Last month I did a piece called The "Progressive" Fight To Save "The Force" In Wisconsin, and a follower on Twitter read it and made a comment that sort of inspired this.
Liberals shouldn't get TOO upset about this one.Add a comment
The ability to morally equivocate has got to be the greatest mental gymnastics trick the left has in it's arsenal of "intellectual arguments." If something is indefensible all they have to do is point out something else that is indefensible, and then they don't ever have to think about how evil is always the ONLY one peeing in your coffee.
It's pretty awesome, especially if you get pulled over by a liberal cop...you can talk your way out of a speeding ticket by reminding him that HE broke the speed limit to pull you over.
In the last generation Muslim extremism has gone nuclear, and now one guy wants to have a conversation about it, but liberals don't want to hear it...
For Representative Peter T. King, as he seizes the national spotlight this week with a hearing on the radicalization of American Muslims, it is the most awkward of résumé entries. Long before he became an outspoken voice in Congress about the threat from terrorism, he was a fervent supporter of a terrorist group, the Irish Republican Army.

When I was in college there was a popular game we played on the network in my dorms called Counterstrike. There were two teams, terrorists and counter-terrorists, basically each team would duke it out while terrorists either tried to blow up something or prevent the counter-terrorists from rescuing their hostages.
Sometimes I played on the terrorist team. Also, when I was a teenager I used to say things that were cool were "da bomb." My wife has dried her hair by wrapping a towel around her head.
So I really can't criticize Muslim terrorists either.
What if King didn't support the IRA? What if a different congressman, with a reputation that's more clean than Michael Moore's dinner plate, called for the hearings? Would it be ok to talk about Muslim terrorism then?
What if we went with Biden's suggestion, which he uses when he wishes to remain anonymous, to not make it so obvious that we're talking about them by switching the first and last letters of "Muslim?"
When will the left figure out that hypocrisy makes a person a hypocrite, but it doesn't make them wrong? Making Peter King's wrong-headed support for the IRA the reason we shouldn't talk about murder in the name of Islam is idiotic on its face, to say nothing of it being no consolation to the victims of either one of them.
In fairness the Times article does acknowledge that there is a world of difference between Al Qaeda and the IRA, but then essentially concludes that difference is meaningless after an unfortunate typo involving some terrorist named O'Sama.Add a comment
If there was any wonder how truly $#$%ed we are when it comes to fixing our addiction to spending money Harry Reid answers that question once and for all...
“The mean-spirited bill, H.R. 1, eliminates National Public Broadcasting," said Reid in a floor speech. "It eliminates the National Endowment of the Humanities, National Endowment of the Arts. These programs create jobs. The National Endowment of the Humanities is the reason we have in northern Nevada every January a cowboy poetry festival. Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who come there every year would not exist.”

Not exist? Tens of thousands of people would apparently disappear if there wasn't taxpayer funded cowboy poetry? What happens? Would they become unborn? Is the GOP trying to abort cowboy poets?
Wait a sec, tens of thousands of people show up to this thing? Are any of them actual cowboys that write poetry, or is it like the benefits of ObamaCare and its all make believe characters in one of the poems?
This is hard to believe, I mean, President Obama can't even get 100 high schools to beg him for an appearance at their graduation ceremonies. 100 times more people gather to find out what rhymes with cowboy?
Here's an idea! Its a win win, Reid can still have his festival, and Republicans don't have to be the bad guys for nailing its coffin shut. Send Obama there to read some of the poems.
Boy wouldn't that be fun? We could place bets on what he would do to embarrass the country next...here's my prediction...

