MAD Libs vs. Vulture Conservatives

800px-Mad_dog - Copy

According to Scott Whitlock of NewsBusters, [emphasis added to quotes]

Chris Matthews appears to have a Mad Libs-style list of the worst insults he hurls at conservative. On Wednesday, he chose “verbal terror” to smear everyone on the right who disagrees with all of the “great things” Barack Obama wants to do. The Hardball anchor opened his show by hyperbolically warning, “Political armageddon!” According to Matthews, the fight between the President and conservatives is not a conflict of ideas.  h/t Gordo

No, it’s much more than a conflict of ideas, alleges Matthews.  Watch the video of him, salivating like a mad dog, at NewsBusters. Continue reading

Big Nanny: Get Out of My Life!

Today’s noon news was illustrative of where we find ourselves today, in the Obamanation.  There was a common theme to the stories, although it’s doubtful that the news producer recognized it: That being the emerging Nanny State, to which any constitutional conservative must be driven to scream,

Get out of my life!!!!!

“Stray Cats and Dogs … Some of the Provisions That Got Snuck In Might Have Violated That Pledge”

Obama’s “stunning admission” runs from the beginning of this video to about 50 seconds in.  The video was uploaded in January 2010.  (The date of his admission is unknown.  Emphasis added to quotes.)

If you look at the package that we’ve presented–and there’s some stray cats and dogs that got in there that we were eliminating, we were in the process of eliminating–for example, for example, we said from the start that it was gonna be important for us to be consistent in saying to people:

“If you can have your, if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it.”

Obamacare: Take Your Medicine, and Like It! (Open Thread)

Tomorrow the Obamacare exchanges are supposed to open for business.  Whether they will function or not is yet to be seen.  Word is that the software has glitches (see here, also) and is vulnerable to determined hackers and identity thieves.  All the crack software developers are probably working for Barack Obama’s spying NSA, so it’s likely that software development for Obamacare was farmed out to well-connected progressive friends of Obama’s–like ACORN community organizers, “minority” contractors, and former hackers who quickly created startups with a little help from the taxpayers via the Stimulus.

Like this president, prior experience and a record of accomplishments not required. Continue reading

If Obama Had a Mother, Would She Look Like Louise Sollowin?


We don’t yet have a photo of  Louise A. Sollowin; but we do know that, like Stanley Ann Dunham, she was a mother who was beloved by her family.

Louise Sollowin spent 50 years helping her sister fire up the oven at Orsi’s Italian Bakery [in Nebraska], where her love of the family business kept her going well into her 80s.

Sollowin baked and cleaned, chatting almost exclusively in Italian with her sister, Frances Orsi, whose husband, Claudio, ran the bakery for decades. Sollowin’s husband, Joe, did the books.

Requiem for a Twinkie (Open Thread)

Thanks to greedy union members, 18,500 employees of Hostess will now be out of work.   We the People might have to say goodbye to those delicious treats that so many of us have learned to love.

Gone will be Twinkies. Gone will be Hostess cupcakes.

No more Ding Dongs.  No more Ho Hos.

Gone, too, will be Wonder Bread, the bread that most of us grew up eating.

Let Them Eat Big Macs (Open Thread)

Recently, we were discussing how Michelle Obama, appearing on the Jay Leno program, took it upon herself to publicly chastise Olympic gold-medalist Gabby Douglas for celebrating her win by enjoying an Egg McMuffin.

Actually, Egg McMuffins are tasty and not all that bad for you: 300 calories, 108 of them from fat (which is probably from the cheese, which you could decide to hold). Continue reading
