Don't Be Hatin'

Well, in the case of Lee, I'm a hater. The miracle of Fort Green is that this race hustlin' poseur is still making movies and taken seriously by those who should know better. Not by everyone, though. Me? I'm just annoyed because I've liked the name Spike since long before Baby Spike in Trouble In Mind and this one note ass blows a good name, rendering it unusable.

Poor Spike. No Oscar. But what's with the Pee Wee Herman lookin' glasses? Not that Pee Wee wore any spectacles.

Palin’s Moment
Previewing Thursday.

By Mark Goldblatt

Thank you for the question, Ms. Ifill — patronizing though it is. And, yes, if pressed, I could probably stand up right now, walk across the stage and name every country on that blank map of the Middle East you’ve so graciously set up for me. But I think I’ll pass.

First of all, I’d rather not spend next week fielding questions about whether I saw Tina Fey doing another impression of me of Saturday Night Live, this time bending over to point out Yemen — during which, of course, she’ll throw in a blank stare and gratuitous wiggle of her butt in order to suggest that the only reason John McCain picked me for the vice presidential slot was because I was once a beauty queen.

Second of all, I’d rather not log onto the Internet next week and discover that one of your producers has surreptitiously supplied Bill Maher, who two weeks ago called me a “category five moron,” with a camera angle that shows a flash of cleavage — which, of course, he will freeze-frame and weave into an obscene rant.

The point, Ms. Ifill, is that ever since I accepted Sen. McCain’s invitation to be his running mate, I’ve become an object of ridicule and derision among the media elites whose commitment to political correctness apparently admits an exception for howling, sophomoric sexism as long as it is directed at their ideological adversaries.

It’s not that I expected a fair shake, Heaven knows. I realize that there’s a deep-seated emotional investment among liberal commentators in the candidacy of Barack Obama. I watched them chew up and spit out one of their perennial darlings — Hillary Clinton — when she stood in the way of their group hug. I heard Senator Clinton called a “big f — -ing whore” by an Air America host; I heard one MSNBC host accuse her of “pimping out” her daughter, another call her a “she-devil,” and a third suggest that she needed to be taken into a backroom and beaten senseless to convince her to drop out of the primary race. And I heard a CBS News anchor — yes, the same one who turned a recent interview with me into a pop quiz — ask Sen. Clinton if she remembered being nicknamed “Miss Frigidaire” in school. Ugly stuff, isn’t it? So it’s no surprise that when Senator McCain began to surge in the polls after he selected me as his running mate, the liberal media would come loaded for bear every time I made a public statement.

Ever since Senator McCain made that selection, by the way, I’ve been working hard to get up to speed on foreign policy and global issues. The reason I wasn’t up to speed beforehand is that, curiously enough, I’d been focusing all my energy on doing the jobs I’d been elected to do. When I was elected mayor of Wasilla, I tried to be a good mayor. When I was elected governor of the Alaska, I tried to be a good governor. I didn’t regard either position as a stepping stone to anything else. I saw no need to go on fact-finding tours, at taxpayers’ expense, to foreign countries in an effort to bolster my geopolitical credentials for higher office.

By the time John McCain and I take office in January, rest assured I will be up to speed on geopolitics. I will be altogether qualified to be a heartbeat from the presidency. And I’ll surround myself with altogether qualified advisers and staff, not yes-men and yes-women. Because I know from experience — the very experience my opponent, Sen. Biden, lacks — what it is like to make an executive decision. I know what it is like, after the legislative wrangling is done, after the wheeling and dealing by party hacks who are determined to maintain political cover and plausible deniability, to have the buck stop at my desk, to enact a law by my signature, to put my name on the bottom line.

So no, Ms. Ifill, I think I’ll keep my seat. You can take down your blank map. I came here tonight to discuss, to the best of my abilities, the international and domestic issues that confront the United States and to provide the American people with an insight into my governing philosophy. I didn’t come to convince voters that I could be a Jeopardy champion. If that’s the main qualification for the vice presidency, then I’d suggest both Sen. Biden and I step aside for Ken Jennings.

