, do you mind if I ask you a question? Did we land, or were we shot down?"

After a real crusher of a landing in  Johannesburg  , the attendant came on with, "Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Captain Crash and the Crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt against the gate. And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we will open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal."

Part of a flight attendant's arrival announcement: "We'd like to thank you folks for flying with us today.  And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you'll think of Kulula Airways."

Heard on a Kulula flight. "Ladies and gentlemen, if you wish to smoke, the smoking section on this airplane is on the wing. If you can light 'em, you can smoke 'em."

A plane was taking off from  Durban Airport.  After it reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Flight Number 293, non-stop from Durban to Cape Town, The weather ahead is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Now sit back and relax... OH, MY GOODNESS!" Silence followed, and after a few minutes, the captain came back on the intercom and said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier. While I was talking to you, the flight attendant accidentally spilled a cup of hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!" A passenger then yelled, "That's nothing. You should see the back of mine!"


Groaner of the day..

From my friend and USAF Auxiliary mate, Bill Preston:

"A friend of mine just started his own business, making landmines that look like prayer mats.

It's doing well.  He says Prophets are going through the roof."


Need a paddle, Barry?

Just sayin'..

..the inimitable Scooter has another take on this:

Martha's Vineyard Still Attracts Sh*t
I thought this story referenced the Obama's latest vacation (this month) to Ted Kennedy's old drinking/whoring grounds, Martha's Vineyard, but it turns out it's about the salt-water lagoon fronting the first family’s vacation estate having high levels of fecal coliform bacteria.

Apparently, the reports of the First Lady pooping in the lagoon were true ("Hey Mom, what kind of fish is THAT?").

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
- Juvenal

Literally, "Who will guard the guards themselves?", have you ever wondered about those flame responses citing as an authoritarian debunker of the e-mail and internet stories, claims and other incredible particles we come across on our journey down electron-strewn corridors.

I got the following snopes debunking just the other day:

For the past few years (http://www.snopescom/ has positioned itself, or others have labeled it, as the 'tell-all final word' on any comment, claim and email. But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it - kinda makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know. It is run by a husband and wife team - that's right, no big office of investigators and researchers, no team of lawyers. It's just a mom-and-pop operation that began as a hobby. David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started the website about 13 years ago and they have no formal background or experience in investigative research. After a few years it gained popularity believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the past couple of years people started asking questions who was behind it and did they have a selfish motivation?

The reason for the questions - or skepticisms - is a result of claiming to have the bottom line facts to certain questions or issue when in fact they have been proven wrong. Also, there were criticisms the Mikkelsons were not really investigating and getting to the 'true' bottom of various issues.

A few months ago, when my State Farm agent Bud Gregg in Mandeville hoisted a political sign referencing Barack Obama and made a big splash across the Internet, 'supposedly' the Mikkelson's claim to have researched this issue before posting their findings on In their statement they claimed the corporate office of State Farm pressured Gregg into taking down the sign, when in fact nothing of the sort 'ever' took place. I personally contacted David Mikkelson (and he replied back to me) thinking he would want to get to the bottom of this and I gave him Bud Gregg's contact phone numbers - and Bud was going to give him phone numbers to the big exec's at State Farm in Illinois who would have been willing to speak with him about it. He never called Bud. In fact, I learned from Bud Gregg that no one from ever contacted anyone with State Farm.

Yet, issued a statement as the 'final factual word' on the issue as if they did all their homework and got to the bottom of things - not!

Then it has been learned the Mikkelson's are very Democratic (party) and extremely liberal. As we all now know from this presidential election, liberals have a purpose agenda to discredit anything that appears to be conservative. There has been much criticism lately over the Internet with people pointing out the Mikkelson's liberalism revealing itself in their website findings. Gee, what a shock?

So, I say this now to everyone who goes to to get what they think to be the bottom line fact 'proceed with caution.' Take what it says at face value and nothing more. Use it only to lead you to their references where you can link to and read the sources for yourself. Plus, you can always Google a subject and do the research yourself. It now seems apparent that's all the Mikkelson's do. After all, I can personally vouch from my own experience for their 'not' fully looking into things.

http://http// or http://http//

I have found this to be true also! Many videos of Obama I tried to verify on Snopes and they said they were False. Then they gave their liberal slant! I have suspected some problems with snopes for some time now, but I have only caught them in half-truths. If there is any subjectivity they do an immediate full left rudder.

