Fox News is reporting (and Wikipedia, crappy source that it is, has apparantly confirmed) that Jack “Dr. Death” Kevorkian has died. (No word on whether anyone helped him or not.)
Good. Fucking. Riddance.

Reports are coming in that the 21:30 CT Presidential speech is going to report that Osama Bin Laden has been killed.
UPDATE 21:47 CT — Pentagon officials via Fox News are stating that the Al Queda leader was killed one week ago in a US military bombing. DNA testing on the body is what was the delay in confirmation was for. No news if he was killed in Afghanistan or Pakistan.
UPDATE 22:10 CT — AP reports that he was killed in a compound in Islamabad, Pakistan.
UPDATE 22:28 CT — Reports on Fox News are saying that it was a covert US ground operation in Pakistan that took out Bin Laden and that’s how the body was retrieved for DNA testing.
What should this tell the rest of the world? Plain and simple. We.WILL.FIND.YOU!!!!!
UPDATE 22:35 CT — President is now commenting on the news.
UPDATE 10:00 5/2/2011 — Please continue to pray for those members of our military all across the globe, but especially those still in harms way in Pakistan and Afghanistan. As you can imagine, this is GOING to cause retaliation strikes by just about every extremist anti-American group in the region.

Here is a report on the manner in which a Mississippi town dealt with the fools of Westboro Baptist Church.
I have spent some time thinking about this today, and have come to the conclusion that people such as Westboro do have the right to publicly assemble, and express their opinion. The people of the community also have the right to express their opinion. This was not a government action, it was an organic coming together of the people to protect members of the community from outsiders who wished them harm. The harm was emotional, but it was still harm.
Hats off to the people of Brandon Mississippi!

As long as the Senate doesn’t fark with things that is.
If House Republicans have their way, the Obama administration’s “czars” will no longer be able to dictate pay at bailed-out mega-firms or negotiate new emissions standards for U.S. vehicles. An amendment attached to the 2011 spending package, which passed the House last week, would strip funding for a select list of the so-called czars.
Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., the author of the proposal, hailed the vote as a step toward ending the administration’s “shadow government.”
“Hardworking American families should not be forced to pay millions of dollars to fund these czars, who are implementing radical policies under the cloak of darkness,” Scalise said in a written statement.
Darn tootin’ right we shouldn’t have to fund these “beholden to NO ONE” progressive activists or worse. It’s bad enough that WE THE PEOPLE are being taxed to to the point where dimes, nickels, and pennies are about all we have left anymore. But these clowns are are getting paid with OUR tax dollars, and they’re making POLICY decisions with ZERO oversight or public approval. Last time I checked, that was taxation without representation….which if the numbnuts in D.C. would stop for THREE SECONDS they would see that such measures are patently UNconstitutional.
The Scalise amendment was a refined version of a catch-all anti-czar bill he introduced earlier in the session. That bill called for effectively shutting down any Executive Office task force or office led by an official who had not received Senate confirmation. At the time, Scalise estimated that 39 officials would fall under that description.
The latest amendment, which would still have to survive a vote in the Democratic-controlled Senate, narrowed that list down to nine positions. Several of them have been responsible for shepherding high-profile policy changes that Republicans opposed practically in lockstep.
Start writing and calling your Reps and Senators folks, this needs to be changed back to all 39 and have them defunded, then summarily escorted off the premises. Poste Haste.
You have your duty assignments, time to get to work.

So back on Friday, the news that Keithy-weefy Olberman has jumped shark and severed his contract with the illustrious (P)MSNBC. Just when things were going soooooo welll. Not.
Even the Associated Piss found out that (P)MSNBC and Keithy-weefy weren’t BFFs.
Keith Olbermann’s exit from MSNBC appeared abrupt to viewers of his show, but the TV news commentator and his network were involved “in a relationship that’s been failing for a long time,” an NBC Universal executive said Saturday.
Sounds like the execs at the network were tired of cleaning up the trash Keithy-weefy caused from all of his barking moonbat excrement.
Olbermann was nearly fired in November but instead was suspended for two days without pay for violating an NBC News policy by donating to the political campaigns of three Democratic candidates, including the congressional campaign of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. He returned and apologized to his fans, but not the network.
Gee, guess that kinda confirms that the execs decided they weren’t gonna play janitor no more.
I have a couple of theories on the the REAL reason Keithy-weefy is now finding himself in the unemployment line.
First, Keithy-weefy was SOOOOOOOOO sure he was getting the well-used leather chair over at the Communist News Network and fill the spot recently vacated by another old dude that when CNN announced that the spot was filled by Piers Morgan ol’ Keithy-weefy didn’t understand the irony that just bitchslapped him.
Second, and more probable IMHO, is that he knew The Onion was about to start up their news show this week and just could not bear the thought of giving them volumes of free material to work with that he had to get outta town before the last stagecoach departed. Yup, The Onion News Network is kicking off it’s cable show this Friday the 28th at 9pm ET on IFC.
Finally, all I gotta say is “BUH BYE Keithy-weefy.” That’s one less progressive screaming his mantra on the airwaves.

