Build Me Up Buttercup, Republicans Are NUTS!

I have "Build Me Up Buttercup" stuck in my head and I think I figured it out.

President Obama is coming to Redwood City today (and I am fleeing, heading to Seattle to cover tomorrow's Amazon shareholder meeting.) Look at the marquee at the downtown Fox Theater:

005.JPG

ABBA THE CONCERT

PRESIDENT OBAMA

AIR SUPPLY

So I was thinking, is he going to perform "Waterloo"? And so I got Waterloo stuck in my head:


But then I realized, this is the same song as Build Me Up Buttercup!


And that put Build Me Up Buttercup in my head. I can't get it out.

And THAT made me realize that something is going on -- I think the right wingers are blasting the vicinity with secret frequencies, that are affecting people's THOUGHTS!


But I have the solution:


Here Is The Problem

That was fun. The problem is that I'm having fun, but this crazy and paranoid is the starting point of the current Republican party!

Crazy: WSJ: Obama's Place of Birth a Ballot Issue in Arizona,

The issue of President Barack Obama's place of birth, which had largely faded from national view, is flaring up in Arizona after its secretary of state last week said Mr. Obama might not be on the November ballot there if Hawaii doesn't verify it has his birth certificate.

Paranoid: Paul Krugman, Paranoia Strikes Deeper,

Finally, there’s the paranoia, the belief that liberals in general, and Obama administration officials in particular, are trying to make driving unaffordable as part of a nefarious plot against the American way of life. And, no, I’m not exaggerating. This is what you hear even from thoroughly mainstream conservatives.

... In fact, the conspiracy theories are proliferating so fast it’s hard to keep up. Thus, large numbers of Republicans — and we’re talking about important political figures, not random supporters — firmly believe that global warming is a gigantic hoax perpetrated by a global conspiracy involving thousands of scientists, not one of whom has broken the code of omertà. Meanwhile, others are attributing the recent improvement in economic news to a dastardly plot to withhold stimulus funds, releasing them just before the 2012 election. And let’s not even get into health reform.

Work Hard, It Pays Off -- But Not For You

Please read the whole thing, it just nails what today's economy is about: All Of Area Man's Hard Work Finally Pays Off For Employer | The Onion,

Following seven straight years of long hours at the office and sacrificed weekends and holidays, all of account manager Sam Hemstead's hard work and single-minded devotion to Pinnacle Automotive Insurance has finally paid off for CEO Charles Pardahee, Pardahee said Friday.

... The stress-related physical and psychological tolls for Hemstead, 34, have been high, but the hypertension, weight-gain, and crippling migraine headaches he has suffered due to his rigorous work schedule have been worth the rewards he has reaped for his employer, Pardahee confirmed.

Goldfellas

For those who need some background: Goldman Sachs announces they plan to give out record bonuses this year, despite taking billions in TARP money from the Fed to "survive," soaring unemployment and companies collapsing coast-to-coast. In his memo, Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein tells his employees to keep a low profile and not to spend lavishly when they get their massive bonuses!

Comedian Matt Rittberg creates a hilarious spoof of "Goodfellas" based on Goldman Sachs outrageous compensation. Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman's CEO, sent out a memo recently telling his top employees not to buy anything flashy with their bonuses. Remind anyone else of the scene from Goodfellas where De Niro tells his gang the same thing after the big heist?

Death Panels Prove Barack Obama Murdered Vince Foster

The mystery is solved: Barack Obama murdered Vince Foster.

It should have been obvious all along. Of course Hillary could not have murdered Vince Foster in a secret "love nest" apartment. She had her agent Barack Obama do it for her. And Barack Obama put Vince Foster's body into the trunk of a car and drove it to the park where it was "found".

Barack Obama was also secretly smuggling cocaine from an airstrip in Arkansas. He held up traffic at the LA Airport while he got a $500 haircut. He fired the people in the Travel Office so he could give the job to a cousin. He sold plots in Arlington National Cemetery. He accepted secret money from China and transferred out nuclear secrets to the Chinese government.

Barack Obama betrayed us at Yalta.