Truth or Fiction, is a better source for verification, in my opinion.

I have recently discovered that is owned by a flaming liberal and this man is in the tank for Obama. There are many things they have listed on their site as a hoax and yet you can go to You tube yourself and find the video of Obama actually saying these things. So you see, you cannot and should not trust, ever for anything that remotely resembles truth! I don't even trust them to tell me if email chains are hoaxes anymore.

A few conservative speakers on Myspace told me about A few months ago and I took it upon myself to do a little research to find out if it was true. Well, I found out for myself that it is true. Anyway just FYI please don't use anymore for fact checking and make your friends aware of their political leanings as well. Many people still think is neutral and they can be trusted as factual. We need to make sure everyone is aware that that is a hoax in itself.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'd heard this before.

But when I got to the signature block I almost fell off my chair. I knew this guy. Yeah, I worked as a contract computer programmer in the 80s and 90s and had a number of gigs through Alan Strong's company, CPS. So I will be seeking out Alan (if only to renew an old friendship) to find out what he knows and what documentation he has on his refutation of snopes. I am sure it will be interesting.

Not that I believe that snopes is a hoax. I mean, I can't believe that these folks are plotting to undermine conservative thought from their fortress in the San Fernando Valley. It's just I doubt everything some lib throws at me to debunk a story I have posted.It spoils all the fun.

Just for grins, I visited the WikiPedia entry on snopes and got this:

Snopes receives more complaints that it is too liberal than that it is too conservative, but insists that it applies the same debunking standards to all political stories. FactCheck reviewed a sample of Snopes' responses to political rumors regarding George W. Bush, Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, and found them to be free from bias in all cases. FactCheck noted that Barbara Mikkelson was a Canadian citizen (and thus unable to vote in American elections) and David Mikkelson was an independent who was once a registered Republican. "You’d be hard-pressed to find two more apolitical people," David Mikkelson told them.

..and then trundled off to Factcheck itself and found a rebuttal to the liberal meme that seemed to be imbued with even-handedness and redolent with citations and references. But I am a little taken aback by the masthead at FactCheck:

You notice it says "A PROJECT OF THE ANNENBERG PUBLIC POLICY CENTER"? Ain't them the guys who sponsor all of that NPR crapola? Then they must be a bastion of conservative thought, right?

So now I am all turned around and just don't know whom to believe. I think I need to put John Stossel on speed dial so I can adjudicate these things.

You know, I think Ronald Reagan probably said it best:

"Trust but verify"

I'm going to get a drink. You want one while I am up?

Tooting my own horn..Hot Air Comment of the Day..

In a fit of rank self-promotion, I wanted to share with you a comment I made because of what Allahpundit wrote over at Hot Air! today.

It's not that I dislike AP; he puts up some pretty good stuff. Just, once in a while, he sends me over the edge with his inability to drop the hammer or pull the trigger. In the above-linked post, he wrote something that caused me to reach critical mass and to which I responded:

“But they’re like the bitterness that Americans feel about the 2009 economic stimulus, which was oversold and has become politically toxic because its success is hard to measure.”

..hard to measure? Hard to measure? Let’s see, practically every stat, every indicator, every scintilla of objective criteria since February 2009 has plummeted, risen, flagged, waned, ballooned, and generally trended in an unfavorable direction.

Any whisper, breath, or hint of success in these criteria have been blown away by subsequent measurements. People laughingly hired at brain-dead-burger-flipper-like jobs (the census and other laughable make-work, CCC-like, new deal boondoggles) have been returned to the streets. Many people have been out of work for so long that they have dropped off the radar and are eking out a living by the most pathetic means possible and living off the meager stipend this leadership actually believes can represent stimulus in and of itself.

This nation slides inexorably towards total catastrophic break down and you say this is “hard to measure”.