Who knows? Perhaps Stripped-Of-His-Black-Judicial-Robes Black Democrat extortioner ex-judge but still Black Congressman Alcee (thanks for that name, Mom) Hastings' morbid apology indicates a sorrowful sincerity equal to his happy distain for hunters sportsmen Jews and Palins. Dunno. Apologies such as his are easily uttered and more often than not meaningless. Still, he's just another lucky -- if ungrateful -- American idiot so let's accept, forgive, forget and move on dot com.

Aww, Heather

This is what's important. What's important to me anyway.
The 47- (huh? say it ain't so) year-old actress was arrested Saturday night in Santa Barbara for “driving erratically” upon leaving a parking lot.According to The Associated Press, Heather was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription medication. She was later released without having to post bail.
Reps for Heather have not commented on this situation as yet.

I'm not her rep but I won't comment either. 'Cept can you say Jenny Gardner? Aww, Kim.


Like Eve Ensler, Congressman Barney Frank fetishizes the microphones and thinks of what? Huh? What? Focus, Barney.

Feel The Joy

Let's see, Washington Mutual was closed and sold because of toxic debt, the largest bank failure yet, and their final press release is wamucoocooing about their splendid diversity. Woohoo. Wahmoo. We may be financial losers, but we're diversly correct. Si se puede, hermano.

WaMu Recognized as Top Diverse Employer—Again
Company ranks in top ten of Hispanic Business’ Diversity Elite and earns perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index
SEATTLE, WA (September 24, 2008) – Washington Mutual, Inc. (NYSE:WM), one of the nation’s leading banks for consumers and small businesses, has once again been recognized as a top employer by Hispanic Business magazine and the Human Rights Campaign.

Hispanic Business magazine recently ranked WaMu sixth in its annual Diversity Elite list, which names the top 60 companies for Hispanics. The company was honored specifically for its efforts to recruit Hispanic employees, reach out to Hispanic consumers and support Hispanic communities and organizations.

The Human Rights Campaign, the largest national gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) civil rights organization, also awarded WaMu its second consecutive 100 percent score in the organization’s 2009 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), which measures progress in attaining equal rights for GLBT employees and consumers. WaMu joins the ranks of 259 other major U.S. businesses that also received top marks in the annual survey. The CEI rated a total of 583 businesses on GLBT-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination policies and domestic partner benefits.

In both surveys, WaMu earned points for competitive diversity policies and programs, including the recently established Latino, African American and GLBT employee network groups, all of which have a corporate executive sponsor and champion.

“Diversity is an integral part of cultivating a welcoming, innovative and dynamic workplace here at WaMu. We are proud to be recognized for the opportunities and benefits we offer to all of our employees, including the specific efforts we have made to engage Hispanics and the GLBT community,” said Steve Rotella, WaMu president and COO. “We are committed to diversity at WaMu and pledge to listen to our customers and work closely with our employees to continue to make progress.”

These two recent honors build upon diversity recognitions WaMu received earlier in 2008. WaMu was named one of 25 Noteworthy Companies by Diversity Inc magazine and one of the Top 50 Corporations for Supplier Diversity by Hispanic Enterprise magazine.

We may be bankrupt, but we be rainbowed. Come in and feel the joy of banking. You feelin' the WooHoo? Barney Frank is.

Unholy Trinity

From Tuesday's Pruden

We're told that this is no time to play the blame game. But why not? Since we're all stockholders now in a vast Ponzi scheme, we should have some say in who gets thrown into the street and who doesn't. The Democrats are particularly eager to avoid the blame game. They fiercely opposed legislation in 2005 that would have imposed sanity on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, whence came this misery. The legislation was written by three senators, including, as it happens, John McCain. The senators who blocked it were, as it happens, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Chris Dodd. This unholy trio took more than a quarter of a million dollars in campaign contributions from executives and employees of Fannie and Freddie. Just a coincidence, of course.

