Hostage Summary – January 31, 2011

When Hostages Drink.

.

Well, yesterday (Sunday) was a regular testosterone fest, with most of the day’s comments pertaining to generators, electricity, and snow/ice removal.  Most of the Hostagettes beat a hasty retreat from the discussion; occasionally one of the ladies would peek in, but they didn’t stick around for long. 

We are all happy that Cuffy and his missus were able to get out of Egypt and Jordan before the SHTF.  It sure does look like things are going to be messy over there for a while.

Best tweet of the day (h/t arabist):  “A friend in Cairo:  The government can take away my freedom, but if they take away my internet porn, they’re going down.” 

– 

ICE-A-GEDDON is on its way to drop more Global Warming on parts of the country.  Even the Southern states aren’t going to be spared this latest round of Climate Change.  Generators and roof rakes were the topic of discussion for most of Sunday afternoon.

Michael had a great suggestion for dealing with power outages:

  1. Drive across the street to the Four Seasons, which already has its own generators.
  2. Present credit card at front desk.
  3. Check in.

BrewFan warned the Chief to put some snow tires on the Rascal; Scott had to brag.

J’Ames took 7th place cricket team and 12th place 501 singles at his dart tournament, so he almost made the entry fee back. 

XBrad had to quit playing darts in his league after a series of unfortunate accidents and claims against insurance; he was advised not to drink and throw.

BiW pointed out that now that guy has a cool glass eye that he can remove at parties; TiFW found some long-lost video of J’Ames and XBrad playing darts.

Revvy’s car died in a parking lot.

Shim suggested she needed to straighten the shag on the dash, then try starting it up again. 

Herr chimed in that new dice usually help gas mileage, too.  Of course, we all know what the problem really is….

TiFW popped in around 8:00 p.m., saw that the boys were still talking shop, so in lieu of a Summary poat, she passed along these oldies but goodies – they seemed appropriate:

Global Warming is still holding Wiser’s bottle of tequila hostage; fortunately he has more stashed in his house.

Many members of the Hostage Nation were in Football Withdrawal Mode (no, the Pro Bowl doesn’t count, you cretins!).

From Herr, we received this Important Baby Update: “I put my face down to talk to her, and the little shit kicked me in the nose.  Clearly, she has impeccable taste.”

Also: “So a storm is bearing down on us. The Frau is “noting some discomfort”…. and she’s dropped in the last day or so.  Do you know what the odds are? One.”

On the plus side, Herr’s dryer scored him 2 Pendleton wool shirts.

Wiser started watching Goldfinger on BBC America, and mentioned that he didn’t particularly care for the Bond girl in that movie. 

Andy: Wiser doesn’t like Pussy. Who knew?

Mare got a new pussy.  West’s friend’s pussy is named “Ginsu“.  BrewFan says pussy tastes like chicken.

Around 9:00 p.m. Wiser started the “Classic Movie Lines That Almost Weren’t” game.  Much fun was had by all who were around to play.  Among the entries were:

  1. Yippee-ka-yay, uncouth foreign terrorists! (MCPO)
  2. Excuse me while I take this paper out of my pocket to read to you fine folk. (Elliott)
  3. We’ll always have Des Moines. (MCPO)
  4. Tonight we dine at Chili’s! (Sohos)
  5. He’s Spartacus. (Wiser)
  6. I ate his liver.  With lettuce, cheese, onions, pickles and mayonnaise on a sesame seed bun. (West)
  7. We’re gonna need a bigger porta-potty. (BiW)
  8. The Semi-Precious…… (TiFW)
  9. Mama always said life was like a bag of jelly beans. (TiFW)
  10. There’s no place like Denny’s (Wiser)
  11. SOYLENT GREEN IS BRUSSEL SPROUTS!!!! (Wiser)
  12. Gooooood Afternoon, Terre Haute!!! (Wiser)
  13. Toto, I think we might actually be in Missouri right now. (Sean)

Scott saw a story on Fox News this morning.  Better watch out, Laura!

Pendejo started to thinking…..

Beasn said that Columbia is getting 10 inches.  TiFW batted her eyelashes and said “Well, hello!”.  GMLand (the poster formerly known as T2D) felt sorry for Columbia.  TiFW ditched Columbia for GML.

Pendejo said that Hotspur’s Secret Santa gift (purchased here) has got room for 4′ of manhood. Hotspur claims it was too small.

Today’s word of the day is: Non-severability.

Somehow, the conversation turned to free clinics and vaccinations, which led to today’s installment of Hostage Community Theater:

Hotspur: Is there a vaccine for the Hawaiian Disease?

BiW: KumonIwannalaya’s Revenge?

Hotspur: Lakkanookie

BiW: She moves in after the wedding ring goes on.

FIN

Why engineers are constantly making improvements to their designs…..

MCPO: What’s the difference between Hotspur hooking up his generator and Rosetta hooking up at the Blue Oyster Bar?

Aggie: 40 watts?

Hotspur: Rosetta prefers his female plug.

XBrad wondered if Aggie had gotten her hubby off today.  Car in thought that question was a little too personal; Pendejo liked the way XBrad was thinking; BiW started to wonder if perhaps he had married the wrong woman.

Judge Vinson gave XBrad a SCHAEDENBONER; XBrad wondered how he was supposed to take care of that without Obamacare.

Rosetta took care of XBrad’s problem.

Well, folks, the hour is fast approaching when this POS is scheduled to drop, so that’s it for your humble scribe today.  Everyone try to stay warm and dry for the next couple of days!

    MIND READER!!!!

  4. Fantastic Job TiF

  5. Saturday’s summaries should henceforth be called – Summammary.

    *bows*

  6. For the record, Frau’s discomfort was apparently my presence. I left for work this morning and nothing has happened all day.

    I respect that.

  7. Saturday’s summaries should henceforth be called – Summammary.

    I can always go for some mammary.

  8. Hey! I need a 6500 watt generator, an auto-switch panel, 3 packs of Marlboro Lights, 2 Coleman lanterns, a box of water-proof matches, a stick of Trident, 3 bottle of Irish Whiskey (12 years old -min), a DVD of PJM’s last vacation, 3 cats and an A-1 arctic parka.

    Can you get it here by noon tomorrow?

  9. Does anyone know Hunstman’s conservative bona fides?

  10. VMax, I promise, I’ll get you in another Summary poat soon!

  11. >> Michael had a great typically flippant suggestion for dealing with power outages

    Fixt

  12. Peeps – checking out for a bit, just informed that my wife’s (very close to) aunt just passed away. Will check in soon…

  13. >> Does anyone know Hunstman’s conservative bona fides?

    None.

    Next

  14. …and an A-1 arctic parka.

    70d here MCPO wearing flip flops shorts and a tee shirt.
    Just Sayin

  15. Hey! I need a 6500 watt generator, an auto-switch panel, 3 packs of Marlboro Lights, 2 Coleman lanterns, a box of water-proof matches, a stick of Trident, 3 bottle of Irish Whiskey (12 years old -min), a DVD of PJM’s last vacation, 3 cats and an A-1 arctic parka.

    No, but we have a tranny with a flashlight and a 30 pack of Miller Lite available.

  16. My condolences, GML :(

  17. Andy – I ain’t got Michael’s mad Benjamins.

  18. I had to take DD to her FCA meeting and the fog is so bad I can’t see hardly at all and I have to go pick her back up

  19. MCPO, what’s the weather there? Has the shit started yet?

    It appears that we’re going to get the dry rubber fist of a few inch layer of ice and then a shitload of snow.

    That’s going to be problematic.

  20. People in Hell want icewater.

  21. >> Does anyone know Hunstman’s conservative bona fides?

