I didn’t think it possible….but the estimable idiocy of Skip Gates has been eclipsed by none other than Harry Reid.
I used to think Nancy Pelosi was the congressional leader with the balls. Now I’m not so sure. It takes a titanic set of stones to stand in front of cameras and say what Harry said yesterday. According to Harry Reid, the media is to blame for setting the deadline for Congress to vote on health care “reform” before the summer recess. While I was watching him say this on the news last night, I thought to myself that he’d had some sort of breakdown and that he’d be whisked back to Nevada for a little R and R. I was mistaken. Those around him nodded solemnly as Reid lectured the media on their culpability in raising expectations that something would be done on this issue before the recess.

Now, I’m no prude and I don’t begrudge anyone who wants to indulge now and again in a little smut on his own dime and time. Hell, there may be a student film out there, circa 1984, starring NostraSeamus his ownself , wearing nothing but a Viking helmet and starring alongside a tub of bacon grease and a set of jumper cables, floating around. I’m not one to look down my nose at any man.
But for the love of Pete, after working all day, and facing the prospect of logging on after midnight, I come home and read that the tax revenue I just finished generating is going to pay for The Symmetry Project.
I hope the “stimulus” was worth it for Barry O. I’m actually glad the Democrats jammed it down our throats, because all those dollars for swamp mice, turtle tunnels, outrageously priced diced ham and bad, pretentious porn woke people the hell up and will probably cost the president his single payer health care system and, in all likelihood, cap and tax.
Some great quotes, sent to me by Cupcake, attributed to Adrian Rogers:
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by
legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person
must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the
government does not first take from somebody else.
4. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have
to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and
when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work
because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear
friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.
I always try to give people the benefit of a doubt. This is pretty shocking, though. Is Conyers complaining about the length and complexity of these bills, or making excuses about the fact that people expect him to read what he votes on. Continue reading “…Then What Does Congress Actually Do”
“As always, whitey now sits in judgment of me, preparing to cast my fate. It is your decision either to let me blow with the wind as a nonentity or to encourage the development of self. Allow me to prove myself.”
Henry Louis Gates Jr. says its time to move on. He says that he’s upset the hullabaloo over the president’s remarks have distracted America from healthcare “re…oops…insurance “reform”. I guess Gates’ commitment to civil rights in this country takes a back seat to saving President Obama’s bacon now that the president is in some political hot water over derogatory remarks he made about the Cambridge Police Department.

Training camp opens up for the 2009 Philadelphia Eagles tomorrow. I was going to wait until then to start my Eagles Diaries, but I couldn’t let the day go by without wishing Jim Johnson the best. Johnson, has been, until today, the Eagles defensive coordinator for the past decade. His defenses, with their exotic blitzes and emphasis on pressuring the quarterback, have been a big reason for the team’s success since the Reid Era began in 1999.
Johnson was diagnosed with a malignant melanoma at the beginning of the year. After he spent mini-camps on a scooter, he decided to take a leave of absence in order to fight the cancer. Yesterday the Eagles announced that one of his long time assistants, Sean McDermott, would be assuming the title of Defensive Coordinator for the Eagles.
I hope this move has more to do with maintaining efficiency heading into training camp than a deterioration of Johnson’s condition. I wish him and his family all the best.
I just discovered I Own The World and I had to mention it here because of its irreverent hilarity. Back in the day’s when my brother’s blog, Flatusyahu, was a going concern, we’d create photoshopped images of…well..just about anything..and post them. I Own The World does much the same thing, focusing on politics. Here’s a pretty good example:
