I told you things would get nasty on the campaign trail.

February 21, 2007

Hi Brit,

I told you things would get nasty as the race of 08 heated up.  Obama and Clinton have are in the process of firing the opening shot, Maureen Dowd Column Incites Hillary Attack On Obama — and Geffen.  The whole piece is worth a read, but here’s what I found interesting:

“Everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling,” Geffen said.

and

Clinton campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson just released the following statement: “While Senator Obama was denouncing slash and burn politics yesterday, his campaign’s finance chair was viciously and personally attacking Senator Clinton and her husband.

And these are just ranging shots.  I get the impression that we haven’t seen anything yet.  Good times, good times.

The real Hillary shows through!

February 20, 2007

Hi Brit,

As you undoubtedly know, a few years back we settled the “States’ Rights” issue with a bloody civil war.  However, we still have States.  I read this earlier today, Clinton Objects to Confederate Flag.  On the face of it, she is pandering to the black voters in South Carolina.  Yet, if one reads the article carefully, you find, “I think about how many South Carolinians have served in our military and who are serving today under our flag and I believe that we should have one flag that we all pay honor to, as I know that most people in South Carolina do every single day.”  The key to understanding this is knowing that Senator Clinton is not from South Carolina, and does not live there. So, she is advocating not having State flags.  Fortunately, I picked up enough Clinton speak while her husband was in office to get the full meaning.  This is a typical liberal toe-in-the-door move toward eliminating States altogether, which, as a by product, would also eliminate that pesky Electoral College.  I can see it now, one Nation, one Flag, one President For Life.

US President candidates

February 8, 2007

Hi Grit

As politics is slow in the UK today, due to snow getting into the brains of our Members of Parliament and freezing their brains (which might be seen as a welcome reflief), I thought I would take a web stroll through the US news on presidential canidates for 2008 on the grounds that this would be a less slippery place to be. However I am not sure that I achieved this.

I first came across some news was about Barak Obama and Hilary Clinton. Obama is portrayed as a mixed race, ex-pot smoking, religious convert without a stain on his character who some consider will be the first non-white President, and says that his intention is to unite the Democrats and Republicans (Oh Really?). Clinton on the other hand is portrayed as an old campaginer, ex-first lady with stains only on her husband’s past (Clothes?), with the machine to be able to fund and stay the course. Some also consider that Al Gore, of Global Warming film fame, based on a report that has been proved to be in error in at least 25 different instances, could also come into the frame. Then there is Senator Joe Biden, who apparently is renowned for his ability to pose questions in a manner that no-one understands let alone knows how to answer, and Senator John Kerry who they see has as much chance of successfully telling a joke as I have of becoming pregnant.

And this is just part of the Democrat list. However, at this stage I became seriously depressed at the whole thing, so I phoned the Samaritans to ask them to send someone round to stop me from going outside, laying down on the lawn and waiting from the snow to cover my confused brain. The reason for my condition was the fact there was one major omission in all of the stories I have read. I intend, providing my brain can take it, to look at the Republican band tomorrow. But I do not hold any hope of finding anything more promising.

The missing link? ……………….. Politics. Not in one story that I read did the media give one single comment on the policies that any of these candidates support or are proposing.

Then, just as the Samaritan person was banging on the door, it occurred to me why politics was missing. The election is set for 2008. Four years from that is 2012. I guess that your political parties have decided that, as the world will end in 2012, they might as well treat the electorate to a comedy President for the final term. After all, who is going to give a damn?

Hillary surrenders, terrorists win!

February 3, 2007

Hi Brit,

In a decisive preemptive strike, Clinton Promises to End War if Elected.  Thus, in addition to promising to institute socialist confiscation of business profits, she has now become the candidate of choice for radical Islamic terrorists.  Let’s just hope she doesn’t decide to go for the nudist vote next.

Congress calls on Climate Change expert!

February 3, 2007

Hi Brit,

If there was any doubt in your mind about Global Warming being nothing but a political ploy, this should remove it: Gore to Testify on Climate Change.  One other thing that is brought up in the article is that Al Gore may make a late entrance into the 2008 Presidential race.  Oh what fun that would be!  Who wouldn’t want to see a knock down drag out fight between Hillary and Al?  Of course, considering that Hillary has bigger stones than Al, my money would be on Clinton.  Go Colts!

Are you ready to rumble!