Now Barack Hussein Obama is setting up Death Panels. This is the whole purpose, the culmination of the plan, the final chapter of health insurance reform, of killing Vince Foster, of smuggling cocaine and selling cemetery plots and taking over the travel office and selling nuclear secrets to China and engaging in the Whitewater scheme and shredding the Rose Law Firm files and crossing the border during the Korean War, and putting the microfilm in the pumpkin: It was, along with George Soros the Jew and other Hell-Demons, to finance the takeover so he could finally set up Death Panels across the country where the true American Patriots will be tried and summarily executed so that the Socialist Elders of the demon-gogs could ARISE and control our minds and sell our ports, and sap and impurify our precious bodily fluids, and put Big Government Labor Bosses over the Silent Majority when he hypnotized the weak from his Pergamon Altar Nazi Pulpit Greek columns in Denver! It is OBVIOS!

Barack Obama has a lot to answer for.

Ruining America

I think the two things that ruined America were:

1) Gerald Ford pardoning Richard Nixon. This told the country that the elite are above the law, no matter how serious the crimes. It separated people from their government.

2) When Bobby died on Dallas, and then a whole season went by, and then they brought him back and said the whole previous year had been a dream. This told the country that double-duty suspension of disbelief can work. This led to the massive budget deficits, the stock bubble, housing bubble, increased fossil fuel use, obesity crisis, not banning tobacco products, deforestation, trade deficits and debt.

A Call To Community

Christy at Firedoglake blogged about Obama's closing remarks to the Al Smith Dinner last night. Obama: Each Of Us Has The Responsibility Of Service In Our Communities, Especially Now. Please click through.
This video is the entire event, both McCain and Obama. Lots of great jokes. Obama's closing remarks are at 22:14:

Here is Christy's transcript of the closing remarks:

The fact that each October, in the closing weeks of a hard-fought campaign, people of all political persuasions can come to this dinner, and share a meal and honor the work of this foundation, underscores the reality that no matter what differences or divisions or arguments we are having right now -- we ultimately belong to something bigger and more lasting than a political party.

We belong to a community. We share a country. We are all children of God.

And in this country, there are millions of fellow citizens, our brothers and sisters, who need us very much. Especially now. We are being battered by a very serious economic storm, and for many Americans it's only deepened the quiet storms they've been struggling through for years.

Beyond the walls of this hotel, on the streets of one the greatest cities in the wealthiest nation on earth, there are men and women and children who've fallen on hard times and hard luck. Who can't find work or even a job that pays enough to keep a roof over their heads. Some are hanging on just by a thread.

Scripture says God creates us for works of service. We are blessed to have so many organizations like this one, in the Catholic diocese that perform these acts of God every day. But each of us also have that responsibility. Each of us has that obligation. Especially now.

So, no matter who we are or what we do -- and what I believe is each of us in this room asks for, and hopes for and prays for enough strength and wisdom to do good and to seek justice, and play our small part in building a more hopeful and compassionate world for the generations that will follow.

Before Al Smith was a candidate who made history, he was a man who made a difference. A man who fought for many years to give Americans nothing more than a fair shake and a chance to succeed. And he touched the lives of hundreds of thousands, of millions as a result. Simply put, he helped people. And that's a distinction we can all aspire to. And we can all achieve.

Young or old, rich or poor, Democrat or Republican or Independent. And I have no doubt if we come together at this moment of crisis with this goal in mind, America will meet this challenge and weather this storm. And, in the words of Al Smith, "walk once more in eternal sunshine."

Republican Party Hired To Sell Product For Oil Companies

The Republican Party's hiring itself out to the oil industry for this coordinated "Drill Now" campaign reminds me of an old joke. (I'll shorten it.)

Kentucky Fried Chicken comes to the Pope and says, "We'll give you $500,000 a year to change the Lord's Prayer to 'give us this day our daily fried chicken'." The Pope says, "No way." Then they offer $1 million. The Pope gives a long spiel about this is a sacred prayer, from God, etc. They give their final offer: $10 million a year.

The next day the Pope meets with his Cardinals and says, "The good news is I have brought us $10 million a year."

"The bad news is I lost the Wonder Bread account."

