Overnight Open Thread. Still more Stimulus Package (genghis)
— Open Blog

Not sure if anyone posted this earlier in the week, but NRO’s Media Blog covered this interview on Tuesday between PBS’ Chuckles Rose and ABC’s Jake Tapper. From NRO’s Tim Graham in the setup to his post:

”ABC White House reporter Jake Tapper described Obama’s first full day as president on the PBS talk show hosted by Charlie Rose on the evening of January 21. The real eyebrow-raising passage came when Rose asked Tapper about the relationship between Team Obama and the press, and Tapper described many of his press colleagues on their knees":

Followed by an excerpt from the interview (quoting Tapper):
”I would say for a lot of my colleagues, it's perhaps an unrequited love between them and the president. He’s — you know, he’s a cool customer. You know, I think that there are some of us that, you know, maybe try to report on our feet a little bit more than on our knees and he doesn`t necessarily know what to make of us all the time. You know, he eyes us warily.”

I’ll bet. I know some guys down in Orange County, CA who could probably work this story up into some sort of video. Sure, they’re not major film producers, and they work out of warehouses and rental storage spaces, but they’ve done some truly magnificent work in the past. Who cares if they have no Oscars festooning their garage-like spaces…they do this for the love of the craft, you see.

(hat tip to “Jubal Anderson Early,” who singlehandedly drove back the Spartan hordes at the Battle of Waterloo in 1066 A.D.)

Now that you’ve finished off your broccoli, I think you deserve a little dessert. Make sure you brush your teeth before heading off to your bunk. (Probably not quite safe for work, but anyone who objects is someone you really don’t want to work for/with anyway)

1 When the reporters were on their knees, did they remember the thigh-high pleather boots, thongs, and blonde wigs?

3 Nah, Team Obama will just pull his boarding pass on Air Force 1 just like they did to the Fox News guys just before the election.

Posted by: DCA at January 30, 2009 07:55 PM (d2E7T)

4 So, Chuckles' idea of a hard-hitting interview is to interview a REPORTER? I mean, Tapper's as close to a real reporter as you'll find anywhere this side of Michaels Totten or Yon, but.... Oh, and anyone who's concerned about NSFW at damn near midnight central time, has some serious other job security issues.

One last thing before bedtime -- Barry is gonna fuck up the economy so bad that in six to twelve months the press will have to turn on him. They know that if they don't they'll be jeered at as fools and tools and marginalized for at least a generation. Because they have nice houses and cars and send their kids to private schools, etc. they're going to do their best to prop up Barry. Right up until the ship starts sinking. Then they'll bail. I think a lot of the press realizes that they, at best, may only be able to provide a temporary stimulus to the Obama presidency. And if it fails while they're still drooling sycophants they'll be totally SOL.

27 " If he wasn't deceased, I'd suggest that he dress Michelle Obama." Why should that stop him? In this day and age of "queer eye," why shouldn't we have "dead eye?" With a little computer enhancement, it should be possible. And I can see Bernie, sitting in his easy chair, suggesting half a dozen different killer Michelle outfits, and ending with "Barry, I love you brother, but you really should stay out of your wife's wardrobe!"

40 "hat tip to “Jubal Anderson Early,” who singlehandedly drove back the Spartan hordes at the Battle of Waterloo in 1066 A.D." Careful with the Battle of Hastings (1066) references. You might want to check with Jonah Goldberg, before you decide whether or not the Normans were actually conservative, or, maybe, some sort of fascist tribe. Personally, I'm pretty maleable. If there's, like, a serious Norman chick -- ooh, I'm right there with King Whatshisfuck. On the other hand, should I run into a descendant of Harold Godwinson, or any other Anglo-Saxon slut, for that matter, I can be all like "Babe, sorry 'bout what Billy and his buds did to your side."

There are riots in Reykjavik and the IMF is on their way with a bailout. They'll probably burn through that bailout cash quickly since a bankrupted nation with 50 percent unemployment and little input with a population of 300,000 to fund the typical Scandinavian freebies.

60 I'm too lazy to scroll down to the "GAO: We'll Never Know if TARP Is Working, Or Has Worked" thread, but here's what it reminds me of:
     In the 1980s I had a crackhead for a landlord, and we had roaches.  His approach to fixing the roach problem was to put down roach motels, and sit there, in the kitchen, with the lights on, AND WATCH THEM.  Every ten minutes or so, he'd decide on a better place to put them.  After the first half hour, he'd decide the bait was no good, so he'd spoon some peanut butter into the traps. 
   I'm pretty sure he's not working for Congress, or for anybody, now, but I sure can't guarantee that those assholes haven't gotten into his stash.

The Stimulus LOL;

 

We may never know whether the government's $700 billion bailout of the financial industry worked, according to a new report from congressional auditors. That's because it will be impossible to sort out which of the government's spending and other tinkering has made a difference, according to the report released Friday by the Government Accountability Office.

 

That is the first paragraph in the news story linked in the side bar headlines. This is exactly what congress wants. That way they can scream how “successful” they were when the economy finally recovers 48 months from now (instead of the normal 8 months).

 

Note that I used 48 months because that is the official length give to the previous recession commonly called “the Great Depression”. We were still in it up until 1941 (11 years) but who is counting?

 

So why 48 months, or ten years? Because we are using the FDR recession solution set. Let’s hope that it doesn’t take WWIII to pull us out of this one.

