Meet The President’s BFFs: Bill Ayers And Bernadine Dohrn At Occupy Union Square (NSFW)

Bill Ayers:  “I get up every morning thinking today I’m going to make a difference. Today I’m going to end capitalism. Today I’m going to make a revolution. I go to bed every night disappointed but…I’m back again tomorrow.”

Increasingly Influential Network Says Buh-Bye To Butthurt Bathtub Boy

From the New York Times we learn this shocking news: 

For nearly a year now, Al Gore and Joel Hyatt have been building their liberal cable news channel, Current TV, with the mercurial television anchorman Keith Olbermann at its center.
          This week, the center collapsed.
Current said on Friday afternoon that it had fired Mr. Olbermann—one of the nation’s most prominent progressive speakers—just a year into his five-year, $50 million contract. It was the culmination of months of murky disputes between Mr. Olbermann and the channel that he was supposed to save from the throes of ratings oblivion.

Business Insider reveals that a source familiar with the situation said Current decided to let Bathtub Boy go because he “did not respect the viewers of Current.”

The source added that Olbermann failed to show up for work without authorization, missing almost half of his working days in the months of January and February. Olbermann asked for a vacation day on March 5, the night before Super Tuesday, according to the source. He was told it would be a breach if he took the vacation, which Olbermann did.

Politico's Keach Hagey tweets that a source familiar with the firing says Olbermann was let go "for failing to show up to work, 'sabotaging the network' and attacking Current execs."

Having bungled his gigs at ESPN, MSNBC and now Current, it is painfully evident that Bathtub Boy is incapable of peacefully co-exiting with any media outlet. 

What lies ahead for poor Keef?  There’s OWN and Media Matters.  I think Media Matters would be the perfect place for him to land.  Meanwhile, all three two of his loyal viewers are gnashing their teeth and running around with their hair on fire.

What Obama Says When He Thinks You Aren’t Listening

Does this frighten you?  I’ll bet not as much as it does the Israelis, Poles, Czechs, South Koreans, Japanese and Brits

The exchange between Obama and Medvedev during the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea raised alarm from critics about Obama’s long-term commitment to the missile-defense system promoted as a shield to protect Europe from missile attacks by Iran. The Russians worry it's aimed at them and opposition to the missile shield was a major theme of Vladimir Putin’s presidential campaign.

Now we have irrefutable evidence that the errand boy sent by grocery clerks is the worst president EVER.

Newt Gingrich, GOP contender for president told CNN, “I’m curious, how many other countries has the president promised that he’d have a lot more flexibility the morning he doesn’t have to answer to the American people?”

House Speaker John Boehner, said "we look forward" to hearing what the president meant by "more flexibility" when he returns from South Korea.

By Monday afternoon, the Republican National Committee had cut a video ad with the subtitle, "What Obama tells world leaders when he thinks you aren't listening."

Santorum Swears At New York Times Reporter

According to an AP report appearing in The Washington Post, while GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum was speaking to an audience of supporters, he said that Romney is “uniquely disqualified” to be the GOP’s presidential pick and urged his supporters to stand with him even as he faces an increasingly improbable pathway to the nomination. Santorum said “the race isn’t over until the people of Wisconsin sing,” and urged them to give his underfunded, underdog campaign a chance to derail Romney.

Later, near Racine at an evening rally, he said, “Pick any other Republican in the country. He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.”

In an attempt to clarify his statement, his temper flared.

“On the issue of health care. That’s what I was talking about, and I was very clear about talking about that. OK?” Santorum told reporters who asked him about the scathing criticism. “Come on, guys, don’t do this. I mean, you guys are incredible. I was talking about Obamacare, and he is the worst because he was the author of Romneycare.”

Pressed by a reporter from The New York Times, Santorum said: “Quit distorting my words. It’s bulls---.”
Am I the only one who sees the scorching irony in the Drudge Report screencap where Santorum is pictured with fire-breathing pastor Dennis Terry at a Baton Rouge revival nodding in reverence?  Or his devotion to his faith and the need to swear?

If this man hopes to be the leader of the free world he must (1) get a handle on his temper, (2) remember that the Office of the President requires that he embody dignity and (3) must not let the media play him like a cheap fiddle.

He is letting the mainstream media set the narrative and that is political suicide.

Prediction: The Heels Will Clip The Jayhawks’ Wings

Tip off at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis is set for 5:05PM in the Midwest Regional Finals where the KU Jayhawks will face the North Carolina Tarheels.