January 31, 2007

Hi Brit,

I mentioned that there can be many nasty comments made about fellow party members during the course of the primary campaigns.  Well, it’s already starting, Biden Unbound: Lays Into
Clinton, Obama, Edwards
.  As the days and weeks march on, keep in mind that this is just a warm up 🙂

There is one quote in the piece that attracted my attention, and is now getting a lot of discussion on the talk shows:

about Mr. Obama. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

This, you should note, is about as vicious as a liberal Democrat can be toward a black man in his own party.  I suspect that Senator Biden is in for a bit of trouble over that remark.

Bat out of hell, bite me world!

January 29, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was in a bit of a nostalgic mood this afternoon, so I put “Bat Out of Hell” on and cranked it up.  Man, what perfect timing!  Global Warming, extremest Muslim terrorists, liberals, Jane Fonda, Britney’s beaver, Big Brother racism, Hillary Clinton, the United Nations, President Bush, AlGore, Iraq, Iran, nuclear bombs, blood in the streets, and the end of the world; screw it all!  So, take a few minutes, put the CD on, crank it up and sing along!

Bat Out Of Hell lyrics

The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling

Way down in the valley tonight
There’s a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright
There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky
And a killer’s on the bloodshot streets
And down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heat
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
that’s pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light
But i gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over you know
We’ll both be so alone
Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you
I’m gonna hit the highway like a battering ram

On a silver black phantom bike

When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry

And we’re all about to see the light

Nothing ever grows in this rotten old hole

Everything is stunted and lost

And nothing really rocks

And nothing really rolls

And nothing’s ever worth the cost

And I know that I’m damned if I never get out

And maybe I’m damned if I do

But with every other beat I got left in my heart

You know I’d rather be damned with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

If Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night with you
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world

     that’s pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go

There’s always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out

I gotta break it out now

Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together

When it’s over you know

We’ll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell

I’ll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done

And the sun goes down

And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

I can see myself tearing up the road

Faster than any other boy has ever gone

And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe

And no one’s gonna stop me now

I gotta make my escape

But I can’t stop thinking of you

And I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late

I never see the sudden curve till it’s way too late

Then I’m dying on the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere is tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Breaking out of my body

And flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Still beating

Breaking out of my body and flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Thanks Jim; thanks Meat!  Still love it; still a fan.

Why Hillary is running for President

January 28, 2007

Hi Brit,

Just for a tiny bit of amusement, I thought you might be interested in knowing why Hillary Clinton is running for President.  It’s because she had no chance on American Idol, Hillary Clinton Sings National Anthem 😉  Sorry, I’m weak and couldn’t resist.

George Bush and the ladies triangle

January 27, 2007

Hi Grit

Although there has been no Clinton-type impropriety during George Bush’s Presidency, he must be wondering what he has done to become embroiled in a triangle on ladies.

It seems to me that this is the most important issue that George Bush has to face during the last two years of his term, namely how to deal with the ladies. In the past three months suddenly, out of seemingly nowhere, he has been placed in the middle of a triangle of female attackers.

First there is the leader of the house Ms Pelosi, who has made plain her disagreement with the way that he is conducting the Iraq war and a number of other issues. In fact, it is difficult to find an issue where there is any vestigage of agreement between the two.

Next comes Ms Merkel of the EU, seeking to promote a single US/EU marketplace. One only has to look at the imperfections of the EU’s own region wide policies to see how successful that will be. This despite the fact that there is no consensus of opinion in favour of it from the individual nations involved.

Lastly, Hilary Clinton has entered the fray. One of course has to wonder about her utterances of returning the core values back to American life, especially in view of the husbands antics whilst he was in office.

Whilst I am in no way a chauvinist, I have to wonder how Bush is going to cope with this new position he finds himself in. Having spent the last six years discussing issues with male politicians, with whom he shares a similar daily word output, how is he going to fare in a position where he has to discuss these with ladies, who researches have proven to have a word output of at least 2.5 times that of a male?

US Presidential race – confused

January 25, 2007

Hi Grit

I may be a little dense, but I am having real trouble working out who is doing what in the race to become your next President. Firstly people seem to jumping jumping on the band wagon. As far as I can see there are now three democrats involved, including Hilary Clinton. I have yet to catch up with who is running for the other side, but no doubt that will come to me in the next few days.

Also, it appears that everyone is leading on the same home policy, home care. Assuming that the Iraq situation is over by then, won’t this be just a little confusing for the electorate?

Oh I will also be looking to see how much money is being thrown at the election campaigns as well.

A mystery solved!

