Happy Friday.

I couldn't resist piling on media fact checkers yesterday.

Yahoo News reports that there is a planned Reagan hologram, it just wasn't ready in time for the convention.

DOD is threatening to sue the author of an UBL raid book for breaching non-disclosure rules.

1 Good Morning Morons.  Today is Friday, August 31, 2012.  On this day in 1887 Thomas Edison patented the kinescope.  This was the forerunner for the motion picture industry.  And yes, like all video inventions one of the very first films made and viewed was The Butterfly Dance, an early porn film.

2 Well the convention is over now, and for those who don’t watch it, like me, yes the mystery guest was Clint and he was a smashing success.  However Roget Eggbehead and The Hill didn’t like it.  Figures

3 Fox has finally got the story on the State Dept bullshit.  It came from a “diversity officer” who incorrectly explained the roots of these so-called offensive phrases.  He is dumber than a Chinese Crowbar and an obvious AA hire.   His research must have been done at Wright’s church.

4 A Church in VA is suing Fairfax County over its sign.  They have a stupid law that says you can not change an electronic sign more than twice a day.  I don’t think being stupid is unconstitutional and I don’t view this as Church and State or Free Speech.  I think it is a property rights issue.  Of course since Kelo we have no property rights any more.

The Boarding House


Award-winning author Sharon Sala brings emotional intensity to her unforgettable novel that follows Ellie Wayne, a young woman damaged by a sexually abusive father and mentally fragile mother. Ellie believes her future holds only danger and shame, but one man might be able to help her hope for something more.



And that’s it for today. The non-hurricane and convention wrap up are sucking all the O2 out of the news this morning.

15 Yes, the fact checkers from the MFM are big liars just like Obama and his team.


As for the DOJ suing the SF guy who wrote the book, discovery in that case would be nice. And it would bounce back when reveled that Obama has done most of the "leaking".

20 MFM is the enemy. They would rather tear down Eastwood as senile because they do not want to talk about Rubio or Romney. Clint hit his target because the JEF howled about it. Nobody talks shit about their boyfriend.

21 The JEF still thinks he's Mr. Cool.  Clint got so far inside his OODA loop it has become a death spiral.

22 Mitt's speech wasn't the barn-burner that some others were, but it was what he needed to do.  He came across as the calm, wise, seasoned pro to Obama's rank amateur.

23 Today will be interesting as the MFM goes into full spin mode actively campaigning for the JEF in a vain attempt to limit the rise of RnR as he unleashes the money-Kraken.

24 I didn't really have a problem with any of Clint's speech BEFORE I found out he had to ad-lib the whole thing. The MFM is just butt-hurt the old man shredded their boyfriend more than he's been hit by any comedian in five years and he did it on the fly and it was EASY.

28 I'm proud to say I have a new little republican voter in my house. My daughter will be 18 in a few weeks. She must have been bored last night because she followed my downstairs to watch the convention. After a bit she said "this is fascinating, Mom you have to teach me what all this is about". She proceeded to ask me the difference between socialism, communism and capitalism. She wanted to know the difference between a D and a R. There were a million more questions as well. What was Reagan? What was Clinton? etc..finally after it was all over she looked at me and said "Why would people even vote for Obama? Isn't it obvious who they should vote for?" Next thing I know she is texting all her friends who will be old enough to vote to see what party they are voting for!

35 I didn't care for the Eastwood thing.  It wasn't horrible, but it was only slightly entertaining, and he seemed to struggle at times for something to say. 

I sort of viewed it as a brief interlude before the big stuff happened.  Rubio was awesome.  He set the bar pretty high for anybody vying for the role of "next in line," including Ryan. 

Posted by: BurtTC at August 31, 2012 02:16 AM (BeSEI)

36 Eastwood's speech deflected all the MSM spin and hate away from Mitt on to himself.  Today the media will waste their time attacking him instead of Mitt. On election day nobody is voting against Mitt because of a harmless, if somewhat odd speech an old man gave on his behalf.

"Next in line" will be 8 years away and it will probably be Ryan. In any case, thanks to the rule changes it is even more likely that it will be determined by the Party.

55 2 more observations from the end during the balloon drop:
1) they have a LOT of kids and grand-kids.  I loved that Mrs. Ryan had to stop waving and go grab one of her wayward sons who was chasing balloons into the audience.

