In the latest from the Wall Street Journal she says she's not the reason Dems lost the midterms...(my comments are in yellow)
“We didn’t lose the election because of me,” Ms. Pelosi told National Public Radio in an interview that aired Friday morning. “Our members do not accept that.” Which is why they are now in open rebellion against her
Instead, the California Democrat attributes the loss of at least 60 seats to high unemployment and “$100 million of outside, unidentified funding.” and her leadership, or her stupidity....did I just repeat myself?
“Any party that cannot turn (9.5% unemployment) into political gains should hang up the gloves,” she said.....
Among those rooting for Ms. Pelosi to stick around are Republicans, who are giddy Giddy? Really? It makes Republicans excited enough to crap Ecstacy pills and all they have to say is "giddy" at the prospect of reprising in 2012 the attacks they used in the past election cycle Her face wont change, why should our arguments?, tying Democratic incumbents around the country to the liberal from San Francisco. Which is redundant...like saying PIN Number...think about it...
Ms. Pelosi’s reply: Bring it on. “The reason they had to take me down is because I’ve been effective in fighting special interests in Washington, D.C.,” Ms. Pelosi said, citing the health insurance and financial services industries. “I’m effective. They had to take me out. I’m also the most significant attractor to support for the Democrats.” Does she mean to say the Dems lost ONLY 60+ seats because of her?
It's clear liberals don't realize that the voters figured out Democrats were really just a rebound after a 12 year relationship with the GOP that ended badly because they were cheated on. 2009 was when the Dems finally pulled back the curtains revealing the light of day so they could get a good look at who they voted for and realized the Perfect 10 they thought they went home with was really a big fat .
Voters: Ugh, why do I have a bad taste in my mouth?
: Good morning
Voters: AAAHH a talking a**hole!
: Want some breakfast?
Voters: Thisisajustadreamthisisjustadream...wake up...WAKE UP!
: You were SO drunk last night
Voters: YEAH NO KIDDING!....oww my head
: Headache? Here, let me get you some stimulus.
Voters: I don't think that works on headaches
: It does when you take it with ObamaCare, this glass of higher taxes should wash it down.
Voters: Don't tread on me!
: They're also suppositories!
...or something like that....Anyway, we're pulling for you Nancy!Add a comment

The judges will also accept "Rand Paul Turns Spitzer Into Client Number 10."
Even without guys like Rubio and Toomey here is reasons 1, 2, and 3 as to why the United States Senate will be a SIGNIFICANTLY better institution come next year...
Its clear what Spitzer was trying to do. He presented a premise (in this case it was a false one), Paul knocked that premise out of the park. Spitzer then tried to make it stick anyway by reiterating it and making it the last word before moving on to the next point of the discussion, and Paul simply wouldn't let him do it.
This shows what an amateur Spitzer is, Bill O'Reilly is the master of pulling that tactic off. If he wants to work on his television debate chops he should probably watch some (cough)Fox News(cough)....like everyone else.
Good game Idiot-I mean Eliot...by the way nice use of "filibuster," thats a funny kind of word isn't it....must feel weird not using that word as some sort of Client Number 9 euphemism.

Today is Veterans Day, and I know we throw parades and make sure calendar companies know that this is the day to print "Veterans Day" in size 4 font on their product, but I'm not sure thats enough anymore.
Hollywood is on the edge of starting its awards season, and thinking about that got me thinking that maybe they could let us borrow their red carpets and paparazzi for the Veterans Day parades, they don't need them yet anyway....
Now, you might be thinking, are there enough of both to spread around the entire country? No! So the second part of my proposal is that we have one HUGE parade in one central location, and then we fly in with private jets or drive in with stretch limos (borrowed from Hollywood of course) ALL of the nation's veterans who want to come.
So the country can enjoy the festivities there will be television cameras EVERYWHERE, and Joan Rivers will be there to have her lips smacked off of that "face" of hers every time she asks one of them "who" they are wearing.
You know what...I don't think I want to make our veterans walk down the red carpet either, which for that day should be known as the "parade route." They should stay in their limos. Many of them are very old and very tired, do we really have to force them to walk around a parade if they actually want to be honored by us? I don't think so, not anymore....
Besides, what kind of ostentatious carbon footprint does walking leave? Exactly! None! Its almost as if they don't want us to know the magnitude of their awesomeness.
When the parade is over the after party will be unbelievable. The only thing more gluttonous than the attendees will be the desire to use wastefully everything in sight.
Only the veterans who were in the limo motorcade will be invited. Instead of water the faucets will put out champaigne and the napkin dispensers will have strips of filet mignon. Goodie bags will be filled with pearls so guests can have fun pelting the help.
Speaking of the help, every single one of vets wishes will be their command, and they will be fulfilled yesterday.
The paparazzi will be there, the news media will have wall-to-wall coverage of the who's who of America's defenders, and everyone will be considered A-listers on this day. They'll be adorned with jewels that'll make the federal debt look cheap, shrines will be built in their honor, women will swoon for them, and their hands will fall off by the time they're done giviing autographs (that's when the older vets will learn what eBay is)
When its all over they'll retire to their special Veterans Night harems as their wives patiently await their return in the limos, which will be outside the party, idling....
...You know what...I apologize, I got way too carried away....We should probably just stick to giving these guys local parades and a hearty handshake, we don't need to be making them feel more important than they really are.Add a comment
So the FDA has created 36 new designs for warnings about the dangers of smoking that will cover the top half of cigarette packs. It's all WAY over the top, but they did get really creative with them.
I went ahead and picked out, for lack of a better word, the top 5 designs. Guess which one is my favorite. If you want, leave a comment on which one is yours :-)