The other day I wrote,

This is a political party involving itself in a corporate product marketing campaign, for money. This "drill now" campaign is funded by oil companies, and is about giving them even more special government favors. It isn't a lot different from changing a stadium's name to "Enron Stadium" or Pac Bell park" etc.
This political campaign is in conjunction with an oil industry PR campaign to try to get the government to hand them even more drilling leases than the millions of acres they already have (and sit on without drilling). It came just as oil prices peaked and suggests that oil prices peaked in order to prime the public for this campaign.
Your modern Republicans -- A political party reduced to hiring itself out to sell product!

Stock Market

A couple of days ago I turned on CNBC to see what was happening on the stock market. About two minutes after I turned on the TV the market started dropping, and quickly dropped almost 100 points.

Today the market was down, recovered, and I turned on the TV to see what was going on. About a minute after I turned it on it started dropping again, wnd in five minutes was down about 50 points.

So here is my offer: $100,000.

For $100,000 I will give you private, advance warning before I turn on CNBC. Let me know.

But wait, there's more!

For an additional $100,000 I will tell you when I am about to buy a stock. There is no greater assurance that a stock will immediately lose half of its value than my purchasing that stock.

But wait, there's more!

If you place your order today, as a bonus gift I will also tell you when I am about to sell a stock! This is an extremely powerful tool! There is almost a 100% correlation between my selling a stock, and that stock recovering entirely to its yearly high, and continuing to rise to establish a new all-time high.

Hurry, this offer is only valid today.

BONUS OFFER -- I turned OFF CNBC and the stock market went from -225 to +6 in ten minutes.

Update - I turned it back on to see WTF? and it started dropping immediately, and is now down over 150 points again. So there is no doubt that I am responsible for all of this. My price just went up to $200,000.

On a serious note - this is entirely about rumors that the Fed is going to bail out more of the "too big to fail" crowd. Do you really want to be in a stock market that is held up only by rumors of who the government is going to bail out next? That's not a solid economic foundation for my investments.

A Good Laugh

If you want a good laugh and have a strong stomach go read the 2004 Republican Party Platform (NOTE - PDF document).

It really was just a collection of lies and misdirections. Really, read it with the hindsight of today to learn how this crowd uses propaganda to manipulate people.

See if you can count how many times it links Iraq with 9/11. It also says we invaded Iraq because they "refused to disarm."

Mail I Get - Subprime Crisis Hits Japan

This came in the mail just now:

Sub-Prime Rate Problems hit Japan

Following the problems in the sub-prime lending market in America and the run on Northern Rock in the UK, uncertainty has now hit Japan.

In the last 7 days

* Origami Bank has folded,

* Sumo Bank has gone belly up and

* Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches.

Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.

Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, and Ninja Bank are reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black.

Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal.

Ouch.

Huckabee - Heh

It's hard to dislike this guy. Watch this:

And read this GREAT column today from David Sirota,

Stay Classy, Mike Huckabee
[. . .]
Recall that the media portrays Bush's alliance with the religious right as proof of his convictions. Huckabee's alliance with the same religious right is subtly cast as a sign of supposed ignorance. Bush's rhetorical gaffes are often painted as endearing — evidence that despite his silver-spoon pedigree, he is the authentic "average American man" thinking "in a common-sense way," as Republican commentator Peggy Noonan wrote. Huckabee? The Weekly Standard calls him "a village idiot" and a "rube," while Noonan derides him for "populist manipulation."

Bush, you see, was always an aristocrat underneath the "windshield cowboy" veneer. He is the son of a president, a Skull-and-Bones man — ruling class all the way.

Huckabee, on the other hand, is a real-life regular guy. He views religion as more than just a convenient political cudgel, truly did pull himself "up from the bootstraps" — and his class grievances are personal. The well-heeled narcissists in the media and political Establishment are appalled. They see Huckabee as a country bumpkin getting uppity.

AND, is this ad brilliant, or what?

Democrats, you'd better be ready for what's coming. This is another Ronald Reagan. If we don't start stating progressive VALUES and the BENEFITS of progressive values, we're toast. No more lists of issues, like you're trying to buy groceries, please.