I worked at the State Dept. for 11 years (federal contractor). The Diversity Officer's statements are nothing new. I was hearing that bs all the time. It stunned me at first, then I learned how to gently mocked it. I liked my job and didn't want to get fired. Hell hath no fury then a bureaucrat scorned.

57 Mitt has 100% communicated his personal story by this convention and acceptance speech, imo. I think the remaining question mark for voters is the specific ideas and policies he will implement in order to get the economy growing. His five points were meager and vague, I thought. Also, how is better schools going to improve the economy? That is, like, a 15-20 year investment. Not something that can improve the GDP in his first or even second term.

61 Surprise Clint riffed improv off TOTUS.

The sly jabs were well worth the pauses.

Clint cinched the senior vote of undecideds for Mitt.

If it's "patience" Obama demands from America, to forget as if a MULLIGAN the miserable Marxist policies of his administration, then let the SCOAMF show some respect for his critics. At least Obama could take a cue from the TOTUS and perform the act on himself.

62 Clint won't care what the MFM fuckheads have to say about him; if he did he'd have never made Dirty Harry or any of the sequels, which gave the twats massive cases of the vapors while he made money hand over fist until they finally shut their ignorant upper jizz holes, at least about him.

68 All the emphasis on US failing schools certainly proved the Republican Leadership admission: "No Child Left Behind" is an utter failure.

A thought, "compassionate conservatism" fails in public programs, progressing the nightmare of administrative overload, bloating bureaucracy as if more reports from teachers (accountability) could EVER improve the quality of HOMEWORK from students, children who must have parental supervision in order to measure up to potential while cultivating self responsibility aka maturity and success.

74 For years, SNL was so lame already. It's the senility of humor that's stuck on stoopid.

Clint Eastwood can take the criticism because he's a man, unlike the weenies on SNL. And their snark isn't going to damage Clint's career in the movie business. He said so long as the work is enjoyable, he'll keep working. And his flicks are wonderful expressions of the world according to Eastwood, NOT HOLLYWOOD.

Good morning, 'rons and 'ronettes.  Didn't see Mitt's speech, but heard parts of it on the radio this morning.  I wonder if the SCOAMF can tamp down his butt-hurt and rage long enough to give a decent speech, or will he go into full Reverend Wright mode?  I do so hope they go Wellstone.

 

Anyway, I promised you a Jean Harlow story.  This is a long one that I've condensed from Jesse Lasky Jr's wonderful memoir Whatever Happened To Hollywood?  So grab an adult beverage of your choice and settle back. . .

 

The heroine of our story is the delicious Jean Harlow, with whom we’ve had a couple of brief encounters this week.  The hero is Jesse Lasky, Jr., son of one of the founders of Paramount Pictures.

 

It seems that, in the early 1930’s, Jesse and his dad had crossed the border to sinful Agua Caliente for a little R&R.  Jesse Senior was still a powerful producer, though the knives in his back were beginning to take their toll, while Jesse Junior was employed at the Fox studio as a “reader” – the bottom of the totem pole, a drudge assigned to look at unproduced plays, meandering essays and hopeless books in order to find something – anything – that might be turned into a movie.

 

Off the two went to the golf course, only to find themselves stuck behind a dawdling twosome.  An irritated Senior went up to ask permission to play through, only to find that the players were Harlow and her stepfather, Marino Bello.  Bello suggested they make up a foursome, and so they did, Junior relating with wonder that, in the presence of the intoxicating Miss Harlow, “my normally erratic golf game settled into a golden groove.  Hooks, slices vanished; drives rocketed straight down the fairway.  Everything was working.  I felt inspired.  I was!”

 

That night, Jesse ran into Harlow at the casino and watched her play craps.  Dazzled by her white satin gown cut to the navel (and let me just remind you Harlow was famous for wearing nothing under her gowns), he bet what she did and won a sizeable amount of money.

 

“You roll great dice,” said Jesse.  “You play good golf,” Harlow replied.  “Perhaps we could have a game when we get back to town.  That is, if you don’t mind playing with an old lady” (Harlow was 23 at the time).  She suggested they meet the following Saturday at 2 o’clock at the Riviera Country Club.

 

But when Saturday came, Jesse was doubtful.  “Of course Harlow wouldn’t remember a casual date, carelessly made in the heat of a weekend of fun and fancy.  Even I couldn’t believe that the most important star in Hollywood would date a nonentity, the lowest reader in the least of filmland’s studios.”  So, rather than look like a fool, he went to his office and began plowing through work.

 

Two o’clock came and went.  The phone jingled.  “Not very nice of you to stand up an old lady!” came the low, feminine voice.

