Happy Halloween

A safe and happy Halloween to all you freaks. Before you gorge yourself on a deadly mix of candy and alcohol, do something good. Rob over at Say Anything has requested that folks pitch in and help support free mammograms to assist with breast cancer screenings. It's a good cause and it will exercise your clicker, so go here and click a few times to help fund free mammograms. Do something good with your clicker instead of surfing porn all day.

Rob has also linked to one of my favorite spooky stories of all time, The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe. Happy freakin' Halloween.


Well, all the trick-or-treaters have gone home to gorge themselves, but I took a picture of the best costume of the night:


Here are our outstandingly carved pumpkins:

And I'll leave you with this exchange with some snot-nosed punk trick-or-treaters.

ME: So who the hell are you supposed to be?
KID IN PISTONS JERSEY AND AFRO: I'm so-and-so Wallace of the Detroit Pistons
ME: Do you get in as much trouble as he does? Doesn't he spend his weekends in jail?
OTHER KID: Hey, what NBA star isn't in jail?
ME: Nice. Happy Halloween, you bastards.


Osama bin Laden is full of shit

By now, I'm sure everyone has seen Osama's new rock video - produced by MTV in conjunction with Al Jizziera - and it's fairly obvious that he's been busy reading the Arabic-translated versions of Atrios and Daily Kos. Drudge has a transcript:

OBL: You American people, my speech to you is the best way to avoid another conflict about the war and its reasons and results. I am telling you security is an important pillar of human life. And free people don't let go of their security contrary to Bush's claims that we hate freedom. He should tell us why we didn't hit Sweden for instance.

I wish they would have hit Sweden. What a bunch of bastards they are.

But we fought you because we are free people, we don't sleep on our oppression. We want to regain the freedom of our Muslim nation as you spill our security, we spill your security.

When I think of personal freedom, the first thing that comes to mind for me is a muslim theocracy. Take a gander over yonder at the freedom women in Saudi Arabia and Qatar have - they're allowed to remove their burkas for a whole 15 minutes a day!

Thankfully, Osama, the camel fucker, is willing to share with us the reasons why we should be slaughtered.

I will be honest with you on the moment when the decision was taken to understand. We never thought of hitting the towers. But after we were so fed up, and we saw the oppression of the American Israeli coalition on our people in Palestine and Lebanon, it came to my mind and the incidents that really touched me directly goes back to 1982 and the following incidents. When the US permitted the Israelis to invade Lebanon with the assistance of the 6th fleet. In these hard moments, it occurred to me so many meanings I cant explain but it resulted in a general feeling of rejecting oppression and gave me a hard determination to punish the oppressors. While I was looking at the destroyed towers in Lebanon, it came to my mind to punish the oppressor the same way and destroy towers in the US to get a taste of what they tasted, and quit killing our children and women.

Yes, those damned Jews had the nerve to defend themselves against attacks from failed arab nation after failed arab nation. In every instance, those filthy Jews kicked ass and showed great restraint in not annihilating the whole of Egypt, Syria and Jordan - not to mention Iraq during the first Gulf War.

But I digress, Osama was busy scolding me for oppressing the poor Palestinians.

OBL: We didn't find difficulty dealing with Bush and his administration due to the similarity of his regime and the regims in our countries. Whish half of them are ruled by military and the other half by sons of kings and presidents and our experience with them is long. Both parties are arrogant and stubborn and the greediness and taking money without right and that similarity appeared during the visits of Bush to the region while people from our side were impressed by the US and hoped that these visits would influence our countries. Here he is being influenced by these regimes, Royal and military. And was feeling jealous they were staying for decades in power stealing the nations finances without anybody overseeing them. So he transferred the oppression of freedom and tyranny to his son and they call it th e Patriot Law to fight terrorism. He was bright in putting his sons as governors in states and he didn't forget to transfer his experience from the rulers of our region to Florida to falsify elections to benefit from it in critical times.

Osama is regurgitating the DNC's conspiracy theories, just in time for the election. Well done! I can just picture Osama sitting in a puddle of his own filth, in his dirty nightshirt, watching Fahrenheit 9/11 over and over and over again on his Betamax.

OBL: We agreed with Mohamed Atta, god bless him, to execute the whole operation in 20 minutes. Before Bush and his administration would pay attention and we never thought that the high commander of the US armies would leave 50 thousand of his citizens in both towers to face the horrors by themselves when they most needed him because it seemed to distract his attention from listening to the girl telling him about her goat butting was more important than paying attention to airplanes butting the towers which gave us three times the time to execute the operation thank god.

He really has been watching Fahrenheit 9/11 over and over! I knew Michael Moore was aiding and abetting the enemy, but this is approaching collusion! Johnny Walker Red has an outstanding post today regarding Michael bin Moore - he is also incredulous at bin Laden's lack of creativity and use of DNC talking points in his latest video.

So how can we avoid more attacks from the likes of Bin Laden?

OBL: Your security is not in the hands of Kerry or Bush or Al Qaeda. Your security is in your hands. Each state that doenst mess with our security has automatically secured their security.

So, if we bend over and take it long and hard like the cowards in Spain, everything will be alright. Luckily, Osama, that's not how we operate, and you're time will come. In the meantime, the rest of your associates will continue to be reduced to greasy stains in the desert - this is the only way to actually reduce the threat.

Osama's assurance sure sounds a lot like the hijackers when they told the passengers, "sit down and be quiet and everything will be ok."

While Kerry's position will be to simply sit down and be quiet, the majority of Americans are better represented by the brave passengers of Flight 93, and Osama may have inadvertently given quite a lift to the Bush campaign in the campaign's closing weekend.

While some Americans have joined you, Osama, most of us haven't forgotten you and we will take great pleasure in watching the dogs pick at your eviscerated remains when your day comes.


Another October surprise?

The International House of Jawas is reporting some new Swift Vets news is set to come out at some point this afternoon or this weekend. Sounds like it could be more bad news for Lurch & his boy wonder - we'll have to wait and see.



That's the Jawa's message in response to the Bin Laden tape this afternoon. It's a fantastic post - no time to get into the details because I'm on my way to see TEAM AMERICA (F--- Yeah!) but go read it now. Six Meat Buffet joins Rusty in demanding that Al Jizziera be wiped off the face of the earth.

The Rubik's Cube of terror

Federal agents come down hard on Oregon toy merchant in terror-related clampdown.

ST. HELENS, Ore. - So far as she knows, Pufferbelly Toys owner Stephanie Cox hasn't been passing any state secrets to sinister foreign governments, or violating obscure clauses in the Patriot Act.

So she was taken aback by a mysterious phone call from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to her small store in this quiet Columbia River town just north of Portland.

Her crime? Selling the terror-inspired copyright-infringing Magic Cube - an obvious knockoff of the 80's favorite Rubik's Cube.

When the two agents arrived at the store, the lead agent asked Cox whether she carried a toy called the Magic Cube, which he said was an illegal copy of the Rubik's Cube, one of the most popular toys of all time.

He told her to remove the Magic Cube from her shelves, and he watched to make sure she complied.

How does all this relate to the War on Terror?

Virginia Kice, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said agents went to Pufferbelly based on a trademark infringement complaint filed in the agency's intellectual property rights center in Washington, D.C.

"One of the things that our agency's responsible for doing is protecting the integrity of the economy and our nation's financial systems and obviously trademark infringement does have significant economic implications," she said.

Is this a good use of Homeland Security resources? I suppose that's in the eye of the beholder.

Six weeks after her brush with Homeland Security, Cox told The Oregonian she is still bewildered by the experience.

"Aren't there any terrorists out there?" she said.

Good question, Stephanie.

FYI, neither of these cubes should be confused with the People's Cube.

Kerry's unendorsements

Beautiful Atrocities has a great round up of Lurch's unendorsements from media and hollywood elites. Their enthusiasm for Lurch & John Boy runs so deep, you may or may not get your shoes wet.

IRS taking a hard look at NAACP race-baiter Julian Bond

The IRS is looking into a speech by NAACP Chairman Julian Bond that may have violated federal laws regarding tax-exempt organizations and political activism.

