One of Texas Christian University’s first bona fide legends, “Slingin’ Sammy” Baugh, has passed at the age of 94.
Sammy Baugh was the last surviving member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s inaugural class.
After starring at TCU, “Slingin’ Sammy” Baugh played with the Redskins from 1937 to 1952.
While he was noted for his passing, Baugh was one of the best all-around players of his day. One season he led the league in passing, defensive interceptions and punting. In one game, he threw four touchdown passes and intercepted four passes. He threw six touchdowns in a game – twice – and kicked an 85-yard punt.
Sammy Baugh was an outstanding punter, quarterback and defensive back for TCU in the mid-1930s.
“There’s nobody any better than Sam Baugh was in pro football,” Don Maynard, a fellow West Texas Hall of Famer who played for Baugh, said in a 2002 interview. “When I see somebody picking the greatest player around, to me, if they didn’t go both ways, they don’t really deserve to be nominated. I always ask, ‘Well, how’d he do on defense? How was his punting?”‘
Godspeed, Sam. We coulda used a man of your skill & heart against Boise, and beyond. We’ll miss you down here.

Denizens, remember when Shrubya was first inaugurated? The streets of DC were lined with limp-wrists, pussies, chickenshits and other assorted leftist bastards protesting Bush’s victory.
(Side note to leftard fucksticks: It’s been eight years not, and Bush still has never trailed in Florida. Suck it, asswads! )
Remember, too, how the Lame Stream Mediots were all over it like white on rice?
Fast-forward eight years, and now one of the same extra-chromosome leftard rags that shrieked from the rooftops about how dissent was “patriotic” and “American” and all…won’t even allow so much as a critical paid advertisement during the
inauguration coronation of the Ayatollah Obambi.
“Dissent is the highest form of patriotism,” the Left was found of reminding us again and again during the Bush administration, particularly after the commencement of hostilities in Iraq. So now that Barack Obama is assuming office on January 20, surely patriotic liberal newspapers like the Washington Post will publish paid classified advertisements by conservatives that are critical of the soon-to-be-inaugurated President Obama, right?
Eh, not so much, reports FishbowlDC, noting that the fine print for the Washington Post’s inaugural congratulations classifieds holds that “all ads must be congratulatory in nature” and that the Post “reserves the right to reject any notice.”
Meaning that the “notices” that WaPo
op will “reserve the right to reject” will all be the ones critical of Flopears McHopenchange, of course. Can’t have any negativity surrounding the MESSIAH!!!. Wouldn’t be patriotic, y’know.
But I’d love to see their reaction the next time one of their
partisan hacks reporters got hauled up short on something and started caterwauling about “free speech”, y’know?

Denizens, your homework assignment is to read this treatise by Limbaugh.
Here’s a sample to whet your appetite:
General Powell says we need to reach out to Hispanic, blacks, and Asians. Well, how do we do that? What kind of message does he suggest? I never hear the “how” to do it. I just hear we need to do it. And in my mind, we already have the blueprint for how to do it. We have done it successfully. We abandoned the blueprint. It’s called individual freedom, liberty, and not seeing them as Hispanics and not seeing them as Asians and not seeing them as blacks or minorities, but rather seeing them as Americans, human beings.
Read it all.
And fuck you, Colin Powell.

Y’know, Denizens, it’s bad enough when we have atheist
fools bigots fools & bigots try to take away our joy during Christmas season.
But now we have the dumbshits can’t even figure out what’s sacred and what’s secular.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was almost grounded at Murrayville Elementary School this week after a parent complained about the classic Christmas song’s inclusion in her daughter’s upcoming kindergarten concert.
The objecting parent was upset about the words “Christmas” and “Santa” in the song, feeling that they carried religious overtones.
Okay, this is freakin’ Rudolph. The reindeer. With the effin’ glow-in-the-dark red nose.
Has ZipZeroNadaBupkis to do with anything religious.
But don’t take my word for it. Here, have a look at the lyrics:
Lyrics to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.
All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
join in any reindeer games.
Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say:
“Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”
Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you’ll go down in history!
Anyone who can show me the slightest connection with the Christ child gets a Spatula City BBS! shirt, courtesy of yours truly.

Getting bad when Al-Obambi’s economy starts eating into their own, hm?
Today it was 65 NPR layoffs. This after the Tribune Company (LA Slimes, Shit-cago Fib-une, Chicago Cubs) filed for Chapter 11 earlier this week and the NY Slimes desperately sought to stave off the same fate by mortgaging its own building.
Couldn’t happen to a
nicer shittier bunch of folks. Brings a tear to me eyes, it does.

