Michele Bachmann wins first women’s presidential straw poll

Susan Crain Bakos

Rep. Michele Bachmann won the first Women’s Presidential Straw Poll, held at the Smart Girl Summit in St. Louis, Missouri this weekend.

Herman Cain, who spoke at the event, closely trailed Bachmann, finishing in a strong second place.

Texas Governor Rick Perry and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin were not included on the ballot.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, former Ambassador Jon Huntsman, Gov. Gary Johnson, Congressman Thad McCotter, Congressman Ron Paul, Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Gov. Mitt Romney —  were. [full]

I like this story, and if the election was held today I'd be voting for a Cain-Bachman ticket.  Crain on top, because he's a proven business manager.  If it was Palin-Cain, well— Palin Cain. Anyway, I went browsing for "black on white" art because race is the first thing I think of when it comes to politics.   Seriouisly,  I Googled for ideas for art-chopping, and this New York Press article was the first hit.

A White Woman Explains Why She Prefers Black Men
How many white men can treat a woman like a lady and ravish her
By Susan Crain Bakos

No, it's not what you think.

They look better than white men, they touch and kiss and make love better than white men. Statistically, their penises are only a fraction of an inch bigger on average, but they seem bigger and harder.

There are other reason given -

  • Black men have something white guys don't have anymore: confidence in their masculinity (Tip:  She only dates Liberals.  Count on it)
  • Black men are gentlemen, something else white men no longer are. (Why - you bitch!)
  • With the exception of some Italians, white men don't turn me on anymore. (What was that movie ... Christopher Walken - "Cause you, you're part eggplant?"  Who knew?)
  • On another night in that same bar, a different black man, an artist, knelt and kissed my knees. (My god, I've been on my knees in many a bar.)
  • Black skin is thick and lush, sensuous to the touch, like satin and velvet made flesh.   There's only one patch of skin on a white man's body that remotely compares to nearly every inch of a black man's skin  (I think she's saying Black men feel like a penis.  Or maybe uvula? Very déclassé). 

At any rate, this is something Susan Crain Brooks is expert in, while I have no experience at all.  I do think that all of this would be a great idea for Myth Busters to tackle.   Kari?  For science?  By the way, That's not Not Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann in the top picture.

Boost in 2010 from stimulus now ‘killing’ housing market

Microsm USA News
Call it a stimulus hangover.

In 2010, Lawrence’s real estate market started to show signs of life as tax credits for first-time homebuyers — part of the federal stimulus package — did boost sales.

But now as numbers for the first half of 2011 are released, it is clear that Lawrence’s real estate market is no longer stimulated.

“The stimulus created an artificial boost for awhile,” said Gary Nuzum, senior vice president of McGrew Real Estate. “We knew it would help us last year, but we also knew it was stealing buyers from us in future years. And it has. It is killing us right now. I never thought it would hurt us this much but it has.” [Lawrence Kansas]

Environmentalists baffled: Gulf Coast wildlife is thriving after oil spill


Hmmmmm. Remember all those news stories that said the [Exxon Valdez] Deepwater Horizon oil spill was the greatest environmental disaster in history? You know, the ones that said the oil would devastate Gulf Coast wildlife for decades, that avian life would be decimated, that the Gulf Coast was a dead zone.

In the words of Saturday Night Live’s Emily Litella, “Never mind.” Turns out the Gulf Coast has never had so damn many birds.

Now we know what the laughing gull is laughing at: The environmentalists' predictions

Reuters has the avian info: [I Hate the Media]