Fear of Rednecks by the Pencilnecked

My word. Received the Tim Wise piece in an email yesterday, forwarded by an esteemed colleague, via a child of his who coaches somewhere-to-remain-unnamed in the east, with this intro:
This piece was written by a white, university professor, who
understands the double standards of the privilege in our nation.

This is Your Nation on White Privilege
By Tim Wise • 9/13/08

You wanna read it? You click on the link. I can summarize:
Blah blah blah. White folk bad in general. Palins bad in particular. White boys with guns bad bad. America really bad. Snore.

Had to respond to my colleague, saying I found the piece:

Fun, yeah. In the spirit of campaign sport -- the sport of words not action.

But mostly loving that this white privilege screed arrives via a lacrosse coach at [deleted name of effete elite eastern undergraduate college].

And speaking of lacrosse, strange that this would come from a coach. How soon we forget. I kinda recall that the "white privilege" thing was a major charge against the Duke lacrosse team in the bogus rape case -- a surly charge hurled by the same kind of shrill harridan professors and administrators as Tim Wise, most of whom were white too, giving them that special insight into double standards. The charge of undue privilege is as untrue regarding the Palins as it was untrue about the Duke boys.

Me? I like our randy, fertile Palins -- Todd, Sarah, the brood -- and I like the Alaska they represent, like that they're replenishing the gene pool with their hardiness. I like their commons sense, loyalty and faith. Their future son-in-law? Let's let Levi spread his seed far and wide. We need more high-testosteroned boys like him, fewer like it's obvious little white Timbo was as a teen. Time for some 'firmative action for fuckin' rednecks 'round here. Time for fewer self-loathing whiteys across the fruited plain. Probably a blessing the Wise spawn are daughters, not sons.

As we see, some days it's difficult for me to suppress the latent Spiro Agnew in me. Now I gotta go read some more about Professor Bill Ayers and his mad bomber SDS days with his beloved wife and how his white privilege -- and banker daddy -- kept him outta prison and how he and the missus ended up neighbors of the O-you-know-who-amas in Hyde Park, the only white-ish neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. Talk about double protective privilege standards.

Professor little white Squibbo Wise is just another tenured race hustler on the make.

Jesus be a voting machine. Amen.

Yours truly.

The Fountainhead

Kondracke said, on Special Report this afternoon, that he's not "smart enough" to understand this economix stuff. "Well then off with your head," said Hume. 
Me? I don't understand it eye-thur. Not that I cannot grasp it, just that I haven't yet. Haven't tried. No gold coins buried in my back yard. No bullion in my bomb shelter -- yeah, there's a 60's era bomb shelter out back. Filled mostly with mosquitos and spiders.....I can only point to some dwindling digits in my 403B.
Wait. I'm factoring in Barney Frank perhaps it is understandable:

Look, I love Laura Bush, and her mother-in-law, and I like and admire and respect and am grateful to and for double-you (can you say NO fascist-Muslim attacks in/on America since nine one one?). 
But W ain't Laura or Barbara and he's hanging with Wall street princes and why should I trust these belted guys when they're bailing out 90's Clinton-crony-DNC-contributing BANKERS?  Can you say Gorelick? I can. Gorelick.
Look again. I cannot buy a home in coastal southern California. I accept that. 
I cannot buy a condo (by definition not a "home" in my book) here either -- hardworking and credit worthy though I am. 
I can barely buy a cabin in the woods. Or if I get one in California I could pay the mortgage but not the property taxes.
I ain't complaining or whining or wishing or hoping. I'm just saying. 
I'm propertyless even though many around me were purchasing unreal estate the past few years.  I did not even try in the past few years -- tho I may have qualified under current -- or recently current -- mortgage lender "guidelines." 
My estate is not real.
I cannot afford a west coast mortgage so I do not/did not paper myself fraudulently -- even though the frauds advertise on my favorite radio shows. Can you say talk radio?
Now we're bailing out my "neighbors?"
Effing eff that. Effing eff them.
My taxes are too high already 
And now, who is it, PKlein at American Spectator who says that Paulson intimates that college loans may be included in this BAILOUT.
Wait. Now you have my attention. Wait. Now I understand this bailout thing. Wait, now I approve. Good Job PauliePaul!
This thing could get me outta my last debt. God Bless President Bush. God Bless the Gang of I-don't-know-how-many-Senators-it-takes-to-socialize-my-undergraduate-daze.  
Hey. I have no credit card debts. I finished that madness. 
Hey, I have no car loans. I paid off my Ford Eskapay (spelled like Escape) and am rolling debt-free on two lane blacktop. 
And though I put my Masters degree on MasterCard, I paid that off in no time at all. 
But UNDERGRAD? I still owe for that. 
When Paulson intimates that college loans might be included in the "bailout," then suddenly my idiotic youthful socialist bent reasserts itself.

