If you don’t like this song, you’re worse than Hitler.

Post Update

Sean, the video below is because I love you. Scratch that, this video is for the hostages because I love them so much.

It rubs the lotion on the skin……………….

  1. new poat

  2. Until this moment, at 51 years of age, I did not know I was worse than Hitler.

    Wow. I’m pretty bad.

  3. Good night stars, good night moon. Good night new poat, good night poon.

  4. Dave, Dave, Dave, what can I say?

    *shakes head sadly

  5. *smears peanut butter on my head

  6. Worst. Mashup. EVAR.

  7. Gaw, I really hope that was chunky. Otherwise you and I need to have a hygiene chat.

  8. *buttons up brownshirt*

  9. hahaha, I’m telling Steve in HB you hate him.

  10. Well, I do like peanuts.

    *fixes my dreads

  11. I have a feeling that you’re gonna have to tell Steve in HB that A LOT of people hate him. Or at least that they think he’s got shit taste in music.

  12. nah, nonsense. I hate to cause drama

    So sean, did you hear what dave in texas said about you when I met him?

  13. ooo.. this is a good story

  14. crap, I have to think something up now, don’t I?

  15. Um, gosh. I’m too tired to talk about it right now. It’s too upsetting. I’m gonna go to bed now and when I wake up all refreshed and shiny, I’ll ya all about it.

    night now.

  16. So sean, did you hear what dave in texas said about you when I met him?

    You actually met somebody? Wow.

  17. The budget cuts don’t amount to a fart in a windstorm, but it is a step in the right direction. What I hate about it though, is Barack effing Obama and his big dopey grin are going to be all over my teevee taking credit for this historicallistic uber deal. GAAAH. Ya think the lamestream might spin it that way as well? Nah, that’s just crazy talk.

  18. So there is NO way I could have sat through that movie a year ago…

  19. Me plus exposed bones not friends

  20. Exposed bones aren’t really anybody’s friends, soohoo, but I know what you mean.

  21. I believe that being told by commentators on this blog that I have shit musical taste is a contrarian indicator. I’ll wear it like a merit badge.

    If this song doesn’t make you smile then your heart is two sizes too small.

  22. I know I’m being a bit dramatic about it all…I’m very afraid ofexposing it all

  23. I believe that being told by commentators on this blog that I have shit musical taste is a contrarian indicator.

    I support Steve! Even though I have no idea what he just said.

    sohos + bones = no bueno

    sean, I posted a new video for you in the post. I hope you like it.

  24. So what was pjm searching for when she found that second video. I shudder and my penis retracts inside my body.

  25. Wow. Just wow. I try to bring diversity to this blog and this is how I get treated?

  26. My heart is apparently three sizes too small.

    Also, I’d say “up yours, peej,” but I can’t afford the child support payments.

  27. tough crowd tonight

  28. Bedtime for me. Have to bet MLB all day tomorrow – sick of it already and season just started. Goodnight all.

  29. nighty night steve! thanks for the song

  30. sean, I posted a new video for you in the post. I hope you like it.

    You and Mrpeej break out the video camera tonight?

  31. nytol

  32. Man, I don’t think I should have licked that particular toad…

  33. COLORS

    (I am eating them.)

  34. I am swimming with the dolphins! They are SO wise.

    (They tell me terrible things about the future. The Cleansing Waters will only spare…wait, I’ve said too much.)

  35. *pushes sean over*

    It’s been storming for the past two hours and then I finally look at the clock and the clocks are blinking. FUUUUUUUuuuuuuuu….

    Go check the battery powered clock and it’s time to get up. And the storms, like that, go away.

    Meh.

  36. Coming down HARD. Had a theory about mankind’s relationship to The Divine via music a minute ago, but I lost it.

  37. WHY IS EVERYTHING BROWN? WHY DOES EVERYTHING TASTE BROWN?

  38. I burned many of my papers. I watched the flame. Everything tastes better now. Diet Dr. Pepper tastes even MORE like regular Dr. Pepper.

    I shall rest and attempt grow a fine moustache.

  39. Wow!

  40. I never lick the right toads.

  41. Sean’s the Official Meth Supplier™ of the StL meet. Get cookin’, Cassidy!

  42. Bring me the opposite of Meth. I want something that will keep me asleep, rather than awake.

  43. Hi Andy, Leon and MJ.

  44. I never finished my 33 uses for mouthwash. I blame the budget negotiation process.

  45. Toast!
    It is what is for breakfast.

    Too lazy to french it.