The matchup analysis favors Carolina’s defense.  Kansas is given the offensive and overall edge in the game.

Let’s remember that the 30-6 Jayhawks barely squeaked by the Boilermakers of Purdue and the NC State Wolfpack in the last two rounds of the tourney.

Carolina’s point guard, Kendall Marshall, won’t take the floor today according to the latest update on his injured wrist.  That means that Stilman White will be pressed into action.  Against Ohio in Friday’s game, he played 32 minutes and had six assists and zero turnovers.

This will be the first time Kansas and North Carolina have played since the 2008 Final Four, when KU jumped out to a 40-12 lead and eventually won 84-66.

North Carolina won the national title in 2005 and again in 2009, and is in the regional finals for the sixth time under Coach Roy Williams. The Tar Heels are a No. 1 seed for a record 14th time.

Both teams had difficulty getting to this point, but Coach Williams has a point to prove.

As a die-hard Duke fan, I’m rooting for the Heels.  Based on mascots alone, Ramses is waaaaay tougher than some damn blue bird.  SRSLY.

Go Heels

UPDATE 7:08PM:  Congratulations to all you Jayhawks fans.  You won a gritty game against Carolina 80-67.  Best of luck to Kansas in the Final Four in New Orleans.

Oh, and hey, Heels fans, you lost the ACC Title and you came up empty in the NCAA Tourney. I love it.  See you on the court in the fall.  Go Duke.

White House Silent On Second Anniversary Of ObamaCare Scam

March 23, 2012 marked the second anniversary of ObamaCare, but there were no celebrations at the White House marking President Obama’s signature accomplishment.

Instead, the White House is hawking a potty-mouth T-shirt for 30 bucks that refers to Joe Biden’s vulgar whisper in the president’s ear, and caught on tape, calling the Affordable Care Act a “big f—king deal.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave a sarcastic poke in the eye saying, “I saw the president down at the White House.  I’m a little surprised, but there wasn’t a birthday cake to celebrate the second anniversary of ObamaCare."

That’s not a new necklace the president is wearing.  It’s a political albatross around his neck.  This regime awaits the high stakes hearings on the constitutionality of the law by the Supreme Court beginning March 26.

The next day, March 27th, will be devoted to arguments involving the administration's claim that not buying insurance somehow constitutes interstate commerce that may be regulated by Congress. 

The 28th will be devoted to the commandeering and severability issues.  The Democrats, you will recall, failed to include a severability clause in Obamacare. This, in theory, means that the Court must invalidate the entire law if it strikes down the mandate. If the justices follow the example of U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson, PPACA is toast. Unfortunately, the precedents aren't as clear on this issue as one might wish. The justices have demonstrated a willingness to ignore the absence of severability language when it suits them.

Charles Krauthammer’s Op-Ed in The Washington Post sums up ObamaCare nicely:  “Rarely has one law so exemplified the worst of the Leviathan state—grotesque cost, questionable constitutionality and arbitrary bureaucratic coerciveness. Little wonder the president barely mentioned it in his latest State of the Union address. He wants to be reelected. He’d rather talk about other things.”

“But there’s no escaping it now. Oral arguments begin Monday at 10 a.m.”

Oh, and just for shits and giggles, the #ILikeObamaCare hashtag launched by President Whiny’s re-election campaign was hijacked by conservatives.  The Daily Caller dutifully notes, “The Twitter hashtag was the most popular in the world Friday afternoon, but not for reasons the Obama campaign wanted.” 

Yeah.  I bet.

Maher's Attacks

Re: “Please Stop Apologizing,” by Bill Maher (Op-Ed, March 22):

We’re both women who have worked in Democratic politics and the media for decades and find Bill Maher’s misogynist treatment of women candidates deeply disturbing. Coincidentally we both hail from Alaska—where women are treated as equals—so perhaps our threshold for this kind of behavior is less than here in the Lower 48.

Mr. Maher has implicitly attempted to tie his own demeaning attacks on women to the unrelated issue of partisan-motivated fake outrage, which we agree is tiring. While others have been held to account for their sexism, Mr. Maher remains unrepentant for his attacks on women in public life.

How can we expect women to run for office when they are essentially told to “lighten up about” and accept misogynist attacks? The Women’s Media Center has found that such attacks on women candidates have a measurable negative effect on how voters view them.

Our message to Mr. Maher and his ilk is: Please start apologizing.