"Bunch Dumbasses" Poetry Slam

The other day the Drudge Report linked to Seeing the Forest, which prompted this e-mail:

Subject line: the fairness doctring

you liberal are such hypocrits, you can't win the debate so you have to make laws to stop it. i guees Hugo Chaves would be proud. you liberals all pieces of shit who should be hung for treason. thank God we have republicans that love this country. you bunch dumbasses.

Now the "bunch dumbass" comments are rolling in - and it is becoming poetic.

I received an e-mail asking if I really do "bunch dumbasses?"

So I propose a "bunch dumbasses" poetry/haiku contest. Entrants so far:

Time flies like an arrow, then bunch dumbasses.
There once was a wingnut named Dumbass
whose nickname was probably "Thumb-ass."
He couldn't read right
and the comments he'd write
show his reasoning skills were a morass.

Big Duh

Here's a big "Duh!" Key to a good marriage? Share housework.:

The percentage of Americans who consider children "very important" to a successful marriage has dropped sharply since 1990, and more now cite the sharing of household chores as pivotal, according to a sweeping new survey.

[. . .] The survey also found that, by a margin of nearly 3-to-1, Americans say the main purpose of marriage is the "mutual happiness and fulfillment" of adults rather than the "bearing and raising of children."

Bush Crazification Strategies

Kevin Drum linked to this, and it's still great, so I'll link to it, too: Kung Fu Monkey: Lunch Discussions #145: The Crazification Factor

Too funny to excerpt, just go read it.

OK, one part explains why Bush can't go lower than 27% in the polls,

Obama vs. Alan Keyes. Keyes was from out of state, so you can eliminate any established political base; both candidates were black, so you can factor out racism; and Keyes was plainly, obviously, completely crazy. Batshit crazy. Head-trauma crazy. But 27% of the population of Illinois voted for him. They put party identification, personal prejudice, whatever ahead of rational judgement. Hell, even like 5% of Democrats voted for him. That's crazy behaviour. I think you have to assume a 27% Crazification Factor in any population.

I think the fashion industry is a good analogy for the out-of-touch pundit and political insider class. Take a look at what the insiders think we're supposed to look like. It really does resemble what the Washington Conventional Wisdom crowd wants us to think like.

Tomorrow's The Big 666 -- Wingnuts Going ...Well ... NUTS!!!!

Wingnuts are going ... well... NUTS, because tomorrow is the dreaded 666 day!!! 6/6/06!!!!

Drudge is hilighting that the 30-year mortgage rate is at 6.66%.

But wait, there's MORE!!! MUCH more!!!

If you count the letters in "Ronald Wilson Reagan" it's 666!!!!! When Reagan retired he moved to 666 Cloud Road!!! And Ronald Wilson Reagan is an anagram!!!!! If you rearrange all the letters you get: INSANE ANGLO WARLORD!!!!!

And there are even more signs, sure signs,

We are declining in terms of baptisms (down 4 percent last year), declining in terms of investment through the Cooperative Program (down from 10.6 percent to 6.66 percent since 1984).
Another sure sign, On Fox, Coulter plugged 6-6-6 release of new book attacking liberals as "godless".

The signs are showing up everywhere:

And fiscal year to date, the airport has handled 6.66 billion pounds of cargo, up 1.84 percent from the same period last fiscal year.
And here:
The corresponding millage increase would be 6.66 mills, according to Dickl, which the board then passed in a 5-4 vote.
6.66 MILLS??? A TAX??? !!! SURELY the devil is involved!!! And there is ever more:
Blanton was 0-5 with a 6.66 ERA...
ERA - cleverly planted by LLLLiberals to make you think of the Hellish Equal Rights Aendment!! And more:
Turkey paid USD 666 million for oil imports in March 2005.
And so many more -- the vaccine that the right-wingers are trying to ban because it prevents cervical cancer,
In a Phase III study, 666 women aged 15 to 55 were vaccinated with Ceravix. After a month of treatment, all women showed antibody response against type 16 and type 18 human papillomavirus, strains of the virus that are associated with cervical cancer
It just doesn't stop coming at us:
SFR's quarterly earnings from operations rose by 11.0% to EUR 666
million.
EUROS???!!!!!

