Gwine back to da cabbage patch

Sweet Schadenfreude

When the 111th Congress adjourns this week, Etheridge will go from being a congressman to being a farmer back in North Carolina.

He began his career in Congress as more of a moderate. In 1997, the American Conservative Union gave him a conservative rating of 32 percent. In 2008, it was zero.

This ol' boy been pitchforked to a turn.  I love that the The News & Observer calls him a "moderate" with a 32% ACU index.  What's the number below which one becomes ... what?  Left-leaning moderate?  Liberal conservative?  Do they even have a term for it?  By the way, in case you're not wanting to read the article, it says "Etheridge was undone by his strong voting alignment with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi .. ."  And the video, of course. 

Instant Watch

That only 13 of you have seen.

that sumbitch Julius Genachowski

Julius Seizure!

Julius Seizure

Is that the best play on words administered whip fashion you've ever seen, or what?  And yes, we hanged that sumbitch Julius Genachowski ( 3,758 times according to the trap-door counter) but he obviously needs some more.  And please allow me to repeat myself; If this was 1950 and you were assigned to describe scenarios that suggest an American government gone bad, and deserving of being overthrown, this was one of the answers. Without absolute freedom of the Internet PRESS, we are slaves.

Nelson at Trafalgar 2009

Nelson: "Order the signal, Hardy."

Hardy: "Aye, aye sir."

Nelson: "Hold on, that's not what I dictated to Flags. What's the meaning of this?"

Hardy: "Sorry sir, you'll have to read this."

Nelson (reading aloud): "' England expects every person to do his or her duty, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious persuasion or disability.' - What gobbledygook is this, Hardy?"

Hardy: "Admiralty policy, sir. We're an equal opportunity employer now. We had the devil's own job getting ' England ' past the censors, lest it be considered racist."

Nelson: "Gadzooks, hand me my pipe and tobacco."

Hardy: "Sorry sir. All naval vessels have now been designated smoke-free working environments."

Nelson: "In that case, break open the rum ration. Let us splice the main brace to steel the men before battle."

Hardy: "The rum ration has been abolished, Admiral. I ts part of the Government's policy on binge drinking."

Nelson: "Good heavens, Hardy. I suppose we'd better get on with it ..................... Full speed ahead."

Hardy: "I think you'll find that there's a 4 knot speed limit in this stretch of water." (Continued)

Tweets from Twits, and some good ones

The 10 most powerful twits of 2010

Obama gets the Winter Palace

Like most of these type lists, The 10 most powerful twits  is way too touchy-feely and irrelevant for my tastes.  Take the Tweet under the Obama-Medveded picture for example (ranked as the #2 most powerful). 

When Russian President joined Twitter, the White House immediately reached out to welcome him to the Twitterverse. Obama’s quote: Red phones no longer required.

Wow, that was certainly groin-grabbingly powerful.  Sarah Palin's Top Ten Tweets, by contrast, were honestly delivered and caused seismic reactions within the  Obamunist-Media Complex community,  So, she wins.

American Farm Team


The brothers’ organization launched in 2008 in a small office in Purcellville, Va., though American Majority has roots dating back to 2005, when the Ryuns drew up a document laying out plans to create a “systematic, year-in year-out, 365-days-a-year approach to identifying and training people to be a national farm team of conservative leaders.”

American Farm Team

One need look no further than Virginia's resurgent conservative All-Star government to realize that something important is happening there. So grab yo' hoes and git to work.
