A winecoat. Not to be confused with a winehouse, we’re not digging up dead bodies today.
I’m in a pissy mood update below!!!!!!!!
I’m not trying to pick on Ace, but his link is the one that made me decide to write this post. I’ve seen variations on this for years.
The GOP might have to confront a new reality: That Democrats are actually Better Voters than Republicans, and that we can perhaps expect a reversal of the previous rule that you could shift four points from the Democrat to Republican in a poll to reflect Republicans’ higher propensity to turn out.
Yeah, or maybe the GOP could realize that many people who vote Republican do not think of themselves as Republicans.
Dems vote for Dems not matter what they do. The Democratic party worked itself into a frenzy for 8 years over Bush and now Obama is doing all the stuff they accused Bush of (unilateral war, taking our freedoms) and they’re still voting Dem in droves.
Conservatives need a reason to vote for Republicans, that (R) is not enough.
Since the GOP has been shitting on us since at least 2001, fuck em.
Far as I’m concerned they can go screw.
I used to think they just wanted to destroy the country more slowly than the Dems, but after 5 years of the McConnell/ Boehner clusterfuck, I realize they don’t give shit one about the country, they care about themselves, their perks and the ones who give them big checks, not the people who give them more money they just give less in each check.
In other words, thousands of conservatives give more money than one big donor but whose dick does the GOP suck?
Not mine, they spend their time calling me names.
So if they want their voters to be better, they should try being better votees.
MEGAN MCARDLE: Don’t Care About The Deficit? Now You Should.
Megan, recall, was for the stimulizing and even for more stimulizing, and now she’s worried about the deficit.
I stopped reading her back in about 05 when she went all, “My super-elite friend said global worming is real so you idjits need to accept the Science Is Settled!!!!” so I really should just ignore her the way I ignore Althouse for being a nitwit about Obama (Ooops, stopped ignoring), but sometimes watching one of our Best And Brightest being so fucking clueless gets me pissy.
I recently received an odd, frantic email from some wannabe politico in search of a conservative blogger who would write a column about Obamacare and jobs to save Tom Corbett’s re-election campaign from itself. As if such a Column to End All Columns could be written.
I don’t want to be too hard on this fellow, as I too sometimes suffer from wannabe-ism. Far less so than in the past, as I become more jaded and more likely to just give up and flee the state. I have little hope for an electorate that thought “binders full of women” was a substantive and revealing gotcha against Romney. I’m still not even exactly sure what that binders thing was all about.

While I prefer to root out, I’ll burrow out and try to make Mojo happy.
A sad story about a group dedicated to resistance losing their mojo. Speaking of ISIS and al Nusra (al quaeda) V Hezbollah
For a long time Hezbollah trained its fighters for surprise guerilla warfare and defense in small groups. Its activities in resisting Israel were made legend, and the image of fighters taking part in that resistance was romanticized. This attracted young volunteers and earned the reverence of the masses….
Today, Hezbollah is living the nightmare it once inflicted on the Israeli occupation by using small groups of fighters and swift withdrawals. It is being attacked by small groups, no bigger than two platoons, or 50 members. They kill, wound and plunder as much as they like before withdrawing. Worse than that, they film the insides of positions and the TOW missiles being taken away; something the party was never able to accomplish against its Israeli enemy.
Seriously, all they need are that blond nitwit to say, “Leave Hezbollah Alone!!!!”
I’m not a fan of ISIS or al Nusra, but watching Hezbollah get their asses handed to them by jihadi assholes is high-fucking-larious.
Another from Lebanon Now! that made me cringe/laugh.
Also, one has to understand that even though the initial reason for the US airstrikes was to save the Yazidis, the ongoing strikes are now viewed by many as only serving Shiites. For some Sunnis – extremist or not – there is a sense of injustice that when it came to saving Sunnis in Syria, nobody came, but when it was for the Shiites, the West intervened. This is a very strong sentiment that has many convinced that the West has lost its neutrality and chosen the Shiite/Iran camp over the Sunnis in the centuries-long conflict between the two sects. The recent photo-ops at the UN between Western leaders, including Prime Minister Cameron and President Hollande, with Iran’s President Rouhani have only added fuel to the fire.