  46. >> If this song doesn’t make you smile then your heart is two sizes too small.

    I don’t know that I’ve ever given steve_in_hb shit about his musical tastes, but regardless, it’s good to know my heart is the right size.

  47. Mornin’ vmax and everyone.

    Somebody bring MJ a .357 Mag.

  48. Hi VMax, how goes life in FL? I haven’t seen the sun in about 2 weeks now.

  49. I have turned the AC off once in the past 2 weeks Leon. Hot and humid here.

  50. I just clicked on PJM”s second video up top.

    *Lays in wait for pjm, shovel in hand.*

  51. Lies in wait?

    Damn complicated English language with all its rules and shit.

  52. Doing a round up on the wailing and gnashing of teeth on both sides regarding the CR.

    The really great thing about a deal is both sides get to really hate the fuck outta their respective leaders.

  53. Dave, you may be using the term “leaders” in somewhat of an overstated way.

  54. The really great thing about a deal is both sides get to really hate the fuck outta their respective leaders.

    There was a line about that on a Law and Order episode long ago – one of the judges said that the way she knew that her decision was right was that both lawyers were unhappy.

    Don’t know why that stuck with me…..

  55. political leadership, if I haz to spell it out. The people who actually vote on budgets and shit.

  56. Dave, Andy McCarthy has a good negative one at The Corner.

  57. Bah, he’s just piss-whining like half the crowd at AoS last night.

    I’m often guilty of telling people at work who press me for a decision before I can agree to it “if you have to have an answer right now, it’s ‘no’. If on the other hand you can wait a few days, it might be ‘yes'”.

    Demanding it all, or demanding “seriousness” right now is just fucking stupid. We can’t get it. We got a Dem Senate and a Dem veto pen. We fight this one and fight the next one (debt ceiling) and fight the next one (2012) and fight the next one and on and on and on. This isn’t ‘one and out.’

    Yeah Mr. McCarthy, I GET IT. I’ve seen the charts. Geoff made em for me. Entitlements and debt are the problem. So when was the last time we lowered spending 1% in a year over year budget? 1948?

  58. Yeah, I get that we can only cut so much right now. We got more than I was expecting, and — importantly — less than the majority of voters wanted. I’m okay with that, it means 2012 might be a good year.

  59. Um, I just meant it would be a good one for your roundup.

  60. hahahaha.

    I gotta stop reading this stuff. It’s affecting my outlook on life.

  61. Good Morning.

  62. Does anyone here know how to break into an antique timeclock? The case has a cheesy clock lock on it that has me totally defeated.

  63. C4 and primercord will work

  64. Good morning!I don’t know how to do that Layra

  65. Can’t you just wait out the clock, Laura?

  66. Lauraw, I’ve had luck with a small Allen wrench.

    http://www.ehow.com/how_5888356_unlock-antique-skeleton-key.html

  67. Also, moving day at the Masters.

    It was a pain in the ass dealing with the crowds at Masters time – you couldn’t go out to eat, you couldn’t go anywhere near Augusta National. But damn, I miss seeing the gardens this time of year.

  68. If it’s an old skeleton key type lock, what RFH suggests is a good approach

  69. Interesting problem LW. We have an old clock made in the 1870s (iirc) and it has a locked glass door with no key, but it is in the unlocked position. I would probably take it to an antique shop or two and see if they have a key that would fit (if they can’t sell it, just trace the shape to find one elsewhere or even make one) or maybe try a clock repair shop. Up thar in Ye Olde New England I would think antique shops would abound.

  70. Or is it a beeg clock?

  71. Rainy day.

    Good Morning.

  72. sure wish it was rainin here.

    HOWDY

  73. doc, I happen to be in Antique Clockville, USA.

    I called ‘my guy’ and left a message for him this morning.

  74. the aperture is really too thin to admit even the smallest allen wrench I have here

  75. How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEu7fcjgWK0

  76. OK, I have to stop. Almost didn’t get the paperclip out that time.

  77. We have an antique Bim-Bam Banjo clock.

    http://xrl.in/8r6t

    Whenever we moved, the key was in a pocket.