AP, it’s like saying that the force of a 20-megaton. 2,000 foot air burst is hard to measure because the instruments got blown away.

Get serious, dude..

..and actually read the stuff you and Ed put up each hour, day, and week for the past 18 months.

Any whisper, breath, or hint of success in these criteria have been blown away by subsequent measurements. People laughingly hired at brain-dead-burger-flipper-like jobs (the census and other laughable make-work, CCC-like, new deal boondoggles) have been returned to the streets. Many people have been out of work for so long that they have dropped off the radar and are eking out a living by the most pathetic means possible and living off the meager stipend this leadership actually believes can represent stimulus in and of itself.

This nation slides inexorably towards total catastrophic break down and you say this is “hard to measure”.

AP, it’s like saying that the force of a 20-megaton. 2,000 foot air burst is hard to measure because the instruments got blown away.

Get serious, dude..

..and actually read the stuff you and ad Ed put up each hour, day, and week for the past 18 months.

The War Planner on August 17, 2010 at 11:35 PM

Again, AP and Ed Morrissey do great work and I expect them to be objective. Unhinged rhetoric is for stiffs like me who visit what John Mortimer's character Horace Rumpole calls "the reviving drinks tray" and wades into a tempestuous sea hurling lightening bolts like the Norse god Thor. Think the hoary old Monty Python 16 Tonne weight dropping on someone in those wonderful sketches.

But I mean seriously, his inattention to reality in this case is kinda like your heading out across the Arizona desert with the next petrol station 95 miles away and your fuel gauge on "E".


"Boy, he sucks!"

From the Obama Fail Blog, some candid viddy of The Pantload on the links and some equally candid audio commentary..

"Boy, he sucks!"

Naw. Not going to do it at this juncture. Wouldn't be prudent stealing the thunder of one of the most consistent and hardworking chronicler of this butt wipe's four year march into Epic Fail Land. Just click on the link and head over there y'self, old son. Believe me, it will be worth it!


Hey, Odie, Scooter's back from vacation..

..and he be bad:

A heaping helping of inconsideration and disregard..

I know most of you out there don't like California and, in particular, the Lotus Land that is SoCal and Hollywood. But I am writing this not to evince a scintilla of sympathy from you all, but to provide you with a semi-first-hand account of how we proles (me, Left Coast Rebel, Lipton T. Bagg when he returns and other bloggers out here in the Southland) are dissed just like the rest of you folks in flyover country are.

Or should I say "No Flyover"?

It seems our beloved President Hatchet-Ass is traipsing across the county stumping for the Democrat coffers and attempting to be seen with those Democrat politicians who aren't scurrying like cockroaches when the light is turned on. Yesterday and today it's Los Angeles's turn on folks out here aren't the least bit excited about the effect this is having on the already-precarious traffic situation.

The massive traffic jam that resulted from President Obama's motorcade and speech Monday night in Hancock Park is prompting calls for an investigation from some residents, who say they were caught in traffic for hours.

Obama was only in L.A. for a few hours, but his presence caused numerous streets to be blocked off.

I am sure you know the back story; it's not like he's visiting us because we had a massive earthquake or are in the midst of the annual near-disaster firestorms we seem to rack up when the Santa Ana winds hit. No, he was out here to reach into the pockets of some bum-osculating Hollywood liberal types who wanted to pass along a chunk of the loot you fork over in movie theaters to the Democrats. Presumably, he and Pelosi and Reid realized that we proles have no money left.

But the butt-kissers who dropped in on a TV producer's house to rub shoulders with THE POSOTUS were tickled pink to fork over as much as $30 large per couple. Outside and abroad in SoCal the mood was not nearly so jovial.

Residents reported that commutes and errands that typically took minutes turned into hours-long ordeals. One particular complaint was that streets remained blocked for hours -- even when Obama was inside TV producer John Wells' Hancock Park home at a fund-raiser.

"What has occurred is way beyond reasonable and can only be described as negligent," L.A. resident Kevin McCarthy said in an e-mail to The Times. "If it isn't my story, currently evolving, of beginning my 1 mile journey home at 5pm and at 7:50pm now being 3 miles from home with no viable idea of how to get closer, it should be about the two sirens-wailing ambulances I have witnessed stuck in this unnecessary gridlock."

