Superman 2.1

Rent Superman 2: The Donner Cut
What I didn’t know at the time was that Superman and Superman 2 were conceived and shot as a single massive undertaking. ... Another director was brought on who had a different vision of the sequel, one that included bad jokes and removing any trace of characterization or good acting. That was the film we got in theaters.

But in 2006, thanks to popular demand, we finally got a DVD release of Donner’s original. This isn’t just a few different camera angles, about half the film has never been seen and let me assure you, it’s the best half. I saw another review of this release that said if you haven’t seen the Donner cut of Superman 2, you haven’t seen Chris Reeve’s best work as Superman. I think that’s true.


It's been awhile, but I do seem to remember liking #3 better than #2.   - Via Verum Serum (which means "Vermont Syrup" if I remember my Greek)

Pelosi is an idiot


STFU Pelosi

Democrats Emphasize it's Not Over, Pelosi says They'll Keep the Majority

Fox News (blog) - Gretchen Gailey - ‎Nov 2, 2010

“Let’s understand the message,” Pelosi told ABC’s Diane Sawyer. “The message was not, ‘I reject the course that you are on.’ The message is it didn’t go fast enough to produce jobs.” ‎   Nov 3, 2010

Expelling A State

Out Damn State
Tis good to see this idea getting traction

The Human Spirit Before Gummint StepsOn It


The (A) big loser in this election?
George Soros.

The first notable thing is Soros’ funding of the Secretary of State Project — which is basically an attempt to elect Secretaries of State around the country willing to impose Democratic-friendly election laws in an attempt to tilt the playing field in their favor on election day.

Well, yesterday Republicans won 17 of 26 races for Secretary of State taking six of those offices (Arkansas, Ohio, New Mexico, Colorado, Iowa and Kansas) from Democrats. Republicans now control 25 offices to Democrats 22.

And then there was Soros’ backing of a measure in California to put control of redistricting back in the hands of the state legislature, a move that would obviously benefit Democrats. It failed, while another measure to give California’s Citizens Redistricting Commission increased authority over redrawing congressional districts:

Soros- Killing Commies Issue


Today's Cheap Laugh
Keith Olbermann

Olbermann's Daily Day

I really have lately made an effort to ignore the daily Olbermann.  Generating laffs and/or outrage at his expense is, to quote C.  Montgomery Burns, "like stealing candy from a baby."  But this is too precious to ignore. He's written a book.  It consists entirely of transcripts from his television show.  That is watched almost entirely by conservative bloggers looking for tomorrow's Olbermann riposte.  The Daily Caller sums it up nicely in the first few paragraphs of its review.
MSNBC host Keith Olbermann’s new book, “Pitchforks and Torches: The Worst of the Worst, From Beck, Bill, and Bush to Palin and Other Posturing Republicans,” has a lot in common with Olbermann’s daily television show: It’s built around the overwritten, overwrought meanderings of a smart but lazy man better known for anger than substance, who fancies himself an avenger for justice but is really just a thin-skinned tyrant in pundit’s clothing. Also, both feature hilarious images of Keith Olbermann’s face. (LMAO)

There’s a reason “Pitchforks and Torches” so closely resembles “Countdown.” The new book consists entirely of transcripts of Olbermann’s tirades from “Countdown” — what the jacket copy calls “his most potent barrages,” which sounds vaguely disgusting.

The 3 messiest undecided races


The Daily Caller lists its guide to the 3 messiest undecided races. 

  • Washington Senate: The race for Senate between Republican Dino Rossi and Democratic incumbent Patty Murray has yet to be called. Murray currently holds about a 2 percentage point lead with 70 percent of the precincts reporting
Rossi's prospects: Three words: Judge John Bridges
  • Minnesota governor: This three-way race seems headed for a recount. Democrat Mark Dayton leads Republican Tom Emmer by just under 10,000 votes with 100 percent of the precincts reporting.

  • Alaska Senate: With 100 percent of the precincts reporting, write-in candidate Sen. Lisa Murkowski appears to be leading,
WTF?  Have you ever tried to cast a write-in vote?  Lisa Murkowski managed to find 45, 359 who speeled her name correctly.  'Nuff said.