    None.

    Next

    Really? He’s Utah? He can’t be a hippie.

    Or do you think he’s toast from the start because he agreed to be part of the administration?

  22. Here, Rosetta: http://dailycaller.com/2011/01/11/could-jon-huntsman-really-be-the-republican-presidential-nominee-in-2012/

    Following Obama’s victory in 2008, Huntsman said Republicans needed to soften their positions on climate change and gay marriage, a stance could come back to haunt him.

    I could care less about ghey marriage as a federal issue, but no serious conservative can fall for AlGore’s bullshit in any form.

  23. Rosie – Snow tonight and tomorrow turning to ice in the afternoon. They are expecting almost a half inch of ice. A half inch of ice means I’ll be out of power for about 3 days.

  24. Thoughts and prayers going out to your family, GML –

  25. People in Hell want icewater.

    People in ice may want some hell soon.

  26. Speaking of which, did you see the piece on Newt Gingrich (Ethanol Whore-GA) in today’s WSJ?

  27. There are two types of people in this world. Those who prepare for a blizzard, and those who ring the doorbell and say, “Hoped I could borrow…”

  28. did you see the piece on Newt Gingrich (Ethanol Whore-GA) in today’s WSJ?

    Please tell me they have a picture of him blowing a goat so I don’t have to worry about him as an actual contender.

  29. I used to respect Newt Andy
    nownotsomuch

  30. >> Please tell me they have a picture of him blowing a goat so I don’t have to worry about him as an actual contender.

    Close: http://bit.ly/cMFl9s

  31. Blowing a goat? Has he gone full flaming democrat?

  32. Newt’s zenith was damned near 20 years ago. Now he just needs to STFU.

  33. That is worse than a goat.

  34. “Don’t feed them until you are up for an hour”

    Lipstick that is brilliant. We screwed that part up and because of it I can never sleep past 7:15 AM.

    Thanks Scott. She’d sleep on the bed and only once a week make a half-hearted effort which never gave her instant gratification. As a matter of fact, if she woke me up I would make her wait longer for breakfast, ha!

  35. Yeah, at least you’d come away from your encounter with the goat with your dignity and a modicum of self-respect.

  36. Newt is a philandering idiot.

  37. Lipstick, are you going to be rooting for the Packers Sunday?

    *ducks and runs*

  38. I agree, Andy. His Contract With America was a FAIL of epic proportions. Just go away, and be happy your undescended testicles saved you from having us cut them off and stuff them in your mouth.

  39. I could care less about ghey marriage as a federal issue, but no serious conservative can fall for AlGore’s bullshit in any form.

    Gah. Green is the scarlet color so to speak. That’s a problem.

  40. Wisconsin loves fudge.

  41. Ok, time for me to take a Folly, and then rest, since I slept about 45 mins last night. Y’all have a great evening!

  42. Yep. Anybody who falls for that bullshit has no sense or balls.

    They’re just jumping on the bandwagon, going with the flow, [insert appropriate cliche], etc.

    That’s the exact opposite of the qualities we need in a POTUS if we want to right this ship.

  43. Close: http://bit.ly/cMFl9s

    Newt has no chance, even without that damning picture.

    This is going to be an uncomfortable process of elimination.

    Newt has no chance.

    Huckabee has no chance.

    Sadly, Palin has no chance.

    2012 is looking like shit!!!

  44. I must admit that I want Green Bay to win.

  45. Environmentalist = Communist

    Sierra Club = Young Socialist Workers Union

    Greenpeace = KGB

  46. Vote for Pedro

  47. MARE! 2012.

  48. NASA = Ponies in SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!

  49. *Gives Brewfan the “Superior Steeler Stinkeye.”

  50. I bet Newt eats boogers.

  51. For Brewfan:

    http://genethewerewolf.bandcamp.com/track/pittsburgh-steelers-polka-2011

  52. 2012 is looking like shit!!!

    Step One: Amend the constitution so that I may run.
    Step Two: Vote for me, honest Elliott
    Step Three: Return America to its rightful place in the nightmares of Canada and others
    Step Four: Tribute!

  53. >> 2012 is looking like shit!!!

    The only person making noise right now that I like is Herman Cain.

    Well, I like Rick Santorum too, but he has my front yard’s chance in hell of winning.

  54. Don’t need to amend the Constitution. Kenyan in the White House = precedent set.

  55. I must admit that I want Green Bay to win.

    I take back all those bad things I said about you.

  56. MCPO, I love lists!!

    Newt sold his soul. He’s going to be paying. ASSDOUCHE!!

    I like the way Scott thinks.

    I want a Ryan/Rubio ticket in 2012.

  57. Andy – I also like Santorum, but he couldn’t beat BobFuckingCasey!!!!

  58. Don’t need to amend the Constitution. Kenyan in the White House = precedent set.

    But I can’t produce any papers suggesting that I am likely 35 or older. I do, however, have many documents that show I am not. Your precedent will not hold properly.

  59. That’s right, HS.

    Elliott, resist providing your birth certificate at all costs. After the election, apparently no one has standing to force you to produce it.

  60. Santorum is a tool. Ever hear him on Bill Bennett? The mother fucker is incoherent for all of his umms, uhhs, and ahhs. I think his synapses are few and far.

  61. If all else fails, I only have 9 years before I can really run for president. That’s gotta be a terrifying thought for most of you.

  62. >> I want a Ryan/Rubio ticket in 2012.

    Hard to run for President from the house, but Ryan clearly has the numbers geek vote.

    *Raises hand*

    OTOH, I’m confident that we’ll see President Rubio in the White House at some point (presuming he wants that).

  63. For Lipstick:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3pFD-xdPRE

  64. I could definitely vote for Herman Cain. I’d really like to have his stance on gun control laid out for me to look at without doing any work though.

  65. I’ll tell you what, though, the primary Bush legacy is a weak, weak bench of conservative candidates with national name recognition.

    The fact that anybody would even mention Gingrich as a serious candidate is laughable. Hell, why not dredge up Bob Dole for another try while we’re at it?

  66. The only person making noise right now that I like is Herman Cain.

    Well, I like Rick Santorum too, but he has my front yard’s chance in hell of winning.

    Unsurprisingly you and I are on the same page.

    Herman Cain is great but he has too long of a road to 2012.

    Someone needs to get to Pence. At this point, Pence-Cain is the best thing I can see.

    DeMint is also a non-starter in the Presidential race.

    The tea party had enough mojo to get true conservatives in Congress and the Senate but it takes a bit longer to age a Presidential candidate.

    We have about 10 months to find someone.

  67. Pawlenty???

  68. Has anyone here seen SALT?
    Is it any good?

    I snicker every time I think about it.

  69. FUCK SALT!

  70. >> Pawlenty???

    *Points*

    *Laughs*

  71. I vote for Bill Bennett!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hands down the best man for the job

  72. Pawlenty has his own Pelosi couch: http://www.startribune.com/politics/state/14167711.html

    Now that Heller is on the books, the AGW scam is my new single issue.

  73. Exactly Brew

    Angelina, yum.

  74. I like Bennett, but, hey, if we’re going for talk radio hosts …

  75. How about NOT doing things the way we’ve always done them and we think outside of the box but inside conservatism and with sense and forethought?

    Ryan/Rubio

    Yes, yes, I know Reagan ran many times for many campaigns, however, it doesn’t have to happen that way.

  76. Pawlenty has no fire and we need fire. He could be the second coming of Christ but he’s too timid to be elected.

    We need a true unapologetic conservative who can hit back or we have no chance.

