Looks like the “Annointed One” ain’t all that.
D’uh. We all knew that any way.
Well check out this lovely gem from PolitiFact.
Anyone wanna start a pool on how many will get broken within the first 100 days?
Here’s the promise:
To reduce bills rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them, Obama “will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.”
Here’s what happened:
But the first bill Obama signed into law as president — the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act — got no such vetting.
In fact, the Congressional Record shows that the law was passed in the Senate on Jan. 22, 2009, passed in the House on Jan. 27, and signed by the president on Jan. 29. So only two days passed between the bill’s final passage and the signing.
The legislation was not posted to the White House Web site for comment in any way that we could find.
I know, I know, I know…..no surprises.

(Hat tip to the beautiful & talented Michelle.)
There’s hope for the GOP yet.
Former Maryland lieutenant governor Michael Steele has been elected to the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee.
Steele is an unabashed, unapologetic conservative, the first since Haley Barbour in this humble scribe’s opinion.  He will provide dynamic leadership as we strive to rebuild the party from the disasterous era of “compassionate conservatism” and Demoscum-lite-ness.
Congratulations, Mr. Steele.  The Realm™ has your back, sir.

Initial reports are what we would expect.
The state Senate initially voted 59-0 for removal, a second vote (due to a technical glitch) is occurring now and appears to be running on par with the initial vote.
More as it happens.
(UPDATE #1): Reports show that the recount ended with the same results, 59-0 to remove from office.

Libtards for the last eight years kept trying to bullshit us right-thinkers about how President Bush had the IQ of a pet rock.  Same dipshits who keep crowing about how we supposedly finally  elected the so-called “smartest man in the room” to replace him.
Have to wonder about that, ‘specially when the Ayatollah Obambi apparently can’t tell the difference between a door and a window.
It looks like President Obama hasn’t gotten acquainted to his White House surroundings. On the way back to the Oval Office Tuesday, the President approached a paned window, instead of the actual door — located a few feet to his right.
Typical dumbfuck Demoscum, all right.
Doors didn’t open automatically for Obama’s predecessor either. While making a hasty exit from a 2005 press conference in Beijing, former President George W. Bush tugged on the handles of a door, only to find it locked.
At least Bush recognized it as a door, leftist dumbshits.
And to think – we’ve just turned the keys of the country over to this moron.

Here’s yer money quote for today, Denizens.  Comes from the mental vacuum of (where else?) Washington, DC:
Many damaging effects of climate change are already basically irreversible, researchers declared Monday, warning that even if carbon emissions can somehow be halted, temperatures around the globe will remain high until at least 3000.
“People have imagined that if we stopped emitting carbon dioxide, the climate would go back to normal in 100 years, 200 years; that’s not true,” climate researcher Susan Solomon said in a teleconference.
In the meantime, it’s 36 balmy degrees in Beautiful Downtown Dallas™ as I type this, with a high on Tuesday expected to skyrocket to…34.
Oh, and we’ve got ice storm warnings all over the place for today.
Global.  Warming.  My.  Fucking.  Ass.

Last week, two girls “hah skrewl” (a little Rush lingo, there) basketball teams played a game.  And one team showed obvious superiority over the other.  Perhaps you heard about it.
Kinda reminded me of some of the games I had to witness between my Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets and Fort Worth Dunbar’s perennial Texas HS champion Wildcats.  (For the Uninitiated™, I was the Jackets’ BB manager at the time, so I didn’t have much choice – I had  to watch those debacles.)  In fact, I imagine a few of you SMU
T types could probably relate.  Especially those of you who were around for a certain game back in 1989.
It goes a long way towards showing, IYAM, just how pussified our country has become.  A coach’s team runs it up on an opponent who, quite frankly, shouldn’t even be on the same court with any team in that league in the first place, and that coach gets his ass bitched at and dumped.  Hell™ – as much uproar as there is over this nationally, it’s a damned wonder said winning coach hasn’t yet been accused of child abuse.
Don’t get me wrong.  I’m all for sportsmanship.  But I also think that, if you’re going to play, play.  Dallas Academy’s coach could have chosen to take his team off the floor after three quarters – or better yet, refused to come out after halftime – and the score would have automatically become 2-0.  Two-zip doesn’t quite look as imposing as 100-0, y’know?
But DA’s coach didn’t do that.  He kept running them out there, and they kept trying.  And they kept failing.
And there’s no shame in that.
I mean, c’mon.  This is a high-school game, for Cthulu’s sake.  No one’s fewwings  are going to be long-term hurt over this.  No one is going to suffer some sort of psychosis over being on the short end of a 100-0 score.  For there to be this  kind of reaction to the final score – and for the winning coach to lose his job over it – is just flat-out asinine in the extreme.
But that’s what you get when you’ve become a country full of pussies.