  78. I’ve done a couple of those.

  79. For Thaddeus McCotter: http://xrl.in/8r6v

  80. *flips clock around and checks out screws holding back panel to case*

    Heh he he heh

  81. *flips clock around and checks out screws holding back panel to case*

    That’s like Step #1 for the Engineering crowd:
    1) Can it be taken apart?
    2) Hot Damn! Let’s have some fun!!!!!!!!

    How conversations generally start around the TiFW household and gatherings of coworkers:
    “(Insert name of item in question) wasn’t working right, so I opened ‘er up to see what was going on…..”

    Happily, with engineering types, these stories usually end up with the offending item working by the end of the story –

  82. And Christmas time around the TiFW household usually involves one or more races to get to the “Some Assembly Required” items first…..

  83. wakey wakey

  84. you funny

  85. *tickles Carin*

    *runs like Hell*

    *stops, lights a cigarette*

    *resumes running, but more slowly, so as not to lose the tip of my fresh fag*

  86. Funny story involving DD#1:
    Her first Christmas after starting college, I had run across a kit to “make” an 8-cylinder engine. Since she was in Mechanical Engineering and had never worked on cars before, I thought it might be fun for her to work on with Mr. TiFW. She really lit up when she opened it up.

    We related this story to our engineering/car enthusiast buddies at pizza the next week:

    DD#1 and Mr. TiFW started working on it, having a lot of fun in the process. DD#1 learned a lot about how engines work as well. They get it all put together, then crank it up.

    Nothing happens.

    Or as all of our friends said – in unison, I might add – “Just like in real life!”
    (And yes, she made a few minor tweaks, learning even more along the way, and it worked just fine…..)

  87. Learning is for homos.

  88. Wrong daughter 😉

  89. So, since this is all about me. . . I’m an idiot.

  90. Haaa ha ha haa, TiFW, I totally forgot about that.

  91. Conservatives and the budget deal. . .

    http://xrl.in/8r71

  92. OK, it’s past noon.

    Who wants a beer?

  93. OK, it’s past noon.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    As if. . .

  94. Well, the rest of us aren’t Living The Dream quite yet, MCPO! Heh.

    That’s what my Dad calls retirement.

  95. >> So, since this is all about me. . . I’m an idiot.

    You too?

    ATTENTION. I HAVE AN URGENT AND IMPORTANT NEWS BULLETIN. DAVE IN TEXAS IS SITTING BY THE POOL WITH MAYBE A BEER IN HIS HAND BEFORE NOON, YOU DON’T KNOW, AND HE’S IN A REALLY GOOD MOOD CAUSE IT BEATS THE EVER LIVIN FUCK OUTTA SPENDIN 23 HOURS ON PLANES

  96. DinT – That’s almost as bad as 11 hours on I-95 in torrential rains with assholes from NY, Quebec and Massachusetts!

  97. I was on I-95 this very week.

    But no assholes or torrential rains.

  98. Look at this picture, is our idiot President being duped or what?

    http://tinyurl.com/3qkp2ly

  99. Yes, I know the picture has nothing to do with the headline. Just look at the picture.

  100. did you comment too quickly?

  101. That’s almost as bad as 11 hours on I-95 in torrential rains with assholes from NY, Quebec and Massachusetts!

    That’s no way to talk about your golfing buddies, MCPO. 😉

  102. I don’t know, Doc. Any bunch of guys that willingly spend hours at a time with MCPO are almost by definition, assholes.

  103. I’ve been out of bandwidth. It comes back in 34. min. I’ve been reading and cleaning. Almost done with that stupid book.

    Also, we got the weed killer on the lawn. So that’s done. I should go plant these raspberries. too.

    Went shopping for an iPhone. Anyone have any advice? How much data do people use?

    It may relieve some of the bandwidth issues here. At least when I run out, I can resort to that.

  104. **tackles Car in**

    **gives her just a little “bandwidth”**

  105. **tap, tap**

    Hello? Is this thing on?

    I tried plugging it in, honest!

  106. doc, I happen to be in Antique Clockville, USA.

    As I figgered. Did you take the back off? You gots me curious. I’ve never seen such a tiny key slot as you are describing. Can you post a pic of the clock and/or the lock mechanism if you do open it up? The one we have is a mantle clock that you wind up, doesn’t keep time anymore though. So I don’t wind it. Still looks pretty on the mantle.