  77. Beasn would also be a strong candidate.

  78. Did anybody give anybody else the ancient Chinese “Touch of Death” today?

  79. Andy – Thanks for the gouge. But, that was before ClimateGate. Has Pawlenty changed his mind or is he still on the Glowball Worming Wagon?

  80. “Beasn would also be a strong candidate.”

    I agree.

  81. Pawlenty has no fire and we need fire. He could be the second coming of Christ but he’s too timid to be elected.

    We need a true unapologetic conservative who can hit back or we have no chance.

    Eddiebear for prez! He’ll be the first president to say “fuck” in a SoTU address.

  82. I think Bennett is best Andy. No one, not to diss Rush has more experience or is smarter, and has a better temperament. What a Great Leader.

  83. Rosie – We got all of that personality and pizazz bullshit with the iWon. I want a conservative that has proven executive experience.

  84. I would probably go Rubio/Ryan on that ticket.

    Rubio clearly isn’t ready to be President but neither was Obama so that’s not a disqualifier.

    As smart and as right on as Ryan is about the reforms needed, he’s not an inspiring leader to non-conservatives.

    Rubio has leadership qualities but he’s green.

    This is the suck math for us in 2012.

  85. A Bennett / Rosetta ticket!

    Beasn as Sec of State, kick foggy bottoms ass in line

  86. Rosetta, who is younger? I thought Rubio was.

    I wouldn’t mind a sober minded, thoughtful, smart conservative President. Ryan or Rubio works, however, Rubio can be a little more “touch the crowd” type of guy, but really I don’t know that.

  87. Heh, yeah, we only really have one inspiring person on the republican side, and half the base hates her, making her toxic.

    anyone follow college basketball? Should be a good game between Texas and Texas A&M. On right now, ESPN.

  88. Jeez, just watching you guys talk about 2012 is depressing.

  89. >> Has Pawlenty changed his mind or is he still on the Glowball Worming Wagon?

    He changed his mind. Or so he says.

  90. Actually, Rubio is probably pretty inspiring, but he hasn’t done anything yet. We’d be sitting in the same boat as the current resident of 1600 Penn Ave, as far as experience goes.

  91. >> Beasn would also be a strong candidate.

    Well, yeah. But as I’ve secured the position of Secretary of the Treasury in her first administration, I’m biased.

  92. Jeez, just watching you guys talk about 2012 is depressing.

    Amen. How about some fart jokes or something.

  93. He changed his mind. Or so he says.

    See Romney, Mitch, re: Abortion.

  94. Revvy, the funny thing is we are mostly Reagan Optimists, but the GOP keeps screwing us over with “next in line” candidates that are almost embarrassing.

    McCain??

    Dole??

  95. *rips off Rosetta’s goatee and tucks it under arm*

    *runs it in for a touchdown and spikes it viciously into the turf; crowd goes WILD*

    *is carried on shoulders of celebrating teammates*

  96. Don’t leave Rick Perry out

  97. Rubio and Jindal are promising, I have high hopes for Haily (SC). Things will shake out. We will get McCain V2 and the Tea Party pick. Then Huccabee Giuliani and Mitt?

    Who knows what the primaries will give us?

  98. Coulter’s on Hannidouche right now …

    Coulter 2012!

  99. lauraw! Pull my finger…

  100. Has Rubio had a job? If so, he’s way ahead of Obama.

    Seriously, what jobs has Rubio had?

  101. anyone follow college basketball?

    The Ohio State – Northwestern game on Saturday was a barn-burner.

  102. But as I’ve secured the position of Secretary of the Treasury in her first administration, I’m biased.

    Bias never stopped anybody, you still get a vote, same as Biden. I’d rather have you vote than Vice President Pudding Cup.

  103. Hi LauraW!!!

  104. *Has blood running down shoulder from Laura’s cleat.

  105. LAURAW!!!!

    {{{hug}}}

    *ducks Scott’s trebuchet-launched block of ice*

  106. Revvy, the funny thing is we are mostly Reagan Optimists, but the GOP keeps screwing us over with “next in line” candidates that are almost embarrassing.

    McCain??

    Dole??

    THERE IS NO SUCH FUCKING THING AS “YOUR TURN”!!!!

  107. Rosie – We got all of that personality and pizazz bullshit with the iWon. I want a conservative that has proven executive experience.

    Those two things are not mutually exclusive but I am certain if we put up a thoughtful, quiet and considerate conservative, we’re going to lose.

    Obama is a shit disturber and a crowd siren. He’s also dumb as shit but he can make noise. If we can’t counteract his loud liberal stupid with a forceful conservative smart, I don’t think we have a chance.

    If this country elected competence alone, Obama wouldn’t be President but he is.

    As much as Pawlenty has going for him on the smarts and the correct policy attributes, he will look like a shrinking violet wimp in a debate with Obama.

    That’s not how it should be but it is how it is.

    This is why I wish there was a video of Pawlenty kicking someone’s ass or punching a hippie.

  108. Has anyone here seen SALT?

    I just bought 2 50# bags.

    And I got a nice present from the neighbors. Last snowstorm, they were out of town and their plow guy did not come by, so I did their driveway (I used the snowblower, you pervs).They came back at me with a gift certificate to the local liquor store. I always buy my Jack Daniels locally – it’s more sustainable.

    In other good news, the local garage gave me back my snowblower front end today, all welded up, so all I have to do is reassemble and I can has snowblower again. Which is good, because without we ain’t goin nowhere, the driveway resembles a ski slope more than a road.

  109. I remember the conversation Rosetta and I had a few years back all about Palin’s chances.

    Seems I was right, sadly. The media has done an incredible job convincing everyone that she’s unqualified. Shame on any Republican who has bought into that assessment, but it’s gonna take more than just Republicans to get here elected.

  110. Unfortunately Mare,
    Rubio went from his JD to City Commissioner, then to the state house. Now to the fed senate.

    No real job

  111. If this country elected competence alone, Obama wouldn’t be President Dogcatcher.

    FTFY

  112. I’ll tell you what, though, the primary Bush legacy is a weak, weak bench of conservative candidates with national name recognition.

    OK, I’ll concede that Bush is responsible for Global Warming, AIDS, and my fallen arches, but how the hell is that Bush’s fault?

  113. *rips off Rosetta’s goatee and tucks it under arm*

    *runs it in for a touchdown and spikes it viciously into the turf; crowd goes WILD*

    *is carried on shoulders of celebrating teammates*

    Well look what the cat dragge…http://tinyurl.com/43e2ej

  114. Eddiebear for prez! He’ll be the first president to say “fuck” in a SoTU address.

    Just imagine him addressing the UN. It would be glorious

  115. THERE IS NO SUCH FUCKING THING AS “YOUR TURN”!!!!

    No shit. What is this? Hopfuckingscotch?

  116. Shame on any Republican who has bought into that assessment

    Word up my brother. I’m not underestimating her either. It seems to me that if past performance is the best indicator of future performance (her beating the RINO machine in Alaska to win) she still is in the fight. You win a couple of primaries and pretty soon you have a horse race.

    Dammit, I didn’t want to talk politics tonight!

  117. Anyone seen a hump attached to a gal run through here.

  118. Those two things are not mutually exclusive but I am certain if we put up a thoughtful, quiet and considerate conservative, we’re going to lose.

    Yup. Remember when McCain said Barry would make a good president? I don’t want any of that civility or collegiality bullshit. I want someone who has the balls to say he’s the worst president since Carter ever and start listing the reasons why.

  119. “No real job”

    Uh oh.

    Thanks, Vman.

  120. Hi everybody!

    *pulls Brew’s finger*

  121. OK, I’ll concede that Bush is responsible for Global Warming, AIDS, and my fallen arches, but how the hell is that Bush’s fault?

