Debate night - I can't look

I can't look for a couple of reasons. One, I know what's going to happen. Two, no matter what happens, it's not going to change my vote, it's just going to piss me off.

Here's a sneak peek:

Lehrer: Mr. Bush, why do you enjoy killing Iraqi children for sport?
Bush: [Insert bumbling malaprop here]
Lehrer: Senator Kerry, why do you think Mr. Bush enjoys killing children, drinking their blood and drilling for oil where their carcasses lay?
Kerry: Well... [Insert condescending haughty long-winded prevarication disguised as policytalk]
Thank you gentlemen...

Now do you see why I can't watch?

Plenty of folks are live blogging in varying states of inebriation. (I'm taking it nice and slow with some bourbon whiskey while I avoid the debate.) Enjoy these roundups:

Blogs of War - stone cold sober
Johnny Walker Red - not live blogging, but probably drinking Budweiser and chain smoking
Ace of Spades - Ace has a hilarious drinking game in which you must participate
The Commissar - he doesn't appear to be drinking, but hard to say
Spoons - updating so quickly he must be sober
Martinipundit - Martini - shaken - but not sure if it's Gin or Vodka
Powerline - apparently it's getting pretty wild over there - well, as wild as bloggers can get
Armies of Liberation - finds good news with a snap bus stop poll

10/1 UPDATE:

The question on everyone's mind this morning is who won the debate?

From what I can tell, it depends on which way you're already leaning. I've been sampling the right-leaning bloggers mainly, and they're calling it a wash or a slight Bush victory. If you sample the lefties, it was a blowout for Lurch - he mopped the floor with Bush. What does this add up to? 6 1/2 tons of nothing.

If you're an elitist, internationalist, bedwetting NY-Times-reading surrender socialist, then you got all the multi-lateral U.N.-loving "Bush lied people died" garbage you wanted out of the debate. All the while, you enjoyed watching President Junior stumble while trying to remember his words.

If you are a Bush supporter, you may have done a lot of cringing, but you got a reminder that Bush is about substance, character and leadership in the global war on islamofascism. That's the only issue that matters this campaign.

I'm not voting for Bush to go win intellectual bullshit debates against the world's tin-pot dictators and Al Qaeda leadership. I'm voting for Bush so that all that's left of these tyrants and islamofascists is a greasy stain in the desert.

No debate is going to change the fact that Bush is willing to fight the war and Lurch is willing to hoist the white flag of surrender. And that's the bottom line, bitches.

Religion of Peace™ wipes out 34 Iraqi kids

(via Fox News)

Bombs kill 41 in Iraq - 34 of them kids.

BAGHDAD, Iraq — At least three bombs exploded near a U.S. convoy in western Baghdad on Thursday, killing 34 children and three adults, a hospital official said. Hours earlier, a homicide car bombing killed a U.S. soldier and two Iraqis on the capital's outskirts.

It was unclear if the bombs — which also wounded 137 people, including 10 U.S. soldiers — targeted the convoy or a ceremony marking the opening of a new sewage system in the neighborhood that was taking place at the same time. Also unknown was the nationalities of the casualties or whether there were U.S. soldiers among the dead.

If there are two things that the islamofascists hate more than anything else - it's the modernization of sewage/water/infrastructure and children who are still alive.

Swamped at work today, so visit these fine folks covering this most recent ROP™ massacre:

Sergeant Gomer Pyle Carter reporting for duty

Excellent piece this morning by one of the intellectuals over at FrontPageMag regarding President Failure's historical love for tyrants and recent pronouncements that Bush was selected, not elected. It seems that Jimmuh forgot to take his meds and is blathering on about the election has already been stolen again by those meanies down in Florida.

Finally, Jimmy Carter—a man who has given the thumbs up to the “elections” of some of the world’s worst tyrants—has found an election with which he can take issue.

Too bad the one place in the world he is willing to single out for scolding—preemptively—is Florida. (And expect the DNC to be waving it in the event of a close race there.)

Don't worry - they're already planning for the recount in several states. Gore set the table, now Lurch & John Boy are going to chow down.

Beyond Carter's nitwittery about Florida 2000 - which these bedwetting leftists will still not shut up about - Carter's history is littered with the carcasses of faux elections that he called "fair and square".

Because of provisions in the infamous Oslo Accords, Palestinians in 1996 had their first—and to date, only—opportunity to elect their own leader. Not that they had much of a choice, though.

Controlling all major television and radio, Yasser Arafat made sure that he dominated the airwaves. Editors and reporters at newspapers not directly under Arafat’s thumb were threatened and intimidated with beatings and arrests. And Arafat’s sole opponent was a 72-year-old woman, a social worker named Samiha Khalil who got, in the words of the New York Times, a "surprisingly high" 9 percent of the vote.

Hardly the stuff of a real election, yet Carter described this mess as "open and fair."

You know how much Jimmuh loves the PLO and islamofascists in general. So much so, that he donated several of our helicopters to them in Iran back in '79. While Carter loves those radical islamists - he's not in love with them - his true loves are Central American Marxists.

Carter's love of thugs has not waned over the years. Last month, he certified the widely condemned referendum in which Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez supposedly won by a wide margin of 59-to-41.

Exit polling conducted by the highly regarded Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates, however, found the exact opposite result: 59 percent opposed the communist "President," with only 41 percent in favor.

As explained by the Wall Street Journal's Mary O'Grady, Carter lacked the ability to prove the exit polls wrong (which could not have been 36 points off), because he only had access to a sampling of the easy-to-manipulate software tabulations printed out by voting booths. Not that it stopped him, though.

It should come as no surprise that Carter sided with the despot over a respected (Democratic) polling firm. Not just because of his disturbing track record, but because he and Chavez share a close, mutual friend: Fidel Castro.

In a stomach-turning first-person essay on his trip to Cuba in May 2002 that reads like a "My summer vacation with a bloodthirsty tyrant," Jimmy Carter writes, "President Castro and I had a friendly chat about growing peanuts" on the way to the hotel, and then later "[t]hat evening President Castro and I had a general discussion of issues and then enjoyed an ornate banquet."

With prose that might make even Castro’s PR flacks blush, Carter lavishes praise on Cuba’s "superb systems of health care and universal education," "a remarkable medical school," and the "amazing musical and dance performances" of "mentally retarded and physically handicapped children." Then, this doozy: that the "fundamental right [of civil liberties enjoyed by Americans to change laws] is also guaranteed to Cubans."

What Carter neglected to mention was that while he was staying at a hotel off-limits to ordinary Cubans, Castro was probably busy killing a political enemy or jailing innocent citizens.

Ol' Jimmy Carter was and always will be a presidential failure and a mental midget. It is nice to have him around, though. We need the entertainment - all the new, younger leftists are so angry that they're just no fun.

American traitor sadly still alive, seeks commuted sentence

Yeah, I'd forgotten about him too. John Walker Lindh, hero to American leftists everywhere, is now requesting that his 20-year sentence be commuted.

John Walker Lindh asked President Bush on Tuesday to commute his 20-year prison sentence for aiding the Taliban.

His lawyer, James Brosnahan, said that Lindh was fighting alongside the Taliban in a civil war against the Northern Alliance, that he is not a terrorist and that he never fought against U.S. troops.

The tragedy of this story is that we even know Walker's name. This should have been a story we never heard about, because it should have been dealt with in Afghanistan with a 40-caliber shell. This traitorous piece of California street trash should have been treated no differently than any of the other Taliban enemies that were appropriately offed.

Instead, we have to keep this scumbag alive in our prison system, listening to his rat-bastard lawyer bleat on about this and that. I hope they'll extend his prison term just because he had the nerve to ask for clemency.

More on vote suppression efforts

Jeff has received his official VRWC marching orders and has declared that Democracy is too important to leave to the voters. Now more than ever, brother.

Important update: With the 'election' 5 weeks away, our Cyberfraudware™, aka 'Black5 2.0,' is in place. When the tallies come in, Bush will receive 99% of the vote. This crushing defeat will surely silence our adversaries & send them whimpering into the corner to sulk. (See Fox News plant: "Expert Predicts Phreaking Huge Landslide")

"HOWEVER - we're still instructing our forces to interfere with the voting, as we did in Florida 2000. You will be assigned a precinct station, & provided with the names & photographs of suspect voters. If you see one arriving, trip them or push them down. Club them over the head. If necessary, a cleaner (code name 'XRLQ') will be sent to break their legs. (See Fox News plant: "Precinct Mugging Just Awful New Danger".)