 

“Jean?  Is it really Jean Harlow?”

 

“Uh huh,” Harlow said flatly.  “Start explaining.”

 

“My God,” Jesse stammered, “I didn’t dream that you’d really – that you’d actually – be there.  At the club.  I mean, for golf!”

 

She was, of course.  So Jesse hightailed it out of the office to the club, met Harlow for a round. . .and, well, one date led to another and another, and pretty soon the two of them became something of an item.  For weeks, they went everywhere together, enjoying each other’s company, though Jesse admitted, “I dared to hold her hand and kiss her hello and goodbye.  I didn’t conceive of venturing further.  Perhaps that was my attraction.  Everything about me seemed to amuse her.”

 

It’s hard to keep a secret in Hollywood, and soon the gossip that Jesse and Jean were a twosome reached the ears of Jesse’s boss at Fox, who instantly promoted him to personal assistant, with an office, a secretary and a salary of $250 a week.  And it wasn’t just the boss who treated Jesse with newfound respect.  People who didn’t know he was alive boasted of being old friends.  Virtual strangers slapped him on the back – “Jess, old fellow!  How are you?  Say, we’re throwing a party tonight.  Why don’t you come?  And. . .bring a guest, too.”

 

Then, one day, it all ended.

 

Everything had begun nicely enough.  Jesse picked Harlow up – “Her perfume was so strong it made me reel.  She was wearing one of her Adrian-designed white dresses, which set off the silver-platinum hair.  ‘You never looked more beautiful,’ I told her.  She took the compliment in stride.  ‘We’ll have fun.  I want to have a lot of fun tonight.’”

 

Off they went to a swanky Beverly Hills bistro for dinner, dancing and drinks – lots and lots of drinks.  By the time the two of them got back to Harlow’s house, she was complaining of a slight headache.  Jesse made to leave, but she stopped him.

 

“I am now about to read the corniest line in movie history,” she said.  “Come up with me while I change into something comfortable.”

 

Up they went to her bedroom.  Jean stepped into her dressing room.  Now, let’s let Jesse tell us the rest of the story:

 

“She stepped into the dressing room, leaving the door open.  In the mirrors, white flesh, sheer silk, flashing.  I waited.

 

‘Somebody’s got loose with a hammer in my head.  Think I should lie down.  Why don’t you relax.  Stay awhile.’

 

But instead I hurried out of the room – to return in a moment.  ‘Got something for you,’ I called through the door.

 

‘Nearly ready.’  She came out of the dressing room in a fantastic peach-colored negligee.

 

I handed her two aspirin and a glass of water.  The glass was pink and silver.

 

‘How old are you, Jesse?’

 

‘Twenty-two.’

 

She climbed into the vast bed.  On the floor sprawled pages of the script for her next picture, Bombshell.

 

‘When I was sixteen I was married,’ she said.  ‘My first husband couldn’t stand me wanting to work in pictures.  I guess he was jealous of them.  Why are all men jealous?’

 

‘Lack of confidence, maybe.  Like being – too tall or – my father always called me Shortie.’

 

‘I wouldn’t have noticed,’ she said kindly.

 

I noticed the aspirin were still on the bedside table.  ‘How’s your head?  Would you like me to read you to sleep?’

 

She looked at me a long moment.  ‘If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s reading in bed.  Be a good boy and go home.’

 

The moment had passed when I might have been any other kind of boy.

 

Next day I phoned Jean at her studio dressing-room to check on the time for our usual evening date.  The colored maid who’d been with her for years said she couldn’t speak to me.  Another phone call brought the same answer.  And another and another.  “Couldn’t” had obviously become “wouldn’t.”  By the tenth phone call I knew it was over; Jean Harlow wouldn’t be seeing me again.”

 

And we fade out on a sadder but wiser Jesse Lasky.

 

Hope you all have a wonderful day.  See you on Tuesday.

88 Instead of trying to get cute and clever with holograms why not simply show archived clips of Reagan's "are you better off" ads? In any event, Romney's got a fighting chance. If the job market further weakens between now and November then he's got a damn good chance. Hopefully conservatives will clue in and will vote en masse. It boggles the mind that that's still a major hangup, granted, but you can't really fix terminally stupid. Ultimately the election could come down, ironically enough, to small numbers of Reagan Democrats in a small number of states. And I mean literally, to Reagan Democrats. Blue collar union folks who voted for Reagan, who live in places like Ohio, Wisconsin and Iowa, who voted for Obama last time around, but who again are struggling to make ends meet and are rueing that mistake from '08. But now they're elderly. In their 70's and 80's. Romney's GOTV operations sure as hell better be as robust as they're claiming.