So apparently do their executives! Nothing makes a man sing better than a juicy five million dollar carrot being served as dessert I guess.
I'm relieved that NPR is appalled by recent comments caught on tape of Former Senior Executive Robert Schiller calling conservatives everything but Satan's barnacles. I would be appalled too if I got caught with my hand in the liberal bias fat free cookie jar.
Between what they did to Juan Williams and now this maybe liberals have a crush on Allah.
One thing is certain, NPR is not appalled about anything. They're embarrassed. Executives with five million dollar checks being dangled in front of their noses don't tow any line that wasn't handed to them at some point by someone higher up.
Which begs the question, other than a thorough butt sniffing from Robert Schiller what would Muslims get if they gave a REAL five million dollar check to NPR?
Whatever they want?
Another one knocked out of the park from YouTube user Battlefield315.
A couple of months ago I was flipping through channels and came across this panel discussion on CNN. I caught it near the end so I had no idea what they were talking about.
I did, however, nearly hurl after hearing some idiot celebrity tart on the panel say that she was a progressive, thus SHE believed in "progress." Right, as opposed to everyone else on the planet who isn't her intellectual clone. WE all wake up every morning wondering how we can bring the world to apocalyptic destruction.
It's a wonder liberals don't resolve in one of their meetings to just don capes, they go on enough about themselves saving the world. Now they believe they have a monopoly on "progress."
When I refer to "progressives" in my posts I always try to make sure there are quotes, because that label is based entirely on their say so. If liberalism was really so self evident in its righteousness they wouldn't need to run from it.
They want to be "progressive?" Fine, from now on I'm going to start doing more than just use quotes to point out the absurdity of this notion by pointing out their only real contribution to it...
In California we have similar signs for illegal immigrants, so it's almost the same thing...
Wisconsin keeps their eyes peeled for the politicians, we look out for their constituents.
I don't normally (or ever) do this, but I got an idea to add to it to make the whole thing a bit more...comprehensive for road safety sake.
Protesters in Madison have "aroused a sleeping giant" in the national fight for workers' rights, filmmaker Michael Moore told thousands at the Capitol Square on Saturday, as rallies opposing Gov. Scott Walker's budget proposals wrapped up their third week....
"America is not broke ... Wisconsin is not broke," Moore said. "The only thing that's broke is the moral compass of the rulers."
More at Wisconsin State Journal
A "sleeping giant" was aroused?!? I'm confused, I'll explain why in Pulp Fiction style:
First of all, Boobs...check...liberal ideology....check...did I not just say a fat lady is singing?
Second, assuming his skin down there didn't already naturally crawl up into himself and connect with his newly lady parts (as clearly stated as a medical side effect when one registers Democrat) wouldn't a lack of circulation have caused it to fall off a long time ago?
Thirdly, for the sake of argument how could Moore possibly even know he's "aroused"? I'm just sayin'...when I come home from the grocery store and I insist on bringing all the bags in on the first trip my fingers become NUMB....
Isn't that what it would be like to be Michael Moore's penis?
Being a dick doesn't mean you get to pretend you still have one
And what's this crap about America not being broke?

At the very least he's definitely jealous of the wealth of praise the one who does all the work is getting, he must believe that if it got spread around it would be good for everybody...

Suddenly Obama doesn't seem so unqualified...
Top Senate Democrats sought to recruit Ken Jennings to challenge Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch (R) back in 2004, the "Jeopardy!" contestant revealed Thursday.
Jennings is famous for holding the record for consecutive wins on the quiz show. His streak of 74 straight victories brought him to the attention of the Democratic Senate leadership in 2004.....
Jennings continued: "I am not making this up. Win on a game show and you can apparently run for the US Senate. That was when I realized the Democratic Party was f@#$ed in '04."
More at The Hill
According to the article Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer PERSONALLY reached out to Jennings to run. Do you think Sharon Angle would've won if she was able to run ads showing how Reid thought a game show contestant could do what he does?
I would've loved to have seen that debate...
Jennings: What is capitalism?
Jennings: What is that's my answer...
Hatch: To...the moderator's, question?
Jennings: What is Harry Reid wanted me to find out for him?
Hatch: Well I believe you were asked if you support the war on terror?
Jennings: What is can't you just freakin' ask me about stuff that ends in "urple"?
Hatch: Citizens of Utah I look forward to serving another term as your senator.
Jennings: What is WHERE THE F**K IS MY BUZZER?!?
That's Democrats view of leadership for you. Become famous for knowing stuff like the names of craters on the moon and that can be your golden ticket to becoming a cog in the machine that makes trillion dollar deficits.Add a comment