Right Jabs For March 24, 2012

Herewith, all the news that's fit to link from conservative blogger friends.  Enjoy.

Once you've heard one Obama speech on oil, you've heard them all

Apparently, it doesn’t pay to be a drummer at Occupy Maine.

The eternal sunshine of the spotless memory hole.

Check closely.  A man and his dog.

When King Hussein Obama demands courtesy, you’d better give it to him.

The great oil flim-flam.

they suddenly awake to find they have communism.

President Obama’s willingness to falsify the facts about a personal tragedy in order to make a political point speaks volumes about not only his cynicism but also his character. 

keep in mind that I’m a comedian when I call your mother a whore.

…because what Maher decries is their very reason for existence.

Immelt’s conversion from public Obama supporter to a private detractor is important: It shows how even businessmen who feast off his subsidies worry about his overall economic agenda and its long-term impact on the economy.

Hundreds died in a plot that appears to have been designed to impose gun control. It’s past time for the appointment of an independent prosecutor, and to press for criminal charges against those responsible for the carnage that has resulted from the deadliest scandal in U.S. government history.

I think I’ve probably heard about the stupidest thing this election cycle in an election cycle that’s been wrought with stupidity.

Imagine all the things government planners cannot anticipate when, in their defining hubris, they try to impose their static dream of the “right kind” of future.

Once a slug, always a slug, silky pony...

 …but still the Syrian people loved this very modern woman, slim with a great sense of style and never seen in a burqa. 

It's so pathetic, I found myself thinking, it's genuinely dumb-ugly and beyond his girlfriend, if he has one, and his parents, who would read such nonsense?

I tuned in mostly to stare at it in utter effing disbelief. You know, if anybody on the whole planet but beloved token Bill Cosby had made a cartoon about a group of ugly, stupid poor black children in the ghetto, he’d've been run out of town on a banjo.

The fight for freedom never ends.

 “If you’re not prepared to go to jail to stand up for your freedoms, you don’t understand what this election is about.”

”Just the other night my wife came to me on her hands and knees."

His clowning achievement.

So President Obama is apparently endorsing this as something appropriate for a president to peddle...

A fairly raucous hash tag game broke out on Twitter.

Obama’s Chevy Go-Cart has a hard time staying on the road.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

Isn’t it racist to talk about a black guy “evolving?”

We can fix this on our terms, while we still control our destiny, or we can wait until we are like the decrepit Soviet Union or today’s Greece, sold into penury and helplessly prostrate before the international bankers and enemy nations eager for our humiliating comeuppance.

President Obama’s emotional siding with Trayvon Martin in the Rose Garden Friday, hailed by some as a moment of leadership on race relations, is an egregious abnegation of duty that could help lead to race riots and further deaths.

People who read the Constitution are a threat to the people who trample on the Constitution.

Enjoy your weekend.  Stay safe out there and please come back.

Speak No Evil

Allahpundit begins his post over at Hot Air with this line: “Faced with the reality that his chances have collapsed, the Sweater Vest begins to unravel.”

I haven’t yet weighed in on who I’d vote for in this presidential primary cycle.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  Prior to the Iowa Caucuses, my support was going to Thad McCotter.

Thad McCotter wasn’t allowed to participate in the Fox News/Washington Examiner Iowa Republican Party debate. Criteria for inclusion in the debate did not allow several other candidates, or potential candidates, to participate in the debate, including Buddy Roemer and Fred Karger who did not meet the polling criterion of at least 1% in 5 national polls.

Shortly after the debate in Ames, Iowa Thad dropped out of the race saying in an interview with The Detroit News that, "If they keep you out of the debates, you are out of the conversation, and you can't run. It was sort of death by media."

It is my considered opinion that if McCotter had been in the Ames debate that the GOP political landscape would look very different today and for the better.  But that’s a discussion for another day.

On Thursday, March 22, 2012 Rick Santorum uttered something unbelievably reckless:

“You win by giving people a choice,” Santorum said during a campaign stop in Texas. “You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who’s just going to be a little different than the person in there.”

Santorum added: “If they’re going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk of what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate for the future.”

Many of my blogger friends have come out strongly for Rick Santorum.  I had chosen to wait and watch.  I’ve waited long enough.

Despite the protestations of Erick Erickson of Red State who opined, “Much hay is being made of Rick Santorum saying he’d prefer Obama to Romney. Except that is not what he said or what he meant. Certainly he could have had a clarifying clause in his statement, but given the context, I think he was saying no more and no less than what I have been saying.”