..and one also presumes that these limousine liberals were not inconvenienced as the made their way to Wells' house.

I appreciate POTUS, FLOTUS, and VPOTUS security and all that, but this is becoming a pattern of cavalier disregard for the teeming masses as we scurry hither and yon in an effort to earn our daily crust. Of course, you will remember how the FLOTUS flounced her ample posterior through the narrow streets of Marbella and had the beach in front of the house scoured of hoi polloi. But you may not have known that The Pantload's clueless sidekick, Plugs, caused a similar flap a little over one month ago when he clogged LAX and environs so he could make an appearance on the Jay Leno show (emphasis added).

Vice President Joe Biden held up airplane traffic for hours on Friday night at Los Angeles International Airport after an appearance on Jay Leno‘s ‘Tonight Show,’ leaving restless passengers fuming.

A spokesman for the vice president said he was unaware of the FAA temporary flight restriction that stopped flights coming in, and delayed those going out.

“I know we didn’t ask for anything,” Biden’s spokesman James Carney told TheWrap. “There was no sign of any stoppage. And there shouldn’t have been one.”

Oh, but there was. Passengers were stuck for anywhere from 45 minutes to four hours as a result (including this writer), leaving many of them fuming. In one LAX terminal, flights on Horizon, Alaska and Virgin Air had three-hour delays.

“I sincerely hope that the vice president was oblivious to the number of lives he inconvenienced by deciding to land at LAX and his attempted humor on the Tonight Show,” said Will Roos, the owner of an environmental company GreenUp who was on his way back from a business trip in Sun Valley.

He added: “Just on our small propeller plane it resulted in half the passengers missing their flight, everyone missing their checked luggage, and more than four hours of delay for those lucky enough to make it on the plane."

I find the VPOTUS's cluelessness -- while expected -- breathtaking.

Presidential and other dignitary visits cause the FAA to issue NOTAMS and VIP TFRs (Notice To Airmen and Temporary Flight Restrictions) which also wreak havoc. In addition to clogging up the streets, these visits restrict or eliminate air traffic around Air Force One or Air Force Two and this causes the delays and serious dents in commercial aviation endeavors.

You want a treat? Google "Obama + TFR" and see how many similar instances of Obama flying into Oahu, Chicago, Las Vegas, and other destinations causing massive jams and inconveniences.

But it seems that Obama is not as clueless as Biden is. He has issued threats to use Air Force One in his quest to saddle us all with health care:

"I've Got A Boeing, And I'm Not Afraid To Use It," President Says

ANN April 1st Special Edition: The FAA has imposed a nationwide TFR until further notice at the request of President Barack Obama. The President, embarking on a campaign to pump up poll numbers for the recently-passed health care legislation, said he might need to travel just about anywhere on a moment's notice.

"I am asking the FAA to restrict most flight activities until we get the numbers up on this health care bill," the President said in a news briefing. "We have polling organizations all over the country conducting spot checks on the law's popularity, and where we see a need to go make an appearance, we want to be able to do that," the President said.

(Of course, the date on that article was 1 April 2010 so..)

But it does get to the point where once, a while ago, one flight school got so infuriated at an Obama visit because his flight instructors were grounded, he billed the government for lost revenue:

Jim Gray has submitted a bill to the White House and the Democratic National Committee in the amount of $2565 dollars, representing the business which has been lost at his Oakland Flyers flight school during a campaign fund-raising visit by President Obama.

The visit Thursday night brought a TFR to the Bay area of California from 1700 till 1000 Friday, which meant Gray's fleet sat parked, students had to have their lessons canceled, and both the flight school and the instructors lost money.

Gray comments, "If it was for something related to global affairs, I'd have no problem with it. But if it's just for fund raising, kind of do it on somebody else's dime."

You know, maybe Mr Gray has got something there. If the DNC and/or Obama had to shell out for every person they inconvenienced, maybe they'd pick their arrival, duration, and departure times somewhat more considerately of the little guy.

