I loved the Sunday comics, but this is one of many that pissed me off, even as a tyke. I mean, what in hell is funny about this?  Others that annoyed the crap out of me were Dondi, Winnie Winkle, and Lulu.

This is just precious.  Look at the Wook's expression.  She knows. Almost feel sorry for her.

Christie-Romney Food Fight


Hoes in the OutfieldBy now, everyone knows that Mitt Romney’s inner circle was righteously peeved at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for spending the final days of the 2012 presidential race arm-in-arm with President Obama as they toured the Jersey coastline after its thrashing by Hurricane Sandy. The buddy-buddy act boxed Romney out of national media coverage for days while lending the president some bipartisan street cred.

But it wasn’t just the storm. Christie had rankled Romney’s team throughout the campaign: He held back his endorsement as long as possible, flirted with big-shot GOP donors who begged him to jump into the race and used his prime-time address at the Republican National Convention to puff up his Garden State record — without mentioning Romney once.

“And it will hit Christie first. Halperin and Heilemann make abundant use of a vice-presidential vetting file dropped into their hands by someone in Romney’s orbit to illuminate secrets about the governor. Delivering the documents to the authors was a stunning breach of political decorum that can only be read as a giant middle finger at Christie and his aides.

According to the authors, Romney and his team were shaken by what they discovered about Christie during “Project Goldfish,” as the hush-hush veep search process was known. His “disturbing” research file is littered with “garish controversies,” the authors write: a Justice Department investigation into his free-spending ways as U.S. attorney, his habit of steering government contracts to friends and political allies, a defamation lawsuit that emerged during a 1994 run for local office, a politically problematic lobbying career that included work on behalf of a financial firm that employed Bernie Madoff. And that’s not to mention the Romney team’s anxiety about the governor’s girth.

For Christie, who is coasti to re
ngelection on Tuesday and already laying behind-the-scenes groundwork for a 2016 presidential bid, the book’s revelations are a Drudge-ready public relations nightmare that will send his advisers scrambling to explain awkward aspects of his record and his personal life just as he is stepping onto the national stage.”

It's a proper food fight, but now I know all I want to know.  No book buy for you.

The book’s loose argument is that both Obama and Romney placed their bets about the race early on and “doubled down” throughout the contest. It’s an apt take on Obama World. The “Obamans,” as the authors call them, set out to annihilate Romney almost two years before the election and executed their plan with brutal efficiency. There were hiccups along the way, specifically Obama’s dreary debate-prep sessions and his cringe-worthy performance in Denver, but his deputies in Chicago rarely deviated from their search-and-destroy mission. Romney’s campaign, though, with its bad habit of reacting to news cycles with snap decisions, always felt more ad hoc, with tactics trumping strategy.

George Orwell and MSNBC


Meet The MSNBC All-Stars

George Orwell had a complicated political make-up, which included a commitment to democratic socialism, and aversion to totalitarian government (but fought for the communists in the Spanish civil war).  He learned from the experience,  and developed a nonpareil  understanding of today's Democrats, as portrayed in his great novel— Animal FarmThis quote then, about journalism, accurately describes what's going on with today's media, and why Fox News is bitterly attacked by even Obama himself.  Conclusions are easy.  Add Orwell to the list of Thomas Jefferson, and other notables who Liberal democrats hate for their outspoken understanding of them. 

Ann Coulter Agonistes

In written history, let the term linchpin,
that allowed Obama to bring
the United States
to it's knees, be on Al Franken's head.

"Al Franken's Senate seat is another one that should be on Republicans' radar. He stole the 2008 election in Minnesota, going from a thousand votes down the day after the election to 300 votes up a few months later, after vast numbers of Franken votes kept being discovered in heavily Democratic districts. As economist John Lott pointed out at the time, the magically appearing votes for Franken were a statistical impossibility.

Obamacare could not have passed without the Democrats' prodigious vote theft in Franken's 2008 election."-Ann Coulter

Ann continues that thought with this churlishness, however

" But if the Republican candidate had won, some conservatives would now be trying to take out moderate Republican Norm Coleman for being a "RINO." The far-left Democrat won, so conservatives can't be bothered to find someone to beat him."

In fact, the point of her article is a condemnation of teaparty "purists."   Ann, it seems, has found room for accommodation in her own principles.  She wrote an entire book exposing the wrong done to the left's official bogyman, Sen. Joe McCarthy,  but then labeled, as "birthers," those of us who,  properly still,  demand to know why the President keeps issuing counterfeit birth certificates?  Would I be churlish to note that this change in Ann seems to have occurred simultaneous with  the emergence of Sarah Palin as spokesman for conservatives?   Sarah, who dissed the likes of Chris Christie, even as Ann was calling him her dream President?  As for me,  I still acknowledge Ann's ability for brilliant insight, and delicious rhetoric,  but I wonder if she still believes that there's no right way to do the  wrong thing?  She did, once.