  107. Dunno about everyone else, Xbrad, but I’m getting ready for the hard work of drinking beer, napping on the couch, and watching the Masters.

  108. Doc, shouldn’t you have your hand up a cow’s poon right now?

  109. Actually, unless it’s a calving, usually it’s up the arse. My first difficult calving in neg 10 degree weather in a “barn” with 3 walls went a long way towards helping me decide puppies and kitties were the way to go. Thanks for asking, though. Shouldn’t you be surfing or paying taxes or something like that in Calleeforn eye A?

  110. Ca rin, I’m a pretty heavy iPhone user and I never get close to 2gb per month

  111. Haven’t resorted to that yet, doc. Local old codger/ clock ninja will be swinging by the shop on Monday or Tuesday to see if he has a key that fits.

  112. Except for when some asshole streams live video on it …

  113. Off to the flower store. BBL

    Wasn’t it snowing this time last week?

  114. well, yeah.

    shit, I thought my damn phone was gonna burst into flames.. that ustream heats up all the chips

  115. I’m replacing my 5 y/o iPod nano with an iPod Touch. Any suggestions on memory?

  116. >> Any suggestions on memory?

    Yes. Write down what it was you were gonna do before you leave the house.

  117. So incredibly hawt!

    http://xrl.in/8r89

  118. DinT – HA! What were we talking about?

  119. MCPO, I keep wanting to use her for Load HEAT, but can never find more than a couple good pics.

    I think one day, I’ll just do a “Women of Bones” version with her and Michaela Conlin and whatshername.

  120. http://tinyurl.com/3lh3d72

  121. 64 mb. That’s what mine has 😉

  122. but the 200 mb is way to low, I’m thinking.

    right?

  123. Went to Subway to get lunch a while ago and there was a young Mexican woman, late teens or early twenties, in line behind me. She was about 4’10” maybe and no more than 95 lbs. So I turn to make converstion with her and evaluate her nibblets and I notice that she’s got a lanyard around her neck with some keys attached. Woven in to the lanyard are the words, “Shut The Fuck Up.”. So I skipped the conversation part and just did a quick nibblet eval. Man, are there ever some classy folks in the oil patch. Made me think of you guys.

  124. Nibblets?

  125. Hoots, Laura. Funbags. Chesticles.

  126. If it had said “Shut Your Whore Mouth” what would you have done?

  127. Married her?

  128. Haaa ha ha haa, TiFW, I totally forgot about that.
    Hey, low-hanging fruit and all that – I couldn’t resist that one…..

    Yes, I know the picture has nothing to do with the headline. Just look at the picture.
    Mare, I’ve always thought that picture summed up the opinion of most of the world’s leaders. They’ve got Barry’s number (he’s an Omega male), and they’re not impressed. He’s not even worthy of their respect. My guess is he doesn’t even have a clue what that picture represents…..

    Off to the flower store. BBL
    In trouble with Mrs. Andy again?

  129. Every time I think I have removed all the crocus bulbs from my front former-garden beds, more of them pop up the next Spring.

    Little suckers have a tight grip on life.

    Man, are there ever some classy folks in the oil patch.

    Like dirty old men that turn around in line to scope out teen titty?

    *dashes off in serpentine fashion, head low*

  130. You think crocus are resilient? Fucking rhubarb survives a nuke.

  131. **sprays Weed-B-Gone on poat**

  132. *flashes poat my blarney stone*

    doc says it’ll be gone in 2-3 weeks, tops.

  133. Your probably gonna need a little lube to get that thing inside, honey….

    http://tinyurl.com/4y3sdhw

  134. the fuck is a crocus and can I kill it in a week or less?

  135. Krokus was a pretty decent band back in the 70’s iirc.

  136. I’ve heard that about horseradish too, xbradtc. Very invasive.

    I’m going to get some and give it it’s own bed away from the veggie garden.

    Time to direct-seed cole crops, beets, lettuce, onions…might do leeks this year.

  137. Like dirty old men that turn around in line to scope out teen titty?

    Yep.

    I’d guess that kinda shit happens in sophisticated burgs as well though.

  138. I thought about doing my lettuce today may be too early yet for us.

    I’m sure the spinach would be fine. that stuff is still green and succulent from last year.

