I could learn to
like respect this guy.
The mayor of Moscow, known for his
overtly homophobic statementsuncommonly good common sense (Fixed it for ya, Andy -DV), said Monday that he would never allow a gay pride parade in the city, calling it “Satanic” and saying marchers should be punished.
“A gay parade… cannot be called anything but a Satanic act,” Yury Luzhkov told an education conference, quoted by Interfax news agency. “We haven’t permitted such a parade and we won’t permit it in the future.”
Hmmmm. And it’s bitterly cold in winter, too…
I may have to contact the SpatulaGoddess Emeritus and persuade her to take me on a tour.
Luzhkov called for gay marchers to be punished. “It’s high time that we stop propagating nonsense discussions about human rights, and bring to bear on them the full force and justice of the law,” he said.
Day-um. Can we nationalize him and have him run for president?
(There is precedent, y’know.)

Tom Brookshier passed away Saturday night at the age of 78. Those of The Six Or Seven who have followed football for any length of time will remember that, before John Madden, Pat Summerall teamed with Brookshier to form CBS’ #1 broadcast team during the 1970s – back when CBS had the rights to the NFC, including the Dallas C’boys.
Brookshier had a memorable interview, speaking of the ‘Boys, with Dallas running back/enigma Duane Thomas, who answered only one of Brookshier’s questions, and that with only one word – “Evidently” (when asked if Thomas really was as fast as advertised).
Which is, of course, why the Dullest Moaning Snooze elected to focus on the interview, rather than on Brookshier.

This is for you college football fans.
It seems that there is nothing that Papa Obama will not insert himself into.

Nancy Pelosi seems to think that She can freeze defense spending, and not affect the troops.
I am always hesitant to accuse others of lacking intelligence, but in this case, I may make an exception. Congressrat Pelosi is either stupid, or she is lying through her teeth.
I am the first to admit that the Defense Department wastes tons of money, but it is simply not possible to stop spending money with defense contractors and not affect the people. I would be more than willing to eliminate military waste fraud and abuse, but the last person in the world I would trust with that task is Nancy Pelosi.

Nah, I didn’t watch it. The replay aired on FNC while I was busy working a helluva lotta Unpaid Overtime working on two client machines, as well as prepping my “new”
And I had no desire to watch it, either. Everything Bambi spews out of his mouth is bullshit, so what’s the point?
OTOH, I can do something that actually relaxes me – working on computers – and actually have a little bit of fun.

(Hat tip to the beautiful Michelle.)
Anti-ACORN activist (and conservative hero) James O’Keefe has been arrested in New Orleans for allegedly trying to plant a listening bug inside excuse-for-a-Senator Mary “How Much Is That BambiCare In The Window” Landrieu’s office – one of four people likewise arrested.
Supposedly, there’s a confession by all four involved. Supposedly, this would appear to be an open-and-shut slam-dunk of a case.
But this is New Orleans. Demoscum-controlled New Orleans.
Something stinks here. And it ain’t just the swamp.
I imagine more will be revealed in the days to come. But there’s something not quite right about all this. Y’wanna call it conservative bias – fine, whatever. But I don’t trust my eyes about all that’s going on here, and neither should you, IYAM.

This guy has an idea that has been floated several times over the years. Only those who actually fund the government have any moral claim on the right to vote, while allowing those who are net recipients of government money to vote is a proven recipe for disaster.
The problem with this idea in our nation today is one of practicality. There is no way we will ever again be able to limit the vote to the net taxpayers, using peaceful means. The rabble and their self serving leaders would not stand for it.
This leaves only revolution, and revolutions do not have a record of putting rational, believers in limited government into power. Most often after a revolution, what you have is some blood thirsty tin pot despot in charge. Not the sort of environment to foster liberty.
In other words, the cure might well be worse than the disease.
The answer? Unfortunately, I don’t believe there to be one in the secular world. Ultimately the answer is to return to the foot of the cross, to repent, and to place our faith in him who gave his life for our sins, that we might have eternal life.
Faith in our Lord will not solve the problems with the world, it will not straighten out the lunkhead in the White House. Christian faith will not even guarantee you a nice pleasant earthly life. What it will do is to give you the strength to deal with whatever the world will throw your way, and it will give you the assurance of eternal life with Him.

