With a Bullet, Baby!

Sarah Palin's new book, "Going Rogue: An American Life", won't be in stores until November 17th. Barnes and Noble and Amazon both started taking pre-orders today.

It's already the #1 bestseller on Barnes and Noble.

And #6 and climbing on Amazon.

UPDATE (9/30 @ 07:45): #5 on Amazon now. Give it a couple hours. People are just starting to wake up.

Double-entendre intended.

UPDATE II: #3 as of 8:55 AM.

UPDATE III: She just bumped Glenn Beck from the #2 spot.

UPDATE IV: Ding! #1 on Amazon now.

Good. I can finally stop updating this post.

Lowering Burying the Bar

After an exhaustive search of the last 5-1/2 years' worth of material in my archives, I can now safely say that I have never accused Whoopi Goldberg of being "smart-smart".

Hot Air: Video: Whoopi says Polanski didn’t commit “rape-rape”

Let's recap, shall we?

We've got Obama's good friends at ACORN caught on video offering their services to help someone evade taxes while setting up an international human trafficking/sex slave ring.

We've got Obama's "safe schools czar" on tape giving his blessing to the statutory rape of a 15-year-old boy.

And, now, the "progressive" brain trusts on The View are telling us that it's actually kinda OK to drug and rape a teenage girl just so long as she's "aware" of what's going on at the time.

What exactly does one have to do to draw the ire of these people???

I mean, other than buying some new clothes on the RNC's dime.

Come On, We All Knew It Wouldn't Last

Kim du Toit's "retirement", that is.

Via E-Mail:

Yeah, it's your favorite gun nut calling...

From the "Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Roam The Internet" department:

Connie and I have decided to explore this strange new technology called "radio." Starting on Saturday October 3rd, we will begin a weekend Internet radio show on BlogTalkRadio.com.

The show will run on Saturday and Sunday evenings, at 7pm Eastern/6pm Central. You can find a BlogTalkRadio widget to listen to our "preview" show at our new site: www.kimandconnie.com.


The blogosphere's cantankerosity levels were running a little low.

You Gotta Measure Off the Asshole Chart...

...to do this.

Investigators say a Philadelphia teenager wrapped a cat in duct tape, put it in a shopping bag and left it in a neighbor’s backyard.

Simple solution, really.

Find the kid who did this, slather him up with beef gravy, and throw him in a roomful of hungry lions and tigers (throw in some jackals for good measure), armed only with a roll of duct tape.

So Now You Know

What a 6'-11" mental midget looks like.

Ask Not For Whom the Cuckoo Clock Tolls...

It tolls for another one of Obama's nutcake friends.

It’s been 89 days since Manuel Zelaya was booted from power. He’s sleeping on chairs, and he claims his throat is sore from toxic gases and “Israeli mercenaries” are torturing him with high-frequency radiation.

His friends tried to warn him.

"Dude, you gotta use HEAVY DUTY aluminum foil, not that supermarket brand crap!"

Who Doesn't Love a Good Spicoli Reference?

And, I quote paraphrase...

"Hey, Phil, you guys had raw data when you came in here."

"Well, something must have happened to it."

Great Moments in Cuteness

Walking past the glass display case in the Wal-Mart sporting goods section, one of my girls pointed at the group of rifle scopes inside and said, "Oh cool! Double-sided flashlights!".

She was then given a quick lesson on how to shoot things from far away.

Sunday, September 20, 2009

Well, OK Then

Sure, it's grossly unconstitutional and a vulgar affront to the principles of freedom and individual liberty, but as long as it's not a back-handed tax increase.

UPDATE: Also from that article comes this load of fail.

"What it's saying is, is that we're not going to have other people carrying your burdens for you anymore," said Obama.

This guy's not even trying to sound truthful anymore.

"Right now everybody in America, just about, has to get auto insurance. Nobody considers that a tax increase."

I don't even know where to begin with that one.

Last I checked, people who choose not to own cars aren't forced to purchase auto insurance. But, I'm sure he's got a plan to change that soon.

If he's reduced to dragging out the horseshit auto insurance analogy, he's in trouble. Luckily for him though, no one in his congregation [aka: mainstream news outlets] will call him out on it.

To Quote Harry Callahan...

Well, I'm all broken up over that man's rights!

Convicted shoe bomber Richard C. Reid claimed in a handwritten federal lawsuit in Colorado that the government violated his First Amendment rights by restricting his access to books, TV, phone calls, letters and religious activities. In June, the Department of Justice - without explanation - lifted those restrictions.