96 The one sales pitch that stuck out while listening last night out of all the messaging was that Mitt Romney is the hardest working VOLUNTEERISM political business man who puts the likes of Obama to shame. Romney didn't take a salary while Governor, that was news to me.

Contrast that with the Obama's leeching salaries from public funds, squandering public tax funds on presidential never ending vacations. There must be an end to Obama's spending of my tax funds for his pleasures.

You won't see Mitt skipping out from the Oval Office responsibilities in order to play another round of golf or fly off on another vacation. And who'd be surprised to find that Romney doesn't accept the POTUS salary while in office? According to his peers, Mitt's the first one to work and very much the active manager of all concerned. /Perhaps it's micromanaging that would be his Achilles heel.

This is actually a great point, and one that people forget when talking about Reagan.  What struck me last night was how much Romney "sounded" like Reagan.  It was the same inflections, the same pacing.  Everyone wants to remember Reagan's speeches as barn burning, take no prisoners, tours de force.  But they weren't.  He was called The Great Communicator, because he could sound reasonable and nice while explaining to you how the world really works.

Understand, I'm not saying Romney is Reagan, but he is the closest to Reagan's oratory style I have heard.  At least last night.

But at least now our side is seemingly willing to take on the entrenched unions and take direct aim at their own interests at the expense of the children.

Last night was really great.  Not a barn burner, but really great.  What sticks out in my mind the most was the personal aspect of Mitt Romney, the man.  I was extremely touched by the older couple and the woman who came out and gave testament to their own tragedies and how Mitt selflessly helped them.  Can anyone even remotely imagine Obama doing such a thing...without cameras rolling or a political advantage for him somehow?  I can't.

Likewise, as a chick, I was really touched by what comes across as a very, very loving family.  I got teary-eyed when Ann and Mitt talked about her MS diagnosis.  The love they feel for each other was very touching, and will not be lost by women who saw that.  It was the humanization of Mitt and I think it worked beautifully.

There's a cheerful niceness about the tone which you do NOT get from Obama.  Next week we will get the angry,  arrogant lecturing we have been hearing for 4 years. He will be determined to "show" Romney that he is a better speaker,  and it will cause him to try too hard.

And we  will also get a speech from Michelle,  and she will be angry as usual. 

The debates will be mostly about whether anyone wants to listen to the Obamas for another 4 years.  I think we win that contest.

Reagan was an accomplished actor. Reagan's oratory remains outstanding. Romney's message is what sets Romney apart, not his delivery. What the two share in common is their belief in American optimism leading the way through hard work to the best of times from the worst of times.

But I don't care to judge a politician on his charisma. Like Jerry Doyle says, I don't want my accountant to be the coolest guy evah, but to be the best accountant ever.  I don't care if my POTUS is a stick in the mud so long as he's defending and upholding the US Constitutional Government, my rights and Liberty.

"Under my administration, our friends will see more loyalty and Mr. Putin will see a little less flexibility and more backbone." Awesome.

153 #133  sven,.  I have watched both political conventions since Jack Kennedy's in 1960,  when I was in 7th grade.  (As you know,  I am older than dirt.)  You can tell a lot from watching the stuff that doesn't get shown in prime time.

For example,  I was certain that Tipper Gore would divorce Al eventually.  I believe he was an emotionally abusive,  if not physically abusive,  husband. And why would I say this?

Watching the convention coverage in 2000 I saw  the film introducing the Gores to the nation. (This was shown in its entirety on C-SPAN,  my preferred channel for conventions).  They were touring the  house in Tennessee and Al made a point (despite Tipper's protestations) of showing a self-portrait Tipper had painted of herself when she was very pregnant.   (I actually believe this was  done when she was under treatment for Depression.) So there I sat,  looking at a picture of nude, pregnant Tipper Gore.

And I thought that 1. A woman who paints herself like that is having serious mental problems.  2. A husband who has the picture hanging in the HALLWAY where children and grandchildren can see it has a mental problem as well.  and 3. A guy who insists on showing that on national television is out to humiliate the wife , which he did. 

When you coupled that with the over-the-top, man-handling kiss he gave her on the convention stage and I came to the conclusion he should be allowed nowhere near the Oval Office.  I am glad she divorced him.