"A squadron of security moms has been enlisted by a pushy operative (code name 'Michelle Malkin') to ferry you from precinct to precinct, in case people become suspicious."

This is just the tip of the iceberg for outdoing our 2000 VRWC efforts.

Great news about the two Simonas

(via Right on Red)

According to news reports, the two Italian foreign aid workers earlier feared beheaded have been released along with some other Iraqi and Egyptian hostages.

In Gaza, the Palestinian Authority suddenly realized that CNN is on their side and have released CNN producer Riad Ali.

Lose/lose on immigration

While surfing from Monday Night Football to Family Guy last night, I tripped and fell upon part of a Bill O'Reilly interview with President Junior. Much like a car crash, I couldn't look away.

To his credit, Bill asked the President one of the questions I would ask - "how do you plan to stop the flow of an estimated 3 million-plus illegals from streaming into this country?" After stumbling around and trying to find some words, the President said that (paraphrasing) they're coming here to find work and feed their families. He said they needed temporary worker cards (translation: amnesty) as if this was some kind of answer to the question.

At least the President didn't hide the Republican agenda of open borders for cheap labor. If illegal immigration is your issue this Presidential election, you're out of luck. The Republicans want to keep illegals streaming into the country so that they'll have someone to provide cheap labor for construction, landscaping and other manual labor that the American underclass is too good to perform. The Dim-O-Cracks would like to erase our national borders altogether as an excuse to expand the welfare state and rope in millions more dim-o-crack voters - plus, there's nothing they can't stand worse than national soverignity. The Republicans are fools if they think illegals are going to punch any chads for the GOP.

It's a lose/lose this election cycle for anyone who wants to seal off the borders and protect our economy from the drain of illegals and our cities from the threat of terrorists using the same entries into the U.S.

Why bother shipping jobs overseas when we can have foreigners doing those jobs here at home?

FYI, if any of you illegals are unsure where to cross the border, Michelle Malkin has some helpful directions for you...

The debate over watching the debates

President Junior came out today and said that Lurch could spend 90 minutes debating himself.

I've got to give his handlers some credit. This particular address did have some good zingers buried in it - much better than the usual stump speech.

At an Ohio campaign event, Bush referred to his practice sessions for the debate at his Texas ranch over the weekend.

"It's been a little tough to prepare because (Kerry) keeps changing positions on the war on the terror," he joked.

"He voted for the use of force in Iraq and then didn't vote to fund the troops," Bush said. "He complained that we're not spending enough money to help in reconstruction in Iraq and now he's saying we're spending too much. He said it was the right decision to go into Iraq and now he calls it the wrong war.

"He could probably spend 90 minutes debating himself," Bush added to hoots of laughter from his supporters.

Kerry responded that with American soldiers' lives on the line in Iraq, it was no time for jokes.

"When U.S. soldiers are in harm's way, the American people don't want jokes and fantasy spin from their president, they want to hear the truth," he said in a statement issued from Spring Green, Wisconsin where he is preparing for the debate.

Meanwhile, in Flyover City, USA (and I'm sure it pains Lurch to have to travel to where the commoners live), Lurch is calling for an end to campaign television advertising. That means they must be working.

Kerry said America's middle classes had suffered from the huge tax cuts that Bush had presided over and which Democrats say mainly benefit the most wealthy.

Yeah, the middle class (myself included) hates it when we get to keep more of our money instead of handing it over to Washington elitists like Lurch, who piss it away with reckless abandon. What an elitist, condescending asshole.

On to the debates - am I the only one dreading them and planning not to watch them at all? There is nothing that makes me cringe quite as much as watching a Bush press conference or debate. Yes, I'm voting for him, but he is absolutely horrible when he has to ad lib. He's not that much better when the speech is written and fully rehearsed.

My only hope is that Lurch comes off like the haughty, over-priveleged bastard that he is and that Bush comes off as the genuine Texan that I wish he was. I'm sure plenty of good blogfolk will be live blogging the debate, so perhaps I'll just check out some of their reviews after it's all over. I just don't think I have the stomach to watch.

Sinead O'Connor to planet Earth: "Cut it out, you guys!"

Sinead O'Connor has taken out a full page ad in the Irish Examiner asking people to quit poking fun at her.

DUBLIN, Ireland (AP) - One-time pop sensation Sinead O'Connor was back in the news Friday - by taking out a full-page ad pleading for people to stop making fun of her.

O'Connor, who shot to international fame in 1990 with her biggest hit Nothing Compares 2 U, claimed she had been "consistently ridiculed, lashed and called mad" for decades, particularly in her native Ireland.

"I don't think there can be any person male or female from this country who has been as consistently lashed as I have been and always am no matter what I set out to do," she complained during her 2,000-word essay published in the Irish Examiner newspaper.

"If ye all think I am such a crazy person why do ye use me to sell your papers?" she wrote, adding, "Please, I just want to be a little old lady now, and not be all controversial and not be bashed and called crazy and laughed at when I open my mouth to sing or speak."

Call me puzzled, but did I miss something? Has anyone actually talked about her in a decade or so?

It's a good news Monday

(via Rusty Shackleford)

The islamofascist scumbag who kidnapped and killed Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl has reportedly been killed in Pakistan.

Pakistan says security forces have killed a top al-Qaida militant who was allegedly involved in two assassination attempts on President Pervez Musharraf, a close U.S ally in the war on terrorism.

Officials say that one of the country's most wanted men, Amjad Hussain Farooqi, was killed in a gunfight with security forces in the southern Pakistani town of Nawabshah. The man had a price of more than $300,000 on his head and was believed to be a key link between local extremist groups and the al-Qaida terror network.

Good riddance to another piece of Al Qaeda human debris and kudos to whomever took the winning shot(s). I share Rusty's sentiment: Amjad Hussain Farooqi can rot in hell.

Others on the Pearl case include Backcountry Conservative, In The Bullpen.

In other good news today, (via Jihad Watch) there is word that the two Italian hostages may still be alive and in good condition.

I hope to God this is true, and since it's a good news Monday, I'm going to be optimistic and avoid my tendency towards negativity.

Armies of Liberation and Diggers Realm are both on the case of the Italian hostages. Digger adds:

The terrorist now claim that they will hold the women hostage until Italy pulls all troops out of Iraq.

..."send a clear message to the Italian people and the Silvio Berlusconi government: that the Iraqi people denounces the sending of Italian troops to Iraq and calls for the courageous decision to withdraw them, like the Spanish government which pulled its troops out in order to retain its friendly ties with the Iraqi people."

Yeah, those courageous Spanish that bowed to terrorists demands. I've been covering this story pretty tightly and am happy if this information is true.


Stop the Vote!

At this time in a presidential election cycle, if you consider yourself to be one of the highly coveted "undecided" voters, you are either lying or a blithering idiot.

Why do I make such a bold assertion? Simple. Anyone who has paid even nominal attention to contemporary world issues, current domestic events or politics should have taken sides by now. I have more respect for the socialist Michael Moore-loving democrat at this point in the campaign than the blessed undecided moderate. At least the Moore sycophant knows where he/she stands and pays attention to the issues - sure, they get it completely wrong, but at least they're involved.

Whether you're an anti-Capitalist Ruckus Society™ Marxist Nader voter, a neo-lib democrat, a dope-smoking Libertarian, a big-government Republican or a supporter of any of the other dozens of candidates, you should have paid attention and taken sides by now.

That's why I'm launching the Six Meat Buffet Stop the Vote campaign!

Much like the left's many get-out-the-vote efforts (i.e. Rock the Vote, Voters for Choice, blah blah blah), my newfangled KEEP HOME THE VOTE campaign will erase the gains made by these socialist groups and keep uninformed, worthless voters from screwing things up for the rest of us. Most thinking people will agree that it is far too easy to vote in this country - not just for illegal aliens and the deceased, but for the brain-dead government-cheese-eating daytime-soap-watching handout generation.