January 25, 2007

Hi Brit,

I’ve been talking about the mysterious qualities of Barack Obama, the liberal Messiah, for a while now.  Mostly, I was wondering about what he really stands for, which seemed to be classified information, until now: Obama Calls for Universal Health Care.  Add that to this, keeping in mind that a picture is worth a thousand words,

obama-ted.jpg

and Obama’s true nature shines through.  No wonder the High and Mighty in Hollywood are fighting with one another to be the first to throw money at his feet!  Barack is a liberal’s liberal.  A man with more feelings than brains.  Someone who knows he has a destiny to be part of the elite, deciding what’s best for us common people, even though, you can bet, it’s not what’s best for Him and his Rich cronies.  With this revelation, it’s easy to see why Hillary has been cast aside.  Just like Hillary, Obama is liberal to the core and a minority.  Unlike Hillary, he doesn’t come across to the general public as an evil bitch.

Hillary not liberal enough?

January 25, 2007

Hi Brit,

It seems there is some politics inside politics out on the Left Coast, Hillary’s Hollywood Friends Switch Sides.  Could it be that Hillary isn’t liberal enough for the Rich and Famous?  Or, has sexism come to Tinsel Town?  Perhaps, and I’ll go out on a limb here, it’s because Senator Clinton is a bitch?  Well, that one probably isn’t right.  The liberal elite have plenty of bitches among their number, so they should be used to that.  Ah, I’ve got it, Barack Obama is the Antichrist and has them under his spell.  And not the Spawn of Satan, could it be that the mysterious would-be-President is even more liberal than the Wicked Witch of New York?

As to Senator Obama, there’s also a rumor going around that he’s a Muslim and attended a madrassa while his family lived in Indonesia, Obama Versus Fox News.   I saw a bit on this last week, but figured it was too good to be true.  However, now that I’ve read that piece, I begin to feel that the Secretive Senator does protest too much.  Not to fear, I’m so sure the liberal press will not sleep until they cover up the truth behind this ugly rumor.  Oh, I meant to say, uncover the truth.  Sorry.  My bad.

Clinton and Bush – keeping it in the family

January 22, 2007

Hi Grit

I see that, after having the Bush father and son, your country is trying for a husband and wife in the hilary.jpgPresidency, with Hilary Clinton seeking to follow her rather “infamous” partner Bill into the White House. Is this a new trend with US politics, to keep it in the family? Based upon past records are we also to expect the possibility of Mother and daughter repeating the Bush and Bush trick, only this time daughter Chelsea following Hilary?

Oh and a little help if you please. I found this quote from the lady and wondered if you could interpret it for me?

 “I concluded, based on the work of my life time and my experience and my understanding of what our country has to confront in order to continue to make opportunity available to all of our citizens here and to restore our leadership and respect of America around the world, that I would be able to do that – to bring our country together to meet those tough challenges,”

The race for ’08 starting a bit early.

January 21, 2007

Hi Brit,

Since the campaign to be President in 2008 is starting a bit early, like a year early, we may as well start keeping track of the players.  Considering more Democrats have thrown their pleas for contributions into the ring, let’s start with them.

Barack Obama, man of mystery and little experience (7 years as a state senator and less than one term as US Senator) who’s early years are carefully left mentioned by the liberal press.  The candidate has been cautious about discussing anything of importance, including his stand on political issues.  We do know, however, that he is a fan of the Bears (American football team) and that there is a minor scandal, Barackwater, that may haunt him later.  Considering the trend in US political races toward massive amounts of negative campaign ads, Barack’s lack of history may be a valuable thing.  Oh, and you’re going to hear his middle name a lot, that being Hussein, as in Saddam Hussein.

Hillary Clinton.  Whitewater.  Socialized medicine.  Dead lawyer.  Monica.  Bill.  Scandal, scandal, scandal, and they’re all going to come back.  Besides, almost as many people hate her as hate Bush.  Still, she’s evil and conniving enough to have a shot at the Big Prize.  Plus, she’s got that selling her soul to the Devil thing going.

Bill Richardson.  Currently Governor of New Mexico, which is appropriate since he’s Hispanic, whatever the heck that means.  Of course, Mexicans are also said to be Hispanic, and, given our insane illegal immigration problem, this isn’t going to be a check in his plus column.  He also carries a good deal of baggage from his days as President Clinton’s minion.  Good luck Bill, because that’s the only chance you have.

Dennis Kucinich, who cares?  Sorry, I really don’t know much about Dennis, except that he is a US Representative, he’s run for President before, he’s short, and he’s so funny looking that I can never hear what he says because I’m laughing so hard.  If he does a lot of radio spots, who knows, the Hobbit vote may propel him to single digits in the primary.

That should be more than enough to get us started.

Tax revolt or just revolting?

