A year ago I came up with a list of ways you might be a liberal, AKA volume 1.
A few months later I had volume 2.
Here's a few more
If you thought "The Kings Speech" was a documentary about the invention of teleprompters...
If you're afraid to go on a show called "Are You Smarter than the Vice President?"...
If you think social networking is a government program that requires your neighbor share their smart phone with you...
When you hear "Always with Wings" and you think maxi pads...instead of how Al Gore travels between mansions...
If you think saying "thats a bright idea" is discriminatory against the
blind visually impaired and Joe Biden.
If your favorite sexual position is Democratic legislation.
If you get your news from The View.
If you've ever had dead brain cells reactivate because of The View.
If you attend a book club in which members only discuss written transcripts of what happened on The View.
If Meghan McCain is your favorite conservative intellectual...
If you'd draw a Hitler moustache on your own face if you ever disagreed with yourself.
If during the Glenn Beck show he discusses his paranoid connection between mid east rebellions and the Muslim Brotherhood and you start screaming "OH YEAH? WHAT ABOUT SCOTT WALKER?"
If you think the second amendment only applies to a well regulated militia and television coverage of the Palins...
If you're so environmental that you literally go green recycling bath water...
If Sarah Palin's crosshairs make you so nervous you now maintain a shaved head...
If the only right to a private education for children you're willing to defend in court is the kind provided by NAMBLA...
If you think Charlie Sheen did more to ruin the meaning of "winning" than Democrats in 2008...
If you're freaking out because you've always thought Obama losing reelection would be the end of the world...and you just realized the election is in 2012....
You might be a liberal.Add a comment
I've tried to avoid going there for a while, and her hypocrisy on the matter made it easier to poke fun, but I couldn't resist on this idea...Add a comment
One of my favorite columnists in existence, Peggy Noonan, had a great piece today on how Obama owes the country an explanation of his actions in Libya.
As usual she is spot on. It's not like we're asking him to solve any problems, we just want him to give us an explanation. You'd think he'd treat that like we just asked him to celebrate pre-Christmas. He gets a script, a teleprompter, he doesn't have to answer any questions, and he'll speak from his desk, so doesn't even have to change out of his golf shorts!
But no, we wake up one day to find out that we're lobbing tomahawk missiles and potentially creating a global cous cous crisis, and we don't even get a flippin' magazine cover out of it?
For two years this guy chased cameras like he was going to cheat on Michelle with one of them, and now we don't get to find out why he's sending us into ANOTHER war.
The worst thing about all this is the left seems to be on the same side as us, but he's a Democrat so they're more interested in talking about the apparent conservative hypocrisy on this issue than the fact that their guy just Orwelled the word "unilateral."
This is supposedly not unilateral because Obama got a signed permission slip from the U.N. and then decided to go green by not making our own Congress waste any paper in drafting one of their own.
In other words, Obama hasn't acted unilaterally in the eyes of his fellow citizens of the world, just the Americans who elected and pay him to put them first.
Why is this different from how Bush handled Iraq? This can be the part of the post where liberals can check out and affirm their ignorance at the Firedoglake post linked above.
Is Gadaffi a POS? Hell yes he is! However, our government is not responsible for addressing ALL of the sphincter vomit of the world. It's job is to be responsible for just the sphincter vomit that poses a threat to us.
If that's not going to be the rule of thumb then the guy who breaks it has explaining to do....preferably before he goes on his next vacation.Add a comment
There's all this talk (here) about how Biden once said he would lead the charge to impeach presidents, like Obama if he were George W. Bush, over military attacks launched without congressional approval, like Libya if it were Iraq...so I wondered how the Biden-lead campaign to impeach his president would go...
What Trump is doing
Is giving us permission
To ask the question.
-From someone known as Haiku Guy, a commenter at Da TechGuy's Blog.
Like Da Techguy, I'm on record as not being a birther, but it's fascinating that we're going on into the third year of Obama's presidency and not only has the issue not died, but now a C-list celebrity like Donald Trump is starting to chip the fringe off of it...
Where does Donald get off making such demands about birth certificates?!? I know where...look at that combover, if anyone deserves to issue demands of honesty from others it should certainly be from the guy who wears it on his skull.
Bottom line, it's a fair question, especially since the left has been acting like such asses about the whole thing. Yeah the birthers are obnoxious too, but liberals could easily make fools of them by showing the damn piece of paper already.
By the way, is it just me or does anyone else think that Trump is only running for president so it can be the theme of the next season of The Apprentice?
Wouldn't it be hilarious if Donald Trump was our 45th president? They could broadcast Obama's concession call to him live, and the whole world could hear the Donald accept it...
Trump: Barack, you were the project manager for this assignment we call America, you failed to provide a clear vision, you failed to lead, you trashed your team in front of the competition, and when they needed you the most YOU WENT GOLFING.
Obama: Mr. Trump if...if...if you inherited this mess from George-
Trump: You went over budget to the tune of trillions. The world thinks you're such a joke the country just asked ME to succeed you!