How does my campaign work? Thanks for asking - it's a simple, three-pronged approach:

  • Sway
  • Misinform
  • Distract

First - SWAY. This first step is only necessary if you have "undecided" friends who have the capacity for logic. Use the many resources provided by the Blogosphere to inform this person (or people) just what a horrible choice John Kerry is for America. Perhaps have them enjoy Kerry's book The New Soldier or the Swift Vets' book Unfit for Command. You have many options that will sway the logical thinker away from the Vietcong candidate. If all else fails, remind them how Kerry will protect us after the next 9/11 happens here on U.S. soil.

Next - MISINFORM. If you've determined that this undecided voter is incapable of logic - this will be the case with most of these cretins - then, move to step two, misinformation. (And don't feel bad about doing this part - Rather, Brokaw, Jennings, Couric, et al, do this to them on a daily basis and they really seem to like it.) Some examples:

If you know this voter is leaning towards Dim-O-Crack candidates AND you live in a swing state, tell them that their vote will be unnecessary because you read in a MacPhereson/Smith poll that the state was no longer in play due to Kerry's 18 point lead. If they ask who MacPhereson/Smith is, just tell them that they've had a 90% effectiveness ratio in the past twelve elections, so you should listen to them.

Another example - ask your leftist-leaning friend if they've registered to vote yet. If they say no, tell them that there was a new law passed this year that allows voters to register at the polls on the same day they vote - and you don't even need I.D. Feel free to add your own misinformation as necessary.

Lastly, DISTRACT. If you haven't succeeded with your undecided friends in steps one or two, take care of your own voting early (via early voting or absentee ballot) and plan a party/getaway for yourself and some select friends out of state - perhaps even Vegas! Tell them that you got a really good deal on airfare and that's why you have to take the trip on a Monday - Wednesday instead of a weekend. In addition to being stupid, undecided left-leaning voters are also notoriously cheap. Sure, you'll spend a couple grand to throw this shin-dig, but you'll be securing the future for the rest of us. If your budget is tight, then just plan a low-cost fishing or skiing trip. Be creative.

Bloggers, we need you and your sphere on influence to spread the word about the STOP THE VOTE™ campaign. To join up, simply trackback or send an e-mail to sixmeat-at-gmail-dot-com letting me know that you want to join the campaign and I'll list and link to you here. Feel free to transport the official STOP THE VOTE logo to your own site and link back if you feel so inclined.

I know that if we get enough people involved, we can keep idiots out of the voting booth this November. We may only stop a few hundred nitwits from voting, but remember that Bush only won Florida by 537 votes in 2000 - every stopped vote counts.

Bush volunteered for duty

Ex-Tennessean and right-wing crank Johnny Walker Red has scolded me for not watching my local news and missing this story about how President Junior actually volunteered for duty during Vietnam.

First of all, Johnny, I was out of town all weekend, hence the light blogging. Second of all, I would have missed it anyway because I only watch WATE & Fox 43 because I have the hots for newsanchorbabe Danielle Banks. Mrs. Holmes does not understand this attraction. But I digress.

Retired Colonel Ed Morrisey served in the Air National Guard and is familiar with the President's record since the beginning of his service.

Opposite a portrayal of a soldier not performing his duty he describes a flyer, near the top of his class...

According to Morrisey, then-Lieutenant Bush more than fulfilled his guard requirements.

Morrisey says in the six years the President served he never failed to meet participation point requirements.

"Bush averaged 176 per year. In no year did he have less that 50," says Morrisey. "He was rated by his commander, Col. Maurice Udell in the top 5 of his pilots."

One of the criticisms leveled at the President is that he sought guard service to keep him from serving in Vietnam.

Morrisey says, "not so."

"The Air Force, in their ultimate wisdom, assembled a group of 102's and took them to Southeast Asia. Bush volunteered to go. But he needed to have 500 [flight] hours, but he only had just over 300 hours so he wasn't eligible to go,” Morrisey recalls.

Johnny Walker Red has been digging around today and has discovered that folks have been covering this story for some time now. Captains Quarters had it last month. Hobbs Online had it here yesterday and here more than a year ago. Powerline had it Friday. This one is being thoroughly debunked all over the blogosphere.

Go check out Johnny's summary on the subject.


Weekend football picks...

It's yet another big football weekend - here's your incredibly murky crystal ball to this weekend's action.

In semi-pro --- er --- college ball, Tennessee will throttle Louisiana Tech, but not cover the spread, mainly due to La Tech running back Ryan Moats. Tennessee 34, La Tech 14. Elsewhere, Alabama 24 Arkansas 17 - Brodie Croyle's backup is no slouch. Florida 51, Kentucky 14; Michigan 31, Iowa 10; Notre Dame 21, Washington 18.

After going 1/5 in the pros last week, this week can only get better. Titans 27 Jaguars 17; Colts 34, Packers 17 (sorry Lisa & Leo - they're playing indoors - Favre hates that, doesn't he?); Raiders 28, Bucs 20; Vikings 31, Bears 21; Broncos 26, Chargers 21.

In other NFL news, perpetually stoned running back Ricky Williams now has $8.6 million less to spend on weed. Someone may want to start a dope fund for him.

The John Kerry Comedy Hour featuring John Kerry

For all of Lurch's many inconsistencies and waffling positions, one thing he's been consistent about is his penchant for unintentional comedy.

This was in full force in Lurch's address to the sycophants at Temple University in Philly this morning. Actually, the CNN story doesn't make it clear if they're reporting on a speech to be given at Temple or if they received an advance copy of the speech via their DNC faxline.

The CNN story, in fact, is filled with accidental comedy bits. To wit:

"Our goal is that at the end of that, people will say, 'This guy will seek and defeat the terrorist,'" said spokesman Mike McCurry. (sic)

I don't think the people are ever going to be saying anything remotely resembling that, but good try, McMuffin. Onward with Lurch's keen commentary:

Kerry planned to outline his strategy against terrorism on Friday, a day after telling The Columbus Dispatch that the president's actions in Iraq and elsewhere show Bush masquerading as a mainstream conservative while pursuing extremist policies.

"I don't view these people as conservatives," Kerry said. "I actually view them as extreme, and I think their policies have been extreme, and that extends all the way to Iraq, where this president, in my judgment, diverted the real war on terror -- which was Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda -- and almost obsessively moved to deal with Iraq in a way that weakened our nation, overextended our armed forces, cost us $200 billion and created a breach in our oldest alliances."

Point by point, Lurch & John Boy have already laid out their strategy against terrorism - cut, run, hide and hope we don't get hit. Then, after we suffer another slaughter, they'll really go after those terrorists by begging the U.N. for a strong resolution condemning Al Qaeda.

Lurch does veer into some truth here, though. President Junior's administration has been anything but conservative. He's right about that, but not in the way he implies. Additionally, Lurch rolls out the tired old blather about how Iraq is diverting us from the war on terror - when in reality, the war in Iraq is part of the war on terror. This, of course, is too complicated for most liberals to comprehend. There's more:

To douse the spread of terrorism, Kerry proposes policies aimed at denying individuals and groups the ability to organize and attack.

What he means is that groups like the CIA, FBI and Homeland Security will be denied the opportunity to organize - just as they've been denied that opportunity for years now.

Kerry would build a better military and intelligence apparatus to go after enemies, deny terrorists weapons and financing, move against worldwide terrorist havens and recruitment centers, and promote freedom and democracy in Muslim nations.

Build a better military? Just like he has by voting against every important weapons system and military bill since the 1980s? Promote freedom and democracy in muslim nations? Like President Bush is already doing in Iraq? Hilarious!

Kerry has repeatedly argued that the war in Iraq has distracted attention and resources from the pursuit of terrorists, including Osama bin Laden.

Meanwhile, terrorists from all over the middle east are streaming into Iraq, making themselves available as targets for our military - you'd think this might help us in the war on terror. Not by Lurch's ill-logic.

I know Lurch & John Boy didn't start out intending to be a two-man comedy troupe, but that's certainly what they've become.

