Rains wash away Mount Obama in Charlotte, N.C.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A torrential downpour that struck Charlotte Saturday afternoon damaged the Mount Rushmore-style sand sculpture bust of President Obama — an ominous beginning to what many fear is a plagued convention.

Workers were trying Saturday afternoon to reform the base of the sculpture, built from sand brought in from Myrtle Beach, S.C., pounding and smoothing out the sand that had washed off the facade of the waist-up rendering of the chief executive.

The sand sculpture was protected from above, and Mr. Obama's face didn't see too much damage. But the storm was so strong that its heavy winds blew the rain sideways, pelting the president's right side and leaving the sand pockmarked and completely erasing his right elbow.

Democrats' choice of Charlotte has drawn criticism from unions who don't like North Carolina's labor laws, and the state seems to be tilting away from Democrats politically.

The large Rushmore-style sculpture drew comparisons to Mr. Obama's 2008 convention in Denver, when he accepted his party's nomination on a stage that looked like a Greek temple.

I've always said Obama's presidency was more like a crime thriller than a real event.  Now it appears to be ending as a Mel Brooks parody.  BTW, the actual Obama sand "likeness" looks more like John McCain than the Poseur.  More Karma.


Blackened Ham Steak



Blackened Ham Steak w/ Sweet Potato Salad

Res Ipsa Loquitor
Several years ago I saw Chef Paul Prudhomme make blackened something, fish I think.  It soon became all the rage to blacken everything,  and I figured how hard can it be?  So I took some meat, rolled it in black pepper and baked it.  Needless to say it was quite  inedible, and that was the last of that.  A few weeks ago however,  I found this recipe in an old copy of  "Cuisine at Home." I made it.

Blackened Ham Steak & Sweet Potato Salad

Lb Sweet Potato, Peeled, Cut into 1/2 Cubes
1 Cup Fresh Pineapple, Diced (I used canned chunks)
2 TBS Chopped Fresh Parsley
Cup Mayonnaise
2 TBS Plain Yogurt (I scooped the unmixed top off of peach Greek yogurt)
2 TBS Sugar
1 TSP Fresh Lime Juice
TSP Vanilla Extract
Salt & White Pepper to Taste
1 Center Cut Ham Steak (16-20 oz)

2 TSP Brown Sugar
1 TSP Paprika
TSP Cayenne
1 TSP Garlic Powder
1 TSP Black Pepper
1 TSP Dried Thyme

Preheat grill to high. Boil sweet potatoes in a pot of salted water until tender, 5-7 minutes. Drain, then rinse under cold water until cool. Combine with pineapple and parsley. Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, sugar, lime juice, and vanilla together in a dish. Season with salt & white pepper; toss with the potato mixture to coat.

Combine blackening spices in a small bowl, then rub the mixture on both sides of the ham steak. Grill until the edges of the steak begin to curl; flip the steak and grill for 1-2 minutes longer. Serve with sweet potato salad.

 I cannot tell you how good this is; MoSup flipped out.  The salad is an indispensable component, the necessary balance to the spicy ham.  Even better, it can all be made in less than 30 minutes, from notion to plate. 

Make sure you have your grill or pan heated to 2000° F (very hot). 

You're welcome

The results from the lab work confirm that the red ring around your penis was not cancer.

It was lipstick.

Dems can't give away Obama speech tickets

Here's the rules:

Since we're not selling tickets, you can't sell them either! If you sell your tickets to someone else, they will be deactivated. (precious)

While all this is going on, Democrat Media Complex editors are preparing their latest "Obama Pulls Ahead f  Romney" poll result.

Obama Speech to Troops Met with Silence

It’s interesting what happens when everyone begins to realize that a tyrant is on his way out. There’s a sense permission to stop pretending that everything is okay. -Tammy Bruce

WINDSOR, Ontario, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Two Canadian strip clubs have offered female college students tuition assistance in return for removing their clothes in public.

5 things we know about Obama

[...] However, given that the President’s ideology did incline this way back then (even if it doesn’t anymore [yuck-yuck]), then one can see where the Obama campaign might want to avoid further scrutiny of Obama’s time in college, since it would bolster (however hardly unfairly) the narrative that the President is a dyed-in-the-wool Left wing radical. As Newsrealblog puts it:
The conferences in question were presented by the Democratic Socialists of America, self-described as the largest socialist organization in the country. Though there’s no specific mention or evidence of Obama attending any of these conferences, Kurtz has found Obama’s name on the organization’s conference mailing lists from that time frame. Kurtz also draws a conclusion that since the 1983 conference, timed with the anniversary of the death of Karl Marx, was practically a who’s-who of the American far Left, Obama would no doubt have been there.
At these conferences, Obama is certain to have had exposure to some scholars and philosophers who would influence his life in extremely consequential ways. The conferences featured speakers like Frances Fox Piven, whose strategy for collapsing capitalism made her a darling of the Left, and James Cone, who devised the notion of Black Liberation Theology.
The conferences also featured workshops like “Poverty In America,” “Social Issues,” “Black Theology and Marxist Thought,” “Race and Class in Marxism,” and “The Case For Transitional Reform.” (Yep, the conferences sure sound like a great way to spend time in New York.) Many of these workshops centered around the concepts of Alinskyite community organizing and working from within the system to push the political direction of the country toward the Left, to socialism. [Full]

 A nice For-the-Record article from The Blaze.  It appears then that Wayne Allyn Root and friends never heard of Obama because they didn't spend time closeted in dens of Marxist  theorists  There is still mystery surrounding Obama's Columbia and Harvard years; principally,  who paid his tuition? And why?


Ex-IBM Japan president questioned over upskirt filming

TOKYO — A former president of IBM Japan has been questioned by police after allegedly filming up the skirt of an unsuspecting woman in a train station, local media reported Thursday.

What's remarkable about this story is that "upskirting" is illegal in Japan.  That's like making it illegal to have cook-outs in the US.