Deathknyte over at the Rott reports that:
obama’s pastor of choice has declared that on December 7th, 1941 the United States dropped a nuclear weapon on Hiroshima killing 80,000 Japanese civilians and a few days later dropped another to kill 64,000 more.
Soon as I get a link, the rip job will commence.
UPDATE: Can’t find a link that quotes the son-of-a-bitch, but Rush has a transcript (thanks, General).
RUSH: Here’s Jeremiah Wright from the pulpit, triumphant return, Trinity Church in Chicago this past Sunday.
WRIGHT: Today is December 7th, the day that this government killed over 80,000 Japanese civilians at Hiroshima in 1941, two days before killing an additional 64,000 Japanese civilians at Nagasaki by dropping nuclear bombs on innocent people.
Jackassimiah Wrong, you fuckheaded, dumbshit, needle-dicked son-of-a-crack-whore-bitch.
My father served in the military during World War II, you motherfucker. My father, and the fathers of a helluva lotta Americans – including, you skank-assed piece of shit, some of the members of your own congregation.
Fuck you, asscrust. And fuck every putrid piece of shit who so much as put hands together once in applause.
I just hope I get to be there when God judges your smarmy little pisspot racist ass, you fucking bastard.
And get it straight, dumb fuck. We didn’t drop any bombs on December 7th, 1941 – we had them DROPPED ON US, you stupid-assed, shit-for-brains moron.

If the fact that the banks, Wall Street firms, and now the Big 3 automakers sauntered up to the Congressional handout window begging wasn’t bad enough…now we find out what they were doing BEFORE they ventured to D.C.? This article here will give you a good idea of some of those things.
Key industry actors in the current financial crisis gave $14 million to conventions, CFI reports. The following are some of its findings:
- Freddie Mac gave $500,000, half to each committee.
- Ford Motor Company donated $200,000 for the conventions, half to each host committee (Also, Kirk Kerkorian, Ford’s largest shareholder with ties to GM and Chrysler, gave $3.5 million).
- General Motors provided 735 new cars to the Democratic and Republican Party convention committees for elected officials’ use.
- American International Group, or AIG, gave $1.5 million split evenly between the two committees
- Hedge funds and their managers gave $3.9 million – $2.7 million to Republicans and $1.2 million to Democrats.
- Investment companies including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan Chase, UBS and Lehman Brothers, gave $1.5 million.
- Other financial institutions that have received or are eligible for bailouts, such as Citigroup, U.S. Bancorps, Wells Fargo and Bank of America, donated $2.9 million – much of it was given to the Republican committee.
Yet each and every one of these firms have either requested or have received some of OUR (meaning yours and mine) hard-earned money in the form of bailouts. As we all know, if you or I were to make that sort of transaction and then come begging for money four months later — we’d be told “so sorry, but you f—ed up and now you have to suffer the consequences”.
Don’t you find it interesting that the folks in D.C. just do not get the clue that “bigger” is not “better” when it comes to the size of government. We the people are making it clearer to them that we’re not wanting bigger, but they just smile and nod and then
behind our backs right in front of our faces are proceeding to nationalize what little manufacturing capabilities this country HASN’T sold out to the Chinese.
“If the executives who have come to Washington, hat in hand, looked familiar to members of Congress, maybe it’s because they met over the summer at the conventions,” CRP Executive Director Sheila Krumholz said in a statement. “The conventions provided representatives of major corporations and industries with many opportunities to interact with Washington’s decision-makers. Those conversations may have paid off just weeks later, when the government started handing out money to those companies and industries that are struggling.”
No wonder the Big 3 CEOs looked so comfortable on the C-SPAN cameras and not like someone who was called in to the office knowing you’re about to be handed a pink slip. Which is clearly what needs to be happening, instead of being given $10M bonuses or allowed to make use of their so-called “golden parachutes”.
Does it not just PISS you off when the message being sent out by these bailout is “Yo big biz, go ahead fail….we’ll reward you all the same. It’s OUR money anyway…”? Gee what a wonderful message to send to a generation that ALREADY has the entitlement mentality!!!!
Need we ponder any longer on why the US is not mentioned in Revelations? Nope, I don’t think so either.

The Department of “Gee, Why Didn’t I Think Of That?” alerts us to this future Neiman’s catalog item – a female robot.
One wonders what the feminazis at
NAG NOW would think about this.
Devoted Aiko — “in her 20s” — has a stunning 32-23-33 figure, pretty face and shiny hair.
She is always happy to clean the house for “husband” Le, help with his accounts or get him a drink.
Computer ace Le, 33, from Ontario, Canada, has spent two years and £14,000 building his dream girl.
Hey, let’s outfit her in a mink coat. Get PETA pissed off at “her”, too.

