Things I’d Like To Post About Today ….. (061708, Morning)

Filed under: TILTpatBIDHAT — Tom @ 8:39 am

….. But I Don’t Have Any Time For:

(maybe this morning’s entry won’t disappear like yesterday’s)

  • The false bravado in Barack Obama’s “I’ll Bring a Gun” gambit shows what a great all-purpose nickname “Mr. BOOHOO-OUCH” (Barack O-bomba Overseas Hussein “Obambi” Obama – Objectively Unfit Coddler of Haters) really is.
  • This is the same Mr. Machobama who said last week that he gets queasy at the sight of blood. Notice how Howard “I’ve Got to Protect My Guy” Kurtz deleted the Q-word (what, it’s not in the Style Book?), and replaced it with “[faint]” at the bottom of this WaPo page. Larry Correla gets it right: “…. even at 70+ years old, he (McCain) would beat Obama to death with his walker.” Obama started all of this, so he’ll just have to endure it.
  • Apparently, the latest Shyamalan film is really bad (HT Instapundit) because “This isn’t just radical environmentalist fare; it’s perverse and anti-human.” No, no, no; radical environmentalism itself is perverse and anti-human. Even supposed “not so radicals” like Ted Turner support massive population reduction that could only be accomplished with brutality.
  • Darke Blog wonders if the Democrats are actively trying to drive the country into recession (HT NixGuy). Intentional or not, that’s result the Pelosi-Reid Do-Nothing, Obstruct-Everything Congress appears to be working towards. It’s a testament to the positive power of the 2001-2003 supply-side tax cuts that it hasn’t happened yet, and (crossing fingers) may not.
  • From Mark at Weapons of Mass Discussion — “(The Associated Press’s Nedra) Pickler is a perfect example of everything Tim Russert was not.” From top to bottom, AP is a perfect example of everything Tim Russert was not.
  • From Matt at Weapons of Mass Discussion — “…. until (Victoria Wells Wulsin Whatever) gets around to the truth, I expect we’ll keep hearing about malariotherapy.” Yes we will. The Dean of Cincinnati’s latest posts on it are here and here. Only in Wells Wulsin Whatever Wonderland (or at its wholly-owned subsidiary, Ohio Daily Hack) would “no further action was required” mean the same thing as “no merit whatsoever.” One of several points that could be made over here in English Language Land is that “no further action was required” ordinarily means that some kind of action must have previously occurred, usually not favorable. There is surely more to come on this.