WASHINGTON -- The Internal Revenue Service is investigating whether a speech by NAACP Chairman Julian Bond last summer that criticized the Bush administration violated a federal law that prohibits tax-exempt charitable organizations from engaging in most forms of political activity.

Bond said he felt the probe was politically motivated and meant to have a chilling effect on the NAACP, in particular its efforts to register black voters, who support Sen. John Kerry overwhelmingly.

Bond is wrong, IRS Commissioner Mark Everson said.

"The IRS follows strict procedures involving the selection of tax-exempt organizations for audit and resolution of any complaints about such groups," Everson said. "Career civil servants, not political appointees, make these decisions in a fair, impartial manner."

In a letter outlining the alleged violations, the IRS cited a federal law that prohibits tax-exempt charitable organizations "from intervening in any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office."

This is a nice start, but it's more than likely a case of too little too late. Lurch, John Boy and Bubba have been bouncing from black church to black church - all of whom I'm sure enjoy tax-exempt status - vomiting their race-baiting anti-Republican rhetoric without any consequence. The IRS should be investigating these churches and their leaders as well.

While "independent" groups are visiting churches as undercover agents making sure that right-leaning churches' sermons are politics-free, charlatans like Jesse Jackson and [enter leftist race-baiting politician here] continue to get away with murder.


Colin Powell, shut your yap!

Colin Powell warns Israel not to use force against Iran.

(Via al Jizziera)

Secretary of State Colin Powell warned Israel on Wednesday that diplomacy and not force is the best way to deal with Iran's nuclear program.

Powell said that he had no information on rumors that Israel might launch pre-emptive strikes on Iranian nuclear reactors.

He said that "there was a lot of speculation and horror stories and other stories about what this might lead to in the way of crisis and part of that speculation is that the Israelis might do something or not do something."

"I have no information on that," Powell said.

If Israel decides to go and annihilate Iran's nuclear program by whatever means they deem necessary - we should send them flowers, not get in their damn way.

Please tell me that Colin will be gone during the second Bush term.

Blog breakfast

First of all, I must wish the lovely Mrs. Holmes a happy anniversary. I love you! Thanks for tolerating me all these years.

The big story this morning - via Right on Red - continues to be Russia's involvement in the moving of weapons before the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March of 2003. JWR was on this last night when Drudge broke the story, and while I'm not shocked by Russia's involvement, I am surprised by the depth of their involvement with Hussein right up to the end.

Russian special forces troops moved many of Saddam Hussein's weapons and related goods out of Iraq and into Syria in the weeks before the March 2003 U.S. military operation, The Washington Times has learned.

John A. Shaw, the deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security, said in an interview that he believes the Russian troops, working with Iraqi intelligence, "almost certainly" removed the high-explosive material that went missing from the Al-Qaqaa facility, south of Baghdad.

"The Russians brought in, just before the war got started, a whole series of military units," Mr. Shaw said. "Their main job was to shred all evidence of any of the contractual arrangements they had with the Iraqis. The others were transportation units."

JWR obtained an exclusive interview with a fly on the wall at Karl Rove's Republican Death Star HQ that is worth reading. Is Rove really this brilliant, or is it more catastrophic stupidity on the part of the Lurch camp?

LGF has news about another weapons cache that you should know about. And you won't be too surprised that Kerry's home country of France is in on the coverup. (via Jawa Central)

Meanwhile, out in space...

There are more eclipse photos here, if you're interested. It was pretty spectacular from our vantage point.

Elsewhere, in a Palestinian hellhole, Arafat appears to be on his deathbed. Some rocket scientist over there realized that perhaps Palestinian doctors weren't going to be very effective in helping ol' Yassir, so they've hauled in some Jordanian medics to help out. I hope it's not a quick expiration for Arafat - it needs to be a long, drawn-out, very painful road to an eternal dirt nap.

Well, better get to work. Hopefully Blogger will function properly today - I'm not counting on it, though.


Damn you, Blogger.

I spent far too much time today trying to get Blogger to function, which resulted in the flinging of expletives around the office and the gnashing of teeth. As a result, I'm planning on making some changes around this place. I'll keep you posted, so you won't be caught off guard and have a damn stroke.

In other news, I'm about to dust off the old Canon SLR camera and see if I can get a shot or two of the lunar eclipse that's about to take place. There's much to blog about, but I'm fed up with it tonight. Go watch the eclipse.


Dizzy Girl (she has the best blog design going right now) is currently eclipse blogging. Photos and all. Pay her a visit.

Arafat soon to meet his maker?

Yasser Arafat, international terrorist and glorified icon of the United Nations, collapsed Wednesday, and is apparently in seriously ill health.

Arafat was eating soup during a meeting with Qureia, Abbas and another official between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. (2 p.m. or 3 p.m. EDT) when he vomited, according to a bodyguard who was in the compound at the time.

The 75-year-old Arafat was brought to the clinic inside the compound, where he collapsed and was unconscious for about 10 minutes, the guard said. His doctors were urgently summoned.

On news that Arafat's health was worsening, scores of top Palestinian officials descended on the sandbagged, partially demolished Ramallah compound where he has been confined for 2 1/2 years. The officials milled around the courtyard, waiting for news outside Arafat's three-story building, bathed in spotlights.

I hope this is the beginning of the end for Arafat. He should have been pushing up daisies years ago at the hands of the Israeli government.

The streets will run with blood, but don't sweat it

According to Drudge, ABC News is holding (back?) a new terror warning tape.



In the last week before the election, ABCNEWS is holding a videotaped message from a purported al Qaeda terrorist warning of a new attack on America, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

The terrorist claims on tape the next attack will dwarf 9/11. "The streets will run with blood," and "America will mourn in silence" because they will be unable to count the number of the dead. Further claims: America has brought this on itself for electing George Bush who has made war on Islam by destroying the Taliban and making war on Al Qaeda.

ABCNEWS strongly denies holding the tape back from broadcast over political concerns during the last days of the election.

The CIA is analyzing the tape, a top federal source tells the DRUDGE REPORT.

ABCNEWS obtained the tape from a source in Waziristan, Pakistan over the weekend, sources tells DRUDGE.

"We have been working 24 hours a day trying to authenticate [the tape]," a senior ABCNEWS source said Wednesday morning.

The terrorist's face is concealed by a head dress, and he speaks in an American accent, making it difficult to identify the individual.

A top goverment source tells DRUDGE, US intelligence officials believe the man on tape may be Adam Gadhan - aka Adam Pearlman, a southern California native who was highlighted by the FBI in May as an individual most likely to be involved in or have knowledge of the next al Qaeda attacks.

According to the FBI, Gadahn, 25, attended al-Qaida training camps and served as an al-Qaida translator.

The disturbing tape runs an hour -- the man simply identifies himself as 'Assam the American.'


Michelle Malkin has more information on Adam Gadahn, the turncoat and star of the video.

The last Wictory Wednesday has come

Well, there's not much left to do but vote. I early voted last Thursday. See, here in the great freedom-loving state of Tennessee, you can do that. There is more info on early voting in your area here.

If you know any morons who are still on the fence and you can convince them to vote Bush/Cheney, get them to the polling place. Drag their worthless asses down there. Otherwise, encourage the Kerry-leaning voters you know to stay home. It might be raining out there, plus their vote is probably wasted in [Enter State Here], according to the polls.

Here are your Wictory Wednesday bloggers...


Can consertive be this stupid?

I couldn't let this comment die in the archives. Here is the original post from way back in August: Leftists Recoil at 9/11 Images.

The comment is from Lenny. I don't quite know what the hell he was talking about, but it looks as if it could qualify as performance art - it is included without modification.

Your in a street braul with a bunch of your buddies. Some guy with a bat bashes in one of your friends head. You and your buddies surround him and are just about to pounce on him (lets call him Osama Bin Laden). When some other firend shows up (lets cal him George Bush). Says hey everybody lets go over here and beatup these guys because they are ass holes too. You and your buddies turn and start fighting with these other ass holes. Now who's fault is it if the guy that you had just sorrounded comes back with the bat comes back and clobbers you on the back of the head?