    Bush’s inability or unwillingness to clearly represent the conservative POV gave rise to a huge segment of weak Republicans who feel it is more important to go along than it is to actually stand for something.

    It’s gonna be a rough road back from that.

  122. “I don’t want any of that civility or collegiality bullshit. I want someone who has the balls to say he’s the worst president since Carter ever and start listing the reasons why.”

    Andy and I are, well, you know…..

    Didn’t Ryan kind of tell Obama his was a dumbshit and wrong and full of gluten and stuff?

  123. *farts the final movement (see what I did there) to the William Tell Overture*

  124. Shame on any Republican who has bought into that assessment, but it’s gonna take more than just Republicans to get here elected.

    Bingo! Just so my position on this is clear, I’ve already voted for Palin once … I damned sure didn’t vote for the old guy.

    When I say I don’t think she can win, I mean exactly what wiser hit on there. I don’t think she can pull people in the middle to her side.

    It’s a shame.

  125. John Bolton / M. Bachmann….

    Foreign Policy / Economy

    Beauty & The Beast…. Intelligence Returns to DC

  126. Eddiebear for prez! He’ll be the first president to say “fuck” in a SoTU address.

    Just imagine him addressing the UN. It would be glorious

    Eddiebear! The new fucking civility!

    I like it. And him.

  127. Speaking of the U.N., we need John Bolton to tell the whole U. N. to go F88k themselves.

  128. Impressive Brewfart.

    L.W.

    *Does the humpty dance*

  129. Have yall ever done other stuff besides go srtaight to sleep? Things get s little weird

  130. I damned sure didn’t vote for the old guy.

    I was voting for that douche only because he was the lesser of two evils… barely.

    Palin actually gave me a reason to vote FOR them, as opposed to AGAINST the other guys.

  131. Count me as voting for Palin once already. Saw a political rally for her in Des Moines towards the end of the race, and Vet’s auditorium was PACKED! Many people that I never expected to see were there. Didn’t even know they were politically active.

    That’s the type of person she can motivate.

  132. Laura! Glad to see you back – don’t let Scott get hold of the no-fly list again…..

  133. >> how the hell is that Bush’s fault

    Two words: “compassionate conservatism”

    And I don’t mean Bush’s fault, per se. What I mean is that on his watch the GOP became the party of smaller big government. Conservatives need not apply.

  134. I remember the conversation Rosetta and I had a few years back all about Palin’s chances.

    Seems I was right, sadly. The media has done an incredible job convincing everyone that she’s unqualified. Shame on any Republican who has bought into that assessment, but it’s gonna take more than just Republicans to get here elected.

    That’s right. Sad but true.

    However, though I may concede that you were correct for 2012, I still think that I may be right ultimately.

    There is something about her that terrifies the left and that, more than anything, makes me think she possesses what we need. Not that I think she’s lacking in any way. I just think that if she wasn’t a true threat to the left, they wouldn’t waste the time and energy on her.

    I think they see her potential as a Reagan-type figure more than many people on the right do and that shouldn’t be discounted.

  135. Have yall ever done other stuff besides go srtaight to sleep?

    *cough.

    Why, whatever do you mean?

  136. Hiya Lauraw!

    Speaking of Palin, I was semi-involved in a fun conversation about her at the doctor’s office this quarter. I attempted to explain to the people there that this whole idea of her being a stupid rube was pretty much entirely a media fabrication… it didn’t go over well.

  137. Palin actually gave me a reason to vote FOR them, as opposed to AGAINST the other guys.

    My dad actually opened up his checkbook after her convention speech. Suffice to say he has not done so since.

  138. I’ll buy that argument, Wiser, but anybody truly excellent should not have let that slow them down. I think the problem at this time is lack of supply, not demand or ‘atmosphere’. I mean, who is waiting in the wings who just did not get (re) elected? Tancredo?

    Yeah, Bush was weak in some ways, and too much of a squish politically, but blaming the weak field on him gives him too much ‘credit’. I think a better case could be made blaming the entire Republican party.

  139. “I just think that if she wasn’t a true threat to the left, they wouldn’t waste the time and energy on her.”

    Completely agree. I think they know from now on anyone who even REMOTELY smells of Reagan must be marginalized immediately.

    And compassionate conservatism can kiss my ass.

    A government is not supposed to feel.

  140. The only candidate that has not said anything that offends me ideologically is Palin, all ‘electability’ argument aside.

  141. As for Ms. Palin, I’d be willing to bet that the Dems have been up to their old dirty tricks again, and have been “concern trolling” every conservative site they can find. I’d also be willing to bet they’ve been doing that since she was announced as the VP candidate.

    They are SCARED of her, and will do ANYTHING to not have her as the R candidate in 2012 – regardless of what they may say in public.

    If they can seed enough doubt in peoples’ minds, they think they can win against her. But that poll at Ace’s place the other day should tell you how much people still want her to be the R candidate.

    Right now, she’s the only candidate I can see who has the cajones to take on the Dem machine and bring it down…..

  142. And compassionate conservatism can kiss my ass.

    A government is not supposed to feel.

    *smooooooch*

    One of my favorite lines of Rush’s: Conservatism is compassionate by its very nature. It doesn’t need a modifier.

  143. Levin interviewed Mike Reagan the other day…..
    sounds like he’s got plans

  144. >> I think a better case could be made blaming the entire Republican party.

    That’s my follow-up comment. But he was the leader of the party, so, BOOOOSH!!!!11!!1

  145. The Ambin wins. Good night all

  146. I think they see her potential as a Reagan-type figure more than many people on the right do and that shouldn’t be discounted.

    Palin’s problem is that she gets a passionate response from both her supporters and her detractors. And neither side will ever be convinced otherwise. Too many people have convinced themselves that she is evil personified and personifies everything that is wrong with Conservative Republicans.

    Those who hate her (including those self-serving, back-stabbing bastards in the Republican party) are too emotionally invested in their Palin-hatred to ever consider changing their minds about her.

    Look at the absolute unbridled glee they all took in blaming her for the Tucson shootings. And even after the truth came out, it doesn’t matter at all to them . They hate her and they will never, ever give that hatred up.

    It’s like a religion with those fucktards.

  147. don’t let Scott get hold of the no-fly list again…..

    Nahhh. Turns out I was delayed because the other passengers were suspicious of the hunchback.

    So I let TSA x-ray it. Then there was all this vomiting, they stamped it ‘Medical Waste’ and made me ride in cargo with the pets.
    Wasn’t bad, they put an extra packet of peanuts and a bloody mary in my crate.

  148. Bush’s inability or unwillingness to clearly represent the conservative POV gave rise to a huge segment of weak Republicans who feel it is more important to go along than it is to actually stand for something.

    It’s gonna be a rough road back from that.

    Exactly correct. Bush’s excellence on the war on terror was unfortunately equaled with his suck on fiscal domestic and that broke a lot of conservative ribs.

    We can recover from that but he gave away a moral high ground that we had owned for a generation.

  149. “The only candidate that has not said anything that offends me ideologically is Palin, all ‘electability’ argument aside.”

    I think I agree, not reviewing everything she’s ever said. But I’m not looking for the perfect person or even the perfect candidate, I’m looking for someone that will, in the face of all the BS, staunchly support conservative issues.

    Rubio and Ryan qualify under those conditions also.

  150. I am not a Palinista. I like her and what she represents. OK I Love her. I am a pragmatist and think she needs seasoning. I would be torn between Cain and Pailin. Right now I am a Cain supporter. I am flexible at this point.

