Begala: "I don't need some asshole from Vermont telling me what to do."

Via original reportage at Kos.

Um, Paul? Yes, you do.

That's exactly what you need. It's exactly what the entire Beltway needs.

NOTE You'd think Paul would have learned from his last experience making smart ass quips. But n-o-o-o-o-o .... Read more about Begala: "I don't need some asshole from Vermont telling me what to do."

The Very Model of a Modern Major...Admiral??

The spousal unit, a former Navy man himself, heard this on the news tonight and couldn't speak for several minutes while his jaw worked its way up off the floor. From DefenseNews.com:

U.S. Navy Adm. William “Fox” Fallon, chief of the U.S. Pacific Command has been tapped to replace Army Gen. John Abizaid as the commander of U.S. Central Command and overseer of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a media report.[snip]

Peter Wood and the New Anger

Peter writes in the National Review Online:

The Liberalitarian Dust-Up The Angry Left rebukes a would-be friend.

I have corresponded with Peter in the past over other opinion pieces, so I couldn't help myself from writing to him again. I need to say that I like Peter, that were we geographically close I like to think we would be friends, but his vision of the world is just slightly askew. Anyway, here is what I said.

Your Homework Assignment: Kill This Meme

Chris (and in an embedded link, Sirota) knocks one out of the park. Simple question for you: when was the last time someone in your life, while discussing politics, said, "Gosh, I wish Democrats could be more bipartisan. It's the biggest problem facing America today." Exactly. Nice work, Chris. This is so simple even the Beltway 500 will perceive that we see their lack of clothes.

Don't Tell Me the Bad News, Please

Recently, I had a discussion with a family member over this post, which is as rhetorical and inflammatory as I know how to make one. I wrote it because at the time, I felt that no one had brought up the very obvious parallels to the execution of Saddam and the lynchings of black men in America's past. Decent people agree that lynching is a form of terrorism, and that it is obscene to treat human beings in that way, just as it is indecent for any human being to desire to watch such a thing.

Lanny Davis, just salivating to endorse McCain/Lieberman

McCain/Lieberman on the Vanity08 ticket--the Centrist, Moderate exemplars--is the second line of defense that The Aristocrats of The Beltway have, after nobbling Pelosi and Reid. Just go read this Beltway Steamer of a post by Lanny Davis at his new blog (via MyDD); you can see where he's heading. The concluding quote from MacCauley, of all people, is particularly fine: Read more about Lanny Davis, just salivating to endorse McCain/Lieberman

Winger Wit

Tags: 

Just because their witlessness has trashed America's legacy, that doesn't mean conservatives can't be witty.

Remember how truly funny Dennis Miller became when he got on the power-to-the-powerful bandwagon? That's shit's comedy gold, man.

The new master of thigh-slapping jingoism and race hate awaits you at the prestigious Student Operated Press. Ladies and germs, give it up for John Lillpop!

First, the world's largest straw woman:

The Wisdom of the Little People

Boo waxes eloquently about some cabinet shuffling going on at the White House, and all I can say is that I really don't have an opinion or theory, because as has been the case so often in the last six years, it's clear we don't have "all the information" necessary to make a sound conclusion. Except this: historically, moving high level staff around in the manner of Bush these last few years is a sign of chaos, confusion, rudderlessness and lack of direction.

Throwing Down the Gauntlet

Atta J beat me to it this morning, that little fez wearing, vegetable eating...well, anyway, that's not important. What is important, in addition to noting once again that our Famously Free Press took two fraking weeks to let us know about it, is that our First Challenge of the new Congress is clear. Say it with me, Dems: UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Or if you prefer:

unlawful, illegal, immoral, against the intent of the Founders, antidemocratic, unAmerican, monarchist, imperial. Read more about Throwing Down the Gauntlet