Think I'm kidding? I didn't make this up. Saw this on American Spectator:
Credit Cards and the Bailout - Tuesday, September 23, 2008 @ 5:38:08 PM
Another thing I should have mentioned about Paulson's testimony is that he left the door open for the possibility that in addition to mortgage securities, the bailout could include credit cards, student loans, and auto loans. (U.S. consumer debt -- excluding mortgages -- is $2.6 trillion.) While he wouldn't say so directly, he kept emphasizing that though troubled mortgage assets were the main problem, he'd want the flexibility to also purchase investments in other asset classes as part of the overall plan to restore liquidity to the market. This raises serious questions about the potential for mission creep that he didn't have a clear answer for today.

Hey, wasn't it Mrs. Barry Obama who said just days ago that I oughtta vote not cute, nope, I oughtta vote based on SELF INTEREST:

Every one's talking about her "cute" comment. That's not the tell. Her tell is: Self Interest. Self Interest? You could bail me out, buy me out, rescue me. Point our grave representatives in the direction of my tip jar while I vote self first.
Vote according to Self Interest? That isn't what her husband said before the assembled adorers in Denver. But, thank you for clearing that up Me-chelle Ayn Rand Obama. And thanks for the reminder. But I'm thinking I'll bail myself out.

Party Girls

Andrew Breitbart, in Enough Is Enough (Is Enough), notes the bile leaking past the Kofferdams of Strap-On Cho, freaky Lohan and mouthy Bernhard en route to Cruisy O'Donnell:
Not since Rosie O'Donnell & Co. manhandled Elizabeth Hasselbeck weekdays on "The View" have liberals been so gleeful to watch a bitter lesbian tear down a confident and beautiful conservative Republican woman. Unresolved high school lust and angst at well-adjusted cheerleaders and popular prom queens should be left for medical professionals, not for midmorning television gabfests.

Full version here. Thanks, Breitbart, for reminding me of my own unresolved high school -- to say nothing of college -- lust/s. Forget any angst, never (well, okay, rarely) getting to tap some of that good stuff, how'd I miss donning the bitter cap like those sad broads?


Another Partial From Victor David Hanson:
A Sense of Balance
(And/or: You Know All This In Your Hearts)

I am not calling for yokelism, or a proponent of false-populism. Rather, I wish to remind everyone that there are two fonts of wisdom: formal education, and the tragic world of physical challenge and ordeal. Both are necessary to be broadly educated. Familiarity with Proust or Kant is impressive, but not more impressive than the ability to wire your house or unclog the labyrinth of pipes beneath it.

In this regard, I think Palin can speak, and reason, and navigate with bureaucrats and lawyers as well as can Obama; but he surely cannot understand hunters, and mechanics and carpenters like she can. And a Putin or a Chavez or a Wall-Street speculator that runs a leverage brokerage house is more a hunter than a professor or community organizer. Harvard Law School is not as valuable a touchstone to human nature as raising five children in Alaska while going toe-to-toe with pretty tough, hard-nose Alaskan males.

Me? I cannot summon the hopeful audacity it requires to offer my take on Mr. Hanson. He stands sans comment. You? You read the whole thing, read it here.