  151. My prediction for 2012: Economy recovers despite Obama (and because of the GOP House). Obama wins reeleection because he’s a lying, conniving, amoral sack of shit snake oil salesman.

    Under this theory, I wouldn’t want Palin to be the nominee, because that would be her one shot at it.

  152. and have been “concern trolling”

    Why bother doing that? There are enough douchebags on our side of the aisle who are more than happy to assist in her destruction.

    See: Krauthammer, Allahpundit, Rove, etc.

  153. So I let TSA x-ray it.

    You should have refused the xray and forced them to do the pat-down manually…..

  154. “Bush’s inability or unwillingness to clearly represent the conservative POV gave rise to a huge segment of weak Republicans who feel it is more important to go along than it is to actually stand for something.
    It’s gonna be a rough road back from that.”

    I agree also.

    I am eternally grateful that Bush was President and not Gore during 9/11. For that Bush earned some respect.

  155. >> Those who hate her (including those self-serving, back-stabbing bastards in the Republican party) are too emotionally invested in their Palin-hatred to ever consider changing their minds about her.

    Oh, yeah. Two names to remember in 2012: Nicolle Wallace and Steve Schmidt. Any GOP campaign that these two fuckwits attach themselves to can count me out.

  156. Garnet and her ball.

    Wow, a repeat of Clinton’s second term! Oh goody!

  158. “She and Zeke fight over balls”

    So do Rosetta and MCPO.

  159. I’m looking for someone that will, in the face of all the BS, staunchly support conservative issues.

    And be electable. I think Rubio and Ryan don’t meet that standard yet.

  160. That was loaded Mare.

    Yeah, I know. Not very original.

  162. Obama wins reeleection because he’s a lying, conniving, amoral sack of shit snake oil salesman.

    I could deal with that if we take back the Senate and increase our majority in the House. Of course, that would also require some people with real backbones to keep the pressure on.

  163. It’s a good day. Mr. RFH did not need bail money.

  164. “It’s a good day. Mr. RFH did not need bail money.”

    HA! Did another douche try to impede his upward mobility?

    Okay Roamy, how do you feel today?

  165. Guys, how come your generation had to fuck up politics so bad just in time to make me have to deal with it? :(

  166. >> I could deal with that if we take back the Senate and increase our majority in the House.

    If not for the rule by regulatory fiat (e.g., EPA CO2) that Odouchebag is oh too willing to do, I would agree.

    Hell, with some of the asshats we have in the senate, I’m not even sure we could stop a couple more horrible nominees from getting on the Supreme Court.

  167. Guys, how come your generation had to fuck up politics so bad just in time to make me have to deal with it? :(

    A belief that liberals really had the best interests of this country at heart..

    I guarantee we won’t ever make that mistake again.

  168. Rubio and Ryan qualify under those conditions also.

    Agreed.

    G’night, sohos.

    I’m going out to the garage, starting a fire in the stove, and getting started wrenching. Later.

  170. Guys, how come your generation had to fuck up politics so bad just in time to make me have to deal with it? :(

    Heh. I said the same thing when I was your age.

  171. Hell, with some of the asshats we have in the senate, I’m not even sure we could stop a couple more horrible nominees from getting on the Supreme Court.

    I mean take back the Senate with such a huge majority that the asshats would be made completely meaningless.

  172. ‘Night West.

  173. later, West. Best of luck.

  174. ’12 is set up for a big win in the senate. Probably not that big, though.

  175. Palin’s problem is that she gets a passionate response from both her supporters and her detractors. And neither side will ever be convinced otherwise. Too many people have convinced themselves that she is evil personified and personifies everything that is wrong with Conservative Republicans.

    She is either angel or devil right now for sure. But she’s been on the national scene for 3 years. In another 6 or 7 years will it be as easy to paint her as the devil? I seriously doubt that.

    But the odds of her overcoming the current rip tide of bullshit about her for 2012 are too high I think.

    But my jury is still out on 2016 or 2020.

    Palin-Rosetta 2020!!!

    Best ticket ever.

  176. If not for the rule by regulatory fiat (e.g., EPA CO2) that Odouchebag is oh too willing to do, I would agree.

    And Senators with enough balls can stop that shit in it’s tracks.

    For example: http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/31/wyoming-senator-seeks-to-lasso-e-p-a/?smid=tw-nytimesscience

  177. >> Palin-Rosetta 2020!!!

    Palin’s on top. Hawt!

  178. Mare, my boss was being a meddler.

    No, I won’t tell you when I’ll be done with the test when I don’t even have the material in my hot little hands. No, you will not ask me what size samples I’m doing, when I’ve been doing the same test the same exact way for the last 15 years. Yes, I will keep the customer informed of my progress. Get the fuck out of my way.

  179. G’night Dad.

  180. Awright, time for answers and questions. I’ll be back later.

  181. Oh, and thank you for asking how I’m doing, mare. I do a little bit, rest a little bit. I have a doctor’s appointment Thursday.

  182. ” Get the fuck out of my way.”

    Okay, whatever you say, Roamy.

    *runs as fast as I can….in any direction

  183. In another 6 or 7 years will it be as easy to paint her as the devil? I seriously doubt that.

    Guaranteed. The frothing of the lunatics is endless. She has been doing a great job of exposing the stupidity of the current batch of whack=jobs, but how long can she fight the good fight?

    I hope I’m wrong.

  198. I love how the news is pushing the idea that you MUST GET THE SNOW OFF YOUR ROOF OMG!!!! then immediately goes into stories about people who have gotten hurt falling off their roofs.

    Every single building they have reported on that has collapsed has A) been empty/out of business (no heat) and B) have a flat roof.

    But…. OMG YOU MUST RAKE YOUR ROOF OR YOU WILL DIE!!!!!!!!!

  199. Speaking of back…hi all.

    Hey, rudy! You finally got paroled, huh?

  200. something like that…working out some personal things…some housing issues..other stuff. got things on the upswing now.

  201. I love how the news is pushing the idea that you MUST GET THE SNOW OFF YOUR ROOF OMG!!!! then immediately goes into stories about people who have gotten hurt falling off their roofs.

    I think we’ve already established that the media has no concept of its actions having consequences. That’s for all the little people.

  202. whodafuck be rudytbone and shit?

    I been around here fo mostly a year and I ain’t hearda such.

  208. ‘Night PG.

    Hiya, Rudy.

  209. I have lived in CT for almost 50 years and I have never seen such insane reporting about snow on roofs. Yet, they have yet to show me an actual house that wasn’t abandoned or a building without a flat roof that has collapsed.

    Guess the stories about the millions of people in the grocery stores got old.

  210. Floyd is going to run in 2012.

    And run and run and run.

    And then fart and nap.

  211. I think I need a summary of this thread.

  212. I’m just tolerated because some people saw me at a couple meat-ups.

    Well, that and we’re just waiting to see if you fall under Xbrad’s spell, so we can laugh at you.

  213. I think I need a summary of this thread.

    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!

    It was pretty much a rip fest on your ass.

  214. Collapsing is only one issue though, wiser.

    Ice dams can be a serious pain in the vag.

  215. You get this thread’s summary tomorrow, buster – the scribe is officially off the clock tonight…..

  216. Ice dams can be a serious pain in the vag.

    True, but all they talk about is the danger of collapse. They’ve got people scared to death. My neighbor was on his roof today shoveling off about 2 inches of snow.

    I asked him what the hell he was doing and why he never felt the need to do that before?

    “Well, I’ve been watching the news………”

    I wished him luck and went back inside.

  217. the scribe is officially off the clock tonight…..

    From the looks of this basketball game, so are your Aggies. Ugh.