Below are some of the limits placed on Reid, according to his 2007 lawsuit, in which he claimed: “There is no sound reason or justification” for the restrictions.

Denied timely access to news articles and TV or radio news stations. Access limited to newspapers that were one month old, sometimes with articles missing.

How's this for a "sound reason"?


This piece of shit should have been beaten to death (twice) by the people he tried to kill that day. Instead, at the rate we're going in what used to be the United States of America, he'll probably have a job at ACORN by Christmas.

Reid also demanded the government “compensate” him for the “hardship” caused by the restrictions, saying they caused him “stress and emotional turmoil.”

Hey, why not? This administration has yet to meet a taxpayer-funded bailout plan they didn't like.

Do you take cash?

The Democrats in Congress "have concerns" about some of the inflammatory language that us violent, hate-filled, racist, scrotum-sucking Nazis are using.

OK, then.

Ready the Memory Hole!

How long until this page goes bye-bye?

When Obama met with ACORN leaders in November, he reminded them of his history with ACORN and his beginnings in Illinois as a Project Vote organizer, a nonprofit focused on voter rights and education. Senator Obama said, "I come out of a grassroots organizing background. That's what I did for three and half years before I went to law school. That's the reason I moved to Chicago was to organize. So this is something that I know personally, the work you do, the importance of it. I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work.”

Obligatory Screengrab:

I see there's a "Report Objectionable Content" link.


Like Michelle Malkin said:

Barack Obama can no more disown ACORN than he could disown his own shadow.

Sidearm Notwithstanding, Of Course

How Far We've Fallen

To disagree is normal. To debate is healthy. To speak one's mind freely is a cherished right. But to slander anyone and everyone who disagrees with you as a racist, for the purposes of shutting down the conversation and rendering real debate impossible, is to admit to your own moral bankruptcy and intellectual failings.

Roughly translated: Jimmy Carter, Maxine Waters, Hank Johnson, and their footsoldiers in the national media can all go piss up a rope.

By crying "RACISM!!!" at every opportunity, these people demeaning the legacy of Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr., and all who stood up and fought, some giving their lives, to beat back the tides of real racial hatred and division in this country.

And, yes, I'm putting our president on that "rope pissing" list as well. He hasn't said word one about this despicable and disgraceful campaign of race baiting and slander that has reached a fever pitch.

I knew full well that as of January 2009, all dissenting opinion and criticism of this president and his policies would be labeled as racist hate speech, but the levels to which it has risen simply disgust me, and should disgust anyone with the capacity for rational thought.

Quote of the Year: Media Bias Edition

Kyle Smith (NY Post):

Only in Timesland can you be in charge of doling out $80 billion in contracts...and be less important than the Naked Cowboy.



No one should ever be made to prostrate themselves in the presence of that law-breaking piece of garbage, Charlie Rangel, and apologize for the high "crime" of talking out of turn.

Politico: Obama sees 'coarsening' of national debate

Welcome to the party, pal.

* I was gonna go with "clueless", but he knows EXACTLY what he's saying and doing here.

Another Quick Observation

"Fred Thompson would be a horrible president, because he has no 'fire in the belly.'"

"Barack Obama would be an awesome president, because of his calm demeanor."

Yes, the Hopenchange automatons actually added those two statements together and saw nothing disconnected about it.

Variation On a Theme

We Have a Winner!

(via the Rottweiler)

It's the Hopenchange Way

Ignoring ACORN's willingness to aid and abet in the international trafficking of under-aged girls for the purposes of forced prostitution, and instead prosecuting the people who exposed them.

ANYTHING to protect the image of Dear Leader, young women and children be damned.

[closing comment about "whites of their eyes" redacted]

Friday, September 11, 2009


I'm sure that if George Bush or Dick Cheney had been a prominent member of an organization recently busted for offering to serve as a tax fraud front group providing cover for the human trafficking of under-aged, Central American sex slaves, there'd be nary a peep on the news wires.

Feelin' that Hopenchange yet?

Three Quick Observations

1. Until Joe Biden goes on record calling for Charlie Rangel to step down as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, he has no God-damned business whatsoever describing Joe Wilson's actions last night as an embarrassment to the United States Congress.

2. Also, if, as President Obama pointed out last night, there are many details in the health care reform plan that still need to be worked out, what the hell was he doing this summer trying to ram this bill through Congress prior to the August recess, before any of those details were even allowed to see daylight?

