How Happy are you that the NFL Refs are coming back?

Are you this happy?



Or this happy?

Maybe this happy?

Maybe just meh?

Maybe it’s just me, huh?

Happy Thursday, and I hope we get a HUGE blown call tonight. That would be awesome!

  1. You thought you were missing a day? Look, it’s almost BBF! You’re almost missing 2 now!

  2. nice

  3. These look familiar.

  4. You are the wind beneath my wings, Dave.

    Poat wise, that is.

  5. Rack for breakfast.

  6. And good morning

  7. You got freed, Vman. M’wah!

  8. Good poat, Jay. But you’re missing a Mike Rowe pic. And he makes me happy.

  9. Hmm, is the twitter notifier broken here, too? I had to fix the one at UP too.

  10. Nope, there it is, just took a while.

  11. Was I in the bucket Cyn? I have not been in the bucket in a while. Thanks!

  12. I couldn’t find a pic with him in a cheerleader outfit.

  13. I know this is reason 198743567 that makes me teh ghey, but I don’t watch football and I don’t like it very much.

  14. To redeem myself of the ridicule that is sure to follow, I will have you know that I’m listening to Guns n’ Roses right now and punching a kitten.

    But mostly just listening to GnR.

  15. It’s better than 95% of everything else on TV, MJ.

    So there’s that.

  16. Yes, Vman, you made teh bucket.

  17. I can understand why you don’t like football much. Or baseball.

    You’re from Chicagoland. It’s hard to keep up interest.

  18. I couldn’t find a pic with him in a cheerleader outfit.

    *humph*

  19. Nevertheless, the logistical advantage the president’s team has built — which is apparently evident in a recent series of non-partisan state polls showing him with a sizable lead…

    This is the soft bias that is every-fucking-where. What exactly does a logistical advantage in ground game structure have to do with polling exactly?

    Nothing. This is all bullshit.

  20. I know this is reason 198743567 that makes me teh ghey, but I don’t watch football and I don’t like it very much.

    *shuns and cries a bit, knowing that he will soon be taken to latex and Pokemon suits like Rosetta; shakes head sadly*

  21. Heh, so now logistics is propping up the propoganda? I’ll have to let my brother know, he just started a business in Trans Log.

  22. How’s Mrs. J’Ames healing up?

  23. I love logistics! Especially when the logisticators wear those cute brown shorts and they’re nice and tan (without too much hair on their legs).

  24. She’s doing well. Her arm doesn’t hurt at all now, and she went to sleep in the bed last night, instead of the couch.

    She’s got a nasty incision, worse than the last one, and I’m sure that’s sore. But it’s better than your whole arm and shoulder throbbing all the time. Got the adhesives cleaned up, and she was able to take a real shower, which made her feel a lot better.

  25. Excellent! She’ll be making you sammiches pain-free in no time then!

  26. I’ll bet bet Mike Rowe looks good wearing brown logistics shorts.

  27. ‘nuther long-assed day away from the computer…

    Later peeps.

  28. I only watch college ball, and only my alma mater. NFL is pretty meaningless to me. I don’t even watch the superbowl.

  29. Glad Mrs. J’Ames is feeling better!

  30. I saw Juan Williams insisting that the polls showing Obama getting a Democrat turnout bigger than 2008 were good, and that Republicans were just kidding themselves for doubting them.

    He was laughing at the Republican and rolling his googly eyes around while the clearly unbelievable poll internals were being discussed. He would not even address them, continuing to point at the poll results. As if he didn’t realize that the conversation was about how those results were in dispute.

    The full-on press to gaslight us is intensifying. And we are absolutely, absolutely, being gaslighted. The pollsters don’t like how we’re questioning them, and the media-punditocracy is circling wagons around them.

    It’s starting to get really obvious and the meme is propagating right in time with all the people pointing at the stupid sampling.

  31. Whenever I think that there can’t possibly be a media conspiracy, or a predetermined narrative, I remind myself that Jurno-list really existed.

    The bullshit is just so obvious this election.

    Economy? Never heard of it.

    Libya? Don’t have any information on that!