Hmmmm. Today seems to be a peaceful day. Other than the pathetic gnashing of Demoscummic teeth over Blagobitch, we’re not really seeing a bunch of whining today.
“We’re a gay couple in West Hollywood, neither of us involved in activism, but we just wanted to help,” said Sean Hetherington, 30, a stand-up comic who was the first openly gay contestant ever to do battle, however briefly, in the Gladiator Arena. “And we were amazed at what happened.”
Mr. Hetherington and his companion were among several people surprised by the strength of positive reaction after starting Web sites geared toward a demonstration planned for Wednesday, “Day Without a Gay.” Its organizers are asking gay rights supporters to avoid going to work by “calling in gay” and volunteering in the movement instead.
Anyone out there being inconvenienced by the “strike” on the part of the Lazy-Assed Limp-Wrists?
Nah, didn’t think so…
But Malkin reader Send_Me has the line of the day about it, I think:
If folks call in “gay”, then their employers should respond with a pink slip.

strongman governor of Ill-noise has been arrested and taken into custody:
llinois Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich and his Chief of Staff, John Harris, were arrested today by FBI agents on federal corruption charges alleging that they and others are engaging in ongoing criminal activity: conspiring to obtain personal financial benefits for Blagojevich by leveraging his sole authority to appoint a United States Senator; threatening to withhold substantial state assistance to the Tribune Company in connection with the sale of Wrigley Field to induce the firing of Chicago Tribune editorial board members sharply critical of Blagojevich; and to obtain campaign contributions in exchange for official actions – both historically and now in a push before a new state ethics law takes effect January 1, 2009.
Or, as they call it in Shit-caca, “business as usual”.
And you damnfools just elected one of The Machine’s own. Nice.

The Department of Bait And Switch brings us this alert about the Leftards getting a mite antsy over those with whom the Ayatollah Obambi is surrounding himself for the Al-Obambi excuse-for-a-government.
Liberals are growing increasingly nervous – and some just flat-out angry – that President-elect Barack Obama seems to be stiffing them on Cabinet jobs and policy choices.
Obama has reversed pledges to immediately repeal tax cuts for the wealthy and take on Big Oil. He’s hedged his call for a quick drawdown in Iraq. And he’s stocking his White House with anything but stalwarts of the left.
“He has confirmed what our suspicions were by surrounding himself with a centrist to right cabinet. But we do hope that before it’s all over we can get at least one authentic progressive appointment,” said Tim Carpenter, national director of the Progressive Democrats of America.
OpenLeft blogger Chris Bowers went so far as to issue this plaintive plea: “Isn’t there ever a point when we can get an actual Democratic administration?”
You don’t suppose…(gasp!)…naw, it couldn’t be…(AIEEE!!!)…please, Maitreya, no…(GASP, ARRRRRRGH!!!!)…NOT THE THIRD BUSH TERM!!!!!!!!
(Insert all the s you can muster with the next 12 hours of oxygen.)
Now, Denizens – this is not to say that we’re about to be pleasantly surprised, okay? We’re not – this is still a needle-dicked, ball-less wonder of a socialist proon (gratuitous Star Wars novel alert!) with delusions of mere adequacy.
But to think, even for a second, that the pussies on the Left have gotten the political dildo shoved up their asses again…
…well, it do be to laugh, don’t it?

Hasn’t even started the new job and it seems the Demoscum have all the answers. Al-Obambi says our economy is going to get worse before it gets better (no schiatzu Sherlock), but to ensure it DOES get better the Manchurian Muslim is going to see to it that he extracts $1 trillion from us for a “stimulus” package. Go here for the details.
So how much IS $1 TRILLION exactly? Try this on for size:
Let me give you a handle on how big $1 trillion is. NASA has a budget. You know the people, they send up space planes and the space station and all the satellites and everything else that NASA does? NASA’s budget is $17 billion. The post office’s budget is $34 billion. The Department of Labor is 10, EPA is 7. Treasury, well, this has got to go up. Can you check on this, Joe? It’s only $12 billion, but they’ve got to be spending a lot more on ink and paper right now. Treasury department is $12 billion. Department of Energy is $24 billion. The Department of Transportation is $12 billion. Justice is $20 billion. Agriculture is $20 billion. Department of Interior is $10 billion. Department of Homeland Security is $120 billion. That’s $286 billion for all of those: NASA, post office, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Labor, EPA, Department of Treasury, Department of Energy, transportation, justice, agriculture, and interior, $286 billion. Obama wants a $1 trillion stimulus package. By the way, if you add in the defense budget, the Department of Defense budget for 2009 is $515 billion. Half a trillion dollars. Add that to all of the other departments I just gave you, that’s $801 billion. You still have $200 billion left before you reach the new Democratic stimulus package of $1 trillion.
Soooooo, given that as of last month the US population was 305,682,072….then that means the Demoncrappers “stimulus” package is going to cost each American roughly $3,271.37. Don’t know about you folks, but even my 401k doesn’t have that in spare change just ready to “give” to the government to get the economy jumpstarted.
Hey Al-Obambi, do us a favor. Get government out of the equation.
Like THAT is really going to happen.