  139. Ha, Carin said “succulent.”

  140. I know. She was looking right into my eyes and over-pronounced it, too.

    *takes a shower*

  141. HAHAHAHAHA

  142. I’m sure the spinach would be fine.

    Really? Huh. That explains why spinach bolts here in 2 1/2 minutes. I’m planting it too late.

  143. Sugarsnap peas just started breaking out of the soil today.

    EXCITING!!!

  144. O RLY?

  145. *stares directly into Mare’s eyes and seductively over-pronounces the word ‘fecal,’ with tongue out on final ‘L’ *

  146. *faints*

  147. *stares directly into Mare’s eyes and seductively over-pronounces the word ‘fecal,’ with tongue out on final ‘L’ *

    HAHAHAHAHA

    I had hoped to reach a mental maturity of around 8th grade. Alas, that is not meant to be. I was shooting way too high.

  148. Has this been linked here before? If so, who cares:

    http://www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles

  149. EAGLETS!

  150. Gah, mare, that’s on the news all the time up here. Of course, in Iowa, we are easily entertained, or suffer from a lack of options. Take your pick.

  151. Important announcement: the first annuals of the season have been planted, and the Mrs. is happy.

  152. Mare – Why do you love me so? Is it my beautiful brown eyes, my smile? No, it’s the fact that I tell liberals to kiss my ass. *sigh*

  153. Heh, Andy, are you watching her plant annuals from the window, with a drink in your hand.

    Go out and say, “good job, honey!” People need encouragement.

  154. I helped. And not in the “Michael offering vacuuming tips to Cathy” way, either.

  155. Hey Mare, close your eyes and hold out your hand.

    http://tinyurl.com/4226rn2

  156. Awwww, look at the babies.

  157. MCPO, d. all of the above

  158. Hey, Roamy! How you feeling today?

  159. I overdid it yesterday, but I’m doing much better today. Thank you for asking.

  160. Doc Zero: http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=42816

  161. R- Slow and steady wins the race.

  162. It’s frustratingly slow, but I’ve got to have some improvement if Mr. RFH is going to let me drive to StL by myself. It’s pretty good motivation.

    The big deal at work other than the shutdown is that I still won’t have my program critical hardware handlers license this year. Flunked the physical on the EKG alone. That throws something of a monkey wrench into transporting flight hardware, but no one is telling me I can’t pick up my own experiment. Yet.

  163. I see exposed nipples in that second video.

    What the fuck is that shit.

    What kinda blog in this? Nipple blog all the time?

    The H2: come for the sausage, stay for the nipples.

  164. It’s frustratingly slow, but I’ve got to have some improvement if Mr. RFH is going to let me drive to StL by myself. It’s pretty good motivation.

    Why don’t you hitch a ride with the Cuffys?

    *enjoys inserting self into other people’s business, putting them in uncomfortable positions*

  165. Wow! I can’t believe Erica Campbell only beat Lindsey Strutt by 4 votes on the Official BBF Model pole.

    Your mom was disqualified because she has syphilis.

  166. Your mom was disqualified because she has syphilis. a penis

    Fixt.

  167. This poat stinks

  168. Your mom has syphilis and a penis?

    I probably wouldn’t tell people that.

  169. This poat stinks

    That could be Floyd.

    He went for a ride in the car today and farted and killed everyone in the St. Louis metro area.

  170. Floyd has also developed moobs.

  171. Did you have your surprise for the Mrs today? I watched 127 hours last night

  172. Ok, I’ll have an iPhone on Friday. They’re “out” of ’em now.

    But, I finally got my two oldest boys cell phones.

    They’re both my bitches now. I OWN them.

    They’ll do anything I ask.

    *considers a foot rub.

  173. Heh, just watching Red Eye, and I got MCPO’s reference above. Well Done!

  174. Car in – wow, really? I mean, I like my new phone, but not THAT much…

  175. It’s frustratingly slow, but I’ve got to have some improvement if Mr. RFH is going to let me drive to StL by myself. It’s pretty good motivation.

    *crosses fingers.

    Remembers I didn’t make that phone call yet … hides from Lauraw.

    Yes, Spinach is cold weather. the chickens ate the stuff that had been out there all winter. It looked normal, but that shit had just been under the snow all these months.

  176. they’re 15 and 16 and apparently the last kids in the United States w/o phones.

