Marc Pitzke

Now is time on Sprockets when we dance

Marc Pitzke

Marc Pitzke is a New Yorker who might just as well be a shoe-bomber than the anti US journalist he is.  I crudely translated this bio from  a Dankeschön! article. Anyway, what brings this schnoodle noodle  to our attention today is an article he wrote for Der Spiegel.

A Club of Liars, Demagogues and Ignoramuses

They lie. They cheat. They exaggerate. They bluster. They say one idiotic, ignorant, outrageous thing after another.
Marc Pitzke war and the nation
It is known that Marc is an avid opponent Pitzke the U.S. and its anti-appeasement policy. We also know that Pitzke the U.S. for a "failed state" holds, because they do not move in the European tradition of the "nanny state".

But now - now, Marc Pitzke found "his" American. Yes, they should be like a small sect that has Pitzke somewhere inflated in New York. It was two days before the 11.9. founded and the High Priestess says that God was sitting in the two planes.
They've shown such stark lack of knowledge --  political, economic, geographic, historical -- that they make George W. Bush look like Einstein and even cause their fellow Republicans to cringe.


"When did the GOP lose touch with reality?" wonders Bush's former speechwriter David Frum in New York Magazine. In the New York Times, Kenneth Duberstein, Ronald Reagan's former chief-of-staff, called this campaign season a "reality show," while Wall Street Journal columnist and former Reagan confidante Peggy Noonan even spoke of a "freakshow."

That may be the most appropriate description. [...]

No Shortage of Chutzpah

Then there's Newt Gingrich, the current favorite. He's a political dinosaur, dishonored and discredited. Or so we thought. Yet just because he studied history and speaks in more complex sentences than his rivals, the US media now reflexively hails him as a "Man of Ideas" (The Washington Post) -- even though most of these ideas are lousy if not downright offensive, such as firing unionized school janitors, so poor children could do their jobs.

Pompous and blustering, Gingrich gets away with this humdinger as well as with selling himself as a Washington outsider -- despite having made millions of dollars as a lobbyist in Washington. At least the man's got chutzpah. [Full Screed]

You get the idea.  So what's the point of bringing it up? Skoonj sent me the story and it pissed me off to see this amalgam of agitprop and distortions peddled overseas.  I want you to be just as pissed at this arschficker—   who, evidently, said God was flying the 9-11 planes!  And aware of what our American Taliban are up to.  Carry on.

When Milton Speaks ...

It's so simple ...


This video clip is perhaps the single most impactful explanation in support of the free market. Milton Friedman does more with a pencil than anyone I have ever known.


Barney Frank Slide Show ...

Top Ten: Barney’s frankest

I was going to say "Its fun piling on Barney Frank and sticking it to him while he's down." but .. ahem.  Instead,  this Daily Caller slide show, each with its own supporting video, is supercalifragilisticexpialidociously  schadenfreudal.  Barney Frank is truly a modern day Mrs. O' Leary who lit a lantern in our shed.

Mrs O'Barney

"Following the announcement that he  would no longer run for Congress, Barney Frank co-sponsored a bill Tuesday that would repeal the “death panel” component of Obamacare."