Time out for wrestling

And Lance Russell rings the bell... 10 minutes gone, 20 minutes to wrestle... the rank smell of the Memphis Mid-South Coliseum... the good old days...

Legendary wrestling manager and Hollywood writer/actor Scott Bowden's Kentucky Fried Rasslin column this week analyzes a new course at Penn State called "The Professional Wrestling Industry: The Business and Spectacle of Populist Sports-Entertainment." More:

Pin State: According to a recent course catalog, Penn State is offering a course on The Professional Wrestling Industry: The Business and Spectacle of Populist Sports- Entertainment. The catalog describes the class as: "An examination of the history and current popularity of professional wrestling. We will examine the major companies, the behind the scenes workings of the business, the relationship between the Internet and the current "boom" in the business (Bowden: that should be interesting), and important issues that surround the business. One need not be a "fan" (Bowden: i.e., "mark") of the pro-wrestling industry to study it. Students will have a chance to meet guest speakers from the pro-wrestling industry (Bowden: Who...Johnny Valiant?) as well as attend some live events. Required texts: A three-month subscription to one of the industry newsletters (we'll do this on the first day of class), access to cable TV (to watch 2 hrs. per week of pro wrestling) and willingness to make extensive use of the Internet. No wrestling required."

It's a good thing they included that last disclaimer. In fact, after the controversial first semester in which the class was offered, more disclaimers were added: 1. Foreign objects are strictly prohibited. 2. Further, you cannot carve your initials onto your desk or onto anyone else's forehead. 3. Hitting your instructor with a folding metal chair will result in an automatic failing grade. 4. The final exam will take place within the confines of a steel cage.

The title of the course reflects what I'm sure is the department's disdain for "Joe Six Pack" and "Johnny Lunch Pail" - whenever you hear the word populist, you know you're about to be condescended to. In this case it may be completely warranted.

I wish they had this at my institution of lower learning when I was in school because I wouldn't have skipped a class, lest I miss an essay on the lineage and character development from Gorgeous George to the Exotic Adrian Street.

Having known Bowden for some years, and having worked with him in a community-outreach program in Memphis called the "Cougars," I can attest that he is a man of unimpeachable character and even if you're not a rasslin' fan, you would do yourself a favor by reading Bowden's column every week.


Cheney tells Kerry to go F--- himself

Well, not really, but that would be sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

Cheney did, however, come out today and attack Kerry for his lack of respect for visiting Iraqi interim leader Iyad Allawi.

Speaking in Columbus, Ohio, shortly after Allawi's speech, Kerry said the interim Iraqi premier was painting an unrealistically upbeat picture of the situation in his homeland.

Kerry's comments drew a sharp rebuke from the vice president just 40 days before Americans go to the polls on November 2 to cast their presidential ballots.

"I must say I was appalled at the complete lack of respect Senator Kerry showed for this man of courage when he rushed to hold a press conference and attack the prime minister, a man America must stand beside to defeat the terrorists," Cheney told an audience in St. Joseph, Missouri.

"John Kerry is trying to tear down all the good that has been accomplished, and his words are destructive to our effort in Iraq and in the global war on terror.

"As Prime Minister Allawi said in his speech, and I quote, 'When political leaders sound the siren of defeatism in the face of terrorism, it only encourages more violence,'" Cheney added.

At least Kerry is being consistent - all he ever preaches is defeatism and negativism. His outlook for the country is so incredibly bleak that you wonder how the bastard gets up in the morning. Oh yeah, he's a billionaire.

Back to Allawi, the left continues to discredit Allawi by calling him a "puppet" and a Bush stooge. To be perfectly frank, I hope he is. The Iraqi government should be following our lead on most issues, and not the other way around. It's nice to have elections, and it's nice to tout democracy, but democracy will not flourish until the hammer comes down on the islamofascists controlling pockets of the country. And until there is stability, Allawi should lead, with some strong guidance from Iraq's liberators.

9/24 UPDATE:

Chad from In the Bullpen has an excellent post regarding Kerry's decision to skip Allawi's speech to congress yesterday (much like he skipped the vast majority of intelligence committee meetings during his continuing nightmarish tenure as Senator).

Following Allawi’s address, Both Allawi and President Bush held a press conference outside the White House where they gave the media in attention better news than has been reported. Among revelations that came out that I was not aware of is that 15 of 18 provinces inside Iraq are considered safe and ready to proceed with elections. 50,000 Iraqi troops have been trained and another 50,000 will be fully trained by January.

It would stand to reason that it’s better to get information on the country from the mouth of the Prime Minister of Iraq, however not to John Kerry. While the majority of congress was in this joint meeting, Senator John Kerry was in a firehouse in Columbus, Ohio ready to try to trump Allawi’s comments with this week’s stance on Iraq...

There is not one mention of any border in Allawi’s address. The bulk of the address is Allawi thanking the United States for our sacrifice and explaining why he feels this effort is both worth it and has made the nation more safe.

In several of Kerry’s ill-advised stumps, he has scripted the comments well in advance and this is no exception. Of course one would have hoped he would have scripted his comments regarding “Lambert” Field where the Green Bay Packers play. Instead of practicing and writing his stump speech to counter Allawi’s comments, Senator John Kerry should have been at the joint session of Congress. Kerry is still an elected official in the United States Senate, though his attendence record is more than appalling.

Religion of beheadings

Is this the best islam has to offer? More beheadings? How are so many of these hood-wearing islamofascists still living in the year 750 A.D.? What kind of sub-human gutter-dwelling shit-scum could behead any of these people - who came to Iraq to either rebuild the infrastructure - or, in the case of the two Italian women, work with charitable organizations helping Iraqi kids?

This type of homocidal dementia is so foreign to civilized society that it's nearly impossible to comprehend.

As fully expected, the Jack Hensley beheading video has been released, and Rusty Shackleford has it. Again, make sure you have the stomach for such things. I'm sure plenty of people think it's morbid to link to such horrific video - but I agree with Rusty - these videos need to be seen by the ignorant unwashed masses in this country who are still in denial about the EVIL we're up against. And make no mistake, this is EVIL incarnate. I realize that most of you liberals can't understand that, but try really hard and maybe you'll get it eventually.

Reports are out now that suggest Simona Pari and Simona Torretta were beheaded and that a video will be forthcoming. If this comes to pass, it will be a new low, even for this pile islamofascist human debris.

Don't you think it's long past time to take the politically-correct gloves off, Mr. President?

How not to discipline a child

15-year-old found chained to bed railing at home in Lebanon (TN).

Lebanon police officers found a malnourished 15-year-old boy chained to a bed railing at his parents' home Tuesday, police officials said.

The boy's father, James Osborne III, and his stepmother, Christie Osborne, were charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect and were in jail as of yesterday afternoon, Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen said.

The teen "was in a very poor condition," Bowen said. James Osborne "said it's been going on for several months. He knew it was wrong."

Bowen said the father gave a statement that "he'd head for work in the morning and the boy would be chained, and he'd come back home from work and the boy would be chained. The mother said he (the boy) was a troublemaker."

Bowen said the teenager has been forced to sleep on a mat on a hardwood floor or directly on the floor surface.

He usually was naked or wore a diaper, he said.

Turner said that based on the preliminary investigation, the boy was fed only soup and water.

Two allegations of minor physical abuse were made against the family in 2001 and 2003, Turner said. DCS case managers visited the family both times and found no evidence to support those allegations, she said.

I realize that some people may call me "mean-spirited", but I hope both parents in this case spend the rest of their lives in prison - and spend a majority of that time being abused by fellow inmates.


Religion of Peace murders two Italian women

Purveyors of the Religion of Peace™ today killed two Italian women they had been holding hostage for weeks. These two had committed the crimes of (1) being Italian and (2) coming to Iraq to work on projects benefitting Iraqi children.

There is no hell hot enough for these bastards.

The trouble with journalists

For those of you who haven't been following the Rathergate story too closely (that includes me), here is an excellent piece on CBS producer Mary Mapes. She was the intermediary between the DNC's Joe Lockhart and professional Texas curmudgeon Bill Burkett - Allah has a good post on this connection.