    We surprised them.

  177. I got an unlimited data plan.

    Yea. I’ll never have to worry about no bandwidth.

  178. Did you have your surprise for the Mrs today?

    Not yet. We’re getting ready to go out to dinner and then see John Pizzarelli:

    http://tinyurl.com/3ckkm2j

    Everyone needs to see him if they have a chance. He is awesome.

    I watched 127 hours last night.

    Excellent! We should do that He Said / She Said review thing. Whaddya say?

  179. Vern Lundquist is like a developmentally challenged sleeping pill.

  180. Not a bad thing for them not to have phones. I know a lot of my friends who are GLUED to the things.
    There just seems to be something inherently wrong about seeing a 7-year-old with a cell phone too.

  181. Oooh FUN! I know y’all will have a blast. Let’s for sure do the review

  182. Oh, yea. We held out for a long time. And, when I see ’em texting during dinner, they’re losing it.

    But with sports … they don’t even have public phones anywhere at school for them to call.

    Last fall, I would drive to the school, and just hope I was close. Sometimes I sat there for 45 min.

    And football practice. UGH. That shit never ends on time.

  183. Oooh FUN! I know y’all will have a blast. Let’s for sure do the review

    LET’S DO IT!! If you start, tell me and I’ll do the same.

    This could be a fun bit.

  184. … the only time my parents ‘withheld’ a phone from me was when I put two through the wash in the space of a month. And even then they just downgraded me to a disposable doohickey until I could learn to take care of it. But really, this is the first time I’ve had a current-gen phone since like sophomore year of high-school.

  185. Apparently the Progressives aren’t very happy with their Messiah – they’re starting to take his name in vain:
    If the president obamas this (yes, I used it as a verb), it will be catastrophic.

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/04/09/965207/-Progressives-Must-Stand-up-to-the-President

    Sorry about where I found the link; it was just too, too sweet not to click over and enjoy their wailing and gnashing of teeth….

    Also made me feel better about the deal that we got –

  186. Okay. I’m outta here. We have a Hotspur-like dinner reservation at 5:45pm.

    EARLY BIRD!!!

  187. I am like unto a God.

    And the phone is the Holy Grail.

    I guess the equivalent growing up was a phone in your room…ooooo…. It was forbidden.

    Kids these days, etc. etc.

  188. They don’t have anything fancy. $50 with a contract (plus company rebate) , but it’s the kind they said they wanted. they are over the moon.

    Only “I” got an iPhone. And a data plan.

  189. I guess the equivalent growing up was a phone in your room…ooooo…. It was forbidden.

    Yea, but for my kids – everyone had a phone in their room except them.

    Honestly. 9 y/o have cell phones. I draw the limit . Matt is 15. That is the lower limit for us.

    Ian is 16 and about to get his driver’s license, and I wouldn’t really feel comfortable unless I had 100% access. Because I’m a nervous nelly.

  190. Mine pretty nice – touchscreen, internet access (but no data plan) etc. Everyone in the family got the same thing.

  191. Rosie I will email you tomorrow. Have fun give Mrs. Rosetta a hug from me

  192. I wanna see 127 hours, ONLY because people say it’s so good.

  193. Heh, I didn’t get my license till I was 19.

  194. Ian is 16 and about to get his driver’s license, and I wouldn’t really feel comfortable unless I had 100% access. Because I’m a nervous nelly.

    I can’t even imagine what it must be like to wave goodbye as your kid pulls out of the driveway. Yikes.

    Revvy, why didn’t you get your license till 19?

  195. This is REALLY good – it lays out in great detail exactly what a coup Speaker Boehner got (and what a political moron Bamster is….):

    So what did Boehner have to beat the Dems with and get this much out of them? My guess is it was that moronic false choice between Planned Parenthood and paying our troops. As I said in numerous previous posts, only a political moron/novice would set up this false choice (see here for examples). Presidents should never forget, they will be fired before they can harm our brave men and women on the front lines of 3 wars and numerous police actions. There is no doubt here at all, unless you are a clueless and insecure liberal. The Commander-In-Chief had come out and said he would veto troop pay. He was checkmated right then and there.