Can consertive be this stupid?

Maybe someone else can explain what he's talking about.

October surprise falls flat on its face

I'm a little late to the party here, but when I first heard this story yesterday, I didn't think much of it. However, when I heard this morning that the story first broke in April of 2003, it took on a completely different complexion.

The short version is that the Old Media shockingly reported yesterday that 380 tons of conventional explosives where missing from an ammo dump near Baghdad. One critical oversight was that they left out the details of when these explosives went missing.

The story was a rehashing of an April 2003 story about how the explosives were removed before we ever got to Baghdad. This new version of the story has been on hold until they could generate some new angle (in this case, a phony letter from the United Nations) to re-report the story, just before the election, and with just enough ambiguity to make the story appear to be "breaking news".

The implication here is that Bush's leadership of the war resulted in severe incompetence because he didn't safeguard weapons that weren't there, which is exactly how Lurch framed it on the campaign trail yesterday.

Now Drudge is reporting that the NY Times, CBS and the LA Times were colluding about how best to break this story and help the Lurch/John Boy campaign.


News of missing explosives in Iraq -- first reported in April 2003 -- was being resurrected for a 60 MINUTES election eve broadcast designed to knock the Bush administration into a crisis mode.

Jeff Fager, executive producer of the Sunday edition of 60 MINUTES, said in a statement that "our plan was to run the story on October 31, but it became clear that it wouldn't hold..."

Elizabeth Jensen at the LOS ANGELES TIMES details on Tuesday how CBS NEWS and 60 MINUTES lost the story [which repackaged previously reported information on a large cache of explosives missing in Iraq, first published and broadcast in 2003].

The story instead debuted in the NYT. The paper slugged the story about missing explosives from April 2003 as "exclusive."

An NBCNEWS crew embedded with troops moved in to secure the Al-Qaqaa weapons facility on April 10, 2003, one day after the liberation of Iraq.

According to NBCNEWS, the explosives were already missing when the American troops arrived.

It is not clear who exactly shopped an election eve repackaging of the missing explosives story.

The LA TIMES claims: The source on the story first went to 60 MINUTES but also expressed interest in working with the NY TIMES... "The tip was received last Wednesday."

CBSNEWS' plan to unleash the story just 24 hours before election day had one senior Bush official outraged.

"Darn, I wanted to see the forged documents to show how this was somehow covered up," the Bush source, who asked not to be named, mocked, recalling last months CBS airing of fraudulent Bush national guard letters.

It's nice to see the Old Media getting caught red-handed this election season. This is the kind of media collusion, bias and fraud that has been foisted upon the public for decades - and it's becoming clear that they can't get away with this shit anymore.

The Old Media still tries to masquerade as an unbiased watchdog - what they are is an old, diseased dog that needs to be taken to the vet and put to sleep.

Plenty of folks are already on this case:

Right on Red - NBC vs. NYT; KE04 SOL
Say Anything - The Iraq explosives non-story
Protein Wisdom - Oh no you di-ent
Ace - The New York Times and CBSNews: House Propaganda Organs of the DNC
Backcountry Conservative - Missing explosives facts
Wizbang - Explosives vanish into thin air
In the Bullpen - Tons of explosives missing in Iraq
The Captain - 380 tons of explosives missing - but when?

Bubba returns to save the day for W

With only a week to go until Election Day, America's first black president returned to the political stage yesterday to help his party's zombie-candidate Lurch. This is not good news for Lurch.

The Old Media is touting this as the second coming of Christ, but anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of recent history knows that Bubba has risen from the dead to sink Lurch's ship on Hillary's behalf. They were laying it on thick in Philly yesterday:

In a blizzard of confetti and a storm of cheers, Bill Clinton walked back onto the political stage in Philadelphia yesterday to tell Americans that good times will return if they give John Kerry his old job.

"From time to time I've been called the Comeback Kid," Clinton said. "In eight days, John Kerry is going to make America the comeback country."

Brilliant. It was truly a rock-star like scene as the drooling crowd tossed bras, panties and boxer shorts at the candidate and his impeached sidekick.

He was greeted with a roar from nearly 20,000 people passed through security into Philadelphia's aptly named Love Park. Many thousands more - as many as 80,000, according to the fire marshal - packed the surrounding streets straining for a glimpse of Clinton and Kerry.

Clinton spoke with less vigor than usual and looked drawn - and was about 12 pounds lighter, according to aides - but he could not hide his joy at getting back into harness after being laid up for seven weeks following the surgery.

"If this isn't good for my heart, I don't know what is," Clinton said, looking out on the sea of faces.

Bubba reminded them that he alone was responsible for their employment.

"In Pennsylvania alone, you've lost 70,000 jobs, as compared with the 219,000 you gained by this time when that last fellow was President - me," Clinton said.

He also made sure to remind the crowd that he is far wealthier than they are.

He slammed Bush for giving tax cuts to "upper-income people like me" and running up the debt, "leaving the burden of the deficit for my tax cut on the children of this country."

On the surface, this simply looks like an impeached ex-president rising from the ash heap of historical shame to help boost the candidacy of a wayward son. However, the Marxist Hag Hillary wants the decks cleared in 2008, which is why Bubba has appeared to Dukakize Lurch's candidacy.

If you'll think back to the mid-term elections during Bubba's first term - after the failure of HillaryCare™ and the implementation of one of the largest tax hike in history - everywhere Bubba tried to help out a candidate, they went down in flames. This resulted in the GOP gaining control of the House for the first time in decades.

This pattern continued in 1998 and 2000 - wherever Bubba went, candidates went down (in some cases, the candidates had their interns go down on their behalf).

If you'll recall, the relationship between Bubba and Al Gore was always tense - never moreso than during the 2000 election. One has to wonder whether or not that friction came from Gore wanting to keep Bubba the hell away from his campaign, or whether Gore was begging Bubba for help and Bubba refused. Only John Edwards' hairdresser knows for sure.

In my opinion, Bubba's resurrection seals the deal for a Bush win. We'll know soon enough whether I'm right or wrong.



Jeff at Beautiful Atrocities says that he cannot support President Bush.

A blog quickie

Due to circumstances beyond my control (i.e. work, no internet connectivity, real life), blogging has been light over the weekend and this morning. However, here are a few quick items of note before I head back into the damned conference room to deal with mountains of nitwittery.

First, I've changed my e-mail address - it is now preston-at-sixmeatbuffet-dot-com. I'll still be using the g-mail account (sixmeat-at-gmail-dot-com) when I need to, but the new e-mail address will be the best to use if you feel the need to yell at me.

Next, Elizabeth Edwards says that she will call off her planned race riots if we will all vote for Lurch and her ambulance-chasing husband. Too bad I've already voted or I would take her advice and switch sides.

Also, LaShawn Barber has returned from a brief hiatus. Don't leave us again, LaShawn. Some of us clanging cymbals need a blog-conscience.

Johnny Walker Red has gotten fisked for the first time. I hope he's okay.

The Jawa Report notes that more terrorists are endorsing Kerry. At least they know which side has their best interests at heart.

There's so much more out there, but this little brownshirt has to get back to work. More to come...


The lovely Mrs. Holmes has just asked me "what the hell is fisking?" Samizdata has a good definition:


verb. To deconstruct an article on a point by point basis in a highly critical manner. Derived from the name of journalist Robert Fisk, a frequent target of such critical articles in the blogosphere (qv).

Usage: "Orrin Judd did a severe fisking of an idiotic article in the New York Times today..."

I tend to do too much fisking probably. Although fisking Michael Moore's pep-talk last month was particularly fun. Easy target though.


Gameday football picks

As Mrs. Holmes and I prepare for gameday festivities and a trip to Neyland Stadium to watch the Vols embarrass the Crimson Tide (sorry Nate), I am reminded that I missed football picks last week so I better get them in quick this morning.