The AP article has a quote about Mapes that demonstrates the problem with the state of so-called objective journalism in this country:

"She definitely was someone who was motivated by what she cared about and definitely went into journalism to make a difference," Carlson said. "She's not the sort of person who went into journalism to report the news and offer an array of commentary."

This, unfortunately, is often the primary motivation with journalism students. They want to make a difference. Translated, that means they want to bring to the profession their myopic world view and hatred for the "establishment" and bring down as many rich, white, heterosexual, male conservatives as possible.

This study by the Media Research Center demonstrates that this is not merely anecdotal evidence. The fact that 9 out of 10 journalists admitted to voting for Clinton in 1992 is just one example of how leftist ideology runs through the journalism world like a fast-spreading cancer.

Mapes is a shining example of the media elites' tendency to allow their ideology to infect the way they create, report and slant the news in the favor of whichever cause-of-the-week-obsession they're pushing. Sometimes the bias isn't in what is said or written, but in what stories the news broadcast or newspaper covers and which stories get the highest profile and most atttention.

In a USA Today story, Burkett said he agreed to turn documents impugning Bush's service - widely considered now to be fake - over to CBS on the condition CBS would help arrange a conversation with the Kerry campaign. Burkett's lawyer, Gabe Quintanilla, said he could not immediately confirm that Tuesday.

CBS acknowledged Mapes passed on Burkett's number to Kerry adviser Joe Lockhart, and Lockhart called him. Spokeswoman Kelli Edwards said CBS wasn't aware that this was part of any deal, but it's one of the things that will be examined by an independent commission CBS will soon appoint to look into the incident.

In Mapes case, she has a history of manufacturing the news and acting as go-between in an effort to create stories. Via Fox:

It is also not the first time that Mapes has agreed to be a go-between in a controversial setting. FOX News has obtained a letter written to Mapes by the warden of a high security federal prison in Colorado.

He accused the CBS producer of concocting a scheme to help secretly pass information between convicted white supremacist Peter Langan (search) and another federal prisoner, a violation of federal regulations.

"Phone monitoring reveals that you agreed to this request," the letter reads. "Your attempted misuse of the special mail privileges placed members of the public at risk."

I'm certain none of this is unique to CBS.

Still, it's a lapse in journalistic ethics if true, said Marvin Kalb, senior fellow at Harvard University's Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy.

"Journalists do all kinds of odd things these days to get a news story," Kalb said, "but one of the things they should not be doing is paying the price of a political contact."

Well, who's going to put them in journalist jail? The press police?

The funniest part of the whole Mapes affair has to be this quote:

"It is obviously against CBS News standards and those of every other reputable news organization to be associated with any political agenda," (CBS Spokes-sheep Kelli) Edwards said.

I guess Kelli Edwards hasn't watched the news in 30 or 40 years.

Wictory Wednesday

This little brownshirt spent his Wictory Wednesday slaving away for the man. So much so, that I didn't even get to take a peek at the blogosphere until this evening. I feel so deprived. But, enough bellyachin', cuz it's Wictory Wednesday.

This Wednesday - we're asking for help for Mel Martinez in his Florida Senate race. Mel has a very interesting background - he escaped Cuba as a child and has worked his way up to serving as HUD secretary under George W. Bush. He's lucky Janet Reno wasn't A.G. when he came to the U.S. or he would have been exported back to Cuba at gunpoint. You can show your disdain for Reno and her ilk by donating to Mel's campaign and push him over the top in Florida against wealth-redistribution specialist Dim-O-Crat Betty Castor.

Here are your Wictory Wednesday bloggers...


Democrats are cowards, installment number two

(via Jeff Quinton)

Decorated U.S. soldier attacked at Toby Keith concert.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A local soldier back from the war in Iraq said he was beaten at an area concert because of what was printed on his T-shirt, NBC 4's Nancy Burton reported.

Foster Barton, 19, of Grove City, received a Purple Heart for his military service in Iraq. He almost lost his leg last month after a Humvee he was riding in ran over a landmine.

Barton said he was injured again Friday night in a crowded parking lot as he was leaving the Toby Keith concert at Germain Amphitheatre. The solider was injured so badly that he can't go back to Iraq as scheduled.

"I don't remember getting hit at all, really," said Barton, a member of the 1st Calvary Division. "He hit me in the back of the head. I fell and hit the ground. I was knocked unconscious and he continued to punch and kick me on the ground."

Barton and his family said he was beat up because he was wearing an Iraqi freedom T-shirt.

Apparently, this brave attacker turned and ran into the crowd and managed to slither away. It's just like a liberal to take a cheap shot from behind, then run away. Perhaps it was the same brave union thug who tore up a 3-year-old's sign? Same mentality, that much is certain.

Foster Barton was scheduled to return to Iraq, but will now be delayed due to the injuries suffered in the attack. Foster's mother had a pretty good response for the attacker:

Barton's mother said she has a message for her son's alleged attacker, who police said ran into the crowd after the incident and was not arrested.

"He needs our prayers, just like the insurgents, because he's a coward," Cindy Barton said.

Well, that analogy is a bit off base - because what the insurgents need is to be annihilated - but the sentiments are accurate - this assailant is a coward that would never try to take on a soldier like Barton head-on. Hopefully someone will turn him in or at least give him a good ass-kicking.


In the Bullpen has a more rational, less belligerent take on the issue:

People need to learn to put political and ideological differences aside, on both sides of the fence, and just be Americans. Be proud of our country. Be proud of our soldiers that defend our freedoms.

Well put.

In Search of Utopia and The Politicker have also thrown their hats in the ring.

Beheadings continue

(via Rusty Shackleford)

Fox News and the Associated Press are both reporting that American hostage Jack Hensley has been murdered.

News is still fresh and more is expected to come out shortly and I'm sure there will be photos and/or video. More updates to come.


Diggers Realm asks "where is the muslim outrage over these beheadings?" I'd like to know as well.

Johnny Walker Red says that his opinion hasn't changed since yesterday's beheading. My angry comments still apply as well.

Armies of Liberation has a heartbreaking plea from Hensley's family.

Blogs of War is on the case.

Backcountry Conservative - both Jeff Quinton & his guest blogger Chad Evans have weighed in.

I hope the bastards that committed these acts are captured and tortured before they are killed.

"We must have separation of church and state! Unless we need the black vote!"

Michael Reagan recently penned an excellent editorial about how the left preaches (pun intended) the separation of church and state every chance they get - yet, during an election year, they use the pulpit as their personal squawk box like nobody's business.

In New York, former President Bill Clinton took time out from the European leg of his book tour to come back to address the congregation at the ultra-liberal Riverside Memorial Church, where he dissected President Bush's faith.

"I believe President Bush is a good Christian," he said. "I believe that his faith in Jesus gave him new purpose and direction to his life but that doesn't mean that he doesn't see through a glass darkly. It doesn't mean that you can have a bunch of people acting on your behalf and pretending that you don't know them. To say that the seven people who were on John Kerry's Swift Boat don't know what they're talking about when they say he deserves the Silver Star, the Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts."

That is false. President Bush never said that about John Kerry. If anything the president has praised Kerry and the medals he received. On a number of occasions he has said that John Kerry served with honor and praised his service to his country in Vietnam.

It reminds me of when Al Gore bounced from black church to black church during the 2000 election, imitating every street preacher he'd seen in the movies, but still coming off like a maniacal sci-fi robot with fried circuitry.

It gets worse. While that was going on in New York, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Democrat National Chairman Terry McAuliffe were desecrating the pulpit at Miami's New Birth Baptist Church.

The Rev. Sharpton got the congregation revved up by resurrecting the Democrat's favorite slander that the 2000 election was stolen by the Bush campaign – a charge proven false by a long investigation by a consortium of the nation's top newspapers, most of them near-house organs of the Democrat party.

"We're not people who are going to be beat twice," he stormed.

Not to be outdone in politicizing the pulpit, McAuliffe told the worshippers: "Bush has misled us for four years and will not mislead us for the next four years. Get out to vote and we'll send Bush back to Texas."

This is the Democrats' idea of separation of church and state. This is the Democrats' idea of how to worship God on Sunday. Lie your teeth out.

I've often wondered why the leaders in these black churches allow these charlatans to come into their houses of worship and condescend to their congregations, spoon-feeding them the same failed liberalism they've been spewing since LBJ.

