Obama Girls are Easy

Put this up as my Facebook status and wanted to save it for posterity.

Next time I go to a bar, I’m going to find the Obama-loving women and use this pickup line: “Hi, my name’s Mike. I can ‘save or create’ multiple orgasms. That’s change you can believe in.”

Oh and then when I don’t ‘save or create’ the multiple orgasms and she’s laying there baffled, I’m just going to say “Sorry, I won” and leave. heh

A Tale Told by a Liberal, Full of Sound and Fury, Signifying Nothing

Heh. A prime example of why I keep going back to Ace of Spades HQ for the excellent comments, even when I have major disagreements with ace or his co-bloggers. Preach on, brother!

Obama agreed to language supporting a goal of keeping the world’s average temperature from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit).

Obama signed a piece of paper that said he would like to keep THE F***ING EARTH two degrees below what it is right now +2?

Well, I just signed a piece of paper on my desk that said my goal is to keep the Earth’s temperature from rising 10 degrees Celsius in the next ten years. Damn, I’m good, and I feel so good about myself.

Typical lib sh*t, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. How does sh*t like this make them feel bettter???

I’m going to sign a piece of paper tonight saying that my bank shall keep my bank account average balance above $3,000 (regardless of how much money I withdraw and how much money I fail to deposit) and bring it to them tomorrow. If they don’t like the terms of my legislation, I’ll just take a page out of Teh Won’s playbook and tell them “I won” and they must obey me. I’ll let you know how it goes…

Seriously, this is really such bullsh*t.  Imagine if Sarah Palin campaigned for President saying she could stop the oceans from rising and could control the temperature of the earth.  She would be rightly called delusional, thinking that she was the reincarnation of Moses and the parting of the Red Sea.  But Dumbo-ears goes around saying it and the 52-percenters swoon.

Ace of Ace of Spades HQ = George Costanza

I was reading through the comments on this post by Ace at Ace of Spades HQ and came across this one:

“Absolutely brilliant, Ace. Quitting cigs is enhancing your brain function!”

I’m a HUGE Seinfeld fan, so naturally this reminded me of the episode where George must give up having sex with his girlfriend for some medical issue she has (can’t believe I can’t remember what it was, I usually remember everything…). Well, George finds out that without having sex, his brain power has improved. Jerry speculates that the part of his brain he was using on a daily basis was analogous to a leaf of lettuce while the part of his brain preoccupied with sex 24/7 was the rest of the entire head of lettuce. So now that he is no longer preoccupied with sex, he has full access to the rest of his brain.

Well, I guess now that Ace is no longer on nicotene, we’re going to get even more brilliance out of him than we have been used to. Sweet!

And I say that in all sincerity. As many differences as I have with Ace on certain political issues, he is one of the best, insightful and creative bloggers on the conservative-leaning blogosphere, by far. If he truly is going to have a Costanza-type benefit from quitting smoking, this is a great thing for all of us. 🙂

Sarah Palin’s Resignation — Incredibly Risky Move with Many Advantages

Excellent take on Sarah Palin’s decision to resign as Governor of Alaska by AlanH in the comments at this post at Ace of Spades HQ.

This was my take after her announcement:

While this is an incredibly risky move, she does get advantages from this:

1. She gets away from having to deal with the endless stream of unwarranted ethics complaints brought by the Democratic shills in Alaska. They weren’t going to succeed, but they kept her from focusing on a bigger agenda and spending the needed time. Also, by getting her hand picked Gov. into place as her replacement he gets to build a political base of his own and raise the likelihood of him getting elected. If a Democrat had been elected, it would have been a constant thorn in her side with continual hearings designed to embarrass her in any future campaigns.

2. She suddenly has time to take on advisors and study up on the “wonkish” subjects she needs for a national campaign while taking a national role. She could be on television every weekend if she wanted in a good way – either fundraising or leading other initiatives…

which brings me to ..

3. The timing of this allows her to take a big role in attacking the Cap & Trade legislation. It is a huge issue in the national consciousness – one she knows a great deal about and one that public is very skeptical about. It puts her in the national eye, on the right side and in an area where she has great expertise. She couldn’t do this if she was a governor and the timing of this issue won’t let her take another year to finish her term. Instead, she needed to act now if she wanted to get in front of this. Not to mention being able to step into a tea party movement that does not yet have a focal point or leader.

A conservative rout for Cap&Trade might also make National healthcare die a quick death. In addition, Palin needs a national win in something that shows her to be capable and a leader to dispute the lies that have been spread about her by the media and her opponents – this issue can do that for her.

I think this might be the plan… but, if she was Governor, she couldn’t take the lead on this. Her speech did make about 5 points that sounded like a traditional conservative platform with a federalist/libertarian bent – one that fits well with the tea party movement and one that effectively refutes much of the mis-information that has been spread about her (and one that I think creates an effective coalition in the republican party).

******

I think this poll confirms the wisdom of her decision in some ways. Another couple of years of being a sitting duck in Alaska without the freedom of movement (intellectually and physically) to combat the left’s charges and to show a progression would only put her into a worse position then — I think that would have been even worse for her public perception than shooting tin cans with her bb-gun for the next 2 years. Not only does she have a chance to be free to build that credibility, there is a perfect situation that demands her expertise and attention in the public eye, right now.

Those Who Think Sarah Palin is ‘Done’ are in the Minority

Great comment left at Ace of Spades HQ in response to ace being, in my opinion, a whiney bitch while he tries to defend his ridiculous position that he and the rest who believe Sarah Palin is toast are in the right and anyone who thinks otherwise is simply a ‘cultist’.

“Before today, I didn’t really have to address this question, the question of how badly her resignation hurts her. I didn’t have to address it because I knew it hurt her some, and therefore I was able to answer a threshold question: Is she running or not? Given she’s hurt her chances, I thought “No,” and then did not have to address the hypothetical of whether she could recover from the resignation.

Now I’m not quite so certain of that “No” to “Is she running?,” and I have to think more about the second question. The only answer I have is boring and predictable: It hurts her and she’ll have to do quite a bit to overcome it.

I am going to ask you the same I asked Ed at Hotair. Can you read a poll. 52% says it doesn’t matter. Period end of story. You are with the minority on this one. Thus we that live in “fantasyland” as you put it were correct and you and your “reality based community” were wrong. Simple. You are with the 40% I get that. 40% is not a majority. Palin needs 34% of Republican votes to win a three way race for the nomination. She has that at the moment. That is far from being “done” politically.

Maybe, just maybe, you need to rethink you POV; and instead of wishing and praying that you are right, accept that, in this case at this moment, you were cold stone wrong about how people would take the news. She is far from “done” as you put it. Are there unicorns in your “reality based world”. just asking…