In today's college matchups, Tennessee will beat Bama 31-21 due to Bama's injury-depleted ranks. Elsewhere, Georgia 29, Arkansas 19; Auburn 44, Kentucky 14; Purdue 24, Michigan 20; Miami 27, North Carolina St. 17.

In the pros tomorrow, it only gets uglier for my beloved Titans. Vikings 31, Titans 20; Panthers 24, Chargers 17; Packers 28, Dallas 17 (hear that Lisa?); Broncos 17, Bengals 12; and in the battle of unbeatens, the New York Jets stop the Patriots' winning streak and win 30-28.


Thou shalt not fling custard at a goddess

Two dumbasses arrested for flinging pies at Ann Coulter at the University of Arizona.

Or as the Smoking Gun quipped, Al Pieda Targets Ann Coulter.

TUCSON, Ariz. - Two men ran onstage and threw custard pies at conservative columnist Ann Coulter as she was giving a speech at the University of Arizona, hitting her in the shoulder, police said.

As is typical with the left - they can't win any arguments based on ideas, so they usually resort to violence.

Lucina Kress, a junior majoring in Spanish, said she and others ran out of Centennial Hall to chase the two men.

Soaking wet from last night's rain, Kress said as a member of the UA College Republicans, she wanted to do her part to capture the men who disrupted Coulter's speech.

"They could have combated her with words, but instead resorted to physical violence," Kress said.

Coulter made light of the situation even after one of the men was taken away in handcuffs.

"From that far away they can't even hit me?" she joked.

I'm tempted to make a crude comment about Ann Coulter and cream pies, but I'll keep it out of the gutter - this time.

Who is endorsing whom?

I hope I don't get cited by the grammar police for that title...

I had been putting together some information on which presidential candidate is getting support from our international "allies" in preparation for a round-up style post. However, I stumbled across Ben Johnson's article over at FrontPageMag, which provides just such a round-up and is an excellent read - so why reinvent the wheel? Some of Johnson's keen observations:

Who is supporting Kerry?

NORTH KOREA - North Korean radio has aired several of Kerry’s anti-Bush speeches, and the Korean Central News Agency has given the Democratic candidate "glowing" coverage.

IRAN - It is undisputed that Kerry has promised to give Iran exactly what it needs right now: nuclear fuel. Kerry pledged to supply Iran with nuclear fuel, just as Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton did to North Korea as it revved up its nuclear program during the 1990s.

RED CHINA - Comparatively speaking, Kerry is noted for being friendly with China. He was once firmly against linking the most-favored-nation status to China with human rights.

ARAFAT - PA foreign minister Nabil Shaath has said in a Kerry presidency, "it would be likely that several staff members during Clinton's administration would return," adding, "that would be a good thing." Conversely, in his 1997 book The New War, John Kerry referred to Yasser Arafat as a "statesman."

Last but not least...FRANCE - The chairman of Democrats Abroad gave the "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech of the 2004 campaign, gushing Kerry "is the closest thing that you will have to a French politician."

Johnson provides more detail than this small sampling - he also includes Germany, Vietnam, Pakistan, Jordan, Malaysia, limp-wristed Spain, among others.

Who is supporting President Bush?

RUSSIA - It seems, since mourning the tragedy of Beslan, Putin has discovered the wisdom of pre-emption.

ISRAEL - Although Yasser Arafat's Palestinian Authority favors John Kerry, the Israelis favor George W. Bush. Israel's military intelligence chief, Major-General Aharon Ze'evi told the Israeli Cabinet he feared, "Arafat is now waiting for the month of November in the hope that President Bush will be defeated in the presidential election and turned out of his office."

JAPAN - The Secretary-General of Japan's Liberal Democratic Party, Tsutomu Takebe, told the media, "I think there would be trouble if it's not President Bush." Takebe said Kerry's plan for bilateral U.S.-North Korean negotiations "would be exactly what North Korea wants."

Johnson also lists South Korea and the Philippines as Bush supporters, and notes that al-Jizziera (sic) television and the Communist Party USA (not to be confused with Communists for Kerry) have thrown their lot in for Lurch as well.

Johnson doesn't list Australia as a Bush leaning country, but given their recent re-election of John Howard, I would count them in Bush's column as well.

While I'm sure that the surrender-socialist American left is tickled to death to have all of weak-kneed Eurabia on their side, I'd rather be in step with the countries that are willing to join the fight against global islamofascism.



Good news from Gaza

(via Chad @ In The Bullpen)

One of Hamas' founders and current military leaders, Adnan al-Ghoul, was killed when hit by a well-aimed Israeli helicopter-fired missile.

GAZA (Reuters) - Israel killed the top bomb maker of the Hamas Islamic militant group in a Gaza Strip air strike on Thursday, days before a key parliamentary vote on Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan to quit the occupied territory.

The assassination of Adnan al-Ghoul, number two in the Hamas military wing and near the top of Israel's most wanted list since 1987, dealt a major blow to Hamas.

It could also help Sharon counter far-right opponents of his pullout plan, who say it would reward Palestinian attacks.

Isn't al-Ghoul an appropriate name for a child-murdering Palestinian piece of human debris? Good riddance, Ghoul, and may many of your comrades meet similar fates at the steaming bottom of a Palestinian Car Swarm.

Breaking News: Kerry wins 2004 presidential election

With lawyers peppered strategically throughout the battleground states, Lurch promises to declare victory on November 2, whether the counting is done or not.

WASHINGTON - Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites), bracing for a potential fight over election results, will not hesitate to declare victory Nov. 2 and defend it, advisers say. He also will be prepared to name a national security team before knowing whether he's secured the presidency.

In short, the Democratic presidential candidate has a simple strategy for Nov. 3 and beyond: Do not repeat Al Gore's mistakes.

The Democratic vice president prematurely conceded the 2000 race to George W. Bush in a telephone call, then had to retract his concession after aides said Florida wasn't lost. He never declared victory, an omission Kerry's advisers — many of whom worked for Gore — now believe created a sense of inevitability in voters' minds about Bush's presidency.

Gore didn't plan for the legal showdown, though few could have predicted it before Election Day. And he watched as Bush seized political advantage during the 36-day recount by publicly discussing a transition to the White House.

Not this time, promise Kerry's advisers. If there is doubt about the results, they will fight without delay.

What's the hold-up Lurch? I mean, why doesn't the bastard go ahead and declare victory now? For the love of Pete, they've already started spouting off their false charges of intimidation and "disenfranchisement". Let's just get the recount started now - plenty of early voting has taken place. What a jackass.

Under the sea, under the sea....

Under the sea, under the sea, they'll be no accusations, just friendly crustaceans, under the sea........

I wouldn't have believed this had I not found the story via several different sources.

9th Circuit Court in San Francisco determines that marine mammals may not sue President Bush for the Navy's use of sonar equipment.

Okay, let's put aside the absurity that the case even made it to a local chancery court - much less up to the 9th Circus. It took these socialist judges 18 pages to explain why these aquatic creatures could not sue the President.

LOS ANGELES -- The world's whales, porpoises and dolphins have no standing to sue President Bush over the U.S. Navy's use of sonar equipment that harms marine mammals, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.

A three-judge panel of the Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in San Francisco, widely considered one of the most liberal and activist in the country, said it saw no reason animals should not be allowed to sue but said they had not yet been granted that right.

"If Congress and the President intended to take the extraordinary step of authorizing animals as well as people and legal entities to sue they could and should have said so plainly," Judge William A. Fletcher wrote in an 18-page opinion for the panel.

The lawsuit was brought against Bush and Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld on behalf of "the cetacean community" -- defined as the world's whales, porpoises and dolphins -- by their self-appointed lawyer, marine mammal activist Lanny Sinkin.

The reason? They can't sue because they had not yet been given the right to sue.

I would have thought the reason might be that they can't talk, write, make phone calls to lawyers - not to mention that they live in freaking ocean. Well, I know the 9th circus has a long history of judicial idiocy, but this is over the top, even for those asshats. Is it any wonder I've lost any faith in our judicial system?