In contrast, at my church on Sunday, we did what worshippers are supposed to do. We prayed. We prayed for the suffering people in the Sudan, for our Christian brothers and sisters being butchered by Muslim fanatics in that stricken country. We prayed that we and the rest of the world will be free from terrorist attacks.

There wasn’t a word about politics. And not a single lie was told.

So, while the left uses the pulpit any way they see fit - pushing their agenda down the throats of the unwashed masses along with their Communion, other conservative-leaning churches are being infiltrated by federal and local snoops, hanging on every word - just waiting to take away the church's tax-exempt status in the name of federal election law.

A plan to monitor the political activism of Wichita's conservative churches began this weekend with two people reviewing a morning worship service at the city's largest congregation.

Rose Rosenwach and Susan Kadison of Mainstream Coalition/The Interfaith Alliance Wichita were the group's first "assessment team" to conduct a review, visiting a morning service at Central Christian Church, 2900 N. Rock Road. They are watching for infractions of a law that bans tax-exempt churches from endorsing political candidates.

Rosenwach and Kadison sat, stood and applauded with the congregation, citing a need to blend in. They also took notes and listened intently to speakers during the 90-minute service.

This organization, which the article referred to as "non-partisan", is like a group of 6-year-old tattletales, ready to run to the government with tales of how churches are engaging in hate speech and political partisanism because they don't agree with the group's agenda. Did I mention they're non-partisan?

The group tends to support issues such as gay rights and objects to overt attempts by any religious group to convert someone to another faith.

Among the group's complaints is the way dozens of conservative churches in Wichita lobbied state officials earlier this year to ban gay marriages in the Kansas Constitution.

In this election season, they think some churches have lent support to candidates opposing gay marriage in ways that raise ethical and legal questions.

When you hear the press use the term "non-partisan", you can bet your ass it's a leftist group. The media is quick to label any middle-of-the-road or conservative group as "right-wing".

Pay close attention this year as you'll hear of leftist politicians getting a free pass as they blather on at leftist churches all over the country - meanwhile, the federal snoops and spies may very well be sitting next to you at your own church - especially if (God forbid) your church doesn't tow the government-approved line of liberal Christian orthodoxy.


Another beheading

American hostage Eugene Armstrong beheaded by islamofascists.

Once again, an infidel Westerner, who came to help rebuild Iraq's infrastructure, has been murdered in the name of the islamofascists' "god". In the world of radical islam, no good deed ever goes unpunished.

Rusty Shackleford has images and a link to the video depicting the beheading - watch at your own risk - the images and video are horrific and should be considered very seriously before viewing.

Blogs of War has a Reuters translation of what these miserable sub-human fucks said before executing Armstrong:

Reuters translates part of the statement read before the murder: “Oh, you Christian dog Bush, stop your arrogance … the mujahideen will give America a taste of the degradation you have inflicted on the Iraqi people,” (This message for Christian Dogs is brought to you by the Religion of Peace™)

After viewing the pics (I can't stomach the video), I have realized how desensitized I've become to the news of beheadings and mass murder coming out of Iraq. The shock and disgust from the Nick Berg & Paul Johnson videos dissipated after a while and I'm ashamed to admit that I've become numb to the realities on the ground in Iraq.

This human debris suffers from the same mental illness that enabled a handful of Saudis to kill more than 3,000 Americans in one day in 2001. This is the same insanity that enabled the rape, torture and murder of children in Russia just a few short weeks ago. This is the enemy we face - they would behead us all if given the opportunity. This is the death cult of radical islam that Kerry & Edwards say are no threat to us. Fine, go watch these beheadings, go watch what they did in the Beslan school and then continue your deranged apologist vomit.

Right on Red points out something that should be seen as an opportunity rather than a problem:

Concerning the influx of foreign terrorists into Iraq, the Iraqi PM says:

Terrorists are coming and pouring in from various countries into Iraq to try and undermine the situation in Iraq. They’re coming from Afghanistan, Pakistan, from Europe, from Morocco, from Syria and so on.

Iraq is on the front line of fighting these terrorists. And, God forbid, if Iraq is broken or the will of Iraq is broken, then London would be a target, Washington will be a target, Paris will be a target, Cairo will be a target, as we have seen in the past.

Which is exactly why Iraq was the right war in the right place at the right time, and why we cannot retreat.

With scores of islamofascists pouring in from all across the middle-east, we have a golden opportunity. We have the perfect trap already set, and they're taking the bait, just like the homicidally demented mental midgets that they are - the more of them that pour into Iraq, the more we should be able to annihilate en masse. However, if President Bush continues to fight a politically-correct half-war, we will squander this opportunity, setting ourselves up for failure, and putting our fighting men and women needlessly at risk.

If they hole up in a mosque - destroy it. If they take over a "holy city" - destroy it. Failure to take advantage of this opportunity will result in more bloodbaths in American cities and elsewhere. These beheadings are merely a taste.

Pep talk!

Don't feel down, moonbats. Your bloated hero has come to give you a pep talk! You guessed it, Michael Moore, the feces-encrusted fraudulent film-maker has put down his bucket of fried chicken long enough to attempt to rally the troops!

Via "Mike's Message":

Enough of the handwringing! Enough of the doomsaying! Do I have to come there and personally calm you down? Stop with all the defeatism, OK?

Shit! He's gonna come down here?!? Where we little non-millionaire working-people-types are? That is frightening.

Bush IS a goner -- IF we all just quit our whining and bellyaching and stop shaking like a bunch of nervous ninnies. Geez, this is embarrassing! The Republicans are laughing at us. Do you ever see them cry, "Oh, it's all over! We are finished! Bush can't win! Waaaaaa!"

Hell no. It's never over for them until the last ballot is shredded. They are never finished -- they just keeping moving forward like sharks that never sleep, always pushing, pulling, kicking, blocking, lying.

Yep, that's all those nasty Republicans do is lie. Good catch there, Captain Corpulent. The Dim-O-Cracks never lie and are pure as the new-fallen snow.

They are relentless and that is why we secretly admire them -- they just simply never, ever give up. Only 30% of the country calls itself "Republican," yet the Republicans own it all -- the White House, both houses of Congress, the Supreme Court and the majority of the governorships. How do you think they've been able to pull that off considering they are a minority? It's because they eat you and me and every other liberal for breakfast and then spend the rest of the day wreaking havoc on the planet.

Well, only 30% of the country calls itself Republican, but the majority of the country (myself included) consider ourselves independent conservatives. Most of us are pragmatic enough to put aside our ideology and vote against whichever pants-shitting socialist the Dim-O-Cracks put up every four years. Personally, I'm a little bit offended when I'm referred to as a Republican, because all the national Republican party has become is socialist-lite. But I digress, back to Moore's call to arms!

Look at us -- what a bunch of crybabies. Bush gets a bounce after his convention and you would have thought the Germans had run through Poland again. The Bushies are coming, the Bushies are coming! Yes, they caught Kerry asleep on the Swift Boat thing. Yes, they found the frequency in Dan Rather and ran with it. Suddenly it's like, "THE END IS NEAR! THE SKY IS FALLING!"

No, it is not. If I hear one more person tell me how lousy a candidate Kerry is and how he can't win... Dammit, of COURSE he's a lousy candidate -- he's a Democrat, for heavens sake! That party is so pathetic, they even lose the elections they win! What were you expecting, Bruce Springsteen heading up the ticket? Bruce would make a helluva president, but guys like him don't run -- and neither do you or I. People like Kerry run.

Now there's where we agree. Lurch is a horrible candidate - and the fact that the Dim-O-Crat power structure made him the nominee unarguably demonstrates that they want a Bush victory to set the table for a Hitlery Clinton candidacy in 2008. It's pretty obvious. Otherwise, they'd have nominated an actual contender instead of a lying cartoon character.

My friends, it is time for a reality check.

1. The polls are wrong. They are all over the map like diarrhea. On Friday, one poll had Bush 13 points ahead -- and another poll had them both tied...

Agreed - I'm not paying attention to the polls either. The only poll I'm interested in is the one that comes out on election night after all the polls are closed.

