San Fran Nan is telling us that she’s going to leak.  Where are her DC-strength Depends™ undergarments for pissy women with control issues?  She’d better run down and find some quickly.

Nancy Pelosi:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is holding back some information on Republican Newt Gingrich that could detract from his presidential campaign, according to a report published Monday.

“One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich,” Pelosi told Talking Points Memo. “When the time is right. … I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him, four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff.”  – source:  The Hill

The real question is why would she say this?  What could she hope to achieve?  Implied very strongly is that Newt Gingrich should suspend his campaign in the light of potentially damaging information.

blackmail [ˈblækˌmeɪl]  n.

1. (Law) the act of attempting to obtain money by intimidation, as by threats to disclose discreditable information
2. the exertion of pressure or threats, esp unfairly, in an attempt to influence someone’s actions

vb (tr)

1. (Law) to exact or attempt to exact (money or anything of value) from (a person) by threats or intimidation; extort
2. to attempt to influence the actions of (a person), esp by unfair pressure or threats
blackmailer  n
Not sure if “implied” would hold up in court, but this has all the feel of a store owner being shaken down to pay “fire insurance” because it would be a real tragedy if something were to happen to the owner’s building if the boys weren’t there to keep an eye on the place.
Her statement is not a lie, but wait until she turns on “spin control”.  Then we’ll see lies.  Already the implications are enough to insult the listener because we all recognize her speech for what it is – threats.  And when she does deny it or try to excuse it…

1. Stelamendacium: an arrogantly stupid lie that makes the recipient want to beat the teller to a bloody pulp.

2. Stelamenpunirist: someone who tells an arrogantly stupid lie that casts doubt on the listener’s intelligence and who rightfully deserves to be beaten to a bloody pulp.

But until that point, all we can do is arrest her for blackmail.  Newt Gingrich handled it well:

Gingrich reacted to Pelosi’s comments by thanking her for an “early Christmas gift.”

He also said Pelosi would be violating House rules and abusing the ethics process if she disclosed anything from the ethics investigation.

“That is a fundamental violation of the rules of the House,” Gingrich said in New York following a meeting with Donald Trump. “She’s now prepared to totally abuse the ethics process.”

But facts are facts – Pelosi engaged in blackmail, by threatening the disclosure of information with the intent to influence someone’s behavior.  Democrats would do well to treat her as if she were political nerve gas and abandon her, but I prefer that they embrace her and her poisonous nature.

I know Newt Gingrich isn’t a favorite among many conservatives and I can only respond with this:  Every single one of the Republican candidates is better than what we have in the White House right now.  Without exception, every single one of them.  So before going nuclear on him and threatening to not vote or making a statement by voting for some other candidate who cannot possibly win, you’d be better served to remember that.

Any idea why, when our own finances are draining down the drain – why we are giving money to the IMF to bail Eurozone members out of their own self-made economic hell?  Especially since the Eurozone was absolutely formed with the clear intent to take the US down a peg or three?  They made no secret about that.
I can honestly admit to wondering if the school administrators have lost their freakin’ minds.  Kicking a bully in the nuts is sexual harassment?
I have had more than enough of Christians that get up on their soapboxes and engage in behavior modification speech.  Telling Christians that they are the reason for the commercialization of Christmas, that to be good Christians we should have two manger displays (one inside and one outside our homes), how we should speak in wishing someone a fantastic Christmas, and how to pick out Christmas cards (the expectations of which I find offensive)… I have only one thing to say, with as much love as I possibly can… stop worrying about how other people live their lives, go have a Merry Christmas, and stuff it.
Stop crapping on other people’s enjoyment of the holiday.
What friendship doesn’t have it’s ups and downs?  Woman kills friend stuffs her body under pile of Christmas presents.  Who among us hasn’t been there, huh?
Be sure to come back later since I have more to add.

Yes, I am cracking up.  Didn’t sleep until after the sun came up.

Cruel Wife is hacking up bits and pieces of her internal organs.  She has had a cold for ten days or so now and I am hoping that I either don’t get it or get it very very soon, before surgery.  The last thing I want to be doing is coughing after I’ve had neck surgery.

As you know, my traitorous neck has been lying to my brain, and last night was especially bad.

Think of my neck as this spastic menopausal woman with low self-esteem named Astrid.  Astrid seeks attention by telling lies and manipulating her surroundings.  She has been telling those lies to my autonomous brain, who is  basically a not-so-bright fellow who we will call Sheriff Hynde.  Hynde discharges his firearm accidentally every other day and does a dozen stupid things at random regularly.  And when Hynde thinks stuff is going on that ought not be going on he makes everyone miserable and then they start reacting as well.

My arm is Dex, the conveniently-passing-by neighborhood handy-man who really is an agreeable sort but nevertheless is the target for Astrid’s lies.  Lies they may be, sometimes the lie shapes reality.

Now, Dex has done nothing to deserve being the target of Astrid’s behavior, but she’s having A Bad Day, and is taking it out on him.   Truth be told, Astrid has been having A Bad Day for many moons because of an injury she suffered years ago, and when she’s not seeing doctors, and she’s sending Hynde these “Dex is dying” text messages and the idiot Sheriff Hynde keeps falling for them.  Dex may be starting to believe them as well.

The other part of my brain, Mayor Neo Cortex is conflicted.  Rationally, he knows Astrid is a psycho bitch with some real issues but he also knows that getting rid of her is not a solution because she’s still a community institution.  He can’t replace Hynde because Hynde is his brother-in-law.  Even if he made sure Dex’s links to the community were severed and he was sent packing, Neo’s life would still be made miserable by the Astrid/Hynde duo because they probably wouldn’t even notice that Dex was gone. All Neo really wants is for Astrid and Hynde to knock it the f*ck off and go to bed already.

You can’t just corner Astrid in a parking lot, throw a blanket over her head and beat the stuffing out of her, either because she still performs a lot of good services that would stop pretty quickly if you roughed her up.

Lately she’s gotten into practical jokes.  She knows that Dex is close friends with the Digit family.  She threw a firecracker next to the Digit family’s quintuplet’s bassinet to wake everyone up and thought it was hilarious.  There was no damage to the bassinet but Hynde freaked out.  Two of the quints weren’t even affected, but three of them have PTSD and keep screaming their heads off and then going eerily silent at unpredictable intervals.  You would think that once would be enough but she keeps traumatizing those poor babes.

And lately, Astrid has been dragging Dex’s twin brother Manny into the situation with identical results.  The poor guys wish she would leave them alone and Mayor Neo agrees.

In a few days, the “fixer” that Mayor Neo has hired is going to knock Astrid out and take away her cell phone or glue all the buttons together.   If he’s smart he’ll wipe her Facebook and Twitter accounts.  Then maybe the community will be able to sleep and they Mayor can stop popping pills.

Note:  Translation of all of the above – first three fingers on both hands are numb, both arms hurt, and the screwy thing is that none of that is real, it is all due to a disc in my neck.