Iran will have the last laugh. For the third time in the past 13 years, the West has unintentionally come to save Tehran – first against the Taliban in 2001, then against Saddam Hussein in 2003 and now against ISIS.
Obama does like to be on both sides of any war so I’m sure he’s looking for somewhere to fight for Sunni’s against Shiites. Probably Yemen or Saudi Arabia I’d guess.
Is Turkey Chicken? for not fighting ISIS harder?
Me? I’d bet they’r trying to pretend they’re against them while actually being on ISIS’ side.
This should end well.
…Sweden. Because the government decided to offer residence permits to every Syrian who requests one, it’s estimated that by the end of 2014 another 80,000 will have come.
Well, not so much end well as make Denmark and Finland laugh their asses off.
This makes me laugh.
The Swedish Democrats — the extreme-right xenophobic party that has come to be known as a “reformed Nazi group” — were previously alone in regarding immigration as a “problem” for the nation. But since the country’s Sept. 14 elections, they have become the country’s third-largest political force.
You can almost hear the confused leftists saying, “Sure they’re still hated cuz of Teh Hatred, but maybe they were right about that whole immigration thing. Well, not so much right as not totally wrong. But diversity is still Da Bomb!”
In, The Peepul Are Revolting Sire (We Know, They Smell Too) News, we have Connecticut:
he peculiar case started when Scott Lazurek, a security guard, was arrested in June 2013 for failing to show police his gun permit….
The prosecutor, Assistant State’s Attorney John Barney, said Lazurek was basically arrested for being “stubborn” and giving police a “hard time” — not for a permit violation.
Get that? He was arrested for not being sufficiently deferential to his betters. So he got his permit back and now the State wants him to know they are not amused so they’re going after him again.
Tar and feathers are the most polite response I can think of.
Oooh, this has to really piss off serial-make-a-mistaker Hansen at NASA,
Sea ice surrounding Antarctica reached a new record high extent this year, covering more of the southern oceans than it has since scientists began a long-term satellite record to map sea ice extent in the late 1970s.
Heh. They’re still trying to fuck that global worming chicken, but you can tell it’s forced. Gaia just does not seem to be influenced by how much they care.
Now, I usually try not to be too graphically disgusting, but I have to share this pic of a skidmark in my tighty-whiteys.
It almost looks human, but it’s commie so…not fully human. More of a subhuman shitstain.
So a metaphor.

J Effin Kerry January 5th, 2014. talking about fighting ISIS in Fallujah.
Now, we’re going to do everything that is possible to help them, and I will not go into the details… And this is a fight that belongs to the Iraqis….
So we are not, obviously, contemplating returning. We’re not contemplating putting boots on the ground. This is their fight
They did not help the Iraqis at all militarily, I assume the help they gave was just carping, back-seat driving.
The Obama admin October 8th.
But The New York Times reported earlier that the White House is growing frustrated with Turkish inaction …
…said the U.S. needs more help on the ground.
…”You’ve got to have willing partners on the ground. You’ve got to have ground forces.”
The New York Times quoted a senior administration official who slammed the Ankara government for “dragging its feet to act to prevent a massacre less than a mile from its border.”
Everything is someone else’s fault and problem for these assholes.
A prominent conservative political pundit (George Freaking Will V) was uninvited from speaking at Scripps College, in a program designed to promote conservative views on campus, because of his conservative views.
The funniest part? Most of America would not have any idea why the rest of us find that so funny.
It’s even funnier that it’s George Will. I’d bet a dollar he agrees with the Dem leadership more than most Dem voters do.
The spammers are taking over so I’ll post a spam email. No, it’s not from Ugg boots.
The bit about how he doesn’t understand America or Americans is a theme I’ve harped on so that makes this especially intelligent.