Last week I got Obama a little something for the two year anniversary of his election...
iOwnTheWorld shared it with their readers and encouraged well wishers to leave a message. Below are my favorites:
We already wished him well this past Nov. 2nd
For he’s a jolly good fellow,
His pant legs are turning yellow,
His spine is made out of Jell-O,
Which nobody can deny!
(But try, Chris Matthews!)
Which nobody can deny (join in, Katie Couric!), which nobody can deny (now Oprah!)
For he’s a socialist fellow, which the MSM denies.
Happy anniversary, Mr President and thank you We couldn’t have fatally discredited liberalism and the old media without you
Happy Anniversary, Barry! We got you a new Congress!
Happy halfway point of your last term, Comrade Zero.
I flushed TWICE, in hopes my Anniversary Present would reach him faster!
For huge egos.
For huge egos get bigger every day.
For huge egos.
They blow up in the most delightful way.
So fragile and now reeling
With all their cash
They’re in the trash
ObamaCare we’re repealing.
For huge egos.
Thank Heaven for them all
No matter where, no matter who
They pissed off all the voters
Now they’re screwed.

Ted Rall is a liberal wiener who draws cartoons and practices trying to get through just one impression of Clint Eastwood in the mirror without pissing himself scared. Here is the tough guy in action
He sounds only semi-looney toons in the video, check out a passage from his new book "The Anti-American Manifesto."
Christian fundamentalists, the millennial end-of-theworlders obsessed with the Left Behind series about the End Times, neo-Nazi racists, rural black-helicopter Michigan Militia types cut from the same inbred cloth as Timothy McVeigh, allied with “mainstream” gun nuts and right-wing Republicans, have been planning, preparing, and praying for the destruction of the “Godless,” “secular” United States for decades. In the past, they formed groups like the John Birch Society and the Aryan Nations. Now the hard Right has a postmodern, decentralized non-organization organization called the Tea Party.
Right-wing organizational names change, but they amount to the same thing: the reactionary sociopolitical force—the sole force—poised to fill the vacuum when collapse occurs. The scenario outlined by Margaret Atwood’s prescient novel The Handmaid’s Tale—rednecks in the trenches, hard military men running things, minorities and liberals taken away and massacred, setting the stage for an even more extreme form of laissez-faire corporate capitalism than we’re suffering under today—is a fair guess of how a post-U.S. scenario will play out unless we prepare to turn it in another direction…
A war is coming. At stake: our lives, the planet, freedom, living. The government, the corporations, and the extreme right are prepared to coalesce into an Axis of Evil. Are you going to fight back? Will you do whatever it takes, including taking up arms?…
...Part of the revolution may be fought virtually by hackers. Those individuals are every bit as valauable as people who blow things up.
Here's a reality check for Oscar Meyer
Imagine in your mind this guy egging "revolutionaries" on to "blow things up" while he proposes himself to be the look out. Thank God this tool is just an Osama bin Laden with stage fright who only has a pair until the sharpie ink he used to draw them washes off his crotch.
I just hope the reality of my three points never changes.Add a comment