Hey!  What’s up with this?
I thought the Ayatollah Obambi was going to change  the way Bush’s War Machine™ did things!  I thought we were going to fix our image abroad, like Jugears McHopenchange said  we were going to do!
When are we going to see Code Pink march in protest, hm?  When is Cindy Shitcan, the Anti-War Whore™ going to set up a tent city in from of the White House and demand an audience with His Royal Highness?  When are we going to hear from CAIR and Iraq Veterans Against the War, hmmmmmmmm???
MERLIN:  Don’t hold your breath, m’liege.
VENOMOUS:  I never do, Wizard.  That’s what I’ve got you for.
Wizard does have a point, though.  Five’ll get you ten we never hear a peep from the anti-war chickenshit brigades.
It’s their  missles and their  drones now, y’see, and their Messiah can’t possibly  do anything wrong…now can he?

Hmmmm.  Seems the Ayatollah has a grossly overinflated opinion of himself.
President Obama listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning – but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. “I won,” Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation.
Let’s get one thing straight, you jugeared little needle-dicked fuckface:
You stole an election.  You had your thuggish little ball-less goons at ACORN throw up thousands upon thousands of illegal voter registrations and got help from the illegal alien voting bloc.  You did not  win this election, you fucking stole  it.
And that’s not even taking into account that you’ve failed to prove that you’re even eligible to serve in the damned office to begin  with.
So get off your fucking high horse, asshole.  You’re nothing but an empty-suit Chicago machine politician who doesn’t even have the majority of cojones  in his own family.
Got that, skank-boy?

All of us are patently aware that there’s more and more month at the end of the money these days. We’re also aware that banks, mortgage lenders, and potentially the automakers are getting a bailout — which ends up coming out of our (as in yours and mine) pockets…..emptier as they’re getting.
But when you read this article, prepare for a RCOB moment (as Darth is so famous for using) or at least keep a roll of duct tape handy to keep thy noggin’ from ‘splodin.
Today taxpayers are supporting our former presidents to the tune of more than $2.9 million. Their yearly salary pension is $191,000. Aside from that, each gets a staff; that staff costs you, the taxpayer, $96,000 per president.
Yeah, ain’t that just speh-shulllllll to quote the Church Lady from SNL.
But it should come as no surprise as to who the greediest bastard is when expecting us to pay for his “bills” is. Read and prepare for the RCOB. Duct tape is optional.
You have been warned.