2. Kerry has brought in the Clinton A-team. Instead of shunning Clinton (as Gore did), Kerry has decided to not make that mistake.

But they had a smooth-talking rapist-candidate they could count on to deliver the message.

3. Traveling around the country, as I've been doing, I gotta tell ya, there is a hell of a lot of unrest out there. Much of it is not being captured by the mainstream press. But it is simmering and it is real. Do not let those well-produced Bush rallies of angry white people scare you. Turn off the TV! (Except Jon Stewart and Bill Moyers -- everything else is just a sugar-coated lie).

Don't listen to angry rich white people. Especially gargantuan ones like Michael Moore.

4. Conventional wisdom says if the election is decided on "9/11" (the fear of terrorism), Bush wins. But if it is decided on the job we are doing in Iraq, then Bush loses. And folks, that "job," you might have noticed, has descended into the third level of a hell we used to call Vietnam. There is no way out. It is a full-blown mess of a quagmire and the body bags will sadly only mount higher. Regardless of what Kerry meant by his original war vote, he ain't the one who sent those kids to their deaths -- and Mr. and Mrs. Middle America knows it. Had Bush bothered to show up when he was in the "service" he might have somewhat of a clue as to how to recognize an immoral war that cannot be "won." All he has delivered to Iraq was that plasticized turkey last Thanksgiving. It is this failure of monumental proportions that is going to cook his goose come this November.

It's comical how quick the left is to discount the threat of terrorism. Even John Boy mentioned how the threat of terrorism has been exaggerated to generate fear to sway voters. They live in a state of denial - even after 9/11 brought the reality of the threat home, they continue to deny that the threat is real. Lurch voted for the war - so yes, Large One, he did send the troops over to Iraq - he simply tried to take away their weapons once they got there.

So, do not despair. All is not over. Far from it. The Bush people need you to believe that it is over. They need you to slump back into your easy chair and feel that sick pain in your gut as you contemplate another four years of George W. Bush. They need you to wish we had a candidate who didn't windsurf and who was just as smart as we were when WE knew Bush was lying about WMD and Saddam planning 9/11. It's like Karl Rove is hypnotizing you -- "Kerry voted for the war...Kerry voted for the war...Kerrrrrryyy vooootted fooooor theeee warrrrrrrrrr..."

Yes...Yes...Yesssss....He did! HE DID! No sense in fighting now...what I need is sleep...sleeep...sleeeeeeppppp...

WAKE UP! The majority are with us! More than half of all Americans are pro-choice, want stronger environmental laws, are appalled that assault weapons are back on the street -- and 54% now believe the war is wrong. YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO CONVINCE THEM OF ANY OF THIS -- YOU JUST HAVE TO GIVE THEM A RAY OF HOPE AND A RIDE TO THE POLLS. CAN YOU DO THAT? WILL YOU DO THAT?

Just for me, please? Buck up. The country is almost back in our hands. Not another negative word until Nov. 3rd! Then you can bitch all you want about how you wish Kerry was still that long-haired kid who once had the courage to stand up for something. Personally, I think that kid is still inside him. Instead of the wailing and gnashing of your teeth, why not hold out a hand to him and help the inner soldier/protester come out and defeat the forces of evil we now so desperately face. Do we have any other choice?

Why yes, dimwitted sheep, you do have another choice - the right choice - Bush/Cheney.

Blogrolling fixed?

As you've probably noticed since Thursday, my blogrolls have been up, then down, then up, etc. The folks at Blogrolling migrated servers on Thursday, which caused much chaos.

Thankfully, I just received an email from their support letting me know that everything should be functioning correctly again. Looking at my blogrolls, you can finally see which blogs are updated recently, which I rely on more than I realized. Many folks have been yapping about this throughout the weekend. Hopefully this is the end of Blogrollgate and we can get back to memogate or whatever gate is in the news this week.

Football follies

Well it was another ugly week of football picks. I didn't do so badly in the college games - going 4/5 - missing on the Ohio St./NC St. game. Bad news for Nathan's Tide, with the loss of Brody Croyle for the season.

The mighty Vols, however, pulled it out in the last second - what a story of sports-related redemption! Wilhoit misses an extra point, leaving the score 28-27 Gators with 3 minutes left. The Vol defense gave Wilhoit another chance by stopping Florida and forcing a punt. Freshman QB Eric Ainge got the Vols down to the 33 yard line, setting up a 50-yard field goal to win it and Wilhoit splits the uprights. From goat to hero in no time flat. What a sweet win - and even sweeter because it happened to the Gators.

I couldn't have done worse in the pros. I went 0/4, and I'm now confident that Minnesota will win tonight's game at Philadelphia. That will leave me an abysmal 0/5 on the weekend. I am ashamed of my picks and of my Titans' poor performance against the Colts.

In other NFL news, Mrs. Holmes astutely pointed out that every team had a 40 decal on their helmets and asked me what that might mean. As I suspected, according to NFL.Com, it was a weekend-long tribute to former Arizona Cardinal Pat Tillman, who was killed in action in Afghanistan earlier this year. There was a tribute to Tillman at this weekend's Cardinals/Patriots game - including video messages from President Bush & John McCain.

You may remember how Marxist cartoonist Ted Rall thought Tillman's death was amusing.

Pot, meet kettle

This weekend, John Boy Edwards, took a break from channeling the spirits of deceased infants, and gave another rousing campaign speech near Philadelphia.

John Boy is plum ticked off that Speaker of the House Denny Hastert made the following observation:

"I don't have data or intelligence to tell me one thing or another, [but] I would think they would be more apt to go [for] somebody who would file a lawsuit with the World Court or something rather than respond with troops," Hastert said of Kerry.

Asked by reporters whether he believes al Qaeda could operate better with Kerry in the White House, Hastert replied: "That's my opinion, yes."

"Instead of attacking Republicans, John Edwards should help John Kerry explain to the American people his inconsistent and contradictory positions on national security, intelligence and other defense issues," Hastert spokesman John McGovern said Sunday.

John Boy is offended that Hastert has the nerve to point out the obvious - Al Qaeda will be much better off if Lurch wins the election. Their philosophy is the same as that of their fellow travelers in the U.S. - anybody but Bush. He got so gosh-darned riled up that he responded with a press release accusing Hastert of being dang un-american.

One clear sign of weakness and failed leadership is when a politician stoops to the politics of fear. In the last twenty- four hours Dennis Hastert, the Speaker of the House, has joined the fear mongering choir. Last night, he said something to the effect that Al Qaeda wants John Kerry to be President of the United States. Let me say this in the simplest possible terms: when John Kerry is President of the United States, we will find Al Qaeda where they are and crush them before they can do damage to the American people.

Yeah, I believe that. When I think national security, the word Democrat is the last one that comes to mind.

So while John Boy was hollerin' about "fear mongering," what was Lurch's sister doing? Why, drumming up some fear mongering of her own in Australia!

John Kerry's campaign has warned Australians that the Howard Government's support for the US in Iraq has made them a bigger target for international terrorists.

Diana Kerry, younger sister of the Democrat presidential candidate, told The Weekend Australian that the Bali bombing and the recent attack on the Australian embassy in Jakarta clearly showed the danger to Australians had increased.

"Australia has kept faith with the US and we are endangering the Australians now by this wanton disregard for international law and multilateral channels," she said, referring to the invasion of Iraq.

Asked if she believed the terrorist threat to Australians was now greater because of the support for Republican George W. Bush, Ms Kerry said: "The most recent attack was on the Australian embassy in Jakarta -- I would have to say that."

So let me help you with leftist hypocrisy definition example #4179B:

  • Republican Fear Mongering = BAD
  • Dim-O-Crack Fear Mongering = GOOD

Citizens United has put together a film documenting the lies, distortions and other bilge that Michael Moore, Al Gore, Lurch & John Boy and the rest of the anti-war left have been putting out for the last few years. You should go view the trailer here.

WARNING: The trailer does briefly show footage from some of Saddam's torture videos, so if you've got a weak stomach, it may not be for you. It's footage of actual torture - not the Abu Ghraib panties-on-the-head-style group sex torture.

Monday morning roundup

It was a slow weekend for blogging, but plenty is going on, as you probably already know.

