ITEM:  Demoscummic goober-natorial candy-ass-date Wee Willie White thinks term limits for the office of Texas governor is a hell of an idea.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill White said Tuesday that Texas governors should be limited to two four-year terms, a change he said would prevent incumbents from amassing too much power.

White is trying to unseat Republican Gov. Rick Perry, who’s seeking an unprecedented third full four-year term in the Nov. 2 election.

White, the former Houston mayor, said there should be a voter referendum on term limits and that he favors a proposed constitutional amendment that would have to be approved by voters.

One may make an educated guess that this is all because Wee Willie isn’t going to be able to unseat Rick Perry in November.

Because, Denizens, this is the same, exact Wee Willie White that also wanted to relax term limits for Houston’s mayor – if not remove them outright.

Mayor Bill White on Wednesday raised the specter of changing the term limits on Houston elected officials, urging City Council members to consider appointing a special commission to examine whether the restriction to three, two-year terms imposed by voters in 1991 has been too stringent.

Term limits are fine for Republicans.  For Demoscum – not so much.

Doesn’t this kinda remind you of the fracas up in Massa-chews-shits whereby the Demoscum-controlled state legislature passed a bill to remove the power of a governor to appoint an interim rep or senator for some poor schmoe who had just bit the bucket while in office, in order to keep then-governor Mitt Romney from appointing a Republican to replace a departed Democrat?  Then voted to reinstate said power for Duval Patrick so that he could appoint a Demoscum to fill in for Teddy “The Swimmer” Kennedy?

The Will Of The People™:  Void where Demoscum have anything resembling a say in how things are run.

Wee Willie White, you are a pathetic ass.

You heard it here first.  The C’girls are going nowhere  this year.

Dallas 7, at P-U-Stun 16, Fucking Needle-dicked Officiating 7

Sorry, didn’t see enough of any other game this weekend to give much of a recap.

The shitty officiating gets 7 because they took away a turnover from Dallas on a Demarcus Ware sack/fumble when the fucking zebra called defensive holding (it wasn’t – not even close).  The Tex-annes scored on the next fucking play.

Not that it mattered.  The offense was a no-show, as usual, but the defense simply allowed Matilda Schaub – who, it must be noted, would still be Michael Vick’s backup  in another reality – to play pitch-and-catch with Andrea Johnson, Mykki Walter and Jackoff Jones.  The fucking secondary offered only the barest hint  of resistance, allowing all three douchebags to run free all night.  The run defense, long considered a strength of this team, allowed a no-name back named Ariana Foster to gash them for 110 yards.

When Romo wasn’t running for his life behind a patchwork offensive line, he was pitching to Felix Jones – which might have worked, except Jonsey was expecting a handoff.  Sixty-three yards the other way later…

Coach Stay-Puf says he’s gonna work the starters some in the Miami game on Thursday, whereas he might not have otherwise.  Probably oughta work the entire fucking game, if you ask me.

So Thursday is when the PFW will return – and, as my Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets and the colleges get cranked up this weekend, so will we.

They count beginning next week.  Be here.

Denizens, I don’t much feel like writing today (surprise, surprise, after that POS effort by the C’Girls in P-U-Stun), so your homework assignment is to read this treatise by Cap’n John Doe.

I used to be able to write that good.  Wish I still had time to.

_____________________________________________________





There will be NO  communiques from the Southern Command™ of any  type for at least the next three weeks.

I trust I make myself clear.

Got a solicitation letter from the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) this morning…

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

_____________________________________________________





For this episode of the Perfect Football Weekend™, Denizens, I’m going to take the expected potshot at the fans of the Texas University Shortdicks Longhorns Shortdicks.

Hey, T-sips!  Yeah, you pinky-extended-from-the-teacup, limp-wristed, needle-dicked, give-us-back-our-one-second-on-the-clock douchebags!

Remember, Colt McCoy?  Yeah, that overhyped, overrated, under-talented third-round draft choice  that you faggots were absolutely certain  could have beaten Alabama’s top-ranked defense if only  he hadn’t gotten tapped on the shoulder and pinchy-ed hisself a nerve!

Yeah, that  one.

Turns out that Bwad’s Widdle Boy™…is probably not even going to be good enough to crack the Cleveland Browns’ roster.

McCoy was taken in the 3rd round of last April’s NFL Draft, but according to quotes from Browns coach Eric Mangini, his spot is far from guaranteed on the Browns’ active roster this fall.