This news story says,

...LG Telecom, which had 6.66 million users by April...
And this one,
Goldman Sachs's fund management unit was among sellers of Tyco stock during the quarter, disposing of 9 million shares to reduce its position to 6.66 million.
Goldman? Didn't BUSH just pick someone from Goldman to be Treasury Secretary???? Isn't that where the MONEY is????? And isn't Goldman a JEWISH name??? !!!!

But now, here comes the big one, the real shocker:

It might SEEM that counting the letters in "George Walker Bush" gives you 664, BUT THEY CHANGED THE NAME FROM BUSCHE!!!!! HE'S THE DEVIL!!! (I've wanted to start that rumor for years...)

Pay no attention to the towels atop the heads or the box cutters in the pockets of these fine gentlemen.

Unlike Islam, Christianity and Judaism do not preach taqiyah (deception of Infidels and non-believers). And they don't send people to scout out the possibility of attacks on school buses or airplanes.

We keep letting these @$$holes in... It's just a matter of time before they get us.
--
Picture of WTC burning
--
Terrorists are already among us. Let’s deal with questionable people in a consistent and forceful way. Step out of line while on a student visa, and you’re gone. Any other policy leaves us vulnerable. Can we be sure that the quota system from Saudi Arabia for students is not a conduit by which future terrorists can better understand their enemy?
--
...this is more likely a test run for a Beslan-type scenario.
--
We have plenty of reason to be concerned about possible terrorism operatives in south Florida.
--
Nope. These two don’t fit any profile for potential terrorists. ... Yeeeeeeah. Pull the other one, Ahmed. ... Nope. No reason to even REMOTELY suspect that they might have ties to the Jumpin’ Jihadis™.
---
This incident has all the hallmarks of a terrorist rehearsal. A full dress rehearsal in fact–checking access, routes, and reactions.
---
Was this deliberate to show how easy it is for possible 'illegals up to no good' to have access to America's children? I wonder.... above are their photos.
--
What if they were to memorize the identities of the students and then start stalking them? ... This is not good, because there's every chance that any of these students could be terrorist moles.
TERRORISTS!!!!!

I've said before that when I try to talk about the stuff that the Republicans are up to, to people who don't really follow the news, they think I'M the crazy person!

My wife and I share a house with a roommate who doesn't really follow the news. Today I told him that last week the Vice President of the United States shot a man in the face with a shotgun, and blamed the guy he shot, and then when he got out of the hospital the guy apologized for the pain he had caused the VP -- and then this week the President of the United States allowed our ports to be sold to a company owned by the government of the United Arab Emirates.

Butch - An E-mail I Received

An e-mail I received: (blame the sender, not me)

BUTCH THE ROOSTER

John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called pullets and eight or ten roosters, whose job was to fertilize the eggs.

The farmer kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced.

That took an awful lot of his time so he bought a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone so John could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.

The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch, a very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning John noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all!

John went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover. But to Farmer John's amazement, Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

John was so proud of Butch, he entered him in the county fair and Butch became an overnight sensation among the judges. The result...The judges not only awarded Butch the "No Bell Piece Prize" but they also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well. Clearly Butch was a Republican in the making. Who else but a Republican could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.

I report, you groan.

Fresh Google search terms to confound Dubya and the FBI.

Mark Morford's latest column, entitled: Horse Sex Porn Candy Teens!, asks the question: "Is Bush a fascist?" (evidence would seem to indicate so; as Mark points out, Bush "has slapped his color-crayon signature on over 500 signing statements so far, reserving his right to disregard the law more times than all former American presidents combined." Read the column for the ultimate irony re: this subject.)

He also suggests that we type in the following search terms, in an effort to confound the Justice Department's attempt to revive COPA (the Child Online Protection Act)... which is the biggest joke imaginable; do you have a child between the ages of 8 and 13? do they have access to chat, etc. on NeoPets? are they on MySpace? are they on AIM or Yahoo Messenger? I bet they are. ... and I bet you've never signed any sort of permission form. In my view, COPA actually accomplishes exactly the opposite: all those kids are busy lying about their age right and left, pretending to be 14, 15, 17, 19, 24, or even 30... and interacting with folks who are really that age... this has the perverse effect of further accelerating an already absurd premature teenhood and adulthood and overhyped sexuality (the link takes you to True.com, an advertisement for which greeted me on login). ... amazingly, most of these kid's profiles are pretty normal, but some of them just leave you shaking your head.