Obama: -W....W. Bush you would see that this job didn't...uhh...support my ego in the way I thought it-
Trump: SOMEBODY SHUT OFF THIS GUYS TELEPROMPTER! I'm tired of you putting divots on my golf courses, I'm of tired your wife telling me I can't have a cheese steak sandwich, and Mr. Obama, frankly, the entire country is tired of you.
I'm suddenly very close to endorsing Donald Trump for president...just kidding...maybe...Add a comment
They say time heals all wounds, so it's kind of ironic that majority opposition to a bill designed to fix health care has remained essentially unmoved <-- according to this CNN poll one year after it was signed into law.
At 59% opposed, CNN is quick to note it's not all roses for conservatives who want to bury ObamaCare like the chewed up dog bone it is...
...if you add the 13 percent who oppose the law because it's not liberal enough to the 37 percent that support the law, you come up with 50 percent of the American people who disagree with the Republican leadership on the issue...
Romanian gymnasts are the only people on the planet that can come up with twists that keep up with liberal logic. If the breakdown according to the CNN Poll is 37% are happy with ObamaCare, 13% think it doesn't go far enough, and 46% think it's a portal to hell then a plurality, at a minimum, oppose it because it's too liberal.
Pitting "no on ObamaCare" against a minority that approves of it, and combining that with a sliver of the country that actually wants something worse is not at all an even playing field, no matter how badly CNN wants to spin this.
Basically you have a group of four people trying to decide what kind of pizza they want to order for a party of 100 people, one of them is a midget.
Two people in the group want pepperoni, mushroom and sausage....mmmmmm.
One person in the group wants Canadian bacon........mmmmmm?
And the midget wants Canadian health care, which is basically moose poop.
So the group of four people are all screaming at each other, and the people who want a normal, yummy pizza with pepperoni and the like are making their case way louder than the doof who wants Canadian "bacon" and the midget who sounds only slightly more intelligent than someone with helium filled vocal chords that just got kicked in the testicles.
After a year of heated debate the midget kicks the pepperoni/mushroom/sausage caucus in the shins, looks at bacon boy and says "LETS COMPROMISE!"
So they go behind closed doors, lock them, and proceed order their redundant sounding Canadian bacon and moose poop pizza.
The pizza comes and the midget is pissed because more than half the party threw away their slice once they found out what was in it, and the 37 who are actually willing to chow down on it would only do so after they've picked all the moose poop off.
Doesn't that sound like a party you'd want to attend again, one year later?
In the end the point is this, I'm pretty sure 100% of the country knows our health care system needs reform, the problem has been how we get there. So a more honest way of looking at the numbers is most Americans don't agree with either ObamaCare OR a single payer system.
Bill Clinton was elected twice on this type of majority, so if it was good enough for liberals back in the 90's, then it should be good enough for their "progressive" label jumping counterparts now.Add a comment
If you don't know what the hell it actually means don't worry, neither do I. This image just popped in my head, and in some weird way it makes sense in conveying the lose-lose nature of our efforts there.
The left SWEARS that Sarah Palin INSISTS on being the center of attention, maybe that's exactly where THEY want her...
Bill Maher uttered a female vulgarism when referring to former Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin on his HBO show Friday night.
“Did you hear this – Sarah Palin finally heard what happened in Japan and she’s demanding that we invade ‘Tsunami,’” Maher said. “I mean she said, ‘These ‘Tsunamians’ will not get away with this.’ Oh speaking of dumb tw**s, did you...”

I just can't help but feel compelled to finish his thought for him....
Speaking of dumb tw**s...
For the first time ever I don't need Photoshop to show that it takes one to know one. (this picture is Maher thinking it would be funny to be the late Steve Irwin for Halloween)
I originally had a list of other snide comments about other liberals, I realized they don't need to be dragged in to this, so the list was removed.
YES! He can!!!
Just not for us...and now for another episode of "Who's Side Is Obama On Anyway?"
Now, with a seven-year offshore drilling ban in effect off of both coasts, on Alaska's continental shelf and in much of the Gulf of Mexico — and a de facto moratorium covering the rest — Obama tells the Brazilians:
"We want to help you with the technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely. And when you're ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers."

This is outrageous. I don't mean to be vulger, but did that statement come with a blue dress and kneepads?
And who the hell is we? The Kenyan voices in his head?
What ever happened to...
From Sad Hill News
Is there a reason we can't be our own best customers? How do the thousands of jobless victims of Obama's drilling moratorium feel about this? Does Obama want them to be customers of Brazil? WITH WHAT INCOME will they pay for it?
I know this seems like the 20 questions post, but that's all I've got. Logical thought is like a discarded fashion accessory with this president and I don't know how else to analyze this double standard.
It's a very good thing Obama was out of the country when he said this otherwise DC would've had a tsunami of its own...in taxpayer vomit.Add a comment