    Romney sent a tweet? HOLD THE PRESSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. Beckel was doing the same thing, laura. Looks like they all got their talking points.

  33. That reminds me. I’m going to pick up my Romney sign today. I’ve never had a yard so this is a first for me. Come to think of it, I’ve never had a car that I could put a magnet on until this election.

  34. There’s a good link from one of Ace’s posts yesterday on how the NYT used bogus polls and flim-flam to try to persuade voters that Carter was close or had outright leads in nine state, nine states he lost to Reagan.

    http://spectator.org/archives/2012/09/25/how-carter-beat-reagan/print

  35. That was an awesome article, Dave. Loved it.

    In fact, it was terrific.

  36. Meeting time! Try not to burn the place down!

  37. Juan is a douchenozzle.

  38. Hah! I knew it. Plus if you figure in how Obama’s administration bullies pollsters and the media, it all clickety-clacks together like a Lego kit.

  39. Comment by mare on September 26, 2012 6:00 pm
    Hotspur, put any framing up that should be 16 inches apart but you decided to be a bitch and put them at 18?

    No. That would be the equivalent of fucking myself, as we build the entire building, not just the framing.

  40. This whole narrative is bullshit. I checked the data of the ten states divided by less than 10 points in 2008 and Romney is holding all of the red states, and will take NC and Indiana from Obama.

    The remaining states, VA, FL, OH, NH, and IA are within a few points, meaning one good push could tip them to Romney.

    Wisconsin, which Obama won by a wide margin is in play.

    Obama’s map is shrinking, and he’s underperforming from 2008. Romney is ahead of McCain, although still trailing Obama. He’s closing the gap and poised to strike.

    This could easily be the narrative.

  41. But ball gargling is the preferred past time of our media. Not analysis.

  42. More detailed stuff here.

    http://is.gd/YjOxxa

  43. I’ve had a few cups of coffee. Is it obvious?

  44. Lego my Eggo.

  45. Seems normal to me.

  46. I am a little pissed off at Ohio. They’re like, “well we finally got that Recovery Summer,” and I’m all like, “Well, that’s great…for YOU. Douche.”

  47. I’ve had a few cups of coffee. Is it obvious?
    Heh

  48. If your recovery came at the expense of mine, you’re a parasite.

    Buckeye = parasite. I’m comfortable with that equivalence.

  49. It’s just another “professional sport” so who gives a shit.

  50. MLB is excluded from my previous snark. Also PGA.

  51. You know what I would like? A show that would mostly just focus on what the cheerleaders did during a game. With lots of close-up shots. And slow-mo replay.

  52. I’d watch that. NFLNetwork needs that as an optional feed.

  53. BTN too.

  54. Oh-hi.. oh-hi-yo-yans.

  55. If your recovery came at the expense of mine, you’re a parasite.

    Buckeye = parasite.

    /subscribe

  56. They should make the cheerleaders the refs.

  57. I didn’t think the replacement refs were doing that bad a job until one game ended 15-Love.

  58. I didn’t think the replacement refs were doing that bad a job until one game ended 15-Love.

    Wow, xbrad. That was close. Waiting until the 27th of the month to get your funny in?

  59. How are your chickens, Car in?

  60. Good news for Rosetta

    http://tinyurl.com/9csje7c

  61. I don’t know Xbrad, it was pretty exciting when Green Bay captured the Seahawks’ queen and beheaded that guy on horseback.

    *spits out tiny dead hallucinogenic toad*

  62. http://tinyurl.com/9bf2rpc

  63. We have lots of small toads here. No idea if they’re hallucinogenic.

    Oh, look, a flying pink elephant!

  64. *licks toad I just found out in the garden

    Nothing.

  65. *grinds up toad in blender and makes a fruit smoothy with it

    Still nothing.

  66. BTW, I can’t believe it took me 8 years to get around to watching an episode of The “L” Word.

    Mia Kirshner and Karina Lombard. Sexy.

  67. Don’t yall worry about Ohio. We’ll represent. Dem enthusiasm is in the toilet and O will get zero crossover vote. Bank on it.