George W. Bush's book is out!
I want to take a few moments to address/answer some potential rumors and other details that didn't make the final cut:
There is a shortage of crayons, but only in NYC and San Francisco.
Biden did not ghost write the book, he tried to plagiarize it.
Kanye West is not expected to read it, he can barely read his own lyrics.
If Bush decides to appear on "The View" to discuss the book ABC is preparing for the eventuality of temporarily calling it "The Elizabeth Hasselbeck Hour."
His handlers did try to smooth things over by saying the "W" stood for Whoopi.
He did blow it by asking if her middle name was "Cushion."
The hole he dug got deeper when he said thats how she sounded to him.
There is a limited edition run that features a doodle by Bush of Al Gore in his private jet doing donuts over the ice caps.
The Iraq War chapter is NOT autographed by Saddam's old autopen.
The only member of the administration adamant that Pelosi would make a good speaker was the magic 8 ball.
Editors removed a passage where he told Obama that he would get history book to name the Bush tax cuts after him if he'd extend them.
Editors also killed effort in describing mementos from presidency to put quotes around his old Pelosi "mask."
Details about how happy a drunk Barney Frank can be have been left out because the president takes seriously what happens in Vegas.
During the Democratic primaries Hillary almost asked him to endorse Obama.
At one point there might have been a chapter detailing how Bill Clinton was so desperate to return to the White House he offered to switch parties to replace Cheney.
Also removed from the book was the episode where Reid first started calling himself a boxer after he lost a round of slap-boxing to Jenna.Add a comment
The Dems are concerned that they lost because their messaging stunk, so I want to help them make it clearer by suggesting slogans for Speaker Pelosi's grand demotion to minority leader should they choose to go off that cliff.

This country, in the best sense, went from a sort of purgatory, to liberal hell, and now it just clawed itself back into purgatory.
Despite Obama's snark about not giving the GOP the keys to the car, it is more clear than ever that he definitely not allowed to do the driving.
Oh, that's cute....Johnny B is trying to fit in with the cool kid....
So does the New Yorker live in Wonderland or what? What the hell are they trying to say here? That Boehner will be seeking approval from a no-nonsense Obama? They clearly missed the part where the GOP told him to buckle up because the car is about to hit a wall called "no compromise."
The only fist bumping we should be seeing on the cover of any magazine is Obama's fist bumping his arrogant face. Talk about global warming...think about the hot air that would come out of that blow.
Denial may not be a river in Africa, but it definitely flows through the liberal establishment more freely than the air between Biden's ears.Add a comment
Is this a dream come true or what? (my comments in yellow)
Despite widespread complaints about massive losses that will put Democrats in the minority, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday she will try to stay on as leader of her party in the House.
The decision exposed a rift between Pelosi's liberal allies and the dwindling number of moderate Democrats closet Republicans?, who feel besieged and eager for substantive and symbolic changes in direction after Tuesday's Republican rout. It also is likely to trigger leadership battles farther down the ladder.
Pelosi, the nation's first female speaker, said many colleagues urged her to seek the post of minority leader in the new Congress that convenes in January the core of liberal ideology, after all, is rewarding failure. That will be the Democrats' top post, because Republicans, who grabbed more than 60 Democratic-held seats Tuesday, will elect the next speaker. It will be John Boehner of Ohio, who will swap titles with Pelosi if she succeeds in her bid.
"We have no intention of allowing our great achievements to be rolled back," Pelosi, 70, said in a letter to her colleagues. Is she talking about the GOP or the voters?
Read the entire article here
I don't know how much more plainly I can put this. If the achievements under her speakership were so great she would be the speaker come January. What she is putting on display now is NOT arrogance, we had the luxury of calling it that BEFORE the unwashed masses, with their naturally occuring wrinkles, had their say.
Since the office of Vice President is somewhat more...um...prominent (relative to an inch worm's erection) than anything that comes out of Congress I think we overlook the fact that the only person in Washington DC whose dearth of intelligence can rival Joe Biden's would be Nancy Pelosi's.
I'm willing to concede that I could be wrong. Joe's real problem is that makes gaffes. When he said FDR got on TV in 1929, that was an honest mistake....he knows FDR's actually RECORD television, and they weren't even invented yet anyways...soooo....
There is a sincerity to the words that come out of Pelosi's tightly pursed mouth. Extra words can hurt, so when she says they have to pass bills to find out what's in them she is sincere because her face muscles can't afford her not to be. She may indeed be dumber.
In the end the Democrats have to do what is best for the country, so I hope she wins so she can flex the Dems minority party muscle.

I don't know...cynicism may be too nice of a way to put it...
This is a classic chicken/egg conundrum. Have liberals always been THIS morally depraved, or has the culture bar dropped so low that they now limbo to innocent people dying so inept piles of pinko poop can get their mojo back?
Does tubby there even realize that it wouldn't even be real mojo? He's basically suggesting we need to be tricked into liking Obama again. How??? (look for it at 1:05)...
How did the culture get to this point where the comedians aren't the indelicate pricks before liberal pundits?
There is a moment when Obama can "reconnect" with America in a way that doesn't require liberals to step outside of their abortion bubble and accept the deaths of innocent people as an acceptable means to an end. Its really simple...SERVE THE INTERESTS OF THE NATION AND NOT HIS EGO FED POLITICS!
When we get a chance we should make sure Biden knows "mojo" isn't his paparazzi code name for the time he daydreamed hooking up with Michelle.