Denizens, I realize youse guys get sick & tired of me ranting and raving all the rime…
K’HADIBAK’H: Whatever gave you that idea, m’lord?
VENOMOUS: Hush, you.
Anyway, I figured I’d give you guys some good news, just in case this had flown under your radar: Widdle Mikey Steele is out as GOP chairman.
Wisconsin Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus was elected chair of the Republican National Committee on Friday, defeating four other candidates — including incumbent Michael S. Steele — in seven rounds of voting.
Priebus never trailed in the voting, slowly building on his tally until he surpassed a majority of the 168 voting members.
Steele, the gaffe-prone former lieutenant governor of Maryland who was elected as chairman in January 2009, dropped out of contention after the fourth round of balloting.
Probably the best decision he made during his two years in office.
Don’t know much about Priebus – from what little I’ve read from him, Dan Riehl hates his guts – but he did oversee the defeat of Widdle Russie “Fifi” Feingold…and, even in this recent era of anti-Demoscum-incumbent sentiment, that’s no mean feat.
Time will tell if he’s any sort of improvement, or just a white Mikey Steele. But I’m willing to give him a chance, at least, on the hope that he’s not as incompetent as Steele.
Besides…he’s not Steele, and that has to count for something. Right?

And the final from Reno, NV:
It is a Perfect Football Weekend already. I don’t give a shit what the rest of my teams do.
UPDATE: ESPN showed one of the Wolfpack touchdowns coming off what looked like a double reverse (though it coulda been just a single – I only got one look at it).
Memo to Chrissy Peterson: Live by the trick play, die by the trick play, you dumbass.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer team.

(Via BaD Radio over at the ticket)
Babe Laufenberg & Bill Jones over at KTVT Channel 11 in Dallas are reporting (via Twitter) that Coach Stay-Puf, Wade Phillips, has been shown the door after yet another miserable loss, this time to the Packers at Green Bay, 7-45.
More later in the PFW mega-recap, plus a link when it becomes available.
UPDATE: And as promised…the link.
Jesus Genius” Garrett takes over on an interim basis, i.e. the rest of the season. Whereupon Owner Jethro will immdiately hire someone else on whom the other 31 teams passed, who will in turn spare all of us to death.
The more things change…

Doug Powers over at Michelle’s site is reporting that Robert “KKKKKKKKKKKKKKK” Byrd is dead at the age of 92.
I refer back to what my dear, sainted mother (God rest her soul) always said to me about “if you can’t say anything nice”, etc.

In other news this weekend, we find that actor/director Dennis Hopper has died of prostate cancer.
Don’t know whether the Realm is prepared to mourn or not. Hopper was known to be a Reagan Republican, having voted with the GOP since 1980 – but the beautiful & talented Michelle (actually, her guest blogger Doug Powers) reports that Hopper voted for Bambi in 2008.
Hopper also voted for George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, and was a very early supporter of GOP candidate John McCain for president in 2005. Ultimately, however, he ended up voting for Barack Obama saying Sarah Palin swung him away from McCain.
I will not mourn any son-of-a-bitch who helped sell this country down the fucking river by voting for Jugears McHopenchange, the Kenyan Ayatollah.
Knowing what he represented and voting for him anyway? To me, that’s tantamount to treason.
So I’ll note that Dennis Hopper died, and leave it at that.

Breitbart is reporting that Arlen Specter, aka “Benedict Sphincter”, has officially been shown the door, losing in the Demoscummic primary to Widdle Joey Sestak.
Good fucking riddance.

In a move that should surprise absolutely no one – given that a huge-assed humiliating defeat was staring the Pussified Pro-Abort Porker square in his fugly face – Bartleby Stupid has decided to cut and run.
Rep. Bart Stupak plans to announce his retirement today, top Democrats briefed on his decision say.
In other words, “Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin”.
Was it worth it, Bartleby? I mean, the GOP is going to take over Congress, and either repeal BambiCare outright, or possibly defund it – and you will have gotten nothing, and federally-funded baby-butchering will become the law of the land.
And as if that weren’t enough – and, Bah Gawd don’tcha think it oughta be? – you will forever be known in history as one of the most cowardly Congresscritters ever.
Or, as Doug Ross so succinctly put it:
Brave Sir Stupak ran away. Bravely ran away, away.
When a tough vote reared its ugly head, He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes Brave Sir Stupak turned about, He gallantly chickened out.