“I’ve kept four as a head coach and have been on teams that have kept four as an assistant coach. I have also been on [teams that only kept] two,” Mangini said, according to ProFootballTalk.com.

Earlier this week, the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Tony Grossi listed McCoy among the members of the Browns who “need good showings in the last two games to make the roster.”.

The Browns’ top two spots seem cemented, with newly acquired Jake Delhomme pencilled in as the starter and Seneca Wallace a clear choice for the No. 2 QB.

Y’hear that, T-sips?  That’d be Seneca Wallace…of freakin’ Iowa State.

Iowa.

State.

Perennial Big XII One Less Than Eleven™ doormat.

Your football ghod  can’t even beat out Seneca freakin’ Wallace  for the number two spot.

Meanwhile, remember Sam Bradford?  Former OU quarterback and number-one draft pick of the St. Louis Rams?  The guy you swore up & down couldn’t carry Colt’s!!!!!  fuckin’ jock?

Tore up the Patriots the other day.

QB Sam Bradford didn’t look like a rookie. In fact, you couldn’t tell that he wasn’t a veteran by the way he played — a complete departure from his first two outings. He played with tremendous poise and threw with outstanding accuracy.

While his offensive line deserves a lot of credit, Bradford did a great job of throwing with timing and anticipation, two traits that even the best quarterbacks don’t display.

You never want to read too much into any preseason game, but Bradford was simply terrific. You can see clearly why they drafted him. He has a great feel for the passing game. He basically defeated New England’s pass rush by getting the ball out of his hands quickly.

Eh, what say you, T-sips?

(crickets)

Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Oh, and one other thing:  Not quite as easy  for ol’ Colt when he doesn’t have seventh-year pro  Jordan Shitty Shipley bailing out his ass, is it now?

Let’s go to the PFW.  It’s Cowboys-Pewstun Saturday night for something called the Governor’s Cup, which I think is a moldy old clay pot somewhere in Lwaxanna Troi’s closet.

KORRIOTH:  Uh, that would be the Sacred Chalice of Riix™, m’lord.

Whatever.  Anyway, it’s the so-called “dress rehersal” game, and it happens to involve two of the three major hubs of the Realm, namely us and the Southern Command.  Supreme General Rayegun, would you care to make anything resembling a wager on the outcome? Perhaps wings or somethin’?

We’re back Monday for the recap.  As has usually been the case this preseason, if there are any other games I happen to catch more than a glimpse of, I’ll chronicle ‘em here.

In the meantime, the floor is open for all trash talk.

Item:  Former House Speaker and Texas congressman Tom DeLay was cleared by the Justice Department the other day on corruption charges.

Tom DeLay, the former Republican speaker of the House of Representatives, said on Monday that he had been cleared by the Justice Department in its long-running political corruption probe.

[...]

DeLay resigned from Congress in 2006 amid questions about his ties to Abramoff and after he was indicted in his home state of Texas for alleged campaign finance violations, charges he is still fighting.

Two of his former aides pleaded guilty in the Abramoff scandal as did former Republican Representative Bob Ney, who admitted he illegally accepted trips, meals, concert tickets and other valuable items in exchange for official acts on behalf of Abramoff and his clients.

“It was good news to hear from the Department of Justice that I have been cleared,” DeLay told reporters during a conference call. “I always knew this day would come; my only hope was that it would come much sooner.”

Item:  The New York Slimes  twisted its panties in a knot over the news:

The Justice Department decided last week not to bring charges against Tom DeLay, whose unethical conduct represented a modern low among Congressional leaders. The decision is a reminder that some of Washington’s worst big-money practices remain either legal or far too difficult to prosecute.

(Side note:  Hey, Slimes?  Two words:  1) Clinton.  2) China.  Show a little angst & hand-wringing over that, and we’ll talk.)

Item:  Darleen Click over at Protein Wisdom  made note of this, but then couldn’t resist getting in a shot of her own:

Whatever one might think of DeLay’s ethical issues, and they are legion, the NYTimes again shows that when it comes controlling the micro actions of everyday living, no one wants it more or demands it more through legislation than the Left.

Uh, ex-squeeze me?  Baking powder?

“And they are legion”?

Uh, Darleen, I’m pretty sure the trackback will never make it over there, but I’m a little confused.

Perhaps you could explain, in your infinite  (cough) wisdom, to exactly which  “ethical issues” DeLay has to which you object…?

