Item:  The headline here reads as follows:

‘Colbert,’ ‘SpongeBob’ may go dark on Time Warner

The reaction:  And this would be a Bad Thing™…why again?

I don’t know if I’m at liberty to do so, hence I’m going to keep my mouth shut on it.

But Denizens, your assignment tonight is to pray for the SpatulaGoddess™.

ThatIsAll™.

UPDATE:  I guess it can now be revealed, seeing as she did.

The Realm™ mourns with the SpatulaGoddess today.

We love you, Beff.

The Department of Happy Events is most exceedingly pleased to report that Bristol Palin is now the mother of a bouncing baby boy.

The daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has given birth to a son, a magazine reported Monday.

Bristol Palin, 18, gave birth to Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on Saturday, People magazine reported online. He weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces. Colleen Jones, the sister of Bristol’s grandmother, told the magazine that “the baby is fine and Bristol is doing well.”

[...]

The father is Levi Johnston, a former hockey player at Alaska’s Wasilla High School.

Y’hear that, leftist mongoloids?  Levi JohnstonNOT  Todd Palin, you fucking bastards.

The Realm™ congratulates Levi & Bristol and wishes them much future happiness.

If Al-Qaida were to fly a plane into Lincoln Financial Field, just so I wouldn’t have to hear that piece of shit “Fly Eagles Fly” anymore – all would be forgiven.

For that matter, if someone wanted to bulldoze both Texas Stadium and that monstrosity out in Arlington, I’d be inclined to give them sanctuary.

I’m not sure it’s time to push the (for lack of a better term) “panic button” yet in re:  “End Times” prophecy or anything.

But I do  think this is probably going to push things along a bit.

ISRAEL’S air force has fired about 30 missiles at targets in the Gaza Strip, destroying Hamas police compounds and killing at least 140 people.

Television footage showed dead bodies scattered on a road and wounded and dead being carried away by distraught rescuers. There was widespread damage to buildings.

Of course, what the bastards at News.com don’t  tell you right off the bat is why  Israel responded as it did.  That  doesn’t come until slightly later:

The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the attack, which followed a decision by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s security cabinet to widen reprisals for cross-border Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel.

Which, of course, Roto-Reuters was at least decent enough to tell you almost from the start.

Militants in the Gaza Strip, who have launched dozens of rocket attacks against Israel since a truce expired just over a week ago, fired more salvoes that killed one Israeli man and wounded several others.

Kinda like, y’know, “oh, by the way, sorta kinda maybe Israel may have been, we dunno, perhaps a bit miffed ’cause Hamas was havin’ a bit of fun  with ‘em.”

Fuckin’ asshats at News.com.

If I were the Iranian dogs RightAboutNow™, I think I’d be a little worried.  Looks like Ehud’s chosen not to wait for the Obambi coronation, and is launching the predicted premptive strikes now.

Breaks my heart, it does.

Denizens, I was gonna do a rip-job on the Dullest Moaning Snooze  tonight for a man the excuse-for-a-human to whom they decided to give their yearly honor.

Then I saw this on Castle Arrrrgh! (h/t:  the SpatulaGoddess).

Spew warnings.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.  Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.  She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:  “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” – which means, “God with us.”

When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.  But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.


                      -Matthew 1:18-25

And may God add His blessings to the reading of His holy Word.

It doesn’t matter what shape the economy has taken.  It never has, and it never will.  For it’s still not about fat men in red suits, pine trees decorated in lights & ornaments, turkey, ham, pumpkin pie, Playstations, Xboxes or anything like that.

It is – and has always  been – about the birth of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, and about the beginning of His mission to save us from our sins.

And we’d do well to remember that.

Merry Christmas 2008, Denizens.

Denizens, we take turns doing this every year, it seems, and this year just happens to be Denizen and fellow blogger David Hartung‘s turn.

So, without further adieu, we bring you On The Annual Visit Of General Claus.

Go.  Shoo.  That’s an order.

Denizens, we’ll start the final Perfect Football Weekend™ of the season by noting that the Dallas C’girlz kicked the asses of the New York Football Douchebags, 20-8 – only to lose to a Baltimore team that isn’t that great, 33-24.

(Yes, I said “isn’t that great”.  Seriously, when was the last time some team just up and smacked Ray “Unindicted Criminal Thug” Lewis in the mouth?  It can  be done, y’know.  (For that matter, when was the last time the C’girlz smacked anyone  in the mouth???))

Anyway, they count, so the overall is now 59-18.

Let’s get to it.  Tonight is the rematch of the 2003 Fort Worth Bowl, as Gary Patterson’s 11th-ranked Texas Christian Horned Frogs play the ninth-ranked Broncos of Boise State Smurf Turf State in the Poinsettia Bowl.  TCU will be without starting lineback Robert Henson (academics), but the Smurfs will be without their precious Smurf Turf™, so let’s call it even.

Sunday, the C’girlz go to the City of Brotherly Shove to play the Phuckadelphia Beagles and The World’s Greatest Previously Benched Quarterback Ever In The History Of Ever, Ever™, Donna McCrabbs.

