UPDATE: Apparently Craig is (a) lonely, (b) a whack-job, (c) having fun, or (d) all of the above.  Really.

UPDATE #2: Physics of toilet-paper.  (thanks to Cranky pointing out this important source – more important than cold fusion, folks)

UPDATE #3: She wuz lected fairn square.  And Ms. Corrine Brown has a munications degree, too.  You GOTTA follow the link and look at the posted graphic translation at iowahawk’s… a rosetta stone for “stupit”, as it were.

UPDATE #4: Good feeling’s gone.

At the same time, there is a growing impression across Europe that the Obama administration is inept and inefficient and increasingly poorly managed.

A top European Union politician on Wednesday slammed Obama’s plans for the U.S. to spend its way out of recession as “a way to hell.”

Still bowling 7-10 splits, Obama shows that he just ain’t gettin’ it.

Big headlines in a breathy voice…  Obama Upgrade: Teleprompters Swapped for Giant TV Monitor for News Conference like this is Pulitzer Prize material or worthy of a parade.

“He read that opening statement from one massive TV monitor from the back and middle of the East Room. White House officials removed the normal glass teleprompters that usually are positioned on both sides of the podium. That change likely a reaction to the focus on the President’s heavy use of teleprompters.

Gee, do you THINK?

It wasn’t really the TelePrompTer thingy, it has been what he was saying, how he was saying it, and how badly it got mangled.  Mangled BS uttered is still just spewed BS.

It must be pointed out that a teleprompter by any other name is still a teleprompter.  (Barack Obama’s Teleprompter’s Blog)

Here’s the alternate image.

This version just has a different caption to the image.

I didn’t have anything constructive to say about tonight’s speech, I just wanted to be meanspirited about it since I’m in a mood.  The transcript is here.

Obama has moved us into “Overseas Contingency Operation” state of alert.  Those three words together mean absolutely nothing, which I guess was the point.  Graphic comes to you courtesy of Capricious Half-Breed.

Reporters live to write headlines like these:

US sperm bank offers stimulus deals

No one took credit for this piece.  Bummer.

Personally I think the subtitle should read:

Watch your money GROW!

I wanted to put all manner of phallic symbols in here with a dollar bill cleverly blended into the image.  I’m too tired.  Go picture it instead, please.

Telepromptitude.

From the Lemur King Dictionary of Idiocy:

Main Entry: tele•prompt•i•tude
Pronunciation: \ˈte-lə-ˌpräm(p)–tə-ˌtüd, -ˌtyüd\
Function: noun
Etymology: from TelePrompTer, a trademark
Date: 2009

: The ability or lack thereof to communicate with or without a TelePrompTer (see TelePrompTer)

Apparently our O-Messiah is unable to function in society without a teleprompter and his track record with one is seriously being called into question.

Michelle must be a very patient woman.  A wedding ceremony like this must have been upsetting.

Rev. Wright or some other racist minister:  Do you, Barack Obama, take this woman…

Obama:  I… Barack Obama… … look meaningfully to Michelle … take this… woman… look to reverend…

Wright:  … to have and to hold…

Obama: … take Michelle’s hand… to have… look to the side… and to hold…

(oh the humanity – LK)

Obama’s TelePrompTer apparently has a lot to say that Obama is not relating.

As much as I emotionally feel otherwise, the US Gov’t has no business passing new tax laws in a punitive fashion to take away bonuses given to AIG executives.  In case you haven’t kept up:

US House passes 90-percent tax on AIG bonuses... (Drudge)

It was part of their contract.  Yes it is obscene.  But it was legal and it is effectively a debt owed by the company, AIG.

“The Democratic bill brought to the floor today is constitutionally questionable,” said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind. “It’s obviously a transparent attempt to divert attention away from the truth that Democrats in Congress and this administration made these bonus payments possible.”

The bill would levy a 90 percent tax on bonuses paid to employees with family incomes above $250,000 at companies that have received at least $5 billion in government bailout money.

“We figured that the local and state governments would take care of the other 10 percent,” said Rangel.

Rangel, you utter pig.

For congress to pass a law thinly/narrowly targeted at these specific people with the intent to take all or nearly all of that specific money, especially in a punitive fashion… this is truly not a power given to congress.   This is totalitarianism.

Typical of the liberal mindset… democracy is the best thing EVAH, at least until it doesn’t swing your way, in which case you demonstrate, dictate, or go to court.

Too fat to work?  Move to Britain and let the English Corps of Sheeple (ECS) take care of you, for you.  Trust us.  Soon to be coming to America.

A British family of four, who receives more than $30,000 a year in benefits because they are “too fat to work,” says they deserve more money, London’s Daily Telegraph reported.

The Chawners, who live in Blackburn, England, have a combined weight of 1,160 pounds.

What we get barely covers the bills and puts food on the table,” Philip Chawner, 53, told the newspaper. “It’s not our fault we can’t work. We deserve more.”

Note:  I’m pretty sure putting food on the table took precedence over paying the bills.  Ahem.

OOOPS.  It’s HERE ALREADY!!!  So what if you aren’t fit enough to meet your police force’s regs on health and fitness!  The courts can keep you there anyway.  It’s not his fault if he can’t catch a bad guy.  They’ll just send him after fat and out-of-shape crooks.

Inventions that we could do without… cat wigs (huh?), inflatable dartboards (much like balloons for porcupines), and devices to let you know if you have collided with a pedestrian (the blood and body parts aren’t concrete enough indicators).

Update #1: Stabbing Victim X-Rays Remember kids:  Don’t try to remove the big honking knives yourself or you could die.

UPDATE #2:  I love how the UK always harbors some crackpate frontrunner for telling the world how they must change.

Pic of Pelosi on Drudge…

Something about it NAGGED at my mind.  Nagged like Nancy as a matter of fact.  Then it hit me.  With a bit of p-shop type magic (only a very little bit as I’m feeling less than zero motivation) I floated another image layer over her face and viola!

Tell me the resemblance isn’t there.

… Speaking of deathly ill-looking things, read a paper from the CATO Institute on health care myths.  It’s dated 2005 but the principles still apply – nothing much has changed in 3 years.

Speaking of myths… Obama!  Yes, you can belly up to the bar over at Six Meat Buffet or you can click on the link to see a very disgruntled teleprompter… one that works for Obama.  Very bitter that ‘prompter.  The prompter was brought to us by Iowahawk who gave credit to XD-235.
