Maggie's fine peg

Libtards bite off nose to spite face!

 I was privileged to be watching C-Span one Sunday evening when PM Thatcher rebutted a Liberal silliness with, "What the gentleman is saying is he'd accept the poor being poorer as long as the rich were less rich."  Whoa - by golly here is that clip.  It's exactly  true  of liberals - a.k.a nascent socialists - everywhere.  What made me think of it is this.

On a mission to show that Palin's book is selling much worse than, say, the idea of reading Osama Bin Laden his Miranda rights, the San Francisco Chronicle  interviewed several local booksellers to find out how well sales of "Going Rogue" were not going:

"Our customers are thinking people," said Nathan Embretson, a bookseller at Pendragon Books in Oakland. "They're not into reading drivel."

"Anything like that we wouldn't carry," said clerk Emily Stackhouse at Cover to Cover Books in San Francisco. "We're a small store and it would probably gross us all out. Some things you carry because of freedom of speech, but a book like that is just gross."

Apparently the job of a "bookseller" in and around San Francisco is not so much to sell product, but rather to give comfort to like-minded individuals and convert the remaining unwashed masses to lockstep ideology. Politics trumps profit, even though profit generates the much needed tax revenue, job growth, and consumer spending this state dearly needs.

Andrew Jackson: Good, Evil & The Presidency

I don't remember the channel, but Martin Sheen narrated a KenBurnsesque Documentary on Andrew Jackson last night that fascinatingly paralelled today's politics in many ways.  Some considered him an emporer; he tried to kill America (but actually saved it).....very very interesting.  Watch it if you come across it.  

 You may reach a different opinion, but here it is.

Obama's Chicken Home to Roost

 Where are we headed? Or have we arrived?

No right to run?


  David Harsanyi writing in the Denver Post, Nov. 18:

These days, where you fall on the crucial issue of Sarah Palin tells the rest of us all we need to know about your character. You’re either a:

A) Scum-sucking, terror-loving elitist, or a

B) Radical, tea-bag-loving simpleton.

Yet, believe it or not, one can (as I do) admire Palin’s charisma and roots, appreciate her dissent on the policy experiments brainy folks in Washington are cooking up and at the same time believe she has no business running for president in 2012.

In fact, all you haters out there force me to root for her.

There’s nothing wrong, for instance, with The Associated Press assigning a crack team of investigative journalists to sift through every word of Palin’s book, “Going Rogue” (HarperCollins, November 2009) for inaccuracies. You only wish similarly methodical muckraking was applied to President Barack Obama’s two self-aggrandizing tomes—or even the health care or cap and trade bills, for that matter.

Printed in The Wall Street Journal, page A27

This was a WSJ 'Notable Quotable' yesterday. I don't get it?  Why would Mr. Harsanyi suggest "she has no business running for president in 2012?"  No business?   Why?  Because she's not a natural born citizen?  Not yet 35 years of age?   That calls for an explanation Lucy; one which I'll warrant you'll rupture yourself giving.  She'll run if she has enough support, and she'll win if she gets enough votes.  With no help from ACORN or SEIU. 


Am this be ringin' a bell?
 Listen to this short clip and see if it rings a bell?  My guess is that positive response will come from peeps who attended college on the Atlantic seaboard, and belonged to a fraternity or sorority.

Why in gawd's name I thought of this in the shower just now is answerable only within a space-time continuum I don't understand but know I get up in the morning  now and 10 minutes later it's 11:00 PM WTF?   Anyway, while I've thought about other bands from the 60's, like Phil Flowers who played at the Hayloft in DC (where the drinking age was 18), Doug Clark completely slipped my mind.  It was at a Hot Nuts party I made my stage debut (many others will make the same claim) with my oh-so clever, and as close to raunchy as was allowable, lyrics.

Hot nut, Red hot nuts, \
get 'em any way you can.
See that girl over there named Sue?
She took on me and Santa too.
Yay ... cheer,
drink chug-a-lug

Hot nut, Red hot nuts, \
get 'em any way you can.
See that guy his name is Fred
His girl friend Karen just loves my bed!
Yay ... cheer,
drink chug-a-lug

Usually, about the time the last keg dried up,  the taglines all rhymed with "duck," which was obscenely inappropriate back when  nobody used the f-word in the presence of women.  Anyway, here's Doug Clark's web site.  And here's some memories from a Tar Heel.

Hot nut, Red hot nuts, \
get 'em any way you can.
See that guy named Captain Zero
He's ain't nuttin but a modern day Nero
Yay ... cheer,
Impeach that MoFo

yada yada yada

Contrary to media hype, Sarah Palin is very unpopular

Media Matter tells us why and wonders why she's so popular.
DAVID GREGORY: It's extraordinary, and, I mean, she's extraordinary from that point of view of not just the book. I mean, all this year, it's as if she's like a senator or something. I mean, she issues statements and posts things on Facebook as if she's an incumbent or if she's a candidate for something.

"I have breast implants, and I vote"
Naturally, I have several reactions to the proposed tax.
First, all you plastic surgeons who voted for Barack Obama: Bwahahahaha!

Obama: Godammit, I want some positive press about mandatory Heath Care, and I want it now!
Senate bill no longer than Palin's book, Dems say

The last of the emperors
William Clinton wanted that title; Obama has it.

When is a penny worth a million dollars?