January 20, 2007

Hi Brit,

While we don’t get hit up for quite as much money by our Governments as y’all do, some people still feel it too much.  This guy is taking his opinion on the subject to extremes, N.H. Tax Evader Prepares for Raid.  While I can certainly empathize with Mr. Brown, who hasn’t wanted to give the Tax Man a taste of hot lead, there is something seedy about this incident that leads me to believe all the facts aren’t in yet.  Of course, I feel strongly that one’s home should never be taxed, otherwise you’re just renting it from the Government.  For that matter, why should retired people have to pay taxes?  In case you don’t know, our Government, back during the Clinton Administration, started taxing Social Security payments!  You want to talk about insane laws, that one has to be high in the discussion.  However, that’s what all too often passes for logic among liberals.

The last straw for the UN?

January 19, 2007

Hi Brit,

From time to time we’ve mentioned just how incompetent, wasteful, and corrupt the United Nations is, however, this bit of breaking news will either sink them or get swept under the carpet like the Oil For Food scheme, U.S. State Department Reveals North Korea’s Misuse of U.N. Development Program Funds and Operations.  Another view on the situation, with more background information is, UNDP’s North Korea Scandal, Just a Tip of the Iceberg, Opens Window on Larger Problems.  What great folks we have there in the Big Apple, apparently giving millions of dollars to Kim Jong Il, the tiny dictator who is trying to build nuclear weapons, and not knowing what he’s spending it on.  The question remains, was he blowing it on his legion of sex slaves, whiskey, cigars, his A-bomb program, or all of them?  The good, yet sad, news is that the UN is wasting more on it’s new luxury club house than they’re slipping to the Hitler want-to-be in North Korea, at least, that we know about at the moment.  While we’re at it, considering how well the UN liked President Clinton, that it was Clinton who accepted the nuclear site inspection deal that let North Korea keep working on bombs, Bill’s willingness to accept foreign money in exchange for political favors, and this latest exchange of currency, perhaps someone should look for a Clinton connection?

Didn’t the Democrats promise a more ethical Congress?

January 6, 2007

Hi Brit,

I seem to recall a lot of talk from the Democrats about having a more ethical Congress if they took over.  I guess that means they’re going to remove Senator Reid (D – Nev) from his office, Reid’s Land Deal.  It looks like the fat cat Senator has picked up a few hundred thousand dollars in a shady, and undisclosed, land deal.  Reid, the new Senate Majority Leader, claims everything was on the up and up, just like Hilary Clinton’s gift for commodities trading, and not to bother looking into the details.  Oh, and he also offered, showing just how gracious the evil rich guy is, to go back, now that he’s been caught, and amend his ethics reports for the last decade or so.  I would point out to Nanny Pelosi, who spouted volumes on the Culture of Corruption in Washington during the last campaign cycle, that all Impeachments start in the House and that one for Senator Rich Guy Reid should be at the top of her agenda, right after she legislates poverty, intolerance, and Big Business out of existence.

Another liberal on the take!

December 27, 2006

Hi Brit,

Once again there is news that the “culture of corruption” in Washington is still around, despite the campaign promises of the Democrats.  As a matter of fact, it would seem that another Democrat has been caught taking lobbyist money for political favors.  Representative John Murtha (D – Pa.,) you know, the get out of Iraq now twit, has a long term deal with (gasp!) lobbyists for Defense Contractors to channel hard cash into his non-profit organization for special attention on legislation concerning their companies.  Nonprofit Connects Murtha, Lobbyists

 Not to worry though, I’m sure Nanny Pelosi, who seems to hate all things military, will make a concerted effort to get to the bottom of this evil.  I suspect Murtha’s days in Congress are numbered.  Of course, there is that tendency for our liberal politicians to ignore corruption by one of their own, President Clinton for instance, so the number of Murtha’s days may be quite large.

Clinton Clone Conspiracy

November 29, 2006

It has come to my attention, from a normally unreliable source, that:

“Bill Clinton is being cloned.  Based on directives from the Inner Circle of the Bilderberg Group, genetic samples from the ex-President have been sent to a secret genetics lab in Cheyenne Mountain.  Numerous clones are  being created.  They will be raised in various secret training facilities around the world, where they will be brainwashed into perfect tools of the Powers That Be.  Upon reaching maturity they are to undergo plastic surgery to disguise their true nature.  The goal is to create super politicians that will assume key positions in all world governments, making control by the Bilderbergers easier to maintain.”

Could be I suppose.  Of course, since I’ve always suspected Clinton is a space alien, the lab boys could be in for a big surprise 😉