..ain't holding my breath.

LCR Exclusive: Director Mike Wilson of Michael Moore Hates America

by the Left Coast Rebel

Recently I just happened to come across a brilliant conservative documentary titled Michael Moore Hates America via Netflix on the family Wii console. Filmed in 2004 but still highly relevant, the movie was charming, interesting, funny and best of all - entertaining. The flick didn't brow beat it's particular angle on iconic leftist Michael Moore but more or less laid things out in a fair way - despite the title.

After viewing Michael Moore Hates America (and loving it), I put on my Google-search-cap and hunted down director Mike Wilson's contact. I wanted to fire him off a atta-boy and a quick request for an interview. Proving that sometimes all you have to do is ask - Mr. Wilson quickly responded and accepted my invitation for a Q&A. The following may be best viewed after viewing the movie.

F*ck Tea? More like Poopy-Mouth Kool-Aid

by the Left Coast Rebel

This morning Carol at No Sheeples Here weighed in on the 'f*ck tea' group formation (that essentially just throws the f-bomb around and sells stuff). Sheeples:

The Coffee Party was a liberal agenda bust. The Cocoa Party was too. Then came One Nation. It too was mired in its own quicksand.

Carol is right, perhaps we could call 'f*ck tea' the 'potty-mouth-poopy-pants' party?

Carol's myriad talents were put to use in a fabulous Youtube video creation, (NSFW, turn down the volume to avoid the f-bomb) video, 'F*ck Kool-Aid' :

Brilliant, please make this video go viral.

Sheeples also notes a brilliant17 point 'commandment' list authored by Smitty over at The Other McCain yesterday. Consider it a Sacred Commandments list forced upon us by the ruling class today. A few of the best:

#5 - Thou shalt not bow down thyself to the Tea Parties, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy Government am a jealous, peevish, all-around bitchy Government, visiting the iniquity of the Founding Fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them raaaaacists that hate me;

#7 - Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy Government in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. The Attorney General shall be empowered to call the bitter cling-ons in the Tea Party a ‘nation of cowards’.

# 17 - Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, again, dispensed with following the era of slavery, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. See, if you covet materialistically for only yourself, you might be a capitalist. Focus on economic justice, a much more nuanced approach to avarice, and reach through the LORD thy Government.

Somewhere down there..

..some MOOZ-lems want to build one of their mosques..

..I think close to here:

I wonder what this person would have thought of this idea?

..and I wonder what they would have had to say about it?

..and I wonder what you will do about it?

Oh, and to the anonymous troll who visited a few posts ago: is this racist and insensitive enough for you? If not, I got a few more well-chosen words for you and your rag-head, camel-driving, goat-roping pieces of dessicated dromedary turd friends.

Y'all come back, ya heah?


Signs of the times..

Approaching yet another milestone on the turd-strewn highway of miracles brought to you by the Democrats and the Obama Clown troupe: Jobless claims hit a new high.

There's a signpost up ahead, you're entering "Recovery Summer".

("Obamaville, The Best Little Jobless Place in America. Population: 4.5 million and unexpectedly rising.")

But, before you go screaming down the highway at breakneck speed enjoying the open road, you might want to proceed with caution.

MOORie Antoinette continues her regal ways..

Hat tip to a HillBuzz Boyz commenter on the First Wookie's visit to the Maryland State House today:

Michelle Obama, Sasha visit Md. State House

CSC_0814.JPGA visit to Maryland's State House billed as a sort of First Family summer school for 9-year-old Sasha Obama and her cousins briefly halted work inside the state capital and produced a spectacle in Annapolis on Tuesday as police pushed crowds further from the capital.

Instead of just dropping by with a small security contingent and pressing the flesh with gummint werkerz, Her MOOStress had the joint shut down while she toured the place alone (emphasis added):

The visit was described as a "private tour" and a Washington Post reporter with an office in the State House was told to leave the building as the Obamas arrived. Other reporters were told they could not enter the building once the tour had begun. Several House and Senate staffers who were allowed to remain inside said they were told to turn away down hallways or into offices as the family passed. Outside a crowd of about 50 onlookers were pushed back three times, ultimately across a roadway., isn't that the limit? Oh, but this was an important part of their children's schooling:

A spokesman for Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) said Michelle Obama remarked that the tour was one of a series of summer educational trips.