First They Came For Books In Wasilla

Google's YouTube has now banned all videos glamourising weapons.
Banning? Larry Page and Sergey Brin could learn a trick or two from my mom. Back in the olden days, when trash burning was still allowed within the city limits, she burned my copy of Harold Robbins' The Carpetbaggers. Up in flames in the back yard. Alas, she was too late. The corrupting influence of the NYTimes best sellers list had already commenced to setting me on this downward spiral.
Wonder if that Page/Brin/Google/YouTube video ban includes Tennessee glamour boys Jackie and Dunlap's Red State Update take on GUNS! over at YouTube. Better view that update quick before some Obama supporter complains about the bitter gun-clingin' going on and Larry and Serge have that video removed.

"It would be a disgrace and a humiliation if Barack Obama does not win," Woody Allen told Spanish journalists at the ongoing 56th San Sebastian film festival, where his latest film "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" is being screened.

"It would be a very, very terrible thing for the United States in many, many ways," he said.

The New York Sun today provides one more reason to consider anew Miss Coulter's 2000 take on repealing the 19th Amendment:

Even some prominent figures admitted to being overcome by anti-Palin feelings. "I am having Sarah Palin nightmares," an acclaimed playwright and writer, Eve Ensler, wrote on the Huffington Post. She said she was disturbed by the chants about oil and gas drilling during Mrs. Palin's speech to the Republican convention. "I think of rape. I think of destruction. I think of domination," Ms. Ensler wrote.

Google to sell first branded phone for $199: report

-- Google Inc.'s much-awaited mobile device based on the company's "Android" software is expected to sell for $199, a published report said Wednesday.
Departing from the practice of listing only the manufacturer and wireless carrier, the device will also showcase the Google brand, The Wall Street Journal said in its online edition, citing unnamed sources.
The Google phone is expected to be introduced on Sept. 23, the Journal said.
The Google phone will be manufactured by Taiwan's HTC Group and will require service with T-Mobile USA, a unit of Deutsche Telekom.
The report said T-Mobile plans to introduce data plans that would make the phone "aggressively priced." Google will contribute resources to develop the phone as a way of helping T-Mobile reduce its costs, the report said.

Where's Jill Greenberg When You Need Her?

This just in from Art Forum as critiqued by Andrew Hultkrans
David Dames being waterboarded at a performance in conjunction with Steve Powers's Waterboard Thrill Ride.

Inside the room ... two paramedics stood by a gurney behind the crowd of thirty or so spectators (many of them journalists). Powers introduced himself and the event by saying that he didn’t intend the Thrill Ride to be political art, but “more like life drawing,” a representational act that “couldn’t be pushed to the right or the left.” He praised Coney Island, where he has lived and worked for years, as a “good place to confront horror.” He noted that today was the Feast of the Assumption (when Mary ascends into heaven) and that Catholics worldwide celebrate it with water rites.

Defending the provocative artwork ... Powers has said, “What’s more obscene, the official position that waterboarding is not torture or our official position that it’s a thrill ride?”

Now, let’s be clear, anyone who maintains that repeated, ritualized suffocation isn’t torture is a) not being serious, b) is an authoritarian sadist, or c) is covering his ass for war-crime liability. Powers has generated a lot of gawking press with his rather unsubtle piece, but at least he’s willing to eat from the pot he’s stirring, which is more than one can say for Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, John Yoo, and Alberto Gonzales.

Yeah, another piece that can't be pushed right or left. I kinda remember that the Feast of the Assumption is also observed with fruits and herbs. Probably some of that going on here too. Herbiness and fruitiness. Why is it not a surprise that many of the voyeurs, er, art loving spectators present were journalists? Or that our critic could fit in a side-eye to Dick Cheney? Or that when the boarding was over and the fluids towelled up all in the audience were invited to the Freak Bar next door, for "beer and bonhomie?" Down the hatch, bro.

One center-left Russian cannibal and student of the Democrat party platform (USA cell) did not expect to be punished, saying: “Satan will help me to avoid responsibility. I made lots of sacrifices to him. I was a community organizer.”