Count Chokeula

Allah has returned just in time to document the biggest collapse in sports history. Even with their enormous payroll and sense of entitlement, the Yanks still got their eyes pounded shut by a bunch of chowder-eating Massholes.

FYI, I don't even watch baseball.

The brilliant term "Count Chokeula" is borrowed from Mrs. Holmes nickname for tennis almost-great Todd Martin...


Theresa Heinz Kerry - idiot bitch

There, I said it. I mean, how stupid must she be to make a comment like this?

"But I don't know that she's (Laura Bush) ever had a real job — I mean, since she's been grown up."

Theresa, you insane, ignorant bitch. You are worth more than a billion dollars - none of which you earned. You simply inherited it - much like the Kennedys, you're a worthless leech who has no place criticizing a woman with the class and character of Laura Bush.

Not only did Laura Bush work as a teacher and librarian, she performed a much more important job of raising two kids. That's a job you couldn't handle, you U.N.-loving globalist elitist shitneck.

You make me want to vomit, you assfaced dingbat.

I feel better. Thanks for listening.


I realized this morning why Heinz-Ketchup's comments pissed me off so much last night. It's an extension of the prevailing attitude among feminists and liberals in general that anything traditional - like marriage, family, women NOT in the workforce - must be ridiculed and, if possible, stamped out.

I know from personal experience that raising a couple of kids is harder than most "real" jobs out in the working world. Since the 1960s, feminists have derided and insulted women who CHOOSE to stay home and raise a family - they've looked down on women who dared take their husband's name. The left has done everything they can to destroy the traditional family structure.

The feminists want choice - only when it comes to dismembering and removing that fetal nuisance from their wretched wombs - any choice that involves preserving the traditional family should be disallowed.

Useless idiots

(via the T-Man)

There is a digital socialist/pacifist collective (well, they're the opposite of us brownshirts, but I can't think of a catchy title for them) out there who have organized a campaign of "apology" pictures for the people of Iraq. Check out their parade of the horribles here.

If you'd like to take a little trip through the deranged mind of the American anti-war left, this is a great place to start. This gallery of drooling idiots demonstrates beyond a doubt that the American left is a group of mentally ill freaks who have brought their status as social pariah on themselves.

In addition, this serves as yet another reminder - don't put your ugly mug up on the web - especially in this kind of context. You open yourself up for well-deserved ridicule and you deserve whatever mockery and humiliation befalls you.

Plenty of folks have already started the predictable exercise of ridiculing these dolts, and I'm no exception. However, I'm going to try and milk it for a while. So instead of shooting my wad all at once, I'll throw up the occasional photo for my own (and hopefully your) amusement. Join in the fun - e-mail me your own photoshopped version of these moronic pictures and if they're good, I'll post them.

Folks piling on with more hilarious mockery: Sean Gleeson, LGF, Silent Running, Mike Jericho,, Dorkafork.


I totally missed Sean's Page of Atonement, which provides links to a whole host of other folks running with this particular ball - including, but not limited to - Lumberjack, Editors in Pajamas, Linda, Watcher of Weasels, Mudville Gazette and Gordo the Cranky Neocon.

Early voting on Wictory Wednesday

Well, that's what I was hoping to do today, but Mrs. Holmes has rescheduled our voting until tomorrow. It's nice to be married to someone who is not going to cancel out your vote. I've heard of so many couples where the husband votes conservative and the wife votes socialist, effectively canceling each other out.

It's nice to be able to negate the votes of some pansy liberal couple driving to the polls in their electric car listening to Ani DiFranco and worrying about the Earth. Do you hear that, liberal married couple? We're making your vote irrelevant!

Back to Wictory Wednesday, this week we're helping Jim DeMint in South Carolina. Only one more Wictory Wednesday left after today. Hopefully the Bush win will be decisive enough that we will know the winner of the presidential vote two weeks from today. Anyone else glad it's almost over? I sure as hell am.

Here are your Wictory Wednesday bloggers...


The prissiest candidate

I saw this over at Michelle Malkin's place this morning. Well, not her place, unfortunately, but her blog. Now you've got me sidetracked. Dammit.

Anyway, I didn't think it was worth blogging about until I actually watched the video (thanks, E.N.) and it's freakin' hilarious.

Go watch the video at Harry Shearer's Slate corner - it depicts John Boy getting ready for a TV interview. The attention he and his primpette pay to his hair is remarkable. In Shearer's words:

"For a guy who's been known derisively to the Bush crowd as the Breck girl," observes Shearer, vice presidential candidate John Edwards seems "way too interested in his hair." He tries to straighten it with his fingers. A makeup technician approaches with a comb, but the senator likes it just so and does the combing himself. He signals he's ready for hair spray by closing his eyes expectantly, like a child. Then Edwards and the technician straighten a little more with their fingers. Please don't tell me that thing in his hand is a compact. Oh, dear. It is.

Just go watch it. It's as funny as it is disturbing. Plus, it effectively illustrates that all that really matters to John Boy the side-show carnie is image and fluff - he has absolutely no substance and comletely lacks any kind of character.

Oh well, at least he has nice hair.


We've got wireless!

This little brownshirt has just entered the rusty age of wireless.

I just had to tell somebody, so I guess if you're reading this, I'm telling you, not that you care.

We've got us a little wireless router in the house now so this newfangled laptop can be used wherever I damn well please in the homestead. I'm blogging from the damn bedroom right now. It's a geek's wet dream, I tell you.

Okay, then, go back about your business. I'll be back to bitching about something or another here shortly.

Global warming disaster claims first home

Mythical instantaneous global warming has claimed its first victim.

CORDELE, Ga. -- A Georgia man facing arson charges for burning his own home is blaming nine or 10 beers, and a disaster movie.

Charles Adams told Crisp County authorities he had been drinking while watching the movie "Day After Tomorrow."

Adams allegedly told deputies that after watching the special-effects extravaganza depicting deadly natural disasters caused by global warming, he decided to set fire to pillows on his bed.

The flames destroyed his doublewide mobile home.

I hope other movie-rental victims learn from Charles' tragic example.

Now, do you REALLY promise to stop that nasty terrorism this time?

Ex-Gitmo detainees are returning to the terror war - and - surprise - this is after they promised to be really, really good.

At least seven former prisoners of the United States at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have returned to terrorism, despite gaining their freedom by signing pledges to renounce violence.

At least two are believed to have died in fighting in Afghanistan, and a third was recaptured during a raid on a suspected training camp in Afghanistan, said Lt. Cmdr. Flex Plexico, a Pentagon spokesman. Others are at large.

Additional former detainees have expressed a desire to rejoin the fight, be it against U.N. peacekeepers in Afghanistan, Americans in Iraq or Russians in Chechnya.

Against U.N. peacekeepers? Who the hell fights against U.N. peacekeepers? Why attack a group that has already hoisted the white flag of surrender? Target practice, I suppose.

U.S. officials released 146 detainees from Guantanamo, but only after determining the prisoners no longer posed threats and had no remaining intelligence value.

Pentagon officials acknowledged that the release process is imperfect, but they said most of the Guantanamo detainees released have steered clear of Islamist insurgent groups.

Imperfect? Really! I'm impressed by this level of candor.

What the hell is going on at the Pentagon? This kind of touchy-feely idiocy is the kind of mentality that will get us all killed. These "detainees" should never have left Afghanistan - they should be pushing up daisies right now with Osama and his cronies at Tora Bora.

If this is how we're going to fight the W.O.T., maybe we should just go ahead and surrender.


Also blogging, Johnny Walker Red & Digger.


Sunday Night Roundup

Well hell, after an 8.5 hour drive, we're back in Knoxpatch. It wasn't so bad, but the thought of getting up to go to work tomorrow makes me want to vomit out my nose and mouth.

So what have I missed today besides an embarrassing Titans loss to the Houston Texans?

Looks like the dim-o-cracks are already cheating down in Florida. So what else is new?

In other unsurprising news, the always fair-and-balanced New York Times has endorsed John Kerry. Heaven forfend! They've really gone out on a limb there.