Captain Gaffetastic strikes again.
Vice President Biden took a stab at Chief Justice John Roberts on Wednesday, one day after the chief justice flubbed the oath of office that President Obama was to recite at his inauguration.
Biden was to swear in senior executive staff at a White House ceremony after having already given the oath to newly confirmed Cabinet secretaries. When Obama reminded him that he had only done the one group and hadn’t done the second yet, Biden quipped, “My memory is not as good as Chief Justice Roberts.”
Maybe Roberts didn’t want to follow your example as a plagiarizer, assmunch.
And then we’ve got his boss, the Ayatollah Obambi, whom methinks doth protesteth too much in revamping the Freedom of Information Act, in what appears to be an attempt to launch a criminal investigation against President Bush.
In one of his first official actions, President Barack Obama on Wednesday unveiled plans to strengthen the Freedom of Information Act, a key open-records law used by journalists and interest groups to track government activities.
“The way to make government accountable is make it transparent so that the American people can know exactly what decisions are being made, how they’re being made, and whether their interests are being well served,” he said while welcoming senior staff to the White House.
Obama has instructed staff members to err on the side of those seeking information in interpreting Freedom of Information laws.
This from the dickless wonder that still – STILL!!!  – hasn’t produced a valid birth certificate proving that he’s a natural born United States Citizen, and thus eligible to even be where he is today.
PotKettleBlack™ much, Obambi, you dumb little testicularly-challenged fuckwit?
And you bastards in Al-Obambi might wanna think twice about trying to hold President Bush criminally responsible for protecting us all these years.
You leftist bastards might not like how we react to something like that.

For those that haven’t turned on the TV or haven’t looked at the news websites (which around here means exactly no one since Darth and I are aware of how up-to-date all 3 of you are on current events)….Hitlary was confirmed as Slutkitary of State-less earlier today by a 94-2 vote. After reading this article though, it seems there are still some unanswered questions.
While there is some slightly minor redeeming value that Cornyn was holding up the proceedings…..he was NOT one of the two to vote against the confirmation. That was left to Republican senators Jim DeMint of SC and David Vitter of LA, as confirmed by RollCall in this article……my question is — who were the senators that abstained or were not present to vote (aside from Herr Chappaquiddick)?
Another thing that the RollCall article mentioned, and that I found VERY interesting was this:
In a strongly worded floor speech, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, demanded support for Clinton’s installment. Soon after his remarks, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he “enthusiastically” supported her.
Rush nailed it pretty well when he said this on today’s show:
… But I have learned from this, I have learned from the past 24 hours, Mr. Snerdley, I understand what it’s all about now. I am the Last Man Standing, ladies and gentlemen, with all of you, too, but I’m talking about it in terms of national figure. There’s nobody in the Republican Party, there is no elected Republican Party leadership. I’m it. I am the one resisting the tug of popular sentiment. The whole country — well, not the whole country, but a good portion of the whole country has checked their brains at the door. They have just gotten caught up in this wave of popular sentiment. Newt Gingrich is caught up in it, Tom Coburn is caught up in it, the entire Republican Party, except maybe John Cornyn and Jeff Sessions, are caught up in it. Kay Bailey Hutchison running for Texas in 2010, she’s not caught up in it, but most of the conservative media totally caught up in the tug of popular sentiment.
Okay, so there’s gonna be some argument about that last part…..but for the most part he’s right.
Hope y’all are stockpiling (or have been for some time now), cause it’s gonna get ugly fast folks.

Boy howdy, that $170 million inauguration sure fired up Wall Street, didn’t it?
The dawn of the Obama presidency could not shake the stock market from its dejection over the rapidly deteriorating state of the banking industry.
Financial stocks, many of them falling by double digit percentages, led a huge drop on Wall Street Tuesday that left the major indexes down more than 4 percent and the Dow Jones industrials down 332 points. Although traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange paused to watch the inauguration ceremony and Obama’s remarks, the transition of power didn’t erase investors’ intensifying concerns about struggling banks and their impact on the overall economy.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 332.13, or 4.01 percent, to 7,949.09, its lowest close since Nov. 20, when the blue chips ended at 7,552.29 — their lowest point in more than five years. It was also the blue chips’ biggest drop since Dec. 1.
It was the worst Inauguration Day performance for the Dow, according to the article.
And you can’t blame Bush for this one, Donktards.  I mean, not that I haven’t been blaming the Ayatollah for everything bad that’s happened since November – I have – but you can’t even argue with me on this one now.  This one gets pinned on your empty suit – no ifs, ands or buts about it.
Enjoy the next four years, Donktards.