WTF? Car rushing provision in the bill that benefits the automakers for their democratic support. Cant pay your mortage  but government plans to buy new cars and trucks with your money and crush them. all in the name of fuel efficiency! Sema.org

 

"Washington lawmakers to include a national car crushing program in the upcoming economic stimulus package. Vehicles targeted for the scrap pile will likely include Chevy Blazers, Silverados, S-10s and Tahoes; Dodge Dakotas and Rams; Ford Explorers and F-Series; Jeep Cherokees and Wranglers; and any other SUV or truck that obtains less than 18 mpg.

The so-called “Accelerated Retirement of Inefficient Vehicles Act” is "Cash for Clunkers" with a twist. Instead of focusing exclusively on old cars as is typical with scrappage programs, this bill will target any vehicle with lower fuel-economy ratings....."

81 This whole "stimulus" package seems to have odd overtones.

First, it's supposed to "stimulate".  Apparently so much so that it had to contain measures for contraceptives (now removed) and STDs.

Worse, is that now that 0 Republican votes won't work in the Senate, they have the group "Americans Coming Together" putting up ads in key states.

Is this a pattern ?

First, it's supposed to "stimulate". Apparently so much so that it had to contain measures for contraceptives (now removed) and STDs.  Worse, is that now that zero Republican votes won't work in the Senate, they have the group "Americans Coming Together" putting up ads in key states.

Is this a pattern ?

#76  Do these people have even a FRACTIONAL awareness of "unintended consequences'?

If this is enacted, it would mean the disposal of EVERY lovingly restored antique auto currently existing.

Yes I got skin in this game, I own 2 of the vehicles that would be affected. And I damn sure aint alone.

 Stupid bastards.

didn't read the entire thread ... may be a repeat ... the messiah-in-chief, most awesome of all warlords, wants a 10% decrease in the defense budget ...

The Obama administration has asked the military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff to cut the Pentagon’s budget request for the fiscal year 2010 by more than 10 percent — about $55 billion — a senior U.S. defense official tells FOX News.

Last year’s defense budget was $512 billion. Service chiefs and planners will be spending the weekend “burning the midnight oil” looking at ways to cut the budget — looking especially at weapons programs, the defense official said.

Iran's take on Hopenchange!

US President Barack Obama's offer to talk to Iran shows that America's policy of "domination" has failed, the government spokesman said on Saturday.

"This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed," Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.

"Negotiation is secondary, the main issue is that there is no way but for (the United States) to change," he added.

HURRAY!!!!1111eleventy!

In light of this, I thought that I would pledge my help to The One and help Him with a revised letter to Iran.

Dear Ahmeduchebag,

I wanted to write and express by most sincere apologies for the 56% of our country that is so fascinated with shiny objects, obsessed with American Idol and otherwise brain dead that they elected a terrorist-loving, Chicago criminal that does not have enough experience to be elected dog catcher, much less POTUS. I am profoundly sorry that this failure in our media and electoral process has allowed this to happen. I regret that this error has caused you confusion and lead you to believe that we actually give a damn what terrorists like yourself, who are directly responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans over the past several decades, thinks. In addition, I am profoundly sorry that we’ve spent so long trying to appeal to your clearly non-existent sense of decency or concern for human life and rights.

Rest assured that it is my sincere intention to do everything possible to rectify these past errors on our part. Therefore, effective immediately, we are ceasing any consideration of you as a human being, or even a creature worthy to breathe the same air as all the decent and reasonable people on this planet.

The bombing will commence in 5 minutes (minus the time it takes you to read this letter).

Sincerely,

Damiano

PS- hope you enjoy your 72 virgins… my bet is that where you are going, they will be sex staved men named Bubba who have spent eternity waiting for your rank ass to show up.

94 Obama just wants to take us back to the level of respect that we had 30 years ago...when Iran held a bunch of our citizens for more than a year.  Maybe in 4 years, Palin and Petraeus can make America respected (feared) again.

97 "Also, think we need to strongly consider "pay for performance" here. This is a lot of compensation and I think clawbacks if the executive fails to pull us out of this recession are called for. I propose we institute a temporary "efficiency in government court" empowered to enforce pay for performance in the executive branch. The time to reward these employees for non-performance is over. Some accountability needs to be put in place. We won't have them kicking sand in the face of taxpayers any longer."  http://tinyurl.com/cqed3w

They have idiots on Fox now defending STD spending in the "stimulus" bill.

This just shows you how the worshipors of OBama will defend anything.

102 I'll probably ask this later, but I'll ask now anyway.  We're going to Roswell, NM the end of Feb. for a short, gotta get outta this snow, vacation.  What is there to do besides visit the Alien religion museum?

103 What is there to do besides visit the Alien religion museum?

You could ask the returning aliens for seats on the next interstellar transport.

Because the way things are shaping up, it looks like that's a better option that waiting for the inevitable here.

106 That Icelandic Lesbo looks like a dyke Sarah Palin.  Also I bet there have been plenty of other gay world leaders.  Like some of the French and English Kings were gay.  Also I bet Bill Clinton woke up a few times with a cock in his mouth.

And probably in his ass...Hillary wanted to be satisfied...

"You could ask the returning aliens for seats on the next interstellar transport."

Or you could ask why the "stimulus" package is titled "To Serve Man".