First, CBS is now admitting that "they were mislead" on the National Guard memos.

Mr. Rather interviewed Mr. Burkett on camera this weekend, and several people close to the reporting process said his answers to Mr. Rather's questions led officials to conclude that their initial confidence that the memos had come from Mr. Killian's own files was not warranted. These people indicated that Mr. Burkett had previously led the producer of the piece, Mary Mapes, to have the utmost confidence in the material.

It was unclear last night if Mr. Burkett had told Mr. Rather that he had been misled about the documents' provenance or that he had been the one who did the misleading.

And it doesn't really matter to CBS anyway, does it? They were able to get their story out - in fact, they were able to get TWO full stories out on 60 Minutes that were based entirely on false information and forged documentation. What is most disappointing about this whole affair is that - not only did Rather & Co. pull a broadcasting hoax, I'm confident that there will be no real repercussions for Rather or CBS.

They will come out with some statement containing a pseudo-admission of guilt, then they'll move on, concocting the next campaign flim-flam - one with less loose ends, I would imagine - in support of their chosen saviors, Lurch & John Boy. No matter what else comes out, or how much bloggers and alternative news outlets try to hold CBS' feet to the fire, nothing will come of this. I'll still be listening to contrived drunken colloquialisms from Dan Rather on election night in November, and to quote Jocelyn Elders, "that bothers me."

In other news, is anyone else offended by Madonna's pilgrimage to Israel this past week? Surely no one with one eye and a lick of sense buys this bullshit. It's disappointing that Israeli officials were so quick to lick her boots on this trip, but as the article points out, they need tourist dollars in a desperate way.

Israel hopes the star - the biggest pop celebrity to visit in years - will revive tourism battered by four years of violence, and government officials were on hand at a Tel Aviv hotel to share the spotlight, the glory and the photographs.

She made it clear, however, that she's only there to find out what Israel keeps doing to make people hate the Jews with such a passion.

Speaking without notes, Madonna said the people she met during her five-day Holy Land trip "have one thing in common - we want to create peace in the world."

"We want to put an end to chaos and suffering," she said, "but most of all we want to put an end to hatred with no reason."

The singer said she was not representing a religion. Rather, she said, "I'm here as a student of kabbala. A kabbalist sees the world as a unified whole. A kabbalist asks why."

Thank God Esther is here! Or whatever the hell her name is this month. This self-absorbed hag learned well from her hero Bill Clinton, however, imitating his performance at the Ron Brown funeral:

Led by a rabbi, Madonna and her small entourage recited blessings over food and wine, drank from small plastic cups and circled the raised stone grave. Toward the end of the ceremony, Madonna wiped tears from her eyes.

I'm moved. In fact, so much so, that I'm heading for the toilet right now.


Fall has arrived

It is an absolutely beautiful day here in Knoxville. The sun reflects off of the lake nearby...

You can even see the mountains behind the lake through the powerlines behind a nearby neighborhood.

The temperature is in the upper 60s, and we're heading down to the Tennessee/Florida game tonight. It's the kind of day where you don't want to think about politics, current events, socialists, bedwetting union thugs, islamofascists, or any other ugly reality of life. Therefore, I ain't gonna.

Instead, I'm going to enjoy this fantastic early fall day, play with the kids, and get ready for the game by watching even more football. I figure I've earned some escapism. I don't know quite how, but what the hell.

And what game day preparation is complete without a trip to the package store...

Join me and put your worries aside for the day. Booze it up and go tackle a complete stranger in their front yard. They won't mind. It's football season.


Well, not everyone here in Knoxville is in as good a mood as me. Johnny Walker Red points out that local leftist celebrity blogger South Knox Bubba became so emotionally overwrought recently that he filled his underpants with bile. Go read his angry post, it's a good example of the left's collective meltdown over the polls, memogate and all the other bad news we "fucking crazies" on the right are creating.

Another Michael Jackson victim's downward spiral. Remember kids, Michael Jackson is a gateway drug. Don't do him!


Weekend football picks

Against the advice of my team of lawyers, and Willie Blind-Lemon Jefferson, I'm going to throw my delicious football picks out there for the public to dine on. I realize I'll never compete with Smooth Jimmy Apollo, but hey, they're free.

First, the college picks. I'm feeling optimisting this week - Tennessee 27 Florida 17. The Vols will win because our QBs are too young and blissfully ignorant to cave in to the pressure. They'll only get worse as Philip Fulmer and Randy Sanders squander Ainge and Schaeffer's collective talent, so enjoy it this year, Big Orange Nation. Other picks: Georgia 41 Marshall 14; Auburn 24 LSU 18; NC State 21 Ohio State 17; and for Nathan, Alabama 78 Western Carolina 2.

Next, the NFL picks. The mighty Titans will squeak by the Colts, 24-22 only because they'll play outside on a soggy field - the Colts hate that. Lisa's Packers will throttle the Bears, 28-14, because the Bears still suck. Other scores: Kansas City 31 Carolina 20; Washington 23 NY Giants 14; Philly 31 Minnesota 24 in an excellent Monday night game.

I'm sure Willie Blind-Lemon Jefferson will let me know how much I suck early next week, and I look forward to it.

Have you seen me?

Chucky, the 1,000 pound gator, has been set free from the zoo by Hurricane Ivan. If you see him, please try to catch him and return him to Gulf Shores (AL) authorities.


More proof: Democrats are cowards

Three-year-old girl has Bush/Cheney sign ripped up by Kerry supporters in West Virginia.

I'm sure these big, bad, brain-dead union thugs thought they'd really done something impressive. Well, at least they picked on someone mentally their own size. Jackasses.

UPDATE 9/17 8:00 AM:

(via Drudge) More proof: Democrats can't debate the issues, most are belligerent drunk philandering miscreants. Long Island man arrested in air rage case after losing political debate with Republican woman. And what is worse to a drunk male dim-o-crack than losing a debate to a woman? A Republican woman at that!?!? I'm sure he was incredulous that any woman could support the Bush campaign, given the fact that they've taken the women's rights movement back to the 1950's.

Husar boarded Flight 849 in Minneapolis on his way from New York to visit some friends in Alaska, his wife, Linda, said yesterday. Officials said Husar, a supporter of Sen. John Kerry, was engaged in a discussion on the upcoming presidential election with a woman seated next to him - a President George W. Bush supporter - when she became turned off by his belligerent attitude and complained to the flight staff.

The woman also did not like that Husar would touch her leg and shoulder when he spoke to her, authorities said. Corona said Husar had "had a few drinks."

Russell Ridd, supervising senior crown attorney for the Manitoba Justice Department, said that when flight attendants approached Husar, he became enraged, deliberately spilling a container of alcohol and engaging in "the boisterous behavior of a drunk."

Ridd said the pilot deemed the situation "a minor emergency" and called for an abrupt landing. An armed marshal sat next to Husar until the plane reached a Winnipeg airport, where Husar was kicked off and promptly arrested.

And what do good liberals do in these situations (because we all know they're never responsible for their actions...)? Sue!

"He's mad as hell," said Husar's Canadian attorney, John Corona, adding that Husar plans to sue the airline.

Love is in the air

Well, Bush/Cheney love in the form of campaign signs in my neighborhood, that is.

Just a day after we got tired of looking at all the Kerry/Edwards: A Weaker America yard signs and put up our own Bush/Cheney sign, 5 more have suddenly appeared on our street.

As of this week, there has been a 7-sign swing. Monday it was 4-0 in favor of Lurch/John Boy - as of this afternoon, it was 7-4 in favor of Bush/Cheney. I'm not a professional pollster, but I am stating unequivocally that this guarantees victory in November.

That being said, here's a little advice for President Junior's campaign: Don't make assertions claiming that Kerry is for big government when you've spent us out of house and home. We're not completely daft. Just talk about the war on terror. It's the only issue that matters and you've got the edge. Keep your mouth shut about all domestic issues. I'm Devious Honey Holmes Flow and I approved this message.

10:45 PM UPDATE: I was just perusing Say Anything, and Rob has opined nearly the same sentiments. Great minds and all that... He also referred to Michelle Malkin's take on Bush's big government affliction.