I seem to remember that Mr. DeLay was an excellent Speaker, managing to push through a conservative agenda through the first Bush term, and was only forced to resign using a Republican House rule that (surprise, surprise!) never has managed to keep a Demoscummic Speaker of the House from serving.  (Jim Wright, the Sleazer of the House, for one.)

I’ll just be sitting over here in the corner with my copy of the Federation-Shelliak peace treaty while you manage to sift through your notes and enlighten  us all as to what, exactly, DeLay actually did to earn the wrath of a saint  such as yourself.

For some reason, I imagine I’ll be waiting a while.

This team has problems.

Dallas 16, at San Diego 14

Pittsburgh 24, at NY Football Douchebags 17

The D-bags should be very good up front.  And very average in the secondary.

Bennie “Ididn’tdoitnobodysawmedoityoucan’tproveanything” Rothelisberger got his feet wet – 6-8 for 76 and a pick – but Byron “Statue” Leftwich torched the NY secondary for a 68-yard bomb to Mike Wallace for a score, part of an 80-yard night for him.

Yeah, it’s preaseason.  Yeah, they’re banged up.  Yeah, it’s a vanilla game plan.

Jimmy’s C’boys used to take the attitude of “You know what’s coming – try and stop it”.  (Worked, too, as I recall.)

The ‘Boys had one decent drive by the first unit, and one good drive by Kitna and the scrubbies (including a good series by Martellus Bennett, whom I didn’t think would play), plus a safety on a sack/fumble in the end zone in the fourth quarter.

Defense is gonna have  to carry this bunch for the first few weeks.  The offense ain’t gettin’ it done.

The PFW will return Friday for one last practice round before they start counting for real week after next.

_____________________________________________________





To start the week off with a smile, Denizens, I give you one that, believe it or not, I got from a liberal at Cap’n John Doe’s place.

Spew warnings.

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

Today’s blurb comes from the GrabBag™, courtesy of LC Rurik, who got it from one of his email friends via Australian Shooter Magazine  this past week.

“If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq Theater of operations during the past 22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.

The firearm death rate in Washington, DC is 80.6 per 100,000 for the same period. That means you are about 25 per cent more likely to be shot and killed in the US capital, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the U.S., than you are in Iraq.

Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington.

Damned straight.

Behold the savior  of the Texass stRangerS! 

(For the record, the Orioles – one of the worst teams in the American League, if not all of baseball – won the season series from Our Pathetic Wuss-asses™, 6-3, with one game to play.

The funny thing is that some morons around here actually think the stRangerS are actually gonna make it to the World Series.    )

Tonight’s edition of the Perfect Football Weekend™ begins, as promised, with the sad (awwwww!) news that C’boy wideout Miles Austin…is no longer dating Kim Kardashian.

ALL:  Awwwwwwwww.

MERLIN:  So I guess that means no Cabo distractions this year?

VENOMOUS:  One can only hope.

However, if you check out Lifestyle Weekly’s  cover, you’ll find the lusty, busty wench saying thusly:

Kim’s plans for marriage and kids are on hold.

Turning 30, she admits, “I never thought this would be my life”

Well, Kimmie, buttercup – maybe you should have told the boy to turn off the video camera during your little romp in the hay, huh?

Second item of note is of a happier bent:  Texas Christian University’s Amon G. Carter Stadium will (finally!) be getting that concrete-snd-steel surgery it’s been needing.

The idea to upgrade Amon G. Carter Stadium has been around for 50 years. In 2012, TCU’s then-82-year football stadium will have a finished face-lift.

TCU announced a long-rumored $105 million renovation project during a news conference Monday afternoon.

The stadium’s west side and north end zone will be completely revamped, thanks to 34 donors. The first $15 million donation came from the Amon G. Carter Foundation after TCU’s Board of Trustees created a stadium renovation committee in 2006.

The renovated stadium looks to hold about 40,000, which is less than the 47,000 or so it holds now.  OTOH, TCU’s good for about 30,000 or so every week, so it’ll be a little more intimidating for opposing teams that venture into the Purple Pit™.

OZY MCCOOL:  As in, more intimidating than it already is.

