A humorous way of looking at the this year’s political climate, here is the latest offering from Frank Fleming at Pajamas Media.
Doesn’t it suck when you have a dog that barks all night? Everyone hates that. It’s annoying. It can even drive you pretty crazy if it goes on long enough. People hate that.
Know what also sucks? A zombie apocalypse. That’s when society collapses due to some spreading zombie virus, and most of your friends and family are dead, and you have to scrounge for food to survive while the walking dead threaten you around every corner. People also hate that.
Guess who are the Republicans and who are the Democrats in the above quote, and which annoyance people would rather live with? And any article that has the following line in it is definitely a must-read: “Stop being violent and racist, you ignorant hillbillies! And remember to vote Democrat in November.”
So the Democrats sucked. But not just plain old, usual politician sucked, but epic levels of suck where it’s hard to find an analogue in human history that conveys the same level of suckitude. It was sheer incompetence plus arrogance — and those things do not complement each other well. We’re talking sucking that distorts time and space like a black hole.
Go back up to the link now and enjoy the whole article. And remember:
So the Republicans kinda suck, and that’s why they’re going to win huge this November. Because in the land of epic, mega, ultra, apocalyptic levels of sucking, those who kinda suck are king. Or at least are going to win in a landslide.
Because once the zombie apocalypse is over, the annoying neighbor dog is going to be music to your ears.
Amen and amen.

There has been no more important election in my lifetime than the one we are facing this November.
We must work together to get out the Conservative vote – grass roots organizers from the right. The Constitution’s governing powers must be restored and respected.
After November we must remain diligent to ensure the new Congressional members do not become corrupted by Washington. They must govern with integrity or be removed themselves.
Remember in November
Very interesting. When you go to youtube and type in “Mourning in America” and hit enter, it brings up Reagan’s “Morning in America.” When you type it the second time it gives you what you want. I tried it three times with new browser windows – happened every time. A little political mischief going on there?

Obama spent another four hours on the golf course today while news on the oil spill gusher in the Gulf of Mexico keeps getting worse.
Did you wonder, like I did, why BP cut off the top of the pipe and let the oil flow out faster? Doesn’t seem to make sense. But then, I don’t know anything about drilling oil wells. On the other hand, dougr at The Oil Drum seems to understand a lot and writes an article that can only be described as frightening.
It is his opinion that BP cut the top of the pipe off to take pressure off damaged pipes under the sea floor. He calls that kind of underground damage a worst case scenario, which will lead to total collapse of the well and very little chance of sealing it off.
All of these things lead to only one place, a fully wide open well bore directly to the oil deposit…after that, it goes into the realm of “the worst things you can think of” The well may come completely apart as the inner liners fail. There is still a very long drill string in the well, that could literally come flying out…as I said…all the worst things you can think of are a possibility, but the very least damaging outcome as bad as it is, is that we are stuck with a wide open gusher blowing out 150,000 barrels a day of raw oil or more. There isn’t any “cap dome” or any other suck fixer device on earth that exists or could be built that will stop it from gushing out and doing more and more damage to the gulf. While at the same time also doing more damage to the well, making the chance of halting it with a kill from the bottom up less and less likely to work, which as it stands now?….is the only real chance we have left to stop it all.
It’s a race now…a race to drill the relief wells and take our last chance at killing this monster before the whole weakened, wore out, blown out, leaking and failing system gives up it’s last gasp in a horrific crescendo…
We can only hope the race against that eventuality is one we can win, but my assessment I am sad to say is that we will not.
The system will collapse or fail substantially before we reach the finish line ahead of the well and the worst is yet to come.
Meanwhile, BP is doing a “seabed integrity scan” amid speculation the entire underground oil reservoir of over 2 billion gallons of oil will bleed out, taking years to do so and causing the seabed to collapse in that area.
If he’s right………. No, just pray he’s wrong. Read the article here.

Read Casey at the Bat (below) first to refresh your memory, then enjoy this wonderful sendup by PJTV.
|Casey at the Bat by Ernest Lawrence Thayer ©|
|Published: The Examiner (06-03-1888)|
The Outlook wasn’t brilliant for the Mudville nine that day:
A straggling few got up to go in deep despair. The rest
But Flynn preceded Casey, as did also Jimmy Blake,
But Flynn let drive a single, to the wonderment of all,
Then from 5,000 throats and more there rose a lusty yell;
There was ease in Casey’s manner as he stepped into his place;
Ten thousand eyes were on him as he rubbed his hands with dirt;
And now the leather-covered sphere came hurtling through the air,
From the benches, black with people, there went up a muffled roar,
With a smile of Christian charity great Casey’s visage shone;
“Fraud!” cried the maddened thousands, and echo answered fraud;
The sneer is gone from Casey’s lip, his teeth are clenched in hate;
Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
And now the back story (there’s always a back story, isn’t there?).
In 1885 George Hearst decided to run for state senator in California. He purchased the San Francisco Examiner in order to self-promote his political views, and after the election gave the newspaper to his son, William Randolph Hearst. Thus began the Hearst publishing empire.
William Randolph Hearst had some experience editing the Harvard Lampoon while at Harvard, and took three Lampoon staff members with him when he went to California. One was Ernest L. Thayer, who signed his humorous Lampoon articles with the pen name “Phin”. Thayer wrote Casey at the Bat and it was first published in the San Francisco Examiner on June 3, 1888. Baseball Almanac
And now you know the rest of the story.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency.
It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
Quoted from an anonymous poster.

This is definitely one worth sending to your friends, posting on your Facebook page … and oh how I’d like to think that our President would watch it and take the message to heart.