Erick, he said, “…we may as well stay with what we have…”  Even the most rudimentary student of the English language or PoliSci 101 knows the inference was to vote to give the errand boy sent by grocery clerks a second term.

Then there’s Stacy McCain who jumped on the Santorum bandwagon after Herman Cain bowed out of the race following his unfortunate bimbo eruption.  No more stalwart supporter can be found in the dextrosphere.

Stacy posted his thoughts saying, “Santorum was making the same argument Phyllis Schlafly made in her 1964 classic, A Choice Not an Echo. He is saying something he has said many times—and something Newt Gingrich has also said—that Romney fails to offer a clear contrast to Obama. In this context, when Santorum said ‘we might as well stay with what we have,’ he clearly meant to express what the reaction of regular voters would be, if presented with someone who is just ‘a little different’ than the incumbent.  Santorum did not express himself clearly, but awkwardness of expression is not the same as endorsing Barack Obama’s re-election.”

Erickson and McCain both agree that Santorum was, shall we say, inarticulate.  I believe it goes much deeper.

Whoever the next president is, will appoint up to three Supreme Court Justices during his term. Those appointments are for life.  “Staying with what we have” means that Obama will appoint liberal justices who will be activists who could, potentially, increase the threats to the rule of law and further infringe upon our liberty.

During a September 2001 Chicago public radio program that aired on Chicago’s WBEZ-FM on September 6, 2001, titled “Slavery and the Constitution”, then Illinois State Senator Barack Obama said, “I think we can say that the Constitution reflected an enormous blind spot in this culture that carries on until this day, and that the Framers had that same blind spot. I don’t think the two views are contradictory, to say that it was a remarkable political document that paved the way for where we are now, and to say that it also reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day.”

Another point to be made is that the Democrats took solid control of the Senate and the House in 2006.  Their progressive agenda, along with squishy Republicans is what put this country on its knees.

A clear message was sent to the Houses of Congress in the 2010 election via the Tea Party Movement.  It takes time to sever the tentacles of the monster that has held our government hostage for the past six years.

If Romney does become the nominee at the GOP convention in Tampa, we must coalesce behind him.

I find that Rick Santorum is easily led astray by the Left’s taunting of him.  He lacks focus.  He spends too much time with long knives out for his rivals and not enough time attacking the real problem—the current occupant of the Oval Office—a man who is committed to the radical transformation of the country we love.

Four more years will only make the community organizer bolder and brasher and more narcissistic.

Santorum made an egregious mistake uttering those words and I join Jeff Dunetz of Yid With Lid, who today, has withdrawn his support.

Dunetz writes, “Yesterday, Rick Santorum showed himself too immature to be President of the United States.”

He continues, “I am sure Santorum will try and walk back the statement but is too late, the damage has been done.  Rick Santorum committed the ultimate sin for a 2012 GOP candidate—saying Barack Obama would be preferred over his opponents. This was hyperbole, which is both false and irresponsible.”

“Barack Obama represents the biggest threat to individual freedom in my lifetime (Joe Biden might even say in the past 500 years). Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney would be far superior to Barack Obama. With his suggestion to the contrary, Santorum proves himself to be less than ready to handle the job.”

Santorum’s recklessness in the heat of battle is also a clear indicator that he is not ready for prime time.

UPDATE:  On Friday’s edition of Your World, Neil Cavuto said, “A lot of folks think you committed political suicide.” Santorum replied, “Neil, this is just laughable…the highest priority in this country is to defeat Barack Obama. And, what I was saying there was, if we don’t have a choice, then the American public may decide to keep Barack Obama, that’s all I said.”

In the video embedded below, Santorum sounds pathetic and panicky as he attempts to walk back his disastrous comment.

Paul Harvey: “If I Were The Devil” (Warning For A Nation)

“If I Were The Devil” was an essay popularized by syndicated columnist Paul Harvey.  The oldest known version of his essay dates back to 1964.

“If I were the devil, I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree—Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first—I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: ‘Do as you please.’

“To the young, I would whisper, ‘The Bible is a myth.’ I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is ‘square.’ And the old, I would teach to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington.’

“And then I’d get organized. I’d educate authors on how to lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

“If I were the devil I’d soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves and nations at war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames. If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions—just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

“Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography—soon I could evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

“If I were the devil I’d take from those who have, and give to those wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. What do you bet I could get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich? I would caution against extremes and hard work, and patriotism, and moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun, that what you see on TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words, if I were the devil I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing. Paul Harvey, good day.”