Lots of people here bitch about George Bush,  but I consider his election divine intervention,  protecting us from a Gore presidency.

155 I would be willing to bet the Obama Campaign made a decision to smear Ryan as a liar long before his speech. One Ryan selling point is credibility; he's the guy who honestly states the nature of our country's fiscal emergency. Attack his honesty, and his credibility diminishes. It was just a matter of picking out some detail in the speech they could dispute, knowing the MFM would eagerly promote the Party Line.

Yup.  Spot on.  Al's other problem is of overriding intellectual vanity, a house built on very loose sand.

The way he tried to physically cow Bush the younger is a tell of his insecurity and bullying nature.  Add in his pathetic attempt at a Ronald Reagan impersonation and he may as well have held up a Looney Tunes sign saying "u screwball".  Gore was so over the top in trying to con us with cheap gags he showed how little regard he had for us.

Rubio is, maybe, a good guy. Maybe the official meme for the Repubs is to try to shoot the enemy down in a kindly way, as Bull Halsey (I think) said.

I'm not a good guy. I think Bark Obama is a treasonous, worthless little fuck who not only never built anything, but has never done an honest day's work in his entire affirmative-action life. I think Choom Boy is so consumed by hate for the nation that he will do anything to destroy it. In short, if not protected by his skin color (and political affiliation), he would be in a homeless shelter somewhere, wearing his "Che" t-shirt and ranting drunkenly about being oppressed by The Man. Or he would be under indictment for a number of crimes he has committed in the last four years.

So I'm saying he's a bad guy, and deserves punishment, not adoration or even consideration.

188 173 MrScribbler,

Your post is, as are many of my own, a good example of why despite the fact he was not my first or second choice at the start of this cycle Mitt Romney is the correct choice for this race at this time.  It is easy due to the inherent and unarguable inequity in media coverage and expected civility  between the party's to want to paint one's face with the blood the lashing if their barbed tongues draw flash a predator's smile and cry havoc unleashing the dogs of war, but an America trained to treat the President as a Special Needs child/idiot savant would recoil form Barack being treated as his character merits.  Mitt, whether he feels the same anger as many of us on the right or not, has the professionalism to make the sale in the face of adverse winds.

We are truly sending our best, and the media and democrats will do their worst.

203

The line of the night was when Rubio said that his dad stood behind the bar in the back of the room so that he could stand at the lecturn in the front of the room. Very powerful.

 

I think this line was central to Rubio's speech. On the surface it's a nice message about the promise of America and all the things that can be accomplished here, but I took a deeper meaning from it. His parents could have taken the easy way, stayed in Cuba, and taken a minimal level of security and handouts by the government. Instead, they chose to take a chance and moved to America where they knew things wouldn't be easy but that if they were willing to work hard their kids would have the chance to have the things that they couldn't. Their dream was not for themselves but for their kids.

 

I believe that he was trying to get across to people his age (my age) that things are not good right now, but that if we are willing to work hard, if we are willing to walk away from things that current seniors have (retirement in early 60s, Medicare, Social Security), if we choose the more difficult path for ourselves then things can be better for our kids and grandkids. We can choose not to condemn them to mediocrity. In doing so we may have to work harder and longer, but if we do it they won't have to.

In the common area there was a corkboard. I left his smashed body in the trap, bend the hold down bar in an L shapre and stuck it on the cork board. Then I taped a note to his tail. "Here he is, cold and dead, the last God Damn mouse that ate my bread. It just so happened there was an inspection that day. The Skipper was not happy.

244 I wasn't sure about Eastwood's effectiveness yesterday because I didn't know what to expect and had built up a lot of natural excitement. I wanted him to come out and be a slam dunk. Moreover, I haven't seen him in a while and was not prepared for how he's begun to grow frail (the man is 82, after all). But I re-watched the speech just now, with the expectation he would not be the Clint of old, and my reaction was much more positive. He came off as authentic and measured--and I think that is what last night was about. Even though we had a world-class celebrity, this was no Greek-columned affair extolling the virtues of a demigod who would lower the oceans. It was the story of a guy who rolls up his sleeves and gets to work--one whose promise was to help your family.

Contrast Eastwood's appearance, therefore, not with the professional politicians and speech-makers but with, say, the Sarah Jessica Parker ad: one, a gravelly voiced icon ageing gracefully and in his own skin, talking about the heartbreak of 23 million unemployed to an empty chair; the other, a botox-filled horseface clinging to an appearance 20 years or so out of date and talking about how she's going to entertain the same absent guest at her soiree--and he needs *our* help.