... rant off. Now, on with "Operation Screw With the DOJ and Make Lynne Cheney Squirm." Make sure you type the following into Google (and it wouldn't hurt to add them to your blog, or web page, too):

hot bunny terrorist fluffer banana
Osama butt pancake lube explosives yay
homemade nuke porn lollipop kiddie nipple bomb!!!

As Mark says:

Up, off the couch. Log in to Google. Type "Karl Rove eaten by giant homosexual squid." Type "George W. Bush beaten to lifeless pulp by swarm of angry kindergarten children." Enter "Samuel Alito loves his 'Weapons of Ass Destruction IV' DVD." It might not be much, but it sure sends the right kind of message. Don't you agree?

Heh

From Daily Kos: Cheers and Jeers: Wednesday,

"In a disturbing development this week, Iran broke open the seal on three of its nuclear facilities...which means even if they don't like them they won't be able to return them."

Conservative Intellectuals Analyzed

Hat tip to Mary at The Left Coaster, How Conservatives Argue: A Case Study:

Liberal: The USA has fifty states.

Conservative: No, it doesn’t.

Liberal: Yes, it does. The USA has fifty states.

Conservative: What about Guam? What about that Guam, huh? Or the Virgin Islands?

Liberal: Those are territories, not states. The USA has fifty states.

Conservative: Oh, so you’re saying those don’t count?

Liberal: Yes.

Conservative: Oh, so the people there don’t count? They’re not good enough, huh? I thought you liberals wanted everybody to be counted.

Pray For A Better Tomorrow

Arrived in my email box via my wife, via a knitters "flame" email list.

Bush is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh logs to be cut down in national forests.
He leadeth trucks into the still wilderness.
He restoreth my fears.
He leadeth me in the paths of international
Disgrace for his ego's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of pollution
And war, I will find no exit, for thou art in office.
Thy tax cuts for the rich and thy media control,
they discomfort me.
Thou preparest an agenda of deception in the
Presence of thy religion.
Thou anointest my head with foreign oil.
My health insurance runneth out.
Surely megalomania and false patriotism shall
follow me all the days of thy term.
And my jobless children shall dwell in my basement
forever.
Amen.

Note: Former Democratic Party Congressional candidate Andrew Kaza saw it first.

Bonus time: here's an earlier political reworking of the Lord's Prayer, perhaps even angrier and more cynical... final verse:

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me as long as I donate to the Party.
And In Bush’s house forever more
My dwelling place shall be, as long as I keep giving until it hurts.

Happy Chanukah

"Okay...
This is a song that uhh..
There's a lot of Christmas songs out there and uhh..
not too many Chanukah songs.
So uhh..
I wrote a song for all those nice little Jewish kids who don't
get to
hear any Chanukah songs.
Here we go..."

Put on your yarmulke
Here comes Chanukah
So much funukah
To celebrate Chanukah
Chanukah is the festival of lights
Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights

When you feel like the only kid in town without a Christmas tree
Here's a list of people who are Jewish just like you and me
David Lee Roth lights the menorah
So do James Caan, Kirk Douglas, and the late Dinah Shore-ah

Guess who eats together at the Carnegie Deli
Bowser from Sha Na Na and Arthur Fonzerelli
Paul Newman's half Jewish, Goldie Hawn's half too
Put them together, what a fine lookin' Jew

You don't need "Deck The Halls" or "Jingle Bell Rock"
'Cause you can spin a dreidel with Captain Kirk and Mr.Spock-
both
Jewish

Put on your yarmulke
It's time for Chanukah
The owner of the Seattle Supersonicahs
Celebrates Chanukah

O.J. Simpson, not a Jew
But guess who is? Hall of famer Rod Carew- he converted
We got Ann Landers and her sister Dear Abby
Harrison Ford's a quarter Jewish- not too shabby

Some people think that Ebenezer
Scrooge is
Well he's not, but guess who is
All three Stooges
So many Jews are in showbiz
Tom Cruise isn't, but I heard his agent is

Tell your friend Veronica
It's time to celebrate Chanukah
I hope I get a harmonicah
Oh this lovely, lovely Chanukah
So drink your gin and tonicah
And smoke your marijuanikah
If you really, really wannakah
Have a happy, happy, happy,
happy Chanukah

Happy Chanukah

War on Christmas?