  218. Normally I would go back and close that stupid HTML tag but fuck it.

  219. Rudy has been here for a while.
    Not quite as long as Robert, but I believe a certain school in South Bend is involved.

  220. Well, that and we’re just waiting to see if you fall under Xbrad’s spell, so we can laugh at you.

    Huh? What? Was I supposed to notice him or something?

  221. I hope that the news has been covering the need for insulation, in their coverage of ice dams. They did that here last year, and the home improvement stores had a run on insulation. People probably filled their crawl spaces with it.

  222. It was pretty much a rip fest on your ass.

    Yeah, about that. Sorry to everyone about the rash. A little penecillin should clear that right up.

  223. I would personally like a comment summary every 30 comments.

    I don’t like having the scroll up to read everyone’s dumb shit.

    *orders 37 pizzas to be delivered to Jay in Ames*

  224. That is pretty funny. What with all the hundred-plus year old houses around here of the steeply-pitched roof variety.

    Must’ve never snowed before.

  225. Huh? What? Was I supposed to notice him or something?

    heh heh heh. Xbrad’s in stealth-mode.

  226. I always thought that snow on the roof was a sign of a well insulated attic. And, snow itself is an insulator. People are trying to get snow off of pitched roofs? Srsly?

  227. What is this “snow” of which you speak?

  228. I’m signing out to deal with:

    (A) The coming ice age

    (B) Your mom

    (C) Booze and a flick

    Choose wisely.

    It’s Madness, I tell you…. MAAAAAADNESSSSS!!!!!!

  234. People in teh NEast tired of getting off on weather pron, so now news crews are touting the dangers on snow on the roof? That’s as smart as de-icing your windshield with boiling water.

  235. It’s over there. Right next to your shake weight.

  236. Speaking of Robert, a certain somebody STILL hasn’t posted pictures of what Santa brought his kitties for Christmas……

  237. The endless SNOWMAGEDDON!!11!1 coverage is pretty funny to this ol’ southern boy. I’ve been up here for about 4 years, and I don’t want to hear one of these assholes laugh about the fact that we shut Atlanta down for a couple of inches of snow.

    They have road-clearing equipment galore here, but people still freak out at the sight of the first flake.

  238. People in teh NEast tired of getting off on weather pron, so now news crews are touting the dangers on snow on the roof?

    There needs to be a crisis or it’s just not worth turning the cameras on.

    I also love how when the roads are absolutely unpassable and the Governor has asked all non-essential people to stay home while they clear the highways, each television news team takes that as a signal to get in their vans and drive somewhere for the standard “Bob, the weather is really bad out here right now and you should probably not drive if you don’t have to” reports.

    They had one the other morning where you couldn’t even see the person doing the report or what she was pointing to, because the lens was covered with moisture.

    D’uh.

  239. One thing that really blows about this is all the tax dollars that have to go toward snow removal.

    Just think how many more cushy no-show jobs we could have if global warming would just kick in.

  240. Problem is the snowbank tunnel-effect. Cars on side streets can’t see you and you can’t see them.

    I saw crews on Saturday clearing the banks around some highway ramps that had become tunnels, but most of the primary roads are still crappy.

    Yesterday I had to get out in the road in front of my house to spot for my friend so she could get out of my driveway, which is a high tunnel now too.

  241. “And good politics tonight. I like that bullshit.”

    I have to agree. We seem to be able to hash some stuff out here without slashing each other’s throat.

    I love it.

  242. TV weather douche is freaking out! OMG! Snow! Sleet! Ice! More Snow!

    OMG!

    *throws hands in the air, runs in small circle screaming*

    OK, I feel better now.

  243. Yeah, we have that same problem here in our little neck of the woods, Laura.

    +1 for the SUV … the height helps.

  244. Laura – How high are the piles at the end of your drive?

  245. Problem is the snowbank tunnel-effect.

    wiserbride is angry and wants to call the city to demand they clear the snowbanks at the end of our road. I tried to explain to her that it’s like that at every single intersection in town and I doubt they are gonna take her complaint seriously.

  246. It’s so cold, I had to put on a long sleeved shirt…

  247. That, wiser, and a more practical issue. Where the hell are they going to put the snow?

    I had the bright idea last night that I should look into renting a bobcat and hauling my front yard snow to the back and making a giant pile to avoid the runoff problem when all this shit melts. I may yet do it.

  248. Still in shorts and flip flops

    12 indians!

  249. They called off school here in Lincoln already. They’re calling for 1-2 inches. They called off school the night before because of expecting 1-2 inches. What the fuck is that? This is Nebraska, we’ve seen snow before.

  250. his is Nebraska, we’ve seen snow before.

    Yeah, but you all forget what it’s like between snowstorms..

    stoopid Nebraskanians.

  251. I don’t know, MCPO. I drive a Ranger and Scott had to spot for me on Wednesday morning after the last storm, so they had to be around 6-7 feet then. But it melted down a lot since then and I can see more. My GF drives a low little Honda Accord and was totally blind.

    We refer to the driveway as ‘the Bee-hole’ right now.

  252. What?
    Are you stereotyping Indians as drunks? I am filing a law suite!

    My minions will throw fish guts on your parade!!!!!

  253. Well, if you guys had planned properly, when you ARE snowbound, you could spend your time watching all 8 seasons of One Tree Hill…

  256. Laura, when you pulled Brewfan’s finger, did you rip it off and use it to scratch an itch on the hump?

  257. On Saturday morning on my way to work, there were heavy equipment crews at two highway exits, clearing the snow from exits that had become very tunnelish.

    Nothing like that effort going on on the town roads.

    One thing that really blows about this is all the tax dollars that have to go toward snow removal.

    Yeah, one of my customers was spouting off about how great it was for the economy, all this wonderful WORK going on! Oh happy plowmen!

    I don’t know how your city government does it there, but here they blew through all the snow money by the middle of January, last year. I suspect you are in the same boat, and now you get a little added bonus on your taxes, whether on sales tax or property tax.

    This year we are a little better, but we haven’t had nearly as much snow.

  267. all this wonderful WORK going on!

    And hey, the gov can just print out more money when they run out! It’s magic!

  271. Well, we’re under a winter storm warning here in North Texas – the next 4 days will all be sub-freezing, and we are expecting enough precipitation to make it dangerous around these parts.

    Ice + North Texas drivers = Lots of wrecks

    Being North Texas, we also get the lovely wind sweeping down from Canada with no windbreaks to speak of. Wind chills expected to be near zero. This should be pleasant…..

  272. Well, he wasn’t talking so much about the state vehicles as the independent guys, clearing driveways, giving their business to gas stations and other businesses, etc.

    -but ultimately it’s the same thing. This idea that society profits somehow from having to clean up after catastrophe.

    Basic economics has no friend in the media, this is how we get these stupid ideas. Remember them crowing after the last big hurricanes that crushed Florida?

    “Construction boom!!! SCOOOORE!!”

    I can’t believe these microcephalic toads look at average folks with common sense, and call US retards.

  273. We run a tight town budget here. About 50% of it is for snow removal, and this year has been a bitch.

    *Remembers to pay property taxes tomorrow*

  276. Yep, laura. The idea that the simple act of money changing hands is a good thing gets you stupid shit like an $862 billion spendulus to nowhere.

    My favorite anecdote was Milton Friedman’s dig at Keynes, where he said that two neighbors could be hired to dig holes in each other’s back yards during the day and then they could go home and fill the holes in at night. The Keynesians would count this as two jobs created.

  277. nice one Andy I’ll have to remember that one for the inlaws

  299. Sleep tight

  300. lol….BACON.