..leave no child behind? Don't you wish all of the nation's kids had such an opportunity?

November 2012 cannot come soon enough for me.


By the Pacific's Rolling Waters, Loyally Every Son and Daughter..

Change of tempo here; time to gloat about the old Alma Mater. You know, that perennial basketball powerhouse. Well, it seems that there's a new sheriff in town and things are looking different in the Pack they're up to now. Here's a little sunshine blowing up every Bruin's skirt, courtesy of the Bruins Nation blog:

Per Stewart Mandel and Andy Staples of SI.COM, UCLA and Tennessee are traditional powers on the upswing:

The Bruins have several factors working in their favor entering their third season under Rick Neuheisel. Most notably, their cross-town rival just got hit with heavy NCAA sanctions (10 docked scholarships each of the next three seasons) that, at the very least, will benefit UCLA in head-to-head recruiting. But the Bruins weren't exactly struggling in that arena: Even coming off a 7-6 season, they landed's No. 8 class last spring.

"I think we're right on the cusp of being there," said Neuheisel. "The last three years, we've gotten great recruiting classes. We've done our R&D. Now we need to execute the business plan."

If UCLA, which enters preseason camp with just one projected senior starter, struggles this fall, it could spark grumblings about Neuheisel. But by then the foundation should be in place for either him or a successor to instigate a breakthrough right around the time USC feels the brunt of its sanctions. Remember, the Trojans started the 2000s with 5-7 and 6-6 seasons.

CRN has done a wonderful job setting the program up for success, and I (of course) agree that the program is positioned for some very good football.

I do not agree, however, that struggles this year could place CRN on the hotseat, as this article suggests. The fact of the matter is, CRN had to essentially start from scratch. While 4-8 and 7-6 are not good records, they were successful seasons for the most part.

The coaching staff has done a great job putting our team in a position to win. Beating Tennessee (the other power on the rise per SI) was amazing. If some of those close losses are turned in to close wins, competing for the Pac-10 crown soon is not out of the question.

..o.k., for those of you who want to talk smack, better have rung up at least three or four NCAA roundball titles (UCLA has eleven), and something approaching 100 NCAA titles in all sports (UCLA has 105 and counting), then we'll talk.

If you are a devotee of the Figueroa Felons, you have my condolences.


With two you get egg roll..

Man, I really do hate these Chinese animé pieces. The characters are not accurate and one has to deal with no subtitles. Plus they are becoming as tiring as the Hitler-Meltdown-in-the-Bunker posts over at You Tube.

But the zing delivered to MOORie Antoinette in this one is pretty good and, of course, deserved.

Well, at least they got some things right.

Massive hat tip to The Obama Fail Blog.


The Pantload's Cup Runneth Over..

The Daily RAZ has a new all-timer for your reading pleasure:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 24% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-six percent (46%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -22 (see trends).
This matches the lowest Approval Index rating yet measured for this president. Platinum Members can see key demographic information and other members-only information.

Much as I would like to think that this is a harbinger of a great public toilet flush, alas, Scott attributes the sudden downward drift to statistical noise. But we will always have and the fact that there is an emerging perception that The Gang That Can't Shoot Straight..well..can't shoot straight.

Over the past week, the Approval Index ratings have been more volatile than usual and it is unlikely that perceptions of the president have shifted that much. Rather, with results reported on a three-day rolling average basis, the volatility appears to be the result of one day with results outside of the normal range working its way through the system. Over the past couple of months, the president’s full-month Approval Index rating has been -16 or -17.

Still in all, you ever do one of those school or work projects where you are running some statistics and stuff like that so much that you begin to get a feel for what's happening? I follow the RAZ DT daily and, while i am in no league with Scott and crew, I just get this sense of where the numbers are going and it's pretty reflective of a public waking up to the fact that he's a charlatan in just phoning it in.

..gee, do ya' think?