Read this week's Deep Cover (a comic by Santa Cruz area artist Tim Eagan) at BrattonOnline (disclaimer: a site my company hosts and publishes), for an amusing take on the right's latest cultural jihad: the "liberal war on Christmas". It's just below the printed column.

UPDATE: I've added a direct link to Tim Eagan's site (click his name above). Also, just FYI, his comic is posted weekly... and is usually just plain brilliant. Also, a self-plug for business during the holidays: I'm self-employed, so if you're looking for affordable, high quality web and/or graphic design, check out my company, Godmoma's Forge, LLC. We've been in the business since 1994.

WASHINGTON, DC—In a sudden and unexpected blow to the Americans working to protect the holiday, liberal U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Stephen Reinhardt ruled the private celebration of Christmas unconstitutional Monday.

You might have to be a very regular blog reader to appreciate it, but I think this is one of the funniest things I have read in a very long time. Sample:

I understand you do impressions of other bloggers. Can you do, say, Atrios?

Oh, yes, I've practiced this one! A typical day in Eschatonville: Open thread, open thread, open thread, "Heh," open thread, open thread, "Wanker", open thread, "Heh indeedy," open thread, open thread, "Bobo strikes again"...Boobies!

Pray for Confederate Yankee

Cross posted at MyDD

One of our good friends in the freeper sector of the blogosphere has been afflicted with some sort of unidentified degenerative brain disease. In the interest of transparency and full understanding, I am pulling up the last few exchanges we have had in my previous post about Confederate Yankee Bans The Facts.

I'll pick up our informative exchange at the point where my good friend calls me an idiot:

Gary,

I hate to ruin your rant (you seem to be enjoying such a nice one, but I didn't delete your comment. It is still located in the comments for the post "Aid and Comfort." You even responded back to my response for this post.

Perhaps you should lay off the illegal substances.

Idiot.

Posted by: Confederate Yankee at November 25, 2005 06:14 PM

Editor's note: The omission of the close parens symbol was in the original comment.

Somewhat baffled by Confederate Yankee's irrational belief that I was accusing him of deleting my comment, I went back and re-read my original comment and replied:

Confederate Fascist,

It was very considerate of you to stop by STF and demonstrate your allergy to facts. If you had the reading comprehension level of a sixth grader, you would not have deluded yourself into thinking I accused you of deleting my comment from your ideologically fascist website.

Ask one of the neighborhood children to read my comment out loud for you and you will discover that I did not complain about my comment being deleted. I simply re-posted it for the convenience of STF readers. I did not wish to subject them to the intellectual dischord of visiting your fascist, fact challenged website.

Perhaps you should take a remedial reading course at your local Community College. I recommend asking them to teach you how to understand what the words on the page say, as opposed to what you would like them to say.

Recommended reading: How To Read A Book by Mortimer Adler.

Free Tip: Read the black parts of the page.

Posted by: Gary Boatwright at November 25, 2005 08:58 PM

Apparently I was still not being clear enough for Confederate Yankee's deranged, incapacitated, inebriated or intellectually inoperative brain to comprehend, because he responded with these irrelevant comments:

Hey Gary:

Perhaps before you try to teach others how to read, you should read The Concise English Handbook. I'm only mentioned in the credits of those who teach how to write, you stupid son of a bitch.

Posted by: Confederate Yankee at November 25, 2005 10:56 PM

Folks, I'd like to apologize for my language. The arrogantly stupid seem to irritate me very badly, and I shouldn't pick on them.

