Speaking of fermented beverages, the next Arizona blogger get-together will be at 4pm tomorrow out on the West Side at the Yardhouse. RSVP at Vox’s.
Kudos to Sgt. Crowley for his excellent taste in fermented beverages (and, quite frankly, Professor Gates’ beer of choice ain’t that bad either). Obama, however, drank a Bud Light. BUD LIGHT? I’d rather have one of Joe Biden’s Buckler’s than a Bud Light: What a perfectly horrible “beer”. It is no coincidence that the decline • Read More »
Taking a quick break from infuriating U.S. allies on four continents and one archipelago, the Obama administration is finally doing something (almost) right when it comes to foreign policy. The Obama administration is supporting moves to implement a U.N. doctrine calling for collective military action to halt genocide…. The doctrine calls on governments to resolve • Read More »
Gerard Vanderleun at American Digest comes across some wonderful insights into both war-era Los Angeles and one of America’s most storied photographers.
How do you say “condescending jerk” in Tagalog? Another day, another gaffe. A few minutes ago in a joint appearance with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo of the Philippines, Obama stepped in it again.David Jackson of USA Today provides the details in his White House pool report: Obama praised Arroyo for her efforts to fight terrorism, • Read More »
Hey, the man knows how to win over the blue-collar crowd. (PS: The next issue of GQ will pronounce that lederhosen is the new fashion trend)
If you’re an Arizona blogger (musicblogger, gunblogger, whatever), please join us this Saturday at 4pm at The Yardhouse in Glendale. Drinks are on me. If I spill them.
I had to do something today I’ve never had to do before in the history of this blog. Delete a comment for foul language. And it came from another (alleged) conservative re: Obama’s birth certificate. *sigh* Let’s pause a moment to analyze why Obama is not responding to the birther’s demands. Assuming Obama wasn’t born • Read More »
Robb Allen has cracked the Obama birth certificate story wide open. Kudos for doing such a good job on this, Robb: You’re easily as good a journalist as the guys on TV. Now can somebody do an animated .gif of this memo comparing it to Microsoft Word? (Explainer).
A space adventure from the producers of Grey’s Anatomy that stars Ron Livingstone? If the ravishing Mrs. ExKev were to create a TV show from scratch, it’d look something like that. My perfect show would be something more like Flashpoint mixed with Mythbusters mixed with The Best Defense. With swords. And horses. And Salma Hayek.
He is who we thought he was, and we let him get in the Oval Office! – $160 Million spent on reforming schools in Chicago with nothing to show for it. – No legislative accomplishments as a Senator – His tenure as a community organizer resulted in communities that were uninhabitable. – As President of • Read More »
“Even if WMO (World Meteorological Organizaiton) agrees, I will still not pass on the data. We have 25 or so years invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it.” (emphasis mine). – Dr. Phil Jones, Climate Research Unit • Read More »
To promote the new season of Mad Men, AMC launched a Web site where you can “Mad Men” your avatar. (Mine’s to the right, natch.) Set in Madison Avenue circa 1960, Mad Men captures the all-too-brief Era of Swank. It’s what the ’60s should have been: optimism, technological know-how and the advancement of liberty. Instead, • Read More »
Classic white liberal guilt says: Society sucks, so who is to blame? Me, the individual? No, humanism tells me that I am good and my causes are just, therefore, I am, by my very nature, not part of the problem. Society? No. Society cannot suck in and of itself, as government and education is the • Read More »
“He doesn’t have to worry about working at FOX because we only hire talent who have the ability to generate ratings.” – A Fox News spokesperson re: CNN Anchor Rick Sanchez Rick Sanchez reportedly responded by curling into a fetal position and whimpering quietly to himself.
Spending over seven grand on a shotgun. Sure, it’s pretty and I’m certain it’s an excellent example of gunsmithing, but seven grand plus?
“The creator’s concern is the conquest of nature. The parasite’s concern is the conquest of men.” – Ayn Rand I am not a big Rand fan: I find her work too self-centered and devoid of human emotion for my tastes, although I do understand and sympathize with many of her goals. But she’s spot-on with • Read More »
Another movie from 1984, the greatest year ever for movies, and an oft-overlooked classic from Neil Simon and Steve Martin. If you’ve ever had to dine alone in a restaurant, you’ll get this scene.
The next Arizona blogger get-together is August 1st at The Yardhouse on the west side (insert appropriate gang signs here), 4pm-ish. RSVP over at Vox’s.
Actually, I lied about the “loving” part. Larger Version Inspired by this.
I had my tonsils taken out when I was four. In Canada. With socialized medicine. And it was VERY profitable. For me. I got a bunch of cards, some ice cream, and most importantly, a whole bunch of little green army men. The ROI for that operation (from my perspective) was off the charts.
Waterloo was Napoleon’s futile attempt to regain the glory of 1789-1812: His defeat at Waterloo reduced him to a broken shell of his former self, and he died six years later, alone and in exile in the middle of nowhere. Instead, tonight was Obama’s Moscow: At the height of his power, he reached too far • Read More »
“Let’s just lay everything on the table,” Grassley said. “A Democrat congressman last week told me after a conversation with the president that the president had trouble in the House of Representatives, and it wasn’t going to pass if there weren’t some changes made … and the president says, ‘You’re going to destroy my presidency.’ • Read More »
“(Current chair of Obama’s economic policy council Larry) Summers went on to say that relations between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union have never been better because of a recent uptick in searches for ‘Chat Online With Hot Russian Women’. ” – Me, last Friday “I cannot believe that a Frenchman visiting Kiev went • Read More »