Johnny Walker Red is trying to rewrite the Alabama Constitution, for crying out loud. Doesn't he have enough to do?

Allah is still on hiatus. Oh where did you go...?

Ace says Usama has been pushin' up daisies for quite some time now. Hell he's almost as dead as Al Gore's brain and John Edwards' integrity.

And I can't get this new Linksys Wireless G-Cable Gateway to be recognized by Win XP Pro. Any advice from you networking gurus out there?

Okay, I'm tired as ass so I'm going to bed.



(Powerline, via Right on Red)

I'm not one who usually advocates violence, but I'd love to slap the teeth out of the mouths of every one of these mental midgets. This just proves (yet again) that liberalism is indeed a serious psychological disorder that requires medical attention. You have to be completely insane to be a Hussein apologist, yet so many useful idiots are just that.


KRS-One: punk-ass racist bitch

(via Drudge)

"Rapper" KRS-One says that blacks cheered on 9/11 when 3,000+ Americans were slaughtered. Mr. One made this comment at a New Yorker Festival panel discussion - undoubtedly a cesspool of like-minded anti-Americanism.

I should have known that Mr. One sucked when he did that shitty duet with Michael Stipe and REM.

The hip-hop anarchist has declared his solidarity with al-Qaida by asserting that he and other African-Americans "cheered when 9-11 happened," reports the New York Daily News.

"I say that proudly," the Boogie Down Productions founder went on, insisting that, before the attack, security guards kept Blacks out of the World Trade Center "because of the way we talk and dress.

"So when the planes hit the building, we were like, 'Mmmm - justice.'"

The atrocity of 9-11 "doesn't affect us the hip-hop community," he said. "9-11 happened to them, not us," he added, explaining that by "them" he meant "the rich ... those who are oppressing us. RCA or BMG, Universal, the radio stations."

I remember having this same discussion with my friend Leo Oshkosh. We agreed that the American left would quickly sweep 9/11 under the rug - and that the majority of the downtrodden would silently celebrate because the people who died in the towers were only rich people and Jews - the two classes most vilified by the left. If you're white, rich, Jewish, heterosexual and male, then you might as well be given the death penalty just for existing in the mind of the American leftist.

Mr. One continues vomiting forth stupidity:

"America has to commit suicide if the world is to be a better place." This comment drew a heated response fellow panelist and former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, who yelled, "That is wrong, man. Suicide is not the answer."

What the hell does that mean? Suicide is not the answer? Why would you ever have a panel discussion with a bunch of rappers & musicians? All you're going to get in a situation like that is brainless nonsense upchucked from one moron to another while the nitwits in the media cheer the "artists'" collective brilliance.

Mr. One and I agree on one thing - get-out-the-vote campaigns are for chumps.

[Mr. One] also sneered at efforts by other rappers to get young people to vote.

"Voting in a corrupt society adds more corruption," he added.

So, Mr. One has unintentionally joined the Six Meat Buffet Stop the Vote campaign.

Other folks commenting on this: Say Anything, Backcountry Conservative, MUSC Tiger, Ramblings Journal, Short Family Online, Right on Red.


Mr. One has responded to his quote being "taken out of context". The only problem is, due to his own stupidity, he just made it worse.

"I was just as saddened as everyone else on 9/11," he continued. "However, for many of us that were racially profiled and harassed by the World's (sic) Trade Center's security and the police patrolling that area as well as the thousands of American protesters that spoke out against the World Trade Organization months before in Seattle, Washington there was a sense of justice, a sense of change, a wake up call watching the twin towers fall."

So, because of the racial profiling allegedly going on at the WTC, it was justice that 3,000 + people were slaughtered. That makes sense to me.

"I was making an objective point about how many Hiphoppas as well as the oppressed peoples of the world felt that day," KRS continued. "I am a philosopher and a critical thinker, I speak truth and I urge people to think critically about themselves and their environment. Yes, my words are strong. Yes, my views are controversial. But to call me a terrorist is simply wrong!"

Well, it's technically true that Mr. One is not a terrorist, because he doesn't have the guts to strap a bomb belt to his waist and go blow up those racial profilers himself. However, for Mr. One to claim that he was taken out of context and then come out with a rebuttal that only exacerbates the situation, makes Mr. One look something less than intelligent.


Six Meat Buffet Education Series: Creative Spelling 101

Miami-area illiterate artist Maria Alquilar was commissioned by the city of Livermore, California to create a mural for the city's new public library. The problem, however, was that she misspelled the names of 11 famous historical and literary figures.

Among the misspelled names: Vincent Van Gogh, Michelangelo and Einstein. You don't have to actually be Einstein to know how to spell his name.

The delicious irony in this story is that the mural is in front of a new library - where, you would assume, literacy is considered important and the correct spelling of words is (or at least used to be) encouraged.

The artist, however, was offended that anyone would dare interrupt her artistic vision with spelling corrections.

"The importance of this work is that it is supposed to unite people," Alquilar said. "They are denigrating my work and the purpose of this work."

Alquilar said it took her quite a bit of her own time and money to create and install the work, and that it sat idle at her Santa Cruz studio for two years until the city cleared the way for its installation.

There were plenty of people around during the installation who could and should have seen the missing and misplaced letters, she said.

"Even though I was on my hands and knees laying the installation out, I didn't see it," she said.

The mistakes wouldn't even register with a true artisan, Alquilar said.

"The people that are into humanities, and are into Blake's concept of enlightenment, they are not looking at the words," she said. "In their mind the words register correctly."

So, just like the NEA's campaign to destroy the public schools has resulted in "creative spelling" at various locations around the country, we should ignore Alquilar's misspellings in the interest of "bringing people together." I guess that should be changed to "bringing illiterate people together".

After the errors were brought to light, Alquilar refused to correct them, bolstering her refusal with claims of "vicious hate mail" sent to her in the wake of her errors.

She has softened her stance (thanks to an extra $6,000 the city has agreed to pay her - plus expenses) and will now travel to Livermore to correct her spelling errors.

Hopefully the correction will happen soon, so that Livermore kids will only be victim to creative spelling lessons in their government school classes instead of on the library steps.

FYI: Rob at Say Anything has been on this story since it broke.

Muslims get out the vote, cheatin' style

Muslim get-out-the-vote unit "pushes deadline".

What the headline should have read was "another leftist group tries to get away with cheating," but this was the Palm Beach Post - the daily rag to the stupidest block of voters in the southeast.

Theresa LePore vowed to close the Palm Beach County elections office at 5 p.m. Monday, the final day to register to vote in the Nov. 2 election, but a young man who arrived about 15 minutes after the deadline managed to drop off 550 applications on behalf of a group of Muslims determined to oust President Bush.

It really doesn't matter if he showed up 1 minute after the office closed, or two weeks after the office closed. He was too late - even if all the registrations he had were actually valid (which is probably a stretch).

LePore said he showed up, carrying a box of applications, about 15 minutes after she locked the door to her office at 5 p.m. She said she told him her office was closed but he could mail the forms as long as they were postmarked by midnight that night.

But, she said, he wasn't satisfied and managed to slip inside the lobby when someone left.

"He started hollering about disenfranchising people," said LePore, who took the box after he thrust it at her.

"Then he started saying, 'You're all alike,' or something to that effect, and 'It's better in New York,' " she said. "And I said, 'Why don't you go back to New York?'"

What he meant, I'm sure, was that "if you're a leftist special-interest group, they let you cheat in New York, because it accomplishes their goals."

Florida is one of five battleground states Muslims have targeted for get-out-the-vote efforts, foundation Executive Director Mahdi Bray said Thursday. VIP recruiters in Florida registered about 7,000 new Muslim voters he hopes will go to the polls on Election Day and vote for Kerry, he said.

Florida has about 120,000 Arab American voters, of whom about 15 percent are Muslim, according to pollster James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute in Washington. The other states VIP has targeted are Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan, which has 235,000 Arab American voters, the largest in the country.

Which is exactly why I don't trust Zogby's polling.

"This administration's policy of preemptive war has destabilized the region," Bray said Thursday. "Many of us who know the region know that this can of worms this administration has opened, this mistaken policy, will haunt the Muslim world for years to come."