  68. xBrad, I need to borrow $42.49. Don’t ask why.

  69. **sells a kidney**

    That’s pretty cheap for a car booster seat, MJ.

  70. Thanks buddy. I’ll pay you back when I get my settlement check from from Disney.

  71. I hope you’re right, Pupster. Toledo is pretty pro-Obama from what I hear. My T-town buds are depressed.

  72. Car in, this is for you. I knew you’d love it.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=tpAOwJvTOio

  73. I don’t know if Iowa will go to Romney, but there isn’t any crossover here. I hope our GOTV effort ramps up, cuz the Dems are owning this state in the presidential race.

    Congressional, I think we have a chance at a 50/50 split with our 4 reps. King and Latham have to win western Iowa, and that’s doable. I’m just worried about the big cities in the middle, which will be blue.

  74. Yea, I saw that. She shouldn’t even be allowed to vote.

    /denounces self as (obviously) racist.

  75. If you substitute some almond meal or coconut meal for the breadcrumbs, this is a pretty good primal way to get rid of some zucchini.

    http://www.fageusa.com/plainkitchen/recipes/zucchini-fritters-with-fage-total-greek-yogurt/

  76. You can just pick it and throw it directly into the compost pile.

    just saying.

  77. Anyone listening to Rush right now?

    The tape of the Obama voter and her free phone? The Pink Floyd spoof?

    I weep.

  78. Wow, Car in sounded just like Dave, there.

  79. Hah. I can’t do that.

    Ended up grating the last big ones up. Sauteed them and froze them in good portions for thickening up Winter soups.

    I picked one last little one this week. The nights are getting too cool to produce any more. Those plants are going into the compost soon.

  80. If Barry steals this election or buys it, whatever……the silver lining is, watching him spin the collapse.

  81. Wow, Car in sounded just like Dave, there.

    He seems busy today, so I’m filling in.

  82. If Barry steals this election or buys it, whatever……the silver lining is, watching him spin the collapse.

    My husband has said more than ones that he’d really like to see what they do when the house of cards collapses.

    I’m not that interested in them having to face the music. I’d like them to start enjoying retirement right away.

  83. The Romney phone is going to kick ass.

    http://is.gd/2kj3Y0

  84. i’m going to kill my son. I really am.

  85. When I lived in Washington, if you had a bag of zucchini in the back seat of your car, you had to lock the doors. Otherwise, you’d come back and find two bags.

    ha ha ha …

    Xbrad’s now ahead. He’s got October covered.

  87. My son forgot to take his NHS acceptance thing to school – it’s due today.

    He needs a ride HOME from school after “quiz bowl”

    Then he needs a ride TO school for soccer practice (at 630 – so too late to stay at school until that starts)

    Then he rneeds a ride home from practice.

    I’m going to kill him.

  88. i’m going to kill my son. I really am.

    Did he get his gf pregnant again?

  89. He should loiter nearby in a coffee shop or something. Mayhap reading Burke.

  90. I’d like them to start enjoying retirement right away.

    Yeah, me too. In a box, under a bridge, down by the river.

  91. The Romney phone is going to kick ass

    I’m pretty sure Swarovski crystal has lead in it. That Romney, always trying to kill people.

  92. Also, if Pirate Girl up there asks for it, send her my contact info.

  93. Greetings, fellow curmudgeons.

  94. I’ll have to give a great big meh to the frackin real refs returning. They screw up too.

    I give a hearty “meat’s up” to the young lady in pic #1.

  95. I don’t have the heart to tell HotBride that I really don’t like grilled eggplant. Lauraw or Cartin, would you take her aside and break it to her gently?

  96. I’m still not sure why eggplant is cultivated.

  97. ZOMG! Drudge is a straight up racist now.

  98. there is growing risk that a 2013 tax shock could push the economy into recession (and there is little the Fed can do to offset the fiscal shock). – RDQ Economics

    from AOS. If so, could they be tanking on purpose, just to set themselves up for a big win, ala 2006? Lame Duck (or dem controlled) Senate would not vote to block the coming tax increases, so it’s certain to hit us.