Posted by: Confederate Yankee at November 25, 2005 10:59 PM

As you can see our friend is struggling mightily with some sort of unidentified inner demon. Whatever he may have accomplished in his glory days of youth does not change the simple fact that he completely mis-read my comment. So in the interest of harmony in the blogosphere and clarification of the issue, here is my reply:

Fascist Moron,

I regret that I have been granting you too much respect. Somehow you reached the bizarre conclusion that I was accusing you of deleting the comment I posted at your website. Let's examine the sentence immediately preceeding the comment I reproduced here at STF:


Here is the entire comment that I posted at Confederate Fascist, without the link to the British newspaper that carried the article:

Allow me to repeat that statement with emphasis for clarity:

Here is the entire comment that I posted at Confederate Fascist, without the link to the British newspaper that carried the article:

This is apparently the way you read that same statement:

Here is the entire comment that I posted at Confederate Fascist, which Confederate Fascist deleted, without the link to the British newspaper that carried the article:

I believe that explains why I recommended that you only read the black parts of the page. I can't explain your pathetic inability to understand plain English or why you feel the need to blame me for your intellectual and emotional shortcomings.

Perhaps you should seek intensive therapeutic counseling so you could determine if your aversion to facts is emotional, intellectual or psychological. I wish you a speedy recovery from your affliction.

I ask all faithful STF readers to join hands with me in a prayer for Confederate Yankee's speedy recovery from his affliction. For the sake of his family, I hope he has not contracted the dreaded Mad Coulter Disease.

Bush More Unpopular Than Ever

Yellow Dog Blog: Turkeys Refuse Ceremonial White House Pardon,

In yet another publicity blow to the beleaguered Bush administration, both National Thanksgiving Turkeys have refused the ceremonial pardon traditionally given by the president. The turkeys, named Marshmallow and Yam, were selected for the eleventh-hour Thanksgiving reprieve based on a White House web-site poll.

[. . .] The White House expressed disappointment in the turkeys' decision to turn down the ceremonial pardon and suggested a possible partisan motivation.

Go read the rest.

God help us, please.

Received this in my email courtesy of a local activist acquaintance. No credits, was unable to find an example of it on the web, so unless someone cna point me to the author, he or she remains anonymous. The phrase, "Would someone please give him a blowjob so we can impeach him?" is quite common, however, as a search on Google will reveal.

A little late night humor...

Got a montage of snapshots from this site in my email today (courtesy of my mother). Did a search, found this site.

Bush or Chimp?

Brilliant concept. I particularly liked the juxtaposition of Bush reading a children's story book, and a chimpanzee reading "The Origin of Species". Aside from set-pieces of that sort, the similarities are quite amusing... the Resident does have a tendency to display the most unguarded expressions.

Arnold

Arnold has a sense of humor:

"If I would do another 'Terminator' movie I would have Terminator travel back in time and tell Arnold not to have a special election," the former action film star joked. "I should have also listened to my wife who said don't do it."
Now if only we could go back in time and tell the country not to invade Iraq...

Political Humor

Two new sites:

Spittle & Ink: The Weblog of Mark Spittle - good stuff, check out Judy Miller's "notes". :)

Schwarzenegger Street - an "alternative" to Sesame Street starting Arnie (instead of Earnie), and populated by creatures like Cheney the Constitution (eating) Monster, Bill O'Reilly the Grouch, etc., courtesy of Phil Angelides' campaign. I'd rate it three giggles out of five... just doesn't fully "gell" for me, although it produced a few snorts.

A Miserable Failure of a Presidency

Apparently, the right wing is organizing to replace the current result for miserable failure with M1cha3l M00re (geez, they sure take his criticism of the "miserable failure" pretty personally, don't they?) - whose eponymous web site is now the second highest ranking result whenever you search for "failure" or "miserable failure". Time to for some counter-measures, folks.

If there were any doubt that the current resident of the White House is a miserable failure, recent polls (showing him with among the lowest approval ratings ever) and the wholesale abandonment of much of his second term agenda should eliminate them. George W. Bush is a miserable failure of a President, and no organized right wing conspiracy is going to change that.

Brazilians and Brazilians

An e-mail I received:

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the President his daily briefing. He concludes by saying: "Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed."

"OH NO!" the President exclaims. "That's terrible!"

His staff sits in stunned silence--shocked at this uncharacteristic display of emotion--nervously watching as the President sits slumped in his chair with his head in his hands.

Finally, the President looks up and asks, "How many is a brazillion?"
