Ding Dong! The Bitch is dead. Which old Bitch? The Wicked Bitch!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Bitch is dead.
Wake up - sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked Bitch is dead. She's gone where the goblins go,
Below - below - below. Yo-ho, let's open up and sing and ring the bells out.
Ding Dong' the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Bitch is dead!

Pelosi insisted that Democrats have been committed to fiscal responsibility long before Republicans caught on.

“Pay as you go has been an initiative that has been with us for 30 years,” she said, adding that the rules that Republicans will approve tomorrow will ignore that provision. “Now we have to fight this fight again.”

This image was not only viewed over half a million times, it spawned an entire printing business! Josh from created this shirt for his girlfriend, Danielle. When he showed it to the folks over at Reddit, they fell in love with it (and her). Since then, Josh has been printing shirts, decals, and everything else as his full time job. A few months later, baby Roslyn was born and is doing great.

These are the web site IMGUR's top ten  pictures that,  according to them,  were viewed "over 20 billion times!"  Of the 10, I only saw one (#6  "If you buy a video ...").  If  I was picking the top picture of 2010, and I guess I am, it would be this one, especially in terms of social impact.

As an aside, apropos of nothing, but prolly significant in ways I don't want to know, last night I watched - and enjoyed - National Lampoon's Van Wilder.  What's odd about that is I have in the past tried to watch it about a dozen times, and thought it was stupid.  Never got further than a few minutes.  Sigh. Don't say it.  La la la la la la la la la ... .

One more thing that has no relevancy to anything else in this post.  When the family was gathered for Christmas, I mentioned that I had been watching a lot of foreign films on NetFlix and suggested a Swedish film everyone would prolly love called The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and the sequel The Girl Who Played with Fire .  Responses follow:
  • Greep: Dad, that was like the best selling book of the last decade.
  • Joe: We were so anxious to read the sequel that I stopped in London and bought the British release a full six months before it was available here.
  • MoSup.  I even read it
  • All: Eyes rolling

Fricking Democrats have ruined my life.

.... because the General Assembly has not authorized them to do so.
Everything Ken Cuccinelli needed to learn about confrontation he learned during 14 years of refereeing youth basketball.

"You know every time you blow the whistle, half the people are going to be mad at you," he says.

So it has come as no surprise to Cuccinelli that after an eventful rookie year as Virginia's attorney general, a lot of people are crying foul over some of his calls.

Ken Cuccinelli is central in my mind to why Virginia is a model for how state government should function.  At the top of the list is protecting prerogatives guaranteed by state and federal constitutions.

In 2010, Cuccinelli battled the Environmental Protection Agency on regulations to limit greenhouse gases. He told the state's colleges and universities they can't prohibit discrimination against gays, because the General Assembly has not authorized them to do so. He subpoenaed the grant records of a former University of Virginia climate-science researcher.

He launched the first state challenge to the national health-care overhaul, and won an important early victory as a federal judge in Richmond struck down the mandate requiring individuals to buy insurance. [story]

.... because the
General Assembly has not authorized them to do so.

Can you imagine if the country operated under that principle?  Or even Maryland?  I have no vote in the matter, but I'd like to see Virginia's Gov. Bob McDonnell take Jim Webb's senate seat, with Cuccinelli to Gov.  Wait.  If Virginia doesn't single term-limit the attorney general, I'd like to see the Cooch spend another decade in the position, unless he's made AG of the US.