    Need to try out the new bacon press….have a twin pack of Wright brand bacon from Sam’s club in the fridge….sounding like a plan.

  301. Bacon makes everything better.

  302. Boo.
    What’d I miss?

  303. I’m the wrong person to ask that question. I’ve been in and out of here all night.

    Kind of like sex without the payoff.

  304. No happy ending BiW?

  305. Nothing that sends a tingle up my leg.

  306. Bacon makes everything better.

    Except for the Seder.

    As usual, I provided incredibly intelligent political analysis, interspersed with numerous witticisms and charming bon mots.

    How’s the car?

  308. Except for the Seder.

    That’s why they make turkey bacon.

  325. Thanks Wiser, I’ll get it to a mechanic tomorrow.

    Nighty night!

    It’s the car’s time, it’s running out of time. It needs… more time.

  327. I’ve never had matzoh ball soup. My family is related to Hitler on my mom’s side, though we ironically have a kind of Jewish-sounding name.

    Life’s a funny little thing, huh?

  328. Matzoh ball soup is really just chicken soup with big lumps of matzoh meal in it that soak up the broth and become all soft and chicken-y themselves.

    It’s hard to describe it in a way that sounds appetizing, but it is pretty good (coming from someone who just eats the matzoh balls since she doesn’t like soup).

  329. I’m so sad. I tried to pass this gem along to my boyfriend and his only response is ‘What’s a Seder?’

    Hey, Kiddo. I’m now finally off to bed. And I didn’t nap today like you did.

    As far as Jewish food is concerned, I found that I do enjoy Matzoh and horseradish with a JD chaser. They go together surprisingly well.

  359. Hey, I was such a dope I thought that ELO song went “Medieval woman… Medieval woman…”

    It’s lucky I stayed away from D&D.

    I think celebrations are in order.

  370. Guys, how come your generation had to fuck up politics so bad just in time to make me have to deal with it? :(

    This clusterfuck has been 80 years in the making. Start with FDR and go forward.

    In addition, right now you are seeing the long slog taken by the 60’s liberals (not my generation) as they slowly gained power of all our major institutions. When they were young, they made their mess in the streets. Now, they’re crapping up Universities, local, state, federal governments and everywhere else.

  371. Eh, whats another 10-15.

    PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL!

  372. I DIDN’T GET MILK.

    crap.

    We’re all going to die.

  373. FTR, snow doesn’t seriously start here until tonight.

    I’ve got all frakking day to buy some milk. That life saving nectar.

  374. Dammit Beavis.

  375. Huge storm here Count and the kids got out of the house in time but no way they are staying dry

  376. Start with FDR and go forward.

    I’d go back further, but mostly just because I try not to miss an opportunity to pin something on the fascist cocksucker Wilson.

  377. Morning everybody. I’m off to class, but I’d like to give the weather a nice big middle finger before I go.

    See ya’ll later.

  378. We are supposed to go below freezing today

  379. High temp in Dallas tomorrow is 22?

    The reptiles won’t be happy.

  380. Dallas is usually colder than us but not by much. I seriously dont know how I am supposed to drive in this.

  381. I like matzo ball soup, but I use 2 cups less water than the recipe calls for.

  382. OMG, they’re geniuses.

    What would we do without federal regulators?

    If only we could find a place to cut the size of government ….

  383. Head assplodes.

    “If companies don’t change their practices and reformulate their products, people don’t have a chance of following the dietary guidelines,” Ms. Wootan said.

    WTF do people eat? “Products”?

  384. From Car In’s link:

    While the recommendations may seem obvious, it is nonetheless considered major progress for federal regulators, who have long skirted the issue, wary of the powerful food lobby.

    Good for them, overcoming their fears of Big Food to suggest that perhaps the reason people have fat asses is that they eat shitty food, and too much of it. If they keep this up, they’ll be jumping off the high dive at the pool by August! I think our brave little guy deserves ice cream!

  385. WTF do people eat? “Products”?

    Of course. Get in line behind a food-stamper. “Name brand” everything. “Nothing but the best for my little children of unknown paternity.” These are the same people who won’t eat a Venison and Wild Mushroom soup.

  386. I DIDN’T GET MILK.
    ————-
    Can you milk the chickens?

  387. Ha ha haa … Herr.

    Yea, I guess I should be congratulating their baby steps.

    It’s just pathetic- here we have this TOTALLY FUCKING USELESS agency working through it’s daddy issues on a national scale. Wasting our money on stupid and useless recommendations.

  388. From IMAO
    “So Obama will answer the phone at 3am, he just won’t necessarily say or do anything afterwards.”

  389. Of course. Get in line behind a food-stamper. “Name brand” everything. “Nothing but the best for my little children of unknown paternity.” These are the same people who won’t eat a Venison and Wild Mushroom soup.

    I mean, honestly. Do they feed their kids frozen foods? Mac and cheese for dinner?

    Every night. A piece of protein and some veggies. Sometimes a starch, sometimes not. NEVER ever do I EVER give them something prepackaged (although pizza isn’t much better – but that only happens once every couple of weeks).

    And, then I don’t eat it. Just my kids.

    Either the government agency is stupid or a large portion of American people are.

  390. Can you milk the chickens?

    Do they have nipples?

  391. Google says no. They are not mammals. I guess you’re going to have to milk the dogs (if female) or suck it up and go out in the cold.

  392. We’re not as good about it as you, Carin. We have a slab of meat, a veggie or salad, a starch (usually taters or rice, rarely prepackaged mac and cheese, etc.), and bread at most dinners. BUT we have a huge exception, as the rare Orthodox family that actually keeps the weekly fasts of no meat, dairy, fish, oil, or booze on Wednesdays and Fridays. If you can resist the temptation to eat nothing but pasta on those days, your body gets a rest from too many calories on the other days. I probably don’t take in more than 1500 calories on Weds and Fri.

  393. Cool.

    Federal Judge Roger Vinson opens his decision declaring ObamaCare unconstitutional with that citation from Federalist No. 51, written by James Madison in 1788

    COOL.

  394. He also used Obama’s own word’s against him:

    “I note that in 2008, then-Senator Obama supported a health care reform proposal that did not include an individual mandate because he was at that time strongly opposed to the idea, stating that, ‘If a mandate was the solution, we can try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody to buy a house.’”

    Heh.

  395. Oh, they’ll eat some prepackaged foods. They LOVE mac and cheese, and they’ll have it for lunch. My 16 y/o will eat it when he gets home from school (I’m thinking I’m just going to have to stop buying it).

    But, it’s not as if I’m under any illusion that this is “good” food. If they had a weight problem, it would be gone.

    But for dinner, it’s home cooked 100%. They don’t always like it, but that’s another issue.

  396. Either the government agency is stupid or a large portion of American people are.

    Wow, why didn’t I think of that? I must be one of the stupid ones.

  397. It was an either /or Jay.

    I think you’ve reached the wrong conclusion.

    I blame Mare.

  398. Inch of ice in St Louis.

    We might not be hearing from Rosetta for a couple of days.

  399. I haven’t really cut much out of what I eat, and I’ve dropped weight just cutting portions. Also, eating 3 times a day has helped make me not hungry all the time, although it sucked the first couple of weeks. Loading up on veggies cuts the meat portions, and snacking on celery is a lot better than potato chips. Haven’t had any of those this year!

  400. The Administration contends that not purchasing insurance—inactivity—is really activity, because everyone will eventually need medical care and their costs will be transferred to the insured. But Judge Vinson dissects that as a “radical departure” from the Constitution and U.S. case law. It is “not hyperbolizing to suggest that Congress could do almost anything it wanted,” he writes. “Surely this is not what the Founding Fathers could have intended.”