    ===========

    Wow, Scott better keep producing at night, or it’s right to the compost pile……..

  100. Hey Leon, are meat sweats a gay thing? ‘Cause I’m pretty sure that’s what Cyn gets when she sees a pic of Mike Rowe. 😉

  101. If I get an Obama phone, can I sext Debbie Wasserman Schultz?

  102. I maed you a racism…

  103. You can do that now, George.

  104. No, meat sweats are a human thing. I get them all the time, and Mike Rowe has never been involved.

    I can make no similar statement about Eliza Dushku, however.

  105. *shudders uncontrollably*

  106. ZOMG! Drudge is a straight up racist now.

    Lotsa winking over there right now. I sense a theme.

  107. What the fuck does that woman have in her mouth?

  108. You can do that now, George

    I assumed with the Obama phone, she would be already in speed dial.

  109. Under Obama’s second term, will rats and cockroaches be authorized foodstuffs under Michelle’s USDA? A man’s got to get his protein from somewhere, or so Kal Penn told me.

  110. Lauraw or Cartin, would you take her aside and break it to her gently

    Give me her number.

  111. Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring Obamaphone!

  112. You know what you do, Hotspur? Next time she makes it, you look at the plate, blink a few times, then get up and go make yourself a sammich.

    That’s what Mr Car In did that night I made him falafel for dinner.

  113. >> What the fuck does that woman have in her mouth?

    Not teefes

    >> this is a pretty good primal way to get rid of some zucchini.

    A better primal way would be decapitation and hang the headless body from the tower walls

    Damn, it’s so subtle, you must be almost psychic.

  115. Problem is she brings a plate of it out to me at the grill when I’m making steaks and says “Would you mind flinging these on for a few minutes?”

    *grumble grumble grumble*

    *refills rum glass*

  116. Just burn em, HS.

    Done!

  117. Assume a few minutes means 45 to 50. Maybe aggplant chips aren’t too bad.

  118. Does anyone know how to skewer thousands of cockroaches with an efficient, low cost process?

    Don’t skewer them. Just roast em, and box em up like cereal.

  119. I wonder how they would be smoked?

  120. Eggplants or cockroaches?

  121. Does anyone know how to skewer thousands of cockroaches with an efficient, low cost process?

    Abolish the welfare state.

  122. G.O. wins!

  123. Abolish the welfare state.

    *golf clap.

    Well played, sir.

  124. I think we’re having blog cross over. WEIRD.

  125. I had to make sure you saw that, MJ. Your comment deserved to live on.

  126. I got side tracked with work. Stupid job.

    Cockroach cereal sounds pretty good. It might need a squeeze of lemon to really bring out the nutty flavor.

  127. Cockroaches are high protein, low fat. They can carry a fair bit of toxin load depending on environment, though. If you find a few drowned in a tropical pitcher plant in the Amazon River Basin, go ahead and roast ’em. In Detroit? I’d pass and look for healthier options, like raccoon or hobo.

  128. I wouldn’t eat the raccoon. They might have been eating the hobos eating the cockroaches.

  129. Raccoon? Pretty soon in Detroit, it’s going to be cannibalism at the drive-through.

  130. Hello Kitty is racist. I think we’ve finally reached the point where it’s just simpler to list the things that aren’t racist.

    1. Voting for Obama

    That’s pretty much it.

  131. I loved that cartoon. Hello Kitty makes me laugh.

  132. I wondered why, nowadays when you buy a set of bedsheets, they always come with two precut holes in them.

  133. George, that’s not bedding, you’re at Dress Barn.

  134. I loved that cartoon. Hello Kitty makes me laugh.

    You sicken me.

  135. Mr. Bont, you are in Clownifornia, yes? I have this gut hunch that Clownifornia will never elect a Republican governor ever again. Certainly there will be no more Republican senators from this state.

    I have this sinking feeling that the nation may have reached the same point with respect to presidents.

  136. George, that’s not bedding, you’re at Dress Barn

    My God, so now dresses are racist too?

  137. See the above list, Eric.

  138. New poat.