Obama’s XL Pipeline Etch A Sketch: The Knobs Do Nothing

In a March 22, 2012 Gallup Poll, asked as part of its annual Environment Survey, 57% of Americans approve of construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.  Forty-four percent of Democrats and 51% of independents approve as well.  That polling information is the chief reason for the current occupier of the Oval Office to “shake up” his XL pipeline decision.

In an “etch a sketch” moment of his own, the errand boy sent by grocery clerks announced that he would speed up the permit process for the southern section of the pipeline—just in time for the presidential election.  No obvious political expediency in evidence here.  Meh.

Rep. John Sullivan (R-Okla.) says when Obama stands in Cushing for his photo-op that he’s pulling a fast one on Americans.
In an interview with KJRH, Sullivan, Chairman of the House Energy and Power Subcommittee, said, “President Obama claiming credit for speeding up the Keystone pipeline is like Al Gore saying he invented the Internet—it is claiming credit where credit isn't due. This is clearly an attempt to deflect attention from $4 gas and his failed energy policies, and Oklahomans won't buy it.  The southern portion of Keystone XL doesn’t cross international lines and doesn’t need presidential approval.  In fact, this administration has done everything in their power to delay the Keystone process—just last week the President personally lobbied members of Congress to vote against it,” Sullivan stated.

“Simply put, the southern portion of keystone—from Cushing, OK to the Gulf Coast—is being built in spite of the Obama Administration, not because of them.  This portion of the pipeline does require numerous permits, but those come from state authorities, army corps of engineers and fish and wildlife services, not the president,” he concluded.

Here’s an excerpt of an Op-Ed which appears in today’s The Oklahoman:

"Forgive us, sir, if we don’t share your grudging acceptance of fossil fuel as some “temporary” alternative to the energy sources you prefer. It’s not that we dislike wind power. Lord knows we have plenty of wind. Suburban Oklahomans have embraced wind for their electricity, just as their homesteading ancestors embraced windmills on treeless plains. The head of a national wind energy trade association is a former member of the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, which regulates the oil and gas industry."

"She loves wind power. But she also gets the criticality of hydrocarbons. Do you?"

"Mr. President, it’s not that we don’t want a bridge to a future that doesn’t rely on imported oil. In fact, we think a key truss on that bridge is a fossil fuel called natural gas. We have lots of it, but your administration seems keen on restricting its exploration."

"In the town that fossil fuel built, we don’t feel trapped in the past, as you put it the other day. We not flat earthers. We’re deep earthers. We don’t cling to our rotary rigs or nodding donkeys (pumpjacks). We recognize their necessity."

"State Rep. Lee Denney, who represents the area you’ll visit in Cushing, notes that a future without oil and gas exists only in your head, not in reality."

"So demagogue all you want about under-taxed oil barons. Just remember that you didn’t arrive here on a solar-powered aircraft. What flows in and out of the Pipeline Crossroads of the World is oil. Getting it to Cushing is expensive and risky."

"Eighty-two years ago, on March 26, 1930, the rumbling at a drilling rig in southeast Oklahoma City turned to a roar. Terrified roughnecks fled when high-pressure natural gas sent pipes and rocks into the air. It took 11 days to tame the Wild Mary Sudik well. But tame it we did."

"Eight decades later we’re still taming hydrocarbons around here, in the town that fossil fuel built."

Saving Private Focker

It seems two Hollywood superstars have stepped in a sizeable pile of muck; Tom Hanks eight years ago at a fundraising auction for St. Matthew’s Parish School and Robert De Niro, just this week, at a Democratic fundraiser.

Both actors are in full damage control mode.

During the video unearthed by The Daily Caller, Hanks is seen onstage with an investment banker in a blackface skit and is heard saying, “Oh jeez…Ladies and gentlemen, a celebrity in our midst!  Who would have thought that Bill O’Reilly would join us?”

The shitstorm that followed prompted Hanks to offer an apology.  “In 2004, I was blindsided when one of the parents got up on the stage in a costume that was hideously offensive then and is hideously offensive now.  What is usually a night of food and drink for a good cause was, regrettably, marred by an appalling few moments.”