    Kay Baily Hutchinson was on last night and dropped a little noticed bomb shell. She had 80 cosponsors on a Senate bill – yes, I said 80 – to fund the DoD for the next 6 months. When combined with the House offer to do the same, Obama was facing a real mess. No stop gap CR, just a bill to pay the troops. The Dems in the Senate were jumping ship. The worst part? The Obama White House was using its CNN puppets to spread the word it was those very Senate Dems that asked to put troop pay in the shutdown mix. I sort of doubt it, given what Senator Hutchinson claimed. This is a clear sign that a bumbling political operation was getting whacked.

    The Congress had decided which path they would take in the ridiculous false choice between Planned Parenthood and our troops. They stood with the troops and against the President. That is the only thing that could explain what we saw yesterday.

    I am sure Reid told the President he was boxed in, and but good.

    Did I mention it’s good?

  196. Lips – I had anxiety problems, driving itself scared the crap out of me, and my driving being judged by an examiner terrified me even more.
    I had to take the test three times too, not because I was necessarily a bad driver, but because the pressure made me keep screwing up.

  197. I confiscated my daughter’s phone last Monday, and all of a sudden her grades are really, really important to her. My son’s phone has the Sword of Damocles hanging over it as well.

    *glances around, gives Geoff the “thumbs up” and reassuring head nod*

    Been there, done that, got the T-Shirt.
    Sooooo glad we’re done with that!
    (Well, technically we still have Rebecca to deal with, but I seriously doubt we’re going to have the kind of stuff we went through with the other 3)

    Now we get to sit back and wait for the girls to have kids…….
    I am gonna laugh my ass off –

  198. I helped. And not in the “Michael offering vacuuming tips to Cathy” way, either.

    Oh screw you. I was giving her really useful advice. Not my fault that she doesn’t want to listen.

    They’re both my bitches now. I OWN them.

    My kids are both in their mid-twenties now, but they both have free cell phones on my “family plan,” which allows them to call their Mom any time without racking up minutes.

    So I can still assert myself and let them know who THE BOSS is, if they don’t call their Mom once in awhile.

    I had to take the test three times too, not because I was necessarily a bad driver, but because the pressure made me keep screwing up.

    Please notify me by email of your planned route before you start your car.

  199. but they both have free cell phones on my “family plan,” which allows them to call their Mom any time without racking up minutes. So I can still assert myself and let them know who THE BOSS is, if they don’t call their Mom once in a while.

    That is an awesome idea.

  200. Oh shush Michael, I’m over it now.

  201. Oh shush Michael, I’m over it now.

    Don’t you dare say “shush” to me, girlie. I will take away your cell phone!

    Oh, wait . . .

  202. *calls downtown to HQ Retired Executive Technical Support, describes the impertinence of Revvy*

    Hey, guess what, I can shut off Revvy’s cell phone.

  203. I almost laughed when, after having taken his car privileges away for a week, my son said, “I hate when you hold the car over my head.”

  204. “I hate when you hold the car over my head.”

    Tell them it’s like the “time-outs” they used to do with their nose to the wall.

  205. it’s like the “time-outs” they used to do with their nose to the wall.

    Mrs. Lorentzson would draw a chalk circle on the blackboard, and we had to hold our noses to that. Hated that. Gary D. sneezed all over that spot.

  206. Sidney Lumet died.

  207. Did anybody hit anybody else with a pipe wrench today?

  208. Did anybody hit anybody else with a pipe wrench today?

    Yes, but it wasn’t very satisfying. . . he never saw it coming.

  209. Wow. They’re just now playing the bottom of the ninth of last night’s Dodgers-Padres game.

  210. So, now not only do the Dodger fans all show up late, they finish the game late too?

    /baseball blog (before we get in trouble with Car in)

  211. Wow the H2 is deader than dead tonight.I am freezing then burning up. I hope I have not come down with something.

    On a lighter note 5 days ago Bear started biting his paws. Now they are so raw and bloody he walks like a gay cat.

    I am about ready to duct tape old tube socks sprayed with bitter apple on all 4 paws.

  212. Poor Bear. What could be causing that?

  213. I honestly do not know Lips. I am taking him to the vet Monday.

  214. Wow the H2 is deader than dead tonight.

    I know. It’s like people have lives and are doing other things on a Saturday night.

  215. I have no life Sean.
    I am there for you.

    Unless someone better comes along.

    PJM? Where Is PJM?