3. Lastly, this one from Arnold Kling at the Atlantic:

[Obama] said,

Reducing the waste and inefficiency in Medicare and Medicaid will pay for most of this plan.

And if we don't pass this plan, does he intend to keep the waste and inefficiency, out of spite?

I honestly don't want to know the answer to that one.

Though, I have a pretty good guess as to what it might be.

Quote of the Epoch


The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.

- Barack Obama


Now Obama is asking Congress to raise the debt ceiling, something lawmakers are almost certain to do despite misgivings about the federal debt.

Feel the hope.

Taste the change.

Let them surround you like a velvet nightie.

Off For the Long Weekend

Beer, sailing, cribbage, etc. Woe is me.

Nothing Shocking Here

It's not like anything being proposed by the Democrats these days has anything do with actually making health care more affordable.

It's the Credibility, Stupid

I'll start to take the fans of government-controlled health care seriously as soon as they can say with a straight face that a woman's health care choices should not just be between her and her physician, and that there should be a Republican-appointed health czar as the final arbiter thereof.

Quick Question

If what Barack Obama has to say to our schoolchildren is so important that he has to say in on live television, and if it's a message that our children really need to hear, will he be pulling his daughters out of their expensive private school and having them attend a public school in the District for the day so they can share in this valuable experience?

Hopenchange in Action

I Guess It All Depends...

...on one's definition of unbelievable.

“It’s absolutely unbelievable that a Massachusetts state representative would be that hypocritical, let alone be that bold to actually drive his car with political plates to a New Hampshire liquor store."

And, like clockwork, Rep. Rodrigues blames his abject stupidity on, yep, you guessed it.

He also blamed the brouhaha on "Republican demagoguery."

"Unfortunately, I think that’s why the Republican Party is in such bad shape in Massachusetts," Rodrigues is quoted as saying. "The electorate here is smart enough to figure out what they’re up to."

First off, anyone who votes to keep this arrogant piece of snake shit in office has as much smarts and common sense as a bag of can openers.

Second, I'd like to extend a sincere apology to snake shit. That was a cheap shot. I'm sorry.

Every Picture Tells a Story

Meet Michael J. Rodrigues.

Mr. Rodrigues is a state representative in Massachusetts, who serves on the House Ways and Means Committee, you know, the group of folks who help to create all kinds of new and exciting ways to tax the commoner class into submission on a near-daily basis.

Mr. Rodrigues was one of the many "progressive" legislators who voted a while back to lift, for the first time ever, the Commonwealth's sales tax exemption on in-store purchases of alcoholic beverages, bumping the sales tax rate from zero up to the newly raised rate of 6.25 percent.

That tax hike went into effect on August 1st of this year. At the time the tax hike was being debated (and I use that verb in the loosest of loose terms imaginable), there were quite a few people and small business owners speaking out in opposition saying that it would result in more businesses losing more money as more shoppers in Massachusetts took more of their spending money north of the border to New Hampshire.

These people were, of course, ignored entirely or simply dismissed as being paranoid and delusional. The legislators in Massachusetts assured the voters that this new tax was necessary to help fund substance abuse programs in the Commonwealth to the tune of $80 million or so (really, we promise!).

Surely, on one would want to see these people deprived of the resources they need to rehabilitate themselves to become productive members of society once again, right?


Wait...where was I?

Oh, yeah, Representative Rodrigues, whom you've now met.

Now, meet his front license plate.

Nothing too unusual there. Let me add some context.

A reader who shall remain nameless sent me this beautiful picture of Rep. Rodrigues car in the parking lot of the New Hampshire State Liquor Store on I-95 in Hampton.

No. Additional. Commentary. Required.

Here's the audio on this from Howie Carr's show today.

UPDATE: From the nameless photographer.

So the guy comes out with a couple of cases of booze in his carriage and loads them into his car. I asked him if this was "official" business or personal. He was surprised by my questioning and asked what business is it of mine as to what he's doing. I told him I was a Mass citizen. He said it was personal-I pointed out the state car with official plates and he said it was "his".

I didn't ask him WHY he was in NH purchasing alcohol instead of supporting Mass businesses and the 6.25% tax they just levied on us common folk...

He had his wife with him. I left ahead of him and as I was driving down 95 into Mass doing the speed limit, he blew by me doing about 75 in the left lane.