    WOOT.

  401. I forgot my earings I might as well be naked

  402. Inch of ice in St Louis.

    Yeah, we’re supposed to see that later day. Eastern Iowa could get 2 feet of global warming. We should be 4-5 inches, but that’s what they said we’d get last night, too. Wind is supposed to get interesting later today, though. Blizzard warning til noon tomorrow, not just the regular winter weather advisory.

  403. Excellent.

    My BIL only eats once a day, and I’ve told him a MILLION times … @@.

    What meal? Dinner. And it’s LATE and it’s HUGE.

    Plus dessert.

  404. I forgot my earings I might as well be naked

    You got some paperclips handy?

  405. Our Blizzard warning starts tonight at 7pm.

    Light snow during the day. Blizzard conditions tonight.

  406. My 16 y/o will eat it when he gets home from school

    All depends on the kid. When I was that age, all I ate was carbs. Raw freakin’ energy for the furnace. My oldest is well proportioned and eats like a hog. Anything she can get her hands on. My other girl is verging on pudgy, so we have to watch her carefully. The Boy? We hold him down and put a feeding tube in him. (In between growth spurts, and he eats very little. That’ll change about, oh, next week or something).

  407. Also, when preparing dinner, remember that pepper and spices are better than salt for you. You still need a little, but not the levels that come in prepared foods.

    Honestly, I don’t think I could add that much salt to stuff.

  408. You still need a little, but not the levels that come in prepared foods.

    That’s why avoid them. I can feel my blood pressure go up if I eat fast food.

    Yes.

    Jay’ms, sounds like you missed a hell of a gig when the NYT didn’t call you for a money quote. You don’t work for the USDA do ya?

  413. We still have power – so far. Pretty slick out there. Tonight is going to get really interesting.

  414. We had roast chicken for dinner last night. HotBride always makes a curry from the leftovers the next day, so w00t! Having a wife of British descent has loads of advantages.

  418. Laura Ingraham’s playing an interview W did on immigration sometime recently. Grrrrr…

  419. You don’t work for the USDA do ya?

    The USDA would have had me sign a non disclosure agreement before letting out a state secret like that, so no, I do not. One of my friends currently does work for them, at the lab here in Iowa.

    Remember Mad Cow Disease? Yeah, that’s where those things ended up.

  420. Remember Mad Cow Disease?

    Know why it was called that? Because the name “PMS” was already taken.

    *Ducks and covers*

  421. Andy – One of the most frustrating things in my life is trying to understand the Republicans’ stance on illegal AND legal immigration. The whole Specter/Kennedy created soup sandwich is crazy. Yet, there appears no will to fix the system.

  422. The roads are pretty bad and getting worse.

    But it wouldn’t be such a shitty ride if I could just sip my coffee and take my time and relax.

    No, no no nooo.

    I’m getting on Rt. 9 this morning, right? And as Fortune would have it, there’s a team of three huge state plows coming up the road, three-abreast, as I’m getting off the ramp.

    So rather than get in front of them, I hang back a little and slip into traffic behind. So now I’m maybe three or four cars back from the plows.

    I hate speeding up and slowing down in these conditions, so I let a good gap form between me and the car in front of me and then assume a constant speed.

    In my rearview mirror, I see people jockeying for position, lane-to-lane, then race up next to me and pass me and fill in in front of me.

    Now, there is NO FUCKING WAY they can’t see these three huge orange MOTHERFUCKING DUMP TRUCKS WITH BLINKING LIGHTS THAT ARE HOLDING BACK ALL TRAFFIC TO THE SAME CONSTANT SPEED I MEAN MOTHERFUCKER, ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??? WHERE THE *FUCK* DO YOU THINK YOU’RE GOING?!!???

  423. Just went out to warm up the car to take Frau to the Dr. One step. Flat. On. My. Ass. You can skate on our gravel driveway.

  424. They still had “Yes We Can!” bumper stickers, didn’t they, Laura?

  425. Laura – Don’t you realize that you are just a background extra in the movie about their life??

    Assholes abound, the Dude abides.

  426. Drinking a third coffee seems to really bring out the assholes on the road.

    Weird.

  427. Laura – I’m glad you made it safely. Be careful out there.

  428. Nothing satisfies me more than to watch someone in a Four Runner pass me on the road like a jerk, then spin out in front of me and slide into the ditch.

    Oh, how I laughed.

    I was wishing that in a similar situation to Lauraw’s this morning, but I was denied the comedic opportunity. The guy in the 4WD Dakota made it. Maybe I should have pulled out in front of him, the rear of my car is still beat up from earlier last month.

  429. Being the FIRST slow motherfucker behind the BIG SLOW MOVING ORANGE DUMPTRUCK/SNOWPLOW is much better than being…..ya know…. the third or fourth motherfucker in line. MUCH BETTER!!!!!

  430. *considers suggesting to Scott that he replace Lauraw’s regular coffee”with Folger’s decaffinated crystals.

    I like it when she rages against the machine retards.

  432. How are you gonna get Frau safely to the car, Herr?

  433. Made it to work but now I have to run errands for the clinic in this crap. *runs to hug layra spills my coffee all over her* ooops sorry

  434. How are you gonna get Frau safely to the car, Herr?

    I suggest a pair of track spikes.

  435. Nothing satisfies me more than to watch someone in a Four Runner pass me on the road like a jerk, then spin out in front of me and slide into the ditch.

    That’s a lie. Everybody knows that 4-wheel drive not only nullifies the Laws of Physics, but makes you smarter and sexier, too.

  436. How are you gonna get Frau safely to the car, Herr?

    Salt, time, and patience.

  437. Bloody Mary’s are good

  438. I gotta run to the store and get milk. My kids are making me.

    16 degrees out, which is practically balmy. I still can’t get motivated.

  439. My complexion is totally clear now, and women notice me! Thanks, 4 wheel-drive!

    Herr, that sounds like something that should be an ad on Red Eye. I can hear it over the voices in my head and the tinnitus.

    Post it over at the activity pit, maybe it’ll be on!

  441. Anybody got a new poat scheduled? This one is slower than LauraW behind a snow plow!

  442. Laura, burn them.

  443. Laura, welcome back.

    Missed you.

  444. I’m working on a post as Future President beasn’s address to the hostage nation about Egypt, but I don’t want to put it up until I check with her. I’ll save it in the draft folder and we can put it up later.

  445. Don’t get me started on food stampers.

  448. Missed you guys too.

    *smoooches*

  449. Greetings from the frozen wasteland of North Texas. Rebecca wormed her way into our bed at 4:00 in the morning, having been scared awake by the rolling thunder and lightning. Front moved in around midnight, bringing sleet and snow with it. The entire Metroplex is practically shut down, with at least an inch of ice on all major freeways.

    Schools and businesses are closed down, so Mr. TiFW and DD# 3 & 4 are all home today – they’ll probably be home for the next couple of days, as the temps aren’t going to get above freezing until Friday. And this 100+-year-old house is drafty as all get-out, so the temps inside aren’t exactly toasty!

    Current temperature is 19 degrees, with winds out of the north running about 40 mph. The Steelers and Green Bay Packers start practice at Cowboys Stadium today; as one radio announcer said, today’s weather is what those guys call “Tuesday”……

  450. Also, beasn, please drop these books along with your other documents:

    Federalist Papers in Modern Language

    I’ve been reading it, since I’ve not read the Federalist Papers. Interesting stuff. I also got the original Federalist Papers, and the Anti Federalist Papers. That should be fun when I’m done.

  451. NEW POAT UP!!! Please leave this moldy, old poat immediately!