As for Romney's speech, it was pretty good but not great. I did like the "big jobs take an American" line. It made me think of this:

The head DNC uglynator says the Republicans should have scaled back the convention out of respect for victims of Isaac the TS/Huricane. This while Obama campaigned in full speed.

 

I would counter that, in light of this, the DNC should scale back THEIR convention out of respect for the victims of Isaac.   After all, the Republican Convention fell DURING the storm,    so the magnitude of the damage couldn't be known yet.    But the DNC is coming AFTER the storm.   They should actually cancel their convention and go volunteer    in the Gulf    states, giving blood and clearing away debris.   I'm sure those     Code Pink vagina costumes     would go a long way toward    mopping up the flood waters.

There was another poster here who said she remembered how the DNC convention rules were gamed thirty years ago to facilitate the donk extreme leftward shift. If the strategy worked for the donks, why wouldn't the commies try the same tactic with the GOP, using the Ron Paul contingent as an entry point?

203 Yes.

If we do it, they'll have the chance they won't have if we don't do it.

It? Self sacrifice. THAT is something the American public won't buy. It might come their way, but not by choice. But as it has come our nation's way, doom at the debt door, I won't willingly pay for pirates to profit from my self sacrifice, usurping Liberty to benefit authoritarianism. Lip service doesn't amount to squat.

"mitt was presidential..... "

THAT is true. But even Mitt's acceptance speech riffed on "You Deserve" to which the Unforgiven retort stands. "Deserve's got nothing to do with it."

Our nation's heroes who have fought to establish our Constitutional Government and to preserve it are the ones who do not deserve what has happened.

In our marriage, we've already spent our entire life in self sacrifice. That traditional role is nothing new to us. Join the club. But the Rule of Law and constitutional integrity must function intact. Otherwise, this election would be a mere exchange serving one dictator to the next authoritarian, great image and all the propaganda aside.

The "economic recoveries" since Reagan's Recession all relied on bubbles and inflation. Back in the late 70s, high school graduates could earn a "decent living" self sufficiently without any tax funded subsidies. Try that now. The puppet masters consistently invested/divested American "wealth" abroad. No single president can do anything without cooperation. It's one thing to get working class support to win an election. Quite another to fulfill those campaign promises when confronted by the global investment industry bent on spending US taxes abroad.

To Ebert's "sad" the saddest thing of all is that for too many, the American Dream amounts to get rich quick at all costs scheme advancing organized crime, permeating our nation and the globe. I never bought into that. And I'm happy with my life, modest as it is, as I've been true to myself, my spouse, my children, "humanity", and remain humbly with faith in God's hands.

For certain, I'll be voting against Obama. And should Romney become POTUS, I'll continue in prayer to Divine Providence for our children and posterity to value our American heritage and legacy, the US Constitutional Governance advancing our founding principles in perpetuity.

May God Bless America

Now have a good weekend. /I'm outta here.

301 Mitt went late last night on purpose.  What I hear is that internals are showing movement in west coast states and Mitt wanted to be in Prime Time on the left coast.  That also left Clint as a very watchable time for them too.

Hence, the reason Clint had to ad lib the basics of his speech, time change  (It was scripted already).

Oregon, Washington, Nevada, New Mexico, even California..  Make the JEF fight for the left coast.  Farther from Washington, and more the JEF has to be seen and woo his lefty H'wood friends that the rest of us hate!
The Romney Campaign is good.  Romney goes to the west and Ann and Ryan bag Michigan and Ohio...

303 @125: Theres a bit of wishful thinking there too. People have tried to claim, against evidence, that Limbaugh and other conservative radio only does well when the Dems are in power. This ignores that Rush and Levin and co are against the MFM as much as any particular politician, so they always have material. Whereas for lefties like Moore, they own the media, academia, and Hollywood so he's SOL every time a Dem is inaugurated.

304 When people fret over 'social issues' becoming part of the campaign, does anyone ever ask what issues the Dems have that AREN'T 'social issues?' Even their fiscal issues are couched as class warfare and 'justice' and 'fairness.' Aversion to 'social issues' really means 'Conservative views on social issues.'

Clint has been around long enough he knew that giving certain people the middle finger would bring out the anger.

 

When I think about the nasty crap that Bush endured for the last 3-4 years of his Presidency from a lot of the same vulgarians, the hypocracy is just laughable.

