2 Good morning, my fellow rape-shifters. Finished with the Slate gig. It's in the same office as the NY bureau of the Washington Post. When I walk past Lally Weymouth's office and see all the old photos of her and Katherine Graham, I mutter to myself "Tit. Ringer. Some assembly required."

29 @15 HAL, you'd get more points from the Horde if you could've written, "I am in counseling, but during my last session, as the PATIENT blathered, I was watching the Weather Channel on my iPad." Now, have you been having carnal thoughts about the shrubbery? That might be evidence of a problem. But TWC hostesses (or hosts, who are we to judge, amiright?) and beach volleyball super-slo-mo (whether it's women or Top Gun remastered [again, who are we to judge]), seems normal enough to me. Have you thought about watching "Born Free" instead?

31 Quote from the ONT about the mass of valedictorians. ----- Educations not a game. Its not about I finished first and you finished second, said North Hills Superintendent Patrick J. Mannarino, who was the North Hills High principal when the school got rid of the valedictorian designation in 2009. That high school diploma declares you all winners. ---- The stupid, it burns. It's not a game but we're all winners. That statement right there, in a just world, would have the principal before the board explaining why he shouldn't be fired on the spot.

39 Liberals are now saying air conditioning is bad so use a whole house fan. I remember the summer in our first house, wife 7 months pregnant, constant 90 degree weather and no air. A whole house fan sounded like the answer. Of course, I may have oversized from the beginning. Barely avoiding heat stroke installing this massive thing in the attic with the intake being in the main hall to the bedrooms. When we cranked it up, we had all the windows and door shut. It sucked the soot out of the chimney. The sliding patio doors were impossible to open under the negative pressure. After stopping the fan and opening a few windows on the opposite end of the house, we started it back up and the door to the bedroom hallway shut itself so hard it knocked it and it's frame out of the wall. True, it was cooler, but it was like sleeping at the end of a runway while a 747 was preparing to take off.

Posted by: Jean at July 31, 2015 02:14 AM (ztOda)

47 Posted by: Spellcheck at July 31, 2015 07:03 AM (1mPbg) Do you think the media people know who Cecil Rhodes was? After all, he lived over 100 years ago. About the same time the Constitution was written, according to Ezra Klein. They do know that white men did all the Bad Things in Africa and all the Bad Things everywhere. But the historical details escape them, since the world really didn't begin until they were born.

The mob's not through with the Dastardly Dentist yet. The Washington Pest says Zimbabwe wants him returned there for trial.

This is a load of bullshit of Choom Boy-esque magnitude. Zimbabwe (and other African nations) are happy to encourage this sort of hunting (or at least tip the hunters the wink) as long as that lovely moolah keeps coming in. Fifty K or so is a lot of coin there, even if it wouldn't get Hillary's attention here.

If they want to ban trophy hunting -- and I wish they would -- then they damn well better do it. As it stands, they are as culpable as the shooter.

I dislike the living bejeebers out of Mutt Rombley, but I can't imagine he would have gone anywhere near as far as Choom Boy. I think he's smart enough that he would have learned on the job, and he's not quite as narcissistic as the Mocha Messiah. Even if he did dumb stuff -- and he would have, yes -- I can't believe he would have done things that imperiled the country.

He tells his audience -- a buncha zoned-out Joiseyites -- they wouldn't pick Choom Boy to buy a used car on their behalf, and paints himself as Mr Security.

Granted, it changes nothing, and I would only vote for him if my only other choices were Jeb! and Shrillery, but he's doing a good job of selling a considerable pile of damaged goods.

Only people who are so power-crazy they are willing to subject themselves and their families to never-ending scrutiny and humiliation are going to be in the race.

That's why Jimmy Carter and the Democrats created the 11th Circuit out of the 4th Circuit to cover Georgia, Florida, and Alabama. It came into existence in 1981, but the legislation, appropriations, etc. to create it were all in the Carter years, and they packed it with liberals who had been on the 4th Circuit. Carter's legacy to civil rights.

243 Ah yes Hurricane Katrina...    Where good ol GWB bent over and asked the media to see if they could fit the other foot in.  Never have I seen the media circle the wagons for their precious democrats before.

I will never understand how those buses that were sitting there submerged in the water from the financially neglected levy that DEMOCRATS were solely responsible for got ignored/spun into GWB's fault.

It wouldn't have mattered one bit anyway.  The media and the foaming rabid left were SO enraged the GWB got elected again, it was bloody war until they got their way. 

The second term of GWB was the paradigm shift from upset to down right violently angry for the democrats.  Stomped their feet and called for a presidents head.  Then, right after that, there was the "culture of corruption" drum beat from the state run media.

But did GWB fight back with facts and reason?  Nope.  He laid there and allowed  himself to be  strung up like a pinata.  wouldn't want to "stoop to their level" was the excuse.  That gave us a decade of our country fighting for its life.

244 You know, sometimes (in disgust and loathing) I think about what it takes to make an imbecilic, brain dead, experience free fool leftard like Hector. How does someone get to be old enough to type and be so fucking devoid of original and critical thought? The only answer that comes to me is that they live in a comfortable urban bubble and take every effort to protect the bubble of delusion that constitutes their comfortable and thought free world. They form their protective bubble with a toxic mix of wishful thinking, delusion about the state of the world, and cognitive dissonance. Take their illogical fear of an inanimate object; firearms. They have no experience with them outside of being assaulted with them via the criminals they make endless excuses for. They cannot be wrong about their excuses, so they hate and fear the inanimate object that symbolizes their cowardice and pants wetting fear. They think being an "outdoorsman" means taking a hike on a super highway trail through some park for a weekend. They are typically urban and therefore have no actual connection nor understanding of nature. They don't have a grasp of actual science either. It is just another tool to support their comfortable bubble of delusion. Sort of a "stream of semi-consciousness" post. So, to summarize; fuck those stupid sons of bitches. I don't take my thought cues from an idiot.