I've been so focused on blowing the lid on the idiocy over liberals making the Koch brothers their boogeymen that I missed a very interesting revelation on the Open Secrets all-time donor chart.
Look who is ranked at 81...
News Corp, that evil GOP corporate conglomerate that owns that GOP Public Relations firm we call Fox News gives more money to DEMOCRATS! Stick that in Sean Hannity's pipe and smoke it!
Liberals picked a REALLY bad time to argue about who puts money into politics, didn't they?Add a comment
My post exposing The Smoking Gun on the Koch Brothers Money Trail has had an interesting reaction from the left has been simultaneously disappointing and typical.
Basically, they think the charts that show conclusively that labor unions give WAY WAY WAY more money to politics than the new liberal boogeymen brothers are "misleading." (duh)
I haven't had too much in the way of an explanation of how this is true until today from a new liberal pal of mine on Twitter, who spoke up saying, "you mean THIS gun?" ↓
I apparently overlooked the individual donations of the Kochs, which are separate from Koch Industries. Not realizing this would be such a game changer to the big picture, I went ahead and rolled the individual contriubution amounts into the $11,002,235 kicked in by Koch Industries over the last 21 years that ranks them 83 out of 140 on the all-time donor list.
The new number is $13,845,380, which SKYROCKETS them ALLLLLLLL the way up to 61! Did you feel the G's on that one?
That new ranking changes virtually nothing, it would place Koch Industries ahead of a bunch of corporation, and only 3 unions.
Even if that kind of comingling of funds doesn't make sense, liberals still have to grapple with the hypocrisy of complaining about the Kochs contributing $2,843,145 to the political process over a 21 year period when the left's most photogenic billionaire ally, George Soros, spent more than one-third that ammount on ONE California ballot proposition in 2010 ALONE.
Then my friend sent me this chart ↓ ....
...which to the naked eye for the liberal guy looks like the Koch's spent triple what the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees spent in 2010, and that they actually started spending more than them starting in 2006.
Look at the scale on the "TOTALS" axis. In 2010 Koch industries spent about $2 million, the AFSCME spent almost 3 million. The comparisons just get worse from there, because 2010 was a record breaking year for the Koch's. Meanwhile, the AFSCME spent that and THEN some (especially in 2000 and 2002) EVERY YEAR but 1990.
So....I'm still trying to figure out what my liberal friend was trying to "show and tell" me. That he doesn't understand numbers? He doesn't know how to read charts?
Or maybe he was just trying to concede that I'm still right?Add a comment
Congressman Anthony Weiner is leading the charge to get Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse himself when ObamaCare makes it to the high court. Thus making the case to overturn it DOA.
Megyn Kelly interviews him on this matter, and in the first minute or so destroys his entire argument. This launches him into a-hole, AKA "just bein' myself" mode, where he pretty much filibusters the rest of the interview so as to not make the mistake of letting her expose his idiocy further.
As you can see he not only fails, but he certainly didn't conduct himself in a way that would ingratiate himself with anyone who could've otherwise been persuaded. It's hard to understand how he could've conducted himself so stupidly. So I developed a little PSA to help people "get it"...
The important lesson from recent events is how imperative it is that DHS remains diligent and never rests in guarding every corner of the world from right-wing extremism, because that report they issued at the beginning of Obama's presidency (story here) is much more precient now than ever before.
A gunman shouting "Allahu Akbar" opened fire on a bus carrying U.S. airmen in Frankfurt, Germany, killing two and wounding two others before his gun jammed and he was subdued, officials said.
An ethnic Albanian from Kosovo was taken into custody and the FBI was heading an investigation because U.S. citizens were killed and to determine whether the shooting was an act of terrorism.

I'm sure this was just some guy who's still pissed about ObamaCare, or maybe his cable company discontinued Fox News. I'm sure DHS has a standard M.O. on this guy so profiling him shouldn't be too difficult.
Then we have some crazy Tea Party peeps on the other side of the pond getting all crazy in Wisconsin, trying to pose as union demonstrators so they could fall under DHS's home grown extremeist radar. They're pretty devious. They even tried to mob a fellow Republican to show they "mean business."
I personally was impressed with their ability to fake worship the Democratic Assemblyman who told them to stand down like he was their master in obedience school. I guess you don't really need to study cows to know how to act like a mindless herd.
It has been almost two years since that report was issued. Now more than ever it's time for liberals to stand up and show the world that they're the ones that put the "ive" in "progressive."Add a comment
When I was in college I wrote a conservative opinion column for my school's newspaper (my presence prompted liberal letters-to-the-editor that accused the paper of having a conservative bias toward the NEWS, but that's a different story for another time). At the beginning of the 2004 Democratic presidential primaries I made a wisecrack about Dennis Kucinich looking like Gollum. The very next day (if memory serves) on Dennis Miller's short lived CNBC he made the very same joke (as anecdotal as this sounds the newspaper is time stamped).
I'm not saying this to claim credit for the inspiration. I KNOW that I did no such thing. I just think it's cool that people who get paid to be in the spotlight come up with the same wise-ass stuff I do. Especially when that person is a personal hero like Dennis Miller.
So this morning I learned nothing can snap me out of a newborn caused sleep-deprivation haze better than seeing headlines this morning at Memeorandum like the following:
I had so much fun at the beginning of February with inventing WaldObama...
So these headlines of the day were pleasantly surprising. Not because I think I'm being copied, I'm just stoked to see that as an amateur I can be on the same wavelength as the pros.Add a comment
Attorney General Holder has had 2 years to come up with why the Black Panthers in Philadelphia didn't face any consequences for voter intimidation in the 2008 election. This, apparently, was his best shot.
Holder's frustration over the criticism became evident during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing as Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) accused the Justice Department of failing to cooperate with a Civil Rights Commission investigation into the handling of the 2008 incident in which Black Panthers in intimidating outfits and wielding a club stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia.
The Attorney General seemed to take personal offense at a comment Culberson read in which former Democratic activist Bartle Bull called the incident the most serious act of voter intimidation he had witnessed in his career.
"Think about that," Holder said. "When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, and to compare what people were subjected to there to what happened in Philadelphia—which was inappropriate, certainly that…to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all, for my people," said Holder, who is black.

Ok, fine Attorney General Holder, even though what they did really was the same thing we'll say the Black Panthers actions at that polling place in 2008 wasn't as bad as what blacks in the South had to endure 50 years ago.
Now why did you go easy on them?
I'll take any excuse at this point...free fist pumping lessons, a discount on membership dues, they formed a taxpayer funded union...
I'd even accept this...
Maybe ignoring time and labor on this case was a result of the DOJ really just doing its part to pitch in and reduce the deficit.Add a comment