Although critical of Bush's decision to invade Iraq, Bray said that, like his peers he is pleased that Saddam Hussein was arrested.

"He's a dictator. He's a thug," he said. "But what we've done to deal with this thug and this dictator is unconscionable."

What we've done to deal with this thug is "unconscionable"? No, what is unconscionable is that there are Hussein apologists out there like Bray who need to to have the teeth slapped out of their mouths for making such idiotic comments.

Secretary of State Glenda Hood and Gov. Jeb Bush had criticized the 527 advocacy groups' voter registration efforts even before recent reports about irregularities with the applications surfaced throughout the state.

Law enforcement officials are investigating complaints, including unauthorized party affiliation changes, bogus voter registrations and forged absentee ballot requests, in St. Petersburg, Tallahassee and Miami-Dade County. A state department spokeswoman confirmed the U.S. Department of Justice is investigation allegations of voter fraud in Florida.

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, pushing the minimum-wage ballot initiative, is under investigation in Miami-Dade County, for possible violations including registering former felons to vote. ACORN workers are cooperating in that investigation, which the group blames on a "disgruntled ex-employee," and another in St. Petersburg, in which the group is accused of changing the former mayor's party affiliation without his knowledge, said spokesman Brian Kettenring.

The dim-o-crats have been working hard this fall, trying to cheat and intimidate their way to victory. Let's hope, for all of our sakes, that it doesn't work.

The John Boy sideshow-carnival-big-tent revival rolls on

(via Drudge)

The John Boy Edwards carnvial sideshow reached more ludicrous proportions in Iowa on Monday as he promised to make the blind see and the lame walk.

Edwards Stem Cell Vision: 'We will stop juvenile diabetes, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other debilitating diseases... When John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going get up out of that wheelchair and walk again.' Edwards made the unprecedented campaign promises during 30-minute speech at Newton High School gym in Newton, Iowa...

I guess we should pay attention when John Boy makes such pronouncements, considering he does have the ability to channel the spirits of dead infants.

You have to wonder if Edwards has added up the additional health-care costs his excessive junk-science litigation has cost the rest of us. Perhaps if his brand of excessive litigation had been scaled back a bit, we would already have cures for these ailments.

Not everyone was amused with John Boy playing fast and loose with medical science. Senate Majority Leader and heart surgeon Bill Frist had some choice words for everyone's favorite ambulance chaser.

Frist, a Republican from Tennessee, called Edwards' remark "crass" and "shameful," and said it gave false hope that new treatments were imminent.

"I find it opportunistic to use the death of someone like Christopher Reeve -- I think it is shameful -- in order to mislead the American people," Frist said. "We should be offering people hope, but neither physicians, scientists, public servants or trial lawyers like John Edwards should be offering hype.

"It is cruel to people who have disabilities and chronic diseases, and, on top of that, it's dishonest. It's giving false hope to people, and I can tell you as a physician who's treated scores of thousands of patients that you don't give them false hope."

But, why would anyone listen to a decorated heart surgeon, when they can listen to the incoherent street-preaching of a foaming-at-the-mouth, ambulance-chasing scumsucking asshat like John Boy?

The Cranky Neocon has his own take on John Boy & Lurch's supernatural powers (via Right on Red).

10/13 UPDATE:

Froggy has some thoughts on John Boy as well - he says candidate, heal thyself.

Bush/Cheney campaign tells union thugs to cut the crap

In an open letter to AFL/CIO President John Sweeney, Bush/Cheney campaign chair Marc Racicot has called for the union thugs to cut the crap.

Dear Mr. Sweeney:

Over the past several weeks, acts of violence and vandalism have occurred at Republican and Bush-Cheney campaign headquarters across the country. In addition to the injuries, property damage and disruption associated with these acts, these events have created a threatening and intimidating atmosphere abhorrent to our democratic process.

The letter goes on to outline many of the events we've already covered - breaking an entering, storming campaign offices, vandalism, theft, the list goes on and on. It's good to see the GOP get off their ass and lay the blame where most of it probably belongs - the union thugs.

Just yesterday, dim-o-crack violence continued in Spokane, WA, where Bush/Cheney offices were broken into, vandalized and a small amount of cash was stolen.

Racicot's letter continues:

I hope you will put an end to protest activities that have led to injuries, property damage, vandalism and voter intimidation. We will hold you and your organization accountable for the actions of your members and urge you to immediately discontinue any coordinated protest efforts that result in damage to our facilities, or injury to people who may hold different political views than your members, but who share an equal right to be involved in the political process without suffering violence, intimidation and threats.

The B/C campaign hasn't done much right so far, but here's an example where someone finally got their head out of their ass long enough to execute a good idea.


Christopher Reeve, RIP

I resisted the urge to take one last shot at Christopher Reeve this morning, when Mrs. Holmes told me of his sudden demise this morning (over bacon, the crunchiest of the six meats).

I was pleased as punch to see that Rusty Shackleford did not show the same restraint and caused me to shoot coffee at my crappy laptop's monitor in heaps of laughter. To wit:

Look, it's not so much that he was a smoothe criminal as the fact that he was a selfish prick who became a martyr, a hero, and a poster child for the Oprah-ization of America.

That's exactly why I've despised the guy ever since his instructional video, "How Not to Ride a Horse for Pampered Celebrities."

It didn't really happen until I watched his speech at the Democratic National Convention in 1996. The two memories I have of that shit-fest were Reeve's essential blaming of the GOP for his paralysis, and Al Gore's shameless use of his dead sister's smoking habits for political gain.

Reeve has been the DNC's poster child ever since - and with good reason - the Dim-O-Crat party does all it can to cripple the country with burdensome over-regulation, blatant class-warfare through the federal tax code and the general crushing of the human spirit via the "great society." It seems to fit that Reeve was their hero. RIP, Superman.


John Kerry, male prostitute

Well, in another fine example of the left's version of separation of church and state, Lurch took his Traveling Socialist Sideshow into a black Baptist church in Miami to pander to a target audience he already has in his back pocket.

MIAMI - With just three Sundays left before Election Day, Sen. John Kerry is asking for all the help he can get from black voters and the Almighty.

The Democratic presidential nominee attended two church services Sunday, instead of his usual one, worshipping first with Haitian Catholics and then with black Baptists, where the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton tied his election to the civil rights struggle.

"We have an unfinished march in this nation," Kerry said at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, as many congregants waved fans handed out by the campaign with his slogan, "Hope is on the way."

"Never again will a million African Americans be denied the right to exercise their vote in the United States of America," Kerry promised, referring to the disputed Florida recount in the 2000 presidential race. As he often does before black audiences, Kerry said he has a legal team that will aggressively respond to any allegations of disenfranchisement.

What a parade of the horribles. Have these people no shame? They spend 364 days out of the year preaching the separation of church and state, and on the 365th, they turn the pulpit into their own squawk box, telling paritioners that if they don't stay on the plantation and vote dim-o-crack that all their rights will be taken away.

Kerry, Sharpton, Jackson, et al, are liars and shameless hucksters who the congregation should run out of the sanctuary on a rail, but instead they dine on their lies like Thanksgiving dinner. I don't know which is worse, the phony reverends or the congregations who allow their places of worship to be turned into dens of political iniquity.


Mrs. Holmes pointed out a quote that I can't believe I missed in this story:

"November 2, the power is in your hands, hands that once picked cotton," Jackson said.

Added Sharpton: "Everything we have fought for, marched for, gone to jail for — some died for — could be reversed if the wrong people are put on the Supreme Court."

This is 2004, not 1964. This race-baiting has gone on for far too long, and these two dinosaurs of the class-warfare movement should be put out to pasture.

10/11 UPDATE:

Michelle Malkin is also asking "where are the separation of church & state ninnies" on this latest church befouling?

Bigley video released

(via Digger)

For those of you who are still on the lookout for the Bigley beheading video, it's out there. Do not watch this video if you're not prepared for the brutal reality of what we're up against with these bastards.