In addressing the issue more fully to The Daily Caller, our boy Tom, offered a belated apology to O’Reilly saying, "I used Bill O'Reilly as the punch line of an uncomfortable joke that was hardly funny and [was] unfair.  I have no reason to think Mr. O'Reilly would have found both the reason for the joke nor my use of it funny in any way."

In another example of Leftist raaaaacism, Robert De Niro on Wednesday, apologized for joking at a Democratic fundraiser with Michelle Obama about the possibility of having a "white first lady" at the White House after November's presidential elections. 

The Oscar-winning star of "The Godfather: Part II" and "Raging Bull" said he had intended no offense with the remark about the wives of Republican presidential contenders Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney.

He opened the fundraiser saying, “Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?”

According to the report, the crowd of $5,000-a-plate donors waiting to hear from the nation’s first black first lady roared in approval, and De Niro finished: “Too soon, right?”

De Niro’s “the devil made me do it” statement:  "My remarks, although spoken with satirical jest, were not meant to offend or embarrass anyone—especially the first lady.”

So, my Photoshop™ software, having a mind of its own, whipped up this graphic of two stupid Hollywood idiots.  I would apologize for it, but why should I?  It was satirical jesting and it is meant to embarrass these towering examples of stupidity and Lefty raaaaacism.

Stupid is as stupid does.

And That’s Why He Won’t Be On Mount Rushmore

Mark Steyn was interested in the rest of the “yukfest of history’s biggest idiots” by the current occupant of The Oval Office.

He notes that many of the zingers sounded as though they had been swiped from one of those “Top Twenty Useful Quotes for Forward-Looking Inspirational Speakers” and from Wikiquotes.

President Pantload said, “There always have been folks who are the naysayers and don’t believe in the future, and don’t believe in trying to do things differently. One of my predecessors, Rutherford B. Hayes, reportedly said about the telephone, ‘It’s a great invention, but who would ever want to use one?’ That’s why he’s not on Mount Rushmore—because he’s looking backwards. He’s not looking forwards. He’s explaining why we can’t do something, instead of why we can do something.”

Nan Card, Curator of Manuscripts at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center, quickly put the kibosh on TPM by informing them that President Hayes had the first telephone in the White House, and the first typewriter, and Edison visited him to demonstrate the phonograph.

So the errand boy sent by grocery clerks may have gotten a room full of chuckles from the blissfully ignorant audience, but the citation about President Hayes was bullshit a lie.

Steyn writes, "A great nation needs successful self-made businessmen and purveyors of scholarly excellence. It’s not clear why it needs a smug over-credentialed President Solyndra to recycle Crowd-Pleasing for Dummies as a keynote address."

They all laughed at Christopher Columbus, they all laughed at Edison and Steyn believes that history will laugh at us for ever taking this president seriously.

Amen, brother Steyn, amen.

Right Jabs For March 17, 2012

All the news that's fit to link from conservative blogger friends.  Enjoy.

Another Obama BFF who just happens to be a big, fat, low-class pig.  A shocker, I know.

These days it’s not often that you see a member of the Despairing Classes being seduced by classic Communism on a city street, but it does happen.

…four years of non-stop rutting in Sarah Palin’s uterus…

The man reads from his teleprompter like a pro but has little of import to say, lies shamelessly, uses eighth-grade language, leans heavily toward long-windedness, and stumbles over his own tongue like a stroke victim.

Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em.  And, no, this is not a prompt to get you to put down those filthy coffin nails.

The half-solved problem according to Yoda.

Morticia Addams, looking worse than the Cryptkeeper, announces the return to the Dark Ages.

People with full frontal lobotomies can still cry?

Beloved around the world for his unique unicorn taming abilities and Nobel-Peace-prize-winning-management and launching of several wars is not as quite beloved as we were lead to believe.  Hey, can you say “flambé”?

A productive member of society with some thoughts on St. Patrick’s Day.

"I'm very leery of ethnic jokes in my position; the only ones I can tell are Irish!"  Must see video of the classiest president this nation has ever had.

Arlen Sphincter, duplicitous rat bastard, continues to rot in retirement.

“Don’t tell me words don’t matter,” Obama once said. And he was right. Words do matter. The words of his mentors that have rooted hate so deep in the black community that it has become a cancer, a sore that bleeds violence, a stain on the soul.

Mark Zuckerberg, Director of CIA’s Facebook ProgramCAUTION:  political parody by The Onion.

One trick pony that is clearly full of shit.

This one’s for Andrew.

Pioneering beering. 

Obama shill flummoxed by criticism from another Obama shill.