This is a de facto  playoff game for Dallas.  If the ‘Girls win, they play on.  If they lose, they go home and the cries for Coach Cupcake’s head on a platter get louder.

Damn, what a dilemma.

Thursday, January 1, Bo Pelini & the Nebraska Cornhuskers take on the Clemson Tigers in the Gator Bowl.  One hopes that Nebraska hasn’t forgotten how to play in a bowl game – under Pelini, this isn’t going to be the last one.

Saturday, January 3, Turner Gill’s UBuffalo Bulls travel to Canorkistan, uh, Canada, to take on the Connecticut Huskies

UConn’s previous football distinction was being the first team to lose to post-death-penalty SMUT.  Look for them to repeat that against the Bulls.

And finally, on Thursday, January 8, Bob Stoopes and the top-ranked Oklahoma Sooners play for the national championship against former Heisman winner Timmy Tebow and the 2nd-ranked Florida Gators.  It’ll be Guaranteed Loss Night™, because OU can’t keep up with the speedier SEC even when healthy – and the Sooners are definitely not  healthy (they’re missing RB DeMarco Murray and DT DeMarcus Granger, among others).  Look for a Florida romp here.

(Oh, and by the way – TU Shortdick fans? 39-33, dipshits.)

Recap and benediction will come on January 9th or shortly thereafter.

In the meantime, Bucky plays its bowl game on Saturday as they take on the Florida State Seminoles in the Champs Sports Bowl.  Which leads me to ask HDD – which is worse:  A bowl named after a city/state, or one named after a business?

Sorry, Denizens.  Don’t feel much like posting RightAboutNow™ – blood sugar is slightly elevated (in the same way that Kilimanjaro is a small hill), and it’s leaving me pretty exhausted in the evenings.  On top of that, it appears I’ve come down with a cold.

Oog.

Anyway, I’ll have your Bowl Edition PFW here sometime today.  I think.

As much as I love Sarah Palin, it’s times like this that I wish McFuckhead had picked Dick Cheney to continue on in the office.

In a blunt, unapologetic interview on “FOX News Sunday,” Cheney fired back at Biden for declaring in October that “Vice President Cheney has been the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history.”

“He also said that all the powers and responsibilities of the executive branch are laid out in Article I of the Constitution,” Cheney said in a interview that was conducted on Friday. “Well, they’re not. Article I of the Constitution is the one on the legislative branch.”

“Joe’s been chairman of the Judiciary Committee, a member of the Judiciary Committee in the Senate for 36 years, teaches constitutional law back in Delaware, and can’t keep straight which article of the Constitution provides for the legislature and which provides for the executive.

Oh, SNAP. 

Baron vonGaffemeister, being the sniveling little punkette that he is, couldn’t let it pass.

Biden bit back, however, in a dueling Sunday morning interview that aired on ABC’s “This Week” in which he said he stood by his statements.

“His notion of a unitary executive, meaning that, in time of war, essentially all power, you know, goes to the executive, I think is dead wrong. I think it was mistaken. I think it caused this administration, in adopting that notion, to overstep its constitutional bounds, but, at a minimum, to weaken our standing in the world and weaken our security. I stand by that — that judgment,” Biden said.

Gee, Senator Hair-Butt-Plug, isn’t that why the President is also known as the Commander-in-Chief, you dumbass?

Y’know, for someone who’s been…hmmm, let’s quote the Vice-President again…

been chairman of the Judiciary Committee, a member of the Judiciary Committee in the Senate for 36 years, teaches constitutional law back in Delaware

…you really don’t know a helluva lot, do you?

Hell, you can’t even tell the difference between someone who can stand on his own two feet and someone who can’t!

And to think, Denizens – 62 million dickheads in this country believed the Demoscummic lie that Sarah Palin wasn’t qualified to be one heartbeat away from the presidency, yet they elected this  boob.

Nice going, Ayatollah Obambi.  Way to pick yourself a running mate, there.

I bought a Chevy Cavalier back in 2005 to get away from Ford, in part due to:  1) horrendously shitty gas mileage from my F150, and 2) equally shitty customer service.

That, and I was boycotting the at the request of Mr. Wildmon.

However, Mr. Wildmon has since called off the boycott – and none too soon, either.  Because if I now want to buy a car from an American company, Ford’s my only option.

Because this morning, GM & Chrysler officially went on my shit list.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

When you thought of the conservative movement, you thought of names like Buckley, Reagan, Heston, Gingrich, Robertson & Buchanan (before the latter two went a little, uh, “eccentric”).

But you never thought of the name Paul Weyrich.  Primarily because he stayed pretty much in the background, organizing, writing and think-tanking.

Paul Weyrich was the first president of the Heritage Foundation and served as the chairman and CEO of the Free Congress Foundation, as well as being one of the fathers of the modern conservative movement, along with the aforementioned Buckley.  Paul Weyrich passed away early Thursday morning at the age of 66.

The conservative movement has lost a helluva man.  Mr. Weyrich will be sorely missed.