  216. an allergy was the most common suspect.
    Nothing has changed in months Geoff. Thank you for the free Google.
    I am hoping, that he will get over it soon. My Black Lab Bear is my smartest dog. In the last 15 years.

  217. I’m watching Star Wars – Episode V

  218. Keep us posted, Vmax.

  219. Do not underestimate old tube socks sprayed with bitter apple and gorilla taped to all 4 paws.

  220. My wardrobe shrinks again.

  221. an allergy was the most common suspect.
    Nothing has changed in months Geoff. Thank you for the free Google.

    I don’t know if it’s the same in dogs, but us humans can develop allergies quite suddenly. As a wearer or MedicAlert jewelery, I can attest to that.

  222. Vmax,
    Mostly what I found was allergies, and suggested washing face and paws after playing outside. Another option was walking on freshly fertilized grass and getting irritated by the chemicals.

  223. I use shock collars Geoff. In the 11 years I have had my black Lab Bear. I have shocked him 2x. when he was 3 months old.

    Zeke is smart too I have zapped him 4x before he was 1. He is over 2 and He listens to me. I might have to say his name 2x. But I am lazy like that.

  224. No Fertilizers ChrisP
    And he has been on a 2 ingredient food (chicken and rice) for many years. I have been on a beef rib craze for the past 2 weeks. But I do not think that is it. (Beef rib bones) Maybe?

  225. huh? whut?
    Did I kilt It?

  226. I am not going to do a Car in.

    Hi Car in!

    I kilt it I think

  227. Eldest has a black lab puppy who is a goofball too.

    He’s coming for a visit tomorrow.

  228. Maybe – or maybe there’s something in the sauce on the ribs that he’s sensitive to?

    As warm as it is right now, are fleas a possibility, or some other type of bug bite?

    One of our dogs (or was it a cat?) developed a grass allergy – boy, THAT was lots of fun…..

    Sometimes steroids will help a great deal. In the meantime, you can try giving him Benadryl – that’s what our vet always tells us to do!

  229. Maybe he just likes the taste of his feet?

  230. exhibit A

  231. TiF, Benadryl was also recommended for allergies by the ferret doc. Children’s version.

    No alcohol. Spoil sport.

  232. He meant not alcohol for the ferret, Lips.

    You can still have some.

  233. Just an FYI Re: Benadryl, alcohol, and my BP meds (Ampterine/HCTZ. Amlodipine, and Metoprolol.
    When mixed can cause a stoppage of respiration and pulse.
    Guess how I found THAT out!
    Anita was NOT pleased…

  234. Yeah, and I can understand not giving any to little creatures, but I’m sure Bear can handle it.

  235. I’m an enabler.

  236. Chrispy’s a zombie? That would explain a lot…

  237. Well, I died. But I got better!

  238. Only mostly dead?

  239. I took a benadryl today. ZONKED!

  240. Yes!
    Only mostly! But I’m quite alright now!
    Surely you can see that!

  241. Bless you, TiFW!

  242. I figured you guys might like that one!

  243. You post that link, but don’t bring us any beer?

    FAIL.

  244. X,
    She gave us justification!
    NOT a FAIL!

  245. Any time a woman doesn’t bring me a beer, it’s a FAIL.

  246. Apparently, it’s a thread killer, too!

  247. I should stay in….

  248. you should.

    Unless there’s chicks with big bewbs gonna buy you beer and hot wings.

  249. Jeebers, this poat is still limping along? Someone should put it our of its misery.

  250. This is the Methusalah of poats.

    It smells a bit like three day old coffee and popcorn farts. With a hint of jalopeno flavored sunflower seeds.

  251. wow I should NOT have napped so late.

  252. WHAT PLANET AM I ON?

  253. Yes!
    Only mostly! But I’m quite alright now!
    Surely you can see that!

    Uh huh. Sure you are OK.

    You see this aluminum softball bat in my hand, don’t you?

  254. Oh hells no:

    Seattle School Renames Easter Eggs as ‘Spring Spheres’

    I’m surprised that she was allowed to fill the “Spring Spheres” with candy.

  255. The kids knew they weren’t spheres, so they went with the proper names.

  256. I see Michael is still in rage mode.

  257. Nobody was behind calling them “Spring Ovoids.” Nobody.

  258. Jeebus, Angels. What the fuck?

  259. I’ve never seen a poat get this dead.