I still agree with Digger & Rusty in that this stuff needs to be seen by those who are in denial about what we're up against in the war on terror.


FYI, in the NY Times this weekend, Lurch referred to these islamofascist murders as a "nuisance".

In Washington, Republican Party chief Ed Gillespie criticized Kerry for saying in an interview in The New York Times Magazine that, "We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance." He appeared to equate terrorism to prostitution and illegal gambling, saying they can be reduced but not ended.

If you want Lurch in charge of the war on terror, then you really do have a screw loose - or you just have a death wish.

South Park boys join the Stop the Vote Campaign

(via Drudge)

Well, not officially, but they've echoed similar sentiments. And guess who is pissed off about it? Everyone's favorite Hollywood miscreant, Sean Penn. Sean must still be bitter about that whole "I Married Madonna and all I got was this lousy Syphilis" incident, because he hasn't shut his whiny yap in quite some time.

From an open letter from Penn to South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Penn blathers:

I do mind when anybody who doesn't have a child, doesn't have a child at war, or isn't or won't be in harm's way themselves, is encouraging that there's "no shame in not voting" "if you don't know what you're talking about" (Mr. Stone) without mentioning the shame of not knowing what your talking about, and encouraging people to know. You guys are talented young guys but alas, primarily young guys. It's all well to joke about me or whomever you choose. Not so well, to encourage irresponsibility that will ultimately lead to the disembowelment, mutilation, exploitation, and death of innocent people throughout the world. The vote matters to them. No one's ignorance, indcluding (sic) a couple of hip cross-dressers, is an excuse.

All best, and a sincere fuck you, Sean Penn

Sean is all bent out of shape because Parker & Stone took a well-deserved shot at P. Diddy's horse-shit "vote or die" campaign.

Stone complains, "I think just saying 'Vote or Die' is a serious danger to democracy. If you don't know what you're talking about, there's no shame in not voting.

"They say if you don't vote, you can't [bleep]. But you can vote all you want. This is America."

Parker adds, "Hey, 19-year-old who doesn't know anything -- you choose!"

This is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. These get-out-the-vote campaigns are self-aggrandizing leftist bullshit and should be mocked, ridiculed, and most importantly, squashed.

But, because Sean Penn went on a first-class field trip to Iraq last Christmas, he is the only one qualified to interject opinion into the realm of political discussion.

P.S. Take this as a personal invitation from me to you (you can ask Dennis Miller along for the ride as well) to escort you on a trip, which I took last Christmas. We'll fly to Amman, Jordan and I'll ride with you in a (?) 12 hours through the Sunni Triangle into Fallujah and Baghdad and I'll show you around. When we return, make all the fun you want.

Thanks for the morality lesson, Sean. I'm sure the boys appreciate it. Incidentally, I'm planning on seeing Team America: World Police. I'm pretty sure it's going to kick ass.

Safe and sound in the Sunshine State - er - Hurricane Alley

Well, I completely missed the debate due to an 8 hour drive, but after taking a quick gander at the blogosphere, it sounds like President Junior did as well as any of us could have expected, and that's good. Real good.

Speaking of the drive, I don't know if you've ever taken an 8-hour joyride with a 2-year-old and an 8-month-old - I'm sure a few of you have - but Preston Jr. and Sally were fucking outstanding. No prolonged periods of screaming, no bouts of whining, throwing of objects, self-mutilation - nothing but completely tolerable behavior. I'm still a little stunned by it, honestly.

Anyway, if Mrs. Holmes lets me, I'm going to go looking for some Hurricane Ivan destruction to take pictures of and possibly post them here if they're interesting enough.

I'll dig into more post-debate reviews and what-not tomorrow. Now I must go pass out.


Weekend football picks

Well, I'm taking a week off from work and traveling all night tonight. This means I'll miss the debate (thankfully), but will check in tomorrow afternoon for a blogosphere round-up of how badly President Junior did. I hope my pessimism is proven wrong, but I'm not optimistic about that.

This weekend's college football: Georgia 33, Tennessee 14 - just wait 'til next year, Dawgs; Florida 27, LSU 17; Oklahoma 24, Texas 20; Bama 17, Kentucky 7; Cal 33 USC 31. The pounding Auburn gave us (the not-so-mighty Vols) last week is only a taste of what we've got coming tomorrow. I can barely look.

Speaking of ugly, my Titans are laying eggs all over the NFL. Now we're going to do it in front of the whole country on Monday night - Packers 19, Titans 14. That's right Lisa, Leo & Kelly, I'm conceding defeat. Elsewhere, Indy 37, Raiders 17; Patriots 29, Dolphins 3; Falcons 30, Lions 21; Broncos 24, Carolina 19.

Kenneth Bigley beheaded

(via Digger's Realm)

Abu Dhabi television is reporting that British hostage Kenneth Bigley has been beheaded by his loving captors.

His crime? Well, really two-fold. Most importantly, being non-muslim. Next, helping to rebuild and modernize Iraq's infrastructure instead of allowing Iraq to swim in a cesspool of 8th-century islamic theocratic squalor like the rest of the middle east.

Bigley also paid the tab for Tony Blair's crime of not following France & Italy's lead in handing over cash for Bigley's release. Updates to follow.


As I suspected, Jawa Central is on the case with frequent updates.

Jeff Quinton at Backcountry Conservative has an MSNBC report that suggests that Bigley may have been killed during an attempted escape.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Two television stations, quoting sources, reported Friday that British hostage Kenneth Bigley had been killed by his captors.

At the Pentagon, meanwhile, U.S. military sources told NBC News that they have reports from Iraq that Bigley might have been killed while trying to escape. The reports indicate that a number of "others" who might have been trying to help Bigley escape were also killed, the sources said.

If this means that there was a rescue attempt and we know where these bastards are, I hope they're all greasy stains on the floor by now. Wishful thinking perhaps.


International House of Jawas reports that Al Reuters acknowledges the existence of a video of Bigley's decapitation.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A video released by Muslim militants shows them beheading British hostage Kenneth Bigley, a Reuters witness says.

Bigley was shown making a statement as six militants stood behind him before one cut his head off with a knife.

Guerrilla sources in the rebel-held city of Falluja said earlier that he was killed on Thursday afternoon in Latifiya, a Sunni Muslim town southwest of Baghdad.

The tape showed Bigley wearing an orange jump suit of the type worn by detainees in U.S. prisons including the detention centre at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.

Al Reuters does not say whether or not it donated one of its cameramen to help with the filming, though speculation is rampant.

Religion of Peace™ strikes again

Attack on Jews vacationing in Egypt kills 30, wounds more than 360.

EILAT, Israel Oct. 7, 2004 — An explosion tore through a resort hotel in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, where Israelis were vacationing at the end of a Jewish holiday Thursday night, killing at least 30 people and wounding more than 160, officials said.

Two smaller blasts were reported later at other tourist sites in the Sinai, and witnesses gave reports that car bombs caused all three explosions. Egyptian officials said they had no evidence of terrorism but that it was unlikely the three blasts could be coincidence. Israel's Army Radio quoted Israeli security officials as saying they were convinced the first explosion was a car bomb.

The explosions came a month after the Israeli government urged citizens not to visit Egypt, citing a "concrete" terror threat to tourists in an area. The warning, issued on Sept. 9 by the counterterrorism center in Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's office, identified the Sinai Peninsula as the target of a potential attack.

The initial blast, about 10 p.m., rocked the Hilton hotel in the Taba resort, only yards from the Israeli border.

"The whole front of the hotel has collapsed. There are dozens of people on the floor, lots of blood. It is very tense," witness Yigal Vakni told Army Radio. "I am standing outside of the hotel, the whole thing is burning and they have nothing to put it out with."

So, don't worry about it. Egyptian officials have said there is no evidence that this was terrorism. Go about your business. Nothing to see here, move along...

10/8 UPDATE:

The death toll stands at 31, and is expected to rise in last night's resort bombing in Sinai.

Once again, the islamofascists continue to spread their blood-soaked love of allah across the globe.