VENOMOUS

On to the PFW.  Dallas is in San Diego tomorrow night for Preseason Game Number Three™, and they’re a banged up lot, especailly up front on offense.  Marc Columbo had his knee scoped out this week, and Kyle Kosier sprained his MCL in the loss to the Raiders.  TE John Phillips is out for the year (knee), and Martellus Bennett (high ankle) still isn’t back yet, so we’ll see a bunch of no-namers backing up Jason Witten.

Could be a long night for Romo.

Defensively, we’ll see how they do against a halfway-competent offense in Phillip Rivers and the Norv Turner timing game of the Chargers.  Jason Garrett, take copious notes.

We’re back Monday or so for the recap.  In the meantime, c’mon, HDD.  Even a blurb about how you hate exhibition football.  Something just to lemme know yer alive, huh?

UPDATE:  HDD has been located.

According to the SpatulaGoddess (long may she exude massive quantities of hawtness), our biggest Bucky supporter has undergone something of a career change.  He is now in training to receive his Class A over-the-road license.

That’s right, Denizens – we gotz us a real-live trucker on our hands.  (Truck-stop cuties everywhere, beware – he’ll steal y’all’s hearts.    )

Godspeed, HDD.  We’re praying for you over this way.

Denizens, as some of you may know, I’ve long been an advocate of telling the Environmental (Nutcase) Protection Agency – to their face, if necessary – to go pound sand.

Lookit.  No one – least of all yours truly – wants to have to breathe dirty air and/or drink dirty water.  Conservatives country wide acknowledge that, yes and yes – it’s nasty and it’s nasty.  We get that, mkay?  At the exact same time, we have this thing about being told what to do and when/how to do it.  ‘Specially from outsiders.  With a particular predjudice against those from Warshington, DC.

It kinda got my hackles up, therefore, when I read the environ-mental case ‘tards were going to try to regulate…are you sitting down…?

…farm dust.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is considering a crackdown on farm dust, so senators have signed a letter addressing their concerns on the possible regulations.

Bullshit.  Instead of expressing their “concerns”, these half-assed congresscritters ought  to be sending a letter to the EPA threatening to completely, 100% defund the bastard agency  if they don’t get off their fucking high horse and act with some common sense.

Do y’all realize how many possible things can kick up dust on a farm?  Livestock, tractors, people walking across the dirt road – hell, even a windy effin’ day  can kick up a little sand.  What, EPA – you gonna attempt to fine that tornado?!  Best of luck to you trying to serve it the citation.

The first EPA retard who even attempts  to cite someone for kicking up dust should probably go back to being  dust, courtesy of…well, you know.

Dumb-shit ass-spelunkers.

San Fran Nan Piglousi wants to investigate those of us who oppose Cordoba House – i.e. the Ground Zero mosque:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Wednesday morning called for “transparency” in the funding behind a planned Islamic community center and mosque being built blocks from ground zero. But she also said there should be similar openness about the money behind conservative attacks aimed at thwarting the project.

[...]

Earlier Wednesday, Pelosi told San Francisco’s KCBS radio that “there is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some.”

“I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded,” she said. “How is this being ginned up?”

The power of the government brought to bear on ordinary, private citizens who believe this travesty to be a slap-in-the-face against Americans and don’t want to see it built at a spot two blocks from Ground Zero.

Libtards, just an advisory:  When our rights under the First Amendment are taken away from us…we’ll just have to go to the next one.

And remember, Denizens – this is the Party of Tolerance™:

There’s only one way the tragic airplane crash in Alaska that ended the life of former-U.S. Senator Ted Stevens could have been better, according to New Hampshire Democratic activist and State Rep. candidate Keith Halloran: If Sarah Palin had been on it.

In a Facebook post, Halloran, who describes himself as “an active local citizen and supporter of NH Governor John Lynch,” said of the plane crash, “Just wish Sarah and Levy were on board.”

[...]

Halloran isn’t alone among New Hampshire Democratic leaders in wishing ill toward the controversial former Republican Vice Presidential nominee.

Natch Greyes, a staffer for Democratic Rep. and Senate hopeful Paul Hodes tweeted the following on July 21st: “I have to wonder if & or when @sarahpalinusa will learn the meaning of our state motto: “live free or die.”

sNatch, you fucking asswipe, lemme tell you and your fellow chickenshit LaKeitha Halloran something:  When the SHTF, true patriots aren’t going to even consider  giving you the fucking “live free” option.

Let’s just say, pussy, that you’d best keep your distance and continue giving each other those rim jobs underneath the hoop skirts.

Cowardly bastards…