 

These people are a parody of themselves.

Social and fiscal issues are intertwined to a great degree..

 

When people say that they are "fiscally conservative but socially liberal", they have created a dichotomy in their heads that one day has to be resolved.

 

If you are socially liberal, that means that you believe in the necesity of government spending to construct the so-called "social safety net", among other things.  At some point in time, the cost of this social safety net is going to run up against your fiscal conservative notions.  These two conflicting notions cannot exist forever in the same head.

313 I know the dems are all upset about clint eastwood's speech. But one of the things that struck me was the respect he got at the convention. I don't think the romney team was quite sure of what he was going to do or say, I think they just trusted that it would be something special. And I don't think they were worried about "the optics" or "the narrative" or wringing their hands worried about the appearance. But the comments from the dems last night, particularly the one about many statiion mangers wondering whether they should pull that feed spoke volumes. Makes you wonder if they pull the feed routinely. The most important thing Clint Eastwood did is show the elderly that the republicans respect them and their opinions.

329 Best result coming out of the convention (other than all the awesome speeches, and the parade of accomplished and talented governors and R&R that the Ds just can't match - 'Clueless' Joe Biden really is representative)? Finally a level playing field as RomneyRyan can now spend money answering the Ds lies, holding them to account for 6 years of miserable failure (since they took over Congress) and, most importantly, showing how we can achieve prosperity again... Of course, it's not a truly level playing field as the Ds have the pathetic shills claiming to be an unbiased media and the involuntary servitude of forced big labor volunteerism (with forced dues extracted to payoff the D party), but at least Romney Ryan's hands aren't tied anymore. Inthink the big question is whether the Ds at Charlotte can even ad It they've failed miserably and hurt countless Americans with their policies - so far, Oblamer is sticking to its a roaring success but a failed narrative BS, but that's a loser of an argument because everyone knows the truth about how bad it is out there and that opens up the R attack that if Oblamer can't even admit what's wrong, he can't fix it and the Ned 4 hears will be as bad as the first 4 years or worse. I think Oblamer's ego and narcissism are so bad that he just can't admit that he's an epic SCOAMF and convince the gullible to give him another chance... His failure to embrace Bowles-Simpson post Nov 2010 will be the cause in fact of his losing this election, beyond the awesome candidates the Rs have fielded in RomneyRyan.

Eastwood has social and pop-culture stature in this country because of 50 years making TV shows and movies that are and were widely popular.

 

It is permitted for pop-culture icons to rail against conservatives/Republicans because they  (well, we, that is ....us!)  have been designated in the pop-culture as "the other", to be insulted and laughed at by morons.

Morons:  Cher, Rosanne Barr, George Clooney, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin, and a whole host of other Hollywood morons who have had someone else's words put in front of them for years and imagined they were wise and thoughtful.

 

Eastwood's sin was in deviating from the common hive-mind of the pop-culture mob.  He has to be read the riot act by the Pop-culture Soviet.  Denunciations will follow to make an example of Eastwood and make sure that no one else makes the mistake that he made in aligning himself with the reactionary bourgeouise Republican philistines.

"I couldn't resist piling on media fact checkers yesterday."

 

GABE!!

 

Give yourself a few points for prognostication.  But just a few, because I guess it was kind of predictable.

 

I'm looking at this morning's Buffalo News (owned by Warren Buffet, BTW) and the headline is a boring "Romney promises better future," with a large but unflattering photo.  But the main article below that is entitled "Ryan taken to task for litany of lies".  It's first paragraph goes, "Paul Ryan lied. Again and again." It later adds that he "infuriated independent critics in the blogosphere".

 

They quote a "Fox News contributor" name Sally Kohn, who I've never heard of, saying it was, in part "an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech."  I guess we're supposed to think "Even Fox news says it's a bunch of lies."

 

Then they say "Let's go down the list, one by one." They list exactly four claims in this allegedly record-setting string of "lies," and they do exactly what Gabe says. (1) They dispute Ryan's claim that Obama did "exactly nothing" with his his financial commission's recommendation by starting off with "Sure enough, Obama didn't push the bipartisan budget plan put forth by his fiscal commission. But..." (2) About Ryan saying "you were cut out of the deal", meaning the "stimulus", they claim that "about $230 billion of the stimulus came in the form of tax cuts." (I don't remember any talk about a third of the stimulus being tax cuts - where did THAT even come from?) (3) They say it's "grossly misleading" to say that ObamaCare was paid for, in part by channeling money away from Medicare, but then say "Yes, the Obama health care law cut $716 billion dollars out of the projected future growth in Medicare. But..." [you've heard the rest in other Democratic campaign ads] (4) The odd one is where they dispute when the Janeville plant closed, which the say happened a month before Obama took office.  Odd that a fact like that could be up for debate.  I presume that Mr. Rayn knows what happened in his own town.