Yeah, the temptation after you read this will be to call me a misogynistic troglodyte of a femiphobe. Or something.
Be my guest. See if I give a shit.
But this right here is People’s Exhibit Numero Uno (a little Spanish lingo, there) of why we’d have been a helluva lot better off had women never been given the vote.
A female Democratic lawmaker in footage released Sunday said Congress could pass healthcare if female lawmakers “sent the men home.”
Yeah? Well, we could balance the frickin’ budget – if we sent the bimbos home. How about that?
(We could also win the war in both theatres if we could just send the pussified Donks home – but that’s another post.)
Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-N.H.) said that both Republican and Democratic women members of Congress understand how to care for relatives and thus want the healthcare system to change.
“We go to the ladies room and the Republican women and the Democratic women and we just roll our eyes,” she said. “And the Republican women said when we were fighting over the healthcare bill, if we sent the men home…” at which point she was interrupted by loud applause.
I call bullshit here. I’m willing to wager here that it wasn’t applause – it was that fucking annoying “Awwwk, Awwwk!!!” crap we get outta this landfill of a TV talk show.
The IQ level sounds just about right.
“You know why? I’m not trying to diss the men
The fuck you’re not, trollop.
but I’m telling you it’s the truth that every single woman there has been responsible for taking care of a [relatives] and so we think we can find a common ground there,” she said.
Yeah, well, lemme tell you something, you stupid bint. The Sibling Unit and I took care of our Dear Sainted Grandmother for a helluva long time without any fucking female help, knowwhutAhmeanVern? Not a one of you pissweaselettes ever so much as asked if you could lift a finger to help, so don’t even give me this “responsible for taking care of [relatives]” shit. You can take that little bit o’ queef and shove it back where it came from, capíce???
The New Hampshire lawmaker’s comments come as Democratic leaders are debating alternative ways to pass the healthcare overhaul. Republican Scott Brown’s victory in the Massachusetts Senate primary has stalled the debate.
Awwwwwwwwww, did’ums we deny oo another widdle member for your widdle Nor’eastern quilting bee? Awwwwwwwwww. Po’ widdle buttercup.
Po’ widdle stupid cunt of a buttercup, that is.

Got this off the Yahoo! Sports site (good luck looking for it if you go there, just enjoy the anti-Minnehaha schadenfreude):

Karma’s a bitch, ain’t it, Brett?
You threw one pass too many last week, but you got away with it.
This week…not so much.
After a battered Brett Favre threw away the game with an interception deep in Saints territory at the end of regulation, Drew Brees guided New Orleans to the Minnesota 22. Hartley, suspended at the start of the season for using a banned stimulant, split the uprights.

…you’re watching “Star Wars” in the theatre and when they say, “May the force be with you,” the theatre replies, “and also with you.”

This clown simply does not get it. In this piece, Brother Obama tells us that he will never stop “fighting for us”. A large part of our nation’s problem is that we have far to many hack politicians “fighting for us”.
I have a proposal. Let’s make it a policy that any politician who says that he will “fight for us”, is removed from office at the next election, to be replaced with someone who will actually leave us alone!

It’s been a damned good week to be a conservative, y’know?
First, we had Scott Brown’s unlikely win in the Massachusetts Senate race on Tuesday.
Then Thursday, the Supreme Court pretty much eviscerated McRINO-Feingold.
The decision reverses a 1990 ruling by the court that allowed the government to bar corporations and unions from spending general treasury funds on ads expressly urging a candidate’s election or defeat. And it overruled part of a 2003 decision that upheld restrictions on independent corporate expenditures enacted the preceding year in the seminal campaign finance overhaul act known as McCain-Feingold.
Naturally, the libtards are bitching – which is why it’s a good thing.
Fred Wertheimer, a longtime advocate of McCain-Feingold, called today’s ruling “the most radical and destructive campaign finance decision in Supreme Court history” and said the court’s majority had “abandoned longstanding judicial principles, judicial precedents and judicial restraint.”
The authors of the law, Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), expressed disappointment in the ruling, with Feingold calling it “a terrible mistake.”
“Ah. Victory. It has a sweet taste.” -Trelane
And to top it all off…Air Scaremerica had the proverbial fork stuck in ‘em.
Air America Radio, a radio network that was launched in 2004 as a liberal alternative to Rush Limbaugh and other conservative commentators, on Thursday shut down abruptly due to financial woes.
The network once boasted hosts such as Al Franken and Rachel Maddow, but struggled from the outset, including multiple management shake-ups, a bankruptcy in 2006 and sale for $4.25 million the following year.
Air America ceased airing new programs Thursday afternoon and said it will soon file to be liquidated under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It began broadcasting reruns of programs and would end those as well Monday night.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of turds, eh?
Wasn’t too long ago that the Left was crowing about the impending implosion & extinction of the Right. “Nobody likes you”, they were saying. “A regional, backwoods party, only viable in the racist South”, they were bleating.
Funny thing about crow. Lot more fun to do it than it is to eat it.

When last we left Our Intrepid Hero, he had just received a
tongue keyboard-lashing by Dan Riehl for having the chutzpah to question him.
K’HADIBAK’H: You were properly chagrined, no doubt.
VENOMOUS: No doubt.
Posted by Darth Venomous @ 7:00
So when we last left off, Dan Riehl was starting to take Sarah Palin to task, not so much for choosing a Tea Partiers’ convention over the national CPAC, but for reportedly accepting between 75 & 100 large to come & speak. (You can find the category here, and cross-reference it with this Tea Party category. I don’t have time or inclination to go through and analyze for you guys each & every jot & tittle Dan’s written; you can do that for yourselves if that suits your fancy.)
But when he started in on Glenn Beck like this…