 

These guys are REALLY, REALLY afraid of Ryan.

345 If you are socially liberal, that means that you believe in the necesity of government spending to construct the so-called "social safety net", among other things. Says who? The entire fiscal con part of the equation pretty much rules that out yet I keep encountering comments such as the above that presume directly to the contrary. Doesn't it rather depend on what is the definition of social liberal? It is entirely possible to believe, say, that pot should be legal without also believing that the state should have any responsibility for taking care of those who become useless stoners. A more libertarian view of social issues is completely compatible with a fiscally conservative view as to what is the responsibility of the state and what is the responsibility of the individual. This is one of the major problems I have with the whole socon/ficon fights, no one defines what they mean by those terms and everyone assumes everyone else is using the same definition they are. I think many of the circular firing squads are actually people talking completely past one another. Oh you think gay marriage is okay so you must also believe in cradle to grave welfare! That doesn't follow anymore than oh you are anti-abortion so you must also believe that no type of government assistance must be given to anyone at all and blind disabled old people should stave in the street! Neither premise necessarily follows the other yet both sides act as if they do. That's simply untrue.

Alexthechick, I wasn't trying to pick on you in particular or the idea that being "libertarian" conflicts with being fiscally conservative.

 

But everytime someone insists that they want to be "fiscally conservative but socially liberal"  (socially liberal does not equal "libertarian" to me), they create this ridiculous conflict.

 

Socially liberal is a lot more than being permissive about personal behavior, or taking a libertarian approach to personal actions.

Socially liberal takes a whole level of belief to the point that government must intervene to correct social inequalities.  It's the difference between

1) Socially conservative:  homosexual marriage is wrong! It will undermine heterosexual marriage and child rearing.

2) Libertarian: consenting adults should be able to do what they want if they are not harming anyone. Government should not be actively working to keep people from certain personal behaviors.

3) Socially liberal: Homosexual marriage is a right that must be compelled on people by the courts. The legislatures cannot be trusted!

 

The older I get, the less I really want to know about or get involved in what people do in their personal life.  Frankly,  I really don't care.  There are profound arguments about what this or that is going to do to society, but society is already so screwed up by what the vast majority of straight people are doing, I don't see how the 2-4% of the population that is homosexual is going to wreck the lives of the other 95-96% of people in the country.

The thing that everybody seems to have missed in Clint's speech, is that is was extremely pacifistic. He was critical of the Afghanistan war, while suggesting that the troops simply be brought home immediately, and that we could have learned that it was a bad idea from the Russians.

 

I took the advice of the morons last night and checked MSNBC.  They did not disappoint. At one point, Mr Madcow gave us a teaser about what the "weirdest" thing was. Upon returning after a break she infomed us that it was this exchange between Eastwood and the empty chair. She carried on that it was "the weirdest thing" to have ever happened in any political convention.  Later, when MSNBC broke in for a news update, the said of Clint's bit that "some have called it wierd".  So, I guess "some" means "one whacked out nutjob who works here" over on that channel.

B: Yeah? Well, I'm Unitarian. Who gives a shit? Now, shut the fuck up and get Clint ready. Use a cattle prod if you have to.

How can the DOD sue a guy for giving away classified information, when what this book does is DISPUTE information the President Released?

 

Or, can the President LIE, and then Classify the Truth?  In America??  and if so, does this guy get Legal Cover from Whistle Blower Laws?

 

Legaly... very strange and interesting... kinda like the plant in Little Shop of Horrors.

371 Email from a very liberal business contact in NYC today re: Clint:

"Clearly, Clint was the event of the evening. He is all anyone can talk about today."

372 So, the DoD is going to punish the author by seizing the proceeds from the wounded warrior group he assigned the royalties to?

That should play well in the press.

So, exactly when do the perpetrators of the STUXNET leak get punished?

This is far more serious than refuting lies in an opsec leak with out permission.

373 That should play well in the press. We control the vertical, we control the horizontal ...

375 I would be okay with buying the book and sending the same amount directly to the author.

377 Obama is a stuttering clusterf*ck of a miserable failure.
